  • Shepherd, Husky
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Soda is a beauty! She is a 10 month old white shepherd/husky mix. We rescued Soda from a shelter in southern Ontario - she was found as a stray. Soda is a sweet and gentle dog. She is a bit nervous in new situations and with new people but once she knows you, she is friendly and loves to be near (she is more nervous outside). Soda loves other dogs and we feel she would do well in a home with another very friendly, active dog. She is more confident with another dog to show her the way. Soda would do well with an active adopter who can give her plenty of daily exercise. An adopter in a house with a safely fenced yard would be ideal as she is still very fearful on leash. Her foster mom already notices her to be more confident, but her adopter must be prepared to work on her leash skills and training. Soda has had no accidents in her foster home and is fine when left on her own - not destructive and not crated. She would not do well being left alone for long hours. She chases the cat in her foster home, but not in a mean way - she wants to play. An older cat may not appreciate sharing their home with Soda. Soda will blossom with a patient and loving adopter who is willing to give her time to learn and transition to her new home. Soda is healthy and weighs 60 pounds. She is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. If you feel you can give Soda 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. Soda is in a foster home in Toronto.

Marley is a very friendly and happy shepherd/lab mix. He is a striking dog with a gorgeous red coat. He came to us from a shelter near London, Ontario. He was surrendered by his owners because they no longer had time for a dog. Marley is three years old and weighs 65 pounds. He is a very active dog and will do well with an adopter who can give him plenty of daily exercise. He needs some further training on his leash, but is a smart dog and knows basic commands. His foster dad only has good things to report. He tells us that Marley quickly settled into his home and has good house manners. Marley is a healthy dog. He is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations and microchipped. His blood results were all normal. Due to his large size and exuberance, we feel he is best suited to a home with older children. He is friendly with other dogs and most likely would be fine with another young dog. Proper introductions would be necessary. He would not do well in a home where he will be left alone for long hours. 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). Our adoption process includes an online application, a home visit, reference checks and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies. Marley is in a foster home in Toronto.

Mojo is a very sweet little 8 year old chihuahua in need of a new home through no fault of his own. He is a bit timid at first, but responds nicely to a gentle approach. His foster mom was in love with this little guy as soon as she met him. Once he knows you, he is very affectionate and so very cute that any adopter will fall in love. He loves to snuggle and give kisses. Mojo came to us from a family who were no longer able to keep him. He lived with other small dogs and we feel he would be fine with another friendly, calm dog. Due to his good nature it is likely he would be fine with a cat. Mojo would not do well left alone for long hours. We feel he is best suited to a calm and quiet home with older children. Mojo loves to go for walks and walks very nicely on his leash. He is healthy and weighs 8 pounds. We just had him neutered and he did require dentistry. He is microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you feel you can give Mojo a loving and caring 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 $350.00 applies. Mojo is in a foster home in Toronto.

  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
FOSTER OR FORVER HOME REQUIRED Rocky is a beautiful German Shepherd - he is one year old. Rocky was rescued by a wonderful family, but unfortunately they are not able to keep Rocky. He was abandoned by his previous owner and these kind folks took him in. Rocky is friendly with people and loves to go for walks. He is very affectionate and loves to play. An active adopter who can give him plenty of daily exercise is a must. He is a very smart dog who is house trained and knows some basic commands, but Rocky is still very much a big puppy! He requires an adopter who is willing to continue with his training. He needs training on leash and when excited he jumps up on people. For this reason, we feel he is best suited to a home without small children. An adopter who is experienced with the breed would be an asset. Rocky does not get along with the dogs in his current home. We feel he is best suited to a home where he is the only dog. We do not know about cats. His adopter must be prepared to properly socialize him with other dogs. Rocky weighs 75 pounds. He is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you feel you can give Rocky a safe and loving foster or forever home, please see the adoption / foster information on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). An adoption fee of $350.00 applies.

 . Pepper .
  • Shepherd, Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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. A really young, active dog would not be a good fit for her. Pepper likes to go for walks and is good on leash. Pepper is best suited to a quiet, calm home without children. Pepper is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations and microchipped. Pepper’s adoption is on hold until we know more about her medical issues, but if you would like more info on this dear dog, feel free to contact us at (416) 787-3862.

Bella is a beautiful, red-brindle shepherd/collie mix. She is 8 years old and has always had the same owners. Unfortunately, due to a new baby, Bella is in need of a new home. Bella is a gentle and sweet dog but the baby makes her uneasy and nervous. Bella is best suited to a calm, quiet home without small children. We seek a very kind and patient adopter who will give Bella time to slowly transition to a new home and build her confidence. Bella has never shared her home with another dog or cat - she is best as the only pet. We feel Bella would do well in a quiet neighbourhood where she can go for walks without meeting up with lots of other dogs. A house with a safely fenced back yard would be ideal. Bella will require leash training - she is strong and she pulls. She does not enjoy the off-leash dog park. Bella is housetrained and knows some basic commands. She takes treats very gently and loves to snuggle up on the couch. Bella weighs 55 pounds. She is healthy, up-to-date on her vaccinations and spayed. If you feel you can give this very deserving dog a safe and loving home, please see the adoption/foster information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com) or call us for more information (416) 787-3862.

