Miko

Introduction


Name: Miko
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 2 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes, selective - females only
Kids: No

Bio


Hi, I’m Miko and I’m here looking for a very specific type of home, so please read carefully. I’m searching for a home where I am the only pet and there are no children. I’m searching for an experienced owner who can help me work through some behaviours as well. I’d also be best in a home where someone is home almost all of the time.

I need a job. I’m very intelligent and need to be kept busy. I know my obedience commands and walk well on a leash. I’m loving and affectionate. I do have separation anxiety and resource guarding, and I have bitten due to the resource guarding. I cannot be crated in a wire crate as I will hurt myself in it, but I can be crated for short periods of time in a sturdy crate. I do best with a bone or kong to keep me busy in the crate in your absence. I’d still prefer someone who is home the vast majority of the time though, and can’t be left loose when you’re not home. So really, you can crate me for short errands in town, or appointments, but please hurry home! I am house trained.

I’m specifically looking for a child and dog-free home because having them around makes me very anxious and on edge. When not around others, I am a wonderful companion! I have circled the baby in my home with hackles raised, so most certainly no children for me, nor visiting my home.

My owners are trying to do the right thing by me and re-home me to a home in which I would flourish and be more happy and everyone would be safe. It is strongly advised to hire a private dog trainer that will come to my home and help you and I work through my quirks. My situation is urgent, and I need an animal and child free foster or adopter immediately before my reactivity escalates and a bad situation arises. If you think you can offer me a home, even temporarily, please apply now!

I’m up to date on my rabies vaccine and my adopters will be provided with a microchip to have inserted by a veterinarian upon my adoption. I am intact, and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract. My neuter shall be completed after I am more settled and my training is well underway.

Harley

Introduction

 

Name: Harley
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 9 months
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, older

Bio


Hey there, my name is Harley! I am a beautiful neutered husky mix, all my vaccinations are up to date as well as I am tattooed and microchipped. I am a fluffy bundle of joy! I am however a typical husky and am FULL of energy. I am looking for a home with a big yard or acarage and someone who will spend time lots of time with me!

I am a very smart dog and I pick up things pretty fast but also love to talk back when I am told to go to my crate. I am not crated trained as I howl and howl for hours on end when I am in there so I will need to work on my crate skills if you intend to crate me however I do like spend time in there with the doors open.

I love to go for long walks, however I am still a puppy so my leash skills still need some work. When other dogs pass I really pull because I want to say hi. I know my basic commands (sit, wait, down, up, touch) and have passed basic puppy classes. I do well with other dogs, and love to play with them. I currently live with another husky and I always want to play with her! A new sibling would great or even

I do show a bit of resource guarding over my food, and currently use a slow feeder as I like to eat really fast. Both things that can easily fixed with a little work. I will do almost anything for food.

I live in a home with cats but a home without cats would be best as I love to chase them! That being said I would do better in a home with all adults or older kids as I love to run around and play, my energy level is high and I sometimes get mouthy when I am excited.

I am hoping to find a home close to me or in a neighbouring province to make transport for me as easy as possible. I love car rides however I have a lot of energy so long car rides are hard for me to sit still!

Milo

Introduction


 Name: Milo
Breed: Siberian Husky x Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Male
Age: 3 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: No (maybe older)

Bio


Hi there, I’m Milo and I’m searching for a new foster or adopter, ideally in my own province since a flight will cost a fortune due to my size (over 60 lbs)! If my new home is out of province, flight costs can be paid by my adopter unless I get a flight sponsor!

Let’s get down to business. I am searching for a home without cats since I have not been around them and I am a husky afterall! I’ve also never been around kids, so ideally would be in a child-free home, however older kids (over 12) may be ok. I do have a one time bite history of resource guarding as well, so no definitely no small kids. I do prefer male humans to female humans, but can be universal if no male is available in the home.

While I haven’t lived with other dogs, I likely could. My main issue with other dogs is leash reactivity, but when not on a leash walk, I am really good with other dogs. I love to play, wrestle, and fetch. I’m also laid back; chilling outside is awesome. I currently live primarily outside in a fenced yard, but am house and crate trained as well. I’m also decently trained and know how to sit, down, speak, back up, shake a paw, and come (when I feel like it - I’m a husky!) I learn quickly and am easily trained, so teach me more! I do pull in the beginning of walks, but once the excitement wears off, I walk well on leash.

While I do love to hang out in my crate, I can sometimes get an attitude about being told to go in it. I can also be protective of my crate and other areas that I think are mine, so my resource guarding isn’t just with food, toys, bones, etc. My guarding of objects (not spaces) has improved though.

I am neutered and up to date on all of my vaccines. My adopter will be provided with an already registered microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption.

