Our adoption fee is being raised from $500 to $600
effective August 1, 2022.

This is due to a number of things.

Rising costs in Veterinary fees
The inability to host large fundraisers
since Covid struck over two years ago
and the fact that we cannot break even
at an adoption fee of $500 anymore.

We are certainly not in the business
of making money no one in rescue
ever went into it hoping to make money.
You do however have to at least break even
to continue to rescue these days.

We hope everyone understands.

Sami

Sami is a curious, smart, and energetic 8-month-old female Chihuahua, born February 22, 2022. She weighs 13 pounds. Sami is spayed and has had all her shots. She is doing well with her house training and has several ways of notifying her foster Mom that she needs to go outside. She will use a pee pad if the signal is not noticed. She is happy to stay in her crate when the family is away however she will bark and yelp for a short period. For this reason, she will be placed in a detached or semi-detached house. Sami sleeps quietly in a crate in the bedroom at night.

Sami likes to run like the wind and would do best in a home with another dog to run around and play chase. She is a wiggle puss, and her foster Mom thinks that she has springs in her legs as she can almost jump into your arms. Sami lives with two older dogs and is respectful of them.

Sami is nervous around strangers but with a little time and treats, she will bond with her new person. Once she gets used to you, she will cuddle and be a great lap dog. She loves to go for walks and is learning her leash manners.

Sami would do best in a home where her owner would be home more often so that she can go out regularly. She seems interested in children but has not had any exposure in her foster home. Any children must be 12 years of age or older. She does tend to bark at strange noises or the doorbell, so apartment living may not be suitable.

Available in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.

Baby is a smart, energetic, and curious 8-month-old female Chihuahua, born February 22, 2022, weighing a svelte 5 pounds. She is  house trained on pee pads (great for winter months) and outside, crate trained, spayed and UTD with vaccinations.
As she is still learning her manners, Baby can be a little impatient and bouncy for an earned treat or a new toy,  but she is very food motivated,  learning quickly, and loves to please.
Baby lives with 4 other dogs and gets along well with all of them. She  particularly loves a good chase session around the yard with her bigger foster sister.
Around strangers Baby is initially nervous and wary, but given a bit of time, she will bond quickly to a new person. Once she is comfortable, she is a top-notch cuddle bug!
Due to her size and bouncy behavior, Baby would do best in a home where any children are 12 years of age or older. She does tend to bark at strange noises or the doorbell, so apartment living may not be suitable.

Piper is a 17 month old, weighs about 55 lbs, is spayed, shots
are up to date, she is Heartworm checked and is microchipped.
We brought her in last year from Antigua


From her Foster Mom

This little girl is the sweetest, most loving pup I
have ever met. Loves to give kisses and rolls over
on her belly when you are coming her way, just in
case there is a belly rub to be had.

A bit skittish over loud noises but getting much
better. Not a lot of experience walking on leash
but she is good at it if it is not too loud – buses make
a lot of noise and are scary.

Piper had a big hip surgery and healed well – loves to
run and play with my other 2 dogs. She would do
best with someone who takes shorter walks
or has a fenced yard she can hang out in.

She love to be outside and is great with other dogs and cats
She is extremely smart and a little bit stubborn
She is quite independent but will come for cuddles
and kisses often. She sometimes will sleep on the
floor but each morning I wake up to her little
face on my pillow waiting for the day to begin.
If I did not already have 2 dogs, she would
have been a foster fail.

To inquire about adopting Piper please email smckeil@primus.ca

Ari (female) – Available for adoption, Ottawa/Gatineau area
Ari is a 1 ½  to 2-year-old mix (Spitz maybe) rescued from a dog meat farm in Korea. She is spayed, UTD on shots,  house-trained, crate trained and weighs about 17 pounds. She is perfectly behaved in the house and doesn’t need to be crated but does appreciate having her own safe spot.
Ari will need an experienced dog family with a secure, good sized fenced yard. In her foster home she has become used to someone home most of the time and lots of space to run safely. Any children should be at least 12 and dog savvy. Ari likes other dogs and would do best in a home with another dog who enjoys playing.  Cats are an unknown.
Despite her horrible early life, Ari has become a sweet girl who loves to do zoomies and loves to play. While not a lap sitter, (yet) she will sit beside me on the sofa and appreciates a loving touch. She understands “Outside”, “Sit” hand and verbal command, “Leash on”, “Leash off”.  She is good in the car.
With new people and new situations, Ari is careful and wary at first,  but once comfortable, she is a joyful, playful, happy girl who loves her squeaky toys and running around the yard.
On residential streets, Ari walks well on leash and does not pull but is still a little nervous in traffic.
Ari will need time and understanding in adjusting to a new home, but her potential is amazing.

