About Fania

Fania is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic.

Dear new best friend,
My name is Fania, I am about 7 months old and around 30 pounds. I have been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.
I was living a very lonely life on the streets of the Dominican when an angel disguised as a DCDR Volunteer decided to give my a second chance at life and took me in under her wing. She gave me a safe spot to stay, lots of food and love, I will be forever grateful for her!
However, it is time for me to find my forever home!
I am smart, curious, playful and super cute (don’t you think?). I am well behaved around other dogs and get along well with them. I have not met any children or cats but I really think that I would enjoy them!
I like going on walks, but really would rather run free in a fenced in area or large county lot!
If you think that I would be the perfect snuggle bug for you please fill out an adoption application, I am most definitely willing to travel to make it home to you! Let the ladies know so I have some time to pack my suitcase!

Not what you were looking for? You can adopt a different pet in Kingston by using our search feature and adjusting the radius. Thank you for helping our animal shelters and rescue groups with pet adoption!

Big Mac Update June 20, 2019 ❤️  He is doing excellent and feels so much happier since his leg is healed.  Leafy, who appears to like the older fellas loves cuddling up to him.....no complaints from BIG MAC on this.  He is great with kids, cats, and dogs.   Big Mac update June 3, 2019. Look at Big Mac!!  He is doing excellent and has turned into a very happy playful boy.  Big Mac was the sweetie that was found near death on the side of the road with a broken leg.  He is putting  on some much needed weight as well!  Neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, 35 pounds but should be 50 pounds!  He can be yours by going to the link below and filling out an adoption application form.  😁 Big Mac is currently being forstered in the Dominican Republic. :) Oh hey there everyone! My name is Big Mac! I am approximately one year old. Neutered, up to date on my vaccines and will be microchipped before heading to my forever home! Where to start? Sit back folks I come with a story. . . As you can see in my photo's although VERY handsome, you may have noticed my wonky looking leg and the fact that I am a little on the thin side. When I was found I had given up. . .I had a broken leg which made it hard for me to get around and find food, I was severely under weight and honestly thought that was how I was going to spend my final days. But one day something Magical happened! I was picked up and taken to a local veterinary clinic! They treated me like royalty. They did their best to make me comfortable and fix up my leg! They fed me amazing food and treats and kept me company! Once I was well enough, I got to move to my foster mom's house! Whoa I think I hit the jackpot! We are so spoiled here it is amazing! I am a super happy guy and get along well with dogs, cats and children! If you are looking for a cute face to add to your family please consider filling out an application below.

90 Blanquito is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic Hi! My name is Blanquito as I have a beautiful white coat and I am a handsome boy. That's what my mom tells me. I have a mom here in the Dominican but she is worried for me. We live on a very busy street and she knows it's possible I may get hit by a car or motorcycle one day like so many of my buddies have. She asked the nice people at the rescue if they could find a home where I would be safe. I think I am a very lucky boy that my mom loves me so much as to find me a safe home. Because of that I am super protective of my mom and our house. I sometimes snarl and growl a bit when people come over. So I think I need a home where my new family doesn't have any kids around and can help work with me to get over my fears. I promise I am worth the extra effort. Just ask my mom. Meet Blanquito, he is available for adoption. He is a typical 2 year old Dominican dog, who is an escape artist and likes to walk the street. Victoria, his owner, is afraid for him, afraid that he will get run over and get hurt as they live on a very busy street in Luperon. He does get along with other dogs. We are not sure about his interaction with kids but we do not feel it would be a good idea until he has more training. Blanquito is very possessive and protective of his home. He has issues with people coming into his space and will growl and sometimes bite. Blanquito needs an experience adopter who is willing to train him and socialize him properly.  Blanquito is neutered and fully vaccinated and has been coming to our monthly parasite clinic for treatment every month, Victoria actually brings him to the park without a collar and leash, she just speaks to him and he follows her. He will be staying with Victoria until a suitable forever home can be found for him. show less

