POPPY

Age: 2 1/2 years old
Adoption Fees: $500

October 19, 2017 – Poppy is happy to go into her crate at night  and sleeps well through the night.  She is happy to go for her walk first thing in the morning and is much more comfortable doing her business on a leash in our presence. She walks well but will sometimes lunge at cars suddenly so have to make sure that you have a good hold on her. At times she pulls a lot, we are working on getting her not to pull on the leash. Poppy eats well and is currently being fed with other dogs around and is doing quite well. She is very playful and is learning how to join in with the 2 resident dogs. She likes to play tug of war with and likes to play chase, both being chased and doing the chasing. She LOVES to play fetch with her ball and does not always like to share it. She never tires of the game fetch. She gets a walk first thing in the morning and again at night as well as many trips outside in the yard for fetch and play. She does so much better with a lot of exercise and outside play time during the day.  She likes to be around other dogs and will sleep in a heap with other pugs.  Poppy is becoming more and more cuddly with people too and likes to lick faces. She likes to be petted as well as sit on your lap. She has a bit of separation anxiety and doesn’t like to  be in the crate during the day if she cannot see you, she will make loud barking, yelping noises. We are working on giving her something fun to chew on to occupy her while in the crate during the day and that is helping. She has not peed or pooped in the house for a week and we are praising her greatly when she goes outside in front of us and that has helped tremendously. Overall, she is less anxious and is becoming more and more sweet and settled.  Poppy would do well with someone who could give her a lot of attention, especially in the beginning. She would need someone who would not leave her alone a lot during the day. She would also need a good routine of regular exercise and play.

October 17, 2017 – Poppy has been to the vet and was microchipped.  She’s a very healthy girl.  Poppy is doing very well, she is still a bit nervous and afraid of doors.  She was a star at our last Adoption Awareness Event on Sunday October 15 and got along well with every dog.  Come and meet Poppy this Sunday, October 22 at the Howl.O.Ween Pawty at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre in Ottawa from 12 to 330PM.

October 8, 2017 – Poppy is doing much better with her anxiety today and how she treats the resident dog. He is so tolerant and gentle with her that she has come around. They played a lively game of chase in the yard this morning, each taking a turn doing the chasing.  She is learning that she is not top dog and her and the resident dog are working out who is next. Poppy is feeling more comfortable but doesn’t rest much during the day, she is always on guard it seems and ready to go. Very high energy or maybe not feeling relaxed yet to rest.  She slept well last night and seemed very happy to go in her crate.  She is very happy to be in the kitchen with us as we prepare our Thanksgiving meal. She is less anxious especially when there are people around her.

October 5, 2017 – Poppy was surrendered by her owner as she didn’t have enough time for her.  She is spayed and up to date in her vaccination.  Poppy is a small pug with beautiful big ears.  She will be going to the vet in the coming week for a complete check up and to get microchipped.  Stay tuned for more information on Poppy as we get to discover her personality.

POGO

Age: 13 1/2 years old
Adoption Fees: $300

October 17, 2017 – The vet was pleased with Pogo’s progress in terms of his skin. We will continue his course of antibiotics for another few weeks and reassess.  We will also continue his daily cleaning of his folds – this will be an ongoing maintenance issue. His ear cleaning and medicated baths will be reduced to 1-2 times per week.  While at the vet, they took blood and expressed his anal glands.  Next steps will include dental surgery, trialing an anti-inflammatory for his hind leg, and possibly starting a hypoallergenic diet.  Pogo is taking it all in stride and was quite pleased with himself today.  Come and meet Pogo this Sunday, October 22 at the Howl.O.Ween Pawty at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre in Ottawa from 12 to 330PM.

October 1, 2017 – Pogo has settled well here. I have been soaking his food which he enjoys and his appetite has been good. Only one accident in the house, so I’d say house training is good.  Pogo was at the vet on Tuesday September 26 and we are starting the following regime with a plan to reassess on October 11:
– Twice daily oral antibiotics
– Daily ear drop
-Daily cleaning of folds, toes & groin with antibiotic gel
– Three times weekly medicated bath
– Ear cleaning every two days

Pogo is very friendly and enjoys other pets.  He does like having his crate for a little downtime.

