I’m the beautiful and smart Gabriella – you can call me Gabi. I am a boxer mix, about 2-3 years old and full of energy. I was found roaming the streets of Montreal, and no one ever claimed me as their lost dog. So I’ve been waiting for the right home to come along and adopt me. I love spending time with my humans, playing, taking long walks or cuddling on the couch.

If you let me snuggle with you and since I am a serial licker, you will be showered with affection too, don’t worry! I get along famously with all people, dogs and cats. I am a very social creature who loves to meet new friends.

I have absolutely no aggression whatsoever. I may be a bit too energetic for very small kids, but I also know how to be gentle. It really would depend on the kids.

I am very obedient and have shown to be a quick learner and very eager to please once I know what is expected of me. I’ve been bouncing in foster care for a while now as there are so many dogs in need, that people don’t really go to reputable rescues anymore, they’ve rather save their own dog from death row. But what do you think would have happened if I didn’t end up with Sophie and was still in a shelter or pound somewhere, I would have been put down a long time ago. So how about giving me a chance at a real home, not just temporary fosters, when I have so many things to offer the world.

An active family would be ideal: I could be a terrific jogging/roller-blade/biking partner, or a good companion to go hiking. And if agility is your thing, I will sure impress you! I need someone that would offer me lots of love and structure, because I always expect you to lead me.

No doubt that with proper training and a balanced life, I would be a fantastic and extremely loyal companion. If you think you can handle that much love in your life, then I’m the gal for you.



I’m Bronson, and was taken off deathrow from the SPCA Montreal, where they thought me “too intense”. And Pit Stop said I didn’t look “pit” enough and dark brindled pit mixes were not popular so they would not take me under their wing.  Thank God Sophie knew about me and took me out, as I truly am a wonderful dog.  I am a young male, just under 1 year old, with a big love for life. The guess is my mix is Boxer Pitbull of sorts. I do that butt wiggle thing that both breeds do so well, and I have a fabulous smile.  And let’s not forget my beautiful, round, brown eyes!  and wait, those kisses I LOVE to give too!  Let’s just say I’ll melt your heart.

I’m in terrific shape and I have a lot of energy. I need an active person or family because I’m no couch potato. Don’t get me wrong…..snuggling with you on the couch is my favorite thing in the world but us big boys need regular exercise of course.

I received some training and know several commands (in French) and hand commands. I’m a super bright pooch. To know me is to simply fall in love with me. I walk well with a halti but will be working more on walking well on a leash just because it’s the right thing to do!  I so much want to please my new family so I never end up tied to a tree and dumped again.

My ideal home would be one with experience and time to invest in my continued training. If you want a partner to go biking, jogging, roller-blading, then I’m the guy for you.  And a plus – I love other dogs! Kids would be great too, but I am a bit of a brute when I get excited, so no toddlers for me!


Mia was born August 18th 2011 a Boxer / Poodle Mix. Mia had sat in the pet shop since she was 8 weeks old. Her former owners had good attention when they bought her but didn’t realize how much responsibility getting a puppy would be so now she must find her forever home.

Like any puppy Mia will need some training and is not fully house broken but she getting better. She is very playful and loving, even likes to sit on your lap the best she can even though she’s bit of a big girl. Mia rarely barks and is amazing with kids, She would be best in a home that can handle her high energy and will put in the time needed.


They call me Yo – I’m a young mix, probably a Boxer / German Shepherd. I was found as a young teen, almost a year ago now, abandoned in a dog park with a note saying “I’m searching for a family”. I’m probably a little under 2  years old and I’m full of energy but a good boy. We have worked on my education (as I was totally uneducated when I arrived), and I have proven to be a fast learner.

I’m a little more relaxed as I mature but I do have a lot of energy. I get along with most dogs but can be selective.  Like to be the top dog, so a macho or dominant dog I don’t take to very much.  However, I love all humans. Maybe a little “brute” for kids but no aggression. Only love to give and receive.

Sophie is hoping my time is coming, as with so many dumped dogs in the City daily, rescues are so full that a plain looking dog like me often gets passed by, as is the proof since I basically went from teenager to adult in foster care.

But hey, I’m an adult now and I’m ready to move out.  Unfortunately I cannot move out on my own, so I’m looking for someone to share a home with (ideally yours as I am homeless officially) and we can spend the rest of our lives (at least mine) together being best buds. Yo – look at that face!

Lola 3


My name is Lola 3, I was found as a stray and no one came looking for me. I am about 1 year old, maybe less, and probably a Boxer mix.

I am very sweet, but don’t have much manners yet, so a lot of learning to do. However, I’m a very sweet girl, a little excited around other pets, but not a mean girl at all. I just need someone who can structure me, give me some basic obedience, be patient and help me learn how to be a well adjusted, well socialized dog.

