Tag Archives: Boxer



I’m the beautiful and smart Gabriella – you can call me Gabi. I am a boxer mix, about 2-3 years old and full of energy. I was found roaming the streets of Montreal, and no one ever claimed me as their lost dog. So I’ve been waiting for the right home to come along and adopt me. I love spending time with my humans, playing, taking long walks or cuddling on the couch.

If you let me snuggle with you and since I am a serial licker, you will be showered with affection too, don’t worry! I get along famously with all people, dogs and cats. I am a very social creature who loves to meet new friends.

I have absolutely no aggression whatsoever. I may be a bit too energetic for very small kids, but I also know how to be gentle. It really would depend on the kids.

I am very obedient and have shown to be a quick learner and very eager to please once I know what is expected of me. I’ve been bouncing in foster care for a while now as there are so many dogs in need, that people don’t really go to reputable rescues anymore, they’ve rather save their own dog from death row. But what do you think would have happened if I didn’t end up with Sophie and was still in a shelter or pound somewhere, I would have been put down a long time ago. So how about giving me a chance at a real home, not just temporary fosters, when I have so many things to offer the world.

An active family would be ideal: I could be a terrific jogging/roller-blade/biking partner, or a good companion to go hiking. And if agility is your thing, I will sure impress you! I need someone that would offer me lots of love and structure, because I always expect you to lead me.

No doubt that with proper training and a balanced life, I would be a fantastic and extremely loyal companion. If you think you can handle that much love in your life, then I’m the gal for you.


Je suis la belle Gabriella, mais vous pouvez m’apeller Gabi. Je suis un boxer croisé, environs 2-3 ans et pleine d’énergie. J’ai été trouvée errant les rues de Montréal, et personne ne m’a jamais réclamé comme étant leur chien perdu. Donc j’attends depuis ce temps de trouver la famille qui m’adoptera. J’adore passer du temps avec mes humains, jouer, prendre de longues marches ou simplement me blottir contre vous sur le sofa.

Si vous me laissez me coller contre vous, et puisque je donne des bisous en série, vous serez également couvert d’affection, ne vous inquiétez pas! Je m’entends à merveille avec tout le monde, les chiens et chats. Je suis une créature très sociale qui adore rencontrer de nouveaux amis.

Je n’ai absolument aucune agression. Je peux être un peu trop énergétique pour de très jeunes enfants, mais je sais aussi être très douce. Ça dépendrait vraiment des enfants.

Je suis très obéissante et ai montré que j’apprends vite et que je suis très prête à faire plaisir une fois que je sais ce qu’on attend de moi. Je me promène de famille d’accueil en famille d’accueil depuis un bout de temps car il y a tellement de chiens dans le besoin, que les gens ne vont plus vraiment dans des organismes réputables, ils préfèrent sauver leur propre chien de la mort. Mais que pensez vous qu’il me serait arrivé si je n’avais pas aboutie chez Sophie et que j’étais encore dans un refuge ou une fourrière, j’aurai été euthanasiée il y a longtemps. Donc pourquoi pas me donner une chance à une vraie famille, pas juste des familles d’accueils temporaire, car j’ai tellement de choses à offrir à ce monde.

Une famille active serait idéale; je pourrais être un compagnon idéal pour faire du jogging/roller-blade/bicyclette et un bon compagnon pour la randonnée, Et si l’agilité c’est pour vous, c’est sûr que je vous impressionnerai! J’ai besoin de quelqu’un qui pourra m’offrir beaucoup d’amour et de structure, car je m’attend toujours à ce qu’on me dirige.

Aucun doute qu’avec le bon entraînement et une vie équilibrée, je ferai une compagne de vie fantastique, et certainement fidèle. Si vous pensez pouvoir avec tout cet amour dans votre vie, je suis la fille pour vous.



