Daisy & Ruxin

Yesterday morning we had Daisy come in for her assessment. Daisy is a 7 year-old, 9.5 pound, Shih-Tzu. After entering the front door and sniffing about in the lobby shortly, Daisy made her way up into the small roll. I noticed that after some other pups entered, she was relaxing more. Daisy socialized about yesterday and we hope to see her return soon.
Ruxin investigated Fort Fido today upon his arrival. He is an 8 month-old, 45 pound, Australian Shepard Mix. He was not quite sure, being his first day and all, where he was or what to do. Ruxin soon learned that he could mingling about and socializing was the name of the game here at The Fort. Ruxin will be boarding with us this weekend and he's sure to have a fantastic time.

Enjoy the rest of your day,

Adorable Abby

Abby joined Fort Fido this morning. She is a 5 1/2 month-old, 40-pound, Labrador Retriever. I saw her tail wagging as she entered the front door and it continued to do so thought the day. I had her enter into the medium roll today and she was fluent in dog-speak. She socialized and had a great time with the pack making a lot of friends. We caught a clip of Abby playing about with Georgie (take a peek below!). Abby is welcome to attend Fort Fido anytime for some more fun times.

Lucy & Sherman

Yesterday morning I had the privilege of meeting Lucy. Lucy is a 2 year-old 50-pound Australian Shepherd Mix. I noticed that she had a young and playful aura about her so we had her start out in the medium roll where she played around and socialized with the rest of the pack. Take a peek at the video we caught of Lucy, Walter, and Petey.

Sherman entered The Fort for his assessment today. Sherman is a 10 month-old, 75-pound, labradoodle. He was cautious as he first entered the large roll but I noticed that as more dogs came he began to socialize and relax. After a few more dogs entered, Sherman began to play with Brix and let loose his inner fun as part of the pack. Watch the clip below. =)

Stay warm,

Can you guess whose back this is?
No, it's not Louis. Nor is it Stella. That's right, it's Bella!

Don't worry, I have got some awesome pictures taken by the whole crew for your viewing pleasure today.
This time it is the Gatsby
It is hard to say no to Hopper's face!
This Pancake is one that you would snuggle up with :)
Miguel is having a blast with this huge ball
The Jaeger commands thee to pet!
Emmy and Seamus are busy with a tug-of-war game (who will win?)
We will end off with a beautiful dachshund (I may be biased since I own one lol) looking into your heart.

Hope you enjoyed the photos!

Ramses, Sassy & Sammy

Yesterday, we met Ramses. He is a 1 year old, 60 pound, red brindle, Pit Bull/Boxer Mix. Ramses had a great first day here at the Fort. He joined our large pack, where he quickly made new friends. His favorite was Zoe the Boxer. We look forward to seeing Ramses again soon.

This morning we assessed Sammy & Sassy, two Dachshunds from the same family. Sammy is a 7 year old, red, dachshund. Sassy is a 7 year old, brown, long-haired Dachshund. They both joined the small pack, where they enjoyed mingling with the other dogs. They both did a great job today, and are welcome back anytime.


Have a great weekend,

Leroy & Bruno

Today we met Leroy, a 1.5 yr old 70-pound lab. Leroy came into Fort Fido curious with his nose working 'round the clock. I noticed as he began to socialize with the other dogs that he was making friends and got too excited a couple of times. The rest of the pack helped to calm him down throughout his time here and he made some lasting connections today.

Yesterday we welcomed Bruno. Bruno is an 8 year-old, 5-pound chihuahua. He slowly entered into the small roll curious and met the other pack members. I saw that Bruno mingled about taking his time meeting the other pups. He seemed content after snuggling up next to his new doggie friends. I think that Bruno would enjoy some more socialization.

We look forward to having Leroy and Bruno return.

Have a nice afternoon,

Adorable Adeline

Take a peek at this cute Miniature Australian Shepard! Adeline is only 4 months old and about 11 pounds (such an adorable puppy!). She entered Fort Fido with confidence and was ready to make friends. As soon as others began to enter into the medium roll she began to play with them. She had a lot of fun on her first day at The Fort and I look forward to seeing little Adeline return for more fun!

Enjoy your day,

Majestic Jac

Today we welcomed Jac. Jac is a 12-pound 5 month-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy (not to be mixed with the Cardigan Welsh Corgi which has a tail). He came in excited as to what was going to happen as we took him into The Fort. After he entered the medium roll, he began socializing and having lots of fun. Jac was able to relax during nap time. We were able to catch a couple of videos of Jac with Shiva and Augie among others. Check 'em out!

We look forward to having Jac return for some more fun times!
Have a nice evening,
