At Manitoba Mutts we take in dogs from all over Manitoba who have been abandoned, abused or surrendered at no fault of their own. Our dogs are tested with other dogs, cats and kids. Please note that listed breeds are more often than not just a guess based on the appearance of the dog. Also, full grown weight for puppies is a guess based on their mother and supposed breeds. Almost all of our rescues are purebred mutts, which is what makes them so special, they're one of a kind.
Reuben Age: 7 years (01-02-2010) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: M (30-50lbs) Hi I'm Reuben! I'm an energetic dog who likes to have fun. I know basic commands, I am house trained and I walk well on leash using a gentle leader. I get along with most dogs after a proper intro, so I would need to meet any furry roommates before moving in. I prefer to be in a home without cats and with children 12 and up. I have some seperation anxiety and don't like to be left alone, so I require an indestructible kennel. I am a handsome and snuggly guy, looking for someone to love me, will it be you?

Woody Age: 4 years (2013-04-01) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: Large (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Woody! I’m an easy going boy who loves having my paw held while I'm getting pets. I am fully housetrained and working on kennel training. I do alright when I'm left out during the day, but sometimes I get into dirty dishes and the recycling. I haven't run into too many cats, but when I have, it seemed pretty interesting! I do ok with other dogs, as long as there's a proper introduction. I would need to meet any dog I would be expected to live with. All of our neighbours (adults and kids) love to give me pets and I really like getting them! I LOVE going for walks and I'm polite on the leash when we're using a Gentle Leader, though I'm still getting used to it! I am a friendly guy who would love to keep an eye out your front window. Will you take a chance on me? Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Virginia *ADOPTION FEE SPONSORED* THANK YOU LINDA M.!* Age: 2 years (2015-04-23) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: Large (50-80lbs) Drum roll please! Announcing the great, the athletic, the stunning... Virginia! Ginny! GinGin! That's me! What ever you call me I will bring the spark to your life! Are you bored? Spending too much time on the couch? I can be your game changer. I am very energetic and would be happy to offer coaching services on my team! Can you keep up with me? I love sports, I've been training to skijor/kick sled. When I'm in my harness I can use my power to tear up the trail. All you have to do is stay upright! I enjoy rollerblading and biking in summer. I could wrestle with canine pals all day, so if you have a dog already I hope they love to play! I am also great at fetch and tug-o-war. You name it, I'm game to play it! If cats was a game I would totally kill it! Get it? I go crazy for cats... it is NOT a win-win situation. I'm a strong lady and can be a bit of a bull in a china shop. If you have children they should be bigger than me. I would hate to accidentally push around the little ones. Also if we are going for a walk, I will need a halti or some other no-pull contraption. Those help me stay more focused for slower activities, and save your arm! I'm house trained, kennel trained, snuggle trained! I'm very food motivated which makes me eager to learn new things. I enjoy car rides and going new places. I've got a winning attitude and and a drive to excel at whatever I do. Interested families can apply to join Team Virginia, I will be holding try-outs and looking forward to seeing if you have what it takes!

Slick Age: 10 months (01-02-2017) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: L 50-80 lbs) Hi I'm Slick! I’m a very fun and active boy who loves to play, and I secretly love cuddling too. Foster Mom says I am so smart that I will learn anything for a treat. I already know sit, lay down, shake a paw, high five, spin, and roll over. One of my favourite things is going to the park, I just love to run around and chase balls and find sticks to play with, Foster Mom says I’m so good, I always come back when I hear my name! I am house trained and crate trained, but I am such a good boy my foster Mom doesn’t use the kennel anymore! I am good with kids and other dogs, but may need a few slow introductions to dogs I’m expected to live with. I’m learning how to respect the cat’s space and that he probably doesn’t want to play with me. I like going for walks but I need some work on leash manners so I need someone who will be patient with me and teach me the way. Come meet me, and take me to my forever home. ☺ Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Buffy Age: 4 years (01-31-2013) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I’m Buffy! I'm a social girl who loves people and to play with my ball and play outside. I am fully housetrained, have never had an accident in the house. I don't use a kennel because I am so good when left alone and never get into anything, I do cry when my people leave for a few minutes. I am wonderful with children! My current foster home has five and the more the merrier, I face wash them when they come from school and like everyone to be home with me. I would also be wonderful for someone older who is home a lot, I really love my people. I don't like being around other dogs, I think they will steal my food or my foster mom's attention so a home without is best. I have not been tested around cats but my foster mom thinks I would not be okay with them because I chase small animals in the yard. I love going on walks but need practice to not pull on my leash. I sleep quietly on the floor at the end of my foster mom's bed but if she let me I would sleep right on her pillow with her. I am a super snuggly girl who would like to keep your feet warm if you let me. Is there room in your heart for me? Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact email@example.com for more information.
Joanie **Adoption Fee Sponsored** Age: 2 years (05-06-2015) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) I’m Joanie and my foster mom says I am the sweetest girl EVER and that I deserve a good home.. I really love attention and being around people! I love going for walks and rides in the car. I am my foster dad's faithful companion in the car. I am well behaved in the house and do not need to be crated. My foster mom and dad leave me out when they are away and I just lounge around the house waiting for them to come home. However I will go in my crate if you insist. I am house trained and have no accidents, I will you know when I need to go out. When I get excited, like before walks or car rides I get very expressive and can be very talkative. I can really make my foster mom and dad laugh. I do have a reduced range of motion in my hips, but I am taking glucosamine and it seems to really help! My foster human can tell you more about this. I need to go to a home without any other animals or kids under 12. I’m such a sweet girl and would love to meet you. Please be my forever family!!

