If you are looking for a bundle of puppy love to make you smile, then you definitely need to meet Nutmeg and the “Spice Babies!” Nutmeg and her siblings — Rosemary, Sage, and Basil — were only about 8 weeks old when they found themselves abandoned. Fortunately, they were rescued and arrived at Green Hills Animal Shelter on December 30, 2022; just in time to start the New Year in a safe, loving environment. When the Spice Babies first arrived at the shelter they were cold, skinny, and full of worms, but those days are now behind them and these roly-poly, healthy pups are ready to share their joy for life in Forever Homes of their own.
Darling Nutmeg has the distinction of being the smallest of the Spice Babies Litter, but that doesn’t mean she will be small forever. You see, we’re not 100% sure of Nutmeg’s exact breed, but our best guess is a mix of Shepherd and Mastiff which means that even though Nutmeg is the runt of her litter now, she is going to be a big girl when she grows up! But for now, Nutmeg is a pint-sized charmer. She is sweet, wiggly, and happy, and she loves to give you all the kisses she possibly can! In addition to loving people, Nutmeg gets along well with other dogs, and playing and wrestling with her siblings is one of her favorite activities. She loves her chew toys and treats, but this sweet girl isn’t selfish; she happily shares her toys and her food bowl with her siblings.
If Nutmeg could describe her perfect Forever Home, she would ask for an indoor home with a family who loves puppy kisses and who understands that she is going to be a big girl. She would love to have lots of playtime with her family, and lots of chew toys for when she needs to entertain herself. Nutmeg loves other dogs and would very much enjoy a canine companion in her new home. She would also be a great family dog in a home with children.
Nutmeg will go to her Forever Home wormed and up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations. She is scheduled to be spayed on March 27, 2023, but her approved adopter will be able to take her home and bring her back in for her spay so that she can start bonding with her new family as soon as possible.
