Guinness

  • Breed: Cane Corso
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 3
  • Weight: 100
  • Needs:

We welcomed sweet Guinness, a 3 year old Cane Corso, a few weeks back from a shelter outside of the GTA where he was abandoned. Guiness was a shelter favourite as the staff swooned over him and his gentle personality, for all you power breed lovers out there, get ready to fall in love.

We were very fortunate that Guiness is being fostered by a dog trainer who has adopted and fostered for us numerous times since our inception. As a result, we have very keen observations about Guinness and his specific needs to thrive in a home. First and foremost Guinness is a very large dog, 100 pounds of strength. He is also extremely gentle and snuggle and cuddles with his foster parents on the couch at every opportunity. Guiness needs more confidence for when he is outdoors. New sights and sounds his him tucking his tail. Street cars and flags flapping in the wind also make him uneasy as its very new to him, the little things will spook him yet he doesn’t shy away from what fears him, he watches adamantly with his tail low of tucked until he feels its safe to move along. Guinness loves the kitchen, he loves food and sadly no counter is safe from his surfing, so his home needs to ensure that they don’t make it too easy for him. Guinness joined us with minimal leash skills and since arriving he has made incredible progress as he is a quick study. Guinness also is continuing to be exposed to other dogs and although he is interested, he is generally quiet and very insecure around them. He can be vocal in his crate as he prefers to be out of it. Guinness is an amazing dog and is a quick study and is making strides every single day.

The ideal adopter would be someone experienced with power breeds, happy to continue his training and watch Guiness flourish into the Majestic and confidant Corso he was born to be! Due to his size and strength we would prefer him in a home with dog savvy children over the age of 16+ and ideally as the only pet. Guinness is a big goof ball with medium to low energy. His perfect day would be to cuddle with his humans all day on the couch and share “popcorn” over his favourite romcom. Exercise and stimulation is of course something he needs however he may not make the best running partner 😉 This beauty is finally ready for adoption!

Aster

  • Breed: Golden Retriever (Mix)
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 5 years
  • Weight:
  • Needs: Needs another dog, no children, a fully fenced yard and someone who is home most of the time.

Sweet, beautiful, shy, angelic, girl is looking for her forever home.

Everyone meet Aster. This precious girl was pulled from another puppy mill situation where she was used to breed until she was no longer useful. She arrived to her foster family paralyzed with fear. She was likely raised outdoors since that’s her favourite place to be. Walking on a floor or a carpet was so foreign to her that she simply froze. Going on a walk was a reason to drop to the ground for fear of moving forward.

Aster has come a long way but still has a a ways to go. She will need someone patient and encouraging who will continue to work on her comfort level indoors and on her walks but she is already much better than she was.

It takes her time to allow new people to pet her and give her cuddles but once she does, she loves the attention.

Based on how she is when she has been in the company of another dog, it’s absolutely clear that she MUST have a friendly, loving fur sibling in her home. This will really help her to continue to thrive.

Due to her fear, she is best suited in a family that have no children as they could startle her. This angel doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She is simply pure love.

Aster is approximately 5 years old and is UTD with all of her shots. She has just recovered from her spay and a dental and is ready to find her people.

If you think you can be the perfect fit for Aster, please complete our adoption application.

Hey there, world! I’m Madge, and I’m more than just your average pup – I’m gorgeous 10-year-old White Shepherd mix. 🌟

You see, I started my journey at Team Dog Rescue with a few health hiccups, but thanks to my fantastic foster mom and the wonderful ladies at Team Dog Rescue, I’ve battled through some health hurdles. It took me 6 months but guess what? I’m feeling fantastic now and ready to find my very own forever home! 🏡

I’ve been diagnosed with a rare but highly manageable condition called Mucocutaneous Pyoderma. It’s a bit of a tongue-twister, but the good news is that all I need is a simple cream for those pesky lesions that pop up every now and then. It’s a piece of cake to manage! 🍰

Want to know more about me? Well, I’m not just a medical marvel; I’ve got an incredible personality to match. My mom calls me magic Madge afterall. She would be the first to tell you that I’m the sweetest, most loving dog you could ever meet. I adore kids (my foster parents have three of them), my foster canine pals, and even the rabbits in the house – I’m an all-around social butterfly. I’m always looking for snuggles and attention, especially from my furry companions. There’s no place I’d rather be than cuddled up in a cozy bed with my doggy friends!

I’m a nature enthusiast and I love being in the backyard and going for refreshing walks. I’m working on my leash manners, as I can sometimes pull when I see someone I’d like to meet. I’d love to have a family who can provide me with structured walks and a dash of training. I’m very smart and eager to be top of the class.

