Available dogs

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.

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

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


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.

Skye: Siberian Husky (F) 5 years – ADOPTION PENDING

Breed: Siberian Husky (50 lbs)
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 5 years (DOB 30 May 2014)
Cats: No
Dogs: Good
Kids: Yes – older

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.
