Story
COMING SOON- NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL ALL MEDICAL HAS BEEN COMPLETED- NO APPLICATIONS BEING ACCEPTEDHello my name is Kona . I was used as a breeding momma . I am pretty easy going . I love cuddles hanging in the back yard listening to the birds and going for stroller rides. I can walk but not far distance. I am happy just wondering around the back yard to explore. I have very poor eye sight and need drops applied daily - this will be a life long thing for me but I am very good and my foster mom said I'm a pro at it. I have two foster siblings who I enjoy following around and cuddling with. I have had a hard life and am just looking for someone to enjoy my senior years with. If you want someone to hang out with you in the garden or when you watch TV I am your mate.

Hi there, I'm Bobby! Since you're reading this, you're probably looking for your new best friend - and, hey, so am I! I don't care how old you are or what you look like, but in case those things matter to you: I'm 8 years young and I'm that cute, loveable pug in the photo. I've been working hard since arriving at HBR - I'm housetrained, crate trained, an excellent walker, and you should see the progress I've made training my foster mom! She says I'm a super smart guy, but all I did was teach her to lift me up on the sofa when I ask (ok, maybe it's more of a *demand* than an ask) so we can snuggle for hours and watch our favourite shows. I've also trained her to feed me only the finest delicacies: salmon kibble, bully/lamb sticks, and salmon jerky. Foster mom isn't the only one being trained here! After all, I didn't say I was perfect (although I'm pretty close). I'm slowly learning that other dogs aren't as scary as I first thought. Foster mom notices that I'm much more relaxed around dogs who are calm and give me my space. Being the only dog in the home or having a submissive fur brother or sister would be best. I do hope that you will continue working on this with me - I sure am worth it!While I'm not a super active guy, I do love going on walks and being outside. Some of my favourite activities include exploring and sniffing outside in the grass, sunbathing, and supervising foster mom as she works in the garden. I am eager to please and would make an wonderful companion. I just loove all people, big and small, especially my people. Did I mention how much I love my crate? Even though I'd obviously rather spend every second with my foster family, I'm just as content to spend time in my crate while you are out for the day. My perfect match would be someone who loves attention and cuddles! If this sounds like you, what are you waiting for! Let's meet!Home requirements for Bobby- Home with a fenced in yard- if you have a dog, must be submissive (dogs are new to him) - kids are fine but would love a nice stay at home family to snuggle with ( pugs are velcro dogs) Located in Ennismore

