Hudson: Siberian Husky (F) 7 years – LFO SERVICE

Name: Hudson
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (spayed)
Age: 7 years (DOB 12th Dec 2011)
Cats: No/not tested
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Hudson is a 7 year old spayed female who was bought as a pup. She is good with all dogs and good with babies and children – however she could knock over a child when hyper, but she is very aware and it doesn’t happen all the time at our house but could see it being a potential to be aware of.

Hudson is a very happy, high energy dog. She needs lots of space to run – she loves to run on trails and fenced open property. She does not walk well on a leash at all and does pull hard. She does not like car rides – she has very high anxiety in all cars. Hudson is not a barker – she only very rarely barks when she is startled at night time and it’s only a one off. She does not bark at the door etc. She’s very friendly to meet people and occasionally jumps up on people when she likes them. She is protective of her environment around other dogs. For example, if we are dog sitting another dog, she will gather all of her toys and guard them on her bed, (same goes with her food). When she gets excited around people she likes to run very fast in circles.

She was not formally trained but she does know basic commands – sit, stay, lay down, paw and sometimes roll over. She was crate trained as a puppy. She is 100% house trained and no accidents in the house.

She must be on grain free food. She was on Taste of the Wild (her favourite flavour is roasted fowl) food for 6½ years and we just switched her to Diamond grain free food and she seems to like it as well. She is free fed and picks away at her food throughout the day. She likes to eat the majority of her food at night time.

She was spayed when she was 2 years old. All of her vaccinations, heartworm, etc were updated for her first 5 years of life. She has not received any vaccinations and/or heartworm since 2015 so they will need updating. We have a record of all her vaccinations. She has never had any medical issues.

Lexi: Siberian Husky (F) 6½ years – LFO LISTING

Name: Lexi
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (spayed)
Age: 6½ years (DOB 12th Jan 2013)
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes – larger breeds
Kids: No

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Lexi is highly energetic, alert, responds to all sounds and smells and is very attuned to her surroundings. She is very playful with her owners, their family and friends, enjoys long walks (leashed), enjoys chasing any object (balls, toys, sticks) and returns them to the person throwing the object. As long as Lexi has exposure to regular fresh air and twice daily activity/walks, she is content to relax with her owners. Lexi succeeds with regular routine, outdoor physical exercise and the presence of a strong male figure (she is accustomed to and best responds to a strong male owner). Lexi is generally a quiet dog – she does not bark or whine unnecessarily. She is quiet unless troubled/upset at which time she will express herself audibly to get attention.

Lexi has never lived with another dog. She is very playful with another Siberian Husky (male) who lives in our neighbourhood. Lexi appears to prefer large dogs rather than small or medium dogs. She either ignores other dogs or responds if the other dog repeatedly barks at her. Generally, Lexi approaches other dogs with curiosity, unless the other dog is on the offensive at which point, she may bark back.

Lexi has never lived with small or young children. She does not seem to care for small or medium sized children and, consequently, we avoid these interactions because she is not acclimatized to how children play. She is happy to play with adults. With family and friends Lexi behaves well and she will sit with the group quietly. Lexi does not exhibit any behaviour problems with people that she knows; however, Lexi can become protective of her home, food/treats and family if approached by strangers unexpectedly. Lexi does not care for strangers or small children who unexpectedly enter the scene. On those occasions, Lexi tends to bark and jump and may exhibit anger if troubled. Due to her strong reactions/protectiveness with strangers, Lexi wears a muzzle for public walks and must be supervised and leashed at all times when outside of the home.

Lexi has basic training and attended puppy classes. She is not crate trained. She enjoys car rides and is well behaved in a vehicle. She is easy to brush and bathe. Lexi is in ideal health and up to date with all vaccinations. She is spayed and microchipped.

We love Lexi very much and believe that it is in her best interests to be placed with someone who has the time, outdoor space and energy to incorporate her into their lives. Sadly, our lives have been touched with serious health crisis making it no longer possible for us to care for Lexi.

Meika: Siberian Husky (F) 8 years – LFO SERVICE

Name: Meika
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (spayed)
Age: 8 years (DOB: October 2010)
Cats: NO
Dogs: Not good with all/small dogs – prefers males/single dog home
Kids: NO

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Meika is an easy-going, friendly dog with adults. She is relaxed in the home, but enjoys going for walks and runs outdoors.

