DORA

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

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.
