Lilly

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting Lilly. She is a nine-year-old, thirteen-pound, Maltese mix. Lilly enjoyed hanging out with the other dogs in our Small Dog Program. She did a great job, and is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing Lilly again very soon!

Have a great weekend,

Marley & Sally


Marley is one of the dogs that assessed with us this morning and I must say, this two year old, English Bulldog, is one goofy girl! Marley immediately started mingling among her new friends the moment she arrived and showed great Dog Speak! We were able to capture her on video doing just that; check it out below! 




Marley wasn't the only one checking us out for the first time today; say hello to her sister, Sally. She's a three year old Pug!
Sally had a marvelous time being a dog and doing dog things with her own kind today. We even got her in action! 


Marley and Sally plan on boarding with us this weekend; I'll be looking forward to seeing them again. 

Have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday,
Shaunte'

Berry Bramble

Bramble (not the British blackberry bush) joined us for his assessment today. Bramble is a 3 year-old, 11 lbs., Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He entered Fort Fido as ready as can be and made his way into The Fort. Once there, Bramble up and into our Small Dog Program where he stayed throughout his assessment. Bramble was able to meet many other pups today as they came in throughout the morning and was able to mingle with them. We are looking forward to seeing Bramble more.

Have a wonderful day,

Kashi & Anni

This morning we had the pleasure of meeting Kashi. He is a ten-month-old, forty-seven-pound, Lab/Border Collie mix. He joined our Medium Dog Program where he enjoyed mingling with the other dogs. As he became more comfortable here, he started playing with Neo a three-month-old Husky puppy. Kashi is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon. 


Anni came in for her assessment this morning as well. She is a three-year-old, fifty-five-pound, Husky x Akita x Border Collie mix. Anni "spoke" very good dog and made lots of new friends in our Large Dog Program. We hope to see her again soon. Good job today, Anni.

Here is a clip of Anni playing with Diego the Golden Retriever.




Have a great weekend,

Lilo & Sadie


Yesterday we welcomed this little cutie into our Small Dog Program. She's a five month old, seven pound  Maltipoo with a whole lot of cuteness to pass around! Lilo had a lot of fun exploring her new hang out area. She curiously went around, sniffing all the fun toys we have up there for them! It was adorable to watch.


 Sadie was today's assessment. She's a one year old Mix that weighs fifty pounds. Sadie started off with a rough life; she was found behind a car dealership and was so under-malnourished that she looked incredibly old.

It wasn't until after she was rescued and cleaned up, that they realized how young she is! 

I'd say this girl is one lucky pup! Starting off on the streets and now has an amazing home with owners who care for her, and want to get her socialized! 

Sadie passed her assessment with flying colors and even made some new friends: Scandi and Abby.

Both Lilo and Sadie are welcome to return for more daycare fun whenever they please!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday,
