Sometimes things just don't turn out as planned. Over the weekend, Riley and Fiji were picked up and sent back to Quebec. They were hitting a wall here with almost no one interested in adopting them. They both have their problems but Riley, especially, is a highly trainable, people friendly German Shepherd. He has issues with other dogs, sure, but then so do most other dogs to varying degrees and it's just something that needs to be handled. People just don't seem to be that interested in GSDs at the moment maybe because there haven't been any good Hollywood movies made about them recently. Too bad Marley wasn't a GSD.
But the good news is that they should both be in Quebec rescues soon enough. Riley will be going to a German Shepherd rescue directly. He actually could've gone there sooner but with all the recent puppy mill busts, that rescue had too many unspayed females and at the time Riley was unneutered. Now that TAS has neutered him, he won't be a pregnancy threat.
Fiji will be going to a Catahoula rescue but is still waiting on an opening there. The rescue is located in Ottawa so it's not such a bad thing for her to be held temporarily in Montreal at the SPCA. Fiji's still got leash issues but that's certainly a fixable problem with proper training.
Their journeys aren't over yet.
