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’s bio may change as we get to know her more.
*Comes with 6 weeks of pet insurance - $500 coverage.
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

Want a dog with the personality of a big dog, but not interested in cleaning up big dog poops? Never fear, Maya is here! She is not your average lap dog! All she wanted for Christmas was to come to Canada from Mexico to find her forever home, and we HAD to oblige.
She's reactive on leash, so applicants should be prepared to seek some training support and learn techniques to work with her on that. However, her foster mom reports that this isn't a big worry for her! She's good with dogs when introduced properly and so she would make a great second (or third) dog! She LOVES her people, so if you're retired or work from home, Maya is INTO IT.
FYI, Maya fully intends to claim her spot next to you in bed, so if you're not into midnight puppy cuddles, she's not your girl.
Her Foster mama says her personality changes everyday as she becomes more comfortable, so if you want to see this beauty of a girl come out of her shell to be the dog she was born to be, step right up and send us an email: Adopt@covetedcanines.org OR apply directly through www.covetedcanines.org. Start your 2018 off right and opt to adopt!
