Furby McFluff debuts in leading dog magazine

Furby appears in this month's issue of Cesar's Way magazine which hit the stores today. He is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame in one of America's leading dog magazines. Cesar's Way has introduced a series called True Tails. Readers are invited to send in happy ending stories of rescue dogs.

Mr. McFluff has led an interesting life. I went to the Quinte Humane Society to adopt what I thought was a Chow cross. When I realized that Furby was definitely an un-Chow, I decided to rescue him anyway. Since coming to live with us four years ago, he has received Canadian Kennel Club Canine Good Neighbour certification and become a member of Winstead Dogs’ Synchronized Walking Team.  He has also take part in a tag day to raise money for the Loyalist Humane Society. Furby is now taking courses in Advanced Obedience at Winstead Dogs.

When we adopted Furby, everyone had a theory on his breeding. Some people thought he was a Nova Scotia Duck Toller, while others said he was a Golden Retriever cross. To determine his parentage I had him DNA tested. We now know that one of his parents was likely to have been a purebred Border Collie. Rough Collie and Shetland Sheepdog are also in the mix.
