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 : Barzy

Sex: neutered male
Approximate Age: 1.5 year

Weight: 22 Lbs.
Rescued from: Los Cabos, Mexico
Likes: Loves treats, snuggling under a blanket with you. He is figuring out walks and now loves getting his harness on for walks.
Dislikes: Loud noises and people he percieves as tall/big. He is shy and lots of commotion can scare him.
Ideal Home: He would prefer a quiet home with less activity. He requires slow introductions to people as he can be nervous. After a few treats, he loses his shyness.

Attached home, Detached home, Senior home, Quiet home, Left alone during work 5+ hrs
Energy Level: low
Experience with Kids: recommend only Children over 12 yrs
Experience with cats: Unknown.
Medical Needs: none
Training Needs: He’s been kennel train for bedtime. So he has no problem sleeping at night in there. He’s not destructive when left alone but if left too long (6+) he is more likely to have an accident. Barzy would benefit from basic training. He isnt yet good at asking to go outside but with consistency he will learn.  He would also benefit from an adoptive family that will help him overcome his insecurities.

From Barzy's Foster: 

Barzy is a loving snuggle dog who is looking for is Furever family. He loves to bury his body and all when you are laying down under your covers. He also loves treat and will sit patiently for his turn even if his other dog roommates bump into him. He has the coolest coat (brindle) and no tail. But no worries he still shakes his butt when he is happy.

I'm just here for the treats
They call me : Cosmos

Predicted Breed: Miniature Pincher mix.
Sex: neutered male
Approximate Age: 1.5 year

Weight: 30 Lbs.
Rescued from: Mexico
Likes: Cosmo loves dogs, puzzles, learning new tricks, the agility park, running off leash in a secure space

Dislikes: Nervous around new people
Ideal Home: The ideal home for Cosmo would be a home with a female presence, he would do best in a home with older children or no children as he is still a bit nervous and would ideally like a quieter home environment. Because he can initially be nervous we do require him to go to an attached or detached home as long as they have a secure yard (no chain link fences). Cosmo would require a home with another dog as this helps him with his confidence building and he really enjoys their company.

Attached home, Detached home, Condo, Quiet home, Active 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 who have a confident dog in the home to help Cosmos.
Energy Level: medium
Experience with Kids: recommend only Children over 12 yrs
Experience with cats: Yes
Medical Needs: none
Training Needs: Cosmo loves walks on leash and despite his fear is usually able to work through it and continue. He does sometimes get excited when he sees another dog and doesn't know yet how to manage his energy, adopters will need to continue to work on building up his confidence on walks and around new dogs. Cosmo needs a home where someone likes training because he LOVES doing tricks and learning.

Cosmo needs slow introductions to new people and especially men. He is still learning through positive interactions to trust them but this will take time and adopters will need to continue to work on this with him.

Knows sit, Knows stay, Knows other commands, House trained, Crate trained, Prey drive, Walks on leash, Excitement Reactivity

From Cosmos's Foster: 

Cosmo is a wonderful dog who has really come out of his shell. He was not properly socialized as a pup but this hasn’t stopped him. He is super curious and extremely smart. He loves to play with toys and throw them up in the air in the backyard. He loves fresh snow and is the bounciest boy you will ever see. Cosmo loves to wrestle with the resident dogs and looks to them for assurance. He is fully crate trained and potty trained. He knows tons of tricks including hi-five, spin, heel, weaving through our legs and more. An ideal home will enjoy training and be willing to continue making activities to increase his confidence. He will do most agility obstacles now which has helped with his confidence.

I may not be your whole life, but I will make your life whole.
