The girl on fire… meet KATNISS! She volunteers as tribute of your heart… k we’ll stop now. KATNISS has a lot of character. She’s gentle and loving, silly and funny, and can be a little bit sassy too. She needs a decent amount of exercise/stimulation during the day or else she becomes bored. KATNISS does enjoy having her crate as a safe space, she’s fed her meals in there and will voluntarily go in there while her foster is busy around the house but because she lives with another dog who is not crated, she likes to follow their lead. Best buds, party pals 4eva. It took a bit of time for her to settle in with her canine foster sister but now they’re doing well so she could totally be a second dog in the home. KATNISS can be reactive to other dogs on leash but off leash is quite social, although she does tend to play rough sometimes, and she still gets jealous if you’re paying attention to another pooch. She will insert herself into the situation and steal all the attention. She loves hanging out at the dog park mostly to chew the sticks and pinecones. She’s medium energy and does require some playtime and a couple good walks each day. KATNISS may also bark at individuals she doesn’t know so proper introductions are key. With proper intros, she’s very good with people and licking them in no time. She hasn’t been tested with cats and we think would be better with older kids. If you’d like to meet KATNISS fill out an application to adopt now at saveourscruff.org!

He's incredibly affectionate, intelligent, mischievous, and often stubborn. He needs an owner that is going to take the lead role, or he will take control. He is particular with dogs and although is mostly dog friendly, will try to dominate in certain scenarios. He'd be better off making "best friends" versus being trusted in off-leash dog environments. He loves people and is an attention hog. But you can't get it twisted with PENGUIN, he needs to know YOU are in charge. If you'd like to apply to adopt PENGUIN, please put in a General Application, available on our ADOPTABLES tab on our website.

Meet LIZZIE. Recently flying from LA, LIZZIE is settling into Toronto vibes ready for a Pumpkin Spice Latte to match her coat. LIZZIE is a pretty mellow girl most of the time and is low maintaince when you’re home! When her eyes are on you, she’s super content laying in her dog bed relaxing, though her preference is to get in a snuggle whenever she can. You often won’t even notice her there. Every once in a while she gets super pumped about this new thing in her life called TOYS and will run like crazy to chase any that you throw. She loves to fetch here and there and her eyes light up from that quality time with you. She prefers an adopter with a flexible schedule. She loves being in the mix of things so someone that is home with her or can bring her out is awesome! She does get a wee bit nervous with new sights and sounds, especially without her safety net of “mom” and will need some leadership and guidance to build some new found confidence! Independence is really important for a dog's happiness, so building some stability she can follow to feel safer alone will be essential. She’s good for about 4-6 hrs currently. LIZZIE is getting better with all types of people but still requires a solid intro! It’s better to allow her to approach people. She doesn’t like too much attention so ignoring her so she can come to you is best! She is better with females currently. She’s also good with dogs after an intro! Smaller dogs are better and especially ones with more chill temperaments like her. Generally speaking, this girl doesn’t really like chaos and would prefer a more casual environment to suit her vibes. Life is short and she knows what she wants. Even crazy weather isn’t her thing. Messes her hair up, you know?! For this reason, she is not the best for a smaller child home. She is not cat tested but does chase squirrels. Fetch?! YUP. If this girl is for you then you know what to do! Apply to adopt today at www.saveourscruff.org

CHELSEA | F | 2 Y | Chihuahua mix | Medium energy | Friendly and affectionate | Smiles | Best with a flexible schedule | Nervous around other dogs | Not cat tested | Ok with older children
How cute is CHELSEA though?! Trust us, she knows it. She is friendly with people and very affectionate with her trusted humans. She loves playful cuddles in the morning, gets along with both guys and gals and legitimately smiles at you when you talk to her. ADORBS. All that said, let’s talk about what CHELSEA needs going forward. It’s super easy to want to snuggle her all the time and allow her to be a lap dog but she actually needs to start building some independence so that she doesn’t need to be right by your side at all times. CHELSEA would do best in a home with a flexible schedule where her people can work on leaving her alone in intervals and build up to longer times. She does not do well in the crate and will have accidents out of stress. When left alone she is in a secure area with pee pads but may still have the occasional accident as she gets used to your schedule. She doesn’t have tons of respect for boundaries at the moment and thinks that all the furniture in the house is definitely for her. Your bed? Ya, that’s hers too. CHELSEA would do really well with someone with breed experience who can start to instil some positive boundaries, otherwise, she basically climbs in the shower with you and you’re like what just happened here? She’s had mixed reactions to other dogs on a leash so will need to work on her socialization. She’s partial to smaller dogs. She doesn’t mind living in the city and loves to greet people on her walks. She's been happy saying hi to a few older kids as long as there’s a proper intro and they don’t crowd her too much. She can be particular and is best to be ignored until she comes to you. She hasn’t been tested with cats but hasn’t shown any prey drive. If you’d like to meet CHELSEA fill out an application to adopt at saveourscruff.org.

