The adoption process through Sophie’s Dog Adoptions consists of filling out an application form to adopt, a full screening is done to ensure that the dogs I place will in fact be going to good, forever homes. These dogs have been through a lot already, and don’t deserve to come back again and again. The right family / person is out there for each dog. The process can sometimes be longer than with other rescue groups or organizations, but an animal is for life and it should not be something to rush into. Once I am satisfied that the family/person meets the criteria to adopt one of my dogs, then the adoption is finalized with a contract. ADOPTING A PET IS NOT SOMETHING TO TAKE LIGHTLY, IT IS, IN MY OPINION, THE SAME AS ADOPTING A CHILD.
I am Sanjaghak, and I come from the mean streets of Iran. I’m a beautiful girl, most likely Collie mixed with Spaniel. Hard to say!
I was found a couple of months ago, just laying there unable to move anything but my head.
I was taken to a great veterinary hospital where they operated on my spine. Thanks to them, I have started walking again and making significant daily progress.
I’m about 8 months old, so I have plenty of time to get stronger in my back legs. Right now I am able to walk around, but as soon as I get a little excited, I fall over. My walking is still very wobbly.
I am looking for a home that will continue to exercise me, possibly with the help of a wheelchair so that I can enjoy life like any other dog.
I’m super friendly, gentle, good with dogs, and people of all ages and sizes, and probably fine with cats. I don’t have a mean bone in me!
If you think you’d like to adopt me, put in your application! I will give you all the love back tenfold!
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!
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.
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.
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 .
I’m Rain and I was found on the highway in the pouring rain in Beirut.
I arrived in Montreal this April and am still super nervous. I’m not used to human contact, so I’m looking for a home that will give me time to adjust to home.
I’m scared but not aggressive, however, touching me is a thing I still don’t like. Not having ever had a collar or leash, that freaks me out.
So I need a home with a fully fenced-in yard so I can go in and out on my own. I’m good with dogs but do show some mild resource guarding with my food. I am not a good candidate for children or cats.
I’m ok in the crate, which is preferred when you’re out just in case.
I’m about 3 years old with a lifetime of learning still to come. I am clean in the house and will scratch at the door to go out. I actually enjoy being outside now that it’s getting warm. You must supervise me however as I tend to flee. I always look sad. I recently had puppies when I was found but my rescuers were unsuccessful in locating them. It is very important that you do not feel sorry for me, however. I need you to be confident and surround me with positive energy so I can feed that off of you.
If you think I’m the one you want to love and help become the balanced and fulfilled pooch I deserve to be.
I am a 5-year-old female American Pitbull Terrier-American Bulldog mix. I weigh about 50 lbs and I’m in good health.
I am an amazing girl originally rescued in Lebanon and I’m now looking for my forever home here in Montreal.
I am quite shy at first but once I start trusting you I love giving hugs and will be your best friend. I will follow your lead and make sure you’re safe.
I don’t pull on walks but I do run after squirrels and cats. While I walk, my attention stays on who is walking me. I don’t bark except when I play with my doggy friends.
I love going to the dog park and making new friends .
I run as if I was still a puppy. I’m still quite young at only 5 years old and need my daily exercise.
I am house-trained and wait for you to get up so we can take a nice morning walk. I love car rides.
I am incredibly sweet and bright. Very eager to please and engaging. To know me is to love me. I have displayed some prey drive when I see cats or squirrels on my walks so I would not be a good match to live with small animals. I have not displayed any type of resource guarding.
If you have good knowledge of my breed and decent dog training experience, I just might be the ideal pooch for you. If you’re ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life.
