Orion & Miai

Orion came in for his assessment this morning. He is a six-month-old, eleven-pound, Italian Greyhound. His sister Luna started attending Fort Fido back in August. Orion joined our Small Dog Program where he spent the morning investigating his new surroundings, and mingling with the other dogs. Orion did great this morning and is welcome back any time. Good job today buddy!

Yesterday's assessment was Miai. She is a one-year-old, thirty-pound, French Brittany Spaniel. Miai didn't waste any time getting into play, and quickly made friends with the other dogs in our Medium Dog Program. Miai had a great first day, and is welcome back anytime. We hope to see her again soon.

Here is a clip of Miai playing with her new best friend, Lucy.

Have a great weekend,

Kai (Jac)

Say hello to this big beauty, Kai! Can you guess how much she weighs? Would you believe me when I said this girl weighs close to two hundred pounds? Yep, that's right! Kai is four years old and weighs one hundred and eighty eight pounds of pure cuteness. Kai did great and passed her assessment with flying colors. We noticed right away that she has wonderful manners and she enjoyed meeting all her new friends.

We look forward to seeing Kai again soon
Have a good night,

  Today we had the pleasure of welcoming this handsome little guy to our Medium Dog Program. Say hello to MJ, a three month old, twenty five pound Vizsla. My heart melted when I first saw his paws pitter patter through our lobby; he's definitely one good looking pup! MJ had a wonderful first day, he mingled amongst his new play buddies and showed great "Dog Speak"

He also made a new friend named Zoey! Check them out below having a blast together...

MJ is welcome to come back whenever he wants.
Have a good night everyone, stay dry!

  This handsome old fella is an eight year old, twenty two pound Pug  named Boomer! Boomer joined our Small Dog Program like he's been doing it for years. Check him out below, exploring all around his new play area...

As you can see, he took a great liking to our tire swing, and enjoyed hanging out on our cool park bench. Boomer liked it here so much that he's already back for some boarding!

Joyful Jack

We had the pleasure of meeting Sadie's brother, Jack. Jack is an 11 month-old, 70 lbs., Labrador Retriever Mix. Jack entered the front door with his tail up, curiously looking around. Jack sniffed about all over as he explored the lobby and then made his way into our Large Dog Program. He then proceeded to meet many other dogs within our Large Dog Program and showed good sociable "dog talk" with them. As more pups came in, Jack was up and at it meeting them and mingling with the group. We are looking forward to seeing Jack soon.

Have a wonderful day,

He joined our Medium Dog Program with excitement and curiosity; his tail was wagging up a storm as he wandered and sniffed around his new play area. I could tell that he felt right at home with us.

Enjoy your weekend everyone,

  Blazer is a three year old Mix that joined us this morning bright and cheery; he came in here with his tail wagging up a storm. It was apparent pretty quickly that this guy is one big seventy pound ball of love. Blazer mingled with our Large Dog Program and then once he met Rogue, he couldn't leave her be.I think this guy found himself a new girlfriend! Check them out below.

Here they are playing together

Blazer is welcome to come back and hang out at The Fort whenever he pleases.
Have a great night everyone,

This morning we had the pleasure of meeting Pebbles. Pebbles is a 3 year-old, 13 lbs., Chihuahua & Pug mix. She has a sibling (and play friend) named Cheya whom also attends Fort Fido. Pebbles casually made her way into our Small Dog Program where she began to explore. Her explorations did not end there! She then began to meet the other pups as they arrived and had a blast with them. Pebbles was able to relax and have a great time today while making some new friends. We are looking forward to seeing both Pebbles and Cheya in the future.

Have a wonderful day,