My eagerness to please is admirable and I’m very bright. If you think you could be that person/family, contact my people. They need an experienced foster or permanent home for me asap. * Because I appear to have some Pit Bull in me, it is important that I be placed in an area where there is no breed specific legislation in place. I don’t have the standard wide Pit Bull jaw and head BUT if I look like a Pit Bull, then I will be seen as a Pit Bull. Many very uneducated people out there fear this breed sadly. So, as a precaution, we’re saying I’m part Pit Bull but chances are I am not. Regardless….I’m a great girl either way. Hope you’re not the kind to discriminate against this highly unjustly persecuted breed. Dogs are dogs! We all need the same thing….your love and devotion.


It’s been almost five months since I delivered my 7 little Rays, and have now gotten most of my shape back. I am now known as Sunny and have been adopted by my foster home who just couldn’t let me go.

The best thing is that my “grand parents” adopted my little Rayko, so I will see him grow up and forever remain his Mom. We don’t live in the same city, but we will see each other during the holidays, vacations, etc…

I have turned into a beautiful and happy girl, that butt of mine is constantly doing the wiggle. One thing I have learned to love is butter. I guess I felt too skinny for a long time so a little butter helped me put on the weight.


I’m enjoying a nap after running around with my new four legged sister, an 18 month old Lab mix, in the two acre backyard that is part of my new home in Ontario.

All of us 7 Rays are now a little over 4 months old and I’m one of the big boys already weighing 40lbs. It sure looks like I’m going to outgrow Sunshine, our beautiful Mom.

I’m hoping to reunite with my siblings and Mom (who by the way is still looking for her forever home) at Sophie’s future reunions.

Bella 4

Finally, after growing into a beautiful, charming and wonderful girl, I have found a home to call my own.

Not knowing what my breed really is, being young and very skinny when I arrived, it looked like I may grow into a Dane mix. But now that I am fully grown it’s obvious that my mix is probably with Mastiff and not Great Dane as I am short and stocky instead of tall and slanky.

Other than my new Mom and Dad I also have four wonderful young girls to share my life with who are just crazy about me. I also have a four legged sister of the feline kind to keep my on my toes.


Raylen… Poor little me! My sister Rayann left yesterday to go to her new home, as the family came to meet us decided to take her. It was a split vote, 2:2 but in the end the “girls” won and took home the girl. So now I’m all alone and find it hard, as unlike Raynelle who has a buddy with her, I only had Rayann. No other four-legged friends here for me to play with.

I hope to find my forever home soon as I’m getting to be a really big boy (close to 30lbs) and would love for my future family to watch me grow into a BIG beautiful boy. I’ve heard Sophie say that some of her previous puppies have taken up to one year before finding that forever home and I’m hoping to find mine before I weight 90lbs.


Rayven, Raymond and Rayann, my siblings, have been adopted. Am I next? I’m Raynelle, Raymond’s “twin” and have been looking for my forever home which I hoped to find shortly after he was adopted but I’m still in foster care. However, It is looking very good for me as Sophie has an application pending for me which she says is looking very good. So hopefully with this new week coming after Thanksgiving, I will be giving my thanks to this new family for the wonderful future they promise to give me.

I’m crossing all my little toes in hopes that if in fact approved they will fall head over heels when they see my adorable little face and amazing personality and in fact decide to take me home with them.


Hello there, my name is Rayko. I’m one of 7 puppies rescued with their mother after being abandoned in a storage unit!

My mum (Sunshine) and my foster mom are working with me to make me a happy, social and well behaved little boy. I get to go for lots of walks but my foster mom can barely make it down the street without people wanting to pet me! They tell me I’m very cute and are very impressed with my docile and friendly nature. I have a soft, healthy, beautiful tan coat with a dark muzzle. My toes and the tip of my tail are white.

I love napping and cuddling and chasing leaves when they blow in the wind.

I’m 2.5 months old now and ready to settle down. What I really want is to be a part of a family as loving as I am and a place to call home.

Rayann & Raylen

I’m Raylen, the biggest pup (already 20lbs) and my sister Rayann is the smallest one (only 14lbs), all our siblings are in the middle. Both of us are still looking for homes and both of us look a lot like Mom, Rayann even has that white line on her nose like Mom and our brother Rayven.

We have been together since we were born and left Mom about three weeks ago so we’re very well adjusted and socialized. We’re now ready to be split up and find some wonderful homes and hopefully see each other once a year at Sophie’s reunion.

It’s hard to say how big we’ll get but by the looks of things I expect to be about 90lbs and little sis should remain petite like Mom, probably around 60lbs.

If you want to give us a new life, a forever home, contact Sophie at (514) 523-5052 or info@sophiesdogadoption.com

Two down five to go. I’m Raymond, the second one of Sunshine’s 7 Rays to get officially adopted. I went to my new home tonight where my playmates are three cats a one, three and twenty year old cats. The two younger cats should enjoy playing with me, just hope the old one is not going to be grumpy in whack me to much.

Now I’m hoping my sister Raynelle will be the next one to be adopted as she is now left all by herself.

Raymond & Raynelle

Raymond & Raynelle back at Sophie’s until someone can take us in. We spent two days with someone who started teaching us stairs, going outside and we’re attempting walking on a leash.

We’re both growing, are becoming very playful but that also means we are becoming a handful. Ideally we would still need to be fostered together, unless two foster homes with adult dogs who can teach us the ropes could be good as well.
