JAZZ…What a cutie!
Jazz is a 12 or 13-year-old, spayed female, short-haired brindle Border Collie weighing in at 40 lbs. She is current with her vet visits and has no health issues or mobility issues. Jazz is very much a submissive dog. She can get along with other dogs, but it will take her a day or two to settle in with them. She has no issues with cats. She seems to take a bit to warm up to other humans, but she does so quickly. She is house broken and sleeps wherever she likes. This past few years all Jazz’s exercise has been in the back yard playing fetch or patrolling the fence line. It would do her good to get out and do some actually walking. Because of Jazz’s tendency to be nervous and shy, loud noises or severe weather can cause her to get scared and hide. Jazz loves to play fetch, walks well on harness and leash, loves the car, and is great at vets and groomers. Jazz is a sweet, kind gal who would do best in a home without little children. If you think our little Miss Jazz is a fit for you and your family, please contact Kim Chivilo at, or text at 587-988-9946 or Regan from the Calgary Pawd at 







Jolie is still looking for her forever home. She is a spayed 10-year old Shepherd-Lab mix weighing approximately 47 lbs.  She recently had dental work and is up-to-date on vaccinations, flea and tick and heartworm prevention.  As with senior humans, senior dogs also need help to make their lives more comfortable.  She takes a fish oil supplement for stiffness in her back leg and a daily pill for high liver enzymes; otherwise, she’s in good health. Due to the stiffness in her leg, she cannot manage a lot of stairs.

Jolie is a gentle soul with a very sweet, easygoing personality. She knows basic commands and understands many words such as food, treat, car, walk. She loves attention but isn’t pushy and belly rubs are the best.  She likes to sleep on the floor in her owner’s bedroom with the door open. She’s never been crated and there is no need to try now. She looks forward to short leisurely walks and is good both on and off leash. She likes car rides and will quickly jump in when the door is open.  

Jolie is managing very well at her foster home with the other dogs but she would love to be the only fur baby and not have to share the attention. She’s been around cats and is very well behaved around people.  She hasn’t had a lot of interaction with very young children but she is so laid back, we feel she would do well as long as they are well behaved and respectful towards her.  She would love to have a companion who is home most of the day and start her retirement with them in the New Year.   We’re hoping she can find a home with no pets or small children and without a lot of stairs. This sweetheart deserves a loving home where she can get all the love and attention for the rest of her golden years.  We know the perfect companion is out there looking for a dog just like her.

Jolie is currently located in Burlington, ON.  Transportation can be arranged for out of province.  If you are looking for a quiet, easygoing, awesome companion whose favorite pastime is cuddling with you, this is your girl. Anyone interested in giving this sweetheart, please contact Joyce Clark at or call 1-855-336-4226






This handsome dog’s name is Mac, and he is Fredericton’s latest dog in need of a forever home. Mac is an (almost) 8 year old Husky/Shepherd mix, and weighs in at approximately 115 pounds. Mac has been well cared for throughout his life as a family dog, and is now looking for the perfect home to spend the rest of his golden years.

Mac requires a home able to provide him with the mental and physical stimulation he needs. Aside from early signs of arthritis in his hips, Mac is healthy and up to date on all vaccinations. Mac does suffer from anxiety and can be destructive when left alone during the day all by himself. For this reason, we would love to find Mac a home where he will have a human companion by his side throughout the day. Mac will wander if not leashed, and therefore we are looking for a home with a fenced-in yard if possible. Mac does well with other large dogs, and we think having a dog-sibling would be great for Mac to help him handle his anxiety, especially when left alone. Mac does have a strong prey drive and given his large size, he would not do well in a home with cats or other small animals. Mac also pulls when walking on leash, therefore his next owner will need to be able to handle walking a dog of his size. Mac should not go to a home with young children.

Once Mac warms up to you and forms a bond, he is a loving dog who just wants to spend his time with his person. If you or someone you know can provide the loving home Mac deserves, or if you are looking for more information, please email ElderDog Fredericton at

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 or 1-855-336-4226.

Say hello to Chito: a sweet senior Shih-Tzu from Fredericton looking for a forever home to spend his retirement years. Chito is 14.5 years old and weighs about 20 pounds. He has been well taken care of with regular vet visits and monthly grooming appointments. Chito has had dental surgery to remove problematic old teeth, he is up to date on vaccinations, he is healthy for his age with the only ‘issues’ being arthritis in his hips and cataracts that cause some vision loss. Chito takes medication daily for his arthritis (powder on food), and also takes eyedrops daily. Chito does seem to have allergies that cause him to scratch and rub his face, but despite best efforts by his vet and former owner, they have not been able to narrow down what he might be allergic to.

Chito is looking to spend the rest of his days in a home with someone who can be with him during the day. We are looking for a home with an owner who is retired or who works from home. Chito spends his time napping, going for walks, collecting his toys into a pile, and following his human around wherever they go. Chito is good with other dogs, and although he has not experienced living with a cat, he is such a sweet boy that we do not think it would be an issue. Chito can manage climbing up stairs on his own when he wants to, but we would recommend that his adoptive home mainly carries him up and down big flights of stairs. Chito does not like the cold and snow, so in the winter time he keeps his walks short and his time outdoors to a minimum. Chito is crate trained and doesn’t mind sleeping in his crate for short periods of time when you leave the house, but he is also very well-behaved when left alone to roam the house as well (he never misses a good opportunity to take a nap!). Chito has experience with monthly grooming and is very well-behaved when getting his hair cut.

Overall, Chito is a laid-back senior dog looking to spend his time in a calm environment with somebody next to him. He will make a wonderful companion for somebody who likes to spend their time at home with their dog. For more information about Chito please contact ElderDog Fredericton: or call Riley at 1-506-608-8353
