Meet Cody!


This young fellow is full of energy, life, and love! Cody came to us from Nunavut with an extensive injury to his foot. His foot looked like it may have been caught in a trap, as well as sustained frostbite. His owner was going to shoot him, but a good samaritan stepped in and contacted our partner rescue. Cody had extensive vet appointments with bandaging, and laser treatments. Cody is back to being able to enjoy more activities and this boy LOVES to be active.


We believe Cody was mainly an outdoor dog, and he loves to hangout outside. Cody needs a home with a yard, and a person who is active.  Walking, running, hiking, he is up for whatever you can think of.  Cody requires daily physical and mental exercise and will need a committed home.  

We recommend teenagers or adults as Cody can play hard.  


When Cody gets excited he engages with his mouth in a playful, but intense manner. Cody will need someone to continue to work on this with him, and be very diligent not engage with him when this occurs. Cody will thrive in a home where he has a job, and with someone who will implement force free training with expectations and patience. In return, Cody will be your loyal and loving companion that is so very eager to share any adventure you can think of.  Cody  requires an active home with high energy dog experience. Because he lived outside, he did not experience daily life with his human before coming to us. He loves people, but struggles to contain his actions and emotions when things get too excitable. Someone who understands that Cody needs to stay engaged without adding too much excitement is important.

We are looking for applications with a yard, no cats, no children under 14. Dogs are negotiable demanding on the housing situation. Cody will highly benefit from doggy friends. 

Winnie - Adoption Pending

Age: Approx 5 or 6 Years
Location: Calgary
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Female
Weight: 49lbs
Energy: Low-Medium
Health Notes: Spay is scheduled for beginning of May and will be covered by us. Winnie came to us heartworm positive. She has started her treatment. It was caught early and it is easily treatable.
Cats: Not Tested
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, but does get startled easy so experienced or older kids prefered.
Adoption fee: $475


Winnie is a beautiful girl with an even more beautiful soul. She’s sweet, gentle, calm and shy. Her favourite past times include hanging outside in the sun, watching the squirrels, getting brushed and going on walks. Winnie is housetrained, walks well on a leash and sleeps soundly on her dog bed every night. She does not enjoy her kennel, but she’s so well behaved a kennel is not needed.

Winnie is perfect! But she hasn’t had it easy. We can see that she’s had many litters in her past and when she arrived in our care she was in heat and very uncomfortable. Rosier Days has made a promise to Winnie, to get her feeling great and to find her the perfect forever home.

Due to her shy disposition Winnie would prefer to find an owner who is patient and calm. Someone who will help her build confidence in new situations. She tends to warm up to a female presence more quickly than men, however with a calm and patient male she is making great strides in this area. Winnie is great with humans, dogs, calm kids and has not been tested with cats (though we think she would be fine). A high energy household would not be suited to her as she can get startled easily. She does love her morning and afternoon walks and really comes to life when she is on the move outside. She needs a companion with a similar need to get out for some exercise, fresh air and sunshine.

The application must be submitted and reviewed before a meet and greet will be arranged.


Please be patient in waiting to hear back from us as the dogs care is our priority and all of our volunteers work as well as run the rescue in their spare time.


Age: Approx 3 Years

I’m Elmo!  I’ve been told I’m 50% weenie and 50% grasshopper because I can jump pretty high for a little guy. 


I live for snuggles and cuddles on the couch with my foster “paw”rents.  My favourite toys are my unstuffed raccoon toy and my treat ball stuffed with my special soft treats.  I love dark spaces and play time.  I love my crate.  It keeps me safe from the vacuum cleaner and I get all my meals in it.  I will happily sleep in it all night long after a pre-bedtime cuddle.


I looooooove belly rubs and I enjoy being brushed (except for my tail sometimes—it gets a little tangly). My fur is quite soft and fine and I don’t shed very much.


When I first arrived at my foster home, I was in pain and had a weepy scab on my face.  The vet figured out that I had a broken jaw and an infection that were causing my problems.  I had surgery to remove a few teeth and deal with my infection and they made me take a bunch of gross medicines afterwards (the oral syringe is my nemesis). 


Unfortunately, after my surgery I couldn’t have toys or treats at all for a few weeks and that sucked big time, because I really like both.    My foster “paw”rents had to keep a pretty close eye on me afterwards because I didn’t tolerate having my muzzle banded.  Nobody wanted me to hurt myself and I wasn’t allowed to pickup stuff with my mouth or bite/chew things.  As a result, I’m used to having someone home during the day and need to work on spending more time alone.  I bark for a few minutes when crated during the day but calm down fairly quickly and then sleep in my crate until my foster “paw”rents get home.


I’m feeling a lot better now, but I have to go back again this summer for another check-up and to have some more teeth removed.  RDDR will pay for my next surgery, but I’m looking for a fur-ever family that will work with them to facilitate the care that I need and help me with my recovery.


I really like going for walks but I am still working on my walking skills and being less reactive outside.  I do my best to alert my foster “paw”rents to any potential “stranger danger” and I tend to err on the side of caution—you can never be too careful.  When I first got here, I was scared of everything, even my own reflection, (who knows how those mirror things work anyway?!), but I’m less fearful now.  I still bark at the occasional person who gets too close, and I do bark and lunge at other dogs I see outside. 


My foster “paw”rents have been working with me on my reactivity, but they live in an apartment in busy area with lots people and dogs and construction going on.  I’d ideally like a neighbourhood that’s a little less busy for my walks.  I’m working on getting to know one of my neighbour dogs little by little, as well as his human, but I like my space and still tend to bark when I see dogs or people I don’t know.


If you think you might be my “fur”ever family, please apply to RDDR for me.  I’m a sweet guy with lots of love to give.

Toby- Adoption Pending

Age: 1 Year
Location: Victoria
Breed: Kelpie Mix?
Sex: Neutered Male
Weight: 30 lbs
Energy: High
Health Notes: None noted
Cats: Not Tested
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Not tested, but due to his herding breed and shyness with new people, older kids only.
Adoption fee: $475


This is Toby - stealer of all hearts. A few weeks ago we shared a little bit about this special boy as he has really imprinted himself on our team. Toby is such a wonderful boy. He is amazingly smart and ready to please. Intensely focused, loving, goofy, and all kinds of amazing. Toby is crate trained, and walks really well on leash. Toby is an active young dog that is looking for an active family of his own that will continue his obedience training, enroll him in fun classes, and go on endless adventures. He truly is the best friend a person looks for. He is looking for forever people that will not slack on his training as he has a brain that needs mental stimulation in order to be the best boy. Toby LOVES dogs (although can be nervous upon initial meeting) and will need continued proper socialization to ensure he acts appropriately in play with them. He can be a bit shy of new people but comes around very quickly with females (males may take a bit longer, but he does come around!) He is very food motivated and loves to do crazy zoomies in the yard. We have fallen in love with Toby and look forward to seeing all his fun adventures with his new human(s). Could this be with you!? This boy will not be listed for long so ensure you get your application in soon if you are interested in him.
