All about Gander
Sweet fella' Gander is a young, goofy boy who is a new arrival in our program and is getting himself settled into his foster home.

He's friendly, loves attention, and to romp around and play.  He is a typical young male who is in need of training and socialization.  Having lived his life in a rural environment he needs to learn about life in a more urban area.  Gander will benefit from opportunities for obedience training and socialization.

Gander previously lived with other dogs but had some resource guarding issues with one of them, and the decision was made to rehome him. This behaviour was limited to one dog, and was not noted with people.  We will be assessing his behaviour around other dogs over the coming weeks. 

He has been vaccinated, and we will be assessing some lameness in his hind end to determine if cruciate repair is required. Vet visit pending.

Updates coming soon!

Mobi




Mobi
2019-008

Mobi is in our sanctuary care program.  She will be living out her days in a foster home where she will get lots of tender love and care.

Donations towards her care are greatly appreciated.

DOB April 14, 2007
Located in the GTA


Sweet gal Mobi arrived in our care after her owner passed away.  She is a total love bug who enjoys a good snuggle.

On intake, Mobi was in pretty rough shape suffering from severe mobility issues and morbid obesity, and with a heavily matted coat which had to be completely shaved off.  With some basic vet care, we were able to identify that her thyroid was not functioning properly so we have started thyroid meds to help her feel better and drop weight, and have successfully treated her for a UTI infection that was causing incontinence.  We have also begun a comprehensive pain management regimen that has made a tremendous difference for her and enabled her to move around much better.

Due to Mobi's advanced age and serious health issues, we have determined that she is not a candidate for adoption. Instead, she will remain in our foster program in our sanctuary care program.  Our priorities will be to ensure that she is pain-free and is able to enjoy a good quality of life in a loving foster home for her remaining time.

Donations to help offset the ongoing care of Mobi are appreciated.  Details for making a donation can be found by clicking here.
