Story
*This dog is fostered in the GTA*Apply to adopt at rebeldogrescue.com*All adoptions with Rebel Dog Rescue have a 15 day probation period. Read about our adoption process on our website. Our lively 1-year-old American Bulldog mix has a heart full of joy and a bundle of energy to match! Derby is on the lookout for an active family that can match his zest for life and guide him through his journey of learning and exploration. With the basic command of 'sit' under his belt, Derby is eager to expand his knowledge but will need a loving family committed to furthering his obedience training. His enthusiasm knows no bounds, which means he's still mastering the art of leash manners and can be a bit jumpy during his walks.This spirited boy will flourish with lots of daily mental and physical stimulation to keep his intelligent mind engaged and his body active.If you're an active family ready to invest time in training, socializing and loving Derby, he could be the perfect addition to your home. He promises endless adventures, joyful companionship, and unconditional love in return.

Story
Diamond has been with us 2 years, and in those years only 1 application that was not a match has come in. This girl is a firecracker and super high energy, but she's got the sweetest side. She makes us laugh daily and we wouldn't change a thing about her! Diamond's adoption has been donated by an amazing sponsor. All we want is to find her a loving family and home. https://form.jotform.com/213266369147057 Or you can reach out to myself Jen@fightagainstbreedracism.com or Kari, Kari@fightagainstbreedracism.com for any questions you may have. Name: Diamond Breed: American Bulldog X Weight: 47.50 lbs Gender: Spayed/Female Age: 4 years old Energy Level: Medium to High Medical: UTD Good with dogs: Selective. Social outside but don't think indoors she'd do good in a home with another dog. Unless someone was experiencing and took the time it takes to work with her. She does love to play with her rescue friends. Good with cats: No has a high prey drive for all small animals Good with kids: No young children due to her energy. Good with strangers: yes gets overly excited Guarding issues: None that have been seen Behavioural issues: can have separation anxiety in new environments. And will be destructive if left alone too long. House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Leash skills: still a working progress, but has come a long way since she first came to us. Pulls a lot and will try to go after small animals if she sees them. Will need someone that can control/handle her. Walks way better with a martingale. Okay with manipulations: Yes, always willing to please. Notes: Diamond is a very sweet, affectionate girl who is eager to please. She has shown to be food motivated which is a bonus for training. Diamond gets very overstimulated and excited fast. She will jump up and grab at you or the leash but she listens if you are firm with her. Diamond is your perfect companion if your looking for a dog who can keep up with an active lifestyle!

Story
Hanky Panky is our shelter goof ball! Big, Strong, Clumbsy, Highly Active, Playful, Foodie ... these are all terms that fits perfectly for Hank! Hank arrived to our shelter as a stray and so his history is a little unclear. While he has been staying with us we find Hank to be an Adult that hasn`t outgrown his puppy behaviour quite yet! You can often find Hank in the park running around, playing fetch, tug-o-war or simply just seeking some affection. He loves to be by your side and if treats are involved - He`s in! Hank loves to make friends, but is shy at first. He does take a few moments and yummy treats to open him up and taking that step to becoming your best friend. Once he feels safe, you`ll see him bounce off the walls for you to show how much your friendship means to him! Training is a work in progress and will require ongoing work with basic training and manners, as well as socialization. Hank would do best in a home with experienced owners who are comfortable with training a strong boy and an understanding of behavioural cues. He would also do best as the only pet in the home at this time. If you`re ready for our goof Hank please contact Toronto Animal Services - West Shelter at 416-338-6271 to start the adoption process.

Story
Scooby Dooby Doo, Where are you??He`s right here at Toronto Animal Services West Region as a matter of fact!This charming, active and goofy young boy brings all the fun, thrills and excitement of his namesake cartoon character. So be prepared for unexpected adventures around every corner!Mr Scoob LOVES to be around his people; whether it`s going for a nice long walk, engaging in a wrestling match, playing a game of fetch or tug in the park, or having a snooze in front of the TV. He`s gonna be your new best friend!A typical Bully-breed dog through and through, Scoob thinks nothing of leaping up into your lap and smothering you with sloppy kisses. His enthusiasm and zest for life is evident in the way he eagerly drags us out to the park every time we walk, and how he jumps up to greet everyone he encounters.Family`s with young children may find him a bit too boisterous. Though he has not met a doggie playmate here at the shelter, we feel a nice careful introduction to other well-mannered dogs may result in an excellent play session. When it comes to cats - we have no idea how that may pan out.Scoob is a little on the lean side, and could benefit from putting on a couple pounds. Scoob was recently neutered and is still recovering. He is currently wearing a satellite dish (much to his displeasure) to speed up recovery time!For more information on Scoob`s quirks and charms, and to learn about our adoption process, please contact our West Region shelter at 416-338-PAWS (7297). We are open from 10:30AM to 6:30PM!

