Bio


Hiya! I'm Maverick. I'm going to be 5 on November 30th. I am a typical high energy Husky. I love lots of stuff going on to watch or be part of, and the more hands to give me attention, the happier I am. I love all people, little and big and don't have an aggressive bone in my body. I think everyone wants to be my friend and love me. Sometimes, this is a problem with other dogs because I don't quite understand when they're trying to tell me they're afraid of me or don't want to play.

I know my commands like sit, lie down, leave it, drop it and stay but sometimes I pretend I didn't hear you the first time and you have to repeat it. I also will shake a paw and give you a high five if you ask me to. I used to walk well on a leash but I need a manners refresher and some confidence with this as I get a little over excited. I love to run but I can't ever be an off leash dog, I'm a runner and think it's a great game. I don't have any recall.

I have all my house manners and have been fully potty trained since I was 9 weeks old. I don't counter surf or try to open garbage cans and I'm not destructive at all. It's a good thing because I can't be crated, ever. I get really nervous and hurt myself if you lock me in a crate. I also have some anxiety, separation and in general and can't be left alone for long periods of time, I'd be really happy with someone who is home a lot and who could help me gain some confidence. That said, I'm not afraid of fireworks or thunderstorms when I'm in the house, I pretty much sleep right through them but please don't take me outside in them, I may not do so well.

I love to play outside in a fully fenced yard, I like to chase you and be chased. I'm not very good at fetch but sometimes I try really hard, mostly I end up looking goofy as I can't catch very well. I do love it when you slide my cookies across the floor and I have to chase them to eat them, it appeals to my prey drive, which is pretty high. Rabbits, squirrels and cats that wander into my area are fair game and I will go after them. It's probably best if you don't have small animals in your home. I am not food, treat or toy aggressive, I'm generally pretty passive with these things and I've always been free fed. I eat when I'm hungry which is usually never when you think I should eat, and I don't over eat.

I am up to date on my rabies vaccination and I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract if not done before my adoption. My adopter will be provided with a microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption as I am not yet microchipped. I am also adopted on a strict no-vaccination contract as I have had a SEVERE reaction to vaccination that caused internal bleeding. I can live a fully normal life - I just won’t be able to board anywhere that requires vaccinations. I come with a lifetime support offering free boarding at the rescue kennel in Tweed, ON if I ever need to be boarded anywhere though!

Fang

Introduction


Name: Fang
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Yes - see bio
Kids: Not recommended

Bio


Hi, I’m (white) Fang and I’m looking for a VERY active home! If you’re very active or if you have a small mushing team with an empty spot - look no further! I would love to fill that spot. I have tonnes and tonnes of energy to burn!

As a result of having so much energy, I pull like mad on the leash, and I come across as aggressive to dogs an humans we pass. I bark, pull, whine and lunge at them because I am so over-excited to say hello. Once I am allowed to say hello, I’m absolutely fine and love the affection! My foster people are working on training this out of me, but it’s been 5 weeks and I’m still doing it. In fact, I need obedience training in every aspect as I have never had any manners training in my 2 previous homes before I entered foster care. Since being in foster, I have learned to sit, lay down, and give paw. I am gentle at taking treats, so further training should be fun.

Due to my high energy and general lack of manners, I am not recommended around children. I have cats in my foster home and for the most part, I just ignore them. I respect the other dog’s cues to leave them alone when they’ve had enough. I do play rough and need guidance on learning when enough is enough and what is too rough. I am house trained, but I do mark indoors so I am currently wearing a belly band. I am working on my crate training and it takes me about 30 minutes to stop scratching at the door and screaming to settle down. You see, I don’t like to be alone. More exercise may or may not help in this department.

Now that I am finally eating food and gaining weight, I am able to get more exercise now. I was skin and bones when I arrived and I am a VERY picky eater. I am still picky, but I have no problem begging for human food, or even helping myself off the counter and out of the garbage bin, even right in front of my foster people. I do not have any guarding issues however.

I am not yet neutered as I was far too skinny on intake and I need time to settle into my new home as well. I do have an appointment booked in Kitchener on November 25 for this to be done as well as my rabies vaccination and my microchip. I can be adopted before this is done however, and a rebate can be provided to my adopter if choosing to use a different vet clinic. I come with a microchip to have inserted upon my adoption.