Drago is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic Drago was thrown out in the street by his owner because he had mange. A horriby, severe case. He was living in the street for close to a year, gradually getting less fur, getting thinner and weaker. He had large open wounds and was constantly scratching. His skin was so bad it literally fell off in your hands if you touched him. Even his paw pads were burnt off in places from the hot tarmac. You would think that all of this would be enough for one poor dog to experience but there was still more to come for poor Drago.He hit a bad patch and started refusing to eat, wet his bed at night and was getting even thinner very fast. After blood tests he was diagnosed with ehrlichia and chronic anemia. He is currently on meds for this for 30 days and he is picking up again very quickly. He has two weeks left on this treatment. He is now growing back some fur and is quite energetic playing with all of the other dogs in his foster home. Drago is such a sweet boy, he loves to be his human's shadow. As he begins to feel better his personality is starting to emerge. His little hairless, stick like tail is constantly wagging and his bum is always wiggling. He is a happy boy! He is a bit shy still with new people but that is to be expected after everything he has been through. Drago LOVES to eat. After all of his time on the street starving, when food comes out, he can not get it fast enough. He makes a bit of a mess with his enthusiasm. He is not a picky eater. He loves all kinds of meats and also loves his kibble as well as his foster brothers kibble. He enjoys playing with dogs of all sizes. He has no problem romping around with his foster brother who is a rotweiler or playing with smaller dogs also. He is not yet kid or cat tested. He has only seen cats from a distance. He will bark at them but his foster siblings do as well so he may just be reacting because they do. So far he has no bad habits. However his personality is really just beginning to emerge because he is finally well enough to play. We will continue to update his personality traits. He does need a fenced back yard. He enjoys the freedom of playing in a safe, fenced space. Drago is not yet completly house trained but he is working on it. He does very well through the night. He sleeps all night and does not have any accidents. If left home alone all day he will still have some accidents.  Drago is about one year old and almost 9 lbs. He has been neutered. He is not yet up to date on his vaccinations. We have been giving him plenty of time to get healthy before doing anything new. He will start his vaccinations soon. He will be microchipped at the time of adoption. Drago will need to be full vaccinated and healed before he will be ready to travel to his forever home. He is being well taken care of by his foser family.  show less

Fiona is currently being fostered in Las Terranas, Dominican Republic. So they call me a special needs dog and they also call me Fiona. Sometimes I feel kinda funky and then suddenly I wake up and I am exhusted. I over heard them talking after the took me to the vet and they say I get "seizures" and that's what makes me feel funny and then so terribly tired. They gave me some pills and I haven't had a "siezure" since. My favorite thing is my pillow and my bed and if you'd be willing to give me belly scatches or give me a brush that would be heaven.  I am not a huge fan when people move to quick. I'm just the kinda girl who needs a little time to trust. I was on the streets a long time and its how I managed to survived. I know maybe I need a little more care and love than your normal dog but I promise I will give that love to you 10x over! Notes from her foster mom:  She enjoys lots of rest in her bed after she has had a seizure. If something exciting is happening she joins the crowd. Fiona is not in need of any medication for her seizures. They are too infrequent to use medication for. She has averaged a seizure every month or two for the past year. They are most common in early evening. They are short but afterwards she is exhausted and will sleep alot. She needs to be provided with a safe place to rest. Since September she has had very few seizures. The vet has checked her over many times. They do not feel she is epilectic. They feel she had Ehrlichiosis, this is the Dominican tick born illness. She has now been treated for this. She has not had a seizure since. We are unsure if her seizures will continue. When they do she requires a gentle stoke and a soothing voice without any panic or stress.  this is really all you can do. She does not need to go to a vet afterwards, just loved. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Fiona is about 70 lbs and almost 7 years of age. She is ready for her forever home. If you have a soft spot for a dog that needs that extra bit of loving, please consider making a home for Fiona. show less

