Je m’appelle Malika, j’ai 7 ans mais j’ai de l’énergie comme si j’avais 2 ans. Je me cherche malheureusement une nouvelle famille car ma maman a eue un bébé humain et me trouve trop énergétique.

J’adore les ballades, que cela soit en voiture ou en forêt. Je suis la parfaite compagne pour partir en camping ou en road trip!

J’adore chercher les bâtons, les balles et courir après les écureuils, les lievres ou les chats. Donc pas de petits animaux a la maison!

Je connais les commandes de bases : assis, couché, donne la patte, dans ton lit etc.

Je suis très affectueuse et toujours à la recherche de câlins, j’adore avoir de l’attention.

J’ai besoin d’apprendre a ne pas sauter sur les gens que je rencontre, mais c’est par amour!

Je ne jappe jamais mis à part quand je suis très excitée, ou si j’ai peur de quelque chose. Je peux gémir si je suis très excité et quand je m’impatiente. Je peux rester seule car je suis déjà habituée à attendre le retour du boulot de mon maître.

Je m’entends généralement bien avec les autres chiens qui sont dominants et confiants.

Lorsque je suis à la maison, je dors sur mon coussin, je prends des bains de soleil sur le balcon. Je ne fais pas de possession avec ma nourriture ni avec mes os.

Idéalement une personne ou couple actif ou même une famille avec adolescents serait l’idéal pour moi.

Mettez votre demande et il me fera un plaisir de vous rencontrer.


Hi! I’m Bubble and my name suits me!

I’m a bubbly, active, friendly shih-tzu mix and I was rescued from the streets of Lebanon.

After the bug explosion, people have been having a rough time keeping their dogs, and so I was dumped on the streets.

I’m about 4 years old, and obviously before being abandoned, I was a little spoiled.  I like things my way.

So I’m looking for a structured and quiet home, ideally one person.  I can have attitude and will snap if you push. 

However, I’m funny, affectionate and get along with everyone including dogs and cats. But strangers must approach me carefully. I don’t care for fast movements 

If you think I could be the guy for you, get the form and send it in!

Toby 8

My name is Toby #8, and I’m looking for a home through no fault of mine.

I’m a 7 year old Chocolate Lab. My dad passed away and my mom is moving into a home where dogs are not allowed.

I am fully vetted and in good health, despite being overweight at the moment.

I’ve been lacking exercise, as dad used to take me for long walks and even running.

I’m good with dogs but have never lived with cats. I’m well behaved, mellow and easy-going. 

I love car rides and the outdoors, but I also love to cuddle. 

Young or turbulent children are not ideal for me but dog-savvy kids 10 yrs and up would be fine.

If you’re interested in me, please download our adoption form ASAP and send it in.


You like Chihuahuas? I may be the girl for you. Here’s my story, you decide.

My name is Rhône and unfortunately my old Mom passed away two weeks ago and I was left orphaned.

I’m 7 years old but really fat, even obese, at 8.8lbs. You see, Mom never bought me dog food. She’s make a plate for her, and one for me.

I never left her side, went everywhere with her in a bag, and basically she was my world.

She couldn’t take me for walks as she was legally blind and couldn’t go far, but I would love to go walking around your neighborhood.

Due to my eating habits, my teeth are not good, one of my legs is having a hard time, so I’m pretty much looking for someone who will take good care of me. I may eventually require a small wheelchair to get around, but let’s start with me losing weight.

If you think we could become bff’s, fill out an application and send it in. Ideally I’m looking for a very mellow household of maximum 2 people, no kids please!


My name is Willy, and I just arrived from Jordan. You see in my country, dogs are considered pests, not pets!

So after having been rescued from the streets where my brother Dexter and I were living, we were sent to Canada and I ended up with Sophie’s Dog Adoption at the tender age of 8 months, legally allowed to fly!!!

I am in a foster home with dogs of all sizes, a cat and two teenage kids, do I can live pretty much in any kind of home.

If you think I could finish growing up in your home, I’d be super happy and loyal to you for the test of my life.

Send in your application, Sophie is waiting for it!

Rocky B4

Another Rocky from the streets of Beirut?  That’s me! I’m known as Rocky B4, I’m about a year old and my mix is a guess. 

I’m the size of a lab, yellow/red in color, and about 60 lbs.

So far I’ve been very nice, good with other dogs, getting used to the crate, and not afraid of anything.

I have not been tested with cats, but I would be good with dog-savvy kids. I’m a little bouncy so ideally over 8 years old so I don’t knock them over.

I am eager to please and am learning rules pretty quickly.

If you think I could make your family a great companion, send in your application to

Rocky B3

I’m another Rocky from Beirut, hence Rocky B3.

I’m a mix, your guess is as good as mine, and about 2 years old. I was rescued from the streets, but it’s obvious to my rescuers that I once lived in a home.

I’m very mellow, good with other dogs, could learn to live with cats and definitely good with people of all ages.

I will need some adjustments but having been here only a couple of days, I’ve shown that I’m very adaptable.

If you want to give me a chance at a good life with you, download the form and send it back in. I will become a loyal friend.


My name is Finn, I’m a 2 year old pointer, and I was rescued from Armenia.

I had some trauma when I was around 1yr old which led to my blindness. This took me for a loop and it took some time to adjust but I am as good as ever. 

My amazing rescuer made sure I received the care I needed by having a vet give me a physical where I was vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

Her love for me made her make arrangements so I could leave  the boarding facility, and was sent to Montreal for a chance at the best life ever.

