ASH

Available for Adoption

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

Hi, I’m Ash and I’m unbelievably still searching for a home and haven’t had any viable interest. I was picked up as a stray, but I am a good boy overall. They estimate my age to be 6 to 7, but I have the same amount of energy as my younger foster brother. I am full of beans, but I play very well and politely. I do like to jump the fence, and wander the neighbours home, so a 6 foot fence, minimally, is a must if my yard is fenced. I am ok on a tether if my yard is not fenced. With my energy level, I may not be suitable for attached housing unless I have very active owners to keep me worn out!

I am currently being fostered with a 2 year old male dog, and two small humans. I can be grumpy upon initial meeting or on an off day, so you will need to understand when not to pester me. I seem to play better with female dogs, and busy environments stress me out. I would prefer a quieter, active home environment. I am ok with the 2 children in my foster home, but I will try to be sneaky and grab a snack from their hands when they aren’t looking. I will also eat muffins off the counter, and rummage through garbage when left alone, so it would be best if your garbage can was well hidden, and food out of reach. I can jump onto the counter or on to the top bunk, so out of reach means in cupboards with me!

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

I am neutered, up to date on all of my vaccinations and microchipped. I am ready to go and have been waiting for 3 months now!

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.

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.

KHLOE

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Khloe
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes, older

Hey, my name is Khloe and I am a fun-loving and energetic young female looking for an outdoor loving and active companion to spend my time with. If that sounds like you, please keep reading below!

I’m part deer! Ok, maybe I’m not, but I do mimic deer bounces when I bound around in the yard outside with my springs for legs. I bounce and bound when I run, play, and even when I walk. I just have so much fun and love life that I cannot contain my joy! I absolutely love other dogs, though I prefer males over females, and particularly those I can play a fast game of chase with. I am happy to wrestle for a short period but then want to continue the game of chase. I have not not been tested with smaller dogs. I am easy going with other larger dogs of both sexes and a variety of breeds, but silly, herding behavior from dogs who are immature or unsure will earn a correction from me.

I am house trained and very tidy in my kennel here at boarding, however was not house trained in my previous home or tidy in the shelter. I am comfortable and quiet in my kennel unless I notice people moving around to let dogs out for playgroups or get them ready for walks. Then I can be quite vocal in my excitement. When offered indoor playtime, I have shown some anxiety with being shut in the playroom. I have also destroyed doors when left alone in my previous home and in shelter. I

I know a few obedience commands – sit, down, give a paw – and love working for liver treats. I also know the word “treat.”I have become better about coming inside when playtime is over and I don’t resist going into my kennel. Boarding staff has sat with me in my kennel, hoping to make me more comfortable with people. I clearly have trust issues, but have relaxed enough to enjoy quiet pets and company and have even offered kisses this week. I am slow to warm up.

I have shown absolutely no aggression over my food bowl here in boarding, however I bit the assessment hand in the shelter quite hard. It is because of this uncertainty with food guarding that I am only recommended with children over 12. I am also obsessive around younger children according to my previous home.

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

KOBA

Available for Adoption/Foster

 

Name: Koba
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years
Cats: Untested
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hey, my name is Koba and I’m beyond handsome! Let me tell you about my EXTREME separation anxiety before you fall for me though first.

I’ve been raised as a pet and ideally, I need a home that will give me an outlet for my anxiety, with someone that is home all the time, and is able to accommodate my anxiety. You see, if you are not home with me, I get so anxious that I may go through doors or walls in search of you. I will also work myself into a state of urination, yelping, destruction of household things, etc. and will work myself into a state of diarrhea if confined to a small space like a crate. I do NOT like being alone. I follow my humans everywhere, and would love to go everywhere with my new humans as well! If you try to have some quiet time in a room by yourself with the door closed, don't be surprised if I cry or even open the door to come in and be with you… because I love your company. If someone is always home, I am a perfect gentleman and well-mannered, and many times, you may not even know I'm there. I do have my basic obedience training, and am just awesome in every aspect other than my separation anxiety.

If I am left outside during your absence, and do not have the space to run around freely, I will dig, bark, howl, and carry on. If someone is home though, I don’t try to escape my yard and can stay outside for long periods of time. I am definitely not suited to attached housing unless someone is home 100% of the time. I would probably do best in a rural setting where I can run my anxiety out in a fenced area without annoying neighbours. I have been tried in a crate, and due to my anxiety, it doesn’t work for me. I am house trained so long as I am not alone and anxious. I am also good at going over fences, so a 6ft fence is a minimum requirement for me.

I absolutely love humans of all sizes and ages, and I love going to the dog park to play with my friends. Unfortunately, I do not have another animal in my home to help keep me company. I’m not sure if it would help me, but I am quite open to that idea! I haven’t been around cats, so I am not sure how I would be. It’s probably best if I am not around cats though. Someone with anxious dog experience or someone whom is always home may be able to train me to be good with a cat, so that is at human discretion.

I am up to date on my vaccinations and I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed when I am more settled into my new home. My adopter will be provided with a microchip to have inserted by their veterinarian upon my adoption.

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.

LOGAN

Available for Adoption

Name: Logan
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 10+ years
Cats: Maybe
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hi there, I’m Logan and I’m searching for a forever home for my golden years. I was picked up as a stray 2.5 weeks ago. I think I was dumped because I’m older. My ideal home would have a doggie door and a fenced yard since I love to spend a lot of time outdoors, but like to come inside and spend time with my people too. If I don’t have a doggie door, I’ll need someone who doesn’t mind letting me in and out as I ask.

