Facts about Sizzle

  • Breed: Border Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Meet Sizzle, a lovely little border collie cross who lives up to her name! She is 8 years old going on about 3, and she is full of beans. Sizzle loves to play ball - not fetch, exactly - by her own rules, run, wrestle and play. She takes a little while to warm up to new people, although she is pleasant to everyone, but she is your new best friend once she gets to know you. She is good with other dogs and cats, but she will try to be a cop dog if the playing gets too rowdy or someone steals her ball.

Sizzle has a little work to do on resource guarding and her instinct to herd everything, including the cats. She has occasionally gotten into stand-stand- offs with her foster sister; usually over attention from their foster mom. Sizzle would be fine with other pets with some work, and would do very well as an only dog. She is house trained but not crate trained, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands, and is very smart. She travels well in the car. She has had chronic ear infections throughout her life, and will need to have her ears cleaned weekly and watched closely. She is on a grain-free fish based diet right now, that we are trying to see if it helps with her ear problems. She will probably always need a special diet to keep the infections under control. She is spayed and her vaccinations are up to date.

Sizzle is a little spitfire of a dog who will make anyone a fantastic new family member. She can be very cuddly and loving, playful and energetic, and watchful and aware. Be that special person for this very special girl!

About New Hope Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a registered charitable organization of (867121808RR0001) volunteers based in Saskatoon, SK. dedicated to rescuing unwanted, stray, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs. All of our rescued dogs are placed in foster care homes when we have a foster home available until a permanent home can be found. Here the dogs receive much needed attention, love, training, and exercise on a daily basis. Being in a home environment can eliminate stress, neurotic behaviors, and illness that may happen with living in a cage or kennel. Being in a home environment allows for an on-going assessment of the dog and what the dog is like to live with. Knowing the dogs personality and quirks helps to determine the best possible permanent home for each dog.It is our main goal to place each dog in a nurturing and loving environment in a permanent home suited to each dog.

All dogs that come into New Hope Dog Rescue are spayed or neutered and receive vaccinations and microchipping prior to being adopted.

We ALWAYS need foster homes who are willing to open their home to a dog in need. This can range from a puppy who needs a good start to a home with someone patient willing to work with the dog. We accept donations of cash (pays for medical expenses or doggie school to brush up on manners before adoption), crate, toys, food, leashes/collars and blankets or bedding. The number of dogs we save is completely limited by the number of people available to help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

To meet a dog you need to fill in an adoption application for the dog you wish to meet. You may list more than one dog on your application. We will ask the foster home to contact you and set up a time for you to meet the dog.

Our Adoption Process...

At New Hope Dog Rescue our dogs are our main concern. Rescued, homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs have been through enough upheaval once, we don't want them to experience it again. To ensure this we go through what may seem a lengthy process. We want potential adopters to be fully aware of the responsibilities involved in loving and giving a home to one of our dogs. We also ensure that the dog is a match to the adopters lifestyle and expectations. If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs you can expect to be involved in the following process:

1. Fill in the application. Applications are received and evaluated on a first come basis
2. Our adoption co-ordinator will get the foster home to tell you all about the dog and set up a time for you to meet. All family members must be present. For distance adoptions, a homevisit can be arranged prior to people meeting the dog.
3. If everyone decides that dog and people are a good match, a home visit is done prior to adoption.
4. If the family decides that the dog should become a permanent member of the household, then the adoption fee is applied.
5. New Hope is always available to help with any issues that arise once the dog has been adopted.

The adoption fee covers the basic costs the rescue has incurred (eg. spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping costs). Adults and puppies are $270, Seniors are $160. We require a $150 neuter/spay deposit for unfixed puppies that is refunded when the spay or neuter is done.
