May 15, 2017 – Nigel is gone to his forever home.

May 5, 2017  – Nigel loves his walks, no matter what the weather!!  He really didn’t seem to mind walking in the rain, but that’s just how he rolls, super easy going an laid back.

April 25, 2017 – Nigel enjoyed some sunshine this weekend outside on the patio. He is still recuperating from his surgery and had to go back to the Vet yesterday to get some antibiotics. He does sleep a lot.  He is having an easier time eating now that his mouth feels better. He is eating soft food with some kibble that has been moistened. He still has the odd accident in the house, but its getting better.  He gets along very well with his foster brothers. He walks well on the leash, but doesn’t go very fast.  He is very vocal, and will greet you with a very loud chorus of barks and cries when you come home. He does cry a little when you go out, or even when you go to a different part of the house. That should decrease when he gets settled in to his new home.

April 23, 2017 – Nigel had his teeth cleaned.  He only had 13 teeth in his mouth to start with and the vet had to remove 7, so he’s got 6 teeth left.  He was also neutered.  Nigel is back to his foster home for a smooth recovery.

April 18, 2017 – Nigel is taking his time settling into his foster home. Every day, we see a little bit more of his personality. He is a happy, gentle pug that gets along well with his foster brothers. Like any pug, he loves to snuggle up beside you or sit in your lap.  At night, he sleeps in his dog bed on the floor beside the big bed.  He doesn’t see much, but he does hear a little bit. He doesn’t bark but will cry to greet you when you come home.  He is going to need the company of a pug brother or sister, and will definitely need a family that is not gone for extended hours.

April 16, 2017 – Nigel is doing very well and is learning to navigate in his new environment.  Nigel is an easy going boy and loves to cuddle.  Nigel gets along well with other dogs, he’s rather indifferent to them.  For this he would do well with or without a canine companion.

April 11, 2017 – Nigel is an old man, the vet says he would be around 10.  He was found wandering the streets and was never claimed.  Nigel’s eyesight is poor and he’s almost deaf.  He is not neutered and he needs his teeth cleaned. Nigel will be going to the vet on April 18 for a complete check up and to schedule his neutering surgery and dental cleaning.  Nigel is 23lbs. Stay tuned for more on Nigel as we get to know him.

Sophie & Lucy

Age: 5 years old

May 29 2017 – Sophie & Lucy are gone to their forever home.
May 22, 2017 – Sophie & Lucy are doing very well and enjoying life together.  They are soon going to their forever home.
May 11, 2017 – The girls continue to do very well.  They have each other for companionship when we are not home and they do sleep together most of the time. Lucy is very active and competitive for attention and Sophie is very cuddly and loves to be loved. We recently introduced them to a friend’s dog and the girls interacted well, were playful and friendly but, mostly played with each other. We saw Sophie play bow with Lucy but, Lucy wasn’t too interested in direct play, more exploring together.  Sophie & Lucy already know sit and stay commands and they are learning to shake a paw which Sophie has mastered and Lucy still working on it. They love to sleep on the big bed but, we only let them up in the morning a few hours before we get up.  They will be startled by outside noises or the door and start to bark. We find that if we play music while we are out it helps them to relax more and not notice any of the extra noises and start barking.

May 7, 2017 – Lucy & Sophie are doing very well.  They love to play together at times or by themselves.  They are very often sleeping together and love to go outside for walks.  Lucy and Sophie would make the perfect companions to a family with or without kids.  If you are interested in adopting these sweet sisters, please fill our online Adoption Application.

