Foster update - January 17, 2011

Wondering what dogs are new to rescue and who has recently found their forever home? This weekly update is your key to keeping track of LOYAL's adoptable dogs!


Bella is a 9-month-old female Boston Terrier / French Bulldog mix who came to us recently along with her brother Boris (see below) from an Ontario shelter. Bella is a shy girl who has not have much socialization in her life, unfortunately, but she is coming out of her shell quickly and exploring her new surroundings. She will need continued work on building her confidence and exposing her to new, safe situations in her forever home.

Boris is a 9-month-old male Boston Terrier / French Bulldog mix who is the brother to Bella (above). Boris came from the same Ontario shelter as his sister, and much like her he has had little training or socialization and needs some confidence building. Both dogs are good with other dogs and are house-trained. Cats and kids are unknown, but children under 10 will not be considered for safety reasons.

Mina is an 18-month-old female Terrier mix who arrived last weekend from a Kentucky high kill shelter where she found herself on the urgent rescue list. Mina is a sweet, friendly girl who is good with other dogs, cats and kids. A fenced yard is needed for Mina as she is still a flight risk. Mina loves to chew on dog toys and nap on your bed with you; a very sweet lady!

Pickles is a 2-year-old male Pekingese who arrived just this weekend from a Kentucky high kill shelter. He was surrendered by his owners for "aggression", which is the most ridiculous thing we've heard because he's been a dream in his foster home - house trained, sleeps on the bed at night, gets along with dogs and cats, and likes strangers! What aggression?! Pickles is a sweet, funny little guy who loves to be cuddled, but who is equally happy to snooze on a nearby dog bed or next to you on the couch. He is low-maintenance (aside from daily brushing, please!) and well-behaved. Oh, and did we mention ADORABLE??

Stevie Wonder is an 8-week-old male special needs Miniature Pinscher. See, Stevie had an eye infection that was not treated early on in his life and as a consequence he has gone blind. Stevie is a typical puppy - friendly and affectionate - but he will require a special home that will know how to handle a blind dog and provide a loving, safe and consistent home to him. He will need to visit an eye specialist before adoption, and all questions regarding his needs can be directed to his foster mom through his profile on Petfinder.


Annie was lucky enough to find her forever home this week!