Fluffer Nutter is currently being fostered in Rockport, Ontario.  HI! My name is Fluffer Nutter. I am currently 5 months old and love to play with my 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I was rescued off a beach and then 2 ladies came and took us to an even safer place to live. One of the ladies (Tanya) likes snacks, so we were all named after her favorite treats to thank her for saving us!  I'm a little shy when I first meet new people,but I come around quickly. When you first come into my space I act nervous like I don't want you to be there. Please be persisitent because by the time you leave, I don't want you to go!! I get a bit confused that way and need to be reminded that cuddles and pets are great. I LOVE to play with my toys and am a bit dramatic. I love to be silly with them. I think I would like to have another cat to live with. My foster home has lots of dogs, but I miss my siblings. I wouldn't argue if I had a playmate in my forever home. I could share.  Fluffer Nutter, along with his 4 siblings (Kit Kat, Skittles, Twizzler and Snickers were found at 2 days old along with their mom, on a deserted stretch of beach by a great local man. DR had been experiencing a lot of rain and the local man knew they would not survive if left alone. Fluffer Nutter is neutered and up to date on the necessary vaccinations. he is ready for his forever home.  show less

Ivy is located in Napanee, Ontario. Hi there! I know they will tell you all about me in section below but I thought I'd tell you about myself too. I am smart and loving and loyal and it is very important that my humans are safe. When I arrived in Canada as a puppy my family wanted to socailize me but I wasn't ready to be in large spaces with lots of people and dogs around. They loved me and thought they were helping me but they made me super scared of everyone and everything. And when I am that scared I nipped at people. Then they had to send me away because they were worried I would go from nipping to bitting and didn't want me to be euthanized for being a mean dog. But I am not mean I was just so super scared and over whealmed I didn't know how to let people know it. The rescue gave me to this woman Cathy to help me gain confidence and a nice man came over to help me too. And it is working!!!! I feel better. I am not scared nearly so much but I still don't like strangers in my space too fast or too soon. I know I am not that easy dog that everyone wants but I just want a safe place to be loved. A place to call my home. I promise to love you pieces and never leave your side. Please give me a place not to be scared and to grow. I'm a good girl I just need to be safe. Notes from foster mom: Ivy is a very energetic playful girl. She wants at least one other canine sibling in her home and she wants a large secure fenced yard or farm to burn off all her energy. Ivy loves to spend time outside playing. She requires a home with no children. She would do very well in an active family with a human hiker or runner! Ivy is a very smart girl and has a ton of love and cuddles to give. She responds very quickly to training. Ivy is looking for a forever home that is willing to work with her. She has some special needs that we would like to tell you about. Ivy needs to have an experienced owner. She needs an owner willing to continue her training in Napanee, Ontario. She also needs an owner willing to transfer care slowly beginning with visits, an over night, a weekend and so on. Ally has been doing extensive training for almost 6 months now and due to her past issues we need an adopter that is willing to learn and continue with this. In the past, Ivy has been very protective and does not like to have new people coming into her space. She has responded by being very nippy and barking. She may settle into her home quickly with the people she gets used to seeing and has become this way with any guests coming into the space. Ivy would require a home that is not a busy household and has as few people coming and going as possible. She would be an amazing companion dog for a single person. Her foster has put in a great deal of time and energy to curb her bad  behaviour. Ivy is doing doing very well but she needs an adopter willing to carry it forward. Ivy needs and deserves a forever home but it needs to be with someone willing to commit the time to continue training. Ivy would be an amazing dog for agility or scent work classes etc. Ivy wants to please and wants a job. She is very smart and learns quickly. She has proven to have excellent recall and is house trained. She is a very eager girl and will love her person 100%. She is a very affectionate little girl. Ivy is just one and a half years old, about 25 lbs (similar size to a jack russell) spayed, up to date on her shots and microchipped. Ivy is currently being foster outside of Kingston, Ontario near Napanee.  show less

Kambo is being fostered in the Dominican Republic at Coconut Hound Haven. Hi I am Kambo. I have  alot of changes in my life lately and I won't lie I kinda like it. I was born on the street and I have live there since my mom left me. I never had a human to call my own and no ever paid me any attention or gave me any pets. I didn't know that in some places that's what dogs are for; to love and get pets. I have a ball to play with that I LOVE. I really love when they throw it for me and then try to get it and they have to chase me. I love to play chase and I almost never let them catch me. When they brought me to Cocounut Hound Haven they showed me what pets and love is like and it is amazing! I can't get enough! I hear that there is a family out there that wants to do just that! Is that you? I'd love to meet you. Notes from foster mom: Kambo is approx. 8 months old and 30 lbs. He is shy at first, but once he warms up, he loves attention. He probably has never had human touch before, but now is loving every minute of it. He finally feels safe :) kambo would do well in a home where he could get lots of one on one attention. He still needs time to learn to trust humans. He would love to have that special person he could count on. He has lots of energy so he would do well with a person who enjoys walking, running, hiking etc. A person who enjoys training dogs in order to bond and build trust and confidence would be fabulous for Kambo. He is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered and ready to find his forever home.    show less

