ADOPTED! HTZ Houndz: Adoptable Dog of the Week - White Sox


Hey HTZ listeners, it’s Jonathon, hope everyone is holding up well during these strange times. I feel very lucky to have my dog around these days. We keep each other entertained even while our household is practicing safe social distancing. Honestly, I think he’s enjoying this whole pandemic situation because I get to work from home and be with him all the time. With that said, I can’t help but think of all the dogs with no home to call their own, like White Sox.

Sox, we’ll call her for short, is also just that, short. The rumours you’ve heard are true, great things come in small packages, and Sox is no different. At not even 30 pounds, Sox, the shepherd cross, loves to show off her unique white sock marks on her paws, while out on a good walk. This young girl also loves to play, and would love to go to a home that already has a bigger dog she can play with and learn from.

White Sox isn’t the most confident girl but she’s coming out of her shell slowly. During my time with her, White Sox listened to commands and walked fairly well at my side. She was apprehensive when I was first introduced to her but by the end of the walk, I had her eating out of the palm of my hand. Literally, the girl loves a cookie.

White Sox could do well in both, an apartment, or a house. As long as she gets her exercise in, she’s happy. Oh and there can’t be any cats, she loves to chase smaller animals. If you’d like to learn more about this young girl, read her profile here

Or if you are like many of us, finding yourself at home a lot lately, maybe consider fostering White Sox, or any of the dogs at Niagara Dog Rescue. The dogs get amazing care at Martindale Kennels and Grooming, but with Covid-19, the dogs are spending more time alone in their runs rather than actually interacting with humans, learning to be the best dogs than can be. So if you can give a dog comfy place to stay while they look for their forever home, click here to sign up to become a foster today. 

I think Niagara Dog Rescue’s slogan has taken on a new meaning in light of covid-19 so I’ll repeat it here… “No one can do everything, but everyone can do something”. Take care everybody.
