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.

Our KID PICK dogs are pooches who are not only great with kids, but they love being around them! These dogs are specially choosen by our staff and fosters as dogs who we'd love to see adopted by families with children. We only award this to 3 dogs in care at a time so it's quite the honour. Dogs with the paw print next to "kids" are child tested and did great, so don't forget about these guys either.

Sandy

Age: 3 years (2010-09-10) | Sex: Female
Breed: Pomeranian X | Size: S (0-30lbs)

Hi there, I'm Sandy! I’m a happy, sweet, "adorable" girl who never stops smiling. I am fully housetrained and just love being outside. I love to snuggle up on my blankets in my crate, though you don’t need to close the door as I am very well behaved. Being indoors is new to me so I am learning lots, like the different textures of floors! Not a big fan of laps, yet I love to snuggle up beside you to get petted and loved. I get along great with my foster siblings, little and large! I have also met some young kids and think they are great.

Will you be the next step in my new forever journey?

Ronnie

Age: 8 months ( 04-11-2013) | Sex: Female
Breed: Husky X | Size: M (30-50lbs)

Hey everyone I'm Ronnie! I'm an active young girl who loves to tear around the house and yard. By myself or with the other dogs. I love toys especially rope tug toys or balls. I shred and eat fuzzy toys. What I love the most though is my foster mom! I'll even sit on her head while she's in bed and protect her from my foster brothers. I get along great with other dogs but haven't been exposed to cats or kids yet. I'm excellent in my crate both during the day and over night (i prefer sleeping with my person though. I am still working on housetraining and working on my leash manners.

Would you like to be my family so i can sit on your head? Or take me to the park! I hear that's a great place to run and play!

Nala

Age: 5 years (2009-02-28) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd/Husky X | Size: M (30-50 lbs)

Hi I'm Nala! I'm an easy going girl who loves everyone. I am fully houstrained and do not need to be crated. I am good with people of all sizes and ages as well as with cats and other dogs. I really like going for walks and am getting quite good at not pulling on the leash.

I am a sweetheart who would love to cuddle all day. Will you take me home?

Abby

Age: 1 year (2013-01-01) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd X | Size: M (30-50 lbs)

Hi I'm Abby! I'm a sweet, easy going girl who loves to cuddle and play with everyone! I am fully house and crate trained. I love my crate but I think I would be OK to cuddle in your room with you too. I LOVE my foster kids. When they are all tucked up in bed I make my rounds to kiss them all goodnight. I love going for walks but I do need practice with the leash.

I am a fun loving girl who would complete your family or even just keep you company! Do you have room for me to bring love and joy in to your home?

Tori

Age: 1 year (2013-01-05) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd/Corgi X | Size: M (30-50 lbs)

Hi I'm Tori ! I’m a fun, playful girl who LOVES everybody. I can show you how much I love you a little too much sometimes but my foster mum is helping me with this. I am fully house trained and go in my kennel great when you give me a yummy treat, my favourite is peanut butter! I love my foster brother so much. We love to chase each other in the yard and play together in the house. I like to settle down when it's quiet time and chew on my favourite toy. I LOVE going for walks (I'm working on my leash manners) and cuddling on your lap and giving you kisses when we are home.

I am full of love and ready to give it to the perfect family, could that be you?

Bauer

Age: 1 year (2013-03-01) | Sex: Male
Breed: Border Collie X | Size: M (30-50 lbs)

Hi, I'm Bauer! Im an easy going, laid back boy who loves people, though a little timid at first! I am skittish when it comes to sudden movements. I love being the centre of attention and a couch potato. I am working on my crate training and am almost fully housetrained. I have had a few accidents due to new smells and surroundings. I am great with other dogs and I love cats, but some of them don't seem to like me. Kids? I was great with the baby I met! I LOVE going for walks and am very polite on the leash.

I am a very charming boy who would love to be your teddy bear at night. Will you give me the chance to be all that for you?

