Dogs available for adoption
Hello everybody! My name is Cayenne. I'm a 4 yr old Pit Bull in excellent health. My family had to make the very difficult of re-homing me due to the fact that the family has grown a lot since they first got me and they don't have enough time to devote to me like they used to. They just want what's best for me. Here is what my human "mom" has to say about me... "Cayenne would best be in a home that has experience with the breed. She's a very happy-go-lucky, high energy girl. Loves outdoors and her long walks. Does pull a little while walking. Very treat motivated. Knows her basic commands. Crate trained. She has lived with other dogs in the past. Slow introduction is best. She can be timid and protective when meeting new people. Is a chewer. Favourite toy is her ball. Loves to play fetch. Could go on for hours. Very agile. Loves her cuddle time. Is allowed her on the couch and bed. Grooming baths are fine but clipping nails make her nervous. No cats or young children." If you think you're the ideal human(s) for me and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to wwww.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption application asap!

Hi there everybody! My name is Dexter II. I'm a 6 year old Yellow Labrador Retriever and I currently weigh 100 lbs. I'm a good 15 to 20 lbs overweight so I've got some joint pain because of that. Once I start to lose weight however, I should feel better. Giving me Glucosamine and exercising me properly will also help me get there. My family has grown a lot and my humans just don't have the time for me like they used to. They want me to find a new loving home where I will get all the attention and care I need. I'm an absolutely wonderful dog. I'm very well trained. I did 3 levels of training when I was younger. I walk well on leash, I know all my basic commands, I can stay home alone without any issues and I'm very loyal to my people. Although I was raised with several children, I would not be an ideal candidate for small children due to my size. I do well with other dogs at the dog park but not when they come onto my territory. I love meeting new people. I'm super friendly and engaging. My only small issue is when I grab a Kleenex or a sock for example. I won't let it go unless you exchange it with me for something more interesting. As far as cats are concerned, I was never allowed any contact with the ones in my previous home but I have been chasing and trying to nip at the cats in my foster home. So, if you think I sound like the perfect 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 application form asap!

Diegito is a sweet little boy currently 8.5 months old and he weighs 11 kilos. He just wants a home to call his own, where he can play, be given boundaries and to be loved. You see he recently arrived in Montreal from Lebanon where there was no family available to help him due to so many dogs living on the streets. Now he finds himself across the world in a new country full of new things to discover. Sophie arranged for him to come to our home so that we could help him adjust while waiting for his forever home to be found. We are so proud of Diegito, itâs only been a few days and he has almost mastered being house trained. He now tries to tell us when he needs to go out to do his business!!! He learned how to sit so quickly and is now starting to understand what stay means. He understands up or down form the sofa or bed but being a âteenagerâ in dog years he can challenge us at times . Our dogs enjoy playing with him and Diegito ignores the cats. He does well in the dog park too. Understandably due to all the newness his anxiety was up and he displayed this by nipping at our pant legs, hands and trying to jump up on us. He also has a fear of new people and may nip at them. Who can blame him for this, no one had a chance to teach him manners yet. He is responding well with the little training that we have given him so far. Diegito seems to be part Corgi and displays the characters as such. He is full of life, smart, has energy but can be the biggest snuggle bug too. Whoever is the lucky one to have Diegito part of their family for the next 14+yrs is guaranteed to have him fill their life with many fun memories. If you think Diegito is the dog for you and you're ready to commit to his well-being for the rest of his life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption application form asap!

Eloy is a young Border Collie male mix that was shot in the spine when he was a stray dog in Kuwait. Sadly, this sort of horrible thing is common practice over there. Eloy is making great progress with his physio. He's slowly gaining strength in his back legs. He's arrived to Montreal from Kuwait to begin his new life here and hopefully find a great forever home. Eloy is about 18 months old. He comes with his wheelchair. Eloy was admitted to IVH after a gunshot wound to the back which caused spinal damage. He had spinal surgery on the 2nd of December 2018 after which he is now undergoing rehabilitation sessions to try and improve his equilibrium and give him the best amount of autonomy as possible. At the moment there is an equilibrium deficit and motor ataxia in the hind legs. He is improving nicely. He has total control of defecation but with regards to urination he needs helps by gently pressing on the bladder in order to urinate. His ideal home would be one with a yard and possibly a pool and treadmill to help with his mobility. Eloy is not comfortable with other animals, children or certain men he finds intimidating. He's a very sweet pooch who bonds quickly with his human once trust is earned but he is very insecure and anxious by nature. Living in a "normal" home is all new to him. He lived at the vet hospital until his arrival here. Here is what Sophie wrote for him.... "My name is Eloy. I'm a 2 year old Border Collie mix and I'm a very deserving dog. My story is sad, but I have a happy future ahead of me. All I need is that one home I can call mine. I am what Sophie calls, a Kuwaiti refugee. If I had not fled to Canada, my life would be miserable forever. Life is not easy for dogs like me in the Middle East. Our lives are in danger all the time â it is a constant battle just to make it through one more day in this crazy part of the world. I am one of the hundreds of dogs, just thrown out on the streets or even born there. In my first year I struggled, but then someone thought it would be fun to shoot me and leave me there. So I sustained an injury to my spine, the bullet caused paralysis in both my back legs. One little thing; due to my injury, I have very little control of my bladder, so boy diapers are a must for now. Thankfully, some good people rescued me, brought me to the vet where I was operated and did 3 months of physio. I scoot around without my wheels, but when I'm in that wheelchair, I'm ready to go go go! All that to say I'm looking for that one person to love me. I need work, patience and unconditional love. I will give it back to you for the rest of my life. Do you have a nice park near you and a fenced in yard where we can take gentle walks together? That would be ideal for me!" All the details you might need can be obtained by calling Sophie directly at (514) 804- 5052. Make sure to leave a detailed message please.