I’m Bronson, and was taken off deathrow from the SPCA Montreal, where they thought me “too intense”. And Pit Stop said I didn’t look “pit” enough and dark brindled pit mixes were not popular so they would not take me under their wing.  Thank God Sophie knew about me and took me out, as I truly am a wonderful dog.  I am a young male, just under 1 year old, with a big love for life. The guess is my mix is Boxer Pitbull of sorts. I do that butt wiggle thing that both breeds do so well, and I have a fabulous smile.  And let’s not forget my beautiful, round, brown eyes!  and wait, those kisses I LOVE to give too!  Let’s just say I’ll melt your heart.

I’m in terrific shape and I have a lot of energy. I need an active person or family because I’m no couch potato. Don’t get me wrong…..snuggling with you on the couch is my favorite thing in the world but us big boys need regular exercise of course.

I received some training and know several commands (in French) and hand commands. I’m a super bright pooch. To know me is to simply fall in love with me. I walk well with a halti but will be working more on walking well on a leash just because it’s the right thing to do!  I so much want to please my new family so I never end up tied to a tree and dumped again.

My ideal home would be one with experience and time to invest in my continued training. If you want a partner to go biking, jogging, roller-blading, then I’m the guy for you.  And a plus – I love other dogs! Kids would be great too, but I am a bit of a brute when I get excited, so no toddlers for me!

Je suis Bronson et j’ai été sauvé du chemin de la mort à la SPCA Montreal, ou ils me trouvaient “trop  intense”. Et Pit Stop ont dit que je n’était pas assez  “pit”et que les mélanges pitbulls bringé foncé n’était pas populaire donc ils n’ont pas voulu me prendre sous leur aile. Une chance que  Sophie  était au courant de mon existence et m’a sorti de làé tant donné que je suis un chien formidable

Je suis un jeune mâle d’environs 1 an à peine, et avec un amour fou pour la vie. On devine que je suis un Boxer Pitbull croisé.  Je ne bat pas juste la queue, mais tout le train arrière comme ces deux races font si bien, et j’ai un sourire radiant. Et n’oublions pas mes beaux grands yeux bruns! Oh et attend, ces becs que j’ADORE donner,k disons que je vous ferez fondre le coeur!

Je suis en super forme et j’ai beaucoup d’énergie.  Je cherche une personne ou famille active, car je ne suis pas pantouflard. J’adore me coller sur le sofa avec mon humain,…. mais un gars comme moi ça a besoin d’exercise régulier naturellement.

J’ai recu un peu d’entrainement et je connais quelques commandement (en français) ainsi que quelques gestes.  Je suis un toutou super intelligent.  Me connaître est tout simplement tomber en amour avec moi. Je marche bien avec un Halti, mais je vais continuer de travailler sur la marche en laisse au pied, juste parce que c’est la chose à faire.  Je veux tellement plair à ma nouvelle famille afin de ne plus jamais me retrouver abandonné attaché à un arbre.

Mon foyer idéal serait un avec de l’expérience et du temps à investir pour continuer mon éducation. Si vous voulez un partenaire de bicyclette, jogging, patins a roue alignées, je suis le gars pour vous. Et un gros plus, j’aime les autres chiens! Et des enfants serait super aussi, mais je suis un peu brute quand je m’excite, donc pas d’enfant qui commence à marcher!  Je pourrais facilement les renverser!


Mia was born August 18th 2011 a Boxer / Poodle Mix. Mia had sat in the pet shop since she was 8 weeks old. Her former owners had good attention when they bought her but didn’t realize how much responsibility getting a puppy would be so now she must find her forever home.

Like any puppy Mia will need some training and is not fully house broken but she getting better. She is very playful and loving, even likes to sit on your lap the best she can even though she’s bit of a big girl. Mia rarely barks and is amazing with kids, She would be best in a home that can handle her high energy and will put in the time needed.


They call me Yo – I’m a young mix, probably a Boxer / German Shepherd. I was found as a young teen, almost a year ago now, abandoned in a dog park with a note saying “I’m searching for a family”. I’m probably a little under 2  years old and I’m full of energy but a good boy. We have worked on my education (as I was totally uneducated when I arrived), and I have proven to be a fast learner.

