Leia

ADOPTED!!
 

Cat - Leia

My name is Leia (aka ‘Fluffy’ and ‘Fluffball’).  I came into foster care with my sister Luke (yes sister…it’s a long story).  My foster family is always telling me how fluffy and cute I am.  I am an excellent hunter of toys and enjoy chasing my sister around the house.  I love when my foster humans let me drink water out of the sink tap.  I’m cool with the resident cats, and have built an alliance with them that allows us to share a bit of food once in a while.  I enjoy snuggling beside my foster humans, and usually sleep on their bed at their feet at night.  The kids at my foster home are great, because they are good at playing with the toys with me.

 

When you adopt me I promise to hang out to keep you company and share lots of fluffy snuggles with you.

Cat - Loki

Loki
Adopted March 2022

Hi! I’m Loki. I am the kitty of mischief. I was the first one of my siblings to explore the whole house in my foster home. I love playing with my siblings and Interactive toys are my favourite. I am a good boy and I scratch my claws  on the cat tree and not my homans furniture. I eat really well and I use the litter box. I love to meow and cuddle.

 

I am still shy about playing with the older cats in the foster home but we get along great now. I’m also no longer afraid of the dog

Lola

ADOPTED JAN 2022

Lola is a gorgeous female, about 3 years old but pretty lazy and laid back for her age. We don't really know her history but we know, it has been a rough one for her, that left her with an adorable lazy eye. Because of this she might have bad eye sight and isn't much of a jumper or runner. She loves the outdoors on her leash and her canine foster sister Aurora for snuggles. Because of her past she is still getting used to being picked up and cuddled. She loves gentle pets and snuggles, but hugs and being carried around are a bit scary for her.

This super sweet lady needs a calm & loving home with kids old enough to understand her past and that she needs some time to trust and warm up to you. Then she will be a lazy, food loving, cuddle bug!

Sounds like the cat you were always looking for?

Scarlet and Timba - Bonded Pair

Adopted Dec 2021

Timba named for what seemed like a timid personality has totally blossomed into an outgoing, cuddly and adventurous kitten!  Even when he is racing around trying to create chaos if you pick him up and scratch his head he melts into you and starts to purr. If his beautiful blue eyes don’t win you over his personality definitely will!

Scarlet has been outgoing from the start.  She is a calm and loving kitten but when she and her brother get playing she is full of sass! Her purr out weighs her body size and she has the most striking markings. She also loves the resident cat and dog and tried to rub up against them to show her affection.  

 

You will never be short of laughs watching the antics of these two. They love to run and climb and wrestle with each other so will need a home that can accommodate that in a safe manner.  If you are looking for two cats that will love you as much as each other, Scarlet and Timba would be a perfect fit!

Gracie.jpeg

Gracie
Adopted November 2021

Sweet little Gracie is unlike many other cats, in that she loves to cuddle and be held. She's never far away - preferring to sit with you, sleep on whatever you're trying to work on or nudge you to play. She loves to play - especially playing catch with a pink hoodie string. We throw it for her and she races after it, picks it up and brings it back to us for another round.  She's quick - sliding across the hardwood to catch the string and nibble - able to jump to window skills so she can watch the world go by. After a long day of sleeping, eating and playing, she cuddles with us, purring away, so content. Her little meows wake us in the morning, excited to start a new day - oh, and of course, to be fed :)

Stevie

Adopted August 2021

If you are looking for the perfect cuddle buddy who occasionally snores, Stevie is the perfect dog for you. Stevie is an energetic, resilient, all around happy dog. She has a way of lightening the mood wherever she goes with her funny quirks, such as her little owowow houl! Stevie plays well with all dogs and has been around cats without any issues. She is always excited to meet a new friend, whether they be small or large! As such she would benefit from a confident walker as she tends to pull when something catches her eye. Can you blame her other dogs and bunnies are so exciting?!? She also benefits from a doggy seatbelt in the car to keep her in one spot and is responding well to high rewards to regain her focus. Continuing to work on this will further help Stevie learn proper car etiquette. In addition, Stevie is an absolute rockstar when it comes to new environments. She fit in seamlessly into her foster home and has enjoyed that there is a dog and more people to play with! Stevie has been around kids, including those with special needs, and is excited to learn that they also love to play and give her pets! She absolutely loves a good match of tug-a-war and has a soft spot for a squeaky plushy. Whoever ends up with Stevie has hit the jackpot in the best friend department! She would love to join you on all your outdoorsy adventures and then cuddle in bed afterwards.

