March 31, 2018 – Chico is gone to his forever home in Montreal, QC.  He will be lucky to go to work every day with his new mom.

March 24, 2018 – Chico continues to be a very sweet boy and sometimes talks to us when he’s excited. He is more interested in playing now since his teeth have been removed. The past couple days, we have gone out for a little bit and Chico has barked more when we left and when we came home. So definitely showing a bit of signs of separation anxiety. He definitely likes being with other dogs and will snuggle with the resident pugs. Chico would not like to be left at home alone for long periods of time. He loves playing with kids and dogs and he is very gentle. Chico is healing nicely from his dental surgery. His breath is now fresh and he looks much happier. Chico is doing a great job in the house training dept.
He didn’t try to mark when we visited a friend’s house. Chico is very polite when on leash and and enjoys 4 to 6 walks per day. Chico continues to love his raw food. His coat is so shiny & soft. Chico sleeps in the big bed. We don’t think he would do well in a crate. He will bark & cry when he’s separated from us on a different floor by a gate or a door. Chico has free range of the home and he’s not destructive. He continues to grow in showing us his temperament. He’s occasionally testing boundaries (jumped on coffee table looking for food). He is starting to understand zoomies and is chasing one of the resident pugs in a very playful game. With lots of attention, this sweet boy will continue to grow and be more confident.

March 20, 2018 – Chico had 13 teeth removed today and the rest were polished.  Chico is back to his foster family for a smooth recovery.

March 9, 2018 – Chico went to the vet and was brought up to date in his vaccination.  He’s a healthy boy who had a rough life so far.  Chico will soon get his teeth cleaned.

March 7, 2018 – Chico came in last night.  He was surrendered to us as the resident dog didn’t get along with small dogs, he had his ears chewed and was viciously bitten on his back a while ago.  Chico is 5 years old and he is neutered.  Chico had a nice visit at the groomer to get a nice bath and get his nails cut.  Chico is a very sweet & snuggly boy but is finding is voice as he gets more comfortable. He likes to be told he is a good boy and gets along easily with the resident pugs so far. He is most definitely a Daddy’s boy.  Chico will be going to the vet in the coming week for a complete check up.

March 22, 2018 – Leon is gone to his forever home and will share his life with a puggle brother.

March 17, 2018 – Leon is a very sweet boy.  He loves cuddles and the company of other dogs.  Leon is looking for his forever home.  If you think you are the family for this adorable pug X, please submit your Adoption Application.

March 11, 2018 – Leon no longer sleeps in his crate. He’s made a more comfortable sleeping spot on the couch on the main floor on top of a nice warm fuzzy blanket. No accidents anywhere in the morning either! We’ve learned he doesn’t like the car. He gets very anxious. He loves playing outside in the snow with his ball. He’s still eating and drinking very well. We’ve been trying to teach him how to sit and stay. He still needs a lot of practice but he’ll get there! New obsession of the week are belly rubs!

March 4, 2018 – Leon is such a sweet boy! We have noticed a huge change in his behaviour over the last week. He is such a snuggle bug! He still gets nervous around new people but warms up to them pretty quickly. He loves playing with any rubber toy! He does get very possessive over his toys but that is something we are working on. The house training is going well! He’s only had two accidents in the house this week. He loves going for out for walks and is great with his harness. He does very well with other dogs. He does get jealous when another dog gets attention so he will come right up and sit on your lap to make sure you don’t forget about him. He loves snuggling up with our Puggle. He does very well in his crate at night. He sleeps right through the night. We are in the process of teaching him how to sit and stay. Leon is making great progress!  Leon is getting his teeth cleaned on March 14.

February 23, 2018 – Leon is a pug x (we think he is a mixed with a Boston Terrier); he was found stray and never claimed.  He has been neutered, brought up to date in his vaccination & microchipped.  He needs to have his teeth cleaned.  Leon is going to the vet tomorrow for a complete check up.  This sweet boy is 17lbs and he is quite active.  Loves his ball and the company of other dogs.  Stay tuned for more on Leon as we get to know him.

December 30, 2017 – Bobbie is gone to her forever home in the Niagara region.

