He likes to be outside racing around and would like excel at something like agility, if he can get over his fear of new things and with the help of his trusted person. He likes to come across as a “tough” guy, but he’s quite sensitive and once you’ve earned his trust, you will see a much more sweet and sensitive side. He is great with children and other dogs, and isn’t big on being snuggled or coddled, however, once trust is earned, he will sometimes come and ask for a short snuggle. This pup is a complete gem that is a bit rough around the edges, but has the makings to be an amazing dog and companion.

Adoption status: Available

Name: Eclipse
Gender: Female
Age: Sept 1 2016
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 8 lbs Medium height
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
History: Eclipse loves to cuddle. She is a bit shy and takes a little to check new people, places and sounds out. She is quick to become affectionate especially if you offer her a soft plush blanket and a good movie. She will be cuddling in no time! Since Eclipse has gotten her Dental work, we have noticed some chances in behavior, and in a good way! She is more playful, adventurous and now isnt having accidents as long as her food is soft for her jaw. She would make a great addition to a family that has children as she loves to cuddle the kids at night, however a home expecting a baby or planning on children might not be the best because she LOVES to cuddle so much. She loves to play hunt with her mice toys and did I mention soft plush blankets are her favorite to cuddle with.

Eclipse suffers from a condition called “Tooth Resorbtion” a common condition in cats where the teeth start being reabsorbed into the gums. She has already had one dental and some problem teeth pulled along with many xrays of her mouth. However this condition will continue to cause problems through her life and she will require more dental surgeries during her lifetime. It has also been discovered that Eclipse has a condition called Mycoplasma Felis. Mycoplasma infection is caused by a type of bacteria that acts as a parasite in the blood, causing anemia and other signs of infection. The bacteria are present in most environments. Most healthy animals will experience little to no symptoms, but the very young or old or those with immune disorders may have severe anemia and other signs of infection. Mycoplasma commonly causes respiratory symptoms like bronchitis and pneumonia, but can cause infection in other parts of the body as well. This sadly also is a life long condition. We fear our lovely Eclipse will never find a home with all her medical conditions but hopefully she finds her perfect person.

Adoption status: Available

Name: Beauty

Gender: Female

Age: Born Aug 24 2016

Approx.size/weight when full grown: 62 lbs Large height

Breed: Shephard Mix

History: She came into care early 2018 from Manitoba with a litter of pups. Shortly we found out that she had Heartworm. The treatment was hard but Beauty did great and in Dec 2018 finished her treatment successfully. Beauty is a energetic dog who loves to go out on adventures. It doesnt matter where you want to take her, if you want to leave the house she is up for it. She does also enjoy cuddling up to you on the couch or in bed for naps. Beauty gets along with everyone although can get a bit excited meeting new people and tries to give everyone kisses on the face but as she is introduced to more people she is learning to stay calm. One of Beautys favourite things is to receive belly rubs! She would love to lay there all day as long as you rub her belly. Beauty is good with cats as long as they do not try and run away from her constantly as she thinks they are playing with her and will chase them. She is dog selective so is ideally looking for a home with no other dogs, however she has been going to class to work on this and has already made major progress impressing her teachers. She would do best with someone who is willing to continue taking her to classes to help her continue to learn how to be around other dogs.

Due to Beauty’s battle with heartworm she does have a heart murmur. Which isn’t surprising, infestations of heartworm can cause permanent damage to the heart even once fully cleared. As of now it is not at a point that our vets feel we can medicate as she’s not currently showing signs of heart failure. However it is something that her new home will need to understand and watch for.

He is slowly learning about bathroom training, asking to go outside by scratching at the back door but still using puppy pee pads.    He does not fuss about going into his crate, does not cry at night and enjoys his toys to play with.  He LOVES to be outside.  He likes to bark at the TV and uses his loud voice outside to inform the neighbors he's around. He is good with other puppies, adult dogs and cats. D'Artagnan loves ice cubes, carrots, pumpkin and blueberries. This puppy would be best suited in a house with a fenced yard. A condo would not be good. He has just started to learn the command "sit".  This black and white puppy is looking for a forever home.

He is not Condo friendly due to his love to hear his voice

I will snuggle between your legs to be scratched.  I do not lick but love the warmth of humans. I play with two other adult dogs, 3 cats and my playful puppy brother. I love my treats and food.