April 25, 2017 – Sophie & Lucy are doing very well.  Never had an accident while with us.  Longest we leave them is 6 hours right now and they are doing well. Both love the harness and know where we keep them so when we get them out of the closet they know it’s time for a walk. Lucy is getting much better at not barking when on a walk and if she does we are quick to give a pull on the lead and say “Lucy, Stop”.  When people want to say hello to Lucy and Sophie on the walk, both are very receptive and love to be loved by kids and adults alike. Sometimes barking at other dogs/cats/squirrels but, not always. Same quick pull on the lead and “Lucy Stop” works well. Sophie is not usually the first to bark outdoors but, she occasionally will follow Lucy. They get 3-4 walks per day. One long one about 30 minutes and the rest are 10-20 minutes around the block. Lucy is faster and pulls a bit while Sophie is getting better at keeping up to her but, at first there was a lot of a difference. Lucy was usually ahead. Both have healthy appetites.  Sometimes, they both leave a few kibbles in the dish. Sophie doesn’t bother with Lucy’s food. We take it off the floor when they are finished and will put it down again later in the day and they finish off the leftovers.  They both enjoy small apple pieces. They love their big bean bag bed with a blanket for naps and at night. They definitely want to be on the big bed…..They wake up at 6AM and start scratching at our bed and peaking over to see if we are awake. We can usually keep them happy with some pats but usually by 6:30 they are not letting us have any sleep until we get up and feed them or walk them. After they are walked and fed in the morning they go right to sleep. They both play solo with a stuffed animal and, occasionally a small tennis ball. They wrestle with each other and also play with a toy together. They will interact with us with the stuffed animal and even fetch the ball about 3 times and that’s it. Sophie & Lucy are a lot more confident and they play more since we are fostering them.  They both now want our attention & affection whereas in the beginning, it was just Sophie. Such as trying to get on our laps while at the computer.  Sophie is very clever to get around her antibiotic tablet but, we are on top of her.   We put it in her food and if she eats around it or spits it out we just put it in the back of her throat and wait until she swallows or make her lick her nose with something she likes. She knows our trick of trying to put it in a piece of cheese or apple and she will just eat around it and spit it out on the floor. Sophie is no longer coughing from her mild bronchitis and is doing very well. She will be finished her antibiotics on April 26. Sophie is slowly losing weight and we continue to work on that.  Both are barking when we arrive home. Our downstairs neighbour says they do bark when we aren’t home but, it’s not for a long time.  They are both cuddlers and love to be in the same room as you or on the couch with you. They love to be picked up and have their tummy rubbed on their backs. Sophie is more of the shadow and Lucy knows where to position herself if you are making food (wedges herself between you and the counter).

April 22, 2017 – Lucy (pink harness) and Sophie are doing well.  They were at the vet this week and Lucy was brought up to date in her vaccination while Sophie is being treated for a mild bronchitis.  She will be vaccinated as soon as she’s all recovered.  Both were microchipped.  These 2 girls are hilarious and are often seen cuddled together or playing with each other.  Sophie’s food intake has been reduced in order to allow her to lose weight to reach a healthier figure.  Stay tuned as this sweet pair will soon be available for adoption.

April 18, 2017 – Lucy & Sophie spent Easter weekend in another foster home while their foster mom was away and it was so nice having them around. Both pugs are very friendly and love to lick your face shortly after meeting you if you bend or sit down to play with them. They will also start to play and wrestle with each other but this only lasts for about five minutes. During the day, Sophie & Lucy spent a good chunk of their time sleeping either beside each other or apart but in the evenings they love to cuddle together with one another on their big pillow. Both pugs love to go for their walks but as Sophie is quite overweight, they walked about 15-20 minutes each time. Sophie is good on her walks but Lucy does pull a little bit but probably because she has more energy than Sophie. Lucy also barks and try to run towards other dogs, joggers or bikers. Sometimes Sophie will do the same but I think it’s just because Lucy starts first. Both dogs enjoyed going in the backyard and running around, even in the rain. Never any accidents in the house. When it comes to feeding time, Sophie usually has no problem eating her kibble but Lucy usually needs encouragement and will often leave food in her dish. And surprisingly Sophie never touches Lucy’s bowl and doesn’t bother with the food. It is recommended not to leave your purse or bags with food easily with their reach as they will rummage through them. Also, any easily accessible garbage cans should be put away when you’re out. These girls are really sweet, friendly & funny. It has been great having them around for the weekend.

