Storm flew in a cargo jet in November 2021 all the way from Iqualuit Nunavut. He came because he is in need of surgeries to adress his large calluses on his elbows. He is a great boy, only 3 years old. Now he is being cared for in a foster home with the best love and care and has had his surgery. It was a long recovery as there were complications but it's almost all healed up. We used honey bandages to help healing.
Harley is a 5 year old female Dogue de Bordeaux. She was admitted to the emergency the same day as her rescue. Harley was vomiting, drinking excessively and running a high fever. Over that, she has a very evident bacterial skin infection that was causing her to scratch herself excessively.
After many tests, we discovered that Harley has an abnormaly large bladder with distended tissue. Harley was diagnosed with Diabetes Insipidus, which is not like diabetes but is a condition that causes her to produce excessive amounts of diluted urine. She is now on a medication called Desmopressin that seems to have significantly reduced the frequency and quantity of her urine. She is being cared for in a foster home and goes to work everyday with her new mama.
Titan is 6 and a half. He suffers from a condition called SLO that causes his nails to split, rot, fall off and bleed. This causes much pain. He also has been living with an orthopedic issue with his back legs. We are waiting on the specialists for our appointement to adress both these issues. He really like to play ball and meet new friends. He is eating well and is adapting to his new environment quite well. He seems to enjoy car rides and is even gentle with cats and our chickens.
Arnie has been with us since summer 2020. Rescued just in time, he was admitted to the emergency hospital and underwent a major surgery to save his life. He remained there for 5 days. Arnie is a part of our medical program, where he will be closely supervised while being cared for in a medical foster home.
Arnie has been through a lot but sure is strong and resilient. He is a true hero, gaining weight and filling in , now almost reaching 120 pounds. To put things into perspective, Arnie was rescue at more than 50% of this weight. His personnality is shining through , he is gentle with children, cats, chickens and dog alike. He really likes to be tucked in at night before bed and we must read him a story.
He loves car rides, chewing deer antlers and going for walks. Arnie is now King of his castle in his foster home.
Daisy is a recent rescue ♥️ in september 2022 this girl arrived. She had to see the vet for some slight limping that we are managing now with anti inflammatory medecine. She will see the vet again soon to see if surgery is required. It turned out mademoiselle does not like dogs at all, so this will be a challenge for her. She loves humans and adores getting cuddles and love. We are hoping to get her some exposure to other dogs safely to see if she can overcome this challenge.
Rufus is now admitted into our medical program. Rufus suffered a bad break in his front leg that required surgery before he came to us. That injury is causing him some pain and requires constant medical supervision. Rufus does have some special items in his diet that helps keep the inflammation away. He is in a wonderful foster home and his mama loves to dress him up, he even has an Instagram page! Rufus is on pain medication and is closely supervised by Dr. Sparling.
These animals are under long term medical care. They are not for adoption at this time.
This is why we need your help. We are responsible for these dogs for their lifetime.
UPDATE: we recently diagnosed Lily with seizures. We are monitering her closely.
Lily was welcomed as a young puppy. She is completely blind. After 2 months, one of her eyes became severly infected. The eye was removed and she was back to her old self. For months, with Mama France, Lily learned to be confident and brave, using voice commands only. She loves to play in water, as one of her favorite outings was going to swim in the river in Wakefield. She loves the car rides too. She is now living in a foster home with a retired couple where she gets all the attention. She is spoiled as her foster mama makes her roast beef and gravy.
DOGS CURRENTLY UNDER OUR CARE
Edgar is our most recent rescue, in november 2022. He is one cool cat on this picture but don't be fooled, he is a true puppy at heart and acts like one ! he is full of energy and likes to play, he is healthy and was able to go to a foster home immediately....and well, they ended up keeping him long term because he was a good fit for the family. We will supervise his well being but all we see is a big goofy dog living beside the Gatineau river having fun. He hates water but maybe that will change !
