I’m Frisson, and yes I was French! My owner died and I was left at a shelter at my ripe old age of 12 years.

I’m still very healthy, had a recent dental, and quite active and playful for my age. I also have the cutest underbite. It adds to my charm, and I am a charmer!

I love attention, being petted, snuggling with you, but I don’t like being picked up. I can, and might, bite.

With time, I’m sure I can get used to a new family wanting to pick me up, but for now…better not.

I want nothing more than to find a new home for my Golden years. Ideally a retired person or couple, I’m active but don’t see myself with kids at my age.

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.

My name is SIA and I am deaf but that doesn’t lit me.

I’m a 2.5-year-old English Setter who came from Lebanon where I was found tied in a bag, and thrown away like a piece of garbage, possibly because I was not a good working dog. I am extremely sweet despite my unknown past and my fur is as soft as velvet!

I’m an eager girl, social with people, kids and most dogs, (but can be in my own world sniffing and exploring).

I enjoy playtime and cuddles and make my foster family laugh every day with my silliness.

I currently live with a dog-savvy cat and the cat is the boss in our relationship. If there is a cat in my new family, please know it will take me time to work out our relationship.

I am house-trained, but I have my routine outside and need time to relax to do my thing. I would thrive in an active home that can provide me with ongoing structure and training. 

Hiking, biking, and brain games would all make me a very happy girl. 

I would make a good family dog with older kids, or with a couple. I am very food-driven which makes training easy. However, when I’m outside, the distractions can be too much for me to focus and may choose to not obey.

A securely fenced yard is a must for me as Setters are known to follow our noses if left unattended. Knowing my breed would be an asset to my new family!

My name is Moose, and I’m a 1 year old Great Dane.

I’m on the smaller size at 120lbs, but still imposing!

I’m super great with kids, but due to my size and young age, no babies or toddlers.

I’m used to living with a Pug and I’m cool with cats. I’m being rehomed due to a personal family situation, and I will be greatly missed.

I’m still young and have my whole life in front of me, so please find it in your heart to give me a new home.

Choosing the Right Dog for You from an Adoption Service

If you are thinking about adding a new addition to your family, there is no better time to think about adopting a dog from an adoption service. Dogs, like humans, have different personalities, so it can be difficult to find the right dog for you. Use this article to get an idea of the personality of the dogs at an adoption shelter and how to choose the right one for you.

What personality traits do dogs have?

Before you adopt, it is important to know what personality traits are typically found in dogs. Some dogs are very affectionate and love to be around people. Others are more independent. Some have a high energy level and may require a lot of exercises. Some dogs are really good with kids and others are not. It is important to think about what personality traits you are looking for in a dog before you adopt.

How to choose the right dog for you

If you are looking to adopt a dog from an adoption service, there are plenty of things to consider. Not only should you consider the size and age of the dog, you should also consider the personality and temperament of the dog. It is important to know what kind of dog you are looking for so that you can find a good match. It is also important to find out if the dog you are looking for has been tested for disease and if it has been spayed or neutered. It is also important to consider the price of the dog. It is important to find a dog with a low adoption fee and one that is not too expensive.

There are many different types of dogs available for adoption from animal shelters, but not all of them are suitable for everyone. Some dogs are more energetic than others, some are better for living in apartments, and some are more likely to chew. It is important to consider these things before you adopt a dog from an adoption service. If you are looking for a specific type of dog, it is best to visit the service yourself and speak with the staff. The staff will be able to tell you about the dogs in the service and what is best for you.

One of the best things about adopting a dog from an adoption service is that they are already house-trained. They have been living in a home and are used to being around humans and other animals. They are also used to the sounds and smells of their home. If you are interested in adopting a dog, you should consider going to a local adoption group. These groups will often have a variety of dogs available for adoption and they will also help you find the perfect dog for you.

Veterinary Costs: What you can expect when caring for your pet

Caring for your pet can be expensive. With that in mind, it’s important to know how much it will cost you for them to get the medical attention and care that they need. In this blog, I will outline some of the costs of caring for your pet and how you can prepare for these costs when caring for your pet.

