Floki is a 11 month old lab/shep mix from Beirut.
Over the past few months, Floki has been working hard on his social skills and fears, he’s come such a long way! He is slowly learning that the world is not a scary place. He will need a family dedicated to his training, who will continue to teach him that he does not need to be afraid. He needs a leader!
If you are interested in adopting Floki, please fill out an adoption application found on our website www.blackdogrescue.ca
Guess who’s back back back again?
We want to extend a warm welcome to Snoops who back with the rescue. Snoops is approximately 8-9 months old, 55(ish) pound lab mix.
This handsome dog is a gentle giant who is looking for the right family to help him blossom into the wonderful dog we know he is. Snoops loves cuddling and going on adventures with his foster family.
Snoops is also a nervous guy and needs a family who is willing to work with him to show him the world is not a scary place (especially downtown city streets). When he gets overwhelmed or nervous, he doesn’t know how to channel it appropriately. He is showing lots of improvement under the strong guidance and direction of his foster family. He repays them for their patience with lots of love and snuggles.
Snoops needs a home without young children or cats. He could benefit from another confident dog to teach him the ropes.
Does Snoops seem like the right dog for you? Fill out our adoption application found on our website.
Tayo is 100% pure mutt and 100% love bug. He is fairly low energy inside the house and is happy napping all day until his long evening stroll with foster parents. He is great on and off leash. He has a very unique smile that looks like he is snarling at you, and once he warms up to you, he will greet you from work with his wonderful snarling smile!!
He can be wary when meeting new people, slow introductions are best for this shy guy. He would do well in a home with structure, rules and boundaries. He also does not do well with children, Tayo gets very stressed out in the presence of younger children, therefore, we are looking for a home without kids.
He has not been cat tested at this time.

Aurora is a 2.5 year-old, shepherd/collie/husky mix, looking for a family who is ready to go on lots of adventures and take on the world. She has medium-high energy and loves to play tug of war, fetch, run loose at dog-friendly trails and parks, wrestle with big puppies - you name it, Aurora is game. She is also quite the agility-dog, clearing 2-3 feet fences with a single bound, and will bolt the moment you let her off-leash. Aurora is a big-time runner, so an owner who runs, or the ability to be let off-leash, will help get the energy out.
Consistency and regular activity is key to keeping Aurora happy. She is a smart and mischievous puppers who will explore parts of the home when left unattended, and the more pent-up energy she has, the more likely she is to cause mischief. However, regular and a fair amount of activity
Because of her mix, she has higher maintenance needs. She will need to be brushed regularly as her fur can get matted easily. She is not a huge fan of being brushed, but previous fosters have had success with the brush glove, and once she is bonded to you, will tolerate a brushing. She enjoys being patted down with a towel and will give you little kisses of appreciation while you dry her paws.
Likes - peanut butter, meaty bones, fish, treats, denta stix, squeaky toys, rope for tug of war, running off-leash, belly rubs, and getting her hind legs / butt scratched (lots of fur back there!), giving very sweet, little kisses on your nose (it's the most adorable thing).
Dislikes - little dogs (they look too delicious to her and she can't help but turn on her hunter instincts. Better to keep separate), other animals on her turf or playing with her toys (very territorial). Aurora is also not a super cuddly dog, so while not a dislike necessarily, she likely won't be the kind of dog to cuddle up with you on the couch.

Devon comes from northern Quebec, is approximately 2 years old, and we think he is a yorkie x shih tzu mix. He is currently a little skinny at 13 lbs, so we're working on putting some weight on him. His favourite activity is to chase his ball around, but he hasn't mastered fetch yet! He loves to lay by your feet, and he can't get enough of butt scratches!
He very shy of new people especially men, so patience will be needed to win this guy over. He picks his favourite person, and he will stick to them like glue. He is quiet in the home, mostly potty trained, and working on basic commands.
We are looking for a home who will show him the world is not a scary place, and people are here to give treats and pets. Given his size, we believe he will do best in a home without small children. He is dog social, but has not been cat tested.
Note: he does shed a little and has triggered allergies to those with dog allergies.

Darla is a 8 month old goldendoodle who is 55(ish) pounds.
Since she is still a puppy, she would do well in a home with a strong leader who who is committed to continual puppy training to keep her out of mischief. She needs slow introductions when first meeting new dogs and people, but warms up quickly once she is comfortable with you. She does bark at sounds outside her home. She has had limited exposure to children and cats.
Darla's likes and loves: toys of any kind, peanut butter, playing fetch, playing with other pupper friends that's she gotten to know, digging, running, eating used tissues and napkins, treats, affection, baths, water, and a whole host of other things.
Dislikes: the concept of personal space.
We think Darla would do best in an active home as she is a medium-high energy dog. She could benefit from another confident dog to teach her the ropes.
If you think you're the right home for Darla, please fill out an application found on our website