It’s true, I am now blind in both eyes, however, I do not let this get me down. At my foster’s home I have mapped out their home and know where the steps are to go up and down, where the water is, my bed and where my buddy Lucas’s room is situated. Sometimes he closes the door so when I head to his room I bump into it. 

No worries, because I have a hard head.

I really enjoy walking and even trotting along, so if you enjoy running I would make the perfect jogging partner.  I won’t complain and I will happily let you decide where you would like to run. 

I am living with a couple of other dogs right now and am fine to be part of their pack but it’s humans I love to hang with.

Food is what drives me to counter surf so if you are not keeping an eye on your plate of food, my nose will lead me right to it, and hey, finders keepers, right?

I also enjoy the dog park where I have room to wander, explore and smell new things. There are some other nice dogs at the park and I enjoy it very much when their owners pet me. If dogs try and fight, I find it’s best just to wander away from all that drama…

 What’s fun is when my foster parents call me from far away, hearing their voice I follow the sound right up to them and prance through their legs. It’s a game we like to play..

To be honest, I do whine when wanting food, this is something I really need to work on. 

Being an independent guy , I like to wander in the back yard and even go through a fence to get to the neighbours back yard.

Other than being nearly perfect, I will bark at new noises. I have been blessed with a solid bark so I will either need to be in a home with great neighbours who love dogs or in a detached home.

Would you like a companion that is somewhat low key and doesn’t make too many demands? I would love to meet you. Please see me for what a beautiful character I am and not underestimate the amazing companion I can be. I would also be great with kids.


You can see some videos of me on instagram, petra_dog_adoption If interested in having an adoption trial with me please email, and ask for an application form. 


Hello folks, I’m Axel the 7 month old Great Dane.

I’m already weighing in at about 100 lbs, so I’m expected to be a BIG boy.

I was unfortunately given up as I have become strong and my dad could no longer walk me.

Other than needing to learn to walk on leash, I am great. Maybe a bit big for young kids, but no malice at all.

Because of my size and young age, I have not yet been neutered so Sophie will be super careful as I should ideally get neutered once fully grown and developed.

That means there could be some marking issues unless you monitor and train me accordingly.

I want to find the ONE family that will be ready to deal with me in all aspects, for the rest of my life.

If you have what it takes, download and return the application form.

I will make the best pal ever!


Hi Canada, I just arrived from Beirut and love it here!

I once had a family, but the economy being so bad in Lebanon, my family just left me on the streets to fend for myself.

But you see, I’m a white fluff ball (possibly some poodle in my family) and I’m not super young. Probably close to 9 years old, but very healthy!

So the nice ladies from the shelter picked me up and offered me a chance to fly here for a forever home!

I’m super sweet, but afraid of strangers. Before you can pet me and touch me, it will take some time. I need to be able to trust you and it doesn’t come easy for me.

No picking me up either, so you’ll need to keep a leash on me for a while.

I just want to be loved unconditionally, groomed regularly (with a muzzle) and enjoy the rest of my life with you.

So please, give me that opportunity by downloading the application and sending it in. 

Grace A

I’ve been named Grace by my rescuers in Armenia.

I’m a petite dog, about 25 lbs and of unknown mix. I’m about 1 year old and was rescued from the streets after some kids gouged my eye out with a stick.

My wonderful rescuers decided on had a better chance at finding a loving home in Canada, so here I am.

I have no issues with getting around, being playful, active, curious and certainly affectionate.

If you’d like to be the one to give me the warmth of a home, send in your application form.

June Boy

I’ve been named June as I was rescued from the streets of Lebanon in June of last year.

I’m a mix, possibly Norwich Terrier and/or Yorkshire terrier and probably about 7 years old.

I’m a very sweet boy, quiet, cuddly, clean, however I’m deaf. So getting my attention is with signs.

I’m looking for a home who will give me the best years of my life. I really like everybody including kids, just not crazy about cats.

If you think I’m the one for you, download the form and return it by email.

Sunny Arevic

My name is Sunny Arevic, and I’m a 3 year old Armenian rescue.
I was found on the streets in pretty bad shape, one eye needed to be removed and the other one sees nothing. So I am blind, but you would never know it.

I am very sweet, quiet, playful and super affectionate. I can do stairs, can get around with no problems and even do pretty well on a leash.
I’m a mix, maybe corgi mix from my size and shape.

If you think I’m the girl for you, please download and return the application form.

Leo B

Hi there! My name is Leo B. I came from Lebanon where I was found in a certain state of neglect. I went to a shelter where they realized I didn’t belong there. So I was offered the chance of a Canadian life, and I jumped on the occasion.So here I am looking for love again. I’m young, probably a little over a year old, so be ready to have me for the next 15 years.

I’m good with dogs but not tested with cats or other small pets. As for children, very dog-savvy kids 10 years and up could do. I’m very quick to bond with my humans. As cute as I may be, it’s important not to let me follow you around everywhere. Don’t let me become a needy and insecure little guy please.

Lilly Rose

Meet Lilly Rose everybody! This spunky Bully girl is currently just a little over 4 months old. Here is her bio…

Lilly is still a puppy but is thriving. She looks at us with soft eyes now, happy to listen for the most part, after all she is a puppy, is doing well chewing her toys and not other things, waits to be invited on the sofa or bed, waits for her food to be placed in front of her, learning to pee outside, also learning how to understand other dogs, not being afraid of certain noise and learning the crate can be a good place to be at times.

Lilly Rose needs to continue with her training, it is crucial for her well being. She is all muscle and will grow to be over 60bls of muscle. Her walking needs to be on point.

Whoever gets this amazing girl to be part of their famiy can expect lots of cuddles and and a very playful girl. She certainly is special and will be so happy to be in her forever home.
