Luka

  • Breed: Retriever X
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 1
  • Weight: 50 lb
  • Needs: Very active, Adults & Older Kids, Good with Cats

Hi everyone, my name is Luka and I’m one years old. I’m kind of beautiful if I do say so myself! I know it’s not nice to brag but I just couldn’t help it.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m housetrained, calm in the house and like to cuddle. I’m still a big puppy at heart though and have lots of energy. I’m getting better at walking on the leash thingy and on my basic obedience and manners. I can be a bit mouthy at times and I have a big bark but I’m not aggressive. There’s something very important I have to share with you. I’m called a ‘flight risk’ which means I have a very strong impulse to run away so I could very well have to be on a leash at all times. My recall isn’t great but it has improved thanks to my lovely foster mom! I can also jump pretty high so you will need to have a safely fenced yard for me. Right now I need 3 good outings a day or I can get really bored. Did I tell you that I can also clear most gates in the house? I think I’m a frustrated Olympian.

Sorry to be so demanding but my good looks will make up for the few negative things I have going on. It’s important for me to go to a family that have experience and the time to continue on with my training. Because of my puppy nature, small kids wouldn’t be a good idea. I tend to be wary and uncomfortable when guests come into my house (especially men) so that’s something I need to work on. My instinct is to run to get away. I’m sure someone scared me in my past but I’m trying to overcome this. I’m better when I’m on my leash meeting people outside before they come in.

On a positive note, I seem to really like cats and have been sharing a bed with one in my foster home. Yay for me!

Sooooo…….do you think you can find it in your heart to love me forever and work with me so I can be your perfect forever loving pup? If so, please apply for me and my adoption coordinator will get back to you ASAP.

Love,

Luka

Finn

  • Breed: Lab/Husky X
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 6 months
  • Weight: 40 lb
  • Needs: Good with dogs

FOR ADOPTION: What a difference a month makes.

Handsome Finn joined us via the IFAW Northern Dog Project last month. His history is here: https://bit.ly/2JLATOg

He was hit by a school bus and endured some horrific injuries. He was rushed to Toronto and brought to Caledon Mountain Veterinary Hospital​ where Dr. John performed multiple surgeries to repair the damage, namely FHO surgery, a plate in his Tibia and a plate in his Pelvis. Finn’s prognosis is excellent and he is now ready for his forever home.

He is as delightful as a 6 month old puppy always is, as sweet as can be and will morphe into a stellar adult as he possesses a stellar temperament and an equally lovely personality.

A true jem of a pup this Chocolate Lab and Husky mix will need to have his exercise needs met and a family who will love and adore him.

He has been waiting patiently for his adoption debut and is so excited he’s been working out in the home gym with his coveted kettle ball seen on his pic.

Please contact his adoption coordinator, Nicole, to learn how you can adopt this divine pup.

Bentley

  • Breed: Lhasa Apso / Shih Tzu
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 6 years
  • Weight: 20 lb
  • Needs: Good with dogs and children

My name is Bentley and I have had quite the journey and story to tell. My family decided to leave me with a friend, promising me that they would see me soon. Well I am not sure how long soon is, but the next thing I knew, I was at the shelter, being poked and prodded, as I was sick and left in isolation with this thing called kennel cough. Lots of people coming and going and so many other dogs! Then suddenly, I was picked up by a lovely lady, who promised me lots of love, good food and a real home. And you know what? She has kept her word. She and her family spend lots of time with me, giving me lots of wonderful belly rubs, gave me a bath, sent me for a major haircut-I am loving this new place and all this attention.
I even have a foster sister, who I try to play with, but she is not interested in getting to know me, no matter how hard I try. And there is a another thing they love even more than me, a baby! He is just a bit bigger than me and also smells great and wants to touch me all the time, so I let him.
I am doing my best to show them how good a dog I can be. I bark as soon as I see someone come close to the house. I love to sit in the window and watch everything, so if anyone even comes close, I bark to warn my family. I am eager to meet other dogs and like to go for short walks. And I just love going for car rides! In fact, I just love doing everything with my family, sharing the couch, following them around and I could never have imagined a life this good!

Despite approaching middle age, I am embracing my new life and can not wait for what my foster mom promises is coming soon-house, a family to love, to protect and to share my space with.

Alejandro

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 10
  • Weight: 2.4 kg
  • Needs: Good with dogs

This tiny little man found as a stray and never claimed at our local shelter. He joins us in need of extensive dental work.

