ALASKA (and Timber)

Available for Foster/Adoption

Name: Alaska (bonded with Timber)
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Female
Age: 3.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, older

Hey, it’s me, Alaska! I’m ready to try this whole adoption thing yet again. I am seeking a home that will feed me high quality kibble and/or a raw meat diet as low-quality food does not do well for me. It causes me to lose weight rapidly, but quality food keeps me in tip-top shape! Right at the moment, I need multiple small meals per day as well.

I am the shyest of the two of us, but I do warm up quickly. A raised hand or voice will make me slink to the ground or duck, but I am working on this. Once I warm up to you, I am very affectionate. I will jump up for affection, but have lived with several children and did well. I am not a fan of being picked up or handled roughly, and will growl and warn if this happens. Respectful children are not a problem though. I am good with other dogs, however I am not good with cats. I do have a touch of food guarding due to my recent history of malnourishment, so if there are other dogs in the home besides just Timber and I, we need to be fed separated.

I am house trained and crate trained. Timber and I have escaped many times and we are energetic, so we need a home with a large fenced yard this time around. We love to see and interact with the world outside of the fence however, so our fence needs to be chainlink, or other mesh-type. If it is a wooden fence, we will dig and chew our way through the fence. We do not try to escape the mesh-type fence here in boarding nearly as much. We are a door barge list, but we do come when called for the most part.

I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay contract to be completed at an appropriate time following my next heat cycle. Ideally, I would be adopted with my bonded son, Timber. Timber: https://www.facebook.com/smartdogsrescue/photos/a.2222150994733991/2579804192302001/?type=3&theater
I am microchipped and dewormed.

BANDIT

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Bandit
Breed: Alaskan Malamute mix
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective
Kids: No

Hi, I’m the super handsome and furry playful Bandit! I’m originally from Quebec, where I had 2 previous owners in my short life already. I came to Ontario a few weeks ago to start a new life, and I am ready to start searching for it. I have been in a foster house with a certificated dog trainer for almost 2 weeks now and I’m starting to understand what family life is all about. I come with trainer support, so don’t let when I am about to tell you about me steer you too far away from me. I am looking for an experienced owner however. Obedience wise, I know SIT, stay and I’ve been working on my walking.

I am nervous around humans when I first meet them, especially men. It is suspected that I was mistreated by my leash/collar in my past, so this would explain it. I need to be approached slowly, and it will take some trust building before you will be able to touch my neck. My rescuer is able to now since we have been working together, but it will take my new person some time to get to this. Inside my foster home, I have slowly been warming up to the men. I usually just ignore them but I have gone in for a head rub once in a while. I am very treat motivated and just want to please you. Once I trust you, you will get to see my goofy and playful personality start to shine through, and you will melt! Because I am highly treat motivated, I am also pretty reactive when there is food around. My foster mom is currently working on this with me. The only time I am around food is when I am inside my crate. I eat in my crate and have snacks in my crate. Food is really the only way you will get me into my crate as I need to go in myself. I can get pretty reactive while inside my crate as well. But once I settle down, I gladly accept treats while inside laying down like a good boy. But if there is food around and another dog, I will be reactive. But I am learning how to be a good boy.

If I am uncomfortable, I will let you know. Please understand dog body language and warning symbols. I have not bitten any of the staff while I was in boarding, but I have scrunched my nose as a warning when trying to remove my leash. I do have a bite history from my past though, but the severity and circumstances are unknown. Please leave my leash on me for at least the first month both inside and out. It is part of the adoption contract anyway, but it’s crucial for me.

I am dog friendly when introduced properly, but I do need reminders to play nicely. Not all dogs understand malamute play after-all, and I can get a bit carried away. At my foster house, I have been socializing with 3 others dogs (2 huskies). I have only been muzzled during the play but I think I’m getting what play means. A meet and greet will be required prior to my adoption to ensure my new fur-sibling and my new human understand my style and to ensure we will be a good match. I am not good with cats. I have not been tested with children, but due to my neck sensitivity and bite history, I will not be adopted to a home with young children.

I have gained freedom inside my fosters living room but again, only with a muzzle. Because I can be reactive, my foster mom doesn’t want to take any chances. But she says I’ve been such a good boy with it on that I did have it off once when everyone was asleep and it was just me and my foster mom.

