Age: 3.5 years oldBreed: Mastiff MixEnergy: Low to medium Weight: 100 lbsSpay/Neuter: Yes

"Hello everyone, I am so excited to introduce myself. My name is Cedar and I am an energetic girl who loves to play!
I had a bit of a rough start to life as my previous life had some abuse on my previous pet parent and me. Which makes me nervous is negative situations but I’ve become really good at staying calm when my rescue mom is by my side because I know she will keep me safe. I've had a blast playing with my step brothers Jax and Kane. They can sure tire me out! Those dudes don't stop playing. While I could live with another brother my size, if I am being 100% honest I would absolutely love to be the only animal in the house so that I can take all the love and pets for myself. I do get jealous of other dogs and can be reactive.
I have been with my rescue mom for awhile now and as much as I am living a good life with them, I am ready to find my forever family. I am looking for a family who has breed experience and see's the value in consistent training and working their dog. While my leash skills are good, I was under socialized in my early years so when we see other dogs they can sometimes scare me so I bark at them, but don't worry I am a really quick learner and I get so much joy from it! I know some basic commands and would love to learn more!
Oh! It would be wonderful if my forever family liked to get out on adventures because I love taking in all the new smells and fresh air!"
Cedar is very smart so takes to training very well, which is great as this has continued to help her progress with building confidence. Because she can be timid or shy, she would do amazing in a home with a confident dog (preferably male) in the house to take their lead on things. Also she needs an experienced dog handler to lead her.She cannot be in a hectic home or a home with people who are not gentle with her. Due to her abuse in her pass, a home with hand raising and yelling will cause Cedar to be reactive. This is whe she gets in survival mode. She absolutely needs a calm home with limited guest.

HANS 

Available for adoption, foster or foster to adopt

Breed: Rottweiler Weight: approx 100lbsGender: MaleSpayed/Neutered: Yes Neutered Age: 3 years oldReason for Intake: Owner Surrender Medical (shots etc): NoneGood with dogs: NoGood with cats: NoGood with kids: NoGood with strangers: NoGuarding Issues: yes has resource guarding with toys, bones, food and beds.House Trained: YesCrate Trained: YesDestructive: NoLeash skills: Great! Okay with manipulations: YesKnown commands: Sit, stay, no, drop it, down, pawBehaviour Issues: Hans is a great dog once he knows and trust you. He used to have severe stranger danger. But with lots of work and teaching him how to socialize properly, he can now be around people. But they should not try and pet him until he knows them. Therefore he needs to meet someone several times before he is not untrusting and feels more comfortable. Other Observations: Once Hans trust you, he's a big goofy guy. Who loves to play, chase and snow is his favorite thing to role in and eat. Hans cannot go to a hectic household or with many people in the home. He would be best suited for a person who's very experienced with the breed and his behavior issues. Not for a novice owner. Hans will bond with his people and will be protective. He is great on a leash, loves being outside. He doesn't really bother with dogs outside his kennel, but is reactive to dogs in his kennel. His resource guarding is quite bad and he cannot have toys, bones or beds and blankets. We do give him raw bones at dinner time in his crate so by morning it's all gone and his aggression isn't there. Food aggression is bad as well. He gets fed in his crate, will sit and give paw before we feed him. Once the bowl is down, if anyone is near him, he will growl. Best to leave him eat in his crate.Being Rottweiler means he is strong, and smart. I talk to him often and he enjoys conversations while on walks on getting some cuddle time. Hans will be an amazing dog with the right people. He has tons if love to give and loves his people. For a dog who is 3, he still has tons of play energy to interact with his people. 
If you're looking for a dog who will be loyal and protective, but also have a soft side for you, Hans is the guy for you!

Or is corrected. Will need a strong leader, firm and understanding of his Breed.Medical issues: nonOther Observations:Winston is a sweet oversized pup when he's comfortable with you. As mentioned above, he is reactive while on a leash, but with the right training (we currently have one in place for him and will continue to be a support after adoption) he will continue to strive and be successful. He was isolated and not much socialization which as led to his reactivity. So he will need time. He will need someone patient.He loves to run, to play and absolutely loves his people. Winston is your typical extra large pup. Has no clue of his size just knows he wants to have fun.The only time he is aware of his size, when he reacts to things.Winston is bested suited for a home out in the country or a quiet more private area. City life or a busy street is not for this guy.With a loving family and home, Winston will grow into an amazing mature boy. Right now he's in puppy mode and wants to discover the world. But needs the right people to make those adventures safe and fun for him. Yes even reactive dogs can go on adventures!Winston will need constant grooming, his hair is super long and one day of not brushing him, he starts to get tangles. So it's important to know grooming is needed daily for this guy.Not for a novice owner, Winston is best suitable for experienced dog owners. Especially someone who's comfortable and familiar with reactivity.

