Whiskey the chocolate lab mix
Hi. My name is Whiskey and I am another one of Rosie's Northern gems! I am a little over one year old and a rock solid 68 lbs. I look to be almost entirely chocolate Lab and Rosie did my DNA and found I was 80% Lab and 20% Boxer, more or less. I was spotted by volunteers as a stray in James Bay and they could see immediately that I was a special dog. I am very eager to please and treat motivated so should be a great family dog with proper training. I do need a lot of exercise, so an active family would be my best match. . Like most young labs, I am a clown and need play time with you. In the house, so far I restrict most of my rowdiness to dog toys and bouncing around with joy. I could easily bowl over a young child with my exuberance, so bigger people are best because 68 lbs. of jumpy happy Lab is something. I have tested positive for Lyme disease but was treated with a lengthy course of antibiotics. Lucky for me, tests showed so far it did not affect my kidneys so that is great news. I will always be Lyme positive but it looks like I will be able to live a good life with it. I have been neutered and microchipped and am ready to go. If you would like a big sweet, gorgeous dog, who is just thrilled to be in a family, please apply for me!

If you adopt from Rosie, your dog will be vet checked, vaccinated for DHPP and Rabies (if the dog is over 4 months), given a treatment for fleas and parasites as well as spayed or neutered before adoption. Our adoption fee is $400 and $300 for dogs of 8 years old and older.
Rosie Animal Adoption is a proud member of CAACQ (Companion Animal Adoption Center of Québec)
Rosie Animal Adoption only rescues dogs - we are sorry that we are unable to rescue cats.
This organization is run entirely by volunteers - there are no paid employees. We try our best to save as many homeless dogs as possible. Since there are only a few volunteers, please understand that we are unable to answer phone calls about the animals. The first step is to fill out an adoption application which you can find at: www.rosieanimaladoption.org . You will be contacted only if you are a suitable match. Rosie Animal Adoption does not have a shelter where you can come and meet the dogs. All showings are by appointment after your application has been approved or at adoption clinics. If you have any questions, please contact us today. Please note, we do not adopt strays to families with children under 12. All family members must be present at the time of adoption.
Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.
We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.
