So i guess with the kids all tucked away into their respective grade levels, focus starts back on the real estate market? In an unusual turn of events, the overall inventory gained a decent amount, which isn't the norm for this time of year. Usually, Autumn carries the trend of decreasing inventory through it's months, then passes the torch to the Winter season, where it bottoms out for the year. Might be just an exchange of extremes as the ebb and flow continues, but seeing such a mix of activity this late in the market year definitely changes it up. Fall, in my opinion, has always been a great time of year to sell. Leftover inventory from the Spring is long gone, and the Summer challengers have excited the area, leaving any new entries a "hot ticket" of interest as Buyers yet to secure their abode stand ready to pounce on any hot deals in their areas of interest. Fall is starting off on an interesting foot, so stay tuned to keep up to date with all the developing details! Thanks for stopping by!
Boo is a lovely female canine who has made her way to us all the way from Cape Breton! This well traveled pup would be best suited to a home with older children (16 yrs and older) who have some dog experience. Boo is a strong dog who would like to find an owner to help teach her how to walk properly on leash.
If you would like to meet her feel free to stop into the shelter anytime during our business hours to take this fancy pup out for a walk.
This "cuddly companion" is available through the Dartmouth SPCA, 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
