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.
Taco Age: 1 year (2017-02-23) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: M (30-50 lbs) Hi I'm Taco! I’m an active one year old girl with the biggest heart who loves to play and excercise. I am fully housetrained and not crate trained because I don’t need to be crated. I am good with some other dogs. I LOVE going for walks but need practice on the leash. I am a sweetheart who would love to go to the park and run a lot. I would be the most affectionate and faith guard.

Reuben *ADOPTION FEE SPONSORED* Thank you Shelley P! 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 separation anxiety and don't like to be left alone, so I require an indestructible kennel, which is included in my adoption fee. I am a handsome and snuggly guy, looking for someone to love me, will it be you? Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact email@example.com for more information.
Comet Age: 3 years (2015-04-01) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Comet! I’m a fun girl who loves carrying toys around and giving lots of kisses. I am housetrained and don’t use a kennel as I don’t need one. I love kids and dogs to play with, my foster mom doesn’t think I would be good with a cat because I chase the squirrels. I am not very good on leash yet as I’m afraid of other dogs passing but my foster mom says that is okay because I’m not allowed to go on too many walks with my funny heart. I have dilated cardiomyopathy. I’m fine right now but in the next few years I will need to have daily heart medication. My foster mom says it doesn’t slow me down any and that I am the silliest and most loving girl ever. I am a very loving girl who would love to make you laugh and snuggle as much as possible. Can I be your snuggle buddy? Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Marbles Age: 8 months (08-22-2017) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi, I'm Marbles! I'm a beautiful and friendly girl. I am a big, fun and super energetic girl who loves to do everything with you! I love car rides and I behave so well on them, I love going for ice cream and anywhere you want to go! I love toys and I need lots of toys and chewy toys to keep me busy. I am really smart and I have learned many commands but I need an experienced owner who will continue to work with me and keep teaching me more to keep me busy. I can play fetch and I'm learning Frisbee and to go bike riding. At this stage in my life I am very active and I need to be exercised daily and a fenced yard would be best because I like to run around and spend lots of time outside but if I'm on a rope I will probably figure out how to get out and head on an adventure. I am great with cats, I'm very gentle with them. I get along with other dogs, I like to play so a dog that's active or likes to play would be best. I currently go to doggy daycare a couple of times a week and I get along great with all the dogs and I come back tired. I am good with kids 10 and older and once I learn to meet and greet new people properly and not like the puppy that's inside this giant body I will be great with smaller children too, I love them, I just have to learn more manners. I still like to try to jump and put everything in my mouth so that's why older children are better suited for me until I learn to behave appropriately which my foster family is working on. I make a difficult first impression because I'm very excited when I meet people but once I settle you will see why I'm such a charming and sweet pup! I am good in my kennel with some treats and a Kong when my foster family is out and I sleep with my foster sometimes on the bed and sometimes on a dog bed at night. I am a gentle, cuddly giant when I settle down to go to bed and to watch TV, heads up though, sometimes I snore! I love to cuddle and once I settle down from meeting new people or I've got my exercise in for the day I'm a sweet, gentle girl. I am a work in progress and I need an energetic family who is willing to continue my training and take me on all kinds of adventures with them because being with my family is my favourite place to be! Is your family the right fit for me because I will be a wonderful family member for the right family! Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact email@example.com for more information.
Barbie Age: 6 years (06–14-2011) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Barbie! I’m an easy-going girl who loves to be with my people and nap on soft things like the couch. I am fully house and crate trained, though sometimes I get stubborn and will not go into the crate even with treats. Once I am in the crate though, I am good the entire day and just nap while my foster parents are at work. I get excited sometimes and like to steal my foster dad’s socks/shoes, chew on the side of the coffee table while playing with my foster sister (she was cheating and using it as a fort) and jump up to say hi. I also love rolling in the snow and travelling to Narnia under the deck. I haven’t had the chance to meet any kids, but my foster parents think I would be good with older children because I like any human I’ve met so far. I don’t like cats (or probably any small snack sized animals) and require a slow introduction to other dogs because I lived my life outside up until now. My foster sister is a dog my size that I love to play with now, but that was after a long (5 months), slow introduction and a few scraps that foster dad had to break up. I would be happier with a very experienced dog owner if I have other dog siblings or as the only dog in the home. I LOVE going for walks but need practice with my leash manners. I am a sweet, devoted girl who would love to spend our evenings together giving you kisses and sometimes chewing on your appendages. Is there room for me in your family?

Cairo Age: 2 years (2016-03-13) |Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi, I'm Cairo, mama to the Egyptian litter! Not many people know this, but in ancient Egypt, dogs were symbols of gods. They were also pets, and since I'm such sweet girl, I think I would have done well in those times!! Anyways, I absolutely love being outside, I happily spend hours outside when I can! When I'm inside I can be a little bit of a couch potato, but don't worry, I'll let you know when I want your attention! I'm fully housetrained, I make noise to make sure you know when I need out. If you're not quick enough I will scratch at the door too. I haven't tried going in a crate, my foster mums say I don't need to because I am a perfect lady during the day when they are at work. I like playing with other dogs, but am not convinced cats are to be worshipped because they don't play the same way dogs do! I think I would learn to be better with cats, eventually. I haven't been going for walks yet because I don't have all my vaccines (being a mom is hard!), but I've been practicing in the yard with the leash and I think I'll be pretty comfortable when I get a little more practice. I am the sweetest "iwiw" (that's the ancient Egyptian word for dog) who would love to evaluate all the comfiest spots in your home and snuggle up beside you on one of them!

Pinky (Ghost) Age: 1 year (10-05-2016) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi there, tall, blonde canine gal here, looking for a serious monogamous relationship. I am looking for someone who is fun and active, who also likes to snuggle. I love to run and play fetch and when I am tired I would love to watch TV or read a book with you, preferably on top of you...haha. I am house trained and kennel trained. I am trustworthy in the house and would prefer to lounge on my dog bed and chew on a bone while you are away. I don't jump into new situations paws first, and will need to learn to trust you- but when I fall in love, I fall hard. I will be by your side through thick and thin. Since I am looking for a serious relationship, I would need to be number one in your eyes. No other dogs, cats or kids please. I would tolerate another older human or two- with the right treats, I could fall in love with just about anyone. My favourite things are treats and running. You will have to check out the video of me trying Skijoring- I had fun because it involved both of my favourite things! I have great recall too, so you don't have to be able to keep up with me while I run and explore. Are you are a patient, loving human who is willing to help me gain confidence in new situations? Then I would be your perfect, beautiful, loyal companion! Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Hudson Age: 11 months (2017-05-24)|Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi! I’m Hudson! I’m a big handsome boy who loves to take it easy. My favourite place to be is napping at your side. I love to play fetch and I’m great for runs and hikes. I’m a very quick learner. I’ve learned how to walk without pulling on the leash. Although when I see a squirrel, watch out! I’m pretty strong. Other than that, I’m always gentle. I’m great with kids, other dogs and cats too! I’m almost perfectly house-trained and I’m still working over my fear of the kennel. I’m not the least bit destructive though when I’m left on my own. I still get a bit of separation anxiety but it's getting better as I get used to being safe and cared for. I’m one of the most loving and loyal dogs you will ever meet. If you want a goofy, handsome companion who can adapt to almost any life-style, let me know! I really love tennis balls… hint, hint!
