Wee Ones is now accepting adoption applications for Marty.
Marty is going to need a very specific home and the family selected will be required to spend time with Marty and his trainer to learn his routine and how to deal/work on his issues.
Normally I would write up a lovely bio for the dogs that we post up. But I have decided to post what his trainer/foster had to say about Marty.
“Marty has been in foster with a trainer for numerous months now due to his quirks and the bad habits he had been allowed to practice for most of his life. He has come a LONG way with the help of training and a couple of medications that will need to be continued long term but he will also need the perfect home to ensure he continues to be successful and make good life choices.
He is a 4/5 (? Unsure of his birthday) year old male neutered Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He is a sweet independent boy. He likes human company but you will rarely find that he wants to come curl up in bed or on the couch with you. He would prefer to lay nearby on a dog bed with a toy or bone. He enjoys walking/hiking and walks well on the leash. He is also kennel trained and loves his crate.
He loves to play with both his people chasing a ball or frisbee (although he doesn’t always bring it back) as well as other playful dogs both male and female of various sizes and breeds. He can initially be a bit pushy with some other dogs until they let him know his behaviour is unacceptable. He reads and respects dog language from his peers very well.
Now, the quirks. Marty can get very overstimulated very easily and when he does he gets mouthy. He has bitten in the past more than once with very little warning while overstimulated. He needs a home with someone who can read his body language and continue to reinforce that the overstimulation will not be tolerated. As long as he stays under his threshold he is a happy bouncy friendly little guy. He also would not tolerate his collar being touched or having a leash put on when he initially came into rescue. With lots of work and rules this is something we have almost completely worked through but will need to be continued to be worked on with the help of a trainer. Until he understands that his new people also have rules for him then he may try to push his boundaries and see what he can get away with. He is very food motivated and loves to learn! He also loves food puzzle games and treat toys which help with his mental stimulation. He has been muzzle trained and wears one at the vet to be on the safe side due to a previous incident at the vet before coming into foster.
His ideal home does not include children living in the home due to a previous history of being reactive around them and the potential for children to be VERY exciting which can cause overstimulation. Children visiting are no problem as long as his new family understands he should be kennelled in a quiet area of the house when they visit to avoid any potential issues. Walking with/around children at the park has been no problem. His current foster home has a dog savy 7 year old child which there have been zero issues with. His ideal home also includes another friendly/playful dog(s) for him to play with. His new family should be prepared to do a slow transition of him into the home and let him earn access to more areas and freedom as he understands that they also have rules for him. He is not the kind of dog you can just bring home and let loose in your house to have a free for all. More specific questions can be answered for any approved applications.”
Rocky- Currently on adoption trial period
Rocky is a three year old Pug/Cavalier Cross. He weighs 39.1 lbs and could stand to lose a couple more pounds.
This sweet boy is a rare find. He loves humans of all sizes, all dogs of any size and even likes felines.
Medical: Rocky does have Epilepsy. His medication cost is approximately $60 per month. When Rocky came into care, he was experiencing 3-5 seizures a day. Rocky was started on a different seizure medication and now has been seizure free for almost 3 weeks. Rocky will need to be on seizure medications for the remainder of his life so his new owners will have to factor that cost in.
Behaviour Issues: none unless you classify his needing to be in his owners face at all times as a behaviour.
Rocky does need some more training on his leash manners. He tends to like to drag his owner around the block.
Rocky is a huge mooch. He will need to work on begging less while in the kitchen.
Rocky is the sweetest boy that just wants someone to snuggle and kiss.
His ideal family would be someone who is active. He would like to have a home that has either children or another dog for him to play with.
Bonus points if you have a fenced backyard.
Rocky does not like to be left alone at home for long periods of time. Ideally his new family would have someone around for most of the day or would be willing to enroll him in doggy daycare.
Rocky is currently located in NS.
His adoption fee is $450.
If you feel that you are the person who can offer Rocky his happily ever after, please visit our website and fill out an adoption application.
Wee Ones is now accepting adoption applications for Bentley.
Bentley is a one year old Shitzu/Maltese cross.
This young fellow is updated on all his vaccines (will require a booster for Lepto in 4 weeks), neutered and on monthly flea/tick preventive. He has been cleared by his vet for adoption.
Bentley is very active and full of energy. He does suffer from separation anxiety and will require someone who is home most of the time.
Bentley will be best suited in a home where he is the only dog. Although he does well with other dogs and cats, he prefers to have his family all to himself. Bentley will protect his love ones.
Bentley is very outgoing but it takes him awhile to warm up to new people. Bentley will need time to decompress and get use to his new family. Once he has had a chance to settle in, he will pick his person and become their shadow.
Bentley has had issues in the past with crates and he needs a home where he will not be crated. This is not negotiable.
Bentley requires a best friend who will let him snuggle up on their lap and allow him to snuggle in bed with them at night.
Bentley will require a home with no small children living in the home. He is okay with smaller visiting children but will not do well living with small children full time.
If you think that Bentley will make a great addition to your home, please visit our website and fill out an adoption application.
Bentley is currently located in NS and his adoption fee is $500.
Adoption applications close on March 2, 2024. Only the successful application will be contacted.
