Dogs and Puppies Available for Adoption

All of our adoptable dogs and puppies are dewormed, up-to-date on all vaccines, heartworm tested, on flea/heartworm prevention, (heartworm prevention while in our care) spayed/neutered, and microchipped at time of adoption. Puppies under 4 months will not have their rabies vaccination. Adoption fees range from $300.00 to $475.00 depending on size and age of the dog or puppy.

The Adoption Process
Fill out an adoption application
After we review your application, we will contact you to schedule a home visit for you to meet the dog you are interested in and to see how the dog interacts with other members of your family.
We will then give you 24 hours to decide if everyone is still in agreement to adopt the dog.
If interested in proceeding with the adoption, you will start a three day foster to adopt. This will allow you see to see how the dog adapts to your home and other members in the household.
Food, bedding, crate and anything else the dog may need will be provided.
If after the three days you would like to adopt, we will then make arrangements to finalize the adoption.
At this time we are only adopting out to families in Windsor/Essex County.

Please note that for most our adoptable dogs, we do require a secured fenced in yard.


Cola is a 1 year old, female Sheltie mix who weighs 12 lbs.

From her foster family,

Cola is a sweet little princess. She makes a great sidekick and loves cuddling and sleeping in bed with you. She is great with kids, dogs and cats. She does very well in a crate. She needs to be watched outside, as she can fit under some fences. Cola would make a perfect addition to any loving home who would give her all the love and attention she deserves.

 Maggie is a 2 year old, 20 lbs. Puggle who loves people of all ages. From Maggie’s foster family, Maggie is an intelligent, energetic and loveable dog. She loves to be around people and especially loves to cuddle. She loves to play catch and can do this for quite some time. We're working on her leash manners as they do need improvement. She is a strong dog and tends to pull, more out of excitement to check everything out on her walks. She does have a fear of dogs larger than her and will bark at them until they are out of her sight. She's great with people of all ages and loves attention. She has never shown aggressiveness with food. She does like taking articles of clothing from family members, not to rip them up, but to have the scent of her people when no one is around. Although she enjoys playing with her terrier mix sibling, she does prefer most of the attention on her. She would be best suited for a home with no other dogs where she can benefit from all the attention. Did I mention she loves to cuddle?! Maggie is usually on the couch before you get a chance to sit down in anticipation of lying on your lap and going to sleep. She will bark when people come to the door but settles down quickly once she gets her scratches from the new guest. Maggie is a very sweet girl, extremely loveable an would make a great addition to an active family

Reba is a petite, 35 pound, 1 year old, Mountain Cur/Beagle Mix who is a kind, gentle girl. This combo can’t be beat; you get the humble sweetness of a Beagle and the loyal strong desire to please of a Mountain Cur.

From Reba’s foster family,

Reba is a sweet, calm dog, a little shy at first but quick to settle in. She likes to meet people and is good with other pets. She will play with other dogs and will vocalize when she has had enough. She is also good around cats as she pretty much ignores their existence. Reba walks well on a leash. She is very good at not climbing on the furniture and usually lies on dog bed or at your feet. At night she will sleep on a mat or on a dog bed. Reba does well around the house. She does not chew or scratch at anything and has not had any “accidents”. Sometimes she will insist on going for a walk before doing her business. She is still learning basic commands and is starting to respond to her name. She is very hesitant getting into vehicles but does settle down once under way. Overall a very good fit for someone looking for a docile companion.


Bella is a beautiful 4 year old 36 lbs Malinois who came to us from Lebanon last February 24th.She was born in a construction site. One contractor brought her mom to the site and left her there where she gave birth. The workers took the puppies and kept only Bella with the mom who a few weeks later disappeared. Bella was very sad and not a very happy dog and very shy, but very sweet. One of the workers hit Bella and injured her leg.(her leg is fine now) So we assume that Bella was badly treated but never become aggressive, on the contrary, that’s what most explains her shyness.

Bella has come a long way since being in her foster home she is shy at first but warms up quickly, she is a very sweet dog who loves attention and going for walks, but is not high energy the rest of the time, just enjoys being around company. Bella does tend to be weary of teenage boys.