REUBEN | M | 4 Y | Egyptian Baladi | 50 lbs | Medium energy | Affectionate | Stubborn | Can be vocal | Working on crate training | Ok with dogs | Not cat tested | Was ok with one kid

Meet REUBEN! He’s pretty affectionate and playful but also has an independent streak and can be a little bit stubborn. REUBEN has been in Canada for a while so is very comfortable living in a home and being a pet. Sometimes though he does think that he runs the show and there’s always room to improve on some manners. He’ll be totally uninterested in play if you initiate but then runs around like a manic on his own terms. He would do best in a home with a backyard where he can compete in epic tug of war showdowns. He loves to people watch and will spend hours analyzing every person and pet that walks by the house, occasionally he likes to let them know he’s there too with a little bark. As soon as he moves into your hood we can guarantee that he’ll appoint himself as head of the neighbourhood watch. Great for security, not so great for condo living. Crating is very much a work in progress as REUBEN is terrified of the crate and will do whatever he can to get out. He’s housetrained and pretty good on leash but does have a bit of a prey drive so can get easily distracted. Because of his interest in teeny critters he probs shouldn’t live with cats or be off leash in open areas. However, since his time with his foster his recall is significantly improving and they are hopeful that he will be able to be off leash in the future! Reuben is working on understanding that hands are not in fact a part of the treat you’re giving him and rock taking it gently. He’s generally good at meeting new people and has met children with no problems. He loves playing with other dogs but will occasionally be a little too intense so needs to be monitored and reminded to chill with a firm no. We think REUBEN would really thrive in a home outside the city. If you’d like to meet him fill out an application to adopt at saveourscruff.org #rescue #dogrescue #reuben #egypt #egyptianbaladi #toronto #adopt #adoptme #adoptdontshop #saveourscruff

This guy is described by his trainers Complete K9 Care as being goofy, older kid-friendly and not only dog social but PRO-SOCIAL. They actually use MAX to help socialize dogs that come into their care for training/ fostering through SOS or private clients. MAX is looking for a home outside of the city. MAX is our dog of the month for September and although we are dedicated to finding him a furever home, we want you to as well. Please SHARE his picture and this post to help MAX get the promotion he needs to find the family of his dreams! It’s Max’s turn. View his full bio and apply to adopt at saveourscruff.org
And thank-you to our partners Complete K9 Care for being a stable force in this dogs life for the past two years. They have always advocated for him and given him the guidance, leadership and support he needs to be the wonderful dog he is. Check them out if you need support for your pooch!

Volunteering to rescue dogs is an absolutely uplifting experience and who better to share some of those moments with then those that know it best! Getting together as a team last night is SO great for many reasons. For starters, a lot of what we do at SOS involves constant EMAILS! When you already work all day.. this can be exhausting and after months and months feels a little impersonal! Getting together is a great way to build connections that help us grow better as a team in ways to understand where each other are coming from to help close communication gaps and also build personal, totally REAL connections! Email is efficient but getting together helps balance the work and play aspect of things. Humans are social beings! It just FEELS good. Also, it’s nice to just get together and connect with people who are similar to you in a way. Makes you feel supported, understood and safe. Sometimes it’s nice to have that common ground to be able to say “they get it” so you can start from a different place than with a stranger. Having that but then being able to use that to then have fun and not just talk about dogs.. it’s a de-stressor! Talking dogs can be very serious at times so it’s good to have a balance! And lastly (although we could talk about the positives furever) getting together to celebrate ourselves and one another is SOO key! Yes, it’s nice to take breaks from the stress of rescue but we also love it for a reason! Being able to talk dogs with people that aren’t annoyed with you for talking dogs... is kind of amazing. Chat about the learning moments, the hard but important times, the hilariousness of dogs, etc, etc. Gather others opinions, relate in the moment to things, be proud of ourselves and each other. What we dedicate all this time to.. is an important motion. So thank-you for coming last night! Thank-you to all of these people who made YOUR dogs a scruff success. To every late night, happy/stressful/new moment you’ve worked through with our dogs in mind. You all make SOS a place for dogs to build, grow, be happy and healthy through rescue! I highly recommend that YOU also thank them! 🐶

