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.


Walker is a 6 year old 10 lbs Yorkshire Terrier
Walker is a very sweet and loving little dog who gets along with other dogs and loves going for walks and being with you. He is not 100% housetrained but he is learning!
If you’re interested in a cuddle buddy who loves to give kisses Walker is the one!

 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.

Cain is a 7 year old 39 pound Terrier mix, who get's along with dogs and cats is now available for adoption. Cain has had a very rough life living outside hooked up to a chain till a very nice Lady rescued Cain took care of him for two months and had all his vetting done. Cain then came into our rescue.
From Cain's Foster Mom
Hi my name is Cain, don't let the tough name fool you I'm a big softy. I just became Canadian and I love it here, my foster mom says I'm a true Canadian... because I'm such a sweet and polite little boy. I lived outside since I can remember and while I would love a yard of my own to explore I've discovered my new favourite thing is curling up on the couch next to my people. I do a little security work on the side, I make sure to let my foster mom know when new people come to the house but once she invites them in my job is done and I am the perfect host. I like when we go on little adventures around the neighborhood, I'm not worried about where we go or how fast we get there I just enjoy being out with you. I've found these fantastic things called toys, they are just the best! Especially the ones that make noise, the louder the better! I'll tell you what I don't like tho, thunderstorms and fireworks, they really scare me but as long as I have someone with me telling me it's ok they're not so bad. I don't do much when my foster mom is at work, just nap on the couch and look out the window, I don't cause any trouble. I have all these great foster brothers and sisters, some are like me and some are smaller with whiskers and I love them all. But I'm not picky I could get use to getting all the attention too. So here's the bottom line, I have a deal for you. All I want is to be a member of your family and in return I will love you with all my heart for the rest of my life and try my very hardest to be a good boy. Well thanks for listening, I gotta get back to my foster family...I'm kind of a big deal here!"

Max was adopted last June and sadly because of health issues with a member of the family they need to return Max.
He is a 2 year old German Shepherd mix that get's along with Dogs, Cats and Children but it is best he not go to a home with a large dominant dog.
From his foster family,
Max is a gentle giant who is looking for his forever home. He is very quiet and well mannered. Listens well to basic commands and is learning to walk nicely on his leash. He is great with my kids and even tolerates his grumpy foster brother Bear who is always trying to show him who is boss. He doesn't bark except when overly excited about the prospect of meeting a new dog friend along his walks. He is crate trained and loves to go for walks, car rides or to just hang out near someone. He is a sweet boy who we will definitely miss having around after he finds his forever home.

Madison is a 8-9 year old, 9 lbs. Yorkshire Terrier mix who gets along with dogs and cats.

Madison’s “person” went into a nursing home and we were asked if we could take her into our rescue.

From Madison’s Foster Family;

Madison is a good little girl that gets along with other dogs. She shows signs of slight arthritis in her hip but it doesn’t slow her down.  She loves to run outside with my two other dogs and goes up and down the stairs with caution.

Madison is housetrained and goes outside when she need to and is also good on leash. She is a good eater (loves cucumbers) and will let you know she is hungry with a little bark.

She is using a set of stairs to get up and down from the couch or bed. She isn’t a cuddly dog but does like to be near people but doesn’t climb on your lap, she is reserved. Every once in a while she will want up but not too often, she loves to lay on blankets and sometimes her dog bed.

If you’re looking for a sweet little dog, Madison could be the one!

Shane is a 6-7 month old Lab/Cur/Pug Mix who weighs 30lbs.
Shane is an active pup who is house & crate trained; is learning to walk well on leash, he is a very smart little guy who is eager to learn.
Shane loves to play with toys and you and settles in after playtime.
He gets along with other dogs and loves to play with them so he would do best in a home with another active dog but would be fine as the only dog in the home.
Shane does need to go to a home with a secured fence...d in yard.
If you’re looking for a young active pup consider Shane
