I'll consider it once they've been assessed, but if they're in good enough condition to be put up for adoption, they'll be picked up pretty quickly! They really have no room, I was there on the weekend and every cage is full :sad:

Yup :sad: I almost left with one on the weekend, still can't get her out of my mind :rolleyes:

I had to get some records from fostering while I was there so I went through the back where they've just installed new cages for dogs that are lost or injured and can't be put up for adoption yet and there were 2 pittie puppies :sad: I was told they've arranged for them to go to a rescue outside of ontario though, thank god. :sad:

I almost adopted one last year, but her foster family loved her too much to give her up :lovestruck:

She was deaf except a little bit in one ear so everytime you talked to her, she'd cock her head :cloud9:

I went for years sharing a twin bed with her...and you know how they have to sprawl out as much as possible :rolleyes: plus she had to be under the covers, so I think she trained me pretty well for future pits :laughing:

Poor pups :sad:
My sister is looking to adopt one of the pugs - she's always wanted one, and now here's her chance to save one! :thumbs up

I told her she should also save room for one of Ethel's kittens ;)

These puppy mills thing will only get worse thanks to the wonderful world of internet. Until kijiji and places like these stop people from selling pets on their websites , it will only get worse :mad:

The laws here sucks and politicians are not listening. All we can do is educate people , to tell them don't buy in pet shops and don't by over the internet. Tell them to go to GOOD breeders or , my favorites : rescue from shelters and rescues !!!!
