Breed: Australian Shepherd
Current Location: Leoanrd TX
Adoption Date: October 5, 2019
Adopted by: Tyffany and Nathan Underwood
Tyffany and Nathan Underwood from Leonard, TX were all set to adopt Gorilla. Just 2 days before the adoption was to take place, it was discovered that Gorilla was pregnant. They have been waiting a very long time to take this girl home. They have 2 boys that really wanted to add a puppy to the family as well. Unfortunately all of the puppies were spoken for. While they were waiting for Gorilla to wean the puppies, little Abu just happened to become available again. Tyffany and Nathan decided to adopt Abu but kept it a secret to surprise the boys. They arrived today thinking they were just visiting Gorilla and were so thrilled to learn that not only was it time to take Gorilla home but they were going to adopt Abu also. Gorilla’s new name is Ellie and Abu’s new name is June. The Underwoods are previous DRR adopters of Bordeaux Chrissy. We are so excited to see these 3 rescue dogs together on the Happy Tails page very soon.
Early in the morning Jenn said she heard some low cries and she went and checked on Gorilla and sure enough she already had 2 babies. Her temperature never dropped so she was not going to do things according to the text book.
She quickly gave birth to all of the rest and we ended up with 7 when we expected 6. Unfortunately, despite Jenn’s best efforts, the little girl didn’t make it.
The rest of the pups are doing well and are very robust according to Dr Reno.
Say hello to Abu!