Bella


_______________________________________

Bark now urgently needs either a Foster home or a Foster with a view to adopting.
Bella was brought in from Pond Circle Nunavut with 6 two week old puppies several months ago.
We thought she was 5 or 6 years old but turns out she is only two.
The present Foster is finding her too lively and we need to move her asap.
She is a Golden Retriever/Husky mix, great with other dogs and older children. She is not good with cats judging by the shape she was in when we got her she probably had to hunt to survive.
From the present Foster
She is a sweet quiet girl and full of playful energy. She learns quickly and likes to do the right thing when she has been taught what that is. She has a over bite which means her lower jaw is a little longer than her upper jaw which I think makes her look cute. It does make it a little harder for her to chew hard food or be able to pick up flat food or other flat things. Small bites dog food with some wet food spread over it works very well for her. She has been eating 2 cups of dry dog food with another cup in a Kong toy that she rolls around to release the food. It is best not to feed her before a long trip, no problem on short drives, She needs a dog car seat belt (purchased at any pet store) as she will jump out of a open car window, even when it looks like she couldn't get through the window, as I found out the 1st day I brought her home.
She loves to go for long walks and runs. She also loves to play with squeaky tennis balls, one of her favourite toys (which can be purchased at any pet store as its best when she can squeak it), and have it thrown any number of times through out the day, she will tell you when she's finished playing, along with playing with her squeaky toys. She loves to have you talk to her, and to be pet, especially around her ears and tummy.
She always let me know when she wanted to go out and never messed in the house .I was always amazed at how few times in a day that she needed to go.
She loved to be outside during the day most of the time and at times in the evening. She'll let you know what she wants. She loves to sleep in a cave structure. I cleared a closet out in my room and put in a quilt for her bed. She also had a nice soft cushion by the closet. She also liked being in the closet and use the cushion for a pillow.
The words Bella knows well are: No, Out, Stay, Wait, Come, Down, Treat, Supper, Tennis Ball, Outside, Fresh Water, Sit, Go, Walk, Woods, Car, Off, Where is...., Go get it, Bring it here,.
Words she's working on : Lie down, On your cushion, Bring it here, Go get it, Drop it.
In summary Bella is a loving sweet wonderful girl. She wants to please once she understands what you want of her. She would do well in a family , with a number of people to play with her, kids 8 and up would be best just because of her size, tall but very slim, or with a couple. She would also love to have another dog if possible to play with. She is very friendly with people and other dogs. She is learning to sit when another dog is going by as she so wants to go over and say hi to the other dog. She loves to chase cats and squirrels and can be a bit over the top when she sees one. Always be aware if there are any cats or squirrels when on your walks so you can get ahead of her need to chase them. Tell her No and have her sit till she is calm. She heels well and doesn't pull on the extension leash. I'm not sure how she would be to greet a small dog. She definitely pulls to go and see them. She would not intentionally hurt them I believe, however her excited energy could maybe scare them.
If you give her love, walks, pets, and play time, she'll give back to you, love, laughter, friendship, and loyalty.

Ace

Looking for a new home for a 7 year old neutered Rottie.
His owner passed away on Aug 7th so he urgently needs a home.

Ace is a friendly dog and very good with people.
 He has not been socialised with other dogs, so a
home without dogs may be the best.

Please call Rob Rennie at 613-253-5504.

Teddy is 7 months old. He is a blue and white 
American bully with beautiful dark blue eyes.
He is a huge sweetheart! He is house trained and
good on leash. Teddy has shown very aggressive
behaviour towards other dogs. He is usually
fine with other dogs but we had 2 incidents
of him going after another dog. Im hoping
to find a home with someone who is willing
to put in some work with training especially
with his aggression. Other than the 2 times
he was aggressive, hes great! Hes used to being
in a home with cats and a young boy. He is the
most affectionate dog i have ever met, it saddens
me to have to part. Looking for a forever home!
Please only serious inquiries, where you are able
to spend the time needed for training. Please phone
Ashley at 613-513-6095. Adoption fee of $300
