  • Bichon Frise
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Poppy is just what her name indicates. Poppy is a sweet little Bichon Frise mix that is looking for a loving forever home. She came to us from a hard situation, but unlike a typical puppy mill dog, Poppy is an energetic little girl. She is still a little timid, but she just requires a home to help continue building her confidence and encourage her to let her bubbly personality shine. Poppy is best suited to a house with a safely fenced back yard. A quiet neighbourhood would be perfect as she is nervous of loud traffic noises and will freeze when startled during her walks. Apartment living would be challenging for Poppy - always having to be on leash without a yard. Having never walked on a leash before she is now becoming more confident. She enjoys to explore both inside and outside the home. Poppy is still having the occasional accident in the house and in time will subside. She is taken out frequently during the day. Therefore, Poppy would not do well in a home where she would be left alone for long hours. Poppy loves other dogs both small and large as she lives with other dogs of both sizes in her current foster home. We feel she would be happiest sharing her home with another friendly dog - most puppy mill dogs are more confident with another dog. We are not certain how she would be with cats, but we believe she would be respectful. Poppy is 8 years old and weighs 16 pounds. We have been sure she received all necessary vetting. Poppy has had 20 teeth extracted, spayed, microchipped and is in good health. Poppy has a very wonderful disposition and just wants a loving home where she will be adored. We feel Poppy is best suited to a calm and quiet home without small children (12 years +). If you feel you can give Poppy 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 $150.00 applies. Poppy is in a foster home in Lindsay, ON.

  • Golden Retriever

ADOPTION PENDING : WE CURRENTLY HAVE A NUMBER OF POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS FOR TIANA. WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR HER AT THIS TIME. Tia is a beautiful 9 year old Golden Retriever. She was surrendered to our rescue because her owner had a change in jobs and was working very long hours - Tia was being left on her own for too long. Tia is doing well in her foster home. She enjoys going for walks and is easy to walk on leash. She is friendly when meeting people and other dogs. She has shared her home in the past with a cat and a small dog. It is likely she would be fine living with another friendly, calm dog. Tia is very well mannered in the house. She knows some basic commands and is house trained. She is an absolutely lovely dog. Her foster mom tells us her fur is very soft and she loves her belly rubbed. The colouring on her face is heart shaped. Tia is a very gentle, loving dog. Her adopter must be prepared to give this dear girl a loving and caring home. She is older and very deserving. This is a special, sweet dog. Tia is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She is a bit overweight at 91 pounds. She will lose weight with daily exercise and a healthy diet. Her geriatric wellness test was perfect. Tia has never lived with young children - due to this and her older age, we feel she is best suited to a calm, quiet home. If you feel you can give Tia 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, vet check and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $150.00 applies. Tia is in a foster home in Toronto.

  • Cockapoo
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
JAMIE - 7 Year Old - Cockapoo Jamie is a lovely 7 year old cockapoo new to our rescue. Jamie’s previous owner has serious health issues and knew she could no longer care for Jamie properly. It was with great sadness that she contacted us about helping with Jamie. Jamie’s foster parents only have good things to say about this dear dog. Jamie is a joy who just wants to be with you, and is constantly happy and a sweet dog. She has settled nicely into their home. Jamie loves to go for walks and would do well with an active adopter who can give her plenty of daily exercise. She does get a bit distracted on busy streets. An adopter with a safely fenced yard would be ideal as she loves to be play outside but can get overwhelmed with the craziness of an off-leash park. Jamie is very friendly with people and other dogs and is relaxed when she meets new dogs. She is an affectionate dog who loves cuddles and belly rubs. Jamie is use to a quiet, adult home and we will only consider applicants with children over the age of 12. She is not destructive when left on her own and does not like to be crated. Jamie is housetrained and knows many basic commands and is good at learning new behaviours. Jamie does not like riding in the car so much. Jamie is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She weighs 31 pounds. Jamie is healthy, but has food allergies and must eat a vet prescription food. She will also need a weekly bath with a special shampoo and has recently started a new allergy injection to help prevent reactions (her owner tells us she is also allergic to cats). If this injection proves to be effective it must be given every 6 to 8 weeks. Jamie is on daily thyroid medication which is low in cost. If you feel you can give Jamie 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, reference checks, a home visit and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies. Jamie is in a foster home in Toronto.

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.