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

Please note that I am in the care and guidance of 3 rescues collaborating together, so the adoption process may be delayed as all 3 rescues review all applications and come to a joint decision.

BOLT (with or without Misha)

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Bolt
Breed: Alaskan Malamute mix
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

They call me Bolt because I can run quickly, but it never lasts long. I also answer to Bobo – as much as I listen to my full name. I am the alpha between my brother Misha and me, so I’m pretty pushy to get my way. I’m not dominant with anyone other than my brother. He and I argue a lot.

I currently live in peace with my brother Misha and the family dog at my foster home. I understand that the family dog is allowed on the bed and I am not, and I have to wait my turn to eat. I thrive on routine so I can know what is coming next.

I am slow to warm up to people so I bark a lot at first, but once I know I can trust you, I don’t bark much. I don’t chew and I’ve gotten the hang of the whole housetraining thing. I’ve learned basic commands like Sit, Down and Off, and I’m working on Stay. I’m a quick learner and follow short, clear instructions. I am very food-motivated and love tummy rubs.

I pull hard when I’m on a leash but my foster parents use a harness on my face that keeps me from pulling too much. I don’t really run in a yard – I just wander, sniff and take my time. I’m pretty low energy and love to sleep during the day. I do try to sneak onto the couch but I’m quick to listen when I’m told to get off.

I’m still learning not to steal food from the counter or table, but it’s never while someone is trying to eat. Don’t leave your food (or dishes) unattended until I learn a little better. I don’t really play – toys don’t interest me and I don’t like to fetch or run.

I will be your shadow, your cuddle buddy and your most loyal friend. Please no cats! We previously lived with one, but it has not gone well with a new cat in a new home.

I am neutered, up to date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. I am ready to go home with you and start my new life!

CHINOOK

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Chinook

Breed: Alaskan Malamute, GSD, Norgwegian Elkhound mix
Sex: Male
Age: 2 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes, submissive
Kids: Yes, older

Hi, Chinook here. I am two years old and have had a very interesting life so far. I was sold as a puppy to a person that thought I was the most beautiful puppy around. I had lots of people always stopping to pet me and I was so happy to meet them. Then something happened to me and all of a sudden that sweet person that adopted me sent me to another kennel which I just cannot talk about but it was pretty scary and I started to show my fear to the two leggers as it was them that kept me in fear.

When I got too big, 95 lbs now, I was homed again. Only this time the people were nice but they kept me tied to this broken old dog house. It was a really busy place and lots of cars and noise surrounded me. It was even more scary than the last people that owned me. I was living this life with a lady that just couldn't manage me because when I saw a squirrel one day, I ran after him and I guess that was bad. So, off I went again to another home. This lady is really nice, she feeds the best meals and spends lots of time working with me to help me over come my fears but I am still really shy around stranger that come to visit.

She says to me all the time what a good boy I am, I do spend all my time outside but I do have a nice warm area that I can sleep when the weather is really cold. Otherwise, I love being outside. I love to go on long walks whenever I can but I do have an uncontrollable urge to chase small animals, I have not caught one as I am one the end of a long lead but it doesn't keep me from trying.

I know this lady that I live with now loves me very much but she has always said that my destiny is to help another person and that person will be my forever home, that she is a stepping stone to helping me find my courage and help me to trust again. She believes I am ready for a new home but she said it must be a special home that understands how shy I am and that i willing to look past that because I do want to trust someone, I just need some time to get there.

I am up to date on my vaccinations and am microchipped. I am not yet neutered and I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed once I am settled in my new home.

ECHO

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Echo
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes - see description
Kids: No

Hello, hello, hello…. My name is Echo! I’m searching for an experienced home that won’t crowd me, and will let me have a blast running and playing the fenced yard! I love to run and play outside!!

I’m a calm girl unless I am outside in the fenced yard! In the yard, I run around and look simply beautiful in form doing it. I can run for hours, but can also chill indoors for hours. I’d be fine alone for a typical work day and I make very little to no noise. I could likely do an apartment as long as there is a fenced area to run off my energy after work. I am house trained, but obviously will go if I absolutely have to if you’re gone too long. I’m also good in a crate. I am a stuffy destroyer.