Granite (Tig) is a very brave and adventurous boy. Tig knows no fear and approaches every opportunity head on. In just a few days he learned that going outside for your "business" gets you little parties and he has been at the door ever since. He is still a bit nervous alone in his crate at night but he is getting better every day. He is great with all kinds of dogs and cats and is already doing a great job in adjusting his play style to his playmates. Tig can nicely sit for treats and his bowl and loves to snuggle. His puppy teeth are sharp and he is still learning to understand where he can use them and when to use his nose instead. Tig is an amazingly smart and brave puppy that would do well in any kind of family!

Charlie

ADOPTED

Meet CHARLIE!! a.k.a Charlie Davidson (his foster family lovingly gave him this nickname because of the cute noises he makes while playing)!

Charlie is a healthy, happy and energetic senior boy. He enjoys playing with his foster brother Spud and can really bounce and run. So far we have learned that he really loves naps on the couch, belly rubs and having his beautiful coat brushed. Charlie is gentle and we'll mannered, patient with younger dogs and children providing they respect his space but has been known to chase a cat or two. He would be best suited for a more laid back lifestyle, he enjoys walks and is an angel on leash.

Charlie is on daily anti-seizure medications but his previous family said that they haven't seen him have a seizure in years.

Charlie is looking for stable home that will shower him in the love he deserves. One look into his big brown eyes and you'll be in love just like we are!

If you are looking for a loyal, empathetic and goofy dog Timber is the perfect dog for you. Timber has this special way of making those around her feel at ease. She makes you appreciate the small stuff and gives THE BEST cuddles!

Timber does well with all dogs and has been around cats (though she is curious to see if they will play with her). Timber is good with children, including those with special needs. She would make a great family dog! Timber is beggining to learn basic commands and is proud to report that she is a quick study, particularly so if you have tasty snacks.

Timber's ideal date would include hopping through a tall grassy field, playing fetch or tug-a-war and finishing off the evening by munching on some ice while staring out the window. You might even get lucky (you will) by getting some smooches and the best cuddles of your life.

My foster dad tells me I am a very good girl, quick to learn and eager to please and I agree 100% with him.  
I have been in a house with cats and they are very interesting but I respect their space.  I love playing chase and tug with all the dogs in the house.  I can’t wait to get all my vaccines so I can get out on a walk and explore the world.  I have met a lot of people and love to snuggle with them all.

Do you enjoy the outdoors and walks?  If so I am the girl for you.

Aurora (Rory)
ADOPTED

Her two favourite things are belly rubs and walks. She enjoys the company of cats and is playful with other dogs. She has had no exposure to kids in our care but think she would adjust just fine to them.
Rory is currently working on her alone time, it is important that her new family has the time and dedication to continue working with her on this. She is a bit of an escape artist so a secure backyard is a must, she does well with the extra security of a long lead outside.
Considering Rory was feral before coming to us and free to explore outside on her own, she does exceptionally well on leashed walks - no pulling! She is smart, good at listening, and picks up on new cues quickly. Rory is house trained although prefers to do her business while on walks. She is quiet for a husky, which is a rare find if you know much about huskies!
Rory thrives off daily walks and mental enrichment (Have you checked out the Canine Enrichment page on facebook? If not, you should!). She is a sweet & gentle girl ready for her new life as a loved family pet!
Her ideal home would be a relatively quiet one, with a family that is home more often than not, a lover of the outdoors just like her and possibly has another dog!

ADOPTION PENDING

Hi!  I’m Beatrix, or as my foster mom calls me, “Little B”.

Although curious, I prefer to sit back and assess new situations and can be a little timid at first. I am working on building my confidence and my foster mom says I get more self-assured every day. The more comfortable I get, the more I want to explore!

I prefer to be close to my foster mom and I make great company when she’s working from home; I curl up on a blanket or bed beside her and sleep.  I am working on my alone time – I don’t care for being confined, especially in an xpen but a kennel is okay. I express my displeasure initially, but quiet down, especially if there is music!  I find it relaxing…

I love to play with my stuffies and toys; I enjoy the challenge of puzzles, the snuffle mat and treat balls. I am beginning to master a game called fetch and am proud of myself when I bring the toy back. I have two foster sisters, who were pretty intimidating at first because they are so much bigger than me, but now, I crawl all over them, play tug (they let me win most of the time) and we all chase each other around the backyard. I tattle on them when they take my toy (typical little sister stuff), or bark at them when I want them to play with me.

I am working at doing my business outside and more often than not will go sit by the door, asking to go out. I am learning my basic commands and can “sit”, “come”, “lay down” and my foster mom is teaching me more, or trying to… she tells me to ‘stay’ and then walks away from me…. What’s up with that??

If you’re looking for a forever friend who is loyal, sweet, sassy and cuddly who loves to play, I’m your girl!

