Wolfie

I’m Wolfie, and my “original” name was given by my rescuers in Lebanon. I guess they thought I looked a bit like a wolf.

I’m super sweet, about 7 years old, and longing for a home that will make me their best buddy.

You see, I was chained all my life outside, and people would stop and look at me screaming when I was trying to poop. I just couldn’t, it was excruciating pain as I had a major digestion issue.

So I was seized from this horrible place and brought to a vet where I had major surgery for chronic megacolon. However, I will have to remain on gastrointestinal high fiber food plus laxatives for the rest of my life.

Now let’s talk about my future! A home with or without kids, active or mellow, home or gone during the day, all works for me.

I’m super easy-going, never bark, and absolutely fantastic to live with.

I could be your next best buddy, who knows?

Chiko with a K

I’m Chiko with a K, and I’m a 12-year-old chihuahua mix.

I’ve been given up for the usual reasons, “we’re going through a divorce, my new landlord won’t accept my dog”.

I loved the kids, I’m older than both. They would cuddle and hug me, it was a sad goodbye.

I’m not keen on men….don’t trust them all.

I’m quiet and clean, I just need a routine, food, love, and a comfy bed and I’ll be happy!

If you want to give me that great home for my senior years, go to http://www.sophiesdogadoption.com/application-forms/adoption-form/ and follow the procedure to obtain an application form.

I’m still very healthy and have a few good years still to go. I’ll love you till my last breath!

Rhône

Do you like Chihuahuas? I may be the girl for you. Here’s my story, you decide.

My name is Rhône and unfortunately, my old Mom passed away two weeks ago and I was left orphaned.

I’m 7 years old but quite fat at 7 lbs. I was 8.8 lbs when I first arrived. You see, Mom never bought me dog food. She’s made a plate for her, and one for me.I never left her side, went everywhere with her in a bag, and basically, she was my world.

She couldn’t take me for walks as she was legally blind and couldn’t go far but I would love to go walking around your neighborhood. Due to my eating habits, my teeth are not good, and one of my legs is having a hard time, so I’m pretty much looking for someone who will take good care of me. I was on the verge of needing a wheelchair but since I’ve lost some weight, I am getting around much better. I can even go up the stairs now.

I get along very well with the dogs and cats in my foster home. I do however prefer to be the main attraction. I’m a bit of a Diva you see. I am not suitable for children. I can stay home alone as long as you don’t make a big deal when you leave. If you think we could become BFFs, fill out an application and send it in. I am looking for a very mellow household with a maximum of 2 people .

Rocky B4

Another Rocky from the streets of Beirut?  That’s me! I’m known as Rocky B4, I’m about a year old and my mix is a guess. 

I’m the size of a lab, yellow/red in color, and about 60 lbs.

So far I’ve been very nice, good with other dogs, getting used to the crate, and not afraid of anything.

I have not been tested with cats, but I would be good with dog-savvy kids. I’m a little bouncy so ideally over 8 years old so I don’t knock them over.

I am eager to please and am learning rules pretty quickly.

If you think I could make your family a great companion, send in your application to info@sophiesdogadoption.com

Finn

My name is Finn, I’m a 2 year old pointer, and I was rescued from Armenia.

I had some trauma when I was around 1yr old which led to my blindness. This took me for a loop and it took some time to adjust but I am as good as ever. 

My amazing rescuer made sure I received the care I needed by having a vet give me a physical where I was vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

Her love for me made her make arrangements so I could leave  the boarding facility, and was sent to Montreal for a chance at the best life ever.

It’s true, I am now blind in both eyes, however, I do not let this get me down. At my foster’s home I have mapped out their home and know where the steps are to go up and down, where the water is, my bed and where my buddy Lucas’s room is situated. Sometimes he closes the door so when I head to his room I bump into it. 

No worries, because I have a hard head.

I really enjoy walking and even trotting along, so if you enjoy running I would make the perfect jogging partner.  I won’t complain and I will happily let you decide where you would like to run. 

I am living with a couple of other dogs right now and am fine to be part of their pack but it’s humans I love to hang with.

Food is what drives me to counter surf so if you are not keeping an eye on your plate of food, my nose will lead me right to it, and hey, finders keepers, right?

I also enjoy the dog park where I have room to wander, explore and smell new things. There are some other nice dogs at the park and I enjoy it very much when their owners pet me. If dogs try and fight, I find it’s best just to wander away from all that drama…

 What’s fun is when my foster parents call me from far away, hearing their voice I follow the sound right up to them and prance through their legs. It’s a game we like to play..

To be honest, I do whine when wanting food, this is something I really need to work on. 

Being an independent guy , I like to wander in the back yard and even go through a fence to get to the neighbours back yard.

Other than being nearly perfect, I will bark at new noises. I have been blessed with a solid bark so I will either need to be in a home with great neighbours who love dogs or in a detached home.

Would you like a companion that is somewhat low key and doesn’t make too many demands? I would love to meet you. Please see me for what a beautiful character I am and not underestimate the amazing companion I can be. I would also be great with kids.

Sincerely, 
Finn

Pucci

Hi Canada, I just arrived from Beirut and love it here!

I once had a family, but the economy being so bad in Lebanon, my family just left me on the streets to fend for myself.

Here is what my foster mom (and Sophie’s assistant) Annie has to say about me.

Pucci is a 7 yr old non-shedding male. He’s in excellent health. He has the stamina of a young dog. His teeth are in super shape. He only has a bit of tartar. He weighs about 35 lbs and is a Poodle mix (best guess).

Pucci is AWESOME! He’s sweet, bright, loving, mellow and he is wonderful with dogs and cats.

