Meet 4 year old OWEN!!! This Rockstar/Ladies Man needs a couch to crash on! I am a self described sensitive artsy type, and I fall in love easily! I like to tell the ladies that I am a very musical and soulful dude. I will sing you a song every time a police car, ambulance or Fire truck goes by. Oh, that’s not all ladies! I also love to cuddle and will even try to whisper (errrm, whimper?) sweet nothings in your ear! I am a really social guy. I get kinda worked up and anxious when I am left to my own devices.The good news? Unlike most rockstars I know, I do NOT have a history of throwing parties or destroying hotel rooms -but I will try to insist on going with you, and even make a mad dash for the door!It’s worth a try, right? My ideal pad would be a place with someone who comes home to see me mid-day or with someone who is around most of day. I am not a big fan of apartments because when I can hear the neighbours coming and going, and then I get, like, really depressed and anxious.Why is everyone else out having fun without me??I love to just sit around and jam with my people, but I do have some demons. It’s the rockstar life, man -we all have our demons! Mine is that I’m addicted to chasing cats, squirrels and little fluffy bunnies. Seriously, anything smaller than me better watch out. I’m not sure if there is a 12 step program for that or not…I am also really, really picky about other dogs. Most of them are not my kind of people. Dog parks are just not my kinda place, sorry. Good news! My energy level is right at about a medium, and school age kids or teens are my kind of people. I like the smaller kids, but they don’t like me. Sometimes it is hard not to step on them. I am clumsy like that. The bigger kids (over 7) are pretty good with a dog like me.In terms of exercise, if you are not that into intense workouts, a couple of 20 min walks and a game of fetch with someone each day, and I am ready to crash for the night. Unless you want me to be more active. ‘Cause I’m cool either way. My foster Mom has been working on my street smarts and my manners. I have learned to turn my head away when I burp so I don’t offend the ladies, and wait until she tells me it’s safe to cross the street.I am really hoping this helps me to be more adoptable.Most of all I am hoping there is a real nice place for me to lay my head somewhere out there. If you need a roommate, give me a shout! There is info about adopting on the HBR website at www.homewardboundrescue.ca ! Later!Owen
Meet HBR’s CLEMENTINE!!!”Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.” — Willie Nelson
Likes:Mellow people -“life is too short for drama and theatrics”Liver treats – will literally walk on water for one of these!! *drooling*Lounging around & people watching – “Shhhh!, I can give you the down low on everything happening in the neighborhood. You won’t BELIEVE what Karen said to her husband the other day…..”Organic Gardening
Dislikes:Pigeons Evil. Just pure evil. That is all I have to say about that.loud noises- “One time, while I was minding my own business, the printer in my foster parents office started making terrible noises. It scared me, but I knew I had to be brave. I slowly went to investigate, my people were depending on me! However, when I arrived at the printer you won’t believe what happened! It assaulted me! Yup, a piece of paper came out of nowhere and bopped my nose!! I barked at it for approximately 3 hrs – as you do. The printer has not dared to mess with me since, but loud noises still make me nervous to this very day!”From HBR:Clementine is a sweet and well behaved girl and she also has a condition called cleft lip and palate. Her case is mild and her condition does not stop her from living a full life, but it does require her to keep her exercise at a minimum, especially on hot days. Clementine is house trained and can be trusted alone in the house, but she might bark a bit at first. Clemy is described as a delight, she is so happy to see her people and greets you with the wiggliest bum you ever did see!She gets along well with other mellow dogs (but would like to be the only dog so all the attention goes to her) and she has not be exposed to cats yet.If you would like to learn more about CLEMENTINE, please visit our website or click the Adoptable Dogs tab!
