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.

Dash was tied up his whole life and suffered from an embedded collar. Not as bad as some, but the trauma was enough that he is very unhappy on a rope or chain. This boy will need a fenced yard for his outside time.

Dash is a very friendly boy who loves all people. He enjoys playing with other dogs as well. He needs a halti or good front lead harness to manage him on leash as he is very strong. 

He enjoys chew toys and bones, and is a big explorer. He does well off-leash in a quiet rural area. We wouldn't say he has recall, but he checks in regularly and "sticks around". The exception is busy places. Dash is SO social that he will run to greet people as soon as he hears signs of civilization. He will return on his own time. He was so slippery with his Rossland foster that he spent time playing with the elementary school kids at recess, perusing the grocery store shelves and even strolled into the lobby of the fancy hotel. He was loved wherever he went which just reinforced his curious nature.

Tux


year old male
Husky Hound mix
65 lbs
Kids:
yes
Dogs: yes
Cats:probably ok
Rossland, BC



Status : Available

Tux has just come to us from Meadow Lake Saskatchewan. He lived life on a chain as is typical, and was underfed so came into rescue quite thin. He is a very handsome boy with floppy ears and gorgeous white-blue eyes. Tux is a little bit timid in new environments but always has his tail wagging for people. This guy will love you forever and follow wherever you go

He has adjusted really well to house life and learns SO quickly. He is quiet when left home alone, non destructive and won't even counter surf. He doesn't love being in a crate but will settle after some time. Tuxedo walks nicely on-leash about 90% of the time - there's moments when he wants to say hi to a passing dog, or a particular scent catches his attention that he does pull. Tux is a goofy. clumsy boy who sometimes growls to initiate play, with other dogs.

Tux does really well off leash and has developed excellent recall in just a few days. He does, however, jump toward things moving quickly near him like bikes and cars, so quieter trails away from roads are best for him. He is doing much better with cars lately but has not had bike exposure opportunities. He showed no interest during his cat test.

Oxford

1 year old male
Lab Mix
50 lbs
Kids:
yes
Dogs: yes
Cats: untested
Salmo, BC


Status : Available

Oxford just arrived from the AARCS shelter in Calgary. He is a sweet, curious  young lad who is super happy to be out of a kennel and back in a home environment. Ox can be a little unsure meeting other dogs and may growl through fences or bark from a distance. He really just wants to play though, but you can see he has had some interactions not go his way in the past so he's hesitant. 

Oxford is sweet and affectionate, and still working on puppy manners. He will jump up to say hello and still pulls on leash. He wants so much to hear what a good boy he is, so these things will come with consistent training. 

Ox has not been cat tested but is being fostered around chickens and isn't overly interested in them. 

Toby

5-6 year old male
Husky Mix

Toby is an absolute sweetheart. He likes being brushed and getting belly rubs, and giving you his paw to encourage petting. 

He is an angel in the house - quiet, non destructive, low energy. As soon as you get him outside he is playful and loves to run. Toby can be snarky meeting dogs on leash but it can be managed based on his attitude before he sniffs and if he is not allowed to mount. Off leash he is generally fine and has shared a home with two dogs. He does resource guard treats if they fall to the ground with other dogs.

His leash manners aren't bad and his recall isn't immediate but he will check in. One of our fosters said he was the nicest dog she ever cared for.

Maya


6 month old female
Shepherd Bernese
60 lbs
Kids:
yes
Dogs: yes
Cats: yes

Kimberly, BC


Status : Home Trial

maya sits.jpg

Maya comes to us from Saskatchewan. Someone surprised the family with a puppy for Christmas that they really didn't expect, and when they realized how quickly she was growing, they couldn't commit to. She was put out on a chain because they didn't want to deal with her and received no training. Her foster in Saskatchewan worked with her for several weeks and she certainly took to couch cuddles. At 6 months, she is already quite large and could approach 90-100lbs by the time she fills out. 

Maya is good with cats, kids and dogs. She is a bit sensitive and can cry for the first day in a new environment. Maya would be happiest in a busy home where she wouldn't spend a lot of time alone. She is crate trained and will need crating when left alone for the first while.


 

Meeka's Pups

2 females

Kids:
yes
Dogs: yes
Cats: yes
Salmo, BC

Bernie (floppy ears) and Charlie are the last remaining of Meeka's puppies. Meeka is an energetic, friendly 45lb girl who appears to be border collie and some sort of terrier mix. 

These girls are sweet and playful. Both are a bit timid - Charlie more so than Bernie.

We honestly can't believe these two are still waiting for homes.

Yes, it's Jane but she has spent some time as Juno the past weeks so we're going with Juno. Fresh name, fresh start? 

Juno loves people and is a very affectionate dog. She also loves to play and when she meets dogs on leash has a knack for convincing them to race around with her. She is a super fit girl and would be an ideal match for an active, outdoors-ey family.

Juno may not be a fit for a first time dog owner as she does need help self-regulating. She responds well to crate time outs when her emotions get the better of her, and is very manageable for someone who sees those signs of heightened state. If she gets daily mental stimulation and exercise, she is a very good girl. Juno will bark at passers-by if in a yard or tied up.  She has good recall off leash and is a great trail running companion. 


We're still trying to determine if she prefers a home with a dog friend or without. She can be jealous with certain dogs, and controlling with food, but also seems to enjoy the companionship. At this stage we're calling it "will fit with the right dog for her".

These three girls came from a property in Salmon Arm. They had a vet check at 8 weeks but nothing since so are awaiting visits locally Feb 2 and 9th to catch up on vaccines, dewormer and possibly check for mites as there is some hair loss around the eyes. 
There are only two photos as the three pups look pretty similar :> 
They are affectionate and social pups who were raised around children but seemed to be living outdoors so exposure to kids was not likely constant. Our amazing fosters are working on house and leash training as they had never worn collars before. 

They aren't very large for their ages and are on track to be under 60lbs full grown.
