This is a sad tale that we here at CCR pray will have a happy furry-tail ending.
Meesha is a lovely 9 year old gal. She was originally adopted at the age of 1-2 by a family that could not give her the training and guidance she so desperately needed. Now, after 7ish years, this family decided that they could not keep her. Meesha began nipping their 3 year old and the family was prepared to take her to a nearby shelter in rural Ontario. Due to Meesha's anxiety - euthanasia would have been the only reality.
CCR decided to step up and help this pup. Unfortunately, once Meesha came into our rescue we found out that she would need extensive vetting including a full dental and extractions (CCR will be raising the money to pay for the vetting). It also came to our attention that Meesha has severe anxiety and fear of the urban experience. CCR is sending Meesha to a 1-2 month board and train to assist with her anxiety and behavioural rehabilitation. Funds raised for Meesha will pay for this program.
Meesha will be looking for a home after rehab that would consist of a suburban or rural environment. No children or small animals. A confident medium to large dog would benefit Meesha's rehab by helping her confidence. She is VERY cuddly and extremely happy being with her humans. Meesha LOVES to run and daily activity is mandatory. Meesha is a lover of the game "fetch" and adores a myriad of metal stimulation games as she is SUPER smart.
If you would like to meet this beautiful deserving girl we can set up a meet and greet at her board and train. Adoption is possible once rehab is complete.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on this pup. If this "tail" reaches your heart and you would like to help us raise funds to pay for Meesha's vetting and rehab please email email@example.com for fundraising ideas and support. If you would like to donate to Meesha, funds can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Preciosa certainly lives up to the meaning of her name! She is one precious señorita!
Preciosa is all the way from the streets of Mexico, but you’d never guessed she lived rough since she is so sweet and affectionate with everyone she meets. She loves to be with people and is quick to give lots of kisses to everyone. She enjoys having a generous dose of pets and belly rubs! This sweet señorita just loves to be showered with affection.
Due to being blind and hard of hearing, Preciosa has some limitations in her mobility. She cannot do stairs and takes a bit of time to adjust and learn new surroundings.
Preciosa loves large dogs! She just wants to cuddle up to them and follow them around, however she can’t distinguish small dogs from prey. Regardless of her limitations in sight, she loves her walks and checking out the smells in the local park. For being an older gal, she still has a spring in her step!
Even though she’s blind this girl is one precious sweetheart just looking for someone to shower with her affection! If you want this precious package of love, apply at: http://covetedcanines.org/application

Good with dogs: yes!
Kid tested: yes!

Separation Anxiety: a bit. Will whine and bark initially. Needs to be in a crate when left alone with a “den” effect (blanket over crate) to calm barking.

Resource guarding: no!
Barky: Boomer is a vocal dog. He is whiny and whimpery when left alone and if not crated will bark at the door as people walk past in the hallway as he seems to have some separation anxiety. Otherwise, he barks only when he hears another dog or a knock at the door. Boomer however is easily contained and maintained in a condo setting and has not received any noise complaints. Yay!!!
When out for walks, he will whine and/or bark when wanting to greet a dog as he is so friendly he wants to meet everyone immediately!
Leash manners: great on leash, zero reactivity! Pulled a bit at first but improving every day.
Good in cars: amazing!
Good on public transit.
$500 pet insurance for 6 weeks with PetSecure.
* bio may change as we get to know him better.
It’s the season for joy and happiness which just happens to be the perfect time to introduce you to Boomer! This tiny bundle of joy came north from Arkansas to find a family that wants some extra love and affection! Boomer is a playful, cuddly and active boy, about 4 years old. Like the little prince that he is, he knows what he wants and when he wants it (hint, hint, don’t take too long to hand over those treats!)
He also knows that he’s a good boy: good with dogs, good with kids, good out on busy streets and good at telling you when he needs to go out to potty (not one accident for this good boy:). While he could use a bit of training when it comes to commands, he’s a natural when it comes to being delightful. He’ll also be more than happy to inform you with some barking when there are people or noises outside, and doesn’t much like it when you leave him as he has a bit of separation anxiety. He is currently benefiting from some essential oil massages to combat the itchiness of dry skin.
Boomer needs a home where he’ll be showered with all the toys, cuddles, playmates and outside activity he can handle. If your home needs a little more forever joy, apply to adopt Boomer today at: http://covetedcanines.org/application
