Max B

I’m Max B and I also come from Beirut. My sister Tundra arrived last spring and found a wonderful home here in Canada.

Now there’s a ban, and I’m one of the lucky ones who made it here in time. So I’m looking for that special home too.

I’m about 3 years old and have a sad story, but that did not stop me from becoming a sweet and loving dog to humans.

Other dogs might not be my cup of tea as I’d really like to live a new life, with no competition for food, treats, or love! I can get a little macho around dominant dogs. So until I settle in, I don’t really need to meet other dogs.

I want human love, and to learn how to become Man’s Best Friend in this land of the free!

You will not regret it, I promise!

Sindy

I’m Sindy, I’m 2 years old and a petite Armenian girl of 15 lbs. My breed you ask? Don’t know.

You see, I was rescued from the streets of Armenia so nobody knows my background.

I’m missing an eye, but that only adds to my charm. I’m very shy, but coming out of my shell thanks to my foster siblings.

I’m friendly, easy-going, loving, and truly hoping to find a wonderful home to start this new life.

If you think I could be the one for you, put in an application.

Lucky Girl

Hello Canada! I’m one Lucky Girl who made it before the upcoming ban, and I’m so grateful.

I’m just a little over a year old, my mix….maybe Doberman, Rottie, or Lab? Whichever I may be, I am super sweet and absolutely gorgeous.

I’m great with other dogs and all people, but I haven’t been tested with cats. There are none iny foster home’s neighborhood to chase after!

I’m desperately looking for a true home I can call mine, as I was rescued as a young girl of 8 months and want to live the true Canadian Experience. The one that all the others have written home about who have come before me!

If you want to give me that life, don’t hesitate to put in your application before someone else does! I’m a gem of a girl.

Rosie B

I’m Rosie B, from Beirut. I’m a shepherd mix, about a year old, and rescued from the streets.

I am a little shy at first, but once I know you, I’m very playful and affectionate.

I’m young, so need daily exercise, but not a hyperactive dog. I am crate trained, as a house is fairly new to me, so it helps with my bathroom schedule.

I learn very quickly, love playing with other dogs, I’m fine with cats, and generally love nice people.

If you think I could become a good friend, put in your application!

Windy

My name is Windy, and I’m a one-year-old Lebanese rescue. I’m an alert and lively dog, most likely a husky mix.

I was raised in a free for all environment and as such did not receive much in the way of training, inside or outside the home. It will require patience and alertness on your part to give me structure and boundaries. I’m an early riser and have learned to signal when I need out.

My first attempts at walking on a leash and collar were reasonable but once cats and squirrels were in my eyesight, there was little control with just a leash.  Since then, my foster has been using a Halti as it gives you more control over me.

I’m also reactive to loud noises in the immediate vicinity, such as buses and trucks, as well as dogs on the other side of the street who bark at me. 

I love chasing and playing with dogs, but I don’t always know when to quit. I’m also a fan of running after balls and playing fetch.

All in all, I’m a young gal who needs the right environment to thrive and learn. I can counter surf as I’m quite tall, so no food unattended or it will disappear!

I have “snapped” a few times so looking for someone who will truly work with me to understand my needs and work on my general behavior. Everything is so new and different to me, so I’m quite nervous at times.

If you’d like to get to know me, put in an application.

Kira B

Hello Canada! I’m newly arrived from Lebanon and loving it so far!

I’ve been named Kira B, and I was rescued after being hit by a car. I was taken to a vet and operated on, however, some permanent nerve damage caused a tilt in my neck. But it makes me even cuter!

I’m good with dogs, cats, and people, but can get a little possessive and protective of my space and stuff (food, bones, human I’m with).

I love car rides and green spaces. I’m about a year old and waiting for that active, loving home.

My breed is totally unknown, your guess is as good as anyones! I’m about 50 lbs.

If you think I could be a good friend, go to http://www.sophiesdogadoption.com/application-forms/adoption-form/ to obtain an application form.

