Black Dog Rescue only adopts out to residents of Ontario, Canada.
Oscar is one of our recent rescues from Mexico and he is ready to find his furever home! He is a medium-energy young male who loves to be pet, is great walking on his leash, and is quiet in his crate. He’s great with kids, cats and other dogs, though he can be a bit protective when it comes to his food.
He is a good balance between being chill and energetic, and would be well-suited to an active home.
When Oscar gets excited, he free-jumps in the air! His foster mom tells us that he is playful, affectionate, and independent. Members of his prospective family should be dog-savvy and comfortable with training as he has a couple of tendencies to jump up, steal food, and mark his territory. A home with a fence would be ideal.
If you think Oscar might be the dog for you, please fill out an application!
Big Spoon Looking for Little Spoon: Introducing Lacey!
Lacey is a one year old blond lab mix from Northern Quebec. She came to us through no fault of her own, but that hasn’t dampened her spirits. She is a typical lab; loving and full of energy. She will need an active home to keep up with her. She also needs an owner/family who will continue to work on her social skills, Lacey tends to get too excited when meeting new friends on leash and will need someone to show her how to remain calm and not scare her new friends away.
Lacey LOVES to cuddle, in fact, her foster tells us she is the perfect cuddle buddy and will nuzzle in to keep you warm and safe ALL NIGHT! At this time, we recommend a home without cats for Lacey.
If you are looking for a sweet and goofy dog to add to your life, Lacey is your girl. Fill out the application here.
Please welcome Buddy to our rescue! Buddy is a 3.5 year old Shepherd mix from Quebec. Buddy's story is a particularly sad one. He was part of a family, but his happy go lucky energy and playfulness were more than the family wanted to deal with. So he was crated, for long long hours every day. The family even had ACL surgery done on Buddy's leg, but decided that trying to keep an active dog calm during convalescence was not something they were interested in. So they took him to the vet to be euthanized...until his guardian angel stepped in and he made his way into our rescue program. Because he didn't have the chance to exercise his leg after surgery, he does favor his hind leg and will need to continue building muscle (daily walks/runs will suffice). He had built a TON of muscle and will continue to do so with regular walks. Despite Buddy's hard past, he loves all people and aims to please. He is very smart and has adapted well to life in foster care with his fur-siblings. Buddy will need a family committed to continue his training and socialization. He would do best in an active family without children under the age of 10. If Buddy sounds like a good fit, fill out our adoption application here. We will begin reviewing applications very shortly. Let's get this boy home!!
Say hello to Ernie! This beautiful blue-eyed husky mix is approximately 10 months old. He is full of beans and snuggles; just a as a pup his age should be! Ernie loves being outside, playing with other dogs and literally taking time to smell the roses (Fun fact: He loves flowers!) True to his husky heritage, he is a high-energy dog, so will need owners with an active lifestyle and a home with adequate space to suit his needs. It is also recommended that applicants be familiar with the needs of the breed.
When he is not on the go, Ernie is a real sweetheart who also loves a good snuggle with his humans. He is good with children, but has not yet been cat-tested. Ernie will require continued attention to his house-training. As a young dog, he still has a bit more learning to do in that department - but just look at that face and you’ll know that your efforts will be well worth it! If you think you might be the right fit for Ernie, please fill out an application.
Have you been holding out for the perfect lap-dog; a little buddy to share your quiet home cuddling on the couch & enjoying Netflix marathons? Then Ziva is your girl! This Morkie (Yorkie - Maltese cross) is a 1-year-old, 9-pound bundle of affection who sometimes chirps like a bird. Ziva is a medium-energy dog who is gets along well with other dogs, cats and older children (recommended age is 12+). Though she may be a little nervous in some situations, she is still quite curious and adventurous. She loves being outside and sniffing everything! Ziva’s prospective owner will have to help her become comfortable with the big wide world; to overcome a slight case of separation anxiety and to continue efforts with her house-training. This sweet girl is deserving of a good home and some patient training. In exchange for your love she will happily shower you in tiny dog kisses! If you think Ziva might be the dog for you, please fill out an application.
Kali Beans is on the lookout for a new best friend.
This 2-year-old wire-haired Chihuahua mix is in need of a home with another dog. Kali is a super cuddler and will always stick her tongue out while getting rubs. She is lady-like in everything she does, from her prancing walk, to the polite way that she accepts treats, and even her ease with cats, children and other dogs both big and small.
Kali will need to be let out to pee every two hours, but will always make sure to let you know when its time to go. She also takes four different medications to manage low stage kidney failure and thyroid issues.
If you have a home with another dog and are able to provide for Kali’s medical needs please fill out an adoption application here.
