Facts about Stout

  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Seeking an awesome and supportive child-free, pet-free home for our six year old, 40 lbs. border collie/staffie cross, Stout. She is great with adults, and loves to play with other dogs in the trails, but she is not trustworthy around children or other dogs in confined spaces, and is not a dog-park dog. We would like to find someone who is willing and able to manage her in situations where she experiences anxiety-related aggression, and to love her despite her quirks. Stout has been a part of our family for the past 5 years. She is very well trained, as she has spent much of her life as a loving sidekick to a professional dog walker/certified dog trainer. She has lots of energy and loves to get outside for hikes and runs, but is also happy to sleep in, chill at home and relax or play with toys. She is very fit and healthy. As we have both recently gone back to work full-time and have a 11 month old baby in the house, we are no longer the best fit for her and can sadly no longer provide her the kind of lifestyle we know she deserves. We’d love to find a home who loves her as much as we do and who can give her the proper support she needs to thrive. Stout is a bit sensitive and would likely need some time to adjust to her new home. We would like to offer ongoing training support with a certified dog trainer free of charge throughout and after the adoption, and ideally, we would find an owner who would be open to letting us visit or take her out for a nice hike every once in a while. We would also be happy to pet-sit Stout on the occasional weekend or overnight. Contact Matthias at or call 778 238 9144 for more information

About Dogwood Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a network of volunteers who are passionate about animal welfare and have been quietly rehoming dogs for over 40 years. Our mission is to rehome homeless, unwanted or abused animals after ensuring that they are neutered/spayed and evaluated. We specialize in sporting dog breeds such as Pointers, Retrievers, Vizslas, Weimaraners and Dobermans, but will find a loving home for any breed of dog in need, particularly seniors.
We rely on public donations to continue our work, with our largest expense being veterinary services. Each dog that arrives with us receives a physical exam and spaying or neutering, if required. Many of the dogs we rescue, come to us malnourished or unhealthy because they have been neglected. We help dogs who are abandoned, relinquished, or available due to:

- Cruelty;
- Age or health;
- Neglect;
- Hardship;
- Divorce;
- Moving (where pets are not permitted or cannot make the journey);
- Lifestyle changes (starting a family);
- Death (or illness) of the owner;
- Imminent euthanasia in over-crowded shelters;
- Unwanted pets (e.g. puppies from unplanned litters) released into rural areas.
If you would like to contribute to animal welfare in your community we are always interested in hearing from you! We appreciate any volunteer help for fostering, advertising, fund-raising, transport, etc. If you cannot help out in person, but would still like to contribute to the welfare of these animals that find themselves in dire need, we welcome your assistance through the donation of funds or by sponsoring a particular dog's medical needs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not keep our rescued dogs in a shelter. Our dogs are placed in caring volunteer foster homes (with foster-to-adopt as an option).
