Luca is a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois X who hails from Dog Tales in King City. I don’t know a lot about her early years, but I do know that she spent more than half of her first three years in shelters in Israel and at sanctuary here. Luca suffered from serious fear aggression, and was, therefore, difficult to home. We met a couple of years ago, and became best friends. She remains quite reactive toward men, and dogs with a little too much spirit, but she is so much better than she was a couple of years ago. I suspect her fears will always be there, but we at least manage them; I think she enjoys her life. Once she is comfortable with someone, and takes them into her fold, a sweeter dog you will not find. May 20, 2018 will mark our 2nd Anniversary together.

Thought you might enjoy my puppet Zeus. He was taken off the streets in Greece. He was placed in a shelter he got lishmeana from sand fleas and was moved to foster for 1 year. Then I found him on pet finder. He was flown in from Athens Greece. I honestly cannot praise this wonderful bundle of pure joy enough! He came off an 8 hour plane ride wagging his tail and hasn’t stopped smiling. He makes us smile everyday. The joy he brings to us is immeasurable. His disability (tripod) doesn’t even slow him down. He is a perfect balance for our other mill rescue Lulu who is shy with strangers. He has even moved her towards people more than she ever has before. OK my gush is over.

This is Hal and Ody. I adopted Hal 10 years ago as a puppy. He is incredibly loving and loyal and has been my best friend from day one. Ody came to me three years ago. He had been badly abused and was terrified. Hal showed him how to be a dog and how to play and has been a wonderful mentor to Ody. Ody and Hal now help foster pups adjust to their new life in Canada, often in the first home they have ever known. They both amaze me every day.

This is Chloe. She’s 12, and her old age is starting to show. She’s still mischievous, and even though her hips are terrible, she climbs up on the couch where she’s not allowed. She’s a sweetheart, and she tolerates her rambunctious little human brothers in exchange for stealing their snacks once in a while. She does what she wants, even though she does it slowly now.

I wanted to send in about my dog Jada. She was my best friend and partner in crime. She travelled across the country with me multiple times and rarely left my side until she had to get put down 6 years from cancer. I’ve never known a love like hers before or since. She was truely one of a kind.

This is my beagle-basset hound Bella. I love this picture of her because it makes me laugh. She is not the most photogenic dog but she is very sweet and loving. We rescued her from a farm in Ohio 7 years ago, and when we first got her she was very shy and did not want to interact with us. But now she is very comfortable with our family and is not afraid to bug us for attention and food. She loves taking walks in the woods and eating human food even though it makes her sick. We love her very much.

Lila came into our lives one year as a rescue. She is elderly and her previous owner relinquished her to local pound. Lila was saved by a rescue and we took her into our home to live out the rest of her retirement days.

Lately, Lila has not been well. She is having mobility issues and we are in the process of getting her laser therapy, chiropractic treatments and massage, on top of pain relieving medications. She has captured our hearts and we are dearly blessed to have with us.

My dog “Jaguar” passed away two years ago suddenly at the very young age of 3. She was the centre of our universe and we still miss her very much.

Emmett was rescued as both a stray and older dog from a reserve in northern Quebec that probably shouldn’t have seen his 2nd or third birthday but did and was then diagnosed with a tumour only months after we got him. We had him treated and he’s been ok since!
