Mickey

Meet Mickey – your new singing and dancing partner!

Mickey has been loving life in his foster home with his daily sing songs and dance sessions (he loves to be sung to and loves to dance with people!) but he’s now ready to find his perfect fur-ever home.

Mickey’s ideal owners will be someone who is very savvy with dog body language as understanding this is key to Mickey being the best dog he can be. Sometimes Mickey can display behaviours which may make him look aggressive to the unsuspecting person, but really he just wants some attention as he looooves attention (the big suck).

Mickey is a big snuggler and does enjoy spending time with other dogs, as long as they are respectful, of course. Sometimes Mickey can get a little excited with other dogs around which is not always welcome, but this is easily managed with a confident owner. When Mickey is in a bit of a grump, he finds comfort in his covered crate and easily settles himself down.

Mickey would be happy in a home with or without other dogs, as long as his new owners are able to keep an eye on his body language and comfort levels if he is sharing his new home with another furry pal.

Other than that, Mickey is house trained, crate trained and fully up to date in the latest doggy snuggle strategies. All he needs now is someone to love him and give him his new forever home!

Could Mickey be the one you share your kitchen dance floor with?

Franky

Meet Franky – a loveable big boy that loves to cuddle and go for walks!

Franky always greets his foster family with big wet kisses and tail wags at the door. He is happiest hanging out with his people doing whatever they do. Franky LOVES people. As long as you pet him, he is happy!

Franky is 8 years old but acts younger than his age. He likes to be active and is always ready to go for a walk. He needs at least one hour of physical activity per day to be stimulated. Amongst other things, Franky loves to cuddle, to hang his head out the window during car rides, and is a bit of a dancer. For an old dog, he still has some tricks (sit, lay down, give a paw) and is learning every day. Although he hasn’t quite grasped the concept of giving the ball back yet, Franky is learning how to fetch. He LOVES to play!

Franky is a strong boy and can pull on his leash, but he does do well with his training tool. He’ll just need a bit more training to help him become the best version of himself! Franky is also crate trained, house trained and is non-destructive. He has no issues sleeping at night and would love to sneak up on to the couch, if you let him 😉

Franky can be reactive to new dogs which is why we recommend he finds a home where he can be the only dog. Franky can also be vocal when visitors approach the property and does bark at strange sounds, so slow introductions to new people and new situations are a must for Franky. He is a dog that enjoys his own space and as long as that is respected, he is a happy-go-lucky dog. Low energy environments are best for this boy!

Due to his size and strength, Franky would do best with an owner who is comfortable and confident with bigger dogs. Franky will need additional training to address his leash skills and his reactivity to other dogs, so an owner who has the time, patience and willingness to work with Franky on these issues is a must.

We know Franky needs a little work but with a firm owner and consistency, we know that Franky can excel and be an even more wonderful companion than he already is! And in return for all your hard work and effort with his training, Franky will be sure to reward you with lots of doggy kisses and cuddles!

Overall, Franky’s ideal home is one that is active and detached with an experienced owner who would love to work with a giant suck. If he can find it, Franky would also love somewhere with a yard to run around in, but this isn’t essential. As long as Franky can get some snuggles, he’ll be the happiest dog around!

Could this cutie be the one for you?

Kiara

Meet Kiara!

Kiara is a calm and affectionate dog who is looking for her forever home.

She is around 8 years old and is enjoying her recent retirement from working as a sled dog. She is a clean dog who has learned the concept of being house trained rather quickly.

Kiara is generally good with other dogs. She is happy to greet new dog friends on her walks. She gets along well with her foster doggie sister. They occasionally disagree over their favorite things – whether its food, toys, or attention from their people; but the issue is quickly forgotten with redirection and reassurance. Kiara also gets along well with cats and new people visiting her foster home.

Kiara enjoys spending time with her foster family and is always up for a walk, a car ride, or time relaxing on the deck. Kiara is happy to spend time in her crate during the day while her foster family is at work but she prefers to sleep close to her people at night. Kiara loves hotdogs and having her morning and evening walks.

She loves people and can’t wait to meet you!

Could Kiara be the new family member you’ve been dreaming of?

Rider

Hi, my name is Rider!

