No Out of Province Adoptions and Canada.No Adoptions outside our rescues adoption area will be accepted. Adoption Area: Edmonton, Saint Albert, Sherwood Park, Devon, Beaumont, Leduc, Spruce Grove and Stony Plain, Fort Saskatchewan, Morinville. Please email us at Heartprintsdogadoptions@gmail.com and request "All About Our Rescue document." Please introduce yourself, family and home environment when you email us at Heartprintsdogadoptions@gmail.com Adoptable Gigi Breed: Shih Tzu Weight: 6 lbs Age: 2 years old Approximately Sex: Spayed Female Energy level: Medium Cats: Not Tested Dogs: Loves other friendly small-breed dogs and ones to play with. Kids: Older children over the age of 10. Medical: Moisture Eyes Drops as needed. Please note that basic force-free dog obedience training classes are a mandatory requirement for adoption from Heart Prints Dog Rescue Society. These classes are not included in the adoption fee and must be completed before finalizing the adoption process. I am Gigi, a delightful spayed female Shih Tzu, approximately 2 years of age. I am currently seeking a compassionate and patient family who can understand and support my ongoing potty training journey. While I have not received formal training in this area, I am making progress with the assistance of Heart Prints Dog Rescue Society. I am gradually improving my use of pee pads and have demonstrated the ability to go potty outside when provided with a covered potty break area that protects me from the elements. During colder weather, I appreciate the comfort of puffer dog jackets to keep me warm. To ensure a successful transition, I kindly request that my potential adopters carry me outside and accompany me during potty breaks. I am eager to meet Joanna at For The Love of Paws Pet Services, where I can receive the necessary training to become a well-behaved companion. Please be advised that this training is a non-negotiable requirement for my adoption from Heart Prints Dog Rescue Society. I am crate trained for sleeping during the night or when you are away from the house. I require someone who understands the importance of daily eye cleaning to prevent eye infections, although I may not enjoy it, I tolerate it. I display excitement during mealtimes by dancing on my hind legs. However, I do bark, making me unsuitable for apartments, condos, or townhouses. I tend to bark when excited, playing, eating, or when my personal space is invaded by another dog. A busy household with constant people coming and going would not be an ideal environment for me. **Disclaimer: We only adopt to force free homes, the adoptive family must continue force free practices after adoption. We are volunteer based and although we would love to respond to all interested potential adopters we can only contact the homes we want to move forward with for an adoption.

Grooming: Nails every 6-8 weeks Bath and Tidy every couple of months full groom every 3-4 months. I have undergone crate training for sleeping during nighttime or when you are away from home. Currently, I am experiencing the puppy stage, which has resulted in certain previously non-frightening things becoming sources of fear. Although I may bark within my crate, I eventually settle down once I recognize that it is bedtime. In the event that I am vocalizing loudly and pawing at the crate door, it is imperative that you let me outside immediately as I have an urgent need to relieve myself. I will promptly attend to my pottying needs outdoors. I require a variety of suitable chew toys, enrichment treats such as lick mats, and treat balls, among other things. I have a history of chewing on inappropriate items because I am a puppy and still learning. This is where Joanna from For The Love Of Paws Pet Services comes in to assist me and my new family. I am a very affectionate puppy who enjoys giving kisses and cuddling with you on the couch or a chair while watching TV. I enjoy playing fetch and chewing on my toys. I am not a suitable pet for apartments, condominiums, or townhouses due to my vocal nature. I require a home with a yard where I can play and run freely. **Disclaimer: We only adopt to force free homes, the adoptive family must continue force free practices after adoption. We are volunteer based and although we would love to respond to all the applications, we can only contact the homes we want to move forward with.

Story
My name is Jasper, I am a beautiful bully mix roughly 6 years old. I have had some food sensitivities and my skin was a little bit itchy, but since I've been eating a fish based dog food I'm thriving! I am a healthy, happy and friendly boy, and loving life. I am fun and silly. I like to chase my tail, play tug, go for car rides, and chewing on stuffies! I will definitely destroy the stuffies if they squeak, it's a must! I also like sleeping on your bed or curled up beside you on the couch. I love all people and I'm good with kids too. I'm not so good with the kitties so a home without them would be best. I get along with most dogs but prefer to have my people all to myself. If I was the only pet in a home, I would think that is perfect. I am good on leash and like going on walks. I know all the commands well and pay attention to my people. If you think Jasper would be a good fit for your family, please fill out the adoption application.

Story
Hi, my name is Trixie and I'm a beautiful, well behaved girl who would be the best furry companion. I've been passed around a lot but my foster mom says that's just because I haven't gone to the right home for me yet, because I'm really no trouble at all and am happy just to lie nearby. I'm a good girl when left alone in the house, walk great on leash, love car rides, never bark and know all the basic commands including a few tricks which I will happily entertain you with! I'm great with people big and small, but I don't like cats and I'm pretty selective about other dogs so should be the only pet in the home. I'm pretty agile and can scale fences easily so I would need a little extra vigilance when in the yard or I might go for a little adventure. Keep me safe and I will repay you a hundred fold with my good behaviour and unconditional love. Breed: Siberian huskyAge: 3 yearsSize: MediumGood with people: YesGood with kids: YesGood with cats: NoGood with dogs: NoHouse trained: YesKennel trained: No kennels - gets very stressed. No problem when left in house alone.
