Maeve is a grey and white 60lb (27kg) spayed female and just the prettiest lady you ever did see! At 5 years young, she still has plenty of spring in her step and spunk in her life to complete a family. Maeve is fully house trained  and head over heels for kids.

Due to her high prey drive and dominance, she is not suitable for a home with other dogs, cats and small animals.

With a little practice, Maeve will be perfectly mannered on leash. This comes easy as she is very eager to please for a cookie and belly rubs. She is perfect with “sit, down, and shake a paw. Maeve loves to be with her people and especially loves catching some air with her head out the car window!

Miko (Meeks): Siberian Husky (M) 2 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Miko (Meeks)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (Intact)
Age: 2 years
Cats: No/Not tested
Dogs: SELECTIVE – Loves female dogs, cannot share home with male dog
Kids: No

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Miko is a charming, smart and dedicated blue-eyed boy. He is a high energy dog, however, he will spend his whole day snoozing with his favourite toy as long as he has spent quality time with you playing and learning. He may come off shy at first, but once he gets to know you, his personality and love for you will radiate. He will become the most loving, affectionate and dedicated companion you will ever have. He is great with company and loves getting all the extra love and belly rubs from your friends. However, if he senses that something is not quite right, he will instinctively turn into a great guard dog.

Ideally for him, he needs an experienced home without young children and without another male dog. Due to his energy level, he requires a home with a contained back yard that he can explore and exercise in.  He has been through a lot as a puppy, as he was rescued from a bad home at just 6 months old. Most of his quirks and anxieties have been slowly trained out of his personality, however he can still exhibit slight resource guarding. When he exhibits this behaviour, he will respond to the commands “no” and “back up” which will allow you to remove the item from him. This trait can also be caused due to pent up energy. As long as Miko has had plenty of exercise it should be a rare occurrence.

He is extremely well behaved and will love practicing his tricks with you. He will heel, sit, stand up, lay down, shake paw (left and right), and place on command. His recall is also great within fenced areas, as long as he practices his commands daily. You do not need to worry about him pulling on his leash as he heels on command, and will sniff and explore on command as well (Cue: “go sniff”/“its ok”).

He is a healthy young boy, up to date on all his vaccinations, free of medical concerns, allergies or any food aversions. He currently eats Acana twice a day, and will bring his bowl to you throughout the day to ask for more.

Miko is an incredible young boy. Once you get to know him, he will be the best friend you could ever imagine. He will be adopted on a strict neuter/non-breeding contract.

Luna: Siberian Husky (F) 1 year 7 months – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Luna
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Intact)
Age: 1 year 7 months (DOB: 14 August 2017)
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: No

Luna is a sweet young dog who loves to play and run. she tends to jump on people sometimes so will need training to break this habit.  She is therefore not suited for small children due to jumping and mouthing.

She did tend to be a shy dog at first but she is now becoming more confident with both humans and other dogs. She is becoming a bit of an alpha female and she prefers to be the leader of the pack so you will need to establish your role immediately whilst she is at this phase of her development.

She loves treats so this will be a good training aid for rewards.  She is OK walking with the leash but will need some more work.  She cannot be allowed off-leash and has no recall, so she should only be allowed to free run in a fenced-in area.  She absolutely cannot live with cats, so no homes with cats.  She is not crate trained but she knows basic commands.

Luna is bi-eyed and has one blue eye and one brown.  She is currently intact, so will be adopted out on a strict non-breeding/spay contract if not done before adoption.  She is in good health.

Moose: Siberian Husky (M) 4 years old – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Moose
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: 4 years old
Cats: No – Not tested
Dogs: Good with dogs same size or larger
Kids: Good with children


LISTING FOR SHELTER SERVICE

Moose is a gorgeous Husky from Quebec. He was transferred to Etobicoke Humane Society because the shelter he was in had run out of space and his days were numbered. Moose has been well behaved and loves everyone and dogs he meets on his walks. He is very gentle when he plays with people and has a lot of energy. At the end of the day, he spends time napping at his foster family’s feet.

Moose is 4 years old and is healthy. He has been diagnosed with cataracts but he doesn’t need any treatment at this time and it doesn’t seem to make any difference to him. He has been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations and is microchipped.

Moose is looking for a forever home with a fully fenced yard where he can play and play and a family that is home more than not since he doesn’t like to be left alone.  We think he would be suited in a home with a dog of similar size but he hasn’t been cat tested so it wouldn’t be wise to place him with cats.

