In need of a good home?

I know of a home in search of a dog. (No, not mine, but if you’ve been reading recently, you’ll know who.) If you might happen to know of anyone in the Ottawa area who knows of a big, friendly, mature dog in need of a good home, I’d love to hear from you. Ideally, the dog is well-socialized to people, tolerant with kids, decent on and off a leash, good for long walks and rides in the car, and playful without being overly hyperactive. E-mail me at danicanada (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll put you in touch with someone who would love to hear from you!

Edited to add: found one! They adopted a lovely year-old shepherd mix they found through petfinder.com and named her Max. I guess that takes “Max” out of the running for naming the Player to Be Named Later!

Seriously? My hubby’s work may be relocating us to Ireland for 6 mos. We have a rottweiler/lab cross that is well socialized with people (not dogs though) who we may need to find a temporary home for. She’s almost 8 yrs old, mostly obedient etc… We may be leaving in mid-Feb. Maybe they’d like to dogsit for 5-6 mos?

When we were looking for a dog, we used petfinder.com . Just enter the search criteria and a list of hundreds of needy dogs will pop up.

Thanks for the link to petfinder, M&C. Marla had sent it to me earlier today, which is how my parents found the dog they are in the process of adopting, if all goes according to plan!! 🙂 She’s a rescue dog, a young shep mix. Looks lovely! Keep your fingers crossed for them!

Looks like they found one pretty quick.

I know some lab/shep cross puppies that will be looking for a good home. They are rescues from a farm and will cost only the vacinations and neutering. Are they up for puppies though?