Story
Meet Titus-1.5 yr Pug Mix male PLEASE READ ENTIRE PROFILE BEFORE APPLYING Meet Titus! DOB 09-07-22, weighing 22lbs, he is a bundle of intelligence and energy who also gives the best snuggles! Titus was surrendered through no fault of his own and is now fully vetted and ready to find his ideal forever family. He would LOVE to be active in agility or scent training for mental stimulation and to channel his intelligence and very agile, active lifestyle At the same time, having quiet times to relax will give him the balance he needs. He loves to play but also likes his snuggle times. Titus is a bouncy boy who did not have any training prior to joining our rescue and will require a family dedicated to his ongoing training. He would be fine with older children who are dog savvy and understand how to interact appropriately with a high energy dog. * As a young dog with a life expectancy of 15-20yrs, he is not a suitable match for older seniors Titus is vocal at times and would not be a good fit for apartments or attached housing, he would love a fenced yard at his new home to run and play in with his family in between walks/adventures on hikes. Notes from his foster mom YOUR FOSTER DOG'S ENERGY LEVEL: Medium to High Titus is cautious of people he meets on the street and sometimes barks at them in excitement, he is working on his training to redirect with positive reinforcement. In the home, he gets very excited with visitors, jumping up and wanting their attention. Continuous training required in this area. He settles eventually when the attention is not on him. GOOD WITH CATS? Unknown but not recommended due to his likelihood of chasing them. No guarding behaviours observed in any area to this point. As with all dogs, respect during meals and with bones/chewies is ideal to ensure success. HOUSETRAINED? Yes CRATE TRAINED? For travel yes, but Titus is very stressed in a crate in the home and has been a good boy left loose in a dog proofed home Titus does not like to be alone and will whine/howl on and off throughout the time he is alone. He mostly sits or lays at the front door waiting for my return. He is only alone once a week for 4-5 hours and for occasional short periods if I have to run errands. PLEASE ELABORATE ON YOUR FOSTER DOG'S LEASH SKILLS. Titus pulls on leash and requires training in this area but is a bright boy who learns quickly with appropriate training. He is very food motivated and we use high value treats during his training. Titus is fine for grooming/handling with no negative reaction As is typical of young pups, he can be wiggly and occasionally mouth but never bites/no aggression whatsoever. Titus has met other dogs and would love a suitable canine friend who is young and tolerant of high energy dogs who love to play. He respects warnings from other dogs when he is being too much, but would not do well with a dog who is in his face/reactive. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE DOG'S PERSONALITY/TEMPERAMENT Friendly, loving, and playful and loves attention. He is very patient and easy to redirect if you need his attention. He loves to run outside and play in the snow and has an abundance of energy. When playing, he will mouth my hand if he gets too excited but he has never bitten. THINGS NEEDING IMPROVEMENT SPECIFICS PLEASE Titus needs training to not jump on and/or bark at people he meets, both outside and in the home. He needs to learn how to walk on leash without pulling. He responds to basic commands but will benefit from ongoing training to respond to the commands consistently. POTTY HABITS: Titus goes out for potty breaks several times a day in back yard, in addition to his walks. If he needs to go out in between these times, he will stand near door and quietly wimper. So far, he has only pooped in the back yard not on walks and again would do best in a home with a fenced yard Skills/Commands SIT? Yes STAY? Yes WAIT? No LAY DOWN? No LEAVE IT? No OFF? Yes DOWN? Yes COME? Yes ANY OTHER SKILLS/COMMANDS? Titus knows the basic commands but does not always respond consistently to them. This is a work in progress. PLEASE DESCRIBE CURRENT ROUTINES AND PREFERENCES THAT WILL HELP THE DOG SETTLE INTO THEIR NEW HOME: Titus is a very easy going dog. He sleeps with me on the bed at night, and waits until I get up in the morning. He does not go in a crate as he appears to be fearful of it. MANDATORY to have a family comfortable with a dog sleeping in their bed/on their furniture during the day. Titus would be miserable in a home where he is not allowed to do this. We go for a walk when we get up and then have breakfast. He is very patient and sits quietly as his meal is prepared. I have not observed any food aggression. After breakfast he is very energetic and likes to play with his toys and roll around. We go for either a walk or in the backyard throughout the day for additional exercise. If I am working, he will settle and have a nap. At night he likes to play with his toys, chew his bone or snuggle if it's TV time. STRENGTHS/AREAS THEY HAVE IMPROVED ON: Titus is responding more consistently to basic commands than when he arrived, especially to the "off" and "come" commands. He is more relaxed and comfortable In the crate in the car, he readily enters it and only exhibits a bit of shaking at first. I feel with consistent training and time, Titus will learn all his lessons quickly. He is eager to please. TRANSPORTATION-ANY MOTION SICKNESS OR ANXIETY IN VEHICLES? Titus is crated. He has some anxiety and shakes at first. So far he just lies down until the trip is over. He has not barked at people or other vehicles from the car. PLEASE DESCRIBE THE PERFECT ADOPTIVE HOME FOR YOUR FOSTER DOG BASED ON WHAT YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED. He would do best in a household where he is not alone a lot. I think, however, once he realizes he is in his furever home and becomes more comfortable, he quite likely will adjust better to being alone with a consistent family routine. Once Titus feels safe and loved in his new home, and receives the training he needs, he will be an AMAZING pet and member of his new family. He has been an absolute joy to foster! ?? Adoption Fee $750 Notes: *Children must be over 10yrs, respectful and dog savvy with previous experience with dogs in the home. * Mandatory registration with an approved trainer is required to set Titus up for success with his new family *Must be located within Ontario Canada *Inground/ground level Pools and deeper ponds must be separately fenced from yard Hobo Haven is located in St Jacobs Ontario.

Story
Hello, my name is Gordie! I am a young fun Puggle, and have a very mischevious personality! I tend to be a very nosy dog, and want to get into all sorts of good things. I like different items, different textures, and love exploring with my mouth! Sometimes, I like exploring so much that I end up with these mystery items in my tummy! I just can't seem to help myself because I get so curious, I need to taste the good stuff and chew on interesting things. It's safe to say I'll need a pretty clean home and taught some proper boundaries, but I'm already used to being in a crate and it's something that will need to be implemented moving forward. I am a very busy and energetic dog, and need a very busy, fun, and active household. I do well with all people, dogs, cats, you name it, I'm a very social butterfly! I am a bit of a wild child, so while I can go home with dogs and cats, they will need to be ones that can tolerate my high energy and pushy and eager personality, because I can be quite the assertive guy. I think a home without kiddos would be best, not because I don't like them, but because of the training I need, I think it'll be easier and more consistent with mature humans in the home. I would love a home with someone who is active and will keep me busy busy busy. I am quite the character and know I will make you smile and laugh a lot. If you think you have the time, energy, and patience for a little firecracker like myself, then please fill out an adoption application!Check out Gordie on Tiktok! https://tinyurl.com/mtcuh7tf

