BRQ puppies ready for adoption 

Born December 9th, 2012, 4 female puppies made their way into the world and were greeted by Joanne, Grace, Anik and Crystal. The birth of these little miracles was bittersweet as we were so happy that Momma and her pups were all strong and healthy but there were now 4 more dogs to have to find homes for! The puppies are now 10 weeks old and will be ready for adoption on February 23rd. If you live in the Montreal area, are home more often than not and have a securely fenced in back yard, one of these little angels could be yours!! Please apply

BRQ adoptee Chance needs your help and support. 


BRQ adoptee Chance needs your help and support.

Chance and Sassy were surrendered to BRQ in the summer of 2007. They were used for breeding and were starving and neglected when they were brought to their foster home. With care and love, they flourished and were adopted. Since Sassy and Chance were so bonded, one of our criteria was that we wanted them to be adopted together – a big commitment for any family. 

Lucky for these two the perfect family found them! It was a long drive to be joined with their new family in Windsor, Ontario but on a snowy day in November 2007 they arrived at their new home. Their new family consisted of a then 8 year old boy (now 13) and his mom, and they instantly fell in love with Sassy and Chance. 

Recently with tough economic times, bad luck hit, and there were layoffs at the GM plant in Windsor. Sadly, Sassy and Chance's mom was one of the unlucky ones to lose her job. Retraining and job hunting has been difficult, but the family is surviving, putting one foot in front of the other and faith and determination have kept them going. 

In a second round of bad luck, our sweet Chance has been diagnosed with diabetes. He is not doing well and needs hospitalization. BRQ would like to help with his vet bills since his family is already struggling. His family is heartbroken at this turn of events. They have already spent $700 for the initial visit and they are straining to keep up. If you can find it in your heart to help at this particular time it would be very much appreciated - any amount would help.

Darling, lovely perfect Carson is in need of a foster home of a forever family!  

Carson is looking for a temporary foster home or a permanent family. Meet our most amazing and darling 3 yr old Carson! One week ago, BRQ rescued Carson from a reserve in Northern Quebec where he was living outdoors 24/7. Since his owner had abandoned him, a neighbour started to feed him but was unable to keep him indoors due to her landlord's objections. The poor guy has been outdoors all winter - can you imagine a boxer outdoors??!! His coat is the thickest we have ever seen on a boxer. He is covered in scabs from being attacked by other dogs. Despite all that he is SO friendly and loving. He gets along with dogs of all kinds (he was transported to us in a car with 3 others dogs of all sizes/sexes). The neighbour who was feeding him told us that he was always playing with the children on the street. He does not jump up, does not pull on leash, knows to sit and give the paw, has been left loose while his foster parents go out with no trouble, he is housetrained, gentle with great manners......and one last thing.....he is blind. Our vet thinks he can see shadows/light but that is it. I know this might cause some families to not consider him for adoption but he is really an amazing guy and better adjusted than most seeing rescue dogs that we get in. Maybe being blind is the reason he is so well adjusted....We are not sure if he was born this way or not. His eyes are not infected or painful or anything like that. He had his check up and deworming last week, and is being neutered today.
