'Those darn dog rescues with all of their rules and questions - what gives?' A must read...»

Visit our Dogs that have been adopted page...»

Due to Bill 132 all "pit bull type" dogs born after November 2005 are required to go out of the Province of Ontario or be put to death. If you are located out of province, please contact us directly as we know of many puppies and young dogs that are needing homes desperately. Please help us save their lives.

Introducing our little cutie-pie Keeper. Keeper is approximately 1 1/2 years old and we believe he is a collie mix.

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

Our handsome boy Keeper is ready for adoption. Vet check was a ok !!! Keeper is an all around great dog. He is great with kids, dogs and loves cuddles. 

Click to enlarge...

When he first came to us it was clear that he had little to no family. He came in as a stray so it's possible he had been that way for a long time. He wasn't housetrained or knew how to climb stairs. 

Click to enlarge...

His foster family has worked hard with him and he has learned so much, he would make a great family dog. He loves attention and cuddles. Who wouldn't want to give it to him ? Look at that face ?

If you are interested in Keeper, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

Meet Saige, a beautiful 6 yr. old female Rottweiler. Saige is a very sweet girl who loves everyone she meets. She is good with most all dogs although we would prefer a home with a large, laid back male. She adores her foster brother Jack. Although we have not seen her with cats we are told she is good with cats as well. She has met a lot of children on her walks and she is very respectful of them. 

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

Saige has come a long way with her leash walks but she does get reactive when meeting dogs on leash during walks and having never gone for walks previously she can be reactive if vehicles or motorcycles pass by. 

Click to enlarge...

We are looking for a large breed experienced home that will continue with her leash training. Saige will need a home with a fenced in backyard where she can run and play and spend summer days laying in the sun. 

Saige is not destructive when left alone in the home. Saige is spayed and up to date on vaccines.

If you are looking for the “total package” and a wonderful family companion, look no further ... Saige could be just what you are looking for.

If you think you can give Saige a home, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

Meet Crixxus, a young and adorably cute Boxer mix. Crixxus is looking for an active home that can dedicate time to play and exercise him. Crixxus is 1 year old, neutered and up-to-date with vaccines.

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

We are looking for a forever home for Crixxus through no fault of his own. Crixxus is now in foster, please check back for more updates.

If you think you can give Crixxus plenty of exercise and lots of cuddles, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

Meet Trixie. She is approx. 1 to 2 years old, a collie mix. She is a bundle of energy and loves her playtime!

Click to enlarge...

Trixie loves people and dogs. She plays hard and excited but has LOTS of friends. Mostly boys. Her hackles are up the whole time she is playing but she's never been aggressive in any way! She walks REALLY well on leash and loves to go for walks in the bush. She has been working on her house training and is doing well. Her new home should be willing to crate her when they are away and show patience when letting her outside and make sure that she goes potty. She gets so happy and excited that she will sometimes forget to go! She's a very independent dog when it comes to playing outside, as long as she has a nice big fenced yard, she will play out there, for quite a few minutes alone and is happy to come inside when called.

If you think Trixie is the gal for you, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

Meet Nixon, the most strikingly handsome young Cane Corso mix you will ever set eyes on!

Nixon is a very loyal and fun-loving dog with his people once he gains your trust. The most important requirement Nixon needs is an experienced home with the type of dog that is not everybody’s best friend right from the get-go.

Nixon’s new home must gain his trust and once you get that you will have the world’s most affectionate and loving companion you could ever ask for, there is no doubt about that. 

Click to enlarge...

Nixon needs a home that understands he needs time and patience to become the best of friends without being pushed out of his comfort zone and to work at his pace … like we always say … slow and steady winds the race. The same applies for the most amazing companion you could have in Nixon.

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

Nixon is 3 years old and is a young playful dog that enjoys playing tug and with his toy balls. He also enjoys going for walks as well as ripping around in a decent sized fenced yard. While Nixon is an active boy and loves to play, he also enjoys being a lap dog getting lots of belly rubs, watching TV on the couch and one-on-one time with his favourite people. He will shower you with love and a hilarious display of full-on body wiggles when you get home or when you wake up in the morning. He wiggles his body and tail so vigorously with love that he literally beats his side like a drum with his own tail!

Nixon would be best suited for a very laidback and quiet home environment, preferably a quiet country or suburban life. Nixon also gets quite attached to his people, so a home where his people work from home or are able to be home more often. would be in his best interest and true happiness. 

Due to his size and strength, Nixon is looking for a home with no young children or cats. Nixon is respectful with other respectful dogs, yet we feel he would be in all his glory not having to share his people. We cannot stress enough how bonded, loving, and loyal he becomes with his people.

Nixon is fully housetrained and non-destructive in the home. He is also well on his way to being crate trained and will enter his crate when asked on command to “get in your bed”. He is also neutered, up-to-date with all vaccines and heartworm tested.

Only experienced homes will be considered for our handsome Nixon. So, if you feel Nixon is right for you and your lifestyle, please fill out an adoption application or contact us at

Introducing Ricky, our very handsome and sweet 9 yr. old male lab. Ricky came to us with severe skin issues but thanks to a loving foster home and a salmon based kibble diet he has improved immensely. 

