Sally- 10 Year Old Yorkie- ADOPTED!

Sweet little Sally was a stray that found herself at the shelter with little hope of adoption due to her age. She is a true lap dog and loves nothing more than being held by her person. She is being fostered with kids and another dog and is great with both. Sally is in the midst of being housetrained, but it will be a task that her adopters will have to continue working on. She is non-destructive in the home and still has plenty of love and life in her. Sally has had all her vaccinations and a complete dental with extractions.

Heidi- 10 Year Old Lab Mix- ADOPTED!

Heidi was dropped at the high kill shelter by owners who no longer had time for her. She’s one of the sweetest and gentlest dogs we have had in care. She is well behaved, respectful of boundaries and other animals and very low maintenance. Heidi is good with people of all ages, gets along well with dogs and cats and enjoys being with people, though she can be a little shy at first. She has no behavioural issues, knows basic commands and asks for permission before climbing onto the couch to snuggle. She is exuberant at the beginning of walks but settles into a nice pace. Heidi is spayed, up to date on all shots, tested negative for heart worm and is in otherwise great health. This loving senior deserves a wonderful forever home to live out her golden years.

Pacey- 5 year old Chi/Terrier Mix- ADOPTED!

Wow is the perfect word to describe this sweet little guy! He came to Ottawa Dog Rescue from the shelter where his time was quickly running out. Pacey is a very friendly and laid back guy, who is great with people and dogs. He’s a dream to walk on-leash and he does the funniest trick for a treat – he spins, stands on his back legs, then sits to give a paw all in one sequence. You can’t imagine how cute it is!! He will be seeing the vet shortly for his exam and dental and will then be ready to find his perfect forever home.

Harry- 2 yrd Old Yorkie- ADOPTED!

Little Harry came to us from the shelter where he was a stray. He was a complete mess of matts and dirt but underneath it all was a happy, affectionate and energetic boy who loves to play and snuggle. Toys, bones and fetching balls are a few of his favorite things, as well as people and kids. He likes to play with other dogs, but he is feisty and will not back down from another overly dominant male. He could learn to live with cats, and he is crate and house trained. He is neutered, heartworm negative and current on his vaccinations.

Piper- 5 month Collie/Shepherd Mix- ADOPTED!

Adoption Donation: $500.00

This sweet girl came to us when her time was running out at the shelter. She is a happy, excited and playful puppy. Like any puppy, she needs to work on her manners and learn not to jump on people or pull on her leash. Piper will need an active home that is willing to do some basic training with her. She enjoys playing with other dogs but needs a slow and calm introduction. When adopted, Piper will be placed on a spay contract and she will be spayed at 6 months of age. ODR will cover the cost.

Housetrained: Yes

Crate trained: Yes

Good with Dogs: Yes

Good with Cats: Yes

Good with Kids: Unknown but because she jumps, she would do better with older children

Carter- 2.5 year old Boston Terrier Mix-Adopted!

Carter came to us as a medical case after sustaining trauma from being hit by a car. His owners dumped him at the shelter as they didn’t want to pay for his vet care. We took him straight to our vet and received wonderful news. He had no broken bones or fractures and only minor nerve damage that makes his head twitch once in a while. Our vet does not anticipate any long term problems. He is very affectionate, curious, and loves to run. He is great with kids and other dogs and would love to find an active family of his very own.

Meet Hunter! This little guy is quite the gentleman! He is fantastic with people and other dogs, and walks so well on a leash you barely even know he is there! He’s got such a wonderful personality and loves to play. He can get a bit excited so older kids are recommended for this boy.