Rusty

Age: 2 years (01-24-2012) | Sex: Male
Breed: Shepherd X | Size: M (30-50lbs)

Hi! I'm Rusty, the three legged dog! I'm an affectionate boy who loves giving kisses and recieving hugs. I am fully house and crate trained. I am nervous and slow to warm up to other dogs, especially ones like my foster brother who are very high energy. I would do best in a furever home that has a mellow dog and no children. I am not sure about cats yet as I haven't met any. I am slow to warm up to my humans but once I do I become very attached and like to follow you around. I haven't gone for any walks yet because I get cold too quickly! I do great on a leash in the house and backyard though! I am practising learning to sit and am still adjusting to missing a leg so I need frequent rest breaks. I love chewing on bones and chew toys (supervised because I am a strong chewer for my size!). I am adorable with my big ears and would love to give you lots of kisses and be a loyal companion. Will you take a chance on me?

Queenie

Age: 2 years (09-01-2011) | Sex: Female
Breed: Boxer/HuskyX | Size: M (30-50lbs)

Hi, I'm Queenie (the mom from the Royal litter). My foster mom says I am the best! I just weaned 11 babies and I am learning how to be a dog and play and have fun. What I would really really like is to find a forever home that will love me and spoil me. I love to be up on the couch, right beside you and will follow you from room to room. There is nothing I love better than to spend time with my humans. I adore my foster dad, he takes me for long walks which I enjoy. I would prefer a home where I am the only pet. I am working with MMDR's dog trainer and in time may allow other furry friends into our home. For now it's best it's just me and my humans! I am fully housetrained and don't need to be crated as I don't chew or destroy anything. I'm an easy going girl who would love to give you cuddles and kisses! Are you needing extra love?

Soda

Age: 2 years (09-22-2011) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd X | Size: M (30-50 lbs)

Hi I'm Soda! I’m a super friendly dog who loves to have fun. Tummy rubs are one of my favourite things. I absolutely enjoy them! I am currently looking after my 5 puppies and my foster says I'm an awesome mom! Because I am busy being a mom I have not been crate trained, but do not appear to need to be. Bonus for you, I am house trained! I have not really been dog or cat tested as yet but I do love people! Once I am finished raising my pups would you take a chance on me and give me the forever home I deserve? You won't regret it.

Marble

Age: 2 years (02-01-2012) | Sex: Male
Breed: Husky X | Size: M (30-50 lbs)

Hi, I'm Marble! I’m a fun loving boy who loves to play. I am 98% housetrained and fully crate trained. I am good with other dogs and cats! In fact I'd really like another furry brother or sister I can play with at my forever home. I’ve never met any kids yet, but my foster thinks that because I’m gentle and playful, I’d really enjoy them. I like going for walks and I walk really nicely. I just get distracted by all the smells! Right now I am scared of car rides. So far the only car rides I’ve taken always end with something not that fun. (Vet visit). I’m sure if the car ride ended at the park I’d start to like them! Oh yeah, my tongue is kinda funny looking but don't worry it's all OK. It gives me that "edge" that makes me extra handsome! I am a sweet playful boy who just wants a family of my own to share my love with. Is there room for me in yours?

Wallace

Age: 7 months (04-05-2013) | Sex: Male
Breed: Shepherd X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi my name is Wallace ( my fosters call me Wally ). I was a stray and was starving when I came into rescue but I am doing so much better now. Living in a home is new to me and I am learning about house and crate training. I am amazing in the kennel and I never pull on the leash when walking. I am good with other dogs, when they bark at me I just sniff them. I love to chew so my foster family gives me lots of chew toys. I am a puppy after all! I am a very good boy who would love a forever home. Can I live with you?

Lenny

Age: 7 months (2013- 08-05) | Sex: Male
Breed: Shepherd/Collie X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi, Lenny here! I'm an easy going guy with bags of personality. I am fully housetrained and I tried the crate, but I don't like it! That's OK though as I am a trustworthy guy and can be left to free roam. I love playing with my foster brothers and even the farm cats are alright. Most of all though I love my people. I need time to warm up to new things, but quickly it is all about having fun and exploring. My favourite time is walking. I love to run and explore, as long as you are close behind. I am great off leash but could do with learning some leash manners!

If you want laughter, smiles and unconditional love I'm your guy……..are you mine?

Chumlee

Age: 2 years (2011-10-17) | Sex: Male
Breed: Shepherd X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi I'm Chumlee, but people call me Benji! I’m an easy going boy who loves to snuggle! I am fully house and crate trained. I don’t need to be crated though; I’m usually happy to just lounge around all day while I wait for people to come home. I am very good with other dogs and probably children because I’m sweet natured. I don’t have a lot of experience with cats but my foster mom says I’d probably be okay with them. I LOVE going for walks and I have good leash manners but I’m a big boy so I need someone strong.

