Nov 27/15: I was adopted

This sensitive girl is looking for a loving family to call her own.  She gets along well with other dogs and is a gentle, well mannered girl.

A little timid, Phoebe is in need of opportunities for socialization to help boost her confidence and cope well in new surroundings.  She is learning about walking on new surfaces (hard floors vs carpets) and all of the other things that are new to her.
This 5 year old girl appears to be in good health, has been brought up to date on vaccines and will be spayed soon.  Phoebe is in heat at the moment so we are not yet able to spay her.  She will be on hold in foster care until she has been spayed.  Because we hold off spaying for a few weeks after the heat cycle ends Phoebe will not be ready to be adopted until October (although we will consider an adopter local to one of our supportive vets to foster-to-adopt while we wait for her blood vessels to reduce enough after her spay to minimize the risks of surgery.)
She arrived in our care on Aug 22 along with her litter-mate Rachel.  The girls were surrendered through no fault of their own.

More details will be posted about Phoebe as she settles into her foster home and we get to know her better.  Photos coming soon.

Phoebe is currently being fostered in Bomanville, ON.  An adoption donation of $500 will apply.
