Retired Husky Heroes for Adoption in Canmore, Alberta

After hanging up their harnesses, these members of our pack are looking for their fur-ever homes! Each 4-legged member of our family is unique and we want to ensure that we find them the best home to spend their golden years, whether that’s backpacking adventures or TV nights on the couch!

Just like people, some of our dogs take a little longer to warm up to strangers. Our ‘shyness’ rating gives potential adopters insight into each dog’s personality, 1 being very outgoing, 5 being very shy. As part of the adoption process, potential adopters will spend lots of time getting to know the dogs. Our adoption process is very selective, and we decline any candidates that don’t meet our retired husky hero’s special requirements. For more information about our adoption program, please email adoptions@snowyowltours.com.

Scroll for cute photos! Male husky dogs are first, followed by the females.

Male Husky Heroes Looking for a Furever Home

Ad-Rock

Age: 1
Shyness: 1 (not shy at all)
Breed:
Siberian Husky

Birthday – September 1st, 2021

New adoptee… description coming soon.

Almond

Age: 13
Shyness: 4 (very shy)
Breed:
Canadian Indian & Siberian Husky

Birthday –  July 2009

Almond is a fantastic, loyal companion. While he can be nervous about new experiences, he’s working on being brave and trying new things! He can be a bit of a leash hog (coming from years of being a top wheel dog) so he needs someone comfortable with working on leash training. Almond would love to fill his golden years with light skijoring and hiking!

Find out more about Almond on @senioradventurepups Instagram post #1 & post #2

Aramis

Age: 7
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed:
Canadian Indian x Siberian

Birthday – July 3rd, 2015

This musketeer has decided to quit his day job and seek an early retirement! Aramis is excited to share some new experiences with his new family- so much so that he might even show you his signature howl! You might be wondering what could make Aramis’ bark so unique. This sweet boy uses his whole body to do it and even pairs it with some tap dancing!

Burlap

Age: 8
Shyness: 2 (not shy)
Breed:
Alaskan Husky

Birthday –  June 2, 2014

Meet Burlap! This guy might be a little rough around the edges, but he makes up for it with his stellar personality! As much as Burlap would love to continue his career pulling sleds, his body is telling him it is time to hang up that harness early. Burlap would love to spend his retirement days going on easy walks and cuddling up with his humans. Could Burlap be the dog for you?

Fender

Age: 11
Shyness: 2 (not shy)
Breed:
Canadian Indian

Birthday – July 17, 2011

Fender loves spending time with his two-legged pals more than anything! He has a reputation for being a bit of a “tough guy” in the kennel but deep down has a heart of gold. This guitar hero would gladly accept belly rubs and ear scratches for hours on end, but also has some serious pep in his step. Fender would love to find someone to take him on all the adventures during his retirement years!

Howie

Age: 10
Shyness: 3 (a little shy)
Breed:
Siberian Racing Husky
Siblings: Tommy

Birthday –  March 29, 2012

If we had to describe Howie in one word it would be quirky! Howie’s personality is more akin to a cat, rather than sled dog! He likes to do things to his own tune, loves his own space and won’t be seeking you out for affection all day, he’d rather be curled up in a nice warm spot snoozing away. Howie is more than happy to do a bunch of exploring, have a quick cuddle and then catch a quick cat nap!

Mantra

Age: 8
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed: Seppala Siberian
Siblings: Allura and Katana

Birthday: October 4th, 2013

Ninja

Age: 13
Shyness: 2 (not shy)
Breed:
Inuit-Siberian Husky

Birthday –  September 2008

Ninja is looking for more than just video games in his golden years! He can appreciate a good lounge day but is also ready to hit the trail (as long as you bring snacks)! He’s a cuddly giant who has one of the biggest appreciations for belly rubs in the whole kennel (and that’s saying a lot). Are you a belly rub connoisseur? If so, you may be the perfect match!