MEET JERRY! His foster describes him as affectionate, inquisitive, eager, energetic and playful. JERRY has a well-rounded personality as he’s very loving, fun, obedient and aims to please. He does well with someone that shows leadership and boundaries and rewards him with companionship and obedience. JERRY is medium energy with an overall energetic vibe. Want a sidekick? JERRY has your back! Even if it’s just taking out the trash, he’ll be smiling the entire time! JERRY loves exploring the outdoors (dog parks are his fav!), meeting new people/dogs (with proper intros of course) and honestly loves being the new kid ‘cause he gets ALL the attention. He gives it back though with a TON of snuggles! He is currently at home during the day, with a walk at lunch, and is crated. He is vocal at times as he is adjusting to his crate and being left alone so benefits from someone that can give him a schedule to follow and lots of challenging toys to keep him busy. JERRY is a quick learner and with continued training and rewards will do very well! JERRY loves other dogs, preferably ones that are a balance of chill and playful like him. He isn’t for the happy small dogs ‘cause he just doesn’t get that lifestyle - he just ignores them. If you don’t have another dog that’s cool but he does want some social time with neighbours and such! He loves the car so bringing him to doggy dates works for him! He’s pretty adjustable to new things although does need to go through the “WHAT IS THAT? WHAT IS A BBQ?” Kind of phase with almost everything he sees for the first time. He hasn’t been tested with cats and has been good with monitoring around kids. Basically JERRY wants to fit into your schedule with direction and in turn you will have a great companion. Think you’re the one for him?! Apply today at saveourscruff.org

After processing this first on our own, it's with heavy heart to have to post about the passing of our dear friend Tulio. A couple days after his second surgery hip surgery Tulio peacefully took his last breath with his wonderful fosters by his side. We still don't have a confirmed diagnosis of what happened, but the vets suspect that he threw a clot which can be a complication post op with any major surgery. Tulio touched the hearts of many people and will missed dearly by all of those who knew him. Rest in Peace Tulio and may he run free with all the other scruffs at the rainbow bridge. This picture represents him well. Always smiling, full of life. A great way to remember him 💕

MIRANDA | F | 10 M | 25 lbs | Whippet mix | Medium energy | Very sweet | Almost housetrained | Chewer | Loves elevators | GREAT WITH KIDS | Dog social | Not cat tested
Meet MIRANDA! She is currently being fostered in a home with two young kids and is doing absolutely amazing. She’s great at reading their energy and leaves the child who is less enthusiastic about dogs alone for the most part but is BEST FRIENDS with the child who loves dogs. They do everything together – they play together and keep each other busy and then fall asleep side by side. It’s actually the cutest thing we’ve ever seen so we’d love for MIRANDA to go to a home with kids. She’s medium energy and likes a few short walks per day along with lots of playtime with her small human. She’s a very smart pup and has mastered some commands like sit and paw but is still ironing out some of the other basics like housetraining and crate training. She would do best in a home with a consistent schedule that allows her a couple bathroom breaks during the day to avoid accidents. She’s a great apartment dog as she absolutely loves the elevator (how often do we say that about our dogs?!) but can be a little vocal in her crate, which she does not enjoy. She’s getting better and crating is actually beneficial for her as she is a chewer. Aside from crate time she’s quiet in the home. Anything she can get her paws on that shouldn’t be chewed will be chewed so your place needs to be like the Fort Knox of dog proofing. She can be a little apprehensive of new people and dogs but as long as she has a proper introduction she’s ok. She’s good on leash but will pull a bit as she gets more comfortable. She hasn’t been tested with cats and she like falling asleep to the soothing sounds of kids’ TV shows. If you’re looking for the SWEETEST family pet who could benefit from a bit of guidance apply to adopt MIRANDA at saveourscruff.org!

