BOBBIE

Age: 5 years old
Adoption Fees: $400

December 5, 2017 – Bobbie went to the vet yesterday for a complete check up.  This sweet girl is 20lbs.  She needs to have her soft palate shorten and nostrils enlarged as she’s breathing very heavily.  She will get spayed at the same time.  The surgeries are scheduled for December 19.

December 4, 2017 – Bobbie is doing really, really well. She has been a very easy dog to transition to our home and follow a routine. Sometimes, when she gets really excited she has a tough time breathing it can get pretty bad. Overall she looks healthy, clean ears, nose, nicely clipped nails. Bobbie is a solid girl and will definitely benefit from weight loss. She has also had several reverse sneezing episodes when she gets excited.  Bobbie is house trained. She has not made any messes and does a great job doing her business outside. It does not appear that Bobbie has had much experience walking on leash. She doesn’t pull and is quite polite but spends a fair amount of time circling around us and needs some direction. She really enjoys walks and has a good amount of energy.  So far she eats well. She gets 1/4 cup of kibble with some wet food as a topper. She sometimes doesn’t completely finish it. However she is food obsessed and it appears she was fed table food. She has been known to beg, but is quickly learning that isn’t the rules in the foster home. Bobbie is the easiest girl to settle down at night. She quickly found her new bed all by herself last night and was asleep in no time. She slept all night and had to be woken up for breakfast this morning. Bobbie loves stuffed animals and likes to carry them around in her mouth and toss them in the air. She of course really likes to follow the humans around the house and goes where the resident pugs go too!  So far the only fear we have noted is she is not a fan of going down our indoor stairs. She will just sit at the top. So we have been carrying her. So stairs are new. We will work on them when she is ready. Socially she plays really well with the resident pugs. She is quite the curious girl and likes to check everything out in the house and on walks. Bobbie has major head tilts. Ask her a question or make some noise and she will show you all her head tilts. It is very cute.  Bobbie is the Kissing Monster! She loves to show her affection for you.  She really is just a sweet, sweet girl.

December 3, 2017 – Bobbie came to us yesterday.  She was retrieve from a hoarding situation.  Bobbie is a nice girl and she gets along well with other dogs.  Bobbie will be going to the vet this week for a complete check and to have her spaying surgery scheduled.  Stay tuned for more on this sweet girl as we get to know her more.

ROSIE

Age: 5 years old
Adoption Fees: $400

December 11, 2017 – Rosie’s vet visit went well!- she had a few teeth extractions along with a cleaning, micro chipping and a pedicure.  Rosie has had a few accidents in the house since her arrival. She is doing much better walking on a leash. She will still stop midway and not walk and have to bribe her with a treat or food to continue on our way. She still is not a big fan of doing her business while walking and prefers to do so in our backyard. Rosie eats well and quick! Rosie will lay beside us on our couch and not even budge when we eat something beside her.  Rosie is definitely a cuddler!- she loves nothing more than to be close or on you when your sitting on a couch or chair. Rosie likes her toys and she likes small tennis balls. She also has an obsession with stealing socks. She won’t chew them, but will take them and place them in random spots.  The only fears we’ve seen are big vehicles and she doesn’t like to be left alone in a room. She also is uncomfortable when someone hovers over her. She’s a follower of myself ( her foster mummy) particularly and will follow me everywhere in every room. If she cant see me, she will wimper until I am in view. She has learnt pretty quick not to be in our dining room when we are eating or in our kitchen when preparing food. She happily sits in the doorway watching us.  Rosie the nosy pug is a very sweet cuddly dog!

December 5, 2017 – Rosie is a very sweet girl, she hasn’t had 1 accident in the house since she came in.  It doesn’t seem that  she has been walked on a leash often. She waves all over the place and is startled by big vehicles. She even thought she should stop mid-way in a field during our walk last night and wouldn’t budge ! She also doesn’t like walking in tall grass.  Rosie eats well with no aggression. You can put your hand in her bowl with her consuming food. She does however eat very quickly.  Rosie loves to be on the couch and often on us under a blanket when catching up on sleep. She was quite restless last night and ventured from bed to bed all through the night. Rosie likes her toys. She doesn’t seem to know what to do with a ball though. She likes it when we initiate play. From what we have observed with Rosie so far, the only fear we’ve seen are big vehicles and doesn’t like to be left alone in a room. She also is uncomfortable when someone hovers over her. She’s a follower and will follow us everywhere in every room. We are teaching her that personal space is important when her human friends prepare and eat dinner so she doesn’t stepped on.  Rosie is a quick learner and we are confident that she will have no problem learning other new things introduced to her.  We should also mention that when we were at the vets yesterday, there was an office pet cat. She really seemed unsure of what that furry thing with the long tail was!  We have nicknamed her Rosie the nosy dog!- she likes to take socks! she won’t chew them, but will take them and move them around our house if given the opportunity. She also likes to crawl on her belly and stretch her back legs and pull herself all over the carpet. When she’s in a vehicle, she is very eager to see what her surroundings are. Including looking at other people while driving by or at red lights. To sum things up, Rosie is a sweetheart!

