Handsome Baron is an approximately 5 or 6 years old, neutered, 85 pound, German Shepherd boy. Baron will be coming into our care in on March 28 and going to a foster home in Victoria. He will be seen by our vet and then will be officially available for adoption. However we are accepting applications now! Baron was sprung from a shelter in California by our rescue partner as he was on the euthansia list for time spent - overcrowding gives these dogs "review dates" and Baron had already been extended past his and needed out ASAP. Our wonderful rescue partners in California got Baron out of the shelter and into an awesome foster home in California so that he could come to us on our next transport of March 28. We are grateful to these women who help us in California as the dogs do not have time to wait for transport - we could not do it without them and many dogs owe their lives to the tenacious volunteers that advocate for these dogs as the shelters do not! Foster mom in California tells us that he is an absolute doll! He is housetrained and does well in the home. He walks well on leash. Seems to know basic commands. He was friendly with her guests. As a typical GSD he would like to chase cats if he had the opportunity so no to a home with cats - not fair to your cats! Volunteers also noted that he is an easy going guy who enjoys the company of people and tested well with a female dog. He didn’t have any reaction to the male dog in the yard next to him, and walking out to the yard he seemed to match the reaction of the dogs we passed - he was calm when they were calm, he barked when they barked, he was indifferent when they were indifferent. We are looking for a forever home that has experience with the breed - no cats and no small dogs as he has not been tested enough around small animals. He seems to do well with other dogs, but we will be prioritizing applications without pets. He should be the star of the show! He will make an awesome loyal pet to the right family. Looking for a home with a large fenced in yard. If you have been looking for an adult GSD and would like to give Baron the forever home he deserves, please send us an application or ask us about him firstname.lastname@example.org

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! Cassidy is a friendly and sweet tripaw approximately 8 yr old Border Collie/Cattle dog mix. Cassidy is in foster care in Victoria. She was very shutdown when she came into care - her amputation was done due to neglect of an injury - she was confiscated by animal control in California and they had to amputate her leg in their care. Her life before coming in to care was not a good one that is for sure - we believe she may have come from a puppy mill situation. Her current foster mom has moved her bed around to get her used to the house and her new surroundings as she was only staying on her bed and would not engage. She is afraid of large dogs but really likes friendly confident small dogs, and once she trusts she wants to play with them. Cassidy now likes to go for neighbourhood walks, but only for a bit and then wants to return home this should improve if she continues to have positive experiences in the neighbourhood. She hates being in the car and is stressed in new places, but does ride quietly as she will shutdown to cope. Cassidy is a real couch potato in spite of her breed and loves to sleep on the bed with you. She becomes very bonded to her "people" that are kind and caring towards her. Her new adopter must be able to lift her 40-45lbs as she freezes and pancakes and she may need to be carried in certain situations if necessary. At this time, she must be lifted into the car. She needs to gain more confidence and her new people must be willing and able to work with her to help build optimism. We are here to help with that! If you think you can give Cassidy the best life she deserves, please apply on our website www.nadrs.org - we will have her posted there today.

"Cheese" is available for adoption! We are not sure why the California shelter staff named him Cheese, but it kind of stuck with us so we didn't change it as we often do when they transfer into our care! Cheese is a 5-7 yr old neutered JRT mix - best guess. He was picked up as a stray in California and no one came to claim the poor guy. He is a very affectionate fellow, but he can get quite frightened when he is unsure of his surroundings and not want to be approached. He is doing well in his foster home, likes dogs, likes walks, but can be afraid to be leashed at first. He hates crates. Cheese is adorable - playful and snuggly when he gets to know you and he trusts pretty quickly around good people.

Tasha came into our care from an animal confiscation case in California. She has not had a great life so far. She needs time, love and patience to trust people completely again. She is in foster care with us on Vancouver Island and we are looking for a forever home to help her blossom into the sweet dog she clearly is. She tolerates dogs in the foster home, but is wary of the larger ones. She will need a lot of relationship positive training to gain complete trust again. She has been walking around the foser home, but will retreat quickly to a hiding place when people come close. She is eating and drinking well. She has some cloudiness in one of her eyes that we will be having our vet look at soon when she goes for her wellness check - she also has a spay appointment in April. We are looking to place her into a foster-to-adopt home sooner than later so she blossoms with her new owner rather than her foster home only to be moved again. She is friendly, but very, very shy and nervous. If you have time to devote to Tasha, we want to hear from you! We can offer ongoing training games and relationship training advice to help you modify Tasha's behaviour to gain her trust and confidence. We have a certified Pro Dog trainer on our team! Unfortunately, we do not have great pictures of Tasha as she is hard to capture because she is hiding a lot, but we will add more when we get them.
