My Rescue Story
Stuart came to our rescue as a Owner Release. He was a tiny little puppy then. His whole came into the rescue at the same time!
Stuarts momma was originally owned by a friend of a military family who left her behind. She got pregnant with the the male dog of the home because neither one of them were fixed. This accidental litter of 11 puppies, mom and dad, and the human family now caused issues in this home. It became apparent due to the size of the home and the large amount of dogs in this rental unit that it was a tight squeeze. Almost immediately after the puppies were born the landlord came knocking. It ultimately came to a point that the landlord gave notice to the human family that if the dogs were not removed from the home that they would have to start the eviction process. The family had one choice to either give up this family of dogs or to loose their roof over their head. To make matters worse the husband was in the military himself and the home was being paid for by his military housing allotment.
The family decided to reach out to our rescue to help them. As our board are made up of volunteers who work at jobs of their own, we needed to wait until they got off of work to accept the family. By the time board got to the home the family already have given away 2 of the puppies.
As 3 of the board members spoke to the family and signed off on ownership of the dog family, they had recommended that the human family learn about accidental litters, spay and neutering and back yard breeding.
As we arrived back at the rescue we evaluated all dogs and learned Caroline, the mom, was emaciated to the point that she was no longer producing milk for her young pups. We recalculated the pups were only 5 and a 1/2 weeks old, not 8 weeks old that was explained to us. We also saw Korvo, the dad, was on the thin side as well, even though a great pleasure to be around.
Our rescue started mom and Dad on food that would help gain weight and bring back health. We had to be very careful with mom as we needed to put weight on but not change the balance of producing good milk for the pups.
Now as time has moved on, some of Stuarts Family has found homes as Stuart waits for his perfect home!
Stuart is now up to date, fixed and chipped and ready for his forever home!
The Meaning of my name:

JASON STUART THRONE
On the evening of May 2, 2019, Jason Throne was at work in the shop at his employer’s towing company. He was working on a piece of equipment in the shop as he had done many times before.
This time tragedy struck when the unit powered up in gear and ran over Jason killing him.
My Medical Status
Thanks to Hooks Home Bound Rescue, I am completely up to date on shots, Fixed and Micro-chipped. I am also cleared for adoption at any time!
As Stuart grow he has learned to be a great family pet with an awesome personality. Even though he becomes shy at first he will warm up with another dog! It would be best to have one of his Brothers or sisters to join him in a new home together as he might get a little depressed. He loves to play and be the center of attention but he is not a begger of attention