 December 4, 2017 – Rosie went to the vet today for a complete check up.  Rosie is up to date in her vaccination. She needs to have her teeth cleaned and this procedure has been scheduled for December 7.  Rosie is 19lbs.

December 3, 2017 – Rosie was surrendered by her owner.  She’s 5 years old and she’s spayed.  Rosie is good with other dogs and she will be going to the vet this week for a complete check up.  Stay tuned for more on this beautiful girl as we get to know her more.

LUCKY

Age: 11 years old
Adoption Fees: $300

December 11, 2017 – Lucky had his teeth cleaned today and had 6 extracted (he was already missing 8). He also had a small growth removed from his left eyelid. He has stitches and needs to wear a cone to keep him from scratching at it while it heals.
Lucky is a happy boy that loves life. He loves to go for walks and ride in the car. He sleeps in his crate at night. He scratches at the patio door when he wants to go outside. He gets along well with the resident pugs but doesn’t really play with any toys.  He is a big cuddle bug and loves to give kisses.

December 7, 2017 – Lucky is a very happy boy, and is almost always smiling. He is a pretty active for his age.  He gets along well with the resident pugs and loves to go for walks with them to check out the neighborhood.  Lucky doesn’t really play with toys. Like most pugs he loves to snuggle and get belly rubs, and will follow you from room to room. (especially if you are going to the kitchen!) Lucky does his business out side and will go and stand at the patio door to go out. He does occasionally mark inside so he is wearing a nice belly band in the house. Lucky sleeps in his crate at night.

December 5, 2017 – Lucky went to the vet yesterday for a complete check up.  This handsome boy has a urinary track infection so he is now on antibiotics.  Lucky needs his teeth cleaned and he has a little cyst on his lower right eyelid.  Lucky’s dental procedure is scheduled for December 11.  Lucky is 21lbs.  His vaccination has been postponed until his UTI is healed.

December 3, 2017 – Lucky was surrendered by his owner.  He will be 11 in January.  Lucky is spayed and he gets along week with other dogs.  Lucky will be going to the vet in the coming week for a complete check up.  Stay tuned for more on this sweet boy as we get to know his more.

DORA

Age: 6 1/2 years old
Adoption Fees: $300

December 4, 2017 – Today we put up our Christmas tree. Dora was an enthusiastic bystander . We had some friends over with young children to help decorate. Dora cuddled them on the couch and supervised the festivities.

December 2, 2017 – Dora is doing well. We gave her a bath just now and changed her dressing. Dora’s got a bed full of toys and a blanket she loves to tussle with. I love how she comes to greet me at the door when I come home.

November 28, 2017 – Dora had an excellent first night in her new foster home. She was excited to explore the Centretown neighbourhood with all its sounds and smells, so we took her on a walk to Dundonald park and back before the snow fell. Then we came home and she finished her dinner with gusto.  We had friends with small children (4 and 6) over for dinner and she was curious and gentle with them, despite their shrieking and shenanigans. Dora loved playing with squeaky toys and would take them under the kitchen table where she could play uninterrupted. Her favourite thing is a good belly scratch. She’ll roll over and invite you to scratch her belly for full minutes at a time, urging you on with her paws in the air.  After dinner and company left, we took her out for a walk in the snow before bed. She examined every nook and cranny of her new neighbourhood very closely. She liked to lick the freshly fallen snow. Each noise was something to stop, pause and explore.  We gave her her pill before bed with a little bit of cheese as instructed and she cuddled up in our bed, sleeping on her back and breathing peacefully: a happy first night.

November 27, 2017 – Dora had her teeth cleaned and she lost only 1.  Dora had a broken nail that got infected so she has been put on antibiotics and will wear a bandage (that will have to be changed every 2 days) until it heals.  Dora loves to go for walks and enjoy playing with her stuffed animals.  Dora would probably be better as an only dog as she doesn’t like to share her toys or bed.  If you are interested in adopting Dora, please submit your adoption application.

