Dogs available for adoption
Bandit is an energetic 2 yr old male who loves going for walks and is use to wearing the no pull harness and even enjoys carrying a backpack. Growing up in the Great North he spent a lot of time on the land off leash with his brothers so his call back is great, but he does get anxiety in the car. He loves to meet new dogs when out for a run and even shows them which plants are great to eat. It's dogs on his own turf he is not okay with. Most likely because he feels the need to protect his home and human. Bandit has never been around small children as his anxiety gets high if they are too loud or approach him too quickly. He is not a fan of meeting new people but is willing to take treats if they are calm. Bandit is crate trained, knows his basic commands and is very eager to please. Bandit has never been known to attack any animal when meeting them he is a perfect gentleman with both dogs and cats when it is not in his territory or as long as he isnât having a nap. He is very cuddly and loves to nibble on ears and fingers and would be happy with relaxing at home after a long walk. He weighs around 65 lbs, is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. He was born in October 2016. His ideal home would be where there is a big yard in a quiet area or in the country. He loves to go for walks in the woods. From his foster mom: "He is amazing indoors. very very calm! No accidents and he only barks when someone is at the door. I let him sleep outside of the cage, and there are no problems. He either sleeps on the bed or beside the bed. I leave him in the cage when I leave him alone at home now. As far as walks go, he's still a bit scared of walking along a noisy street. He will pull and try to run away whenever a loud truck passes by, or he hears any loud noises. I take him around the lake three times a day --- once we get into the forest where its calm, all of the pulling goes away." If you think Bandit is the dog for you and you're ready to commit to his well-being for the rest of his life, please download the adoption form located on www.sophiesdogadoption.com.

Hi there! My name is Buddy Hackett. I'm a 7 yr old Shih-Tzu in good health and I weigh 13 lbs. I'm a very sweet and engaging boy good with dogs and docile kids. Not sure about cats but based on my calm and respectable behaviour around other pets, there's a very good chance I'd be just fine with cats. I have never displayed any prey drive or major excitement when I see cats outside. My foster family reports that I'm a very calm and quiet boy. I'm used to sleeping on my little bed on the floor in their bedroom at night. I don't like being away from my peeps during the night so allowing me to sleep there is a good compromise. I'm quiet and sleep all through the night. I'm well-trained and obedient. I can get grumpy sometimes when you ask me to move out of my spot so it's useful to keep a leash on me in order to get me to obey well. I move the moment you pull a bit on the leash. My foster mom has been rewarding my good behaviour with treats and praise so I don't need the leash anymore. I can be quite manipulative however so this little trick is good to know if ever I should try that in my new home. Otherwise, I'm very easy-going and friendly. I'm not a huge fan of being picked up but I like to be near my humans to get affection or play. I have no separation anxiety and do not need to be crated when left home alone. Keeping my teeth nice and clean is a must as is always the case for any dog. My teeth are pretty crooked so you'll want to pay extra attention to my oral health. My ideal human(s) should make sure to provide me with a lot of structure and remain consistent with the house rules so I don't become a spoiled dog used to getting his way. IE: I must ask for permission to be allowed to go on the couch. I must be calm, sit and stay before we head out for a walk or before you feed me. These little things will help set the tone right away and let me know you're the boss of the house, not me! If you think I'm the pooch for you and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption form asap. That is always the first step with SDA's adoption process.

Hi there! my name is Hazel. I'm a 5 year old female Beagle in need of a new home due to the fact that my previous human suddenly lost her home and job. I'm used to living with another dog and cat but I'm skittish around small kids or loud people. I like gentle folks and a nice and peaceful environment. I'm feeling very anxious since I lost my home so I'm quite vocal these days. If you know Beagles, you know how much we like to howl, sniff everywhere and dig. Needless to say that my ideal human(s) should be familiar with my breed and needs. Regular physical and mental stimulation are a must for me. I'm very under-exercised and under stimulated right now. I'm very sweet and engaging as well as eager to please so in the right home with the right leadership and training, I will flourish. I'm pee-pee pad trained only at this time. I was never walked either so I'm just now learning how to do that. I am crate-trained so that will be a big help with my house-training. A big girl like me should not be expected to use pee-pee pads. I have no problem going potty outside. If you're familiar with the Beagle and you've got good dog training experience, then I just might be the ideal pooch for you.

Hi Everybody! My name is Lucky Bear. I'm a 9 year old male Beagle looking for a new forever home due to the fact that my family is moving overseas and, unfortunately, cannot bring me with them. They turned to SDA knowing that Sophie would make sure to find me the very best new home. They had me ever since I was a puppy so they know me extremely well. I'm a really sweet pooch. I'm in good health. I have lived with kids and was well-behaved around them. I can be weary of strange men at first but I warm up quickly once I see I have nothing to fear. I do like to chase cats outside so not sure how I would do with indoor cats. I'm okay with other dogs. I'm house-trained, not crate-trained. My family used to just leave me in the basement with a baby gate whenever they left me home alone. Unlike a typical Beagle, I am not very vocal, nor do I like dig or pick up all kinds of things when out on walks or in the yard. I do have a great nose though and love to explore. I'm pretty active and love to play. My foster home is now teaching me to walk nicely on the leash. I'm a very bright and engaging fellow. I'm also very eager to please. If you think I'm the ideal pooch for you and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com under "forms" and fill out the adoption request form asap. That is always the first step with SDA's adoption procedure.

Hello there! My name is Lucy. I'm 2 yrs old and weigh about 55 lbs. I was originally "rescued" by my current owner when I was about 4 months old. I lived in a crate 12-14 hours a day and was never socialized. I was quite neglected. Since then, I've been given a whole lot of care and love but my human finds me too much of a challenge for her because, despite all of her efforts, I'm still a very anxious girl especially around strangers. She decided to contact SDA to help find me a more suitable home. Sophie and her canine expert friend Raymond came by to evaluate me and they deemed that I have great potential. I just need the right human to continue working on my anxiety and provide me with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. A calm, confident leader with a good understanding of canine behaviour is what I am seeking. I'm good with the 3 dogs in my home but I'm not always so great with unknown dogs. I lack social skills in that area. I am full of wonderful qualities. Typical to my breed, I am extremely loving with my humans, love to play, enjoy going on walks and cuddling. I've received my basic obedience training so I don't need any extra work in that area. If you think you're the ideal human for me and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com asap!

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

Hi everybody! We are Honey and Sugar, two very bonded girls aged around 2 yrs old. We were recently brought to Sophie's Dog Adoption from Lebanon so we could find ourselves a wonderful forever home. Life for us streets dogs in Lebanon is Hell. We get shot at, hit by cars, beaten, poisoned...you name it! There are simply just too many of us to rescue and find homes for so we rely on the help of other rescues around the world to help us find great forever homes. Thanks to a bunch of really dedicated people, this was made possible for us. Since we are so close to one another and bring out the best in each other, we must be adopted as a pair. We're both incredibly sweet, friendly, calm, gentle, used to other dogs, cats and kids. We're also in great health. We've been adjusting well to the good life here in Montreal under the care of our loving foster home. We're house-trained, can stay home alone without needing to be crated and we're really well-behaved. Since we were street dogs back in Lebanon, we never did get any obedience training but we are very eager to please and learn fast. Our foster mom has been teaching us good leash-walking skills and some basic commands. We're doing fantastic! Our ideal human(s) should have decent dog training experience and be able to provide us with regular daily exercise. We're young, active and fit. We love to go for walks and play and then cuddle and nap. If you think we're the loving pair you've been looking for and you are ready to commit to our well-being for the rest of our lives, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form asap. That is always the first step with SDA's adoption process.
