Trinity came into Toronto Animal Services with her brother. Trinity is quite friendly with people but her brother, Morpheus, not so much. At five months, Morpheus has a bit of a nipping habit so he was sent off to the Toronto Humane Society where they have the time and expertise to stop that behaviour before it gets any worse.

The growing partnership between TAS and the new THS will only result in more animal lives being saved and this is a clear example of that. Let's hope this partnership continues and evolves. Good luck to Morpheus and much thanks to the THS for helping him out.

As for Trinity, she's a beauty with striking blue eyes and sharp as a whip. She'll be a fantastic dog for someone soon.

For adoption information on this dog and other dogs (and cats and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.

    Great looking girl. Does she have normal hearing? Love the one up, one down ears. Hopefully a good diet will deal with that soon.

    I think her hearing is okay.

  3. OH my and we thought the gremlin-shitzu mix was otherworldly. She seems straight out of some fairy tale. And then with a name like Trinity... Hope all goes well for Morpheus as well. I am glad I am in Ohio because there's only so much I can torment myself over not being able to adopt her.....

    What a beautiful girl. On the subject of huskies - Pet Connection blog yesterday had an appeal from Outdoor Adventures Whistler - they have 35 retired sled dogs who are looking for foster or adoptive homes. If you scroll down today's page it's the third article down.

    Sorry Fred - I didn't read the comments on the article - apparently they have found homes for all of them.

    Hey Monica, that's great news for those Huskies.

The reason for this blog is to help get specific dogs adopted from TAS but equally important is to try to normalize the idea of shelter dogs being just as good and just as desirable as any other dogs including those which are regularly merchandised by backyard breeders, puppy millers and those few remaining pet store owners who still feel a need to sell live animals. The single greatest stigma shelter animals still face is the belief that shelter animals are substandard animals. Anyone who has had enough experience with shelter animals knows this is untrue but the general public hasn't had the same experiences you've had. They see a nice dog photo in a glossy magazine and too many of them would never think of associating that dog with a dog from a shelter. After all, no one abandons perfectly good dogs, right? Unfortunately, as we all know, perfectly good dogs are abandoned all the time.

The public still too often associates shelter dogs with images of beat up, sick, dirty, severely traumatized animals and while we definitely sometimes see victims such as these, they are certainly not the majority and, regardless, even the most abused animals can very often be saved and made whole again.

Pound Dogs sometimes discusses the sad histories some of the dogs have suffered. For the most part, though, it tries to present the dogs not as victims but as great potential family members. The goal is to raise the profiles of animals in adoption centers so that a potential pet owner sees them as the best choice, not just as the charity choice.

So, here's the favour I'm asking. Whenever you see a dog picture on these pages you think is decent enough, I'd like you to consider sharing it on Facebook or any other social media sites you're using (I know many of you do this already and thank you for that). And when you share it, please mention that the dog in the photo is a shelter dog like so many other shelter dogs waiting for a home. If we can get even five percent of the pet buying public to see shelter dogs differently, to see how beautiful they are and how wonderful they are, and to consider shelter dogs as their first choice for a new family member, we can end the suffering of homeless pets in this country.