Bear

 Introduction


Name: Bear
Breed: Alaskan Malamute mix
Sex: Male
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes, selective - females only
Kids: Yes

Hi, I’m Bear and I’m here looking for a cat-free forever home. Breed experience is preferred as malamutes aren’t the easiest of dogs and I have escape tendencies. My current owners found me about 1.5 years ago and have observed the very escape tendencies that landed me with them in the first place. I will need appropriate confinement for the breed and a savvy owner to keep me safe. I would do best with a big fenced yard to burn off energy and keep me busy.

I am used to being crated at night and prefer the wire type of crate. I am house trained, but I do mark. This may or may not improve after my neuter, but training will help.

In typical malamute fashion, I love my people and affection. Belly rubs and walks are my favorite. I like to be brushed (but not my tail). I am not a fan of people wearing hoodies, so please make note of this in the cool evenings and on walks. Also in typical fashion, I am not good with other male dogs. I am good with select female dogs, so a meet and greet will be required to ensure we can get along.

I do know some commands like shake a paw, sit pretty, sit, and down and I will howl or whine if I want something (like a treat, outside, walk, etc.). I’m fun to be around, but I am very prey driven for cats and small prey outside. Please no small dogs.

I am up to date on my rabies vaccination and my adopter will be provided with a microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption, or, if I am adopted locally, I will be microchipped prior to adoption. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed within 3 months of adoption to give me time to settle in.

Sweety

Introduction


Name: Sweety
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 1 year
Cats: With caution
Dogs: Yes
Kids: See bio

Hi, my name is Sweety and I was born on July 18 2018. I am an affectionate girl once I get to know you, but I do have many quirks. Please keep reading if you have the time and patience to work with me.

I was raised in a home with several of my siblings and my parents, but I didn’t get much in the way of socialization outside of home. I FLOURISH with other dogs around, especially ones with a similar personality to me, or hyper, playful dogs. Requirement number one for my forever home is at least one existing dog in the home. If you do not have another dog, I am not the dog for you.

I was raised with cats, but it has been a couple of months since I have seen one. Caution would need to be used when introducing me to new cats, but it should be fine. I was raised with children (and fostered with them before my last adoption) as well, HOWEVER, sudden sounds or touching makes me scream, turn and stare - sometimes with a threatening demeanor. I should probably not be with really young kids until I am more socialized and desensitized. I am showing escape artist tendencies, so a 6 ft fence is required.

I am so dependent and in need of human affection, that I have developed a case of separation anxiety. As a result, I am not suitable for attached housing if you are away for work. If you work from home and are almost always home, that is ideal! I don’t like going in the crate yet, but you can gentle make me do it and I will go. I must be crated in your bedroom at night though or else you will need A LOT of coffee in the morning! I just need to know you are still there so will let out a few barks, but I stop when you tell me as long as I am crated in your room. I do well on the bed as well, but this should only be a reward for good crate behaviour. I am virtually house trained, but will go indoors if you miss my signal.

I am up to date on my dhpp and rabies vaccinations and microchipped, but I am not yet spayed. I was just in heat in July, so timing isn’t right. Early October is when it would have been ideal to do it, however I have just been returned to rescue and with my insecurities and not being settled, now is not the time. March should be a good time for me though. That gives me lots of time to get adjusted, settled, and socialized.

Ash

Introduction


Name: Ash
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 6 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Bio


Hi, I’m Ash and I’m the perfect addition to almost any active home. Read below for more about me! I was picked up as a stray, but I am an absolute gem in the home. They estimate my age to be 6 to 7, but I have the same amount of energy as my younger foster brother. I am full of beans, but I play very well and politely. I do like to jump the fence, and wander the neighbours home, so a 6 foot fence, minimally, is a must if my yard is fenced. I am ok on a tether if my yard is not fenced. With my energy level, I may not be suitable for attached housing unless I have very active owners to keep me worn out!

I am currently being fostered with a 2 year old male dog, and two small humans. I am very well mannered around kids, but I will try to be sneaky and grab a snack from their hands when they aren’t looking. I will also eat muffins off the counter, and rummage through garbage when left alone, so it would be best if your garbage can was well hidden, and food out of reach. Other than that, my foster mom thinks I am just perfect. I am a quiet dog, who can be left alone without barking. I’ve done so well, that my foster mom hasn’t tried me with a crate. I also love to snuggle in bed, or beside my humans on the floor. I am fully potty trained, and I don’t mess in the house.

