Anna

  • Breed: Lab Mix
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 1.5 Years
  • Weight: 31 kg
  • Needs: Active home, home with a yard, no small pets

Hi Everyone! My name is Anna and I’m just a beautiful young girl trying to find my forever family. Will that be you? I had a very difficult start to life and was found by some nice people underweight and sick. I’m in great health now thanks to TEAM Dog Rescue. I’m so happy TEAM took me in and my foster parents are so good to me.
I do have a wish list for the perfect family but that’s only because I want to make sure I meet my family’s needs and make them very happy. My amazing foster parents say that my main goal in life is to please my humans, as I’m a really good girl. Here is my wish list.
– Although I absolutely love people and attention, it might be best to go to a home without young children, as I tend to get over excited and need to learn some manners first. That type of environment might make me too anxious.
– I am very smart and I thrive on structure and rules, so I’d like a family that can provide this for me
– I LOVE walks and exercise with my humans! So please please find me a family that will provide me with exercise and stimulation each day
– Although I’m doing very well with my foster parents in an apartment in the city, it would be ideal if I could have a home with a backyard and be in an area that is more quiet so that I can focus on my walks
– I was previously in a foster home with another dog and enjoyed playing with them. I have also spent some time on group walks and boarding with other dogs. I would like a home with a balanced and calm dog that I can continue to learn from. Big dogs are my favorite friends.
– Although I’m a friendly girl, I don’t like small animals and can often chase squirrels and rabbits, so I need a home without any other small pets
– I really don’t like when my foster parents leave for work each day and can often howl to get their attention (and those of everyone in the apartment building), so I need a family that can help me work on my separation anxiety. I know from past experience that it will get better once I’m settled and have enough exercise!
– Lastly, I am very good in the car, so if my new family would like to take me places, that would be fun.

Archie

  • Breed: Bulldog Mix
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 6
  • Weight: 70
  • Needs: A dog free home

Attention all bully lovers!
156 days.
That is how long this gorgeous brindled boy was in a local shelter waiting for adoption interest.
A few weeks ago, we welcomed him into our care so he can unwind in the comforts of a foster home.

Look at this gorgeous 6 year old boy, found as a stray and never claimed by his people, but that didn’t tarnish his incredibly sweet temperament to people. Besides being the most handsome thing you’ve ever seen, Archie oozes confidence and is very strong so his perfect family will share those characteristics with him and help him understand he can’t always be in control – he does great with his calm and confident foster mom.

Archie is a really special dog, and adores people and is really keen to please. He’s house trained, knows basic commands and generally walks well on a leash. He will make a wonderful companion for the right home.

When he was in the shelter it was clear he wasn’t comfortable around other dogs. He is very reactive when he gets too close to certain dogs, and very strong. With others, even ones that he didn’t react to, it was obvious he did not enjoy the proximity. With the help of a behaviourist and his foster mom he’s getting better. It’s important to him that his new family will continue this work – maybe just maybe one day he’ll be able to have doggy friends or at least ‘associates’ that he can walk with. He will never be a dog park dog, and that is very important for his new family to understand. His furever home will have no other pets and no young children. He’s a good boy, the goodest boy, he just needs a particular home to be his very best self.

If this sounds like you please fill out an application (http://teamdogrescue.ca/you-can-help/adopt/adoption-application/ )or email with any questions to adopt@teamdogrescue.ca and his adoption coordinator Jenni will be in touch.

If you’re the right match, it’ll be the best decision you’ve ever made.

And please, share Archie with your network, he’s waited long enough for a family of his very own.

Thank you!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Axel and I’m an absolute delight, in every way. Although I’m an older boy, I still have lots of love to give and life to live. Joining TEAM Dog Rescue has given me a whole new outlook on life and I’m loving it!

My fosters live on a very large property that I really enjoy exploring. I’m a happy boy when outside on walks and taking in all the interesting smells of the country. Given I had never really spent much time being walked in my previous life, i’m pretty good on leash. I figure I should be a good boy on walks so my fosters keep taking me! I do have arthritis that was very painful when I first moved in with my foster parents but I’m on medication and doing much better.

