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. 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.

 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
Maggie can't go to a home with cats.


Lillie is a 6 year old 18lbs. Fox Terrier Mix.

From her foster family,

Lillie is the complete furry package of cuteness. She is a total sweetie. She loves belly rubs and will roll over for one anytime anywhere. She would rather curl up on the couch beside you than play fetch, which by the way she is pretty good at. Loves to people watch, and will growl just to let them know she's watching them and on guard. Her bark sounds ferocious but she wouldn't hurt anyone, unless it's a squirrel. Something takes over that cute little dog and she becomes the Great Squirrel Hunter although I don't know what she would do if she ever caught one. Totally house trained and hasn't had any accidents at all. Very very gentle with kids although probably not the greatest around really young ones, she feels nervous. She can sit, speak, and stop walking for treats. Lillie isn't the best on a leash she's in a hurry to get to the next stop or tree. . Over all Lillie is a really good pup, very smart and well mannered, anyone would be lucky to have her, she has lots of love to give!!

Lillie gets along with other dogs but it is best she not go home with cats.


Willie is a 6 year old 32lbs. Boston Terrier

From his foster mom,

Willie is a 6yr old Boston Terrier and true to the breed he is an absolute sweetheart. Willie is just looking for someone to love and a warm place to call home. Being a middle aged dog he is a laid back, easy going boy but still full of life and joy. He enjoys going for walks to explore but his favorite place to be is curled up on the couch next to his people. In exchange he offers up lots of kisses! He loves playing with toys (destroying them is probably more accurate lol). Willie gets along well with dogs of all sizes as well as being quite the gentleman with cats. At night he sleeps on the couch and when you're at work he can be given free reign of the house with no issues. He is house trained, he is not a fan of the cold or rain so sometimes needs to be coaxed outside because he'd much rather stay curled up on the couch. He really is such a good boy and a joy to live with and will make a wonderful addition to any family.

Available for Adoption Soon

All dogs are put in foster homes for a minimum of 10 days where we may assess their behaviour and as soon as they are available for adoption they will be posted,  due to the number of email and applications we do not accept an adoption application until the dog is available for adoption.
