Dogs available for adoption
Hi everybody! My name is Dexter and I'm a 7 yr old Maltese/Jack Russell male. I'm a very easy-going and rather independent fellow who is looking for a nice retired couple or person to spend the rest of my life with. I'm low-energy and in great health. I weigh about 20 lbs so I fit nicely next to you on the couch. I like to be near you but won't impose on you to get lots of attention. I'm house-trained of course and know my basic commands. Not a fan of staying home alone or going on long walks. I'm a home-body who enjoys short walks and time in the yard. I need a peaceful home with structure and stability. What I need most is a steady and loving leader to keep me balanced and fulfilled. I was acting pretty neurotic with my previous owner but ever since I left and became one of Sophie's dogs, I have been behaving like a normal dog. I plan on staying that way. If you think you'd be the ideal person(s) for me, please write to Sophie at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her why you feel you are the best fit for me. if she likes what she reads, you will then be asked to fill out the adoption form located on her web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com and screening will follow. Montreal and area.

Hello everyone! My name is Hatchi 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 quite good with cats however. True to my nature, I am protective of my family so you can certainly count on me to keep you and your home safe. 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 would be fine with kids over 10 years of age as long as they are properly educated on understanding my body language, as should be the case for all children who live with dogs. 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.

Hi everybody! My name is Shorty. I'm a Lab/Doxie male who currently weighs 48.6 lbs. I should weigh about 45 lbs so I'm almost at my ideal weight thanks to my foster mom. I'm a really sweet pooch. I get along well with other dogs. I'm well-trained. I'm 10 years old and in good health aside from the extra weight. I was surrendered to SDA due to my owner passing away. I'm doing great in foster care. I still have a few good years left to live. I'm looking for a wonderful new forever home to call my own. Sophie just paid good money to have my teeth done so maintaining my oral health is a MUST please. BRIEF HISTORY: SHORTY âS BIO DATE: 2016.03.15 NAME: Shorty GENDER: male BREED: Labrador/Dachshund mix AGE: 10 BRIEF HISTORY: Owner passed away. Ownerâs son took in both dogs (he came with a female Parson Russel Terrier) but had no time for them since they just had a new baby. OVERALL PERSONALITY: Shorty is a complete sweetheart. Just imagine the personality of the Labrador with the quirkiness of the Dachshund. He is calm in the house but will keep an eye out for any intruder to scare off with his big voice. Inside this stocky body there is an impressionable puppy that loves to cuddle and is in need of guidance. He will cower if you raise your voice. He is friendly with people but not overbearing. He loves to go for walks. Shorty has a sweet and happy disposition, eager to please. ENERGY LEVEL: Mellow HOUSE TRAINED: Yes HOME ALONE: Fine, may bark at first but settles quickly CATS: No KIDS: Respectful older children only HEALTH: Very healthy apart from overweight RESOURCE GUARDING: Guards his toys and food from other dogs but not from humans LEASH: A total pro at leash walking.
