Howie's Story...
This dog is located at our Alabama location. Please read entire ad for transport information to Canada.


Howie came to us via his daddy after his medical issues became to great to allow him to care for Howie. He rescued Howie previously from a not so great situation and showed him how to love again. We have promised we will find him the absolute best forever home possible as this poor guy is so confused and not so happy being in rescue. He really enjoys going for walks and he loves to sniff around as much as you will let him. His previous daddy didn't have children or have him around any so we prefer no children under 15 and that they are dog savvy and very respectful. He has no issues with female dogs of like size or larger (55#) that are calm like he is. Howie is a senior pup at 10 years old and available for our senior for seniors program which you can read under our notes section via,

If a dog is listed, the dog is available. We respond to all emails within two hours between 8am and 8pm CST. If between 8pm and 8am we will respond the following morning. We do not hold any dog if an approved home comes for them and they are the perfect fit for them.

Please tell us about yourself, family, lifestyle, other pets, children when contacting us. Failing to introduce yourself will not get a response.

Our screening process must be completed, no exceptions:

1) We require a letter of reference from your veterinarian or their information for us to contact them for a reference. If providing the reference from them we are looking for: Current pets are altered, on HW prevention, flea prevention, received Rabies vaccination, and all medical they may have needed as advised by your vet has been taken care of in a timely manner. It must be on company letterhead as we will contact them to confirm.

2) A video tour of your yard and home to make sure suitable for the dog you are inquiring about. Please email to us at

3) A copy of your DL, Passport, Visa

Our screening process is not negotiable, it is set in place to protect our dogs, you the general public, and your current pets and children. If you mislead, leave out, or just lie about anything we will void the contract and we will, at your expense (per our contract) take our dog back. If not willing to provide all of the information to ensure the safety of the dog you are inquiring about then please do not waste our time contacting us. If it states the dog cannot be placed with other dogs, then no other dogs, your dog is not the exception just because your dog is friendly and loves everything. While we do not place aggressive dogs back in the general public, we give them sanctuary, not all dogs can peacefully live in a home with another dog. All dogs over six-months-old have been with us for a minimum of 30 days prior to being considered for adoption. All puppies have been with us a minimum of 14 days to insure free of contagious disease.

Our adoption fee's are nonnegotiable. The adoption fee does not come close to covering the care of the dog while with us however, the fee goes towards helping the next dog in need. If you cannot afford or are unwilling to pay the fee listed for a fully vetted, fully trained dog then you are not the home we are looking for, for one of our dogs.

All of our dogs come crate trained, leash trained, basic obedience trained, and are house broken. We back our dogs for life and will provide free training for them at our location if a behavior issue occurs, even 10 years from date of adoption. They are UTD on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, double microchipped. They are HW- and on prevention for HW's as well as flea & tick medication. In the event they are HW+ (the ad will state if so) we provide all medication to treat plus cover all medical related to until such time they receive two negative test results. HW treatment is noninvasive and simply giving oral medication cures the disease, it is nothing like it use to be.

Appearances can be deceiving. When in doubt about a breed or breeds of a dog, we do a DNA test. It will come with the dogs medical records at the time of adoption.

All of our dogs are on a raw diet, we do not use commercial dog food and we cannot recommend it. It is all bad for dogs, all of it, no matter what it cost it is killing dogs. Just Google the rendering process from which dog food is made. We strongly encourage our former dogs to remain on raw. It is very easy, cheaper than a high end grain free, and will keep your dog healthy and he/she will live years longer.

Due to Canadian Law we are unable to ship puppies under eight-months-old. You may however, fly to us in Birmingham AL and pick up and fly your own puppy home if you so wish.

Cost of transport: (This is in addition to the adoption fee)
Health Certificate $100
Vari Kennel $25-150 based on size of dog
Transport to airport $100
Cost of flight can be found here,

All travel cost plus adoption fee is due 24 hours prior to scheduled flight. We will make all arrangements from here to get your new family member with you. If you wish to come here we will help arrange anything needed for the trip home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Howie, a Toronto Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever for sale in Toronto, or seeking a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Toronto.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toronto breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto paves the way for another one to be saved.
