Toronto Animal Services South is doing some dogsitting for TAS West. Twelve pups recently popped out of mom, Loki, who is a Cane Corso. They're just weeks old and they're all squirmy little things who know nothing yet about the world they've been plopped into. Let's hope that by the time they do become a bit more cognizant of their surroundings, they'll be in decent foster care.
Here's mommy Cane Corso on a well-deserved break. She's a very nice dog unless there is high value food in her vicinity in which case she becomes a royal bitch - even to her pups - so that's something that's going to have to be worked on. I gave her some dog cookies, though, and she was quite good, sitting for me and waiting, so she's definitely workable.
Here's a video of her babies:
You can see the mom in the kennel across the aisle. She's only there because I needed a few moments without her in the shot to video the pups. She's whining because she knows I'm going to take her out and she's wishing I'd hurry up goddammit.
For adoption information on these and other dogs (and cats and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.