Katty is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic Hi! Hi! Hi! Do you want to run with me? Do you want to play? Don't let my limp fool you I love to move. I got hit by a truck and it really hurt so I was lying by the side of the road for a long time. Then this gentle person took me to this amazing place called a "home" and cared for and I feel so much better. I am super glad my home has fenced yard so it would likely be best if you want to adopt me that you do too! I love kids and other dogs. I get nervous if new dogs get right in my face. I like to meet them slowly. I've never met a cat so I am not sure what I think of them yet. Notes from foster dad: Katty is currently around 5 months of age and about 15 lbs. She is not yet spayed yet, she is up to date on her vaccinations.She will be spayed before being adopted. Katty is a very active girl and needs lots of space to run. A fenced back yard to keep her safely secured is essential. She is now recovered from her accident and doing well. She has a slight limp but it does not slow her down. Katty is becoming more obedient and learning new things all the time. She is a bit of a barker to communicate when people come to the door or strange new animals are around etc. She can be a bit of a chewer, however she is still a puppy so she needs to be taught. She would do well to be crate trained in her forever home. She is doing well with her leash training. Katty loves to be with people, she is a little shadow. She would do best to have another dog around to keep her company. She does get lonely easily. Katty wants to find her forever person, could that be you? Please understand when you are adopting a young puppy, they must be brought up to date on vaccinations and neutered/spayed before they can fly to their forever homes. This process can not happen until they are between 4-8 months of age depending on the dog. If you choose to adopt a puppy, please understand that because of the volume of animals we care for we can not provide more than monthly updates for you. We do appreciate how hard it is to wait and how exciting the process is for you. Our volunteers are very busy caring for a high volume of animals and don't get thevchance to take photos and be at computers for updates. Thank you for understanding. show less

Kitty is being fostered in Madoc, Ontario Hello, I am Kitty. I was on the street with my babies who were just born and didn't know what to do. Lucky someone rescued me and brought me to my foster mom. She took good care of me and my babies. But to be honest I didn't like to be touched too much when my babies were small. Also I didn't like the dogs close to my babies when they were small and would smack them for no reason . But with my babies all grown up I got over all that and I actually discovered I like to be pet. Recently I starting jumping up my foster mom's lap, that is actually really nice. Also I will allow her now to pick me up for a couple of minutes, also not bad, I think I could get used to this. I might give a little love bite to show how much I like it. With my foster mom having lots and lots of cats and another mother cat outside with her babies. It was decided I would stay inside. I was inside for months. I can go outside now, but really prefer to be inside now. I am completely litter box trained. I am okay with dogs also now.  Look at my video and you will see how cute and playful I am. I have been in Ontario for a couple of weeks now. I live with kids now which I am starting to really enjoy. I am a bit shy with all the changes but I am really looking forward to finding my forever home.    show less