Pucci was used as a stud back in Lebanon but, when that huge blast paralyzed Beirut, poor Pucci was left behind in a small enclosure. He was extremely lucky to be rescued in time. He had been there for quite some time so you can imagine how filthy and dehydrated he was. That’s all behind him now thankfully!

Pucci does need to learn the basics like good leash-walking skills and obedience but he’s so eager to please that training him is easy. He walks quite well on a slip lead. Just make sure to keep it short so he won’t pull.

He does have a fear of men or anyone approaching him too quickly hence the need for keeping the leash short when you’re out walking him and you’ll want to direct him to his crate when people come over. He is crate-trained. He loves his cozy den. He rarely barks. He is protective around strangers but a firm “NO” snaps him out of it.

He does have some minor prey drive with small critters like squirrels and such (he chases for about 2 seconds and gives up). He has no resource guarding at all. He is submissive by nature. He can get mouthy if you get him too excited. He will nibble at your hand in a playful manner but it is not a behaviour to be encouraged.

As a precaution, we don’t recommend Pucci go to a home with children or small critters. He benefits from a great deal of structure and boundaries in his foster home. It is what he needs in order to thrive. A peaceful home with daily exercise and mental stimulation along with consistant training will ensure Pucci continues to blossom into the balanced dog he deserves to be. He is quick to bond with his human. He likes to lay at your feet and rest his head on your knee. His fur is very soft. He loves being petted.

If you have experience with obedience training and you’re looking for a non-shedding dog please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download our adoption form.

Lizzy B

I am Lizzie B, I was rescued from the streets of Lebanon after having been shot in the face while pregnant.
Unfortunately my pups died before I could deliver them, but thankfully I was rescued and brought to a vet.
My sight could not be saved and have become blind as a result. I’m about 2 years old, and gentle as can be. I need time to adapt to new environments, but with patience and love, I will get more confident.
I’m good with other dogs, preferably calm dogs, and cats don’t really bother me. I’m not ideal for kids unless they are over 12 yrs old and dog-savvy. I need a calm and peaceful home. Aside from being blind, I am in good health.

I may be a shepherd mix, who knows, I can’t tell because I’m blind. I’m still beautiful, both inside and out. I love being loved.

Ideally I’m looking for someone who does NOT plan on taking me for walks on a leash. I’m very scared and don’t like to leave the property. I also really hate being left home alone.

So a ground floor and a yard are a MUST. Kids are fine if they want to give me love. But I’m not much of a “play buddy”. No ball fetching or running around for me.

Dogs I can get along with, but I need to establish my rules when it comes to food.

If you want a cuddly, affectionate, loving dog, give me a shout! But be patient, I’ll need to trust you fully before I’ll commit.

Rain

I’m Rain and I was found on the highway in the pouring rain in Beirut.

I arrived in Montreal this April and am still super nervous. I’m not used to human contact, so I’m looking for a home that will give me time to adjust to home.

I’m scared but not aggressive, however, touching me is a thing I still don’t like. Not having ever had a collar or leash, that freaks me out.

So I need a home with a fully fenced-in yard so I can go in and out on my own. I’m good with dogs but do show some mild resource guarding with my food. I am not a good candidate for children or cats.

I’m ok in the crate, which is preferred when you’re out just in case.

I’m about 3 years old with a lifetime of learning still to come. I am clean in the house and will scratch at the door to go out. I actually enjoy being outside now that it’s getting warm. You must supervise me however as I tend to flee. I always look sad. I recently had puppies when I was found but my rescuers were unsuccessful in locating them. It is very important that you do not feel sorry for me, however. I need you to be confident and surround me with positive energy so I can feed that off of you.

If you think I’m the one you want to love and help become the balanced and fulfilled pooch I deserve to be.

Bailey B

I’m Bailey B. Was found on the streets of Lebanon and had the wonderful opportunity to come to find a home in Canada.

Obviously, I’m a Terrier, so the attitude comes with it. I’m most likely a Beagle/Daschund mix, about 5 years old. I do like kids, and love attention and affection, but also a little spoiled. So no small children for me, please. Mature and dog-savvy kids over 10 could do. No cats or other small pets. I am dog selective so a proper intro is a must.

I can nip at you if you do stuff I don’t like and can be dominant in play. So ideally an experienced family with my type of breed would be best. However I’m not a very active dog, so I don’t like biking, jogging, or long walks for me. Regular daily exercise and plenty of mental stimulation will keep me happy. My new home must absolutely offer me a great deal of structure. That means not letting me up on the couch or bed without your permission. I can be quite manipulative so it’s important you set the tone for me the moment I arrive. You’re in charge, not me.

If you think I’m the pooch for you and you’re ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, fill in your application!

Chance B

Hello, my name is Chance B.

I am a 5-year-old female American Pitbull Terrier-American Bulldog mix.
I weigh about 50 lbs and I’m in good health.

I am an amazing girl originally rescued in Lebanon and I’m now looking for my forever home here in Montreal.

I am quite shy at first but once I start trusting you I love giving hugs and will be your best friend. I will follow your lead and make sure you’re safe.

I don’t pull on walks but I do run after squirrels and cats. While I walk, my attention stays on who is walking me. I don’t bark except when I play with my doggy friends.

I love going to the dog park and making new friends .

I run as if I was still a puppy. I’m still quite young at only 5 years old and need my daily exercise.

I am house-trained and wait for you to get up so we can take a nice morning walk. I love car rides.

I am incredibly sweet and bright. Very eager to please and engaging. To know me is to love me. I have displayed some prey drive when I see cats or squirrels on my walks so I would not be a good match to live with small animals. I have not displayed any type of resource guarding.

If you have good knowledge of my breed and decent dog training experience, I just might be the ideal pooch for you. If you’re ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, send in your application.

Save a life, make a friend!
