  • Akita
Taro is a beautiful 10 month old Akita new to our rescue. He came to us from a shelter in Toronto. Taro has settled in nicely to his foster home and his foster family only have wonderful things to say about this dear dog. They tell us he is very affectionate. He is housetrained and will let you know when he wants out. Taro’s foster home has someone home with him most of the time. He has only been left alone for short periods of time. At this time, he barks when left alone and will need time to adjust to a new routine and schedule. His adopter must be prepared to help him settle in and he would not do well being left alone for long hours during the day. He loves to be outdoors and will do well with an adopter who can give him plenty of daily exercise. An adopter with a safely fenced yard would be an asset. Taro walks nicely on leash and greets people in a friendly way. He is the only dog in his foster home and we are not sure how he would do sharing his home with another dog. We do not know how he would do with cats. Taro weighs 52 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. If you feel you can give Taro a safe and loving home please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, a home visit and a meeting with the dog. Taro is in a foster home in Toronto. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies.

  • Shepherd

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Jack is a very handsome, one-year old shepherd mix new to our rescue. He came to us from an over-crowded shelter in Quebec. He was surrendered to the shelter because his family was allergic to him. Jack is a super high energy dog that must go to an active and experienced leader. Plenty of daily exercise is a must and a fenced yard is recommended. Jack is a very smart dog who is eager to please - he responds well to positive reinforcement. His adopter must be prepared to continue with his training. Jack loves to go for walks and is very social but still pulls on leash when seeing over dogs and certain people. His foster parents are using a no-pull harness and it works well, although more training is required. Jack is the only dog in his foster home - we are not sure how he would do living with another dog or cat. When allowed to greet over dogs he is playful, but needs to learn better manners. We feel he is best suited to a home with older children (12 years +) as he is rambunctious and jumps up - he could knock down a child. Jack is house trained and obedient in the home, but can require some quiet time after an exciting walk. He is okay alone for a few hours at a time - he would be best in a home where he will not be left alone for long hours. Jack is healthy dog who is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He weighs 70 pounds. If you feel you can give Jack a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, a home visit and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies. Jack is in a foster home in Mississauga.

Jonah is a gem! He is a dear dog who is very friendly and eagerly greets people. He is sweet, happy and affectionate. Jonah is 6 years old - he is a petite yellow lab mix and weighs 14kg (30 pounds). He gets along with other dogs. Jonah is currently in Thailand under the care of the Soi Dog Foundation. Our rescue is working in cooperation with Soi Dog to find a loving home for Jonah. The Soi Dog Foundation is a reputable charity that saves hundreds of dogs from the Asian dog meat trade. You can ready more about Soi Dog at www.soidog.org. We are accepting applications for either a foster or forever home for Jonah. Once we secure a foster or forever home for Jonah we will arrange for him to come to Toronto. Jonah is a healthy dog who is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. He is heartworm negative and has been dewormed. We have rescued a few other Soi Dogs in the last few few years. We have found these dogs eventually transition well to their new home but need time and patience. While they are confident at the shelter in Thailand they can be quite nervous and unsure once they come to Toronto. The Soi Dogs require fosters or adopters who have some experience with dogs. They do best in a quiet neighbourhood where there is not a lot of traffic noise and crowded sidewalks. A safely fenced back yard is ideal. A foster or adopter who is home for at least some of the day is also preferred. We find they are best in a quiet, calm home without young children. (12 years +). Soi Dogs are often high flight risks - for that reason we will make sure the foster or adopter has a GPS collar and follows the safety protocol recommended by the Soi Dog Foundation. We will work with the foster or adopter to assist in preparing for the arrival of Jonah and setting him up for success. If you are interested in Jonah, please contact us at info@adoptadogsavealife.com or (416) 787-3862. Please see our website for more information about our foster program and adoption process (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). An adoption fee applies.

  • Dachshund
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Boss is an adorable 3 year old Dachshund. This little guy was found as a stray and ended up in a rural pound. He was very scared at the pound and we are happy to have him in a loving foster home. Boss is a very dear little dog who loves playing with his stuffed toys - he will chase them around the house for hours. He loves attention and wants to be with his foster parents. He is a cuddler and is most happy when his head is on your lap. He is initially shy and will bark at new people, but warms up once he gets to know you. When Boss was new to his foster home he was nervous and unsure, but now that he is settled in he is more confident. We feel he has come from a home where he did not get a lot of positive reinforcement. His adopter must be willing to continue to build his confidence and set him up for success. Boss enjoys his walks, but initially would not pee when on leash (he does now) but for that reason, we feel Boss is best suited to an adopter who lives in a house with a safely fenced back yard. We feel Boss is best suited to a calm and quiet adult home. We will only consider adopters with older children (12 years +). Boss should be the only dog in the home. We do not know if he is friendly with cats. Boss is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He weighs 16 pounds. Two of his legs have malformations, but he gets along fine and is not in any pain. No surgery or medication is required at this time. If you feel you can give Boss a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, a home visit and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies. Boss is in a foster home in Whitby ON.

