Follow along on Dolly’s journey!

The newest addition to the TDIAO family has arrived in Canada! Phew!

Dolly was rescued from a shelter in California after her owners gave her up to be euthanized because she was “too fat and not active anymore”. Not only was she abused by overfeeding, but was physically abused as well, and yet this special girl is so lovely and sweet. Dolly has arrived in Vancouver and will be staying with her amazing foster family while she sheds some of those pounds. At 10 years old and 30 pounds overweight, Dolly has quite the journey ahead of her, but TDIAO will be there all the way because this girl deserves happily ever after!

To help Dolly on her journey please click here to donate. $1, $2…anything helps. Thank you for everyone’s support so far!

Feature Dog of the Week:

 Meet Gidget! This sweet girl deserves a home with an understanding and patient human she can learn to trust. Gidget’s exact age and ancestry is unknown, but she is approximately 3 years old and looks like a mixture of beagle and part Chihuahua!

She weighs about 7 Kg (15 ½ pounds). Her eyes are soulful and irresistible – she may have some hound genes!

Now in foster care, she has showed she gets along with other dogs and is completely housebroken. She walks well on a leash but is extremely shy of new situations. Her foster mom thinks she will be OK with cats. She keeps to herself and is faithful to her own bed. Her appetite is good, and she is healthy.  

We hope to find that perfect, patient person(s), probably someone with another dog, and who is home more often than not.
Gidget wants to love you but her past seems to be haunting her, so she is very shy until she knows she is safe with you.
She has no aggression
She probably would not do well with young children as their unpredictability may make her nervous
