Looking to adopt a dog in need of a home? Animatch has what you are looking for. The West Island News has joined forces with the Animatch team in order to help these dogs find a suitable family.
GISELE-FEMALE-HUSKY X- 1-YEAR-OLD
Gisele recently arrived from Ivuujivik, a Northern community, and she's on the lookout for her forever family. She's lively, affectionate, and full of fun. She could easily live with another dog or kids old enough to be knocked down a few times and to know to keep their hands out of her food bowl. Cats are out of the question. Obedience classes would help with walking on leash and coming when called. If you're a four-season, outdoorsy kind of family and you'd like her to join you on your adventures, fill out the form and ask for Gisele.
JETHRO-MALE-LAB X - 2 YEARS OLD
Jethro is 96 lbs of exuberance. In other words, he's a diamond in the rough just waiting to be enrolled in obedience classes. The good news is that he's food motivated. He was quite a "mouther" but is learning that no one appreciates this trait. He could live with the right female dog, but definitely not with cats. He's also not a good candidate for the dog park. Jethro has a crusty scar on his head that requires medicated cream right now, and it may never disappear completely. He's looking for outdoorsy guardians who will include him in their daily activities. If that sounds like you, and you have the love, patience, and commitment for this hunk, fill out the form and ask for Jethro.
DELIMA-FEMALE-DOGUE DE BORDEAUX - 1 1/2 YEARS OLD
Delima is a 110-lb bundle of slobbering love. She was given up because her family couldn't afford the surgery she required for TPOL (Tibia Plateau Leveling Osteotomy), for a torn ACL ligament. She has now had the surgery and is recuperating and showing improvement. Delima loves everyone, but would do better in a home with adults and children over twelve. She gets along with other dogs but won't be able to play or roughhouse for a while. She would be perfectly content to be your one and only. She's looking for a family who will appreciate her serenity and loyalty.
WHOEVER ADOPTS DELIMA MUST BE AWARE OF THE FACT THAT IN 60% OF CASES, A TEAR LIKE HERS WILL LATER LEAD TO AN INJURY OF THE OTHER KNEE.
EASTON-MALE- LAB X- 2 MONTHS OLD- DOB JUNE 16
Easton and his eight littermates were born right here at the Animatch centre. Mom has been teaching them everything they need to know about the doggie world. Now they're ready for their forever families to show them what they need to know to be good canine citizens. Easton is a little shy at first, but attention and affection brings him out of his shell. He would love puppy classes where he would be socialized and he's heard about obedience school for when he gets a little bigger. He gets along with other dogs and at this age, and could learn to live with cats. Easton needs an outdoorsy family with someone at home most of the day. Children should be old enough to understand that he'll be teething for the next few months. If you think your family is the one to welcome this little boy into your home, fill out the form and ask for Easton.
