Dogs available for adoption
Hello everybody! My name is Cayenne. I'm a 4 yr old Pit Bull in excellent health. My family had to make the very difficult of re-homing me due to the fact that the family has grown a lot since they first got me and they don't have enough time to devote to me like they used to. They just want what's best for me. Here is what my human "mom" has to say about me... "Cayenne would best be in a home that has experience with the breed. She's a very happy-go-lucky, high energy girl. Loves outdoors and her long walks. Does pull a little while walking. Very treat motivated. Knows her basic commands. Crate trained. She has lived with other dogs in the past. Slow introduction is best. She can be timid and protective when meeting new people. Is a chewer. Favourite toy is her ball. Loves to play fetch. Could go on for hours. Very agile. Loves her cuddle time. Is allowed her on the couch and bed. Grooming baths are fine but clipping nails make her nervous. No cats or young children." If you think you're the ideal human(s) for me and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to wwww.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption application asap!

Hi everyone! my name is Kira. I'm an 8 year old American Bulldog mix and I weigh 60 lbs. I'm in excellent health other than being prone to ear infections if given low quality food. I was rescued by a dog lover a few months ago when she visited a shelter in Orlando, Florida. She brought me home here in Montreal and worked with me quite a lot and made me see just how nice it is to be loved and have a warm and cozy home. I'm a very sweet and loving girl with people. I am dog selective however. I'm crate-trained and can stay home alone with no worries. I'm not a vocal or destructive dog at all. I love my crate and often go nap in it. You don't even need to close the door. I am not a City dog however. All the noises and hustle and bustle of City life make me nervous. my ideal home should be in a very quiet area or in a peaceful place in the Country. Here is what my rescuer has to say about me.... "This is Kira, she was rescued last November along with another dog who was to be euthanized in a high kill shelter in Florida. When we first met Kira, she had shut down, she had no interest in eating or interacting with people, her spirit was broken, who could blame her after being with the same family for 7 years and then abandoned at the shelter. She was so skinny when we first saw her and clearly she had several litters in her life. How could we leave her there? Once home with us she started to open up and show us her true personality. She had no social skills but because of her wanting to please Kira learned the basics such as sitting, waiting, giving her paw, not going on sofas or beds with out being invited, learned how to play, catch the ball, just learnt that she can use her paws to dig in the snow to find her ball, kisses and she now get along with one of my dogs! Kira just soaks in all the smells during a walk, living the life of dog is something she has grown to love. Kira is in absolute heaven when she can snuggle with you or just hang out, you can see how much she appreciates having home, you see it in her eyes when she looks at you. Currently Kira lives with 2 dog savvy cats and 2 other dogs but due to her insecurities we never leave them alone, our little dog doesn't trust her and Kira is not a fan of hers either. Because of this, for Kira's safety she should be the only pet in the home and no kids under 16. Kira needs a home with a tall fenced in back yard and someone who clearly understands that Kira shouldn't be put in a situation that she can't handle. We absolutely love her but she deserves to be in a home where she is the queen and not having to share her time with her family."

Hello there! My name is Lulu. I'm a 10 year old mixed breed looking for a wonderful home to live out my golden years. My owners don' t have the time nor the finances to take proper care of me. They asked Sophie to try and find me a loving home where I will get the attention I deserve. They feel bad that I'm home all alone for 12 hours a day. They feel that my boredom makes me lonely and depressed. I'm a very gentle, docile and sweet old gal. I'm low energy but I love going for walks every day. I walk well with my anti-pull harness. I get excited when I see cats or squirrels outside but I'm respectful of cats when inside. As for dogs, I'm selective. I was never socialized with other dogs. I growl when I have to deal with a dog that rubs me the wrong way. Since I've always been the only dog in my home, a home with no other dogs would be best for me. I could possibly get along well with a docile dog however. I don't start trouble. I just don't like to have my personal invaded by a bouncy or super excited dog. I've never lived with small children but gentle children over 10 and able to read a dog's body language would be fine. I'm naturally submissive and easy-going. I'm wonderful with people. I'm friendly, engaging and mellow. I seem to have some arthritis setting in but with excellent nutrition, supplements and regular exercise, I should feel like a young dog again in no time. I just started taking anti-inflammatory medication. My ideal home should have a fenced-in yard and not a lot of stairs for me to have to deal with. Keep in mind that you may need to install a ramp for me eventually as I age. So, if you think you're the perfect person to offer me that wonderful retirement I deserve and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption request form. There is no adoption fee required for me but the screening will be done the same as for any dog.

Hi there! My name is Mila. I'm a loving, intelligent companion looking for my forever home. I am wonderful around people and very well trained and attentive, but I have problems with other animals. I am not socialized with other dogs, so I can become very reactive whenever I'm out on walks and see other dogs. I can be quite vocal, so I draw attention to myself. It's not aggression, just reactivity due to lack of proper socializing. My ideal home should be in the Country. That's where I am at my happiest. I also have high prey drive, so I like to chase animals like cats, squirrels, and birds. 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 to other dogs. It's not my fault I was never socialized around other dogs when I was a puppy. I am very eager to please however so there is hope for me. I would be fine in a home with gentle and dog-savvy children over the age of 10. I'm a German Shepard mix, 4 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 asap
