FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED
Winter is a very high risk and dangerous time for abandoned and homeless dogs. Shelter, food and water can make the difference between life and death. In order to rescue animals in these situations we need foster homes at the ready where rescues can stay until a suitable forever home is found. Food, sundries and medical care are provided by DDARS. All you need to provide is the love, attention and a warm place to sleep.
Fostering is a critical piece of the rescue process. Without foster homes we cannot rescue. If you think you might like to foster and would like to know more, please contact us at dukeandduchess@telus.net or phone Amber at 780-721-1827.

Please visit us on Facebook and tune into the rescue action and news in real time.

PIPER
Gender - female
Age: 3.5 years
Breed: Corgi/Shepherd mix
Size: 40 pounds
Good with dogs: most
Good with kids: hasn't met little kids yet...
Good with cats: no
Energy: low-medium

Piper here, although you'd never know it with how quiet I am! Seriously, I never bark. Strange for a dog, but I don't see what all the fuss is about in being noisy. I'd much rather play with my toys, frolic in the snow, and show off some tricks (I'll shake your hand, I'll sit pretty with my paws in the air, and I am sure I'd be happy to learn more!) Overall, I am an easy going girl who loves to be around people. However I have to admit that I don't like cats. They're too different from me and we tend to be like oil and water. We totally don't mix! Doggy friends are okay with me though, we just need a proper introduction. I'm a bit shy when you first meet me, but before you know it I'll become a loyal shadow - always by your side!

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.

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 came from a hoarding situation quite a few months ago as a really scared little princess. My foster mom who has given me such loving care and attention says I am now ready for adoption. I would like another doggie brother or sister to play with because they give me more confidence. If you have a calmer home with older children I would make a loving addition.

JACOB
 Gender: male
 Age: 1.5 years
 Breed: Collie mix
 Good with cats: untested
 Good with kids: yes
 Good with other dogs: yes
 Energy: low
 Size: 55 pounds

 Don't let my young age fool you, I'm actually a deep thinker! I like to lay outside in the snow and reflect on my life as the world goes by. But when I'm not lost in my own thoughts, you can probably find me curled up somewhere safe or on the look out for someone to hug me and give me treats! I love hugs, from people small and tall. I am great with commands and tend to train really quickly because of my love for treats and praise; the secret is you have to be gentle or else my feelings get hurt... I want to do my best for you. I really do. I'm well behaved, crate-trained, and I rarely bark. I'll need your patience helping me to be more comfortable on the leash but I am already getting pretty good because walks are so much fun. I would really love a forever home with other dogs or kids to keep me company, hug me, and never let me go.

CASPER
Gender: male
 Breed: Shepherd/Collie mix
 Age: 4 years
 Good with dogs: yes
 Good with cats: No
 Good with kids: Hasn't met kids yet, but we expect him to be fine due to his gentle nature

Hey everyone, Casper here!
I'm crate trained and I also know, sit, down, and come. I love fast walks and car rides. I haven't really been around kids but they say I would probably do good because of my gentle nature. They tell me I'm calm and mild mannered. I do like to sneak food off the counter but what dog doesn't!? We are working on my people handling my feet so I won't be so scared of nail trims, and I have a little OCD about chewing my nails, but hey...we all have our quirks!! I'm also learning to use my inside bark when visitors come to the door. I'm eager to keep learning and am looking for my own people to help me grow, could you be my people?

ZICO
Gender: male
Age: 4 years
Breed: Retriever mix
Good with dogs: yes
Good with cats: no
Good with kids: we will update soon

Why, Hello! Your Pal Zico here.

