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





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 is spayed and her shots are up to date.



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

Leo is a bright, active young fellow who is looking for a quiet home with an experienced dog owner who can help him continue to overcome his insecurities and anxiety issues. Leo needs consistency, routine and a firm, confident owner so that he feels safe.
He is crate trained at night and when his foster family is out.  Due to his insecurity, he

MUST go to a home that is willing to continue crating him.  He gets along well with the foster family’s dogs, but has had issues with other dogs in the past.  He chases cats.
He loves to go on walks and has very good leash manners.  He loves to play fetch and

Kong Squeaky balls are his all-time favourite toy. While he doesn’t shed, due to
his breed mixture, he does require regular grooming.

Bruno is a 4 year old German Shepherd, possibly mix, he is
neutered and his shots are up to dateBruno is extremely friendly
with other dogs, no aggression with play or food. He is also great
with children over 10 years.

Bruno is never destructive in the house but he is mischievous
and will go through the garbage pails if they are left unattended.
He is great off leash at the dog park but pulls on leash when walked.
Loves his toys. Bruno will make some Shepherd family very happy.





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.





























Dogs listed below this line are not Bark Dogs. They are being
listed by their ownrts because they have special needs.
Please read carefully and call the owner if you are



Cody is a fawn Brazilian Fila. He is a great dog with a very nice personality. Our only problem with him is we have sibling rivalry. Cody is well behaved on walks and doesn't mind other dogs but at a distance. He likes to say hi to people but I am careful with children because of him being a big dog.

Cody's instinct is to guard the home or the vehicle. If people come to the home the greeting has to be done properly. You can't open the door and walk in. Experience with large dogs is a must.

He is extremely smart, very affectionate and loves lots of attention. He is highly food motivated and learns to do commands in seconds. He loves to search for things.

The best thing for him would be a retired couple or a couple with grown children who have lots of time to give him. Cody is used to a high standard of care and he likes the good life. Please call us if you think you could provide the same kind of home.
