Inquire about Adella

My name is Adella which means noble. Highway 43 is where my pretty face was found. Thatís right I was dodging traffic like a champ. But in reality thatís not really a way to live scrounging for food and hiding out in ditches. I found enough to get me by but I was still very hungry. I donít really know where my family was but I guess it doesnít matter now. WHARF is amazing and a great place for me to find a new family. I am a really good dog and I learn fairly fast. I love snuggles and if it was up to me I would be with you all day long. I like to play and like to go on long walks. I am great with other dogs, cats, and little humans. If you would like to meet the best of the best, that would be me! Iím spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

Inquire about Bruno

Greetings! The name is Bruno. My previous owner loved me very much or so I thought she did. I was surrendered to WHARF because of living circumstances. I am a very lovable boy and will always greet you with tail wags and puppy dog kisses. I love to snuggle and be around people. Just to be around people makes me the happiest dog on the earth. I know my basic commands and do pretty well on a leash. I am a little overweight or big boned is what I like to say. If you want to take me on a jog sometime feel free. I am great with cats, dogs and kids. Playing and going on adventures are kind of my thing. Want to be an adventurer with me? I am neutured, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

Inquire about Congo

Congo. That's my name. I came here with my shelter mates from Mexico and want to find a warm, safe home of my own. I am 3 years old and my foster mamas say I am stunning, with my brindle fur and handsome face mask! They say I'm a timid kind of guy, but I just take my time getting to know and love you! Even so, I am a very gentle dog who would love to find a home with another strong, calm dog to guide me and teach me even more as my confidence builds. My new ma or pa should be calm, gentle and patient too, as I will need time to learn all about them. My best buddy is Mitch...he lets me follow him and play with him and teaches me so much! So, a brother dog would help me come out of my shell even more! I love getting pets and scratches behind the ears and love a good back rub! When I first came here, I had never seen snow before, but believe it or not, I love the snow!! Nothing makes me happier than bounding thru the snow at full speed and bouncing all around, hoping someone will chase me! They say I'm a high energy guy...so, if you have a fenced yard with some space for me to cut loose, I will be the happiest dog in the land!! One playbow, and off I go! In the house, I love my soft bed and chew stuffies and will sometimes carry them around everywhere! I am a good boy in my crate and am getting real good at the house training part! I don't know any tricks yet, but I know I will learn some soon! I'm just so busy running and jumping and loving my chew toys right now! I can't wait to meet you and hear all about this place called a furever home

Inquire about Fennec

My name is Fennec and I am one special boy that really needs your help. I was a sled dog, I know pretty crazy because I have little to no fur but yes I lived in the snow. I started training for a sled when I was just a pup, but the thing with that is we are only alive to work, well atleast at the one I was raised on. Our day usually consists of waking up on our chains that are connected to dog house, getting geared up to the sleds, working all day, returning to our dog houses and then eating and going to bed. We didn't really get to live like dogs are supposed to. Some of the dogs really enjoyed it but I hated it. So one day I decided to break off my chain and escape the life I didn't enjoy. I ran free for quite awhile until I was finally trapped by some dog rescuers. I was pretty feral by this time not that I was very well socialized before but running wild made it worse. I was then transported to Edmonton where I was placed with WHARF to start my rehab. I am doing okay in my foster home but everything scares me as I have actually only ever been in a home for about a week out of my two year life. I am scared of people, cats, loud noises, pretty much everything that a dog is supposed to enjoy. My foster mom is very calm and patient with me and helping me work through all of my fears, which is a lot. I have no agression in me at all I am just scared, I am actually super sweet and they are really hoping that I will be able to trust people again. I mostly get through my day by following the other dogs around, I am learning the most from them. I follow them outside, back in the house, I walk like a gem on the leash but only if they are with me, I honestly just don't understand how to be a pet.......yet. My foster home makes sure that I always have a dog with me as they are helping me be confident and brave. I go to work with her everyday and just lay under her chair, getting pets, eating treats and trying to get accustomed to other people and new surroundings. I am ready for my new home but it will have to be a special one. I want a very quiet soft home with another dog and a human that will love me and be patient with me. I have had a very hard life and just need to grow with someone, I can learn to love and be someonescompanion but it will just take some time. I am a really good boy and am house and am house and kennel trained, I ride perfectly in the vehicle and with time I will learn my basic commands. Those I am just to scared to do. I may cower and hide behind something when you come and meet me but please just take some time to get to know me. I really want to try this whole pet thing out and I deserve to know what its like to be a dog. I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Come meet me but make sure you have a while to spend with me.

Fifa

Pending

My name is Fifa and I was picked up by bylaw as a stray. They think I was tied up outside all by myself and not treated very well as I am scared of most things. I am scared of men, cower at fast movements and sometimes submissive pee when there are loud noises. I am a very special girl that needs help building my confidence up and also being exposed to things that dogs are supposed to do like play, walking on the leash and just getting general pets and snuggles. I don't think I have ever done these things before because I am terrified of them all. I have bonded really well to my foster home because she is really nice to me and is trying to help mne actually be a dog. I am having fun in my temporary home and am really good with the other dogs and cats, they try to play with me and teach me things but it is taking a while for me to get used to it. Mostly so far I just run and hide behind my foster mom but I really want to get involved with the otehr dogs, it looks like a lot of fun. If you have time to spend with me and help me out I would love for you to come and meet me. I am spayed, vaccianted, de-wormed and tattooed. I am available to right family so please consider me!