Mandatory belly rubs with adoption for this wiggly bummed sweetheart!

Is there room for me in your family?

Maggie

Age: 5 years (2009-03-01) | Sex: Female
Breed: St. Bernard/Akita X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi I'm Maggie! I’m an active girl who loves lots of love! I am fully housetrained and working on crate training but I'm so good I don't need to spend the day in my crate when you're at work. I am good with cats and some other dogs, but I don’t care for dogs that hog all the attention! I LOVE my bones and going for walks but may need a little guidance.

I am a goofy girl who would love to keep your feet warm. Will you take a chance on me?

Rondo

Age: 1 year (2013-02-20) | Sex: Male
Breed: Husky X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi! I'm RONDO! I'm an EXUBERANT young boy! My foster mom says I have one speed....fast. I LOVE to play with my foster siblings and play and play! I am kennel trained and almost completely housetrained. I need work with my leash manners but supposedly have good recall. I'm super duper great with other dogs. I don't know about cats or kids since I have yet to meet them.

If you're looking for an exuberant young man, look here, look here! And really who can resist my golden eyes and great smile! Come on..I know ya wanna!

Roar

Age: 1 year (09-20-2012) | Sex: Male
Breed: Shepherd/Chow X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi I'm Roar! I’m a fun loving active boy who loves to play outside and then come in to snuggle. I am house and crate trained. I am good with ­other dogs, and the older kids I've met but I haven't met any little children yet. Mom thinks I would do just fine with small children as long as they like to cuddle and give me belly rubs. And as long as they don't mind getting hit with my tail once and a while because it's always wagging. I would need a proper introduction to any cats to make sure we get along. I LOVE going for walks and am learning to walk nicely on a leash. I have a lovely fluffy coat that will require frequent brushing but I don't mind being brushed at all. I am a sweet and gentle boy who would love to be a part of a family of my own. Take me home and I promise to love you forever and ever.

Reba

Age: 1 year (08-22-2012) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd/Rotti X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi I'm Reba! I absolutely LOVE belly rubs and getting ALL the attention I can! My personality is quiet and easy going. I'm very friendly and like all people I have met but sometimes I can get a little excited and jump up so I'm learning not to. Mom thinks bigger kids would be better for me. I don't want to accidently knock a little one over. I am fully housetrained but not kennel trained. That's ok though as I am fully trustworthy left alone in the house. I live with another dog who has become a dear friend to me. I love to play tug-o-war and run around the yard with her. I have not met any cats yet so don't know what I'd think of one. I am a wonderful dog looking for that wonderful home I so deserve! Could it be yours?

Belle

Age: 9 months (03-20-2013) | Sex: Female
Breed: Husky X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi I'm Belle! I'm a fun loving, affectionate girl who's looking for my forever home. My energy level is on the higher side so an experienced dog owner would be best for me. I love the outdoors and going for walks. Do you run? We could be running buddies! My foster dad thinks I'd be great at skijoring or dog sledding! I'm guilty of a few kitchen pranks, you better not leave food on the counter! I have enjoyed snooping in the fridge but my foster family has taught me to stay out and I'm learning manners! I have learned quite a few commands, I'm housetrained and working on crate training. I like people but can get very excited when I meet someone new so am learning to be calm. I'm great with other female dogs but some male dogs or aggressive dogs can get me anxious. I need slow introductions and time to get to know them. To sum myself up I'm just a sweet, playful husky who needs a home that can give me lots of exercise, patience and love! If you're ready to spice up your life, I'm your girl!

Addie

Age: 2 years (03-20-2011) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd X | Size: L (50-80 lbs)

Hi I'm Addie! I’m a sweet and loving girl, who wants to be wherever you are. I love being pet and getting attention. I am fully house trained and mom doesn't crate me because I'm a good girl and behave in the house. I am good with kids and dogs, but a little shy with new ones at first. I just need a little time to warm up. I have met cats and they are ok, I'm really not too interested. I love going for walks, but prefer a halti over a leash. I had developed a bit of separation anxiety when mom would leave but I have pretty much overcome it. Having other dogs in the home has helped immensely. I’m an eager girl that would love to cuddle up and keep you warm over the winter. Is there room for me in your family?