I’m a little more relaxed as I mature but I do have a lot of energy. I get along with most dogs but can be selective.  Like to be the top dog, so a macho or dominant dog I don’t take to very much.  However, I love all humans. Maybe a little “brute” for kids but no aggression. Only love to give and receive.

Sophie is hoping my time is coming, as with so many dumped dogs in the City daily, rescues are so full that a plain looking dog like me often gets passed by, as is the proof since I basically went from teenager to adult in foster care.

But hey, I’m an adult now and I’m ready to move out.  Unfortunately I cannot move out on my own, so I’m looking for someone to share a home with (ideally yours as I am homeless officially) and we can spend the rest of our lives (at least mine) together being best buds. Yo – look at that face!

On m’apelle Yo – je suis un jeune mélange, probablement Boxer / Berger Allemand. J’ai été trouvé quand j’étais adolescent, il y maintenant presqu’un an, abandonné dans un parc à chien avec une note disant “je me cherche une famille”. J’ai probablement  un peu moins de 2 ans maintenant et je suis plein d’énergie, mais un bon garçon.  On a travaillé sur mon éducation (car j’étais très mal élevé en arrivant), et j’ai prouvé rapidement que j’aprennais vite.

Je suis un peu plus relaxe maintenant que je deviens plus mature mais j’ai encore beaucoup d’énergie. Je m’entend bien avec la plupart des chiens, mais je peux être sélectif. J’aime être le “top dog”, donc les chiens machos ou dominants je n’aime pas plus qu’il faut. Par contre, j’adore tous les humains. Peut-être un  peu “brute” pour des enfants, mais pas du tout d’agression. Seulement de l’amour à donner et à recevoir.

Sophie espère que mon jour s’en vient, car avec tant de chiens abandonnés dans la Ville tous les jours, les organismes sont pleins et un chien tout ordinaire comme moi se fait souvent ignorer, la preuve étant que je suis passé de chiot adolescent à chien adulte en foyers d’accueils.

Mais je suis un adulte maintenant et suis prêt a déménager. Malheureusement je ne peux déménager seul, donc je cherche quelqu’un pour partager un logement (préférablement le vôtre car officiellement je suis “sans-abri” et on pourrait passer le reste de notre vie (du moins la mienne) ensemble et être les meilleurs amis du monde.  Yo – r’garde moi c’te face!

Lola 3


My name is Lola 3, I was found as a stray and no one came looking for me. I am about 1 year old, maybe less, and probably a Boxer mix.

I am very sweet, but don’t have much manners yet, so a lot of learning to do. However, I’m a very sweet girl, a little excited around other pets, but not a mean girl at all. I just need someone who can structure me, give me some basic obedience, be patient and help me learn how to be a well adjusted, well socialized dog.

My eagerness to please is admirable and I’m very bright. If you think you could be that person/family, contact my people. They need an experienced foster or permanent home for me asap. * Because I appear to have some Pit Bull in me, it is important that I be placed in an area where there is no breed specific legislation in place. I don’t have the standard wide Pit Bull jaw and head BUT if I look like a Pit Bull, then I will be seen as a Pit Bull. Many very uneducated people out there fear this breed sadly. So, as a precaution, we’re saying I’m part Pit Bull but chances are I am not. Regardless….I’m a great girl either way. Hope you’re not the kind to discriminate against this highly unjustly persecuted breed. Dogs are dogs! We all need the same thing….your love and devotion.image


It’s been almost five months since I delivered my 7 little Rays, and have now gotten most of my shape back. I am now known as Sunny and have been adopted by my foster home who just couldn’t let me go.

The best thing is that my “grand parents” adopted my little Rayko, so I will see him grow up and forever remain his Mom. We don’t live in the same city, but we will see each other during the holidays, vacations, etc…

I have turned into a beautiful and happy girl, that butt of mine is constantly doing the wiggle. One thing I have learned to love is butter. I guess I felt too skinny for a long time so a little butter helped me put on the weight.


