Meet Nila! Nila’s foster describes her as a kind, sweet, gentle and loving lap dog that doesn’t quite appreciate her size! Unfortunately, this gorgeous girl was surrendered into rescue when her owner was hospitalized and could no care for her any longer. With people she knows, she is a snugly, lovey girl that gives kisses and hugs, and will push her head under your hand to pet her. She can be timid and shy of new people at first, especially men, so proper introductions are important. Nila needs an owner experienced with large breeds, and one who will advocate for her well being by insisting strangers respect her boundaries. She is great with children who are respectful, but due to her size, would prefer a family with older kids (10+) or no kids at all.

Nila can be selective with her dog pals, and so a dog free home is best. Proper introductions to other dogs are essential and her new family should have an understanding of body language and can monitor her during play with other dogs. No cats please.

Nila is playful and high energy and needs an active family that will take her on lots of outdoor adventures and walks. She loves any and all toys, but needs durable toys that she can’t destroy. Nila does best with a 45 minute walk in the morning, and 45 minute walk in the evening and would benefit from backyard play time in addition to her walkies. She pulls on her leash, and knows how to use her height and weight as leverage to “drop and pull”. For this reason, we recommend she is not walked by young children, and she does benefit immensely with the use of a prong collar. She will need someone who is committed and devoted to leash training and etiquette. Nila does well with the “nothing in life is free” training philosophy and her new family should be willing to continue on with this.

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.

Our adoption fees are as follows:

The adoption fees for our dogs are as follows:

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

- A dog 13 mos and up is $450.
