Dogs available for adoption
I have been named Akimo, and in need of a structured and active family/person. I'm a big boy weighing about 80 lbs. I am a Samoyed / Swiss white shepherd mix, and born in 2016. I was raised in a chaotic household, 5 people including kids. Let's just say I wasn't a happy camper. I was a sweet and cute puppy, but with having no structure, I soon became the leader of the pack. I became protective of my surroundings, mostly outdoors, and escalated until I got to be full size. I was dumped at a boarding/training facility (thankfully) where I got training, socialization and evaluated. After 3 months there, I was becoming restless. I had a potential adopter lined up, but he didn't listen to the directives, and my protective side came out. Here's what I am looking for: a single person, active, knowledgeable with my type of breed/characteristics, someone alpha who will show me love, structure and be the leader I need. I can thrive with the right person, but can get worst with the wrong one. I am super friendly, affectionate, smart, obedient, calm but I need you to be the pack leader, not a softie! If you live in a rural environment, and think you would like to give me a chance, I would love to meet you. I am waiting for my soul mate, and I believe it can happen. I am very anxious around new people and can be reactive while on walks. Ideally no kids for me, but rather a dedicated and structured household. Someone who will give me routine, excersize and teach me to have good manners. I am absolutely stunning, but looks should not be the determining factor for you to want me in your life. If you think you and I could become best buddies, let us know by filling out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com...

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

Hi there! My name is Benji Hill. I'm an 8 yr old Maltese mix in good health. I weigh about 17 lbs. My previous owners gave me up because I started marking in the home (and yes, I am neutered). I have not been marking at all in my foster home however and I've been there several days. I'm living with a nice Greyhound there and we get along great. My walking skills need work but I'm a pretty sweet pooch otherwise. I tend to chase after my tail when I get anxious or don't get my way. A structured home with stability and rules as well as regular walks will help me in becoming a calmer pooch. If you think you'd be ideal for me and are 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!

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.

Hi there! My name is Gresa. I'm a Shepard mix female aged about 2-4 yrs old. I weigh about 45 lbs and I'm in excellent health. I will be arriving to Montreal on July 20th all the way from Kosovo. I'm a super sweet, engaging, friendly and easy-going gal with a lot of love to give. I adore everyone I meet and I get along famously with other dogs. There are so may street dogs in Kosovo looking for good homes that the good folks at the Kosovo dog shelter who rescued me work with other rescues from all the world to ensure we all get that chance at the happy life we deserve. I can't wait to start my new life in La Belle Province! Maybe it's with you?

Hi everybody! My name is Gringo. I'm currently in Tunisia but will be arriving in Montreal on July 27th with the woman who rescued me in Tunis in order to find me my perfect forever home. I was found injured from getting shot at with buck-shots in my front leg. Luckily, I was not injured seriously and my surgery was a big success. I can walk and run just fine although I tend to limp a little bit sometimes when I'm very active. I'm only 2 years old so I have a good amount of energy. I weigh about 55 lbs and I'm in excellent health. I'm house-trained and super loving with people. I am not so comfortable with other dogs though, especially males. I don't go looking for trouble but I don't like to b approached by them. A peaceful home where I will be the only animal is ideal for me. I'm very bright, engaging, playful and affectionate. As for my breed, it's hard to say what I am exactly. One thing for sure though is that I'm very handsome, don't you agree? I can't wait to begin my new life in la Belle Province. Maybe it will be with you? If you think I'm the dog for you 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 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 not cats or other small animals. 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! Here is what my foster dad has to say about me..... Lennox est un super husky plein de vie et qui adore les gens. Il est jeune donc aime jouer, trÃ¨s affectueux et adore se faire flatter la bedaine, tranquille Ã lâintÃ©rieur et mÃªme dans les petits espaces. Intelligent, vif dâesprit, il performe bien quand sa routine est respectÃ©e. A lâaise avec les gens, les enfants et aucune agressivitÃ© face aux autres chiens. Nature soumise et enjouÃ©e. On lui a appris Ã jouer, Ã marcher en laisse avec harnais et qqs commandes de base. Câest un husky donc il sâattache et rÃ©pond particuliÃ¨rement mieux Ã 1 maÃ®tre plutÃ´t quâÃ plusieurs. Câest un chien avec bcp dâÃ©nergie et câest dans lâintÃ©rÃªt de tous de bien la dÃ©penser. Il marche et court deux heures par jour facilement donc une famille active et sportive serait un atout. Points Ã travailler : obÃ©issance et focus encore en travail, marche en laisse, les Ã©cureuils et les chats.

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
