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.



Ariel

2 year old female 
 Husky Shep Mix

ids: yes
Dogs: poor meets
Cats

Trail, BC

Status : Available


HALF PRICE ADOPTION

I'm a princess! Ariel likes to watch you with her paws crossed like she owns the place. She is a confident, social girl who loves people. She will be an ideal companion for someone who is home a lot, and wants an affectionate animal. Ariel can be a bit of a shadow in the house and may benefit from a busy household to share the love.

Ariel is a cheeky critter who has very poor meet manners with other dogs. She goes straight to the "growl and put my chin on their back" test which can lead to shenanigans. Once that is out of the way, she coexists in peace. She is a strange duck because she seems to want to have dogs around in the home - she can get up to chewing if left completely alone but has been very good with canine company.

Ariel is too interested in cats for us to place her in a home with one. This girl has good recall in the wilderness but there is too much going on at trailheads or busy trails for her to listen.

Hudson.jpg
koda giant_edited.jpg

Hudson was dropped at the Red Deer pound with his younger brother, Koda. The staff was left with no names or history on the dogs. We recently had Hudson neutered so he is all set for a home!

Hudson is a sweet, mellow older gentleman with an independent spirit. He has selective hearing (possibly some deafness, to be fair!) but sticks around well off leash if you keep moving. 

He is good left alone in a house, not terribly interested in meeting other dogs, and super uninterested in cats. This older fellow is still keen to walk and has plenty of energy for longer strolls, but doesn't insist on them.

valley and kate.jpg

Valley has come to us from the Fort Smith SPCA. She was raised at the shelter so had plenty of socialization with people and dogs. Unfortunately, we don't know how they are with cats. Mom is a 50lb black lab mix who has a very sweet temperament. 
Valley is a fit dog who would make an amazing trail running and adventure companion. Both girls have settled well into foster care and are adjusting to house life just great.

She can get car sick on longer journeys but has learned to love car rides anyway!

 
Valley is spayed and ready for a home!

cedar kanai2_edited.jpg

Cedar also came from Kanai, but seems to be a slightly older pup than the others, with a little more time on the land. She came from a background of scavenging, so is new to having people around all the time, and being indoors. 

Cedar is discovering that she LOVES cuddles and is gravitating to people even in crowded settings. She is gentle and sweet. She is also slowly building her confidence on walks. When we first collected her, it took two people to carry her from the spay facility to the van, and took a lot of coaxing to get into her foster home. She now walks on leash and is only cautious in new places and with loud noises.

Cedar prefers to be outdoors if alone (does not like to be confined indoors or in crates) but is an absolute angel when someone is in the home with her. She will have no trouble adjusting to a home with an outside space for her to relax in while she gets used to inside life. 



Ally

1 year old female 
 Belgian Shep Collie Mix

35 lbs
K
ids: yes
Dogs: yes
Cats: no


Trail, BC

Status : Home Trial

 

Ally is yet another transplant from Yellowknife. This girl is full of joy, smiles and tail wags. She is quite energetic but is happy to entertain herself with toys in the house. She is smaller than she looks in photos - only about 35lbs.

Ally loves people and playing - she will make a great outdoor adventure dog. She plays well with dogs out on meets but does not seem to want to share a home with them. No cats for this girl, she loves to chase them!

Ally has done well alone in a home for a few hours but has not been tested for longer. Her leash manners are ok, but she does get excited if she sees other dogs while leashed.

Piper came to us from a CATF spay clinic in the fall. She was shy and sweet when she came to us - she has since come out of her shell and is a confident, somewhat independent girl. 

 

She is affectionate and likes people, enjoys playing with other dogs and has been fostered successfully with some cats but chased others. Piper is well behaved in home. Her leash manners aren't the best. She would benefit from a fenced property or time at a dog park as she will sometimes wander off if off-leash.

valley and kate.jpg

Kate has come to us from Fort Smith, along with her sister Valley. Both girls were raised in the shelter so have been exposed to people, dogs and leash walks for most of their lives. We are not sure how they are with cats.

Mom is a 50lb black lab mix that looks mostly like a lab. 

Kate is a happy, mid energy girl who will make a great adventure dog for a relatively active family. 

Kate is good off-leash - she bonds quickly with her people. She can be shy of strange men on trails. 

Both girls have settled well into foster care and are adjusting to house life.

Molly is yet another girl from Kanai, who was surrendered with several siblings. She is a little less shy than the others, and will even venture to explore and ask for pets from strangers. 
Molly was willing to walk on leash and is social with dogs as well. She will likely do just fine with cats. She is currently fostered in a home with kids and doing great!

Molly did suffer from car sickness while on the road from Alberta.



Kosha

1 year old female
Collie Shepherd  mix

New Denver, BC

poppy friend_edited.jpg

Kosha is a super-cuddler, ready to give snuggles to everyone she meets. She's working on her confidence being out and about, but would be content chilling with her new family all day. 
Kosha does well in a crate, is manageable on leash and has great recall. Like many scavengers, she is very food motivated and can eat a little quickly. She is calm and loving with kids and currently cautious with strange dogs. She bonded very quickly to her foster sister so would do great in a home with a dog who welcomed her. 

This girl is built for adventure and will steal the heart of anyone who meets her.

koda giant_edited.jpg

Koda was abandoned with his brother at the Red Deer pound. No name or history was provided. He seems to be a happy go lucky boy who is a bit of an independent spirit. He is friendly, good in a house, fairly good on leash and fine with cats.

When meeting other dogs, Koda is one of those boys that comes in hot, mostly due to over-enthusiasm. He gets a little excited during car rides as well so would make a great homebody for a larger property or with someone who prefers to walk from home. 

We are also looking for a foster for Koda - all supplies are provided!

Nelson BC

Status : Availabe
 

Bella has come to us from Yellowknife, following her sister Juniper. Bella is a sweet, social girl who is good with cats and dogs. 

She's an energetic girl who loves to run and play fetch. She is good off-leash; even though she doesn't know her name, she checks in often on trail walks. She greets dogs well and will initiate play. 

Bella does pull on leash and will need some training around that. 

Bella has recently shown some resource guarding around her food dish with people so we would not place her with smaller children until she grows comfortable with hands in her eating space.

tully.jpg
tully cray.jpg

Tully is another Kanai clinic surrender of similar age. Like her counterparts, she is quite timid. She was, however, one of the first dogs to wag her tail at volunteers, and has this amazing smile when someone comes to visit.

She enjoys laying in laps when people sit on the ground, and is comfortable around large groups of dogs. Shy animals tend to be good with cats so we are hopeful she is the same.

Tully is exploring a puppyhood she missed out on and is currently trying chewing on for size. Appropriate chew toys and bones should get her over the hump. 

The timid dogs we work with are all very similar - non aggressive, wanting to be loved, but taking things slowly. Patient, predictable homes are best.
