Meet Goldie! Goldie’s foster parents describe her as a sweetie pie lovebug who wants pets and cuddles all the time. She is very calm and quiet (unless the doorbell rings), as well as smart and eager to please!

Goldie dreams of finding a family that’s home more often than not, and one that has another friendly and playful dog. She wouldn't mind a cat!

She looooves her people and will jump up to give kisses, but is quickly learning that she will only get pats and attention when she is calm and sitting. Goldie can be a bit shy with new people, and may bark when stranger enter the house, but she warms up very quickly. She is not tested with children, but doesn’t seem to mind them when she passes them on the street. Because she can be shy at first though, Goldie would prefer a home with children 10+.

Goldie is medium energy, gets two 40 - 90 min walks per day and would make a fantastic jogging partner. She loves to exploring on her walks and will follow her nose just about anywhere it takes her, especially if it involves a bird or a squirrel! She is strong and pulls on the leash though, and will need a family committed to working on her leash manners. Goldie is nervous of streetcars, trucks and other loud street noises, but with more and more exposure over the last week, she’s becoming less afraid.

Goldie’s potty training is a work in progress and she is learning to go outside on walks and in the yard, but does sometimes have accidents. Her foster parents say she is a very smart girl and will learn quickly with structure and a routine. She loves her crate and willingly goes in it to relax. She is fed and given treats in her crate to reinforce that it is a safe and comfortable place for her.

Goldie is quickly learning sit, come, leave it, no, paw and off. Her family says that pats on the head and liver treats are effective rewards! She loves to play with her squeaky toys and as she has gotten more comfortable in the home, she has explored new “toys” like the remote control or computer mouse. Her foster parents say she seems to understand “no” and that by redirecting her to another toy, she looses interest in the inappropriate chewing objects.

Goldie’s foster mum and dad work opposite shifts, so Goldie always has someone home with her. She loves to be near her foster parents and her k9 companion at all times and sleeps on the floor of the bedroom. Because of this, we are unsure how Goldie would do if left home alone during the work day, and so her family should be willing to work her on desensitization training to help her understand its okay to be alone.

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 fetchandreleash.ca to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at fetchandreleash.ca. 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.

- A puppy 12 months of age and younger is $600.
