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.
Trine Age:2 years (2013-02-02) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: Medium (30-50lbs) Hi I'm Trine but I answer to Amy! I'm a very shy girl! After 6 weeks in care me and my foster mom have really gotten to understand each other,and I'm really starting to come out of my shell. Now instead of waking up in the morning and having breakfast while my foster mom drinks her coffee then going for a stroll thru the neighbourhood, we're waking up and going to the hockey rink where I run around like a maniac with my dog room mates, then when we get home I work for my breakfast in a food puzzle. This really tuckers me out and I'm able to relax during the day while moms at work. (You see my nervous energy was getting me in a little trouble while she was away, and it was leading to a very frustrated foster mom and a confused dog) And after work everyday we go to a new park. I love to stretch out my legs and run and use my nose to explore! This would have been hard for me before but now I realize how much fun it is! My nervous pacing and licking & scratching have almost completely disappeared. I think if you have the patience to let me reach my full potential I could be a great dog for the right family! I would do best in a home with an older confident dog, absolutely no kids and preferably with someone who can continue my doggy training classes. I love going for walks and am excellent on the leash. I am a very shy girl who needs a quiet home and a forever family with a lot of patience to wait for me to come to them but once I’m comfortable I’m a really sweet loyal girl.

Reuben Age: 5 years (2010-01-02)|Sex: Male Breed: Mixed |Size: Medium (30-50lbs) Hi I'm Reuben! I'm in need of an awesome home with no other dogs or a very relaxed dog that I can have slow introductions with. I am a playful guy who is great on a leash. I sometimes need some focus correction when passing other dogs during our walks, but I'm really good at listening to you. I require a home with a fenced yard and without children under 12. I know I sound a little picky, but trust me, if you have the time to get to know me, we'll be best buds! Will you take a chance on me?

Indy Age:2 years (2013-07-23) |Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: Medium (30-50lbs) Hi I’m a sweet girl who loves belly rubs and hanging out with my foster parents. I am fully housetrained and crate trained, but prefer to be left uncreated. I have not met any cats or kids, but I don’t like other dogs and need a slow introduction to them because I am unsure and want to protect my family. I LOVE treats and will learn any trick to get one. Not to toot my own horn, but I am very smart. I have had some practice on a leash and really enjoyed going for walks but had to take a break while undergoing my heart worm treatments. I can't wait to start going for walks again and perfecting my leash manners. I am loving, gentle dog who would love to spend all my time with you. Is there room for me in your life?

Dexter Age: 5 years (2010-06-15) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: Large(50-80lbs) Watch his Pet Profile feature from Shaw TV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4Y63MgZ9fw Hello, I am Dexter! I have been through so much in the last 5 years. I was then rescued by MMDR and put through an intensive doggie rehab to be able to trust humans and other dogs again. MMDR believed in me so much, they spent a lot of money so I can be happy again. I am glad they did, because I am a very very happy dog now. I am now living with my foster family for a month and a half now, that contains 2 small female dogs and 1 male dog. My foster mom has noticed how I have grown to be loving, and gentle to all dogs, it was hard at first but I learned fast that I love having friends. I love playing with one of my foster sister, who has so much energy, but I play very gentle with her, even though she thinks she is tough. I am house trained and wander all over the house while my foster parents are away. I like my exercise, especially walks and playing with my siblings. I am a big dog, and playful, so I prefer bigger children that can't get knocked over easily, especially when I play. I also need a tall fence because I can jump high. I really really like being held and petted. I never knew how great it felt before, so I will probably climb your lap, or your bed, and paw at you until I get what I want; your hand on my head, and me cuddled up very close to you. All I want is to please my person, I even sit and let them clean me up and cut my nails :) Someday, I would love to have a loving and special family to call my own, my forever home, and a doggie sister to play with lots and to teach me more things I missed out on. Can you be that family? Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact email@example.com for more information.
Jessie Age: 2 years (2013-01-25) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed |Size: Medium (30-50lbs) Hi! I'm Jesse! I'm a very laid back, quiet, easy going girl who loves to chill out and relax with my foster parents. I am fully house trained and I'm working on crate training. I don't have all my vaccinations, so I haven't been for a walk yet, but I love practicing in the back yard and my foster mom says I'm getting really good on the leash. I'm good with kids, cats but other dogs make me nervous. Although I do have a little bit of food aggression from living on the street, I'm learning to share and my foster dad says I'm getting better everyday! I'm a sweet, loving girl who would love to cuddle up and watch movies with you. Please take a chance on me. You won't regret it.

Nessarose Age:2 years (2013-09-15) |Sex: Female Breed: Mixed| Size: Large (50-80lbs) Hi, I'm Nessarose. I'm the mama to the Wicked litter. I am a sweet girl who just loves people! I am fully crate trained, but don't need to be crated as I haven't been destructive when left alone. I will scratch at the door to let you know when I have to go outside. I love playing fetch and keep away, I carry my nylabone in the hopes you will throw it for me. I am very smart and already know sit and shake a paw. I currently live with cats and other dogs and we get along great. I have met a few small kids (4 and 6) and they make me nervous so I would do best in a home with older children. I am a very laid back gentle girl who's looking for a home to be spoiled in, could that be yours? Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact email@example.com for more information.
