Ares: Siberian Husky (M) 6 years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Ares
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 6 years
Cats: OK
Dogs: Good
Kids: Very Good


Ares is a medium energy, smaller built boy – he loves action but knows when to settle. He is quite independent- not huge on cuddles but will follow you if you leave a room. He is quite anxious – loud, sudden noises will make him flinch. Also, if you go to pet him too quickly he can also get startled. No history of abuse from what we know, he is just always anxious. He cannot be left alone in the home – it is best that he lives with a family with children and/or an adult at home.

He is very gentle, keeps to himself. He loves to play fetch with a tennis ball or branch. He loves chewing on tennis balls and rawhide. He also loves belly rubs. He’s not much of a hugger – he will give a non-aggressive growl if he’s smothered/hugged too much. He shows signs of separation anxiety – so being home alone he may chew on a shoe if he is very anxious, or if the garbage has been left out he will go through it. No history of bites/aggression. Every time he sees a dog on a walk he will cry to smell them, then he will be on his independent way. He wants to sniff every dog and human he comes into contact with!

Ares knows basic commands but these need to be given firmly as he’s stubborn.  He will initially pull on his harness out of excitement, but once his energy is depleted he walks nicely to heel. NO CRATES for him as this stresses him. He gets car sick on long rides but is great to take anywhere with you, just make sure not to feed him before you leave. He will sleep in his bed near you in the bedroom. Ares is currently fed about 3 times daily. He is very picky with dog food, he likes change and will get bored of the same food.

His new home should have a fenced yard, with a family that has previous or current experience with huskies and/or is looking specifically for a husky. Children and other dogs are preferred as he loves company and the hustle and bustle of a family.

All his vaccinations are up to date. He will need a microchip.

Charlie: Siberian Husky (M) 2 years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Charlie
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (intact)
Age: 2 years
Cats: Unknown/Not advised
Dogs: Good
Kids: Older – due to jumping up


Charlie is a friendly guy with normal energy levels – a good walk or play time about an hour is fine.  He walks well on leash, knows sit and stay, is good in the car and a very good inside dog. He is very well mannered, loves toys.

Charlie came to his current foster as a stray. He had been given away by his original owner to someone else who never looked for him after he ran away. His first owner was tracked down and able to give his current foster details of his background.

Charlie was a house dog and was loved (and it shows). The original owner cannot take him back as he has gone away for work, his parents also couldn’t take him so he was surrendered.

Charlie is a typical 2 year old dog loves to play and go for a good walk, he was never an outside dog, he is so well mannered inside, loves to sleep on the sofa, loves his toys.  He hates to be tied outside. He’s never crated, has no food aggression, he eats when he wants to and soft mouth when taking treats. He’s currently on kibble and homemade food.

Charlie will need a secure, fenced yard otherwise he will try to escape and follow his nose and roam.  He will make a great family pet with older kids or a single parent.  He has come from a single parent home but is well socialised

Charlie is in good health, weighs about 57 pounds and was vaccinated as a puppy but not currently up to date.  He will need vaccinations and neutering. The current foster can work with the interested adopter for this as they have a good price at their clinic.  The foster can also help coordinate transport.

Neeko: Alaskan Husky (M) 6½ years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Neeko
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Gender: Male
Age: 6½ years
Cats: OK, under supervision
Dogs: No
Kids: No


His name is Neeko he is a male Alaskan husky, he’s 6 years old turning 7 in August.

He is ok with all the cats he has been around but has some issues with other dogs – he is a nervous dog and doesn’t like to be approached by other dogs at certain times and reacts out of fear, but has also got along with many as well. Because of this, he is better off in a single dog home.

He is not good with kids, very nervous around them and has nipped at my son – which is why I am needing to rehome him.

He is a fun loving dog loves hikes and walks. He is super intelligent can sit, lay down, shake both paws, high ten, play dead if pretend shot at, says hello and loves to play hide and seek. He is affectionate with me but not with strangers, as he is wary around them at first (again with the nervousness), but can come around.

