About Higgs

Higgs has traveled to Ontario and is being fostered in Kingston, Ontario!

Hey everyone!
My name is Mr. Higgs, I am 4 years old, approx 15 lbs (I know I know I need to go on a diet) neutered, microchipped and up to date on my vaccines!
The volunteers at Coconut Hound Haven think that I am a Chihuahua/Terrier mix. I must agree I definitely have  what the humans here call "small man syndrome" I am working on it and getting much better. I love belly rubs, if you stop rubbing my belly and I want more I will be sure to nudge your hand to tell you to keep going. If I want to snuggle, I will come and find you and nudge your leg until you give me attention. I really LOVE sleeping and snuggling in bed at night with my human. I do need someone to help me lose some weight, my extra weight isn't good for my bum leg. When I was younger my front left leg was broken and it did not heal straight. I am still great at boogie-ing around but do need to stop for a quick rest every once in a while. I am great with other dogs and with cats however I would prefer a home with no small children due to my trust issues.

I have been in Ontario for a couple of weeks now. I have decided I don't really like to go out in the cold so I do have accidents in the house. I know I will have to get used to it but I need more practice still. I am more of a curl up on the couch in front of the fire kind of guy. I am not crate trained but my foster Mom says if someone wanted me to be she thinks I would be fine. Apparently I like to sleep alot so she doesn't think it would be an issue :) . I behave and don't get into mischief when I am left alone, they say it is because all I do is sleep while they are gone! Oh and my foster Mom is always telling everyone what a good boy I am because I don't bark. I am full of pizaz and have a personality of my own, which I am not afraid to show!

If you are willing to give me a helping hand please fill out an adoption application below, I promise to repay you in cuddles!

**Carmenia will be going to Ontario on Feb 22nd and will be looking for her forever home. She will be fostered in Kingston, Ontario!! Hello Everyone! My name is Carmenia and I am a proud DCDR rescue! Living a happy life on the beach was great until I became ill. I lost a lot of weight and you could see every bone in my little body. At one point all I could do was lay there. I could not get up to go find food or water. Not being able to move, I prepared for the worst and was very sad. But then something beyond magical transpired. I opened my eyes to see two beautiful, gentle souls were looking at me. They put me in a car and took me to a place were I was looked at and then put in a resting place with food and water. I felt safe there and just slept. A few hours later another person craddled me in her arms and took me with her. Being so exhausted I feel asleep. When I woke up I was on a comfy bed with what is called a blankie on me. I felt so good! The lady who I later would learn was my foster mama had some yummy warm food in a bowl. It was so good and I gulped down from fresh water too. That exhausted me and I had to go potty but I would hold it. This was not going to be the case as the lady carried me out to the yard and was so gentle with me. She made sure I was steady on my feet before letting go of me. She told me to walk around a little bit to get my body going again. I was then carried back in bed and covered up. My foster mama fed me and took me outside every two hours for 10 days! Each day I got strong and felt so much better. I had some medication too that was fixing me all up. At first I just would walk around a bit outside and mama would carry me to the tiki hut during the evening and I would snuggle up beside her. Now I prance around any chance I get. I feel soo good and have the biggest grin on my face. Jumping up on the couch is not an issue and is a lot of fun. Eating on my own is great as mama leaves kibble and fresh water out all the time. I feel like a million bucks now after being cared for and nursed back to health. I am looking for my forever home now. I am a bit of an older gal. 9 years, spayed, UTD on shots, 31 pounds but should be 45-50 and microchipped. I am use to all sorts of people, children, cats and dogs. I would do better in an only dog home as I am really ejoying this one on one time with people. Update: Fen 9, 2019 When I brought Carmenia home she could not even walk. I had to carry her outside to pee and then bring her back in on her bed. Sleeping for days and days as she was exhausted. Giving her small health meals ever two hours and her medication helped a lot. It was a huge work in progress but I never gave up and neither did she. Together we got her stronger. One month later she is full of beans and can run like the other dogs. You would never know she was an older gal. Full of life and always, always hugging me and giving me kisses. I am so proud of Carmenia because she fought to live. ❤️ show less

Dulce is heading to Kingston, Ontario on February 24th. Dear furture family, My name is Dulce, I am 1 year and 2 months old. I have been spayed and am up to date ony my vaccines. I have been told by my people here in the Dominican Republic that I am a happy go-lucky girl. I love to play and run around outside (outside is my favourite place to be). I am very good with other dogs, both young and old. I have not yet met and kids but the humans here think that I would be great with them. I have been told about the white stuff called snow, the people here have forwarned me that it is a bit colder then I am used to here but I am totally okay with that! Maybe my new family would get me a fancy new jacket to wear?! I would like a home that has someone that would play fetch or tag with me in the yard, someone that would like to give me belly rubs and treats. I will even let you scratch behind my ears (they are super soft). I would like an adopter who has lots of patience though. When I first meet new people I can be very shy. It is a bit scarey for me to not know who people are or how they are going to treat me. I really like food so you might need to bribe me a bit to make you like you faster. If you think you have a spot for me in your heart and home please fill out an adoption application below! show less

Lissie is being fostered in Hamilton, Ontario! Hi all, my name is Lissie. I am 5 months old. Was recently spayed and vaccinated. I will be micro-chipped before heading to my forever home. I am currently being fostered in Hamilton, Ontario, but am willing to travel the world to find my forever home. I have been told I am one the the sweetest dogs around. I am very kind and gentle and I do very very well with other dogs and children of all ages. I have decided since I came to Ontario that I enjoy cats as well! I LOVE to go for long walks on a leash. I am being crate trained too and so far I don't mind it. I have been working really hard on not peeing and pooping in the house and my foster Mom says I am showing her signs that I need to go so she can take me out. I have not had any accidents yet. I love to chew on toys, my foster family has given me lots of toys to play with. So far I have only chewed the things I am allowed to but the things I shouldn't chew are put away while I am learning. I am not a barker for just no reason. I do bark a bit to say hello or give a couple barks while I am playing with my friends but I know when to stop. I love meeting new people and animals, it is fun. I don't really feel the need to snuggle. I like to be near people and I do love a belly rub but I don't really snuggle a lot. I am currently about 14 pounds and the humans are guessing I will be full grown at about 25 lbs. I am looking for a home to call my own, to get belly rubs, treats, and to run and play. I promise to pay you back with friendship and kisses! If you think I would be right for you, please fill out an adoption application below! show less

"Hey! My name is Scooby. My last owners did not want me. It made me really sad. They asked the girls who come and help me with medication if they wanted me. Well, luck was on my side that day and they said YES! THEY SAID YES!! Oh my goodness....I was so happy to go with them. Being out for the first time I was so excited and bounced around the car a lot. Eventually we arrived to the one ladies house where I would stay until a forever home was found. I like that idea. There were 20 plus dogs there and I was very happy about that. Lots of play time to catch up on. There were cats there too. It is great there as I can run, have fun and catch up on lost time. I am a big boy at 56 pounds and at 9 months. I am very strong and do not know my size. I am high energy and would do well with another dog in the house to keep me company and busy. Although I love kids, I am thinking it would be better to have older ones in the house with an owner who can handle me on my leash. My foster mama said i will settle down as I get a bit older. It is just that I am so happy and love everyone and I want everyone to love me. Don't forget to send in an application form with my name on it so we can snuggle in your bed soon." Lot of love, Scooby Scooby. DOB May 1, 2018. UTD shots. neutered. microchipped. 56 pounds. show less