Gemma

Inquire about Gemma

Hi! My name is Gemma! I spent most of my life in a shelter in Mexico and some very nice people told me there may be a chance I could have a home of my very own if I came with them! So I did!! I'm about 6 years old and think I'm very pretty, don't you? My foster mamas think I have some Heeler features in me or some Cattle Dog and maybe even something called a Corgi? I just call me a Mexican Special! I absolutely love to play fetch with my favourite ball and tug of war with a tug toy! I love going for walks even though I am still learning leash manners. I like to be the top dog and have all the attention because I'm so smart and pretty! A home where I'm the only dog would be great, as I am still learning how to behave better around other dogs. I don't think I've met a cat yet, so not too sure how that would go. I'm a very sensitive lady and listen really well! My new mom or dad should love to spend time with me and be a strong leader for me so that I can be even a better dog! I want to please my people and love to learn! I love to cuddle and snuggle on the couch with my people! Or to curl up on my doggie bed near you with my favourite chew toy would be like heaven for me! I am really good at 'sit' but not so good at the 'stay' part, yet! My house manners are getting better everyday and I am getting crate trained too! Why wouldn't you love me?

Inquire about Herman

Howdy, my name is Herman. I was found roaming the road lost and afraid. They tried to find my previous owners but they didn't want me. I love to snuggle and be around people so much. I donít understand why they didnít want me. I am a really great boy and love to be outside. I do need some work on my manners and kennel training but I learn fast I promise. I also CAN NOT go with cats, we just donít see eye to eye. I can be a really good companion. I am just looking for my furever home and someone to love me just as much as I can love you. Will You? I am neutuered, vaccianted, dewormed, and tattooed.

Inquire about Lilac

I'm Lilac and I came all the way from Saskatchewan where I was rescued off a reserve and then WHARF took me in. I am a pretty lucky girl to have been rescued before winter, it is hard enough scrounging for food in the summer let alone the winter and I have a nice warm home to sleep in. I am a really sweet girl and I get along great with everything, cats, dogs and people of all ages. I am good on the leash and will be good off leash once I get to know you. I am house and kennel trained and am learning my basics really quickly. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Please come and adopt me!!!

Mitch

Inquire about Mitch

I'm Mitch and I'm as handsome and charming as they get! I think there may be some hound dog in me somewhere or a little ridgeback! But, I'm just so sweet! I am about 3.5 years old and I came from the same place as Gemma, Badger and Congo in Mexico. Like them, I've spent most of my life in a shelter. But all I really want is a soft bed and some loves and pets and a tasty treat once in a while. I'm a very cuddly guy who just wants to be near his person. I don't run and jump as much as my buddy, Congo as I am moving a little slower these days. But, I love a good chew toy and lap to cuddle with! My foster mamas have been teaching me some agility jumps and something called 'weaves'? I'm not very good yet but I'm having so much fun learning! I am good with other dogs and I love my buddy Congo! He follows me everywhere and I try to teach him everything I know! I am very good with my house manners and crate training has been easy for me to learn! I love to go for walks and am learning proper leash manners. It is much colder here than where I come from so I am loving my new parka! I have not met any cats yet, so I can't tell you what I think about them. If you want a loving, cuddly, handsome, low energy, smart and gentle dog, then I'm your guy!

Inquire about Opal

I'm Opal and I just came into care from a reserve in Saskatchewan. I was rescued off there as they are trying to save as many dogs as possible before it gets to cold. I was sent to WHARF and I love it here so far as they are helping me get a family. I'm not sure what to expect because I am pretty sure I have never had a family before. I am loving it indoors curled up on my bed, fresh water and lots of food. It is a change from living outside and I never want to go back to that. IO am great with all dogs and cats and little kids. My personality has not fully come out yet as I am still not settled in but so far everything is great. I am now spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed and can't wait to meet my new family. Come and meet me!

Inquire about Rosy

My beautiful name is Rosy. I am the sweetest girl you will ever meet. Thereís no one out there quite like me. I havenít had the best life but thereís always second chances here at WHARF. I grew up in a hoarding house full of cats. It was very dirty which caused me to get chronic ear infections and they really hurt. I was in a lot of pain when I came into WHARF but they helped get me back to the happy healthy girl they knew I could be. I had a couple vet appointments which fixed my ears but because they were so bad and I was in pain for so long I am now deaf. Donít let that deter you though because I am thriving. I love being with people and I donít think someone can love snuggles as much as I do. Iím working on my leash manners, itís just really weird being on a leash. I am great in the house, with kids, other dogs, and with cats. I am spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, tattooed, and vet checked. Who wants to give me a second chance?

Inquire about Roxane

My name is Roxane. I am one friendly happy little girl. I donít really know what happened or where my family went but Iím now a member of WHARF. Bylaw found me frolicking in the grass off of hwy 43. I was super duper excited to have people around me again when I was picked up. I sure do love attention. But lets get down to business. I am not excellent on the leash but I am working up to that. I do know my basic manners like sit and stay. I am stupendous with other dogs, cats and kids. Walks are where its at, there my favourite. I may be little but I have lots of energy. Exploring and adventures are also quite awesome. Maybe thatís why I was found on the roads. Whoops. Anyways, I would really like to meet some new friends. Possibly get a new family out of it! I am spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.