November 21, 2017 – Dora went to the vet today for a complete check up and blood work.  We will get the results in a few days.  Dora is 27.8lbs, she needs to lose about 8lbs to be at a healthy weight.  Dora is getting her teeth cleaning this Friday and she will be ready to attend her first Adoption Awareness Event this Sunday at Pet Valu @250 Greenbank Road in Ottawa from 11AM to 3PM.

November 19, 2017 – Dora came in yesterday.  She was surrendered by her owner.  Dora is born on March 11, 2011 so she is 6 1/2 years old.  Dora is spayed and up to date in her vaccination.  She’s on Prednisone for skin issues .  Dora is going to the vet this Tuesday for a complete check up and blood work.  Dora is overweight and we will be working on slimming her down in the coming weeks.  Come and meet Dora this Sunday, November 26 at Pet Valu at 250 Greenbank Road on Nepean from 11Am to 3PM.

GUS

Age: 11 months
Adoption Fees: $575

December 1, 2017 – Gus is gone to his forever home today, he will share his life with a pug brother.

November 16, 2017 – Gus will be a great pug for a lucky family. He is smart. He is young and eager to learn and please you when you are consistent with direction, boundaries & rules. He’s quirky. He likes to take all his toys out of the toy box and then plays with the box. He is walking so well with Little Ray, the pug and, they still play together like tug of war with a toy or chase each other. He loves to be near you and loves to chew the Himalayan chew or his antler knob right at/on your feet and beside Ray. Gus would be great with a family that will keep him active and entertained and with another bigger playful dog to show him the ropes.  Gus is 24.7lbs
Note that Gus is still a puppy and would benefit and thrive in obedience training.  Gus is NOT suitable for life in an apartment and we won’t consider applications where applicants are gone all day.  Kids over 10 as he could jump and make younger ones fall.

November 13, 2017 – Due to the lack of time to take care of him, Gus was surrendered to us.  This handsome lad is going to be 1 on December 16.  He is neutered and up to date in his vaccination.  Gus will be going to the vet tomorrow for a complete check and to be microchipped.  Gus is a very energetic dog who gets along well with other dogs.  He loves to play with them and play tug of war.  Stay tuned for more on this sweet boy.

TURBO

Age: 9 1/2 months
Adoption Fees: $575

November 28, 2017 – Turbo has healed really nicely from being neutered. He is got his hind dew claw sutures removed and he is really excited about getting his cone removed. Turbo has never lifted a leg once and has never pooped in the house. He enjoys being praises for doing his business outside. He is very much a people pleaser. Turbo is a little insecure on walks. He is scared of your feet sometimes but he also heels pretty well with some correction. He is very smart. He loves going for walks and would probably really benefit from an active family. I am sure he would love to go for runs. Turbo is very polite when it comes to dinner time. He knows his food hits the floor last in our pack and he waits so patiently. He eats pretty quickly. He showed some interest in one of our resident pug’ s bowl and she let him know thats not allowed and he had never bothered again. He is also very gentle when given a treat it’s very sweet. He knows he must sit in his bed during our meal time. Turbo loves hard bones to chew on and chases balls. He loves stuffed animals too but he mostly just rips then apart. He also has chewed a blanket so that kind of stuff has to be kept away. He gets the zoomies just like the resident pugs.  Turbo will bark at loud noises but will stop when told. He doesn’t seem to mind the vacuum. He is pretty social with our dogs. I’m not sure if it’s just because he has been wearing a cone or not but he often shakes (like a dog does when he’s wet) and when he does his tail is like a whip. For that reason he would have to be watched when near small children. Turbo is one of the sweetest boys we have met. He loves attention and thrives with it. He follows you everywhere just like the resident pugs do. He always has to be touching you when laying on couch or floor. He is very sensitive.

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

November 5, 2017 – Poppy is gone to her forever home.  She will share her life with a 4 month old pug female and a 11 yr old female pug + she will spend her winters in Florida.

October 30, 2017 – Poppy is in a new foster family, she is now being fostered with Little Ray.  Both get along very well together.  Poppy can be a little timid at first but she quickly bond with the person who takes care of her.  Poppy is 13lbs.  Poppy would be happy in a home with another dog or with someone home all day.  She does love to run and play tug of war with other dogs.

