Moose: Siberian Husky (M) 4 years old – COURTESY POST

Name: Moose
Breed: Siberian Husky
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: 4 years old
Cats: No – Not tested
Dogs: Good with dogs same size or larger
Kids: Good with children


LISTING FOR SHELTER SERVICE

Moose is a gorgeous Husky from Quebec. He was transferred to Etobicoke Humane Society because the shelter he was in had run out of space and his days were numbered. Moose has been well behaved and loves everyone and dogs he meets on his walks. He is very gentle when he plays with people and has a lot of energy. At the end of the day, he spends time napping at his foster family’s feet.

Moose is 4 years old and is healthy. He has been diagnosed with cataracts but he doesn’t need any treatment at this time and it doesn’t seem to make any difference to him. He has been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations and is microchipped.

Moose is looking for a forever home with a fully fenced yard where he can play and play and a family that is home more than not since he doesn’t like to be left alone.  We think he would be suited in a home with a dog of similar size but he hasn’t been cat tested so it wouldn’t be wise to place him with cats.

If you’re interested in meeting Moose please submit an online adoption application at: https://etobicokehumanesociety.com/dogs/

If you have questions about Moose or the adoption process please email the shelter direct: ptr.ehs@gmail.com

Meeko: Malamute/Husky (M) 4 years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Meeko
Breed: Malamute/Husky
Gender: Male (Neutered)
Age: 4 years
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: Yes


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Meeko is a wonderful Malamute/Husky, he’s 4 years old and super healthy, he is also neutered.  He’s a social guy, friendly with other dogs but due to his high prey-drive he would not suit a home with cats.

Meeko is being rehomed due to his owner moving to the city (Montreal) and Meeko is unhappy.  He needs a home with more space, preferably in the countryside, and will need a secure fenced yard.  He knows basic commands (French).

Meeko is currently in foster at boarding kennels until he finds a new home.  He is fed twice a day (around 5 cups) and is currently on Acana.

Meeko is up to date on all his vaccinations including Bordetella and Rabies.

Luna: Siberian Husky (F) 11 years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Luna
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 11 years
Cats: OK with indoor cats
Dogs: Yes – good
Kids: Yes – all ages

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Luna is a truly wonderful dog that we sadly need to find a new home for due to her human family’s health issues. She is very sweet and loving, and has never had any health issues of any kind. Luna is an extremely petite husky, weighing in at only 40 lbs. Luna is a very easy dog to love, and to live with.

Luna absolutely loves to be around people and other dogs. Ideally she would love a home where people are home during the day. Luna is great with kids, including young children and babies. She would be happy to have a human or canine brother or sister in the same household, OR to be an only child. She howls with excitement whenever people come to the door (making her a good ‘alarm’ dog), however she would not be a good guard dog as she loves all people including strangers!!! She gets very excited when meeting other dogs, and does best meeting them off leash as she immediately wants to roughhouse and chase which results in pulling and tangling of leashes if they are involved. Of course Luna loves to go on walks or to the dog park, but once she’s had enough exercise she loves to curl up and cuddle with people and watch TV. Luna loves the outdoors in all seasons. She likes to go lie in a sun patch, even on some of the hottest summer days.

Luna knows her basic commands such as OFF, SIT, STAY, COME, etc. but she doesn’t always listen, so she can’t be off leash anywhere near a road or open space. She walks well on a leash, sometimes with some minor pulling when you first start walking because she is so excited, or of course if she sees a squirrel! She has spent lots of time off leash up at the cottage where she happily wanders around a few fenced acres and comes back when she’s ready to rest and eat. She lives with an indoor cat and has done so for most of her life with no issues, however she does chase (and often catch) small prey in the backyard, so she might not be safe with an outdoor cat where her prey drive could be triggered. If you leave the room with delicious food on the table or counter, Luna sometimes can’t resist helping herself to a snack.

She currently sleeps on her own bed in the same room as her owner, and she knows never to go on the furniture. If you choose to invite her up however, she would be overjoyed to snuggle with you on the sofa or bed.

Luna has no allergies and likes lots of different foods. She is easy to feed, you can leave her food out and she will eat when she needs to without becoming overweight. She also loves to be the ‘pre wash cycle’ and lick off the human dishes before they go in the dishwasher! She loves to have rawhide as a treat, however she cannot have bones of any kind even ‘dog safe’ ones as she will chew them up and eat the whole thing and then have a lot pain digesting.

As a husky, Luna sheds her whole undercoat a couple times a year which means a lot of fur in your house and on your clothes. She also likes to howl and talk at times. Please make sure you are really okay with that before getting any husky!

Luna is spayed and her vaccines are up to date.

Klaus: Husky x Chow (M) 2 years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Klaus
Breed: Husky x Chow mix
Gender: Male (Neutered)
Age: 2 years (DOB: 2 September 2016)
Cats: No
Dogs: No/Selective – dislikes small dogs
Kids: No/not tested


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Klaus is a handsome, healthy, 2 year old, neutered, 30kg male.  Klaus would benefit living with a pet-free and childless home with a more energetic owner who is home all day.  Because Klaus has never been tested with or around young children, use extra caution.  Klaus plays very rough with other dogs, and he dislikes small dogs so he would need to be controlled and supervised when around them and not let off leash.  Smaller animals can bring out his prey drive randomly. If possible it would be best to avoid them.