Pinky Age: 1 year (10-05-2016) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi, I’m Pinky but I respond better to the name Ghost! I am a super cuddly girl who also loves to go on walks and explore. I am house trained and kennel trained. Once I am used to my new surroundings, you could trust me to be left out of my kennel- I like to just lay on my bed and chew on a toy! I go to doggy day camp and have lots of fun and I get along with the large dog who I live with now. I am a big girl and can be a little rough for small dogs and I am a bit picky with who I play with. I would prefer to have a dog sibling who is easy-going and respects my space. I would be ok as an “only dog” too. I love to go for walks and even though I am big, I walk like a dream with an Easy-Walk harness. I also have great recall with my foster mom so I get to run and play off leash with my foster sister when there are no strangers around. I am a sweet girl who is a big lap dog. I would love nothing more than to cuddle, chew on a toy and watch TV with you. Once I trust you, I will show you unconditional love! Will you take a chance on me??

Zak Age: 7 months (27-03-2017) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80 lbs) Hi, I’m Zak! I'm a sweet and active boy who loves playing with my foster brother! I am house trained and crate trained but prefer to be with you! I am great with kids/ and other dogs, I have been introduced to a cat, and I thought it would be fun to chase and bark at her, so I do need more practice with my cat manners, or a cat free house. I am good on my leash, and learn very quickly if you have a few treats in your pocket to reward me when I do good! I am learning that I don't have to worry about protecting my food or bones from my foster brother. Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Chica Age: 11 months (02-06-2017) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Chica! I’m a super fun girl who loves playing with toys and cuddling with my foster mum. I am fully housetrained and fully crate trained, I also know my basic commands, and will do anything for a tasty treat! I am very good with other dogs my size but haven't spent time with children or cats. Sometimes I jump up when I'm excited, but I'm working on it! I LOVE going for walks and am pretty good on the leash, I only pull a little when I see something really exciting like another dog or squirrel. I am a very sweet girl who would love to take you to the park! If you're looking for an energetic, fun loving friend, I'm your girl!

Angel Age: 2 years (12-01-2015) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi! My name is Angel, wonderful mama to the Winter Litter. My motherly duties are over and now it is time to live my life for me; not just being someone's mom. I have come to love so many new things in my life: a safe, warm home, couch hogging, no shortage of food and yummy treats, toys and friends to play with and best of all, lots of love and attention and human companionship. I still have lots of new things to learn and experience yet but all in due time. I'm a gorgeous, friendly playful girl who loves other dogs and cats but they don't always play nice sometimes. I am fully house trained and crate trained for longer time periods. I do very well left loose overnight and for shorter stints when you are away. I do need to work on my leash and command training and also my recall abilities but I'm a smart girl, I'll get it right with more practice. I really love people and loved all the attention I got from the kids that I’ve met! I was a county dog, so like many before me, I may get nervous at first with new things and sounds but with you by my side for assurance, I will be fine and adapt to them. Do you think that I could fit into your life? I would sure love the chance to find out! Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Eve Age: 4 years (12-17-2013) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Eve (Finley)! I’m laid back, easy-going girl who loves doing whatever my humans are doing! I am fully housetrained, and I am such a good girl that don't need a crate (they make me anxious anyway..). I am very smart and know basic commands. I am also good with dogs if it's just for a visit, cats don't seem to like me..I would prefer have all your love for myself! I love peanut butter, and tennis balls! I like short walks in the winter (the cold ground makes my paws sore!) I am a strong girl and sometimes pull on the leash if I see a friend I want to meet. I am a happy girl who would love a quiet life. Want to nap all day? Play? Have company on car rides (I love to stick my nose out the window!)..? I'm your girl! I'd love to be part of your family!

