I never understood why anyone would name a dog breed after a tick. It would be like naming a breed after fleas or mites or something like Jumpy Flea Retriever or Molesting Mite Collie. Then Google saves the day and it turns out "Redtick" refers to all the small red patches on the breed. Huh.
CJ's red ticks, or freckles I prefer to call them, are especially prevalent around his muzzle and feet. He's a confident, intelligent young lad who is highly food motivated and still has a bit of a puppy's energy and curiosity lingering.
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.