  • Shih Tzu

ADOPTION PENDING : Snow is a 3 year old shih tzu mix. He came to our rescue from a family who worked long hours and realized they were not home enough to care properly for a dog. Snow is a friendly little guy. His foster parents tell us he is a happy dog who loves to snuggle and play with their dog. Since Snow was left alone for long hours he can be a bit anxious when on his own. He will require adopters who are patient and able to give him time to transition to their home. He can be a bit vocal at times. We feel he may be less anxious if his adopters have another friendly, active dog to keep him company. Snow loves to go for walks and would be best with an active adopter who can give him plenty of daily exercise. He loves chasing his ball. Snow would not do well in a home where he will be left alone for long hours. Snow is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He weighs 33 pounds. He came to us with ear infections and skin irritation. We have changed him to a good quality diet which is recommended going forward. If you feel you can give this beautiful dog a safe and loving home, please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com).

Maggie is a 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 mom tells us she settled in nicely. She knows some basic commands and is house trained. Maggie greets everyone with a waggly tail and is a very happy dog. 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. She was not respectful of the cat at the vet clinic. On walks she does not do well with other dogs who get in her face. Her adopter must be prepared to work on socializing her with other dogs. Maggie listens and responds well to positive reinforcement. She is not a dog who can go to an off-leash dog park at this time. An adopter with a safely fenced back yard would be ideal. Maggie would not do well in a home where she will be left alone for long hours. 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.

  • Pomeranian
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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. We have had Peppy and Layla in our rescue program for several months. 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. Since it is frequent that they need to go outside they must go to a home where someone is home for most of the day. It is also recommended that they go to a house with easy access to the backyard. It would be challenging to get them out quickly if their adopter lived in an apartment. It is likely they will have accidents in the house - only those that won’t be bothered by this should apply. 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. Layla and Peppy would do best in a calm, quiet home with older children (12 year +). We are not certain how they would be living with a cat. If you feel you can give Layla and Peppy 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 dogs. An adoption fee of $300.00 for both dogs applies.

  • Thai Ridgeback
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Boris is a handsome 6 year old Thai Ridgeback mix who is new to our rescue program. Boris came to us from Thailand where he was rescued from the illegal dog meat trade by the Soi Dog Foundation. We worked with them to save Boris and give him the opportunity to live a wonderful life here in Toronto. Boris is slowly adjusting to his foster home with a lot of patience and great care from his wonderful volunteer foster parents. They have seen gradual and steady gains in his confidence. He is starting to become playful and show an interest in toys! They live in a condo and he has adjusted to their home, but he would also do well in a house with a safely fenced back yard. Boris will need an adopter who is willing to be very patient and give him time to transition to their home. Boris is sharing his foster home with a cat, but he is still learning to share and to not chase the cat. We do not know how Boris would be sharing his home with another dog but with proper, slow introductions he may be ok. Boris is beginning to be interested in other dogs outside but he growls at them once he's had enough interaction. An older, friendly, calm dog would be best. Boris appears to prefer the company of people over dogs. We feel Boris is best suited to a quiet, calm home without children, as well as being in a home where someone is home for most of the day. Boris is learning to feel more comfortable outside on walks but if startled, may freeze and refuse to move in the middle of the street. He must be walked with a safe harness and leash. At this time Boris is not safe off-leash. As noted he is still very fearful of loud noises, sticks and canes, and can be easily startled. Boris refuses most dog treats. Boris is not food motivated so training him is more challenging. Boris moves very slowly on walks. Boris is strong willed and stubborn and will flop down onto the ground if he doesn't want to go somewhere. At this time of transition Boris is proving to be a picky eater and will only eat kibble if fresh cooked meat is mixed into it. Boris weighs about 70 pounds. He is neutered, current with vaccinations and microchipped. He just had a dental cleaning. He was examined by an orthopaedic surgeon for a luxating patella, but Boris does not require surgery. Boris is protective of his foster home and weary of strangers entering the home. He may bark and growl initially and it takes time for him to feel comfortable with visitors. His foster parents are also working on addressing his resource guarding as he will growl if you try to take a high value treat or toy. If you feel you can give Boris 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 meetings with the dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies.

Camilla is a beautiful cat in need of a loving home through no fault of her own. A kind woman took her in when she was abandoned, but was not able to keep her. We have taken dear Camilla into our care. Our vet feels Camilla is around 7 years. She is very friendly with people and is doing well in her foster home. She is the only pet in her foster home and we feel she may be best as an only cat. Camilla is in good shape - she is a bit overweight, but otherwise very healthy. We had her teeth cleaned and also a small benign lump removed from her chest. She is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.

Baby and King are two of the sweetest little dogs you will ever meet! We rescued these two little chihuahua mixes from a shelter in Northern Ontario. Their foster mom tells us they are both very affectionate and love to cuddle. Baby is 12 years old and weighs 10 pounds. Once in our care she was spayed, and had surgery to remove a couple of small mammary tumours. She also required dentistry. Baby is recovering very well. King was neutered and had a cherry eye repair - he is also now doing well. He is 9 years old and weighs 11 pounds. We feel Baby and King would do best in a quiet, mature home with older children. They get along well with other small friendly dogs. Baby and King are both up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped. If you feel you can give Baby and King a safe and loving, home please see the adoption information and application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com).

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 and we recommend his adopter to continue to administer. 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. We feel Sparrow would do well in an adult home. He does seem nervous of children on his walks. Sparrow is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He has also had a dentistry. If you feel you can give Sparrow a safe and loving home, please see the online application on our website (www.adoptadogsavealife.com). We do not have a shelter to visit - Sparrow is in a foster home in Toronto. Our adoption process includes an online application, a home visit, reference checks and a meeting with the dog.
