How to Introduce dogs

Below is a video from the OSPCA about how to introduce your dog to another dog. At Home at Last Dog Rescue we use this procedure when introducing foster dogs to a resident dog. Please note that the time taken walking the dogs along parallel tracks should be done for a longer period of time then demonstrated in the video which was shorten for time constraint purposes.

Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love,
they depart to teach us about loss.
A new dog never replaces an old one;
it merely expands the heart.
If you have loved many dogs you have a very big heart………...

If you have found a friendly dog who appears to be homeless and prefer not to take them to a shelter, you must take reasonable steps to try and locate the owner before Home at Last Dog Rescue can assist:

  • Check for tattoos
  • Take the dog to a vet to see if a microchip exists
  • Contact the SPCA or your local animal shelter to file a report.
  • Post flyers where you found the dog
  • Post an ad through online classified sites (Kijiji, Craigslist, etc.)




If you are unable to keep the dog for the ten day period while waiting to find the owner, Home At Last Dog Rescue may be able to help by providing a temporary home. Please contact us and send as much information as possible, along with a photo of the dog.
