Retired Husky Heroes for Adoption

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! Female husky dogs are first followed by the males.

Female Husky Heroes Looking for a Home

Firestar

Retired husky sled dog for adoption in Canmore, Alberta
Age: 12
Shyness: 1
Breed:
Siberian Husky

Birthday – August 1, 2007

Firestar has one of the most outgoing personalities in the kennel! She knows what she wants (pets) and isn’t afraid to tell you. While she is one of our oldest husky heroes, Firestar has some serious pep in her step and still loves going for moderate hikes and long walks. That is, if she can relax and enjoy some belly rubs after!

Indy

Retired husky sled dog for adoption in Canmore, Alberta
Age: 9
Shyness: 1
Breed:
Alaskan Husky

Birthday – December 2, 2011

Indy is our resident feed station guard dog! She is originally from a kennel in Wyoming and didn’t feel totally comfortable during free run when she first arrived. In order to distance herself from the pack, she would sit at the feed station and receive pets from her human pals. Indy has since settled in and enjoys the occasional roam during free run but mostly enjoys her claimed spot. She can be quite sassy with other dogs, so a single-dog home will most likely be best for this lady!

Jet

Retired husky sled dog for adoption in Canmore, Alberta
Age: 9
Shyness: 5
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

Retired husky sled dog for adoption in Canmore, Alberta
Age: 9
Shyness: 4
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!

Peach

Age: 10
Shyness: 3
Breed:
Canadian Indian/Siberian cross

Sustrugi

Age: 11
Shyness: 3
Breed:
Candian Inuit Husky

Born – 2009

Sustrugi is our resident Canadian Inuit Husky. This means she has alllllll the fur and prefers to spend as much time outside as possible! Strudel, as we like to call her, absolutely loves the dog park and going on adventures with our staff. It would be best for her to not have stairs in her retirement home – no matter how hard she tries, she still hasn’t mastered them!

Trot

Age: 13
Shyness: 5
Breed:
Siberian Husky

Bowser

retired husky sled dogs for adoption in Canmore, Alberta
Age: 10
Shyness: 3
Breed:
Canadian Indian & Siberian Husky

Birthday – April 1, 2011

Bowser was one of our very best lead dogs during his prime years! He loves nothing more than a nice long cuddle, or to sleep with his human pals in the cabin. During free run, he does his best to ignore the rest of his pack and comes in straight for the hugs! Bowser will make an excellent companion, but due to some reconstructive surgery, he’s looking forward to a relaxing retirement home. Walks along the river or through the woods will be perfect for him!

Splinter

Age: 11
Shyness: 5
Breed:
Canadian Indian

Birthday – June 2010

This sassy guy is looking to swap his title of King of the Frisk Pen to Conquerer of the Couch! Master Splinter isn’t all about snoozing however he loves to play with other dogs, and stroll through the woods. He’ll make an excellent sidekick, even if he seems begrudging at first. One of his favourite games is to pretend not to hear when you call his name, then sneak up on you from behind. What a trickster!