  • Terrier, Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Meet a dynamic duo - Layla and Junior! They are the sweetest dogs and are a bonded pair. We will only consider an adopter who will take both dogs together. It is hard to believe, but sadly they were left tied to a tree in a park in Toronto, abandoned by their owner, with a note that said – PLEASE LOVE ME. Thankfully, they are now in our care and getting lots of love and care in their foster home. Layla and Junior are both approximately 11 years old, but you would never know it with their activity level. They enjoy playing and chasing each other in their well-fenced backyard, as well as going for walks. Layla is a terrier/chihuahua mix. She weighs 18 pounds and is a very friendly with everyone she meets. She is very affectionate and loves her cuddles. Layla has had dentistry. Junior is a dachshund mix and weighs 20 pounds. He is also friendly with everyone he meets. Junior will require regular exercise in order to keep his handsome figure. His adopter will also have to ensure he is on a good quality food. Junior has had dentistry and his cherry eye repair was a success. We feel these two are best suited to a calm and quiet home without young children (12 years +). An adopter who is is home for at least some of the day is preferred. They are both spayed and neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on their vaccinations. Junior and Layla will make wonderful companions. Although Junior and Layla are currently sharing their foster home with other dogs, their preference is to be the only pets in their Forever Home. Junior and Layla are best suited to an adopter who lives in a house with a safely fenced back yard. No apartment or condo dwellers as they can be vocal with excitement. If you are interested in learning more about their adoption, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, a home visit, reference checks and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $300.00 applies for both dogs. Junior and Layla are in a foster home in Lindsay, ON.

PLEASE NOTE: Amany is still in Thailand with the Soi Dog Foundation. Our rescue is working in cooperation with the Soi Dog Foundation to find a loving home for Amany. The Soi Dog Foundation is a very reputable charity that saves hundreds of dogs from the Asian dog meat trade. You can read more about Soi Dog at www.soidog.org. Amany is a beautiful young dog rescued from the streets of Thailand and currently in the Soi Dog Shelter on Phuket Island. If we are able to find a foster or forever home for Amany the soonest she would arrive is December 1st, 2018. Amany is 1 year and 5 months old. She weighs 15 kg (33 pounds). She is a healthy young dog who is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She has been dewormed and is heart worm negative. The Soi Dog Shelter has found Amany to be sweet, calm and friendly. She likes a slow walk so she can sniff about. She is calm in the dog run and is good with other dogs. We have rescued a few other Soi Dogs in the last few years. We find that even though they are confident and calm in their shelter - once they come to us here in Toronto they are extremely nervous and unsure. The Soi Dogs require fosters or adopters who have some experience with dogs. They do best in a quiet neighbourhood where there is not a lot of traffic noises and crowds on the sidewalk. A safely fenced back yard is ideal. A foster or adopter who is home for at least some of the day is also preferred. We find they are best in a quiet, calm home without young children (12 years +). Soi Dogs are often high flight risks - for that reason we will make sure her foster or adopter has a GPS collar and follows the safety protocols recommended by the Soi Dog Foundation. We will share this information with any foster or adopter. We will only consider a foster or adopter in the Toronto area. If you are interested in Amany, please contact us at (416) 787-3862 or email us at info@adoptadogsavealife.com.

  • Prefers home without cats
Winnie is a lovely 8 year-old corgi mix in need of a forever home. Winnie’s owner was moving and not able to bring her along. Winnie is a very friendly dog. Her foster mom tells us she is good with people and affectionate - she loves attention and is very social. Winnie is in excellent health and has a ton of energy - she loves long walks and running around. She will do well in a home with an active adopter. Winnie is friendly with some dogs but not all. For that reason she is not safe at the off leash park. We feel it would be best if she were in a house with a fenced yard so she can have time off-leash to run around. She loves patrolling the yard to keep you safe from unwelcome squirrels! Winnie does not like cats. Winnie is well-mannered in the house, but does not like to be left home alone for long stretches of time. Winnie is good in the car. She is not used to children so we will only consider an adult home. Winnie weighs 33 pounds. Her vetting is up-to-date (spayed, vaccinated, microchipped) and she just had her teeth cleaned. If you feel you can give dear Winnie a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, home visit and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $150.00 applies.