As a senior, he was not doing well in a shelter environment and needed the stability of a foster home to really settle in. This very affectionate 10 year old Chihuahua loves his people and bonds quickly. He likes to socialize with big dogs and is rather indifferent to small dogs but considers larger dogs his own personal jungle gym.

When he goes on walks?
The swagger is to die for.
He walks with such pride showing off all 2.5 kg of himself.

He is house trained, loves his bed, but most of all, loves his humans.

Please welcome, Alejandro, to our rescue.

If you are interested in learning more, please submit an application or contact Kathy, his Adoption Coordinator at adopt@teamdogrescue.ca.

Goldie

  • Breed: Golden Retriever
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 8
  • Weight: 22 kg
  • Needs: Good with dogs and children

Hello, my name is Goldie, and I am golden! I am a senior Golden Retriever, not sure of my age as I came to the great people at TEAM as a stray. They say I am a senior, so 8 years plus, but you would never know it.

My wonderful foster Mum says I am “such a good girl”. All I really want is love, pets, and cuddles! I am low maintenance, fully house trained, walk nicely on leash, and know the sit command. I am not interested in toys, but love the treats. You can leave me on my own, and loose in the home, and I will not be destructive. Of course, I would prefer to be your shadow, follow you around, to make sure I do not miss out on a cuddle or pet! I am one chilled, docile, independent lady!

I am good with other dogs, and dog savvy children. I love my foster sis, and I give her lots of kisses. I would enjoy having another dog or children in the home. It is important the children are dog savvy.

I am a low to medium energy dog, who enjoys going for walks. While walking, I have a cute spring in my step. One fault I have, but only one, is when I meet people or other dogs, I am just so keen to greet them. I am working as hard as I can, to meet dogs and people politely. I would enjoy being part of your family, and going through the day with you.

That sums it up for me! Pretty good eh! I hope to worm my way into your heart! I know you will not regret it.

Bye for now!

Blue

  • Breed: Chow / American Bulldog X
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 1 year
  • Weight: 23 kg
  • Needs: Good with dogs & cats

Have you been looking for a young, fun-loving pup to join your family? That is me, my name is Blue. and I am a 14 month old bulldog-chow mix. Things didn’t start out so great for me , but since being in foster care with TEAM, my life has turned a big corner.

My foster Mum tells me I am a very sweet boy. I can make friends with nearly any dog. I pick up new habits and routines quickly, and am eager to please my people! And, I am low shedding! Pretty good, eh!

My forever home will need someone who is firm but loving with me, and continues my on-going training and guidance as I am so young.. Without it, my puppy behaviour comes out! Using tools such as a crate and giving regular exercise has improved my separation anxiety immensely. I am now comfortable with indoor cats. They can even wrestle in front of me, and I basically ignore them. Best to have children who are 12+, dog savvy and mature. Younger children are typically unpredictable and don’t know how to give a dog space. I become uncomfortable when this happens.

My foster Mum tells me, it is time to move on to my furever home. I hope you will open up your heart to let me in. You will not regret it, as I will be your snuggle bunny and companion. Hoping to hear from you soon!

Shelby

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 10
  • Weight: 9.5 lb
  • Needs: Adult-only home, no cats

THE DOWNWARD DOG: I am practising my yoga poses and trying to find my inner peace. You see, my pal and I were surrendered to a shelter. I (Shelby) am 10 years young. You can find our history here: http://bit.ly/2LguPAw

Being a tiny pooch weighing in at a whopping 9.43 pounds, from my perspective, the world is a huge place. You never know what might be coming. So I can’t help but try to defend myself. Any strangers that come to my house, I like to tell them who’s in charge (me) and that they better behave. My foster parents tell me that I am now in a safe place and don’t always have to defend myself – I love them but I don’t know if I trust everyone else. It takes time for me to really start to trust new people. Until then, I will bark at them to my heart’s content (or until they give me treats).

I am full of energy and love going on walks! I also like to steal my friend Chico’s bed and food. He can’t see or hear very well, so I take advantage of that (insert evil laugh here). But Chico got the last laugh because I’ve put on some extra weight and now have to eat special food to get back in shape. Since being in the foster home, I have already lost some weight. Speaking of food, I have sensitive teeth and went to the canine dentist for a cleaning and extractions. I only had to have a few extractions done and I’m already feeling better.

I love my foster parents even though I was a bit wary of them when I first met them. Now, I wait for my foster dad to return home from work so we can go on another walk. I was afraid of him at first because he’s a man, but now I really like him. He is very patient and kind with me, and likes to give me treats. If every man I met was like my foster dad, I would have nothing to fear!

