Story
Ranger is the tallest of the males in his litter of 10. He is vocal and loves to tell you about his day and then tell you again! He loves to be pet and looks at a gate as a challenge, not a barrier. He is a typical busy puppy, who loves to play, run, and wrestle. He will be a large dog, as both mom and dad are over 75 pounds. He is looking for a forever home that has some experience with the food motivated lab and stubborn mastiff. It is recommended that he attend a puppy socialization class to become comfortable with friends who are not his siblings. He will be visiting the vet this week for his vaccines, flea and tick treatment, microchip, and wellness screening. He will come with a voucher for his neuter at 6 months of age at our vet in Woodstock. His adoption fee is $500. You must be 21 years old to adopt and provide vet and personal references.

Story
Rocky is one of the smaller male pups from a litter of 10. He is a challenging pup who pushes every limit he can! He will need a firm, patient owner who sets boundaries and stand by them. Like his brothers, he is a typical little boy who loves to run and chase and wrestle until it's time to eat. He will be a large dog, as both mom and dad are over 75 pounds.

Story
Meet Shelby, a cute, sweet, cuddly, energetic girl looking for her furever home. We believe she is about 1-1.5 years old. She was found all alone at a hiking lookout, probably waiting for her people to come back for her. She had no collar or chip, and no-one came to look for her. She was extremely shy, nervous, and hungry and a bit worse for wear when she was found, but she is finding her groove now! She is very eager to please, and a quick study as she is very food motivated. She is currently working on crate training, loose leash walking, sit, down and leave it. She is house trained as long as she is let outside regularly, but she does not ask to go out. She seems to warm up to females quicker than men, but is becoming more confident with time. She doesn't like to be left alone, and is still a bit nervous of new people and places . She is currently being fostered with an older female lab/shepherd/ mastiff mix and is learning the ropes from her. She has learned to swim, fetch, chase sticks, play tug of war, wrestle and is learning to play with toys instead of shoes. She does like to chew! She likes to go for car rides and is developing a fascination for chasing squirrels. We are working on redirecting this new hobby. She has met a few other dogs and cats, but has not spent a lot of time with cats so she may be a bit too interested in them as they resemble squirrels. She has done well with the few older kids she has met . She is looking for a family who can give her lots of love and continue to work with her to help her continue to become more secure and confident. She is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, flea and tick treated and has been spayed. Her adoption fee is $500. You must be 21 years old to adopt and provide vet and personal references. An application to adopt her can be found on our website www.oxfordcountyanimalrescue.com. Click on Adopt, then Dogs for Adoption and scroll to the bottom of the page.

**IF THIS LISTING IS STILL POSTED THIS DOG IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. NO NEED TO EMAIL ASKING IF THE DOG IS AVAILABLE. PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS BIO THOROUGHLY AS INFORMATION ON HOW TO APPLY IS CONTAINED IN THIS LISTING** For Adoption: Pesci! Please read our dog bios carefully to be sure that the dog you are applying for suits your family and lifestyle. We at PDR believe in the benefits of post-adoption training for our dogs and their families. This allows for continued socialization, learning and helps to create a well-mannered and balanced dog. Post-adoption training is a requirement in our adoption process. To apply for adoption and for more information on our process and requirements, visit our website at https://pounddog.ca/adoption-info/. Hey World, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Pesci, named after ‘Joe Pesci’ for my small size but mighty personality and sometimes loud mouth and opinions. I am a long haired Chihuahua, I’m going on 10.5 years old, I weigh around 8lbs and I am gorgeous if I do say so myself. Let’s get the ugly stuff out of the way. I was turned into a pound with limited options and I was on the chopping block. I was apparently growling at people now ok my old home and was peeing all over the house. I hadn’t seen a vet since I was a puppy and as it turned out I was a senior dog with a lot of medical issues, no friends or family that cared and let me tell you, i was hurting. See, my jaw was broken in half, I had a raging bladder infection, big stones in my bladder, one of which got stuck in my urethra, and my mouth was rotting out. In fact I had a hole rotted into my sinus cavity and my teeth literally fell out…one even on the way to the vet! Can you believe that? I mean, no wonder I was cranky