April 11, 2017 – Sophie & Lucy are sisters.  They are 5 years old and sadly, their owner had to part from them.  They are both spayed and up to date in their vaccination.  They will go to the vet on April 19 for a complete check up and to be microchipped.  We are looking to have them adopted together once they are available for adoption.

May 30, 2017 – We have decided to send Mindy to a registered all-breed rescue to give her all the best chances to get adopted.  After being with us for almost 2 months, we have received 0 application and we thought it was in Mindy’s best interest to get the exposure and the chance to find her forever home.

May 22, 2017 – Mindy is doing well.  She’s a smart girl who masters the command “sit, “stay” and “lie down”.  Mindy has a bit of separation anxiety and we are working on it every day.  She’s good with other male dogs.  Mindy has lost weight and she’s getting close to her healthy weight.  Mindy is an active dog and she is good with kids (older than 8 as she tends to jump – we are working on breaking this habit).
If you are looking for a loyal companion, please consider adopting Mindy.

May 7, 2017 – Mindy has been assessed this week by a professional dog trainer as she was constantly humping the resident kid and dog.  Her foster family is working with her to stop that behaviour and let her understand that she is not the boss.  Mindy has a sweet disposition and would thrive in a family with kids over 10 and if there is another dog, it would be best if it was a male.  Mindy loves going outside for walks and she’s starting to show a nice waiste, slowly losing the extra lbs she came in with.  If you are interested in adopting Mindy, please fill out our online Adoption Application.

April 25, 2017 – Mindy loves walks…will even jog if you so desire, she does pull on lead and likes to go fast. Mindy is very excited for meals but she will wait for a command to approach her dish.  We are working on sit stay…..she is better at the stay than the sit…  Mindy would love to be in a home that lets her on the big bed; at the moment, she sleeps beside the big bed on her own bed and her foster sister on the other side in her own bed.   Mindy does not play, but she loves to cuddle and have human attention.  Mindy is less fearful of people & objects and more reactive to outside sounds such as car doors slamming, more barking.  When Mindy is happy, she’s wagging her little tail; it is actually her whole hind end that wiggles. It’s cute and hilarious.

April 22, 2017 – Mindy had her teeth cleaned and she had a big lump removed from her right side on April 18.  She’s recovering with her cone collar and will soon be available for adoption.  Mindy is 27.5lbs and is still in the process of losing weight.  Mindy is good with other dogs and completely housetrained.











April 1, 2017 – Mindy came in today.  She was surrendered by her owner because of allergies in the family.  Mindy is born on June 30, 2008.  She is spayed and up to date in her vaccination.  She will be visiting the vet this week for a complete check up and she will be at the Spring Paw Thaw tomorrow, April 2, at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre from 12PM to 3PM.  Come and meet this beautiful girl.  Mindy is a Pug/Min Pin.

March 28, 2017 – Sushi had 2 teeth removed yesterday and the rest were cleaned, polished and are in very good condition.  Fortunately, she didn’t lose her cute front bottom teeth that gives her that irresistible smile.  Come and meet this beautiful girl this Sunday April 2 at the Spring Paw Thaw at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre in Ottawa from 12PM to 3:30PM.
March 27, 2017 – Sushi gets along well with other dogs & children. She hasn’t been tested with a cat yet.
Sushi’s eager to go for walks, loves car rides, and belly rubs.  She conducts all of her business outside swiftly.
Sushi’s an excellent cuddler and enjoys relaxing on the couch after you lift her.  She prefers to be by your side and to be a part of the action. Sushi’s so playful that her age could easily fool you! She loves toys almost as much as her people.  Sushi’s very adaptable and settled in to her foster environment quickly, offering kisses early on.  Although Sushi wasn’t initially convinced that dog food was for her, she’s come to terms with it, and happily eats her meals. She eats one kibble at a time like a dainty lady.  Sushi takes her eye medicines like a champ, without protest.  Sushi appears to have a cultured French background, as she responds to “assis”, and notices others speaking French while on walks.  Sushi is getting her teeth cleaned today and she will be available for adoption shortly after.  Come and meet this beautiful girl at the Spring Paw Thaw this Sunday, April 2, at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre from 12:00PM to 3:30PM