Being a small girl in a big world, I really hope that my new family will take the time to understand me. I would like to be the only dog in the home – I won’t mind sharing my home with Chico because he and I have lived together for so many years. But I can sometimes bully him (he’s bigger than me so he can take it!), and I will definitely bully other dogs. I would like an adult-only home – you see, in my experience, kids can be very energetic and loud and not respect my space, so I don’t love being around them. I am a firm believer that cats and dogs cannot be friends so no cats, please.

I know I seem to be asking for a lot, but I’m worth it. I’ve mastered the ‘downward dog’ pose and will be happy to teach my new family. I am a spunky little girl and I can’t wait to meet my new family. Together, we shall terrorize cats, and play pranks on Chico.

Chico

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 12
  • Weight: 12 lb
  • Needs: Good with dogs, no cats

THE PERFECT GENTLEMAN: Look no further, I am here! A 14-year old, male, chihuahua mix looking for someone to love.

I joined the rescue along with my friend, Shelby, because unfortunately, as much as my human loved us, they were no longer able to take good care of Shelby and I so they surrendered us to a local shelter, where I lived for a little bit until TEAM found a foster for us. I have to admit that I love my foster parents! My foster mom works from home so I like that there is someone who is always around. You see, now that I’m getting up there in age, I cannot see and do not hear very well. My world is sometimes filled with darkness so it scares me when I think I am by myself. It makes me cry until my foster parents assure me that they are with me.

Being blind and partially deaf does not slow me down though. The other day, I overheard my foster parents tell my adoption coordinator about how smart I am. In just a few days, I figured out where everything is around the house so I do not bump into things. I also know my neighbourhood very well and can find my way home. When my foster parents want to get my attention, they just have to raise their voice a little or tap their foot on the floor and I run to them!

I enjoy my walks, but I do get tired quickly so I will tell you when I have finished walking and want to return home. I love people and cuddles. I really like my friend Shelby, even though she steals my bed and sometimes my food, however she and I are not bonded even though we lived together previously. I prefer human company over canine. Dogs are fine and all, but humans are in charge of pats and treats so that’s where I want to be!

My ideal family will be one where there is someone home all the time, or where I can go to work with my parent(s). I am small, and can live in any type of house but because I cry when I get scared, a house that does not have shared walls will be ideal so I don’t disturb my neighbours. My family will have to be careful with stairs in the house – although I can navigate my environment very well, sometimes I forget where the stairs are and the other day, I accidentally fell down (I didn’t hurt myself). So a house that did not have stairs, or stairs that could be blocked off will be best for me. I like other dogs just fine as well.

Medically speaking, I am in good health for a 14-year old dog. I have a mild heart murmur and TEAM sent me to see a cardiologist and my report is pleasantly surprising. My heart is still delivering enough blood and I don’t need to start any medications! I should however have a low salt diet, no processed human food, and exercise will always have to be light and not strenuous.

Being blind, doesn’t mean I am not deserving.

Please contact my adoption coordinator, Gurleen, at adopt@teamdogrescue.ca to learn more about the difference I can make to your life and home.

Love,
Chico

Myla

  • Breed: Lab X
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 7 months
  • Weight: 50 lb
  • Needs: Good with dogs, prefers another dog in the home

This beautiful 7 month old lab mix was abandoned at a local shelter. We know her past was an unsavoury one with claims of abuse and neglect.

She is insecure and requires a great deal of confidence building, we are thankful she is learning how to be a dog while attending doggie daycare and is learning to be fearless by the power of a pick of balanced dogs. She is doing wonderfully.

She is young and impressionable and will get past this with an owner who will be understanding with her and will continue to learn and thrive if she had a canine pal to look up to in the household.

She will get there in no time at all. She is proving to be a quick study and a stellar companion.

Please welcome, Myla, to our rescue.

YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR ME… I know you have. I see you sifting through Rescue and Petfinder looking for a good boy. I’ve got my eye on you, yes you, the bulldog enthusiast who wants nothing more then to be graced by a squishy face and equally adorable underbite.

Come hither.

I am here.

I am 7 years old and was surrendered to a local shelter in the month of May. I am an exceptional boy, with exceptional behavioural traits with lots of love to give.

