Koda has been quite fearful of other dogs from 8 weeks old, but has slowly come around, he doesn’t want to hurt them at all, he is just scared at first. Koda he just needs to be introduced slowly. Koda does have some anxiety, especially when left alone, but is learning to relax with training, as he’s still a puppy.

Meet Adoptable Hank!

Hank is a super sweet, 3 year old, male, fawn and white, local surrender, Staffordshire Bull Terrier X. Hank is usually quite calm and gentle, but can be playful and energetic in the appropriate situations. He loves to snuggle on the couch, but also will stick to his bed with a few firm reminders of “no couch”. Hank has been around our children every day for the last 3 years and loves to snuggle and play with them, even if that involves a baby grabbing at his face. He’s only ever retaliated with lots of kisses. He’s also literally never barked before, and is typically very quiet other than the occasional excited yelp while playing tag-a-rope.

Hank goes on 2-3 short walks a day, and that seems to be more than enough for this lazy boy. Walking for more than 20 minutes at a decent pace means he might start taking lay-down breaks on neighbors lawns. On is walks he enjoys many sniffing breaks, and can get excited around other dogs but responds well when told to sit as they pass. If another dog owner allows it he loves to jump around with new friends he meets around the block.

He’s about 60lbs. Hank has a hard time with his recall when off leash with distractions. He has never fully run away before, but he’ll play and jump and dodge you until you eventually wrangle him. Hank is dealing with some skin allergies at the moment, but he is doing better with some medication and strict diet. This sweet boy is now patiently awaiting his new fur-ever home.

Meet Adoptable Honey!

Honey is a super sweet and loving, 4 -5 year old, female, 42 lb, short and stocky, brindle and white, American Staffordshire Terrier X Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Honey has so much affection to give and is always ready for cuddles with her gentle and really loving demeanor. Honey likes to go for walks and light hikes, and does fairly well on leash. She would do best in a medium to low energy household. Honey has been fine around dogs her size and bigger, but seems to be quite curious of smaller dogs for the time being, so we are going slow, but she has not tried to hurt one, just pulls with curiosity. We haven’t tested Honey around kids or cats yet. Honey was used for breeding and was sick before she was dumped, but is now getting the healthy life she deserves and is ready for her new and loving forever home.

Meet Adoptable Ginger!

Ginger is a beautiful, 2.5 year old, female, fawn and white, 55-60 lb, American Pit Bull Terrier. Words from her foster mom:

Ginger is a doll! She knows sit and lay down and is working on stay. She is an angel on the leash and loves her walks. Off leash she has perfect recall and stays by your side. While she’s nervous at first in new places she quickly gains confidence and relaxes. Ginger doesn’t pay much attention to other dogs and we have seen no signs of reactivity or aggression in any encounter so far. She has been very kind. Ginger can be slow to warm up to strangers, but once she has, she is your best friend. Ginger loves respectful kids and has grown up around them in her previous home. Gingers showed no prey drive in the first meeting with our cat, but would like to chase birds. Car rides are getting better all the time. She still gets a bit anxious in a kennel and we are currently working on that as well. This beautiful girl Ginger will make someone or a family very happy. Ginger is now patiently awaiting her fur-ever home.

Meet Adoptable Vader!

Vader comes to us from the mainland, rescued through Surrey Animal Resource Center. Vader is a very loving, male, 2.5-3 year old, 135lb, white with black spots, St.Bernard X Sharpei X Boxer. Vader is a loving boy that gets along with all nice people and dogs, although his size can intimidate some dogs, but Vader just wants to love and be loved. Vader is a very smart dog and can be trained to learn a lot, and can also open fridges on his own, and well as other things. We believe Vader would do best in a home with a big backyard or acreage, and preferably no young children, he just doesn’t always know his own size. Also, because he does have some pretty sensitive skin allergies to chicken, grass, and other pollens, so kids could irritate that if touching him too much. We have Vader on a strict diet and skin medication, and that has been going well, but he will need to continue to have a very strict diet and skin medication, which we are fully providing for him while he settles into a new home and environment. This boy is such a loving doggy that just has such a zest for life, he doesn’t need lots of exercise before he gets tired, and he just loves to hangout on a nice cold floor, couch, dog bed or concrete to relax. Vader is neutered and up to date on vaccinations, and is now patiently awaiting his new forever home.

Meet Adoptable Dusty!

Dusty is a local surrender, female, cream and tan, 12 year old, 25 lb, 20-23″ tall, mixed breed. This sweet girl has a lot of life and love left in her to give. Dusty loves to play with the ball in the yard, is good on leash, and can run very fast. Dusty also enjoys cuddling on the couch or in bed with you, and has a love for treats. Dusty is good with basic commands, with other dogs and people, but prefers calm dogs and people when first meeting them, some small rambunctious children can make her nervous from their high energy. She doesn’t want to hurt them at all, she just is scared and keeps her distance. Dusty can be fixated on deer sometimes, and needs to have a very secure yard, or be on leash at all times when leaving the house, or she will chase the deer. This beautiful girl would do great in a medium to low energy home with someone that works from home, part-time or is retired. Dusty is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations.

Meet adoptable Gertie!

Gertie is a super sweet and cute female, 4-5 year old, 20lb, German Pinscher X Min Pin X Rat Terrier. Gertie is a very sweet, loving and loyal girl that will always be by your side when you’re ready to go. She listens well to commands, and loves to go for walks, hikes and big adventures. Gertie is fine with just snuggling up at home, or going for a 5-10k run. She does best with dogs her size and bigger, not that she doesn’t like smaller dogs, she just can be a little dominant to them at first, never biting, just minor growling. But, that being said, she corrects very easily and can be fine around smaller dogs after she is corrected a few times from trying to be dominant. Gertie is house trained and does good on leash as well. The only issue with Gertie is she does have some pretty heavy separation anxiety. Gertie can’t be left home alone in a kennel or she will do her very best to break out and cause damage. Now, that being said, if she has other dogs in the home with her she is a lot better and doesn’t tend to be destructive at all when left alone at home with other dogs. Gertie is also mostly blind in one eye, but that doesn’t stop the sweet girl from being active and enjoying herself along the way. You don’t even notice that she is affected by it at all. Gertie would make a very loving companion to a doggy orientated home. We are currently searching for the right home for this very sweet and loving girl.

Meet adoptable Willow!

Willow is a very very sweet and loving 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier X Sharpei X Lab. Willow has been staying with our good friends and awesome trainers and this is what they have to say :

I don’t think you can find a sweeter, more affectionate dog! Willow will hug, kiss and lick you all day long. She is super cuddly and polite, likes to take treats very gently, listens well to commands, and has been great around our dogs and any kids we have had her around. She loves to jump, run around and play. Tug, is her favorite game and we have been working on having her drop it. She is a big love and wouldn’t even think about harming any human. Willow loves to go for walks, long hikes, camping, or any full on adventures. Willow can be around other dogs in a home, but would be best suited as the only dog in the home to start. Willow is not destructive and can be trusted left out alone at home.

With all of that being said, she does have some challenges that she has been working on to overcome.
She has a very high prey drive. Anything that moves she wants to chase. We have been working on her impulse control and it is coming along nicely. If she is around other dogs that are too excited or rambunctious she can get over stimulated and will have to step back to relax. Willow will need continued training and support and will have to be give rules and boundaries, as any dog would need.

Who ever takes on this sweet girl will have one free private session as well as one free set of obedience classes compliments of her foster trainers K9Goodlife.

If she is needed to be looked after we will also offer continue support at a discounted rate.