I’m estimated to be 10 or more years old, and I think I was an outdoor dog before. I am not used to human interaction, but I am learning to love it here in my foster home. It takes me a bit of time to warm up to new people. I am terrified of belts, so please be careful introducing me to objects that could cause me harm. If I spook, I will hide for a few days and not want any interaction. I do everything at my own pace, but who can blame me. I’m not a playful dog, but I am dog-friendly. I have not been around cats, but given my respect for dogs and my desire to keep to myself, I would likely good with cats as well. I haven’t been around kids either, but there are no noted concerns from my assessment that would affect my ability to be with respectful, older children.

I can house trained as long as you catch my subtle signals and let me out. I am ok in a crate and am starting to go in on my own, but I will fuss for the first half hour or so before I settle in for the night after the door is closed. I am otherwise silent. I would be fine in attached housing. I am underweight at the moment and need to gain more, but have started to gain weight. I am kind of a grazer when it comes to food, and I will not share my bowl when I am eating, but I am not food aggressive at all. I do not pull on the leash, in fact I trail behind on my walks. I don’t know any obedience commands, but I am not a trouble maker, other than I will search the table for some yummy people food.

I am up to date on my dhpp and bordatella vaccinations and I am microchipped. I am not neutered, and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding contract due to my age.

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.

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.

SWEETY

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Sweety
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 1.5 years
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hi, my name is Sweety and I was born on July 18 2018. I am an affectionate girl once I get to know you, but I do have some quirks. If you want 24/7/365 snuggles, then I am 100000% the girl for you! As my name indicates, I am absolutely sweet!

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

I was raised with cats, and I recently had a couple hour playdate with a cat, so I can go to a home with dog-savvy cats. I do like to chase them, so a savvy cat is a must. I was raised with children (and fostered with them before my last adoption) as well, HOWEVER, sudden sounds or touching makes me scream, turn, and stare. I should probably not be with really young kids until I am more socialized and desensitized. I do try to turn all my fears into play once I am more comfortable, so please give me a couple of months to really shine in your home.

I am so dependent and in need of human affection, that I have developed a case of separation anxiety. As a result, I am not suitable for attached housing if you are away for work. If you work from home and are almost always home, that is ideal! I will go in the crate, but I will scream non-stop while you are out of the home. I just need to know you are still there and will quiet down once you speak to me. I am very loud in my screaming, but due to my bad counter-surfing habits and desire to jump through windows to get to my people, I must be crated when you are away. Ideally, you’d never be away though.

Due to my anxiety, it is very hard to keep weight on me. I can also be picky with my food. It is important that my new human keeps on top of my eating due to my breed’s tendency to lose weight at an alarming rate, coupled with the anxiety.

I am microchipped, but I am not yet spayed. I will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and spay contract to be completed at the appropriate time following my next heat cycle, after I am settled into my new home and eating consistently.

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.

WAYLON

Available for Adoption

Name: Waylon
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Sex: Male
Age: 1 year
Cats: Yes
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hi everyone, my name is Waylon! I am an approximately 1 year old Siberian Husky! I’m now in search of the perfect forever to meet my needs.

I haven’t had the best start to my life yet. I was found as a stray in Windsor before my foster family took me in. Somewhere along the way I injured my front left leg. It never got the attention it needed, although it’s healed up now, just not properly. Now I have a front limp that limits my ability’s a bit. I do struggle with steps and take a bit longer getting up and around the house. Don’t let this upset you though! I’m still in very high spirits!

I absolutely love playing with other dogs, going on walks and meeting new friends at the dog park! I just get tired more quickly is all. My current foster home currently has 2 dogs and 1 cat, so I know how to share a home! I’m a a little shy when first meeting new humans. I do prefer the company of dogs a little more right now. I was previously in a foster home through my shelter, and that home had children and I liked them.

I do get a bit anxious in the house if I’m left completely alone, so a new home with a brother or sister dog for me is ideal. I’m still a puppy so I do get a bit mischievous when I’m bored inside, so keep an eye on me. You will want to crate me when you’re not home. I’m totally fine being in a crate but I can only hold potty for 4-5 hours before I start to have accidents. My foster family says I have so much potential and we are always working on my basic commands that I’m getting better everyday at!

I am a real gem of a dog if I do say so myself! I don’t think I will last up here on the adoption list for long, so get those applications in. Remember though, that preference will be given to homes with other dogs, and not on a first come, first served basis.

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

WILLOW

Available for Adoption/Foster

Name: Willow
Breed: Siberian Husky x Labrador Retriever
Sex: Female
Age: 9 years
Cats: No
Dogs: No
Kids: No

Hi there, I’m Willow and I’m searching for a forever home for my golden years. I am seeking a quiet home for my retirement, with no animals or children. I was born on December 16, 2010 and I have been with my current owner since I was 5 months old. Due to the arrival of a new baby in the home, my need for a new home is urgent. I have nipped at the baby, and throughout my life, I have had multiple tussles with the other dogs in my home. I haven’t been around cats either, so please no cats. I really do want to be the center of attention with my human please.

My owner is a trainer and a groomer, so I am very used to the whole grooming process, and I love it. I am groomed every 3 months or so and am well-kept. I know all my basic commands, and I am one of the rare ones that can be off-leash. I grew up on a farm at my owner’s side. I am a loyal companion, and would do well in this type of environment again. I was crated as a younger girl, but I am now left loose in the house and do fine for the long work day my owner has. I don’t like to be outside alone, but I will go out for potty by myself. I am house trained.

I am startled by sudden movements and loud noises, which is why the 1 year old baby in my home is setting me off. I need quiet. I cannot emphasize this enough. Perhaps a retired individual or couple without young children around the home. I’m not looking for an overly active home because I have a lame front leg and cannot go for long walks or exercise much. It was operated on 7 years ago, but it had no improvement.

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