Maple

My name is Maple, and I’m an international adoption that didn’t work out, so I’m still looking for that special family.

I’m from Lebanon, and I’ve been here a year now, looking to find the right home.

I’m a mix of unknown origin as I was found on the streets. I’m about 3 years old, and a very sweet girl, weighing about 70 lbs.

I’m an active girl, but still very nervous around new things. However I’m super friendly and love all people. I’m looking for an energetic family as I love to run, play and spend time with my people.

I’m in a foster home with kids, dogs and Guinea pigs and love everyone. I’m easily adaptable to new situations, I’m even crate trained.

If you’d like to know me better to see if we could be “partners”, start by getting a form and go from there.

Daisy Duke

I’m Daisy Duke, a 7 year old daschund/chihuahua mix.

I’m sweet as can be, very quiet, live everyone and everything.

My old dad has gotten sick and could no longer care for me, do I was brought to Sophie’s Dog Adoption.

I’m a little chunky as I was used to eating table scraps but have been trimming down.

I’m healthy, love going for walks, quiet and housetrained. What more can you get? I’m the ideal companion for anyone.

If you think I could become your soulmate, put in an application!

Augustus

I’ve been named Augustus, because I was saved in August.

You see, I’m a 10 month old, male, puppymill dog and my life could have been been very different than what I will get to experience now.

I’m supposed to be a Lhasa Apso mix, but I’m too tall. I weigh about 20 lbs as I’m rather slim. I could have some Schnauzer, it’s a guess.

I had hair pretty long hair however I needed a grooming and a fresh start, so we’re letting my hair grow in nicely. You’ll need to brush me regularly if you want me to look good!

I’m ok with other dogs. I’m in a foster home and making progress every day. I’m getting a little better at discovering this freedom and new experiences. 

I’m still a little uncomfortable sometimes. I need a confident leader to show me what to do. I’m good at doing my business outside but still have some occasional accidents. 

I’m not dominant at all with other dogs but I’m not submissive either. I’m good at communicating if I need space.

I don’t trust people much yet, so I avoid contact for now but my foster mom says I have so much potential. 

I need to be exposed to everyone and everything. I’m very brave and want to learn and experience life. 

I just need someone to show me the world and work with me. 

I dont react to cats and I don’t bark…for now. Only when I’m a little scared. I have no separation anxiety so you’ll need to NOT “feel sorry” for me and render me needy for your presence. I’m crate trained (duh) and totally clean in it.

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

Tino the Tripod

My name is Tino and I’m a tripod. I came to this beautiful country just before the ban so I’ve been waiting for my new home for a year now. I was about 2 years old, so that makes me almost 3 years old now.

I’m a beautiful mutt, a common street dog, from Lebanon, and some idiot decided to hit me with his car.  It’s kind of a “sport” over there. Thankfully someone witnessed it, and rescued me.

My leg couldn’t be saved, so amputation was the way to go. And “go”, I can! You’d never know I am missing a leg. I can run, play, jump, climb stairs, just like any other smart dog. 

I’m an active dog who LOVES people, I greet everyone who comes over and I have a lovely goofy side! I even sing karaoke with my foster mom! We can also do “car karaoke” since I adore going for rides.

Even though I’m a sweetheart and very affectionate, I am jealous and protective when it comes to other pets. I don’t want to share my human with another dog, and certainly NOT a cat. Therefore it is best that I be “the” dog in your life. Kids can be a part of that, if they’re gentle and dog savvy.

I can stay home while you’re gone, and my big voice would scare a robber.  Of course I know that my bathroom is outdoors, so no worries there.

My one and only FAULT, I’m strong. Walking me can be challenging especially if I see dogs, squirrels or other critters on my walks. I’m a big strong boy, so you need to be stronger or willing to teach me. It won’t get better without help! I’d rather run around free, but in this free world, I need to be on a leash I can’t run free. The irony šŸ¤£.

I’ll make you laugh, I’ll keep you warm, I’ll be your best friend if you give me that chance.

Pawla

My name is Pawla, and I’m a street dog from Morocco.

I was rescued by a lady who used to feed stray cats, when she noticed me, a young puppy, coming around to get some food too.

It was obvious I had a bad leg, a break that healed on its own. So she took me off the streets and eventually arranged for me to come to Canada.

I’ve been here for a while but nobody really worked on my socialization so Sophie’s Dog Adoption took me in and I am learning to go on walks outside and explore this new country.

I am very shy, still skittish of a lot, so I’m looking for a very patient person or family to slowly bring me to being a “normal” and confident girl.

