Marjorie Needs A Home

She waits…

Marjorie is a 2 year old beautiful boxer who has been waiting at Winnipeg Animal Services for far too long. She came in as an unclaimed stray way back in May. That’s a long time for anyone to wait, let alone a big, bouncy boxer gal.

Marjorie does have some issues and we are not shying away from them. But most can be managed and even eliminated if she were in a home with a family to guide her.

Marjorie is big for a boxer and she is strong. She needs someone with experience and with the strength to handle her. In the kennel environment she is not getting along with the other dogs. Kennel environments often exacerbate this behaviour. It is hoped that her being in a home situation could make all the difference, but for now it is recommended that she go to a family with no other dogs.

I know, I know, this all seems daunting. But really, all that aside, this girl will steal your heart if given half a chance. Marjorie will do almost anything for a yummy treat and that is a good thing… training will be easy.

She loves to run and play, frolicking about like only a boxer can, jowls flapping. Her silly antics will have you smiling in no time. This girl is just sooo much fun! All she needs is that special someone who is willing to give her a chance.

If you would like to meet Marjorie or would like more information, please come down to Winnipeg Animal Services and the staff will be happy to help you.

Just a reminder when you are adopting a pet, to take the time to meet the scared ones, the shy ones, the ones with the boring colours or missing limbs, the older ones, the frail ones. They have not given up. They just need you. And maybe you just need them too.

Earthdog Adoptables

I recently had the pleasure of spending time with some of my favourite people and dogs at an adoption event held by Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba. Here are some of the adoptables…

Eugene

Would you believe Eugene is only 5 months old… he will be one big gorgeous boy when full-grown.

Fiona

Fiona is one very loving, sweet gal… the ultimate cuddle bug.

Lacey

Lacey is a fun-loving gal… she would do great with an active family and would love a canine playmate.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin is an energetic guy who gets along with everyone… cats, kids, dogs.

Ava

Ava is a calm, mellow girl who is larger than she appears in the photos. She is about 50 pounds or more.

Some of these dogs are long-timers in the rescue. Having known them, I can’t help but wonder why. They are such good dogs and would make wonderful companions for the right families. If you would like more info on any of these dogs please contact Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba.
