My name is Saphira
I am a 2 year Shepherd x Collie and I was recently surrendered to the OSPCA. My owner could not afford to care for me anymore. Unfortunately I have had seizures since I was 7 months old, and I am now on daily medication to help me live like a normal dog. I am two years old I have previously lived with children and get a long with all age groups. I have also lived with dogs and get along well with all. I am currently in a foster home which have cats and I am enjoying their company. I am looking for a forever home or a rescue who can help me live a long, happy, healthy life. The vets say I should have more bloodwork done to rule out epilepsy -- worst case, I could potentially have a neurological issue. I could be on medication for life. The shelter that I am currently in is very full with other medical issue dogs so cannot fully fund my medical bills. Please if there is anyone out there who can help me, Please call Megan Morrow; Arrivals Counselor Newmarket OSPCA at 905-898-7122 x 385. or by email
for more information. Thank you. (Ed note: sorry photo is sideways, couldn't correct. Saphira has NOT had any seizures since coming into foster...)
Meet Jake, a handsome 3 yr old Redbone Coonhound with a love of life, and the great outdoors. He is a big fan of the dog-park and happily runs to greet all newcomers at the gate. This calm, friendly boy would make a loving and loyal companion and a good walking partner. Jake was rescued from Kentucky where his days were numbered but sadly he has spent much of his time in Canada languishing at a kennel while waiting for a foster or permanent family. Although Jake loves everybody he meets, he does tend to bond and become somewhat possessive of his female caregiver and has, on occasion, been grumbly (although never bitten) the male of the house and both times he was indoors. Jake needs a kind woman with large dog experience and no males in the home to foster the big guy or better yet, welcome him into their family. A dog buddy would be no problem for him as he gets along with everyone. Lovable Jake would also need a decent sized yard. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Ed note: regrets, last week's post -- email was inaccurate)
Penny is approx 1 1/2 -2 years old and is a Norwegian Elkhound/Shepherd cross. She was hit by a car in January 2015 and was not claimed by her owner. She received medical care for her injuries and is in the care of Clarington Animal Services. She has made an amazing recovery and the ligaments and tendons in her pelvic area continue to heal well. Due to the healing process, Penny requires a special home. To avoid injury, she requires a home where there are no other pets or small children. She also needs to be on the main floor of a home, or in a bungalow style home. She can easily manage a few stairs to get outside but is not allowed to be on stairs beyond that. She needs a home that has carpeting as she could slip on wood or ceramic floors. She is not allowed to run as she is still healing but gentle exercise is required to help her gain strength in her hind end. Penny loves attention and is ready to be adopted into a home by someone that understands her needs. She needs a nice quiet home with a fenced backyard. Clarington Animal Services will not be placing Penny in foster care. They are located at 33 Lake Road Bowmanville. 905 623 7651. Please help Penny find the home that she needs. Your help is greatly appreciated.

for quite sometime now. He has come a long way. We know from his previous owners that he did not do well or respond well to corrective training. He needs a gentle yet firm handler. He is extremely food motivated too. He seems to do OK with bigger dogs who are NON-confrontational. If another dog reacts, Barkley will too. No small dogs should be around him as he has been returned 2X in past going after smaller dogs (injuring them.....prey drive). He walks ok on a leash (harness).. He has been doing really well in our off leash park (he is the only one in there) with recall and he LOVES chasing a ball and bringing it back and running! We know Barkley is a fantastic boy and so very easy to work with. He needs someone with experience in positive training and with the breed as he will requires MUCH exercise.
Can you help Barkley find a rescue group to help him by posting him please? If anyone is able to help him can you please tell them to e-mail our rescue email address at