Luna: Siberian Husky (F) 11 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Luna
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 11 years
Cats: OK with indoor cats
Dogs: Yes – good
Kids: Yes – all ages

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Luna is a truly wonderful dog that we sadly need to find a new home for due to her human family’s health issues. She is very sweet and loving, and has never had any health issues of any kind. Luna is an extremely petite husky, weighing in at only 40 lbs. Luna is a very easy dog to love, and to live with.

Luna absolutely loves to be around people and other dogs. Ideally she would love a home where people are home during the day. Luna is great with kids, including young children and babies. She would be happy to have a human or canine brother or sister in the same household, OR to be an only child. She howls with excitement whenever people come to the door (making her a good ‘alarm’ dog), however she would not be a good guard dog as she loves all people including strangers!!! She gets very excited when meeting other dogs, and does best meeting them off leash as she immediately wants to roughhouse and chase which results in pulling and tangling of leashes if they are involved. Of course Luna loves to go on walks or to the dog park, but once she’s had enough exercise she loves to curl up and cuddle with people and watch TV. Luna loves the outdoors in all seasons. She likes to go lie in a sun patch, even on some of the hottest summer days.

Luna knows her basic commands such as OFF, SIT, STAY, COME, etc. but she doesn’t always listen, so she can’t be off leash anywhere near a road or open space. She walks well on a leash, sometimes with some minor pulling when you first start walking because she is so excited, or of course if she sees a squirrel! She has spent lots of time off leash up at the cottage where she happily wanders around a few fenced acres and comes back when she’s ready to rest and eat. She lives with an indoor cat and has done so for most of her life with no issues, however she does chase (and often catch) small prey in the backyard, so she might not be safe with an outdoor cat where her prey drive could be triggered. If you leave the room with delicious food on the table or counter, Luna sometimes can’t resist helping herself to a snack.

She currently sleeps on her own bed in the same room as her owner, and she knows never to go on the furniture. If you choose to invite her up however, she would be overjoyed to snuggle with you on the sofa or bed.

Luna has no allergies and likes lots of different foods. She is easy to feed, you can leave her food out and she will eat when she needs to without becoming overweight. She also loves to be the ‘pre wash cycle’ and lick off the human dishes before they go in the dishwasher! She loves to have rawhide as a treat, however she cannot have bones of any kind even ‘dog safe’ ones as she will chew them up and eat the whole thing and then have a lot pain digesting.

As a husky, Luna sheds her whole undercoat a couple times a year which means a lot of fur in your house and on your clothes. She also likes to howl and talk at times. Please make sure you are really okay with that before getting any husky!

Luna is spayed and her vaccines are up to date.

Nitro: Siberian Husky (M) 11 months – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Nitro
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (Intact)
Age: 11 months
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes – good
Kids: Not tested

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Nitro is a good-natured, medium energy level husky and being his current age, can still be a little mouthy when putting on his leash but this can be worked on with training.

He loves to play and loves his treat ball.  He is at the age where he is learning all the time and needs someone who can give him the exercise and mental stimulation he needs.  He is food/snack driven so this will be a good training tool for rewarding correct behaviour.  He loves going for long walks and being kept active, he’s great with all other dogs, big and small.  He has not been tested with children but because of the mouthing, no young toddlers/kids.

Nitro has been to puppy classes and knows some basic commands but would benefit greatly from continuing his training which also helps with bonding to a new family.  He does still tend to pull on the leash until he settles into the walk and again, this is something that can be worked on.  He is not fully crate trained – he will go in when the door is open but will cry when it is closed.  Again, with training and/or being fed in the crate, this can be worked on.  However, he does currently sleep in the bedroom.

He can show signs of food-guarding depending on who is feeding him – again this needs to be worked on and using the crate could be a good tool for both this and the crate training.  He’s shown some sensitivity to commercial dog foods and to chicken.  He is currently being fed on a diet with fish/vegetables.

Nitro is up to date on his vaccinations and apart from being slightly anaemic as a puppy he is in good health.  He will be adopted on a strict age-appropriate neuter/non-breeding contract.

Aurora: Husky x Malamute (F) 3 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Aurora
Breed: Husky x Malamute
Gender: Female (Intact)
Age: 3 years
Cats: No/Not tested
Dogs: Yes – good
Kids: Yes


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Aurora (Rory) is a 3 year old high energy husky x malamute. She is a wonderful dog when exercised. She is excellent with young kids and other dogs. She has not been tested with cats. She is free fed and had no issues with food aggression.

