  • Age: 1.5 years old
  • Weight: 40 lbs
  • Needs:

Hi everyone

My name is Rolo and I’m about to tell you a little bit about myself and my needs. I am a 1.5 year old saluki mix. I came from Bahrain last October to Toronto in the very chilly weather! I was adopted out to a wonderful family in downtown Toronto in November. They absolutely adore me and only want what’s best for me, so they are making the heartbreaking decision to surrender me back to TEAM Dog rescue so they can re- home me to a family that fits my needs. I have recently seen a trainer and they provided a very detailed assessment and noted a few important things for my wish list:
I am a VERY sweet and gently boy who desperately wants to be loved and gain confidence
I love my people, but it takes time to be 100% comfortable
While I’m comfortable with some men, I need to take my time and come around when I’m ready. I do prefer females as men have scared me in the past
I would like gentle, older, respectful children (my foster home had children and I adored them)
I need to live in a quiet place, a suburb or somewhere outside of the city (as all the city noise makes me nervous)
I enjoy the company of other dogs and would get along well with any balanced dogs
I am fairly high energy and enjoy long walks and mental stimulation
A backyard would be so wonderful. I would love to run around and play
I love to get cozy on furniture, so hoping for a home that welcomes dogs on the couch
I want a family that is ok to snuggle, I really enjoy the love, attention and being close that my family provides and want to continue that
I need a family that has experienced a fearful and timid dog, so they understand that it takes time to integrate into a home

Please help me find my new family. I have so many people committed to finding me the right, permanent home.

  • Breed: Saluki Mix
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 4
  • Weight: 30lbs
  • Needs:

Meet Raiden
Raiden never has a family of her own, she has been living in a dog shelter in Bahrain for 3.5 years before she made her way to Canada at a chance for a new lease on life.

The plight of dogs in Bahrain is complicated, dogs and cats are often left to roam the streets in temperatures that usually soar between 35 to 45 degrees Celsius with little to no access to food, water, or shelter. Fortunately, there are some kind and caring volunteers who feed all the homeless animals at night and have established feeding routes. Bahrain is an island country of about 1.5 million people; most of the people are Middle Eastern with a rather large number of expats. Land area is 283 square miles. Among these islanders, are over 18,000 stray dogs living on the streets. Bahrain remains a country that Canada can import dogs from as they do not carry diseases ( most specifically Rabies) that are of concern elsewhere in the world. As a rescue, we prominently helps dogs locally first and foremost, and always have, but every year we commit to helping a handful of dogs from abroad, and a month ago welcomed this beauty into our care.

Raiden is a beautiful 4 year old, she is very submissive and very gentle and she is learning the rules of engagement of being a stellar Canadian. Everything is new and everyday comes with a new lesson. This timid and fearful little girl is shedding her fear and showing her bravery with each waking day.

Raiden spent most of her young life in a shelter in Bahrain where, sadly, she was bullied by the other dogs. Despite all she endured, she has the gentlest nature. She was welcomed by one of our incredible fosters and has spent the past 10 weeks unwinding & thriving, and showing us why she is SO deserving of her happily ever after. Because she’s been through so much, she would thrive in a quiet home without young children, and in a more suburban setting. She warms up naturally to ladies, and can sometimes take more time with men. All she wants to do is cuddle up with her people, but it may take her some time to come out of her shell initially. She is currently fostered in a home with both dogs and cats, but is happy in her own company as well. A fenced in backyard would be Raiden’s dream.

Raiden’s adoption coordinator is excited to discuss Raiden in more detail with you. Please email us at [email protected] for more information.

Hi! My name is Lady and I am an 8 year old hound mix. I’m told I was found running in a field with another dog, but luckily some nice people picked me up and said they would look after me! Unfortunately, because I can’t talk, I wasn’t able to tell people that I really didn’t want to live with the dog I was found with and ended up being placed in multiple homes with her. She is a nice dog, but I’m realizing now that we had what humans would describe as a “toxic relationship”, and we really stressed each other out! Luckily the ladies at TEAM recently placed us into separate foster homes, and wow! We are doing great now! I have so much fun with my foster family! My foster mom says I am the sweetest dog, and I love being with people because they give me lots of snuggles! She also says I am a really good girl in the house; I am housetrained and usually quiet. I love to go for walks, but once I have done all my sniffing I like to just hang out with my foster family. I have seen some things called “cats” on my walks, but they seem pretty boring, so I don’t pay attention to them. Dogs, on the other hand, are interesting, and I like seeing them when I am out and about! Sometimes I might try to pull a little to go say hi, but I usually walk well on my leash. I haven’t met very many kids, but I think I would be ok with older ones if they were able to understand that I get nervous sometimes and do best in a calm environment.
Some things I definitely don’t like include thunderstorms and fireworks! Those things freak me out! But really, who enjoys hearing really loud noises when you have great ears like mine? When I get nervous, I like to be in a quiet area, and my mom plays some classical music for me to help calm me down. My anxiety is much better than it used to be, and with continued management, it could likely improve even more. I’m hoping someone who sees this post will understand that no one is perfect, and that they will love me anyways!
I’ve had a pretty hard life, and even though I love my foster family so much, I would be so happy to have a forever family of my own. If you think you might want to hear more about me, please email my adoption coordinator Sonya at [email protected].

