I am housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
My name is Genny and I'm a "northern special" - no one really knows my story but that doesn't matter because I have a great beginning to my new story! I had a visit to the vet and I was really good, especially since I was only born this July! I greet everyone with an instant sit..it's easier to get pets that way. I am sensitive so it doesn't take much to teach me new things. I didn't like the leash at first but I am ok with it now. I haven't been around any kids but I know I will be ok with them. I do like to nibble fingers and chase feet, but all you have to do is distract me with a toy and throw it. I'll chase anything you throw!! I don't like rough tug-o-war it scares me. I am kennel trained and house trained. I don't like to do my business when I'm on a walk with a leash though. I always do it at home. I also don't like it when you try and get me in a car or take me down the stairs with a leash on. I can do the stairs all by myself and mom lifts me in the car. Once I'm in the car I just like to lay back and enjoy the ride and I will jump out of the car with the leash on. I live with 2 cats and they have never seen a dog before. They did pretty good and I just want to play with them. I don't chase them but I do bark 'let's play!'. My foster mom says I have unique coloring like a Caramilk Bar and she loves my white prancy paws. Well she loves everything about me and how can she not? I am a GREAT puppy and I know I will play well with other dogs too. When my foster mom is chill I am chill but I do let her know when I am ready for the big walk on the leash. I know I would be very happy camping..hiking and just laying around the fire. Whatever you want to do..I am game! Do you have a place for me??

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.
