* Poe is an 8-week old Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix. He is currently adoptable to Ottawa area homes only because he will require his last round of vaccines and his neuter surgery at our vet (at our cost) when he is old enough. He has been microchipped *

Poe 2

Well hello there, I'm little Poe. I was abandoned when I was just six weeks old, but a nice lady saved me and she found me a foster home with two dog brothers and one dog sister. I might be the smallest of the bunch, but I'm definitely the cutest. Just look at me!

Just because I'm small doesn't mean that I can't learn stuff. I know that my name is Poe (or sometimes Poe-Poe or Pooh-Pooh), and I can sit down when you give me a treat and I'll come when you call me. I still don't quite get what's wrong with peeing on the floor though. I mean, when you gotta go, you gotta go, no matter where you are! But it's funny to see how excited my peeps get when I do my thing on a pee pad or outside, so sometimes I'll go in one of those places. You just really never know where I'm going to poop next... I like to keep my peeps on their toes. Bwahahahah!

I like to play tug-of-war with my ropies, and it's fun to chase the ball. I like playing in the snow too. And I REALLY like to chew stuff! I still don't know what's good and what's bad to chew, so it's important to keep a close eye on me for now to make sure I don't chew something that could hurt my tummy if I swallow it. Here's something else I like doing - when my peeps are walking, I'll sneak up behind them and try to eat the bottoms of their pants. I have no idea why they don't think this is a good idea, I think it's a great thing to do!

Poe 1

I'm a pretty loving boy, but I have an independent streak too. I like being held and snuggled for a little while, but I'll let you know when I want to get down – there are lots of things to do and see! And don't be offended if I don't want to lie on your lap when you're watching TV. I do like to be close to you, but I prefer to lie on the floor by your feet. Although my very favourite place to lie down for a snooze is on your pillow right on top of your head. The back of the sofa is a good spot too.

I haven't had a chance to meet many humans yet, but I really like the ones that I live with. They're nice to me and feed me and play with me and I have a comfy dog bed to hang out on and they give me toys and treats and pats and kisses... what's not to love! Will you do all those things for me too? 'Cause if you will, I want to meet you and maybe you could be my very own special human.



Poe's adoption fee will include three rounds of vaccinations, neuter at our cost when he is old enough and microchipping and is $500.
