Posted Breed: Coonhound. A Delcie & Lilly update: If you like hounds, you’ll love the “Houndie Girls”. They have been in our home as fosters since November 2013. While they are around 14 years old, they didn’t ‘get the memo’ that they are senior dogs. They love a good walk, just like their 5 year old foster sister. In fact, Delcie bounces around like a puppy whenever the leash is brought out. They live for their walks and enjoy backyard time, although preferably with a sweater during a winter like the last one! In our home the houndies are the 2nd half to a foursome, and get along well with our two dogs, one senior and one youngster. They aren’t keen on public ‘meet-ups’ at the dog park or HBR events. Like many floppy eared breeds, the girls are plagued by chronic ear issues. Regular cleaning and strategic upkeep seems to maintain their comfort, but the amount of scarring makes for a chronic condition. They are not keen on ear cleaning or nail trimming. The “Houndies” maintain their hounding ways, engaging in the odd sampling of garbage if available and love table scraps, taking advantage of any opportunity. They enjoy engaging in regular ‘choir practice’, howling in unison with foster dad, and make for a great alarm system in the house! The ladies would prefer to lounge on the furniture, but the foster parents encourage dog beds, and the girls oblige. “Hounding Hour” can happen anywhere, they are happiest when with their people, relaxing or walking. These two ladies have personality plus and are truly lovable, Lilly waves with her paw when you come to talk to her, Delcie wags the tip of her tail when spoken (or sung) to. Perhaps you would like a “Hounding Hour” at your house? Delcie and Lilly would be happy to join you.

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: English Bulldog. Hi. I'm Henry. I'm a middle aged English bulldog rescued from a puppy mill. I am very friendly with everybody and love to be shown affection. I am great with other dogs and kids of all ages. I haven't been around cats but am pretty sure I would love them too. I am housetrained and crate trained. I sleep in my crate at night. I lick my paw a lot and am on some medicine that helps me to stop itching between my toes. I really need to be with a person that is home enough to let me outside a lot. Now and then I might have an accident so I like to be outside right before bed and first thing in the morning. The earlier the better. If you are interested in me I promise to give you unconditional love if you promise the same. Love from Henry.* Henry would do best as the only dog in the home*Henry like most Bulldogs has dry eye and will require drops for this.Henry is being fostered in Barrie

Oscar is a 6 year old boy who has been let down by his people. He is learning structure and boundaries at his foster home and will need a strong human leader who is willing to continue his training. Older children and a submissive canine partner is all he asks for.Foster mom writes us this:Meet Oscar. He has come LEAPS AND BOUNDS since coming to my house. He is spoiled. I've been using young living essential oils on him and everyone who sees him who hasn't seen him since I got him notices how great he looks. I've been using t-away for any trauma he has been thru and peace and calming for his nerves. I use many others but these are two I use regularly on him!!!! What a good boy and he loves the oils haha!HOME RECOMMENDATION FOR OSCARCHILDREN OVER 12CALM SUBMISSIVE CANINE PARTNEROscar is being fostered in Brooklin

      Posted Breed: Mastiff. *COMING SOON* ALMOST AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTIONHi I'm Khali and If you are into naps I might be just the girl for you! Don't get me wrong everyone enjoys a walk around the neighbourhood and my leash manners are fantastic, but I prefer to leave most of that "exercise" stuff to the younger generation! I really would much rather hang out around the house with my people and am also good with other calm easygoing dogs. I'm not a big fan of the cats they have in my foster family's house (although they keep insisting that they are allowed to be here) I'm pretty sure I'd like to chase them out so if you are for me you probably won't have any of those "felines" in your house! My foster family has given me a nice cushy bed in the living room and another in my bedroom since I have very nice manners and do not even try to get up on the furniture (I think it's too much like work to climb up). If I may make one request I much prefer to have free run in the house or have a room of my own, and get quite upset if locked in a crate...those are for dogs not ladies like me!! The great thing about us "mature" ladies is we do not chew on things like puppies do, I certainly would never mess in the house and I'm more than happy to snooze and take care of the house while you are away at work earning cookie money for me!! Speaking of food I have excellent table manners and have no problem with people being near me when I'm eating, and am happy to do anything you ask to get treats! I do love having company young and old and win the heart of everyone I meet, my foster mom says I am just such a sweet dog she can't imagine how anyone could give me away. Oh and Shhh don't believe what they say I'm not 10...I'm 1, with 9 years of experience :)KHALI IS BEING FOSTERED IN~ Penetanguishene