Cocoa

Introduction


Name: Cocoa

Breed: Siberian Husky

Sex: Female

Age: 1.5 years

Cats: No

Dogs: Yes 

Kids: Yes


Bio


It’s me, Cocoa! I’m just a small girl, around 38 lbs, but I need to put on 5-10 lbs. I’ve been starved and bred at least once, maybe more. I’m currently in heat and cannot go anywhere until the end of May, but I am accepting applications!


I am probably the sweetest dog EVER! I’m a big fan of affection, but not to the point of being needy. I’m essentially perfect! I’m very gentle and am ok with being picked up and carried, so kids would be fine! I am not good with cats however as I have been tormented with them and have killed an adult cat and a kitten. 


Despite being a young girl, I am not overly energetic indoors. Outdoors, I can last all day long playing with my friends in the fenced backyard. I’m an awesome combination of calm and playful. I’ve met dozens of dogs my size or larger in the last few weeks and have been good with all of them. I have not met small dogs, but given my issues with cats, I probably should not be in a home with small dogs. 


I’m good in a crate once you get me in there, but I’m not a real fan of going in. I’m working on this however. I do have separation anxiety if I am crated in a room alone without humans or other dogs around. I’m house trained, and I’m ok loose in the house. I’m not vocal, however I am afraid of being outside in the dark alone and will bark to let you know about it. I’m not an escape artist, but I am skilled at slipping out of my collar. I do pull on the leash and will need to work on this skill. I know how to sit and down, but only when there is a treat involved! 


I’m currently eating a raw diet since I need to gain weight and have been picky with kibble. I’m currently in heat, but available for adoption in June, so apply today! I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay contract. My spay is to be completed between July 27 and August 10. I have been through one round of deworming and the second round will be completed before I am cleared for adoption. I am microchipped as well.

Chief

Introduction

 

Name: Chief
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 3.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: No
Kids: Yes, older

Bio


Hi there, I’m Chief and I’m approximately 3 years old. I’m a husky mix of some sort, but I’m not sure with what. I am husky size though, so that’s the most important part, plus I am cute. I’m neutered and microchipped as well.

I’ve been given basic city walking manners, but I pull on leash since I have always been walked on a retractable leash. I know how to sit and wait for my dinner. You and I should probably do an obedience course together to help me learn more manners and to help us bond. I’m a smart boy, and eager to learn new things. As a dog who has lived in the city for the last 2.5 years of my life, I am tolerant of meeting passing dogs on walks, however I much prefer to live as the only pet in the home.

I have developed some bad, destructive separation anxiety. I need a home where my people are home almost all of the time, or can take me with them. I’d love to go to work with my people! In my time alone at home, I will make myself bleed in the process of destroying your home. I’ll need lots of work on this.

I have a very high prey drive, and I was tested with cats when I first came into rescue 2.5 years ago, and I failed the cat test then. So, no cats for me please! I am ok with older kids, like teenagers, due to my size and an issue with very strong reprimands. I’m more of a positive reinforcement training guy; rather than a dominance training guy.

I haven’t been in a crate in years, so I will need crate training, especially with my separation anxiety. I am house trained though, and will hold it until I am outside. Once outside, I will bark incessantly to let you know I want back inside. This can annoy neighbours, so I’m probably best in a rural setting without close neighbours, or in a home where I am indoors more often than outdoors. If left outdoors, I will also dig under or chew through a fence to escape.

I do love to go for car rides, go on hikes, adventures, etc. As long as I am with my people doing it! I’ve even tried my paws at recreational dogsledding and I thought it was fun. Perhaps I can be a skijoring/bikejoring buddy to help you get active? I’m an active guy that loves adventure, so lets hit the trails in some fashion together!

Mia

Introduction


Name: Mia

Breed: Alaskan Malamute

Sex: Female

Age: 5 years

Cats: With Caution

Dogs: No 

Kids: Yes, older


Bio 


Hi, my name is Mia. I am a big girl, with an even bigger heart. I am learning how to sit, stay, and shake a paw. As a female malamute, I am not too good with other dogs. I love going for walks, and so far I do not pull. Although I am a big dog, in my heart I am a lap dog. My favourite hobby is just sitting beside my fosters with my head in their lap and getting love. I am usually quiet, but sometimes I will let a little bark out if I'm not getting enough attention. Other than that, I am pretty quiet and enjoy laying on the floor beside my fosters while they work on the computer. 


I love to be outside, but I am able to jump tall fences. My foster Mommies were very surprised that I was able to hop the fence outside, but I didn’t run far. I am leashed at all times, because I just want to explore the outside world. I am still learning to do my business outside, so I will need an overnight excursion outside so I don’t have inside accidents. I also love to play with rope toys, and chew on my Kong. 


