  • Miniature Pinscher
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Benjamin is a sweet little Miniature Pinscher who was recently surrendered to our rescue. A new baby in his previous home had severe allergies to Benjamin - this family was very sad to see him go. Benjamin’s foster mom only has very good things to say about the dear guy. Ben or “Benj” is incredibly affectionate, loves to snuggle, or curl up on a lap, and needs lots of love and company – he should not be confined or left alone for long periods. He’s friendly with visitors and is quiet and well-mannered in the home. A happy active dog, Benjamin loves to go for walks and is easy on leash, and greets most people and dogs with friendly excitement, but sometimes needs to be gently calmed down. He’s learning to travel quietly in a car and is a good listener, eager to please. Benjamin is 10 years old and weighs 12 pounds. He has some allergies which cause him to scratch. We have him on a daily allergy pill (Apoquel) which has stopped the itching, and have moved him to a hypoallergenic food. We continue to monitor with his vet to isolate the allergy, but the medication works well. Due to his age, we feel Benj is best suited to a home with older children (10 years +) and with a back yard for him to play and exercise frequently. He would not do well in an apartment or condo. Although he has never shared his home with another dog, we feel he may be ok with another friendly dog. We do not know how he would be with cats. Benjamin is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He will be having dentistry next week. If you feel you can give him 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 home visit, reference checks and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $150.00 applies. Benjamin is in a foster home in Toronto.

Tinto is a very handsome Lab/American Bulldog mix new to our rescue. His owners were moving and not able to bring him along. Tinto is one and half years old and weighs 62 pounds. Tinto is a very friendly dog who is affectionate and loves to play. His foster mom says he is a very gentle dog. He is nervous of new people but warms up once he knows you. An adopter with dog experience and willing to work on Tinto’s training is recommended. He responds well to positive reinforcement and will thrive with an adopter who can build his confidence. Tinto likes other dogs and has shared his home with a cat. He is very respectful of the cat and older dog in his current foster home. He loves to go for walks and is learning to walk nicely on leash. His adopter will need to continue on his leash training - he is strong and still pulls when excited. His foster parents are using a no-pull harness to help train him. An adopter with a safely fenced yard is recommended - he loves to be outdoors and zoom around the yard. Tinto has been fine when left on his own in his foster home - he shows no separation issues or destructiveness. He is housetrained. We feel Tinto is best suited to a home with older children. Tinto is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. His blood tests were all normal. If you feel you can give Tinto a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com).

  • Pug, Boston Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
URGENT - FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME NEEDED! Eddie and Charlie are two lovely boys new to our rescue. Their owner is moving away and is very sad about being unable to take them along. Eddie and Charlie have been well loved and are family dogs. Eddie is a 13 year old wire-hair Jack Russell Terrier who weighs 26 pounds and Charlie is a 7 year old Pug/Boston Terrier mix who weighs 25 pounds. They are bonded to each other and we will only consider an adopter willing to accept both of them into their home. Charlie is very friendly and loves people and cuddles. Eddie is also friendly, but a bit more reserved, he enjoys lounging on his bed and playing with his brother Charlie. Both dogs walk very well together on leash. Eddie can pull on the leash a little bit when he gets excited or wants to go say hello to another dog. Charlie is more laid back outside and more interested in what his people are up to. Their owner says that they like riding in the car and are very friendly with other dogs and children. We are not sure about cats. Both dogs are microchipped, neutered and up-to-date with their vaccinations. If you feel you can give Eddie and Charlie a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavelife.com). Our adoption process includes an online application, a telephone interview, a home visit and a meeting with the dogs. An adoption fee of $250.00 for the pair applies.

Sparky is a dear little 10 year old Maltese new to our rescue. Sparky came to us with terribly rotten teeth. The infection had spread through to his cheek and caused an open wound. He has had dentistry and required a full mouth extraction. Thankfully Sparky has made a wonderful recovery and the sore on his face is healing nicely. His foster mom says he is a very nice little dog - he is shy of new people at first but is affectionate once he knows you. Sparky loves to go for walks and is easy on leash. He is used to going out quite often for bathroom breaks so an adopter who is home during the day is recommended. Sparky has always been the only dog in his home. We do not know how he would do with another dog or cat. He is not used to children so we will only consider an adult home. Sparky’s mouth and face have been sore for a long time - he does not like to be touched on the head. Sparky weighs 10 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Because he has no teeth, Sparky can only eat soft food. If you feel you can give this dear little guy 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, reference checks and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $150.00 applies.

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 does not get carsick, but she does get nervous, especially during city driving. She is well-mannered in the house, but does not like to be left home alone for long stretches of time. 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).

Nala is an 8 year old corgi mix whose owner was moving and not able to bring her along. Nala is a very dear dog. She is friendly, loves cuddles, and is very affectionate. She is a bit nervous of new people at first, but warms up quickly once she knows the person. Nala is in good health and loves to go for walks. She loves to play fetch. Nala is good in the car and will always settle down if she has her squeaky toy with her. Nala gets along with some dogs, but not all, and it would be best if she is the only dog in the home. She does not do well in off-leash dog parks, so 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 does not like cats. Nala is well-mannered in the home and house trained. Nala is best suited to an adult home. She is used to being home for a normal work day. Nala weighs 42 pounds.