I am very prey-driven, so no cats for me. I am good with other dogs, however it is better if they do not live with me and we only have supervised playdates. You see, I am food aggressive with other dogs and am reportedly food aggressive with humans as well, but my people haven’t experienced this here in boarding. I will drop my dinner and come over when asked most of the time. I will also hold a grudge against my play buddy if we get into a tiff, which is why living with another dog isn’t recommended. I know how to sit and am decent on leash.

I cannot live with or be around children due to the food aggression risk as well as my displeasure towards restraint. I am super affectionate and cuddly - on my terms. I love being petted and belly rubs are wonderful! I am not a fan of being hugged, picked up, held for vetting, or being crowded in. I need to be muzzled for vet visits or even anything done at home like wound inspections, nail trims, grooming, etc. If you respect my wishes and pet me when I ask and don’t push my limits, then we can get along just fine! I do have a bite history - once due to food aggression and once due to vet restraint.

I am up to date on my bordatella and dhpp vaccinations, spayed, and will be microchipped prior to adoption.

GHOST

Available for Foster/Adoption

Name: Ghost
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 1 year
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective
Kids: Yes, older

Hey, can you see me? My name is Ghost and I am a 1 year old boy in search of an active and experienced husky home. Ideally with a fenced yard for me to run around in an burn off my energy! I currently live a very active life to help with my energy, and I definitely need to maintain this lifestyle.

I have been in the same home since I was a baby, however circumstances have changed and things have been learned about me that make me unsuitable to remain in my current home, and I need a new home really quickly. You see, young children have recently joined my home, and they terrify me. They scare me to the point that I now have a bite history on a toddler. I am good with children over 8 years old though.

I am also not a huge fan of adult men and will bark at them. I take some time to warm up to new men. I am really good with women however. I am good with most altered dogs having been a regular client at doggie daycare, but I can still be selective of my friends. I think I would like to be in a home with an active single female or active understanding couple without other pets or kids if I had my say in the matter.

I am house trained and not destructive in the home, but I am not crate trained. It did not go well as a puppy when my people tried it. I will entertain myself with my toys or bones around the home. I do not have any resource guarding surround my toys, bones, or food. I am quiet unless asked to speak. I know many of my basic obedience commands and am highly treat motivated. I like to play hide and seek around the house. I do frequently go on off leash hikes with my current owner, but would need training and a bond built with my new owner if I was to continue this.

I am neutered, up to date on all of my vaccinations and microchipped. I am ready to go home with you!

HUSKY

Available For Adoption - Courtesy Listing

Name: Husky
Breed: Husky
Sex: Male/Neutered
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective/see below
Kids: Yes

Hello, my name is “Husky”. I am estimated to be a 4 year old, Siberian Husky.

I am staying with my friends at Canon’s Cause Rescue until I find my perfect match! I arrived to Canon’s Cause Rescue September 2019 with heart worm disease. I have been treated, and still wait to test negative. Once negative, I will need to remain on monthly heart worm prevention to be sure I do not get heart worm disease again from those pesky mosquitoes.

You see, I would prefer to be an only dog, as I am top dog, and need to feel secure and safe. I will growl/bark and lunge if they come into my space but I do not go looking for trouble. I definitely cannot have any small dogs/cats in my home. I have prey drive and anything that moves is fair game. I will only focus on that and will put the chase on. I do enjoy play time outside the home with my canine companions. I do not do well in a crate as I will panic and will voice my opinion when my person leaves. I am not destructive, I just pace and howl, and I may jump onto furniture to see outside. I have house manners and will not mess in the house.

My new family must be confident, fair and promise to be patient while I settle into my new home. They must have patience with my separation anxiety, and be willing to put time into my treatment and training. I am obedient and food motivated, unless I am stressing. Feel free to love me up, I so enjoy the affection! I love ALL people and have been told I am, loyal to a fault, calm (while with my people), engaging, cuddly, smart and silly! I do settle nicely in the home once I am well exercised and with my people. Children are fun play mates but I do get over excited and may jump up to be with them. Older children will be best.

I travel well and I’m excited to go on car rides! I really enjoy my walks and will walk on a leash with respect, but like many dogs, I need some help coping with wildlife encounteres on walks.

I am up to date on my Rabies, Bordatella, Parainfluenza, Lepto and Da2PP vaccinations, neutered, and am microchipped. I’m all ready to go!

KLAUS

Available for Adoption

Name: Klaus
Breed: Jindo x Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 3 years
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Selective
Kids: No

Hello folks, my name is “Klaus”. I am a 3 year old, Husky/Jindo mix born on September 2 2016. I am handsome as all heck, however I do have my quirks, so please read carefully.