My fosters are constantly amazed by me. I have lived my entire life outdoors and yet I still know all the important manners of living indoors, including how to enjoy my new dog bed. Im so gentle and always a good boy.

I love everyone and everything. I take good care of my feline foster friend Nacho and enjoy meeting all kinds of dogs small and large. Although I do enjoy the company of any type of animal, my heart is with my humans. My foster parents give me lots of love and attention and I enjoy every minute of it. I especially like when they have visitors so I can get even more attention.

I would really like a home where I can spend lots of time with my humans and a backyard where I can enjoy some outdoor time. I promise I will be an excellent companion for any type of home!

Please adopt me and make my Christmas wish come true!

Bella

  • Breed: German Shepherd
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 7 years
  • Weight: 36 kg
  • Needs: Prefers to be the only pet in a household

This amazing German Shepherd mix ended up in a shelter after her owner passed away. She sat there for months with another dog Hope. It was first thought that Bella and Hope were a bonded pair but we soon learned that they were together because they had no one else. Although Hope loves the company of other dogs Bella prefers her humans so it was decided to separate them and find each their perfect home.

Bella is a lovely 7 year old German Sheppard mix who is very quiet around the house, but will let you know when someone comes to the door. She bonds with her humans quickly and prefers to stay close by. She has beautiful thick fur and a funny smile. Bella would do best as the only pet in the household. Although she is tolerant of other dogs, she is happiest on her own.

Bella gets very excited when it’s walk time but has learned to walk very nicely on lead. She has a medium energy level so napping is another favourite activity. She is fantastic with children; the more pets she gets, the better. If you are looking for a great dog who just wants to be part of the family and join in with family activities then look no further. Bella is waiting for you!

  • Breed: Hound X
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 5 years
  • Weight: 46 lbs
  • Needs:

Fern was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter where the staff noted that she was very thin and covered in ticks. She had clearly been on her own for a while. When no one showed up to claim this beautiful dog, the shelter staff reached out to TEAM Dog Rescue, sensing that this gentle girl needed some medical attention.

Fern’s intial visit to our veterinary partner revealed suspected Lyme disease (later confirmed), a hernia and some other minor issues. She is currently on 30 days of medications to treat the Lyme and some intestinal issues and is expected to make a full recovery. She will have her hernia fixed and be spayed shortly thereafter, and then she will be ready for her new family.

Any family would be lucky to have Fern! She is sweet, gentle, quiet and extremely affectionate. She is a lover of all living things, but humans are her favourite. She would be a wonderful dog around children because of her calm nature and slight build. Her fosters say that she is good on a least and only pulls when she catches a really good scent (she is a hound afterall!), greets all other dogs politely, is not destructive when left alone and was even well-behaved when she met a cat!

The icing on the cake? She has the silkiest, softest fur you have ever felt…

  • Breed: Shih tsu
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 15
  • Weight: 5 kg
  • Needs: Adopter who can tend to his medical needs

Meet Joe, or Little Joe as we like to call him because he is only 12 lbs. Joe, a sweet Shih Tzu, came to us from a shelter in Montreal where he was surrendered due to his family’s health issues. No one was able to take care of him which was evident. He was so matted that the Montreal shelter had him shaved down and he looked like a completely different dog. No one would have recognized him. No one. As we’ve gotten to know Joe he is a delightful little guy with, unfortunately, some health problems. He had very rotted teeth and was un-neutered. We’ve taken care of all that. The one thing we can’t provide a miracle for are his kidneys. Little Joe has kidney disease. There is, however, treatment that can be done to manage this and dogs can live years with it in some cases. He have started him on a life long medication to help his kidneys preserve much needed protein. With this medication he now has a chance, a real chance, to have a happy life. To play, love and cuddle with his humans the way it’s supposed to be. Joe is waiting to meet the family who will be there for him. And never again will someone not recognize him as the stellar dog that he is.

The photo of a broken dog.

