Chestnut is a very sweet girl! One of her favourite things to do is to snuggle on the couch with her foster family. She unfortunately wasn’t feeling well after she arrived in Canada (she was recovering from pneumonia), but after some medication and a lot of love she is now doing great and is ready to find her forever home!
She is good with both cats and dogs! She is a nervous girl so she can be reactive to new dogs and people when she’s on walks. But once she knows they mean no harm she is very friendly towards them. This is something her adopter will have to work on with her to help build her confidence.
She has started to come out of her shell more and has started playing with her favourite ball. She also likes playing with her foster dog sibling!

Why We Love Fostering
We love fostering because the dogs bring so much love and joy into our home. Seeing them adjust to life in a home, come out of their shells and become their happy, playful selves is so rewarding. It's also a great feeling so see them got adopted by a home that will love them forever. The foster dogs also have a lot to teach us about resilience, adaptability, trust and unconditional love. They inspire us to be better versions of ourselves. If they can survive their histories while still being loving and happy, so can we.
*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
