Canine Ambassadors

We won’t be at Tamar Park this Saturday because of Chinese New Year, but there are so many happy memories to share from last week! It ended up being a very warm and sunny day, we had many visitors and friends come find us, and all the dogs had a great time! ๐Ÿ˜€

Charcoal was a top canine ambassador. He loved all the attention he got and every time he heard his name his tail would start to wag vigorously! He happily said hello to everyone at the dog park, and was very patient with the kids who were still getting used to meeting a dog. He won over the baby who was nervous around big dogs at first, and let a little boy walk him around the dog park. We joked that Charcoal must have been very tired by the end of the day because his tail never stopped wagging!

Sheeba was also very excited to meet everyone. Likeย Charcoal, she loved letting everyone pet her, including the kids. I especially love this photo of her looking up at the little girl. Such a sweet moment!


Sheeba responds very well to her name and every time you call her she would come over to you. Look at that sweet smile! While Charcoal’s ย tail is quite round, Sheeba’s tail is long and fluffy. We loved watching it wag in happiness!

Out of the four dogs Vivian was the most shy, but given just a little bit of extra time, she was happy to let strangers pet her.

And once you get to know her, Vivian is very sweet and cuddly! Throughout the afternoon she would randomly come up to us and snuggle up against our legs to ask us to pet her. She has been introduced to many potential adopters but sadly has not been chosen yet because she is shy at first. Hopefully someone will be willing to give her a chance to get to know them!

Paige loved the car ride and kept looking out the window excitedly. She didn’t mind that it was getting quite crowded on one side of the car… hahaha.


Paige is a gentle girl and she took in everything at the dog park very calmly. Although she didn’t rush over to greet everyone like Charcoal and Sheeba did, she was happy to say hello to anyone who went over to find her!

I love this happy smile!


The PAWsome team would like to wish everyone a happy new year, and good health and good fortune in the year of the rooster!



Leaving the Quiet Corner

When we first arrived at Tamar Park, we let the dogs walk around on leash and sniff everything. There were so many new smells! When we let them off leash, they all decided that this corner was the safest spot to hang out haha.


There were some playful puppies around and I guess our dogs weren’t sure how they felt about that yet. Well, Zipper went out and played with them, but he would always come back and check on his friends. It was very sweet! We just let the rest of them stay in their quiet corner and observe the action for awhile.

Although Kayla and Kebab were a bit nervous at first, once people left them alone, they decided to come out and explore! Kayla loves to catch tennis balls, although I guess she’s not a big fan of bringing it back haha. She made some great leaps though!

Kayla also knows how to shake hands, and loves scratches under the chin.

She’s a beautiful dog with a great smile!

Kebab was a little more quiet than Kayla but he too came out of the bushes to get some attention. It was funny to watch him slip out of the bushes, sniff some dogs, and then retreat back to his safe spot haha. But eventually he stayed outside for good and got some nice massages. He even almost fell asleep a few times!

Don’t you just love Kebab’s “eyebrows”? ๐Ÿ˜›


This was Gaby’s very first outing! She was nervous, yet very calm haha. Whenever the park got too busy, she would quietly find a nice spot for herself to observe everyone. However she also liked to be near her friend Zipper, or one of her favourite volunteers. Zipper was very nice to check in with her once in a while! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Gaby was a good sport and let us dress her up as a princess for a little bit ๐Ÿ˜‰


She has such a beautiful smile!

Zipper is a young and playful boy so he had lots of fun at Tamar Park meeting new friends. He played with some other dogs, and showed off hisย tricks for a treat. He even learned that a tennis ball can be very fun, and is getting the hang of fetching.

He made tons of silly faces and we love these of him as an emperor haha.

Zipper is such a smart and fun dog! And he’s very handsome when he’s not busy making silly faces ๐Ÿ˜‰

All of these wonderful dogs are still waiting for their forever families. Please help us share their photos and videos; I’m sure someone out there is waiting for a dog just like them! ๐Ÿ™‚
