Hello everyone! My name is Atchi and I'm a 2 yr old male Akita/Malamute/ Chow Chow mix (best guess). I originally came from a Native Reserve near Shawinigan and was brought to the SPA Mauricie where the good folks there quickly realized that living in a shelter environment was not ideal for me. Sophie's Dog Adoption saw I was in need of help and decided to take me in under their care. I'm now staying with one of SDA's most wonderful foster homes until my perfect forever home can be found. I'm a really sweet pooch, loving, very bright, eager to please, know my basic commands, walk well with a harness right by your side without pulling and I'm extremely loyal to my humans. I'm a big boy that requires regular brushing and daily exercise. I also need a home with structure and consistency like all dogs . I'm getting used to living in the city and things are going very well. I'm not so great around certain dogs. Other adult males seem to be an issue for me but I do well with females and young dogs as long as they are not too annoying or hyper. I'm not a good match for a home with a cat. True to my nature, I am protective of my family. Since I pretty much had to fend for myself when I was living as a stray on the Reserve, I did develop resource guarding issues but now that I'm in a stable home where I get regular meals, it will be much easier to correct that behaviour. I only showed resource guarding around other animals, never humans. I have a tendency to become territorial of my humans and home if I'm not given the proper leadership. My future humans will need to ensure that I get lots of exercise daily and excellent structure along with consistency. I must know that it is not my job to guard you or the house every time someone comes over or greets us on the street. If you think I'm the ideal pooch for you, please write to info@sophiesdogadoption.com and tell Sophie why you feel you and I would be a great match. If Sophie likes what she reads, you will then be asked to fill out the adoption request form located on the SDA web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com

Hi everybody! My name is Dexter and I'm a 7 yr old Maltese/Jack Russell male. I'm a very easy-going and rather independent fellow who is looking for a nice retired couple or person to spend the rest of my life with. I'm low-energy and in great health. I weigh about 20 lbs so I fit nicely next to you on the couch. I like to be near you but won't impose on you to get lots of attention. I'm house-trained of course and know my basic commands. Not a fan of staying home alone or going on long walks. I'm a home-body who enjoys short walks and time in the yard. I need a peaceful home with structure and stability. What I need most is a steady and loving leader to keep me balanced and fulfilled. I was acting pretty neurotic with my previous owner but ever since I left and became one of Sophie's dogs, I have been behaving like a normal dog. I plan on staying that way. If you think you'd be the ideal person(s) for me, please write to Sophie at info@sophiesdogadoption.com and tell her why you feel you are the best fit for me. if she likes what she reads, you will then be asked to fill out the adoption form located on her web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com and screening will follow. Montreal and area.

  • Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello there guys and gals! My name is Mika Chika and I'm an 8 yr old Chihuahua. I know I'm a super cute little girl but please look beyond that and remember that I'm a dog and I have dog needs. That means structure, boundaries, regular exercise and no spoiling me rotten like a baby. I have this rather bad habit I learned from my previous home where I steal food right off plates if I don't get what I beg for. Don't let me manipulate you. According to my "papers" I'm also mixed with Miniature Pinsher. Whether that is true or not is anybody's guess. I came form a backyard breeder like so many others with false papers. One thing is for sure, whatever I may be mixed with, it's fabulous just like me. ;) I'm quite a good pooch all in all. I'm used to kids, good with dogs and cats and I love to be included in the lives of my humans. DoN,t expect me to be happy about being put in a room alone while you're having a party. I'm fine being home alone when no one else is home however. I'm a tad on the hubby side right now but my foster home is working on getting me down to a healthy weight. Like most Chihuahuas, I'm energetic, curious, can get vocal at people passing by while I'm looking out the window but I respond well to the "quiet command". I'm in good health aside from that bit of extra weight. My teeth are very nice. I'm both house-trained and pipi pad trained but I prefer to go outside to do my business. Pipi pads come in handy when you're gone a long time or it's freezing outside. If you're ready to be my forever home for the rest of my life and you are able to offer me the stable, structured and loving home I deserve, please write to info@sophiesdogadoption.com and tell Sophie all about you and why you think we'd be a great match. If Sophie likes what she reads, you will then be asked to fill out the adoption form located on her web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com

Hi there everybody! I'm Monkey, I'm a Bulldog/Boxer/Lab AKA a Heinz 57 male who was born the runt of the litter in my old home in April 2016. All the puppies were quickly sold away to people but I remained because my back legs were lame and nobody wanted me. That's how I ended up with SDA. I saw Sophie's vets and was sent to the DMV for x-rays which showed that I have a significant scoliosis as well as 2 or 3 fused vertebrae. The neurologist explained that surgery is not an option however. Physiotherapy and regular follow-ups are what's best for me at this point. Thanks to excellent nutrition, the loving care of my foster home and sharing my space with balanced dogs, cats and kids...I am a pretty well rounded puppy despite my health issue. I'm able to get around just fine but I hop like a bunny when I run (see video). I cannot control my bowels due to my compressed spine but I have no issues with urinating. I am house-trained when it comes to pee-pee time. Here is what my foster home had to say about me: "He's very affectionate and playful. He's used to big and small dogs, cats and love the kids. He's very smart! He learns quickly. He eats in his crate and sits and waits until we give him the OK command. He settles very well in his crate both at night and during the day" Monkey will probably not weigh more than 20 lbs once fully grown. His future human(s) should have good puppy training experience. If you think Monkey is the ideal pup for you despite his special needs, please fill out the adoption form located on our web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com
