All about Sadie
This lovely young gal is a new arrival in our program and is getting settled into her foster home.  She is friendly and social, gets along well with other dogs and is cute as can be!

Sadie came to us when her owners found that her exercise and training needs were more than they could handle.  Sadie knows some basic commands, but needs to work on her leash manners, keeping all four feet on the floor when greeting people, and general manners.  With a bit of work, and loads of opportunities to play and exercise, Sadie will blossom into a wonderful gal!

Sadie shares a foster home with other dogs and is playful and gets along well with everyone.  She would be happy to join a home with another friendly and gentle canine playmate to romp and play with. 

Sadie is currently being treated for an infection in her foot/leg due to a cut on her foot.  If all heals up nicely we are planning to spay her on July 6th.  She will be ready to join her adoptive family once she has healed from surgery, approximately 2 weeks post-op.

An adoption donation of $500 will apply.

Miya

 Miya

Quick Adoption Overview
On medical hold
DOB September 22, 2008 - 8 years old
Located in Thornhill, ON
Fenced yard required

All about Miya
This adorable love bug is sweet as can be, loves people and is friendly and social.  She has nice house manners and gets along nicely with well mannered dogs (we are told she prefers the company of males, and we have not tested her with any females.)

Miya, along with her brother Chevy, arrived in our care after the death of their owner.  We are currently working with our vet team to help get Miya healthy and ready for adoption.

She is spayed and current on vaccines.  Maya has an old knee injury that has been left untreated and can no longer be repaired, so pain meds and joint supplements, along with some weight loss and muscle building, will go a long way for Miya.

Bloodwork results show some concerns; an ultrasound has been done and no cause for the abnormalities has been found.  We are still investigating the cause.

Quick Adoption Overview

All about Chevy
Chevy is a big teddy bear who loves attention,  has loads of love to give, and is friendly as can be. This handsome fella gets along with everyone he meets and is a mellow, quiet sweetheart who is looking for someone to give him loads of TLC.

Chevy, along with his sister Miya, came to us when their owner passed away.   This sweet guy is in pretty rough shape, and we are working on a plan to help get him feeling loads better very soon.  At the moment Chevy is morbidly obese, which is making his orthopedic issues far worse than they would otherwise be.  Currently tipping the scales at 180 lbs, he is in need of some serious weight loss.  His extra weight, in addition to a previously untreated knee injury, arthritis and lack of muscle are making it difficult for Chevy to get around.  With some pain meds and weight loss we hope to get him feeling better very soon.

Bloodwork results are pending, and once we have those results we will work on our action plan to start getting Chevy healthy.

Donations towards his care are greatly appreciated.

Lucy

Lucy
2017-010

Quick Adoption Overview
Available for Adoption
DOB September 24, 2008 - 8 years old
Gets along with well mannered dogs
Located in Toronto
Fenced yard required

Before applying to adopt a dog or emailing us with questions, please read the dog's entire bio and review our FAQ page.  Emails asking questions that are answered on that page will not be responded to.

Lucy is a sweet and sensitive gal who has loads of love to give.  She is gentle and well behaved, knows her basic commands, has great house manners and is a quiet, easy going gal.  She is a social butterfly who loves to stop and say help to everyone she meets, a real sweetheart!

She came to us when her loving owner had changes in his life that made it impossible for Lucy to stay with him.  She is a loving Newf who has known only kindness in her life and she is looking for a nice, quiet family to call her own.
Lucy is spayed and current on vaccines.  She gets along well despite having an old knee injury that was not repaired.  Maintaining a healthy body weight and taking joint supplements really helps her along nicely.


She is not a fan of slippery flooring surfaces and can be a bit nervous walking in new places, but overall she has good mobility and thoroughly enjoys going for a stroll around the neighbourhood! 

This lovable girl would be a great companion for a family looking for a lower energy companion to spend their days with.

Lucy is being fostered in Toronto; her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person.