I am around one year old and I love to hang out with my foster brother and sister. We enjoy playing in the yard together but I also enjoy hanging out on the deck with my foster humans, playing ball, and going for walks. I do need some leash training though, as I get very excited to be out walking and like to go fast and pull my humans along with me!

I do love sticks and balls and will retrieve them. I can also sit, give paw and mostly stay when asked. I am very curious and enjoy being around others (dogs and humans) all day long!

I am great with small to large dogs as long as they don’t mind my sniffing and playing with them. I also enjoy pre-teens and female humans. I am a little hesitant around men, but I will start to warm up and let them pet me from arms reach. Please be patient as I know I will eventually come around! I may be a bit too playful for cats but we can always try.

I don’t bark often but when I do, my foster mom thinks I am coughing HA HA. I am crate trained but please don’t leave anything outside the crate or I might pull it in with me. When you need to go out, I am good in my crate but I do whine a little when I first get in.

Do you think I could be the one for you? I sure hope so!

Vince

Meet Vince!

Vince is a lovable, high energy puppy who is looking for his perfect fur-ever home.

At just two years old and with heaps of energy, Vince does need a lot of exercise and stimulation, so he is set on finding an active family who will take him on adventures and keep him occupied throughout the day! He loves to run and play with other dogs and would love to spend some, or all, of his days at doggy daycare if his new family has to work a lot. Vince would do best in a home where he has another doggy pal to keep him company.

Vince also has the potential to be off leash, but will need some extra training in this. He has done well at his foster home so far but loves to be stimulated, so additional training for this boy is a must, both for his behaviour and for his enjoyment!

Other than that, Vince is a super sweet boy who loves to snuggle and is sure to steal your heart as soon as you meet him. His ideal home would be an active one with a family who has the time and patience to help him be even more awesome than he already is.

Could this adorable furry ball of energy fit into your lifestyle? Vince would love to find out!

Breed: Pointer/Lab mix

Kayak

Meet Kayak – the gentle pup who may or may not be a polar bear hybrid!

Kayak is a sweet and gentle sled dog retiree. He loves cuddling up in his foster mom’s bed, long walks to the park, and open-window car rides (he LOVES the wind). Our little Beef Baby (his nickname!) can be a bit timid upon first meeting a new friend (he can be a bit jumpy or howl out of nervousness), but when he’s ready he will come to you with lots of love. He’s a bit of a lazy boy during the work day – he will sleep and bask in the sun until you get home! But he loves an outdoor adventure, especially trails and parks where he can meet new canine friends.

Kayak is 8.5 years old, but he can still be as silly and excited as a puppy! He’s become very good on-leash and is not reactive to other dogs, cats or humans. He was raised with his sister Arctic, so he’s very good with other dogs being around him or in “his space”.

Although he isn’t “playful” (he looks at toys with confusion and a bit of intrigue), he loves cuddles and under the neck scratches. He also loves being near his family and will often follow his foster parents around the house. Kayak can sometimes be a little nervous around men but this is something we are working on.

Kayak/Beef Baby is definitely not a dog bed kinda guy, preferring the hardwood floor, carpet or his human’s bed over his own. He’s a very simple dog, who will sleep in with you on the weekends and shove his chin into your hand when he wants scratches. He does not mark or have accidents in the house, he does not need to be crated when his family isn’t home (he isn’t the biggest fan of the crate but he doesn’t need it), and we’re working on the leash pulling still but it is VERY mild.

Kayak’s ideal home is one with LOTS of love. He will take a day or two to warm up to each member of the family, but once he does, he is the perfect family dog full of love and a thick coat of fur!

In general, Kayak is a very special and loving boy who deserves an incredible forever family! Could that be you?

Breed: Husky/Malamute mix
Colour: Golden/white
Age: 8.5 years young
Size: Small polar bear (very large)
Sex: Male, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped
House trained: Yes! (A few nervous accidents on the first day and nothing since!)
Crate trained: No need, this good boy perfectly behaves when left alone out of the crate
Loose-leash trained: Almost completely! Still working on it a little
Commands: Kayak has “selective hearing”, which means he will occasionally come when called, but he probably won’t do a whole lot else
Dogs: Yes! He loves friends!
Cats: Maybe. Kayak has encountered a few outdoor cats and seems indifferent to them
Children: Yes! He can be a bit afraid of them if they approach too quickly, but with time he’s quite the socialite

Add more love into your life with this very special guy!

