EmeeRube

14 Months old Spayed Female "social butterfly" mix!

Emee is a beautiful girl who is living in foster care with 3 adults and 3 resident canine friends. Her brindle colouring stops everyone in their tracks when she is out for her daily walks. She loves to meet other dogs and humans and is particularly fond of children. Emee has lots of energy and is very athletic. Her favourite activities include hiking, a good run in the park and car rides!

EmeeRube is house trained and sleeps through the night. She enjoys the freedom of the house when her humans go out as she is quite respectful and does not need to be crated. She likes chewing on her big beef bone or a Nyla bone and squeaky toys are a must! Emee is clever and very treat-motivated so she should have a lot of success with ongoing training.

EmeeRube is a well-mannered affectionate dog who can adapt to any environment. She gives her best to her humans and is a ‘pack-up-and-go’ kind of dog. She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and received Revolution. If you would like to meet this happy girl, please click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon to apply.

Finnley

9 Months old Neutered Male 'friendly fox' mix!

Finn is a medium-sized dog who came into ARF’s care with a fractured leg. Through treatment by the vet and dedicated rehab exercises, Finnley has made a full recovery! He will likely have a slight wobble to his gait, but is already running like the wind! Finn lives with 2 humans, and 1 feline. He is a very clever boy, and was house trained almost immediately. He sleeps soundly in his crate and willingly goes in with a kong toy or chewie. Since he is so well behaved, he sleeps overnight on a dog bed with a few toys to keep him busy. Because Finn is so smart, he enjoys mental stimulation and prefers toys that make him do some work for a treat.

Since Finnley’s leg has healed, he has been excited to go on walks and loves to sniff and explore along the way. Finn has made friends with a few neighbours and their dogs, and will often wait for them to come play. Finn is extremely social and requires both human and animal interaction. He would do well with another dog or children in his forever home and loves to run unleashed in a large yard. Finn prefers to meet other dogs individually or in small groups, as he can sometimes feel overwhelmed. Humans are Finn’s favourite, as he loves cuddle time, belly rubs and undivided attention.

Finnley is truly a lovable boy. He is cleaver, energetic and affectionate all at the same time. He is friendly and melts the hearts of everyone he meets. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and received Revolution. If you would like to meet this sweet “foxy fella”, please click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside his photo to apply.

Gordie

2 Months old Neutered Male 'people lover' mix!

APPLICATIONS FOR GORDIE WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED FROM OUTSIDE THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO. Gordie is being transferred out of province and will be safe in foster care in Calgary, Alberta on September 7th. Applications should continue to be submitted to ARF Ontario.

Due to the breed restriction law in Ontario (C-132), which ARF and all other humane animal welfare organizations oppose, dogs who look a certain way are supposed to be killed due only to their appearance. Therefore, to keep puppies safe, we are only accepting applications from outside of Ontario for this pup.

Meet wee Gordie! This little guy had a very rough start to life but is not letting this get in his way. He's becoming a happy go lucky little guy with lots of positive experiences, love and patience. Gordie is super affectionate and absolutely adores his humans. Puppy kisses and helicopter tail wags when meeting people are proof enough.

Gordie lives in a busy foster home with multiple dogs and cats. He loves interacting with the resident dogs and meeting new four legged friends as well. Gordie has been exposed to many kids and he thinks they're pretty awesome. His favourite time of the day is outdoor play. It's pretty serious business when there are butterflies to chase, pinecones to collect, and squirrels to monitor. Gordie settles very well after a day of puppy adventures with his toys and his favourite things to chew.

Gordie is working hard at his housetraining and is doing well with crate training. Leash walks are something new and he is ready for this next adventure. Gordie will continue to benefit from a variety of experiences, positive interactions with other dogs and reward based training.

Gordie has been neutered, received his first set of vaccines and has been micro-chipped. He will be an awesome addition to a lucky family! To apply to adopt Gordie, click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to his picture.

Isabella

14 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, I'm always smiling and I absolutely love life. I was very thin and sick when ARF rescued me but now I'm feeling great. I'm a medium sized dog with a gorgeous girly figure now. Foster mom says I'm absolutely beautiful, inside and out!

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 kings, and most of all, snuggling with my humans! I'd say I'm a pretty well rounded gal.

I've been told I'm a very social butterfly. Foster mom gives me tasty liver treats when I remember to sit nicely and remember those things she calls "manners". Humans are just so amazing and sometimes I get a little too excited. Foster mom says I'm working hard and I'm a very good student. I've already earned an A+ when it comes to crate training, leash walking, recall, and expert couch cuddler.

I'm a bubbly girl who loves to go places and get lots of exercise and stimulation. I'm looking for an active family who will include me in their daily activities without too much alone time. I'm spayed, fully vaccinated, and micro-chipped as well. If you're looking for an energetic canine friend with loads of loving personality, all it takes is a click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to my picture to get things started. Looking forward to meeting you!

Lyla

12 Months old Spayed Female 'bold-n-beautiful' mix!

Lyla is a beautiful dog with a lot of love to give. This girl came into ARF’s care with a very sore toe, and through regular care from the vet and her attentive foster parents she is now in tip top shape! She loves to go for walks and has mastered her leash skills, only getting excited when she sees the odd rabbit on the way. She is an energetic girl who loves to chase balls and toss her toys around the yard. After a gradual introduction to the resident dogs in her foster home she has fit in well with the group and enjoys their company. Lyla is very curious about the resident cats, and doesn’t really understand why they are different from dogs, so she would likely do best in a forever home that does not have these small critters.

