Meet adoptable Molly!

Molly is a 12-13 year old, female, tri-colour, 45-50lb, mixed breed. This sweet senior girl is one of the coolest dogs you’ll ever meet and she has so much life left in her, you would never know she’s her age. Molly loves, loves, loves to play ball anytime of day and night. It’s her favorite thing in the world. Molly is a dog that just needs a nice and quiet home that likes to go for walks, simple hikes, and of course to throw her back for her, but she also likes to relax at home and just hangout and cuddle and nap. Molly does pretty good on leash and is fully house trained, and she is in good health as well. She would do best as the only dog in the home, she has made dog friends before, but she really prefers to be left alone by other dogs and we want to respect that. She just needs a nice and simple, no drama life retirement life of love. Will you be the one for Molly?

Adoptable Watson!

Here are some words from his foster dad:

Watson is a very affectionate dog who’s full of love to give and receive. He loves to cuddle and spend time with you as much as possible. Watson is good with other dogs, and he doesn’t become obsessive or need to go say hi to every dog he sees. He’s pretty laid back that way. Just be cautious when approaching other new dogs that are overly hyper because sometimes he lacks confidence and can give a little growl, he does good when approached calmly and respectfully. Watson is still a tad bit unsure with new people, but opens up incredibly fast if given treats and love, and he loves hikes, walks on the beach and running, just not in the rain. He’s not a fan. He is house trained, but might have a few accidents until he settles in to a new place. He doesn’t bark much unless people just walk into his place abruptly. He can sit, lie down and also shake a paw, but hasn’t much engaged with any toys yet. He does not like load noises such as vacuums, big bangs, fireworks, etc. Would not go in kennel the first day, haven’t tried since, and he’s been fine to roam the house while I am out and doesn’t chew anything or get into the garbage. He’s had great house manners and with some training, patience and more socializing, he will become a very well rounded dog.

Meet Adoptable Cliff!

Cliff is a year old, all black, male, 18-21lb, mixed breed. He looks very much like a mini Labrador, so if you like the look and sweet nature of the breed but don’t want the size, this dog is for you. Patience is needed as he is very timid at first and has to be completely comfortable with you before he shows his lovable self. He would do best in a quieter home and then slowly introduced into the rest of the world. He is crate trained and is good with other dogs, but can also be in a home without another dog. He is coming along really well on his house training and being proactive about taking him out for potty time will help limit any accidents. He hasn’t been exposed to children or cats, but with respectful cats he will make any relaxed home a great family addition. Cliff also suit retirees, as being a young dog he has a calm, gentle nature that isn’t too excitable.

Meet Adoptable Chi Chi!

Chi Chi is a 1 year old, male, black and brown, 22lb, mixed breed (Possible Formosan mix)
He 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, 9-10 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.

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.