I love to run in the yard, and explore. I am working on my leash skills, and I would be a great running buddy. I am working on my sit, stay, etc and doing well. I am highly treat motivated, so continued training should be easy. I have not been around cats in my foster home, so am not recommended with cats given my unknown history and breed.

I am up to date on my dappv and bordatella vaccinations and I am microchipped. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed once I am settled in and comfortable.

Winston and Skye

Introduction


Names: Winston and Skye
Breed: Alaskan Husky mix and Siberian Husky
Sex: Male and Female
Age: 7 years and 8.5 years
Cats: With caution
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Not tested

Bio

Hi there, we are Winston and Skye and we are a package deal! 2-for-1. We met when Winston was just a puppy, and Skye was a scared rescue at his house. He climbed in Skye’s crate to say 'it's ok' and he fell asleep curled up on her back. Winston and Skye’s personalities are the complete opposite, so read below.

Winston is your typical high-energy husky boy. He’s super smart and mischievous as well as energetic and talkative. He’s outgoing and affectionate - He will follow you everywhere around the house. If he isn't with you, you may find him napping in his crate. If asked he will sing along and if you have a treat he will not let you out of his sight..Winston is crate trained and will let you know when he needs to go out, Skye is crate trained but the potty needs more attention in that department.

Skye is much calmer and timid and will run to her safe zone if unsure or frightened. She’s much lower energy and chill. She’s not talkative, but does have a big terrier type bark! She’s more reserved and takes time to warm up to her new surroundings. You will need to be patient with her and let her adjust at her own pace. Skye is shy given time and space she will be your closest companion.

We would be best suited to a home with a heterosexual couple since Winston prefers men and Skye prefers women, but we need to be together. We currently live in an apartment, but we would LOVE to have our own yard to run around and play in like we do at the rescue kennel where we have been boarding clients for 5 years. We love it there!

We are spayed and neutered and we will come with registered microchips to have inserted by your veterinarian upon our adoption as we are not yet microchipped.

Chief

Introduction

 

Name: Chief
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: No
Kids: Yes, older

Bio


 Hey, it’s me, Chief, and I’m still here patiently waiting for a forever home! I first came into the rescue in June 2016 and was returned in February 2019 due to life changes. I was adopted again, and returned due to separation anxiety a month later. I’ve had absolutely NO interest since then. So, let me explain myself one more time and hope that someone falls in love with me!

I’m a husky mix originally from Gatineau, QC. Right from the start, I have not done well living with other dogs or playing with other dogs at the dog park. I’m just not a fan. I do fine on walks in the city past other dogs though, so please don’t let my dislike of other dogs turn you away! I do pull on the leash, so will need more training in this department. I sit and wait for my dinner to be served and I sit before crossing the street.

I was cat-tested back in 2016 when I was a puppy, and it didn’t go well then, so let’s not even try that over 3 years later. I am not good with children under 13 and I am not sure why I feel the need to lunge at them. Kids over 13 I am generally ok with, but some people just rub me the wrong way and I don’t like them. I don’t like dominant people. I like the kind of people that will share their milkshake with me though!

I am house trained and I am crate trained for plastic crates only. I MUST be crated in your absence or I will stress myself to the point of destroying your home. I am ok alone for up to 6 hours in the crate without issue. I can make it to 8 hours, but there will be drool and some barking. You see, when I have to go to the bathroom, I start to panic since I REALLY do not want to make a mistake. If you work long hours, a private dog-walker midday would really make me more comfortable. Do not leave me loose, ever. I am also afraid of thunderstorms.

I’m really not a bad dog, so why have I been waiting so long for a forever home? I also LOVE running next to the ATV and have experience in a harness on a small recreational team. I like to work and have a job, but it’s not necessary.

I am up to date on my rabies and dhpp vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

Milo

***DEADLINE OCTOBER 27***


Introduction


Name: Milo
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 5.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective
Kids: Yes, older

Bio

Hey, I’m Milo and I’m approximately 5.5 years old. I first met the nice people here at SMART when they helped move me from Ontario to Alberta to be with my hu-dad a couple of years ago when we moved provinces! Unfortunately, and regrettably, I am looking for my third and final, forever home.

