Fern aka Polonia the Shetland

About Fern aka Polonia

Fern is a Sheltie who was transferred to us through Pound Paws after being found as a stray. Fern arrived at Rosie very frightened and shy. She is a bit better but she will remain timid. Everything seems new to her. We have no information on her background but we seem to believe that she has been bred many times. Fern needs a loving patient family along with a nice calm dog if there is a dog in the family. She also needs a completely secure fenced in yard. She is not a dog who will run to you. She is a really nice dog. She has not shown any aggression at all since she arrived at Rosie. She is not a big barker. We are under the impression that she may have lived with Olaf a golden taken in by Rosie or another golden. She gets excited when she meets goldens. She is currently on Gabapentin for back pain which is not an expensive pain killer. Fern will be spayed and dental done next week. Another urine test will be done at the same time to make sure all is ok. So if you wish to give a shy Sheltie a retirement home please apply for Fern. A gentle experienced family would be the best for her.

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.

Cashew the Northern dog

Cashew a Northern dog arrived at Rosie to find a great home! But within a few days the vomiting and diarrhea started! Cashew was diagnosed with Parvo. Only 50% of Parvo cases are saved! Because of fast intervention and good care he was a lucky one! The care that a Parvo dog requires is very expensive. How do we keep saving these sick dogs? With the help of donators like You! Please consider donating to Rosie to help pay Cashew’s medical bill as well as help us save more dogs like Cashew! We thank all our donators from the bottom of our hearts!