Vets in the United States and Canada charge between $75 and $1,000 for a routine spay or neuter surgery. This can be a lot of money, but it is important to know what to expect when you have your pet spayed or neutered. It is important to remember that the cost of the surgery is not what you should be concerned about. It is the cost of the lifetime of the pet that you should be worried about. The cost of the surgery is just a small part of the cost of the pet.

Veterinary Costs

Veterinary costs can vary depending on the type of pet you have. However, the average cost for a small animal is about $3,000 per year, and a large animal can cost about $6,000 per year. These costs will likely include a monthly pet insurance plan, a visit to the vet for checkups, and the cost of medical treatment. It is important to remember that the cost of medical treatment will vary depending on the type of pet you have. The cost of medical treatment can range from $30 for a basic wellness exam, to $1,000 for a pet with complicated needs.

How to prepare for veterinary costs

One of the big costs of owning a pet is the vet bills. Many people don’t think about how much it will cost to care for their pet until they actually need to take them to the vet. But it is important to get your pet checked out and vaccinated by a vet before the first day of owning a pet. This will help to lower the cost of veterinary bills. You should also make sure that you have enough money to cover the costs of veterinary care. This is important because many people don’t realize that the costs of veterinary care can get really expensive. You should also make sure that you have enough cash to cover the costs of your pet’s health. If you’re worried about not having enough money to cover the costs of your pet, you should consider setting up a savings account that is specifically for the cost of your pet.

How to save money on veterinary costs

It is important for pet owners to know the costs associated with their pet’s care. There are many things you can do to save money on veterinary costs. One of the best ways to save money on veterinary costs is to be proactive about your pet’s health. By making sure your pet is healthy, you can avoid costly medical procedures. Some other ways to save on veterinary costs include: 1. Getting your pet spayed or neutered. This will greatly reduce the risk of your pet contracting a sexually transmitted disease. 2. Having a pet’s teeth cleaned twice a year at a low cost. 3. Making sure your pet is up to date on its vaccinations. If you follow these tips, you will be able to save a lot of money on your pet’s care.


I’m Leyla, a 3-year-old, 18lbs, female Terrier mix (don’t shed) who was sent to a shelter after my parents divorced in Turkey.  

Thankfully I was taken out and sent to Canada as an international adoption, but I’m not working out so my human reached out to Sophie’s Dog Adoption to help find me the perfect home.

I am very calm, very well-behaved, housetrained, and crate trained. I love humans, and enjoy cuddles and playing with someone. 

I’m great on a leash until I see cats or squirrels. Then I want to chase them but I’m working on it! Squirrels are a new critter for me, and I’ve yet to sniff one up close!

I’m still working on getting more socialization with other dogs, as in my country, I mostly stayed in the yard. I’m not a fan of big dogs, and meeting on a leash is not my thing. However, I like all poodle mixes!

Kids are ok, as long as they are as well-behaved as me. No grabbing, pulling or pushing. Kids over 12 would be my choice. I am easygoing and just a darling to be around.

I am the sweetest dog. Loving, obedient, intelligent- quick learner and I have a sassy personality.

I would make a great companion for a couple, a family with kids 10+, or retirees. I would love a home with a backyard or big patio/terrace so I can play. I’d also be fun as a hiking or running buddy.

If you think I’m the pearl you’re looking for, you might be right!

Max B

I’m Max B, and I arrived from Lebanon back in September.

My original bio was not quite accurate, I was made out to be dog selective, but I’m really great with all dogs.

I do become a little protective of my “home”, so I definitely need to be socialized as soon as I enter your family. I need to know that strangers can be friends.

I’m crate trained, but I can also stay at home while you’re gone without getting in trouble. I’m respectful of your belongings, and will not chew your shoes!

I walk like a charm on a leash but can become reactive at certain things I see. Dogs, some men, and squirrels, so I need a leader who will not feel sorry for me but will help me embrace this new life.

If you think you’re the one for me, put in an application. Who knows, you may be the one for me!

You will not regret it, I promise!