Named after STEVE from Sex and the City because he’s adorable, goofy, and a little bit awkward but like, he’s everyone’s favourite and you want him to see him get everything he’s ever dreamed of. GO STEVE! He’s still young and settling into his new life in the city. He’s figuring things out and trying to work up the confidence to ask Miranda to be with him forever. He’s a bit shy with new people but after a proper introduction, he is super sweet. He builds strong relationships with his trusted people and will often look to you for a confidence boost when he’s nervous. With continued exposure, he’s starting to realize that the world isn’t such a scary place. He’s definitely not a couch potato. He needs a couple of good walks per day, ideally with some time to run around cause he’s a Whippet and he’s fast as heck. STEVE loves playing with toys and can often be found lounging around the house entertaining himself by chewing on something. It will be important for his people to puppy-proof and keep him properly exercised as he may decide to chew your belongings instead of his toys if they’re left out or if he gets bored. With enough exercise, he’s pretty chill in the home. STEVE does not like being crated which is something he continues to work on. He’s very vocal if left in the crate for any amount of time. He’s also working on housetraining so a flexible schedule with people around a lot is best. He’s ok with other dogs but is hesitant at first. He has run around with a couple dogs once he got over the initial shyness so a friendly, playful role model may be a good fit for him. He’s spent some time with kids and was loving and playful with them after a proper intro. He hasn’t been tested with cats. If you think STEVE is your soulmate *swoon* and you’re ready to help him build his confidence, even more, fill out an application to adopt today at www.saveourscruff.org.

BERNARD | M | 2 Y | Hound mix | 40 lbs | Medium energy | Loves the outdoors | Playful | Needs help with leash skills | No cats – prey drive | Dog social | Good with older kids
Meet BERNARD! This hound mix is friendly, curious, outgoing and just loooves being outdoors. If you cottage/hike/camp/live outside he would be a great companion for you. He loves going for walks and is on the higher side of medium energy. He can get by with two walks a day just around the neighbourhood but we can tell he’s a bit bored. He enjoys lots of playtime in the home as well so having people and things to keep him busy would be key. He currently lives with older children and they are getting along so well. He hasn’t been tested with younger kids yet but given his outgoing playful personality we think he would do well hanging in a playroom playing video games, dolls, lego, whatever! (As long as you establish that legos are friends, not food.) He happily greets visitors at the door with lots of love. After playtime, BERNARD goes into full nap stalker mode and will follow people around just waiting to curl up with them for a good snooze. He’s been super friendly with other dogs so far and would likely do well as a second dog with a BFF to play with. He is sometimes reactive out of excitement but this should be worked on. In case you can’t tell, the more BFFs for BERNARD the better. He will need some help with his leash skills as he pulls a fair bit, and he has shown an interest in squirrels and rabbits so we’re not sure he can live with cats. If you’d like to meet BERNARD fill out an application to adopt at saveourscruff.org!

BELO is looking for a permanent home in a quiet neighbourhood or outside of the city! This guy is great in a social pack of dogs and is looking for a strong human to show him the ropes. He needs to be mentally and physically tired to help ease some of his anxiety, so activity is key. Long walks and play sessions are what this guy is after! He is crate trained and with enough exercise is chill all day – so 9-5ers are no problem. BELO just needs a chance to be his best self.

LIL BOW WOW | F | 4 Y | Chihuahua | LA | Low energy | Nervous of new things | Very cuddly/chill | Needs proper intros | Shy/Assertive with dogs | No cats | Older kids only
Bow wow wow yippee yo yippee yay, where my adopters at? LIL BOW WOW who prefers to go by Lil Bit when she’s dropping a fly new mixtape, is ready for the spotlight. She’s a Chihuahua and has some of the best and not so great characteristics of the breed. She loves to sleep and does so for anywhere from 12 – 18 hours a day, is super chill in the home and very affectionate with her people. She’s still nervous of new things (dogs, people and surroundings) and needs proper introductions. People should not immediately bend over her or try to pick her up. When she’s nervous she definitely exhibits some ‘big dog syndrome’ where she tries to immediately assert herself as a tough guy and then retreats to hiding behind your legs. She can be a flight risk so making sure she’s secure on walks and not having her around any open doors she can bolt out of is key. Because she does tend to assert herself in certain situations she will need a home with boundaries for her so that she can start to learn what is appropriate and what’s not. She needs to work on training including leash training, basic commands and socialization. She doesn’t bark in the home usually and is housetrained. LIL BOWWOW is not crazy about most dogs and can be reactive (vocal and lunging) when meeting other dogs both on and off leash. New introductions should be slow and controlled. She has made one dog friend in another Chihuahua. Chis for liiifeee. She hasn’t been tested with cats. She has met a couple kids while at the park and was pretty indifferent. She did allow them to pet her but living with very active children full-time may be a bit much for her. Older kids should be fine. If you’re a Chihuahua lover and are comfortable working with a super snuggly girl with a lil bit of sass then LIL BOW WOW would be a the perfect pooch for you! Apply to adopt at www.saveourscruff.org

BART | M | 8 M | Australian Shepherd mix | 45 lbs | Medium energy | Shy but curious | LOVES toys | Crate trained | Needs proper intros w/ people | Very dog social | Not cat tested | Not kid tested in Canada

