Adopt a Snowy Owl Husky Hero!
“We currently have retired sled dogs who are looking for a loving home to spend their Golden Years! All of our dogs are healthy, up to date with vaccinations and we would love to give them to a loving home where they can continue to have a job…even if it’s keeping the couch warm! We consider retirement a reward for their many years of hard work as exceptional sled dogs. If you have space in your home and your heart for these sweet dogs please let us know.”

- If you are interested in adopting one of our huskies you must be able to come and meet with us and the husky of choice – we ask that you visit at least twice before we will adopt the dog out.
- We encourage interaction between the potential adopter and the husky before any commitment is made. We want to ensure that everyone is happy.
- It’s important to be very patient with the husky you bring into your home. Their whole life has been spent with their pack so being away from them will cause some nervousness. There has also been a core group of people who raised them so they will also feel insecure without them. This will usually last a week or so. It will take some time for the husky to learn things like stairs or how to walk on slippery surfaces like tile or wood. Because they lived outdoors they need to be taught not to use the washroom inside, they will not understand it’s wrong unless you tell them.
- If the adoption does not work out we ask that you bring the husky back to us so we can find a new home for him/her.
- You must register the husky with your own town and vet and ensure proper and prompt veterinary care.
- We ask that older dogs do not pull any weight.
- We are happy to supply the medical and pedigree information about the husky adopted.
- All of our huskies receive a full physical examination every year and are up to date with their vaccinations. They also receive rabies shot every 3 years and de-worming 3 times a year.
- Currently we feed the highest quality kibble to our huskies which is a kibble designed for working sled dogs. During the winter they eat a high fat/protein diet so we incorporate the meat with the kibble. This will not be necessary for an older dog that is becoming a house pet. You can continue to feed a raw diet as that is what’s best for them, however, they will not need a very high fat diet. We recommend feeding a high quality feed that does not include chicken or beef by-products in their ingredients. A supply of fresh clean water at all times is a necessity.
- Regular grooming is very important as huskies have very thick fur coats and need to be groomed in order to maintain a clean and healthy coat. Dogs have natural oils in their fur that keep it healthy so bathing your dog too often will strip them of these oils and create a dry coat.
