"I can’t thank you enough for posting our dog, Dakota on your rescue site. We got a few responses and are happy to say that one of those people were the perfect fit for our dog. He was placed with them two days ago and is doing spectacular. He now lives in a home with his own private beach and lots of room to run and play, but most of all he is getting the undivided attention he deserves. We are soooooo happy for him.

Thank you again so much and you can now move Dakota to your “happy endings” site."    Katrina V.

A note from his previous home;

"I can't say enough good about the family that we gave him to.

They work at home so he will never be alone, they live by a beach, were previous Rottie owners.  If we sat down and designed a perfect family and home for him, this would have been it.

It was sad to see him go but we knew we would be keeping him from his perfect life if we didn't."

"Little Girl"  - posted May 26th, 2004, Updated July 15th, 2004

Little Girl has found her forever home! Congrats to the new, happy owners!

Little Girl is a 2 ½ year old spayed female Rottweiler looking for a permanent home. She was left at a North Vancouver shelter at the age of 11 months and as a result of neglect and abuse it has taken her some time to learn to trust people.  She is now in foster care and has adjusted well to living with a family of two adults, two teenagers, one other dog and three cats.  She is a sweet and loving companion who is happy just to be by your side, although due to her treatment early in life, can still be quite timid meeting new people. She may bark, growl and back away at first but if given time will soon show her willingness to be friends and  approach visitors with a wag of her tail and a quick lick on the hand. She is quiet and well behaved in the house, and loves to go for long walks at the local dog parks. 

"Buck"  - posted May 26, 2004, Updated June 7, 2004

Buck has a new home!! Congrats to the new, happy owners!

Buck is available! He is 2 yrs old neutered male looks 98% Rotti (backyard breeder) Spent 1.5 years on a rope at the reserve, lice infested. Went to a young family home and was jealous of the baby and returned after 3 months. Good dog with other dogs, good with people (bit mouthy), clean, quiet, non-destructive. Suggest children over 12 years, fully fenced yard but must be an indoor part of the family.

"Andi"  - posted April 16th, 2004, Updated June 7, 2004, Updated June 18, 2004

"Beya" (her new name) has a new home!! Congrats to the Down Family!

**Update:  The Down family sent a great new picture of Beya ~ she looks like she is fitting in just fine!!

Andi is a female Rottweiler who is probably about 2 or three years old. She is such a sweet dog and deserves the best possible home. We got her on her last day at the county "shelter" after they had picked her up on the outskirts of town. Andi looks like she has probably been used as a breeding dog for most of her life, kept in a dog run, and left alone quite a bit. She has since been spayed and is in great health. She loves to cuddle and is happiest when she is lying at your feet. Andi is actually quite small and only weighs in at around 60lbs or so. She is learning that it is okay to be alone and is already learning the basics- sit, lie down, stay etc. Andi gets along great with Children and is very patient with them. She also gets along well with other dogs, and tends to "mother" everyone. She has shown no interest in cats and is indifferent to small critters.  We are looking for a family home for Andi, where she can be part of the family, not outside looking in.

"Max"  - posted March 11th, 2004 - updated April 16th 

Max has a new home!! Congrats to the new, happy owners!

His name is Max.

He is approx. 2 1/2 years old, neutered.  Don't think he has papers, but he doesn't look like he's crossed with anything.  He is a very sociable dog, who loves attention.  He's well-mannered - knows Sit, Down, Stay & Come.  Apparently good with kids - according to the owner.  This is his 2nd home, and before he lived with 2 other dogs.  (I'm going to walk him with my happy Lab tomorrow to see how he does with unknown dogs - will let you know if there's a problem).  No idea what he thinks of cats.

"Harley"  - posted January 8th, 2004 - Updated May 26, 2004

Harley has gone to his new home!  Congratulations to the new owners!

He is really a good dog from a bad owner will excellent potential. The Victoria SPCA has had no problems with him at all even with inexperienced walkers. He needs a chance to be a normal dog and I hope this will not affect his chance for adoption.


"Iona"  - posted January 8th, 2004 - Updated May 27th, 2004

Iona has gone to her new home!  Congratulations to the new owners!

She was fostered and then returned because the woman's 3 out of 4 cats didn't like her.  She is a smaller build girl, who has been used for breeding like crazy.  When she first arrived at the pound she had very bad skin and extremely flat looking coat, super skinny, and has a scar on her muzzle from being muzzled.  She is now in great health, has been spayed and is the  sweetest girl.  She is very affectionate and very playful.  Very gentle with taking treats and is great on leash.  She is a young adult.

"Bobby"  - posted January 8th, 2004 - Updated May 27th, 2004

Bobby has gone to his new home!  Congratulations to the new owners!

Bobby was a grow-op dog.  He came in a bit chunky, so loving, wiggles like his bum is going to shake off.  He is just a big bear, with a small head.  His health seems great, and he is neutered.  He seems a bit dominant of other male dogs, but has shown no aggression when he has been out.  When he is really happy he grabs a hold of his leash and wants to play tug of war.  He knows his commands, and is very calm and sweet.  He's an adult and has been at the pound since September.