March 19, 2017 – Sushi has been surrendered by her owner as she had chronic urinary tract infection, ear infection and dry eyes (she has pigmentation in her eyes so her eyesight is not 100%). Sushi requires drops in her eyes 3 times a day and she is on a special veterinary formula for her UTI (Urinary SO)  Sushi is a  very sweet 9 years old girl.  Sushi is spayed and she’s 19lbs.  Her ideal weight is around 16lbs so we will work on reducing her food intake and put her on a regular daily walks routine.  More info on Sushi as we get to know her better.

March 26, 2017 – Plum is gone to her forever home.

March 14, 2017 – Plum is a very sweet little girl.  She’s 21lbs and she loves to go for walks.  Plum is housetrained and will ask to go outside when she needs it.  Please come and meet Plum on Saturday March 18, 2017 at WAG Pet Café & Lounge on Bank Street in Ottawa from 11AM to 3PM.  Plum gets along well with other dogs.

March 6, 2017 – What a change with this pretty girl since her bladder stone was removed.  With every day that passes she is improving and can hold herself, for a few hours, prior to going out to urinate.  Plum is housetrained and will let you know when she has to go out by going to the door and whining.  Her foster parents have her on a schedule whereas she goes out every couple of hours in order to avoid any accidents in the house.  As time goes on she will be able to hold herself longer and longer.  Plum walks well on a leash and enjoys going for walks.  She will be the perfect walking companion for someone who enjoys daily walks.  She has no interest in toys, just you.   Now that she is feeling much better, she is a very happy and playful gal as confirmed by her wagging tail. She loves attention and will sit next to you encouraging you to pet her and maybe give her a belly rub.  She gets along with most dogs but wants to be the queen bee of the house. She would be happy as the only pet or in a home where there is a submissive or passive dog.  Plum is scheduled to have dental surgery on Tuesday,  March 7.  Once this procedure is done she will be able to enjoy eating.  At this time she is picky about what she eats.  Plum is not a fan of wet food or soft kibble.  We have been encouraging her to eat by pouring beef broth of her kibble.  When giving her anything by hand, place in the palm of your hand to give it to her.  Due to her excitement she will accidently nip you when getting food from your fingers. Because of this behaviour, a home with kids over 8 is recommended. Should you wish to adopt this precious girl, make room in your bed, as she will lay next to you all night long.

February 28, 2017 – Plum came in last week.  She is a pug X.  The vet said she would probably be around 8 years old.  She was found stray in the Kingston region.  Plus came to UMWPR with a HUGE bladder stone that was removed on Thursday February 23;  she was also spayed on that day and had her hind legs dew claws removed at the same time.  Plum is a very sweet girl who gets along very well with other dogs.  Plum will need to have her teeth cleaned and many extractions when she goes for her dental procedure in a few weeks.  Stay tuned for more o this sweet girl and come and meet her at Pet Valu – Westgate Mall in Ottawa this Saturday March 4 from 11 to 3pm.

