William

William

December 21, 2018

We wanted to share a little update about William, who joined our family just about 1 year ago (December 22, 2017 to be exact!).

Since the moment he stepped foot in the door, he’s been an absolute joy. William can be a total lazy bum in the house, spending many hours snoozing on the couch or in the sun that shines through our back patio doors. But at the park, he has endless energy, never failing to make an impression, and always seeming to be the instigator, egging on the other dogs to chase him.

As we near our 1 year anniversary with him, we can’t even remember what life was like before William was sneaking into our bed after his nighttime walk, or curling up in our laps to watch a movie. We can’t thank the Toronto Humane Society enough for bringing William to us all the way from his humble beginnings as a street dog in Kentucky, and for all of the wonderful work they do!

I wanted to share an update on our dog Zo! We adopted her as a pup in March (she went by Chickadee then) and she has quickly become the love of our life!

She’s got a loveable personality, loves snuggles and playing in the snow, and she has a voice that’s full of sass. Her birthday is on Friday December 21st (turning 1!) and she’s about to become a big sister any day now. She may not look impressed in these pics, but that’s our Zo and we love her!


Magnum

Magnum

December 17, 2018

I adopted Magnum from the Toronto Humane Society just over 15 years ago!

Magnum (formerly Herman) will be 16 years old this coming May and he’s a Doberman mix. He’s an incredible dog, with a big heart - loves everyone - including his 4 (yes 4) feline brothers. His health is great, and he still has moments
of “puppy” when he runs in speedy circles around our country property.

While he spent the first half of his life in Toronto with me, we moved to Haliburton about 6 years ago and he loves being out in nature and camping in our trailer, but Magnum also enjoys long naps and Netflix!

Thank you so much to the Toronto Humane Society for rescuing Magnum, he’s definitely rescued me - every day - ever since. #LoveOfMyLife


Maia

I recently adopted Hocus, a gorgeous little kitty who now goes by the name ‘Maia’.

When I brought Maia home, it took her about 20 minutes to sniff the entire apartment out, and once she was finished she jumped on my bed where I had been sitting waiting for her to settle in, and began to meow, purr and give me all of the kitty kisses! She was so happy, and she got comfortable with her new home so fast! I am so lucky to have her, and I know she feels the same about me. She has so much energy, and often wakes me up in the night for cuddles and kisses.

She is an amazing little girl with a huge personality. She makes me laugh all day, and she already responds to her new name. She’s so intelligent!

Maia and I thank you for allowing this new friendship to begin!

Our dear little Lucy has been with us for almost two weeks and we have all fallen in love. She is playful and affectionate and entertains us with her antics. Lucy has a great purr!

She has adjusted very well to her new home and is friendly and unperturbed when visitors come. We really feel lucky to have her.

Thanks to the foster family who gave her such a great start!


Tau-iû

Tau-iû

November 24, 2018

My partner and I adopted Mocca a few months ago, he now has a new name Tau-iû(means soy sauce in Taiwanese). He seems to be very responsive for his new name.

Tau-iû is really relax and talks a lot. He is very food motivated, likes the toys we bought him, also warm baths. He sleeps “on”our heads and tends to wake us up in the morning by kissing and biting our faces.

With a few months, Tau-iû has become the professional cat patrol in the house. For instance, he enters ever rooms to check up on something, also, he attacks the shoelace snakes to protect us…instead of kneading our bellies, he decides to knead on the armpits just to make sure our body is in good condition by checking up our acupoints. We feel very very happy and lucky that we met Tau-iû. Mocca is in good hands, and we love him so much, he is very healthy and extremely chill, and he has found his forever home!

Thank to Toronto humane society for being helpful for both the cat and us. With Tau-iû, our life is just complete! ​


Bowie

Bowie

November 18, 2018

​Just wanted to give you a long overdue update on Bowie (aka Caramilk). She was adopted her from the Paws in the Park event in July. We’d been following the husky-mix puppies for sometimes and were so excited when they were finally up for adoption (got there at 8am)! It was a tough choice between Bowie and her 3 adorable sisters that Saturday morning but we haven’t regretted a thing.

Bowie is the sweetest, most adorable well-behaved pupper in the world. We are loving every day with her. She loves long walks through High Park, playing with her friends at the dog park, chewing ice or a bone with some PB in it and playing her with puppy BFF at our dog-friendly office, Newton. Bowie totally aced her puppy training course and everyone constantly comments on how well-behaved and chill she is, especially for a puppy. We couldn’t agree more.

As you may or may not remember, we also adopted the sweetest cat in the world from THS in the Spring named Bohemian. While he is great with other cats, we quickly learned he does not care for dogs. It’s definitely been an adjustment for him but he’s slowly coming around to Bowie. We are constantly trying to make sure he has as much attention as ever and knows he is still very loved and in charge. Bo(hemnian) is such a chatty little angel and we look forward to moving to a larger house up north where they have more space to share.

Anyways, just wanted to share our story and may thanks. THS does so much amazing work and we are so happy to support them. Bowie has grown so much (just over 5 months now)! You can also follow her on Instagram at @bowiethehuskymixpup.

Thanks for all that you do Toronto Humane Society, these animals are so lucky to have such a great organization. Take care.


Bella

Bella

November 16, 2018

​We just wanted to share a picture of our lovely baby Bella (formerly Belladonna). We adopted her in May 2016 and she quickly became the love of our life.

This year, we got our own house after living in a condo and Bella is pretty stoked to have a house to call her own! She loves her new neighbours and has made lots of doggy friends. We are so lucky to have her. She has the absolute best personality. Even those who are nervous of Bully Breeds quickly warm up to her as she has a big smile and wagging tail.

Thank you again for helping us find the dog of our dreams. Bella loves to sleep in on Sunday mornings or go on trail runs through the snow. There is nothing we can’t do with her.

If anyone is unsure about adopting a dog like her, don’t be. They are the gentlest, most easy going dogs around!

​Cookie was adopted by someone else and returned to the Toronto Humane Society When I adopted her on March 1, 2006 she was estimated to be about 5 months old, she is now happy and thriving and 14 years old now. Yes she does pose for photos . . . when SHE feels like it!


Coco

Here’s an update on Clyde, who’s new name is Coco!

After 3 months, he’s still very excited and hyper and always down for a trip to the forest. He’s very good with the family and we’ve all come to love him dearly. His adopted brother Chaco even started cleaning Coco’s ears and Wally the cat rubs up against Coco when he comes inside.

Although Coco is 100MPH, his demeanour is very docile and we even see some calmness in him. ​