Maggie

Looking for a new bestfriend? Maggie is your girl! Maggie had a rough start to life but that hasn’t seemed to have any effect on her silly and friendly personality. She walks very well on leash and loves to be around her people. She can be frightful of new dogs and looks to you for comfort but is not at all reactive - she just needs a bit of encouragement and she warms up very quickly.
She will need an active home as she gets very restless when she’s bored. She loves puzzle games, lick matts, and interactive treat balls. She is very unsure about fetch but she loves to chase her foster sister while she plays. We are still working on potty training-she is uncomfortable going to the washroom on a leash at the moment but we are seeing improvements everyday. She loves to make her people happy so she is eager to learn.
She loooves to cuddle. Both humans and dogs. She even brings her kong or bone over to her foster sister to cuddle up (sometimes on top of her) while she chews.
Maggie is very quiet and has only barked a handful of times since I got her- she’s good with cats and children but has not met any infant children yet but I’m confident she would do well.
She does need someone who is patient and willing to take her to training classes as she is very new to hearing basic commands. Everyday she is getting better and better as she adjusts to being in a home.
Also, have you seen her eyes!?! She is a gorgeous pup!

Aspen

Hi!  My name is Aspen or AJ for short. In my foster home, it can get pretty confusing, as my foster sister has the same name, so when we are all together as a pack, my foster mom calls me AJ but when it is just the two of us, she calls me Aspen.
My foster mom says I am so, so handsome and a perfect combination of sweet and ‘saucy’. I am comfortable having down time, whether it is playing with toys by myself, time cuddled up with one of my foster sisters, or snuggled in with my foster mom.
According to my foster family I am a bit cheeky… I honestly don’t think it’s a bad thing if I voice my opinion on things - I figure I need to stand up for myself as my foster sisters are so much bigger and it is so easy for them to take my toys. So, when they do, I chase them around the house ‘telling’ them to give them back.
I play hard with my foster sisters, but when they have had enough, I am more than willing to go to the toy box, turn it over and find a toy to play with by myself. I am also an excellent helper when my foster mom is sweeping the floor!  I love to chase the broom and try to ride it around the house.
I can be a little uncoordinated, but if you saw the size of my paws compared to the rest of me, you wouldn’t be surprised. I am pretty sure my clumsiness is why my foster sisters steal my toys because I usually end up wiping out a couple of times, but pop back up and continue my pursuit! I have mastered going up stairs, but we are working on coming down. Apparently, my foster mom can’t carry me forever… I don’t know why it’s such a big deal – I know I’m growing fast, but I cuddle and give kisses when she carries me, that’s a bonus right?
I am a pretty smart little dude…. I love to learn and can ‘sit’, ‘come’, ‘paw’ and ‘down’. I am working on ‘gentle’, ‘leave it’ and ‘stay’ but those are a little tougher for me as I suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out). My foster sister is teaching me how to ring a bell at the back door to have the door opened, so I can go do my business… but I thought the cord was a perfect chew toy, so my foster mom had to fix it (Oooops!).
I am an excellent sleeper in my kennel at night – sometimes I scare my foster mom when I am so quiet (teehee). I do prefer my kennel to an x-pen when my foster mom leaves the house and am getting more comfortable in my kennel in the truck.
Overall, I am a sweet, fun, curious and energetic boy who loves learning and having new experiences. I would be so excited to find my forever family to share in adventures and make wonderful memories.

100% guaranteed - my eyes tell the story.  Just one look and you will know how cute I am!  And my pouty eyes suit my personality as I am so darn sweet and will melt your heart!  I am pretty laid back in the house but do love a game of chase with my buddies.  Not only am I cute, I am so darn smart.  Well at least I think so.  Show me a treat and I will show you have fast I can sit.  Down – well not as quick but I am starting to figure it out.  But I did tell you I was smart, as I let my sister do the ‘down’ for both of us and we both get a treat.  Told you I was smart!  I also know shake a paw and can spin (well sometimes as I do have better things to do).  
I am starting to hang out in my crate all by myself.  After being with 9 siblings this alone time isn’t so bad!   I am still working on potty training but if you tell me to go the door, I know to go outside to go potty.  I love meeting people and playing with other dogs.  My mom says I will be a great hiker as I love the outdoors and love to explore and climb.  
As I am very special, so my foster mom said I get to pick my family.  Yahoo!   Do you think you will be a perfect family for me?  If so, fill out an application so I can meet you.

Ciara

Hi everyone!! My name is Ciara and I don’t understand why no one wants to adopt me!
I’m a very good girl and I know how to sit, down, shake a paw & high five.
As you can see from my photos, I love going on adventures! My foster mom took me to Banff and I got to walk on frozen water
I also love car rides; I get to look out the window and see so many new things and then have a great nap after!
I love to wrestle with my foster brother and enjoying laying outside in my backyard - I could spend hours out there! I watch the birds, chase the leaves, watch the neighbours and chew on sticks!
I enjoy going out for walks and I LOVE squeaky toys - those are so much fun! I am amazed with the bath tub, who knew I could have a giant water dish. I promise that I will be the best adventure buddy you could ask for if someone would just want me and give me a chance!

