My story

***We appreciate every application we get, however due to the volume we receive we are unable to contact each individual who sends one in. We will follow up with people we believe will be a good fit for the animal in question. If you do not hear back from us please feel free to send in applications for other animals as well.***

Hudson is a friendly and loving dog who is looking for a home to call his own. He is well into his adult years, and has a calm energy when people are around. Handsome Hudson's favourite toys are frisbees and squeakers, and he loves playing fetch and tug. This good boy also adores water, and will lay right down in his pool!
Sadly this pup has been passed around between homes over the past year, and has developed some separation anxiety as a result. In a previous living situation he was also tethered outside for periods of time. This resulted in leash based reactivity, where reactivity to certain stimuli (in this case other dogs) only occurs when he is on leash. A future guardian would likely be able to overcome this with positive reinforcement training and a training plan from an AnimalKind trainer, however a more rural setting where Hudson is unlikely to encounter other dogs on walks would make management in the meantime a lot easier. The leash reactivity is a developed habit from his time on a tether, and so off leash he is a different dog!
Once a solid recall foundation has been built, Hudson would probably make an amazing off leash adventure dog. He likes sticking close with his people, and would likely love hiking and camping with his future family.
Hudson's ideal family would live on a large property, with not very many dogs in the immediate area, and would have lots of time to spend with him. Due to his breed heritage and history, a home with no other indoor pets will be necessary and any outdoor animals will need to be well contained.
This boy will made an amazing companion and every one who meets him falls in love with his huge smile and wiggly bum.

The world is inhabited by many species sharing a common ecosystem of air, earth, and water. We recognize and value our interconnectedness with all animals.

4. Freedom from discomfort
5. Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being.