Rudy

  • Breed: Hound
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 4 Years
  • Weight: 55 lbs.
  • Needs: Experienced dog owner, preferably with hound experience.

Sir Rudy, aka The Rudester has been with us for just over 2 years now. Pulled from a shelter, Rudy arrived to us in a considerable amount of pain due to an injury on his femur that required surgery. For quite some time, the injury was not healing properly and Rudy continued to be stoic while living with this discomfort.

Rudy is an exuberant and happy-go-lucky dog. He has really come out of his shell over the past five months with his newest foster family who have been working diligently with him to make him the goodest boy he can be!

He loves other dogs and has been excelling at daycare. He can adjust his play habits to any dog, large or small and is really good at reading their body language. He’s a fan of people too and has been working hard on trying not to jump on them when he greets them.

He’s super food motivated and as a result, extremely trainable. He will resist training at times if he doesn’t see the point in it so yes, he can have a mind of his own. He knows several commands but his recall isn’t the best so he must always be on a leash or a tether! He loves a good run but shouldn’t run for long due to the leg injury/surgery he had when he first arrived to us. He experiences no pain but needs to be managed to ensure he doesn’t do any damage to himself.

Rudy sleeps in his crate every night like a champ. He starts his day with breakfast and a good walk and then returns to nap in his crate for most of the morning.

He is indifferent to squirrels and birds but loses his mind when he sees a cat so he is seeking a NON CAT HOUSEHOLD! Due to his exuberance, he would also do best in a calm, quiet household without kids.

He is completely house trained and hasn’t had an accident for months now. While he doesn’t chew on shoes, he loves to try to get into the family’s socks which is a no no for his slightly sensitive tummy so it’s important that things be kept out of his reach, especially anything of high value.

Rudy does still experience some separation anxiety. He will sometimes cry until the cows come home when left alone though he’s learning that with the distraction of a good chew treat, the world of being alone isn’t all that bad. We feel strongly that having another dog at home to keep him company could possibly be the best antidote!!!

This boy loves scratches behind the ears and a good belly rub any time. It can take him a few months to truly trust his people so he will need some time to adjust to a new family but once he trusts, he’s a head-in-the-lap kinda dog who is full of affection and the cutest goofball ever.

We are waiving Rudy’s adoption fee. He needs to find his forever home where he will experience love for the rest of his life.

This 2 year old beauty is smaller then she looks, weighing in at 35 pounds she is the epitome of sweet and submissiveness. Local shelter staff fondly referred to her as Santa’s Little Helper ( a character from The Simpson’s) due to the resemblance and she is exceptionally adorable and equally as friendly, however, she found the shelter a very stressful place regardless of being fawned with attention by staff and we were happy to welcome her into our care.
She is presently in foster care and truly loving canine companionship with TEAM alumni, Blu.
She is a high energy girl that loves to play, and especially would thrive with another dog who is craving a partner in crime and is exceptionally affectionate.

  • Age: 1 year old
  • Weight: 50 lbs
  • Needs: Patient adopter, no children

Hi Everyone!

I am one of the newest beauties at team dog rescue. I come from a wonderful rescue in Bahrain that saved me from slide in the streets. They took me in until I could make my way to Canada and my new life.

I am currently living with my foster mom, dad, canine sister and feline foster siblings in Kitchener. I am loving my new life and slowly learning that people are friendly and not going to hurt me. My foster family is very focused on letting me settle in and building my confidence around other people. It did take me some time to warm up to them but now I have learned that cuddles (both with my foster mom and dad AND my foster canine sister) are the absolute best! I have a nice cozy bed that I spend my days on. I am also learning that walks and car rides are so much fun. My foster parents always double leash me to make sure I’m secure and can’t run away, as I’m a flight risk at the moment, given how fearful I am.

