I was adopted

Kira is living with her adoptive family in a foster-to-adopt placement pending her spay surgery in February.  Her adoption will be finalized once her surgery is completed
She's not a Newf, but this sweet Saint Bernard needed our help, so here she is......Gorgeous gal Kira arrived in our care on November 6th after being pulled from a high-kill shelter.  She is approximately 4 years old, and is as sweet as she is pretty.

Very nervous in the shelter environment, she immediately cheered up and relaxed at her foster home.  She is a love-bug who enjoys lots of attention and belly rubs!

She knows a few commands, en fran├žais, and we'll be working to teach them in english.  She has good house manners and is an absolute doll.  Her leash manners need a bit of work, but she is quick to learn and eager to please, so this should not be a problem.

She gets along well with other dogs, appears to be ok with cats when tested but is not living with a cat in foster care.

Kira came into heat shorty after arriving so has not yet been spayed.   She will be ready to be spayed by late January -- we wait several weeks after their heat ends before spaying, this is safest for the dog.

She is being fostered in the Mississauga, ON area. Once she is spayed we will consider homes within a 1 day drive of her foster location.  However, we will consider a foster-to-adopt placement for Kira now.  In this type of placement Kira could join her adoptive family prior to the spay, and then once it is safe to spay her we will proceed with surgery at one of our rescue-friendly vet clinics, at our expense. Once her spay is completed her adoption would then be finalized.  To be considered for a foster-to-adopt placement, the adoptive family would have to live near one of our rescue friendly clinics which are located in Apsley, Mississaugua, Guelph, Brantford and Unionville.
