2 Months old Spayed Female ADOPTION PENDING!

19 Months old Spayed Female "Social Butterfly" Mix!

Well hello there! I'm Isabella and I'm one happy rescue dog! I am looking for a home OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF LONDON. My foster mom says I "exude happiness". I'm not sure what that means but I know my tail is always wagging and I love life. I was very thin and sick when ARF rescued me. I'm feeling great now and have an abundance of energy at all times!

My top ten list of things that keep me happy include: humans, playing with my canine buddies, long walks, swimming, car rides, off leash hikes in safe areas, squeaky toys, rawhides, peanut butter filled kongs, and most of all, snuggling with my humans! I've been told I'm a very active and social butterfly and often my excitement gets the better of me. I LOVE treats and these help to reinforce those things called "manners". I'm working hard and I am a good student since I'm very food motivated. I've already earned an A+ when it comes to crate training, leash walking, recall, and expert couch cuddling.

I am fully crate trained and my crate is a great place to spend some time when my humans are gone. I am a busy gal and there are SO many things to explore. I sometimes forget what is acceptable to chew so enjoying a rawhide in my crate not only keeps me safe but my foster family's belongings too!

Canine buddies are fantastic but cats are definitely not my cup of tea. I am looking for a kitty free home without young children as I can be too exuberant and jumpy for small humans. I also have a hard time remembering that food and treats are not just for me so I'm looking for a dog savvy adopter who understands how to manage resource guarding safely and effectively.

I am spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and ready to find my forever family. I am extremely food motivated so training is lots of fun. If you are looking for a companion full of energy and affection, then I just might be your girl! Click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to my picture to apply.

2 Years old Neutered Male “Fan favourite” mix!

Hi every one, I’m Nimky and I am living in foster care with my 2 humans, 1 resident dog and multiple feline friends. I am a very social guy and love the company of everyone. Sometimes I try a bit too much to engage the kitties in play, and don’t understand that I am 80 lbs and they are small. For the same reason, I probably would also unknowingly be a little clumsy around tiny children, so kids that are big enough to be sturdy on their feet would be a better fit for me. I can’t help it though, I am just that friendly!

I am housetrained and very respectful of property. When left alone for short periods I get to lounge in the spare bedroom where I play contently with my Kong, stuffies, and rope toy. I sleep in the room at night without a peep. When outside playing, zoomies are my best sport and I am an explorer extraordinaire. I am hoping to find a forever home with a large fenced yard. I’ve tested out the private area of the dog park but sure look forward to meeting all the dogs in the larger park soon. I am learning how to walk on a leash now, and when I come inside I don’t even mind having my paws wiped!

I am medium energy and really LOVE regular play in the morning and at night. I also love to be petted, brushed, and given lots of belly and body rubs. I have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated with de-wormer. If you are an active person looking for the world’s best fur buddy just click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon to apply to meet me!

5 Years old Spayed Female "Red velvet" mix!

Rouge is a beautiful gal that will make you smile and steal your heart at first sight! Her soft and shiny ginger coat draws attention from passers-by while out on her daily walks. Being a bit shy though, you'll need to give her a little time to get acquainted with new doggy pals. Once comfortable with other pooches she is the life of the party, and enjoys her play time with them. She is living with 3 female resident dogs in her foster home, and socializing occupies her days. She also loves long car rides, especially when given the opportunity to let her ears whip in the wind

Rouge will thrive with an energetic family who loves to get outside, no matter the weather. This girl loves meeting new people of any age and her excitement shows as she approaches you with her swinging happy tail. There is no way someone can walk past her without her saying hello! She is also a great snuggler and appreciates affection.

Quick with kisses and a desire to please, Rouge is both house and crate trained. She is looking for a forever home that is kitty-fee and has a fenced in yard. Rouge has been vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and has received Revolution. If you can provide this loving companion with a second chance at a happy life, please click the ‘adopt-me’ icon to start your application.
