Meet Adoptable Lucky!

Lucky is a 4 year old, male, black and cream, 44lb, mixed breed. (Breeds unknown). This sweet boy is an absolute goofball who loves to get active and run around and play while enjoying life to the fullest, so he will need a fairly active human to help him get the exercise he needs each day. He has been around many dogs in his life and has always loved his humans and has shown no behavioral issues in that aspect, while craving affection and snuggles to the maximum, while also being a well relaxed boy after playtime. We have not had Lucky around a cat so we aren’t sure about Lucky and cats, but he has been very kind and loving to kids that are nice and respectful. He has never hurt another dog or human over his food, but he prefers to be left alone while eating and has growled at another dog if they get near his food while he is eating. Which can be common so discretion is advised while he is eating please.

Lucky was first found in a street market in Taiwan 2.5 years ago in bad shape with mange, but was rescued and brought back to great health. He was always kind to people even back then so we believe he was abandon by his owners on the street prior to his rescue. He has not been adopted in 2.5 years in Taiwan because he is a mixed breed and not attractable to people. We want to give this guy the life he truly deserves.

Meet Adoptable Chi Chi!

Chi Chi is a 1 year old, male, black and brown, 22lb, mixed breed (Possible Formosan mix)

Chi Chi is a very beautiful and sweet boy that has a very relaxed and laid back composure in the home. He is a very intelligent dog that can be quite timid at first, but relaxes and opens up well pretty quick with gentle pets and love. He is kind to people and even gentle kids, but would do best with relaxed home that is calm. Outside busy areas and loud noises can scare him at first and he can sometimes slightly panic and try to go each way from being nervous, but he can calm down and go for a nice walk in preferably quiet areas to start. He will need someone to go slow with him and watch he doesn’t try to escape out of the house in the beginning. He’s always been kind to other dogs, people and even strangers, as he lived with many dogs in a foster home in Taiwan. He would maybe do best in a home with a couple or a person that’s active, but relaxed. Even an older couple or person would suit his needs as well. Chi Chi has been around cats, but seems to be afraid of them and will hide if he is approached by them.

Chi Chi was abandoned in the park along with his other siblings. A lady who usually feeds the stray dogs in the park found them and took them in. They were all adopted soon after, however, Chi Chi was returned for being too kind to strangers. The family said he is not a great guard dog so they returned him. The lady would love to find him a home in Canada. He has a gentle soul and he definitely deserves better, a family with patience.

Meet Adoptable Blu!

Blu is a male, 6 year old, brindle and white, 55lb, Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Blu comes to us from Montreal, Canada and unfortunately his family has to move to Europe and he can’t come. So we are helping find him a new home in the next two weeks as time is of the essence. Blu is a really sweet boy that loves his family and two little best friends. Blu loves to swim and go for walks, hikes and all sorts of adventures. He is fully house trained and knows many commands. Blu can pull on leash at first but calms down within a few minutes. He has done so well with kids and small dogs. He can be fine with respectful female dogs as well, but he is reactive towards larger male dogs. The reason behind this is because Blu was attacked by a large breed male dog in the past and that left him with a nervousness of larger male dogs. Blu has never hurt another dog or person and has always been very gentle. We just suggest no large male dogs for Blu. With a responsible owner, positive reinforcement, counter conditioning, and a desensitization style of training we believe Blu is fully capable of trusting larger male dogs again. Consistent training will achieve this. He is very food motivated which has him running across the room for a treat, but he also is very smart and he can be trained and taught. This handsome boy really needs a new loving home before it’s too late.

If we can get a responsible foster here on Vancouver Island or in Vancouver we will fly him right out and to safety. We don’t want him to end up in a shelter in Quebec. He won’t last long there 😢.

Adoptable Daisy!

Daisy is a sweet 8 week old, female, brown and white, 13-15lb, possibly deaf, mixed breed. We have been told some Catahoula is in her genetics. She is a very playful and mischievous little girl that likes to play and then sleep, and repeat. Daisy can make quite the sounds when she wants to get attention. She will need an owner that can train her and understand her needs with being deaf. This can be a fairly easy task once you have the right knowledge of how to work with a deaf dog. This sweet baby and her brothers and sisters sadly lost their mom as she was very tragically hit by a car in the Port Renfrew region a few weeks ago. We also have noticed her back right foot and toes are slightly inverted to the left that is perhaps a genetic deformity we are told. The foot has evened out a bit over the last few weeks since she has been in our care.

This young girl loves to go for walks, hikes, adventures and all kinds of play. Marley will need some continued training to make her the best dog she can be. She has been very friendly with other dogs, people, respectful children and even all the cats she’s met. She’s just a lovely pup. Marley would be a great dog for any active home.

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, 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.

Please apply at raincoastdogrescue.com if you’re interested in fostering to adopt Bruce.

She has been friendly with the friendly dogs she has met, but won’t back down to a dog trying to challenge her. Suay has been good with the fosters kid and his friends, and with their Chihuahua. She was also with a lab in a home and did well. She just needs a few minutes to get to know a human first, as she can be nervous of new people and protective of her owners. 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.

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.