Riley

Hello World! My name is Riley. I am a 12 week old little fluff ball that is full of playful energy. I love playing fetch in the backyard, wrestling with my big humans and playing hide and seek with my small humans.

I rock at sitting and am getting really good at staying put when told. I’m super motivated by treats and snuggles but find me a pup or human who isn’t?!

I live for cuddles! Curling up in my human’s lap is my jam! While I love my snuggles I also enjoy having some solo time sprawling out, belly up. I usually take a stuffy to my crate to just chill out on my own.

Sometimes loud noises scare me but a tight cuddle and teaching me what’s happening really helps me to learn and relax.

Cats intrigue me but they just don’t get my energy. I think another dog to wrestle and play with would be much more my style.

I’d love to meet you and smother you with puppy kisses and cuddles. I just know that we’ll be besties for life.

Bosley

If you are looking for an awkward, loveable doofus look no further! Bosley is a very sweet and curious fellow. He came to pause4change after being rescued from a feral pack of 16 dogs.

Bosley has adapted incredibly well to house life. He is house trained and able to be left in a secure room while his humans are at work. He is picking up walking on a leash incredibly fast. He sleeps all through the night in our bedroom. He loves to give us morning cuddles and paw us for pets. He is seriously the cutest!

He has come so far since he first came to pause4change! The biggest key for him is getting time to asses the situation and receiving encouragement through positive reinforcement.

I am also very happy to announce that Bosley likes kids! He has been around children who understood to let him come to them for pets. He is very curious of them and happy to learn that they also feed him snacks. His favorite snack is cheese!!

Ideally, Bosley would do well in a house with another dog to help show him the ropes of the world. He looks to his foster sibling for guidance when unsure of a new situations. Bosley also loves to play tug a war and fetch his squeekie toys with people and dogs!

Bosley is seriously a one in a million dog. Whoever ends up with Bozzles has hit the doggy jackpot.

Gemma.jpg

Gemma

What can we say about Gemma? First off, she absolutely adores any and all attention. She thinks the world of her people and loves to sit on their laps and shower them with kisses. She is the perfect lap dog minus her size! Please note she is still working on losing her COVID weight (aren’t we all).   

Gemma is calm, loving and well-mannered in the house. She will happily sit and shake-a-paw if you have a tasty snack (typical lab). Due to her background of being force-bred, she benefits from a calm environment where she can relax and be herself. Sometimes the outside world can be scary! She is very vocal in her everyday life whether that is warning a dog off or snoring the nights away. Her first instinct when seeing a dog is to growl. She has been participating in Dogwit’s reactivity class and has shown tons of improvement! She has played well with other dogs when introduced properly and is not nearly as reactive as she used to be. Due to her nature, she would benefit from an empathetic and confident dog walker. Her strong reactions come from her fear that a dog may attack her, but she is learning to trust again. As we all know, building trust a second time takes time. Putting ourselves in her shoes and understanding why she is afraid is the key to Gemma’s success. Pause4Change is dedicated to helping Gemma’s new family understand what is a trigger to her and why it is happening. We will be with you every step of the way.

Gemma got her name because she really is a diamond in the ruff. Her calm and gentle temperament brighten every room. If you know anything about diamonds you're familiar with the 4 C's. We like to think Gemma is a cut above the rest as she is calm, courteous, cute and cuddly.

Holly1.jpg

Holly

My name is Holly! I am an adorable, smart, and playful puppy with tons of energy. I love long walks, tug of war, and playing fetch. I also know how to sit, lay down, stay, and shake my paws. I love learning new tricks as long as treats are involved.

I may not look it but I am a cuddle monster, after a good walk I want nothing more than to snuggle up to my human and get some belly rubs. I also won’t complain about being picked up, in fact I enjoy being carried around, it makes me feel like a princess. Watch out though cause the closer I am to your face the more likely I am to give you kisses.

I am very friendly and love to play with other animals. I am also very curious and have met tons of other animals from cats to bunnies and deer, my first instinct to want to play with them but I am learning that not all other animals want to play with a puppy and that’s okay. I am looking for a home with humans that love to go on adventures just as much as they love to cuddle. Also a home with humans that give me challenges and help me learning new tricks to keep me busy. I am comfortable with big and small humans as well as other animals, the more people and animals the better!

I am the last of the forest litter available, and I can’t wait to meet you and show you what I am all about!
