At Manitoba Mutts we take in dogs and cats from all over Manitoba who have been abandoned, abused or surrendered at no fault of their own. Since we are a foster-home based rescue, not all of our animals are tested with other dogs, cats and kids. Please note that we do not list breeds as the breeds of our dogs and pups are more often than not a guess based on their appearance. Also, full grown weight for puppies is also a guess based on their mother (if known) and supposed breeds. Almost all of our rescues are purebred mutts, which is what makes them so special, they're one of a kind.
Sasha Age: 9 months (09-25-2017) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: M 30-50 lbs) Hi, I’m Sasha and it’s time to update my bio since my first one was done way back in March! I’m still a spunky girl who is full of energy, but I’m a bit cautious when meeting new people. I would probably do best in a home without young children since their unpredictability makes me a bit nervous. I really like to play with toys and chew on my antler and wood chew toy. I love to play with my foster sisters and I love walks even though I am still learning how to walk properly on a leash-so many things to remember it can get a bit overwhelming. I am housetrained and I go in my kennel when my foster mom heads out to work or my foster parents go out for a bit. At night I get to sleep on the bed with my foster sisters (I don’t understand how my foster mom can sleep on the edge of the bed and not fall off!) Now for my medical updates....I had surgery for cherry eye and it’s healed up pretty good. I also have an ACL issue in one of my legs that may require surgery when I’m 10 months old but the folks at Manitoba Mutts say that they will pay for my operation. Coming into rescue has been awesome and I still have a lot to learn, are you able to give me the time and patience to continue growing into an amazing fur family member?

Bailey (Maya) *adoption fee waived* Age: 11 years (2007-02-13) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hello I’m Bailey but I’ve been known as Maya for the last 6 years. I had a great home but unfortunately my owner has become ill and can’t look after me anymore. Everyone who meets me says I’m a very sweet, laid back girl. The vet diagnosed me with Cushings disease which is common in older dogs. My symptoms are increased thirst and I tend to leave a little urine puddle when I’m lying in one spot for awhile. My foster mom puts a diaper on me when I’m in the house for awhile and I don’t mind it at all. I am not on any medication for it as I am not in any pain. I love going for walks and car rides. I walk great on a leash. I haven’t had to be in a kennel because I don’t cause any trouble when left alone. I love the other dogs I’ve met but would also be ok as your only pet as well. Kids love me as I am very gentle. I’m a senior gal but still have pep and a lot of love to give (and I’m very pretty). I would love to meet you.

Taylor Age: 1 year (2016-12-22) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi! I’m Taylor! I’m a beautiful, sweet girl with a playful but laidback demeanor and a lot of love to dole out to my humans. You can usually find me lounging around close by you, being your shadow following you wherever you go or just being a couch potato! Home life, love, attention, dog beds, couch, toys, roommates, good food, treats and less freedom than I’m accustomed to; being a stray, these things are all new to me and I am adjusting very well to my new life. I am fully house trained; never an accident in the house for this girl. I do have mild separation anxiety but I am working on it and doing better. I settle well in my crate when you leave me even though I don’t really like going or being in it. Recently, I was tested being loose for 5 hours and did excellent without anything amiss but only if I have another dog for company while you are gone; I just don’t like being alone. At night, I like to sleep on the floor by your bed until you get up. You want to sleep in later on your day off? I’m good with that too. I do very well on walks considering that the leash is very new for me; I am right by your side the entire way. However, I am leash reactive to other dogs or other small animals that I may encounter. I am currently attending training classes with my foster mom to help me deal with it and am showing improvement with my practice walks around the neighborhood. I think I would be good with children as I did hang out at a school until I came into care. I did very well with the 2 very young children I have met but was very well supervised as should be with all young children. I have been assessed recently and a home without CATS, SMALL BREED DOGS, BIRDS OR RODENTS are a must for me as I do have small prey drive. I currently live with two dogs(one is 30 lbs) and have never had any problem with them or with the neighbor’s dog so with a proper introduction and compatibility, I could live with another dog or if not, I would also do very well as the only dog as I am such a people lover and could then relish all of your love and attention. I’m a pretty smart cookie but occasionally can be stubborn when I don’t want to do something you want. Maybe it’s that husky stubborn streak in me? I’m still working on my recall and command training but with all those yummy treats you give me, I will get it right. I do require a fenced yard due to my love of freedom and my imperfect recall skills; again, a husky trait I am told! I probably won’t be the kind of dog you can take to the dog park but so are a lot of dogs out there that aren’t either. I am going to be tested for doggy daycare very soon so if I do well, I will be sure to let you know how I fare. Are you looking for a friendly, happy, loveable girl like me? My ideal home would be with someone who is home a lot, a stay at home mom, retired or work at home family so I will never feel lonely again. Remember, I was a stray. I may have had a family once who abandoned me to my own devices. I was scared and alone. Think how you would feel! A loving family to spend quality time with and to continue with the training I’ve started is what I need to help me build up my trust and confidence skills and to show me the love and attention that I missed out on; then those feelings of abandonment and loneliness may soon become a forgotten memory. Come meet me. We just may be a perfect match!! Ever wanted to spend some time in Gimli? It’s where I currently live. You could have a beach day and lunch and then come meet me afterwards.