I am staying with my friends at Howling Pines until I find my perfect match! Secretly... I’ve been on my best behaviour in hopes that I can stay... I am just waiting for the rest of the pack here to leave so I can have the place to myself!! You see, I would prefer to be an only dog, and definitely not have any small dogs in my home. I have previously lived with a female chow chow whom I got along with very well, however, a meet and greet will be required if I am to live with other dogs. I will growl and bark if they come into my space but I do not go looking for trouble.

I am intelligent, loyal to a fault, calm (while with my caregiver) and I have impeccable house manners. My new caregiver must be confident, fair and promise to lead the way. They must have patience with my separation anxiety, and be willing to put time into my treatment and therapy. I am obedient and food motivated, unless I am stressing, and I am always close on the heels of my favorite person, which I need to work on. Feel free to love me up, I do enjoy the affection, however, I am not the cuddly type. I feel the need to maintain close physical contact and do not do well on my own. I will need a safe and secure, confined space when necessary, as I will try and escape. Please read up on the Jindo breed to learn all about me as I act almost exclusively like a Jindo! I will also need a home in the country where I can voice my opinion when my person leaves. My bark is very loud!

I can cohabitate with a cat or two, or caged animals, but outside, anything that moves is fair game. Introductions will still need to be done to any animals in my home. I just ignore indoor smaller pets. I do travel well and I’m excited to go on car rides when appropriate. Small children terrify me, but I don’t mind teenagers. Please no children under 16 for me.

I am up to date on my rabies, bordatella and dhpp vaccinations, neutered, and am microchipped. I’m all ready to go!

LEXIE

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Lexie
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 3 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes - see description
Kids: No

Hey my name is Lexie! I’m searching for an experienced home, so please read carefully before deciding whether to apply for me or not. I’m a beautiful girl, but please do not fall for me based on my looks!

I’m a girl that needs a fenced yard, with a fence minimally 5ft high. I am not a fan of being leashed up and I am absolutely terrified on a tether, so let’s not go there. I am kind of a picky eater and will only eat kibble so far. I am crated trained, but only for a wire crate, however I will try to escape the crate so you’ll need several clips for the door to keep me contained. Once the weak points are secured, I make no attempt at escape. I am very much a counter-surfer, and will need to be crated in your absence. I am house trained and I am very loyal and obedient to my human once we establish a connection.

I am very prey-driven, and my trial with cats was not good. Please no cats for me. I am good with other dogs, however it is better if they do not live with me and we only have supervised playdates. You see, I am food and toy possessive with other dogs and people. I LOVE to play with other dogs, but I am a heavy player and do not know when to stop, even with other dogs telling me when to stop. This can lead to fights. I love to play with my humans too!

I cannot live with or be around children due to the food and toy aggression as well as my displeasure towards collar handling. I am not a fan of being hugged, picked up, held for vetting, or being crowded in. I need to be muzzled for vet visits or even anything done at home like wound inspections, nail trims, grooming, etc. If you respect my wishes and pet me when I ask and don’t push my limits, then we can get along just fine! I do have a bite history - once due to collar restraint, and the other is unknown as it was before I entered the shelter.

I am microchipped, but I am not yet spayed. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay contract to be completed once I am settled in, more behaviourally sound, and at an appropriate time following my heat cycle. I can be spayed in mid-February.

LUNA

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Luna
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Female
Age: 7 months
Cats: Likely
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hi my name is Luna and I am just perfection! There is some confusion in my paperwork on whether I am 7 or 11 months currently, but my foster people really think I am closer to the 7 month old mark. I know I will not last long and there will be a battle over me, so please be patient while my rescue people go through what is bound to be dozens of applications for me.

I came to the rescue with an extreme fear of humans as noted by the shelter, however, I have nothing more than the typical brief apprehension of new people during this natural fear period I am in. If you do startle me, I may back up and fear bark, but I will recover very quickly. I also came with a bottle of trazodone, but I haven’t had a single tablet since arriving here.

I am not fully house trained, and the first couple of days there will be accidents. After that though, I am very tidy in the home, aside from shredding paper! I am making great progress on my crate training, however, I need my crate to be fully covered while I am in it. I really like the cave feel, and I can’t sleep if it’s too light outside. I will even bury my face under you when I try to nap during the day on the couch with you! It’s the cutest thing ever! I do have separation anxiety, however covering my crate really helps me falls asleep. I’d prefer a detached home with a fenced yard to play in though.