Myla is a happy and friendly two year old shepherd mix, new to our rescue. She came to us from a shelter in Hamilton where she was found as a stray. Myla is settling nicely into her foster home and has already shown a lot of gains in a short time. She is nervous at first of new situations, new people and loud sounds, but calms down in time. Myla has had a lot of change in a short time so this is expected. Once she knows you, she is very affectionate and sweet. Myla is a super smart dog who is eager to please. Myla responds well to positive reinforcement and will do well with an adopter who will work on her training. Myla loves to go for walks - an active adopter who can give her plenty of daily exercise is recommended. She walks nicely on leash and usually greets other dogs and people in a friendly way - she does sometimes get excited and will jump up. She is the only dog in her foster home and at this time, has not had a lot of interaction with other dogs, so we do not know how she would be sharing her home with another dog. We do not know about cats. Myla is best suited to a calm, quiet adult home with older children. Her foster mom is home during the day so we do not know how she would do on her own. Myla weighs 37 pounds. She is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She is a very healthy, beautiful dog.

Meet sweet Lucy - a very pretty hound! Lucy came to us from a shelter in Quebec where she was found as a stray. We are so happy to have her safe in a loving foster home. This very friendly girl is about 3 years old. Her foster parents tell us she is a lovely, affectionate dog who wants to cuddle and be with her people. Lucy loves to go for walks and will do well with active adopters who can give her plenty of daily exercise. Lucy is friendly when meeting people and other dogs. She is the only dog in her foster home, but so far she meets other dogs in a friendly way when on walks and at the park. We do not know about cats. She can be a bit nervous of loud traffic noises, but generally walks nicely on her leash - she pulls a bit at the first when excited to be on a walk. Like all hounds - she loves to follow her nose! Lucy knows a couple of basic commands, but requires an adopter who will continue with her training. Lucy is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She weighs 66 pounds. Lucy’s skin and ears were infected when she was in the pound. Since coming to us it is better. She is currently on a daily allergy pill and is eating a special Hypoallergenic food. She also requires baths with medicated shampoo. It is possible she will need a daily allergy pill for the rest of her life (Apoquel). We are still in the process of getting her skin issues under control. Her adopter must be prepared to continue with this. If you feel you can give this wonderful dog a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com).

Henrietta is a very dear old dog. She is a 9 year old hound mix that came to us from a shelter near Toronto. She was found as a stray. Henrietta is super sweet and very friendly with everyone she meets. She is affectionate and will do well in a home where she can get a lot of companionship and attention. She is a very deserving, gentle older dog who needs a loving retirement home. Henrietta does not like to be alone - she is a very social gal. She can be vocal when left alone so an adopter in a detached house is recommended. Henrietta’s vetting included a spay and dentistry. Her vaccines are now up-to-date and her blood work was good. She had an ear infection and anal gland infection as well, but both of those have been treated. She is now feeling much better. She has some old dog bumps but they are not serious. Due to her age, we feel Henrietta is best suited to a home with older children and older dogs. She was introduced to a cat at the vet clinic and showed interest, but no aggression so it is likely she would be ok sharing her home with a cat. She loves to go for walks and like all hounds she will follow her nose! She is not safe off-leash and can only be trusted in very secure fenced in areas. She will chase squirrels. If you feel you can give Henrietta a safe and loving home, please see the online application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com).

  • Prefers home without small kids
Chester is a very handsome 5 year old Old English Bulldog new to our rescue. His previous owners had him since a puppy - he was loved and well cared for. They very sadly surrendered Chester to our rescue because they recently had a baby and Chester is not doing well with a baby in the home. The baby makes him very anxious and uncomfortable. Chester is best suited to a quiet, calm and more consistent home environment. He is used to living in a house with a safely fenced back yard - this is recommended. Chester is housetrained and knows some basic commands. He loves to go for walks and is generally fine when meeting other dogs on leash. He will sometimes react if a dog barks at him, but his owners have used “leave it” and he will generally stop given that command. Chester DOES NOT like the dog park - he is best just with on-leash walks for his exercise. He is used to being the only dog in the house. He has not lived with a cat and we feel it is best if he is the only pet. Chester would not do well being left alone for long hours during the day. He is quiet and not destructive when left on his own. He does love attention and will make a wonderful companion. As stated before, he requires an adult home with no children. Chester is in good health and weighs 88 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you feel you can give Chester a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com).

  • Bichon Frise

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.

  • Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Charlie’s adoption is ON HOLD for now during his training process. Charlie is a handsome 15 month old lab mix who came to us from an animal shelter in Toronto. He was very stressed in the shelter and needed the comfort and care of a foster home. Charlie was surrendered by owners who worked long hours and he was left on his own most of the time. Charlie requires slow and proper introductions to people and needs time to feel safe around people. Once you have gained Charlie's trust you've got a friend for life. His foster parents tell us he is a loving, goofy and playful guy. Charlie’s foster family are working with him to grow his confidence around people and in new situations. He has been making great strides in his training, his adopter must be willing to continue with this work. At this time,Charlie is especially nervous around men, children and large groups of people. He is incredibly smart and eager to please, also food motivated which is a huge plus for training. Charlie is a large, strong dog and will require an adopter with experience and willingness to continue with his training. Charlie is a high energy dog and will need plenty of daily exercise. He would not do well in a home where he will be left along for long hours. Charlie is sharing his foster home with another dog and they get along. Charlie loves meeting and playing with dogs outside. It is likely he would do well with another friendly young dog - a meet and greet would be necessary. Charlie’s adopter must be patient and willing to work with building Charlie’s confidence. We feel a house with a fenced back yard in a relatively quiet neighbourhood would be ideal for Charlie. We will only consider an adult home for Charlie (18 years +). Charlie is very affectionate and his foster mom tells us he is a grade A snuggler. Charlie is healthy and weighs 84 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you feel you can give Charlie 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. Charlie is in a foster home in Toronto.

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.

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.