Miles has found himself at the same local shelter 5 (yes, FIVE) times, through no fault of his own. He was removed by police through an investigation three times and was found as a stray once. Legally, the shelter had no choice but to release him back to his owners. On his 4th visit, Miles stayed in their care and was then adopted to a loving family. He truly loved his adoptive parents, but when Miles’ medical problems became too much, they returned him.

The shelter reached out to us, because at 9 years of age, Miles can no longer be bounced around. His spirit is broken, and he deserves better.

Medically, we will need to do some investigative work, so Miles will be seeing one of our amazing veterinary partners to determine next steps.

In the meantime, Miles, we promise you, you will never be left in a shelter, ever again.

Please welcome, Miles, to our rescue.

  • Weight:
  • Needs: Good with other pets

My name is Ozzy. I am a bit of a mystery. Even my age is a mystery. The shelter thought I was about 5yrs old because I am full of spunk, but the vet thinks I am closer to 9 based on my teeth. I found myself in a shelter (Georgina) because I was a stray. I had a lump on my thorax that was originally thought to be a fatty lump, but the cytology results determined it was a mast cell melanoma. I had the lump removed surgically, but there were “dirty margins” so I am waiting to see if a 2nd surgery will give me a clean bill of health. I have a full report from my Oncologist who thoroughly examined me. As for me, I am a total charmer. My tail is always wagging. I am a very happy boy with very good manners and walk very nicely on a leash. I love dogs, but do prefer to hang out with humans. I am very well behaved and love going for car rides. I promise you that you will fall in love with me when you meet me. I am that good! I can live with or without another pet in the home. Not sure what cats are, but I would probably like them too. I am looking for my person to spend the rest of my life with. I promise you years of beautiful memories that we can make together.

Pirate

  • Breed: German Shepherd
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 1 year
  • Weight: 38 kg
  • Needs: TBD

Where are our German Shepherd Lovers?

Let me introduce you to Pirate, our sweet loveable goofy handsome teenager, who is one of the most affectionate dogs you will ever meet. However be warned- your initial greeting will be that deep shepherd bark, as Pirate believes his job is to protect his foster parents, and older canine sister from potential invaders. But if you come bearing treats and initially ignore him, Pirate will do his very best to become your new best friend.

Pirate is originally from Montreal, surrendered due to an suspected injury with his front paws, called Carpal Hyperextension. Upon arrival, he immediately went to visit our trusted orthopaedic surgeon, who deemed him pain free, extremely athletic and since Pirate has adapted so well, there is no need for surgery.
Pirate gets along well with his older foster sister, other dogs while in day care and would do best in a home versus a condo or apartment. Pirate is crate trained and enjoys his daily trail walks. His ideal home would have a fenced years, no cats, and if children, older teens or young adults.

We would suggest that his adoptive family engage a trainer as Pirate does show signs of some leash reactivity, and although being addressed in his foster home, continuity and commitment to ongoing training with his new family is ideal.

Pirate is truly a gem, very engaged, smart and eager to learn. He would thrive with some agility and/or lure work and true to breed, ever watchful and engaged. He bonds quickly and is extremely affectionate.

Pirate enjoys each and every member of his foster family, showing no preference, thrives on attention, enjoys playtime and is eager to embrace each and every person he meets.

  • Needs:

Hello, my name is Tobey. I am a 12 year old Pomeranian that has recently found myself in need of a retirement home.

Let me tell you a little about myself.
Not too long ago I found myself in a shelter in Montreal. Like many senior dogs, it was quickly identified that shelter life was not for me and TEAM stepped in and rescued me at the shelter’s request. I have been living with my foster family for some time now while the folks at TEAM worked hard on solving my medical issues. I have had numerous tests and even a dental surgery since coming into their care. I won’t say that I’m in tip top health but i’m a million miles away from the condition they found me in. Most of my medical issues have now been resolved, TEAM has financially invested $2633 into my well being so I can be adoption ready.

I am told however, that I may require a special longterm renal diet as you see it was discovered that I have some kidney issues. This will need to be managed for the rest of my life by my new family.