As a husky puppy, I do have quite a bit of energy and a curious mind. I need lots of daily exercise and I do need obedience training and household manners. I like to find things on the counters to eat. I do also jump up to say hello, but I am otherwise fantastic with all people of all sizes. I was raised with 3 very young children and other dogs. I haven’t been around cats, but I don’t foresee much of an issue in that department. I do get a bit overwhelmed by the bigger dogs here in my foster pack of 17 dogs, or if they all greet me at once, but if you watch me and bring me in when I am Tag and the rest are It, there are no issues.

I am microchipped, up to date on my dhpp and bordatella vaccinations, spayed, and dewormed. I am ready to go home with you!

MAYA

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Maya
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Female
Age: 2 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes - larger
Kids: No

Hello, my name is Maya and I am here searching for a forever home without any children living in my home, and with an experienced owner than understands and can work with and/or manage my quirks.

I am a wonderful girl with my family most of the time, however, when food, toys, treats or any other resources I find are involved, I am a different girl. I can get very possessive, and I do have a multiple bite history over this issue. It is because of this quirk and bite history that I will not be adopted to a home with children. I am also good with dogs until my resource guarding comes into play. I am not great with smaller dogs, so please only similar sized or bigger dogs for me! I have not been tested around cats, but would more than likely not do well with them, so let’s not go there.

I like to talk to you and my fur-siblings, but am not a barker unless I am playing with my fur-siblings. I think I am a lap dog, but no one has told me about my size yet! I really try to be a good girl and love my people! I need someone that understands and can work with my resource guarding behaviours that I unfortuantely exhibit every few months.

I am house trained, but I have not been in a crate since I was a young puppy. I would be able to be crate trained with treats, which would be a good thing to help me with my resource guarding. I haven’t had any formal obedience classes, but I know my basic commands fairly well. I do pull on leash unless I am in my training collar however.

I am spayed, up to date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. I am ready to go home with you and start my new life!

MILO

Available for Adoption

Name: Milo
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 5.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes - see description
Kids: No


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 previous owner 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 last human when I was 1.5 years old. Before being with my previous owner, I was around children, but I haven’t been around any in the last 4 years. I am also a large husky mix and I will guard high-value resources, but not my food. I like to jump up to say hello, and need to work on this. 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 need a proper introduction and then I am fine with dogs similar to my size. I am not good with little dogs. 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 unless I am adopted to a single-pet home. 


I am house trained, non-destructive and am also crate trained. I will require a 5ft 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.

MISHA (with or without Bolt)

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name:Misha
Breed: Alaskan Malamute mix
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hi! I’m Misha and I am a big softy. I warm up to people quickly and I loooooooove to sit on your lap. I am bigger than my brother Bolt but he still pushes me around. I came to my foster home with a sore leg so I haven’t wanted to go on walks much, but I wander the yard slowly. I need a yard for exercise but it doesn’t need to be very big, as I don’t run or jump.

I need to go outside first thing in the morning. I drink and eat as much as you give me, which is sometimes too much and I make myself sick. I chew a little bit (I ate a hairbrush at the foster home) but that was it. I’m just a young guy afterall! I love treats, and I still get caught grabbing food from the counter.

I currently live with and get along well with the family dog at my foster home. I understand that the family dog has privileges that I do not and I have to wait my turn to eat. I thrive on routine so I can know what is coming next. I cannot live in a house with cats.

I mark my territory often but that should change after my neuter. My brother and I bicker a lot but I usually let him win because I don’t like fighting. I love to chew on bones but other toys don’t really interest me.

I am looking for someone who can love me as much as I love them. I’m a pretty typical malamute, so if you love the breed, you’ll love me!

I am neutered, up to date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. I am ready to go home with you and start my new life!

NANOUK

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Nanouk
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 2 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes - see description
Kids: No

Bonjour, je suis Nanouk du Nord. Oh, oops, I am in Ontario now so let me translate that. Hello, I am Nanouk (of the North). I am super handsome and I am searching for my forever home. I am a good boy, so let me tell you about myself.