Banff (Asha) Age: 2 years (08-29-2015) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Banff but go by Asha! I’m a high energy and fun girl who loves to be around her humans! I will require an active home and would love some further obedience training. I am working on housetraining as sometimes I have separation anxiety if left alone too long. I have been cratetrained and would like to continue in a positive manner. I am good playing with other dogs for a play date but will be best suited to a home that I don't have to share with other pals. I haven't met any cats and may be better suited to older children as I have reacted better with them. I like going for walks but I am still a young girl so practice makes perfect! I am a super sweet and beautiful girl who would love to keep you company! Do you have a spot on the couch to cuddle with me?

Norma Age: 2 years (12-19-2015) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Pleasure to make your acquaintance, my name is Norma. Thank you for taking a moment to let me tell you about myself. I haven't always had it so easy. I've grown up on the streets. Had to struggle to get food, deal with unwanted pregnancy, was the victim of bullying, and survived an accident that left me scarred. Then my life changed. By some miracle I was allowed in a house, got a warm bed, a full belly and a gentle hand to show me love. I'm not sure how I won this lottery but I'm not looking back. My world is amazing now. I am fully house trained. I am content in a kennel when people are gone but I roam free in my foster home because I don't make a mess... unless you leave the garbage or dirty dishes out, I have yet to shake my habit to search for food. Speaking of old ways, I occasionally will resource guard bones or tasty chews, so when I'm done, my foster mom cleans them up so I don't growl at the other dog here. I have improved because I know the dog I live with means me no harm. The resident dog here is a quiet calm dog that doesn't want to play, which is the way I like it. Too much energy makes me nervous. I don't want to live with cats because my urge to chase them is too strong, no one wants this, especially the cats! I am a very relaxed dog in general. I don't mind having my nails clipped, getting brushed and I had a bath for the first time... I think water is a bit scary. I am timid when first meeting people but warm up really quickly when I realize you want to be my friend. Even though I'm not that old, I have an old soul and a peaceful nature. I have had the opportunity to visit a work office, a university student destressing event and an adult day program. My patient calm nature serves these visits well. I think I found my calling... therapy dog! I gently will go to everyone that wants to pet me, therapy dog is a job? Not when you enjoy it as much as I do! I love car rides and going places you go. I get tethered in the back because if I had my way, I would share the drivers seat because I prefer to be close to my human at all times. Did I mention I love cuddles? I will never turn down an opportunity to connect deeper with you, and continue to learn to trust. I am very gentle walking on a leash. While walks are great, I'm always eager to get back home... my scar is not protected by fur so in winter I get chilled. That reminds me, let me tell you about some special care consideration I need from you. I had a burn that left me a patch without fur. In winter I need a jacket to keep warm while on walks. In summer I will need to have UV protection, either sunscreen or a light shirt. Occasionally I may need cream on my skin if it is dry so it doesn't crack with my movements. Do you have time to help me out with this? I love to be near humans and I love to be pet. If you could show me some tender love and care I will stick by you through thick and thin. Life is a journey, I'm thankful and thrilled for the new opportunities of this next chapter, can I share it with you? "and never could I have known the taste of heaven, had I not swallowed pieces of hell, first." -ebn Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact email@example.com for more information.
Chevy Age: 4 years (05-17-2013) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: XL (80+lbs) Hi everyone I’m Chevy! I am a very easy going and the most sweetest guy that loves lots of attention! I had a pretty rough start when I came to live with my foster family because I needed a big surgery on my leg called TPLO (tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy) or as my Foster Mama says a ruptured ACL. Unfortunately, I will have to take it easy because my Doctor said that there is a really good chance that my other leg could rupture and I sure don’t want to go through that again…even though my Foster Mama said I was the BESTEST patient!! My Foster Mama smiles so proud when she calls me her “Gentle Giant” when I lay my head on her lap or sit on her feet. I give lots of kisses especially when my family come home from work/school. I do not go in a crate because I am so well behaved and my big soft bed is where I like to rest my head. I have a four legged foster sister and she was such a good friend to me while I was recuperating from my surgery so I would like to have a doggy brother or sister because I don’t like being alone. My favorite thing is to be where ever my family is I like to wrestle on the floor with my teenage foster brother (…wink wink) but now that I am getting better I like to play tug of war with my toys and it would be great to have a big back yard to romp around in because I need to stretch my long legs. Now that my leg is slowly healing and that I can walk on all four legs again, I enjoy going for walks but I am very strong and can pull too hard sometimes when I catch a scent of something interesting so I need reminding to walk nice! I am great with dogs and older kids. I am very curious of this furry thing that lives with me called “a cat”! I give him kisses sometimes but he just rubs his tail in my face. I like meeting new people but I have to be reminded to stay back because I get so excited I push through just because I want to see who it is coming to visit us!! I can do a few tricks and I shake a paw every chance I get especially for a carrot or yummy dog treats. Please take a chance on me and I promise I will love you as much as you will love me!
