Bear's Story...
Bear is fostered in Alberta with his "Brother", Loki, the Collie.

You will find an online application there that needs to be filled out. All dogs adopted from Collie Rescue Network have an adoption fee of $350.

Bear is Collie Rescue Network's current "not-a-Collie" rescue dog! He came to rescue with his "brother", Loki the Rough Collie, and will only be adopted to a home where they can stay together.

From Loki & Bear's foster mom:

I have been fostering Loki and Bear for 3 weeks now.
When Loki first arrived, he could hardly walk because of his weight. Standing was extremely hard, and sitting was pretty much impossible—he would slowly and painfully lower himself into a laying position. He can now move around, get up and down stairs, lift his leg to pee, and scratch his ears with his hind feet!! He has gone from a walk of 4 houses down the block, to an hour (slowly, mind you).Way to go, Loki!

Both Loki and Bear are wonderful boys. They love to go for walks, and are excellent both off-leash and on. They both respond well to their names and to a whistle, as well as to “come”. Both know “stay”. Loki can also “sit”, but it was so difficult for him to do, that I didn’t do it for the first two weeks! He sits for a treat, and takes nice. Bear will take tiny treats right from your hand, very gently, and will do a little dance for you on his hind legs first!! Loki is a tad more exuberant, due to his restricted diet!!

Both boys are slightly picky, but like their lamb, rice and vegetable kibble. Loki loves his with a bit of pumpkin mixed in, and this helps with his weight and digestion greatly. Loki and Bear love cantaloupe, raspberries and watermelon, but won’t eat carrots or green beans! They both also LOVE people food, as they were fed this in their previous home, and they will give you the big cute eyes, but they are not allowed any!

I often go into my unfenced back yard to pick raspberries, and both boys never leave my side. Bear will sneak under the gate in my front yard, so you do need to watch!! (He knows this is the way to the off-leash park!!)

They are both extremely happy, sweet dogs. They love to cuddle, and Loki will horn in to get pets and neck rubs. He loves to have his whole body rubbed and petted, but cannot yet roll over for a tummy rub—he will do this very soon, I am sure. Both dogs love to hang out wherever you are, and will follow you around the house (when you are using the bathroom, showering, getting dressed…..).
They are extremely affectionate! Loki loves to sleep on the floor at the foot of your bed, and would love to jump up for snuggles, but he can’t do it yet!! Bear will happily sleep on the bed with you, if you lift him up. If you are on the couch relaxing with a book, you can be sure he will be right up there with you, looking for ear rubs. He will rub and wiggle his little head all around you until you pet him!!

They have been an absolute joy to have around, and get along with almost everyone—Bear is a bit skittish around young children, but he loves older kids and adults—sometimes he tries to follow other people home from the dog park!! Loki is fine around all kids, babies, toddlers, teenagers, but I think he would do well in a rather low-energy home. Both boys are great with cats and other dogs. Bear was a bit skittish around big dogs at first (when you are a 7 lb Pom, EVERY dog is a big dog!!) but is turning into a very friendly fellow. Loki likes everyone, human and otherwise!! They both are interested in my cats, but only to look and smell—they only bark at them when my own dog is trying to play with the cats. Though they both get along well with other dogs, they would do best in a home where it is just them, or where the other dog is medium or low-energy. They get along really well with my collie, who is very sweet and not dominant. Living with other dogs who are high-energy or more dominant would not work for these laid-back boys!

Bear and Loki are not huge barkers—Bear barks a bit when he is excited, when the other dogs are playing, and when you first come into the house. It is not over the top, as some small dogs can be very vocal. Loki is quite quiet for a collie and really only barks when my collie is playing with him.

These boys are buddies, and are always together. They would do wonderfully in a low-energy home. If short, leisurely walks several times a day are your favourite thing to do, and you love hanging around with your doggies, chilling in your house or your yard, these are the boys for you!! They are lovely in the house, in the yard, by your side, and in the car!!

They will make a wonderful addition to your quiet home, and it would be best if you are not away from home for long periods of time, as they love to spend time with you, and want to be by your side.

They are truly lovely, well-behaved dogs, with lots of affection to give.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Toronto Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian for sale in Toronto, or seeking a Pomeranian dog from a breeder in Toronto.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toronto breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pomeranian breeders who help with Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto paves the way for another one to be saved.
