Floki is over a year old lab/shep mix from Beirut.
Over the past months, Floki has been working hard on his social skills and fears, he’s come such a long way! He is slowly learning that the world is not a scary place. He will need a child-free family dedicated to his training, who will continue to teach him that he does not need to be afraid. He needs a leader!
If you are interested in adopting Floki, please fill out an adoption application found on our website www.blackdogrescue.ca
Meet Kenya! This 5 year old wire-haired terrier mix was busted out from a Quebec shelter. She's currently 45 pounds, but we're working on putting some weight on her.
She is a medium energy dog who loves to walk but then loves to nap. Her favourite place to nap is near her people. Kenya is potty trained, and walks well on a leash. Kenya can be reactive to other dogs, especially rambunctious ones, and can be choosy as to which dogs she gets along with in the home.
She does suffer from severe separation anxiety, so someone who's home a lot and willing to continue her training is required. Kenya would do well in a stable home that can provide her with routine and structure. A home without young children is needed as she can be jumpy when excited.
Please fill out an application if you’re interested!
Curtis, the friendly giant
Toronto has been captivated by Curtis’ story that broke out in the early morning of June 11th. He was found by one of our supporters, tied to a tree in a local Toronto park. All alone, in the pouring rain, covered in his own feces. We searched high and low for Curtis’ owners but were unable to locate them. We decided to take him in under our care. It soon became apparent that Curtis suffered from medical issues, he began having cluster seizures and we had no idea why. We rushed him to the vet, and he was booked for blood work and neurological testing.
As a small volunteer run rescue, a medical case like Curtis would surely take a hit on our finances, but we spared no expense. We asked our supporters for help and our community stepped up. We were able to get Curtis the best care, we ruled out a number of life threatening things such as tumors, we left no stone unturned.
After weeks of foster care, we are so happy to announce that Curtis is healthy and ready for his happily ever after. Curtis suffers from epilepsy, he will need continued medical care for the rest of his life. We have worked closely with his neurologist and we have been able to adjust his meds in order to stop the cluster seizures. This is easily manageable through daily medication; he will live a long and happy life.
Curtis would do well with a patient family who will set a routine and schedule for him. He is very lazy and enjoys quiet afternoons sunbathing. He is dog and cat friendly; in fact, he would do well with a fur-sibling to keep him company. He would need a strong handler simply due to his size, he is strong but gentle. Curtis is a big boy and does not always know his size, for this reason, we do not recommend small children under 8 years old.
Curtis will need daily medication to prevent his seizures. If you are not willing to invest in his health, Curtis is not the dog for you.
Please share Curtis’ story and help us find his perfect family. This gentle giant deserves a happy ending. If you are interested in adopting Curtis, please fill out our adoption application found on our website.
