Happy the Real Canadian mix

About Happy

Hi, this is Happy. We called him just Happy, because Sweet-Adorable-Affectionate-and Always-Happy would never fit on a dog tag!

Happy was found abandoned and limping badly in the Montreal area. It turns out he had double hip dysplasia. Rosie took him in and gave him the surgery he needed and now his hips will be 100%. He needs a little more physiotherapy, which Rosie will cover, and just a good old dog’s life of walks and eventually running to get his muscle back. He is now only about 42 lbs. but needs to gain a few more pounds of muscle, ideally.

Happy is also Lyme positive but asymptomatic. Rosie will cover a further blood test in a few months to check once again. If no symptoms appear by then, Happy should be fine. Lyme disease causes symptoms in only about 10% of dogs. Like all pets should, Happy is now receiving monthly tick, flea and heartworm protection.

Happy has been through a lot in his one year of life. Is he worth all this? Five minutes, even 5 seconds with him and you’ll say “Heck, yeah!”. Happy greets any person or dog like old friends. He gives joyful chit chat when it’s time to eat or walk or he sees a favorite person. He likes to give paw, just to leave it there and hold your hand. His foster sister has lent him a cushy dog bed which he climbs into and his eyes just go “ahhhhhhhh”.

And as if all that weren’t enough, he is clean in the house, sterilized and microchipped!

If you want a being to remind you about what’s important and good in life? Apply for Happy. Your instant zen place when you walk in the house.

This organization is run entirely by volunteers and we try our best to save as many homeless dogs as possible. Since there are only a few volunteers, please understand that we are unable to answer phone calls about the animals. The first step is to fill out an adoption application which you can find at: www.rosieanimaladoption.org . You will be contacted only if you are a suitable match. Rosie Animal Adoption does not have a shelter where you can come and meet the dogs. All showings are by appointment after your application has been approved, or at adoption clinics. If you have any questions, please .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). All family members must be present at time of adoption. Please note, we do not adopt strays to families with children under 12.

R.A.A. does not guarantee the breed or the temperament of the dog listed in this contract. Breed listing and description is based on R.A.A.'s own experience with the dog. The information indicated is what we have personally evaluated as to breed and temperament of this dog while under our care. We are not responsible for wrongly labeling a breed. As to an error in temperament, understand that we have evaluated the dog to the best of our knowledge and this is not an exact science. If any concerns, we strongly encourage you to contact a professional third party for temperament evaluation. Please fill out an application if you think that you can offer Happy a forever home.

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.

Happy

Just when you thought “we can’t afford to do another big surgery” an email came in from a shelter. Can you save this wonderful loving dog? He’s only 1 - real mix of a breed - male and he’s a real doll! Happy needs bilateral hip surgery. It will cost few thousand to fix him. Of course we didnt say no as we count on our supporters! His name is Happy and he was just given a new leash on life because of our faithful supporters. At Rosie we dont have rent, heating, taxes or hydro to pay on a shelter. We have a rent free office! This money goes directly on our dogs instead of on a shelter. Our foster parents care for the Rosie dogs till their forever homes are found. So again, we ask you to help us out as we thought Hachie was the last big surgery but sadly he wasnt...... Some dogs lives end where they are given up! Luckily Happy’s life did not end.
