A Female Tibetan Spaniel-x presently Adopted
Update - May 6: Muffy is going to her new home today. For some dogs finding the right match takes a little longer; Muffy has been with Animatch since August 2018. Our sincere thanks to Virginie Forest and Alain Bonneau of FIC (Ecole de Formation des Intervenants canins du Quebec) for all their help.
Update – January: Muffy disappeared for a short time from our website; she was adopted and returned because she did not get along with the resident dog. Muffy would prefer to be your one and only. Since Muffy is the type of dog who LOVES to work, *FIC opened their arms to her and she is already showing them how eager she is to learn. Virginie Forest and Alain Bonneau confirm that she is an attentive student who will be an awesome family member. Muffy’s ideal family would be one that understands that many dogs need to have diversion and exercise. The size of your house or yard is far less important to dogs than what happens in it. Muffy needs to feel as though she is working her mind and body; in other words, couch potatoes are not a good match. Animatch, with the help of FIC, promises to get it right for this amazing dog. Please fill in the Adoption Form if you would like to adopt Muffy.

Update: November is here and Muffy is still in search of her forever home. She may look like a little cuddle bug but she is much more the rough-and-tumble type. Being from the North, she’s had a lot of practice at chasing/hunting small animals. Her ideal home would be one with a large fenced yard to keep her safe. Muffy won’t be ready for off-leash adventures until she has done obedience training and mastered the all-important command, “COME”. She loves being outdoors and can walk (or maybe pull) for miles; again, obedience training could solve this problem. She is okay with dogs when properly introduced but she would benefit from being an only dog. With lots of exercise and opportunities to run and chase in a safe area, Muffy may even tire herself out and become a cuddler. Her ideal home would be with people who love the outdoors and going for long walks and hikes. Are you ready to share some adventures with Muffy? Please fill in the Adoption Form if you feel that Muffy is meant to be part of your family.
Muffy is one happy dog who seems to be grateful for her second chance at a forever home. At 2.5 years old, she recently made the long trip from the North thanks to the Northern Paws Project. She is a Tibetan Spaniel mix whose sweet and gentle personality will win your heart. Muffy is curious and enthusiastic about everything that is going on around her. Her favorite pastime is going for long walks and she is quickly learning how to walk properly on leash. If you would consider doing obedience training with her, she will proof to be a focused little dog who loves to learn. Muffy may just be the star pupil in her class. She recently had surgery to correct a condition called cherry eye. Muffy is okay with other dogs after a proper introduction but would really prefer to be your one and only. Muffy does shed and will need regular brushing to keep her from becoming a matted mess; she is not the type of dog who should be shaved. If you can envision Muffy in your future, please fill in the Adoption Form.
