Lhassa: Husky/GSD cross (F) 10 years

Name: Lhassa
Breed: Husky/GSD cross
Sex: Female (Spayed)
Age: 10 years (Born 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.

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.

Luna: Siberian Husky (F) 1 Year 4 months – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Luna
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Female (Intact)
Age: 1 year 4 months
Cats: No
Dogs: Yes
Kids: No


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Luna is a great dog loves to play and run, she loves to jump on people so will need training to break this habit and therefore not suited for small children due to jumping and mouthing.

At first she is a very shy dog, she was raised with another rescue dog and gets on well with other dogs but is more reserved towards people.  She is shy on first meeting and needs to build confidence to greet strangers so is better to be left until she approaches to meet you.

She loves treats so this will be a good training aid for rewards.  She cannot be let off leash so she will need a secured fenced in yard where she can be supervised so she doesn’t jump or dig.  She absolutely cannot live with cats, so no homes with cats.  She is crate trained and knows basic commands.

Luna is bi-eyed and has one blue eye and one brown.  She is currently intact, so will be adopted out on a strict non-breeding/spay contract if not done before adoption.  She is in good health and will be up to date on her vaccinations.

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) 4½ years

Name: Skye
Breed: Siberian Husky (50 lbs)
Gender: Female (Spayed)
Age: 4½ 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.

Skye was surrendered as she was becoming too destructive being left alone,10 hours a day, when her previous owner’s husband who looked after Skye for the most part, passed away in July and she found her hard to manage on her own.  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 was used to being free fed and food was left out all day for her. She’s never been aggressive about food but begs quite often when people are eating. However, due to her current medication, she now requires set feeding times.

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.

Skye will need an experienced owner who can give her a calm environment who is able to set a routine for her medication and exercise and work with her anxiety and grieving.

Sky: Husky x Shepherd (M) 5 years – ADOPTION PENDING

Name: Sky – ADOPTION PENDING
Breed: Husky x Shepherd
Gender: Male (Neutered)
Age: 5 years
Cats: No/Not tested
Dogs: Good but needs to be introduced slowly
Kids: Good – preferably older as could jump and knock over


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Sky is super friendly, healthy with no medical conditions and full of energy. He is always ready to play and loves to go for long walks.

He likes to run, fetch and play. He is very vocal and communicates what he desires. Outside the house he is super friendly with all ages of people. Inside the house Sky can be a little uncertain with strangers and acts more protective like a guard dog. Sky needs a strong leader as he will persistently try to dominate, especially women. It is recommend that he has gradual introductions with people coming to the house. Once he knows the person he will be fine.

Sky is friendly with all sizes of dogs but often gets barked at by small dogs but just walks away, and never responds inappropriately.

Sky knows basic commands like sit, down, high 5, and always ready to learn new tricks with treats around. He can sometimes pull on the leash and needs to be reminded not to.  He is crate trained but generally doesn’t like to go in the crate. Also, it’s been a while since he’s been put in a crate so that may need some more work. He loves car rides and sleeps on his bed. He is not good on recall but will eventually follow you. It is better that he is not let off-leash unless at a dog park or fenced area, especially with getting used to new owners.

Sky has no allergies to any food. He does not guard his food, but can guard his toys, and steal other dog’s toys. Eats gently from hands and waits for command to eat. He eats once a day (currently on President’s choice Nutrition first-Salmon, Chicken or Lamb with Brown Rice, Beef and Oatmeal). He loves ‘Dentix’ chews.

He is fully up to date with his core vaccinations and rabies.

Carl: Husky mix (M) 2 years (approx) – COURTESY LISTING

Name: Carl
Breed: Husky mix
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: 2 years (approx)
Cats: No/Not tested
Dogs: Good with other dog in home and if introduced slowly to others
Kids: No young children/older OK (due to fear issues)


LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Carl came to us from Fort McKay, Alberta. He was hit with a shovel and ended up with several facial fractures. He underwent surgery for these injuries and as a result had his left eye removed.

Carl is generally a lovable, playful pup who loves chasing and wrestling in the backyard, and going for long walks in the woods. He is content to sit outside in the yard and relax, but also likes coming in to be close to his people. He does not dig, jump, or chew. Carl has some complicated fear and trust issues. He does warm up to people if they let him come on his own terms, and if they bring him treats! He gets along famously with his canine sister, but has trouble meeting new dogs. However if he is able to meet them slowly, he is often ok with them.

Carl is very scared of loud noises and sudden movements from strangers. Because of his history, he is very scared of things like shovels, brooms, and sticks. Carl needs a new quiet and calm home where he won’t feel like he needs to bite to get out of a scary situation. He has nipped at and bitten on a couple occasions out of fear/stress, which is why he needs a new home away from the unpredictability of younger children and a loud house. He has been assessed by a trainer who feels that with the right person in the right home, he can be taught to manage his fear in a healthier way. Generally he chooses to find a safe spot in the house and come out again when he feels ready.

Carl can follow basic commands. He is fully crate trained, and likes to sleep in his crate both at night and while we are away in the day. We are working on getting him more comfortable with wearing a muzzle. He walks well with a chest harness and head halter. He is not an off leash dog as his fear issues can cause him to run and hide. He does great on long car rides. He eats one meal a day, in two portions in the evening out of a slow feeder bowl. He is not a picky eater and is food motivated. He does guard his food if he is not comfortable with whoever is around.

He is up to date with his vaccines, is microchipped, and has no other health concerns that we are aware of.
