Jaxx is a loveable 1.5 year old male border collie/ potcake mix. He is 70 lbs, tri-coloured and recently neutered. Jaxx is a real sweetheart with his humans. He loves giving kisses, going for walks and playing tug of war and fetch with his ball or toys. He also loves to relax with his humans on the couch or on the floor beside them. He loves his belly rubbed and having cuddle time. He is house trained and is usually food motivated. He has learned commands such as sit, down, stay, no, leave it, around, and up, but sometimes needs reminders. Jaxx picks up scents easily and loves to smell everything outside. When going for walks, he is still learning to heel. He has a tendency to pull when he catches a scent he wants to follow. He is dog reactive, so will bark and lunge when he sees other dogs approaching. He is showing progress in walking with a gentle lead. He is adored by his humans, unfortunately he has shown dog aggression with the other pets in his house and needs to be rehomed. 

Jaxx would thrive in a quiet house with a backyard with high fences since he can jump fairly high when he gets excited. He loves to herd, so will keep birds, bunnies and squirrels off your property. He needs to be the only pet in the home with an experienced dog owner, He is great with kids older than 12 or will be just as happy in a home without children. 

Jaxx does get nervous when meeting new people, so may bark at first. He can easily be won over with treats and a game of fetch with one of his toys. If you are looking for an amazing companion to share your life with, Jaxx may be the dog for you. He is super chill in his home and loves following his people everywhere. He is an endearing dog who will capture your heart and entertain you every day. 

Jaxx is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue.  The adoption donation is $450 per dog. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

We are posting Beau in an attempt to help his current owner who he is still with find an appropriate home:

Hello! This is Beau, and Beau is a miniature Bull Terrier who we adopted from a couple in Sudbury, Ontario end of August, 2022. Beau was diagnosed with Idiopathic lymphoplasmacytic rhinitis (LPR) is a common inflammatory disorder of the nasal cavity in dogs due to unknown etiology. It is characterised by non-specific clinical signs, including nose bleeds. This is being treated with Prednisone (steroid) until further diagnostics.   

My husband, Sean and I, have two other dogs in the house, Pippa, a 9-year-old American Bull dog crossed with Australian Shepherd and Monty, a 1.5-year-old English Bull Terrier. The dogs got along fine in the beginning, but once Monty and Beau got to know each other more, the more they did not get along. Beau, Monty and Pippa have started getting into fights, to where I cannot have them together any longer.  

I have had Beau in my care, being crated in our spare bedroom separate from our other dogs. I will separately take Beau out while Monty is crated. Beau goes for long walks in the morning and at night. I will take him out during the day for a bathroom break, but that’s as far as it can go, as the dogs cannot interact any longer. Beau needs to go to a home with no other dogs or children. He is a very good boy when it is just him, myself and my husband alone. He deserves a great home. Please let me know if you can help us.  

If interested in this dog please let us know and we will put you in touch with the owner. 


Jagger is an 8 year old border collie / husky cross. He is 60 lbs of short creamy white fur with a striking dappled red nose & ears. He has a truly goofy grin when he’s happy and his expressive toffee brown eyes make it hard to stay mad at him for any length of time. He is house trained and absolutely adores his crate. He often puts himself to bed in it if if his people are up past his bedtime. He also likes to nap on the couch.

Jagger loves playtime, his absolute favourite toy is his tug rope. He’ll amaze you at how fast plush toys can be taken apart. However, he is very gentle with his rubber toys. He tends to get bored, so rotating his toys is a good idea. Outside he plays with a large rubber ball but has the typical husky attitude after a few throws of “if you lose it again it’s not my problem “. Jagger has never truly played with a Frisbee, but given the space would astound you at how high he can jump. He is very smart and learns quickly. He’s food motivated and knows sit, down, wait, look at me, with me, turn, and of course high five.

Jagger leans more towards his husky side. He walks well on his gentle leader but still has a tendency to pull when distracted. He likes nothing better than to see new places, he occasionally gets car sick but this is solved by timing his meals accordingly. Jagger is fascinated by water but doesn’t want to be in it, he will avoid puddles at all costs and take you home if it starts to rain on a walk. He loves being around it and will bring you right to the water’s edge, just don’t try to make him go in.

Jagger is dog reactive, and will bark and lunge when he sees other dogs. This is behaviour can lead to him redirecting on whoever is near. When unable to escape he does have some leash aggression, interpreting any movement towards him as a threat. He has been making great strides towards correcting this, and rarely reacts to neighboring dogs. He would benefit greatly from a course specializing in reactive dogs.

Jagger is an absolute sweetheart. He’s a cuddly fun boy that would do well in a dog savvy home with a well fenced yard with people willing to provide the training that the high energy and northern breeds need. He needs a quiet adult home with no other pets and experienced owners.

Jagger is available for adoption together through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $400. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.
