~Faith~ Yellow Labrador Retriever X, Mtl., QC

Faith is our latest rescue from a northern community where she was found with a broken electrical wire attached to her collar. She arrived in Montreal 2 days ago and was rushed into emergency surgery due to a serious eye injury (her eye could not be saved).

She is approximately 1 1/2 years old, 52 lbs, now spayed and vaccinated. A remarkable dog considering what she has gone through (a real favorite with the staff at the veterinary hospital), good with dogs and loves people. On her way to recovery, she will soon be looking for her forever home where she will be cherished and cared for as a loving family member. For more information, or to fill out an adoption application, please visit www.rosieanimaladoption.ca (Faith's bio will be up on the site shortly).

Dog-gooders: Canine care is labour of love


By MIKE BOONE, The Gazette August 4, 2010



Anne Dube has a thing for one-eyed dogs.

As fetishes go, it's fairly benign -but very expensive.

Faith is an 18-month-old Labrador retriever whose right eye was surgically removed last week at the Pierrefonds Animal Hospital. The bill for that surgery, plus stitching up the dog's damaged ear and spaying her, has topped $1,000 and the meter is still running on post-op meds.

The dog is from Waskaganish, a James Bay community where an animal-loving good Samaritan teaches French in an elementary school. Since December, France Cadieux has sent 32 dogs, which would otherwise be euthanized, to Rosie Animal Adoption in Montreal.

"She pays out of her own pocket," said Dube, who picks up the dogs at the airport and attends to their veterinary needs. Much of it is routine stuff, but there have been four cases of parvovirus, treatment of which is a four-digit veterinarian's bill.

"Most come in very healthy and they're very nice dogs," she added. "They have to be vaccinated and neutered, but Faith is the first one with serious health problems."

Dube emailed pictures of Faith, posing with Pierrefonds Animal Hospital technician Megan Fontaine after the dog's surgery. She didn't send any "before" photos because Dube deemed them too graphic.

"Her eyeball was hanging out," Dube said, "and her ear looked like it had been cut with scissors. She was in so much pain, but when she came out of the cage she still wagged her tail and let everybody pet her."

How wonderful for Faith that she was rescued and will now be cared for lovingly. I'm certain she'll find a forever home soon, she's too sweet. Bless all of those who have helped her along this road.

I spent some time with Faith yesterday and fell instantly in love . The feelings were obviously mutual...she gently nudged my fingers to pet her and then rolled on to her back for a massage...then got up as soon as I paused to ask the next person for the same . She loves everyone, I've never met a more calm and gentle soul. She's a wee little girl who just sits there looking thoughtfully at her surroundings (prolly scoping for the next person who may be willing to give her lovings ).

For all she's been through, she can't be a more prefect pup .

She sounds wonderful . To bad things are still a bit wacky with your dogs cause she would probably be a great mix with Penny .

That rescue woman sounds amazing .
