My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Hatchi, a beautiful Husky with gorgeous blue eyes. She is 6 years old and has an incredibly soft hair coat. She weighs 47lbs. Hatchi is an extremely quiet and affectionate gal. She is gentle and friendly with everyone. She is great with all dogs, very social. She enjoys puppies too but can play a bit too rough with them. She has ignored the parrots in their cages but wouldn't trust her with them if they were out. Three days after arriving in foster care, Hatchi suffered a seizure. She had a few before we got her to the vet. The Vet advised that there is no medication that can stop them but the medicine that exists is to limit the amount they have. Since going on the medication, Hatchi had not had one seizure. She has had bloodwork before the meds and a few times after and it remains normal. The medicine she is on twice daily is just over $1.00 a day so very inexpensive. Hatchi has a good appetite but has a sensitive stomach. She does well on food with grain, currently on Go Salmon with Healthy Grains. She is fed 1 1/4 cups twice daily with her medicine. Hatchi is house trained and pee pad trained. She takes treats gently from your hand. She enjoys being brushed and is a big shedder due to her breed. Hatchi sleeps on the bed with his foster parents until she gets warm them jumps off. She loves the cooler weather and we know she will love being in the snow. She doesn't get sick in the car but needs to be securely fastened as she wants to get up and kiss the people in the front. She does not need a crate but does require lots of chew toys as she will get bored if left alone. Hatchi will require work on a leash and a body harness as she has not had any training in this regard. She would do very well in obedience classes. Hatchi is not a barker, she will talk to you when it's time to eat or if you get her very excited. She is light on her feet and can jump on the bed with ease. Hatchi loves children but would do best with older children as she gets too excited and would bowl them over. This is one sweet pup and some vets have said she is 6 years old some say 8 but whoever is lucky enough to adopt her will fall totally in love with her. The ideal home for Hatchi would be one with a calmer environment, not a lot of activity within it. She is great with routine and a family that walks her twice daily would be perfect. Hatchi is spayed, up to date with vaccines, 4DX tested negative, on Phenobarb for seizures, and on Revolution for heartworm/flea/tick prevention. A fully fenced yard (minimum 5 feet high), a cat-free home, and a Veterinarian History of Compliance are mandatory in order to apply for our Hatchi.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All of our animals are adopted out to Ontario, Canada residents only. Foster Families will reside within Southwest Middlesex. All canines are tested for Heartworm if they are deemed old enough to have contracted it. Our fosters are all spayed or neutered if over the age of 6 months. They are all on heartworm prevention and or Revolution to ensure fleas or ear mites exist. Each "adoptee" is up-to-date with vaccines and vaccination certificates and health records will be given to the "adopters".

Our Adoption Process:

1) Please review the various fosters on our "Available for Adoption" page. Read the bio's carefully. Look for a foster that matches the dynamics of your current home. Each foster has different temperaments and characteristics, so know what you want to have in a companion. If you don't see a possible match, then please continue your search for a rescued canine elsewhere as they are hundreds of groups with thousands of animals looking for their ideal "forever homes".

2) If you find what you believe may be a match for your family, please complete the adoption application by clicking on the "Application for Adoption" page then, clicking on the link found on the page.

3) Your application will be reviewed within 48 hours and you will be responded to by e-mail advising you or whether or not we feel you are a potential match.

4) If you are considered a potential match, will will make arrangements via e-mail to setup a telephone interview with both spouses in the home. If we mutually agree, after the interview, that it the may very well be a match, the foster home will setup an interview with you either at your home or at the foster home. All family members who reside in the home as well as as any resident canines that live with you must be present for the home interview. If you live locally, there will be a 24 hour waiting period in order for both parties to think about the foster you have just met. If you live more than 1 hour away from the foster home then the foster home will have the choice of making a decision while you are there or advising that they wish to think about it over a 24 hour period. The foster home will have final say on whether or not it is deemed to be good choice and will advise the applicant of their decision. All decisions are final so we please ask that you respect the knowledge of the foster home as they really do know the animal they are caring for best.

5) If your family are chosen as a "forever home" for our foster, then you will need to complete and sign an adoption contract outlining our policies and procedures.

6) All adoption fees are on a cash or email interac basis only, and we will provide you with a receipt of payment. Please note this receipt is NOT a tax receipt as we are not a registered charity.

Go meet their pets

All of our companions are in foster care. Only those applicants whose applications have been deemed a potential match and whereby interviews have been conducted may be contacted for a viewing in either the foster home or the potential adopter's home.
