Our Furry Friends
Scout (Nickname: Scooter)
Scout was rescued from Manitoba in 2019 through the Toronto based organization, Save our Scruff . His DNA test said that he’s a mix of Shih Tzu, Malamute, German Shepherd, Rottweiler and Samoyed – and surprisingly, no Border Collie!
On the weekends he loves to head to the beach to swim in the lake, chew on sticks, dig in the sand, and make new friends. While he’s always a gentleman, when he’s an extra good boy he gets a puppuccino on the way home.
Sir Robin Of Loxley (Nickname: Loxley)
Loxley is a goldendoodle hailing from Ferndale, Washington. Loxley was the subject of Jerry Springer-esque ‘Who is the Father’ episode when it came to his parents!
After a dramatic paternity test and a couple of onstage punch ups, Loxley’s true father was revealed and his status as a medium sized goldendoodle vs standard size was confirmed. Loxley turns 10 in June!
Bowser (Nickname: Barney)
He is a shepherd/husky mix who came from Sandy Paws Rescue. He was born in Texas and 16 months old now. He now splits his time between Martha’s Vineyard and Stowe Vermont.
He loves hikes and romping in the snow as well as swimming in the ocean surfs. He is very loyal and never leaves your side but his true passion is his meals and fetching balls.
Pistachio (Nickname: Lady P, Madam)
Pistachio was rescued from Paris, Texas in December 2019 through the rescue Redemption Paws (@redemptionpaws). We were originally her foster parents but after three months we decided we had to keep her.
When she is not lazing on our couch or bed, she loves to walk along the water in Toronto saying hello to any stranger who meets her gaze or roughhousing with her doggy friend’s at daycare.
Shortly before her adoption she was diagnosed with Kidney disease. Because of a special diet, she cannot eat store bought treats, so for training we had to get creative. Now we know she loves Carrots, Apples and Broccoli. You can follow all her adventures @pistachios_pawrents on IG.
Omaggio’s American Dream AKA Mia (NicknamE: Snuggledog, Miapuppy, Goober)
Mia is a purebred Cane Corso (pronounced CAH-nay COR-so), which is an Italian Mastiff breed. She was born in October 2019 and weighs just over 130 lbs. Both her momma and pop are champion show dogs (yes, the movie Best in Show is an accurate representation). She is one of four girls in her litter and one of her sisters is a breed champion already!
Mia won’t be a show dog, she is considered a companion. Her favorite things are munching green beans, playing fetch, snuggling on the couch, and naps. Mia is a guardian breed, so if you come over unannounced, you’ll hear her big WOOF to alert us of your presence.
When she’s not napping in the sunshine or playing in snow, she loves splashing in Cherry Creek in downtown Denver. She looks intimidating, but really she just wants love and affection.
You can follow Mia @mia.ryan_canecorso on Instagram.
GARBAGE AND MUFFIN
Both Garbage and Muffin are male tabby cats who love to sleep all day and play all night. Garbage’s original name was Gixxer (after Staci’s racebike) but his name was fittingly changed to Garbage after realizing he loves eating plastic plants, styrofoam, and pool noodles. Garbage’s favorite dessert is carpet shards freshly off his scratching post and chasing the occasional cat treat.
Muffy, on the other hand, is a normal scaredy cat. Previously known as Fat due the large amount of extra skin that sways below him when he walks, loves morning treats, brushes, and movie nights. His favorite thing to do is watch squirrels on YouTube and push a ball around a track.
LOLA (NicknamE: Diva, SHOWGIRL, PRINCESS)
Lola is a German/Aussie Shepherd rescue from the Waterloo region. She’s around 15 years old, but like any grande dame, she asked to use her most flattering picture.
She will not fetch or play with other dogs but will happily accept treats and be doted on. Lola use to chase and bark at the wildlife in her backyard, but now she’s happy to just give them a stern look. When she’s not chilling at home, Lola enjoys walks at the Scarborough Bluffs by Lake Ontario.
