James

I’m one of four Shih-Tzu puppies who where born on November 8th, 2011, three boys and one girl. Our mom is Zsa-Zsa the Shih-Tzu who was found in a state of neglect. Unfortunately we came as a surprise as it was obvious mom had many litters but didn’t look pregnant when found.

I’m James, the biggest boy at birth. We are all very lively, friendly and learning quickly to socialize well with our siblings and our foster “dad”. In fact, since mommy was a puppy-mill dog, by the time we were four weeks old she was starting to turn us down from nursing.

At that point, she decided to take a break and therefore our foster “dad”, Tarzan has been doing all the socialization and teaching that mom should be doing. We are now ready to start going into permanent homes and are looking be adopted by committed people who will love us our entire life.

We had the chance of being born in the care of Sophie’s Dog Adoption which gives us a better chance at a real life then if we had been sold to pet shots. Don’t abandon us and we will be the most faithful friend you will ever have.

Zsa-Zsa

I’m Zsa-Zsa and I am a total love bug. Around 6 yrs old, or so. In great shape aside from my teeth needing a good brushing once in a while. I was not fed the best food in the past but my breath is fine….no worries. Looks like I was used as a breeding female and once I was too old to give out regular lucrative litters, I was tossed aside.Can you imagine that? Still so young but not for somebody looking to make a buck off of me.

I was found near Honore-Beaugrand metro wandering all on my own. My body shows I have given birth many times. My state at the time was awful. I was covered in fleas, all matted and had bad ear infections. I’m all better now thanks to Sophie taking me in and getting me all the care I needed. I’m in foster care now living with several dogs and cats and I am getting along famously with everyone. I love people, walks and cuddling. I truly am the perfect dog. No issues, no attitude, no special needs. I never bark. I had my hair shaved because of my previous neglect but once it grows back, I will be even more gorgeous that I already am. I have very pretty colors I’m told.

Shaggy

I am named Shaggy and I arrived at Sophie’s Dog Adoption last year, very shaggy looking and already 8 years old.

My story is a very common one, I’m a high maintenance dog and my family finally decided “We have no time for him”.

My first family had always done the grooming themselves, which led to many skin problems when I arrived, as well as bad fungus on my feet. But after a good shave, treatments and good care, it all went away.

I was adopted by a senior lady last year, but she decided to move to Thailand and thought I may not be able to make such a long trip. So here I am now at 9, again looking for a home. I don’t require a lot of attention, I have no anxiety problems but will need professional grooming at least twice a year. I’m not at all barky, I get along well with other dogs, no problems with cats and no aggression whatsoever.

Unfortunately I am no spring chicken, and I do have an enlarged heart, which in the last year has caused me to cough somewhat more and more. So I am what one would now consider a “special needs” dog, I have lost most of my hearing, and my eyesight is not all that great. Because of my age and mellow attitude, I would definitely see myself in a quiet and mellow home, and obviously someone who could care for my medical needs financially. I may not be in the best of shapes, but I am still full of life and pep, and if I find someone to love me for the rest of my life, I will give it back a thousand times!

Please give me the chance to get out of foster and into my own, wonderful and final home.

Ivory Miller

I am Ivory Miller, one of the 5 Miller Family dogs. If you hadn’t heard about us, we were 5 dogs rescued from a Puppymill who were in a terrible state of neglect. We had no clue we were dogs, and had to overcome a lot of things in order to become normal dogs.

Well I have a sister named Viviane, and both of us had been adopted together, but because we are ‘special’ dogs, our education was very different and slow, and it didn’t work out for the family to continue the education with 2 of us.

So I am back looking for a home, ideally with someone who will take my past into consideration and treat me in accordance with that and my needs, but not ‘baby’ me or feel sorry for me. I need to feel strong, secure, stable and it is with someone Alpha who will set rules that I will flourish and become a wonderful little dog.

I already am the best little thing, having no ‘baggage’, everything was to be learned. So with lots of love, positive reinforcement, structure, I can be the best friend. I prefer no little kids, as I am a mellow little girl, but I have recently learned to bark, play with other dogs like real dogs play, and I can learn some more. How to play with toys, how to enjoy a happy dog’s life!

Please give me that chance to find that forever home, I am about 2 years old and really look forward to having a permanent home like the other 4 members of my ‘family’ who are all doing wonderfully. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being in my foster home, but a forever home is what I feel I’m ready for (oh and that other picture, well that’s how I arrived from the mill!).