His vaccines aren’t up to date, he needs rabies vaccine. He needs to be slowly introduced to other dogs and people. He is leash trained and loves to go on nature hikes. He is protective of his belongings – toys, sticks, food etc so will need someone who can deal with resource guarding.

Zarek: Siberian Husky (M) 2½ years

Name: Zarek
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 2½ years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes

Hi, my name is Zarek and I’m estimated to be about 2-3 years old, but no one will really know for sure since I was originally a stray. I am microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. I am not yet neutered and will be adopted on a strict neuter contract.

I’ve been a sled dog for the last 2 years, but I could also be a pet, as long as there is a high fence, as I am a high jumper.  I also love water, so any swimming pools will need to be fenced to keep me safe and out of them when not using them under supervision.

I’m very good with dogs, but not good with cats. I am super affectionate with humans of all sizes! I am not house trained, but I am crate trained. I enjoy going for car rides.

I’ve done lure coursing and dock diving, I like to keep busy and would love to do more sports – perhaps we could try agility?  I do need more obedience training or classes to help with my leash manners and overall general training, which would help me build a bond with you.

Teddy: Husky mix (M) 1 year and 3 months – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Teddy
Breed: Husky mix
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: 1 year and 3 months
Cats: Not tested
Dogs: Good with all sizes
Kids: Not tested

*Courtesy Listing for Shelter*

Teddy is extremely loving and is very playful with both of his dog house mates, Loki (mastiff/ boxer) and Zeus (jackhuahua). He will joyfully stay by your side for hours, in exchange for a few head rubs, but is most happy when he gets to run out in the country and play tag with his friends.

He requires an owner who is experienced and patient, who will be willing to guide him in proper walking etiquette as he tends to pull and have slight leash frustration when another dog is close. Since 3 weeks of having him, he has impressed us with his fast learning capabilities and mannerism.

Teddy is up to date with his routine vaccines.  He is good on a scheduled feed, no allergies, and not a picky eater.

Teddy loves to chew bones! Definitely a work dog who requires a good amount of mental stimulation and physical exercise. He is wary of other strangers and requires a patient owner who will provide slow introductions. Once he has been accustomed to his surroundings and a consistent schedule, he can be your greatest best-friend!

Teddy is good with commands, and learns very quickly. He learned “go to your bed” and “paw” in one day. He is good at staying by your side and being called back when he is running with his friends at a distance in the country. He sits or lays down for most of the car ride. He is crate-trained and often goes in there on his own to chew his bones or when the household quiets down. He requires training walking on a leash.

Spike: Siberian Husky (M) 7 years

Name: Spike
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 7 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes – see description
Kids: No

My name is Spike and I am in need of an experienced adopter. I am a project dog. I have never been given rules or restraint, so when I’m around food or toys I tend to protect and can bite. I know some basic commands like sit and paw. I pull on leash.

I can also be very vocal if left alone at first, but I do quiet down after a week or so once I am settled. I am good in a crate and love to travel in a car. I am food aggressive and resource possessive with humans and other dogs. I’ve been improving with my fosters and can now eat my food while being pet and respect their rules. Please do not reach for my food when I am eating, or reach for me while I am eating. I cannot be fed in a crate or anywhere confined, or I will guard all of it. I am best fed in the wide open, and tethered to an object so that if I decide you’re too close, you can get away safely.

I eat my dinner very quickly, however my kibble diet isn’t agreeing with my stomach here that much, so I think I need grain free food. I have been outdoors my whole life, so would prefer an outdoor or indoor/outdoor home. Please no apartments, condos. etc.

While I am adjusting to my new temporary life, I am very cautious and nervous of female humans and act fearful but no one knows why that is. I seem to be OK with human males and show more affection towards them. I do love being with other dogs, both big and medium and being affectionate with that person who I choose to trust. Please no kids due to my guarding. Please no cats!

I will be placed on a strict non-breeding contract and neuter contract. I am microchipped and up to date on vaccines.

