The dogs behind the Dog

The Working Dog Saloon is an idea that came to be by a group of special canines. Meet the team behind our team:


Stuart
Stuart

Stuart was born in the SPCA. Stuarts mother, along with 157 other dogs, were seized from her owner for neglect and abuse. All these dogs lived their lives out on chains and because of this, some had to be euthanized for extreme health reasons or severe fear aggression. Stuarts mom was 1 of 19 females that were pregnant and gave birth in the shelter under stress. Stuart now enjoys her life as a celebrity at the Working Dog Saloon. Keep your eye out for her regular cameo appearances.


Ting
Ting

Tings mother was found pregnant and abandoned. She was wandering the streets without proper food and water and was looking for somewhere to give birth to her puppies. She was lucky to find a group of rescuers called “Friends of Abandoned Pets” who took her in, helped her give birth and found loving homes for all her puppies.


Josie
Josie

Josie spent the first months of her life living in a puppy mill. She was kept in a small cage with many other dogs and had to fight for any food or water that came her way. She was never given any exercise or human companionship and ended up with an eye injury. This went untreated until she lost sight in the infected eye. She was dumped by the puppy mill owners on the side of the road, thrown away because she no longer had value.


Woody
Woody

Woody was picked up in Montreal by Animal Control. He waited 7 days for his owner to come and save him, but no one came. He was scheduled to be put down to make room for more abandoned and stray dogs. Woody was fortunate, a Malamute rescue (AMHL) stepped up and saved him from being put to sleep. Woody takes his job as the Working Dog Saloon mascot very seriously - often hanging out in front of the Working Dog awaiting belly rubs.


Mona
Mona

Mona was found by the city of Toronto Animal Control as a stray. She spent 3 weeks waiting for the right family to adopt her. She was very underweight, shy, and nervous of loud voices. She now enjoys spending her days sledding, going for walks, cuddling, and playing with her siblings.


Katie
Katie

Katie was brought into the SPCA by her first set of owners at only 3 months of age. She was immediately adopted to a couple who did not research the breed and found herself right back in a shelter. Katie has known 3 families in her short life. Training, education, and consistency is essential to a healthy, happy, furry companion.



These six rescues now make up a happy and healthy pack that inspire us to make the Working Dog Saloon the best that it can be.

The Working Dog is active in our community, doing our best to be a good neighbor and responsible corporate citizen. We serve fresh food that is sourced locally whenever possible to provide the most fresh, healthy, and flavourful food to our clients, while protecting the environment, supporting Ontario farmers, and encouraging sustainable and responsible agricultural practices. We regularly support animal rescue and humane education organizations through major events like our annual Walk 4 Rescue and Picture Your Pet With Santa, and with proceeds from the sale of every pint of our own Dogger Lager and every glass or bottle of our Red Doghouse and White Doghouse wines.

The Working Dog Saloon is a special place, a perfect spot to hang your hat - or your harness!