Silver

Age: 4 years (02-03-2012) | Sex: Male
Breed: Husky X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi, I'm Silver! I'm an easy going, loving boy who enjoys getting a good belly rub. I am fully housetrained and working on not disliking being in my crate. I get very nervous when I'm left alone so you will need to be patient with me until I learn that yes, you will be back to see me! I am good with ­dog's and kids, even the little ones. But I haven't met any cats. I love going outside, running around playing doing all the fun stuff a dog should do. My leash manners are pretty good and I really enjoy my walks. I know lots of commands; sit, stay, stand, speak, shake a paw. And I especially love the treat at the end! I'm a friendly dog who would love to keep you company in all the things you do. I hope you can make room in your home for a wonderful dog like me!

Phoebe

Age: 1 year (08-03-2012) | Sex: Female
Breed: Shepherd/Lab X | Size: L (50-80lbs)

Hi, I'm Phoebe! I’m a playful girl who loves fetch and tug-o-war. I am fully house and crate trained. I am good with other dogs but sometimes get a little touchy if they get too close to my food. This is something I'm learning I need to be better with. I like cats but at times they get me a little too excited. I am still a young dog so I can learn to chill a bit and show manners when needed. There aren't any kids at my foster home so I'd probably do better with kids aged 10 and up.

I love going for walks but I pull on the leash so my foster is helping me with this too. So many things to see and smell! Can you blame me for being excited and wanting to move? I am a fun loving girl who lives for playtime at the park with you. Are you that active, energetic and fun family I've been waiting for?

Pablo

Age: 9 months (05-08-2013) | Sex: Male
Breed: Domestic Short Hair | Size: S (0-30lbs)

Hi I'm Pablo from the Backyardigans litter. I’m a shy, affectionate boy who loves to chase toys. I am litter box trained. I am good with cats and other kittens but I am not used to dogs or children. I love sitting with people and cuddling in bed, but it takes me a little while to get used to new people. Once I warm up to you I am a very loyal friend. Sitting with you and having you pet me is one of my favorite activities, but I also like it when you throw toys for me to chase! I used to be very shy so I am working on feeling comfortable with other people in my life. I am a playful kitten who would love to keep you company on a rainy day. Take a chance on me, is there room for me in your family?

Buddy

Age: 10 years (2004-02-26) | Sex: Male
Breed: Domestic Short Hair | Size: S (0-30lbs)

Hi I'm Buddy! I’m a laid back boy who loves head scratches and belly rubs. My life experience has given me the chance to pur-fect basic cat skills, including being fully litter box trained. I also have some charming character traits like cuddling up beside you and taking sips out of the bathtub tap. My other activities include sleeping on the rug, sleeping under your bed or sleeping in the hallway so I can keep a watchful eye out.

I am big boned and have an even bigger heart, with lots of love ready to give to that special someone or family. So what are you waiting for? Take me home today, I’m ready.

Hey everyone, I'm Uniqua. I'm from the Backyardigans litter. I’m a graceful, pretty little girl who loves to be an acrobat. I am litter trained and keep myself very clean. I am good with cats and other kittens but am not used to dogs or children. I like to be held and have my neck scratched, and I also like to explore places and chase toys. I am very quiet, and people always comment on how beautiful I look with my cinnamon stripes! I am a playful girl that would love to become part of your family. Will you take me home?

Hi I’m Astra! I’m a laid back girl who loves to cuddle. I lost the tip of my ears but I think it makes me extra special! I am fully litter trained. I don’t really like dogs and other cats because they make me nervous! I LOVE my people though and would love nothing more than for you to cuddle me all day. I am a sweet girl, will you take a chance on me?

Billie Holiday

Age: 1 year (12-01-2012) | Sex: Female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair | Size: S (0-30lbs)

Hello there! I'm another one of the beautiful Billy ladies! We were found abandoned and fending for ourselves until a wonderful dog named Billy found us.I started off shy but have come busting out of my shell now that I've been in care. I'm really enjoying this indoor life! I just love the other cats in my foster home and cuddled the small dog that lives here the very first time I met her. I'm a special girl as I have a very large hernia that will be fixed when I get spayed but that won't slow me down at all. I'm a tiny girl with a huge heart and so many head butts and purrs to share! Nothing would make me happier than to spend the new year with my new family...can it please be you?
