Northern pup Takota’s mom Cindy explained to us in her last update that Takota’s name means “friend to all”. In the year since Takota was adopted as a puppy, he’s become living proof of his name’s translation.
This joyful boy, who came into BCFS’ foster care program from Ontario’s far north last year with his seven Husky/Lab/Shepherd mix siblings, is now best friends with his family’s adult dog Maizy.
Growing up with Maizy to play with, show him the way and be his best friend has been wonderful for both Takota and Maizy. And we have video clips! We took still frames from Cindy’s videos to preview her delightful short clips of Takota:
1) As a puppy playing with Maizy in their yard — Click to see video
And, 2) As an adult romping with Maizy! Click to see video
Clearly these two are best friends! Dogs are incredibly social, and having a canine friend can help bring out the best in both dogs.
Cindy also sends a note:
Thought you would like to see how handsome this little boy is!!! It has been a little over a Year… he has been wonderful for Maizy… his calmness helps her.
While he has not been anywhere near an angel… ate our thanksgiving carrot cake off the counter as well as Ed’s nice head phones, he is 100% love and the most popular puppy at his Tuesday puppy play. Thank you again for letting us adopt him!!! Cindy
Well, the carrot cake and headphones might not have survived, but what Takota lacks in manners, he makes up for in lovability.
Puppy Takota before his rescue. We knew he was special!
Takota has been given a life of joy, fun and love from his human, canine and feline family (he has a kitty sibling, Taz, too!) All because volunteers worked so hard to enable BCFS to rescue Takota and his siblings, and because Cindy and her family chose to adopt. We’re grateful to all.
As the year 2018 winds to a close, we hope the wisdom and compassion in the #AdoptDontShop message continues to spread and be embraced. Puppy, adult, or senior, healthy, sick or disabled, BCFS is there for them all.
