I like big mutts and I cannot lie
They call me : Solar

Predicted Breed: Shepherd/husky mix.
Sex: neutered male
Approximate Age: 12
 months
Weight:  35 Lbs.
Rescued from: local surrender
Likes: Solar loves everything but can be a bit impatient if you make his food too slowly. He loves to be outside on his own or with you in the home. He loves playing with other dogs and is up for just about any adventure you want to take him on.
Dislikes: Being alone.

Ideal Home: Solar is a high energy pup so an active family would be best for him. He does great with kids and other dogs. He would do best in a home with a yard for him to run around and play in.

Detached home, Active home, Left alone 2-4 hrs only

Energy Level: High
Experience with Kids: Yes
Experience with cats: unknown
Medical Needs: Solar is a parvo survivor and because of this he does require a specific food (Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Stomach)
. Solar has been going to physio and they are treating him for mild hip disfunction which is common in younger dogs. We have seen great improvements with him attending physio and would ensure adopters are able to attend a physio session with Solar so they can understand the exercises that are helpful to keeping him happy and healthy
Training Needs: Solar is such a good pup and is eager and ready to learn new things every day. Solar is lacking in confidence when meeting new dogs and will bark when he sees them however if you practice a slow and proper introduction with him he becomes playful and submissive. The more you work on introducing him to new dogs the more confident he will become and likely this behavior will start to subside. Solar is house trained having very little to no accidents in the home.

From solar's Foster: 

My name is Solar, I have been in the rescue since I was 5 weeks old and have been very patiently waiting for my forever home now for nearly a year. I know there is a family out there that wants to adopt me.... .right?

I am a happy dog with so much love to give. I really enjoy playing with my foster siblings and new dogs when I meet them. I looooooovve food so I am easy to train! I do get a bit nervous on walks when I see another dog but I am told if I am a good boy and practice meeting new dogs properly I will get better at this. My foster family is amazing but I would really love to be in my forever home and starting my new life with them. Are you my forever family???

Momma says I'm special
They call me : Arnoldo

Predicted Breed: Rat terrier mix.
Sex: neutered male
Approximate Age: 1 year

Weight: 18 Lbs.
Rescued from: Los Cabos, Mexico
Likes: He likes relaxing at home and cuddling. He loooves food and treats a lot
Dislikes: He doesn’t like long walks or lots of activity
Ideal Home: Arnoldo is a quiet pup that is needing to work on his confidence. H
e needs another confident friendly dog in the home to help him with this. He can go to an attached home. Because Arnoldo is a nervous pup we think he would be best in a home with older kids or no kids. We haven't tested him around cats but he is a calm pup so would likely be fine with them.

Attached home, Detached home, Condo, Quiet home, Left alone during work 8+ hrs

Due to his insecurities, we will only accept adoption applications from those with a securely fenced yard and within Calgary.
Energy Level: low
Experience with Kids: recommend only Children over 12 yrs
Experience with cats: Unknown.
Medical Needs: none
Training Needs: Arnoldo is a quiet boy but he is young and loves food so he will be easy to train. He is very nervous with new people and will require a slow and proper introduction when meeting them. He isn't reactive but will cower and hide. Arnoldo really needs some confidence building and once he is more confident you may start to see a playful active side to him.

Knows sit, House trained, Shy, Fearful, Walks on leash

From Arnoldo's Foster: 

Arnoldo is a very sweet boy. He is very quiet and loves to relax at home and be close to his person! He will take some time to warm up but once he does he will always want to be beside you. He loves his treats and kibbles and a comfy spot on the couch. He should be with someone that wants to just relax and let him have his space

Anything is pawsible

From Brinn's Foster: 

Brinn is a gentle soul, she is full of love and deserves a very affectionate and active family. Due to an unknown accident Brinn was left at a vet clinic with a fractured jaw and several puncture wounds. She is fully healed, however her jaw healed crooked. It does not seem to bother her at all and does not stop her from playing all day long.