Meika is very unpredictable with other dogs. At times, she gets along well and other times, she is aggressive/dominant. It appears that Meika does better with male dogs. Meika is more likely to be aggressive toward dogs when on leash. Meika has a strong prey drive, so very small dogs can be at risk, as well as cats and other small creatures. Meika has always done well meeting adults. She enjoys the company of adults, but also enjoys her independence. Meika can be stubborn and have some difficulty listening, but with persistence, she will eventually listen. She enjoys being outdoors; particularly in the warmer months. Meika also enjoys being outside in the winter, but only for walks or play. She does not enjoy just sitting outside in the winter, like she does in the warmer months. Meika enjoys car rides and going for longs walks.

Meika knows the commands, sit and shake a paw. She does well on a leash when using a harness. She is crate trained and does well in the car. Meika sleeps wherever she chooses – most often the floor or the couch in the living room.

Meika does guard her food around other dogs. However, she has never shown aggression around food with humans. Meika is not picky and does not appear to have any allergies.

All vaccinations are up to date. Meika has bouts of bronchitis that is easily treated with a small dose of prednisone.

Loki: Siberian Husky/Lab (M) 8 years – LFO SERVICE

Name: Loki
Breed: Siberian Husky/Lab mix
Gender: Male (Neutered)
Age: 8 years (DOB: 22nd September 2010)
Cats: Maybe – Has lived with a cat before but would need supervision around new cats
Dogs: Very good
Kids: Very good

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

This is Loki. He’s incredibly gentle, great with kids and other dogs, and a fantastic running partner. He’s up to date on Rabies, DAPPv, Leptospirosis, is treated yearly for ticks, and has yearly heartworm, tick, and Lyme screening.

He walks well beside you, and does not pull on the leash, and he has a good recall when off leash (although it can falter at times if there’s a lot of stimulation…SQUIRREL!). He absolutely loves trail running, and has been conditioned for long distance running, although I can tell he’s been slowing down a bit this past year. He’s been surrounded by children since he was brought home as a puppy, and loves to cuddle up with them on the floor. He’s very submissive with other dogs. He has lived with a cat before who had issues with him, but he was fine with the cat. No other cat exposure so this would have to be monitored/supervised.

His feeding is pretty unstructured. His bowl is filled when it’s empty, and he eats as he likes. He usually eats more during the winter months, and less in the summer. He’s not overly picky on what he eats, and will go counter surfing if you leave him alone around food. He does eat on a set schedule if he’s around other dogs, but that may result in him not eating for a day or so, but he eventually makes up for it.

When I’m with him, he’s the best dog I could ask for! His living situation changed a few years ago. He used to have someone who worked from home, with children most days, so was never left alone for prolonged periods of time. He always had social interactions. Unfortunately he’s now left alone for large parts of the day, and he hasn’t adapted well. He suffers from some mild separation anxiety. The worst of his issues occur doing during bad weather (thunder), or fireworks, when he’s alone. He can become destructive (destroying his bed, tipping over food dishes, etc), and while he’s house trained all other times, he will often relieve himself if alone during the weather.  He was crate trained as a puppy, but recent attempt to re-crate him have only increased his anxiety.

I can’t give him the attention he needs by myself anymore, and he’s suffering for it. He would thrive so much more in a more social environment. Someone who works from home, or even someone with other dogs. I know he’ll be happier with someone who has more flexibility to give him the attention he needs. It’s been such a difficult time making this decision, but I’m hoping it works out best for him in the end.

Baltimore: Siberian Husky (M) 2 years

Name: Baltimore
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 2 years
Cats: NO
Dogs: No smaller dogs
Kids: Older

LISTING FOR SHELTER SERVICE

Meet Baltimore, a stunning and friendly 2 yr old husky who is currently with Ottawa Dog Rescue (also known as O-Town Dog Rescue) but able to be transferred to SHARP for suitable foster or adopter.

This boy is so much fun – a typical husky who loves the great outdoors and is enjoying his time at his current foster location.

Baltimore is fully vetted (neutered, DHPP, Rabies, heart worm and lyme negative).  He is great with people but needs someone with husky experience.  He does have prey drive so he is not recommended with small animals, cats and dogs smaller than himself.  He is fine with dogs his size or larger with proper introductions.

He would do great with an active adventurous family and he also likes to pull the sled or would be able to run in harness such as bikejoring. He is good with one or two dogs but a pack is too much for him at this point. He is a loud and outgoing player with lots of vocalizing and rough paw slamming but is learning boundaries. After a good hike or run he loves to sit quietly outside and observe things.

SHARP Adoption/Foster Application

Skye: Siberian Husky (F) 5 years

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.
