JAKE is in urgent need of a new home. Jake's foster mum is in love with Jake but, due to family circumstances, Jake needs a new home. She says: "I truly wish we could adopt Jake because we've come to love him very much and it breaks my heart to see him go. If the circumstances were different, we would adopt him. Our 13-year old grandson adores him and Jake adores him. I can't believe no one has stepped forward to adopt this sweet, beautiful, loving boy. What an asset he would be to a family with teenage children and no other pets. He is amazing. He is so easy to love." Now that is a strong recommendation! Jake is a 10-year old Am Staff who weighs in at about 82 pounds of pure love. This beautiful brindle boy has been very well taken care of and loved, receiving vet care throughout his life, being neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations, and having a recent, thorough wellness exam (including x-rays) revealing him to be in excellent health. Jake is a devoted, loyal companion, who wants nothing more than to have a new home of his own. Although he does well when left alone, he has been described as an owner's best friend. He is sweet, loving, and affectionate, and enjoys sleeping in his owner's bed (but will happily settle for the sofa). This low-to-medium energy gentleman loves lounging throughout most of the day and being pet and cuddled. Jake does enjoy short, small walks, and is good on a leash, but doesn't have the extensive exercise requirements as many of our other dogs. He isn't too crazy over toys, although does love to play with a Kong. It is adorable to watch him throw it around and go after it. Aside from occasionally being tentative about getting into a car, Jake is a happy passenger. He also does well at the vet's office, where he is beloved. Jake has been reactive to dogs that have approached him too closely, and he has never been with cats, although he does not appear to have much - if any - prey drive. Jake has never shown any aggression towards children, but due to his size and him not being around children very much or often, he'd be better in an adult-only home or a home with children who are teens or older. In his foster home, he has fallen in love with a teen and even sleeps with him! If you may be able to provide Jake the loving home of which he is so deserving, please contact elderdogfredericton@gmail.com or 1-855-336-4226.

 

Put simply, HARLEY, a 9-year old female boxer, is one of the sweetest, most affectionate dogs for whom we have had the pleasure of caring. She is a dream with people, being excellent with kids of all ages and adults of all kinds. She truly is a sweetheart. With this in mind, it is unsurprising that Harley is prone to separation anxiety. In foster care, she has shown us that her separation anxiety can be worked on and improved upon with positive reinforcement, desensitization, and keeping to a regular schedule. Even still, Harley's ideal home would be in a household where someone is home often - perhaps somewhere that someone is retired, works from home, works part-time, or has humans that have different schedules. Don't let Harley's age fool you - Harley will require regular exercise in her new home, so a fenced in yard or a runner/jogger willing to have an on-leash buddy would make Harley very happy. Although Harley is wonderful with humans, she isn't so good with other animals, so we would require her to be the only pet in her new household. This energetic lovebug who is just under 50 pounds recently had a vet check, and she is healthy, spayed, and up-to-date on her vaccines, dewormer, and flea/heartworm preventative. She has one lump that will require monitoring, but does not require any treatment at this time. If you are interested in adding this incredibly loyal, loving girl to your family, please contact ElderDog Fredericton Pawd at elderdogfredericton@gmail.com.

 

 

Meet SAMMY. He is a 10-year old, neutered male beagle with some extra pounds to love. He is a very sociable, laid back kind of guy who gets along with kids and grown-ups alike. We’re not sure on cats, since he has never seen one. He’s not big on exercise, but he does enjoy the snow and walks. And treats...any treats. He walks pretty well on a leash, but does have a tendency to pull. He likes rides in the car, and doesn’t mind the vet or grooming. He is a very sweet boy who will sit beside you and patiently wait for petting. Sammy has a mild heart murmur, one eye, and is in need of a diet and some good exercise. He has had all his vaccines and is microchipped. He would do best in a fairly quiet home. Currently, Sammy is in foster care in Dartmouth, NS. Please contact Jackie at dartmoutheastrehome@gmail.com You can’t say no to that face!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is CHICO. He is a 45 lb, 13 year old Beagle/Lab mix. He is partially deaf but his nose is in fine working order. Chico is very friendly and social; loves to be outside watching whatever is going on. In spite of being part Beagle, he rarely if ever barks; however, he is very much the Beagle if he gets off leash. A fenced backyard would be desirable. Chico loves to go for walks and play with a ball. His excitement gets the better of him at times and he likes to jump so a home without small children would probably be the best. Chico is good with other dogs, having spent most of his life with another dog. He has been around cats but would chase them if they were willing to run. Chico is neutered and requires a special diet of “Urinary Tract” dog food to keep him healthy. He loves food but human food is a “no, no.” This 13-year young fellow needs a loving home to finish out his days. He is being fostered in Kings County. Please contact Elizabeth at elderdogkingsldr@gmail.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEAR is a 13-year old male Lab-Hound cross with a pleasing, totally non-aggressive personality, both to humans and other animals. He is 57 lbs and gaining as he was very thin. He loves to take walks both on and off leash. Bear has had some skin issues that the vet expects to heal now that he has been neutered. Bear has lived his life enclosed most of the time but is gradually becoming adapted to being outside and taking longer walks every day. He would do well with a family with teens as he loves to play although he would do well with anyone who has time to spend with him. He travels well in a vehicle and loves to go for drives. Bear has some hearing loss but an exceptional nose and good eyesight. He is crate trained for times when left alone. Currently, Bear is in foster care in Kings County, NS. Please contact Nancy at njarmstrong@eastlink.ca or 902 242-2195.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHLOE is a 12-year old female Beagle looking for her forever family to love and who will love her in return. Due to unfortunate circumstances,  Chloe’s family can no longer give her the care or attention she needs. Chloe is approximately 45 lbs., a bit overweight as she loves her treats.  She wasn’t taken out very much for walks and didn’t get the exercise a Beagle needs–another reason for her full figure.  She is housetrained and will go out in the yard but, due to her age, she does have to go out more often. As an older dog, she needs a routine so that she doesn’t have an accident in the house. Chloe doesn’t mind other dogs or cats and is good with kids. She will bark at people at first but she settles down quickly.  She’s a very friendly, loveable, happy-go-lucky dog; her tail is always wagging.  She loves to snuggle and enjoys belly rubs and ear scratches.   Because she is afraid of thunder, during those times she will need a bit of reassurance and extra loving. Chloe has been vet checked, dewormed, defleaed and received her first boosters.  She appears to be healthy but since she is an older girl, a full blood panel was done and we are waiting for the results.  At that time, the vet will recommend if she should or should not be spayed. For more information or if you know anyone who might be interested in this sweet girl, please contact Joyce at clarkmj16@gmail.com or call 1-855-336-4226