and peeing everywhere, I needed help but no one was listening. My foster Mom and Pound Dog Rescue saw me and despite my less than stellar video performance, they wanted to give me a chance. They believed I needed it and although I will only ever publicly admit this once, man, I was desperate. They found me when I really needed it most. My medical issues are all cleared up and I am a healthy guy. My jaw healed in its broken state but it doesn’t cause me any pain, my mouth is just a bit wonky but I call it ‘character’. I have to eat special food because of the stones in my bladder I had before, we really want to keep that from happening again…it sucks! But the good news is, I love the food…so much so that I know exactly when meal time should be and I voice my grievances if it is not delivered on time. Due to the damage done to my urinary tract, I can sometimes still dribble a little (it’s not often, but it occasionally happens) and I need regular bathroom breaks. There is not a lot of time between when I need to go and when you get me outside, so “chop chop! No dilly dallying!”. I stay in my crate when I am left alone and overnight, and I don’t mind it one bit. I actually really like my crate. You’ll just need to make sure that I get plenty of trips outside before I go to hang out in it for an extended period of time. Let me fill you in on what makes me a unique kind of guy looking for just the right match. Due to my previous experiences, I did not like to be touched by hands. Like I said, they have not been good to me and I do not forget that. It took many months to trust my foster Mom but I am now at this place with her that I am actually really affectionate and often seek out physical touch. I like to groom her head, snuggle into her neck and face for cuddles, crawl up onto her chest during morning coffee time and am now ok with her petting me and even rubbing my belly. Of course this is all on my terms because I am very much like a cat; affection when I want it, not clingy, leave me alone when I am not in the mood for it. I won’t be suited to a family with kids or people who don’t understand this as I will get snappy. I give you plenty of warning, so if you push me to the point of losing my…mind…it’s not my fault. I am crystal clear about my boundaries and you have plenty of opportunity to leave me alone. I don’t have teeth so I can’t hurt you, I don’t even want to, I just don’t want you to touch me when I am not in that trusting, affectionate mood. Generally speaking, though, I can handle you putting on a leash, taking me for a walk, but don’t be stroking my gorgeous coat (it’s beautiful, am I right?) when I say ‘no thanks’. I am also super quirky and love cuddling with your feet. I know it’s weird, but feet never hurt me, feet are good. I love snuggling up to them, pulling them in close to me with a paw and showering them with kisses if you let me. You know what else I am? So smart! I come when called, I have learned to sit, lie down and sit pretty. I really do want to be loved and be part of a family, I want to be a good guy. I live with a few other small dogs and I do well and am getting better all the time. I like them, but I have awkward social skills at times. My cues are all mixed up and I can leave dogs so confused about what I really mean or want from them. I am worse than a pre-teen at a grade 8 school dance…trying, but woefully socially unskilled! I am getting better and wouldn’t mind a canine companion, but if I am going to be around other dogs they have to be so patient with a guy like me and not react to every dumb move I make…because I make a lot. I never really left my home for all my years with my other people and I don’t know how to ‘dog’; for 9 years I basically lived without other positive doggy or people friends. Thankfully my foster siblings here are really kind and gentle and they take me in stride. But, they also give me fair corrections when I cross their line and you know what? I respect that…I’m not a fighter no matter what my blustering might tell you. I have grown to love car rides, sometimes I like walks and sometimes I don’t. But you know what I do love? My backyard kingdom. I feel good there, I feel safe and I like to explore all the little hiding spots. So, this is really a must for me as it is one of my big sources of joy. My kingdom needs to be fully secure so I can’t wander out of it because if I do, let me tell you, I’m likely not coming back. This boy is an independent man and he will go where he wants to, no amount of bribing is going to get me back. When it comes to meeting people, ‘no thank you’ to people I don’t know wanting to touch me. I want my space. If I come up to sniff them, it’s because I want to and not on anyone else’s agenda. I will take food from them sometimes, sometimes I won’t. Let’s be honest here, I don’t let my walks down easily and it’s going to take time and understanding for me to feel safe and open up. Random Joe Schmoes are going to have to appreciate me from afar until I