Chiko with a K

I’m Chiko with a K, and I’m a 12-year-old chihuahua mix.

I’ve been given up for the usual reasons, “we’re going through a divorce, my new landlord won’t accept my dog”.

I loved the kids, I’m older than both. They would cuddle and hug me, it was a sad goodbye.

I’m not keen on men….don’t trust them all.

I’m quiet and clean, I just need a routine, food, love, and a comfy bed and I’ll be happy!

If you want to give me that great home for my senior years, go to http://www.sophiesdogadoption.com/application-forms/adoption-form/ and follow the procedure to obtain an application form.

I’m still very healthy and have a few good years still to go. I’ll love you till my last breath!

Maya A

Hello Canada! I arrived from Armenia where I was rescued from Vanadzor, where people are not kind to my species.

I’ve been named Maya A, and I’m about 3 years old.  I’ve always been on my own, so the shelter was overwhelming.

I was given the chance to come to Canada before the ban comes into effect, in order to find someone who will want to share their home with me.

I’m not very big, about 45 lbs, and my breed is unknown. I’m scruffy, I’m a terrier, I’m blond and beautiful. Sophie considers me a pure scruffy mutt!

I get along with other dogs, I’m still very shy, not sure about leash walking, but want to be loved and love you back.

If you think I’m the girl you want to give a warm loving home to, you’ll need to be patient with me.

Start by sending in an application form that you can obtain by following the instructions at www.sophiesdogadoption.com/application-forms/adoption-form

Malika

Je m’appelle Malika, j’ai 7 ans mais j’ai de l’énergie comme si j’avais 2 ans. Je me cherche malheureusement une nouvelle famille car ma maman a eue un bébé humain et me trouve trop énergétique.

J’adore les ballades, que cela soit en voiture ou en forêt. Je suis la parfaite compagne pour partir en camping ou en road trip!

J’adore chercher les bâtons, les balles et courir après les écureuils, les lievres ou les chats. Donc pas de petits animaux a la maison!

Je connais les commandes de bases : assis, couché, donne la patte, dans ton lit etc.

Je suis très affectueuse et toujours à la recherche de câlins, j’adore avoir de l’attention.

J’ai besoin d’apprendre a ne pas sauter sur les gens que je rencontre, mais c’est par amour!

Je ne jappe jamais mis à part quand je suis très excitée, ou si j’ai peur de quelque chose. Je peux gémir si je suis très excité et quand je m’impatiente. Je peux rester seule car je suis déjà habituée à attendre le retour du boulot de mon maître.

Je m’entends généralement bien avec les autres chiens qui sont dominants et confiants.

Lorsque je suis à la maison, je dors sur mon coussin, je prends des bains de soleil sur le balcon. Je ne fais pas de possession avec ma nourriture ni avec mes os.

Idéalement une personne ou couple actif ou même une famille avec adolescents serait l’idéal pour moi.

Mettez votre demande et il me fera un plaisir de vous rencontrer.

Bubble

Hi! I’m Bubble and my name suits me!

I’m a bubbly, active, friendly Shih-Tzu mix and I was rescued from the streets of Lebanon.

After the big explosion, people have been having a rough time keeping their dogs, and so I was dumped on the streets.

I’m about 4 years old, and obviously before being abandoned, I was a little spoiled.  I like things my way.

So I’m looking for a structured and quiet home, ideally one person.  I can have attitude and will snap if you push. 

However, I’m funny, affectionate and get along with everyone including dogs and cats. But strangers must approach me carefully. I don’t care for fast movements 

If you think I could be the guy for you, get the form and send it in!

Toby 8

My name is Toby #8, and I’m looking for a home through no fault of mine.

I’m a 7 year old Chocolate Lab. My dad passed away and my mom is moving into a home where dogs are not allowed.

I am fully vetted and in good health, despite being overweight at the moment.

I’ve been lacking exercise, as dad used to take me for long walks and even running.

