Meet Dolly! A timid girl, Dolly dreams of finding a female-only, quiet home with a mum that is willing to put the effort into earning her trust and confidence. With consistency & patience, Dolly is a loving and affectionate girl. She loves to be by her foster mum’s side and will gaze adoringly at her until she receives a pet. When her foster mum comes home from work, Dolly will do a goofy prance towards her with ears propped outward, as if to say “Hi! I missed you!” Dolly is very fearful of men and would do best in an environment where she has limited interaction with them.

She is timid around children initially and will run and hide when approached. However, with time and patience, she gains confidence and trust, and is great with kids. The more gentle the child, the faster she becomes comfortable. For this reason, Dolly would prefer an adult only home, or a home with a child that is calm and understanding of her need for space in the beginning.

Dolly is great around calm, gentle and passive dogs, and gets on wonderfully with her fur sister Sasha. She would not do well with a high energy dog as excitable dogs and people make her nervous. She has not been cat tested, but has never shown any interest in chasing other small animals like squirrels.

She looooves walks and does great on the leash, walking calmly at your side. If something startles her she will get really low, tuck her tail between her legs and pull towards home. In these situations, her foster mum stops, stands calmly by her side, pets her back for a moment to calm her and then they can continue walking without an issue. She is low to medium energy.

Dolly is crate trained, and mostly house broken. When her foster parents are at work, she will most likely have an accident in the house if not crated. When her family is home, she does not have accidents in the house provided she is taken out on a consistent schedule to do her business. Because Dolly should be crated while her family is away, she is looking for a mum that has a flexible work schedule and is not away from home for long periods of time.

She is a quiet girl and only barks with excitement when her foster mum comes home. She has wonderful manners (does not chew, doesn’t bark at people, doesn’t climb all over furniture, is calm in the house, etc.), but has yet to learn her basic commands such as sit, lie down, stay etc. Her foster family has been focused on building her confidence by making her feel safe and learning to trust.

Dolly has come a long way since her arrival into our rescue and this beautiful girl has loads of potential yet to be unlocked! She would make wonderful forever friend, and just needs a second chance.

About Fetch & Releash

About Our Rescue Group...

We at Fetch & Releash believe every dog deserves a second chance regardless of age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues. Through our network of volunteers, foster homes, trainers, and veterinarians, we work hard to find our dogs the loving forever home they deserve.

Fetch & Releash was established in 2016 with a mission of saving homeless dogs. We are 100% volunteer run.

Our dogs come from a variety of different situations and locations such as pounds/shelters, strays, and surrendered pets - both locally and abroad. We provide our dogs with the best care and a chance to find their forever homes by placing them with loving and caring volunteer foster parents. In order to prevent further over-population, all pets are spayed or neutered, age and health permitting.

As a completely volunteer-based organization, we are only able to find our pets their forever homes with the help of our volunteers and donors. Visit to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at Although we do our best to reply to all inquiries within 48 hours, please remember we are a 100% volunteer based organization, and many of us have full time jobs outside of rescue. We appreciate your patience.

Once your application has been received, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will contact you to set up a time to speak over the phone. The phone call usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Our priority is to ensure the fit is right for both you and the dog, so ask as many questions as you would like! After the phone interview, we will reach out to your personal and veterinarian references (if applicable), and your landlord (if applicable).

If we determine that you are a potential fit for the dog you applied for, you will then be granted a private meet and greet with the dog. If after the meet and greet, you would like to proceed with adoption, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will then contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption committee will then review your completed application and make a final decision.
