Dogs Available for Adoption

Dream


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Dream.  She is a 9 month old Aussie Shepherd/Retriever.  She weighs 37lbs and has a medium length wavy coat.  She was found as a stray and ended up in a high kill shelter.

This pup is amazing.  She has so many qualities of the Golden Retriever.  She loves to carry anything around in her mouth, she is quiet, loves attention from people, great with all dogs and did well around the shelter cats.

Dream has a great appetite so her food is measured out twice daily.  She is quite active but not in a destructive way.  She loves playing outside with the other dogs in the foster home.  She is extremely gentle with all. She is excellent in the car, doesn't do too badly in a body harness and leash and is crate trained .  She needs to be crated at this point when the family is not home as she is still in the chewing stage.   We learned that she knew how to lay down on command at her photoshoot. 

Her ideal family is one with children, lots of family activities and preference will be given to those families with another socialized resident canine.

Dream is spayed,  fully vaccinated, Flex4 tested negative, on flea and Heartworm prevention, and dewormed.

Stella


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Stella.  We believe she is a wonderful mix of pointer/hound.
Stella is 8 months old and has a short hair coat. She weighs 42lbs .  She was surrendered to the high kill shelter by her owners as she was too active for them.  

Stella is a super sweet dog.  She has zero aggression tendencies.  She is very quiet, which she gets from her Pointer mix traits.  She is only vocal sometimes when playing with the other dogs.  She loves all dogs, regardless of size, sex or age.  She is not a bully at all.  The shelter tested her with cats and she does not like them.  

Stella is very affectionate and will kiss everyone for as long as you let her.  She is timid at first but within 24 hours she gained trust of her foster family.  Stella is incredibly gentle, slightly hand shy.  She loves cuddles.  She has the appetite of a hound so her food is measured out twice daily.

This gal came into our care housebroken.  She loves to play outside, though will need a coat in the cooler weather because of her short coat.  Stella is very good in the vehicle.  She is apprehensive on a leash so we don't believe she had much exposure to it.  We recommend a body harness and a lead for any of our dogs for full control.  She is crate trained but doesn't require one.

The ideal family is one where she is given the time and patience to trust and train with her daily.  She won't be able to be walked by a child as being a hound she will have a prey drive.   Children will be ideal but perhaps older ones would be best.  Younger children can be loud at times when excited, which might frighten her.  Priority will be given to those applicants with another socialized resident canine.     

Stella is spayed, 4DX tested negative, fully vaccinated, on heartworm and on flea prevention.  She is also microchipped.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Stella.

Tawny was found as a stray.  She has a lovely temperament.  She enjoys playing with other dogs immensely.  She is amid energy dog asking asshe gets enough playtime with other dogs.  If she doesn't get playtime with it her pooches, she will dug iut if boredom.  If she sees a squirrel, her energy level magically changes to one that us high level!  She will try anything to get at them  so it is for this reason we would not trust her with cats.

Tawny is very gentle despite her size.  She takes treats very gently and loves children.  Tawny loves to be hugged and cuddled and will give back gentle kisses.   She gets along well with the other dogs in the foster home.  Tawny us housebroken and crate trained.  She does quite well tethered in the vehicle.

Lexi is great with other dogs.  She was tested with cats at the shelter and we were told she was afraid of cats therefore passed the cat testing.

Ace


Oh our Ace is definitely a foster favourite.  He is a 2 year old Pointer Mix.  He has a short coat and weighs 61lbs.  He was found as a stray.

Ace is just such a love.  He is so wanting to bond with a family.  He tries so hard to be a good boy.  He is very smart and is learning quickly the manners needed to be the best dog ever!  He absolutely is a cuddle magnet.   He is great with other dogs.   He curls upon the couch and snuggles right in with his family.   He is a very quiet dog and is crate trained.

Ace is a minimal shedder.   He has a good appetite and eats twice daily.  He has learned too play with the other dogs.  He is a good boy in the car.  We are not sure if he likes cats but loves children.  He takes treats nicely and has no food aggression.  He will need work on his leash and body harness and reminders not to countersurf.  He is housebroken of course!

The ideal home for Ace would be one where the family spends a lot of time with him.  Applicants with a resident dog will be given priority.