My foster mom keeps telling me that she can’t believe what a good guy I am, and I am not just talking about my looks! I am a well-mannered, well behaved, no accidents, one of a kind type of dude!
I have not been in a kennel previous to foster care, but I learn very fast, and will go in the kennel when instructed. What can I say? If it makes you happy, it makes me happy. I know all the tricks, and I know them well! I LOVE TREATS but won’t take them from you until you tell me “OK”.
I really love belly rubs, if I know you are watching, I like to lay on my back, just in case you want to give me some love.
I don’t go on furniture, and even sleep in my own bed at night, I am happy just to be in the same room as you! I only have one fault… cats. I would do best in a home with no cats please. I know you are thinking I am too good to be true, but your wrong! If you don’t believe me, let me prove it to you!

CARSON
Gender: male
 Breed: Elkhound mix
 Size: 40 pounds
 Good with dogs: yes
 Good with kids: yes
 Good with cats: untested

Are you looking for a really affectionate guy that loves to greet everyone and get pets? I'm probably your guy then! My name is Carson and I am a 5 year old male Elkhound mix. I love other dogs, even the pushy little ones, and kids. I've never met a cat before so I'm not sure how I would react. I'm not kennel trained just yet; I've got a bit of anxiety about that whole thing, but we are working on it. I absolutely adore being outside, and this snow is great stuff! They think I would probably wander off if given the chance so I guess it's a good thing I'm a great leash walker. I know how to catch a treat in my mouth and I'm getting really good at wait. I love playing with my people and will even smile for you, my foster family finds it pretty funny. I'm a little anxious in the car but practice makes perfect! Have I mentioned that being brushed is one of my favorite things? And I don't even mind baths. Overall I'm just a big love bug looking for a family to call my own.

BITZ

They call me Mr. Bitz!  I am a 3 year old Terrier mix and weigh only 11 pounds. Dogs, cats and kids big and small are my friends. My leash training is coming along nicely. I have the ability  to counter surf, and haven't met a surface that is too high to jump on yet!! However my foster have been correcting me on that. Oh well, give me credit for my skills! LOL.  Overall, I will make any active family an exceptional pet. 

     

KRAMER
 Gender: Male
 Age: 10 years
 Breed: Collie/Husky mix
 Good with dogs: Yes
 Good with kids: Yes
 Good with cats: No
 Energy: Low
 Size: 60lbs.
 Special needs: Hard of hearing

Looking for a calm, well-trained guy to take life easy with? I've got those things covered. I'm house trained, crate trained, and I walk well on a leash. Don't let my age fool you - I still enjoy the finer things in life, the moment I know we're going for a walk I get extremely excited!!! Walking, eating and sleeping on my soft bed are definitely the finer things in life!! There is one thing I definitely can't have in my new home though, and that's cats. so a cat-free life is the life for me! Also, funny story, I had everyone tricked into thinking I was deaf for awhile but unfortunately they are no longer fooled, and my lack of response is being chalked up to "selective hearing." If it wasn't for the tempting sound of treats being opened or my leash jingling they would have never known... but how are you supposed to ignore those things? Overall, I am a sweet guy who likes to walk, sleep, and eat - the simple pleasures in life

FINN
Gender: male
 Age: 4 years
 Breed: Lab/Staff mix
 Size: 70 pounds
 Good with dogs: yes - calmer dogs
 Good with kids: yes - older
 Good with cats: not tested
 Energy: high

Hello world and get ready to be charmed by yours truly. I am a charismatic guy who likes long walks around the dog park and a good gossip session on occasion - when I am in the mood I can talk your ear off! I've never met a cat, but I get along best with calm dogs and older children that can handle the playful side of me. Obedience is easy peasy for me. I come when called, I can fetch, I sleep in my crate, and I sit when asked. Manners galore over here! My foster mom says my tendency to hide my face under blankets is pretty cute, but I'm pretty sure she can't see me so I don't know what she's talking about. If you think you have a place in your heart for a happy-go-lucky boy like me, I'd be more than happy to love you forever!

