Mauka & Zeus

Yesterday, we met Mauka. She is an energetic, 1 year old, 40 pound, Bernedoodle (Bernese Mountain Dog/Poodle). She joined the medium pack, and quickly made friends with the other dogs. As you can see in this clip, her favorite was Nellie (Old English Sheepdog).

This morning we welcomed Zeus to the Fort. He is a 4 year old, 27 pound,  French Bulldog. Like Mauka, he also joined the medium pack. He a had great first day, and enjoyed playing with the other dogs. Below is a clip of Zeus playing with Max (German Short Haired Pointer) and Becket (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever).

Beautiful Becket & Missie

This morning we had the wonderful pleasure of welcoming Becket and Missie into Fort Fido.
Becket is a 50 pound, 1 year old, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (very pretty and soft brown and white fur). She came into Fort Fido calm and eager as if she knew that The Fort is a place to relax and have fun at. Becket socialized with the pack in medium roll and definitely made a lot of friends today.
Missie is a 23 pound, 2 year old, labradoodle (adorable!). Missie entered The Fort confident and ready for the day. She got to mingle about with the pack in small roll. Missie is figuring out that Fort Fido is a place to make new friends and enjoy.
Both Becket and Missie did well for their first time here and we look forward to seeing them return for more fun.

Enjoy the break from the heat,

Spectacular Sydney

Sydney confidently came in for her assessment today. She is a 25-pound, 4-month old, Golden Retriever. As soon as Sydney came into Fort Fido she was ready to investigate the building. It's almost as if Sydney knew that The Fort is a place to enjoy and interact with pups at. As soon as she entered the medium roll she began to mingle about with the other dogs. After taking some time to get to know the other pups within medium roll, Sydney began to play with Shiva. Check out the cute video below! Sydney showed great socialization and playfulness, we hope to have her return soon for even more fun.

Enjoy your day,

Fort Fido and the West Pierce Fire Department Collaborate to Help Local Animals in Distress

Yesterday, Fort Fido received a call from the West Pierce Fire Department. Apparently they responded to a call where a lady walking her two small dogs had fallen and received a head injury. Fort Fido has been taking care of dogs in the University Place area for close to a decade. Since the lady was non responsive, and the dogs were obviously upset, the quick thinking firemen new just who to call. We were happy to take the frightened dogs off their hands until the owners daughter could be contacted. 

Below is a picture of Tiny and Daisey grateful to be back in the arms of their family.


Have a great weekend,

- Zesty Zeus -

We welcomed Zeus into Fort Fido this morning. Zeus is a handsome 6-month-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. He was excited to enter The Fort for his assessment today.

Yesterday morning we assessed a dog named Hoda. Hoda is a 48-pound, 8-month-old, Old English Bulldog & French mix. She came in beaming and ready to explore Fort Fido.

Hoda began to play with Cooper, Maggie, and Petey (Take a peek below!) after learning that The Fort is a safe place to play and have fun. Hoda definitely enjoyed her time here today and we look forward to seeing her return for some more fun.
