Aurora

Introduction


 Name: Aurora
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

I was purchased as a puppy off kijiji at 9 weeks old and have been with my family ever since. My family loves me very much and are sad to have to re-home me but it’s their fault, not mine. Their family structure has changed and they can no longer provide the care and love I deserve.

I love attention and affection and think I am a lap dog. I try to sleep in my mom’s bed every night, but she makes me get down so I sleep on the floor beside her bed. If you let me on your bed, I would love that! I am not crate trained, so that would be something we’d have to work on if you wanted me to be crated at night or in your absence.

I am house trained, but at my home I have a doggy door and 24/7 access to my dog run. However I do just fine when I visit grandma’s house I let them know when I need outside. I love other dogs and get along very well with them. I had a 10 year old husky sister until recently who was the alpha female and I respected her.

I love my human sister we love to play together, I am always gentle with her, I have been well socialized since puppyhood with humans and other dogs. I love other dogs and get along well with them. I have never met a cat, so I don’t know how I’d be with those. I’ll say no cats please to be safe.

I can dig under the fence to escape and get loose, although I have not done this I about 4 years. I went to obedience school as a puppy I did really well in all areas except recall, so I did not pass the course. I still know all of my commands. I walk on the leash on the left side and do not pull and I sit at all intersections.

I am looking for immediate adoption or fostering. How can you not just love me?! Dog and child-friendly! Scoop me up and take me home to live with your family!

I am spayed and my adopter will be provided with a microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption, if not done prior to adoption.

Timber and Alaska

Introduction


 Names: Timber and Alaska
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male and Female
Age: 1 year and 3 year
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Bio

Hi there, we are Timber and Alaska and we are a package deal! 2-for-1. It is believed that we are mother and son, however we will never know as we were originally strays. Our personalities are the complete opposite, so read below.

Timber is your typical high-energy teenage husky boy. He’s super smart and mischievious as well as energetic and talkative. He’s outgoing and affectionate - He will follw you everywhere around the house. Timber is not house or crate trained and will need more work in these departments. Timber is a go with the flow kind of guy.

Alaska is much calmer and timid. Alaska will roll over submit if a hand is raised above her head. She’s much lower energy and chill. She’s not talkative, but does have a big 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. Alaska is not crate or house trained, but she is so nervous, she will hold her business until she’s about to burst.

We’ve met smaller dogs and have done well with them, but as we are 2 and our past is unknown, we will not be adopted to a home with cats as a precaution due to pack mentality. We have met kids, and Alaska was really interested in them, while Timber was his hyper-self.

We are microchipped. We are booked for rabies vaccinations and are booked or spay/neuter September 27th in London, ON. We can be adopted before that date however, and our adopter will receive a rebate of $125 per dog for having us spayed/neutered. Our bonded pair adoption fee is $200.

Jax(2)

Introduction


 Name: Jax
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 1 year
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Bio

Hi there, I’m the lively young Jax, not the older, calmer Jax. Once again, my rescue has 2 dogs with the same name, at the same time! I’m a typical teenage husky with energy to burn and in need of training, so please make sure you are ready for that.

I’m an escape artist and need a husky-savvy owner with the means for proper confinement of a husky. I would do best with another husky to help me burn off my energy, and I am good with other dogs so why not? Two is better than one they say! I am strongly not recommended with cats since I have not met them before and I am skilled at killing chickens.

I am house trained and crate trained, however will need more work on crating since I prefer an over-sized crate. If I am left loose when alone, I will get into trouble like chewing things I am not supposed to, so I do need to be crated in your absence. I am an excitement pee’er as well. I will urinate myself when I meet exciting new people.

I come from a home with lots of children, so I would be fine in a home with children so long as my energy level doesn’t scare the kids if I accidentally knock them down or jump on them. Keep me exercised and stimulated though, and I will be on my best behaviour. Attending obedience classes with me would be strongly recommended not only to help stimulate my brain and teach me manners, but also to help us form a bond.

Jax is up to date on all of his vaccines and his adopter will be provided with a microchip to have inserted by your veterinarian upon my adoption. Jax is intact and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed when I am settled in and have calmed down some.

Jax(3)

D


Name: Jax
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 9 years
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Selective – meet and greet required
Kids: No

Bio


Hi there, the name is Jax(#3), and I am in need of an immediate foster/adopter placement. Are you able to take me into your calm and quiet home quickly?

Jax is nine years old and has lived with his current owner for the past 4 years along with two other dogs who are each 4 years old and a cat who is 2. He has no history of medical issues aside from having tartar build up on his teeth which has been cleaned and a cyst removed 3 years ago which has never grown back. He is brushed once a week to avoid looking shaggy but has never had matted fur.

