Dogs available for adoption
Hi there everyone! My name is Bailey. I'm a 5 yr old mixed breed male. I was originally sold as a Maltese puppy but I look a lot more like a Lhasa Apso/Shih-Tzu mix. I was adopted a few months ago but am now being returned due to the fact that I bite when I get startled or I'm "protecting" my humans or things. I'm a great little guy in the right environement. I weigh about 18 lbs. I'm very engaging, sweet and loving with people. I can be somewhat dog selective however. It really depends on the dog. I've met several dogs on walks and at the park thanks to my current foster home and I was very well-behaved but I have never lived with any dogs or cats. I was quite spoiled by my former owner so I was used to being the boss. My new human(s) will need to provide me with structure, daily exercise, mental stimulation and rules so I don't regress to my old ways. My ideal home should be a calm one with plenty of structure otherwise I get anxious. You can't just give me free run of the house. You must have rules for me like no jumping on the couch without permission, no sleeping with you in your bed at night., make me wait and require me to be calm before you feed me or take me out for a walk, use the crate as my "go to place" when you leave me home alone. I'm house-trained, not a big barker and I'm great on walks. I'm in excellent health. I have a lot of great qualities. I just need to find the right person. If you think you're the right one for me and you're ready to commit to me for the next 10 to 15 years, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com

URGENT! FOSTER HOME ALSO NEEDED. My name is Capone, I'm looking for a new home, and my story is worth reading till the end. I'm a sweet, loving, 3 year old Bull Terrier. I'm gorgeous and love people. The main thing to know about me, though, is that I am NOT good at all with other dogs. I once was, but the last few months of my life changed me. I lived in the country with a cat and my owner. I never cared for the neighbour dog, and we got into a few brawls, but nothing serious. One day, my human Dad suddenly passed away, and it took 4 days before we were discovered. The cat, Al, and I remained with his body, and when we were found, I was brought to the local pound. The next of kin was then contacted about dad, and when they callrd the pound about me, they were told I was going to be put down because of my breed.... That's when Sophie came into my life and agreed to take me in. She took me to a dog park with a muzzle, just to see my behaviour, and even though not yet neutered, I was great. The next day, I went to the same park, and a dog attacked me and bit me in the face. I managed to get my muzzle off, and grabbed him by the collar. I left, but was quite reactive by then... Then I went to a foster home, who had a Pitbull that I played with. Tug of war turned into me grabbing her collar, and she bit me in the face.... So you can imagine, I became very reactive and have been so ever since. Then, a bad incident happened as I was being let out of the car for a pee, I got riled up at dogs, Sophie lost control as I am quite strong, and went after one of them. It didn't turn out well. Being in the city where dogs are hated, you can imagine that I am not welcome in Montreal, and actually don't care for it. Now for my positive side: I am mellow, non destructive, very affectionate, eager to please, very smart and willing to learn, funny and goofy. I love talking when I greet you, and that always makes Sophie smile! So if you live in the country, can love me as an only dog, and want me to make you laugh, give me a chance. I'm looking for a home with a privacy fence so I don't see the neighbour's dogs, and obviously someone who can work with me and hopefully one day, I can be good with dogs again. For now, basket muzzle at all times when outside, we're working on ignoring dogs we see. But it's a work in progress. There are dogs everywhere you look in the cities, which is why I'm hoping for the country life. I'm not a city dog. I need someone to love again, I want to play fetch, run around and just be loved for who I truly am. If you think you'd like to know more about me, get in touch with Sophie via this ad or call at (514) 804-5052. Make sure to leave a detailed message if you get the VM.

I have been named Chance by the wonderful people of Kuwait who rescued me from the desert streets. I'm about a year so I still have a long life ahead of me. I was paralyzed in the back, from what turned out to be a bullet in my spine. This injury also caused me to not be able to control my urinating, so intensive surgery was performed in order to save my life and give me a chance at life. Obviously, I did not regain the use of my back legs, but come equipped with a wheelchair. I was born male, but due to the extensive urethrostomy, I am now labelled on records as being female. So you get to decide if I'm a boy or a girl. Basically I have no reproductive organs whatsoever. More details will be given to potential adopters. I am wonderful with everyone and everything. Dogs, cats, kids, men, women and therefore could be great in any family setting. However, and this is a Big however, my wheelchair is not a small contraption, so to use it in the house, I'll need to live in a large enough area to get around. Of course, no stairs for me other than a few steps here and there. I do get around on my two front legs, but once in my chair, life opens up! I can run and zoom around like I never lost my legs. to know me is to love me. I can play with my toys just like any other dog and shower my humans with lots of affection. I am no longer totally incontinent as the hospital in Kuwait did an amazing job at repairing me but I do sometimes drip a bit of urine. All I'm hoping for now, is to have those legs amputated as they are totally useless and really get in my way. Sophie's Dog Adoption is raising funds for me as we speak so I can have that done asap. If you think an oddball like me is the companion for you, I'll make you see the positive side of this beautiful world!

Hi there! My name is Lennox. I'm a 2 yr old male Husky. I weigh 60 lbs. I'm in excellent health and tested negative for heart-worm. I come to you all the way from Serbia. There is a wonderful dog rescue in Kosovo that helps the thousands of stray dogs in Serbia find great homes all over the world. I'm adjusting to indoor life rather well. I never had a home before so it's really nice to finally have a warm cozy bed and regular meals. My foster home is teaching me the ropes and reports that I'm eager to please and very bright. I'm used to other dogs but have not been tested with cats or children. I'm an active pooch who loves to run and play. I'm learning how to walk nicely on a leash. That is all new to me. My ideal human(s) should be familiar with my breed and understand that I require a lot of daily exercise, mental stimulation and structure. The Husky is not an ideal apartment dog so please keep that in mind. If you think you're the one(s) for me and you are ready to commit to my well-being and training for the rest of my life, then please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form asap!

Hi there! my name is Mila. I'm a super duper pooch but I do have an issue with other dogs. I become very reactive whenever I'm out on walks and see other dogs. I'm quite vocal so I draw attention to myself. This is my only issue. Other than that, I'm a fantastic girl. I'm very sweet and loving as well as playful and bright. I would do well in a home where the human(s) are active and have a good understanding of canine behaviour. Structure and steady training will help me in becoming less reactive. It's not my fault I was never socialized around other dogs when I was a puppy. I am eager to please however so there is hope for me. I have a high prey drive so no small pets for me please including cats or small dogs. I'm a German Shepard mix. 2 years old and I weigh about 65 lbs. If you think you have what it takes to provide me with what I need and you're ready to commit to me for the long haul, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com
