EHS Pet Update: Dozer and Baxter the bonded pair of dogs

In early August, we put the call out to find a special family for Baxter and Dozer, who had been waiting over two months for their forever family to find them (that's a long time in dog years!). This pair of pups were surrendered to the Edmonton Humane Society together in early June, and we knew we couldn't separate them. However, this meant finding a home that could take on a 12 year old Airedale Terrier who loves to sing, and his excitable little brother, a 5 year old Pit Bull cross. Two weeks later, a family approached us who were interested in taking these brothers home. They brought in two of their other dogs for a meet-and-greet, and to our relief everyone got along!

He'd been with you about a month, and ‎you'd healed his three broken teeth, nourished him back from hunger, and treated a respiratory infection.  Cashew had just gone up for adoption the very day I visited. He was playing with abandon with what looked like a sock. I picked him up, he gave me one kiss, settled down on my chest, and promptly fell asleep. Well... we were both goners at that moment. :)  I brought Cashew home, opened the carrier, and out he came.... leaping and jumping with glee.... boing, boing, boing like a bouncing ball. I did end up renaming him Boing-a Boy, and it suits him!!  Boinga emanates pure love. When others meet him, they fall in love. They say, "he's just not normal!" and I say, "I know! He just came that way!". He stands up on hind legs and reaches out his front paws to be picked up for hugs. And he does this with one and all!! He came knowing how to fetch (and it remains our [...]
