Meet Peppa Pig! Peppa (for short) is a sweet but nervous girl that dreams of finding a quiet home with fenced yard in a quiet neighborhood. Peppa is not a big city girl! Peppa has been with us for about 2 weeks now and is lower energy. Once she's feeling more comfortable and confident though, it's possible that her energy level will increase a bit. Peppa is looking for a family that is committed to socializing her and helping her to gain confidence.

Initially, she is timid and reserved when meeting new people (especially men) and may retreat her to crate for safety. Given the time and space she needs though, she does warm up. When new people enter the house, if they ignore Peppa, she will eventually approach them for a sniff. She has never shown any sign of aggression and her foster mum says she is very loving and snugly once she feels comfortable with you.

Peppa has not been tested around young children, cats or other dogs. Because she is so timid though, we would recommend a family with older children (10+) as the energy of very young children may be too much for her. Peppy can also get a bit nippy when she plays or is excited. This behavior is playful and not aggressive, but should be addressed through positive redirection.

Some of Peppa’s favorite things to do are snuggle with you and watch TV, chew on her tennis ball and play fetch.

Peppa is crate trained and currently spends about 4 hours a day in her bed while her family is at work. She also sleeps in it at night. Peppa has been non-destructive so far, and should be able to have free reign of the home once she has settled in. Peppa does love to spend time in her crate though and considers it to be a safe place, so she should always have access. She is mostly house trained but did have some accidents when she first arrived, mainly because she was too nervous to go outside. She is getting better now that she is more comfortable going out in the yard.

It is clear that Peppa has not spent much time outside as she is very fearful and freezes when someone tries to take her for a walk. Loud noises like trucks and doors slamming are scary for her. For now, Peppa is content to play in the fenced backyard, but her new family should be willing to help Peppa gain the confidence she needs to venture outside for walks.

Peppa understands many commands. She will sit, wait for her food and will go in her crate when you tell her too. To help with her confidence though, Peppa’s family should be prepared to consult with a professional trainer.

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.