April 25, 2017 – Bear is having a fantastic week.  Twice in the last 2 days he has gone to the door to tell us he needs to go out and then has a pee and poo when we go out. So proud of him. There have been no more accidents in the home since the trainer came. We are still wearing the pee pad but he is definitely getting the hang of this. Outside, Bear poops & pees on every single walk and enjoys lots of praise when he does so. 4 times this past week, we have met dogs and he has learned to greet properly and stay calm. Still an issue if he sees a big dog. And he can spot one nearly 2 blocks away but we just walk from the situation as directed by the trainer and he calms down. Bear is improving on the leash and had our “door routine nearly down pat.” It definitely doesn’t take him as long to get him to a calm state before we leave the home. He still requires a fair amount of leash corrections but has started looking to the human for direction more. He’s very overwhelmed on walks still and therefore needs shorter walks that are varied. As far as meal times go, Bear waits for the resident pug to finish eating her bowl before he receives his. He actually instinctually “sits pretty” the whole time waiting. Then he scarfs it in pretty fast.

Bear is crate trained and sleeps all curled up in his bed. He does love to snuggle with the resident pug and people. He comes up on the big bed each night for a snuggle before it’s sleep time. We have also let him snuggle with us on a nap or two and he especially loves that. Just like a pug he loves to be next to his humans at all times. Now that Bear has more boundaries into the house, he is often found chewing hard bones in his own, especially if he can find a sunny spot on the carpet to curl into. He lives to get the zoomies with the resident and they will chase each other around the tables. He loves a good game of indoor fetch and would probably love a fenced yard to do the same outside. Bear has very strong teeth and absolutely loves a good game of tug of war. He will bring you toys to get the game going. He also loves a good stuffed animal that he can shake and “kill” and throw in the air. Bear play fight/mouth fight and interact a lot with the resident pug and she loves playing with him so we know she’s not upset. Bear is not a fearful dog. He wasn’t a huge fan of the vacuum but doesn’t seem to bark at it anymore just runs back and forth at it sometimes.
He’s also not a big fan of bigger dogs still. But a lot of that comes from his insecurity on walks. We will keep working on this.  Bear loves to be talked to when he snuggles and will bring his paws up and rub them over his face when he’s sacking up to you. We call it his ” Bashful Bear” pose. It’s very sweet.
He is very attached to his resident humans. He loves to stand up on his hind legs when we sit on the floor.  Bear loves to bring toys to us when one of us comes home. He will prance out to the door with a bone like a gift when you come home. We are very pleased with his improvements in a quick time.  He is learning the rules don’t change and consistency is key.   Bear will need to go to a home where people will agree to continue with his training, he’s a smart boy and thrive with rules and boundaries.
April 22, 2017 – Bear is such a sweet by, he loves to cuddle and play and wrestle with the resident pug.  Bear is looking for a forever home with NO cats and NO big dogs.  Bear would be your ideal jogging/hiking companion.  If you are interested in adopting Bear and you are not gone all day and have no cats or big dogs, please submit your Adoption Application.
April 16, 2017 – Bear is adjusting to the hierarchy in our home. He for the first time this morning didn’t try to go for Lucy’s bowl at breakfast. He just sat patiently waiting for his bowl when she is finished.
He is learning he needs permission for everything and often decides a nice quiet spot in the sun with a good bone is a much better way to spend his time.
We have been crating him during the day if not home. And he has actually seemed to prefer this. As does Lucy I think. He continues to sleep in the crate at night. So we make sure he gets lots of play time in between that.  Bear remains a huge snuggle bug and is especially in love with men.

March 29, 2017 – Bear is doing fantastic!  He is fully house trained. He loves his routine and is very smart.  He is learning to heel on the leash and is far more calm now. He is a very happy dog now. We have noticed such an incredible change with him. He is so trusting and playful. He and the resident pug Lucy snuggle together and play for long stretches of time with all the toys. He is good with small dogs, but barks at large dogs. He is good with kids and loves attention. He loves being told he is a good boy and responds very well to positive reinforcement.  He would make a great addition to any home that is willing to keep him in regular routine and give him lots of play time and attention.

