Go ahead and love me because I'm beautiful
They call me : Holly

Predicted Breed: Poodle mix.
Sex: Spayed female
Approximate Age: 8 years.
Weight: 12 Lbs.
Rescued from: California
Likes: Walks, scritches, hugs, laying in the sun, and all the naps!
Dislikes: Being left alone for too long, new or scary situations, and being surprised.
Ideal Home: Holly's ideal home would be with a family that is home more than they are gone, a home that isn't extremely active but will still take her out for walks every day. She likes being around her people and is warming up to cuddle time. She would likely do well with another super chill dog sibling to help her relearn to navigate life as a recently blind girl. She would prefer a detached home as she is currently very vocal. This may settle as she adjusts to her environment but is not guaranteed to change. A fenced yard for potty breaks would also be a plus for both you and her. A home with little to no stairs would be most ideal since she is still learning to navigate as a blind pup.

Detached home, Senior home, Quiet home, Left alone 2-4 hrs only

Due to Holly's Fear Aggression we are only accepting applications from families with dog experience and live in the Calgary area.

Energy Level: Low-medium
Experience with Kids: Children are not recommended
Experience with cats: unknown
Medical Needs: Due to her reactivity/ anxiety in new or scary situations, Holly has been on anxiety medication and would benefit from continued use. Her demeanor has shown great improvements and she is less stressed/ anxious overall.  Holly is blind.
Training Needs: Holly recently lost her eyesight (full Enucleation surgery) due to an infection that was left untreated in her former life. She will need someone who is extremely patient and can spend time with her to help her adjust to life as a blind dog and overcome her fear-aggression. She has made great improvements in her foster home and given time, effort, and patience; I believe this will become a non-issue. Holly also needs patience with putting on and taking off her harness as she is unsure of this and needs a family who can be patient with this process. Once you get it on she loves to go outside and sniff around :) Holly is still learning to navigate blind and needs someone to help her with building her confidence even while on walks.

Needs basic training, Barks indoors, Fearful

From Holly's Foster: 

Holly is a very sweet little girl. She loves scritches when you get home and will lift her paws for a hug (once she is used to you). Holly loves napping, playing with treat balls/ toys, and going for shorter walks (more of a sniff fest in the park really). She does scare or startle easily and is intimidated by new situations or challenges (ie: stairs in and out from the patio, getting on/ off an elevator) That being said, with time, practice, and a lot of patience, she picks these things up fairly quickly, considering her recent blindness. I think with the right person/ family, Holly will become the best picnic in the park and couch buddy one could hope for. Can you help Miss Holly-Lolly find her Fur-Ever home?!

Double the cuteness, double the fun!

From Mandy and Tiny's Foster: 

Mandy & Tiny are EXCEPTIONAL dogs! They are so sweet, kind & loving. They are totally house-trained & get along well with other dogs, cats, children & strangers. They love to go for walks & play but are also perfectly content to enjoy their retirement lounging on the couch. It will be a lucky family indeed that gets to add this add this amazing duo to their brood!