December 22, 2017
– Bobbie got spayed on Tuesday. She also got her nostrils enlarged & her soft palate shortened to improve her breathing. She spent an overnight at the vets and has been home resting the past couple days. She is on antibiotics and pain medications for a few days and requires several small meals throughout the day to make sure she gets adequate nourishment while not causing any harm to the palate. She has been very sleepy and isn’t a huge fan of wearing the cone for the next two weeks but she is healing well. Bobbie has continued to do all her business outside. As a true pug, Bobbie doesn’t love winter, ice, snow and obviously salt. She now wears Pawz booties and her pretty knitted sweater when going for her walk and that makes her very happy.
She is much better at walking on leash now and she likes walking with her foster sisters. She does not like to lead and will stop and wait for her foster sisters to go ahead. Bobbie is currently eating a soft diet four times a day for the next two weeks and then can resume her previous diet. Bobbie sleeps in a bed on the floor. Though lately in protest of her cone she is falling asleep standing up and eventually lays down. Bobbie would be best suited for a family who is moderately active. She will need to be pushed to increase her activity level but she is not likely going to be interested in going on a run or hike. She would also be best suited with a family with an existing dog or pug as opposed to a solo dog. She likes to snuggle and groom her foster sisters and prefers they lead the walks. Bobbie now does the stairs all the time with no problem.  She is a very friendly girl and gets along with all the dogs we have seen her meet. She is so sweet and gentle. She really is just a calm girl.

December 12, 2017 – Bobby is such a blast. She is a cheerful and funny addition to our foster home. She is almost always happy and really loves to snuggle and play. Bobbie is going for a pre op checkup today for her spay and soft pallet surgery on December 19. She did have some skin breakdown between toes. With regular toe clipping, cleaning and polysporin it has cleared up. Bobbie had only one pee accident. Turns out she is not a fan of winter nor snow, she tricked us into thinking she had went outside and then peed inside. She hasn’t done this since. Such a smart girl. When the weather is nice, she likes walks. When it is cold and windy, she tries to sit in protest. She is learning that walks happen no matter the weather. She is very thankful for her warm knit sweated when we do go out.  She has no problem eating and drinking.  Bobbie sleeps in her own bed on the floor at the foot of our bed. She loves naps. Bobbie loves to run in circles when she is happy. She likes chasing the resident pugs and being chased. Bobbie has done the indoor stairs more and more. She just does them in her own time. And sometimes, she gets carried if she decides to fall asleep at the top of the stairs instead of coming down.  Socially, she has interacted well with other dogs we have met on the street. Bobbie is very affectionate and loves to show you how much she loves you. She also likes to cuddle one of the resident pugs.

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.

December 27, 2017 – Rosie went to her forever home today, she will share her life with 1 young male pug.
December 26, 2017 – Rosie walks very well on a leash now. She gets 3 walks a day. She still isn’t a huge fan of her harness, but is much better than when we first got her. Rosie looks forward to mealtimes which are twice daily she eats quite quickly. Rosie has a great personally!- she loves to play with all her toys, pull her bed out of her crate and there is no shortage of love for socks! She also likes to lay on the carpet and pull her lower half of her body all over the room.  Rosie is very inquisitive! She likes to know what’s going on all the time! She is a follower and will follow most of us all through the house at any time. In terms of travelling. She’s travels well!- she does best on her own seat so she can observe her surroundings. I don’t give her the opportunity to explore. I ensure she has a blanket to sit on and fasten her leash to the seat. Otherwise she would sit on me while driving.
December 19, 2017 – Rosie is in great health and the perfect weight- no issues at all. Rosie is doing much better walking on a leash but still needs a bit of coaxing to get her harness on. While walking, she will bark at people, but is very friendly when they are able to approach and greet her. She loves any form of attention! Rosie looks forward to mealtimes. She sits on command and waits patiently for us to put her food down. We make her wait till we give her the okay to eat.  Rosie sleeps in her crate with a fuzzy blanket. We keep her on our main floor and we don’t hear a peep out of her all night until morning and she can hear people talking. She also likes sleeping on a blanket on the furniture next to someone.  We love finding out new things Rosie likes to play and do each week! We have noticed she is fond of gentle tug of war type play as well as dragging her bed around our living room and she has a great love for thin socks! Rosie isn’t a big fan of big dogs that get in her personal space. She also isn’t too sure about cats from her vet visit a few weeks ago. I will re-introduce her to our neighbours cat this week and see how that goes. She does like gentle, non- hyper dogs. Rosie loves everyone she meets and vise versa! She does very well with our 9 yr old son though. Rosie is full of energy and is wiggly when we pick her up and will attempt to jump down when held. Rosie is very inquisitive! She likes to know what’s going on all the time!

December 17, 2017 – Rosie is doing very well.  She’s good with other dogs and she’s an active girl.  Rosie would do good with another dog or as an only dog with active family.

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.

December 12, 2017 – Dora went to her forever home today…(:

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.

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.

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.

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.

December 24, 2017 – Pogo went to his forever home today.  He will share his life with Samson, the English Bulldog.

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.