I was adopted by my current human when I was 1.5 years old. Before being with my current owner, I was around children, but I haven’t been around any in the last 4 years. I would need a refresher on being around children, so for now, older children are the best for me.I am also a large husky mix and I will guard high-value resources, but not my food. I also jump up to say hello. I haven’t been around cats ever, so I will not be adopted to a home with cats. As far as my interactions with other dogs, I am very selective. I would likely be best in a home without other dogs, but if I am going to a home with other dogs, meet and greets will be required, so I would need to stay local for logistical reasons.

I am probably best staying local anyway since I am not crate trained, so flying me really isn’t a viable option. I am house trained though and non-destructive. I will require a 6ft high fence minimally as I am apt to climb/jump fences to escape, but I don’t dig to escape. I would also be ok in an apartment where there is no fence to escape and I am kept on a leash at all times. Ideally, I would have an experienced owner to help work on my stubbornness when it comes to training. I would also like a quiet home without a tonne of people living in the home.

I am not a fan of the vet at all and need to be muzzled when I visit the vet. A good, patient, and experienced vet is really important for me. Keeping vet visits positive and to a minimum will help with this as well. Keep me used to the muzzle at home in a positive way as well to minimize anticipation of muzzling leading to the vet.

I am up to date on all of my vaccinations. I am not yet neutered and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed once I am more settled in. My adopter will be provided with a registered microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption as I am not yet microchipped.

Mishmish

Introduction


Name: Mishmish
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Male
Age: 5.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective
Kids: No

Bio


Hi, my name is Mishmish and I am a purebred Alaskan Malamute born on January 5, 2014 in Alaska! I’ve been with one owner my entire life since I was purchased as a puppy. Unfortunately, I have been surrendered due to life circumstances and am searching for a malamute experienced forever home. I need a special home, so please read carefully.

If you have never owned a malamute before, I am definitely not the dog for you! I weigh 115 pounds, but I look bigger - It’s all the fluff! I am not an escape artist, but with my size, I could accidentally get over a 4ft fence. I need a 5ft high fence minimally, and I would love if there was a pool in my yard for me to go in! I love water, and good luck asking me to get out of it! If you don’t have a pool, a pond, lake or deep puddle nearby on walks will do the job nicely so be prepared to be pulled in with me. I do know my basic obedience commands… when I want to. I pull on the leash though, so I will need work on this.

I am a typical stubborn malamute, but I take it a step further. I do not tolerate being forced to do something I do not want to do. I will growl and bare teeth, and escalate to air snapping or chewing on the leash. I do have a bite history as well that required stitches. You can negotiate a trade or maybe a compromise with me, but you cannot force me to do something I don’t want to do.

I am not crate trained, and good luck with that, but I am house trained. I am not destructive or loud when alone and will just lay down and wait for you to get home for my walk. I like to have an hour walk a day, plus yard play time. I am routine-oriented. In typical Northern-breed fashion, I will play fetch 3 times, and then you can go get it! I enjoy affection and playtime on my terms, so if you understand the malamute way ,we can get along nicely!

I’m not good with cats, kids, or most dogs, so ideally I would be a pet-free home with just my male human master. I may be ok with a strong, authoritative female human as well. I am a stubborn free-spirit and a cuddle-bug when I want to be.

I am neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all of my vaccinations.

Jax

Introduction


Name: Jax
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 4.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective – meet and greet required
Kids: No


Bio

Hi there, the name is Jax, but my foster people call me Jackie.  I’m a neutered, microchipped, and fully vaccinated male Siberian Husky looking for a quiet home without children or cats.  I am a calmer boy, and not your typical high-energy young adult husky. I need an experienced adopter. 


With that said, I am a dominant player, so my best matched friends are submissive and lower energy dogs. A meet and greet is required to ensure we get along before I go home with you. I’m not a fan of the dog park - there are too many dogs and I get over-stimulated. I prefer small play groups, or just to stay home with my family and play fetch! I was surrendered to the shelter with my bonded sister, but the shelter separated us. With that said, I’ve been ok separated and would be ok as an only dog as well. 


I walk well on leash, but there are certain dogs passing me on the street that make me want to go after them and start pulling. I’m very obedient! I sit before I eat, go through a door, get my treats, etc. I also know how to stay and down to a certain degree, I’m very loyal to my people, and I have no desire to break out of my backyard by either digging, jumping, or climbing once I am bonded to you. I’m not a fan of crating, but I am fully house trained and awesome loose in the house. I will counter surf though. 