When he first arrived with us he had trust issues but once shown through a variety of food, treats and walk becomes very friendly and approachable. Jax is very laid back, he enjoys two walks a day once in the morning and another in the afternoon but also enjoys a good run of no more then 5 km otherwise you might have to care him home the rest of the way. Once he is done he just likes to lay on his bed and relax the day away. Even though he is low-energy, he is also playful and will enjoy giving high-five’s and playing fetch.

Jax prefers adults over children but is playful if the child is patient. For this reason, Jax needs an adult only home, but children over 12 can visit the home. Jax does have a bite history however, so caution needs to be exercised. Clear boundaries need to be set right away when introduced to a new home. I.e master bedroom should be off limits until he understands where his sleeping area will be. Although my wife and I encouraged him to sit on the couch it took 3 years before he did so, and more encouraging again once we got a new couch. Jax will also pull unattended food or food wrappers off a table or counter and he should always be aware of his location. Garbage is best disposed of immediately.

Jax has been crated in the past and he is house trained. He will loudly let you know when he needs out. If he has an accident indoors, he will go and hide.
Jax is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his rabies vaccination.

Kevin

Introduction


Name: Kevin
Breed: Alaskan Malamute mix
Sex: Male
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective - see description
Kids: No



Hi, I’m Kevin and I’m back again! I don’t know why, and would love to get into a forever home this time. My birthday is April 1 2015 and I am searching for a specific type of home. Please read below to see if you might be the home that I need. My first owner said I am an Alaskan Husky x Anatolian Shepherd, but I look just like a smaller Alaskan Malamute. 

I am a lower energy dog, but, I do have a bit of general and separation anxiety. I drool when I am anxious, and I do bark a little when I am outside alone. I have the sweetest temperament, however, I do not like children and I can get a bit grabby in play as well, so please be aware of that. I am also submissive/uneasy with rough play, so only gentle toy play and lots of petting please. I much prefer to be around the male humans of the household, but would adapt to a female given the bonding time. 

I am a bit selective of my canine pals, and may be best as an only dog unless the right dog applies for me as their brother. I’m not into high energy dogs with no concept of personal space or downtime (including puppies, young adults, small dogs, overbearing dogs) and nor am I into dogs that are dominant. I would pair well with a calm, laid back, keep to themselves, senior dog. I do get jealous of other dogs receiving the human affection instead of me, and I will growl. I am also selective with cats, so it would be best not to have a cat or to be able to fully separate the house. 

I am crate trained, house trained, I know some basic commands, and I walk decently on the leash. I would be a good candidate for a retired individual or someone who works from home. I need a quiet environment as too much change and activity stresses me out. I would be suitable for an apartment/condo/townhouse situation as long as I got adequate exercise and my 75 lbs size is allowed in the building rules. I love going for walks and car rides as well. 

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

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.

Nukka

Introduction


Name: Nukka
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Female
Age: 7 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes - older, see description

Bio


Hi there, I’m the fun-loving and adorable Nukka! I’ve been in care for 2 weeks now, so it’s my time to shine on the adoption floor! I’m just the most lovely malamute ever! I will not last long, so get your application in now!!!

My age is only an estimate as I was picked up stray by a shelter. It was believed I had an ear infection, but I do not. It was just matting behind my ears, which has all been taken care of by the groomer-lady and I am feeling soooo much better! It’s going to be super important to make sure I visit the groomer every couple of months to prevent my longer coat from matting up, so please be prepared for this. I do have a minor case of cherry eyes, however, but it’s getting better on it’s own and at this time doesn’t need to be addressed.

I’m good with other dogs, though have had minimal contact with other female dogs, so I will still need a meet and greet, but my interactions with male dogs of all energy levels are great! Even a 10 month old puppy boy. I haven’t been introduced to small dogs or cats, so I won’t be going to a home with those to be safe. I have no jealousy issues surrounding affection and other dogs.

I’m not fond of going in the crate, but will do so for a treat. Oh how I love treats! And food. I love my food so much in fact, that you must leave me alone while I am eating. Do not touch me while I am eating, and do not try to take my food away. Just leave me be, is that too much to ask? It is for younger kids, which is why I will need only a home with older kids who have learned to respect dogs’ personal space. I will need to be fed separate from other dogs that may try to stick their noses into my food as well. Feeding me in my crate would be a really good idea! I am house trained.

As a stray, it is impossible to tell if I am spayed or not, so I will need to be watched for signs of a heat cycle to be absolutely certain. It is guessed that I am spayed, however. For this reason, I will not be adopted to a home with intact males, just to be on the safe side. If it turns out that I am not spayed, it is recommended to address the cherry eye at the same time as spay surgery to reduce my anaesthetic risk. If the cherry eye becomes a problem, you could have me opened to up see if I am spayed, but I am adopted on a non-breeding agreement (spay not required due to age) anyway. I am microchipped.

