TimminsToday, in partnership with the Timmins and District Humane Society and the Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hello there!

My name is Panda and I am a gentle collie mix.

My hobbies include: laying outside, laying in the house, asking for attention and quick walks.

I am an older boy that needs some TLC. In my foster home I am not that interested of playing toys, but I do like to occasionally chew on my bone. What I am more interested in is behind the ear scratches and just being near you. I do set my paw on you to get attention, just so you know.

I am pretty quiet. I do whimper at other dogs because I want to play with them - I have met a few dogs and was always kind.

On walks I am the perfect companion. In my foster home we have been on a few short walks, and I am good on the leash, I like having slack on my leash. I do jump when I am excited but I always try and make sure I don't jump on you. I have also met and visited some younger kids that were giving me hugs and scratches, and I enjoy laying outside and watching them play.

My foster home currently, has some stairs that I am fairly hesitant about (they are wooden tho) I do want to go up but hesitant to do so.

Other than that, I do enjoy getting brushed (especially the neck area and back) however baths are not my favourite (I get anxious when the water goes on my back), I am not that crazy on rain either. I do like being inside, but it is a split being inside near you and outside.

I have also stayed home alone here and there and made no messes, and just relaxed enjoying the quiet - the neighbours didn't even hear me!
