Story
TEDDY 🖤 This adorable guy is Teddy. Located in BRANTFORD, ON Weight: He is approximately 50 lbs. Good with dogs: Teddy ignores small dogs and likes to wrestle with bigger dogs. Teddy does best with submissive dogs or dogs that can recognize when he has had enough of playing. He would do best as an only pet. Good with cats: No Good with kids: Teddy would do best in a home without children. Housetrained: In progress. Crate Trained: Yes Leash Trained: Teddy is great on the leash. He requires the occasional reminder not to pull but responds very quickly to corrections. He knows basic commands like sit and down. He knows to stay until he is told “free”. As well he knows “place”. Energy level: High Health Concerns: None HW status: Negative Spay/neutered?: Yes Tell us about this dog: Teddy is a great dog but he is not for first time dog owners. He is extremely lovable and is always happy to see you. He has a few quirks worth noting. First off, he has springs as feet! This boy can jump. He would make an excellent agility or watersport competitor. Secondly, when he wags has tail his entire backend moves - he has a wiggly butt. It is absolutely adorable. Finally, Teddy has anxiety and reactivity. Teddy's foster parents have attended private training lessons and report that he is learning appropriate means of dealing with his anxiety and reactivity. He wants to please and is a quick learner. On going training would be extremely beneficial to both Teddy and his future adopters to help them both bond and understand each other's needs and expectations.

Story
Kody Breed: Pointer/ Cattle Dog mix Gender: Male Weights: 46 lbs Age: 2 yrs Good with dogs: Yes Good with cats: yes Good with kids: Yes older kids Housetrained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Leash Trained: Yes Energy level: Medium Health Concerns: None HW status: Negative Spay/neutered?: Yes Tell us about this dog: Kody was saved from euthanization at a high kill shelter in San Antonio, Tx. It is believed that at some point Kody was physically abused and would get defensive when he felt threatened. Kody has come a long ways and his trust in people has grew more and more everyday. He is an active fun boy who loves kids, getting belly rubs, and playing with toys. Kody is very treat motivated and is eager to learn new things. He enjoys car rides. Kody loves going for walks, hiking, and/or jogging. Kody had been through behavioral training prior to coming into our rescue. These are notes from the trainer. Kody knows multiple commands. Below are the commands he knows and notes from his trainer: - look at me/pay attention Sit Come here- recall Touch- nose to hand target command Wait- pause in action- ESPECIALLY at doors!! Settle- relax Leave it- back away and leave that alone (barking/fixation/food/ leash excitement) Place- go to k-bed (point) Let’s go- change in direction/follow me Kennel- go into kennel or crate “Uh-uh”(buzzer type sound) or firm NO SIR for verbal correction. “Ok” for release WITH FOOD- - ANY resource guarding must be corrected verbally and redirected with obedience. As soon as he trusts you he is fine, but with new people He will test. ANY physical threat or punishment will overwhelm and escalate him- his behavior demonstrated that someone tried to punish the growling out of him and he gets defensive- you must redirect him into the bed and release him to eat when friendly and calm. He is calmer and eats better in a home environment- crate, hand feeding or bowl by your feet in a house he does well with. In a kennel he tends to be more defensive, so work outside the kennel barrier, then move inside and get him comfortable with you being in there with him while he eats before touching him while he eats.

Story
Jazz Female / 12 years / spayed Cairn Terrier x mini Schnauzer cross Meet Jazz the senior dog dumped at a shelter & who deserves a great home to live out the rest of her life. She’s 19 lbs & has a beautiful Smokey coloured coat! She will need regular grooming & brushing. She was severely matted when we rescued her, with feces cemented into her coat :( We don’t know a whole lot about her past but she has lived in a home & was housetrained. Accidents should be expected as she adjusts to her new home! She does not belong in a shelter & should have a warm comfy dog bed to lounge in :) Health notes: - cataracts on eyes from old age (no treatment needed right now) - can nip when stressed out (kids are not advised) - a very patient, kind owner is needed - has some stomach sensitivities and seems to be quite picky with food, eating very little if not encouraged - we therefore need an owner who’s home most of the time (retired or works from home) & who is extremely patient to allow Jazzy to open up and feel safe If you’d like to foster to adopt Jazz apply now: You can find my form " Rescue Dog Adoption Application" at: https://form.jotform.com/211694512438255 Currently in Hamilton, ON Adoption fee is $500

Slick Male / 2.5 yrs / 59lbs / Tree Walker Coonhound / Social & Loving / Sweet & Playful / The Best Boy Housetrained: yes Crate Trained: yes Leash Trained: yes Energy Level: Medium - High Prey Drive: Yes, squirrels Health Concerns: none HW Status: negative Spay/Neutered: yes Current Living Situation: Currently living the bachelor life in his own run with access to a dog house but has lived amongst many other dogs. Tell us about this dog: Meet Slick, the dashing hound with a perpetually big ole smile and an even bigger tongue that adds to his charm. This energetic and attention-loving pup is ready to light up the life of his forever family. Slick’s wiggly excitement when people approach is contagious, and he’s seeking a family with an active lifestyle to match his own. An ideal adventure or hiking buddy, Slick’s calm and settled demeanor shines through as long as he receives the necessary physical and mental stimulation to expend his puppy-like energy. As a true hound, Slick may express himself with barks and howls, especially when alerting or seeking attention. While he may be vocal, his love for companionship and excitement for life make him a delightful addition to any home. In a multi-dog household, Slick prefers separate meal times to avoid any food-sharing disagreements. With his youth, he’ll benefit from further training, and his potential as a lifelong best friend is undeniable. Slick’s perfect match is a family with a yard, ensuring he has the space he needs to thrive. It’s important not to leave him unattended, and a GPS tracking device is required to keep up with his solo adventures. With a serious case of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), Slick is eagerly waiting to find his best friend – someone to embark on exciting adventures through life together. If you’re ready to provide love, training, and a lifetime of companionship, consider adopting Slick. Your home will be brighter, and your heart fuller with this charming hound by your side. Adopt Slick and let the adventures begin! Foster to adopt homes welcome! Adoption fee is $750 You can find my form “ Rescue Dog Adoption Application” at: https://form.jotform.com/211694512438255
