Diego is a wonderful dog who is new to our rescue. He is a two year old German Shepherd/Husky mix. Diego came to us from a shelter in Southern Ontario, he was found as a stray. Diego is friendly when meeting new people and other dogs and his foster dad tells us he has settled in nicely to his foster home. He has a calm and loving demeanour and is non-destructive at home. He loves to be petted and scratched. We have not had him interact with other dogs off leash yet, but he meets other dogs nicely on his walks. Diego loves to go for walks and will do well with an active adopter who can give him plenty of exercise. We have not had him around young children so we are recommending a home with older children. Diego is eager to please and has already learned some basic commands. His adopters must be prepared to continue with his training. He is young and happy and very deserving. We have had Diego neutered, microchipped and his vaccines updated. His bloodwork was normal. He weighs 55 pounds. If you feel you can give Diego a 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 and a meeting with the dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies. Diego is in a foster home in Toronto.

Roxy is a super sweet 10 year old pug mix. This dear little dog was abandoned by her owners at a boarding kennel. Thankfully, she is now in one of our loving foster homes and doing well! Roxy recently had surgery to remove bladder stones. She has made a good recovery, but must eat a special diet to prevent stones from forming again. She also needs to drink a lot of water and get out for frequent bathroom breaks. Her foster parents take her out every 5 hours during the day (20 - 30 minutes/walk) and that works to prevent accidents in the home. Roxy loves to go for walks! An adopter who is home for most of the day is recommended. Roxy is calm around other dogs, but can be a bit timid. She may be fine with another calm, friendly dog, but a meet and greet would be necessary. Roxy loves to play fetch and will always bring her toy back for another throw! Roxy weighs 25 pounds. She is microchipped and fully vaccinated. Roxy still requires dentistry and a spay surgery. Once she has fully recovered from her bladder stone surgery we will plan for those surgeries (likely in 3 - 4 weeks). If you feel you can give Roxy 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. Roxy is in a foster home in Toronto, ON.

On March 29th he had a right FHO (femoral head and neck ostectomy). His surgery went well and he has made a very good recovery. Rustyâs foster parents only have good things to say about this little guy. Although he is initially unsure of new people, once he knows you he is very friendly and loves to cuddle. (He is more nervous of men.) He loves to play and is eager to please. Rusty is an energetic little dog that really enjoys his walks. He is now able go for longer walks and run and play freely.

Rusty is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. He weighs 13 pounds. We have not been able to let Rusty play with other dogs but he is happy to meet them on is walks.

Jimmy and Crosby need to be rehomed because their current owners are travelling extensively for work. The dogs have been together for almost a decade and are bonded. A home for both Jimmy and Crosby together is what weâre looking for. In fact, adopting them together will actually be easier as the pair get along so well and will be less stressed and anxious if they have each other. Jimmy, 10 year old neutered male approx. 65 pounds Jimmy is a beautiful mature German shepherd mix has warm eyes, a loving heart and a shy personality. He has a quiet personality and can take a bit of time to warm up but is an affectionate guy. Heâs medium-low energy. Jimmy likes puzzle toys that involve food as long as they are not too difficult. He likes to play tug-of-war & fetch with a ball or stick but will only play for a short time. He likes to lie on soft surfaces, enjoys the water but doesnât like to swim. He would love an owner who is moderately active and have the space to run and play outdoors. Jimmy loves playing with Crosby. If you are looking to share your days with a dog who will keep you active without wearing you out Jimmy would be good for you. Crosby, 9 year old spayed female approx. 55 pounds Crosby is a beautiful mature Great Pyrenees and Collie mix. She has lived a quiet life away from kids and a lot of action. Sheâs always been with her BFF Jimmy in a quiet adult home. She is a good companion dog as she loves to follow her current owner around the house and enjoys one-on-one time playing fetch, chasing toys, walking on the beach or hanging out with Jimmy. Crosby and Jimmy would be perfect in a home where there are no children, or other dogs. They are fine when left alone and do not chew or become anxious however, they do love human companionship so someone who is retired or an empty-nester would be ideal. Both dogs are larger and like daily activity but also like to chill and nap. If you are looking to share your days with two loving dogs who will keep you active without wearing you out look no further than Jimmy and Crosby!

ADOPTION PENDING : Sam is a delightful shepherd-hound mix pup who is 7 months old. Sam had a hard start to life - as a wee pup he was passed from home to home and had little attention or training. Sam would love a forever home with a caring family willing to give him plenty of exercise and continue with his training. His foster parents adore him and tell us he is sweet and affectionate. They have seen a lot of progress in Samâs training since he came to their home. Sam will require an active adopter who will give Sam lots of walks and play time. He loves to be outdoors. His foster parents are walking him with a harness and are working on his leash skills. His adopter must be prepared to continue with this training. He is doing well with his house-training but still has the occasional accident. Sam is food motivated which is a bonus for training! He did have some resource guarding when they first took him into their home. We recommend his adopters work with a positive based trainer to get off to a good start with Sam. Sam is sharing his foster home with another dog. He loves playing with dogs but can at times be a bit too overwhelming for some dogs. He just wants to play and doesnât like to take no for an answer. We recommend a home where Sam will not be left alone for long hours. His foster parents work opposite shifts so he is used to having someone around most of the time. Sam loves riding in the car. We feel Sam is best suited to an adult home with older children (12 years +). Sam is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. He weighs 45 pounds. If you feel you can give Sam a loving forever 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 dog. An adoption fee of $350.00 applies. Same is in a foster home in Toronto.

