Welcome! This site contains pictures of our current litters and development updates for our puppy families and friends. We invite you to visit our main web site for further info:
Milana was bred to Donovan and their 2 beautiful baby girls were welcomed to the Acadia family yesterday, 1/4/22!
Hope you enjoy watching them grow!
Both girls have homes.
Currently, there are no future litters planned.
I am not accepting questionnaires at this time.
Milana and Donovan Puppy Updates:
1/4/22 - The girls have arrived via c-section. No emergency, Milana had reached her due date and I felt that it would be safer being that there were only 2 good sized puppies. Surgery went well and Milana and her 2 babies are doing great! Puppies have good appitites and are nursing well!
Neo-Natal Period (1-14 days): During this time newborns are helpless and
completely dependent on their dams, responding only to her warmth, touch and
smell. They cannot regulate body functions such as temperature and
elimination. The position of a puppy when the dam is cleaning it and activating
elimination will actually become a ritualized submission position - the mother
teaches the submission position from day one. At this age, puppies sleep
90% of the time, only waking to suckle, a natural reflex. There are some
vocalizations at this age if hungry or in distress. Early Neurological
Stimulation, 5 specific exercises for 3-5 seconds, once per day, will begin on
day 3 and continue through day 16, benefiting puppies with improved
cardiovascular, stronger heartbeats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to
stress and greater resistance to disease.
1/6/22 - Early Neurological Stimulation started this afternoon!
1 week old today and first nail clipping - front paws only for now since they need their back claws for traction!