I have a sore tooth, so I am a slow eater. I am somewhat underweight, so caution must be exercised while I am eating. I am a slow eater, and my fosters are able to pick up my food bowl, but I may be protective over my water and food bowl when I am hungry/thirsty. I absolutely love car rides, and I am very good at napping in the back seat when my foster takes me to the vet. 


I am up to date on all of my vaccines, and I am heart-worm and lyme disease free! Just a spay and dental work, then I'll be a healthy girl. I am microchipped, which is a good thing because fences cannot hold me back. I am currently in heat, but am accepting applications for my foster-to-adopt. I should be able to leave my boarding placement the weekend of April 20th. My spay/dental is booked in Casselman for June 19th so that my uterus has time to go back down to typical size and reduce my surgery risk as much as possible. We have a vet in Peterborough as well, and Kitchener-Waterloo so we can reschedule with one of the other vets depending on adoption location :)

Timber

Introduction


Name: Timber
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective – meet and greet required
Kids: Yes, older


Bio


Hi there, I’m Timber. I’m a 5 year old neutered male Siberian Husky searching for an experienced forever home. I’m up to date on all my vaccinations and microchipped as well. I am ready to go home with my new experienced owner!


I’m very cuddly and sweet with lots of kisses to give, especially to men. I am very treat motivated and smart. I’m very trainable, but my current owner doesn’t have the experience level needed and has spent a large amount off money trying to train me, so is doing the right thing and placing me for adoption through a rescue to get me the experienced exposure I need. Below are what I need some help with. 

My main issues at home are that I do not walk well on a leash. I pull on leash, however sometimes I do just the opposite and refuse to walk. I also have some food resource guarding and I cannot stand to be crated either. I’m very selective of my doggie friends, but once I know them, I will learn to comingle if I accept them. I absolutely do not like intact male dogs or puppies, so please don’t apply if you have either in your home or visiting on a regular basis. I am also NOT good with cats or small animals, so cannot go to a home with them. I also bark a lot when I demand something or don’t get my way. 


I’m a bit of an escape artist and need a 6ft fenced yard to contain me, and one preferably with dig-prevention in place so I don’t dig out either. You know, a typical husky yard! I am house trained and despite my issues, I do not have a bite history. I currently live with another husky and my person. An experienced person could likely get me to cohabit with another husky after some work. 


My main issue outside of home, aside from the above dog interaction issues, is that I am not a fan of the vet at all. I hate my nails being trimmed. I also hate being vaccinated, but I am just telling you that vaccines make me feel funny and I don’t like them. Muzzle training and positive no poke or prodding quick vet visits will be key to helping me overcome this.

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.

Toba

Introduction


Name: Toba
Breed: Siberian Husky x Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Male
Age: 1 year (approximately)
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Yes - selective
Kids: No

Bio


Hi there, I’m Toba and I was born on February 16, 2018. I’m just a young boy, but I come with baggage, so please read carefully! I’m a fearful boy, and need an owner experienced in dealing with such behaviour. I do not have a bite history, but I do lunge at people I do not know. This behaviour is inherited from my mom, so I may or may not be able to fully get rid of this behaviour. Careful management will be the best way to deal with it and me for now. I also need a strict routine. I’m being re-homed because I have become nervous of children, and there are children in my home.

I’m looking for a home without kids, and I am selective of my doggie friends, so a meet/greet will be required to ensure we all get along. A meet/greet is also required with my new people because I am wary of strangers; especially men. Once I am comfortable with you, I like to wrestle and play tag. Give me the patience needed, and let me open up to you! I am good with cats.

I’m a very smart boy and love mental challenges, so it’s also recommended that you and I attend obedience classes together to help with my fear aggression and building our bond as well as basic obedience and socialization. I’m an escape artist as well, so please make sure you have researched both breeds before taking me home. A minimum 6ft fence is required and perimeter dig deterrent or daily inspection is strongly recommended.

I am house trained, and have been crated in the past. It’s recommended to have a crate available as a safe place for me, at least until I am settled in and adjusted. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, and my adopter will be supplied with a pre-registered microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon adoption. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter agreement.

Katie

Introduction


Name: Katie
Breed: Alaskan Malamute x Pomeranian
Sex: Female
Age: 5 months
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes


Bio

It’s me, Katie! I’m accepting applications now, however I have some very strict requirements, so read carefully! I’m about 5 months old, but I only weigh 17 lbs. That’s right, 17 pounds! I’m either a REALLY small Malamute due to malnourishment, or I am a cross with a Pomeranian. Time will tell. As such, my first requirement is a home that can afford what could potentially be thousands in growth-related veterinary costs as I mature.

