Update August 19, 2013

Today we say goodbye to Russell, he had a wonderful life with his great fur parents and his Eskie Sister.  He has had heart trouble for a few years now, and today he gave up the fight to keep on going.  Rest in Peace Russell – You were a super awesome friend!!


Russell is a 2 year old Miniature American Eskimo Spitz, weighing in at 12 lbs. He needs a foster home who will be willing to keep him for a couple of months to re-train him. He has gone to many training programs, and has even had one on one training. He knows all his commands – but needs a refresher AND most importantly needs a consistent handler.

He was surrendered by his owners, because he bites them. However, he has not bitten anyone in our rescue and has met many people. We ask that only experienced dog people contact us to help with Russell’s behavioural re-programming.

A home with no children would be a must. We are very willing to have one of our certified dog trainers come to your home and help teach you how to train, handle and socialize him. Consistency and discipline is the key to Russell’s future.

If you feel you are up to the challenge, and want to experience the rewards of helping a dog that would have otherwise lost his life, please contact us at dhanametta@yahoo.ca for a foster application.

Please be aware that Russell will not be up for adoption until his formal training has been completed.


Russell meets Sage


Jack – Update – In Memory

Jack didn’t get to stay with us for too long, but his foster family sure did fall in love with the little guy.  At least he got the best of everything before he passed.  He suffered bouts of seizures and instability, off and on for a few months.  Poor little dude.  

Super special thanks to Jack’s foster parents, who ended up adopting him.  We wish there were more people like you out there!  So many needy dogs would be so lucky.

Darby is an 11 year old chihuahua, looking for her permanent retirement home.  Her owners have passed and she is having a difficult time adjusting to being left alone during the day.

She is a little intimidated of larger dogs, and takes some time to befriend strangers.  She needs a loving, quiet home with no young children, where someone is home for the majority of the day. 


If you feel you can provide Darby with the home she needs, please do not hesitate to contact us for an adoption application.

Adoption fees are by donation for senior dogs, although an application and home visit are still required.

COOKIE – Has been adopted!

Cookie is a 15 year old toy poodle who came into our care at Christmas time after her mom passed away.

The family did not want Cookie and the nephews threatened to throw her off the bridge – NASTY!

A close friend of the owner brought her to our rescue, and she went into foster care.

Great news – the foster family has decided to give Cookie her forever retirement home!! 

We thank all the big hearted people out there willing to give the senior animals a second chance.