I’m enjoying a nap after running around with my new four legged sister, an 18 month old Lab mix, in the two acre backyard that is part of my new home in Ontario.

All of us 7 Rays are now a little over 4 months old and I’m one of the big boys already weighing 40lbs. It sure looks like I’m going to outgrow Sunshine, our beautiful Mom.

I’m hoping to reunite with my siblings and Mom (who by the way is still looking for her forever home) at Sophie’s future reunions.

Bella 4

Finally, after growing into a beautiful, charming and wonderful girl, I have found a home to call my own.

Not knowing what my breed really is, being young and very skinny when I arrived, it looked like I may grow into a Dane mix. But now that I am fully grown it’s obvious that my mix is probably with Mastiff and not Great Dane as I am short and stocky instead of tall and slanky.

Other than my new Mom and Dad I also have four wonderful young girls to share my life with who are just crazy about me. I also have a four legged sister of the feline kind to keep my on my toes.


Raylen… Poor little me! My sister Rayann left yesterday to go to her new home, as the family came to meet us decided to take her. It was a split vote, 2:2 but in the end the “girls” won and took home the girl. So now I’m all alone and find it hard, as unlike Raynelle who has a buddy with her, I only had Rayann. No other four-legged friends here for me to play with.

I hope to find my forever home soon as I’m getting to be a really big boy (close to 30lbs) and would love for my future family to watch me grow into a BIG beautiful boy. I’ve heard Sophie say that some of her previous puppies have taken up to one year before finding that forever home and I’m hoping to find mine before I weight 90lbs.


Rayven, Raymond and Rayann, my siblings, have been adopted. Am I next? I’m Raynelle, Raymond’s “twin” and have been looking for my forever home which I hoped to find shortly after he was adopted but I’m still in foster care. However, It is looking very good for me as Sophie has an application pending for me which she says is looking very good. So hopefully with this new week coming after Thanksgiving, I will be giving my thanks to this new family for the wonderful future they promise to give me.

I’m crossing all my little toes in hopes that if in fact approved they will fall head over heels when they see my adorable little face and amazing personality and in fact decide to take me home with them.


Hello there, my name is Rayko. I’m one of 7 puppies rescued with their mother after being abandoned in a storage unit!

My mum (Sunshine) and my foster mom are working with me to make me a happy, social and well behaved little boy. I get to go for lots of walks but my foster mom can barely make it down the street without people wanting to pet me! They tell me I’m very cute and are very impressed with my docile and friendly nature. I have a soft, healthy, beautiful tan coat with a dark muzzle. My toes and the tip of my tail are white.

I love napping and cuddling and chasing leaves when they blow in the wind.

I’m 2.5 months old now and ready to settle down. What I really want is to be a part of a family as loving as I am and a place to call home.

Rayann & Raylen

I’m Raylen, the biggest pup (already 20lbs) and my sister Rayann is the smallest one (only 14lbs), all our siblings are in the middle. Both of us are still looking for homes and both of us look a lot like Mom, Rayann even has that white line on her nose like Mom and our brother Rayven.

We have been together since we were born and left Mom about three weeks ago so we’re very well adjusted and socialized. We’re now ready to be split up and find some wonderful homes and hopefully see each other once a year at Sophie’s reunion.

It’s hard to say how big we’ll get but by the looks of things I expect to be about 90lbs and little sis should remain petite like Mom, probably around 60lbs.

If you want to give us a new life, a forever home, contact Sophie at (514) 523-5052 or info@sophiesdogadoption.com

Two down five to go. I’m Raymond, the second one of Sunshine’s 7 Rays to get officially adopted. I went to my new home tonight where my playmates are three cats a one, three and twenty year old cats. The two younger cats should enjoy playing with me, just hope the old one is not going to be grumpy in whack me to much.

Now I’m hoping my sister Raynelle will be the next one to be adopted as she is now left all by herself.

