Meet Adoptable Dallas!

Dallas is a 4 year old, male, brown and white, 55-60lb, American Staffordshire Terrier, mixed breed. Dallas is just a big hearted, funny personality, silly goofball of a dog. He will make anybody laugh and smile with his personality. He loves to get and show love, but still learning what cuddling is, believe it or not. The poor boy was never used to affection before we rescued him. Dallas likes to go for walks, hikes and adventures, and he is getting better with leash manners daily while on walks with his foster mom, he has done pretty good at home with not being destructive at all so far, unless it’s to his toys, and has been good in his kennel when he’s left alone. He had a couple pee accidents the first few days but that has come to an end, it was probably a little basic, male marking. He has been shown to have a good temperament towards people and other dogs, he just wants to say hello and play. Dallas will need help with learning some social skills with playing and not getting too excited, as he tends to just barrel around with energy while playing, but there are times he can be very relaxed too when playing, and can relax with other dogs. He is obsessed with his toys, and we mean obsessed! He loves to play with toys, almost any kind, but certain ones he chooses become his very favorite, and he will do anything you ask him to do if you have that toy in your hand. You could bring it with you on a walk and if he ever got loose, he would come back so fast to you if you have that toy as he is that attached to them. Dallas will need someone to continue training with him to make him the best well rounded doggy he can be, but he wants to learn. We are kindly requesting because of his size and roughhouse playing type of nature that he only be with kids 12 and up, no cats as he loves to chase them, and others dogs would be ok in the home, but preferably a female as it tends to go best. Unless it’s a male that’s not the same age, gender or breed. Thank you. This handsome fella is now patiently awaiting his new forever home.

Meet Adoptable Ziggy and Ozzy!

Ziggy and Ozzy are two all black, 1.5-2 year old, males, 12-14lb, Chihuahua, Dachshund, mixed breeds. These two super adorable best friends or brothers, we don’t really know, are a whole bunch of fun and excitement. Ziggy and Ozzy love to rip around the house and play with one another and their toys. They are super affectionate and cuddly, but also love to relax on their own too. Ziggy and Ozzy are primarily house / potty trained at this point, but may need a bit of help in the first few days in a new place, and they do well left in their kennel while people are out. They do alright on leash, they tend to go a little this way and that way, but they do go for walks and seem to be fine with a leash and harness on. These guys for now will just be enjoying basic walks in a relaxed neighborhood until they can be more desensitized to some larger and more busy areas. They tend to bark at other dogs while on leash outside from overstimulation, but we believe they will settle fine as the days go by.
A fenced backyard would be nice for them to have, but it’s not necessary. We think respectful kids may be ok for them, we are not sure about cats, and other dogs would be ok as well once they get to know them properly. These two handsome fellas can be adopted together or apart, they seem fine either way. Perhaps just another dog in the home if apart.
They now are ready for their new home and life.

Meet Adoptable Remy!

Remy is a 3 year old, male, 15-17lb, black and brown, Min Pin, mixed breed. Remy is a pretty funny and silly boy that likes to follow you around, get attention, cuddles, lay where he pleases, play, go for walks and adventures, or just nap it out. He does pretty good on leash but can still use some training with that. Remy has been good with other dogs on leash for the most part, but some days he is a little barky and overstimulated by other dogs as well. It’s been hit and miss, but no aggression. He lives with another small breed dog right now and does just fine. This boy would do good with someone who can give him medium to highly active exercise, another dog or not would be ok, maybe kids 8 and over, and no cats please.

Meet Adoptable Bugsy!

Bugsy is a 4 year old, male, all white, 10-12 lb, Chihuahua, mixed breed. Bugsy is a very sweet boy that can be a bit shy and timid at first, but warms up pretty quick in a nice and quiet home. He does well in the home and is very relaxed and quiet for the most part. Bugsy loves to just relax in your lap, on the couch or in his dog bed. He does alright in walks and likes to sniff around and explore, but he gets nervous when other dogs run up on him on walks. Bugsy is good with other dogs, he just likes them to go slow. He would do best in a quiet and relaxed home, with only one or two persons, no kids, cats and another gentle dog would be fine. Bugsy came from the streets where he wasn’t treated so well by someone that had him, but he is doing a lot better now. This sweet and gentle boy would love to find his forever home where he can just relax and take it easy without lots of noises or busyness.

We are looking for a special foster home for these two guys, Lionel and Charlie Brown. They seem to be a bonded pair that feel safest only when with one another. Lionel and Charlie Brown are really quite timid and shut down at this time and need a very quiet and patient home to open up in. A home that is with one or two humans max, possibly retired or part time work that has access to a very secure fenced in yard, as these two have no house training, leash training and have possibly never been on a real walk. They panic at even the feeling of a leash and being picked up so it’s going to be slow for them to gain confidence in this area. We have had them for less than two weeks so we know they can open up, it will just take time.

Please message us if you feel you have the time and patience to hangout with these two handsome fellas while they gain confidence and get desensitization.


Meet Adoptable Luna!