I’m good with dogs but have never lived with cats. I’m well behaved, mellow and easy-going. 

I love car rides and the outdoors, but I also love to cuddle. 

Young or turbulent children are not ideal for me but dog-savvy kids 10 yrs and up would be fine.

If you’re interested in me, please download our adoption form ASAP and send it in.

Rhône

Do you like Chihuahuas? I may be the girl for you. Here’s my story, you decide.

My name is Rhône and unfortunately, my old Mom passed away 3 months ago and I was left orphaned.

I’m 7 years old but rather chubby at 6 lbs. I was 8.8 lbs when I first arrived! You see, Mom never bought me dog food. She’s made a plate for her and one for me. I never left her side, went everywhere with her in a bag, and basically, she was my world.

She couldn’t take me for walks as she was legally blind and couldn’t go far but I would love to go walking around your neighborhood. Due to my eating habits, my teeth were not good but I had a cleaning done and only needed a couple of teeth extracted. My back legs are a bit wobbly from having been obese for so long so I’m looking for someone who will take real good care of me and keep me lean and fit. I am getting around much better now that I’ve lost weight. I can even go up the stairs like a pro and I’m loving my daily walks!

I get along fairly well with the dogs and cats in my foster home. I lived with a cat in my previous home. I do however prefer to be the main attraction. I’m a bit of a Diva you see. I am not suitable for children. I can stay home alone as long as you don’t make a big deal when you leave. If you think we could become BFFs, fill out an application and send it in. I am looking for a very mellow household with a maximum of 2 people .

Willy

My name is Willy, and I just arrived from Jordan. You see in my country, dogs are considered pests, not pets!

So after having been rescued from the streets where my brother Dexter and I were living, we were sent to Canada and I ended up with Sophie’s Dog Adoption at the tender age of 8 months, legally allowed to fly!!!

I am in a foster home with dogs of all sizes, a cat and two teenage kids, do I can live pretty much in any kind of home.

If you think I could finish growing up in your home, I’d be super happy and loyal to you for the test of my life.

Send in your application, Sophie is waiting for it!

Rocky B4

Another Rocky from the streets of Beirut?  That’s me! I’m known as Rocky B4, I’m about a year old and my mix is a guess. 

I’m the size of a lab, yellow/red in color, and about 60 lbs.

So far I’ve been very nice, good with other dogs, getting used to the crate, and not afraid of anything.

I have not been tested with cats, but I would be good with dog-savvy kids. I’m a little bouncy so ideally over 8 years old so I don’t knock them over.

I am eager to please and am learning rules pretty quickly.

If you think I could make your family a great companion, send in your application to info@sophiesdogadoption.com

Rocky B3

I’m another Rocky from Beirut, hence Rocky B3.

I’m a mix, your guess is as good as mine, and about 2 years old. I was rescued from the streets, but it’s obvious to my rescuers that I once lived in a home.

I’m very mellow, good with other dogs, could learn to live with cats and definitely good with people of all ages.

I will need some adjustments but having been here only a couple of days, I’ve shown that I’m very adaptable.

If you want to give me a chance at a good life with you, download the form and send it back in. I will become a loyal friend.

Finn

My name is Finn, I’m a 2 year old pointer, and I was rescued from Armenia.

I had some trauma when I was around 1yr old which led to my blindness. This took me for a loop and it took some time to adjust but I am as good as ever. 

My amazing rescuer made sure I received the care I needed by having a vet give me a physical where I was vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

Her love for me made her make arrangements so I could leave  the boarding facility, and was sent to Montreal for a chance at the best life ever.

It’s true, I am now blind in both eyes, however, I do not let this get me down. At my foster’s home I have mapped out their home and know where the steps are to go up and down, where the water is, my bed and where my buddy Lucas’s room is situated. Sometimes he closes the door so when I head to his room I bump into it. 

No worries, because I have a hard head.

