Happy Tails


Amy Gowertz - Thursday, November 15, 2018

I just wanted to touch base to let you know how Karl (formerly Malone) is doing.  He has settled in well and is an absolute delight to have around.  He’s still a little reserved but each day his puppy personality is slowly revealing itself.  He loves his walks and enjoys exploring every post and bush along his path.  He actually heels extremely well.  He is affectionate and loves to cuddle.  He is my shadow and sleeps on a chair behind my desk chair.  He like to stay close.

Thank you for the good work the organization does in giving dogs a chance to be re-homed.  Karl is good advertising for family and friends considering adopting a dog and for strangers we meet along our path.

Pogo and Archi

Amy Gowertz - Saturday, November 03, 2018

This is Pogo (puggle) and Archi (chi) both LMR fosters for us.  Pogo was our foster dog #21 that we adopted in July 2014.  Pogo has been a great addition to our family but as we fostered more and more dogs, he would get very very sad when the dog we were fostering got adopted.  So, in Feb 2018, Archi this little skinny undernourished Chi came into our home as a foster.  Well, we could see the two of them became instant friends and we did not have the heart to tear away another foster from Pogo so Archi became a permanent resident in our home as well.  You can say we adopted Archi for Pogo

Pogo is foster dog #21 for us and Archi is foster #74. These two are very compatible, as you can see by the photos.  We continue to foster but it is a much easier time for Pogo when the fosters leave now because he knows Archi is here to stay.  While Pogo is caring and very in tune to how everyone in the house is feeling, Archi is just a happy busy body that can entertain himself by moving the dog toys from one end of the room to the other end and then back again.  We are so happy to be fostering for Little Mutts Rescue and so grateful this brought these two angels into our lives.  They put a smile on all our faces and of most of the visitors that come into our home as well.     

Ellie Mae previously Miyoko

Amy Gowertz - Saturday, November 03, 2018
Just wanted to give you an up-date on Ellie Mae aka Miyoko. She is perfect!! She had her stitches out on Friday during her first meeting with our vet. Aside from some dental work required in the new year she is doing great. We have got her licensed with the City of Calgary and registered her micro chip. 

 This weekend we have just hung out and are getting to know each other. She has 4 beds available to her, is eating well and sleeps with me. Ahhhh We are starting to see a wee bit of her personality show through as she wants to play a little bit with some toys. Thank you so much for your hard work in finding these special four legged friends their forever homes. Ella Mae has found hers.

Logan now Charlie

Amy Gowertz - Friday, October 05, 2018
Charlie is a very special and loveable little dog who has fit into our family perfectly.  He is very cuddly and likes nothing better than to curl up beside you and go fast asleep.  He gets along with all the children and other dogs (even though he is the smallest).  He is still learning how to walk on a leash and slowly learning not to pull so much.  He gets very excited whenever I come home and spins around like a top.  He is still experiencing some anxiety whenever I leave him, but it is staring to get a bit better as time goes on.  I am so happy that I found him to become part of my family.
Keep up the good work in rescuing this loveable little animals.


Update on Diamond

Amy Gowertz - Tuesday, September 25, 2018
One photo is Diamond cuddled up on my colourful blanket, at my feet, on Canada Day.  The other photo is Diamond hogging my bed - which she is exceptionally good at doing every night.  It's taken a little while for her to realize that she's here to stay, but now she's a cuddly little girl, and is sometimes even a "Velcro" dog.  Whomever had her before she was found on the streets trained her exceptionally well.  She's got a lot of terrier in her, so she's programmed to run after cats, squirrels, etc., but I have a story to tell....We were both outside (no fence, not leashed) as I took some garbage to the townhouse complex bin.  She will not leave the yard, and just waits for me.  I was about halfway back when I saw a jackrabbit out of the corner of my eye - and Diamond saw it at the same time.  I hollered "Diamond, No. Leave it!" - and she stood still and just watched the rabbit run away!!  How's that for awesome training?  So, whomever decided not to adopt her because she was 12 years old, and left her so we could adopt her - we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, because she's an absolute treasure.

Roxanne now Sierra and June Bug now Miss Lucy

Amy Gowertz - Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Hi Everyone!
We just wanted to say that these two girls are doing great!

Sierra is 6 yrs old & tiny so she isn’t going to like the cold at all so I’ve bought her a good fleece wardrobe :) 
She is a sweet girl who runs the show with my cats & other two dogs.

Miss Lucy is 2 yrs old & is very timid. 
We took a slow casual approach with her regarding stairs ..... she figured them out in 3 days!! 
She is scared to be picked up but within a few days you could pick her up with just a little squealing. :) 
She was scared of the leash & going for a walk but is starting to enjoy them & even leads the pack.
She also has no interest in our cats but enjoys the company of me & my husband & her fur buddies.
She is starting to play with toys & enjoys belly rubs & ear scratches. 

Saving these dogs makes us feel so good!

Wesley moved right in and made himself at home.

We adopted Milo in June having gone through Little Mutts 5 years ago and adopting (Chula) who is now Piper.  Milo was originally quite timid and seemed especially skittish around men.  He has turned into a sweet, loving little guy.  He loves Piper and they play and sleep together.  Milo loves his walks and is great at the off leash park.........boy can he run!  Milo has adjusted well and he has a happy home with people who love and spoil him.  Glad I check the Little Mutts website every now and again or we would have missed him.

Since joining our family, Gus has become quite the guy! He loves to spend lots of time on our warm cozy bed but once he is up, he spends his days at the flower shop with Fergie (who is our other rescue) delivers flowers when he can, and loves to go for long walks when the days are nice. He prances along like a little prince! He is not very impressed with the snow, but he is a good sport! He loves to run full speed around the house and is happy that Fergie has become his new playmate! He is a loving little guy and although he was all white when he came to us, he is now getting some brown spots coming through giving him lots of character. We are very happy to have him in the family and know he will bring much love.

Dora the Explorer

Amy Gowertz - Monday, September 24, 2018
Little Dora is doing amazing. She is one spoiled dog. She gets to sleep with me ….. she goes on 2 to 3 long walks a day. She has quite a large vocabulary of commands. She knows the routine and is pad trained along with outdoor trained. She loves a wet food and a dry food we found she finally will gobble up. After lots of treats bought she does not like, we finally found one from Costco she can’t wait to gobble up. She loves to either sit on my knee or right beside me. She has been to the groomer 3 times in 6 months and loves to be pretty. We have had to go to the vet a couple of times because of ear infection and a bacteria that had to be treated. She is fine and doing well. She gets to fly with me and has had 4 flights in 6 months. She loves the attention she gets in the airport and on the plane. She gets to sit on my knee as she is an emotional support animal. We picked each other. She loves children and especially my grandchildren. She is the perfect watch dog and will let me know when someone is at the door. Dora can swim and loved it in Winnipeg on the beaches. She makes she I get to bed at a reasonable hour or she will let me know its time to come to bed. She is perfect in every way.
