Moxie's Miracle Story

Moxie's first name was Miracle. She is our very special Oops! puppy. She was born just two weeks after we welcomed our very first litter. We were unaware that her dam, Wishes, had been accidentally bred until a few days before Miracle was born. Talk about a whirlwind! Because she surprised us, we had to DNA test all our boys to find out who the father was. It was determined that Sunny was the boy that bred her dam through the fence. Although accidental and unintentional, both Wishes and Sunny were fully health tested and of breeding age. Miracle's dam unfortunately had a very difficult labor. Although Moxie was born alive, three other puppies didn't make it despite our best efforts to rush her dam to the emergency vet. Unfortunately due to staff shortages because of Covid, there was not an available surgeon to do a cesarean in a timely manner to save the puppies. We were sent home with our one surviving puppy, that we naturally began calling, Miracle. The whole family helped to raise Moxie, as her dam was not up to the task. She was bottle fed and tube fed to save her life. My sister also was a great help in raising our singleton. Moxie now lives in a loving local guardian home. 

Moxie will finish health testing in May 2023. If she passes health testing, we have some exciting plans for her in the future!

While living with my sister, Miracle earned her CGC, CGCA and CGCU!

Moxie earned her first competition win at the Friday April 22nd 2022 Black Swamp Gun Dog Club show. She also earned her SPOT-ON and URO1 titles that weekend! So proud of our little miracle puppy! Groomed and handled by her co-owner, Tessa Tewksbury. Pictured with her sire, Sunny. We are so proud!