Brava and Leo are a dear pair of dogs that came to us from a shelter near Toronto. They are seniors that have always been together - we will only consider an adopter that will take both dogs together. Their foster mom only has good things to say about this duo. They are quite lovable! It took some time for them to settle in and feel at home but overall they adjusted well. Leo is the more resilient of the pair. Brava is quieter and needs time to feel confident in a new place. Due to her age, her vision and hearing are impaired. That also makes it more challenging for her to adjust to a new home and routines. Their adopter must be understanding of their age and be accepting of their limitations as senior dogs. Brava is a Bichon who is 15 years old and weighs 7.4 kg (16 pounds). Leo is a Shih Tzu who is 13 years old and weighs 8.8 kg (19 pounds). They are both in good health. Both dogs have had recent dentistry. They are up to date on vaccinations, spayed / neutered and microchipped. They still enjoy going for walks and will romp around the back yard. Brava is best with short walks - Leo can go for longer walks. They are house trained and well-mannered in the home. Their foster mom is home with them during the day. She lets them out on a regular basis. We are seeking a home where they will not be left alone for long hours every day. Both dogs are sweet and affectionate. A calm, quiet home is best suited to Brava and Leo and for that reason we will only consider families with older children (12 years +). Easy access to a back yard is recommended - Brava would not be able to handle a home with lots of stairs. If you feel you can give these two sweeties a loving retirement 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 $200.00 applies (for the pair). Brava and Leo are in a foster home in Toronto.

Update on Jonah: Jonah has arrived safely in Toronto from the Soi Dog Rescue in Thailand. He is settling in nicely to his foster home. Despite the stress of his trip and all the changes, Jonah is doing well. He needs a bit of time to warm up to new people, but once he knows you, he is friendly and greets you with a non-stop waggly tail! He is sweet, happy and affectionate. Jonah is 6 years old - he is a petite yellow lab mix and weighs 14kg (30 pounds). Jonah was friendly with some of the dogs at the shelter in Thailand, but we have found he is nervous of the dogs he has met so far since coming to Toronto. For that reason, it is likely he is best as the only dog. Jonah is friendly with cats. 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. 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 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. An 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 Jonah's adopter has a GPS collar and follows the safety protocol recommended by the Soi Dog Foundation. We will work with his 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 email@example.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 of $350.00 applies. Jonah is in a foster home in Burlington, ON.

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.

Thankfully, he is now in our care and getting lots of love and care in foster home. Junior is approximately 11 years old, but you would never know it with his activity level. He enjoys playing and chasing the other dogs in his foster home in his well-fenced backyard, as well as going for walks. 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 Junior is best suited to a calm and quiet home without young children (12 years +). An adopter who is home for at least some of the day is preferred. Junior is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Junior will make wonderful companion. Junior is best suited to an adopter who lives in a house with a safely fenced back yard. No apartment or condo dwellers as he can be vocal with excitement.

Minnie is a beautiful young dog rescued from the streets of Thailand. She is 1 year and 6 months old. She weighs 28lbs. She arrived from Thailand in January 2019 and is settling in well. 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. Her foster parents report that Minnie is so sweet and very calm. She is still adjusting to life in Canada and can be a little nervous and unsure of her surroundings when outdoors, but has made so much progress and is doing really great. She is very smart eager to please - she has learned a few commands and tricks already (sit and shake a paw). She absolutely loves being near people and cuddling on the couch - she will snuggle up to you in bed if you let her! She will require come patience while she gets used to all the sights and sounds that are so different from her previous home at the shelter in Thailand. She travels well in the car and is not destructive in the home when left alone. Minnie would 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, as she loves running around in the backyard at her foster home. She is currently the only dog in the home but we think she would do well with another calm friendly dog. We feel she would do best in a home without young children (12+). 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 potential adopters. If you are interested in Minnie please contact us at (416) 787-3862 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see our website for more information about our adoption process. An adoption fee will apply.

Winnie is a dear 9 year-old corgi mix in need of a forever home. Winnie is in our rescue because her owner was moving and not able to bring her along. Winnie is a very friendly dog. Her foster mom tells us that Winnie is great 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 also runs with her foster mom. Winnie is best as the only dog in the house. She does not get along with cats. A house with a fenced yard would be ideal, but her foster mom lives in an apartment and she does fine. Winnie is well-mannered in the house, but does not like to be left home alone for long stretches of time. She would do well with someone who works from home or is newly retired. She is a wonderful companion. 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 recently had her teeth cleaned.

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. Winnie is in a foster home in Toronto.

FOREVER IN FOSTER CARE Layla and Peppy are 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 Layla and Peppy 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 Peppy and Layla comfortable during their remaining days. 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. If you would like more Sponsorship information or to sponsor Layla and Peppy, please send an email to email@example.com.
