CURRENT ADOPTABLES

Anyone that has had the opportunity to adopt an abused or neglected dog will understand what a powerful thing it is.  Seeing them transform into a confident and joyful pet will absolutely fill your heart. 

These moments of growth are matched only by the devotion they will show you when they come to understand you are their hero and have given them life.

JUNE 2020: With so many wonderful families contacting us, and new dogs only now coming in, we have a wait-list of approved applicants. Only dogs that do not meet the criteria of wait list families will be placed as "available" on this site. Please check the status of each dog before inquiring, and by all means, submit an application if you know what kind of dog would best suit your home.

Ryder has come all the way from Northern Saskatchewan via BARCS rescue. This charming, calm husky shepherd has come from an abusive home, but still has his heart wide open for love. He is a gentle boy who enjoys neck scratches and being told how good he is. 

His coat has suffered from malnourishment and the elements, but we are working on making him beautiful again. 

He is gentle on a leash and friendly with other dogs. We hope once he settles into his new environment he will come out of his shell and start to play and frolic.

Daisy rolled in on a big bus with her one week old babies. There will be no information on the pups until they hit the 4 week mark. 

Daisy is a caring and attentive mother, but this will be her last litter... it certainly is not her first. Poor girl is worn out. 

She is calm, walks well on a leash, does not react to cats. She doesn't seek affection but enjoys it when given. During transport, Daisy was not comfortable having any dogs near her pups. It is difficult to say at this time how she feels about other dogs in a neutral setting. 

Daisy would do best in a calm environment, perhaps with an older couple or a single person. 

She will be nursing her pups for the next several weeks so she won't be available for meets until that time.

Mr Blake has come all the way from Yellowknife on the first Freedom Flight since the pandemic closed the northern border. He is a confident, sassy young shepherd mix.

Blake is energetic and playful - he adores balls and will follow you anywhere if you have one in your hand. He will make a wonderful, active companion for an outdoorsey family. 

We have not cat-tested Blake. He is good with most dogs, but his play energy can be "too much" for some more stoic dogs. He also has terrible leash manners, but his fosters are working on it.

Oakley

STATUS: Meet Pending

 

2.5 Year Old

Male Rottie Mix

50lbs

Castlegar, BC

Kids: Yes

Dogs: Yes

Cats: Unknown

Oakley joins us from Yellowknife, from the same family as Blake, possible littermates. With Blake being the big man on campus, Oakley has taken a more calm and watchful approach to life. This guy is fit and playful with other dogs, but calm in the house.

He has a gentle affection to him and he charmed 3 foster homes and his drivers. Oakley is a picky eater which will bring training challenges, but he is so good in so many ways. He has been on one off-leash bike ride and was called "a natural". 

Oakley does love a good squirrel-chase so we aren't sure how he'd be with cats. He is a tiny bit timid, which comes out around loud noises. He loves car rides!

Dawson is a beautiful, rare to us, full-blooded husky boy. He is a young-at-heart middle aged guy who loves to explore off-leash, but will pay for it with some stiffness later. He is a very sweet, gentle guy, who has been good with all of the dogs he has met. His recall is good... for a husky. He is a super chatty fellow and will tell you all about it when he's excited, or annoyed, or being a princess. Dawson will talk a lot on car rides, and is prone to drama.
