Hi! My name is
I have an Adoption Application Pending!
Collie, Smooth/Retriever, Labrador/Mix
Date of Birth
December 21, 2020
Heineken was found in a rural area in Northern Alberta when he was three weeks old. Heineken tested positive for Parvovirus when we was 10 weeks old and was quarantined and treated while in foster. Heineken proved to be a strong and resilient boy early on and recovered from the virus very quickly. It is speculated that he came into contact with the virus from “tasting” things that other animals have left behind.
He is much better than he was initially, however, it is a requirement that his droppings be picked up immediately to ensure he does not go back to his old ways and that on walks he is told to “leave it” when smelling droppings left by other animals. Other than that, Heineken has impressive intelligence, and is extremely affectionate. He knows four tricks already! His favorite activities are chasing after his ball in the park and playing with other dogs.
Following his quarantine and treatment for Parvo, Heineken has been socialized around babies (he loves to play gently with them – it will melt your heart!), small children, adults and many different sizes of dogs. Heineken has a curious nose so it is unknown whether this will get him into trouble with cats – it is recommended that they be introduced properly first!
Another thing to note, Heineken is 4 months old and is already 50 lbs! He is going to be a BIG BIG boy! He gets over-excited when visitors arrive, so the option to remove him and put him outside in a yard is highly recommended – he loves sun-tanning! He is not mouthy, but unaware of his size. He is working on learning to not jump up on people. He looks like a full size dog already (and feels like one!) but he is still just a baby.
Heineken will make you fall in love! He is a goofy boy and a true lap dog!
