• Bishop

    Bishop.jpgWe adopted our darling Bishop last August. He came to us a little fuzzy and minus a leg, and he warmed everyone's heart the moment they met him. He has grown up a lot since he last saw you. He is shaggy and has a sort of natural mohawk down his back. He is doing amazing. We changed his name from Digger to Bishop to go along with his brother Ripley (from the Aliens movie).

    Bishop has been a handful since the day he came to live with us: he is an attention seeker and always lets you know not to forget about him. He quickly became my baby and has remained as such. I can't go anywhere in my house without him by my side. He is quite tall and nothing but paws! He loves his big brother to bits - sometimes too much! He is excited and energetic and so loving. We are so grateful that we found him through hart. He has been a wonderful addition to our family.

  • Yogi

    Yogi.jpgHer rescuers knew from the start that she was going to have a Cinderella story, so she was named Cindy. The first order of business for this new rescue was to deal with her extremely matted coat and shaving her was the only way to offer relief from the mats that were causing hot spots and infections. When looking her worst Cindy was still able to charm the neighbors of her foster parents. They saw her beauty instantly and arranged to adopt her.

    She was renamed Yogi and now spends her time patrolling her yard with canine-sister Amy, and quite likes when the mailman brings them treats! Yogi's coat has grown back and she looks better than ever! You can tell by her expression how happy she is with her own fairy tale ending.


  • Jagger

    Jaggy.jpgJagger turned 3 on the 24th of July! He is such a good boy and our best friend. He still loves to walk, swim, camp, and cuddle! We just can't thank you enough for everything that you do for rescue animals! Your jobs are so important!

  • Maggie

    maggie.jpgMaggie is full of energy and loves to play. She instantly got along with our other dog when we adopted her two years ago. I constantly get comments about how beautiful she is. Now Mags is busy making our new foster dog feel welcome. She is so loving! What a wonderful dog. Thanks hart for rescuing her so that she could enrich our lives!

  • Emma

    emma.jpgWe didn't know much about Emma, except that she had been abandoned; had spent some time in the pound; and then tried to adopt a family who couldn't keep her before she ended up at hart. We think she is around ten or 11 years old, but she is in great shape and always up for some fun, like a run or a walk. She was shy when we first met her, but now she's quite the social butterfly and loves to meet new people and dogs. She regularly meets one of our neighbours for an early morning face-licking session. She loves to play fetch and she even tosses the ball up to us when she brings it back! She is trying to pack a lot of life into every day and is very impatient when we are getting ready to go out, by foot or by car. We are still working on some leash manners with her as she loves to just go, pulling us along with her. We are first-time dog owners and we can't imagine finding a better dog than Emma. We love her to bits!

  • Bart

    bart.jpgWe adopted Bart from hart in 2008; he was six months old and we have never looked back. Bart is a very sensitive dog and he's our little boy. Bart is very active and friendly with other dogs, although sometimes he can get over excited. We love this dog so much! Thanks, hart.

  • Matt

    matt.jpgThis is Matt! He came to hart back in July of 2011. He was one of a whole group of dogs who were surrendered at a spay and neuter clinic up north. The bunch of them were named after the characters fromGun Smoke.He is Matt Dillon! And what a fitting name it is. Although he can be a rebel who does things his way and when he wants, he is the peace keeper (or marshall) at the Dog Park. Any time a dog is picking on another or things get too rowdy, Matt comes flying in to break it up!

    Matt came into our family in September 2011 and was an instant hit! He is full of crazy energy and so much love. Matt has become an incredibly cuddly, loving dog who, as his teacher put it, is the life of the party! He is a happy-go-lucky dog who loves being the center of attention, a switch from the shy, reserved, anti-social dog we brought home. Matt loves sleeping on the bed (when no one else is in it), going for big walks and playing with whatever is around at the time. But most of all, Matt loves rolling around in the mud and bouncing through the pond at the dog park! Life doesn't get much better than that!

    He has never really grown into those giant ears, but it just makes him all the more endearing! We are so thankful to hart for all their hard work and are forever grateful to them for saving our Mattie and bringing him into our lives.

  • Shiloh

    shiloh.jpgJust wanted to stop by your page and let you, and all interested know how very thankful I am for you. You gave me the most amazing first dog. She is the perfect dog for me. My first dog, and the first dog I ever trained. She has taught me so much. We've had her for almost two months over two years. I honestly could not have asked for a better dog. She's strong-willed and she quite enjoys testing my patience and her own limits, but she's also very sensitive, so I have to be careful about my patience and temper. I used to have the shortest patience and bad temper tantrums, but after getting Shiloh, I've learned to focus on the positive, control my emotions, and focus them into what I'm doing.

    I can read Shiloh's body language better than I thought humanly possible, meaning I can become better in tune with her. In the same way, that has taught me to read other people's and animals' body language. I have moments with her where I just have to stop and think about what I need to do to get her to listen, or even look at me.

    She is so smart that she can get a trick in four reps, a tough one at that. I taught her to jump into my arms in a fifteen minute session. She is just too amazing, I can't even think of a good enough word for how amazing she is, or for how much I thank you guys at hart for giving her to me. She and I have bonded so much even in the past few months, I can't wait to see what the future holds for her and I, and what she can teach me, and what I can teach her! The picture is from our first Alberta dog agility regionals this past year... Shiloh did better than I think I've ever seen her in competition, especially considering it was very hot for her, it was in a place she'd never been, we were staying in a hotel (which she's never done), and there were distractions everywhere. I just can't thank you enough. I never can!
