When it comes to adopting a new dog, we recommend a rescue!
Why You Should Adopt a Rescue?
There are many great reasons for adopting a rescue. Here are a couple!
1. When you adopt a rescue, you are giving a loving dog a new life.
Rescue dogs usually come from high-kill shelters, after having been abandoned by their families, or living as strays.
Rescuing a dog gives them the opportunity for a new, loving life with your family.
2. There is nothing quite like the love of a rescue dog.
Rescues are eager to find a family that fits. They long for the love and companionship that comes with adoption.
Because of this, there is a special kind of love and connection between adopters and their rescues.
They understand all too well what life is like without a loving family and warm bed, and so they appreciate it that much more when they have it.
This Weeks Rescue
This week's featured rescue, Bruna, is from Fetch & Releash.
Fetch & Releash is a 100% volunteer-run dog rescue founded in 2016.
Their dogs come from a variety of different backgrounds, and their work involves partnerships with local and international shelters and pounds.
At Fetch & Releash, their mission is to rescue and re-home as many dogs as possible, regardless of their age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues.
Their goal is to find each of their rescued dogs the loving forever-home they deserve.
Bruna is a sweet girl who has spent most of her life on the streets and in a Mexican shelter. She is three years old and until she was brought to Canada by Fetch & Releash, she had never lived in a home.
We were fortunate to have Bruna attend our Pup and Santa photos and can attest that she is a lovely girl that will thrive in the right home!
She can be shy at first but watching her with her foster dad made it clear that, once you earn her trust, you could not find a more loyal companion.
She is good with other dogs and although she is a bit timid with new people, she still enjoys a good ear scratch!
Bruna is a medium energy girl who enjoys an hour walk in the morning and an hour at night.
You wouldn't have to worry about being dragged behind her as she is responsive to who is on the other end of the leash and not a big puller.
Bruna is crate trained and would benefit from basic obedience training so she can perfect her skills.
If you or someone you know is interested in Bruna, head over to adopt a pet and check her out!
