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 Devin

My name is Devin. I am a stunning young lad. I was found scrounging for food near the Saskatchewan reserve. They said it looked like I had escaped from somewhere. They donít have a lot of information on me but one thing they do know is that Iím the sweetest most loving guy. I am glorious with other dogs, cats and Iíve never really been around little humans. I am super friendly and always have time for hugs and kisses. I am kennel trained and I pull just a little on the leash. I enjoy going hiking and on adventures. I have the biggest heart and it has a couple more spaces to fill. Are you wanting to complete my heart? I am neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

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.

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?

Indigo

Inquire about INdigo

My name is Indigo and I am a big beautiful girl. I came into care because a man saw that my friend and I were tied up outside and always had frozen water and no food. He drove past every day for two weeks and nothing ever changed. He decided to go to the house and ask if the owner would surrender us to him. Our owner said yes because he didnít want us. The nice man took us to his house but due to living circumstances we couldnít stay there. I am an amazing dog who is in search of a companion. Iím a very adventurous girl and love a good romp in the snow. If you have any livestock and cats I am definitely not the dog for you though. I am awesome in my kennel and learning not to pull on my leash. Are you my family? I am spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

My name is Judson and I have had a really tough life so far. I have spent the last couple years in a 4x6 dog cage with numerous amounts of other dogs. The ASPCA was contacted when they found out what was going on and got me out of there. I couldnít be happier. I am a very gentle and deserving little boy. Iím very scared because I have never had human contact before. Iím very sweet and with a little love I know I can be your very best friend. WHARF is all about second chances and I canít wait for mine. Do you have a place in your heart for me? I am neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

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!

My name is Trey and I love people so much. My life has been a little chaotic for the last couple years. The ASPCA helped me out because I was living in a 4x6 dog cage with countless other dogs. I am super excited to be given a second chance and to see the world. I am a very happy and adventurous boy. I love long walks and playing with my toys. I love being with people including kids. I am great with other dogs as well. My only down fall is that cats and I are a big no no. Do you need a partner in crime? I am neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

Inquire about Wallie

My name is Wallie and I am one strikingly beautiful boy. I am super outgoing and love to run. Thatís probably why I was found running around on the Saskatchewan reserve. I just really enjoy adventures and seeing new things. I am great with other dogs. Cats and I are just not the best of friends which means that I absolutely CAN NOT go with cats. I am still learning all my manners and Iím doing great on the leash. I get a little sad when I have to go in my kennel but really who wouldnít. Who wants a great adventure companion? I am neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.

Inquire about Whitley

My name is Whitley and I am the sweetest. I was handed over to the ASPCA after living in a 4x6 dog cage with a whole bunch of other dogs. It was an awful life and affection was never given. I longed for the day that I would be loved. I am a great little girl who is just looking for a furever family. I do settle in fast and I love to learn. I am great with dogs and small children but should not go to a home with cats because I like to play to rough with them. I enjoy running around and going for walks. Do you have an empty spot in your home with my name on it? I am spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and tattooed.
