Gus - Gus came to us as a stray in January 2012. When he first arrived at the shelter he had a mouthful of rotten teeth, very overgrown nails, missing fur and was very underweight. We quickly got him to our vet where all of his rotten teeth were removed and bloodwork was taken to make sure that he was healthy! While at the vet he was aged to be around 10 yrs. His bloodwork came back perfect and with his mouth feeling much more comfortable he started putting back on weight. Gus is very hard of hearing, it does not affect him in any way other than that he is a VERY sound sleeper! He would do better in a home with no young children where he would be startled or frightened. We have noticed here at the shelter that Gus does have a food allergy. He is currently on a hypoallergenic dry food which he is doing fantastic on. When he is given any other kind of food or treats he gets VERY itchy!!! Gus is great with larger dogs but gets quite excited around the younger dogs! He is a very sweet boy who loves to go for walks and lounge around the house, he is looking for a low energy home that is looking for a loving companion!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hippo, a Barrie Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei for sale in Barrie, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Barrie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrie 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 Barrie 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 Shar Pei breeders who help with Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrie paves the way for another one to be saved.
