The name is Nanook and my sister Meeka probably already told you about our trouble with cats. In case she didn’t, we cannot be with cats. The neighbour’s cat did not fair so well when we dug out of our yard . Our mom and dad were forced to surrender us to the shelter. I am a great boy all around however. I just need a home with no cats; and likely no small dogs. I grew up with children, and am fine with them. I am very calm and will lay down at your side in a crowd if we stop moving for a few minutes. I am quiet unless I am alone outside. I really just want to be in the house at all times with my people and dog friends! I am quite a skilled digger, so I will need a yard with dig guard in place; and be always supervised with outside. I would also do fine in a home where I am always on a leash. I know my basic commands and am house trained. I am great with other dogs and children! I am working on crate training and it is going well after I chewed my way out of my crate on the plane from Saskatchewan to Ontario! I am neutered, UTD on all of my vaccinations, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $350.

About S.H.A.R.P. Siberian Husky Assistance and Rescue Program

About Our Rescue Group...

S.H.A.R.P. Awareness

The Siberian Husky Assistance and Rescue Program (S.H.A.R.P.) is an organization dedicated to the health, welfare and happiness of Siberian Huskies. By working with animal shelters, rescue groups, dog owners and the general public, our goals are:

To offer advice to owners about the proper care and ownership of Siberian Huskies
To provide education and information about the Siberian Husky breed
To assist with the rescue of Siberian Huskies

Advice. The membership of S.H.A.R.P. consists of owners and breeders of Siberian Huskies. Our members have a wealth of knowledge about the behavior, training and care needed for the breed. We are eager to offer our experience to help others enjoy the company of their pet. In addition, we have access to a wide variety of information and expertise, including the Siberian Husky Club of Canada, the Canadian Kennel Club and several international organizations. We want people and their Siberians to have long, happy lives together.
Education. The Siberian Husky is a beautiful and noble breed. They are often seen in movies, television and advertisements. Unfortunately this exposure can and has led to problems. People want to own a Siberian because of their beauty and the behavior seen in these controlled situations. They do not realize the time and effort needed to work with a Siberian in order to achieve these goals. Similar problems occurred with the Dalmatian and Saint Bernard breeds with the movies “101 Dalmatians” and “Beethoven”. S.H.A.R.P. cares about the image and myths that exist about the Siberian Husky breed. We want to ensure people understand the Siberian Husky.
Rescue. Although we hope that through advice and education, all Siberian Huskies and their owners will enjoy a lifetime together, in reality this does not always happen. When all else fails, S.H.A.R.P. works on the rescue, rehabilitation and relocation of a Siberian Husky in distress. We help local shelters and humane societies rescue neglected or mistreated Siberian Huskies. We also use this network and other contacts to return lost Siberians to their owners. And we work with these organizations and the general public to find new homes for Siberians.
S.H.A.R.P. members receive no salaries for their work. All our members donate their time because of their love of the breed. However, Siberian Huskies, which come under our care, frequently require extra medical and nutritional assistance. S.H.A.R.P. would welcome your donation to help our efforts. If financial assistance is not possible, contributions towards our auctions will be accepted.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is similar to other rescues. The first step is to fill out our adoption application. After we have reviewed it and discussed amongst ourselves, a home visit will need to be scheduled. After the home visit (sometimes at the same time if local to the dog of interest), a meet and greet will be scheduled with your whole family and your pets. After the meet and greet, you may pick up your dog from their foster home, sign the contract, and pay the adoption fee! We do not adopt dogs over 6 months of age to homes with cats.
