Facts about Blaze

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Blaze has come a long way since coming into foster care, and is continuing to make improvements every day as he builds trust in people. This young Chocolate Labrador Retriever was born in December 2015, and has already had two homes. He lost the first home due to a separation, and we also feel it was probably not a great environment for an impressionable puppy. His second home only had him a few weeks; they couldn’t manage him and were also told that dogs were not allowed in their rented premises. Lack of socialization has left Blaze guarded toward strangers—he will sometimes bark at them loudly but don’t let that fool you, deep down he is a huge cuddle bear who loves to give kisses. Blaze tries to be dominant but really wants to be loved. He has never been truly loved and is a little afraid to open his heart completely, although he has shown his foster mom that he can! Blaze is currently being fostered in a home with two other dogs and a cat. He is a regular visitor at the dog park where he gets to socialize not only with other dogs, but with people as well. Thanks to the use of an Easy Walk harness, Blaze is now quite manageable on walks. He is clean in the house, crate trained, loves water (although it’s a little too chilly to go for a swim), and affectionate with his people. Blaze is healthy, weighs 67 pounds, and is in excellent physical shape. He’s good in the car and was extremely well behaved on his recent visit to the photographer’s home. If you have solid dog experience and are prepared to put in a little work, we are confident that Blaze will continue to improve and be a great dog. Please complete an adoption questionnaire at if you think you can offer Blaze what he needs to succeed.

About Kiko Dog Rescue and Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Kiko Dog Rescue and Adoptions is a small non-profit rescue group located west of Montreal near the Quebec/Ontario border and is named after a little black Pug rescued from a puppy mill. We are dedicated to helping dogs that have found themselves homeless, whether they are from a pound, puppy mill or a home surrender, by placing them in the loving forever homes they so deserve. All dogs that come into our rescue receive whatever veterinary care they require, including everything from dentistry to surgery to help correct an uncomfortable or painful medical condition. In many cases, the adoption fee is not enough to cover a dog's vet bill. If you would like to help us by making a donation towards our vet bill, please click on the Paypal button. Thank you!

Our dogs are not kept at a shelter. We rely on the generosity of foster families. If you are not ready for a permanent adoption and would like to consider fostering on a temporary basis, please contact us for more information. Food and veterinary care is provided by Kiko—all you need to provide is a warm loving haven.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a Kiko dog, please e-mail us. You will be asked to complete an adoption application so that we can get to know you better. A home visit is also mandatory, often with the dog that interests you. Our adoption fee is $400 and all our dogs are examined by a veterinarian, defleaed, dewormed*, vaccinated, sterilized and also tested for heartworm and lyme disease. *Please note that puppies adopted at a young age may require ongoing deworming for up to six months. Although this is a relatively inexpensive treatment, Kiko is unable to cover this and will only take care of deworming while the puppy is under the care of the rescue.