Hudson Age: 1 year (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 other dogs and cats too! But I need a home with no children, or children over 12 years old. 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 would do best with a human that is home often, or if not, a canine companion would be best! 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! I also am in need of a foster home until I get adopted!

Victoria Age: 5 years (2012-10-28) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I'm Victoria. Momma to the beautiful MB beaches litter. My pups have moved to their new families and now I'm ready to find mine. I've thought about what I would like in my forever home. I've decided what I would like most is someone who can spend lots of time with me. Like a retired person/couple. A stay at home parent (and yes I like kids). Someone who could take me to work with them. I'm a very social girl and I LOVE people! Being a part of whatever is going on makes me happy. My 2nd love is food. Watch yours or it may mysteriously disappear! I do like the company of other dogs. A dog buddy in my forever home would be lovely. If not, playdates and visits to the dog park would be important to me. I'm not sure about cats. I like to chase squirrels and rabbits so may also chase cats. I do not need to be kennelled. Leash training is coming along ok. Keep treats close and I walk well. I have a beautiful long coat that will require regular grooming. I enjoy laying in the shade, a cool breeze blowing while i get brushed. It's so relaxing. Loyal, loving, smart and playful. Just a few qualities of mine that will have you falling in love with me. Adopt me and let our adventures begin! Visit www.manitobamutts.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Cricket (Daisy) Age: 2 years (2015-11-13) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi! I'm Cricket, but my foster mom calls me Daisy! I’m a friendly and fun girl who loves snuggling! I am fully housetrained and not crate trained. My foster mom says I'm a good girl and don't need the crate! I would love to have a home with kids, because I love them! Sometimes I get excited and jump, so it might be best if the kids are a little older. I don’t like cats because they keep trying to run away and my foster mom doesn't let me chase them! I can be picky about who my other dog friends are, but I sure am curious about all dogs I meet! I LOVE going for walks but I'm often so enthusiastic that I pull on the leash a little, my foster mama says I still do a great job though!! I am a very sweet girl who would love to go on long walks, then cuddle up with you and be a coach potato. Is there room in your home for me?

Ginger *Adoption fee sponsored* Age: 7 years (2010-10-10) | Sex: Female Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) Hi I’m Ginger! I’m a sweet, laid back girl who is pretty low key! I’m quite shy and timid initially but I warm up in time! I am great with kids , I am house and crate trained, but I don’t need to be crated while you are away because I am so good! I am good on a leash and off leash I basically stick right by you. I prefer to be the only animal in the house , I think my old age is kicking in and I just prefer quiet. I have hypothyroidism and will need to be on long-term medications. Check your local vet for pricing on my meds as every vet is different. Also I require bloodwork every 6 months just to make sure my thyroid levels are staying where they should be. To help with these costs, the adopter will be provided with a $1000 vetting credit at Dakota Veterinary Hospital. Are you looking for an older girl to cuddle and chill out with? If so, I’m your lady!

Noah (Kieran) Age: 10 months (2017-07-31) | Sex: Male Breed: Mixed | Size: L (50-80lbs) "Hi I'm Noah (Kieran)! I’m a very active and energetic young boy, so couch potatoes need not apply! I LOVE to play outside with toys and run zoomies around the yard. I have not had any accidents in my current foster place but took a few days to settle in my dog run. In the past, I also slept quite well in a kennel. I love having other k9 pals to play with but I have not met children yet. Due to my high energy, I may be too much for young children as well as timid cats. I did live with cats before but I am a bit hyper and like to chase them. I like going for walks but as a young guy, practice makes perfect. I am a very handsome dude who would love to work on positive training and have play time with you! Take a chance on me?"

Comet *Adoption fee waived* 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. Manitoba Mutts is providing a $1200 vetting credit at Fort Garry vet to assist with future medications I may require*. 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 email@example.com for more information. *Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the vetting credit and/or additional details of my heart condition
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 disagreements. I would love an 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?

Pinky (Ghost) *Adoption fee waived* 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.