TEO

I must be a Leo because I do love being the center of attention!! In return I will give you many kisses and tail wags. Although I don't appreciate toys yet, I do love chewies and bones. I have learned how to get humans around my little paw already, my foster mom says that I'm the only dog she had ever met who can make her feel guilty for not sharing her food with me with just one glance...hehe I've got the feed - me - I'm - cute face perfected to a T! What can I say, a guy has to do what it takes! I'm a sweet happy boy just looking for my forever family to find me...if you come and meet me maybe we can go to the dog store and get us both a treat:)

RIPLEY

Congratulations to Ripley who was adopted. He is all settled in by the fire, chewing a bone. This little guy got his Christmas wish early. His family loves him already.

 A big thank you to his first foster mom who saw him through the surgery on his leg and got him on the road to recovery. Also his second foster mom for taking him the rest of they way.

Thank you to everyone who applied to meet him.  y! Just like typical puppies I do have a cheeky side...don't leave me alone with a roll of toilet paper.. hehe.



  


RAVEN
Hello everyone, I am the lovely dark furred Raven! With my gorgeous multi brown coat, white tipped toes and big brown eyes I will surely melt your heart.
I am a 6 month old female Collie cross who is just finished recovering from a spay and hernia operation.
Strange noises use to scare me sometimes but once I know that I am safe with you, I am fine. My playful puppy side is coming out more every day, but don't worry I am a very good girl in the house.
My favorite things are playing with my dog buddies outside and snuggling on the couch with my kids and of course giving kisses if you ask me to.
I am crate trained, house trained and a super sweet puppy. I am working on my leash manners and getting better every day:)

PEBBLES
Gender: Female
Age: 1.5 years old
Breed: Lab mix
Size: 40 pounds
Good with dogs: yes - she seems to prefer
 females
Good with kids: yes - older
Good with cats: not tested, but she has
 high prey drive
Energy: high

I just got out of the slammer. After spending months in the pound, underweight and starving for attention I'm free! I don't know what I did to get locked up, but now that I'm out I live my life by the motto "if you ain't first, you're last." I love biking and running and playing catch and I fly just like a gazelle when I do because it's so great to be free. I act fast because I never know when I might get the chance to have a good meal, catch a fast ball, or have my belly rubbed again. I'm a sweet, beautiful little lab cross and my foster mom says that sometimes I need guidance to learn that I don't always need to be first. As soon as I get spayed and get my shots, I would love an active family to call my own. Could I be your perfect match?

SHIRLEY

Age: 9 years
Breed: Retriever mix
Good with dogs: Yes
Good with kids: Yes
Good with cats: Yes
Energy: low

My name is Shirley, and you surely need a friend like me. I may be a bit older, but that just means I am more experienced at being a loving dog. I’m pretty well-rounded. I like kids, dogs, and cats - I’m really not picky! But I do take longer to warm up to men than women.  All I need in life is to know someone is around to give me tons of attention and take me for walks so I can amble along and smell the flowers. Sometimes I can be stubborn so you just have to let me know you’re serious when you tell me to do something. I am quite a catch - so why don’t you take a chance on a special lady like me?    

EASTON
If you're looking for an affectionate goofball to be your best friend, look no further.  You know Scooby Doo? That's pretty much me in a nutshell! I mean, I love everybody - kids, cats, and dogs included, but I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to being left all alone. I am one year old Shepherd mix. My foster parents sometimes let me curl up in my crate with a good bone to help me learn that it's okay to be alone for a bit, and that sure helps! But this means I need a forever home with parents that are home more often than not, and a best friend like Shaggy, willing to love me and help me learn to be less of a scaredy-cat!

STORM

They call me Storm but I am really a sunny kinda guy! I am a 1.5 year old Collie/ Shepherd mix.  A big goofy pup describes me best.
Since being in foster care I am learning basic manners and how to walk nicely on a leash. I am GREAT with kids over the age of 12, good with non dominant dogs, and have just met a thing people call "a cat". I will keep you posted on my future interactions with this creature.
I have been pretty sheltered in my life so far and hope to continue with obedience training and get exposure to things like that silly garden hose that scares me so..... yikes!!
Overall I am pretty laid back and don't mind just chillin' with the 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!
