Hello, this is Tigger! He is a Jack/Maltese mix, 11 years old approximately 12-14 lbs. This little guy had both his companions pass on. He is very friendly, loves to cuddle, go for walks and car rides! He loves company but is okay left alone for a little bit. The last few years, Tigger’s owners were not able to care for him well. Because of dementia and other factors, they put a pee band on Tigger most of the time and kept him inside. Unfortunately, now he has a habit of lifting his leg while inside. He has been in foster care and needs someone who would be willing to help retrain little Tigger. It will take patience and love, but the rewards are immense! He presently is recovering from dental surgery in NS; otherwise, is up to date and ready to go! He is looking for his new forever home.

GYPSY is a handsome sable coloured 8-year-old, male neutered Husky cross weighing 74.5lb has microchip on flap of ear and is up to date with all shots.

Health and Diet

Gypsy is in good health with no issues present at his health check other than he may have minor hip discomfort. Gypsy is currently on Iams youth, large breed food and gets about 1 ¾ cups per day. He loves home made granola bars as a treat and also shelled peanuts every now and then.

Behaviour and Temperament

Gypsy does very well with other dogs, cats, people and children. He is a very laid back and relaxed fella but shows some signs of being skittish at times. He is house trained but not pee pad trained. He is extremely good when left alone. He is going to need a yard to run in and daily walks. He is not sensitive to loud noises nor does he have a strong prey drive. He knows basic commands like sit, down, stay etc. He is always looking for attention from people and just wants to be loved.

Preferences and Routines

Any treat is a good treat, but he likes homemade peanut butter granola bars and the occasional peanut. He loves toys but his most favorite are his rope and kong toy. Gypsy prefers to be outside when he can be and sleeps inside. Gypsy walks ok on a leash but needs practice and loves car rides. He was well behaved at the vets and the groomers but wasn’t fussy about the hairdryer.

General Notes

Gypsy prefers to be outside, likely due to the fact that he spent a great deal of time in a run with his friend Caleb but will come in when called. If he is inside too long, he will begin to pace. He is a very friendly, well behaved dog and hardly barks. He needs to work on his recall. He loves to get attention from his people and loves playing in water. He is a very smart dog and picks up routines easily. Gypsy would do well in a home with another dog or cats as companions and would need a yard to run in, along with daily exercise.

BLUE is a 10 year old Heeler mix, approximately 40 lbs, spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She appears to be in excellent health but we will be arranging a wellness check to confirm everything is in working order. Blue has moved around a lot in the last few months while her owner was recuperating. As a result, she can be tentative with new people and situations and will need a period of adjustment. She really is a sweet natured well behaved girl. She’ll eventually come up to you and give your hand a nudge to pet her. She’ll even roll over for a belly rub. She just wants to check out strangers first. 

Once properly introduced to other dogs, sheBlue is fine; she’ll even walk alongside them with no issues. She’s never been around cats and she’ll bark at the squirrels but she doesn’t have a strong prey drive. She never had young children in her life until recently. The young child would not leave her alone and the family felt this was not fair to Blue and returned her. She’s fine when they run around, make noise and don’t bother her. 

Blue is very intelligent and picks up on things quickly. She responds well to commands. She can “talk” to you to let you know when she wants to be fed. She likes to be around her owners but is not intrusive about it.  She loves to follow her people around and enjoys being outside or going for long walks. She likes playing tug and can be noisy about it but it’s all in fun. She’ll sleep when left alone and is reactive to fireworks and thunder.  Blue would do best in a quiet home with no young children or other pets.  A home with a back yard and adults or older children who can exercise her a couple of times a day would be ideal. She responds well to commands and wants to please. 


Blue is currently located in the Guelph, Ontario Pawd. Transportation can be arranged.  If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please call our toll free number at 1-888-336-4226 or send an email to Joyce at
