About Carol

Carol is a super sweet, amazingly well behaved dog. She learns very quickly, and loves attention!

Carol is friendly with other dogs, but needs proper, slow introductions. She is nervous around new people and can get territorial of new people in her home. On walks she cautiously approaches new people and with patience warms up to them well. Older children are recommended. 

Carol loves her walks and you would never know she has a hip issue. She has excess bone growth on her femoral head, which could cause pain in the future. At this time she does not require any surgery or daily medications.

Carol is able to dictate her own exercise as well. However, she will likely develop osteoarthritis in her hip and she could need surgery down the road. Her adopter must be prepared to continue her care and monitor her exercise.

Trained to sleep in the crate at night. She doesn’t really like it during the day as she just wants to be with her people. She loves her toys and can be found tossing them around the house. When not playing she’s in her favourite dog bed, napping. 

Can pull on leash at times as she has a very high prey drive wanting to chase squirrels or cats. No small animals in the house preferred. 

A family that has someone home most of the time would be great as she does experience some separation anxiety. 

Adoption Fee | $500

Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.

Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.

Why We Love Fostering

  • There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering opens you up to helping so many incredible animals. The dogs we have fostered all had different personalities, needs and quirks. We remember them all fondly. We love fostering because it is more flexible than most people would imagine. We can decide when to take a dog (so family vacations are easy to plan), what size (under 70lbs for us) and PAN is amazing at matching us with dogs that fit our needs.
