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.
Loyal Rescue of Peterborough, Ontario (east of Toronto) recently took in a dear little 6-year-old female Shih Tzu named Babs.
Babs was found as a stray and immediately seemed quite friendly. She loves attention along with a good head and/or ear rub. In her foster home, she enjoys playing with the other small dogs and greets visitors in a friendly manner. She leaps up happily whenever she hears the words ‘outside’ or ‘treat.’
“Babs has adjusted to her new surroundings and foster family very quickly,” said her foster mom. “The first night, Babs took to me immediately, made herself comfortable on my bed and slept well through the night. Within a couple of days, Babs has learned to walk on a leash and heads toward the door when she is ready to go inside.”
She understands some simple commands and is “comfortable around wheelchairs and scooters.” Babs gets along well with dogs but it is not know how she reacts around cats or children.
“Babs has become part of our family and although we will be sad to see her go, I know she will be just as happy and loved in her forever home!”
She is housetrained, up-to-date with routine shots and spayed. To learn more about her, email Loyal Rescue at info@loyalrescue. Please put Pet Inquiry: ‘Babs ID 1222’ in the subject line.
LOYAL Rescue is a foster-based rescue. They do not operate a shelter. Each pet is in a private home. Once you filled out the adoption application, they will arrange for a volunteer to contact you to conduct the telephone interview.
