Nixon is looking for a home!
This sweet 7 year-old boy is fun, energetic, and full of love. He is fairly well-behaved but doesn’t like to be left alone often. An apartment is not recommended as he’s pretty vocal when he’s lonely! He loves walks, and loves chasing the ball- sometimes he even brings it back! He’s good in the car and gentle on a leash. We think he would be fine with other dogs and cats but we always recommend a proper and safe introduction. He does have chronic ears infections that we are currently treating and may require medication long-term. He also eats a hypoallergenic diet which he should stay on for life.
We would currently like to find a foster-to-adopt home for Nixon. His new family will need to be comfortable treating his ears and bringing him to regular vet visits until he is cleared for adoption.
Please note our dog adoption process:
If you are interested in adopting Nixon please make an appointment with our front desk attendant to come to the shelter, fill out an adoption application and speak with an Adoption Counsellor. We will be accepting applications for his adoption until a suitable family is found. Our Adoption Counsellors will review all the submitted applications and continue the interview process with the most appropriate family(s) for him.
Please remember that we are trying to find the best home for the animals here at BHS. If you are not chosen for this particular adoption, it does not mean that you are an unsuitable owner but we can only choose one family per pet. Also, please keep in mind that there are many other local shelters and rescues that have pets who are in need of a home as well. Please consider researching other local rescues and shelters in your area or visit www.petfinder.com to search through animals available for adoption all over North America.
Nixon’s adoption fee is $150 and includes up-to-date vaccinations and deworming, a microchip, and 6 weeks of pet insurance with Pets+Us. Nixon is neutered, heartworm negative, has been checked over by a veterinarian.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call during business hours at 905-637-7325.
Thank you and rescue on!