Raymond & Raynelle

Raymond & Raynelle back at Sophie’s until someone can take us in. We spent two days with someone who started teaching us stairs, going outside and we’re attempting walking on a leash.

We’re both growing, are becoming very playful but that also means we are becoming a handful. Ideally we would still need to be fostered together, unless two foster homes with adult dogs who can teach us the ropes could be good as well.

Raymond & Raynelle

Hello big world! We are Raymond and Raynelle, also referred to as the “twins” by Sophie. We are the only two of the seven Rays still looking for a temporary foster home together. We have been at Sophie’s since Saturday but someone is taking us for a few days to give her a break.

We are cute as a button, Raymond weighs around 12lbs and Raynelle about 9lbs and we are only eight weeks old.

We are hoping to find a foster home by Saturday who can keep us together two or three weeks.

Sunshine & The 7 Rays

Today was a rainy day, but me Sunshine and four of my little Rays came back to Montreal and brightened up Sophie’s day. I am looking beautiful, have gained weight and finally look healthy. My puppies are growing really well and have gotten quite big already.

They are about eight weeks old and the five of us came back to start the next phase, new foster homes.

Raylee is staying up in Ste-Adele to be fostered with the family dogs and possibly adopted.

Rayann and Raylen have arrived in Montreal a few days ago and are being fostered by our first foster home, who is thinking of adopting Rayann.

Rayven is being fostered in a home who adopted a wonderful Pitbull a few years back from Sophie’s Dog Adoption, and is looking to possibly adopt him as well.

Rayko and my self (Sunshine) are being fostered by someone with no pets, so I’m the one who will be socializing him and teaching him good dog behavior. The talk is that I could be “the one” for my foster mom so my goal is to be the best possible dog she will ever meet in hopes that she will adopt me and my search for a home will end there.

So here is the status update: Rayko, who is with me, is looking for a permanent home as well as Raylen who is being fostered with his sister (Rayann).

My little ones still in limbo are Raynelle and Raymond. Those two most probably take after dad or his side of the family, as they are the only two that are white and brindled. They they are the only two still in need of a foster home (together) as they are stuck at Sophie’s until then. It’s a good place, but not the right environment for my two little darlings as Ginger, Little Sue and Taco (her grumpy old Chihuahua) are never nice to puppies. Boy is quite pleased with their arrival, but I’m not sure that I really want him to be a father figure and teach them socialization and good dog behavior. So please come through for my little angles and offer them a roof over their heads so they don’t turn into a “Boy” or “Ginger”.


Well it looks like I’m not going to a new home after all. The lady who spent the afternoon with me on Saturday and was so excited of the possibility of me moving in my the end of this week, e-mailed Sophie the next day saying that after thinking about it, is no longer ready to adopt a dog.

So I’m in a new foster home, once again hoping that someone will want to give me that forever home. In case you already forgot, I am a really great dog who is good with kids, cats and other dogs.

Bella 4

My name is Bella 4 a Boxer mix and again I’ve changed foster homes due to vacation plans. I went to the dog contest event in hopes that a permanent family would see me and fall in love, unfortunately because of my size and looks people thought I was intimidating so I had to stay out of the park. That means nobody got to see how truly sweet, gentle, playful and affectionate I really am.

I’ve been around since May and feel I’m ready to become a member of someones family.

Sunshine and the 7 Rays

I’m Sunshine the young mom who was found with my 7 newborn puppies. My little Rays are almost seven weeks old and are now quite active, they are huge and have become quite a handful and are driving me and my foster mom crazy.

We are now looking for foster homes who can take my little ones in pairs, as it is too much for one person to handle all seven. This will help with their socialization until they are old enough to leave the nest for good.

I have four boys: Rayko, Raymond, Raylen, Rayven and three girls: Raylee, Raynelle, Rayann and they are all absolutely gorgeous.

You can see more pictures of the puppies taken from their foster homes on Facebook.