Do you think I could be the perfect fit for your family? I’ve got my paws crossed, hoping to find my forever family, and I believe it might just be that little bit of magic you are looking for.

  • Needs: another dog

Hey oh I’m Toni! But really I don’t have a mobster boss voice. I’m really sweet and gentle and I don’t have a mean bone in my body (just like any other dog). However I’m not like a lot of lucky dogs. I’ve spent the first four years of my life not being loved or cared for like I deserve. So I have no clue that dogs go outside to do their business. I was never taught that. Thankfully I have my foster dogs to show me and a very patient foster mama who knows exactly how to guide me to success.

I’m such a quick learner and I already know my name! I’m the cutest when I get praised for going potty. I wag my tail and come straight to you to show you how proud I am! Are you looking for cuddle bug that just adores being by your side? Are you patient and understanding of a rescue dogs needs? Then please contact my adoption coordinator Lauren so she can find me the perfect home for me. Thank you!

Cosette

  • Breed: Berne Doodle
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 3
  • Weight: 30 Lbs
  • Needs:

Sweet Cosette has recently joined TEAMdog as a rescue from a puppy mill. She is a shy, gentle 3 year old Bernadoodle who has captured the hearts of everyone she meets as she bravely learns all about her new life in her foster home.

A well behaved young lady, she becomes more adventurous every day and is learning in leaps and bounds with the dedicated help of her foster dad. Initially, she was hesitant to come out of her crate or make confident eye contact, but, after such a short time, she is showing enthusiasm for all the new adventures she encounters as a dog in the big city. She can now navigate stairs (both ways, bravo!), walks more confidently on her leash and now approaches mealtimes without hesitation. On her recent first visit to the park, Cosette met the other dogs she encountered with curiosity and showed no desire to chase the birds that interested her when she saw them. Cosette has begun to make eye contact with other dogs when they appear, indicating that she has begun to feel confident and is keen to get to know them. Our girl is tackling the city streets with less anxiety from noise and busyness and, even at busy times, no longer hesitates, with the patient support of her human.

In her current home, Cosette is a polite and very quiet housemate. She has yet to welcome visitors or children to her world, but she comfortably stays on her own for a few hours at a time, resting on her bed, as long as she has her trusted blanket with her. Despite her low key personality, Cosette has started to respond enthusiastically both at home and out in the world, with bursts of high energy. Trips in the car have become much more enjoyable, as she sits alert and takes in all the new sights out the window. She has become tolerant of gentle touch, and has been a good girl both at the vet and in accepting her daily ear drops for the ear infection that is on the mend.

Cosette will continue to learn and develop her skills in a patient adoptive home that can dedicate time toward introducing her to new experiences. She is still working on her leash skills and learning to take treats directly from her person. Socialization with people and other dogs in a gentle, patient way would be important for her. We are sure she will charm everyone she meets and be a wonderful companion for the adopter that welcomes her home. This brave lady will thrive exploring more and more of the world as she learns all that her new life has to offer, and we are so excited to introduce her!

Panda

  • Breed: St. Bernard
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 7 months
  • Weight: 70 lbs
  • Needs: Medical – Physio, Vet appts.

Hi, I’m Panda! At just four months of age, I was found tied to a fence with my mom. I am a big goofy puppy, but I didn’t deserve that. I also didn’t deserve the trauma that left me with a missing hind leg. I have had a ruff start to life. I know I am in good hands now. My foster mom and family have done SO MUCH for me. They bought me two beds (one I had too many accidents on) and a new couch because I am a puppy and I love to chew. I also went to the vet a lot to rebandage my stump, as couches are not the only thing delicious, so is bandage tape!

My foster mom named me Macgyver! I’m intelligent and determined. When people meet me in public, they instantly love me, so I shouldn’t have a problem finding my forever family. However, I will need extra care with my mobility issues. Don’t worry, I will reward you with lots of kisses and love.

What does it look like for now for me? Initially, I was scared. Doctors told me I would need a couple surgeries. But guess what? I saw a specialist, and he said I could get strong through physio and have a fancy custom prosthetic to stabilize me. So, if you have experience with large breeds like me and are committed to my ongoing care so I can continue to grow and get stronger, I would love to meet you!

Marnie

  • Breed: Shih Tzu
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 7
  • Weight:
  • Needs:

he evolution of a puppy mill dog in pictures. Marnie joined our rescue in November and it has taken this long for her to decompress and shed some of her timidness.

She is a 7 year old Shih Tzu, she is also a puppy mill survivor.

A puppy mill is a breeding establishment where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs.