"Ruby"  - posted January 8th, 2004 - Updated May 27th, 2004

Ruby has gone to her new home!  Congratulations to the new owners!

She is a young, beautiful goofy girl who has anxiety issues.  She needs training, as she gets too excited. She seems to be in good health, but seems to be having major cabin fever.  She is around 1 - 2 years old, and would suit a family with an active lifestyle.

"Billy"  - posted December 6th, 2003, updated February 3rd, 2004

Billy has been adopted!  Thanks to everyone for your interest!

Billy has been dropped off at the pound and he is only 2 weeks old.  Not even old enough to be away from his mom he has to be bottle fed every 2 hours.  Lucky for him the people at the New West Pound care about the dogs they look after and called us to make sure he got the individual attention he needs.

Billy looks like a Rotweiller and he also looks like he will have some problems.  Since he is so young and small we are limited to what we can do for now and our main concern is getting him healthy.  He has an infection in his lungs, nose and eyes.  Billy also only has one eye.  The other is mostly closed but there does not seem to be an eye there to begin with.

Billy also seems to have a problem with his elbow.  We'll determine what as he gets older and healthy.  Right now we are putting all our efforts into caring for him.  When he is old enough he will need a special home.

Oct 11,03 - After Billy visited the vet yesterday the thoughts were he was born with an eye on his right side but due to untreated infection he doesn't have one now.  The right elbow seems be started from an infection that also went untreated.  When he's older we'll know more and what we can do for him.  After our initial thoughts of him being 3 weeks old the vet thinks he's actually only 2 weeks old. He's 1 lb 14 oz.  He would have likely been born on September 24th.

Nov 4th,03 - Billy is now 6 weeks old and is doing great.  He is big and healthy.  He eats solid food now and is on a raw diet and thriving.  He is very outgoing and enjoys playing with the other dogs.  Bowen our wolfdog took the role of mommy and takes great care of him.  His leg is doing great and he is not sick anymore.  He is very active and enjoys playing with toys.  He's got to be about 6 lbs now.

~ Here's Billy now!! ~


"Puppies" - posted November 21st, 2003 - Updated May 27th, 2004

All the puppies have found homes!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

These female pups are just 8 weeks old as of Nov. 20.  They were well-cared for and kept with their mother until then, and are now at an SPCA foster home.  It's quite an experience for them to be sharing their new home with a dozen adult dogs and 2 cats;  they are learning a lot about how to socialize with other animals. Their mom is primarily Rottweiler.  Spirit and Luna look very Rottweiler-ish, while Magic resembles a border collie.  Spirit and Luna are more outgoing than Magic, who is a little quieter and more reserved in new situations.  They are all great pups!


The pups will be vet checked, dewormed, defleaed and vaccinated before being adopted out.  Adopters must sign a BCSPCA adoption contract, agreeing to spay their pup when she is 6 months old.  The adoption fee is $93. The pups are located on the Queen Charlotte Islands, but can be flown directly to Vancouver at the adopter's expense.  (This can be fairly low if an adopter is willing to wait until an SPCA member is travelling and can take the pup as "baggage.")  











"Winston" - posted November 17th, 2003 - Updated December 17th

Winston has found his forever home!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

Winston is a 2 year old, neutered male Rottweiler.  He is protective and needs an informed, responsible owner.  His new home should not have children.

"Killian" - posted November 17th, 2003 - Updated December 17th

Killian has found his forever home!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

Killian is an intact, 9 month old male puppy.  He knows commands in English and in French.  He has not been around cats.  He is very friendly with a "puppy" demeanour.


"Jewel" - posted October 6th, 2003 - Updated Oct 15th

Jewel has found her forever home!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

Jewel is a 2 year old Rottie with the soul of a Golden Retriever.  She has been looking for a home for about 3 months now but folks seem intimidated by her breed.  She is the softest, sweetest dog around.  She will be a loyal, loving family companion.  She is proven with kids and like to carry a 'stuffie' or toy around ALL the time.

She is housebroken, walks well on a leash and is very good with other dogs. A nice easy addition to your home.  


"Laika" - posted August 12, 2003

Laika has found her forever home!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

Her name is Laika, she's 3.5 yrs old and unregistered.  She's a real sweet, nice looking dog with basic obedience. Her owner has cats as well and she says Laika is great with them. She is great with kids too and she's house trained.

"Cowboy" - posted June 6, 2003

Cowboy has found his forever home!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

"Kisa" - posted May 27, 2003, updated May 26, 2004

Kisa has found her new home!  Congratulations to her new owners!

Kisa is a 4 year old female Rottweiler in need of a home as soon as possible. She is up to date on her shots including kennel cough up to July. She is in need of attention and needs to lose a bit of weight. She is not spayed yet but we will pay for the spaying when she is ready for it. She loves to go for walks and behaves very well on a leash. We have had her from a puppy and have trained her to sit, shake a paw, heal, and to shut a door. She is very protective of the yard. She should be in a home with no other dogs, cats or small children. Kisa would be a very good companion and watch dog for the right owners.