Hi everyone! my name is Kira. I'm an 8 year old American Bulldog mix and I weigh 60 lbs. I'm in excellent health other than being prone to ear infections if given low quality food. I was rescued by a dog lover a few months ago when she visited a shelter in Orlando, Florida. She brought me home here in Montreal and worked with me quite a lot and made me see just how nice it is to be loved and have a warm and cozy home. I'm a very sweet and loving girl with people. I am dog selective however. I'm crate-trained and can stay home alone with no worries. I'm not a vocal or destructive dog at all. I love my crate and often go nap in it. You don't even need to close the door. I am not a City dog however. All the noises and hustle and bustle of City life make me nervous. my ideal home should be in a very quiet area or in a peaceful place in the Country. Here is what my rescuer has to say about me.... "This is Kira, she was rescued last November along with another dog who was to be euthanized in a high kill shelter in Florida. When we first met Kira, she had shut down, she had no interest in eating or interacting with people, her spirit was broken, who could blame her after being with the same family for 7 years and then abandoned at the shelter. She was so skinny when we first saw her and clearly she had several litters in her life. How could we leave her there? Once home with us she started to open up and show us her true personality. She had no social skills but because of her wanting to please Kira learned the basics such as sitting, waiting, giving her paw, not going on sofas or beds with out being invited, learned how to play, catch the ball, just learnt that she can use her paws to dig in the snow to find her ball, kisses and she now get along with one of my dogs! Kira just soaks in all the smells during a walk, living the life of dog is something she has grown to love. Kira is in absolute heaven when she can snuggle with you or just hang out, you can see how much she appreciates having home, you see it in her eyes when she looks at you. Currently Kira lives with 2 dog savvy cats and 2 other dogs but due to her insecurities we never leave them alone, our little dog doesn't trust her and Kira is not a fan of hers either. Because of this, for Kira's safety she should be the only pet in the home and no kids under 16. Kira needs a home with a tall fenced in back yard and someone who clearly understands that Kira shouldn't be put in a situation that she can't handle. We absolutely love her but she deserves to be in a home where she is the queen and not having to share her time with her family." If you think I'm the dog for you and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com ASAP to download the adoption request form.

Hello there! My name is Lulu. I'm a 10 year old mixed breed looking for a wonderful home to live out my golden years. My owners don' t have the time nor the finances to take proper care of me. They asked Sophie to try and find me a loving home where I will get the attention I deserve. They feel bad that I'm home all alone for 12 hours a day. They feel that my boredom makes me lonely and depressed. I'm a very gentle, docile and sweet old gal. I'm low energy but I love going for walks every day. I walk well with my anti-pull harness. I get excited when I see cats or squirrels outside but I'm respectful of cats when inside. As for dogs, I'm selective. I was never socialized with other dogs. I growl when I have to deal with a dog that rubs me the wrong way. Since I've always been the only dog in my home, a home with no other dogs would be best for me. I could possibly get along well with a docile dog however. I don't start trouble. I just don't like to have my personal invaded by a bouncy or super excited dog. I've never lived with small children but gentle children over 10 and able to read a dog's body language would be fine. I'm naturally submissive and easy-going. I'm wonderful with people. I'm friendly, engaging and mellow. I seem to have some arthritis setting in but with excellent nutrition, supplements and regular exercise, I should feel like a young dog again in no time. I just started taking anti-inflammatory medication. My ideal home should have a fenced-in yard and not a lot of stairs for me to have to deal with. Keep in mind that you may need to install a ramp for me eventually as I age. So, if you think you're the perfect person to offer me that wonderful retirement I deserve and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption request form. There is no adoption fee required for me but the screening will be done the same as for any dog.

Myronas is a 3 1/2 year old mixed breed male (perhaps Border Collie mix). He was thrown from a bridge in Patras, Greece when he was just a puppy along with his siblings. They were all rescued in time and taken into a dog rescue by the good folks over there. Myronas stayed in kennels for almost 2 years, and now he is in a loving foster home in Montreal with kids, other dogs and cats. He is skittish in the beginning but is a great dog once he settles in. He's very calm and quiet but loves to play with other dogs. He can live with kids that are dog-savvy. He walks very well on a leash but you need to use a harness that ties on top of the back so he can't chew the leash. He loves people a lot once he's had the chance to get to know them. Myronas is very fit, active, playful , eager to please and bright. His ideal forever home should be able to provide him with plenty of daily exercise, stability and structure. If you'd like to adopt Myronas and you're ready to commit to his well-being for the rest of his life, please download the adoption application located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com asap!
