Sophie a Maltese mix. I do not understand why a dog as sweet as Sophie came into my care. Why she was shuffled from home to home and finally ended up at the shelter. Why she was so matted that her eyes were nearly shut from this. She is the perfect little girl. She adores […]
OB is a Big on Beagles rescue who will be convalescing at the Haven until he loses weight to have surgery on his cherry eyes and maybe his cauliflower ears. Weighing in at over 68lbs, he is a happy boy running around in the snow. He may be a bit slower than the other residents, […]
That Stewie, our newest is so cute! Had to share. He likes to sit on the
kitchen table, like our visitor Carlos, so now it is no longer a table but a
bed. Note the towel.
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
Yoyo came into the Haven on October 23, 2015 from the Oakville and District Humane Society as a stray.
Yoyo is approximately 3 years old. He has a neurological and/or orthopedic disease. He has to wear corrective/supportive braces on his back legs to help him walk. He also has to be bandaged and wear Muttluks on his front feet. Eventually the front legs may also need braces. Yoyo has to be bandaged and braced every morning. At night, everything comes off and he sleeps in a playpen. He is quite use to this routine and just lies on the table. Yoyo is in good spirits and a very busy dog. He loves to play and run. Yoyo will have to make trips to Toronto several times a year for repairs to his braces and check-ups with the neurologists/surgeon.
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 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.
Bear is a long-haired, handsome boy who is extremely sweet, lovable, and easy going. He came from the Kingston Humane Society into the Haven on October 7, 2014 at the age of 12. He has an eye condition called Pannus which has given him limited sight. He loves to play with a ball that flashes so he can find it. He also suffers from old age arthritis. Bear is a very sociable dog who loves to play with other dogs and who will lay quietly at your feet.
Taz came to Sheba’s Haven as a stray from north of Toronto. He has Cushing’s, an adrenal gland disease which causes bald spots on his coat and which always leads to other medical problems. His medication protocol seems to be improving his loss of hair. One look in Taz’s eyes and you will know that he is a gentle old soul. Taz loves attention but tends to watch from a distance instead of following you around.
Baxter is a sweet Puggle, which is a Pug/Beagle cross, who has pelvic limb paralysis from an unknown cause (perhaps from jumping off a couch). His owners found it necessary to surrender him because they could not manage him anymore. Luckily, he gets around great with or without his wheelchair and has developed front legs that rival Arnold Schwarzenegger’s. Baxter loves to play and run after a ball. He is also another enthusiastic greeter with visitors.
