Dogs available for adoption
Hi there! My name is Alvin. I'm only 4 yrs old and already have been abandoned 3 times through no fault of my own. Needless to say, I need for my next home to be my final and forever home. I'm a really great pooch. I'm good with other dogs, used to kids, no idea about cats but I don't have much of a prey drive at all. I'm a Cocker/Pug mix according to my file. I walk very well with a Halti. I have no separation anxiety or resource guarding issues. I do growl at strangers sometimes but once I see there,s nothing to fear, I calm down. I know my basic commands, I'm perfectly house-trained of course and I'm really sweet, engaging and eager to please. I'm not much of a barker at all. If you'd like to become my forever human(s), please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption form.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 there! My name is Biscotti. I'm a 4 yr old female Boxer in excellent health. I'm a very sweet and loving girl but because I'm no longer getting along with the other dog in my home, my owners asked Sophie to take me under her rescue and help me find my ideal home. My issues with other dogs are easily correctable with the right training. A calm and confident leader is what I require as well as daily exercise, mental stimulation, structure and stability. I'm very bright and eager to please. With the proper guidance, I will learn to be a balanced and respectful pooch towards other dogs. I just need to see that I'm not the boss...you are. I did really well with Sophie's evaluation. In fact, she found me absolutely charming and easy to train. It's all a question of leadership. If you know and love my breed and you're ready to become my forever human(s), please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form.

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

Hello there everyone! My name is Pablo 2. I'm a one year old American Bulldog. I was acquired in France by my previous owners when I was just a little puppy. They have since moved to Montreal and find that I'm too much to handle now since they don't have enough time for me. I'm in great shape, good with dogs and cats and would be fine with kids 10 and up at this time but only until I learn good manners. I'm a bouncy and energetic teenager right now so I must get plenty of daily exercise as well as structure and consistency to go along with my training. I'm very bright and eager to please. I'm perfectly house-trained, crate trained, not a barker at all and like a typical Bulldog, I love to love. I have a lot of good qualities going for me so if you're willing to work on me and you're ready to commit to being my forever human, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption form.