Ay caramba – meet BART! He doesn’t exactly sport the spiky yellow hair or mischievous attitude of his cartoon namesake. Our BART is shy yet curious and super sweet. His confidence is a bit low after his big move but with patience and ongoing exposure to new things he will continue to thrive. He was fairly confident on his walk with his foster before a loud car horn went off and he was like what is this witchcraft?! He relies a lot on his canine foster brother who continues to show him the ropes. He would do best as a second dog with a pup who will give him his space when he needs it (he does not like sharing his crate but is never aggressive when pushing the dog out), lightly wrestle with him and share a massive collection of toys. BART loves toys and we cannot stress this enough. He likes to quietly chew a toy at most times during the day and if he doesn’t have access to them he will chew something else. He tends to hoard them throughout the day and build a mountain in his crate, which is his safe space. BART is still very nervous with new people and needs proper introductions where he’s allowed to make the first move. He will observe new people from his crate first before assessing if he’s comfortable enough to say hello. Anyone applying for him should understand that he’s not going to be all over you right away and it may take some time for him to warm up to you. Once he does he’s very affectionate and loves making a big cuddle pile on the floor with his people and his dog siblings and he is ALWAYS the little spoon. He also likes to give a steady rotation of kisses amongst all parties in the cuddle pile. He hasn’t been tested with cats and he was kid-friendly in Mexico, but may need time to adjust to kids here. If you’d like to meet him fill out an application to adopt at saveourscruff.org!

ROLO | M | 1 Y | Shepherd mix | Med to high energy | Playful | Vocal | Best as a second dog | Responds well to training + structure | No cats | Good with kids
Let’s meet ROLO! He’s sweet, energetic, playful and loving but he’s definitely still learning some things. He’s medium to high energy and needs two good walks/adventures per day and he loves playing with his foster sibling. He would do best with another playful, happy go lucky dog in the home as it would help him achieve his lifelong aspiration of joining the World Wrestling Federation… or whatever the equivalent might be for dog. Wrestling is his fave thing and he can be a little rambunctious at times but has never been aggressive with another dog. He likely wouldn’t do well with a super zen pup ‘cause he would drive them nuts trying to play. On that note he absolutely cannot live with cats because he legitimately thinks they’re toys. ROLO will need active adopters or else he will get bored in the home and start acting up a bit. He can be vocal when he hears unfamiliar noises but has been responding well to correction. He will need adopters who implement structure and rules going forward. He’s a super sweet boy but is still perfecting his manners. He’s super chill in the home when properly exercised and loves snuggling in bed or on the couch. He can sometimes be a little nervous meeting people on walks and will bark at them, which is something is adopters will need to continue working on. Although we do expect the barking to improve with consistency and training, his adopters should understand that some dogs (like people) are naturally chattier than others. He is likely not suited to an apartment or condo. As he’s especially leery of people in hats/sunglasses/hoodies – his people should continue to work on his socialization and exposure to new things. ROLO grew up with young children without any issues. If you’d like to meet this super affectionate, happy go lucky dude fill out an application to adopt today at www.saveourscruff.org

We’re pretty sure that even if you found every synonym for cute it the world it wouldn’t adequately describe our girl RILEY. She is super friendly and builds strong bonds with her people and LOVES to cuddle. She could use a bit of help building her independence as she has developed some separation anxiety and tends to be vocal when left alone. As a result she’s probably not the best dog for condo living. She’s ok sleeping in her crate but doesn’t do so well in there when she’s left alone. Other than that her favourite things to do at home are sleep and eat. She will occasionally bark at noises in the hallway because duh, she’s trying to sleep. RILEY is medium energy and does enjoy a couple good walks per day along with some playtime at the park. She is good with other dogs around her size and smaller but needs proper intros with bigger dogs and is a little pickier with them but she does enjoy the dog park. She absolutely loves to swim and play fetch with her sticks in the water so if you have a cottage or some kind of lakefront property she’s ready to be your best pal. RILEY can be a little nervous in some situations and will need her people to help build her confidence – she is very nervous with kids and will bark at them if they come close. She has been nervous on the subway, but has quickly overcome her fear. Also, we’re not going to lie, as cute and awesome as she is RILEY has some strange quirks… like being very selective about where she goes to the bathroom. She prefers to go off leash so a secure backyard would be ideal, otherwise it can take some time. Also, occasionally she rolls over on her back when meeting new people and pees a little straight up in the air when she gets excited. SUCH A LADY.
