Sometimes TAS gets a stray dog and has no idea about its history. Sometimes they get more of the story. Princess, an eleven year old Shih Tzu was brought into Dundas West Animal Hospital by a kindly stranger after she was hit by a car. The clinic checked her out (some scrapes and bruises), made sure she was okay, boarded her and then put her profile up on their Facebook page to see if anyone knew where she came from. Her owner showed up and decided not to take her back. DWAH announces on Facebook they are handing her over to TAS. Usual uninformed negative comments pop up about how TAS will automatically euthanize her, blah, blah, blah. Meanwhile, TAS arranges with DWAH to have her spayed and her teeth cleaned. And now she’s up for adoption. Thanks much to everyone at Dundas West Animal Hospital for keeping an eye on her.
What have I got to add? The best underbite ever.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