Leo

  • Breed: Shih Tzu
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 14 years
  • Weight: 15 lb
  • Needs: Good with dogs

60 days ago, Leo was found as a stray. He is 14 years old. And nobody came looking for him. We were asked to take him knowing his medical care would come at a steep cost as his initial medical assessment at the shelter was grim, he was very underweight, he had missing patches of fur. amongst other issues.

Leo joined us with a heart murmur, we ensured he had a visit with a cardiologist, and confirmed his heart murmur is mild, his blood pressure is good, he will not require meds. Leo’s mouth was riddled with infection, and a horrid odor due to the decay and had 15 diseased teeth removed.
Leo?
Has defied the odds and is infact good shape for a dog his age

It has been 60 days since Leo went unclaimed as a stray, he has gained weight, his fur has grown in, and his medical needs now tended to, he is now ready for a family of his very own. Leo is a tiny little shih tzu, who needs someone to wrap him up in compassion and love, just like his foster mom pictured here, Gail, does every single day. Thank you Gail, for playing such an instrumental role in nurturing Leo back to health.

He is a good boy, who is so deserving, and he is now ready.

Please contact Leo’s adoption coordinator, Gurleen, at adopt@teamdogrescue.ca if you would like to offer Leo his retirement home.

Beck

  • Breed: Saluki X
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 9 months
  • Weight: 40 lbs
  • Needs: Good with dogs & children

Hi, my name is Beck and I have recently arrived from the Kingdom of Bahrain and despite my initial timidness, am now eagerly embracing life here in Toronto. I soon learned that everyone here loves dogs, unlike what it was like being a street dog, having to dodge the rocks thrown, cars and poison.
I am meeting lots of other dogs, kids who give me treats and am off now to a place my foster family are calling “the cottage”, where apparently there will be even more dogs to play with. And my foster family wonders if I can swim? I am not sure what swimming means but if the other dogs do it, I guess I will give it a go as I hate missing out on any playtime.

Did I mention, I love to play? Doesn’t matter who with-other dogs or my human family. I love my human family. They feed me, give me lots of treats and and I want to stay with them forever. But they keep saying that there is someone else out there for me-my real family.
I can’t wait to meet them, but I sure hope they have a fenced yard, and some nice kids to play with me. Another dog would be nice, as I really love Cici, but I wouldn’t mind being the only pupper, and get all the attention.

I am doing very well with my housetraining, walk extremely well on the leash, absolutely love car rides (as that means there is a new place ahead to explore!), enjoy my crate at bed time and would love to be as close as possible with my “forever family” the rest of the time, as I just love to snuggle and cuddle.

My forever family should also be willing to take me to some classes so that I can be the best “canine companion” and a proud addition to the family.
I am a very happy pup, love being here in Canada and can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring.

Oh Husky lovers….come hither.

We have a gem for you.

This 2 year old boy was flown down to a local shelter all the way from Nunavut, where unfortunately he spent the first 2 years being a chained dog with very little freedoms. Thankfully he was rescued and brought to Ontario due to overcrowding for his second chance at life.

He in a foster home where he is thoroughly enjoying the company of his 2 foster Husky sisters, obeying the demands of the 5 pound Yorkshire Terrier alpha of the household, and is truly fascinated by the cat. He is learning what it means to be in a home and is a quick study.

Freedom, looks good on him.

He is wonderful and once you get to know him, you too will agree.

Jeffrey

  • Breed: Great Dane x Hound
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 3- 5 years
  • Weight: 100 lbs
  • Needs: Good with dogs

My name is Jeffrey (pretty cool name, right?)

I’m a 3.5 year old Great Dane Hound mix and I am a very big boy as a result, weighing approximately 100lbs! And in even better news I come with an equally big heart. Although I’m part hound, I can go off lead and I am not vocal.

My foster mom feels like I am a pretty laid back dude. I’m fantastic on leash and walk like a dream.

I would benefit from having a canine playmate as i really enjoy some good ol’ fashion play. Aside from playing and going out for walks, i also enjoy snuggling with my humans at the top of my list but a close second are hikes, belly scratches, and a bone to chew on.

I like most people and dogs however, I’m sometimes uncomfortable with some new people and pups, it doesn’t happen often but the rescue feels it best that i shouldn’t live with young children as a result.

I’m presently in doggie daycare by day and having a grand time so meet and greets can easily be arranged so you can see me in action. I am often described as a good boy, and easy going, a couch potato and a deep sleeper and ridiculously handsome.

I’m the whole package.

Please contact my adoption coordinator, Jackie, at adopt@teamdogrescue.ca to learn more about how I will be the best thing that has happened to you.

