Stella

Stella was brought to the Haven on November 15, 2015 by another rescue Bow
Wow Acres. They found her wandering a country road. She was one big matt and
more fleas than you can imagine. They brought her to the Haven as she had a
grade 4 heart murmur. It has now been upgraded to a 5. Stella aka Miss
Attitudinal is about 10 years old. She is the apple of her daddy’s eye and
will sleep on his lap while at the computer or watching TV. She lets the
other dogs know when they are in her ‘space’ and they have learnt to respect
that. Stella will also let you know when you are taking too long to get her
meals ready.

darla

Darla was found wandering the streets of Toronto and a Good Samaritan brought her to Toronto Animal Services. The Good Samaritan was worried that if no-one claimed her, she would be put down given her age, 12+, but BOB came to the rescue and Darla came into the Haven June 6, 2015. She came into the shelter with both eyes but the pressure in one was very high. The pain the little darling must have been in. It was removed.
Darla was named after the feisty little character from Little Rascals, and feisty she is! She is managing with her one eye. She is very slow walking having a bad hip on one side and a bad knee on the other, but it does not stop her from going on a little walk around the back yard.

Mickey

Mickey came into the Haven on 10 May 2015. He was rescued by BOB who was contacted by Oakville Humane Society after they removed him and others from a nearby property in February. Mickey is estimated to be about 6-8 years old and has a heart condition called Pulmonic stenosis that sadly, will shorten his lifespan. Mickey is a character. He loves to play. He will get a burst of energy and grab something as he speeds by you. Hopefully it is not something you really need. He will also play with a ball, throwing it up in the air and running around catching it. He is still shy and needs to get to know strangers.

Joe found Mary, the best soul ever to adopt him. He not only had Mary but a wonderful extended family. Unfortunately Joe Cocker was diagnosed with cancer and passed on, in Mary’s loving arms on April 17, 2015. Our hearts, prayers and tears are with Mary and her family at this difficult time.

Baby
Baby was surrendered by her owner from the Toronto area because of the care he now requires. Despite his age of 19 years and his bowed legs, he can still move quickly for short periods. Very intelligent for his age, he will let his foster parents know he’s hungry – which is all the time – by looking at the counter, then down at his bowl. Although Baby is very tiny, he moves his big fleecy blanket to wherever he wants to sleep. His foster parents call him their Diva Dog because he plays the sympathy note by whining and lifting his front paw when he wants something. Of course, he always gets what he wants.

Costco7
Grandpa Louis came to us as a foster from Big on Beagles. He was named after Country Music Hall of Famer “Grandpa Louis Marshall Jones,” born exactly 100 years ago, who was a banjo player from Niagara, Kentucky, and a cast member on Hee Haw! Louis is strong willed and a loner, who will howl if another dog tries to lay on his bed with him. He needs his space and if anyone stands too close to him, he will also howl. On the flip side, he will plop himself down on any bed he chooses, no matter who has already claimed it. From years of living in a kennel, he walks with small, quick steps, which looks as though he’s walking on his tippy-toes.