I’m a handsome boy that knows my basic obedience commands like sit and down, but I could definitely benefit from obedience classes. I am working on my leash walking skills and I am in need of further crate training, but am learning about it. I have a healthy appetite and may search the house for other things I can eat, so crating me when I am alone is recommended.

I am dog friendly when introduced properly, but I do need reminders to play nicely. I am an assertive player, and not all dogs understand this. Other breeds don’t understand the husky play style, so I am only looking for husky siblings please. A meet and greet will be required prior to my adoption to ensure my new fur-sibling and my new human understand my style and to ensure we will be a good match. I am not good with cats. I have not been tested with children, but due to my mouthing tendencies, I will not be adopted to a home with young children.

Now for the catch. You may have seen that I sit a little different. You see, I have luxating patellas. While I do not need surgery currently, I may need surgery later in life or develop arthritis, so keep this in mind. One leg is worse than the other, but I get around just fine. I enjoy going for a couple of longer runs a day and a few shorter runs as well, and can handle this amount of exercise without issue. I love my exercise and being active. When I’m appropriately exercised, I am very well-behaved in the house aside from my puppy-like play nipping and mouthing.

I am neutered, dewormed, and up to date on my DHPP and bordatella vaccinations. My adopter will be provided with an already registered microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption as I am not yet microchipped, unless done before adoption.

ROGUE

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Rogue
Breed: Siberian Husky x Alaskan Malamute
Sex: Female
Age: 2 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, older

Hi, my name is Rogue! I am a 2 year old Siberian/Malamute mix, born on November 23, 2017. I am looking for an energetic family who is patient and understanding of my separation anxiety. I do have a deadline for rehoming/intake of June 15 2020 due to life changes of my current owner.

When you are home, I am a very well behaved girl. I am potty trained and I know all the basic commands. When left alone, my separation anxiety makes me very nervous and I frequently have accidents in the house. Sometimes I destroy small household items if I’m having a bad day. Unfortunately, I hated being alone in a crate so much as a puppy that I was never able to be crate trained.

I love getting attention and snuggles from anyone but, I can get a bit jealous if another dog is getting more attention than me. I also get very excited when you come home or someone comes for a visit that I get a bit jumpy but this is something I am working on.
I am very sociable and playful with other dogs and I love going to the dog park, but I do not get along well with cats.

I am best with older kids due to my size and jumping up while greeting, as well as my energy level. I am ideally seeking a home with a fenced in yard to help me expend my young girl energy and help with my anxiety level. Additionally, unless someone is home at all times, attached housing with my anxiety would not be ideal.

I am spayed and up to date on my vaccinations. My adopter will be provided with an already registered microchip to have inserted by their veteriarian upon my adoption if not already done before adoption.

SESI

Available for Foster/Adoption

Name: Sesi
Breed: Alaskan Malamute mix
Sex: Female
Age: 1 year
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective
Kids: Yes, older

Hello, my name is Sesi (which means “Snow”in Inuit) . I was born December 25th , 2018 and I weigh approximately 70lbs. I am a beautiful girl and am looking for a loving forever home who understands my breed. I am a good girl who knows some of my basic commands like sit, down, wait, and off. I am eager to learn and please. The gentleman and lady have found that with praise and treats learning has been much quicker. I am no longer afraid of stairs and have mastered them because of carpeting.

I am recently from a broken home and I am being cared for by loving people (my grandparents) who are spending lots of time working with me. I have learned many obedience skills during my short stay with them. I am a loveable big girl who is energetic and loves to play and cuddle. I do have a few bad habits, like sniffing counters and tables but I am working on that and do understand Off, Down and No. I have lots of energy and I love to put on my harness and go for a couple of longer walks and a shorter walk is a bonus as well. My nature and age requires exercise so I do not become bored, so walks are the bestest. I am very friendly and during my walks I love to meet and greet lots of people. I am like a social butterfly with people. Because of my nature to roam, I am leash/harness trained. I am harness trained as I will sometimes pull away when only using my collar and leash and have almost gotten loose. I have been practising with a gentle leader and I don’t mind that. Given my nature to roam it is best that I be kept on leash while outside.

