Reggie (was Red)'s Story...
Feb 9 - Reggie has started his heartworm treatment. We were saddened to find that his pretreatment x-rays showed a bullet from a beebee gun in his abdomen. We know he's had it rough, we may never know just how rough. We are working on Reggie's separation anxiety. He is a great guy but can't seem to catch a break. He is once again available for adoption.

October 8, 2009 - Reggie is an AMAZING guy. He is a young adult with a fantastic disposition, despite showing signs of a rough life. He has many scars on his face and body, including a very long straight scar along his right ribcage. We're not clear how he may have gotten these scars. He also arrived with a very defeated and hopeless demeanour, which is visible even on his shelter pics. Unlike his buddy Razor, Reggie seems to have been very aware that he was indeed in trouble.

Reggie has fit right into his foster family, which contains dogs, cats, and older kids. He's been excellent with everyone and everything since day one. This is more remarkable because we had no time to vet him prior to his transport, so he showed up as in intact male in a house with 2 neutered males. Most people think that intact males fight more because they are more aggressive, but actually it's neutered males who don't tend to accept intact males and will often pick fights - it's not usually the intact one starting them. So that he was accepted fairly easily by his foster dogbrothers says that he has an exceptionally easygoing and approachable disposition with other dogs. He completely ignored the cats...a pleasant surprise. He did bust out of his crate the first night, but did nothing. He has not been destructive or shown any bad habits yet, and appears to be housetrained and good in all the situations he's seen with us so far. Reggie appears to be a cattledog cross with who knows, retriever? He is a young adult male who we are really looking forward to having a smile on his face again and enjoying life, a dog as nice as him really deserves it.

October 2, 2009 - Thanks to some fantastic people Red is now safe and in foster care. More information about this handsome guy will be available shortly.

RED - EXTREMELY URGENT - was to be gassed September 28 - only alive due to a plea by a shelter volunteer to give her a bit more time to find someone to take him. Guessed to be a Retriever x Cattledog. Very handsome - very distressed in shelter - young male - we will fully vet but need someone to go out on a limb for him - his current status is day by day. If we can line up somewhere for him to go, they will not hold him til we can get him, and not kill him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Labrador Retriever for sale in Guelph, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Labrador Retriever 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!
