Through no fault of his own, Sammy is back with HEART rescue. Originally from a hoarding case in Inuvik, when Sammy came to us he was a traumatized, scared and uncertain young dog. He is a shepherd-husky mix, likely around 5 years of age. He flourished in foster care and let his playful, goofy side come out. We found him a home 2 years ago and as far as we knew that was the beginning of his new life.
Sammy mysteriously appeared at the SPCA in Salmon Arm recently, and all attempts to contact the owners failed. He had completely shut down in the shelter environment, so we are very fortunate he was microchipped and HEART was contacted. Now that Sammy is back in foster care, his huge personality has returned. He is good with other, playful dogs, listens well off-leash and is good in the home if he has a dog friend. Sammy is devoted, ridiculous and full of love. We are uncertain of where his anxiety is if left completely alone. He may take a few days to warm up, but then becomes highly affectionate - you will never get so much energetic joy on your return home from work as with Sammy.
We met one very confident cat and he was scared of it, and not interested in where it was or what it was doing, so he should be okay in a home with cats that won't run away from him.
Sammy is fully vetted. Come meet him in Rossland, BC!
Nala is a small (35lb) husky from the Red Deer region of Alberta. She has been malnourished and pent up inside when all she wants to do is run and play. Nala has likely been attacked by several dogs, as she can be defensive at first meets, especially on-leash - we would love to see her with a calm and confident dog friend that will make her feel secure. She loves children and really enjoys being part of a busy home.
She is highly affectionate; she enjoys being touched and going for walks. Because her past situation was so crummy, Nala has learned to bolt when given the chance. We are hoping that once she attaches to someone who is kind to her, and gets into a routine of daily exercise, she will not feel the need to run off.
Nala is fully vetted and ready for meets in Trail, BC.
Donna has just arrived from Yellowknife and is ready for a loving home in an amazing place! She is a 6 year old husky-pyrenese mix. Donna is a little bit shy of people but really does want affection and warms up quickly.
She enjoys the company of calm dogs and will follow their lead if they are confident. Donna is a total lady on leash - she has more of the pyrenese instincts than husky, and tends to stay on her property. She is good with cats and small animals.
She's a unique looking girl and will make a wonderful, loyal companion to the right person. She has recently been spayed and is ready to go to her new home!
Currently fostered in Pass Creek, BC.
DOGS NEED RIDES
H.E.A.R.T., along with several other organizations, aims to relocate and rehome dogs from high kill situations in Northern Canada to the West Kootenays. In order to do this the dogs need to be transported from various Northern shelters.
