Flying Dogs Canada
Many dogs have found loving forever homes through FDC. See some of our success stories and testimonials below!
Remember Solito? He is now Leo and here he is in his most recent “family photograph” in Edmonton, Alberta. He is an FDC success story from 2017.
He was the second FDC dog and he was picked up emaciated and in terrible condition and his owners were sought out and they agreed to surrender him to FDC. His life has now been completely transformed by Tanisha Foisie and family. He will never have to be hungry again.
Lily has found her forever family out on Nova Scotia Island. She was treated to a day at the spa, and is now a beloved part of the family, where she resides with Bertha and Roland Ford and is frequently visited by Shelley Lee MacDonald and her son William and other members of the family , including a dog named “Jade” who has become fast friends with Lily (now Lilly with two L’s) This little one waited a long time to find her forever home and she provides her new family with lots of laughs owing to her daily antics.
We just had to share this photograph of Ollie (was Juanny) who has found his forever home (Adopted by Danielle Young and family of Edmonton). There is a lot of mystery regarding how Ollie ended up in the garden at the volunteer house/shelter one day. He seemed so sad not to have a family of his own but now he has five family members to give him love and attention. Yes, he ate a door…but they forgave him and he is now doing better. They say they would “never part with Ollie”.
“So far, so awesome. Frijol has adjusted to her new home remarkably well. She has charmed friends, neighbours, and even the vet. She is getting along well with The Mo (Morena) who occasionally has to remind her she is an old lady, set in her ways. She loves lying out in the sun by the back patio and loves to wake you up with face washes first thing in the morning. Frijol is very affectionate and loves her belly rubs. There is something special about adopting a dog who is not a puppy, no need for pee pads.
As the picture indicates, she has declared herself queen of manor.” -John
We are really! really! enjoying Osa!! I have never met a more loving creature! She is adjusting well to our household routines and other pets, she is beginning to understand some commands (sit, stay) that we are teaching her and she is a big hit everywhere we take her! Ken and I enjoy having coffee at favourite coffee spots where the dogs lie peacefully at our feet outside, happily greeting anyone and everyone who passes by. We hear things like, “such nice dogs, so calm, so well behaved, so friendly.”A few folks have taken photos of them and one little boy today played happily with them declaring, “this is the Ritchie Market petting zoo!!” -Barbara
We first saw FDC on Facebook. We had had to say goodbye to our boy Franklin in October due to cancer. I had told my husband that I could never go through that again, but a couple months passed and I started thinking that maybe I could do it again if I knew I was saving a dog from a life on the streets or in a shelter. That’s when we found our Rosie. She has brought so much love and joy to our home. She is always ready to go when you want to get out for a hike and just as ready when you want snuggles. Rosie is such a sweet, beautiful girl and we can’t express how much joy and unconditional love she has brought to us these past 4 months. Thank you Sara and team at FDC !!
Congratulations to them and their forever familes