  • Bichon Frise
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Bella and Rose are two lovely little Bichon Frise. They came to us from a breeder who no long wanted them. We are so happy to be able to give these two wonderful dogs a second chance - they are so deserving. Bella and Rose have a very sweet and gentle disposition despite their previous hardships. Bella is more relaxed and Rose is more curious but timid, and in time will become more confident. They are very bonded and find comfort in each other especially when sleeping on their doggie bed during the day and at night time. We feel it is best they stay together. A patient and loving adopter will be rewarded with two very affectionate and dear dogs. Bella and Rose are best suited to a house with a safely fenced back yard. A quiet neighbourhood would be perfect. They are nervous of loud traffic noises and will freeze when startled. Apartment living would be challenging for them - always having to be on leash without a yard. Having never walked on a leash before they are now becoming more confident, but it is still slow going. They love to explore both inside and outside the home. Their foster family tells us they show small steps forward every day. They are still having accidents in the house, but in time this will subside. They are taken out frequently during the day. They would not do well in a home where they would be left alone for long hours. We feel they would be fine sharing their home with another friendly dog and cat(s). They would be best in a calm, quiet home without young children (12 years +). Bella and Rose are both 8 years old and weigh about 16 pounds. They are both spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. They have both had full mouth extractions due to the poor condition of their teeth. If you feel you can give these two dear dogs a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, a home visit and a meeting with the dogs. The adoption fee is $300 for the pair. They are in a foster home in Lindsay, ON.

  • Shepherd, Labrador Retriever

FOREVER IN FOSTER CARE Pepper is available for Sponsorship only! Palliative care can be very costly. Compassionate and loving foster parents open their hearts and homes; donating their time, providing nutritious food and socializing/training the dogs in their care. But, without the financial support of donors, none of this would be possible. Dogs like Pepper require more than love: they require vital veterinary care. Adopt A Dog/Save A Life, Inc., relies on the generosity of donors to cover the cost of medication and procedures required to keep dogs like Pepper comfortable during their remaining days. If you would like make a donation in support of Pepper, please let us know! ----------------- Pepper is a dear dog who is currently under our care. Pepper came to us from owners who worked long hours and could not keep her. She is a lovely 11 year old shepherd/lab mix. Her foster parents only have good things to say about Pepper. She is well mannered in the home and a joy to have around. Pepper had some medical issues when we rescued her. Her teeth were in terrible condition and she had a large fatty mass. We had the lump removed and her teeth cleaned. Her foster parents noticed that she was drinking and urinating a lot. Pepper is currently under the care of a veterinary specialist at the VEC in Toronto. It is likely she has diabetes insipidus. We have started her on medication to assist with her condition. It will take some time to further assess this condition and determine if this medication is of help to her. The cost is about $100.00/month. Pepper’s foster parents are taking excellent care of her. Although the medication has helped with her incontinence, she still has accidents. She urinates in her sleep. Her foster parents are using pee pads in her dog bed to help with this situation. Pepper is sharing her foster home with another older dog and a cat and they get along well. Pepper likes to go for walks and is good on leash. Pepper is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations and microchipped. If you would like more Sponsorship information or to sponsor Pepper, please send an email to info@adoptadogsavealife.com.

If you would like make a donation in support of Layla and Peppy's care, please let us know! --------------------------- Layla and Peppy are two of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet! They are dear little Pomeranians. Layla is 11 years old and weighs approximately 13 pounds. Peppy is 10 years old and weighs approximately 12 pounds. They are bonded and we will not separate them. They originally came to us because their owner was moving and not able to take them along or care for them properly. They did get adopted but were returned. They are back in one of our very caring foster homes and doing well. Layla and Peppy had several health issues when we first rescued them. Both dogs have had dentistry - they both required full mouth extractions as their teeth were in horrible condition. Peppy had surgery to remove a bladder stone. Layla has a collapsed trachea that sometimes causes her to cough. She often coughs when she gets excited or is picked up. She is on a daily low-dose of steroids to keep her cough under control. Both dogs are up-to-date with their vaccinations and microchipped. Layla and Peppy are very affectionate dogs who love attention. Peppy really lives up to his name and loves to go for walks! Layla is a bit reluctant to walk far distances, but is small enough that you can pick her up when she feels she cannot go any further. She is not able to do stairs and must be carried up and down. They are quiet and enjoy each other's company. Both dogs need to go out for bathroom breaks several times throughout the day. They do let you know when they have to go out. Due to his bladder stone surgery, it is very important that Peppy eats a special diet and has no other food/treats. A dog with a history of bladder stones should be encouraged to drink a lot of water and flush out their kidneys and bladder often. Layla is also on a special mature diet.

Sparrow is a cute little Jack Russell mix we rescued from a shelter near Toronto. He was found as a stray. Sparrow is approximately 13 years old and weighs 16 pounds. Sparrow is an older dog who has arthritis for which he is taking a supplement called Flexadin. Although he loves going for walks he is slow, but is content with short walks. He walks nicely on leash. He has shared a foster home with another dog and was fine. He is a quiet dog who is happy to curl up in his dog bed after a nice walk. He enjoys riding in the car.
