ozzie and his ball
Gaia says yes.
Here is crazy puppy Ozzy. We're are learning more and more about him over the weekend. All in all he's a crazy little puppy who needs to learn manners. He great with the other dogs, just needs to learn doggie manners and take cues for the older ones when its time to He does have some food issues when in proximity to other dogs which we've started to work on right away. He's also taking his job of guarding the house very seriously. He does not like new people coming to the gate or in the front door.,he means business. Again something that we started to work on immediately. With some time and patience we have no doubt Ozzy will rise to the challanges , and become an amazing boy Here is crazy Ozzy playing with his toys

Absolutely the best rescue service out there. Debbie and Dawn are so passionate about what they do. If you have a question they are always there to either give you advice or Just listen to any probl...ems you may have. We adopted a troubled dog and it was a difficult transition and we still have our issues but Debbie has been there every step of the way and we are so grateful. 15 out of 5 rating. If you are considering getting a chow or shar-pei I highly recommend merlins hope. If they do not have a dog that's right for you right away, just wait and eventually they will. See More

Positive, positive, positive! Today Dawn brought Luna a Shar-Pei, over to visit my grandmother. She has been so low and down lately and this visit really changed her mood and attitude. She is already ...looking forward to the next visit. I strongly recommend donating to this charity and having them visit seniors who love dogs. It makes such a big difference! �� Thank you Dawn!!

We’ve received lovely applicationS for Lucy. Her profile will be marked Adoption Pending while take time to process what we have. We’ll keep you posted.

Image may contain: dog

Lucy is a stunning young 2 1/2 year old spayed female weighing approximately 52lbs. Her silky long black coat turns heads everywhere she goes. This spunky girl comes with lots of energy to play and run. She knows her basic obedience like sit, stay, down and of course, shake paw. She takes treats gently and will happily learn new commands. Like most females she’s incredibly smart and catches on quickly. Lucy’s been described as a confident girl so her handler should be t...he same. She picks and chooses which canine company she’ll keep but so far hasn’t met too many people she didn’t like. Partly because she love all the attention. Her leash manners are okay but will improve with a tiny bit of work. Lucy’s looking for a home without cats or or other dogs. She’s a good girl who requires a cool place to sleep, a place to run when she gets the zoomies, and a hug when you get home. Cuddles time is short and sweet, but home time hug is a must. If you are looking for a jogging partner or walking companion, please consider this happy silly girl. Lucy will love the exercise and although she meets people well... she also knows how to keep them safe.
She is currently located in Orangeville Ontario.

Bubba is a 41 pound black 10 year old neutered blind and slightly hearing impaired male shar pei.... he's got alot of grey, some hair-loss and a few skin tags If you're still reading his bio, wow, thank-you.

Bubba's owners dumped him off at a shelter in the U.S. where he had little chance of a future. According to the shelter's volunteers, he's too sweet and gentle to be euthanize. Bubba is exactly that, a soft cuddly goofy boy who doesn't realized he's different. He's ...not the brightest when it comes to sit or stay, but he is a great listener and petting him while you chat makes the conversation that much more enjoyable. Bubba gets along famously with other dogs and people. He's house trained and figures out the lay of a room relatively quickly. This healthy boy has no other major medical issues and acts like a spry happy fellow. He's looking for a special home where he will be included in conversations, maybe have a buddy to curl up next to or at least squish in with his people or person. Like any dog, he just wants to be loved and be part of a family. He's extra specially awesome...because blind dogs are awesome

Bubba went for his first vet appointment yesterday. He was checked out from nose to tail and all the results came back great. Besides being blind and 10 years he's a healthy little boy weighing in at 41 lbs. He has some broken teeth, but nothing that needs treatment as he is in no pain..he a little stiff at times due to his age..he only needs a few medicated baths and a change in diet to clear up his coat...
Thank you to Dr. Skoulikas for taking such good care of him yesterday
Bubba an amazing little boy with a marvelous temperment and has so much love to give.
He is available for adoption