Rocky

Introduction


 Name: Rocky
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 4.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: No
Kids: No

Bio


Rocky is a handsome Siberian Male husky with two blue eyes and striking markings. He's 70lbs in the dead of winter and 70lbs in the heat of summer. Rocky turned 4 years old this past January. He is super smart and very habitual in his lifestyle. He can adapt to new habits fairly well. He let's you know if he hasn't had his dinner by 5:30 and hasn't gotten out for a walk by 6:00. He loves going to local trails and dog parks to see his friends and to make new ones. He is very active and runs well in front of a bicycle. He also likes sleeping in on mornings whenever he can.

He does have aggression when it comes to food, whether its eating his, a bone or around other dogs during human dinner time. He has bitten our lab on two occasions over food and a treat. Luckily they didn’t involve any trips to a vet. He has also bitten people on 3 occasions, around food and possessions. Please don’t let this be a decisive factor because I know he is still learning and adapting and I feel he can be trained to behave better. He is a great dog who's always excited when you come home from work and wants to interact with anyone who will let him.

Rocky is neutered and up to date on all of his vaccines. He is also microchipped. He is house trained, but is not crate trained. A change in his lifestyle with new long work hours for his owner and another dog moving into the home has made him uncomfortable and in search of a new forever home with more time for him and the experience with resource guarding needed to help him overcome it. He’s not a fan of other dogs in his home, where possessions are his to guard, but he can socialize outside of his home with selective dogs.

Rocky has not been around cats or children, but given his guarding and bite history, he will be not be placed in a home with either.

Keemo

Introduction


 

Name: Keemo
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 6 years
Cats: With Caution
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Bio


Hi, my name is Keemo and I’m searching for a forever home where someone is ALWAYS with me! I’m super wonderful in every aspect of my life except for one major issue - severe separation anxiety. I cannot be left alone, even for a second, at all. As soon as you leave my side, my anxiety kicks into high gear and I am very vocal and destructive.

I am really good with other dogs, however having other dogs in the home is not a replacement aide for my separation anxiety unfortunately. I need a PERSON with me at all times. I’d do excellent with a retired individual or one who works from home! I’d also likely do well in a home with several individuals working different shifts.

I’m good with kids and love my affection. I’m house trained, but I can escape a crate in about 2 minutes. No crates for me, unless it’s an Impact crate. I will go through walls if left unattended as well. I’m not a high energy dog, so won’t knock down young children. I have no toy drive and no food/resource aggression. I do pull on leash, though it is manageable and very trainable!

I met the clinic cat at the veterinarian yesterday and was held by reception for the 1.5 hours while other dogs saw the vet (note once again that I cannot be alone!), and reception reported that I had no issues with the cat was only focused on trying to get back to my foster mom. I could maybe live with a cat with an experienced owner and dog-savvy cat. We can never be too careful!

I am neutered, microchipped, and up to date on DAPPV and Bordatella vaccines. Due to my anxiety, I was denied for rabies vaccination due to high probability for a reaction. I am otherwise healthy and a good weight. I do still eat ok despite my anxiety, but my hydration levels will need to be watched due to the excessive panting.

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.

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!

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(1)

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.

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.

ADOPTION PENDING

Kunik

Introduction


Name: Kunik
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 1 years
Cats: Yes - with caution
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Bio


Hi! My name is Kunik which means sweet. I am a very active almost 2 year old husky (my birthday is July 16). I currently live with small children and a cat, that I like to chase in play, so would do well with a family. I’m also good with dogs of a similar energy level and age. It would likely be best if I had other dog playmates to help keep my energy worn down.

I love everyone and love being social and affectionate with new people. I get very excited, sometimes a little too excited, when people come to my house. I’m getting better at not jumping up but sometimes need reminding. I don’t like being tied up so would love a new family that has a big fenced in yard. If I get the chance, I love to run. And when I run, I love running in the woods for a few days! My little kids are so kind to me and open the front door for me so that I can go searching in the woods, another good reason I need a big fenced yard.

I’m not the greatest on a leash as I’m a very good puller, but I may get better with some more practice! I am house trained and love sleeping on my bed at night in my parents room. I’m always pretty good and I’ve never chewed anything while left inside. If I’m left inside too long I sometimes have the odd accident but I’m good for short periods. I’m not crate trained and don’t think that I’d like it... I think I would get very anxious about being kept in a crate, but ya never know!

I will need to be leashed when indoors at first to work on my door-dashing abilities and to keep me safe. A baby gate between the door and I would be a great idea if there are young children in my home that like to go in and out of doors often.

I am intact and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay agreement to be completed at an appropriate time surrounding my heat cycles and once I am settled in. My adopter will be supplied with a microchip, if not done before adoption.

• Located in Bobcaygeon, ON – $400 adoption fee - $250 rebate after proof of spay if not done before adoption

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.