Luna is a 2 year old, female, 50-55lb, all black, Formosan Mountain Dog, mixed breed. Luna came to us as a puppy and has recently been surrendered back to us and an adult, so she has had house training. Luna is a very sweet and intelligent girl, that is also very shy and timid at first. She takes a while to warm up to you, but she will allow you to pet her and take her for a walk, which she enjoys, she just doesn’t start to show affection to you until she settles in and that could take a few days or more. When she does open up, she’s really sweet. Luna is very quiet in the home for the most part and she does well left alone. She has been around other dogs and seems to be doing fine for the most part, but she can be shy of some dogs or just doesn’t want to meet them. Luna would do best in a very relaxed home with someone who has patience and time, likes to go for nice walks and little hikes, that doesn’t have a lot of visitors. This naturally cautious girl with a gentle heart and demeanor is now patiently awaiting her forever home.

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


Meet Adoptable Joey and Nina!

Hey everyone! We are taking on these two, local island girls that are super sweet, senior, Chihuahua mixes. Unfortunately, their dad passed away and the family at this time does not have the ability to take them on long term, so we will be helping find them a new forever home. These two senior lovelies have been together for 12 years and really just need a nice relaxed home to retire in. We are hoping to adopt them out together.
This is Joey, she is a 12 year old female, tan and white trim, 6-8 lb, Chihuahua/Terrier mix. Joey is a very intelligent and loving girl that just wants to follow you around and cuddle up beside you. She does not like being left alone and will bark in the home when left alone for the first bit. Joey likes to chase things randomly so best she is on a leash. However, they have started taking her to the off leash dog park and she does great. But, if you are just sitting around and someone walks by she may bark and run for them. She is all bark and no bite, but still, you need to be mindful of it. She gets Nina going too so they can be double trouble, but they’re so small they are easily controlled on leash. If Nina is by herself without Joey on a walk, you rarely hear a peep out of her. Nina just loves everyone.

This is Nina, she is a 12 year old, female, 10lb, white with brown spots, Chihuahua/ Chinese Crested mixed breed. She is a total cuddle bug and is very well behaved in the house and outside. She’s very easy to manage and to care for. Nina byJust pet her tummy all day and she is a happy girl, she really is a great little doggy.

Meet Adoptable Mina!

Mina is a 2.5 year old, female, 35-40lb, black with white trim, paraplegic, Formosan mixed breed. Mina is a sweet girl with so much zest for life and fun! She likes to be around other dogs and play, or just relax in the sun on the grass or on her bed out outside. She loves to cuddle on the couch or play with her toys on the floor. Mina is housebroken and she does well left alone in the home. She can be a bit shy at first when she meets you, but she warms up pretty good, more so after a few times or if she lives with you then she is really affectionate. Mina actually can walk around really well with her two front legs while dragging her back feet with booties on, and she loves to run around the yard at full speed when playing with other dogs or feeling frisky, and she really can move fast when she wants too. She quite a functional dog that likes to go for walks and light trail hikes in her wheelchair and she functions well in it for up to 2-3 hours a day if she’s out and about. She just shouldn’t really be using it more than 2-3 hours in a day. Mina can also use one of her back legs to hold herself up sometimes, but it’s not fully functional and the other leg is pretty much non functional. She was found in the mountains already in this paraplegic condition with dragging her back legs and she also had 3 of her puppies with her at the time. We believe an industrial truck hit her back end causing her condition and shortly after being rescued she did have a surgery on her back left hip where her femur was removed, and three to four months of rehabilitation done. She can still slowly over time gain more feeling back there, we will only know in time. Her puppies have already been adopted out. Mina would do best in a home with another dog or two that are playful and respectful, preferable someone who works part time, from home or retired, kids 8 and up or no kids, cats ok, that has a nice fenced in backyard as well with some grass or all grass. She really one of the sweetest and coolest dogs.

Meet Adoptable Sage! (Foster home needed)

This beautiful 18 month old, 50lb, brindle, Staffordshire Bull Terrier X is a local island girl that is such a love! Sage is so sweet and playful with people and other dogs, but does need to learn play boundaries. She is a really energetic girl that will need a steady exercise and training regiment to help her become a well rounded dog. She does pull on leash right now but does settle down a bit after the first 10 minutes of the walk, so she will need a strong owner. Sage is not currently spayed, but will be fairly soon. So we are looking for a foster home for her with no other dogs, cats, or kids right now, not because she’s not good with them, but because she’s not fixed yet and we would like to get to know her even better without variables in play. She would do best in a home with very active person or persons that have the time to place in solid training and exercise. This love bug is now patiently awaiting her forever home.

Please apply at raincoastdogrescue.com if you’re interested in fostering or fostering to adopt Sage. (Adoption only after spay is done)


Meet Adoptable Gordon!

Gordon is a 4 year old, male, 38lb, tri- colour, Beagle and Basset hound mix. Gordon Is such a cool dog that loves to get outside and go for walks, hikes and all sorts of adventures where the sniffs never end. This boy loves his scents! He does walk with a little bit of a weird front step as he once tragically got his paw caught in a hunters snare trap and then we was dumped by the owner because of the injury. He was used as a hunting dog. Luckily he was rescued and he’s fully recovered and he is good to go! He doesn’t seem to be too prey driven in any aspect, even after being used for hunting for a little while. Gordon is a very friendly boy with people, respectful kids and other dogs, and has even shown to be quite tolerant with cats. He would do great in a medium to high energy home with some good exercise daily. Hounds can be know to be vocal dogs and Gordon hasn’t been too frequent with that type of behavior, but he can and any new family will want to take that into account. He currently resides in a foster home in Vancouver at the moment, but can be adopted in Vancouver or on Vancouver Island. This handsome boy is now patiently awaiting his new forever home!
