I've found my furever family!


We're happy to tell you that Roxy has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Today on this rainy day in Southern Ontario, SPIN's Roxy was officially adopted and is off on a new adventure.

Roxy arrived into SPIN with Marlin and Cocoa in Feb. 2024. When taken for her wellness exam the vet noted a concerning mammary growth. When spayed in March they actually excised three masses:

  • Mass #1 (left middle gland) was a traditional intraductal papillary and tubular mammary adenoma, is benign and not expected to return.
  • Mass #2, from the left caudal mammary gland, is not actually a mammary gland but a hyperplastic inguinal lymph node. Cause unknown and also benign.
  • Mass #3, from the left lateral thoracic wall, is another hyperplastic lymph node. Cause unknown and also benign.

No more mammary growths are expected now that the spay is done. Well phew! And oh by the way, while these growths increased the cost of her spay, SPIN was able to say, without any hesitation, please go ahead. We have poodle people who have our back!

We have enjoyed her foster Dad’s, Steve, posts about Roxy's journey to adoption. And now the day has arrived. So this family has applied and expressed interest in a number of dogs. They have waited for a a good long time for the right fit. Rusty was too big and energetic and although they had an official meet and greet they agreed that he was not for them. Duchess loved extra long walks and again, not a great fit. BUT they hung in there looking looking looking, trusting SPIN and the process. They didn't give up.

Finally they joined Steve on one of his group walks and met Roxy. Now this. This is the right dog for us! Steve, for all that he is happy for Roxy, was still a bit saddened. Roxy just hopped in their car and off she went.