He enjoys walks, car rides and adores human attention. He has lived peacefully with other small dogs but he can be reactive to larger dogs or dogs that are highly active and noisy. He would do best as an only pet or in a home with a calm, quiet smaller dog.Pete has not had experience living with cats or small children, but since he can be reactive to some dogs, especially those with high energy, we believe it would be best to place him in a calm home without cats or young children.If you are interested in Pete, please complete an adoption application. If selected for an interview and meeting it will be necessary to visit Pete in his foster home. We do not do same day adoptions. Home and reference checks must be completed prior to adoption finalization.Additional protocol information can be found in the adoption contract and home check list available at the bottom of the rescue page.http://www.frenchbulldogfanciers.com/rescue_info/116.htmlAnd link to his FB page.http://www.facebook.com/peteytheoldeenglishbulldogge

I love joining my foster family on longwalks, shopping at pet stores, playing with my stuffy chicken or just sitting on the porchwatching the world go by.

I am happy to be active, cuddle on the couch orsit quietly beside you.I like to go out with them to explore the world. I am comfortable and well behaved when visitingfriends, in crowds at markets, walking along busy streets or hiking trails in the forest. I love tomeet and greet both people and dogs and I am always complemented on my lovely doggymanners and good looks. People have mistaken me for the dog in Disney’s Homeward Bound.They think I’m a celebrity!I know my basic commands and I am a quick learner. My foster mom crate trained me in 1week! I love my airline crate and often sit in it quietly waiting for food or to see if the treat fairyleft me a little something. I will do anything for a bit of food!If you are looking for a quiet, well mannered, super smart and loving doggy, I’m your boy!DUE TO MY SIZE I WILL ONLY GO TO A HOME WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 12ALPHA IS CURRENTLY ON PHENOBARBITAL FOR EPILEPSY HIS DOSE IS 3 PILLS TWICE PER DAY AND IS ROUGHLY $83 FOR TWO MONTHS *Alpha is being fostered in Petawawa*

      rescue
      Breed: Bulldog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Newcastle, ON
      Posted Breed: English Bulldog. *COMING SOON*Hi my name is Sampson I am a handsome English Bulldog (if I don't say so myself) I am healthy and active for a Bulldog and love to run and play. I especially love durable squeaky toys and sticks. I take my cues from my foster pack, and if they are active, so am I, but when it is time to sit on the couch and rest, I will snore next to you for hours. I am quite cuddly and I am happiest when I am lying next to you. The past that I've had has been a little shaky, which makes me nervous when I'm left alone, but we're working on that. Foster mom stays home with me and I really enjoy that. I am a very emotional boy, and it takes me about 10 minutes to settle down. I may cry a little, but after that, I settle down and I am very happy as long as I can see you I love going on car rides and I love to ride in the front seat. However, I have learned very quickly how to share the backseat with my foster brother, who is a yellow lab. I am a very smart young boy, and I will do almost anything for a liver treat. I sometimes get distracted when I am playing with other dogs. I am getting better at walking, and my new harness is great. I have learned how to step into it all by myself. I like an adult person to walk me as I am very strong! I am a great house-dog, and I have never had any accidents. I know how to ask to go to the bathroom, which I learned within 12 hours of being in my foster home! I learned the routine from my foster brother, who I have no problem with being the leader of the pack. If you want to vacuum, I will have to be outside, as I really hate the noise. You won't have to vacuum much though, as I don't shed a lot. If you want to use the hose, I will have to be inside, as I have had bad experiences with being sprayed in the past. I will make it up to you by keeping the backyard squirrel-free! If you have doggie neighbours, you will have to have very secure fences as I can slip underneath and will escape to go have some fun. Foster family doesn't have kids, but when I walk near the school, I love to sit nicely and give them kisses. I also ignore cats, so I would have no problem living with them. I am a friendly, happy boy who has a great temperament. I will learn the rules of your house quickly, and I would be a great dog for a family who would love to take me everywhere!* SAMPSON IS BEING FOSTERED IN GUELPH*
