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.

Leia: Husky (F) 7 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Leia
Breed: Husky/Northern Inuit
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 7 years
Cats: NO
Dogs: Yes but prefers males
Kids: Yes


Leia has a great personality when people are around her, she’s super quiet and calm all the time when she has company. She just can’t handle being alone without having a meltdown – she will pant and lick at her paws excessively until they are sore and will try and break out of her containment.  Because of her severe separation anxiety, she needs to be with someone who is at home all day or works from home or can take her to work.  She would definitely be better in a home with another dog/s.  She gets on with all dogs she meets and is very playful with everyone but will back off if a dog is not interested.

She can be quite vocal – she howls and sings when she’s happy to see you or when she knows she is going for a walk, she sometimes gets up on her hind legs to give hugs.

Due to her prey drive, she tends to chase cats and small animals so a home with no cats is necessary. She has no issues with children and she has been around kids from ages 5 to 9 years. She sleeps wherever she likes, which is on the floor and that’s her choice. She’s loves receiving affection and will stay on her back while your rub her belly indefinitely if you have that kind of stamina! In all honesty, the only bad thing about her is her inability to be alone and her destructive nature when she is, she will need someone to gradually teach her to use a crate and she is OK for short periods (such as eating, treats, etc).  She would be happier being left to roam with another male dog as company or even in a secure outside dog run as she loves being outdoors.  She has shown signs of resource guarding around other dogs – but not humans – so this will need to be watched for and to remove toys etc to no guarding takes place/

For Leia’s day to day she’s very calm when someone is around. She sometimes plays with a tennis ball but doesn’t overly look for a toy to play with, she would much rather go for a walk or even better, she loves to run in a fenced in area such as a dog park, she cannot be let offleash in open areas. She very much enjoys the water and often wants to be in it if she’s close enough. She’s very smart and takes everything in around her and she understands basic commands. She’s a very outside type of dog – in the summer she would rather be outside on the grass rolling around than wanting to come inside. She would make a good companion to someone who likes hiking and being outdoors. She keeps to herself most times but she always happy to receive affection from anyone who will give it to her.

Skye: Siberian Husky (F) 5 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Skye
Breed: Siberian Husky (50 lbs)
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 5 years (DOB 30 May 2014)
Cats: No
Dogs: Good
Kids: Yes – older
MEDICAL NEEDS


Skye is a gorgeous 5 year old girl who is spayed and up to date on all her vaccines. She’s great with other dogs, fine with strangers, and super with teens but she could unintentionally hurt a small child when she gets excited.  She is pretty sullen when left alone so would be better placed with someone who is home more often or has another dog as a companion.  We would not recommend a home with cats.

The owner’s husband (Skye’s primary care giver) passed away in July last year. Skye became distressed after his passing. In addition, Skye was left alone at home for long periods of time – up to 10 hours during the day. She was becoming destructive in the house and hard to manage. Her owner gave her to someone else who dumped her in a shelter a couple of days later.

Skye has not had any professional training but she does knows basic commands (sit, paw, lay down). Walks well on the leash and is good in the car but gets excited when getting in and out. She sleeps outside the bedroom door or on the couch but does need a night light on.  She does have some body sensitivity regarding being touched or brushed but she loves being petted around her head and ears.  She is better to be walked with a harness than a collar – her harness is kept on her in the house due to her body issues.  This, however  may improve once she is less anxious and settled.

Skye has never been aggressive about food but begs quite often when people are eating. Skye will steal food if she has the opportunity. Due to her current medication, she will require set feeding times and she is fed in her crate to help with crate training.

Skye has her full vet records and her vaccines are up to date. She has recently been spayed.  She does have occasional seizures but hadn’t had one in some time until she went into the shelter recently, which may have been caused by stress so is now taking anti-seizure medication which seems to be helping and she’s showing signs of improvement.  She is now in foster care with SHARP Rescue with 2 other dogs. Skye is a very sweet dog and she will make someone a great companion!

Skye will need an experienced owner who can give her a calm environment who is able to set a routine for her medication and plenty of exercise and work with her anxiety and grieving.

Shasta: Siberian Husky (F) 6 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Shasta
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (intact)
Age: 6 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Selective
Kids: Yes

Shasta is a great dog, she really is. She is a great listener and knows basic commands and loves to play fetch and go for walks.

Shasta LOVES winter time – it’s her favourite season, she loves to play in the snow and toss it around with her nose.  She is a runner and will bolt so cannot be let off leash, unless in a well fenced-in area and she will a dig a hole or two so will need to be supervised in the yard which will need to be fully fenced, preferably 6 feet minimum.

Shasta has always been around children and always gets along well – she enjoys gentle pets on her head and she gives ‘paw’.  She knows ‘sit, ‘shake paw’, ‘no’ and ‘come’. Shasta also enjoys treats whether it’s bones or meat of some sort.

She usually is a good walker but she can be a puller and take you for a walk instead so needs to be reminded of leash manners.  She would be a great companion for someone looking for love as she is very affectionate.  She has always been the only pet and she has been known to get along with certain dogs but not others, so would likely be best suited as the only dog in a home, or perhaps another dog with a calm personality, she would have to meet them first.  No cats or small animals to be around Shasta due to her breed’s strong prey drive.

Shasta is crate trained but no longer uses a crate, she is currently fed twice a day and has no allergies, medications or medical conditions.  Shasta enjoys the radio for noise when alone and she is used to a night light in the dark while sleeping.  She will need her vaccinations updating and will either be spayed prior to adoption or adopted on a strict spay/non-breeding contract.

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Cyrus is a wonderful, easy going, 8 year old friendly family dog who loves people and being outside. She was living in the country but just moved to the city.

She knows basic commands and is crate trained.  She is good in the car.  She can sometimes be a bit of a puller on a leash at first when she is excited during her walk but does settle down.  She is quite vocal and likes to sing!

No medical issues at all, and all vaccinations are up to date. She eats Fromm food and loves treats .

She lost her master last October and our family has downsized quite a bit with a very small backyard.  We are looking to find her a beautiful home because she is an amazing dog! She would be a great addition to family or couple.

Kiba: Siberian Husky (M) 6 years – ADOPTED

ADOPTED!

Name: Kiba
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 6 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Not good with other dogs
Kids: Good


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Kiba is not adjusting well to the smaller space of moving to a condo and misses having a backyard to run and play during the day so needs to find a new home with more outdoor space and/or outdoor lifestyle.

Kiba lived with 2 cats and a boxer for a couple years when he was a puppy. However he has been an only dog for 2 years and he has become used to being on his own and not having to share attention. He would do better with a family that has no other pets.

Kiba is not crate trained.  He knows basic commands and is generally well-behaved but would benefit from some one-to-one training which would also help with bonding with his new owners.

Kiba has no medical conditions and is not on any medications.  He is up to date on vaccinations, as well as flea/tick/heartworm prevention and has full medical history.

He is currently fed 3 times a day on Acana.
