Facts about Yuki

  • Breed: Australian Shepherd/Husky Mix
  • Color: Merle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
This stunning boy with the gorgeous blue eyes is Yuki. He was very reluctantly surrendered to Kiko’s care by a family who loved him very much but could no longer keep him due to family members having developed severe allergies. Yuki’s breed mix is somewhat of a mystery—he had been purchased as a mix of Husky and Pomeranian, and was supposed to grow to 25 pounds. Now an adult at 2.5 years of age, he weighs in at 60 pounds. Based on his size, appearance, and certain characteristics, our best guess is a mix of Australian Shepherd or Border Collie and Husky. Yuki is friendly with people and was used to going to the dog park, where he got along well with other dogs but would not always come when called. Besides being a bit of a puller on leash, which his foster is working on with the help of an Easy Walk harness, Yuki does not appear to have any major negative behavioural issues. The youngest child he lived with was 8 years old, he is not a big barker, and he travels well in the car. Yuki would make an excellent pet for an active family in a home with a fenced backyard who will also take him on the walks that he loves so much. Please complete an adoption questionnaire at if you are interested in our handsome Yuki. We anticipate receiving a lot of applications for him so please be patient; we may not even have a chance to reply to everyone. Yuki is expected to be at the upcoming adoption day in Hudson on Saturday, December 3. Details with a link to a map are available on our website.

About Kiko Dog Rescue and Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Kiko Dog Rescue and Adoptions is a small non-profit rescue group located west of Montreal near the Quebec/Ontario border and is named after a little black Pug rescued from a puppy mill. We are dedicated to helping dogs that have found themselves homeless, whether they are from a pound, puppy mill or a home surrender, by placing them in the loving forever homes they so deserve. All dogs that come into our rescue receive whatever veterinary care they require, including everything from dentistry to surgery to help correct an uncomfortable or painful medical condition. In many cases, the adoption fee is not enough to cover a dog's vet bill. If you would like to help us by making a donation towards our vet bill, please click on the Paypal button. Thank you!

Our dogs are not kept at a shelter. We rely on the generosity of foster families. If you are not ready for a permanent adoption and would like to consider fostering on a temporary basis, please contact us for more information. Food and veterinary care is provided by Kiko—all you need to provide is a warm loving haven.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a Kiko dog, please e-mail us. You will be asked to complete an adoption application so that we can get to know you better. A home visit is also mandatory, often with the dog that interests you. Our adoption fee is $400 and all our dogs are examined by a veterinarian, defleaed, dewormed*, vaccinated, sterilized and also tested for heartworm and lyme disease. *Please note that puppies adopted at a young age may require ongoing deworming for up to six months. Although this is a relatively inexpensive treatment, Kiko is unable to cover this and will only take care of deworming while the puppy is under the care of the rescue.
