** UPDATE **
Jess is very fearful of strangers and we are working on her barking and growling response to people entering our home. She is slowly wanting to be closer to me although she is still more comfortable on the floor with her head in my lap for gentle face rubs and stroking than being picked up or being on my lap. She is starting to lay beside me on the couch on occasion but seems to prefer to share the other couch with the other dogs. I prefer not to think about the cause for her reactions sometimes. When picked up she appears to play dead, either freezing stiff or going limp entirely. Both can make transitioning to her crate difficult. Jessie is intensely stressed when crated. She stays in her vericrate as she destroys anything in reach, and even things you think are not within her reach. She makes a deep gutteral noise when crated which does not even sound like a dog. I have placed very durable chew toys in her crate to try to redirect her chewing and scratching but she seems oblivious to them there. Throughout the rest of the house I have chew toys for her to work on as she tends to steal items from throughout the house to chew. Pens and chap sticks from the coffee table tend to be favourites as well as snacks from the litter box. Therefore, I try to not leave her unsupervised for even short periods of time and keep the house as dog proof as possible. But even the coffee table and bedroom stool have chewed corners.
She gets along well with the other dogs and likes to play with them. For the most part she ignores the cats, but can be a follower if Sweetie wants to chase them. She is becoming more playful as she settles(which is taking a good while) and seems to have a strong hunting drive. She MUST have a fully fenced yard as she will run at squirrels full tilt even when on a leash, to the point that she is flipping herself in her efforts to get were she wants to be. Other times she wanders serenely around the yard and you would never know she was capable of such speed and determination. She eats well and is not food aggressive.
Her routine and feeding is identical to Sweetie's as she gets up when Sweetie gets up. A simple brush seems to be all the grooming required for her lovely coat. I feel strongly that she will need a home with lots of time and patience and experience with training fearful dogs and would not recommend her with children at all due to her terror with people and their inability to interpret her body language.

Jessie has arrived. She is an exceptionally soft dog in temperament and actions. She is very quiet. she traveled well in the crate- but drooled d/t stress. She will need a quiet home that is not overbearing/ overwhelming for her.
She has no recall and will be learning her name .
She has no clue on what a leash is or means... and will need time- patience to show her in a low key environment... and then building on that.. as her comfort level increases.

Update "
Jessie and sweetie are fascinated by the cats from a distance so far

More to come as we learn / confirm this dogs needs as she settles in foster care..

We welcome your application for consideration .

*** HOW IT WORKS - ADOPTION INFORMATION ****
Please read ** ALL** the information provided below on the process to
save time and facilitate the process in a smooth manner.

The adoption fee does NOT cover the cost of vetting or supplies for these animals - If you cannot afford the adoption fee
(that is a fraction of actual REDUCED VETTING expenses incurred) then you should reconsider adopting.
These animals deserve forever homes, good food, regular vet care, and emergency care as needed.
Pets should never be euthanized by their owners simply based on financial consideration when something goes wrong.

About Adopt-a-Pet/ Petrescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Discarded Pets Since1998
as well as puppy mill discards, dogs from high kill shelters, and owner surrenders as space allows.
Please note we are located in Grey-Bruce County,
in the area of Lucknow, Ontario
which is south east of Kincardine ,Ontario but have our dogs placed in foster homes
from London area & north to Kitchener area- Cambridge- Woodstock and Guelph areas .

We are a group of committed volunteers led by the tireless efforts of Kathi. Together we transport, foster, contribute, volunteer, donate, support, encourage and generally all around enjoy the fruits of Kathi's labours.

Adopt-a-Pet Pet Rescue is a non profit, private rescue without an office, a shelter building, or paid staff. We are not subsidized or funded by anyone. People often mistake us as being affiliated with the SPCA and other groups. However, we raise all funds ourselves to pay for the care of the animals.

We pick up unclaimed, homeless and discarded animals from pounds and shelters. Some pounds allow the animal extra time to find a home, but if they are unsuccessful, then they call us to take the animal so it is not euthanized. When we have available space we take in owner surrenders and pick up puppy mill dogs who have either outworn their usefulness or who have passed their puppy-cuteness-easy-to-sell date. We We cover hundreds of kilometers from Kincardine to London to Cambridge to Southampton, Ontario Canada. We also try to save the lives of animals who aren't within our area whenever we can - we don't close doors based on geography.

Pre-adoption, we provide above average veterinary care. We spay or neuter, micro-chip, vaccinate, deworm and treat for parasites. If the animal is too young to be fixed at time of adoption we offer a spay or neuter rebate. We provide all necessary emergency care and initial grooming. We buy their food, dog collars and any other necessities.

Each of us have jobs, families and the typical resonsibilities of busy lives. We give of our time, energy and enthusiasm to rescue animals for the same reason Kathi does - anything less is unacceptable to us. When you call or email Adopt-a-Pet Pet Rescue, please be patient with us - we are juggling alot ... and we're glad to do it for the animals.

We are always in need of and welcome help with accepting new fosters- assistance with/ at pet events- great for students needing volunteer hours, putting out fliers, assistance with pet supervision at pet events, Assistance with rescue booth set-up- take down etc...
