Maggie and Cricket were transferred to Toronto Animal Services South from Kismutt Small Dog Rescue. They are a shy, sweet pair of females with Maggie, the more Terrier looking one, around two years old and Cricket, the black and white one, less than a year. Maggie may be Cricket's mum - we'll never know for sure - but they seem pretty bonded to each other so TAS is going to try to adopt them out together.
Maggie is definitely the more confident of the two. She'll be the first to approach someone for a scratch. She'll also be the first to warn off other dogs if they get too close. Perhaps it's the protective streak in her looking out for Cricket.
Cricket, while a bit more shy, is also much more affectionate once she gets to know you. For the first five minutes, she wouldn't look me in the eyes and then, click, she decided she had to be on my lap and wouldn't get off.
Both of them seem to be very quiet dogs so my guess is they'd be fine living in a condo especially if their owner could sneak them into the sauna every once in a while where they could warm up after a cold walk outside. On Saturday afternoon, after about fifteen minutes both these two were shivering outside even though it wasn't that cold.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
