Lucky Luke

Hi there! I’m Lucky Luke, a one yr old Pit Bull Dogo Argentino mix. I was found as a stray and my owner never claimed me so here I am looking for a new forever home to call my own. I’m a high energy pooch in need of basic training and plenty of regular exercise.

I’m very sweet and loving. I get along great with other dogs. I’m bright and eager to please. I was rather insecure when I was first rescued but have learned to trust people and now enjoy meeting strangers when out on walks.

I have an excellent temperament. I need a structured stable home where I can continue to thrive and become the terrific dog I was meant to be. I need to be on a grain-free diet as I am prone to food allergies.

Chaos

My name is Chaos and I guess it’s due to my energy level as a young pup. However I am no young pup, but in fact a senior dog. I’m actually 10 years old and still very healthy and quite active. You could say the name still suits me. My story is sad, I was kicked out of my house because a baby was born and mom decided she didn’t want any drool or hair or traces of my presence in sight. I have a huge mass on one of my knees that Sophie had asked my family to have removed, but because it’s esthetic, not a health issue and could not be done at the time of sterilization (yea I was just now neutered), they did not want to spend the $500 dollars on what they considered unnecessary. So if money can be raised Sophie will have it removed, if not I may have it for the rest of my life. I’m good with other dogs, NOT good with cats and quite strong and would probably knock children over. However I’m not at all aggressive, I’m all about affection, love and kisses. I may be ten but healthy as I am, I could very well live into my teens.

Boadicea

Not much is known about me, but one thing for sure is I’m a fighter. That’s why I’ve been named Boadicea, I was pulled off death row from one of these horrible gas chambers and have vowed to fight back and survive. I’m probably about three years old and definitely a mutt, your guess is as good as anyone else’s.

So far I’ve proven to be a great gal, well behaved, quick learner and very friendly. I’m good with other dogs, and would probably do well with kids.

I’m now looking for a castle to move into and I would love to share it with you.  

Bucky

My name’s Bucky but they call me Cowboy!  I’m a bit of a cowboy when it comes to other dogs.  You see I was bounced and sometimes missed several meals, so if you’re a dog, you’d better not approach when I’m eating or I’ll pin you down!  However, I trust that humans will not take away what they gave me, so no protection towards my stuff with people.

I am about 1 year and a half, and already had 4 homes.  So my 5th better be my last, as I want to finally settle down.  After all, I like girl dogs quite a bit, so a nice lady friend would make my life sweet! Right now I’m pretty macho, so males – need to check that out some more.

As all pitbulls, I am VERY sweet with humans, once I learn some good manners (and I’m very eager to please), I would probably love having kids to play with and protect.  All in all, I need to be socialized with other dogs, taught some basics, learn to be a well-balanced boy, but most of all a stable and structured environment.

Give me a chance to show you my potential, all I need is love, patience, understanding and commitment and I will be forever grateful.

Bronson

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!

Princess 2

I’m the most beautiful Princess you’ll meet.  I’m a young and loving 3 year old, petite American Staffordshire Terrier (pitbull) who is desperately seeking a wonderful home.

I had a bit of a rough start, I am very timid and extremely submissive, but with time I have started to come out of my shell and become a much more assertive dog.  I am hoping to live with kids, as all of us pitbulls usually LOVE children. And a plus for my breed is that I get along with other dogs very well. Cats, well let’s say I was attacked by one in foster care and I don’t care for them too much anymore.

I need some structure and some training, but I am so eager to please and so very smart that it will take no time at all in a stable home to become the best dog ever!

Please be my Knight in shining armor, and I will be your Princess forever!

Luna 4

I’m Luna 4, a sweet Pitbull who’s already had two litters at the age of 1 and a half. I’ve already had several homes and my last owner went to jail so I went to a friend who gave me to his friend who gave me to another friend who’s mother afraid of me.

So here I am with Sophie’s Dog Adoption where I am hoping to find that last, forever, wonderful home I’ve been dreaming of since I started to walk.

Despite my bouncing around I have remained a typical loving and charming Pitbull, I all want is love and kisses.

Tyson v. Montreal (T.K.O 1-0)

“Tyson 4” the Pitbull wins the first and biggest round against the City of Montreal in Superior Court. The City of Montreal wanted to euthanize “Tyson 4” because he bit and injured another dog. First the City ordered a 90 day muzzle order, only to replace said order one week later for a euthanasia order. The City claimed it would seize “Tyson 4” after 72 hours if he wasn’t executed. Of course Sophie didn’t comply, told the City they would need to find him, while they replied with the threat of daily fines for each day his execution wasn’t proven, as they gave Sophie the option to select the method of euthanasia (her own vet)  versus sending him to the Berger Blanc.