 

POGO

Age: 12 1/2 years old
Adoption Fees: $300

December 6, 2017 – Pogo is doing well and is such a pleasure to spend time with.  He is fully transitioned to his new food (Kangaroo & oat), and we are giving it a bit of time to see how he does.  He still has some itching, so licks his front left paw and scoots with his backside at times.  We have stretched his medicated baths out to every week and a half, but are still doing them as they definitely help. Pogo visited Alight at Night with us and was such a hit.  He was so gentle with the children who wanted to pet him and really soaks up the attention.  It definitely got him in the Christmas spirit 🙂

November 26, 2017 – This beautiful boy is still looking for his forever home.  Pogo is a cuddle bug and would make someone very happy.  He’s great with dogs and kids and has a very mellow temperament.  Pogo’s skin is doing very well and he only needs 1 medicated bath a week + continuing his kangaroo + oat diet.

November 21, 2017 – After six weeks, I finally finished my course of antibiotics! My skin is feeling much better and I am down to a bath once a week or so to keep things in check. I have been having a bit of redness and itching to my backside and paws from allergies, so I am trying a new food (kangaroo + oatmeal) to see if that will help with the last of the itching. Overall, my coat is lush and thick now.  Last week, I had my blood work rechecked as I had a few minor abnormalities previously, and everything was perfect now.  I had my dental cleaning yesterday. I had 8 teeth extracted and I already had 18 teeth missing in my wee mouth.  I felt a bit woozy when I first woke up from the anesthesia, but am feeling good now and ready to eat! I don’t have very many teeth left, so my foster mom soaks my food. I do love to eat and have perfected my begging eyes.  My back right leg gets a bit stiff sometimes with this cold weather, but it hasn’t stopped me from enjoying short walks and trotting around the house. I took a road trip to Sudbury last weekend and was told I am an excellent passenger. I am also good at cuddling on the couch (and bed if you let me up!!)  The vet tech cleaned my ears, clipped my nails and inserted a microchip after my surgery, so I am feeling ready to show off to my potential forever family.

November 20,  2017 – Pogo is doing very well.  His fur is getting better every day.  Pogo is going to the vet today to get his teeth cleaned and get up to date in his vaccination and microchipped.  This exquisite gentleman will be available for adoption in the coming days.  Pogo is by far, the sweetest soul in the world.

October 30, 2017 – Pogo is such a sweet gentleman, he’s the most easy going pug we’ve seen.  He gets along with every dog and he loves everybody.  Pogo is still on antibiotics until next week then the vet will recheck his skin.  It looks much better than he first came to us.  He is still getting bathed twice a week with medicated shampoo and a gel is being applied to his dry sore spots to make it heal.  Pogo will soon get his teeth cleaned and he will be available for adoption.

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 12 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.

Age: 5 yrs and 11 months
Adoption Fees: $400

September 25, 2017 – Deuce has been adopted by his foster family….(:

September 21, 2017 -Deuce has happily tucked himself into his bed after a long day at the Vet to get his teeth cleaned; he lost 7 teeth and already 3 were missing.  His mouth is now all shiny and he will be undergoing some treatment for yeast infection in his ears.  Deuce has lost 1lb since his last weigh in 11 days ago, coming in at a hefty 31.5lbs, so we are starting to see some of the weight come off slowly but surely. Deuce is a happy playful guy who is certainly bringing much joy to the resident kids & pug.  He love, LOVES his squeaky toys, walks & belly rubs.

September 7, 2017 – Deuce had a great long weekend and took to camping like a champ!  He is a very energetic pug despite the extra pounds he is carrying.  He loves to play with soft toys, hard toys & blankets. Deuce loves cuddles & snuggles; he is great with kids and is coming to an understanding with the resident pug that he does not in fact rule the roost, and has to share the people and toys.  He is taking a few short walks a day and those are going very well.  Deuce is going to the vet tomorrow for a complete check up and to be brought up to date in his vaccination and microchipped.

August 31, 2017 – Deuce arrived today.  He is an owner surrender.  Deuce will be 6 on October 10.  Deuce is neutered.  He is good with other dogs and kids.  Deuce will be going to the vet in the coming week for a complete check up and to be brought up to date in his vaccination and microchipped.  Deuce is very overweight and starting today, will be on limited food intake and slow and regular walks.  Now that the weather is getting cooler, it will be easier on this boy.  Come and meet Deuce this Saturday, September 2 at Pet Valu Glebe (Bank at Strathcona) from 10AM to 4PM.
