Spring is in the air, or so it would seem. Maybe the lack of snow and cold temperatures have tricked people into thinking it's actually April, but there is definitely a Spring vibe in the market to kick off the new year. Buying inquiries are up, listing inquires are up, and so is the overall inventory across the board. The only thing that is down, it would seem, is the absorption rate which fell quite dramatically this week. A few anomaly weeks to end 2016 and start 2017 have given a bit of a marker for this to happen, but the absorption rate made a significant reduction as we rally toward the "real" stats of the year. I guess we will have to wait and see if it holds. All in all we lead off the year on a good note, and it will be interesting to see if we finally take the momentum from early 2016 and run with it. You will have to stay tuned to find out! Thanks for stopping by!
Harriet is a keen, beautiful lady prepared to build a bond with a family who has lots of time to commit to a companion. She is a very loving girl but does have some behavioural issues that need to be addressed.
Her adoption requirements are as follows:
-Children over the age of 12.
-A home free of other pets.
-A family that is not away from home for long periods of time due to separation anxiety.
-Enrolment in obedience classes is mandatory upon adoption.
This "cuddly companion" is available through Homeward Bound City Pound, a non profit rescue organization from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. More info about him, other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE
