We are headed to the Dominican Republic this weekend to bring home 4 very special friends; Cruz. Winston, Duke and Sweet Pea! Yes, it's true that each of these pups has a very sad story to tell, but they are just a few short days away from a new and wonderful life here in Canada!
They will be arriving to Toronto on Saturday Dec 3rd and we are seeking foster or foster-to-adopt homes for each of these beautiful little souls. If you or someone you know may be interested, please contact email@example.com or submit an application at http://www.fetchandreleash.ca/dog-adoption/
Sweet Pea / F / 2 yrs / 8 lbs / Chihuahua Mix
Meet Sweet Pea the Brown Eyes Beauty! Poor Sweet Pea has been through a lot in her very short life. Rescued from the streets of Santiago 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. Sweet Pea needs to have a very tiny plate placed in her leg to stabilize it however they have been unable to locate such a small one. They tell us not to worry though because she is not in any pain and can get around very well. 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 seems to be hearing 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 and loves to play in the yard. Sweet Pea will require a family that is understanding of 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 she seems to do well with kids too. She has been introduced to several 8 year olds did just fine!
Sweet Pea is dog friendly and loves to play with the other dogs in foster care. She is not tested with cats and so, a cat free home is preferred.
Sweet Pea does not know many commands, but will come when called. She is crate trained and mostly house trained, but will occasionally have accidents, so her new family should be willing to help her with this.
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! Please submit an application to http://www.fetchandreleash.ca/dog-adoption/