September 24, 2017 – Pogo came in yesterday.  He was surrendered by his owner.  Pogo is 13 1/2 years old and he is neutered.  His skin is in very bad shape with hot spots and scabs all over his body.  Despite his condition, Pogo is a real sweetheart.  He gets along well with other dogs and he’s the sweetest boy.  Upon his arrival, he had a nice bath and we were able to cut his nails without any fuss from Mr. Pogo.  Pogo is going to the vet this coming Tuesday for a complete check up and blood work.  Stay tuned for more on this exquisite furry boy.

BOOMER

Age: 9
Adoption Fees: $300

September 3, 2017 – Boomer is gone to his forever home, he will be sharing his life with a female French Bulldog.
August 21, 2017 – Boomer’s doing great. He’s getting along with the 2 resident pugs and anyone he meets on his walks. He seems to enjoy his brushing and attention. Boomer is on Vanectyl-P for seasonal allergies as he was very itchy –  we hope that we can cut back in a few weeks. Boomer was around children of all ages and he does very well.  Boomer would do good with or without another dog.  He loves the attention and he is a very good balanced boy.
August 11, 2017  – Boomer went to the vets today and received a pretty good report. He has a bit of arthritis in his right front leg. He has small cataracts in both eyes but they are causing no problems with vision. His ears are great, and he used his charm to win over the vet. Boomer gets along well with young children. He is slightly overweight and we’re working on losing 2-3 lbs.
August 8, 2017 – Boomer had a spa day on Sunday and he smell good and his coat is very soft. We walked home and what a fine looking grumble of pugs I had. The resident pugs walking proudly besides Boomer. We walked for about twenty minutes and Boomer did great. When we got home he checked the house out; then it was time to check the outside. Boomer is quite a loveable little boy. He loves attention and to be around you. He eats well and showed no aggression when I played with his dish and face when eating. Boomer is a bit overweight but we will be working on it with limited food intake and regular walks. We went out for an hour yesterday and he did great. When Boomer sleeps he makes a symphony of noises which are quite funny. He loves to sleep on the big bed.
Boomer gets along with the resident pugs very well but is having a bit of a problem adjusting to our cats every now and then. However, he does listen when told to leave them alone so I don’t think it will take much training to take his mind off them.  Boomer is going to the vet this Thursday for a complete check up and to be brought up to date in his vaccination and microchipped.

August 6, 2017 – Boomer was surrendered by his owner.  He’s a sweet boy and he is neutered.  He recently had his teeth cleaned and just needs to be brought up to date in his vaccination and get microchipped.  Boomer needs to shed a few lbs but with a regular walking schedule and controlled food intake, he should be at his healthy weight in no time.

VITTO

Age: 11 years old
Adoption Fees: $300

August 7, 2017 – Vitto has found his forever home with his foster mom…(:

August 1, 2017 – Vitto was at the vet this morning to get his teeth cleaned, he had a few extracted and the rest were polished.  He was also microchipped.  Vitto has very limited eyesight and he is most probably deaf.

July 31, 2017 – Vitto has had a busy week teaching his foster family, and wrapping them around his little paws.  He is responding well to a new quality diet and joint supplements and his mobility has improved already.  He is walking for short periods two or three times a day, and as long as he can feel tension on the lead to tell where he is going he will willingly follow.  Vitto has very limited eyesight or hears nothing, but seems to smell ok, and responds occasionally to vibrations when people walk around.  He does not really acknowledge or interact with the resident pug. He is eating and drinking well.  Would not describe him as cuddly, but when you give him affection he whines and it really seems like he’s trying to tell you something.

July 26, 2017 – Vitto came in today.  He was surrendered by his owner who didn’t have time for him.  Vitto is neutered and up to date in his vaccination.  Vitto is actually being treated for an ear infection and he is having his teeth cleaned on August 1.  Stay tuned for more on this beautiful boy.
