International Pets Looking For Homes

CRITTER CHATTER: Pets with international roots looking for homes in Toronto. This Dutch rabbit named Yoshi is looking for a new home.

This month we introduce Charlie, a handsome cocker spaniel who is looking for love and understanding, and Yoshi, a little rabbit who has a gentle nature.
Charlie is a three-year-old neutered male English Cocker Spaniel who is described as a loving, playful and obedient boy.
He enjoys going for walks, but does get excited and will pull on the leash so he will need some positive training work in that area. However, he's extremely food and treat motivated, which can be incorporated with his training.
Typical of the spaniel breed, his ears, eyes and skin will need to be cared for and maintained.
He enjoys the company of other dogs and has a number of canine buddies in his current foster home.
Charlie would benefit from an experienced adult-only home as he has a tendency to guard his treasured possessions. He is house trained, fully vetted and looking for his forever home through Project Pet Rescue.

Yoshi is a three-year-old spayed female Dutch rabbit who is good natured and loves to explore.
As with all pet rabbits, you will need to bunny-proof her roaming area to ensure she can't injure herself or cause damage via chewing.
Rabbits are intelligent, social animals who can become delightful companion animals if given a chance to interact with their human families. A great resource site for rabbit care is