am ready. Affection from me must be earned through patience and a history of kindness from you. Maybe I will change my mind about that one day, I have already made so much progress. Please don’t think this is going to be a quick process for me to learn to trust you or anyone else, because it won’t be…but I promise, I can get there. In fact, my foster Mon said I have become such a loving guy that it surprises even her. Apparently I am supposed to tell you other good things. As you know, I can now be quite cuddly when I trust you and feel so inclined. I love to lay down on the couch near you to watch Netflix at night, I am comical and do excited little hops when I am happy. I have started playing social distancing tag with my foster Mike, I play hide and seek, I love Puppacinos and my local Starbucks thinks I am awesome and should have my own social media team. But please, don’t be someone that wants to exploit my sassy mess for internet videos because that is actually pretty stressing for me…not cool. I know I’m quirky, I try every day to do better and I take steps forward all the time. I don’t know if I can ever let all of my walls down, but I try harder every day. And please, don’t apply for me if you think you are saving me. My foster Mom is awesome and she thinks I am super endearing in the weirdest ways, and I don’t need to leave here for someone who thinks they are doing me a favour. I am only going to leave here if someone truly wants to bring me home and love me just as I am. I have had enough of humans letting me down, I need the real deal, unconditional kind of love. I need you to love me knowing I am trying really hard and I do want to be better every day. It’s not an easy road, but I wouldn’t mind a chauffeur to take me down it and show me the good life. If you think you can do that, swipe right…or email Pound Dog…whatever it is the kids do these days.

**IF THIS LISTING IS STILL POSTED THIS DOG IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. NO NEED TO EMAIL ASKING IF THE DOG IS AVAILABLE. PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS BIO THOROUGHLY AS INFORMATION ON HOW TO APPLY IS CONTAINED IN THIS LISTING** For Adoption: Cinnamon! Please read our dog bios carefully to be sure that the dog you are applying for suits your family and lifestyle. We at PDR believe in the benefits of post-adoption training for our dogs and their families. This allows for continued socialization, learning and helps to create a well-mannered and balanced dog. Post-adoption training is a requirement in our adoption process. To apply for adoption and for more information on our process and requirements, visit our website at https://pounddog.ca/adoption-info/. Let us introduce you to Cinnamon! She is a very good looking three year old Lab/Pointer cross, and she is the happiest, most affectionate dog you will meet! She is large sized, about 50 lbs and 26 inches tall (at the shoulder). Cinnamon has shades of chocolate, with a swirl of white fur on her chest and a couple white spots on her toe. Her eyes are honey colored and it is easy to get lost staring into them as she happily pants, smiling at you. Cinnamon is not only good looking on the outside, but is a total sweetheart on the inside. She loves to do the “spin and plop”, cuddle, and fall asleep next to you. She has such a happy and goofy personality that will make you cherish her as part of your family. She is perfectly house trained and crate trained. She has no crate anxiety and will happily hop into the crate on command for breakfast, dinner, or even a treat. She can happily stay in a crate for up to 9 hours if needed and calmly naps during that time. She also sleeps in her crate at night just fine and enjoys a good bedtime snack when she goes in for the night. She is also very comfortable eating her meals in the crate. She is well-behaved indoors. She loves chewing on bones and will entertain herself with them for hours. Cinnamon loves to play tug and play fetch in the yard. She has such a happy playful personality. Cinnamon gets very, very excited about other dogs. She sometimes still barks at a dog while out on a walk. She gets reactive when she sees another dog so we have been working on this with her. She has been improving day by day. It will be necessary for her future owners to continue this training. Her owners will need to be experienced with leash excitability in a dog as well so she is not a suitable dog for a first time dog owner. If you have rules about walking and adhere to them, her walks are very enjoyable. Make sure to keep a positive rapport with her on walks, but also be strict about her walking behaviour. Higher-levels of obedience training will highly benefit Cinnamon as she is very smart & eager to please her owners. The challenge and mental stimulation provided by higher levels of obedience training will allow this sweet dog to work on some of her finer points and keep her brilliant dog brain occupied. Attending dog school is a mandatory requirement to