Hi, I'm Mahjong, SCARS' little diamond in the rough. SCARS thinks that I'm a two and a half year old Corgi mix. At least I have the basic short and thick body shape of the Corgi. Last January I arrived with my five new puppies from a community close to Edmonton. We were all in very bad shape - skinny, covered in lice, frightened and wary of people. My first priority was to nurse and raise my babies so that they would be healthy and ready for a foster home. During this time, my foster mom left me in a quiet place so that I wouldn't be stressed and convey that stress to my puppies. Once my puppies had moved on to foster homes and then to adoptive homes, my foster mom began to work with me. I really like being with people and would do a play bow to show her my good intentions, but I wasn't very keen on being touched. I've come such a long long way since January 2015. I will follow you, be thrilled to see you, allow you to pet me - and I love it. I'm just not used to it yet. My playmate is Gear, a big energetic guy. So I can handle active play. Check out the video of Gear and I playing together! SCARS thinks that I should be adopted by an experienced, patient, kind dog person, ideally with another dog in the house. I really need work on the leash, because I hate it and will chew through it in no time. Sorry, that's where the experienced dog person comes into play. If you would like a rewarding project - pick me. Think of the satisfaction and love that you'll get if you take me home, train me, love me and help me reach my potential.

I'm a Sanctuary AnimalWhat's a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioral issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family. SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities. We look to businesses to sponsor Sanctuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them. Click here learn more about our Sanctuary Animals
Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
What does 'Manageable' mean? This animal can be integrated into a home however will need SPECIFIC supports in place for this to be successful.
