July 11, 2019 eblast:


Neil (or Neal) is a masculine given name of Gaelic origin. Most authorities cite the meaning of Neil in the context of a surname as meaning champion.


But what champion gets abandoned by his family?

He arrived at the shelter at the end of June. No identification. An examination by the shelter vet revealed a couple things. He's senior, at least 10 years old, and he has a significant heart murmur. In other words, he wasn't adoptable through the shelter.

He needed a Rescue Group to gather him up and take him back to their repair shop.

And so that's just what we did.


Neil is a complicated case.

In less than 12 hours, our vets determined a diagnosis of pneumonia which may have been triggered by Kennel Cough. Before we can even consider a neuter operation, he must get better first. But with the possibility of Kennel Cough, he cannot go to a foster home with other dogs no matter how much he seems to love other dogs. Rest assured, we're working on it. In the meantime, he's in hospital trying not to lose his beautiful spirit.

But Neal is a champ, don't forget. And we are his biggest fans.


Our sincere thanks to Toronto Animal Services for saving Neal first and for entrusting us with his future!
