We would love to welcome Millie into the Fetch + Releash family on October 1st, 2023! In order for Millie to come into our care, we need a committed family. As a foster-to-adopt family, you'll be expected to take her home on her arrival date. You will then have two weeks to get to know your new furry house guest before committing to adoption. At the end of two weeks, if you choose not to move forward with adoption, we simply ask that you continue to provide a safe and loving home until their new forever family can be found.
Each bio was created by our rescue partners based on their interactions with the dogs. Fetch + Releash has a full disclosure policy however we cannot guarantee a dog against parasites or diseases, nor can we guarantee a dog's nature/behaviour. Many of these dogs are coming directly from the shelter and so you should expect there to be a transitional period. Be prepared to deal with common issues like potty training, leash walking, and socialization. Cat and kid safety assessments are often based on their personality and not necessarily on actual interactions.
Where possible, the majority of vetting will be completed prior to coming to Canada, however, foster-to-adopt families may be required to travel to our partner vet Mississauga, ON for further vet care.
During your foster-to-adopt trial, you'll receive the support of a Fetch + Releash mentor to help you through the transition and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Foster-to-adopt families will be required to pay a $200 deposit on the adoption fee and sign our foster-to-adopt waiver in advance. If you choose not to adopt, your $200 will be refunded to you within 30 days of your dog being adopted into a new family provided you see your pup through to adoption. If you choose not to see your dog through to adoption, you will forfeit your deposit.
Foster-to-adopt families will be expected to provide their own supplies. Visit https://www.fetchandreleash.ca/adoption-info for more info on mandatory supplies.
Millie / Female / 4yrs / 52lbs / Beagle Mix / Calm and Sweet / From Tennessee
Millie, along with another dog we believe might be her pup, was discovered in a park by a kind lady and her two children. Millie displayed great calmness and sweetness around the kids, prompting the lady to ensure their safety by reaching out to our partner rescue. Millie and her companion had ventured from the park to a nearby field but when their rescuer arrived they readily approached the her and willingly hopped into her car.
Millie is an easy-going dog who rarely barks, even in the midst of numerous barking dogs and curious cats that often come right up to her kennel. Her future family should be dedicated to helping her with fundamental training and beyond as her past remains a mystery. With her calm demeanor and lack of jumping tendencies, Millie would thrive in a household with dog-savvy children. She could also benefit from some weight management once she reaches Canada. Millie seems to have known the love of a caring home before and is eager to shower her new family with affection and loyalty.
Millie tested positive for Ehrlichia which is a common tick-borne disease that stays in the bloodstream for many years. This has been treated, and moving forward regular yearly bloodwork would be recommended. Although this should not cause any issues moving forward, it's important that if Millie required surgery or a dental, pre-operative blood work (CBC+Platelet count) are completed beforehand.