I am the sweetest and most gentle dog but am looking for a very patient family that will take the time to help me adapt to my new life. I also want my new family to keep in mind that i’m still very young and need some basic puppy training (i accidentally chewed on my foster parents couch), but I learn very quickly! While I may one day be great with kids, they seem to frighten me right now, so I do prefer a home without children. My foster parents think I would do well in a home with another dog, who can help to build more confidence.

Hey there, future paw-rent!

I’m Scruffy Duffy, the four-month-old Yorki Mix with a zest for life that’s off the charts! If you’re looking for a fur ball to bring you endless fun and brighten your day, look no further – I’m your guy!

I’ve got a long list of likes, including just about everything – dogs, kids, and, of course, humans! As I discover the world around me, I haven’t found many dislikes, but loud noises might make me pause, but I’ll look to you for reassurance and take your lead. When it comes to showing affection, let’s just say I’ve got a lot of love to give! I may need guidance in expressing it calmly, but come nighttime, I transform into a snuggly love bug when I’m tired.

Here’s the scoop on my bathroom habits: I’m a pro at using pee pads, but I could use help learning that the great outdoors is my giant bathroom. On walks, I’ll patiently hold it in until we get home, and then it’s straight to the pee pad. With a bit of patience and consistency, I’ll get the hang of it!

Since I’m just a pup, some basic training is in order, but I promise to be an eager student. All I need is a family willing to teach me the ropes.

A mature and playful dog buddy and a yard to play in would be fantastic bonuses for me. Speaking of buddies, I absolutely adore being around kids, so if you have a family, I’d fit right in and become your loyal, happy-go-lucky family dog.

Ready to make me a part of your family? Fill out an application today!

Meet Benson: Your Loyal and Loving Companion
Are you looking for a furry friend who will bring endless joy and love into your life? Look no further than Benson, a charming 10-year-old Australian Terrier with a heart of gold. He wears his heart on his furry sleeve, for he has never met a soul – canine or human – that he hasn’t wanted to befriend. With a wag of his tail and a twinkle in his eye, you’ll find it impossible not to fall in love with his warm and friendly demeanor.

One of Benson’s favourite activities is snoozing the day away right next to his favourite human companion. There’s nothing he enjoys more than cuddling up on your lap and showering you with affection. He’s a professional cuddler, and he takes his role very seriously! Rest assured, you’ll never feel lonely with Benson by your side.

Benson is a smart pup and has learned quickly to sit by the door when he needs to go potty. He’s still working on his leash skills, but that’s understandable since he’s a curious terrier who wants to explore and sniff everything in sight. A little patience and positive reinforcement during walks will go a long way in helping him improve.

Although he dreams of having a backyard to roam and discover, Benson is adaptable and can thrive in an apartment as long as he gets plenty of exercise. He’s an outdoor enthusiast and will gladly join you for long walks or hikes, making him the perfect companion for active individuals or families.

Speaking of companionship, Benson is a social butterfly and adores the company of other well-balanced dogs. He enjoys playtime with his furry friends and will truly thrive in a home where he has a dog buddy to share adventures with. Plus, his friendly and gentle nature makes him great with respectful kids who will love showering him with attention.
On car rides, Benson is in his element; he loves accompanying you on road trips and seeing the world with you. However, he’s not a big fan of public transportation (we all have our quirks, right?). But don’t worry, with his love for the outdoors, walking will be an enjoyable and healthy bonding experience for both of you.

It’s essential to know that Benson gets a little nervous during vet visits and can panic when restrained. However, his kind soul prevents him from attempting to bite, and with patience and understanding, these experiences can become less stressful for him.

Benson’s taste buds have decided that freeze-dried rabbit treats are the ultimate delicacy. So, prepare yourself for the endless tail wags and adorable antics when it’s treat time!

While he’s not a fan of dog beds, Benson has excellent taste in napping spots – the sofa is his go-to, and at night he loves nothing more than snuggling up with you in bed.

This adorable Australian Terrier rarely barks, but when he does, it’s out of pure excitement or the playful influence of his doggie pals. His bark is a charming expression of his enthusiasm and affection.

So, if you’re looking for a loyal, loving, and affectionate companion who will fill your life with joy and adventure, Benson is the perfect match for you. He’s waiting eagerly to become part of your family, offering you unwavering companionship and love for many years to come. Adopt Benson and experience the unconditional love only a dog like him can provide. Don’t miss the chance to bring this delightful furry friend into your life – fill out an application to adopt Benson today!