We originally rescued her at 8 months. She had been locked in a garage for that time with no training. She has come a long way since we got her, but we still find we are ill-equipped. She knows basic commands but can sometimes be too excited to listen. Rory needs a home where she can have lots of exercise and preferably experienced husky owners. She needs lots of attention, exercise, and firm training.

Aurora will need a FULLY fenced property. If unattended or in a yard with poor fencing she will find (or make) an escape. She is fully crate trained and at night she is in a crate in our room. She is potty trained but will occasionally have an accident if left inside for too long without a break (she will not go in her crate).

If she hasn’t been exercised she will find entertainment in typical husky fashion, sometimes involving toilet paper or shoes!

Aurora is currently intact, so will be adopted out on a strict non-breeding/spay contract.  She is due for her rabies vaccine.

Luna: Siberian Husky (F) 1 Year 4 months – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Luna
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Intact)
Age: 1 year 4 months
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: No


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Luna is a great dog loves to play and run, she loves to jump on people so will need training to break this habit and therefore not suited for small children due to jumping and mouthing.

At first she is a very shy dog, she was raised with another rescue dog and gets on well with other dogs but is more reserved towards people.  She is shy on first meeting and needs to build confidence to greet strangers so is better to be left until she approaches to meet you.

She loves treats so this will be a good training aid for rewards.  She cannot be let off leash so she will need a secured fenced in yard where she can be supervised so she doesn’t jump or dig.  She absolutely cannot live with cats, so no homes with cats.  She is crate trained and knows basic commands.

Luna is bi-eyed and has one blue eye and one brown.  She is currently intact, so will be adopted out on a strict non-breeding/spay contract if not done before adoption.  She is in good health and will be up to date on her vaccinations.

 

Lola: Siberian Husky (F) 9 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Lola
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 9 years
Cats: NO
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes – older due to shyness

Lola is a very calm and sweet girl. She is shy at first to strangers but soon warms up when she gets to know you and can be quite outgoing and friendly with confidence.  She has amazing blue and brown marble/pinto eyes.

She’s good with other dogs but does have the usual husky prey-drive so definitely no cats or small animals.  Lola doesn’t like to be left alone and can show signs of separation anxiety so she would be best suited to a home with another dog of similar size.  She is currently around 48.2lbs/21.8kg.  She is good in a crate and is better to be put in a crate when leaving her a while, since she has shown some signs of destruction in the past if left too long alone.  She is not very vocal but she does tell you when she is happy.

Lola will definitely need a contained yard as she has very little to no recall.  She is not great on commands but does know some French.  She would be a definite flight risk if left unsupervised or without containment so no off-leash for this girl.

Lola is a great traveller and will sit or lay down in the car quietly.  Again, due to her flight risk, she would need restraining with a leash in case of opening a door and jumping out.  She is quite a picky eater and will take time to eat her food.  If she is rehomed with another dog, it would be best to crate her for eating or put her in a separate room so her food doesn’t get stolen.  She’s not that interested with toys but does LOVE being outside.  She does tend to pull on her leash, like most huskies, so would need a bit of work to get her walking nicely.  She is still very active for her age!

Lola is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.  She will be microchipped prior to adoption.

Taiko: Husky/Malamute mix (M) 7 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Taiko
Breed: Husky/Malamute mix
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: 7 years old
Cats: Good
Dogs: Good
Kids: Good

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Taiko is a fun loving, high energy dog.  He loves to play outside, especially in the cooler months.  He loves the snow and to get to roam and sniff to his heart’s content.  He loves adults and kids and is always excited to meet new people and dogs.  He is very gentle and was 3 years old when we took our new baby home, absolutely no problems, he even slept at the foot of her crib during the young years.  He’s a big teddy bear.

Taiko did have an accident two years ago where he tore the cruciate ligament in one of his knees.  He had the best surgery available, a new hybrid process of the tibial plateau leveling osteotomy surgery which he was part of a study and the surgery was a great success.  He’s better than ever and you’d never know that he had the surgery.

Taiko is friendly with everyone, people, dogs, other types of animals.  He even once tried to play with a raccoon, he quickly realized the raccoon did not feel the same way. Taiko is always looking to have fun and exercise.  He loves to be able to run.

Taiko did have puppy training and when indoors and not distracted, he does follow basic commands such as sit and lie down.  He tends to pull on the leash when walked so a ‘Halty’ harness is used which solves the problem.  He sleeps indoors in our home, he has free roam of the house as he is very well behaved indoors.

Taiko is in very good health and had his last vaccines including rabies shot in June of 2016.  He currently eats Nutro grain-free dog food.
