Diesel 3

I’m from the Mastiff family and my name is Diesel 3. I’m born in December 2009 and a Cane Corso / Mastiff mix (probably English). I’m a big boy, not fully grown, a little excitable due to my young age but very gentle and friendly.

I’m presently learning some basics at school and should graduate within the next few weeks. I’ve shown that I can be mouthy but I was also brought up playing tug-of-war, which was the worst thing for a dog my size.

I’m definitely for someone experienced with my breed and will need some continued structure in order to be a fantastic dog.

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.


My turn has also come. I’m now being adopted on the same day as my other sister Raynelle. Even though my name is Raylen, my foster home had nicknamed me Albert, so I’m not sure what I’ll end up being called.

My new family has kids, so that’s gonna be a lot of fun for me as well as for them since we will be growing up together. I’m already 40lbs, not yet 4 months old, so I’m pretty sure I’m growing faster then them. So they better not bully me around, cause I’m the one with some bull mastiff in my genes. And by looking at me right now, it’s obvious I take more after Dad than my tiny Mom. Oh and I’m the biggest of the family and proud to be, everyone says what a gorgeous boy.


I’m finally in my new home. I’m not sure if I will keep the name Raynelle, but I’m happy to have my own loving family and regardless of what they call me, I will love it.

I’m living on the outskirts of Montreal, in a beautiful home in what I consider the countryside.  The scenery is beautiful, the trees are colorful, the air is clean and soon it will be all white. This will be my first snow and I’m so looking forward to playing in it with my new family.

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”.

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.

My name is Cooper, I am about 1 1/2 years old and still very much a teenager.

I am a big boy, which is why the guess I might have some Mastiff. But it’s really just a guess.

I love people, other dogs, cats, kids, but I am a little dominant and excitable so I need someone who will know how to handle me. An Alpha is what I need, or I will manipulate and take over as boss of the house! I had a rough start, having already had 2 homes (if you can call them that) where my life meant being tied outside to a doghouse, and the family/kids coming to play with me once in a while. So rules on how to play soft??? Don’t know. I like to bounce on you, chew on your arms, knock you down if I can, all in good fun!! But… that is not what people consider well-behaved, and for that I was put on death row at the shelter where I was brought.

I am good during the day, if crated, as I tend to try and find food wherever food may be. I am housetrained, calm in general, and very friendly.

Bruce 3

My name is Bruce 3, I am a wonderful and sweet 11 month old Boxer/Mastiff mix. I am a BIG boy, though, I already weigh 106 lbs.

I was adopted almost at birth by someone who really didn’t want a dog but thought they’d help the family who had the pups out by taking me. However, he never spent time with me, locked me in a cage, and really didn’t treat me very nice.

So I was taken back and put in boarding for the last 2 months. I am a really gentle dog, what you would call a ‘gentle giant’ and only want a family to love and be loved by.

I get along great with other dogs, have not been around cats yet so don’t know how I’ll react….. that’ll have to be seen!

Lucky 2

My name is Lucky 2, I am a 2 1/2 year old Boxer/Mastiff mix, weighing about 90 lbs. I am very sweet, fully housetrained, lovable and cuddly. However when I get excited, I can get jumpy and ‘mouthy’ and being so big, it annoys people.

So I am looking for a family who will know how to work with me on this issue so I can be absolutely perfect. Other than that, I have no faults.

I can stay alone, walk very well on a leash, get along with other dogs and cute as a button!
