The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Sometimes this effort extends even further, since there are so many dogs that find themselves in dire circumstances. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
Loyal Rescue would like to introduce Joey, an adorable Maltese currently in a foster home in Peterborough, Ontario.
Joey is 10 years old but has plenty of life left in him. At just 5.5 pounds, this adorable little guy found himself homeless when his family decided they did not want him or his brother Mickey (also available for adoption) any more. He loves attention and really needs a new family to love him.
According to his foster mom, Joey and his brother were not well cared for in their previous home. Both were quite thin when surrendered and hadn’t seen a vet for some time. Joey was suffering with a severe mouth infection and has had to have all of his teeth removed. However, he has adjusted well and has no problem eating.
Joey needs a home where he can be the top dog for a while and preferably one without small children. He likes to nap and is frightened by sudden movements. Joey also loves to go for short walks to explore and run in the grass.
Although he does not like being groomed, he has done well with a professional groomer. He gets along with other dogs and cats as well. He is housetrained but should not be left home alone for extended periods.

Did You Know?
A landlord can refuse to rent to a person if they have a pet if he or she has a “no pets” policy. However, the Residential Tenancies Act states that any clause in a lease that prohibits pets is void. This means that once a person becomes a tenant, if they have a pet even though the lease says pets are not allowed, the landlord cannot evict the tenant just for having the pet. But… the landlord can apply to the board to evict a tenant if the pet is causing a problem. For more details, go HERE.
