My name is Over Easy and sadly I was separated from my pups a few months ago (the Breakfast Food pups: Waffle, Bacon, Omelet, etc.). It was a harrowing experience – one that no mother or her pups should have to go through. The good news is that all my babies were rescued and are living with their families.
I am from Whapmagoostui where Animatch gets a lot of their adoptees. It is a remote and isolated part of the country, and we don’t have regular shipments of dog food or supplies (including collars and tags) let alone access to veterinary care. In fact, there is limited medical facilities for humans; many are living without things that are readily available in other parts of the country. Something must happen to help our community and it isn’t happening fast enough. I dream of a different life for my canine pals that I left behind. Here is what I wish for.
SPAY/NEUTER program is one solution to end the overpopulation. Every puppy that comes into this world is entitled to a home with sufficient food, shelter, and veterinary care. In addition, there must be a COMMITMENT made to every puppy born to keep him safe for the 10 to 15 years of his life.
Northern Communities like mine often face difficult decisions about their dogs. They get injured and the unsterilized males get into dog fights all too frequently. Animatch is there to lend support but changes must also come from within the community. The most important one is to accept that once a dog is part of a family, it’s a lifetime commitment. An adjustment of attitude must happen, dogs should not be someone’s dog for a year or two – it’s a 10-to-15-year deal!
Whapmagoostui is ready to welcome their first Mobile Veterinary Vehicle which will be equipped to do sterilizations and offer veterinary aid. Every dog should then be sterilized – no excuses. Now that there is an animal control officer, we hope that dogs will be licensed in the future so that dogs can be reunited with their family. Dogs are part of Whapmagoostui and we love our land – I long for the day when we can remain part of the North.
Now on to the main topic – me and finding me a home. I could use some work walking on leash; obedience training would go a long way to make our outings pleasant with the added bonus of boosting my confidence. I get along with other dog if introduced properly. Cats; well, they are like squirrels to me and like to be chased. I would do better in an adult home or one with children over 12.
Slow and easy would be the way to go with me. I am a shy gal and am not yet willing to readily cast my affections upon an unfamiliar face, so I ask for a little patience before I relinquish my love. I have a winding road of training ahead of me if you want me to be the best dog that I can be.
If you are ready to commit to me through thick and thin, I might just be the dog for you. Fill in an application form and tell me all about yourself. Let’s start our life together.
Please note that due the volume of applications, we are unable to respond to all applicants and ONLY those being considered will be contacted. We thank you for your understanding. The adoption application link is posted below and the adoption process is outlined on the website. Animatch asks that you read the Adoptee’s bio in its entirety before applying to ensure you meet the requirements for the dog.
