Meet Ziggy!

Ziggy

Ziggy is a small tan and white Chihuahua. He is approximately 2 years old and weighs 5 pounds.

Ziggy is super sweet and snuggly. He is very true to his breed. He’s a little dog with a big personality wrapped up inside. He loves his people and gets along with other dogs and cats in his foster home. His secret wish is to have all of his person’s attention directed solely at him though. Ziggy is a bit hand shy and is looking for someone to continue working with him on this.

Ziggy

He is generally quiet in the home and he will proudly announce visitors at the door. Ziggy knows how to sit on command, listens when told no and he gives the most precious little pouty faces when he gets himself into mischief. He sleeps all night in his crate without a peep. He absolutely loves stuffed toys and chew ropes to play with. He runs around outside with the big dogs and he’s almost just as fast as they are. When allowed on the bed, Ziggy will bury himself under the covers and fall fast asleep. If you have room in your heart for a little spitfire of a dog, Ziggy would love to meet you.

Ziggy is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Meet Patsy!

Patsy

Hi, my name is Patsy! I am a young Catahoula mix girl (about 1.5 years old), but I have already learned to be afraid of so much. My foster momma is teaching me that I don’t need to be afraid all the time, and that new things are fun! Once I’ve made friends with a dog I love to play. I love to play in the snow, chasing in the snow is the best! I would love to be the only dog in the house, but I could learn to love a sibling. I wish I could find a furever family who will love me and give me belly rubs and take me for walks every day. We could build a snowman together…well, you can, I’ll run around and make you laugh instead! Will you be my furever family?

Patsy

And now, a few words from my foster mom: Patsy is such a special girl. Every day she makes me smile and laugh. She is goofy and silly and her smile is amazing. She can be very fearful of new dogs that come into her space, and will bark or snap at them if she feels threatened. We are working diligently on teaching her that she doesn’t need to be afraid, but her furever family will need to continue this work. She loves to run and play outside and would be an amazing addition to your family. Patsy loves her crate and often will retreat into it when she is feeling insecure, or when she has realized that she hoarded all her toys in there. She does not eat or destroy furniture, but she sure does love to de-stuff her toys! Patsy would be perfect for a family with no other dogs, or a submissive type dog.

Experience needed: Experience with handling a fearful dog
Vocalizing: Barks when left alone for a few minutes, but does settle – not a good option for apartment living
Leash Trained: Reactive to new dogs and will pull.
Reaction to new people: Friendly
Likes: Toys, Belly Rubs, Car Rides

Patsy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Meet Tilly!

Tilly

I’m Matilda, but everyone calls me Tilly. I’m around 60 pounds and red merle Catahoula mix and I am 7 years young.
I love to play and run outside - I still think I'm a young pup! I am quiet in the home and my foster mom says that I am very well behaved. I am a lady and I am fully house trained. I know all the basic obedience commands like sit, down and come. I listen when told no but do follow my nose when there is delicious food around. I'll give you my paw if you give me a treat!

I'm good when left alone – however, an apartment life is probably not the best as I can sing the song of my people for a little while before I settle down and wait patiently for your return. I would love a fenced in yard to call my own and some daily strolls to keep me in shape into my golden years.

Tilly

I have the rough and tough Catahoula play style and have been known to topple over an unsuspecting adult when out playing in the yard. I have lived with children before, but maybe older kids would be best for me. I love people and would not want to bump into any of the smaller ones by accident.

I get along famously with cats and I would love another laid back dog in my new home.

I come from a small town and the sights and sounds of the city are a little foreign to me, but with you to show me the way, I'm sure I could learn to love them. My foster mom says that I am a love bug and I have the best happy dance when she comes home from work each day. If you want to be my snuggle buddy, I would certainly like to meet you.

Tilly is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Meet Peter ADOPTED!

Peter

Peter is an approximately 2 year old brindle male. We have no idea what mix this handsome little dude is - maybe some type of terrier? As a stray, we don't have any background information on Pete but we d know that he is a compact 28 lbs of cuddle. He is easy going and just needs to brush up on some manners and gain some confidence.

Peter LOVES his walks and play time. He adores other dogs, is good with cats, adores treats, snuggles and sleep!

Peter

He is quiet in the house, house broken and had good crate manners once he is in and settled. Peter appears to have had no formal training but is very eager to please and would benefit from obedience classes. We strongly believe that training is an excellent bonding opportunity for dog and new pet owner and this is one smart little guy.

He can be a little bit fearful in new situations but has come leaps and bounds already.

If you are looking for an all round wonderful little boy, Peter is an amazing little companion.

Peter is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Meet Patches!

Patches

Patches is a wonderful girl, we think she is around 2 years old and our best guess for breed is Australian Shepherd and/or Catahoula mix. She weighs approximately 40 pounds.

Patches is very loving and loves to cuddle up with her fosters. She gets along wonderfully with her foster sister (a Catahoula mix). She can be a bit over zealous in her meetings with other dogs on leash, but her foster family is making some progress on this front. She does best with play dates and good doggy friends.

She is crate trained and house trained. She is learning to run with her foster mom and is a great partner and motivator to get out and hit the trails! She is also a great sous-chef, ready to help clean up any messes in the kitchen!

Patches is spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

To apply to adopt Patches, please complete the adoption application form. For more information on Patches or any of our other dogs available for adoption, please contact catahoulaontario@gmail.com

Meet Fiona ADOPTED!

Fiona

This sweet little girl is a joy to be around. She is 45lbs, and about 11 months old or so. She looks like a Beauceron, or a Shepherd mix. We’re not sure on breed, except full bred sweetheart!

So far, her foster mom says that she is a very quick learner, and just loves to please! She will be a treat to train. She is already housetrained, and she’s learning her basic commands in her foster home. Fiona is also a quiet girl, that doesn’t bark much at all, but will whine a bit when she is bored. She loves to play fetch, and loves playing with her stuffies! She is cuddly, and affectionate with her humans, and enjoys making new friends wherever she goes.

Fiona has done very well with other dogs, and loves to play! She can join a home with canine companions, or as an only dog, provided she continues to have social opportunities. She seems pretty interested in the kitty cats though, so no cats would be best. So far she is not overly high energy, but needs a good play and romp each day.

Fiona

She recently had a very nice visit with children (2 & 3) in her foster home, and did marvelously, soaking up the love. So, although she is not living with children currently, she may be a nice candidate for a home with dog-savvy little ones. She loves attention, and loves being with her family.

Fiona’s obstacle right now is that she is scared of vehicles (being near them), and gets car sick. Her foster mom is working hard to show her that cars are not so bad, and trying out a few remedies for the car sickness. She’ll need some extra patience in this domain, for the time being.

Fiona is a gentle soul, with the sweetest facial expressions. If you love a game of fetch, followed by some cuddles, and look forward to working with an eager to please pup, than Fiona may be the gal for you!

Fiona is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm tested (negative).
