Shadow's Story...
Shadow is a very handsome and well loved pet. Unfortunately his owners are in need of a new home for Shadow and are hoping to find a family that will give him the same love and attention that he has become accustomed to. He is a loving dog who has been a wonderful family pet. He is currently 5 years old and weighs approximately 55 lbs.

Shadow is a beautiful dog that can look both wild and tame at the same time. He is always happy to see us and he listens well for a husky, especially if you have a treat or take command. He knows all of his basic commands and walks well on leash. He is fully house trained and can be left alone for a normal working day. He is great with other dogs but has never lived with cats so we don't know how he would be with them. He would probably do best in a home without cats. He is great with children and people in general of all ages.

Shadow loves to play and when he gets really excited he jumps up and sprawls his front legs ready to go. He'll sing like a typical husky and sometimes it seems like he's answering you when you talk to him. He's also a snuggler and his cutest habit is to come up beside your bed and rests his face on your hand when he wants to play and then looks away as if he's trying not to look desperate while stealing glances back at you to see if you're paying attention.

Shadow loves to run and even likes walking with a dog pack on. He likes to play fetch in our back yard but as a husky he doesn't really have recall so playing fetch outside of that would be dangerous. He loves tug of war and playing with his treat balls.

Shadow is not a fan of the vacuum cleaner and he does not like getting sprayed with water. He is alright being brushed although he does keep trying to get away and our groomer has told us that he seems fearful when you brush his neck near his face. Also, we believe a groomer hurt him while cutting his nails so he is afraid of people grabbing his front two paws forcefully. We take him to an experienced groomer who has worked the industry for a long time and knows huskies well. Sometimes if we haven't been able to run him enough he gets hyper and bored and can chew things up. Dealing with the shedding takes a lot of work. Those are the only two issues with Shadow.

Like most Siberian Huskies, Shadow is a loving, gentle, playful, happy-go-lucky dog. He loves his family and is friendly with strangers. He is very intelligent and trainable, and would make an excellent jogging companion. He does however need lots of mental and physical exercise or he will become bored and can be destructive. Huskies in general are thrifty eaters and need less food than you might expect. Shadow will be a wonderful companion for anyone as long as they are aware of what to expect from this beautiful and intelligent boy and are willing to put the time and energy into them.

Just give Shadow lots of love and he'll return it in spades!

If you think Shadow would be a good choice for your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a Hamilton Siberian Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Siberian Husky for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Siberian Husky dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Siberian Husky breeders who help with Siberian Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