Lilly is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic Lilly is super smart and loving life. She learns commands and takes to new things very easily. We saw her on April 29 sitting in the middle of the main street when we were driving into Puerto Plata. She did not move and we knew she would be run over any second so we jumped out of the car and picked her up and took her home. She was very dehydrated and disoriented. She was also dealing with mange. We gave her a bath, fed her and brought her to Dra. Marcela the next day. Lilly was approx 2 months at that time, weighing 10lbs. She was given weekly ivermectine injections and medicated baths. Once she had gotton rid of all parasites, diarrhea stopped and her fur has grown beautifully. She visited the vet ot long ago for her second vaccines and was found to be a healthy, happy pup who is now only missing her very own family for her happily ever after! Please understand when you are adopting a young puppy, they must be brought up to date on vaccinations and neutered/spayed before they can fly to their forever homes. This process can not happen until they are between 4-8 months of age depending on the dog. If you choose to adopt a puppy, please understand that because of the volume of animals we care for we can not provide more than monthly updates for you. We do appreciate how hard it is to wait and how exciting the process is for you. Our volunteers are very busy caring for a high volume of animals and don't get the chance to take photos and be at computers for updates. Thank you for understanding. Lilly loves company and to play but also enjoys just sitting on our lap chewing a bone. She wouldn't be happy having to stay in a crate several hours a day. There needs to be a yard that she can play in. She has no separation anxiety, accepts when playtime is over. She is excited to see our cats and wants to play with them. We havent had a chance to test her with other dogs/kids but cant imagine there would be a problem. Lily will be spayed when age appropriate. She is now 20 lbs and 3 months old. We expect that she would be around 45lbs at full growth however we do not know either parent so it is hard to know for sure.   show less

Maggie is currently being fostered at Coconut Hound Haven in the Dominican Republic Hi there. I don't know, if you know how hard it can be to be a puppy in the Dominican. My mom left me on my own one day on the streets and I wasn't sure what to do but I started rooting around in the garbage on the streets to try and find something to eat and I was covered in little bugs that made me itch and bleed. I really missed my mom terribly. A sweet woman must have felt sorry for me and she started leaving out food for me so at least my belly stopped hurting. It was hard though to find a place to sleep and I had to constantly dodge cars and motorcycles which is super scary. One day the nice woman who was feeding me picked me up and said enough of this life for me. She took me to a clinic (?) and they took me to a place called the CHH. They have fixed me up and I feel great. I am looking for a home to call my home. They all say I never have to live on the streets again. Note from resue: Today at the DCDR monthly parasite clinic, a woman brought in a street dog that has been trying to find food in the garbage. She said it broke her heart to watch it look for food. She put out what she could for him, but she knew he needed more help then she could give. This girl, now called Maggie, approx 5 mths old, 24 lbs, is in fair condition, but full of fleas and ticks. She is now cleaned up and has started her vaccinations. Maggie is an active girl who needs a fenced in yard to be allowed to fun freely. An active family that could continue to challenge her would be fabulous. Maggie can be a bit of a chewer, she does require chew toys to keep her occupied and out of trouble.  show less

Max will be joining us in Ontario soon. He will be available for adoption in Ontario only. Max has had quite the journey. He was rescued in December of 2018. Max had issues getting around and seemed to be in a great deal of discomfort. Some days he couldn't even use his back legs at all.  After a trip to the specialist and a bunch of testing we discovered that he had luxated knee caps in both legs and both of his ligaments were ruptured. He required 2 different surgeries on each leg! After getting the needed surgeries,  lots of TLC and being given time to heal, Max is doing fantastic. He gets around just fine now. He enjoys his daily beach waks, playing with other dogs and chilling out for a snuggle at the end of the day. Max is a very sweet boy.  We are looking for an adopter in Ontario so that the Ontario chapter can assist with any support that Max may need as he ages. Max needs a home without a lot of stairs. He can go up and down stairs but after doing too many he often needs to rest so we think it still causes him discomfort. His forever home should have as few stairs as possible for him to be comfortable. Ma plays wonderfully with dogs of all ages and sizes. He is also cat friendly! Max has not had the opportunity to be around children so we are unsure about how he would deal with them at this point. Max will always walk a bit funny because of his knee issues but it does not seem to slow him down. As he ages, Max may require a wheel chair for his back end. We are not able to predict what will happen with his knees as he ages. The Ontario chapter will be there to support his adopter and assist with making sure he has what he needs.  Max does not enjoy sharing his food and toys and prefers to eat alone and undisturbed. He is food possessive so it is best to not have other dogs in his food space. Max is 50 lbs and almost one and a half years old. He is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.  Even after all that Max has been through with multiple surgeries and moves in the last six months he remains a very happy boy. His tail is always wagging. He enjoys people and animals very much. Max deserves a special home to be loved and cared for.  show less