make sure Cinnamon can reach her full potential. Cinnamon is already attending dog classes in foster care and loves the learning and interactions she gets there. Cinnamon is a very healthy, athletic, active dog and her forever home must be up to the task of keeping her exercised. Successful owners will ideally enjoy playing retrieve with Cinnamon, go for fast paced, long walks/runs and take her to obedience training. Cinnamon is not a suitable dog for someone who just wants to take their dog for a walk once a day and not much else. Cinnamon can play too rough for many dogs liking so a home as the only dog would be a best fit for her. Cinnamon is such a people pleaser that doing things with people makes her very happy. She loves to go for car rides and travels very well in the car. She is quiet and relaxing in the vehicle even for long car rides. Cinnamon loves people very much but because of her enthusiasm we would recommend a family with older kids. With her high energy and stimulation levels, she needs to be in a home with no other animals. She loves having a fenced yard so she can run around and play. She is such a fun dog to have around. She is always happy, very affectionate, loyal and loving. We want to make sure that this big sweetheart makes her way to a great adoptive family that will take care of her for the rest of her life.

**IF THIS LISTING IS STILL POSTED THIS DOG IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. NO NEED TO EMAIL ASKING IF THE DOG IS AVAILABLE. PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS BIO THOROUGHLY AS INFORMATION ON HOW TO APPLY IS CONTAINED IN THIS LISTING** For Adoption: Beckett! Please read our dog bios carefully to be sure that the dog you are applying for suits your family and lifestyle. We at PDR believe in the benefits of post-adoption training for our dogs and their families. This allows for continued socialization, learning and helps to create a well-mannered and balanced dog. Post-adoption training is a requirement in our adoption process. To apply for adoption and for more information on our process and requirements, visit our website at https://pounddog.ca/adoption-info/. Beckett is a gorgeous red Moyen (Medium) Poodle weighing 30lb. Beckett’s forever home will need a female presence and experience with timid dogs. He requires his people to have patience and the right environment for a dog that might take time to fully come out of his shell. Beckett is a beautiful, happy and sweet boy, and you may look at his picture and want to help, but please be honest if he is the right dog for you. Adopting a puppy mill dog takes a very special person. It will be challenging at times but also very rewarding. Beckett still sometimes flinches when touched and does not always love cuddle time with you. He is a brave little survivor who continues to grow every day. Beckett is a 3-year-old puppy mill discard who was living in filthy conditions, with minimal nutrition and was under weight. Beckett had limited human interaction and what he did have must have been a negative experience. He came to us as a very shut down and scared little man. Beckett is a very sensitive boy and his time being kept in a kennel with no socialization, positive human contact, exercise, or affection has really impacted his young life. Beckett has been with us in foster care for just over 4 months now. He has been making some big significant breakthroughs in the last couple weeks. Although shy and timid, Beckett is starting to lay on the couch with his head resting in my lap. He has occasionally given sweet little kisses and he now looks for affection as well. He is still a bit unsure how to “ask” for some affection, but he walks closer and closer until I slowly scratch him under his chin and chest. Those are his favourite spots! When I stop, he will move closer again and I will continue to give him more scratches. He has finally learned that human hands are also good. What a HUGE breakthrough!! Beckett determined early on that females are somewhat safe and has accepted his foster mom into his space. Beckett has gradually made some progress with men, but for him to be comfortable, he must have a female presence in his home. Beckett loves his humans and will literally follow you everywhere. No matter where I go, Beckett is right behind me, so close he even steps on my heels. He bounces around excited with his tail up when I get home, offer a treat or even mention going outside. When really excited he likes to prance and spin in circles. He really loves his people; and he is now getting used to be touched regularly. Each small change has been celebrated as a victory and definite steps forward from his beginning. Beckett has worked hard at becoming a member of his foster family. In his early days with us he would not come inside, sat by himself outside of the room we were sitting in, and generally hid in his crate. Today he is the first dog in the house, he leads the pack into the house like he owns it. He loves sitting