Enzo

  • Breed: Sharpei / Beagle / Boxer X
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 5 years
  • Weight: 50 lb
  • Needs: TBD

I LIKE BIG MUTTS AND I CANNOT LIE! Are you looking for someone special? One of a kind, even? Do you have an eye for the unique? No pedigree necessary to impress you, “mixed” is your breed of choice.

Well, look no further! My name is Enzo, I’m 5 years old and the most loveable mutt you’ll ever meet. Picture this: the squishy face of a boxer, the wrinkles of a sharpei, the nose of a beagle, the underbite of a bulldog, and the size (and knack for tricks) of a border collie. Sounds adorable, right? I guarantee you, none of the other neighbourhood dogs will be serving a look quite like this!

But hey, I’m more than just my good looks. Here are a few things that are great about me:

– I am 100% house-trained
– I’m a great roommate – very respectful of your stuff. You shoes, socks and sofas will be safe! Just give me some toys to play with and I will happily entertain myself!
– I am a very good boy home alone by myself. I’ll lie down, watching the door while you’re at work, patiently waiting for you to come home
– I am medium energy – I love a good walk as much as the next guy, but am just as happy lying by your feet while you watch Netflix
– I am a genius! Guys, I know how to roll over! I also know sit, down, paw, stay, look and off – to name a few.
– I am not a big shedder, your vaccuum will hardly notice I’m here!
– I’m a really nice guy. I love to make my foster family feel appreciated for getting me out of the shelter, and show them by giving kisses, rolling over for belly rubs, and getting up to lie down by their feet every time they move.

Pretty impressive, right?

Although my foster family tells me I’m darn near perfect, I’m into self improvement, so here are a few things I’m working on:

– I get so excited about walkies and like to follow my nose (the smells in this city man, they’re awesome!), so I’ve been working on my leash manners. I have been learning about leash pressure and practicing my ‘heel’ (and am getting better every day)
– When I first got to my foster home, I would get a little too excited about seeing other dogs out on my walks (came on a bit strong, you know?). I’m getting much better at “playing it cool” and walking right past them! Off leash, I’m very respectful and have good manners with dogs, but probably haven’t been around them a ton. I’ve been told I am a bit “socially awkward” and can be a third wheel when other dogs are playing (I’m a bit unsure of how exactly to join in the fun… but I’m trying!)
– I like to chase squirrels… working on that one too, but they’re so hard to resist!

I’m really not picky when it comes to finding my family – all I’m looking for is someone to love unconditionally! I’d be happy in an apartment or a home. Totally cool to live with adults or older kids. Could be the only dog in the house or would be cool to share a family with another chill canine sibling. Full disclosure – cats aren’t reallyyy my jam (they’re just so fun to chase!).

That sums me up! Get your applications in quick everyone, because I’m telling you, with a face like this, how could I not find my furever family soon?

Love,
Enzo

Toque

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 1
  • Weight: 7 lb
  • Needs: Good with dogs

Hi everyone! Introducing Toque, who, as his name suggests, is a true Canadian from the true North. He’s a Chihuahua, roughly a year old and around 7lbs right now, but could definitely do with putting on some weight.

Toque is a really sweet little guy who had a rough start in life but is ready to love unconditionally. His purpose in life is to SNUGGLE – although as he settles into his new life his interest in discovering the world is growing. He enjoys walks and has good leash manners. The sights and sounds of downtown living was a little scary for him at first but he’s getting better every day. He’s house trained, but has been known to mark in unfamiliar houses. He’s crate trained, and happy in his crate at night and when home alone for a few hours.

Toque doesn’t seem to know basic commands, so would benefit from some work in this area. We’ve also seen some evidence of resource guarding so he needs a family who will continue the good work his foster mom has started to stop this behaviour before it becomes an issue.

Other than being on the skinny side, he has no medical issues. He is showing some tartar accumulation which is typical of his breed, and means his future family need to be willing to work with him to get him comfortable with having his teeth brushed regularly (ideally daily).

Toque is fine with other dogs – likes to say hi, and lets you know when he gets overwhelmed. Because of the suspected resource guarding behaviour he should be supervised. Not cat tested. Has been fine with children he’s met out on walks but based on his background it would be sensible to introduce him carefully to any little people.

This happy little dude is waiting for his perfect furever home. He would do fine in a condo with regular walks. He will benefit from a family who are prepared to put in the work to build his confidence and show him how to be the happy, relaxed family member he is so ready to be.
