Foster update - September 13, 2010

It's been a slow few weeks in terms of adoptions, but there has been a constant trickle of dogs coming into rescue lately.


The following dogs are new to rescue over the last few weeks:

Andy is a 4-year-old female Shepherd/Lab mix who came to us from the Kentucky Humane Society. She is brand new to rescue, but we know that she is great with dogs, cats and kids. And she's clearly a real character! For more information on Andy, you can follow her day-to-day adventures on her blog at, or you can e-mail her foster mom, Elaine, at

Angel is a 7-year-old female Rat Terrier that was surrendered by her former owner to a shelter in Kentucky before she made her way to her foster home in Toronto. Angel is an active girl that likes other dogs, cats and kids, and would do well in a home that can give her all the love, attention and exercise that she needs. Could you be the lucky family to adopt Angel?

Baby is a sweet 8-year-old female Beagle / Chihuahua mix who came to us from a shelter in Ohio. This sweet little cuddler enjoys the company of other dogs and is quite curious about the cats living with her in her new home. We are not yet sure how she is around children at this time.

Black Matt
Black Matt is a 1-year-old adorable male Terrier mix that came to us from a pound in Louisiana. While he does get along with other dogs, he should not go to a home with cats or children, due to his unknown history. He was very matted when he arrived into rescue, but was all smiles and cuddles as soon as he was more comfortable, and knew that he was in a safe place. Black Matt would do well with an active family, as he is still in his puppy stage.

Misty & Lulu
Misty and Lulu are an adorable 6-year-old pair of female Terrier mixes that should be adopted together, as they are bonded sisters who have always lived together. These sweet-faced girls are very affectionate, and could go to a home with other dogs, cats and kids. They love the outdoors and going for car rides, but we sadly surrendered to rescue by their owner who could no longer care for them.

Scruff McGruff
Scruff is a 6-year-old male Terrier mix that was surrendered back to rescue by his owners because he was not getting along with the new children in the family. All of the chaos and confusion scared him, so he would do well in a home that does not have young children. He is, however, fine with other dogs and with cats. Scruff originally came to us from a Kentucky shelter where he was found abandoned at the dump with a broken tail and full of bb pellets. Poor Scruff! He is now safe and sound in one of our foster homes, and is looking for his real forever home.


The following dogs have recently been lucky enough to find their forever homes with loving families. Lucky them!

- Dixie the Terrier mix
- Jacob the Schnauzer
- Scotch the Beagle
- Puggy & Harley the Chihuahuas
- Precious the Yorkie

Congratulations all on snagging fabulous new families!

  1. To clarify
    re: Black Matt - - the unknown history isn't the issue as far as children go. He is still quite mouthy and will jump up. He gets carried away sometimes. No aggression at all.

    re: Scruffy - - no agression here towards children - simply a flight response - he would not do well in a home with teenaged boys either as they terrify him. We can only assume that they are at the heart of the pellets in his body.