This is something he will need to be constantly worked on. He simply gets a bit mouthy on hands when he gets excited playing. But he is learning to play a bit better.He loves stuffies and treats! If you're looking for a new best friend ready to go on your next adventure with, this is the guy for you! Due to him not being 100% confident with himself yet, he ll need an experienced bully owner who understands how to keep working with him on building his confidence up.

He's reactive to other dogs but correctable when caught in time.Okay with manipulations: yes for the most part. He doesn't like the be examined like his paws for example. Known commands: name, come, sit, stay, no, leave it, out, in your house, up, off, healBehaviour Issues: he comes from Mexico so he's not use to being in Canada. He doesn't like to be outside unless with a human or going for a walk. He did mark his territory in my house 3x in the beginning. He does go in the garage and try to get food off the counters. Food on now: Acana Wild CoastMedical issues: none Other Observations: Pozole is an active dog who is still learning the Canadian ways! He is adapting quickly and very well. He wears coats inside and outside the house as he's used to +30 degree weather. He doesn't like to stay outside too long and at times needs to be encouraged to pee and poo. He has never had an accident in my house (other than the 3 marking incidents).I feel like he had free range in Mexico as he knows how to get under fencing (he's on a long lead here) and goes in garbages. He has wear and tear marks on all limbs. He also needs his teeth brushed and nails trimmed regularly. He is happy to play with my dog and try to play with the cats. He loves my 15 year old daughter. He does jump up when excited (still working on that). Or he simply loves to cuddle beside me under a blanket. He follows me everywhere I go.

He also jumps when excited, we correct it everytime. He's starting to catch up that jumping is not acceptable. Medical issues: NoneOther Observations: Apollo will need a home with lots of land to roam, explore and play on. He's not the type of dog to live in an apartment or small home. With his energy level he needs tons of room and lots of outdoor play space. Apollo will need alot of daily exercise to tire him out and stimulation to keep him grounded. But the biggest thing, he needs a home where he ll have a job. He is a working breed and needs a structured home where he can utilize his skills and knowledge to keep him busy and focus.Apollo is a sweet dog who just wants to please and enjoy life. He may be small but he has tons of energy to use up. Need a hiking buddy, he's there! Need a swimming buddy, he's there! Need a camping buddy, he's got you! He's the dog you want when you have an active lifestyle and need a companion and best friend who can keep up. Apollo needs an experienced dog owner who also knows his breed and has knowledge of working dogs.

Available for adoption!



Name: Chichi aka CheechBreed: Great Pyrenees and husky mixGender: FemaleAge: Approx 15 weeksMedical (shots etc): Two sets of vaccinations and deworming plus 1st dose of Nexguard spectra done.Spay: Will be at our cost Good with dogs: love dogs!Good with cats: yesGood with kids: yesGood with strangers: yesGuarding Issues: noHouse Trained: working progressCrate Trained: yes, also doesn't have accidents in crate Known commands: Knows her name and bed (crate)
Hey all my name is Chichi, lets be real here folks, im a hand full with a funny mischievous side to me. But Im cute, smart and with your help I ll be one great dog growing up. Honestly, I'd like to think of myself as a strong independent gal. I'm a bit bossy and definitely a leader yet I'm fun and sweet with hoomans and dogs. I like to keep my foster family on their feet, so I'm always looking for a new adventure rather it's allowed or not hahaha. But I'm learning that being a puppy doesn't mean I can do what I want but my stubborn side will challenge the rules. I mean what's a girl to do when all she wants is to have fun right!? I'd be the oerfect dog for an active family who has lots of space for me as i think im going to grow to be a big girl! Plus running around is one of my favorite things to do. I know my rescue mom will be sad to see me go (she keeps telling me how sad she ll be)and I will be sad to leave but we know it's time for me and Mika to find our forever homes.  If you're looking for a pup who is fun, energetic and a smart girl, I'm the dog for you!The perfect family will be patient, have the time needed for a busy pup and be willing to continue working on her training and puppy manners. We'd prefer a spacious home with a large yard as she will grow to be a large dog.