Lyla is trained to sleep in her cozy crate at night and when left alone for periods during the day. Housetraining is complete and she is clever to pick up new skills. She adores her humans and will lavish anyone with kisses. She is still very much a puppy, so is looking for a forever home that will be active with her, going on hikes or playing fetch in a park.

Lyla has been spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and microchipped. If you are on the hunt for an athletic, affectionate and super smart girl then look no further! Click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside Lyla’s photo to apply for adoption.

Magou

2 Years old Neutered Male 'white knight' mix!

Magou is a charmer and loves to be around his people. He is a very loyal dog, not really wishing to leave your side, especially when he can lean in for some scratches and pets. Magou came into ARF’s care after being a roaming dog, so he is a confident and independent guy. His “old soul” personality is a perfect blend of calm and caring. He likes to watch over you and when you return from being out he lets you know just how happy he is to see you! Because he is a past adventurer, he will need to live in a home that has a tall fenced yard so that his curiosity for the far and wide does not tempt him to go on an exploration without you.

Magou LOVES his crate and will go in and out of it freely just to relax or retreat for a nap. He is great on leash and likes car rides. Magou appreciates a slow introduction to doggy friends so he can warm up to them and enjoy a fun time. He has had a swim in a pond and loved it! He would like to find a forever family that could take him on long walks, continue his positive reinforcement training and be his very best friend!

Magou has been neutered, de-wormed, microchipped, vaccinated and received Revolution. If you are interested in meeting this loyal and appreciative fellow, then please click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside his photo to apply.

Rue

2 Months old Spayed Female 'splendid splasher' mix!

Hiya! I’m Rue and can’t wait to tell you all about me. I came into ARF’s care with my 3 siblings, Rizzo, Grizz and Idgie. I live in a nice foster home with one human, a big resident woof, and 2 kitties. Hanging out with my big doggy foster brother used to be a bit scary for me, but we are just the best of buddies now! I am full of beans and a very happy girl, always finding a toy to play with or wrestling with my sister. I’ve learned a few things too, like telling my foster mom when I need to go outside to do my “business”. Each day I get a little more practice. I sleep through the night and even like it in my crate.

It’s really fun going on walks, and I am getting used to the leash, but do like to lie down from time to time and watch the world go by. I am a friendly pup and love to meet everyone we pass, although big barking dogs still make me a tad nervous.

My very favourite thing to do on a hot day is splash in my puppy pool out in the yard. I also like a good romp, exploring, and then settling in the grass to chew on some sticks.

I have been spayed, de-wormed, microchipped and received my first set of vaccines. I’m hoping to meet a forever family that will take me for lots of adventures and exercise, and give me tons of love. If you want to say hello, just click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside my pretty picture to apply.

Tango

2 Months old Neutered Male 'full of personality' mix!

APPLICATIONS FOR TANGO WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED FROM OUTSIDE THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO. Tango is being transferred out of province and will be safe in foster care in Calgary, Alberta on September 7th. Applications should continue to be submitted to ARF Ontario.

Due to the breed restriction law in Ontario (C-132), which ARF and all other humane animal welfare organizations oppose, dogs who look a certain way are supposed to be killed due only to their appearance. Therefore, to keep puppies safe, we are only accepting applications from outside of Ontario for this pup.


Meet Mr. Tango! This wee guy dances his way into everyone's heart in seconds! Tango is full of personality and LOVES people of all ages. Full speed tail wags, body wiggles, and kisses galore never run short with this little guy!

Tango is an extremely happy and outgoing pup. He lives in a busy foster home with multiple dogs and cats and enjoys interacting with all of them. Humans are still number one on his list and he melts into his foster family's arms as soon as he's picked up. Tango loves to meet new children and will sit on the backyard deck watching the neighbourhood kids. His tail never stops wagging the entire time.

Tango is doing well with his house and crate training. He thoroughly enjoys the outdoors and is ready to take on any new adventure. Leash walking is new but he is up for the challenge. Tango is learning to settle after a busy puppy day with the help of some favourite toys and chewies. He's a quick learner especially when treats are involved.

Tango is neutered, has received his first vaccines and has been micro-chipped. He will be an awesome addition to a lucky forever family! To apply to meet Mr. Personality, click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to Tango's picture.

Zorra

2 Months old Spayed Female 'spunky ‘n special' mix!

Zorra is ready to meet the world! Introducing a sweet little pup who came into ARF’s care along with her siblings Darcie and Deja. Zorra is living in foster care with 2 adults, one 6 year old little human, a resident dog and one feline fur-ball. She loves to chase and play with her canine foster sister and is also happy to lay at anyone’s feet for a fast nap. Leash walking is coming along and Zorra enjoys all the sights and sounds of being outside. At night time she curls up in her crate located in the master bedroom so she can fall asleep keeping an eye on her people and the other animals of the house. She is happy to sleep until morning, and during the day she enjoys a chew toy in her crate when the humans go out for short periods.

Zorra is working hard on her house training and with a bit more practice she will be able to master it like a grown up girl. She is a clever pup and learns quickly, especially when there are some yummy treats offered. Her favourite activity is to follow everyone around, prancing as she goes. She has a happy personality and loves meeting new people!

Zorra has been spayed, de-wormed, microchipped and received her first set of vaccines. If you fancy saying hello in person to this delightful gal, then please click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside her photo to apply for adoption.
