Apple – Small Dog

I am blind and deaf

I’m Little Miss Apples.

I’m a very sweet, happy, healthy girl.
I came from a puppy mill. I am deaf and I am blind. I need some extra help navigating my world. I’ve spent most my life in a kennel so I’m pretty unfamiliar with most regular doggie things. The grass still freaks me out especially if theres any sort of weather going on. I’m getting used to the yard little by little and I’m starting to enjoy sitting in the sunshine.

I would be so happy as a purse dog or super amazing for someone to take into the office or shop everyday. Someone with lots of time hang out with me. My foster dad takes me all over in a picnic basket. A basket full of apples It’s really sturdy so I feel safe and always has a towel from my bed so that it smells like home. This type of thing is very important when you can’t see or hear

I rely mostly on my nose to get around and sometimes if I wander to far away from my bed I get all turned around and lost. My foster dad has an air freshener right near my bed to help me smell my way back. Even so he finds me lost and stuck in a corner somewhere time to time.I’m doing a really good job learning to go on puppy pads. My foster home is trying to potty train me with particular smells put on the pads. That way it will be easier to transition to the grass or doggie litter even.

I’m the best snuggle buddy ever! I would even say my number 1 talent is snuggling on the couch. I’m a pretty quiet dog too. Except for my little piggy squeals when I’ve been alone for a long while and someone visits me or when my foster dad comes home. I’m great with cats and dogs. I’m ok with Extremely gentle children. I get scared quite often and I don’t think it would be fair for me to live in somewhere with small children.

This is a WHARF dog named Apples who was used by a breeder and dumped when she could no longer have puppies. She is blind and deaf and came into WHARF severely matted. She is doing well in foster care and absolutely adores her foster dad!

Cater

PLEASE READ MY BIO: I do not do well home alone. I do not do well with submissive dogs and smaller dogs. I need a home with another dominant dog who I can follow their lead. I need a home willing to commit to me as I have been adopted and returned twice. I am very loving and loyal, I just need the right people to commit to me.

Playtime is exhausting!
Cater is always happy to check on the foster kittens!

I am a loving dog who is looking for my family. I think I could do well on a farm. I am good with cattle and don’t chase cats or rabbits. I am amazing off leash and I don’t run away. I love my humans too much. Which is also a bit of a problem in certain situations. I have been adopted and returned twice to WHARF. The first time I was returned because I was destructive to the house when I was home alone. The second time I was returned was because I bit someone (a stranger in my home) who was drunk and who was bothering me. I did not hurt him too badly,  but I did break skin on his hand. Like many dogs, people who smell like alcohol scare me. This man wasn’t listening to my warnings that I was very scared. All of my owners, past and present, do not think I am a dangerous dog. I live in a foster home with kids and I am nothing but gentle. This time I  get adopted I need someone who can commit to me forever. 

I have some anxiety about being home alone. I am learning that my humans come home and aren’t leaving me forever. Sometimes I may scratch at the door or rip up the mat because I want to get to you. I have destroyed crates trying to get out and get to my humans. Being adopted and returned twice has made me feel more worried that I am going to lose my humans.

I am very well trained. I sit, stay, lay down and jump up on command. I love to play. I am loyal and loving.

If I had a home with a big, confident dog to keep me company I would likely do well. I could be happy on a farm where I can be outside when you go out, and I have some freedom to play with another dog buddy. When I am left home I will do everything in my power to get to you. I will chew, climb and persist until I can find you. I will need a secure, safe place to be kept while you are gone where I can’t hurt myself. I love people and I just want to be with them all the time. Right now I am doing well in my foster home with kids, a cat and my big dog friend, Boomer. I am such a loving, kind dog that just needs someone who understands that I can’t help the way I feel when my humans leave. I’m about 65lbs. If you want to see more photos and video of me head to Shauna’s Foster Dog Family on Facebook. I’m neutered, vaccinated and dewormed. Please ask about me today!

Malt

I am Malt and I am a beautiful girl. I am good in a kennel and house trained. I have mediocre recall, I’m not interested in running away but I don’t come back very quickly I will need to be an on leash dog. I’m not bothered by cats and I love other dogs. I am good with kids but I do jump up a bit, gently. I will need help learning how to sit when I am excited so I don’t knock over any little people. Foster mom says I am getting better at this every day. I am about 40lbs so I’m not too big. I have medium energy and would make a great single dog or second dog companion. I am a great size and athletic but I relax nicely. I am spayed, vaccinated and de-wormed. Adopt me!

Peatree

Peatree is an extremely well behaved dog. She is fully house trained and is non-destructive so she can be left alone in the house and you will not have to worry about her having an accident or chewing up the furniture. She loves going for walks and it only took a couple of days to train her how to walk on a loose leash without pulling. She is so smart and easy to train. She is very quiet and doesnt even bark when she gets excited. Peatree is incredibly affectionate and sometimes forgets what a big girl she is. In her mind she is just a lap dog and when she is excited to see you or feeling a bit lonely, she will climb right on top of you and shower you with affection if you let her. As of now, her prey drive is too strong to be around cats or other small critters so not cats please. She is not a hyper dog but she would fit best with someone who enjoys taking her for long walks every day. She lives to explore the outdoors!

Smokey

Smokey came from Fox Lake where he lived outside. He was being fed for 3 years by a lovely couple whom had adopted his sister and always watched out for him. It is a remote area and Smokey was not thriving. He was transported to Edmonton before Christmas and was in pretty rough shape. He had a horribly infected huge open wound to his neck that without treatment probably would have killed him . He also was very lame on his front left leg. He went right to the vet where he was hooked up to IV for dehydration and antibiotics. His wound was cleaned and he was monitored on fluids for a couple days. Once he was feeling better he was put under anesthetic to get neutered and assess his limp. His toe was badly broken and had to be amputated as well. He is a lucky dog that someone cared enough to bring him so we could help him. His vet bill is just shy of $1000, which does not effect his adoption fee. He is good with cats and most other dogs, he likes the ladies better. He is house trained but needs to be kenneled when left unattended as he has no experience being left inside a house by himself. He is ready to be adopted and know what it is like to live inside, loved and taken care of.

Zeke

I am a bit of a noisy guy. I like to talk and tell you how I’m feeling. I don’t like when my humans leave. I like to be around people! They are great! I am playful and can be a bit mouthy with ankles and arms. I’m pretty sure humans like to play like dogs do but foster mom says that only my dog friends like to play this way. I am okay with cats but do like to chase them if they run. I do not do well with dominant male dogs. If I have a dog friend it would be best if it was submissive. I am very loyal and smart. I was given away because when my humans left I would get off my chain or out of my fence and run onto the highway, trying to jump into cars. This seemed like a very practical way to get back to my humans but for some reason they did not like my smart idea. They gave me to WHARF to try and find me a home where I can be safe and break my hitch-hiking habit. Please inquire on me today!