Story
Smooch (named Schmoopie in the shelter) was saved from being killed at BARC in Houston on April 16, 2024, where he'd been taken in as a stray. He was absolutely petrified in his little cell, not trusting anyone and not wanting anyone to touch him. For 5 days, he huddled in a ball in the corner of his little cell, shaking in fear, begging to be left alone. He was so scared that any time anyone tried to get near him, he growled until they moved away again. Dogs like that don't last long at the shelter, and it was only a few days before Smoochie was put on the list to be killed. Seeing the fear in his eyes, we decided to give this guy a chance, and boy are we ever glad we did! We got him out of danger at the last minute and whisked him off to a foster home to let him decompress in peace. After a few days of quiet crate time, he finally started to show his true loving nature. He is the MOST loving and affectionate doggy on the planet! All he wants is to be close to his person, to be snuggled and held. Sure, he loves treats, but we think he loves praise and attention even more. He's young and healthy and ready to fall in love.The one thing about Smoochie is that he really hates other dogs. We're convinced he's had trauma in his past, and we don't think this is something he should be expected to get over -- he's told us in no uncertain terms that he will only be happy living apart from other dogs. Of course this limits his opportunities to find the perfect home, but the good news is that he's fine with cats! Wooohoo!Sadly Smoochie's shares his foster home in Texas with several other dogs, so he spends more time in his crate than a dog should. He badly needs out. He needs his own family to adore and be adored by. He can travel to most corners of the US and many parts of Canada!

Story
HERE IN CANADA COME MEET HER My granny used to look at my pretty white coat and my soft brown eyes and tell me that I was the diamond in the coal mine. "Never worry, Raye," she'd say, "with a face that pretty there's always going to be a home for you!" I sure hope granny was right, cause boy oh boy! I could use a home about now. I'm looking forward to buckling down and excelling at doggy classes and hopefully making you so proud of me, that you'll never let me go! I need a home without children and without other dogs. Name: Rayse Weight: 60 lbs Age: 3 years Gender: Female Breed: American Bulldog mix Color: White/Brown Good With Adults: People selective Good With Kids: no Good With Other Dogs: Prefers to be the only dog Good With Cats: No, she has high prey drive Housebroken: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy Level: Medium Can be handled/touched: Yes Barker: some, when she's scared Escape Artist: Yes Food Aggressive: With other dogs Walks on Leash: Pulls Rides well in car: Yes Destructive: no Needs a home with a yard: Yes Needs a home with another dog-Prefers to be the only dog Can live in an apartment: No. Needs a fenced in yard to play in. Foster comments: She barks when she's scared, but as we've been working on her sense of security and confidence, it's happening less and less. For introductions to new adult humans, it's best if it's done outside when she isn't startled by their arrival. She warms up very quickly and is very friendly and playful. Training Update: This girl has come so far in her training and learning to trust people, she is doing basic trainingright now with one of our trainers and is doing great!! Rayse is part of our dog walking group and everyone that takes her on adventures absolutely adore her. When she is in a home she has a few fears but with a patient adopter that will show her leadership she will do very well , Rayse loves to be praised for good behavior and really wants to please . This gir has overcome some really big obstacles in the past few months and is now ready for her happy ending . She would excel in a quite home with lots of love and walks ( she loves the water ) the beach is her favorite. She is on special food which is only 60.00 for a 25lb bag and she is worth it . This girl really deserves her happy tail ending . Come meet her and lets take her for walk and you will see what all of us see!!!

These pups are in Hamilton, Ontario too!

Story
Lil Oscar is currently being fostered in Texas. 1.5 years young and the best boy! 43 pounds but still a little thin. 45-48 pounds would be ideal. We have him listed as a bulldog/ boxer mix. Lil Oscar is paralyzed on the left side of his face. This could have been caused by head trauma or stroke. He was found as a stray and picked up by ACS San Antonio. He was on the euthanasia list but the staff was so fond of him, they snuck him in the office and started begging rescues to take him. Because I have a huge heart for bully breeds, he is now an honorary chihuahua. Lil Oscar has no limitations, he just drools a lot on his left side. We add fresh pet or chicken to his dry food instead of giving him wet food and a large matt under his water and this helps him not be so messy. He still loves chewy bones and treats. He has so many great qualities, I am praying someone can see past the drool and love him anyway. ❤️ He is great with cats, kids, dogs. He walks perfect on leash, rarely barks, is potty trained, well socialized and he is a giant baby. He is full of love, so gentle, doesn’t jump up on you and he is great with little dogs too. He has a beautiful white coat, does not mark, squats to pee. He is a gentle soul and full of so much love to give. So please give him a chance. Approved adopters please send your hold requests to the email you were given. To get approved please visit our website www.texaschihuahuarescuecanada.org to fill in an application to adopt.