Hoodie has found his forever home!  Thanks for all the enquiries!

A sweet 180 lb couch potato is how he is described.  He loves cats and kittens, and loves to sleep on the couch (on is back) and does not bark when someone comes into the yard (he would not be a good watch dog, but would be a WONDERFUL companion for someone.

"No-name...for now"

"Thump" has a name, and a great home!

I was able to find this lovely boy a home even before I had a chance to put him up on here.  He is a sweet dog, who will do well in his new home on the acreage, the goats, chickens, ducks, and the Cattle dog, Squeek.


"Xena"  - Updated May 26, 2004

Xena has found her forever home!  

Xena is approx. 5 years old and currently being fostered in the Lower Mainland of B.C.  She has some minor health problems, but which are controlled by medication.  


"Gentle Ben" (posted Aug 15th)

Ben has found his forever home!  Thanks to all for the INCREDIBLE amount of responses.

Ben is a 1 1/2 year old male Rottweiler with a tail. He is currently being fostered in the Lower Mainland of B.C.  Ben has come from a life of abuse.  He was brought into the Vet having been overdosed with heroin.  His back was also broken approx. 6 months ago, but he has recovered beautifully, and is a little stiff right now, but with regular exercise, he is getting better each and every day. He will have arthritis when he is older, and is currently on a health regime, which includes MSM, Glucosamine, and other vitamins.  He is up-to-date on his vaccines and his neutering has been paid for, but still to be done.  With all that has happened to Ben, you would think he would look at the world through unforgiving eyes, but he does not.  Ben loves everyone and has a beautiful temperament.

By Jim Willis 2001

  When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child, and despite a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I was "bad,"
you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?" - but then you'd relent, and roll me over for a bellyrub.

  My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together. I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed and listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs," you said), and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

  Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently, comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you about bad decisions, and romped with glee at your home comings, and when you fell in love. She, now your wife, is not a "dog person" -still I welcomed her into our home, tried to show her affection, and obeyed her.

  I was happy because you were happy. Then the human babies came along and I shared your excitement. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them, too. Only she and you worried that I might hurt them, and I spent most of my time banished to another room, or to a dog crate. Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a "prisoner of love."

  As they began to grow, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my ears, and gave me kisses on my nose. I loved everything about them and their touch - because your touch was now so infrequent - and I would have defended them with my life if need be. I would sneak into their beds and listen to their worries and secret dreams, and together we waited for the sound of your car in the driveway.

  There had been a time, when others asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your wallet and told them stories about me. These past few years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I had gone from being "your dog" to "just a dog," and you resented every expenditure on my behalf.

  Now, you have a new career opportunity in another city, and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your "family," but there was a time when I was your only family.

  I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness. You filled out the paperwork and said "I know you will find a good home for her." They shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog, even one with "papers."

  You had to pry your son's fingers loose from my collar as he screamed "No, Daddy! Please don't let them take my dog!" And I worried for him, and what lessons you had just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and responsibility, and about respect for all life. You gave me a good-bye pat on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and leash with you.

  You had a deadline to meet and now I have one, too. After you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming move months ago and made no attempt to find me another good home. They shook their heads and asked.... "How could you?"

  They are as attentive to us here in the shelter as their busy schedules allow. They feed us, of course, but I lost my appetite days ago. At first, whenever anyone passed my pen, I rushed to the front, hoping it was you - that you had changed your mind - that this was all a bad dream... or I hoped it would at least be someone who cared..... anyone who might save me.

  When I realized I could not compete with the frolicking for attention of happy puppies, oblivious to their own fate, I retreated to a far corner and waited. I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of the day, and I padded along the aisle after her to a separate room. A blissfully quiet room. She placed me on the table and rubbed my ears, and told me not to worry.

  My heart pounded in anticipation of what was to come, but there was also a sense of relief. The "prisoner of love" had run out of days. As is my nature, I was more concerned about her. The burden which she bears weighs heavily on her, and I know that, the same way I knew your every mood.

  She gently placed a tourniquet around my foreleg as a tear ran down her cheek. I licked her hand in the same way I used to comfort you so many years ago. She expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. As I felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay down sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured "How could you?"

  Perhaps because she understood my dogspeak, she said "I'm so sorry." She hugged me, and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I went to a better place, where I wouldn't be ignored or abused or abandoned, or have to fend for myself - a place of love and light so very different from this earthly place. With my last bit of energy, I tried to convey to her with a thump of my tail that my "How could you?" was not directed at her. It was you, My Beloved Master, I was thinking of. I will think of you and wait for you forever. May everyone in your life continue to show you so much loyalty.

The End - Jim Wllis

  ** A note from the author:
  If "How Could You?" brought tears to your eyes as you read it, as it did to mine as I wrote it, it is because it is the composite story of the millions of formerly owned pets who die each year in American and Canadian animal shelters.
