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.

For further information, please contact: sharprescuecanada@gmail.com or send in an Application Form

Donations can be sent to: https://www.gofundme.com/f/u9v8x82k and please mention it is for the Whitehorse 9 dogs to go direct to their care.

Please note these dogs:

  • are mainly ideal for active persons and/or loving families
  • need large amounts of exercise and care
  • are primarily kept outside and can be used for recreational dogsledding/ski-joring/hiking
  • most would not fair well in a multi-dog home and not good with small animals or cats
  • can be placed individually or in groups together
  • there is one bonded pair (male and female) that would do better placed together
  • none are crate trained

  • Siberian Husky/Alaskan Malamute

  • 5 years old
  • A highly dedicated and powerful puller
  • Trained wheel dog

Juri would pair well with another dog, he’s very easy going. He is not completely house broken so that will need some training but he will figure it out. He is pretty quiet. He will pull apart chain link if he finds a weak spot but overall he is very calm and not an escape artist. He is in between a Malamute and a Siberian for size. He has been losing a little bit of weight with being on weight management food. He will need leash training but as long as it’s put higher on the neck he adapts well and listens.

Juno: Husky/mix (M) 2 years

Name: Juno
Breed: Husky/mix
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 2 years (DOB 22nd Dec 2017)
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes – larger, no small dogs
Kids: No

Juno is a 2 year old Husky mix, possibly shepherd. He’s very nice and friendly, but also very hyper and untrained. He’s 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 and where he can spend time outside.  He would actually prefer to live outside than in the house and a dog run with dog house would be ideal for him.  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.  He loves his crate and travels well in the car.

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.
