Dogs for Adoption

Last updated January 15th, 2018

You may notice that in most cases our dogs are not labelled as a particular breed but rather as “mixed breed”. This is because visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing a predominant breed or breed mix. We would prefer that you are able to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.

All of our animals are sterilized before adoption.

This amazing looking dog will melt your heart with her big blue eyes. She has striking markings and has the most amazing personality. Her whole world is about her people, she would love to just curl up on your lap and snuggle all day.

Pluto

Breed: Mixed Breed Sex: Male Age: 7 years

Sweet Pluto has the most beautiful eyes that melt the hearts of everyone he meets. He arrived at our shelter 6 months ago as a very fearful and shut down boy who clearly had not had much experience with people during his lifetime; the world was a pretty scary place for Pluto. Our staff and volunteers have been working hard to rehabilitate Pluto to get him ready to go to a new home. He still has a way to go but we feel that he is ready to begin his life with his family. His new home will need to have patience while he continues to learn about life. It will be important that they are able to recognize when things are too scary for him, to advocate for him, and to help him feel safe. Living with a fearful dog can be challenging, but it is also incredibly rewarding for those who have the patience and commitment. Pluto will need his potential adopters to meet with him multiple times before taking him home to begin to build a relationship and life long bond. In the end you too will have your heart stolen by our sweet Pluto and it will have been worth it!

To meet Pluto please contact our Adoption Department at 403-932-2072 ext. 113 to set up an appointment.

Dax

Breed: Mixed Breed Sex: Male Age: 8 Years

Dax is an awesome little senior dog who is in need of a loving and patient home where he can spend the rest of his days.  Dax is very smart, playful, and has a TON of personality. He is also a bit fearful of new people and does not take kindly to being handled rudely. However, as long as people take their time with him and are respectful, he warms up quickly, is super affectionate and a joy to be around. Dax will benefit from a home where his people can offer calm, consistent guidance and help him to be the wonderful companion that we know he can be.  He LOVES to learn and we have been working on some cues that will help him in his new home.  It will be important for Dax’ new family to continue to work on his cues once he goes home. He is a total love bug but one who could easily take advantage and become a bossy boy if not given gentle and consistent guidance. For an older gentleman he is surprisingly energetic and does enjoy getting out for his walks as well as spending quiet time at home with his people.  Dax would do best as the only dog in the home but may tolerate a well-mannered dog if careful introductions were made. The CAHS are committed to finding Dax the best home for him, and will work with his new family to ensure that a bond is formed before he goes home.

Dax is available for the Special Needs adoption fee of $125.

Meets with Dax are by appointment only. To book an appojntment, please call 403-932-2072 ext. 113

Oscar

Breed: Mixed Breed Sex: Male Age: 2 Years

Hello, I’m Oscar! I am a super good boy, (I know, they say that about everyone), but it’s really true! I am super smart and will work hard to please you- especially if you have a yummy treat in hand! I like to meet new people and especially love being close to my family and being with them as often as possible. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m a lap dog and would like to snuggle right up. When I’m not busy snuggling, I enjoy playing with my toys or swimming in the river. I’d do best in a home without cats, because they are far too fun to chase. I’d probably do well with younger children as long as they are gentle with me. Do you have the fun and active home I’ve been dreaming of? A great guy like me surely won’t last long so meet me today!

Diesel

Breed: Mixed Breed Sex: Male Age: 2 Years

He understands his basic commands and is always willing to please and learn more, he is a quick learner and needs mental stimulation to alleviate boredom. He is a pretty strong boy and would benefit from a family who understands his exercise requirements and play style. His ideal home should have older children and no cats. If you have knowledge of Diesel’s breed type and have a home that would suit him we would love for you to come and meet him!

Mavis

Breed: Mixed Breed Sex: Female Age: 1 Year

Mavis is a complicated yet totally sweet little gal.  She is about one year old and came to us with quite the troublesome past, but she has been in a rehabilitation program with the CAHS and is doing awesome and making lots of positive progress.  Mavis LOVES to play fetch and to cuddle after she has burnt off her energy, she walks nicely on leash, loves her toys and a warm lap! Mavis is smart and catches onto things quickly, which means she can pick up good habits and bad habits. Her experiences need to be well managed to maximize the good habits she is learning and minimize those less desirable behaviours.  She can be reactive to new people, but with continued work and in the right home we have learned that she can do well and be set up for success when meeting new people.  Mavis can be fearful and is looking for a home that will give her plenty of exercise, will keep her safe and recognize when she is feeling uncertain and provide her with love, patience, understanding and consistency. Mavis can be quite inappropriate with other dogs, and does best with small dogs and cats. It is critical for Mavis’s well-being and her continued rehabilitation work that she goes into the right environment and develops a bond with her new people before she goes home.  Mavis has some mild allergies that will require her new home to work on with their own veterinarian, and she is not quite 100% house trained, but is making good progress in that department. Only those committed to working on Mavis’s continued progress and able to understand and respect her body language should consider adopting this special girl.

Mavis is currently in foster care. To make an appointment to meet her, please call 403-932-2072 ext 113