They are overcrowded and unsanitary and the dogs are not provided with adequate veterinary care, food, water and socialization, all the while in deplorable conditions.

This little girl was bred repeatedly to line the pockets of those who exploited her. We are grateful that she can transition from product to pet and she began her rehabilitation in a foster home where she slowly learned to decompress and learn to be social and in essence, learn how to be a dog, not a puppy making machine.

At only 7 years old she literally had no idea what to make of her new surroundings, she was scared and frightened. She is a life virgin and everything is very new to her she will require a very patient owner who will slowly continue to coax her to see and assimilate to the world and forget her previous life of living 24/7 in a cage.

Since joining us Marnie has had multiple vet visits, she had a mammary tumour removed ( which proved to be benign) and is undergoing a dental this week along with tending to both eye and ear infections as well.

Our financial investment into Marnie’s care to get her adoption ready is $3631.46.

It’s her time to find a family and continue ti learn how to be more than just a puppy dispenser. Its her time to develop trust for humans, and to finally settle into a home where she will be wrapped in compassion and understanding.

Hi everyone,

I’m one of TEAM Dog Rescues newest pups and I’m so excited to find my forever home.

I should provide you with some background and details about what I want and need in an adopter. So here it goes…..

I am a 6 year old cockapoo (although the vet seems to think I have some King Charles Spaniel in me). I was rescued by the wonderful ladies at team from a puppy mill where I spent my entire life producing puppies and likely living in a dark, tiny area. So, as you can imagine, I havnt had much exposure to people and the outside world. I havnt experienced the love and dedication of a family and everything I know I deserve. I’m so excited to find a family that will be very patient with me as I build confidence and get used to being outside around the noises and sounds. I’m hoping one day I will enjoy a backyard and being in walks (but I’m not quite there yet!).

When I’m inside my foster home, I’m much more at ease. My incredible foster mom and dad give me so much love, I really enjoy cuddling and being around them, as I know they won’t hurt me. My canine and feline foster siblings have also been amazing to live with. I trust them both and enjoy being around them (although I’m not quite engaging in play with them yet).

I’m also such a good girl in the car and am doing very well with my house training, my foster mom and dad tell everyone what a fast learner I am!

I am looking for a family who lives outside of the city and who will take my introductions and getting used to my new life, very slow. I know I will be the best companion and can’t wait to meet my new family. I’m such a beautiful, sweet girl with so much love to give.

Amber

  • Breed: American Bulldog Mix
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 4 years
  • Weight: 63lbs
  • Needs: another dog

Gorgeous Amber joined our rescue from a local shelter. She is 4 years old and is extremely sweet and charming. With those personality traits she was very popular and found an owner very quickly. Sadly, her adopter had a medical crisis and she was returned.

Amber is an amazing dog, but like most dogs (and humans!) She is still in need of perfecting her skillset on her ongoing quest to thrive. Working on leash manners and understanding that jumping on people and giving them slobbery kisses isn’t always welcomed. This is not aggression but sheerly out of pure excitement and affection! She is a quick study and has shown great improvements already in the last few months since joining us. Remember our mantra; Perfect dogs are not born, they are trained.

Her foster parents say she is the perfect house guest when she is left alone. Not showing any signs of separation anxiety and actually seems to just take a nap. However, she likes to remind her fosters that beautiful girls should be pet and worshipped! So you may find her nudging you for exactly that kind of attention as this girl would love to be spoiled.

This social butterfly LOVES human and dog attention and is the equivalent of the Walmart Greeter in her neighborhood. She is loving her foster brother and is learning a lot from him. She’s one smart cookie who loves to show off new tricks that she learns.
Overall, this sweet love bug is just a bundle of goofball energy and we believe she would be an amazing addition to the right family.

Maxine

  • Breed: Shepherd Mix
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 2
  • Weight: 35 pounds
  • Needs:

Do you need stability in your life? Most humans need stability in their lives to thrive and survive. Whether this is financially, relationships, jobs, it’s all important to our success in life and It’s no different for our dogs.

We are currently looking for a home that provides consistency, routine, training and a sense of security to our beautiful 2 year old shepherd mix Maxine. She is 35 pounds of pure submissive sweetness. In a very short period of time she has moved from the shelter to multiple foster homes. Her ideal family would be experienced dog owners with no small kids (18 and up). Slow and proper introduction with humans and dogs is a must.

Maxine’s heart is filled with an insatiable love for play! For her, play is not just an activity; it’s a way of life. A dog (or more) her size and bigger is the best fit for this active girl. Being outside of the city with a backyard would be ideal.

