Really? This girl is still at TAS South at the end of the weekend? Maybe the flash floods in Toronto were keeping people away or something but I was thinking this pup would've been gone before I got in to see her. A bunch of dogs got transferred over from TAS West and a bunch of dogs got adopted out over the weekend so I was very surprised to see this one still in her kennel. Anyway, if she isn't adopted by the end of the week, I'm going to start thinking I've stepped into the twilight zone.

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.

    OMG, she so cute!!!!! If we didn't already have our family allotment of animals, I'd swoop in and add her to the menagerie immediately! :)

    Hi - I saw her on the TAS web site on the weekend. I think I may have to pop over and check her out - what's her personality like??

    She's a high energy pup with a lot of personality.

    Golden doodles are amazing. We have one and she's wonderful. They need lots of structured discipline and training but are cuddly, loyal and sweet, and love everyone. Someone grab this girl!

    shelter and rescue dogs are the most grateful and gracious dogs you could possibly share your life with...

    I just wanted to mention the fact that every day when I visit the adoption website and see that Mr. Big is still there, I get a little bit sadder for him.

    If possible, could you maybe write another blog post on him? He's such a handsome guy and I really wish he'd find a lovely home.

    What a sweetheart. I don't see her on the site anymore. I guess she's been adopted. I hope she found a great home!

    I hope she finds her perfect forever home, they all deserve one.

    This perfect pup has found her forever home with me, my partner and our cat Boo. She is fitting in very well and thrieving in her new environment! We love her very much and have named her Willow. Thank you TAS South for all that you did for her! You rate high on my list when adopting a pet.

    Thanks for the update. If you ever get a chance, we'd love to see some pictures. Cheers.

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.
