The Neshoba 6
The Neshoba 6 (Nick, Norah, Natalie, Noah, Nina and Nathan) are Shepard - collie mixes that were abandoned on a rural road in Mississippi. They were transferred to our home in Virginia (through AFH) on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at about 8 weeks old. These guys are sweet, cuddly, playful and mellow (at least compared to the last litter we fostered!). Although they love playing with each other, they also love playing and cuddling with people. These guys seem to have the best of many breeds. Beyond adorable.
Please note that because they are part Shepard, they are considered a restricted breed and therefore cannot be adopted to anyone who does not own their home. Thanks!
*****All of these pups have found wonderful new homes!*****
After a long drive from Mississippi, the kids and I picked up the Neshoba-6 and drove them the last 45 minutes to our house. Here they are right after we pulled into our driveway. Curious. Sweet. Cuddly. What's not to love?!
When you pick up Natalie, she melts in your arms. She doesn't struggle at all, but rather just wags her tail and tries to lick your face. She weighs 7.5 pounds and is 100% sweetheart.
Nathan loves to be held. As I write this, he is relaxed in my lap. His ears perk as my husband prepares dinner in the other room, but he makes no effort to move. This 10-pound pup just wants to love and be loved.
Happy, snuggly, calm. Although it could just be the moment, Norah appears a little more shy than the others. When she sits in my lap, she really doesn't want to get down and explore the full house. I suspect she will feel much more comfortable after a day or two, but at the moment, she just wants to snuggle and be loved - and of course run around with her litter mates. :)
* Update: This evening I found her sleeping on my husband's chest as he lay on the couch. He said she just really wanted him to pick her up. :). All sweetness.
Nick is curious, handsome and sweet. He loves to lick your face and settles comfortably on a lap. His face is striking and his deep eyes and the white hair on his chin make this young pup seem wise beyond his years.
Wag, wag, wag. It's honestly difficult to distinguish these pups by personality. I just held Noah for 20 minutes.... Like the others, he loves to snuggle, rest his head on my arm, lick my face (esp if I make funny noises) and wags his tail constantly (esp when our adult foster dog walked into the room!). If this mix was its own breed, it would be exceedingly popular!
Can you say cute?! This little girl snuggles up and tries to hug you. She was just in my lap and when my husband walked in, her tail wagged as hard as a puppy can wag. When I made noises, she turned to me and tried to lick my face and ear. Happy, affectionate and lovable.