Bella is an amazing dog and walking partner who is looking for her new best friend.


Billy is a 10 month old Boxer Mix who weighs 38lbs.
From his foster family,
Billy is such a good boy! This friendly pup gets along well with dogs and cats. He would like a playmate but also does very well on his own. He's a great cuddler but can also be independent and entertain himself with toys and chews. He is a quiet boy, not a barker, really only makes noise when he's playing. He is not toy or food possessive. He walks well on leash and even stays calm on busy trails full of people and dogs. He's up for anything, walking, hanging out in the backyard, car rides, or just relaxing on the couch watching a movie. He can have energy when needed but knows when to settle down and be calm. He's working on some basic obedience training and would love someone who would continue that with him. He is crate trained and house trained. He's a great dog and a real cutie who can't wait to find his forever family.
Billy does need to go to a home with a fenced in yard.


As smooth as butter and a sweet as candy. Meet Butter, a 1 year old male Chihuahua weighing in at 6.5 lbs. He is neutered, UTD on shots, crate trained and progressing nicely with his house training.Butter gets along with small dogs and cats. This little bundle of energy has a healthy appetite and loves to run and play. Still in that puppy stage, he can be shy at first and will bark at strangers until he has a few minutes to get to know them, then it is all cuddles and kisses. Butter loves to play with his foster brother who is a Rat Terrier. He would do best in home without larger dogs, and with a family who will let him snuggle under the blankets in bed at night, Because of his size he would do best in a home with children over the age of 10.

Will is a 10 month - 1 year old, 60 pound Lab Mix.
From his foster family,
Will is such a happy and friendly boy who loves everyone he meets. He is good with dogs big and small but would do best with another confident playful dog as he is a very active and playful pup. He is also quite happy just being with his people and his toys and would also do very well as the only dog. He is good with cats (even grumpy ones lol). He has been very good meeting childen on leash, he loves them but needs to sometimes be reminded to stay calm around them as he's still young himself. He is very tolerant with them, once he is shown how to behave around them he would be an amazing family dog. He has no problems sharing bones and toys with other dogs and will let you take anything from him. He loves being outside with his people or alone, he does not bark much and stays out of trouble. He is learning some house manners and is catching on remarkably quick. When invited tho he loves cuddling on the couch with you and will lay on your lap awaiting his massage. (watch that tongue tho, he's a kisser!) He walks very well with the help of a Gentle Leader head harness. He likes his walks but by far his favourite things are his toys, he loves to fetch them for you, and chewing, he will sit quietly on his bed chewing for hours in the evening while you relax. He is still young and can be excitable but has such a good heart and willingness to please. He'll make someone a wonderful pet.
Will needs to go to a home with a fenced in yard.


Barty is a beautiful 1-2 year old 45 Cattle Mix. He is a sweet playful, intelligent boy looking for love and attention, and in return, will give his loyalty and unwavering affection. This smart fella has it all, great looks, fantastic athleticism, and a bright mind to boot. Barty always needs to be part of the “action” and loves being around people and will greet you with hugs and kisses once you return home. He loves going for long walks, in his harness and says “hi” to ...everyone he meets. He also adapts easily to a new environment and responds well to rules.

Barty is currently perfecting his on-leash manners and is mastering how to walk in a heel position, so a handler who is fair and consistent will be best suited for him. Canine socialization is improving every day and while Barty still gets excited around other dogs – did we mention that this boy loves to play? – he is learning that calm greetings help him make friends more quickly!

 Barty knows sit, shake paw and lay down, and is eager to please (as long as there are treats involved!). He needs a secure in fenced yard, as he has loads of energy, and loves to run around and play fetch. Because he is a goofy bundle of energy, he might be a little too much for very small children.
Barty does chase cats and we recommend he does not go to a home with cats. 

After his walk and “playtime”, he is content with lying on the couch, cuddling or playing with his toys. He is fine to sleep outside of his crate and prefers to sleep on the bed or couch, but he is crate trained if need be. He is searching for his “forever” home, so if a lifetime companion bursting at the seams with love is what you are seeking, Barty is the dog for you.