As a malamute puppy (my mom is Mia), in order to prevent me from becoming a dog that doesn’t get along with other dogs, my adoptive home MUST have at least one existing, established, well-tempered, authoritative and calm dog in the home to help me continue learning the ropes as well as give me doggie-manners.

I am young enough and small enough to learn to live with cats. I can live with kids, but I do typical puppy biting and can get a little carried away. I also hate being picked up. I’d prefer older kids for these reasons, or at the very least, very respectful kids.

I have a sensitive tummy that cannot handle kibble at the moment. I am eating canned food and a bit of raw at the moment. I’m down to eating 2 meals per day and 2 snacks per day. Food is staying down and has helped me gain 4 pounds in the last 2 weeks in care! This diet will need to be followed for awhile, so again, please make sure you can afford it and are able to commit to it.

I’ve been microchipped and am in the process of deworming. My deworming regime will be completed on the 10th. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay agreement to be completed once I am mature, which is especially important with the way I am growing and developing. We don’t want to go messing around with growth hormones. I want to be a healthy girl! No spay until 2 years old for me!

Tank

Introduction


Name: Tank
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Male
Age: 3.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, older


Bio


Hi there, I’m the super handsome and perfect Tank. I’m a 3.5 year old male Alaskan Malamute and I’m almost ready to go to my forever home, so the search starts now. I’m the last of the malamutes rescued last month waiting for my turn in the spotlight. 


I’m dog friendly, even with other male dogs! I can get carried away and rough, so you’ll have to watch me. With that said, I need a home with other dogs. I’ve met a couple of kids and did well with that, but given that I’m going to be a large malamute once my weight is up, I’d be better with older kids. I also have some minor resource guarding and will growl if you go near my bone. I also have a sweet tooth, so make sure I cannot reach what is on the counter or tables in terms of food. I also have a sock fettish - whether they are on feet or in the dryer, I will steal them. I have not been around cats and given my breed, I should not be in a home with cats. 


I’m not crate trained or house trained, but I am working hard on the house training thing. My adopter will need to be patient with me as I work through learning to do my business outside. It also doesn’t help that I’m having to eat more food than normal in order to get up to a healthy weight for my upcoming vetting on May 5. I’m only 65 pounds as of 2 weeks ago and need to be closer to 90! 


I’ve been groomed several times in the last month and like Cayenne, have old, healed hot spots on my body. I do smell a lot better now though! Boy, was I stinky and stained yellow a month ago. I love my grooming and brushing, which is super important to keep up on with my wooly coat. I’m super gentle and very affectionate - cuddles please!

I am dewormed and microchipped. I will be neutered and up to date on dhppv, rabies, and heartworm tested prior to adoption. If I am adopted prior to my tentative surgery date, you will need to take me to the vet in Kitchener-Waterloo to have the procedure done, which will be paid for by the rescue.

Cayenne

Introduction

 

Name: Cayenne
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Female
Age: 6 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes - see description
Kids: Yes, older

Bio


Hi, my name is Cayenne (Pepper), but my foster people call me Kaia. I’m ready to start my search for a forever home, and I’m a nearly perfect girl if I do say so myself! If you’re looking for a gorgeous and model citizen malamute, I am your girl! I’m still a little underweight from my previous life, weighing in at 69 pounds, but I am slowly gaining!

I’m very affectionate and love cuddles and all that good stuff, but haven’t been around children. Due to my size, I’m best with older kids. I have not been around cats, so please no cats. I’m still learning how to play with other dogs. Due to my size, sometimes I can get a little assertive but the more I socialize with other dogs the better. I just need my owner to stick close by. I’ve been in an altercation with one of the female dogs in my foster home. I do guard food from other dogs, so need to be fed separately. All that being said, I do need to be in a home with other dogs for company or my separation anxiety will come out.

I’m good in the car, crate trained, house trained, and I know my basic obedience. I still have much to learn, but that’s for you to teach me. Teaching me new things will be easy! I love to be a part of whatever you, or the other dogs, are doing. I’m really skilled at getting in the way too! I love sticks and bouncy balls outside and stuffed Kong’s inside when alone! I’m not overly energetic - I’m kind of a couch potato!

I am up to date on my dappv, lyme and lepto vaccines, de-wormed, microchipped and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay agreement. Not knowing my breeding history and the filthy state I was in 3 weeks ago , it’s important for me to have one more heat cycle before being spayed in order to clean out my system and regulate my hormones. I will be vaccinated against rabies in 2 weeks to give my system a chance to recover from my last round of vaccines.
