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.


             
                       
One Dog's Perspective On Loyalty:
Charles Adler of CHED 630 provides one dog's perspective on loyalty. Sadly, this happens all too frequently. 

                    

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

 Good with dogs: yes - calmer dogs

 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!

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.

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:)

SIERRA
"Hi everyone, it's me Sierra Sunshine and I've had the most beautiful morning. My foster Mama gave me a bath and deep conditioning & then I got to wear a scarf and gnaw an antler while she read & we cuddled. She said that I had a Meet & Greet and I thought mmmmmm, I love Turkey and Beef and Pork. Meat is great but I didn't know what Greet was. Soon we had some visitors and you know what? I really loved them a lot and they loved me too! Some people do not believe in it, but It was love at first sight...I swear it's true! I'm so very excited, I'm going to start a brand new adventure with my FURever FAMILY, they adopted me! Thank you DDARS for the paws up and help finding my Mom and Dad!
 Much Love,
 Sierra Sunshine

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:)

BRAVE
We are proud to introduce Brave. This sweet little guy is only about 40 pounds. Brave came to us from NWT. He had a terrible start to life. He was tied up and the rope was embedded so deeply that it cut right through to his trachea. He is completely healed and ready to start his new journey. Brave will be staying in care for a while so we can learn more about him.
Brave is good with cats and kids over 12 years old. He doesn't need to be kenneled. He chooses only to play and chew on toys. He is really good on the leash. Gets along well with other dogs, but can get a little bit jealous. He just wants all the love he can soak up. Who can blame him.

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.

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!
