News from Landon July 2014:


Early 2007 we rescued Landon as a puppy while we were working with SCARS (prior to us forming DDARS). We loved fostering him. Sadly, he was born with a heart defect and was expected to live only six months.
We were put in contact with a heart surgeon from the University of Guelph Veterinary College who was lecturing in Calgary in May. He agreed to meet us, so off to Calgary we went. Landon made a friend. The good doctor said he was booked a year out but was taking holidays in July and if we could get Landon to Guelph he would come in from vacation and he and his team would repair his heart. So off to Toronto we went. Landon's airline kennel had a big sign on it saying that he was on his way to Guelph for heart surgery. The airline folks treated Landon like a celebrity. We arrived at the University hospital and greeted with open arms. It was a difficult operation and Landon even flatlined on the operating table but he rallied around. It was a success!! We stayed over in Toronto for a week or so and he met our Ontario family and friends and then we headed back to Edmonton and to his forever Mom Lisa.

We have kept in touch with Landon over the years and here he is seven years later enjoying life as a strapping 80 pound bundle of love.

Upcoming Garage Sale Fundraiser

MARMADUKE
My name is Marmaduke and I'm a 1 year old Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix and currently 75 pounds. I am tall and lanky and do need to put on a bit of weight. I'm submissive and friendly, great with dogs and cats (but will try to play with them). I'm good with older with kids, but I might knock small ones over when I get excited. Just a sweet guy looking for a new family.

BELLA
HELLO! It's me, Bella! Foster mom told me that if I sit pretty my forever family will come along, but I'm too excited, that's just my personality. I love to snuggle and give kisses and I have free roam of the house during the day and at night, I am too much of a good girl to ruin your things! At 6 years young I still love to play, I am great at fetch and will bring the ball back as many times as you will throw it. I am working on my manners and would do best in an only pet home and with older children (foster mom says I can be a bit of a bossy boots). If you are looking for a loyal protector then ask about me, BELLA!

KODA
My name is Koda. I am a middle aged Basset/Dachshund mix. I am making a speedy recovery after treatment for an awful health scare. The picture below is me enjoying a little relaxation in the sun today.
I love big people (little ones make me a bit nervous though). Cats are NOT my thing, mostly because they are so snotty, and clearly I am not, so we just don't run in the same circles of friends because let's face it... it's a dogs life. I'm not a fan of small dogs in my home, but off leash is fine.

GINGER

I'm a real love bug and want to be with you all the time! Although I am 7 years young, don't let my age fool you - I am very healthy and in great shape! I like to get exercise in short spurts so please don't expect me to be your running partner. I am an English Bulldog you know.

I must say I do prefer adult humans, so I should not go to a home with children under 12. Other dogs are fine as long as they give me my space. I have lived with cats before, but I will chase them if they taunt me.

Did I mention that I'm very obedient, crate-trained, house-trained, and love to cuddle? And when you want to lay around, I'm happy to do so, but break out a ball and you will see me turn into a puppy again!

PIERCE

My siblings (Potter, Phoenix and Prue) are Collie mix puppies.

JOSIE

Look at me! I am a sweet tempered Labrador mix about a year old. I am great with kids, dogs, people and I even walk beautifully on a leash. Yep, a total package! 




      
CASEY
My name is Casey and I am a pretty Cocker Spaniel. I am a rather slight little girl (25 pounds) who is quite active considering my age. I am quite happy hanging out with my family in the house or the yard, going for walks. I have a low/medium energy level so I have no problem keeping up. I would do best in a single pet home as I prefer adult people. My foster mom says I am adorable.

LAYNE
Happy news!
Put your paws up in the air for me, Layne. I am officially adoptable! That's right people, I am a pawaplegic (paw impaired) dog with a sassy attitude and a WHOOOOLE LOTTA LOVE! I will always have a limp so my new family must be good with special needs. I do love all dogs and cats. And guess what, guess what, guess what? I am an ambassador! I was walking around Edmonton today, meeting people, talking about DDARS & I even met Mr. Russ Andrews, who does some flights for us...I am pawsitive that I'm going to make someone very happy!"

LETTI

My siblings and I are 9 weeks old Collie mix puppies. Our mom is Layne.


     
LENA
Lena- I'm known as the supermodel in the rescue. Despite my obvious beauty I am tall, graceful and I'm quite lean. I maintain this figure by staying active and I'm a kibble at a time kinda gal! I really need a dog friend in my house because I lack a bit of confidence. A good friend always makes me feel better. I'm good with kids over 4, cats and dogs. I would love if someone is home during the day for a while. I'm such a sweet girl with a nice manner and if someone is looking for a second dog who is a bit shy... I might be your gal. My confidence if gaining daily.

KINDLE

Hey world! I’m Kindle! The best part of today so far is…well… all of it! I LOVE life! I love people! I love dogs! I love Playing! And I LOVE cuddling! My favorite place is under the table, sleeping on moms feet while she works, or on the couch beside one of my kids, preferably touching them, or best yet… snuggled up to you in bed! I’m a lover through and through! I learned this past week how to play fetch and OMG!! It’s AWESOME! I don’t really like my leash, but if it means I get to be near you, then I can certainly deal with that! Sometimes my mom has to leave me for the day (she’s busy with rescue stuff sometimes) but she always leaves me a nice bone to chew on, and even though I’d rather go with her, I’m ok to hang out in my crate until she gets back. I like playing with big dogs more than little dogs because I can be as tough as I want with the bigger dogs and don’t have to worry about hurting them! And by the way… I don’t count as a little dog… I’m still just a puppy….never mind that mom says I’m little for my age… It doesn’t count! Anyway, I would love to meet you! If you think you have a place for a happy dude like me.


GWEN
I have relocated to a Husky rescue in BC where I hope to find a forever home.

Love,
Gwen



MARILYN
Its me Marilyn! I know, I know, I'm a looker, that's how I got my name:)
I have more than just my looks going for me, I am FULL of personality.

I am a 2yr. old Shepherd mix, only weighing about 35lbs. I love people, older children and even those furry felines. Being an only dog in my forever home would suit me best, however I do enjoy having some doggie friends, as long as I am introduced properly and they have a calm personality.

Already I have mastered being house trained, crate trained and am currently working on my leash manners.

MARLEY

Hi DDARS family! It's me, Marley. My time finally came. I had a meet and greet this week and my new mom and dad said I am everything and more in a dog than could hope for. And I have to say the same about them. Best match ever!! Thanks for cheering me on. I'm off to cuddle now, see you all later.

Love,
Marley
 


















LEIA
 Gender: female
  Age: 3 years
  Breed: Chihuahua
  Good with cats: yes
  Good with kids: over 8 years of age
  Good with other dogs: yes
  Energy: low
 
I was given the name Leia because every Chihuahua deserves to be a princess, and really, is there any other princess more classic than Princess Leia from Star Wars? I think not! I am going to live up to my name sake, and embrace all things brave, classy and royal.
I have been working on convincing the other dogs, cat, and my humans that they are my people, and they need to stay around me.  I will be a fair and just ruler!  Full of class and grace – unless you pick me up, then I am not classy or graceful! Ok, don’t judge me!  It’s terrifying to be picked up by giants!!! I will eventually get over that and I’ll send my royal page to announce it.

Update: Sweet little Leia loves warm blankets out of the dryer. If you have a calm household, she might be the girl for you!
