Tasha Urgently Needs a Home!

Don’t you think I am a pretty girl?

Thank you for your interest in Tasha. She has a new home!

Tasha is an Oorang-type, very large Airegirl who urgently needs a new home so she can have the hip surgery she so desperately requires. If you provide the home, AireCanada will provide the necessary surgery.

Here’s the situation. Tasha until recently was placed in a foster-to-adopt situation. However, when it was learned that Tasha has severe hip dysplasia which will require surgical intervention, the foster home, due to distance from the veterinarian’s office and an overabundance of stairs in their home, sadly agreed that AireCanada should search for a new placement for this dog. Tasha is presently in a temporary foster situation but needs a foster placement, or even better, a permanent home, with reasonable access to our veterinarian’s clinics in either Coquitlam or North Vancouver.  A home with a limited number of stairs would be considered a bonus.

I have a lot of presence even if I do limp. It’s my left hip that hurts. Despite the pain, I still will greet you happily and wag my tail for you, though.

Tasha is very much a “people” Airedale. She loves people and is very friendly. We have learned that Tasha co-exists nicely with other dogs as long as the dogs are polite and avoid jostling her sore hip. Due to pain, she doesn’t play much at the moment but is happy to be with the current foster home’s two Airedales — a male and a female. She has also visited a training facility that boards dogs and got along well with the other dogs present. Dogs met outside the home may provoke some barking and lunging, an issue that can be addressed through training and may be a result of lack of socialization during puppyhood along with the current high level of pain Tasha is experiencing.

This is me with my friend, Lizi. Lizi weighs about 50 pounds. I tipped the scales at 90 pounds when I last visited Dr. Cichon but I could afford to lose another 10 pounds to regain my girlish figure!

We think that Tasha is a very special girl who deserves every chance AireCanada — and you — can provide her to live a happy and pain-free life.

Tasha is only four years old!

Can you find space in your heart for this  lovely Airedale?

Tasha is available immediately. The sooner she can be placed, the sooner she can have her surgery. A completed online application form from our website is required to either adopt or foster Tasha. If you have already completed an application form and are interested in Tasha, please contact us at the email address below.

Could I come live with you? Please?

  1. We are close & would love to adopt Tasha, but sadly, we are maxed out on dogs at this time. 🙁 Fingers crossed for a perfect new home and family for this lovely girl!
