Adoption Monday: Carlie, GSD & Rottweiler Mix, Bowmanville, ON

Carlie is a tiny girl who was lucky to be found and saved from a dangerous situation. She was quickly whisked into rescue and placed in a wonderful loving foster home where she has begun to blossom.

Carlie is a very smart, happy, delightful puppy who is highly food-motivated, learns new things quickly and is eager and happy to learn.

Her house training is coming along very well. Carlie is a very smart girl who will often go to the door and bark to be taken out.

Carlie is still very young and will need someone that is home part of the day and at night who is fully committed to helping her continue with her house training until she masters it completely which could take another 3 or 4 months. She is crate trained and goes willingly into her crate.

If foster mum goes out during the day Carlie is taken out for a pee then goes into her crate with her kong filled with kibble and chew toys to keep her occupied. At night she sleeps on her bed in her crate and must be covered with her blanket.

Being a typical puppy, Carlie is indeed a chewer who loves her stuffies and appropriate chew toys or she tends to get into puppy mischief such as chewing on shoes or furniture legs.

Carlie currently shares her foster home with a foster brother dog and a cat. She really loves to play with her foster brother Casey but can get a little pushy with the cat so she will need to be trained to be gentle if there is a cat in her future adoptive home.

Carlie will require a completely fenced in backyard. Being a puppy, she will need to be supervised when outside in the yard as she can run like the wind and does bolt quickly. Because she is at that very nippy puppy stage that can take months to outgrow, she needs a home with children at least 8 years old and up who are well used to dogs.

Adopting a puppy is indeed a lot of work and requires huge amounts of love, patience, time and a 150 % commitment that will ensure you will get back everything and more that you put into them.


ANML-RESQ is a dedicated group of volunteers looking out for the 4-legged creatures we share this world with. Their goal is to save a dog or cat from being euthanized in a shelter, through no fault of their own - just in the wrong place at the wrong time. If they don't have a foster home available they will work with other reputable organizations to find a place.

ANML-RESQ relies solely on donations and fundraisers to spay/neuter, vaccinate and microchip their pets prior to adoption.  They don't even use funds for gas to transport the pets in their program to their new homes!