Rouger

Age: 9
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed:
Seppala Siberian

Birthday – November 11, 2012

Meet Rouger! Not the most energetic of the four-legged Snowy Owl crew, until you get him on a leash that is! During playtime, Rouger prefers to do a lap around the kennel and then spend the rest of the day lounging. Rouger’s favourite time is nap time and in Rouger’s world, that is all the time! Rouger is excited to meet a family that will help him conquer leash training and hardwood floors!

Shepard

Age: 10
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed:
Canadian Indian x Siberian

Birthday –  May 26, 2012

Shepard is an old soul looking for an adventurous companion to explore with! This loyal, outgoing boy loves his two-legged friends and is not afraid to show his affection. Shepard can get a little jealous with sharing attention and is not afraid to tell his four-legged friends to wait until he is done getting all the cuddles! Whether it be a long hike or a snooze on the couch, Shepard is your guy!

Skrimshaw

Skrimshaw
Age: 12
Shyness: 5 (very shy)
Breed:
Siberian Husky

Birthday –  August 2009

Skrimshaw loves nothing more than lounging in the sun, no matter how thick his coat is. This regal gentleman was definitely not one of our hardest working sled dogs and will very much prefer a relaxed retirement home. He does enjoy playing with his neighbours but spends most of his free run relaxing away from the crowds. If you’re looking for a zen master, Skrimshaw may be the one for you!

Find out more about Skrimshaw on @senioradventurepups Instagram post.

Ukka

Age: 7-8 (exact birthdate unknown)
Shyness: 5 (very shy)
Breed:
Unknown

Birthday – 2015

Ukka has had a rough past prior to joining our pack, but you wouldn’t know it! He loves nothing more than romping around with the most playful pups during free run! He decided he would rather relax than pull a sled, so he’s up for early adoption. Ukka would be a fantastic hiking companion and has energy in the tank to pull you up those mountains!

Female Husky Heroes Looking for a Furever Home

Allura

Age: 8
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed:
Seppala Siberian
Siblings: Katana

Birthday – October 4th, 2013

Just like her sister Katana, Allura is small and sweet! Allura loves playtime with her canine friends. When she is not running around the yard with her pals, Allura is pretty content to do her own thing. Allura can’t wait to find a family to go adventuring with and show her what retired life is all about!

Dior

Age: 9
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed:
Canadian Inuit x Indian x Siberian

Birthday – May 27, 2013

This designer gal is pretty and she knows it!  Dior is an absolute sweetheart who enjoys spending time with all of her four-legged and two-legged coworkers. This girl enjoys all the comforts life has to offer. While Dior may not be up for climbing mountains, she would happily spend her time doing low-key hikes and receive all the bum scratches from her humans. Dior is ready to hang up her harness and experience all the luxuries retirement has to offer!

Jet

Age: 10
Shyness: 5 (very shy)
Breed:
Siberian Husky
Sister: Joan

Birthday – Spring 2012

Nicknamed the ‘mice’ of the kennel, Jet and her sister Joan are two peas in a pod! They can usually be found cuddling in a house during free run or taking the occasional stroll to say hello to their favourite humans. These ladies may take some extra time to warm up to new people but once you win them over you’ll be friends for life!

Joan

Age: 10
Shyness: 4 (shy)
Breed:
Siberian Husky
Sister: Jet

Birthday – Spring 2012

Joan and her sister Jet are affectionately known as the ‘mice’ of the kennel. They are fantastic lead dogs and love nothing more than to run together or cuddle in a dog house. These two ladies would love to be adopted as a pair and would be best suited for a female companion. They will definitely be shy at first, but with time their quirky sides will shine!

Katana

Age: 8
Shyness: 1 (not very shy)
Breed:
Seppala Siberian
Sibling: Allura

Birthday – October 4, 2013

Katana embodies the phrase “good things come in small packages.” While she may be pocket sized compared to most of our husky heroes, this little ball of energy is sure to keep you on your toes! Katana is looking for a family to go exploring with and who will be more than happy to accept all the kisses she gives!