I’m still young (-2 years old)and don’t have a prey drive do could live with cats or other critter.

Dogs I’m totally fine with. Having a dog friend could maybe even help me learn to be “free” of my past.

Bravy

I was named Bravy by my rescuer in Lebanon! 

I’m a 6 year old female Lab mix. I was found in Lebanon as a stray, and I don’t remember my past, but I know for sure I have been through a lot.

As a stray in Lebanon, I was used for target practice and became blind in one eye. I have to tell you that I get around very well, it doesn’t affect me, just my look.

I walk fairly well on leash, I’m housetrained, I do well with people and dogs, but have not been tested with cats.

I also love car rides and have no problems getting around.

I love the attention, so I can be a bit jealous if other dogs are around, so I would prefer to be the only pet! I love playing with other dogs, but I don’t want a roommate.

Choopie

My name is Choopie, but I’m also known as Max. Obviously, I’m a male. I’m 3 years old and of the Spitz family.

I came from Lebanon back in 2021 as an International adoption, but here we are, a year and a half later and I’m looking for a new home.

I’m super cute, super friendly with everyone, great with dogs and even young kids. But I also became the boss of my home as they were so nice. I had my family wrapped around my little finger.

Us little cuties know how to manipulate and use our teeth when we’re not happy. So at first, I observed and learned. Since they felt sorry for me, I was given so much love! I loved it, I loved them, I even loved their dog! They wanted to make me happy, and they did!

But with time, I decided I was going to lead this pack so things would always go my way! 

Well, that didn’t work out so as planned. They didn’t care for my biting much, so here I am with Sophie’s Dog Adoption getting restructured. 

Sophie says “No more manipulating my new family”, so I will need to be super structured and you’ll need to be in charge. Otherwise, I will take charge again, and it looks like biting instead of saying “no”, is not really tolerated!

I’m learning while in foster care, but you will need to continue with the structure. I’m small enough not to overpower you, so teach me right from wrong and I’ll make you proud.

As all dogs do, I want to make you happy and become your best friend. But just like children, I need structure and discipline as well as love.

Drake

I’m Drake, and even though I’m no rapper, I too have a talent. I’m missing a leg, and I can run and play as well as anyone!

I’m a survivor of the horrendous streets of the Middle East, and I’m hoping to find a wonderful home who won’t see my missing limb as a reason to pass me up.

I’m about 3 years old, was found with my leg already missing, and it was so traumatic I cannot remember what happened! But I am a survivor and just LOVE people. My mix is totally unknown, it’s anybody’s guess. Might have a little Husky, not sure.

I’m ok with kids, super gentle and good with dogs and getting used to the cat in my foster home.

Hawaiian Chico

Aloha Canada! I’m Hawaiian Chico, and I just arrived from a shelter in Hawaii where I spent most of my life 

I’m about 3 years old, most likely a Catahoula mix, but Sophie thinks I may have some coonhound.

I’m super gentle, very shy still but doing well in my foster home, which consists of 4 humans, 4 dogs and one cat.

I would probably be fine with kids over 8, as I’m a very gentle soul.

I’m looking to finally have a home, with people who will love me forever. I’m used to getting love at the shelter, but from staff and volunteers who leave at the end of the day.

I want my own bed, my own family, my own “house” and maybe a yard. It’s the American Dream, and I think I can reach it in Canada. After all, we’re “neighbours”.

DOGS FOR ADOPTION

The adoption process through Sophieā€™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 donā€™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.

Bunny

My name is Bunny and I “hopped” on a flight out of Hawaii to come to Canada for a chance at a good life.

I’m about 2 years old, my breed mix is unknown but I weigh a good 60 lbs.  I was living in a shelter in Hawaii that had become overcrowded and lacks funds, so life there had become not so great.

I have discovered a dog bed, and human attention, and can drink water when I want! The simple things Canadian dogs have.

I’m super sweet, and gentle with everyone, and would be good with kids too.

Cats and Chihuahuas, not so sure yet. I would need to learn cohabitation with them. 

If you think I could be the one for you, please put in your application by visiting http://www.sophiesdogadoption.com/application-forms/adoption-form/

Rain

I’m Rain and I was found on the highway in the pouring rain in Beirut last year and was flown to Montreal in April 2022 for a chance at a good life.

Even though I’ve been in foster care for a year, I 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 my new life.

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, it’s been a challenge. I don’t like being grabbed by the collar, and I still hate the idea of a leash. I just don’t move.

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 show mild resource guarding with my food. I could possibly live with older kids and a cat.

I’ve been crate trained, but I am fine being left alone. It may be a good idea at the beginning 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 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.
