Meet Ody!! This sweet girl is only 5 months old and is looking for her forever home. Ody is a combination of Labrador and cuteness ...maybe Spaniel ....maybe Collie...the jury is still out but what we do know is that she is adorable!! Ody has just learnt how to sit and is working on leash skills with the help of her awesome foster. Ody needs an active family as she is a busy girl but at this time we are looking for an adult home or with children aged 15 plus as she can get a little grabby and over zealous when playing. Positive reinforcement training classes are a must for Ody and are a requirement for her adoption. Ody needs a family who are willing to dedicate the time and energy to this beautiful girl that she deserves.
Copper is ready for a family of his own!! This sweet Texan cutie has had quite the journey to get into our care. Copper landed in a high kill shelter, with a poor coat, dried and cracked paws, covered in grease and suffering from a thyroid condition and heart worm positive. A lovely lady from Ontario saved him from the shelter and he went on to stay with a big-hearted foster family, where he was diagnosed as heart worm positive before undergoing treatment. At approx. 4-6 years of age, Copper is a handsome Lab/ Hound/Golden Retriever who has one of the sweetest souls ever, but his life before remains a bit of a mystery and his being in a high kill shelter heart breaking. This boy is a giant love and adores attention and ‘family time’. Copper does not enjoy the company of other dogs (or cats) so he will need to be the only canine in the home. This boy loves classical music and will sing along with his favourites. After joining our care it was determined through x-rays that Copper will need a bi-lateral cruciate surgery (knee surgeries). We have already completed his first surgery and he is already improved in walking and movement. Sadly due to complications in rehab he is not able to have the second surgery done. With the one leg done there still is markable improvement and we can see how much happier he is. This sweet boy is now ready to move into his next chapter of life which is having a loving family to call his very own. We are looking for an adult home or one with children in late teens. Loyal, gentle , and affectionate he will steal your heart and give you his very quickly.
Hi, I'm Zeke! I have been waiting for my perfect home for a very long time. I have a few special requirements that don't fit every family, and a few quirks that will deter some folks, but I am trying so hard to be my absolute best! I am a Rotti mix, about 6.5 years old and just under 80 lbs. I am looking for an adult family who has experience with similar breeds and will understand some things about me: that I am protective of my home, naturally wary of strangers, and that it takes me a while to trust a new person. My new family must be sure to go very slowly with me in the beginning to gain my trust. They must be 100% committed to positive training and never use harsh language or corrections with me as this will destroy my trust; I am very sensitive! It scares and worries me when humans handle my body, especially my feet, and I must be muzzled when I go see the vet. I walk very politely on a leash but when I see other leashed dogs (and sometimes people who scare me) I react to them, so my new family must be aware of this and help me feel safe and comfortable. For this reason crowded living situations, apartments or busy cities are not for me and I need to live in a detached home with a fenced yard. I have lived with other dogs and can have some doggie friends, but I don't get along with every dog and would like to be the only pet in my new home. I care so much more about interacting with my humans than I do about playing with other dogs, and would like to have all your attention! I am super affectionate with people I trust. I love, love, love playing Fetch and could do it all day. I also love long hikes in the country, but dog parks are not for me. As attached as I am to my people, I don't mind being left alone in the home while my family is out; I am crate trained but also fine when left loose in the house. My foster mom says I am easy to live with and a such a good boy who just needs to find a dog experienced family willing to give me a chance!
Alice has gone from a scrawny, drastically underweight American Bulldog dumped in a construction site, producing milk but with no evident puppies to a stunning, solid, athletic girl who is just a big marshmallow.
This sweet girl is approximately 3 and has been through quite a lot, she was hit by a car when dumped which smashed her hip and this went untreated for a period of time until she came into our care. She has recovered beautifully and is now ready for a family to call her own. True to the breed she has a list of allergies however we have managed to keep things under control with a regulated diet. Her play style is a little rough so we are looking for a home with kids over the age of 15, ideally with some breed experience. Continued training is mandatory to build on her confidence and socialization.
Bella is a lovely 'Island Girl' brought up from St Lucia by another rescue a year ago. This little monkey sadly took off shortly after having arrived in Canada and ran at large for 7 months through last year's cruel cold of winter and harsh heat of summer. Finally, she was caught. When our rescue was asked to take her in we of course welcomed her into a foster home. Bella is a lovely girl, crazy smart, sassy, funny, bossy and silly - she keeps her fosters on their toes. Bella is still currently a HIGH FLIGHT RISK. Only very dog savvy, seasoned applicants will be considered. Bella is not good with cats or small animals, and is best in a pack environment. She also needs an adult home only no children. Bella is as pretty as she is charming, so steals the hearts of all she meets.
*We cannot stress enough how clever she is and how quickly she could be gone, so please applicants with strong, experienced handling backgrounds only.
* Bella is working on her good canine skills and currently not available.
