As hard as it may be to believe, these adorable pups have been abandoned and are on the lookout for new owners.

The eight-week old Jack Russell crosses, with their sad puppy dog eyes, are among a record 16 puppies in only five days taken into one Welsh rescue centre.

‘They are really cheeky, playful little things, so I’m hopeful we should be able to find good homes for them,’ said Nicky Owen from North Clwyd Animal Rescue. . . .

Inspired by the Westminster Dog Show, and in need of a smile, I decided to post this story from 2 weeks ago.

Who can look at puppies and not smile!

If I were in a position to, I'd adopt the second from the left.

Second from the right is a good choice and must be named Kilroy.

Intelligent-looking little doggies but they look more like Pit Bulls than Jack Russells.

Time to share an email I received this morning;)
__________________________________________________________
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker ‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ‘’I know why.’’

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said,’’People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?’’ The Six-year-old continued,

‘’Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.’’

I thought you saw the one on the left..”winking” at you! LOL

I like the “needy” one in the middle. Says something about me, I guess.

Look at those nails...get the clippers!

He is a darling too.

My pup is now 8 lbs and 12 weeks old. Kato is a sweet boy, and I did ask for the quietest one!

One JR is a handful.

My daughter used to "dogsit" for a family that had three. I can totally agree with your comment, LOL.

I agree they really don't look anything like Jack Russell puppies...

There is more of a pitbull resemblance...

My best guess is they're cute little mutts of indeterminate heritage. :-)

Darling little Shih Tsu.

Gift from a dear friend, and FReeper, who thought I needed a new pal after the loss of my rat terrier, Romeo. He was a sweet dog and this one is going to be the same, I think.

Plenty of puppies available from the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County if you live in the southern CA area. More along the way since a recent rescue is about to have a litter.
