North was surrendered by a family who decided they did not have enough time for him once they had a child. There was a risk that he would end up in a government shelter if a rescue did not step forward to take him under their wing. We believe he is a Samoyed X Husky. 

What we know about North is limited to the information our boarding facility passes on to us. What they have told us is as follows:

North is a really happy, bouncy boy who is confident around people and other dogs. His confidence means that we think he would be happy either as the only dog or with another dog. He thrives off human attention the most!

Having been in a home before, he is used to walking on a lead and doesn’t appear to have any issues with resource guarding. However, we do ask that all adopters and fosterers be prepared for some resource guarding and happy to work on it

Typical of a snow dog, he has a lot of energy so he would do well in an active home with a good-sized garden with an adopter who is prepared to not only help him expend his physical energy but also exercise his brain with lots of enrichment. Snow dogs can also be very vocal so, whilst he does not not appear to be overly loud, his adopter should be prepared for a snow dog’s voice.

Although he has been in a home before, since being surrendered he has been staying in boarding around lots of other dogs and without constant access to the outdoors for toiletting so his adopter should expect to have to reacclimatise him to a home environment and be prepared to train from the basics again. We expect all of our adopters and fosterers to understand that dogs need time to settle into a new environment and routine and so they need to be flexible and allow the dog to make mistakes as they learn to be safe and loved in a new country and home. 

North is a fantastic dog who will make a lovely companion for the right home that wants to  love him forever.

Whilst breed experience is helpful, it is not necessary. The most important thing we are looking for in applications is clear commitment to the dog, understanding that their behaviour can change and the promising to support them through it all.
