Hi everyone! My name is Twinkle and I’m 1.5 years old. With a name like Twinkle, you’ve probably surmised that I’m a female…although you can’t take that to the bank as I’ve seen some pretty strange gender names (a boy named ‘Sue’ is one of them). I have been staying with my guru teacher who is showing me the ropes. I used to guard my prized toy possessions; however, my wonderful teacher has taught me ‘drop it’ so that issue has been resolved. I also needed some leash training but a ‘gentle leader’ fixed me up pretty well. I also loved counter-surfing and I’ve been told that is a no-no. Drats ~ I really liked that activity! I absolutely love people but I can be grumpy with other dogs so GR is suggesting I go to a home with no other dogs or cats. I have lots of energy so if you’re an active family, I might just be the girl for you. I love being cuddled and made a fuss over but my back end and paws are sensitive so best pet me around all the other areas. So, for several reasons, including this one, it’s best for me not to live with children. I am not afraid of loud noises and you can leave me alone if you have to out without me. The doc says I’m healthy, except I can be prone to skin and ear infections from time to time. Here’s what my fabulous foster/teacher says about me: “Twinkle is an energetic girl, full of joy with a pure love of people and life. It is important that a new family continues to reinforce her training as she has done so well that we can’t let this slip.” Yup…I have been taught so much lately and humans seem to love the ‘new me’ so I sure want these new habits of mine to persist so people will love me, which is my absolute favourite thing. So, to finish in a very cheesy way: Twinkle, twinkle little star! ‘Twinkle’ that’s me but I’m also a ‘star’!

Twinkle is currently being fostered in the Newmarket, ON area.  If you would like more information about Twinkle please call our hot-line toll-free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
