Nothing in the world can provide as much unconditional love than a dog, if paired with the right person or family. And with Christmas just around the corner, you might be thinking of adopting a canine companion for your children or a loved one.
Before you do, however, it is vital that you do your homework. It would be highly traumatic for both the receiver and an animal if the dog had to be returned for any reason. To help ensure that this does not happen and to aid you with this process, go HERE before you adopt to find out everything you need to know and take into consideration before a dog is adopted.
Tiny Paws Dog Rescue Canada (TPDRC) of Toronto, Ontario would like to tell you about an adorable little Shih Tzu named Nina.
Nina is about 6 years old and blind in one eye. She was taken to a specialist and the doctor said her eye had been injured. Because of this, she needs eye drops every day. However, this problem does not stop her from getting the most out of life.
She loves to get out and go for walks, enjoys playing with other dogs and can even be “a bit of a ‘Bossy Boots,’ according to her foster mom. Nina is not fond of cats likely because one might have caused her eye injury. Who could blame her!
This little girl loves to eat and then curl up in a chair next to her significant other for the evening. She might bark if other dogs do but that is all. Her foster mom makes sure she gets outside to do her business, so she does not have any accidents.
Nina is spayed, up-to-date on her routine vaccinations and micro-chipped. It is advised that she go to a home without cats or small children. To learn more about her, email firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘Pet Inquiry: Nina PFId#24680514’ in the subject line. You can also call 800.774.8315.
Tiny Paws Dog Rescue Canada is a registered charity run by volunteers. The goal is to rescue strays and take in surrendered animals (under 20 lbs.) – both mixed breeds and purebreds. TPDRC also educates the public on responsible pet ownership. Anyone wishing to help either as a volunteer or foster parent should contact them for more information at the number above. General inquiries can be emailed to email@example.com. For adoption information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