Knowing the City of Montreal “had” the power to seize without a warrant signed by a Judge to authorize such search & seizure, Sophie made “Tyson 4” jump (hidden on the Island, yet out of the City’s reach). Sophie filed a Motion in Superior Court asking the Courts to « DECLARE unconstitutional the sections of the City of Montreal By-Law concerning Dog and Animal Control, R.B.C.M. c. C-10, notably sections 12, 16, 18, 19, 20 and 22, which empower officials of the Respondent to enter a domicile and/or seize or euthanize a dog without warrant or due process ; » accompanied with a Stay of Execution against the euthanasia order so that “Tyson 4” could come out of hiding.

The first Judge allowed the case against the City, and issued an order that Sophie could take “Tyson 4” out of hiding for as long as he wore a muzzle at all times when in public or around other dogs, until his trial date. The second Judge, “trial Judge” heard the case which lasted 2 days and ruled in favor of “Tyson 4”, setting a precedent against the City of Montreal.

CONCLUSION

[137] In conclusion, the Tribunal want’s to underline that the case isn’t about if the dog is a danger to the public. That decision would be up to the municipal authorities. All tough before issuing such order, the City does need to respect the fundamental rules found in the Civil and Penal Code of Procedures, which wasn’t done in this present case.

[138] The Tribunal is therefore sensitive of the facts that Tyson’s behavior does justify the worries the City has. The Tribunal therefore takes notice of the agreement that Sophie is willing to keep the dog muzzled at all times when he is outside of his residence. For this agreement to be upheld, Sophie won’t be allowed to adopt out or dispose of “Tyson 4”.

FOR THESE REASONS, THE COURT :

[139] WELCOMES in part the motion;

[140] SQUASHES the euthanasia order issued in virtue of article 19 of By-Law concerning Dog and Animal Control, R.B.C.M. c. C-10, issued on the 14th of July 2010 targeting the male dog named “Tyson 4”;

[141] SQUASHES the fines issued to the Plaintiff for not having conformed to this euthanasia order within the delayed time;

[142] ORDERS the Plaintiff to comply with her agreement to keep the dog muzzled at all times when he is outside of his residence and ORDERS her to conform to it;

[143] ORDERS the Plaintiff not to get rid of the dog in question;

[144] DECLARES  invalid and null the words « saisir au domicile de son gardien » found in articles 12, 16, 25, 29 of the Règlement sur le contrôle des chiens et autres animaux (R.R.V.M. c. C-10);

With this jurisprudence, why hasn’t the City re-written it’s By-Law? They keep issuing these bogus letters claiming to be legal euthanasia orders, when in fact it’s not even worth the paper it’s printed on.

Sophie now decided to sue the City of Montreal $25 a day for the boarding fees incurred while “Tyson 4” was in hiding. The City refused to pay a $3,000 bill without knowing where “Tyson 4” was boarded. That is not for them to know, so a Judge will decide if the City has a right to know or not. Sophie is now asking for $6,000, $3,000 in fees, another $3,000 in punitive damages for a violation of her Human Rights.

The City claims this Judgement is only applicable for Tyson 4’s case, and therefore not valid towards any other euthanasia order the City is handing out.  With that said, Sophie has offered help for those willing to fight the City in Court. Since this Judgement, we are aware of 3 other cases that might end up in Superior Court against the City.

Chiko

Hello there! I’m Chiko. You may have seen my photo and heard about my sad story on the news this last Summer. I was found in a very emaciated state (see photo 3 ) by 2 good Samaritans who decided to take me home. I was obviously a victim of neglect. I’m now 10 months old and full of energy. Although the couple who rescued me fell madly in love with me, they realize that they lack the experience and time required to take care of me properly. Their wish for me is to find the perfect home where I will get the exercise and training I need. Right now, I lack education but my desire to learn is obvious.

I’m a real love nugget but I have not been taught manners around other dogs and I have a lot of energy I need to release. Regular exercise like daily long walks is very important for my well-being. I spent most of my young life confined to a crate, unable to move, my mouth tied shut it would seem based on my scar and was starved. Imagine how much I love to be free now! I need a calm and confident leader who will understand my needs but not feel sorry for me . I need someone to provide me with structure and of course, much love. I’m neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

Alysha

Hi there! I’m Alysha, a Pitbull mix. Not sure what the other breed(s) is but it looks like maybe Shepherd and Boxer. I’m a very pretty brindled girl with one white paw so it looks like I’m wearing one sock. My nose is rather long and my legs are too so I am not just Pit Bull, that’s for sure.

I get along famously with other dogs and cats. I live with several of them right now in my foster home. I can stay home alone. I won’t cry or bark. I have no problem going in a crate while you’re away for a few hours. I’m really a terrific puppy. I need to get a good sniff of strangers before I feel good about being petted. If people come right up to me too quickly, I will back away. I’m meeting new people every day and have made many new friends. Once I know you, I become your new best friend.

I will be spayed and vaccinated shortly. I already know the basic commands and ask for the door when nature calls. Being still a baby now though, I cannot hold it in all night so pipi pads are needed for me then.
