Zhoosh: 8-year old, male, black Lab cross, neutered, 70 lb.

Zhoosh is extremely intelligent, playful and loving. He will greet you at the door with wiggles and often his favourite toy . He is a very strong, energetic and active dog despite his age - he needs lots of physical and mental exercise and stimulation. Some of his favourite activities are chewing bones, chasing other puppy friends at the dog park, and following scent trails on his walks - he has the most incredible nose! He enjoys rolling on lawns and even seems to have favourites. When you need some downtime, he is great at just hanging out and keeping you company. His calm side loves to nap and cuddle. Zhoosh’s personality is an incredible balance of both energetic and easygoing - he will have your heart from day one and bring so much joy and companionship to your life. For 7 years, Zhoosh was the companion to a person who was homeless. For the past 5 months in a family home, he was able to be left alone for 4-5 hours at a time. However, he gets separation anxiety when under stress, ie changing homes, changing routines. Zhoosh will need someone home most of the time and who can work with his anxiety. He’s otherwise a very well-behaved boy. He can be leash reactive to other dogs but plays well off leash. He has a strong prey drive for cats and squirrels. He has not lived with children and would not be appropriate for a home with small children.

Zhoosh has recently been to the vet. He is up to date with all his shots and vaccinations. Zhoosh is currently in Maple Ridge, BC. For more information on adopting Zhoosh, please email Michelle at homesbylarose@gmail.com or 1-855-336-4226.

 

ADOPT ME! | SOPHIE is a 12 year old (almost) Puggle who is being rehomed because one of her humans has a physical disability and is unable to continue her care. She currently lives with her Beagle sister, but they are not a bonded pair and Sophie is able and willing to live on her own. Sophie is affectionate and loving once she has come to trust a new person. In fact, she gets so very attached to her human/s that she finds it difficult being left alone for long. However, we feel that she has great potential in a calm home where she is the only pet and can have regular routines, lots of walk time and personal attention. This should be a home where someone is home most of the day to reassure her. At present her nervousness extends to vet visits, nail trims and car rides (and she is occasionally given Alprazolam). She is generally in good health with the exception of mild environmental allergies which are currently controlled with Apoquel when they become acute). She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Sophie spends a good part of the day sleeping, but she really enjoys having her sleep interrupted by a good walk. She gets quite excited and will pull at first, so a harness is advised. She also loves cheese and Kong type toys. She has not been tested with cats, but probably would not be a fan. She is also not keen on small children, excessive noise, or being picked up. But she loves being brushed and snuggles with her human, so a calm home with a senior human companion would be ideal.

Sophie is currently located in Waterdown, ON. Transportation can be arranged for out of province. If you are interested in giving this lovely girl a new forever home, please contact April Kilfoyle at elderdoghalton@gmail.com or by phone at (905) 749-6790.