For Maxine devotion extends to the very core of her being. Once you let her give you all the sniffs she will sit by your side for a pet and is content. She attaches quickly and will be your best friend.

We are looking for a foster to adopt home for Maxine. Team Dog Resue will support the foster family with medical and behavioural needs until she is adoption ready. In her presence, one discovers a loyal friend, a canine confidante, and a devoted companion. We really just want to see her in a stable and loving home.

Please fill out an application for our beautiful girl!

Max

  • Breed: Aussie/Border Collie X
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 7 months
  • Weight:
  • Needs: Backyard, exercise, continued puppy training, socialization with other dogs.

Hi! My name is Max and I’m 7 months old. Everyone’s best guess is that I am an Australian Shepherd mix, possibly with some border collie too. These are breeds that require a fair amount of exercise so that’s important to consider if you’re thinking of adopting me. I love my walkies. I usually get at least 3 a day, sometimes 4 and that’s just perfect for me.

I have been with my wonderful foster family for about a month now and they say that I’m the bestest boy! I have made great strides since I arrived at my home here. At first, I didn’t understand that I was supposed to go potty outside. I’d go for long walks and come in the house to ‘use the bathroom’. With some excellent help and patience from my foster mom and dad, I learned that it’s safe to go outside and I haven’t had an accident in the house for over a week now! When I first arrived, I was terrified of stairs, but I’ve mastered those like a champ now. Everyone says I’m very smart.

I don’t mean to do the bragging thing but I’ve been told that I’m very handsome and I sure was a fan favourite when I was at the vet for my check up recently. Everybody wanted a little cuddle and I was more than happy to give some to all the nice people there. I got a clean bill of health which made me so happy! I was also really well behaved and liked the car ride there and back. The car doesn’t bother me one bit.

I LOVE other dogs. We had another visiting pup here for a week and I really, really wanted him to play but he wasn’t that into it. I forced him to love me and we even shared a bed for an afternoon nap. How’s that for being convincing he he? It’s not mandatory that I have another dog in my furever home but it sure would be a bonus. Doggy daycare would be a great option for me too!

I do go in my crate when I’m home alone but when someone is home, which is most of the time, I’m pretty trustworthy as long as you hide the remote controls and shoes!

I am looking for a home with a fully fenced backyard since I am nowhere near being trusted to be off-leash as I’m still a youngster. I also need to get outside often for potty breaks so a yard is imperative (that’s a huge word for someone my age)!

If you think I’m the guy for you, please send an e-mail to my Adoption Coordinator, Michele at [email protected]

Prepare yourself for an overdose of cuteness! At only 8-weeks-old, Baker and Summit, a perfect mix of border collie and pure fluffiness, are ready to charm their way into your heart!
 
Baker, the bolder of the two, is a ball of energy and charm. While he may start off a bit shy in new situations, his playful spirit quickly emerges. He’s the maestro of puppy playtime, and you can count on him to instigate all sorts of adorable antics.

And when it comes to winning him over, it’s all about the ear rubs. They’re like magic buttons that transport him into a world of puppy bliss.
 
Like most puppies, Baker has a lot of energy and would do best in a home with puppy experience and a yard. He’s at an age where he’s soaking in knowledge like sponges. He needs someone willing to guide him through housetraining, leash manners, and basic commands, giving him the enriched environment he needs to thrive.

  • Needs: Older Children, No Cats.

The last time we posted Rider, you saw him walking out of the shelter where he had been for the past two years because of being involved in a cruelty investigation. He has since been decompressing and experiencing what it means to live in a loving home for the first time in his life. We are pleased to announce he is now available for adoption! If you love big dogs, Rider just may be the guy for you! During his time in his foster home we have had a chance to learn a lot about him, and he is truly the most resilient dog. He has adjusted so well to living in a home, and his foster family absolutely adores him. It’s also safe to say that Rider loves them right back. After two years in the shelter, he finally has a view…and he takes full advantage of it, lying on the porch in the sun looking out over the backyard as much as he can. He loves his walks but is also happy to soak up all the cuddles his foster home will give. Rider is about 70 pounds and is housetrained. Because he spent such a long time in shelter, he will need some basic training (e.g., leash walking etc). If you think Rider might be a good fit for you, please apply on our website! You can also reach out to his adoption coordinator Sonya at [email protected] with any questions.

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.

Meet Rocky, Coffee’s Adorable Littermate! 🐕🐾

Name: Rocky
Age: 4-Months

Rocky, just like his brother Coffee, is a young, jubilant pup whose tri-colour coat and floppy ears add to his irresistible charm. At about 20 lbs now, he’s expected to reach a healthy and hearty 50-60 lbs.

