Dogs of the Week: Chico and Willis!

As we are nearing the end of November, which just happens to be Adopt-a-Senior-Dog month, this week's Dogs of the Week are two of our resident seniors - Chico and Willis!

Chico is a 14-year-old, male Chihuahua.  His foster mom reports that he is super sweet and super friendly, though could be characterized as a bit of a cat chaser (but we won't hold that against him).  It is, however, all curiousity, and this guy does not have an aggressive bone in his 8 pound body, so this could easily be corrected with some positive reinforcement.  Cats are our friends, Chico!  He enjoys the company of other dogs, but would prefer a home without small children due to his tiny stature and his advanced age.  Do not let the numbers fool you - Chico is a little spitfire and can keep up with the resident youngins'!  He loves to be with his humans - either following them around or sleeping on an available lap - and gives some of the best cuddles in town.  If you are looking for a tiny heartbreaker in your life, look no further than Chico! 

Chico is being fostered in Ottawa.

Willis is a senior (we don't know an exact age but we'd wager he is 10+), male Rat Terrier mix.  Willis has a pretty sad story to tell, we're afraid.  He was found on the side of the road in Kentucky where he had collapsed from dehydration.  He was emaciated and in pretty rough shape all around, but fortunately an angel was watching over sweet Willis and he was guided into loving arms.  Now an official Canadian citizen, Willis prides himself on his speedy recovery and his ongoing trust and love for humans.  Not every dog could bounce back from the condition that Willis was in, and that just shows how much spunk and life this pooch has left in him.  Rat Terriers are a hearty breed that has an above average life span, and Willis is definitely "breed standard" in that respect!  Though he is deaf and that makes him "special needs" all Willis really needs is a forever family to love him, protect him and give him all the cuddles and kisses he deserves. 

Willis is being fostered in Uxbridge.
