ADOPTABLE DOGS

Adoptable Kodiak

Adoptable Kodiak

Meet Adoptable Kodiak! Kodiak is a 5 year old, male, Black and Tan, 55-65lb, Rottweiler, mixed breed. Since day one, he has loved every human that he has crossed paths with, including children. Unfortunately, when on leash he does have issues with new dogs (especially males) that run up to him/approach him face on which can make him nervous and reactive. But when it comes to formal introductions and one on one meetings with other dog friends for walks, it usually takes little to no time for him to warm up to them in that way! He has many friends and love to play with the ones he knows. Kodi knows his basic tricks such as sit, lie down, wait…

Adoptable Kochai

Adoptable Kochai

Meet Adotpable Kochai! Kochai is a male, 2-3year old, 60lb, Black and Tan, Mixed breed. Kochai is a really sweet dog that has been with his foster Mom now for 6 weeks and come so far since being with her, and is looking for a forever to help take him the rest of the way. Here are some words form his foster Mom: It’s so nice to see how far Kochai has come after six weeks. He is becoming braver and more confident, and is super smart and cautiously affectionate. His leash reactivity is getting better, he doesn’t react to every dog he sees when out on a walk anymore, so that’s been a nice improvement, but does require a…

Adoptable Mike

Adoptable Mike

Adoptable Mike! Mike is a 2-3 year old, male, 45 lb, Central Asian, mixed breed. Mike is the sweetest baby boy who absolutely loves pets, snuggles, and affection of any sort. He walks so perfectly on leash and doesn’t pull. At the beginning of the shelter he was quite leash reactive to other dogs walking by, but he has actually come so far with this and is hardly responsive at all now to other dogs. Occasionally, he will bark and get excited, but this seems much more like excitement and wanting to say hi and play now. He has made many dog friends that he enjoys hanging out with and going to the beach with, and does well with them…

Adoptable Braveheart

Adoptable Braveheart

Meet Adoptable Braveheart! Braveheart is a 3-5 year old, male, brindle coat with white trim, 65lb, short and stocky, mixed breed. This sweet, sassy boy has stolen the hearts of everyone at the shelter, he is known as being a slowpoke land-hippo. He has so much love and character, and has been through a lot in his life, but continues to love so much. Braveheart is mostly motivated by the human touch, brushing, petting, snuggling, and most of all his toys. HE LOVES HIS TOYS and TREATS! We have put him on a little bit of a diet because he only once in a while likes going for walks longer than 10-15 minutes, he generally chooses to go outside and…

Adoptable Lassie

Adoptable Lassie

Meet Adoptable Lassie! Lassie is a 5 year old, female, 40lb, tri-colour, mixed breed Lassie is such a lovely dog that is so sweet, submissive, loves to roll over onto her back for tummy rubs, gets excited to see you, likes to play with you and her toys, but is pretty chill overall. She loves to go for nice walks and smell and the smells, and enjoy the sunshine. She can be funny at times where if she’s been walking for too long she may put the brakes on, then just lay down and now want to get up for a bit. We are working on it and she is getting better. If she does this, she will NOT let…

WORDS FROM OUR NEW OWNERS

Odessa (Odie)

Odessa (Odie)

When they ask us why do you rescue? What do you get out of it? Well, one very clear answer is this right here..Seeing this and then feeling that feeling that you changed two lives, not just one. From a life with no chances, to a life with endless possibilities. Simply Amazing! Adopted! Yaaay Odie! (Odessa) Happy Tail- Only a month ago, a shy but super affectionate young dog entered my world. It has already felt like we have been best friends for a lifetime! Quickly coming out of her shell, Odie, (formerly Jessie) showed her true potential for tireless west coast adventure. Short for “Odessa”, she has earned her namesake of the word odyssey; whether it is by my…

Spruce

Spruce

Adopted! Yaaay Spruce! Happy Tail- It has been almost 2 months since Spruce joined our family. From the moment we saw him we knew he’d be here to stay. He is a bright and spunky little character and a friend to everyone and anything he meets (except the insects he needs to chase). After saying goodbye to our last dog in February we weren’t sure of when we’d be ready for another, but how can you resist that face… and that beard! He’s just the best and collects new admirers everywhere we go. Thank you to Jesse and Raincoast for bringing him into our lives! Our family feels complete again.

Rena

Rena

Adopted! Yaayy Rena! (Formerly Serena) Happy Tail – We all found each other not long after our beloved dog Katie had passed away (also a beautiful girl we found through RainCoast). Our hearts were broken after losing Katie, and we knew that our home was incomplete without a K9 family member. We had already contacted Jesse about adopting another dog, so were actively monitoring the society’s social media channels for any openings in the conversation. It was on one of those mornings that I noticed Jesse’s plea for someone to step in to help him with an 18 month old, female, Weimaraner cross who needed to be urgently moved from her foster home on a Salt Spring Island. It was…

Ebah

Ebah

opted!! Yaayy Ebah! Happy Tail- Ebah has settled in tremendously considering the circumstances she came from in her previous life. She’s a funny girl with lots of personality, affection and love. She loves her new brother Hunter, he is teaching her to play and do normal dog activities. She is definitely the protector of the family. (She’s in the purple scarf, Hunter in the blue scarf). Her favourite things to do are sit on the couch and watch out the big window. Roll in the grass in the backyard and snuggle with Bill. The pic of the two in the truck looking out the window was in the DQ drivethru, Ebah had her first pup cone. She is living the…

Callie

Callie

Adopted! Yaay Callie! (Formerly Sally) Happy Tail – We didn’t realize our family was incomplete until we saw Callie’s (formally Sally) photo on Raincoasts Facebook page. It was love at first sight and we knew she needed to be a member of our family. Callie is settling in perfectly, as if she’s always been here. Our 2 dogs have accepted her into their pack. We are starting to see more and more of her personality each day and she can be quite the goofy dog. She’s a loving, kind, wonderful dog who we and our 2 boys love so much already. Thank you to the Haltner Family who found Callie and worked with Jesse at RainCoast to help make our…