I am well behaved in the house with the exception of my puppy-like behaviour and curiosity of following you around the house. I don’t run crazy around the house as long as I get enough exercise, I am still very young. I love my exercise which tires me and then I like to sleep like a puppy all cuddled. My temporary family has been working with me to potty outside. I have accomplished pooping outside (within a week) on my walks and am also peeing outside (although I have had the odd accident on the puppy pad). I think I would be able to avoid those accidents, if I had a fenced in yard. I am wire crate trained and require several clips on the door as I am smart and know how to open it. Once my crate is clipped I am fine and do not attempt to escape.

I love people and especially love their attention and affection. I have not been tested with young children only older children (my teenage people cousins) who understand dogs and commands. I am prey driven, so please no cats or small dogs for me. It would be best if there are no other pets, but I am learning to greet other dogs on walks. The loving people taking care of me are working on my socializing with dogs of similar size during my walks and it has been working out pretty good. I have been good with some similar size dogs (medium to large) at a Pet Hotel and I did make a couple of friends.

I am up to date on my vaccinations and am microchipped. I am not yet spayed. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay contract to be completed once I am settled in my new home.

TIMBER (and Alaska)

Available for Foster/Adoption

Name: Timber (bonded with Alaska)
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 2 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hey, it’s me, Timber! I’m ready to try this whole adoption thing yet again. I am seeking a home that will keep my mother, Alaska, and I together. As well as an active home that will be able to keep up to me.

I am the more outgoing and chatty of the two of us. I am very affectionate and love receiving petting from anyone!. I will jump up for affection, but have lived with several children and did well. I like to follow my people around and roo woo at them to let them know I am there. I am like a shadow. I am good with other dogs, however I am not good with cats. I am respectful at waiting for Alaska to finish her multiple daily meals, and show no desire to eat more than one meal per day - preferably raw, but I will eat whatever is served in the afternoon. I am smaller than Alaska, and am not a big boy at all.

I am not fully house trained, but I am working on it. I am crate trained however. Alaska and I have escaped many times and we are energetic, so we need a home with a large fenced yard this time around. We love to see and interact with the world outside of the fence however, so our fence needs to be chainlink, or other mesh-type. If it is a wooden fence, we will dig and chew our way through the fence. We do not try to escape the mesh-type fence here in boarding nearly as much. We are a door barge list, but we do come when called for the most part.

I am scheduled to be neutered on March 3 in London, ON. Ideally, I would be adopted with my bonded mom, Alaska. Alaska :https://www.facebook.com/smartdogsrescue/photos/a.2222150994733991/2579804188968668/?type=3&theater

WALTER

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Walter
Breed: Husky, Malamute, CED mix
Sex: Male
Age: 8 months
Cats: Untested - Maybe
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes - older


Hi, my name is Walter and I was born on May 20 2019 and I weigh around 60 pounds. I’m pretty much a perfect puppy, so I do not understand how no one has adopted me yet! I am good with older kids, good with dogs, and would probably do ok with cats, though I have not met any yet. 


I am great in the house, but I do have a few bad habits. My cute little nose gets me into trouble a fair bit. Counters and tables need to be clear of temptation, and doggie treats need to be on high shelves. Food stuff just smells sooooo good I cannot help but get my nose and paws where they shouldn’t be. I don’t run crazy around the house as long as I get enough exercise. I have only had one accident in the house, and I did ask to go out but my foster people didn’t move quick enough and it was only my first night here. I am house and crate trained. 

I like to be near you or beside you, but I am not snuggly. You can hug me, but you won’t catch me sleeping next to you with you touching or snuggling me. You can even pick me up and carry me if you’re strong (I am 60+ pounds and still have a lot of growing to do!). I am good on the couch and not destructive in the home. I am good in your room with the door closed at night, but I am not ready for free-roam. When it comes to restraint, I get easily worked up when being held laying on my side or my back, and can vocal and mouthy. I will get grabby with my mouth at times, so I need to only be with older children as a precaution. But neither instance is bad at all, and I am a really really good boy just going through some growth stuff. Please no attached housing for me.


You see, I have a bit of separation anxiety, and will loudly bark when I am alone and crated. I need someone in the room with me long enough for me to fall asleep (just like a human toddler), and then I am silent in the crate until I wake up. Then I will start barking when I wake up so I can go outside and get a drink. I will need at least one other dog in my home to maintain my dog social skills as I have come a LONG way in this area. Additionally, my breed composition does not do well as single dogs. My main requirment for my forever home is another, large dog. I love my malamute foster brother and my many siberian foster siblings. I respect my position in the pack with them, but prefer the younger, playful ones over the mellow calm seniors. I need a playmate as opposed to just co-existing with the other dog(s) in my home. 


