Ebony the Shetland mix

About Ebony

Ebony is a 3-4 year old sheltiex that arrived in Canada from the South Korean meat farms last winter. Even though she has been here for about 1 year, that is really not a long time for a dog who has endured what she has. It is a very slow road for her. She has been very traumatized from her past life (we can only guess everything she has been through). Although, a lot of these dogs do come around, many may never be what is considered "a normal dog".

When she first came to my home, we could not even touch or look at her. She didn't know what stairs were, or really anything else. She certainly didn't know anything about being bathroom trained. With the help of a trainer (thanks to Rosies) and a lot of hard work, she is ever so slowly progressing. She is food motivated, so that is helpful.

We are looking for a very special family for her. She does not walk on a leash at the present time. A completely secured fenced in yard is mandatory. There must be at least one other playful dog at home. She loves her foster siblings. Someone who is home part time would be preferred as she requires a lot of work and patience. At first she would never come in from the backyard when she went out, which can be a huge challenge. She is till working on house training, but much better when very consistent. She also uses pee pads. She is not a dog for a home with children. She does love to play with dogs and enjoys her stuffed toys.There are many things you cannot do with her. She probably will never be that "normal dog". Please don't think that she can be changed in a week by giving her a home and love. She has that in her foster home, but these dogs take a a lot more than just the basics.

It can be a very rewarding experience to help and care for a dog like Ebony. Watching all the changes that come about when she feels secure. Please understand we can only respond to the applications that meet her very specific requirements.

Surrenders

Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.

We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.

Gerard

On Valentine’s day, we received a prognosis on Gerard, the 4 month Newfoundlander mix. Since Gerard arrived at Rosie he has been dribbling urine. Gerard being only 4 months old needs a chance at living a full life! After consultation with Dr Javard, DMV, it was found that Gerard has a sac like in his Urethra which fills with urine. Very uncommon, only 1 paper has been written on this condition. Our choice on Valentines day was - euthanise Gerard or fix him. We choose to give him a chance at life. On Tuesday, he will undergo surgery at DMV to repair his Urethra. We are all hoping that this surgery will be successful! But we need you in order to save Gerard! Pls consider donating to help Gerard heal on this cold Valentines day!

If Gerard could thank you personally he would! Donations are our only way to fix our dogs and allow them to live! We want Gerard to be a Rosie survivor!!
