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

Almond

Age: 12
Shyness: 4
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!

Fender

Age: 10
Shyness: 2
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!

Ninja

retired husky sled dogs for adoption in Canmore, Alberta
Age: 13
Shyness: 2
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!

Shepard

Age: 9
Shyness: 1
Breed:
Canadian Indian x Siberian

Birthday –  May 26, 2012

New Adopteee – description coming soon.

Skrimshaw

Age: 12
Shyness: 5
Breed:
Unknown
Brother: Be-Bop

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!

Ukka

Age: 7
Shyness: 4
Breed:
Unknown
Brother: Ulrich
Requirement: Experienced dog owner

Birthday –  2014

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

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!