Enough about my health lets talk about my sparkling personality!

I’ve had a bit of a tough time settling in with my foster family. I never really had much attention paid to me in my previous home so I’m finding it all a little overwhelming. I’m not used having people who care about me and as a result I’m a little unsure what of to do when someone pets me. I am working on this and if you allow me the time I’m sure i’ll get the hang of it. That being said I will instigate interaction every now and again when I am brave, I am slowly getting used to a gentle hand and realizing humans arent so bad afterall. This does mean that I am looking for a quiet home (no children) to spend the rest of my days. One that will allow me to just be me and accept me for who I am. Couches and cuddling are not for me.
Patience, understanding, companionship and tolerance are the qualities I’m seeking in my new family.

Please contact my adoption coordinator, Fiona, at adopt@teamdogrescue.ca to learn more.

Thank you!

Love,

Tobey

  • Breed: Cocker Spaniel
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 15 years
  • Weight: 12 lb
  • Needs: Medical

Please welcome Wilma to our Rescue. This poor little senior girl found herself abandoned and eventually in a shelter. At 15 years of age and only 12 lbs it’s a very stressful place to be. Shelter staff noticed a tattoo on the inside of her ear but they were too swollen to read due to being infested with fleas. Cloudy eyes, teeth ready to fall out, red gums and nails so long they were curled into the paw pad were just some of the issues noted by staff. After all the neglect she’s endured she allowed shelter staff to bathe her, where the water turned red from flea bites, clip her nails and tend to the sores on her paw pads. Then they reached out to us to help her through the rest of her journey to her new safe haven.

There are still things that need to be done to ensure she is healthy and happy and we are currently taking care of all that. She will be right as rain in no time. Wilma loves to snuggle and just be with her people to relax and enjoy life the way it’s supposed to be in her senior years. Wilma is waiting to meet the family who will be there for her. And never again will this sweet little old gal face the neglect that she has endured in the past.

  • Breed: Akita X
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 6 years old
  • Weight: 43 kg
  • Needs:

Yoshi is a very handsome 6 year old Akita mix who loves his people. He has a wonderful temperament, is confident and has great manners. He bonded to his foster family very quickly and has been a light in their lives.

This special boy is very human-oriented and would do well as an only dog. It’s not that he doesn’t get along with other dogs (though he can be picky at times), he just loves humans so much and at his age socializing with dogs won’t be as much of a priority for him.

Yoshi has experienced a bit of leash reactivity but after having him assessed by a behaviourist, it appears that he is just confused as to what to do. This will require a little bit more work by someone who is devoted to helping him learn how to deal better when he’s being approached. He is not aggressive in any way, shape or form. He will need someone who is confident and used to handling a larger dog.

He has had some skin irritation/hot spots and is currently on a hypoallergenic diet and being treated with antibiotics and a short dose of prednisone. It appears to be helping but this will need to be followed up with as he most likely has some allergies.

This boy’s ideal home would be with humans only and older kids. He is house trained, neutered and microchipped. He is used to being left alone while his fosters are at work and is a treat to come home to. If you think you can find room in your home and heart for this love bug, please contact his Adoption Coordinator, Michele at info@teamdogrescue.ca.

  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 8 years
  • Weight: 21.5 kg
  • Needs:

Hello, my name is Yuki! I am an eight years young, and a Shepherd mix. I have been called “absolutely stunning”. My eyes tell it all. I have a chilled personality, and go with the flow. i think, anybody who adopts me would be lucky!

When I came into care with TEAM, and met my foster family, I adjusted easily. Very quickly, I made myself right at home, and emptied the toy box. My foster parents go out to work, and I am left roaming the home freely. I get ten out of ten, as I am not destructive. I would need a midday, bathroom break or you might come home to a little surprise!

As my first language is French, I am doing ESL lessons, to learn this other language. I am starting to get the hang of it. I know the commands sit and come in English, and I am working on others.

