ADOPTED! HTZ Houndz: Adoptable Dog of the Week – Martha


Hey HTZ Nation, it’s a holiday Monday edition of HTZ Hounds, where I introduce you to a new adoptable dog right here in the Niagara Region looking for their forever home. This week, we have Martha, a sweet but very shy lab mix from Niagara Dog Rescue. She’s 1 year old and about 35 lbs, looking for an active home.

Martha is good with most adults and dogs. She can be very timid and would do best on a home without children. As with most dogs though, once she is comfortable,Martha loves a good kiss and a cuddle. In Particular, belly rubs are her favourite. Martha would also love to have a fenced in yard to run and play in, as she is a very active dog still.

            Martha has been through a lot in her young life, and is still learning some of her manners as a dog. She has been described as 80% house trained and likes to dig. She has not been test with cats or crate trained. Things pretty standard with most younger dogs her age. A little bit of training and love, and I believe Martha will blossom into your new best friend. 

            I mean just look at that face, and those big ears, adorable. If you would like to read more about Martha, click here or fill out an application to adopt Martha Here. If you aren’t looking to adopt but are interested in how you can help Niagara Dog Rescue, considering donating your empties for contactless curbside pickup. All the money from bottle collection  goes toward feeding the dogs in NDR’s care and in medical emergencies or procedures the dogs need.

            This week, most animal shelters and kennels will begin to open in a limited capacity. Things are getting closer to normal again, which selfishly I’m hoping means I can hopefully start meeting all these wonderful foster dogs again. Thank you to all the volunteers and shelter staff around the region who have done such a great job caring for animals in need during the pandemic. Thank you vet’s and vet tech’s for being there for pet owners. And a special thank you to anyone who opened their homes to foster animals during this time. Take care everybody and remember: No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