I do have minor resource guarding if you try to take my food away from me while I’m eating it, or take my ball away when I’m not finished with it or ready for you to toss it. I love my ball! I’m cuddly and affectionate, however it needs to be noted that I don’t like to be smothered or have my legs pet. I’m my own guy, and like to do things on my terms. I need forever people who will respect me for who I am. Due to my sensitivities and guarding, I cannot be in a home with children. 


I have a shady past, but my foster people have done A LOT of work with me and I am ready to search for my forever home! I am changed for the better, but it should be noticed that I do not like to be stared in the face and I may exhibit handling sensitivities until I am comfortable with you and trust you.

Breed: Alaskan Malamute x Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 2.5 years
Cats: With caution
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, older

Bio

Hello everyone,
My name is Kira, I am a spayed female husky mix who turns 3 in December. I am a very sweet energetic pup who loves to play and cuddle.

I have recently been taken in by a new foster family until I can find a good home. I was born with an eye condition which causes my eye lashes to grow inside my eyelids. This is why my previous family had to give me up. This condition made it feel as if I had something stuck in my eyes constantly and I could not get it out. My new foster family has gotten me the surgery to correct this eye condition, called entropian, and I am now a very happy dog. However please note that there is a possibility that this condition may come back in the future and I would need another surgery to correct it.

I would love a big yard to play and run in. I am house trained and crate trained. I know basic commands like sit, down, paw and come. I would benefit from more training to unlock all my potential. I also love jumping so would benefit from a class such as agility. I have stayed with a cat, but I should not be left alone with a cat unsupervised because I want to be friends and play with them and the cats don’t seem to like that so much. I am big and could knock over a small child accidentally so I would prefer older children. I have become shy to new humans so you need to give me time to open up to you. Once I do, I wont leave your side - unless there's a squirrel in need of my attention!

I would love to spend time playing with an active family or companion. Once I get to know you I will be loyal and give you all the hugs and kisses in the world.Will you be my forever family? I’m cuddly, kissy, loyal, playful, and a gentle soul who loves to be on the couch. What’s not to love? I likely won’t last long, so don’t delay and get your application in today! Pre-approved applicants only need to send an email if they wish for their file to be shared with my owner for consideration.

I am spayed and up to date on all of my vaccinations. My adopters will be provided with a registered microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption as I am not yet microchipped.

Sadie

Introduction


 

Name: Sadie
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 7 months
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Bio


Hi there, I’m Sadie and I’m essentially perfect if I do say so myself, especially for a husky puppy! I just turned 7 months old and was born on March 1 2019. I’m just a baby, so you can shape me into anything!

I’m very affectionate and will follow you everywhere in the house. In fact, I just want to be in the house with you, or on a leash going on an adventure. Or just for a car ride. I travel wonderfully in the car - you might forget I am there! I walk ahead of you, but I don’t pull, and I am easily trainable to walk properly on the leash beside you. I will need a fence that is at least 6ft high if I am in a house with one and left outside alone for any period of time. I am showing the desire to climb fences here.

I was raised in a home with 7 children, another dog, and a cat. I do have a mild case of separation anxiety and will need another dog in my home. Ideally, my new fur-sibling is playful in nature, but also passive and mellow. Super energetic, pushy, and overbearing dogs I will snap at and cower in fear from. I do need to build a bit of confidence, but am doing very well in that department. I am doing well with a few dogs at a time, but a large pack environment like a dog park is much too scary for me.

See here’s the thing. Being raised with tonnes of kids in my home coupled with being in a natural fear period, has made me have a bit of fear and excitement peeing. I am getting a lot better in both departments in the short amount of time I have been in my foster home, but please be prepared to be cleaning up messes for the first few weeks until I am adjusted and comfortable. I don’t mean to, I just can’t help myself. Going through a few heat cycles before my spay should help strengthen my urethral sphincter as well. I am otherwise house trained and I am crate trained. I don’t make a peep in the crate and I can make it all night long. I do need to go straight outside without any hesitation first thing in the morning though.

I am up to date on my rabies, dappv, and bordatella vaccinations and I am microchipped. I am not old enough to be spayed and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay agreement to be completed between 1 and 2 years of age, 2 months after a heat cycle ends.