I have many good traits. I pay attention to humans for guidance. If I am told no, I look at the person for direction. If I see a dog approaching, while on leash, and it displays aggression, I avoid the dog. Pretty good eh! But, if I see a friendly dog, I whine and want to say hi. After all, I need to make some new friends! I have the leash thing down, unless I am interested in something, and then, I pull lightly. My foster Mum gives me a nine out of ten on leash manners. I do not bark to express my needs. Even when people come to the door, I do not bark.

The vet told me I am in good health, other than my hind left leg. I have a ruptured ligament, and need major surgery to repair it. Don’t worry! TEAM will make sure I get my surgery and will cover all the costs. I think the surgery is scheduled for mid January. It would be wonderful to go to my forever home, prior to the surgery, or I may become too attached to my foster parents.

In my forever home, I just want to be loved, and part of your life. I need a home with minimal stairs as I have arthritis. I would be a great companion to people working from home or a retired couple, as I am such a polite dog and non-active.

I am hoping to hear soon, I am on my way to my forever home! I know you will not regret it!

Hope

  • Breed: German Shepherd cross
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 8 years
  • Weight: 32 kg
  • Needs:

Hope – a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. That’s what this beautiful girl has because she knows her furever home is out there. This amazing German Shepherd mix ended up in a shelter after her owner passed away. She sat there for months with another dog Bella. It was first thought that Hope and Bella were a bonded pair but we soon learned that they were together because they had no one else. Although Hope loves the company of other dogs Bella is much happier on her own so we decided to separate them.

Then it happened, we discovered a lump, a large mammary tumour in Hope.

We immediately had her at our vet and a cytology was performed of the tumour which revealed cancerous cells. A few weeks ago, we had her affected mammary glands removed.

We discovered the mass was malignant and the cancer is atypical and aggressive. While X-rays thankfully revealed her chest is clear, the cancer had invaded her lymphatic system.

A pathologist came back with a potential lifespan of 3-18 months.

Hope is worthy of spending the balance of her life with someone who will love her unconditionally for the time she has left, and as a result she will be a compassionate adoption. She will need a home that can monitor and manage her quality of life. Pain medications will be needed. But our vets agree she still has a lot of life to live.

Some of Hope’s other favourite things include tennis balls and playing fetch, and of course, her food and treats are a very high priority for her. She is a gentle sensitive pup, and will also do well with children, women, and a home with minimal stairs as she would struggle with a multi level home.

She requires a very special adopter indeed.
Someone who will spoil her and wrap her in compassion and love for the rest of her life.

#EMPTYONTARIOSHELTERS: Second chances. Every dog deserves them and gorgeous Simba is a 2 year old Retriever mix, is no different.

Simba is a prime example of a dog that just didn’t present well in a shelter environment. When we visited with him, he was reactive to dogs in the kennel, unsure of most people walking by, and was just nervous.
However.
Outside of the shelter walls? This is a stellar family dog, with a very friendly disposition that craves nothing but love and attention, and gets along famously with other dogs.

Simba was surrendered to a local shelter after his family didn’t have time for him any longer and kept him crated more often then not (his history is here: https://bit.ly/36lWyHy) . We are fortunate that Hanna of Mindful Dog Company is fostering SImba so we would like to ensure his family continues with his basic obedience training, and work with him as everything is so very new.

Perfect dogs are not born, they are trained, and Simba is a very quick study.

He is a lover of all people and would do just about anything for a head scratch and some attention. He gets along famously with other dogs and would also be a wonderful addition to a household with an existing canine family.

A true gem of a dog, and he can be yours, please contact his adoption coordinator, Nicole, at adopt@teamdogrescue.ca to learn more and applications can be found here: http://teamdogrescue.ca/you-can-help/…/adoption-application/

  • Needs: Active family, no cats, loves dogs

Rottweiler lovers, you can now relax because your search is over. You have found me, Hugo, the one you have been waiting for.

I’m a year and a half old puppy dog who ended up at the shelter because my owner didn’t want to put the time into me. I didn’t get the exercise I needed, the stimulation or the training. This has left craving attention. I want to be with you ALL THE TIME! So hope you like to play ‘cause I’m down for that any time.