Klaus loves to go on long walks and excursions whenever possible.  He enjoys retrieving the ball and dropping it at your feet. Klaus will stand still to be washed, and raises his feet at the door to towel off his dirty paws after being outside. He has had minimal exposure to swimming, but has no fear of water. He enjoys a good towel rub to dry off after rain or wading in a kiddie pool. He enjoys being brushed. Loves getting his ears rubbed and his chest.  However, He does not like being grabbed around his waist.

Klaus wears a muzzle at the vet, and during nail trimming situations, as he doesn’t immediately trust strangers touching him. He gladly chews his toys while you hold it, takes treats gently from your hand, he has not shown any food, or toy resource guarding, outside of his crate. He does seem to prefer to be indoors more than being outdoors; he enjoys human companionship all the time. He has never tried to escape the fully fenced yard, and has never dug holes. He does however bark at people who walk past the yard.  Klaus is easily distracted outdoors so needs to be kept supervised whilst in the yard.

Klaus is clean, does not potty inside the house.  He is not crated at night; he sleeps with his owner in the bed, usually at the foot of the bed.  He has dog beds, but never sleeps or lays on any – he prefers the bed or sofa someone is sitting on.  Klaus is crated, when unattended, for his own safety as he has scratched and chewed things in the past.  He has never been left unattended for more than 4 hours, ever.

Klaus has basic obedience training and walks well on a leash with minimal pulling when reminded. Using a properly fitted Martingale collar is strongly suggested when walking Klaus on leash.  Klaus has randomly shown dog to dog aggression but not all the time.

Vaccinations are all up to date as of 16 January 2019 and he is microchipped.

Nitro: Siberian Husky (M) 11 months – COURTESY LISTING

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 show 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.

Lhassa: Husky/GSD cross (F) 10 years

Name: Lhassa
Breed: Husky/GSD cross
Sex: Female (Spayed)
Age: 10 years (Born 2 April 2008)
Cats: OK
Dogs: Yes – prefers calm/non dominant dogs
Kids: No young children


This well-trained, affectionate senior girl found herself at a pound through no fault of her own. Having been with the same owner since she was 6 weeks old, they sadly found themselves homeless so she was surrendered to a shelter in February 2018 until she came to SHARP in December 2018.

She has been a little incontinent since having a nasty UTI left untreated for some time which is now being treated but she is OK left for a few hours at a time.  It could also be a touch of spay incontinence which can also be managed. She is a little overweight (32.6kg/72lbs) and is currently on a weight management diet.  She’s had blood work/urinalysis done and a thorough checkup from the vet and is clinically healthy otherwise.  She has been great for her vet visits and very well behaved whilst being handled.

She’s a great companion, loves to be in the vehicle, likes her walks and is still quite strong on the leash so will need someone strong enough to hold her back whilst meeting other people and dogs she is interested in sniffing and playing with.  She hasn’t attempted to get on the furniture and is amazing in crate – just goes in when told.  She doesn’t seem to be very vocal and is selective with toys – she doesn’t seem to like the ones that squeak!  She loves the tennis ball and can catch really well.  She LOVES the tug rope – both to tug and chew on.  She is still very playful for her age.

She doesn’t beg for food or fight over it.  She listens well and does not charge doors or run away.  She’s not overly keen on being brushed but it is possible if done a little at a time.

Lhassa would be a great companion as a single dog in a quieter home or with another quiet/older dog without children to spend her senior years.

Lhassa is up to date on her vaccinations and is microchipped.  She will need someone who can commit to maintaining her incontinence medication.

Aurora: Husky x Malamute (F) 3 years – COURTESY LISTING

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.

Lola: Siberian Husky (F) 9 years

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.

Kaya: Siberian Husky (F) 7 years – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Kaya
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Intact)
Age: 7 years
Cats: NO
Dogs: Selective – see description
Kids: Yes

LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE


Kaya is a high energy female Siberian Husky. I obtained her when she was just a puppy from a couple that were bus drivers who soon realized they did not have the time to care for her.

Shortly after I got Kaya I unfortunately got bit by a tick and have been suffering from Lyme disease for 7 years now. I had to quit my job and I have difficulty sustaining a full time job. My parents and my brother have been helping to care for here all these years. We live in a first floor apartment and due to the construction they knocked down our fence and she has been constantly opening doors and finding her way out. We are also having problems with our new landlord who has been looking for an excuse to get in here and evict us even though we have lived here 32 years.

Kaya is high energy, smart and very loving towards people and children. I have had babies grab her and pull on her and she’s been fine with it. She does have issues with neutered males (not all of them but most) and smaller breeds – again she’s selective as I have had her playing with small dogs and others she just wants to go after and I don’t understand her logic! She is quite stubborn and will try to steal your food when you’re not looking. She’s a big baby and cries at people bedroom doors for someone to sleep with because she does not like to be alone.

She would do best in a family that does not have other pets as she’s quite jealous/possessive and territorial as she wants to be the center of attention. She needs love and affection and a fenced back yard to run around in.

She is good with commands like sit, lay down, give paw. She likes to be on a long leash and if you yank on it she generally will slow down and wait for you. If she sees a dog she doesn’t like, you have to hold her firmly.  She cannot be let off leash.

We have been giving her a dry raw and raw non dehydrated meat. She is picky but she will it when she’s hungry.  Kaya is up to date with her vaccinations, having been done a couple months ago.  She will be adopted on a strict non-breeding/spay contract.

Skye: Siberian Husky (F) 4 years

Name: Skye
Breed: Siberian Husky (50 lbs)
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 4 years (DOB 30 May 2014)
Cats: No
Dogs: Good
Kids: Yes – older
MEDICAL NEEDS


Skye is a gorgeous 4 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.
