9 Siberian Huskies/Alaskan Malamutes (M & F) – ages 5 years & 8 years


SHARP has been asked for assistance in placing 9 huskies needing homes due to family issues. The dogs are all currently located in Whitehorse, Yukon but transport can be arranged to Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver (possibly further east for the right home).

Assistance is also required for food and vetting whilst they are in temporary foster care – all dogs will be spayed/neutered if not already done. The group includes a mother, father and offspring siblings. If you can help with donations or by sharing to get these dogs new homes.

Mac: Husky/Shepherd (M) 8 years – LISTING FOR SHELTER SERVICE

Name: Mac
Breed: Husky/Shepherd mix
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 8 years
Cats: NO
Dogs: Yes – large, no smaller dogs
Kids: Older – teens

LISTING FOR SHELTER SERVICE

This handsome dog’s name is Mac, and he is Fredericton’s latest dog in need of a forever home.

Mac is an (almost) 8 year old Husky/Shepherd mix, and weighs in at approximately 115 pounds. Mac has been well cared for throughout his life as a family dog, and is now looking for the perfect home to spend the rest of his golden years.

Mac requires a home able to provide him with the mental and physical stimulation he needs. Aside from early signs of arthritis in his hips, Mac is healthy and up to date on all vaccinations. Mac does suffer from anxiety and can be destructive when left alone during the day all by himself. For this reason, we would love to find Mac a home where he will have a human companion by his side throughout the day.

Mac will wander if not leashed, and therefore we are looking for a home with a fenced-in yard. Mac does well with other large dogs, and we think having a dog-sibling would be great for Mac to help him handle his anxiety, especially when left alone. Mac does have a strong prey drive and given his large size, he would not do well in a home with cats or other small animals. Mac also pulls when walking on leash, therefore his next owner will need to be able to handle walking a dog of his size. Mac should not go to a home with young children.

Once Mac warms up to you and forms a bond, he is a loving dog who just wants to spend his time with his person.  Mac is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.

  • Located in Fredericton NB – adoption fee, please enquire
  • With rescue, needs foster or adopter
  • Looking for a home since September 2019

If you or someone you know can provide the loving home Mac deserves, or if you are looking for more information, please email the shelter direct:

Juno: Husky/mix (M) 1½ years

Name: Juno
Breed: Husky/mix
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 1½ years (DOB 22nd Dec 2017)
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes – larger, no small dogs
Kids: No

Juno is a 1½ year old Husky mix, possibly shepherd. He’s very nice and friendly, but also very hyper and untrained. He seems friendly with other dogs, he’s probably too much for small animals and kids.  Definitely no cats or offleash.

Juno would be best suited to a home that can give him one-to-one training.  He is food motivated and eager to please.  He needs to learn how to be a dog with proper training and manners.  He knows some basic commands and will sit nicely for treats.  He is learning not to jump up or be mouthy which he tends to do when he is excited and wants to play.

Juno has shown some resource guarding for food when he was in the shelter. He’s never showed any kind of aggression with people (other than resource guarding) or other dogs. He’s very friendly and loves to play. He isn’t too bad on leash and he really enjoys going for long walks. Juno is not suitable for a home with small dogs, small animals or young kids.  He would love a home with lots of outdoor time and would make a great hiking partner.  Juno is very strong and will need an experienced and firm owner.

Juno is neutered, up to date on vaccines and parasite preventatives.  He is a very healthy boy with lots of energy.

  • Located in Alliston, ON – $400 adoption fee
  • In foster, needs adopter
  • Looking for a home since August 2019