Click to enlarge...

Ricky is a very loving boy who is good with dogs, cats and children. It doesn’t get any better than this when looking for a loving family companion.
Ricky presently resides with the resident male shepherd mix and they get along fabulously. Ricky is up to date on vaccines, neutered and will be microchipped prior to going to his forever home.


Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

Ricky is non-destructive and is really not a demanding dog. Being a senior, he would be happy just to be by your side for lots of love and cuddles. 

We would love to find a home with a nice fenced in backyard where Ricky can lay back and soak up the sunshine. Ricky will require a special food, chicken and poultry base do not agree with Ricky but he seems to be thriving on his salmon based, grain-free kibble.

If you think Ricky is the boy for you, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

URGENT - We are in urgent need of an experienced foster home for Tali. Tali is presently at the shelter where she is stressing. Tali is only a year old and the shelter is a pretty scary place.

Click to enlarge...

Because she is stressed she can get extremely excited when meeting new people and will jump and lunge. We are hoping that, in a home environment with a family who understands the larger breeds and is also familiar with fear based behaviours, she will settle down. She does not like to be put back in her kennel and who can blame her. However, because of her anxiety and fear of her surroundings we must find an experienced foster home willing to take her under their wing and help her to learn some manners with nothing but positive reinforcement training. 

Click to enlarge...

If you have the experience and a nice fenced in backyard, no children under the age of 16 and perhaps a calmer laid back male we would love to hear from you. 

Please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

This is Diesel and he needs our help. Diesel was found straying (several times) but this time his owners did not return for him. Diesel is a 1 1/2 year old male rottweiler boy.

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

He is absolutely stunning but as often happens, has had no time spent on him. He is a rambunctious, energetic boy who needs a foster/home that is willing to give him the exercise and training he truly needs to become a great ambassador.

Diesel has a few female friends at the shelter that he likes to play with. When he arrived at the shelter he was not neutered and didn’t do well with males but that could change with proper introductions to a calm, confident male...otherwise a female companion is preferable. He is too much energy for a small dog and we believe cats will also be a no-no. 

Diesel has shown no food or toy aggression. He is not had any issues meeting strangers and he is clean in his kennel.

Diesel is a very energetic boy who can be very bouncy and excited meeting people so no children under the age of 12.

If you have a nice fenced in yard and have experience with the rottweiler breed (or large breed) ... and think Diesel is the right fit for you, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

URGENT! EXPERIENCED Rottweiler foster home needed for 2 year old Baxter.

We are looking for an experienced home with NO children under the age of 16. Baxter has not had the best start in life and he can be fearful in a busy environment so a home in the country would be ideal to get to know Baxter better. We also need a home with a fenced in yard so this energetic boy can run and play safely. 

Click to enlarge...

Click to enlarge...Click to enlarge...

Baxter is a big boy and needs some work with leash training. He is in a kennel at the moment where they are taking great care of him. He has shown no food aggression. We believe Baxter would be okay with a laid back female of similar size. He has not met any cats so a home without cats as well.

If you think you can provide the foster home, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

Mega is an adorable 9 year old bulldog, that unfortunately needs to find a new forever home. The circumstances have changed in the family and sadly, Mega is not the best with small children. He is a typical bulldog ... he can be stubborn when the mood strikes him ... typical of the bulldog breed. 

Click to enlarge...

Mega is not the best passenger in a vehicle unless someone sits with him in the back seat – then he will settle. Mega is okay with cats...he will chase but gives up quickly. Mega is also good with most dogs, big or small. He may try to challenge a larger dog but when put in his place, he will give up. 

Click to enlarge...

We are looking for a foster or forever home that is familiar with the breed. No young children please. A nice fenced in yard is also preferable. 

If you think you can give this senior boy a foster or forever home, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at

Bear is a very handsome 5 year old neutered Rottweiler boy with a fair amount of energy to work off.  He does require some leash training as he uses his 105lbs of weight to pull you around. Bear has been getting familiar with walking with a muzzle as he sometimes is dog reactive. In a previous home he has spent some time with another large female dog that he got along with.  Bear has been around men, women and children however he seemed reactive to children under 15 years of age so we are looking for a home without children under the age of 15.  He does love to roll over and get his belly rubs before he goes out for a walks.  Bear needs an experienced foster/ adopter with patience to continue to work with his  food and toy guarding. Needless to say despite his issues Bear is as still a sweet boy.  

Click to enlarge...

We were able to visit Bear at the shelter and found him to be a very nice boy.  He was in the play area and loved to play with the balls in the yard.  Bear came right over to us for treats and pets though.  He is a very handsome rottie that just needs a chance to show how good he can be.  We feel with proper direction he will overcome is resource guarding and make an amazing companion for a lucky family.

If you are willing to continue with Bears’ training and provide a loving family environment for Bear, please fill out the on-line adoption/foster application on the left. If you have any questions, please email us at
