The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Sometimes, the need extends beyond that area. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
According to rescue staff, this sweet girl was dumped along with her “fellow housemates” in the shelter a few months ago. No one came to take her, so the rescue stepped in and did so on February 9, 2013. Her hair was in terrible condition and needed to be shaved right down. She has now being spayed and seen a veterinarian as well.
Rescue staff says she is a “very capable girl despite being blind. She even climbs up the stairs on her own.” Despite all that this dear girl has been through, she gets along well with other dogs. However, her original caregiver said she “slept under my arm the whole night,” suggesting that she might still be somewhat fearful of what might happen to her.
But when she met her foster parents, she immediately took to their other dog, which was a puppy and “treated her as a daughter.” Unfortunately, there were other dogs in the home that she did not fair well with and was returned to her original caregiver.
“I took her back last night - - February 11th and she quickly showed her normal self again, fine with all the other dogs at my house.”
She suggested that this dog would “do best in a calm home.” She “loves to be held,” she said adding that her new home should have a securely fenced yard and only older children.
The rescue requires that anyone wishing to adopt their animals fill out an adoption application. They also ensure that the dogs are compatible with the new household and any other animals in the home. Updates on the dog’s progress will also be needed.
