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.
C4P Animal Rescue of Toronto, Ontario would like to introduce Rusty and Bear 4-year-old brothers that have been called ‘Gentle Giants.’
These two boys are adult, extra large yellow Labrador Retriever mixes. Obviously, they are a bonded pair that needs a home together. They will keep each other company when you are not home.
Due to their size, they also need room to roam, so they get adequate exercise. Both are currently overweight. Rusty is 130 pounds and Bear is 100 pounds. Good quality natural food and regular moderate exercise should help them to drop some pounds and will surely affect their long-term health.
They are now in a rescue in Windsor because their family moved and could not take them. Their former family describes them as “sweet and affectionate.” The family also stated that Rusty is good on a leash and likes to play with toys, while Bear is good in the car and knows such commands as sit, come and down. He is afraid of loud noises as well.
Their adoption will includes 45 days of Ontario SPCA Pet Insurance, standard vaccinations (excluding rabies), microchip identification, neuter, flea treatment, de-worming, heartworm testing and three training sessions.
For more information or to adopt Rusty and Bear, call 519.966.5751. You can also email Deanna Maerz at email@example.com at C4P Animal Rescue.
