Dogs available for adoption
Hi there! my name is Hazel. I'm a 5 year old female Beagle in need of a new home due to the fact that my previous human suddenly lost her home and job. I'm used to living with another dog and cat but I'm skittish around small kids or loud people. I like gentle folks and a nice and peaceful environment. I'm feeling very anxious since I lost my home so I'm quite vocal these days. If you know Beagles, you know how much we like to howl, sniff everywhere and dig. Needless to say that my ideal human(s) should be familiar with my breed and needs. Regular physical and mental stimulation are a must for me. I'm very under-exercised and under stimulated right now. I'm very sweet and engaging as well as eager to please so in the right home with the right leadership and training, I will flourish. I'm pee-pee pad trained only at this time. I was never walked either so I'm just now learning how to do that. I am crate-trained so that will be a big help with my house-training. A big girl like me should not be expected to use pee-pee pads. I have no problem going potty outside. If you're familiar with the Beagle and you've got good dog training experience, then I just might be the ideal pooch for you.

Hello there! My name is Lucy. I'm 2 yrs old and weigh about 55 lbs. I was originally "rescued" by my current owner when I was about 4 months old. I lived in a crate 12-14 hours a day and was never socialized. I was quite neglected. Since then, I've been given a whole lot of care and love but my human finds me too much of a challenge for her because, despite all of her efforts, I'm still a very anxious girl especially around strangers. She decided to contact SDA to help find me a more suitable home. Sophie and her canine expert friend Raymond came by to evaluate me and they deemed that I have great potential. I just need the right human to continue working on my anxiety and provide me with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. A calm, confident leader with a good understanding of canine behaviour is what I am seeking. I'm good with the 3 dogs in my home but I'm not always so great with unknown dogs. I lack social skills in that area. I am full of wonderful qualities. Typical to my breed, I am extremely loving with my humans, love to play, enjoy going on walks and cuddling. I've received my basic obedience training so I don't need any extra work in that area. If you think you're the ideal human for me and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com 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

Hi everyone! My name is Ramona. I'm currently 11 months old and weigh 37 lbs. I was brought back to Canada by a nice lady while on vacation in the Dominican Republic when I was just a tiny puppy as a gift for a senior family member. She thought I was a Chihuahua. Little did she know that I would grow to be much larger than a Chihuahua. They did their best with me as they loved me very much but it became evident to them that I was more than they could handle so they asked Sophie for help in finding me a more suitable forever home. I'm now a teenage pup who is possessive and protective of my crate, perfect in the house however. I need to learn how to walk properly on leash as well as stop my resource guarding. With regular daily exercise, plenty of structure and consistency with my training, I'll be a wonderful pooch in no time. I'm super smart and very eager to please. I have the most adorable perky ears and I'm very sweet and engaging. I'm okay with other dogs and cats but kids would be all new to me. Seeing as I have resource guarding issues, it would wise to take precautions around children. If you think I'm the girl for you and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption form located under "forms" asap! That is always the first step with SDA's adoption procedure.