Rocky’s World
Rocky’s world is one big, exciting playground. Every corner holds something new and thrilling for him to explore.

Learning and Growing Together
As a young pup, Rocky is at the very start of his learning journey. Just like Coffee, he’s figuring out the basics – house training, leash manners, and simple commands. Rocky needs a patient and consistent teacher who can guide him with kindness and positive reinforcement, helping him navigate the path from a playful puppy to a well-behaved adult dog.

The Cuddler and The Mischief Maker
A heart full of love, Rocky adores cuddles and will often seek out laps for some cozy affection. But, watch your slippers! In true puppy fashion, he finds them irresistibly chewable. His playful mischiefs are all part of his charming personality.

A Friend to All

Hank

  • Breed: Pug Mix
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 11
  • Weight: 12.5 kg
  • Needs:

Introducing Hank! Hank is a pug mix that ended up at a humane society after being found as a stray. Because shelters are not easy places for senior dogs to be, he was transferred to us, and has been making himself at home with his wonderful foster. Hank is approximately 11 years old, and although he looks grumpy, he is a sweet dog with a ton of personality! He enjoys his walks, and his naps, but what he loves more than anything else in the world is….food. When hank got to us he was a little bit overweight and required dental surgery, but his foster has worked diligently to help him lose a few pounds. He is also all healed up from his dentistry and we are happy to report his adorable snaggle tooth is still intact!

Hank is an easy-going dog who loves his people and wants to hang out with them all the time. He is housetrained, and would do best in a home with easy access to outside. He would be fine as an only dog, but could also live with another dog in the home as long as that dog was a good match for his laid back energy. Hank deserves a soft place to spend his retirement years and we can’t wait to find him his forever family! If you think you might be the perfect fit please reach out to his adoption coordinator Sonya at [email protected].

His future family should see these formative months as an enriching journey, shaping Coffee into a well-behaved, happy adult dog.

Raiden

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

Beautiful Raiden was found in the desert when she was just a puppy. She was alone and scared, but thankfully a rescuer in Bahrain decided they had to help her. She 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 a very gentle nature. She was welcomed by one of our incredible fosters and has spent the past few months unwinding & thriving, and showing us why she is SO deserving of her happily ever after.

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 gentle, sensitive and quiet. She loves spending hours outside, either on walks or hanging out in the backyard, chasing squirrels. Raiden does love her walks, (she’s great on a leash!) and her adopter will build a relationship with her through activity. Raiden will be reserved at first, but once you’re earned her trust, you will be greeted with a wagging tail and she’ll keep you company on the couch. She’s independent and can be a little stubborn – she has to choose to do something, and as long as her adopter gives her time and space to build trust, she’s very obedient. Raiden is definitely more comfortable with women and she would thrive in more of a quiet environment. 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. Because she’s been through so much, she would thrive in a quiet home without young children, and in a more suburban setting. She is currently fostered in a home with both dogs and cats, but is mainly happy in her own company.

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

Pepper

  • Breed: Poodle
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 3 Years Old
  • Weight:
  • Needs: Fenced Backyard

Meet Pepper, the sweetest 3-year-old female poodle with the most endearing puppy dog eyes. Pepper’s past was marred by the confines of a puppy mill, but her future holds the promise of a brighter and more loving chapter. While she’s still quite timid in her foster home, her potential shines through.

Pepper’s journey to recovery has been marked by baby steps. She finds solace in the corner of the couch, her safe haven, and while exploring makes her nervous, she’ll bravely follow you into the next room but will retreat to the familiar couch once she knows you’ve spotted her.

Pepper’s true personality blossoms once trust is established. She craves affection and cherishes moments of belly rubs, head scratches and chin rubs. If you sit beside her on the couch, she might even extend her paw, gently urging you to pet her more.

Her favourite place in the world is the backyard, where she can let loose and enjoy the freedom she deserves. You might catch her doing joyful zoomies, which not only warms your heart but also gives her the exercise she needs. Unfortunately, due to her fear of the leash, Pepper is currently unable to go for walks.

We are searching for a special family for Pepper -people who will grant her the time and space she needs to build her confidence. A home with a yard is ideal, as it allows her to revel in her favourite outdoor activities. While she’s currently timid and apprehensive about the world beyond, we believe that with patience and gentle encouragement, Pepper will one day be ready to explore new horizons.

Pepper is a sweet and affectionate girl, ready to offer boundless love to the right family. If you have a quiet home, and are willing to be the loving, patient family Pepper needs, you’ll witness the transformation of a timid soul into a beloved companion, and your hearts will be forever touched by this sweet poodle’s journey to happiness.

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.
