I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Torque is a beautiful, two-month-old, Beagle puppy. What can be cuter? He along with his seven littermates is just an innocent pup who needs someone to take care of his every need. The effort to find new homes for these innocent dogs is staggering. Organisations like Animatch, Rosie’s, Kiko, and countless others expend vast resources – people, money, time and volunteer effort in a massive and compassionate effort to save just a few of the animals. And believe us, there are just as many that are left behind who face certain death. Anyone breeding puppies in large quantities, with no thought for their long-term welfare, and pushing them onto the market purely for profit, is a major contributor to the over-population problem. These animals are continually churned out from puppy mills and backyard breeders. The vast quantity being bred is fuelled by the continuous demand to ‘replenish stock’ resulting from every impulse purchase via a pet shop, newspaper ad and the internet (i.e. Kijiji, Craig’s List). The thousands of “Mom and Pop” backyard operators - unregistered and unregulated—across the province further contribute to the problem by producing many thousands of litters each year. Equally responsible is Th person who doesn’t want to have their dog sterilized for various reasons (believe us, none of them valid) are a significant source of over-breeding with all the consequences that it produces.
Torque is completely unaware that he and his sisters and brothers have dodged a bullet. Animatch plans to ensure that these puppies will go to homes that will love and cherish them for their entire life (not for two years which is the average that dogs in Quebec remain in their home). The requirements for adopting Torque are: 1) person who is home a lot during the day; 2) experience, preferably with Beagles or other hounds; 3) fenced yard a must (Beagles follow their nose at every opportunity); 4) willingness to do obedience training; 5) active home
