Meet Dolly - Adoption Pending

Dolly is a sweet 1 year old terrier mix who came all the way to Canada from Greece in March 2018. She was rescued from the streets and brought to a loving family. Dolly became a misfit after there was a serious illness in her new family and moved into her foster home in September.

When Dolly was first brought to her foster family she was taken to the vet to get checked out. We’ve discovered that she’s allergic to some meat proteins, which showed in the form of yeast in one ear and toes. This is easily managed with cleaning her ears and feeding her the Rayne kangaroo diet which can be found at the vet or pet food stores.

Dolly is a fantastic, smart, loving little girl who loves to play, snuggle and give kisses after you come back from being away. She is shy at first but connects to her people quickly and hard. We’ve been told that she has separation anxiety in the form of chewing. She has only chewed paper towel and gotten into accessible garbage twice but hasn’t damaged anything when left alone for a few hours. We have been told that she has chewed her kennel when left alone in it.

Dolly is very spunky and has energy to burn but can also relax beside you when you want to rest. She would make a great hiking/running partner! Her foster family is told that she’s a runner but this hasn’t been seen as Dolly is very attached to her people and doesn’t seem to want to leave their side. However, because she has been known in her previous home to run and is able to jump high, we don’t recommend letting this little girl off leash unless she’s in a closed in space.

Dolly seems her happiest and most confident when playing with her fur siblings and would probably excel at doggy daycare! She does play rough and might not be a good fit for a family with an older/smaller dog that doesn’t enjoy rougher play. So, ideally her new home would have a well-balanced dog who loved to play with her plus a commitment to continue her socialization. She chases cats so we are looking for a home without a cat.

She’s been around young kids and hasn’t minded them patting her but like any dog that has lived on the streets she might be unpredictable. She also has some food aggression from having to fight for her food but she has only ever growled at her fur siblings twice and this is simply fixed by feeding them in separate areas. She hasn’t ever reacted to her foster parents when handling food and is extremely gentle at taking treats.

Dolly will make an amazing addition to the perfect family! Could that family be yours?
