Trained and ready to go (Adopted)
Thought to be a Shepherd Husky mix due to its brown/red/tan colouring this two year old male (neutered) would make a wonderful pet. Mid-sized, he is house trained, and as friendly as can be. Just call the South Dundas Animal Shelter to meet him 613-543-2980
Yes, the beautiful shepherd mix is still at the Shelter. It is a concern when an older dog is rescued, but most times, after they are adopted their new families report the wonderful out-pouring of love they receive from these sad animals who suffer so from being removed from longtime homes. This dog is a female, (4-5 years old maybe, no noticeable greying so not that old). She is so calm, so very friendly and so needs a loving home. She is house-trained is either up with tail waggin’ for a treat or lying down despite our best efforts to get her to sit for a photo.
This yellow lab mix is a male (not neuteured), beautiful golden in colour. Needs some manners training. Very nice, and friendly…and ate nicely from our hands. Mid-size dog, he would benefit from some tender loving care and some training-a couple of years old.
Included are some of the photos taken of the dogs showing their appreciation of the treats the South Dundas Pet Rescue group provides them with when trying to get their photos. Just shows how much fun these pups can bring to one's life. In the final photo the yellow lab mix really shows his appreciation…as he is all shook up…
A 'South Dundas Pet Rescue' Facebook page has now been launched. Please check it out and if you have the time and would like to assist in the adoption of these dogs please add it to your timeline…getting the information and the dog's pictures out there is a big part of this effort.
Expected to be ready for adoption, hopefully by next week are a white Shepherd (traumatized by the death of its elderly owner and the loss of its forever home) and two Huskies (both now homeless due to unpreventable circumstances of their family-if they could be adopted together, that would probably be fantastic).
Nine dogs at the Shelter.
Three dogs were adopted the over the weekend, including the bull mastiff and the puppy with the spotted feet featured last week. Still looking for homes are special needs American bulldog and the wonderful hound mix. To see this week’s featured dogs or any of the dogs at the South Dundas Animal Shelter please call Kevin at 613-543-2980. There are no set adoption fees, but food/cash donations are expected and determined by the size of the dog and its length of stay.
Donations of blankets, towells, dog dishes, collars and beds can be dropped off at the Morrisburg Animal Hospital. Cleaning supplies and equipment are also appreciated. Cash donations to assist in the purchase of food and/or a soon to be launched South Dundas Pet Adoptions committee project to enlarge the current eight bed (indoor) kennel can be made to the municipality of South Dundas. Cheques must be made out to the municipality and clearly marked for the South Dundas Animal Shelter.