Tobi: Siberian Husky (M) 1 year – ADOPTION PENDING

Name: Tobi
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 1 year
Cats: With caution
Dogs: Yes
Kids: No

I’m the super adorable Tobi! But let me stop you there. Do not fall for me simply because of my looks.

I am in need of an experienced FEMALE adopter and I am a project dog. I have never been given rules or restraint, and so when I am given them, I do not act appropriately. I mouth very hard when I do not get my way. I am not a fan of having my collar handled or being leashed. I do not like men.

I can also be very vocal with hard eyes and stiff body if I don’t like something. For instance, I am crate trained and will go right in, but on occasion, I will lunge at the door as it is being latched shut. I am food aggressive and resource possessive with humans and other dogs.

That being said, I LOVE other dogs and just want to play! I do hump other dogs, but I will hopefully outgrow this as I exit the teenage phase of life in a few months and get neutered at an appropriate time. I even lived with cats for a month, so could live with husky experienced cats with caution. I am quiet when alone for the most part.

I do walk well in crowds of dogs and people on a short leash, however when not in a crowd, I pull on leash. I know how to sit. I am house trained, but I will mark. I am located in Tweed, ON and will be placed on a foster-to-adopt contract until my neuter can be completed in a few months’ time at a more appropriate age and when my behaviour is more settled.

I am microchipped and will be vaccinated for rabies as of February 2018.

Tessa: Siberian Husky (F) 12 years – ADOPTION PENDING

Name: Tessa
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Female (spayed)
Age: 12 years
Cats: With caution
Dog: Yes – large, submissive
Kids: No

Hi everyone my name is Tessa. Don’t let my older age fool you – I still have lots of energy to burn and I’ll keep you running around with me and on your toes. As you can see, that also includes brushing and grooming me!

I am a lot of fun, however very unpredictable. Please, please do not ever touch my collar area! Please don’t pester me while I am eating/having a treat. Please muzzle me for grooming as it really annoys me. I am easily adaptable and quiet for the most part and recently lived in an apartment successfully for a brief period of time.

Even though I am 12 years old, I beg you to keep up with me on walks! I pull on the leash so it is up to you to keep me in control and reined in. I know how to sit. I am OK with larger and quieter dogs but I do not like smaller dogs. I am too unpredictable and sensitive to handling for children and have bitten them multiple times when they tried to catch me by my collar.

My favourite toys are balls. I can play by myself with a ball for hours, but I also like playing ball with humans too. Tennis balls don’t last me long, but hard rubber balls do well. They don’t even need to squeak or make noise, but it’s definitely a bonus if they do!

I am house trained, but can piddle due to spay incontinence. I am crate trained, but only to the side door of a double door wire crate. There is just something about going in the end door of a crate that I don’t like. I am also non-destructive when left loose all day.

I am spayed and microchipped. I am house trained. I am located in Tweed, ON. In lieu of an adoption fee, a donation towards my care is greatly appreciated.

Aspen: Siberian Husky (M) 4 years – ADOPTION PENDING

Name: Aspen
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: OK
Kids: No

Hi, my name is Aspen. I am a 4 year old neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated male Siberian Husky.

I am not your average, cuddly pet. I am making big improvements on my meeting strangers, but please do not rush me into meeting. I am no longer lunging and growling at every stranger that approaches, but this has taken me 6 months to learn with my foster family.

Once I am comfortable, I play fetch! I will bring my toy to you, drop it at your feet, and back away for you to grab my toy to toss. Please do not grab it unless I bring it to you and back away. Please do not bother me when I am eating either. I know my basic commands, and am house and crate trained. I am also muzzle trained for things that require major handling and/or restraint – like grooming, baths, nail trims, etc.

I am making huge improvements in every aspect and my life, and my foster home couldn’t be more proud! I am not for the inexperienced owner however, so despite all my improvements, please do not apply unless you have loads of experience with dogs who are not fans of meeting new people. Even once I am comfortable at home, it is recommended to put me away when strangers come over until I start really opening up to you and getting truly comfortable.

I am located in Tweed, ON and my adoption fee is $400.
