March 26, 2017 – Plum is gone to her forever home.

March 14, 2017 – Plum is a very sweet little girl.  She’s 21lbs and she loves to go for walks.  Plum is housetrained and will ask to go outside when she needs it.  Please come and meet Plum on Saturday March 18, 2017 at WAG Pet Café & Lounge on Bank Street in Ottawa from 11AM to 3PM.  Plum gets along well with other dogs.

March 6, 2017 – What a change with this pretty girl since her bladder stone was removed.  With every day that passes she is improving and can hold herself, for a few hours, prior to going out to urinate.  Plum is housetrained and will let you know when she has to go out by going to the door and whining.  Her foster parents have her on a schedule whereas she goes out every couple of hours in order to avoid any accidents in the house.  As time goes on she will be able to hold herself longer and longer.  Plum walks well on a leash and enjoys going for walks.  She will be the perfect walking companion for someone who enjoys daily walks.  She has no interest in toys, just you.   Now that she is feeling much better, she is a very happy and playful gal as confirmed by her wagging tail. She loves attention and will sit next to you encouraging you to pet her and maybe give her a belly rub.  She gets along with most dogs but wants to be the queen bee of the house. She would be happy as the only pet or in a home where there is a submissive or passive dog.  Plum is scheduled to have dental surgery on Tuesday,  March 7.  Once this procedure is done she will be able to enjoy eating.  At this time she is picky about what she eats.  Plum is not a fan of wet food or soft kibble.  We have been encouraging her to eat by pouring beef broth of her kibble.  When giving her anything by hand, place in the palm of your hand to give it to her.  Due to her excitement she will accidently nip you when getting food from your fingers. Because of this behaviour, a home with kids over 8 is recommended. Should you wish to adopt this precious girl, make room in your bed, as she will lay next to you all night long.

February 28, 2017 – Plum came in last week.  She is a pug X.  The vet said she would probably be around 8 years old.  She was found stray in the Kingston region.  Plus came to UMWPR with a HUGE bladder stone that was removed on Thursday February 23;  she was also spayed on that day and had her hind legs dew claws removed at the same time.  Plum is a very sweet girl who gets along very well with other dogs.  Plum will need to have her teeth cleaned and many extractions when she goes for her dental procedure in a few weeks.  Stay tuned for more o this sweet girl and come and meet her at Pet Valu – Westgate Mall in Ottawa this Saturday March 4 from 11 to 3pm.
