Welcome to The Nova Scotia Pet Project.     If you do not live in beautiful Nova Scotia, you might still might enjoy your visit here.     Please remember that this site does not list every rescue or shelter in this province.     How did I decide who to list?    That answer is pretty darned simple.    When a family member or a friend or a neighbour asks me for recommendations, these are the ones I suggest.

Nova Scotia is extremely lucky to have the The Nova Scotia Lost Dog Network.     It is based on the simple concept that sharing on social media really can help lost dogs find their way back home.      Since its inception, people all around the province have helped hundreds of lost dogs find their way back home simply by clicking their mice and sharing on Facebook.

Why is that so wonderful?    Besides all the Happy Endings?    Every lost dog that finds his or her way back home is one less “stray” dog that will need a shelter or rescue slot!

“If only we can overcome cruelty, to human and animal, with love and compassion we shall stand at the threshold of a new era in human moral and spiritual evolution – and realize, at last, our most unique quality: humanity.” ~ Jane Goodall

Dolly

Dolly is a mid sized, adult terrier mix who is available for adoption from Misfit Manor Dog Rescue Society.    For more information about adopting this lovely miss, PLEASE CLICK HERE

Dolly is a sweet 1 year old terrier mix that came all the way to Canada from Greece in March 2018. She was rescued from the streets and brought to a loving family. Dolly became a misfit after there was a serious illness in her new family and moved into her foster home in September.

When Dolly was first brought to her foster family she was taken to the vet to get checked out. We’ve discovered that she’s allergic to some meat proteins, which showed in the form of yeast in one ear and toes. This is easily managed with cleaning her ears and feeding her the Rayne kangaroo diet which can be found at the vet or pet food stores.

Dolly is a fantastic, smart, loving little girl who loves to play, snuggle and give kisses after you come back from being away. She is shy at first but connects to her people quickly and hard. We’ve been told that she has separation anxiety in the form of chewing. She has only chewed paper towel and gotten into accessible garbage twice but hasn’t damaged anything when left alone for a few hours. We have been told that she has chewed her kennel when left alone in it.

Dolly is very spunky and has energy to burn but can also relax beside you when you want to rest. She would make a great hiking/running partner! Her foster family is told that she’s a runner but this hasn’t been seen as Dolly is very attached to her people and doesn’t seem to want to leave their side. However, because she has been known in her previous home to run and is able to jump high, we don’t recommend letting this little girl off leash unless she’s in a closed in space.

Dolly seems her happiest and most confident when playing with her fur siblings and would probably excel at doggy daycare! She does play rough and might not be a good fit for a family with an older/smaller dog that doesn’t enjoy rougher play. A few times she has growled at her little fur sibling when she crawls out of bed at night but has not bitten anyone.

She’s been around young kids and hasn’t minded them patting her but like any dog that has lived on the streets she might be unpredictable. She also has some food aggression from having to fight for her food but she has only ever growled at her fur siblings twice and this is simply fixed by feeding them in separate areas. She hasn’t ever reacted to her foster parents when handling food and is extremely gentle at taking treats.

Dolly will make an amazing addition to the perfect family! Could that family be yours?
