Another Georgia dog care of Ashley Hyslop. Photos are by Bridget McDermid.
Please meet Bat! There is something very special about her! Bat came from a kill shelter in Georgia. She had three strikes against her in Georgia – she was black (black dogs do not get adopted in the Southern States); she was Heartworm positive (but has since been treated successfully); and worst of all she was brought into a shelter that had no adoption program
Bat had a guardian angel looking out for her – she was fully treated for Heartworm and brought up to Toronto where she had a much better chance of finding her forever home.
Bat is an amazing dog! She is such a sweetheart. It takes her a few moments to warm up to people and she plays the shy girl act – however once she’s comfortable she becomes your shadow and tries to be a lap dog. Bat will fight for all your attention – so working on boundaries with her is a must. She is great at kissing and giving lots of cuddles. Bat is approx 1.5 years of age and was brought in as a stray! She is calm and friendly however training would be great as Bat is very smart and still quite young.
She loves other dogs and people. Bat is great in a crate and is a quiet dog! She loves the dog park – once she gets warmed up she loves running laps around the park! Bat is asking that you give her a chance because she will totally melt your heart!
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.