  • Weight: 7lbs
  • Needs:

Introducing Micky! He is the cutest little 10-year-old chihuahua who found himself alone in a shelter after his owner passed away. The shelter reached out to TEAM because, as a senior dog, Micky was having an extremely hard time at the shelter and was spending his days trembling in his cage. Luckily, one of our wonderful fosters was available to take him in and he is currently living the good life in his foster home! As you can imagine from looking at his mischievous smile, he has a personality that is much bigger than his body! Like all chi’s he is devoted to his people. He is friendly with the resident dogs in his home, enjoys hanging out on the couch, sniffing in the yard, and playing with the new toys his foster family has gotten him.

Although overall Micky is in good shape medically, the shelter and his foster home did note some concern with his back, so he has been undergoing some investigation into that since arriving with TEAM. We have since learned that he has some spinal fluid that can cause some pain as well as some old herniated discs. He will not require surgery, but will likely need medication for pain on and off throughout the rest of his life. This is an inexpensive and commonly available medication.

Micky is a wonderful dog who so deserves a loving forever home to spend the rest of his life in! if you think you might be a good fit for micky, please fill out an application or contact his adoption coordinator Sonya at [email protected]

Hello there! My name is Dolly, and I’m a 10-month-old female American Bulldog. If I may say so myself, I am simply the cutest pup you’ll ever lay eyes on. With my big puppy eyes and adorable snout, I’m sure to melt your heart in an instant.

I’m a bundle of energy, and nothing makes me happier than going for long walks and playing with toys. I’ll be honest, I may not always be aware of my own strength, and sometimes I get incredibly excited, resulting in me pulling on the leash and jumping up to greet people. I promise to learn quickly with the right guidance and patience. With your help, I know I can master the art of polite leash walking in no time. Plus, I’m a quick learner and eager to please, so I’m confident that we’ll make a great team!

When it comes to meeting other furry friends, I get along great with my foster siblings (dogs and cat). However, I was in a home with another dog for a couple of days and for some reason we didn’t get along. Even though I don’t know why we didn’t click (I guess it just wasn’t meant to be), I’ll continue to love and get along with my current foster siblings until I find my forever home.

While I don’t necessarily need a yard, I would absolutely love one! With all the energy I have, it’s important that I have plenty of space to burn it off. However, if you don’t have a yard, no worries! I’m adaptable and will adjust to whatever space you have, as long as you can give me plenty of exercise and playtime.

If you’re looking for a loyal, loving, and adorable companion, then look no further! I’m ready to fill your life with endless love, laughter, and cuddles. So why wait? Submit your application today, and let’s start our journey together!

Meet Peanut, the cutest 12-year-old Shih Tzu with a heartwarming tale of resilience and hope! Peanut’s story is one of triumph, as he overcame a tough past to become the most lovable and playful pup around. He’s now ready to find his forever home, and we know he’ll make the perfect addition to one lucky family.

When Peanut first arrived at Team Dog Rescue, he needed lots of love and medical attention. He had suffered from neglect, leaving him with a bacterial infection, rotten teeth, and a tangled coat. Peanut was also incredibly nervous and distrustful of people. However, after receiving surgery and plenty of TLC, Peanut’s journey took a turn for the better.

Peanut may be a bit shy around new people, but don’t let that fool you! Once you earn his trust he’ll show off his quirky personality and become the most loyal companion you could ask for. He loves playing with his toys and waking up every morning ready to have fun. He even enjoys coffee chats with his human friends, speaking “Chewbacca” to make them laugh.

One of Peanut’s favourite activities is going for walks. His little legs may move fast, but he always stops to smell the roses (or whatever smells good). He loves laundry day and is the best helper when it comes to collecting your dirty socks, but most of all he loves snuggling up beside his humans on the couch and making an array of hilarious noises that will surely make you smile.

Because Peanut is nervous around strangers, he would thrive in a calm and quiet home. He just needs a patient and understanding family who will give him the love and care he deserves. If you’re looking for a loyal, playful, and adorable companion, Peanut is the pup for you! Apply today and let Peanut’s love and energy brighten up your life.

Meet Phoebe, a spunky 12-week old mix breed pup who hails all the way from Manitoba! With her playful personality and mischievous grin, she’s sure to melt your heart in no time.

Phoebe is all about having fun and living life to the fullest. She’s a big fan of zoomies and after her energetic bursts of activity, she’ll often take a well-deserved puppy nap. But don’t let her sleepy demeanour fool you – once she’s rest up, she’s ready to play again!