Macy is a beautiful 3 year old lab mix. She is a great dog who is friendly with people. Her owner worked long shifts and felt she would be better in a home where she won’t be alone for long periods of time. Macy loves to go for walks and would do well with an active adopter who can give her plenty of daily exercise. She pulls a bit on leash, but settles down and walks nicely once she gets going. She enjoys playing at the off leash park. Macy is used to a quiet, mature home and for that reason we will only consider homes with older children (10 years +). Macy is housetrained and is not destructive when left on her own in her current home. She is fine riding in the car. She knows a few basic commands and loves to play fetch. Macy has always been the only dog in her home. She likes other dogs so she may be fine sharing her home with another friendly dog - an introduction would be necessary. We do not know about cats. Macy eats a prescription diet from the vet due to allergies - when on this food she is fine. She is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations and mircohcipped. She weighs 75 pounds. If you feel you can give Macy and safe and loving home, please see the online 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 $350.00 applies.

  • American Bulldog, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
My name is Tucker and I am an American Bulldog/Lab mix. I'm approximately one year old. I was found as a stray in a rural area of Ontario and spent three long weeks in a shelter. I'm so happy to now be in a wonderful foster home! I love cuddling and belly scratches and playing with my toys. I also love playing fetch and I actually bring them the ball back. I'm still getting used to having a leash on, but I really enjoy going for walks. I only pull once in a while and I'm really getting better - my foster parents are using a no-pull harness to help with my training. I just need more practice. I will bark at strangers when I’m on leash but my foster parents are really working hard to build my confidence. I'm a quick learner and I already know some basic commands. I'll do anything for a treat. I enjoy riding in the car. When my foster parents eat their human food, I don't even beg. I just go lay down and do my own thing. It might be best if my new family doesn't have any young children (I'm kinda big and think I'm a lap dog), but I am friendly when meeting people when off leash. I require a forever family that will keep teaching me things, give me lots of exercise, cuddle on the couch and rub my belly. Tucker is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He weighs 72 pounds. Tucker is housetrained and has had no accidents in the home. He has been left alone for up to 6 hours. He will do well with an active adopter who can give him plenty of daily exercise. As we have mentioned, he is still nervous on-leash. Loud traffic noises make Tucker nervous - for this reason we feel he is best suited to a home in a suburb or home on a quiet street - not on a busy street. Tucker’s foster parents have learned he loves the water! At this time, we do not know how he would do sharing his home with a cat. If you feel you can give Tucker 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 $350.00 applies. Tucker is in a foster home in Georgetown, ON.

  • Beagle, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Maggie is a very sweet beagle-lab mix in need of a loving home. Maggie came to us from a shelter near London, ON - she was found as a stray. Maggie’s foster parents only have good things to say about this dear dog. She knows some basic commands and is house trained. Maggie greets people with a waggly tail and is a very happy dog. At home, she is content just cuddling on the couch with her family. She loves to go for walks and would do well with an active adopter who will give her plenty of daily exercise. Maggie is very strong and will require an adopter who is willing to work on her leash skills. Since Maggie was found as a stray we do not know her history. We feel she is best suited to a home where she will be the only pet. On walks she does not do well with other dogs who get in her face but she can be redirected with a treat. Her adopter must be prepared to work on socializing her with other dogs. Maggie listens and responds well to positive reinforcement. She is food motivated and responds well with the promise of a treat. She is not a dog who can go to an off-leash dog park. An adopter with a safely fenced back yard would be ideal. An adult home is recommended (12 years +). Maggie is approximately 3 years old. She weighs 50 pounds. She is a healthy dog who is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. If you feel you can give Maggie 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.

  • 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.

Hero and Marley are two adorable chihuahuas new to our rescue. These little guys are now in our care because their owner was ill and no longer able to care for them. Hero (Black and White) and Marley (Brown) are bonded and must stay together. Hero is 5 years old and Marley is 6 years old. Hero and Marley are typical chihuahuas - a bit nervous of new people and new situations. They would do well with an adopter who is experienced with the breed. They will bark at strangers and get nervous in new situations but they just need time to adjust. A calm, quiet, adult home would be best for these two. They are not used to children. Hero and Marley love to go for walks and will do well with an adopter who can give them lots of daily exercise. Marley takes the "protector role" on their walks and will bark at other dogs and people. They are used to going out frequently and will do well in a home where they will not be left alone for long hours. Both dogs are neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on their vaccinations. Marley has allergies to certain foods and requires a special diet. Hero weighs 8 pounds and Marley weighs 9 pounds. If you feel you can give these two dear little 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. An adoption fee of $400.00 for both applies.

FOREVER IN FOSTER CARE – SPONSORSHIP ONLY 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.