Story
Buddy! Thats his name AND his personality. This friendly pooch is ready to be your best bud and you are just in luck because he needs a new family to call his own. He is always willing to meet new human friends and give them a nice little how-do-you-do sniff. He can be a little shy/nervous at first and prefers to walk circles around you to check-you-out. He comes around very fast and soon he will be your bestest pal asking for pets, playtime and snackies.What does Buddy REALLY love though? DOGS! If you want to see Buddy come to life with the zoomies, bring him another canine friend. He gets along well with other dogs and his favorite thing to do is to get the other dog to try and chase him! He is a bit of a chonky boy so hes not the fastest (and would definitely lose at a game of tag) but it is so fun to watch him go go go!Speaking of being a chonky boy, his new owner will have to keep him on track with a good diet and not too many treatos as he needs to lose a few pounds. He tries to be a bit picky (only eating wet food or treats) to try and convince you to always give him the good junky foods. Otherwise, Buddy is a healthy boy that is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.Buddy previously had ongoing eye issues in the past but it has been repaired and has no further issues at this time.If you are interested in adopting Buddy, please call the West Region Shelter at 416-338-6271 to get the process started.

Story
Here in Canada- come meet her! Name: Tammy Weight: 52lbs Age: 3.5 years Gender: female Breed: pug/lab mix Color: fawn with white neck colouring Good With Adults: yes, but needs slow and patient introductions. Good With Kids: No kids please Good With Other Dogs: Can be dog selective, slow and proper intros should be followed Good With Cats: No, no small animals Crate Trained: Yes Housebroken: Yes Energy Level: Medium energy when on walks but she’ll sleep for most of the day. Can be handled/touched: Yes Barker: Somewhat Escape Artist: No. She is great at staying within room boundaries within the home. She does not try to escape outside without her leash/harness on. Food Aggressive: No Walks on Leash: Yes Rides Well in Car: Rides well in a crate. Needs a home with a yard: ideally as she has high energy, and likes to have her space to run around and play. Needs Another Dog: No, should be the only dog in home. Can live in an apartment: No Backstory: Tammy (aka Trixie) was pulled from a high killl shelter in Georgia. She was set to be euthanized the day she was pulled. She is a really sweet girl, she loves her people and is a little dog selective. Would do best as an only dog to start out. She could be trained to gain more confidence and possibly be introduced to other dogs. Foster comments: As her foster, we have found Trixie to be a loving and playful dog when she is within our home and backyard. Trixie warmed up to us within the first few days of her staying with us. She is a very sweet girl and she loves and shows affection for the people that have gained her trust. Trixie loves to smell and stalks squirrels/rabbits in our backyard. Make sure you have a well fenced in backyard or large farm with space to run and play. Trixie can become very excited when it’s time for walkies and jumps a bit because of her excitement getting into her leash/harness. She walks decently on a leash however she does pull when she catches a good scent or sight. She can become overstimulated easily and she will need some training to learn how to meet and interact with other dogs and their humans. She might be best as an only dog in your house. During the day she loves to sleep beside us while my husband and I work from home. Trixie is a smart dog. She is properly crate trained. She goes into her crate easily with the motivation of a treat or a simple hand motion when it’s time for bed. She’s only ever barked in her crate for bed time the first night a few times. She is house broken and has never peed or pooped within our house. When she needs to go outside of scheduled walk times she becomes a little restless and that’s her signal she needs to go outside for a bathroom break. When we first got Trixie, she did not know any commands. She is smart and now responds to “come” and “sit” in the short time we’ve had her. We’re positive she’s capable of learning more commands. Trixie does not try to steal human food, during meals she will silently beg, but after a few minutes she’ll give up and lay down. She loves toys and will destroy them. So make sure to get the durable, long lasting ones. She loves her Kong rope toy fox (once she removed the squeakers and stuffing) and her flexible chew ball, she’ll play with these toys daily. Every couple days, she’ll get a case of the zoomies, which is adorable. So make sure to have a few toys on hand when that happens. She has some resource guarding tendencies with her toys, however, if she gets a hold of a non-toy it can easily be switched out with either a real toy or a treat.