One of Phoebe’s favourite things to do is play with toys, especially ones that squeak and bounce. She also loves being outside and exploring the world around her. And when it comes to food, Phoebe is a big fan – she never says no to a tasty treat!

Despite her boundless energy, Phoebe is also a very affectionate pup. If she’s not cuddling up to you for some love, she’ll be curled up by your feet, content just to be near you. She also adores her senior foster brother, who has been showing her the ropes and helping her settle in.

While Phoebe is a smart pup, she’ll need some additional training to master leash manners and house training. But with patience and consistency she’ll be a model pup in no time!

Phoebe would do best in a home with a yard or lots of opportunities for outdoor play. She needs about 2-3 hours of playtime each day to burn off all her puppy energy. But if you’re looking for a loyal companion who will bring endless joy and laughter to your life, Phoebe is the pup for you. She’ll make a great addition to any family!

June (formerly Daughter)

  • Breed: Husky and Lab Mix
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 1 1/2 years
  • Weight: 59 lbs.
  • Needs: Fenced Yard. Another friendly dog.

This northern beauty has a personality that shines through. She loves other dogs and humans alike and has gotten along well with everyone she’s met. She walks fairly well on her leash and is good in the car. She likes to go into the local pet shop and walk the aisles – I think we have a shopper on our hands! She has not exhibited any signs of separation anxiety when left alone with her fur siblings and seems to not be the least bit concerned with loud noises like thunder or the vacuum cleaner. She does not require crating at all. She loves stuffed kongs, chew toys and playing outside in her fenced backyard. Oh and did someone say food? That’s one of her favourite things which is part of the reason we think she’s likely part lab (and part husky). A true northern, she likes to dig and lay in the ‘ditch’ she is so proud of making. She does mouth a bit but never to bite. This is something that her adopter will need to continue to work on though she’s improving greatly already.

June would love another dog in the family she could play with. She does love to engage and has even been able to rouse one of her current fur siblings who wasn’t so sure at the beginning. They are often seen playing in the yard or curled up beside each other. She is quite high energy so would be best suited to another dog who really wants to interact and play.

Upon examination by our veterinarian upon intake, they noticed an abnormality in her left leg. X-rays were conducted and it was concluded that as a puppy she clearly had experienced some kind of trauma. As a result, she sustained a fracture to the growth plate of her femur that was not tended to and her left femur is a bit shorter than the right. Her kneecap also appears permanently displaced laterally. She does not experience any pain at all and is compensating extremely well. To ensure she remains pain free she will need to remain on joint supplements for the balance of her life to prevent and manage any arthritis that could potentially come her way.

If you think you would like to welcome this angel into your family, please complete and submit our adoption application.

Dexter

  • Breed: Shepherd Mix
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 4 months
  • Weight:
  • Needs:

Dexter is an independent little puppy, he loves to cuddle for short periods of time but then he’s on the move hustling and bustling and playing to his hearts content. He has people to see and places to go, he is a busy body, a feisty little playful little guy. Like the energizer bunny after a 12 pack of Red Bull. Doesn’t like to put on his winter coat and thinks that’s lame however his bravado ends and he can be very dramatic when getting a bath. The bath had him so concerned, he was trying to protect Benny in the tub. He is FULL of personality.

Hi Everyone!

Are you looking for cuteness, love and companionship in your life? Well so am I!!

I’m a little 8 year old Maltese mix looking for a forever home. My previous owner was a senior and my best friend. He loved me very much but did not tend to my needs or socialize me outside of the home very much. Sadly, he needed to move into a nursing home and couldn’t care for me anymore. It broke my heart. So I need to start all over and look for a new home. I cant wait to experience everything wonderful in life, like walks, meeting new people, and lots of attention. I also can’t wait to get my medical needs addressed. Team Dog is going to get my dental done, so I will feel much better soon!

I’m so thankful that Team Dog Rescue stepped in to help me. They have set me up in an incredible foster home. I have a temporary mom and dad, and two little kids (that have become my best friends)! I am loving it here but I know this is just for a little while and would love to find a home of my own.

I’m such a good boy in the home, keeping everyone company while they work, play or watch tv. I really don’t like when they leave the room. My foster mom tells me I have separation anxiety and I need to work through this. Its not my fault, my previous owner never left the house much, so I’m just not used to it. Its also probably why I bark a lot outside of the home when I see new things like cars, bicycles, loud noises. I’m just getting used to everything, but I love these new experiences! Especially meeting my foster siblings friends at school, as well as new canine friends at the park.

If you are looking for a best friend, spend a lot of time at home and are committed to giving me a loving home, please apply. I deserve to have a home of my own.
