Dogs available for adoption
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 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 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 email@example.com 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.

Hi there! My name is Giacomo. I'm a 7 month old Shepard/Husky mix with stunning eyes and a terrific personality. I'm a big boy weighing already 70 lbs but I'm long-legged and lean. I'm a very active young fellow who loves to play and run. I'm extremely bright, eager to please and very friendly. I was surrendered at a shelter by my previous owners who claimed I was not a good match with the resident cat. Well, I'm being very respectful of the cat in my foster home. I'm getting the structure and exercise I need there as well as an excellent education. I'm quite good with other dogs. Small children are not a good idea for me because I'm a big bouncy pooch. I know my basic commands. My leash walking is improving very nicely and I'm learning to associate my crate with a nice place to go relax. My resource guarding is mild and being worked on. I came to SDA with very little education training-wise but my foster home, who is very dog-savvy, reports that I'm a great pupil. Exercising me every day is crucial for a young lad like me so my ideal human(s) will need to be active. A tired dog is a happy dog...plus, I learn so much better when my needs are met. If you think I'm the one for you, please send Sophie an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her all about yourself.

Hello everyone! My name is Vodka. I'm a 5 year old Siberian Husky female. I'm in excellent health and weigh 63 lbs. I'm a very sweet girl with a beautiful face. I have one blue eye and one brown eye. My owners had to surrender me to their local shelter because my human dad was very ill. They had me since I was a puppy and always took excellent care of me. I know my basic commands in French and get along with cats and dogs. I'm great on leash and respond well to commands. I don't like having my collar grabbed or being restrained (like being hugged tight). I'm crate-trained, can stay home alone, not much of a barker and very loyal to my humans. I'm extremely bright and eager to please. My ideal home would be where there is a good amount of structure and consistence from everyone in the home. My foster home reports that I'm "smart like a service dog, obedient, calm, responsive, playful, friendly". If you're looking for a loving and devoted companion and you don't mind that I require regular brushing. If you know my breed well and feel you can meet my physical and psychological needs, please write to email@example.com and tell Sophie all about you.

Hi everybody! My name is Wally-Ann. i'm a 2 year old Shepherd female mix. I'm great with other dogs, cats and kids. I'm a big girl at around 70 lbs but very long and lean. I'm a high energy pooch so an active human is a must for me. My foster home takes me jogging and I absolutely love it. We can pass by other dogs, bikes, skateboards etc...and I have no reaction. I'm very obedient, bright and eager to please. My foster home reports that I'm a real quick learner too. I'm super loving and love getting belly rubs. I'm not a fan of being crated and did show some separation anxiety in my former home. That was part of the reason why I was surrendered to my local shelter. I was not getting much exercise as my family had no time for me. Now that my needs are being met: plenty of daily exercise, structure and consistency, I'm doing very well. My ideal forever home will need to continue to provide me with that kind of environment in order to remain a balanced and fulfilled pooch. If you think I'm the perfect pooch for you, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell Sophie all about yourself.