I really enjoy walking and even trotting along, so if you enjoy running I would make the perfect jogging partner.  I won’t complain and I will happily let you decide where you would like to run. 

I am living with a couple of other dogs right now and am fine to be part of their pack but it’s humans I love to hang with.

Food is what drives me to counter surf so if you are not keeping an eye on your plate of food, my nose will lead me right to it, and hey, finders keepers, right?

I also enjoy the dog park where I have room to wander, explore and smell new things. There are some other nice dogs at the park and I enjoy it very much when their owners pet me. If dogs try and fight, I find it’s best just to wander away from all that drama…

 What’s fun is when my foster parents call me from far away, hearing their voice I follow the sound right up to them and prance through their legs. It’s a game we like to play..

To be honest, I do whine when wanting food, this is something I really need to work on. 

Being an independent guy , I like to wander in the back yard and even go through a fence to get to the neighbours back yard.

Other than being nearly perfect, I will bark at new noises. I have been blessed with a solid bark so I will either need to be in a home with great neighbours who love dogs or in a detached home.

Would you like a companion that is somewhat low key and doesn’t make too many demands? I would love to meet you. Please see me for what a beautiful character I am and not underestimate the amazing companion I can be. I would also be great with kids.

Sincerely, 
Finn


You can see some videos of me on instagram, petra_dog_adoption If interested in having an adoption trial with me please email, petradogadoption@gmail.com and ask for an application form. 

Axel

Hello folks, I’m Axel the 7 month old Great Dane.

I’m already weighing in at about 100 lbs, so I’m expected to be a BIG boy.

I was unfortunately given up as I have become strong and my dad could no longer walk me.

Other than needing to learn to walk on leash, I am great. Maybe a bit big for young kids, but no malice at all.

Because of my size and young age, I have not yet been neutered so Sophie will be super careful as I should ideally get neutered once fully grown and developed.

That means there could be some marking issues unless you monitor and train me accordingly.

I want to find the ONE family that will be ready to deal with me in all aspects, for the rest of my life.

If you have what it takes, download and return the application form.

I will make the best pal ever!

Pucci

My name is Pucci and I’m about 7 yrs old.  I’m  in excellent health and have the stamina of a young dog. My teeth are in super shape. I weigh about 35 lbs and most likely Poodle mix.

My foster home says I’m awesome, sweet, bright, loving and I’m wonderful with dogs and cats. 

I was used as a stud back in Lebanon but, where I was rescued from a shed where I lived. It took me some time to understand what was going on.

I have learned the basics like good leash-walking skills and obedience . I’m so eager to please that training me is easy. 

I do have a fear of men or anyone approaching me too quickly (I just bark), so you’ll want to keep me next to you on a short leash when you’re out walking me or when people come over. I can also be crated.  I very much like my crate.

I rarely bark, but I have some prey drive with small critters like squirrels and such. 

I can be mouthy when I get very excited, so ideally no young kids for me.

To apply, visit http://www.sophiesdogadoption.com/application-forms/adoption-form/ and follow the procedure to obtain an application form.

Grace A

I’ve been named Grace by my rescuers in Armenia.

I’m a petite dog, about 25 lbs and of unknown mix. I’m about 1 year old and was rescued from the streets after some kids gouged my eye out with a stick.

My wonderful rescuers decided on had a better chance at finding a loving home in Canada, so here I am.

I have no issues with getting around, being playful, active, curious and certainly affectionate.

If you’d like to be the one to give me the warmth of a home, send in your application form.

June Boy

I’ve been named June as I was rescued from the streets of Lebanon in June of last year.

I’m a mix, possibly Norwich Terrier and/or Yorkshire terrier and probably about 7 years old.

I’m a very sweet boy, quiet, cuddly, clean, however I’m deaf. So getting my attention is with signs.

I’m looking for a home who will give me the best years of my life. I really like everybody including kids, just not crazy about cats.

If you think I’m the one for you, download the form and return it by email.