Arctic

Hi! I’m Arctic and I’m a quiet husky.

I know, it sounds unbelievable, we’re pretty rare to come by, but it’s TRUE! The loudest sound my foster mom has heard from me, is when I yawned. Because I’ve done so much work in my past, I’m ready to relax. So, I’ve been spending all my time on this cozy doggie bed, I’ve never felt anything so soft, myyy goodness!

So far, I’m soaking up this relaxing business, it’s great. I’m so calm in the house, that on my second day with my foster mama she trusted me outside the crate when she went to work, and guess what, I just stayed on this bed all day long. I’m sure she thought I’d be a bit of a scoundrel, but I proved her wrong.

The only time I really leave this bed is to go for some walkies! I like walks, especially now that the new grass is growing in. Mmmm boy do I love to graze my nose through the grass, but I still keep a good pace with my foster mom and foster brother. My walking skills are getting pretty good with my training tool – I just need a reminder, or two, that I’m no longer working and I can slow down and smell the grass as much as I like.

I will say though, I’m not a fan of those big metal things on wheels (cars), nor am I a fan of those big bins that smell weird (garbage bins on garbage day) so I try to steer clear of those.

But I have encountered many other things and have been fine – cyclists, some loud, older kids (roughly age 10-13), and even a cat popping out of the bushes! But I ignored it. Also, some crazy dogs ran up to me ON TWO DIFFERENT OCCASIONS, and I just looked at them – they were silly.

Um…. what else have I seen? Oh yes, squirrels and rabbits ! I think I might like to chase those !

Since I’m in a new place, I’m still a bit shy. Remember I said I like to stay on my bed? That’s because it’s my safe space but I’m sure that’ll change when I’m more comfortable. So right now I’m not too much of a snuggle bug.

I don’t know what else to add my dear(s), other than I’m “pretty chill”, as I’ve heard my foster mom refer to me. So if you think I’ll fit in your home and you’re ready to love me, great! Let’s meet to see how it goes and I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂


Breed: Floofy marshmallow (Husky)
Colour: White with a splash of apricot
Age: 9
Size: 75 lbs (short and stout)
Sex: Female, spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped
House trained: Yes

Loose-leash trained: Almost there! My training tool is really helping so far.
Commands: It’s a work in progress
Dogs: Yes
Cats: I saw one on a walk and didn’t react, but I’m not sure how I’d be living with one
Children: If they’re “pretty chill” like me, I’m sure we’d get along just fine!

Lucky

Lucky is seeking his new forever home!

Lucky is a mature, 10-year-old boy that would love a quiet home, a warm bed to sleep in and cosy lap to sit on!

One thing is for sure about Lucky – he’s no couch potato! He enjoys nothing more than going for his daily walks and can keep going for far longer than you would expect from a little dog. Lucky will need a family who can keep him active and wear him out enough for him to snooze all afternoon long!

Lucky is a dog that takes some time to warm up to people. His new owners should expect to give him his space for the first couple of weeks until he gets used to you and learns that he can trust you. If you push him too fast too soon, Lucky has been known to nip, so he will need a confident owner too. As such, Lucky is not a dog that would do well around young children. Lucky also has some separation anxiety, so he is really looking for an owner who has the time and patience to help him work on his confidence and overcome his anxieties. A detached home would also help with his barking too!

That being said, once Lucky has learnt to trust you, he can be a sweet little dog looking for nothing more than some snuggles and some attention! If you are willing to put the work in with him, we are sure that this cute little guy will give you all the love you need in return!

Overall, Lucky’s ideal home would with someone who lives in a detached house and leads an active lifestyle. Someone who has experience in dealing with separation anxiety, or someone who is willing to get training for Lucky in this, would be excellent for this old boy. A home without children is also a must, as Lucky can nip when nervous or startled.

We know that Lucky does need a special home with a special person who has the time and dedication to help him overcome his anxiety. But we also know that his perfect home is out there somewhere!

Could Lucky be the one for you?
