How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?


Here are some of the dogs that are looking for a new home to belong to. If you'd like to inquire
about adopting one of them, please contact us - we'd be glad to tell you more about them and arrange for you to meet them...

General Information Pertaining to Dog Contracts...

Many people question the cost of adopting a dog, we charge $400.00 for a dog
As a registered charity we are not supposed to make money and we certainly don't.

NOTE: Many of our dogs are injured when they come in and need x-rays,
ultrasounds, expensive surgeries and/or medication which increases the cost significantly.
Adoption fees are
necessary for us to continue rescuing these wonderful dogs who otherwise
would end up dead in most cases.

If a dog has already been vet checked before we take it,
then it is not necessary to do the flea treatment or de worm it,
sometimes it is already spayed/neutered, this does not decrease
the cost of the dog, that money goes to the next dog who may need
surgery or expensive medical treatment,
either way your adoption fee remains the same and you can consider
it money well spent.

We have received notification from a few of the main hospitals that give us discounts;
they are increasing our discounted fees. We are struggling as it is to stay
within our budget. Registered charities are required to spend almost all the money
they raise. None of us find that a problem. Because of this new fee schedule we
need to increase our adoption fees. We hope everyone understands we are not
making money here we are just struggling to stay afloat another year.

Effective July 1, 2016 adoption fees for all dogs will be $450.00 fees include spay/neuter, shots and deworming
Puppies(fees include spay/neuter, deworming and first shot)

The China Dogs

Bark has rescued 10 dogs from the Dog Meat Festival
in Yulin in Northern China. We will be featuring them for the
next few weeks as they become ready to go to their Forever homes



Albert is a two year old Pomeranian mix, neutered, shots up to date He is such an easy dog to love. He has a great personality, loves to play with his stuffed toys and chase a ball. He listens well and learns quickly.  He gets really excited when the leash come out for his walk and behaves well when we walk him.

He is getting use to being brushed. He sheds a lot and his fur mats when it's not groomed regularly. He loves to cuddle after dinner and sleeps well all night.
Albert gets along well with the resident dog and would do well with a
friend dog or cat.





Meet Cosmo! Cosmo is an energetic 2 year old male, he is neutered and
his shots are up to date Cosmo adopted his foster family and adapted well
to his new environment. He loves to play with his toys, ball and chewing
 on a bone. Oh, he loves, loves treats.

If you are not in Cosmo's inner circle he is shy and will avoid you.
He is nervous walking outside and will need a family to be patient
with him as he continues to adjust. He is house trained and crate trained.
 He will sleep in his crate at night and during the day when his family
 is away. He needs to be by your side when your home so fully expect
him to follow you from room to room.

Cosmo will need another dog in the home and a patient family
while he adjusts. He is truly an amazing little guy and will bring
a lot of joy to anyone who adopts. In the evening he loves to lay on the
 couch, on his bed or in your lap while everyone is relaxing.
He is great with other dogs and cats, no children please.



Shelby is a sweet two year old dog with lots of energy. She lives
with other dogs and cats, she loves to play but does need
some supervision cause she sometimes doesn't know when
to stop or get anxious (she'll bark and pace around and jump
up at them if they are out of reach) when they don't want to play.
She is amazing with people and should be with another
energetic dog. Shelby's shots will be up to date and
she will be spayed before she is adopted.




Jimmy Choo


Little Jimmy Choo is 2 years old, and weighs about 18 pounds. He is housebroken, up-to-date with vaccinations, and neutered.

As a rescue from the dog meat trade in China, where he was treated very badly, Jimmy is understandably still wary of new people and new situations. Jimmy will need a little time to adjust to a new home. Once he is comfortable, you will see a sweet, friendly, playful little boy. He still has lots to learn by way of commands and manners, but he is very smart and learns quickly.

While large dogs can intimidate him, Jimmy lives very amicably with three similar sized resident dogs, and enjoys a good play with them or with toys.  He does have a bit of a mischievous side, sometimes snatching his foster moms socks or dragging around, and playing with, blankets from the other dogs’ beds.

Jimmy loves to go for walks and walks nicely on leash. He also loves to run, and frequently does laps around the back yard.

Jimmy will need a secure fenced yard, another doggie playmate, and a home environment that ensures he is not alone for long periods of time every day. Any children should be 12 or over. He is fine with cats.





Arnie is a two year old, neutered male and his shots are up to date. He weights 15 1\2 pounds and stands about 12 inches high at the shoulder. He is very energetic, playful and vocal. He will talk (bark) at me to get my attention or when he is waiting for his food. He likes to sit near the doorway where he can watch the street and let me know if anything is going on outside. He loves to run around with his toys. He has discovered squirrels and does not want to come back into the house in case they come through the yard.

Arnie is very shy of strangers and will bark at other dogs and people when out for his walk. He is nervous whenever he walks somewhere new so I tend to keep him on the same circuit each day. He will bark or shy away from anything that appears strange, even garbage cans. It took a couple of weeks to get him housetrained but he is doing very well now. He was going into his crate while his foster was away during the day and again at night.

Now that he is not having any accidents, he is allowed free rain of the house and he sleeps on a dog bed in the bedroom. Initially Arnie stayed within sight of his foster Mom but now he is relaxed enough to lay in another room. He likes to cuddle if you carefully pick him up. He seems to have a problem if he is not picked up in a certain way. In addition, his tail is very sensitive as it is crooked which would suggest that it may have been broken. It has not been possible to groom Arnie as he panics when the brush or electric sheers appear.

His hair is long enough that his collar gets lost in it.
Arnie will not come when called but he will come to have his leash attached. Often it is necessary to go out into the fenced yard to encourage Arnie to come inside. He plays a little game of coming toward you almost close enough and then running away. We are currently trying different methods for getting him to come inside. He is great with his foster sister and brother although they haven’t managed to play together.




Non China Dogs



Rocky is a 114 lb Mastiff/St Bernard mix he is
neutered and his shots are up to date.
 We pulled him from a shelter where he was not doing well. Frightened and desperately unhappy at losing everything he ever had he came to us with self inflicted wounds on his face ( he repeatedly smashed his head into the door of his kennel) trying to get out of a crate he didn’t need to be in.

He is loose in the Foster’s house and does not need to be crated as he has never been destructive.  He is protective of his pack and barks if he sees people walking dogs outside the house, but is otherwise quiet.  He very much enjoys car rides and is sociable when outdoors.

He walks well on leash and doesn’t pay attention to other dogs or people off his own property.  He is friendly with cats and dogs but is cautious when meeting new people or animals.

Rocky will do very well with another dog but can be an only dog as well.
This big boy needs a soft place to fall, he will be a loyal, loving companion for the right family.


Mr. PANDA, a 10 year young, neutered male Shih Tzu
Panda is an independent dog, loves people and loves his food.  Panda was a little overweight when he first came into foster as he’ll eat almost anything and likes to steal from the resident dogs. 
Panda would not come when he first arrived and would run away if you approached him.  This has been corrected with a bit of patience and trust, Panda now comes for a little affection and food if you have it.  He still doesn’t like to be picked up.
Panda enjoys his walks around the neighborhood and tends to want to lead but with a little touch behind his neck he’ll walk with the pack.  Panda has become very responsive to the positive, gentle training and is now ready for his forever home.
Panda shouldn’t go in a home with children under 12 years old and must be dog savvy.    Panda doesn’t like other dogs or humans too close to his face nor does he like to be crated.  Panda would love a quiet home, someone home most of the time and a patient, devoted person that will spoil him with love and attention (not food) for the rest of his life.
