Rescue Me ID: 16-01-13-00620Lily (female)

Cavalier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Abused/Neglected, Aggressive 

    Lily, is a damaged dog. We pulled her from a municipal pound in Thunder Bay. She can be sweet and loving, but has a tendancy to be reactive when touched in her back end. If anything grazes that area ( a blade of grass, or feather) she will bite at her back end. She does ask and crave human companionship and in this sense can be loving, it is when she gets into a state that you have to redirect her focus. She walks well on a leash, likes car rides and likes to be with her person. The difficult part (as she has been in two foster homes) is that something clicks in her brain and she becomes reactive. She is currently living in a ... (Read More)boarding kennel. She needs a patient owner, someone that is willing to spend time with her and let her be; just be and be loved. I don't think this girls knows how to be loved. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-12-14-00130Pepper (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Pepper is an Australian cattle dog, Boston terrier mix, who needs a loving and patient home. She loves obedience classes and has been easy to train- and great at tricks! She is also good with kids- and loves playing with our two young boys. At the end of the day she loves nothing more than curling up beside us for a cuddle. She is funny and quirky with lots of personality- and we love all these great things about her. Unfortunately, she also has a few issues that our busy family is having a hard time dealing with. We brought her into our family when she was 8 months old- and we think she was not socialized as a puppy. Pepper exhibits ... (Read More)reactive behaviours- she is often nervous of new people. As a result she will run and bark aggressively at them- and it is hard to get her to stop. She hasn't done more than bark at anyone, it just looks intimidating. Additionally, she loves playing with other dogs but at times gets very boisterous with her playing, it can be tough to get her to tone it down. I believe with consistent work these behaviours could be reduced. She has been to a reactive rover class that provided techniques for dealing with these behaviours and we have seen progress- however, we are finding her training, working full time and taking care of young children overwhelming. She is a medium to high energy dog- and requires daily exercise. Is good on walks, playing fetch or tug- of- war, and if you have a safe place for her to run- she loves to run (and is good about staying close to her person). If you are looking for a loyal, smart and loving friend, then please consider Pepper. (Less)

See I am very good at reading my humans and if I sense there is any hesitation from you people around me I may react fearfully because I feel unsure of your motives.

Then you see me light up, I love to play ball games and I am very affectionate and bouncy once I trust you ... (Read More)I am most reactive to the moods of the other dogs around me as well, so for the most part I enjoy playing alongside the more confident dogs in the other runs here at the shelter.

Yet, sometimes I can be shy and afraid of new people See, I was all cute and squishy and loveable as a baby but I wasn't trained and socialized properly as I grew older, so now I have all this pent up energy and it makes me do all kinds of crazies when I get excited, like jumping and mouthing my humans when I want attention and to play and then yell at the top of my lungs when my every whim and fancy isn't being catered to! I love to play and I play ... (Read More)very rough but when my humans show me kindly and gently, how to play properly and how to behave, I listen, I really want to learn and I am a very easy boy to please I play rough with smaller dogs and because I need all attention to myself for now, I prefer I am prince of my castle I just want to be loved and believe you me, when I have exhausted myself out from playing and exercising a lot, yes I do have an off button, I become calm and just want to cuddle with my human and get belly rubs. I need lots of guidance in proper behaviour, potty and crate training and daily exercise with plenty of play time and when it's time to snooze, I want to be right there with you lazing on our couch. If you are committed to loving me all the way and not just falling for my cuteness overload, then please email me at rescuegroup@lchs.ca for further information on requirements for adopting me Love Tyson (Less)

    Hello!! I am Jenny ....and before you go falling in love with just my looks, I am scared of you so don't rush in towards me to love me up so quickly. I play hard to get so you earn my respect and affection! But deep down you know what'|.I am a happy, silly, goofy girl who loves to play fetch, hide and seek and all kinds of games with my human once I trust you completely. If you still scare me when I look at you, trust me I will tell you. I will yell at you to keep your distance just so we respect each other's boundaries.

Not before then, sorry, just being honest up front I do protect my little home so I will need reassurance from my humans that it is safe to go near the door and see who is visiting. My fear with newcomers will need to be managed by my new family so that I realize that its only my new friends who are dropping in to admire me and earn my friendship I am a clean girl and will let tell you when I need to go out potty. I am not keen on other dogs hogging my humans' attention from me so I do need to be queen of my castle. Also, sorry as wiggly as I get and look so adorable, because of my fear of strangers I cannot have little humans around me. So with all this info I just gave you, do you believe you are my forever family? If so, email me at rescuegroup@lchs.ca and we can make plans to get to know each other Love Jenny (Less)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Hi I am Harley! As you can see I am obviously very handsome. I have loads of energy and I am super smart with some very special needs. Despite the fact that I really do love my humans, I don't like my personal space intruded on. I have a fear of sudden movements and changes around me, whether around my body area or within my home. So, for example I get very reactive when visitors come knocking at my door. Yes, I know this is quite a challenging weakness but if you have the patience to guide me, positively, so that my fearful reaction is minimized, then I will do my best to trust that I and you, my pack, are safe and I don't need to get ... (Read More)so overwhelmed. I want to please and I know I have so much to offer and in my excitement to show you how awesome I really am, I seem to be 'my way or the highway' kinda guy Listen, I am very intelligent and I like to play games where I can think and problem solve. None of this just run and retrieve the ball kinda stuff for me, no sirree! That's for the other dogs, not that I am high and mighty, but I know what I like. The other pups want to just have fun and be silly, which is great but you gotta move on from that into more advanced play some times, right? I am wiser and more interested in playing smarter games! Oh but I do so enjoy being outside with the other dogs and I am always friendly with them as I run alongside them in the other runs and watch them get all silly like puppies and I wait patiently for my human to come back to me so we can engage in more advanced mind stimulating games ;) We are looking for a very specific quieter home, where my family will continue to guide me on how to respond to activity around my personal space which includes my home and myself. Due to my special needs I am asking that my new family be adults only please. To meet me in person if you want to be my forever family then please email me at rescuegroup@lchs.ca Love Harley (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Canada
    Dogs can make good pets in Canada if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Canada Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs are red-green colorblind. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