March 27, 2017 – Bear continues to make progress in the housetraining dept.  He’s a very sweet boy who just wants to be loved.  We are pretty sure that Bear has some Jack Russell Terrier in him…..he loves to jumps and jumps in the air and on the kitchen table if he has the chance.  Bear will be at the upcoming April 2 Spring Paw Thaw at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre.  Come and meet this sweet boy.

March 14, 2017 – Bear is a sweet little boy.  He is coming to all our Adoption Awareness Event and is quite popular but still looking for his forever home.  If you are active and would like a sweet little cuddler too, Bear is for you.  Bear is not 100% housetrained but we are working on this and he’s making progress every day.

March 4, 2017 – Bear was at our Adoption Awareness Day yesterday and he did very well.  He gets along very well with other dogs and is an active little boy.  Bear is now ready to be adopted.  He is doing very well in the housetraining dept  but will need someone who will continue to work with him to make him totally housetrained.

February 28, 2017 – Bear loves to snuggle and will jump up on your lap in a flash.  He is getting along well with his foster brothers. He loves to play with stuffed & squeaky toys, growls at them and shakes them. He engages with his younger foster brother and last night they where even doing zoomies in the living room!  He gobbled up his kibble last night in true pug form.  After dinner he settled into his crate for the evening. I leave the door open during the day and he will often go in there to have a nap. He slept in there no problem last night.  He needs some work walking on a leash and with his house training but he will slowly get better and better every day.

February 25, 2017 – Bear is a sweet Chug (Chihuahua/pug).  He’s 1 year old and was surrender by his owner who didn’t have time to train him.  Bear is not neutered and not up to date in his vaccination.  He is going to the vet this week to get neutered and get up to date in his vaccination and microchipped.

March 14, 2017 – Dante is gone to his forever home in Chatham…(:

February 28, 2017 – Dante enjoys his walks, if the weather cooperates, we go for 7km a day.  We introduced him to bigger dogs, he wanted to play but they weren’t interested.  He accepted it well and was happy to run alongside them.  Dante is now eating 1/2 cup twice a day.  Dante has met children, he got excited, jumped up and settled quickly when they bent down to greet him.  Dante is a very happy boy who LOVES to walk, play with family members and loves to cuddle.  His recall is pretty good, we have tried off leash secure parks and he stays fairly close, within sigh and responds well when called.  If you are interested in adopting Dante, please submit your Adoption Application form.  We are looking for an active family who will have time to go for long walks with him every day.

February 19, 2017
– Dante has settled into his foster home extremely well. He is satisfied with his reduced food portion. When offered a treat, he takes it from your hand very gently. He shows no food aggression. He pulls when walking on a leash and walks very quickly. He enjoys several walks a day and loves to play in the snow.  He loves to play with his toys. He like to play ball with his humans and play with his Kong if it has a kibble in it.  Dante loves to lay on the floor especially the rug by the door where it is sunny. He loves to cuddle with his humans on the furniture. He sleeps in bed with our 13 year old quite contently.  When left home alone he has not been destructive.
When greeting new people, he is excited and jumps up but calms down and sometimes brings them a toy and wants to play.  Dante is excited when meeting dogs but shows no aggression.  He does not bark excessively. When we figure out what he is trying to communicate, he is satisfied and stops. He barks at other dogs if they bark first and sometimes barks at people on our walks. He is housebroken. We take him out every 2-3 hours. He tolerates grooming well. Overall, he is an absolute delight and has fit in very well.  Dante would do well with an active family who will take him for long walks 2-3 times a day and take the time to play with him.  He needs to be stimulated and kept active.  Dante would be well suited with a family with kids 8+ as he’s strong and would knock down the smaller kids.

February 11, 2017 – Dante is 4 years old.  He is a Pug X French Bulldog.  He is neutered and is about 45 lbs.  Dante was surrendered by his owner as he was getting jealous of the newborn baby so a home with kids over 8 would be ideal.  Dante will be going to the vet in the coming week for a complete check and to be brought up to date in his vaccination.  Stay tuned for more on Dante as we get to know him.
