Canela was left tied to a tree by “owners” who no longer wanted her. She has been with Terry and John for many years now, and we consider her a sanctuary dog who will live out her life with us. We aren’t sure what mix of breeds Canela is-sometimes we think she is part seal, other times part velveteen rabbit, and often we think she has some mole in her, as she loves to dig! She is a chunky little dog, probably about ten or twelve years old, and is just as sweet as can be. She is one of the “Porch dogs” and spends her days sunning herself in the garden of the main house, or lounging on the enclosed dog porch with the other sanctuary dogs.

Aside from being a champion digger, Canela’s hobbies include barking at visitors and jumping up on anyone who comes to visit. She also practices selective deafness on walks in order to stretch them out as long as possible. Despite being a naughty little lady much of the time, Canela still manages to charm everyone who meets her with her soft brown eyes and sweet nature.

Canela would love to have a sponsor to call her own.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping dogs and cats in Antigua. We sterilize, rehabilite and find homes, and work with other rescue groups.