I am microchipped and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed once I am over 1 year of age, and preferably closer to 2 years old.

WILLOW

Available for Adoption

 Name: Willow
Breed: Siberian Husky x Labrador Retriever
Sex: Female
Age: 9 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Maybe calm seniors - see description
Kids: No

Hello, I’m Willow and I am looking for a forever home in my golden years. It’s just me and my foster mom in the great white north; I absolutely love all the attention and leisurely walks. I lived with my previous family since I was 5 months old, but was not keen on the arrival of a new tiny human so I am now in foster and looking for a new home. I have had a few tussles with other dogs in my previous home and have nipped at the baby. My previous mom is a dog groomer so I am a very well groomed lady, I even allow my foster mom to bathe me and brush my teeth!

I am 10/10 house trained and do just fine left loose in the house during my foster mom’s long work day (I am always excited to go on a walk right when she gets home). I am not destructive in the home at all and do not sit on furniture unless invited. When I first arrived at my foster mom’s I warfed down my food with incredible speed and wouldn’t let her near my chew bones and toys. It’s been a few weeks now and I’ve learned that I do not need to compete for food and that I can take my time eating my meals.

I am very quiet and rarely make noise, I love my treats and know my basic commands. I grew up on a farm and can be off-leash, I will come back when you call me, but please don’t let me loose where there could be loud noises or sudden movements that startle me as I am easily startled. Please also establish a bond with me before allowing me off-leash!

I do not like when new people I am not overly familiar with enter into my home when my mom is not around, I need a slow and gradual introduction before you can leave me with a dog sitter (a one time meet and greet before you leave will not do! You need to show me that I can really trust them). I do great in a boarding situation however, so that is a very viable option while you are away. Otherwise I am very friendly and love to get pets from mom’s friends. I’m slowly making friends with other large dogs, but still like to stick close to foster mom; she says we’ll take it slow.

I would do well in a low activity home as I have a lame front leg; it was operated on 7 years ago, but there was no improvement. It’s not painful at all and I get around just fine with it. I love to be the centre of attention, so please no other pets; I am also uncomfortable around tiny humans. I am a great loyal companion who just wants to be your number one furry friend. I love my dog beds as well, and if something scares me, or I have had enough, I will just go an lay on my bed. This is my quiet place and I would prefer not to be disturbed when I am on my bed.

I am spayed, up to date on my vaccinations and I am microchipped. I am ready to go home with you!

YETI

Available for Adoption

Name: Yeti
Breed: Siberian Husky x Shepherd
Sex: Male
Age: 5 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hello, my name is Yeti and I am here searching for a forever home due to an unfortunate situation involving a cat. I am now labelled as a dangerous dog, and need to be relocated to a different town, or ideally, state, where I will be allowed to live out my life without the authorities coming after me.

I am a wonderful boy and love to snuggle with humans of all ages. I can be a bit wary of new people in the beginning, and I do better meeting new people while in the company of people that I know. I love children, and I am good with other dogs my own size. I would actually be best in a home with another high energy playful dog that can keep up with me and we can wear ourselves out. I play really well with other dogs and my foster person can provide videos of my playing with her dog. I have a lot of energy and I love to run, so I need the outlet for my energy. If my energy is not expelled daily, I do like to escape my yard. I need a secure yard and/or a tether as well as savvy people to keep me safe so that I am not hunting neighbourhood cats. Playing with my foster doggie friends has me exhausted an on my best behaviour! A tired husky is a happy husky, and I have been sleeping a lot since I got here a few days ago.

I am house trained, and have been crated in the past. I will need a bit of a refresher on my crating. I do have a bit of separation anxiety as well since I am very loyal, so crate-training is a great idea to prevent me from destroying or escaping your home in your absence. I may have nervous potty habits if I am scared and in the beginning of introduction to my new environment, but I will settle in and show you that I am house trained once I am comfortable. I know my basic obedience commands, however I do sometimes pull on the leash. I follow foster mom around on her heels and have adapted to my new temporary home quite quickly. I like to hide under foster mom’s bed and I like dark spaces to spend my quiet time. I am not exhibiting any food or toy guarding, and I have never bitten a human.

I am neutered, up to date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. I am ready to go, and I can be transported to my new home!
