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 kind of funky and then suddenly I wake up and I am exhausted. I overheard them talking after they 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 "seizure" since. My favorite thing is my pillow and my bed and if you'd be willing to give me belly scratches or give me a brush that would be heaven. I am not a huge fan of when people move too quick. I'm just the kind of girl who needs a little time to trust. I was on the streets for a long time and it's 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 a lot. 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 epileptic. 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 (D.O.B - June 15, 2012). 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 7 months old (D.O.B January 6, 2019) 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 persistent 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 socialize 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 was that scared, I nipped at people. Then they had to send me away because they were worried I would go from nipping to biting 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 overwhelmed 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. Ivy 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 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 fostered 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've had a lot of changes in my life lately and I won't lie, I kind of like it. I was born on the street and I have lived there since my mom left me. I never had a human to call my own and no one 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 Coconut 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. 13 months old (D.O.B - July 8, 2018) and 35 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

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. Luckily 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. I now jump up on my foster mom's lap, that is actually really nice. I have learned I love to cuddle with kids! I will allow her now to pick me up for a couple of minutes, also not bad at all. I think I could get used to this. I might give a little love bite to show how much I like it. I actually really like kids, dogs and cats now! 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. I am completely litter box trained.  Look at my video and you will see how cute and playful I am. I have been in Ontario for a couple of weeks. 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

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 Republic. 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 rescue: 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. 7 months old (D.O.B - January 1, 2019) and is in much better condition. She is all cleaned up (fleas and ticks are gone), has started her vaccinations and been spayed. 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 is currently being fostered in the Dominican Republic. Max was taken in as a very young pup by the Turkish Survivor Crew and he lived with the nightguard for 2 years. When they left the area, they also left Max and other dogs. Poor Max was so confused but also loyal and stayed at the little guard shack for 2 weeks waiting for them to return. A couple of kind souls brought him food once a day until they finally rescued him and brought him to us. A few days later, the guard shack was taken down by unknown people. Max would have literally been left with nothing! Such a sweet loyal boy deserves better! Max is around 2 1/2 years old (1/10/2017) and 19.8 lbs. He is neutered and brought up to date on his vaccinations for his forever home. He does alert to pee outside but is not yet fully housetrained. He requires someone with patience who is willing to help him with this. We believe if he has good access to a yard that would change. Max's ideal forever home requires a securely fenced yard, as he will try to escape. He has it in his head to find his missing friends. Unknown with young children or cats. Max gets along best with submissive dogs. He does not enjoy dogs that try to be dominant. He loves to be around his owner chilling out quietly. He is extremely quiet and is getting more interested in other dogs as we work on socialization. He loves to go for long walks. Loves belly rubs and being brushed. He would do best with an owner that isn't absent all day as he gets worried that he has been left again. He is a wonderful, loyal and all-around great dog for someone willing to bond with him. show less

Maya is being fostered in the Dominican Republic.  Maya was a happy street dog who was pregnant with 10 puppies. Someone took her and sold her puppies. She was spayed when we discovered a sticker tumor. She had her rounds of chemo therapy and she has a clean bill of health now. But after spending several months with her foster mom, she can't go back on the street.  Maya is a well-behaved girl who is very eager to learn and to please people. She is stunningly beautiful with the most unique, yellow eyes. She will bark if others start, but by herself she is pretty good. She is still young and can chew on things if they are left laying around. She will try to hold it, but she isn't completely house trained yet. She is working hard on it. Maya gets along very well with male dogs. She gets along with some female dogs; however, Maya will need to be the dominant female in the household. Maya does not enjoy cats or chickens! She would need a home with neither please!  Maya has never been around children. Maya is used to being chained in the yard. She would love to have a fenced yard to run around in but she would be ok on a tie out with walks or runs. Maya is 2 years old (D.O.B - 03/04/2017) and about 60 lbs. She is spayed, healthy, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and ready to find her forever home.  show less

Ranger is being fostered in Ancaster, Ontario near Hamilton Ranger is a six-year-old (D.O.B - 08/24/2013)Cockapoo and is a local surrender to the Ontario chapter. Ranger was spoiled rotten at his initial home but was never taught boundaries. He was having behaviour issues because of this. He was surrendered so that he can find the perfect home and live his best life with an owner who can continue to teach him boundaries and love him forever.   Ranger is 8 kg, up to date on vaccinations and neutered. Ranger has possessive aggression. He has been doing training with his foster Mom and has come a very long way. He would benefit from continued training in his new home in order to understand his limits in his new environment. He needs an experienced owner who is willing to continue to teach him healthy boundaries. If you do not understand possessive aggression, please reach out and you can speak with his foster for details. Ranger is doing very well in his new environment and is a really fun pup to have around! Ranger gets along with other dogs. He does try to be dominant but once shown his boundaries does well. He would do best in a home without children and cats. Ranger requires a fenced yard in order to get lots of exercise. Lack of exercise may have also contributed to Ranger's behaviour. Since he is enjoying more freedom outdoors, he is a very happy boy. This will need to be part of his forever home as well. Ranger is a boy that needs a consistent routine in order to thrive. When there is a lot of change he stresses and it shows in his behaviour. With consistency in his day to day life Ranger will make a wonderful forever pet for someone.  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 with my foster mama and making friends with her cats and dogs (she likes to spoil me with ear scratches). 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