Sandy is being fostered in Kingston, Ontario.  Pleased to meet you I am named Sandy. Do you like a girl who is confident, smart and can walk on her front feet? What about a girl who has her own set of wheels? Your search is over that is me! I love every adventure you can think of and I don't let anything stop me. I don't remember a time when my back legs worked so I not quite sure how or when it happened but you know they just don't work. But I can balance on my front feet and run like the wind. I'm kinda cool. I do need a bit of help with peeing and its best if I wear a diaper because I'm not good at peeing and pooping on command. But my foster mom says I am the easiest special needs dog ever. I don't think I am really special needs, just special. Sandy is a one year old girl and full grown at about 12.5 lbs. Sandy is a very strong willed, determined girl. She is sweet, cuddly, silly and smart. Don't let those back legs fool you. She has managed on the streets with only the use of her front end. Her back end is paralyzed but she is mobile with just her front legs. That right there tells you something about this girls will power. She has a wheel chair in her foster home which she has been learning to use since arriving in Kingston, Ontario. She is loving life and full of spunk. She requires no special ongoing medical care because of her legs. You have to meet this girl, she is very special.  show less

Shay is currently being fostered at Coconut Hound Haven in the Dominican Republic Hi there. Pleased to meet you. I am now called Shay. They used to call me "Go Away". I like Shay better. I am so happy to be at the Haven. My mom left me all alone and I was looking for food when another big dog attacked me. I was so hungery and itchy, my skin just hurt and bugs kept biting me. I was so sad. Why didn't someone want me? I really like humans. But here at the Haven all the humans love me. They gave me a bath and give me hugs and kisses. They tell me I can have as many as I want and food too! And that I will have a family of my own. Gosh I love this place, but a home of my own that would be heaven on earth! Today (May 7th) at the monthly parasite clinic, a woman brought in a street dog that has been trying to find food in the garbage. She said it broke her heart to watch it look for food. She put out what she could for him, but she knew he needed more help then she could give. The woman said there was also a second pup with it, but she could not catch it . Later on she was able to secure the pup, and brought it right away to the clinic for help. Thank you Sharon Villaman for delivering them via Motorconcho. The boy, now named Shay, approx. 4 mths old, 12 lbs and very thin, full of fleas and he is pretty banged up, lots of bite marks and scabs all over him. The girl, now called Maggie, approx 5 mths old, 24 lbs, is in much better condition, but full of fleas and ticks. They are both now cleaned up and have started their vaccinations. Once out of isolation and found healthy and sterilized, they will be available for adoption. show less

I love people and I love getting attention. I am not always into snuggling but I like to be close to people. I guess I just like to decide when I feel like being on your lap. I am a bit of a shadow, I hope you don't mind. Some days I think I purrrrrrr, all day long. I love to play in the water, yup I know, weird but I do! I am litter trained and dog friendly. I am almost perfect right, could you give me a great forever home? Skittles, along with his 4 siblings (Kit Kat, Snickers, Twizzler and Fluffer Nutter were found at 2 days old along with their mom, on a deserted stretch of beach by a great local man. DR had been experiencing a lot of rain and the local man knew they would not survive if left alone. The kittens are all now weaned, spayed and vaccinated.  show less

Tiki is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic I am called Tiki and I definitely a pug. Or at least lots of pug. I am playful and fun loving. When it comes to my food I get a little grumpy so leaving me alone when I eat is the best. I love kids but I need them to stay away from my food too! LOL. Please. I am still getting the hang of asking to go outside when I need to pee. That's a new one.I love to go for a walk on a leash but I also love a fenced yard to run in. I'd be happy with either or both! Hey I won't complain. My foster mom says I have the cutest smile and the best personality. Sounds like I'm a catch! Tiki is a very loving Pug mix. He is about 1 year old and about 15 lbs. He has the most adorable underbite which makes him unique! Tiki is already learning his Spanish commands of sit and stay. He is calm and listens well. He is working on house training now. He still has some pee accidents in the house but is making quick progress. He walks beautifully on leash too! Tiki loves to be outside with a canine friend and having the freedom to run around. Tiki does have some food guarding issues so he needs an adopter that can be patient and understanding and feed him in a private space. Tiki gets along well with children. Because of his food guarding issues if there are children in the home they would need to understand this issue and to give him space while eating. Tiki has hip dysplasia. He does not require any special treatment for it currently. He is currently being brought up to date on vaccinations and will be neutered soon.  show less

