Some dogs have the most expressive faces. That would be Mama (who was just recently a mama in a First Nations community in Quebec). We managed to still find an unoccupied patch of green amongst the CNE machinery and trailers and immediately Mama rolled on her back and waited for belly scratches. I had to prod her with treats to get her to sit.
Mama's been at Toronto Animal Services South for almost two months while she underwent heartworm treatment which involved getting some big, painful needles in her back muscle. She was pretty sore for a while but now she's ready for a home. She's gentle with a good dose of personality. I suspect the first person who meets her will take her home.
Update on Mama here.
As an aside, if you're wondering why she's called Mama, it's because she was rescued along with one of her pups. The pup was immediately adopted by a vet tech at the rescue clinic who looked after the two of them initially but here are some pics before it got whisked away:
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.
