Meet Adoptable Apollo!

Apollo is a beautiful 3 year old, male, brown and black, 110 lb, purebred European Doberman. This boy was born on Vancouver Island. He has had two owners in his life so far. Apollo is a very sweet boy that has always gotten along with people and other nice dogs. He’s a strong, adventurous, and active boy that loves to get outside and run and play. He is house trained and does well left alone, but does not like the crate. He has been fine left out in the house alone. He can sometimes pull on leash and does need some help with leash training, as well as someone with Doberman or large breed expedience. We are looking for a very active adopter that has the time and willingness to put in the training and care needed for this beautiful boy. For now we are asking for no kids please. But! Apollo has always liked kids and has been living with two kids for over 1.5 years now. He is just a big baby that loves affection and gives it back ten fold. Apollo thinks he’s a lap dog and he loves sleeping on the bed with you as well if he gets the chance. At the beginning of the year Apollo tore his ACL and was taken in for surgery for it, and he has since fully recovered and the vet specialist that did the surgery is very happy and confident with Apollo’s successful recovery.

The thing that we are now working with Apollo on is he has growled a few times over a possession recently to his owners and then had given one snap as well at the mother over a sock. This was all over a possession, but also while possibly being already overstimulated. Apollo has no history of biting or lashing out, ever. Just recently a few minor incidents of lashing out. Apollo will be fully assessed by Rescue Me K9 this weekend, September 23rd, and then we will add more information to his profile. For now this is the information given to us from his previous owners.

Meet Adoptable Cliff and Buster!

Buster is a 1 year old, male, tan and white, Chihuahua mix. Cliff is a 1 year old, male, all black, Dachshund mix. Both weight under 20 Lbs. These sweet boys are very bonded, especially Cliff to Buster, so we are trying to keep them together. They love their outdoor yard time to play and hangout in, and enjoy some nice simple walks on leash around the neighborhood, and then to cuddle up inside and just hangout with you. They are a tad shy at first, but they open up well and really do like attention and affection. They have been good with other dogs that are nice to them and they have been fine with meeting new people, slowly. They would do best in a relaxed home to start, and then they can be slowly introduced into the rest of the world. They are potty trained, but a few accidents in the first few days is possible. Being proactive about taking them out for potty time in the first week will help limit any accidents. We are not sure about them with young children under 7 or cats yet, we have yet to expose them to any. This handsome pair will make a great family addition to a relaxed home.

Meet Adoptable Duke!

Duke, or Sir Dukes, is a senior dog, coming in around 11 years old, has a black and brown coat, is about 55-60lbs, male, German Shepard X.

We found Sir Dukes at a shelter in horrible condition. Someone did not take very good care of him at all. Despite his smiling and positive demeanor, he was riddled with skin and ear infections, pneumonia, dental problems leading to mass extractions, coughing, lethargic and had fatty masses that needed to be surgically removed. This sweet boy was really suffering and we wanted to give him another chance at life. Give him the retirement he deserves. After over 1.5 months of treatments and surgeries and thousands of dollars, Duke has made a great recovery and is deemed a healthy boy! We couldn’t be happier as we didn’t know if he would make it. We can’t stand seeing senior dogs dumped at shelters. It’s just heartbreaking.

This sweet boy is dog friendly and people friendly. Sir Dukes has a zest for life and loves to smile. He’s still gaining some of his hair back, but he’s all ready for his new life of love and adventure. He just wants to go for nice walks and small hikes, sniff the bushes and flowers, and snuggle up back at home. Duke will make any relaxed home a great family addition. Sir Dukes-a-lot likes big mutts and he cannot lie. Haha.

If you’re interested in giving Duke the love and retirement home he so deserves, to foster to foster to adopt, please message us and apply at: raincoastdogrescue.com


Meet Adoptable Bruce!

Bruce is a black, male, 17 lb, Terrier mix. Bruce is a very funny boy that loves to run around in the backyard and play with his toys, go for walks and little adventures, and to just snuggle. Bruce is best suited in a single dog home with no kids, and someone with dog experience, patience and time. He really is a sweet boy, but he can be tricky at times. He has bitten people and other dogs before. We know to most this sounds bad, and we don’t condone it, but he has gotten better, but his triggers aren’t very clear sometimes. People must be aware if they are having people over, not letting him off leash in public, and not allowing kids or cats around him. He just needs one owner that understands certain dog behaviors and are willing to just keep things simple for him. We just hope someone out there can give him another chance at life, as he doesn’t have many options out there for him. He is being surrendered back to us after a year.

Meet Adoptable Suay!

This lovely girl comes to us from Southern Vancouver Island and she is a beauty! Suay is a 11 month old, female, 50-55 lb, cream and black, Shepard mix. Suay is a very sweet girl that was an owner surrender, as they just didn’t have the time she needed. She seems to be friendly with nice dogs of all sizes, she’s good with people, but hasn’t had much exposure to children, so children under 10 for now will be a bit too much for her. Suay in a foster home with a female chihuahua and a young teenager, who’s she’s now warming up too nicely. She just needs a few minutes to get to know you first as she can be a bit timid of new people. Suay likes to run, play, and go for adventures of all kinds. She is learning leash manners and she’s a very smart girl, so she will learn fast. Suay will need an active outdoor lifestyle home with someone who can continue to train her so she can become the best doggy she can be. We haven’t had her around cats at all yet and she isn’t spayed. We will be getting her spayed in the next week or so, so for now we will just have meetings with potential adopters until she’s spayed. This baby girl is now patiently awaiting her forever home.

Adoption Pending..

Harry and Megan are two sibling, tan, black and white, male and female, Beagle X pups. They are 9 months old, Harry being 18 lbs and Megan being 15bs. They are bonded, but can be separated if needed, but of course we would prefer they stay together. These two cuties are super funny and sweet pups. Harry and Megan can be a tad shy at first, but enjoy playing with nice doggies and people, going for walks and small hikes, playing with some toys in the yard, or just snuggling up on the couch with you to relax once their settled in. They are still puppies so they have been doing great with their house training, but may still need a tad of help with their house training and basic commands. They are very smart. Harry and Megan would do well in an active home that has time to train and exercise them daily. We have not had them around cats yet, just other dogs and people so far. These two puppers are now patiently awaiting their forever home!

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.

Hatch is a 2-2.5 year old, male, 60- 65 lb, brindle, American Staffy X Greyhound. Hatch is one of the most gentle and loving souls you will ever meet. 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.
