Meet Adoptable Lucy!

Lucy is a 2.5 year old, female, black and tan, 55lb, German Shepard X. Lucy is a very loving girl that aims to please and adores affection. She does pretty good on leash and likes to go for walks and hikes, and is still getting used to a lot of new outdoor environments. Lucy seems to be very kind with other dogs and women, but she can be wary of older men. You see Lucy was once owned by an older man that was an alcoholic and he used to abuse her. The daughter of the father finally took Lucy away and contacted the rescue to help. Lucy has still kept her very loving and gentle nature, she just is weary of new men at first. We have not cat tested Lucy yet. This darling girl is now ready for her forever home.

Meet Adoptable Kodah!

Kodah is a 15 month old, male, 50-55 lb, black and white, Husky, from Vancouver Island. This beautiful boy needs an active owner with dog experience, preferably Husky or northern breed experience. Kodah is a sweet boy that loves to go for adventures, hikes, walks, play, and to snuggle up on the couch with you after. He is house trained and has lived with three kids before and been around a lot of people and done very well, but he was unfortunately attacked at 6 months of age and had some nervousness around some dogs after that, but still can make dog friends. He’s just more particular at the moment. Some nice socializing will help him along the way. This sweet boy would do best in a home with outdoorsy and active people that love to get outside and adventure. No other dogs or cats for this guy in the home to start. This stunning boy is now patiently awaiting his new fur-ever home.

Meet Adoptable Honey!

Honey is a 55-60lb, brindle and white, 3-4 year old, female, Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. Honey is one of the sweetest and most affectionate dogs you will ever meet. She has a zest for life and loves to go for adventures, canoe rides, playtime in the yard, or just for a walk. Honey is a big snuggler and thinks she is a lap dog, even know she’s as solid as a rock. She does well in a kennel and left out once she’s comfortable in her new environment. Honey is a powerful girl that will need a strong handler as she can pull hard when she wants too, but can also do well on leash when she’s not stimulated by something like a bird or squirrel. She also can sometimes be fearful of bikes and skateboards and the people riding them. Honey pulls to meet new dogs and will do best when she meets dogs properly and can go slow and have time to sniff. She hasn’t bit another dog before but her energy when pulling towards other dogs could sometimes cause overstimulated incidents. Honey has made doggy friends and has done well on adventure walks with a small pack. Once she knows the dog she’s fine with them. Honey would do best in a home with that is very affectionate, loving, dog experienced, strong and understanding. We are asking for no kids under 10 in the home please and no cats. Honey is now patiently awaiting snuggles from her new family.

Meet Adoptable Zues and Zoe!

Zues and Zoe are two beautiful purebred German Rottweilers. Zues is 6 years old and is the bigger of the two and weighs in around 100lbs+. Zoe is 4 years old and weighs in around 85lbs+. Both are fixed and fully vaccinated. We are in love! Both of these beauties are very bonded and come to us from Vancouver Island. Here are some words from their previous owner.

Zeus is the male, he is 6 years old.
Zeus good points he’s very gentle, affectionate, loves kids, loves water, great swimmer. Very well mannered. Listens well when asked to sit ,lie down, wait ,stay, shakes a paw. Loves going for walks on leash. Always on guard, watching over the yard when outside. Will let you know if anyone one has arrived on property, when inside. Hard to think of anything bad about him.

Things to work on is when left alone, he will howl. I bought an sonic egg that has been working and his howling is very little now.

Zoe is the 4 year old female. Loves your attention always close by. Follows me everywhere, very loyal. Loves her belly rubbed, will do the Rotti rumble and talk loudly sometimes. Always keeping an eye on you, even follows me to bathroom. Haha
Listens well, great on leash and walks. Not a great swimmer, a lot of patience she may go in. She Loves to play catch, but will destroy toys left unattended. No stuffed animals recommend. When she asked to stay sit , wait, or lie down, very good listener. Loves treats!

Things she needs to be worked on would be taking treats gentle, snatches roughly. Releasing her toys when asked. She will steal food left out on counter or table when not watching her. Or get into garbage. This was a problem from previous owners, I have worked on this since I’ve had her, she is getting better. Previous owner would abuse Zoe when he was drinking so no rough playing with alcohol on your breath. She doesn’t forget the smell I think. Zoe’s surgery for her ACL was 2 years ago, $5000 bill. She no longer has pain. Only problem for her is when having to jump up really high or having to jump down from really high up. It’s not recommended.

Hamlin is a 2 year old, male, tri-coloured, 45lb, Staffy X. This guy is a whole lot of love, laughter and cuddles. Hamlin is a very affectionate boy that loves people. He is well behaved in the home for the most part and loves to play with his toys, especially his ball. His amazing ears have been know to pick up cell phone signals, CB radio, some satellite TV channels, as well as an emergency broadcast signals for tsunamis. Haha. Hammy, or Hamlin, still needs some leash work for his pulling at times, would do best in a home in a quiet area, he is best suited as the only dog in the home. He can make doggy friends, but he needs to go slow and be introduced properly. He is insecure about other dogs at first until he knows them, and he prefers to be the dominant one in any pack. So for a home he will need to be the only dog is what we feel is best, but he has lived with other dogs before, including small breeds and large breeds. Hamlin loves to go for walks, hikes and all sorts of adventures. He will need a experienced owner with time, understanding and strength. Even know he’s a little guy, he’s power packed when he wants to be. He isn’t much of a barker at all, and really gives unconditional love to people. Hamlin is prey driven, so no cats please.

Memo prefers a quiet home with another dog or dogs around his size, he opens up to females first, and he is both pee pad and outdoor potty trained.

Meet Adoptable Hatch!

He is a major cuddler, hugger, and loves to give kisses He’s a tall and lean boy that can run like the wind and jump very high, with a funny personality to match. Hatch is good with other nice dogs and loves all sorts of people. Hatch can sometimes react back at a dog being rude to him. Here you see him with his foster sister Lucha. Hatch was once used as a hunting dog in Quebec, but wasn’t the best at it. He does have a prey drive for fast moving small animals like bunnies and squirrels, but is fine with nice small breed dogs. Hatch has had a couple traumatic experiences with a dog before, but has recovered and has kept his loving and gentle temperament and soul. Hatch would do best with very active people, that love to give affection, a home with a high fenced backyard that doesn’t have any cats or kids under 10. He’s just too big for small kids. This boy was rescued by us from a shelter Montreal, Quebec when the BSL law was still in effect, to which he was at risk of euthanasia.

This amazing boy really deserves the best home.
