Dogs available for adoption
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 Jude. I'm a 2 year old, 55 lb German Shepard female and my story is an all-too-common one sadly. I was acquired by my humans when I was just a 2 month old puppy. Here we are 1 little over a year later and I'm already looking for a new home. My humans got divorced you see and neither of them would take me. Luckily for us dogs, we live in the moment. I'm staying with a wonderful foster dad until the ideal forever home for me is found. I'm a very bright girl and super loving. I'm also very active so no couch potatoes for me please! True to my breed, I am very loyal, eager to please, high energy and alert. I know some basic obedience but my leash walking skills need work. My previous humans were walking me with a prong collar. That's far from being an ideal collar to wear every day. My foster dad is now showing me how to walk with a Halti and Martingale collar. I'll need an experienced human since I have some issues with resource guarding around other dogs. I should be the only pet in the home and get a lot of daily exercise, structure as well as mental stimulation. If you are familiar with my breed and are ready to commit to me for life, please hurry on over to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form.

Hi everybody, Our names are Kiley and Miley. We are mother and sister. Mom is Kiley and 4 years old. I'm Miley, the daughter, and I'm 3 years old. We lost our beloved human mom recently and now, our beloved human dad is very ill and can no longer take care of us. We're looking for a new forever home for each of us. We're actually better behaved when apart so don't feel bad for splitting us up. We look almost identical. We're also very similar behaviour-wise. I'm very happy-go-lucky and love to cuddle and give kisses. My mom Kiley is also the same way but a tad less outgoing. We're used to living in a peaceful and quiet home. We do not like children. They make us nervous. We do seem to like other dogs although we don't really know much about proper social etiquette. We get very excited at first when we see or meet other dogs. We're both used to pee-pee pads. We do enjoy a nice walk every day and we like to play with our toys. We are not used to being left home alone so we need work with that. Our foster homes are getting us used to that bit by bit every day. So, if you feel that me or my mom would make an ideal companion for you and you're ready to commit to being our forever human(s), please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com. Make sure to mention which one of us you're interested in. Adoption fee is $525.00 per dog and includes full vetting.

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
