About Me

Meet Taka!

This girl is as sweet as pie!

She loves affection, she runs like the wind and enjoys cuddling up to you.  Taka thinks fetching is a foolish waste of time and would rather have a stuffed Kong.  She has a medium energy level – she loves to get her zoomies out around the yard and she is happy.  She will require a fenced-in yard as she likes to see if there are any holes – she is a flight risk at this point.

She loves going on car rides and we have been working on her manners in the car as she can get excited.  Taka is easy to load in and out of the vehicle, and is a quick study and thus would do well with obedience.  Obedience would be a must for this lady, it will help her to refocus her nervousness.

Taka does need a family that will show her that the world isn’t such a scary place.  She does warm up to new situations but needs to get some more exposure to the bigger world.  Taka would benefit from basic clicker training to help to redirect her fears.

The ideal family for Taka would be a home that she can be the only pet and any children should be older in order to help with her training.  This will allow the family to focus on getting her comfortable with life…and she deserves to be the centre of attention after her long journey to find her forever home.

This girl came to us from a remote Northern Ontario community, thanks to our partner Northern Reach Rescue Network.  In the North, there isn’t access to spay-neuter or vet services and they are overwhelmed with overpopulation challenges and food insecurities.  We would like to thank Northern Reach Rescue Network for all of its efforts to support the remote communities and move animals south for adoption, provide food, and medical services.
