4)staring; 5)eating; 6)staring. He likes going for walks when he feels like it, otherwise he can be seen near or on the couch – preferably with a chewstick in his mouth.

He loves snuggles, naps, and the feeling of the wind through his ears when he runs.

Freja is a sweet, loving young lady. She loves to run, chew bones, give kisses and play – and in-between all the playing – she loves to snuggle!

Ruby is a playful and very loyal girl! Her best friend is her deaf cat sister, Molly. Ruby lives in Niagara on the Lake and enjoys walking to the craft breweries.
Type & Colour: Miniature wire-haired, Wild Boer; Male
Timo is a thinker and probably more serious than the average dog – however there is nothing he will not do for an empty plastic bottle – running 25 meter is an easy feat if a bottle is the reward.
Type & Colour: Brown Dapple Tweenie
Norah eagerly awaits her maiden run as a 2 year old. She is 0/0 so far this year. Norah likes nothing more than a nice roll in the long grass and upping her protein intake by eating worms that she has dug up, just like a robin. When she’s not napping, in preparation for this derby, she enjoys chewing everything her mom owns but only if it’s fine leather.
Type & Colour: Black & tan, long-haired
Penny (Penelope) was a rescue originally from a breeder who we took from a bad situation. She is dumb as nails but so cute and has such a personality. Penny is almost 2 years old and lives with her rescue sister who is a Dachshund/Jack Russell mix and her human 13-month-old brother.
Type & Colour: Miniature brown with tan spots
Burley Is almost 3 years old and loves to play….with anyone or anything. He also loves to burrow under things and is super curious!
