The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around the Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
Speaking of Dogs Rescue in Toronto, Ontario recently took in a little Pomeranian named Pixie.
“This little animated cutie is really coming out of her shell in foster care”, says her foster mom.
Pixie is 5 years old, loves people and likes to be with those who care for her. She enjoys her time outdoors and going for short walks but she is also happy inside curling up in someone’s lap.
“She can get a little bossy and assertive with other animals, especially around food and attention from her people but currently, she is living with three other dogs and two cats,” she says.
Her foster mom adds that Pixie has an autoimmune condition that has flared up and was treated successfully. Anyone interested in adopting this little sweetie will be given full information about her condition and the procedures that were implemented by the veterinarian.
Speaking of Dogs Rescue is dedicated to helping dogs find their forever homes. The organization also offers seminars and workshop forums to help educate and enlighten people about dogs.
Adoption applicants will be screened for suitability and compatibility, as well as criteria related to care and commitment. After an initial interview, you will be asked to provide references and agree to a home check prior to the dog being placed with you.
