Franky *Adopted Apr/17's Story...
This handsome guy is our Persian Prince Frankie! He was rescued from the streets of Iran where he’d become an internet sensation - he was cute and tiny, but completely hairless from a severe case of demodectic mange. Despite a large stray dog problem there, he stood out to locals and they arranged to get him to VAFA shelter. We are working with VAFA to place him because he’s cute as anything, but is all adolescent and needs the right home that understands puppy behaviour and how to deal with it.

Frankie chews a lot (his foster parents think he should be called Chewbacca) but prefers dog chew toys which is nice - though like most puppies, he can make mistakes and chew things he shouldn’t. He’s crate-trained but sometimes noisy in the crate - he’s settling fairly quickly in it in foster care. Frankie is an active guy who loves the outdoors and would love a place with a fenced yard so he can go and get his zoomies out frequently. He gets along with other dogs but has had a couple incidents in foster care and on a trial adoption where he’s gone after another dog in the presence of food. He can play rough with cats but can live with the right one. He’s still puppy mouthing, nipping, and counter/table-surfing - we’re working on all of that. He has a big huge heart and a nice disposition - he’s just a handful right now, in the midst of adolescence! With proper handling, he’s going to turn out to be a great adult; he is a quick study and has a good attitude, and likes to work for food. Due to his puppy behaviours he’s better matched with older or no kids. He would love an active family or person.

nb - Frankie recently had a small flare-up of demodex - this is probably in large part due to the stress of several moves recently. He is being medicated for that and also for giardia. It should be noted that demodex is a common skin mite, but when it causes problems, it’s due to an insufficient immune response from the dog, and while it’s not uncommon for young dogs to have localized demodex, it should be noted that this could recur even later on, if he’s under stress. Immune boosters would be a great idea for Frankie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Franky *Adopted Apr/17, a Guelph Anatolian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Anatolian Shepherd for sale in Guelph, or seeking a Anatolian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Guelph.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Guelph already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Guelph breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Anatolian Shepherd breeders who help with Anatolian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Guelph paves the way for another one to be saved.