on the couch with all the humans and foster dogs. He took over my spot on the couch and will sleep all propped up on the pillows. He now lives a life of luxury compared to his early years in a crate, in a barn living in sawdust. What a difference a few months make! Sometimes it was hard not to feel frustration when a dog you so want to help freezes in fear. But this is the reality of a dog who has never learned that people are kind. Beckett is a dog that needs his people to be super patient, and who knows that he is a dog that will be a long-term project, but makes regular strides forward and let me tell you, they are SO rewarding! Beckett absolutely loves the outdoors and enjoys his daily walks, twice per day. He is walked with a martingale collar and is still learning proper etiquette. He will walk out front, but occasionally will still fall into bad habits and start to walk behind us. With some encouragement he will quickly correct himself. He just lacks the confidence some days and is still working on proper walking. He is a quiet walker who does not even acknowledge any dogs that are barking in the area. He just quietly keeps on going! Beckett loves treats, so the way to his heart is through his stomach. This acceptance of food from our hands is a result from months of tossing treats to him from across the room. Patience is key! Beckett’s favourite spot is outside. The very first day we let Beckett into the yard with his foster sisters he ran and played for hours. I think this was his first time running and playing and he sure loved being free! Rain, snow or sun, Beckett loves to be outside. He feels completely free outdoors and turns into a goofy and playful pup. He loves to run, chase and wrestle with his foster dog sisters. He is being fostered with 2 young standard poodles and is always the first to start play time and the last to stop playing. He is a very energetic and lively pup. He is truly himself in the outdoors, so Beckett’s forever family will need to love the outside as much as he does and have a large, fenced yard for him to play in. Beckett now spends most of his time outside his crate. He no longer uses it as his safe spot to hide. He is comfortable in his surroundings and only goes into the crate when left alone. He is typically only crated now for 3-4 hours at most during the day. At night he has opted to sleep on a dog bed next to or with his foster sisters. He is house trained and will go a full 8 hours at night without any issue. In the morning, this seems to be the one time that he always lets his guard down. He will hop onto my bed with the other dogs and will allow lots of rubs and scratches. He always looks for affection in the morning and does not start his day until we all have had some cuddle time. But after that, he is ready to move! He is so excited to start each new day. Beckett is still learning how to be a dog and gains most of his knowledge and confidence from his pack. He has learned how to interact with people and other dogs and his confidence continues to grow from this. Beckett needs to live with a young, energetic, and confident dog. He needs a playmate that can keep up with his energy levels and show him how to navigate through our scary world. Beckett is a Moyen Poodle and has a beautiful red coat. He is considered hypoallergenic as he is a hair breed dog. With this comes regular brushing, bathing, ear cleaning and grooming. Beckett has handled all his baths and grooming well. I have done quick grooms on him and kept it to under an hour and he went through this process without issue. I have kept his coat short so that he does not have to go through regular full brushes. We are still getting him used to being touched so a long brushing does not work for him. Keep his coat short and tidy and you should be able to keep any matting from occurring. Beckett’s ideal home will be one with direct access to a safe fenced, large yard in a quiet rural setting or very quiet neighborhood. He can get overwhelmed by a lot of traffic noises and will not enjoy busy areas with a lot of people around him. Beckett is only crated for 3-4 hours at a time so he would need someone home more than away. Beckett requires an adult only home or a home with older teenage children. Beckett has been fantastic with every dog in our home and bonds quickly with his pack. He needs another dog in the home as he loves to play and follow them around the house. He will make a fantastic playmate for any young energetic dog. However, what Beckett needs most is a person or people who are kind, and patient. He has made huge strides in his foster home and is ready to move on to the next stage of his life in a loving forever home. Beckett is such a sweet and happy boy. He will grow to trust his forever family; he will just move at a different and slower pace than other dogs. Beckett is a wonderful and unique boy who will be counting on his forever family to help him overcome his unpleasant start to life. Are you the family for Beckett?