I really would like a house with a backyard, where I can burn some of that energy off, and protect you from any squirrels who dare hop onto your land. Since I like to chase small animals though, we all agree cats are probably not a good idea in my home. Even with that backyard though, I still need (and like) my walks, where we can continue practicing walking on leash like I do with my foster dad these days. Speaking of practice, I will need training work to learn my basic manners. But I’m smart, give me the knowledge and I will learn.

I would be good with a dog sibling of my own, but would also be happy to have you all to myself. When I meet dogs I get super excited, but once they’re closer I get shy and need a minute to be sure they’re good company. Same with people, I can’t help but want to meet everybody when I’m out!

Hello reader, welcome to my page. My name is Tasha. Maybe it should be Momma Dog though. You see, one of the first things my fosters noticed was that I am drawn to children. I am good on leash but as soon as I see them I pull to go over and say hello. I lived with children in my previous home, and took good care of them. That is, until my family who had me all my life moved and gave me up rather than being me with them. I would love to help watch over your children to. If you bring me home I will watch over you as well. I follow my foster family around and love to be wherever they are, and will just curl up and watch the news with you in the evening, or Saturday morning cartoons.

I LOVE my walks. I don’t have much interest in toys, or playing with other dogs, but I love to get out for a stroll and meet lots of people. If there is a squirrel on the walk have no fear, I will chase the evil puffy tailed beast away for you. Speaking of other dogs, I don’t mind them and will say hello, but people are where my real focus is. I do however dislike boys who get too forward, and will passive aggressively ignore them and walk away.

I am a sweet adult lady with perfect manners and would like a family of her own. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Jersey

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 6 years
  • Weight:
  • Needs: Good with everyone (dogs, cats, kids), needs some medical

Just look at this face! The epitome of happiness and Happy is what she should be called. But Jersey is her name and she was surrendered to a local shelter at the age of six because she “leaks”!
A simple fix really, if you have a relationship with your vet. This is a common issue with females, post spay, and simple hormone replacement is all that is needed, although dosage sometimes requires some tweaking. And Jersey is overweight! However, as soon as Jersey lifted her paws into the Critter Cabs transport, she started wagging her tail and hasn’t stopped! Each and every driver commented on how sweet and happy she is! And no wonder, as she now has a great future ahead. Her foster parents love her, as does her much younger foster sister and she was recently a guest at her parents wedding, and all the other guests were smitten as well.
Jersey is now enjoying plenty of walks, nine floors of stair climbing in lieu of the elevator ride and a controlled diet. We are watched the pounds melt away. With the potential loss of 10-15 lbs and her hormone meds adjustment, Jersey will be a healthy middle aged dog with a bounce in her step and a bright future ahead.
Jersey is a well balanced dog, who isn’t affected by thunder, fire alarms or sirens and can handle being left alone, while her parents work. She gets along well with the resident foster cat and caged rats. But really, despite enjoying play time with other dogs, it is people she wants. She adores her humans and just wants to be close by. Jersey greets everyone with the same enthusiasm and will make friends wherever she goes.
If you want an ambassador to the canine world, Jersey is your girl, and her sweet trusting nature will have her fitting into her new home very often soon. She is ready and waiting, with tail wagging.

  • Weight:
  • Needs: An adopter willing to meet Ren’s medical needs

This adorable little guy found himself at the shelter as a stray. His matting was so sever he had to be sedated in order to be groomed, it was that painful. He also had a mouth full of rotten teeth. But now he’s just the happiest toothless fellow around and just adores being petted. He’s very spry and active for a 10 year old Shih Tzu and has become a man about town. When he goes for a walk, he is on a mission greeting everyone he meets. That’s why you wouldn’t know that he has a heart murmur and requires life long medication as well as drops for his eyes to keep them comfortable. If you can welcome this lovely senior into your home and enjoy going for lots of walks, it won’t take long before you know everyone in your neighbourhood.

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.

Please welcome, Dexter, to our rescue.
