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.

Gidzâs world was turned upside down when he was given up at the age of 11 by his previous owners due to the arrival of a baby. He was shy and nervous at first in his foster home, but heâs now settling in well and coming out of his shell. He is quiet in the house (will bark when people come to the door) and heâs been perfectly clean and non-destructive, even when left alone. Gidz absolutely adores going for walks. He holds his head and tail high, and he prances down the street! He loves his walks! Heâs great on leash too and would be a good companion for someone who likes taking leisurely strolls. Heâs been fine with the dogs and cats in his foster home. He wasnât sure about the cats at first, but he doesnât bother with them if they leave him alone. He can get jealous when the other animals get near his food dish, so heâs fed on the other side of the kitchen, and there is no issue. Heâs just a sweet dog who is looking for the perfect retirement home. Gidz was labelled a Cockachi (Cocker/Chihuahua mix) when originally purchased. He weighs about 35 lbs. If you'd like to give this sweet boy a loving home where he can live out his golden years, please fill out the adoption form located on www.sophiesdogadoption.com

I have been given a new name, Squash, a new lease on life and a chance to find a good home for my golden years ahead. I am an English Bulldog, 9 years old, and quite neglected. I may have had puppies, or not, but definitely not treated like a member of the family. The excuse for dumping me is they don't trust me around the new baby, which I never met as I had been relinquished to living in the garage for the last year. I have a huge cherry eye, a bad leg, food allergies and who knows what else will be discovered. I am looking for a great home, one who will love me despite the maintenance required for our breed, someone who will feed me quality food so I don't itch all the time, and will love me unconditionally. Are you the one for an old silly girl? I'm clean, quiet, calm and happy! No bad habits, and I'm sure I would love kids, but I'd rather live without. If you think you're the ideal human(s) for me, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com.
