Meet Sweet Pea the Brown Eyed Beauty! Poor Sweet Pea has been through a lot in her very short life. Rescued from the streets of Santiago, (Dominican Republic) with a badly broken leg, she was taken in for surgery to repair the leg. The veterinarians repaired it as best as they could, but unfortunately her leg did not heal as well as they had hoped. They tell us not to worry though because she does not seem to be in any pain and can get around very well. She would also benefit from a daily glucosamine supplement. Recently, Sweet Pea also suffered a traumatic eye injury. When her foster went to wake her for dinner, she noticed that Sweet Pea’s eye had popped out of its socket. She underwent emergency surgery to repair the eye and has been put on antibiotic eye drops, and the eye has healed well.

Despite all of this, Sweet Pea is a remarkably spunky and happy dog and does not let her disability slow her down. It is believed that she may have been injured for quite some time before being rescued because she has adapted so well. She can go up and down stairs (although her ideal home is one with few stairs and/or a family willing to carry her up and down them) and loves to play in the yard. Sweet Pea will require a family that understands her special needs, both short term and long term.

A real lap dog, her foster mum describes her personality as “AWESOME”! She says that Sweet Pea loves to be held and cuddled, sleep in your lap and that her big brown eyes will make any heart melt. She is a friendly little girl who likes to meet new people, and does well with kids too. When her foster mum comes home, Sweet Pea runs up to her, stands up on her back legs and begs to be picked up. Sweet Pea would prefer a home where her people are home more often than not as all she wants to do is be with her family.

Sweet Pea is dog friendly but is too little to play with big dogs and needs a home with a smaller pup. She does not like cats.

She is crate trained and will sleep on her crate at night but would prefer to cuddle up with you in bed. She is mostly house trained, but does not yet know how to ask to go out so she should be taken outside consistently. Sweet Pea is low to medium energy but loves to go for walks and will pull you as quickly as she can. She will walk next to her foster mum if she leaves little slack on the leash, but Sweet Pea would prefer to lead the way! Sweet Pea has nice manners but knows little in the way of basic commands. She is working in sit, but only when there are treats involved.

Sweet Pea’s foster mum says that if you have not already fallen in love with her story, you are sure to fall in love with her sweet and tenacious personality. If you’re looking for someone to cuddle up with this winter, Sweet Pea is the girl for you!

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 to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

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