Her fosters call her their "Egyptian Princess" but we call her JOSEY! This girl is an adorable Retriever/Spaniel mix (our best guess) and weighs a healthy 55lbs at the ripe age of 10 months! JOSEY settled in pretty quickly! She has scars and scrapes (which we are treating) from her past but is looking forward to a better future in a furever home. She is super affectionate and happy to meet new friends, both people and dogs. She will do anything for a ear scratch.. including doing her best to be a lapdog. She is learning how to be a house pet by getting used to routine, learning her manners and basic commands. She will although need to adjust to your schedule and will need support becoming housebroken and well mannered. She loves getting exercise and is eager as ever to race or jog with you down the street. When I met her the day she arrived in Canada, the first thing she did was hug me. And then she did it again and again and again. I'm totally not a hugger but it did touch my heart. If you're not a hugger either, her beautiful brown eyes will get you!! She hasn't had much experience with other dogs in our care but has been great with the two she has met. She's excited to see dogs on walks and is not shy at all. A few times she has been a bit protective of her new human friends and has growled/barked at others coming over when she is getting pet. She may need some help with this but we will see how it processes as she continues to settle. She has been around kids and is great with them but as stated above, she is also a bit unpredictable! She doesn't love cats, as she has never had to co-habitate -- but she can likely be trained into recognizing them as her friends! She is getting spayed soon but is ready to start meeting potential new families! This lovable girl is in Toronto! Fill out an adoption application.
