On St-Patrick’s Day 2012, I landed at Dorval Airport from Beirut, Lebanon. My given name is Baguerra, I was found running like mad, dodging traffic on a busy Lebanon highway.

The lady who caught me before I ended up flat on the road brought me back to the only shelter in Beirut, and I have been there ever since. I was just a teeny puppy of less than 3 months at the time, and here we are 5 years later, as a landed immigrant, looking for that home I’ve spent years dreaming of.

Black dogs in Lebanon are just not adopted and I am the proof. So now that I am here and see lots of black dogs walking with humans, I’m thrilled.

I already learned going up steps and hope to go down very soon. It’s a lot of learning waiting for me, but you’ll see, I will be the best student ever!!

I will never pick-up bad habits if you teach me the way, and I will love you forever and ever. I will never abandon you. I love giving kisses and being petted, and I would love sharing my new home with kids, cats, dogs or whatever else lives there.


My name is Soni and I’m now lonely. I’m one of the Magnificent 7, a litter of Golden/Lab puppies born November 2009, and like my foster sister Penelope, I too am looking for a new forever home. I’m only 2 and half, and a beautiful blond. Since I lived in the same house as Penelope, I’m also good with kids, dogs and cats.

I’m a little more anxious than Penelope since we lost our home but are being boarded together at the moment while waiting for foster homes. As well, if I could find a home with Penelope it would make me happy, but I can also learn to live without her.

I do have 5 sisters and a brother that have been adopted, if one of you want’s to welcome me, the little sister, that would also be a great home.


I’m Penelope, and at the age of 5 I am looking once again for a forever home. I was originally rescued back in July 2007 as the youngest one (4 months old) of a batch of starving dogs who where dying in a horrible dog pound. We came to be known as the Lucky 7.

My foster home fell in love with me and decided to keep me as I was such a sweetheart. She continued to foster for Sophie’s Dog Adoption and eventually (2 years later) adopted Soni, one of the Magnificent 7, but now life has changed and she returned both of us.

I’m a big girl, very friendly, housetrained and grew up in a very busy household with young children, dogs and cats so obviously I can adapt to any situation. I’m about 85lbs, a little overweight and can certainly use an active lifestyle.

If Soni and I were to find the same loving home, it would be a bonus, but we can certainly live apart.


The statistics don’t lie! First it was Levi 3, then it was Bert and now it’s me, Maverick, who has been returned almost after four years.

Back in 2006 I was a sweet teenage pup, adopted by what I had hoped would be my forever home. Sophie always makes sure there is plan in case of divorce or babies and she was told Mom would never give me up regardless of what life brought her. Grandpa had also told Sophie if there ever was an unforeseeable situation, he would take me in. Unfortunately I came back at the age of four, again looking for a home, and that was almost two years ago. So yoi guessed right, I’m now closer to 6.

You see, there was a separation and I went to stay with Mom. However after two years of being single, now having a “career” that is taking off, now living in a condo, she has decided that I no longer fit her lifestyle. She told Sophie that she feels trapped, I have made her a prisoner, that she loves me very much but it would be selfish for her to keep me as I need more then what she can give me (yea right!).

So the bottom line is I was young, I was cute, I was fun and now I guess I’m just a big black dog. The cuteness is gone, the puppyness is gone and I’m just now a big 90 lbs dog who needs more then she was willing to give me.

I’m great with dogs, kids, people but I don’t do so well around cats, squirrels, bunnies and etc…
