Matt's Story...
Hi there. Um, my name is Matt? I'm a 5 year old and 30lb (ruff-ly) doggy that is probably a mix of shih tzu/cocker spaniel. I'm sorry I don't know much of my past - you see, I was kept outside all the time and not given much attention until it was time to breed.

When I came to CaliCan, I had terribly overgrown and MATT-ed fur (hence my name). A lovely groomer lady came to my rescue and made me the handsome boy I am today. I am a gentle soul, showing no signs of aggression to my foster human siblings. In fact, I adore my foster sister - she is so great with me. I was never allowed to play in my past life, so this is something new and sort of exciting to me. I'm starting learn this is an okay thing to do. I was fed bad human junk food in my past life, so it's difficult for me to get used to healthy, well-balanced dog-formulated food - my foster mom is helping me though a lot with this. My favourite thing? You talking to me - I thump my tail in such joy. I just love this. I love to be around people and I know with the right family, I will shine.

I am fixed, current on all my shots, dewormed, seen by a vet, groomed (see my additional photos at the CaliCan website - www.calicanrescue.com/dogs) and made sure I'm healthy as can be! My adoption fees are $300. If you have already submitted an adoption application in the past, please email calicanrescue@gmail.com and let them know you love me. If you haven't yet filled in the application, go to www.calicanrescue.com/adoptionapplication - they'll call you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Matt, a Edmonton Shih Tzu/Cocker Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Cocker Spaniel for sale in Edmonton, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Edmonton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Edmonton 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 Edmonton 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 Shih Tzu/Cocker Spaniel breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Cocker Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Edmonton paves the way for another one to be saved.
