Tina here, and I’m so happy to say hello!
It’s me, Tina, I’m so happy to meet you! I am a sweet, fun girl ready to make your day a little brighter.
I love, love, love my people and will follow them around wherever they go. I like to be with them all day, but can tolerate a few hours of separation every now and again. I do like my crate and sleep in it overnight.
I am house-trained, but may have accidents if I don’t get outside often enough. I am not destructive at all, but I also don’t really get into toys very much. I really just want human interaction and attention. While I don’t really like water, especially for baths, a trusted human can touch me anywhere, for pets and grooming, and that’s fine by me. The more touching, the better. I haven’t been around the small humans very much, but have been mostly good around the ones that I have met, I just tend to jump up a lot (I’m just trying to get the best view), so a family with older people would suit me best.
I mostly like other dogs, but I sometimes take a little while to warm up to new friends. I certainly always want to smell every dog that walks by, but I’m not always sure about them returning the favour. I am working on my commands, such as “sit” and “stay”. I walk well on my leash, unless there’s a really good smell or a new dog to check out, then I may pull a little to get closer.
If you’re looking for a companion to hang out with you all day and snuggle you when it’s time to chill, then I’m definitely your gal. If you’d like to continue growing together with me, I think we’d make a great team!
Medical Note: Tina was given Pro Heart 12 on March 20, 2023 (this medication protects against heartworm disease for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick prevention until February 2024. She is currently receiving Nexguard monthly. For March 2024, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing preventative treatment.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR cannot adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
