After an arduous journey that included a 4 hour flight from from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Boston, Massachusetts; a train ride from the airport to South Station, and finally an hour long train ride from Boston to Kingston, RI, the puppies found themselves in chilly, wintry Rhode Island.
The staff at the Newport Animal Hospital dedicated numerous hours to feeding, socialization, and house training. After three weeks of love and affection, Dr. Civic began to find forever homes for each of these little “coconut retrievers”!
As of March 16th, 2007, all of the puppies had found their new families. One family met Dr. Civic and his wife on the train ride from the airport, several long time clients welcomed a pup into their home, and two of the pups went to N.A.H families, one of them being Dr. Civic!!!
