Dogs available for adoption
Hi everyone! My name is Asker. I'm a 2 yr old Dachshund that was found as a stray, brought to a local shelter and never claimed. That's how I ended up with SDA since I was not at all happy at the shelter. I'm insecure and fearful of new people. I'll need a very calm, confident and experienced leader to help me become a balanced and fulfilled little girl. I don't feel comfortable being approached or feeling cornered. It's important to let me come to you. My curiosity will get the better of me once I see that you're not a threat to me. I'm as cute as a button, active and become very engaging and loving once you earn my trust. I love to go exploring on walks. I have a great nose so you can be sure that I'll find any food around in a heartbeat. I do love to eat so using food as motivation to train me is helpful. Playing "find the hidden treat" is a great way to interact with me. No kids for me please. I need a calm and peaceful home. I'm fine with other dogs. Not sure about cats but a dog savvy cat would most likely be fine for me. If you think you're the ideal human for me, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption request form asap.

Hi there! My name is Biscotti. I'm a 4 yr old female Boxer in excellent health. I'm a very sweet and loving girl but because I'm no longer getting along with the other dog in my home, my owners asked Sophie to take me under her rescue and help me find my ideal home. My issues with other dogs are easily correctable with the right training. A calm and confident leader is what I require as well as daily exercise, mental stimulation, structure and stability. I'm very bright and eager to please. With the proper guidance, I will learn to be a balanced and respectful pooch towards other dogs. I just need to see that I'm not the boss...you are. I did really well with Sophie's evaluation. In fact, she found me absolutely charming and easy to train. It's all a question of leadership. If you know and love my breed and you're ready to become my forever human(s), please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form.

Hello everybody! My name is Duster. I'm an 8 yr old Boxer. I was adopted by a family just 8 months ago after my previous owners decided to re-home me. These folks passed themselves off as a rescue and, according to my most recent family, did not give them an accurate description of myself. I was not comfortable living with 3 young kids. I'm getting up there in age so a calm and structured environment with regular exercise and mental stimulation is ideal for me. I'm good with dogs, not tested with cats. Kids over the age of 10 and well educated about dogs would be okay for me. I'm a real sweetheart. Very loving and engaging as well as eager to please. I would love to find myself a forever home where my humans will be committed to providing me with the confident leadership and care I require in order to be my best self. I still have a whole lot of love to give and many happy days ahead of me. If you think you and I would be a great match, please download the adoption request form located on www.sophiesdogadoption.com.

Hi there everybody! I'm Monkey, I'm a Bulldog/Boxer/Lab AKA a Heinz 57 male who was born the runt of the litter in my old home in April 2016. All the puppies were quickly sold away to people but I remained because my back legs were lame and nobody wanted me. That's how I ended up with SDA. I saw Sophie's vets and was sent to the DMV for x-rays which showed that I have a significant scoliosis as well as 2 or 3 fused vertebrae. The neurologist explained that surgery is not an option however. Physiotherapy and regular follow-ups are what's best for me at this point. Thanks to excellent nutrition, the loving care of my foster home and sharing my space with balanced dogs, cats and kids...I am a pretty well rounded puppy despite my health issue. I'm able to get around just fine but I hop like a bunny when I run (see video). I cannot control my bowels due to my compressed spine but I have no issues with urinating. I am house-trained when it comes to pee-pee time. Here is what my foster home had to say about me: "He's very affectionate and playful. He's used to big and small dogs, cats and love the kids. He's very smart! He learns quickly. He eats in his crate and sits and waits until we give him the OK command. He settles very well in his crate both at night and during the day" Monkey will probably not weigh more than 20 lbs once fully grown. His future human(s) should have good puppy training experience. If you think Monkey is the ideal pup for you despite his special needs, please fill out the adoption form located on our web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com

Hello there everyone! My name is Pablo 2. I'm a one year old American Bulldog. I was acquired in France by my previous owners when I was just a little puppy. They have since moved to Montreal and find that I'm too much to handle now since they don't have enough time for me. I'm in great shape, good with small dogs and cats and would be fine with kids 10 and up at this time but only until I learn good manners. I'm a bouncy and energetic teenager right now so I must get plenty of daily exercise as well as structure and consistency to go along with my training. I'm very bright and eager to please. I'm perfectly house-trained, crate trained, not a barker at all and like a typical Bulldog, I love to love. I have a lot of good qualities going for me so if you're willing to work on me and you're ready to commit to being my forever human, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and download the adoption form.

Hi, my name is Pink. Iâm a young and petite Dogo Argentino mix female under two years of age. I was recently spayed and my shots are up to date. Iâm very smart and I love to cuddle most of all with my favourite person. Iâm also insecure because I was poorly socialized all of my life. I mainly lived in a cage and saw little of the world until Sophieâs Dog Adoption came and pulled me from the city pound. Iâm intimidated by men and I will bark and growl out of fear but once I get to be properly introduced, Iâm one big, loving goofball and I beg for belly rubs and head scratches. The world is intimidating to me, as I saw none of it when I was a pup, but Iâm curious and with a loving and guiding hand beside me, Iâm a fast learner. Iâm potty-trained now but I can still have accidents if you donât pay attention to my potty requests. I love to play with dogs but I play rough. I donât mean to be rough, itâs just that Iâm so happy to play that I get overly excited. With proper and frequent socializing, Iâll soon learn dog etiquette and adapt my play-mode. Inside the house, Iâm quiet and I listen very well. Outside, I pull on the leash a bit, but my foster mom says that Iâm improving daily. I really need someone to call my own and be loyal and devoted to forever. If I get that, I will blossom into the magnificent dog Iâm meant to be. If you're ready to become my forever human(s), please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form asap.

Hello there people! My name is Romeo V. I'll be turning 3 in March 2017. I'm a Chihuahua. i'm very loving but not a fan of being handled too much. I'll settle down on your lap but I don't liked being picked up or poked at. I'm crate-trained, house-trained, can be skittish with new people, I'm okay with cats and dogs. I'd be okay with calm kids. I can stay home alone, not a big barker. Like all dogs, I require a loving home with structure, stability and both mental and physical stimulation. As cute and little as I am, I need for you to see me as a real dog in need of your confident leadership, not a scared little baby. If you think you've got what it takes to become my one and only, please fill out the adoption request form on www.sophiesdogadoption.com
