WELCOME TO MUTT MINGLE - WHERE YOUR PERFECT MATCH IS WAITING
Sandy - Slocan - Home Trial
About me: Llllllllladies... your prayers have been answered. The Sandman is here. I'm part husky part awesome - from some frozen place a million miles away - so far north there was another ocean! Crazy. Folks there don't let dogs in their houses so this whole Kootenay vibe is new to me, but I dig it.
At two years old, I'm ready to move out on my own!
I loves me some people, I loves me some dogs. Would be super cool beans to find a pad with people who like to rip it up outside and also a nice girly dog to cuddle up with at night. If you set me free, I'll totally stick around. I know a good thing when I see it.
My paws got itchy for a bit, it may have been the food I was on, so it would be cool to figure out what the hootenany set me off like that. Otherwise, fit as a fiddle! I get pretty wound up if I'm all alone, but it's much better if I'm hanging outside.
Likes: my peeps! running around in the forest, any kind of food, dogs dogs dogs
Dislikes: cats, loneliness, crates
Winter - Home Trial
Sigh... hello world. I've seen some things in my 7 years, I tell ya. I have had my heart broke a few times in my travels, you know how it is, you get to know someone, you think "okay, this is my life now" and then they leave you. I've been in some houses, I've been on some chains, and I've been in some kennels. I really don't like the kennels - they are loud, and everyone is stressed out.
Tell ya what I do like... I nice soft bed and a nice warm house. Folks to tell me what a sweetheart I am. I fall in love hard and fast - can't help it - a few kind words and I'm yours. I'll do whatever it takes to make you happy... I can be a bit of a shadow I'm told.
I'm on prescription drugs for my joints and my nerves, but we're trying some wacky weed because I'd like to keep it natural, ya know? Hopefully it'll mellow me out and take some of the stiffness away.
Likes: kids, naps, dog friends, caresses, fashion, cats
Dislikes: being alone, getting old, break ups
*Winter is on pain-management medication for the long haul. We are willing to discuss costs with you and your veterinarian*
Gunner - Home Trial
I grew up in the big city - now, at 3 and a half, I have discovered dog heaven. Why didn't anyone tell me about the Kootenays? Have you seen these legs? They need to stretch! I really like kicking it on the deck and watching the world go by. I'm pretty fit and like to keep on the move, might get a little pacey on you if I haven't had my big run around.
Oh, and I'm kind of a genius. I figured out when my foster mom raises her arm, she wants me to check in, in like a day. We have this mutual respect thing on off-leash walks... she lets me wander a bit, and I don't go too far, and always come back when she wants me to. It works out swell.
I'm a pretty big dude so can keep you super safe from bears and stuff. Not big on barking though - I go with more the "strong silent type"
Likes: treats, puzzles, learning new tricks, forests, decks, other dogs, kids
Dislikes: being bored, being humped, well-secured garbage bins, cats

Potato Pancake - Fruitvale
I'm just a 10-week old little puppy! But I'm really brave and like trying to get the big dogs to play. I love love love love napping in laps, and running in the grass. I'm pretty smart and calm for my age!
My foster momma says I made myself right at home in 5 minutes! Well sure I did, she has a big dog, and a little dog, and cats, and lets me on the couch... doesn't take a lot to make me happy! My favorite thing in the whole world would be to have a family with a dog, but as long as you promise to love me and let me sleep on your feet, that's okay too.
These 9 pups were rescued from a neglectful situation in the East Kootenays. They were picked up malnourished and harbouring worms, but are on their way to a healthy weight. They have been vet checked and cleared as healthy. They are all quite social and very sweet. Mom (in pic) is Coon Hound, dad is mastiff mix.

DOGS NEED RIDES
H.E.A.R.T., along with several other organizations, aims to relocate and rehome dogs from overcrowded shelters and remote communities in Northern Canada to the West Kootenays. In order to do this the dogs need to be transported from various Northern shelters.
If you are traveling between Edmonton and anywhere in the West Kootenays, please get in touch with H.E.A.R.T. at the email below. We will give you gas money and lend you all the equipment needed to help with transportation of the dogs (such as crates, bowls, food etc).
Your services will be rewarded by a grateful traveling companion that will listen to all your stories with relish and won't complain about your music choices!