Toby is currently being fostered in Newmarket, Ontario.  Hello everyone! My name is Toby, I am 1 year and 3 months old, I am weighing in at 40 lbs! I have all of my vaccinations and was neutered before leaving the Dominican Republic.  I was surrendered by my previous owners because I liked to chase their chickens too much, what can I say I'm a young boy with a lot of energy to burn! I am good with other dogs and love running around and playing with them! I need another canine friend to run and play with and keep me company while you are gone. I would like to go to a home with a fenced in yard where I would be free to play off leash and explore my own area, but your fences need to be high because I am pretty clever!  The humans here always tell me how much of a love bug I am, I do love my human attention, belly rubs are my FAVOURITE! Sometimes I like to pretend I am your shadow. I am extremly smart, I would like a person who is going to keep me busy, active and challenged! I really like to learn. I am pretty high energy, using my brain lots helps to tire me out. I am really good at climbing, I need a very secure yard, or a long line to be tied, even in a fenced yard. Sometimes I get a bit silly and forget the walls are there to keep me safe. I have started training with my foster Mom and a trainer because after I got to Ontario I became a bit reactive to things. They say I am learning really quickly though, I can relax and not be on gaurd all the time. When I am adopted I can go to training with my new Mom or Dad maybe, it would be nice to learn how to work together. That would be fun to do together.  I would like to have a home without cats or kids. I am a bit too excitable at times for them. I am working hard to be ready to go to my forever home.  If you are looking for an adventure partner, I want to hike, run, explore and do new things. If you think that I would be a good fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application!  show less

Umma is being fostered in the Dominican Republic Hello pleased to meet you. They call me Umma here in my foster home. I had a family for a long time. I had a lot of babies of my own but last time I had them they took my babies and dumped me on the side of the road. My heart hurt. My sweet foster dad told me it wasn't my fault and sometimes humans behave badly. He told me I would never have any more babies and I could go live in a home that is all my own. A home where I will be the center of attention. I hope if you are reading my bio you might be willing to adopt me. Notes from rescue: Umma was dumped on the road. Umma is just 8 lbs and it appears she may have had puppies recently. She is about 4 years old. Umma will be brought up to date on her vaccinations and spayed before adoption. She is a very playful girl. She loves to play with other dogs, cats and chickens. She is a very well behaved girl. She enjoys digging at the beach but seens to know not to dig in the garden. She will bark at strangers but she is not a barker by nature. She doesn't seem to chew things she should not. She caught on to house training very quickly, although with transition to a new home and different climate she may need to learn how to ask to go outside. She lives in an open concept and has free roam to go outside as needed. She has not had any experience with a leash yet but she seems to learn very quickly. She is a very sweet girl with children. She would be an excellent family dog! show less

Update April 30, 2019,  Wannita is doing great with only one eye. She loves to be picked up and held. Each night I sit on the couch and . Wannita finds me. She walks across me and then walks on my chest and curls up. She loves when I pet her until she falls asleep. She is very gentle and loving. Will make a perfect companion! Hey everyone! My name is Wannita I am roughly 2 years old and quite the cuddle bug! I bet you have noticed my missing eye, it's okay, don't be alarmed! When I was found I was not in good shape at all, I honestly thought I was never going to be saved or find this thing called a "family" but now I am so hopeful! I had an injury to my eye and it could not be saved so the amazing DCDR crew scooped me up, took me to the vet and got me all fixed up! I don't hurt anymore!! I have been loving life here in the Dominican withmy foster mama and making friends with her cats and dogs (she likes to spoil me with ear scraches). Now that I am healthy and back to acting like my normal cuddly self, I am looking for my forever home, my place to curl up on the couch and purr the nights away! If you are looking for a new family member and would like to open your heart and home up to me, please fill out an adoption application below. I will be forever grateful and promise to repay you in head bumps and kitty kisses! show less
