Save Me Saturday: April Edition

This week, on Save Me Saturday, we’ve got a whole new batch of doggos coming up, all very cute, very wise, very much in want of someone with a lap for cuddles. Is this you?

All of these beautiful, magical floofs will be available this month for you to meet, love, and be best friends with. We will be giving our patient pre-approved adopters a first go at meeting them. Any doggos who did not select their new, furver home will be available for VIP (Very Important Paws) Meet and Greets at TISOL Grandview Hwy on the National Adoption Weekend,  April 21-23.

Meet Patches. This guy wants you to know it’s totally cool if you finish all the guacamole – he’s not really allowed to have avocados anyway. Patches is a goofball with a penchant for dad jokes: why do chicken coops only have two doors? Because if they had four, they would be chicken sedans! Hey? Hey?

Patches likes long walks on beaches where there are endless seagulls and seagull poop to smell. Also likes holding hands and conversations about philosophy.

Stewie’s ear game is strong and he needs you to know that he knows how good looking he is. At 8 months old, he already knows how to manipulate people with his good looks and charm, but he only ever does it for good, like, to get an extra cookie or pat. Stewie thinks snuggles are great, cats are overrated, and his least favourite season is winter, for obvious reasons.

Milo is 4 going on 50 because he is so wise, maybe wiser than Gandalf, but don’t tell anybody he said that, he doesn’t want people to think he’s vain. Milo wants you to know it’s cool you have a cat because he also likes cats – who wouldn’t? The way they smell like magic, how they poop in indoor sandboxes, and bring everyone dead birds.

Ethan is an 8 month old male poodle terrier who likes sunshine, rainbows, and everything wonderful – like kids! Kids are great, kids are fun, he loves kids because they get what it means to run and jump and play and laugh like him. Why can everyone be like kids? Ethan prefers snuggles over seriousness, high fives over handshakes, and crunchy peanut butter over smooth. Because duh?

Happy is 1.5 years old and thinks you could use a little more fun and a lot less no-fun in your life. He is open to what that looks like, but has a few ideas: running in circles really fast, chasing a ball, rolling in the grass, and also sometimes staring intently into your eyes to convey how much he loves you. He’s open to discussion, though, on other fun, playful things you guys can get up to. Non-negotiables: ball throwing and loving you like you love cake. Also prefers females but open to a nice, mellow non-female.

Charlie is 1 in human years, 7 in dog years, and thinks that life, so far, is pretty neat. One time, he met Ellen DeGeneres on a plane and they both talked about how hard it is to be so charming on command. Charlie loves kids, is great with cats, and thinks he looks best in soft, natural lighting.

Az girl is 4 and is a Gemini who hates peas. She got pregnant at a young age and auditioned for MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. They told her she wasn’t dramatic enough. Az likes Drake, prefer Dominos over Panago, and thinks Ryan Gosling was the best thing to happen to cinema.

If any of these magical floofs have caught you eye, you should get in touch with us and we’ll do some matchmaking!

    Hi. I own my own townhouse. Looking for a small dog under 20 pounds, preferably female who likes other dogs, kids and possibly cats. My husband and I currently do not have any pets and a home is not a home without one. I am also a volunteer for C.A.R.E.S. Cat shelter with caring for the animals and some fundraising. I make cat and dog beds and toys for the shelter. I have many references from friends, family, co-workers and the staff at Brookswood Veterinary clinic. We have many kids and dogs in my Neighbour hood and looking for a new addition to our home who we can take on vacations, hiking, lakes and the park. I am missing having a pet and would love to have a small dog. Just sign me lonely in Cloverale. Cell: 778-241-9766

    I’m interested in Charlie. My husband and I have been looking for a smaller dog and he looks and sounds so sweet! Is there an application we need to fill out?

    Hello beautiful dog savers!
    We’d be so happy to meet Charlie, he seems the spitting image of our little Tommy who is 3 years old and also a rescue.

    Please keep us on your email list.

    Best regards, Manuela

    We are a family of four. My children are 13 & 15 years old. We live in a house that we own (still have mortgage). In front of us is Gaston Park which means plenty to walk around or to play catch. We are interested in adopting a small dog. Hypoallergenic is prefered if possible… Thank you! Hoping we get to meet someone that would like to stay with us.

    We are a retired couple who would love to add another special dog to our family. We have a friendly oversize sheltie who would love a buddy and playmate to romp in our backyard in Coquitlam or play on the beach from May to September at our house trailer on Vancouver Island. Would love to know more about Charlie. Are you located in Vancouver area. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Is Charlie and or Patches still available for adoption?
    I submitted my application but don’t know the next step? Do you notify me when suitable dogs are available for adoption or do I check the website and ask when I think I want to adopt a dog?
    Many thanks

  11. Melanie Iverson

    I am interested in adopting either Patches or Charlie.
    There should be an adoption form on file and I had been previously approved for adopting Cora (which I decided not to adopt). Do I need to submit another adoption form?
