Clyde

Clyde

Inquire about Clyde

My name is Clyde and I have been very neglected which has turned me into a special dog. I was transfered from another rescue where she kept me in a kennel for 23.5 hrs a day with a blanket over it so I had no outside interaction. She thought she was doing me good and fixing me but she was only making things worse. I wasnít learning anything. All I did was spin circles in my kennel for hours upon hours trying to burn off some of my puppy energy. I have been in WHARFís care for a few months now because I just needed some time to learn how to be a dog. They put me in a large fenced area to give me some time to burn off some energy but I was having a hard time not spinning even though I wasnít in my kennel, I was so used to it and it was just part of my day to day exercise. One day I started running and running and finally burnt off some very pent up energy, now that I know I am not going to be kennelled for hours a day we are starting to work on my manners. I am turning into a really sweet boy, am a bit jumpy but if you tell me not to I stop immediately. I have not been tested with cats yet but am good with respectful children that know dog boundaries. Since I have been excluded from the outside world and not exposed to dogs at all I donít really know how to act around them and seem to be a bit much for some dogs. I am being housed with smaller submissive dogs but anything that tries to dominate me is not a good fit. I do love puppies and will play with them for hours. Anyone that is interested in me please understand that I am still learning how to be a dog and if I wasnít rescued when I was it could have been a very bad outcome for me. WHARF wanted to give me a chance because I deserved to have a fair shot at having a normal life. My ideal home would be an active family (I have a lot of running and playing to catch up on) with no pets but if you have pets I just need some time to get used to them. I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Come and meet me please!!

Coco

Coco

Pending Adoption

Coco came to wharf from a partner group that pulls dogs in need and places them in rescue. She is great with kids and is house trained and will go in a kennel without issues but will bark bark if something walks by. She is an active dog and very curious. This is also a bit problematic for her with the wrong handler. She has a dominant personality so needs a handler that is confident on leash. She really good with other dogs and has spent a lot of time at the dog park. Her foster home has cats that she can be managed around but a home without cats is recommended. She is spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattoed.

Colette

Inquire about Colette

My name is Colette and I am really cute and a perfect medium sized girl. I have been in care for quite a while with little to no interest in me. I came into care from a northern community and my foster home really enjoys me and my outgoing personality, I kind of have a split personality but donít worry they are both great. When I am outside I let all my energy out and can play and run for hours and then when I am in the house I am calm and relaxed and really like to snuggle. I am great with kids and cats but like to pick and choose my dog friends. So far I only enjoy the company of boy dogs and ones that arenít going to try and dominate me. When I am outside I like to be the boss but donít worry inside I know that you are the boss I am very respectful of my family. I am also being fostered with lots of livestock and I find them quite boring so I donít bother with them. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. ADOPT ME!

Inquire about Crackers

Woof Woof!! Iím Crackers and I came into care from another rescue that was feeling a bit over run. I am a happy go lucky boy that has not had a lot of training but with me being young I am already picking up on a lot of good behaviours. I am house and kennel trained but need some work on the leash and need some reminders not to jump. I am very obedient and listen to commands very well. I love all dogs and am good with cats and donít seem to mind the livestock either. I do need a wooden fence as I am very smart and get out of chainlink, but I only do it so that I can be with you. I have a very beautiful coat with unique spots and colouring. There are a lot of little kids where I am being fostered and we get along great except I just want to lick them clean. I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Adopt me today!

Inquire about Diego

I'm Diego and I'm looking for my forever family. My past is unknown but Wharf thinks I might have been hit by a car at some point because I have a limp and arthritis in my hips and tail. I've been checked out by a vet and they say that my limp is just a part of my life. I can still do stairs and jump in the SUV. My teeth are worn and my eyes are a bit cloudy but I still have a spring in my step. I will wag my tail when I see you, I'm a good listener, I'm house trained and kennel trained. I get along well with my foster dog brother and the cat. I'm gentle with kids. I have great energy if you want to take me for a walk. I also like to walk myself. If I see a way out of the yard I'll take myself for an adventure. Foster mom says that's a no-no. If you would like to be my friend while I enjoy the rest of my life I will be loyal and loving and make every day we have together happy. Wharf is a little worried that it will take a long time for me to get adopted because of my limp but I'm not worried, when you meet me you will love me even if I walk a little funny. Foster mom says if you adopt me she will send me with a memory foam doggie bed. Memory foam feels so good to sleep on! I'm neutered, vaccinated, and de-wormed. Please ask to meet me today!

Holly

Inquire about Holly

Miss Holly came from a Northern Saskatchewan Community, she was a injured, yearling stray that spent her days hanging out at the school watching the kids. She had a fractured pelvis, an old injury. With time she learned to Hop, Hop, Hop to get around. She is truly resiliant, and a doll of a girl. Even though she is young, holly loves to relax and lay around. Dont let that fool you; she is also a little bit of a goof ball and loves to play with people and other dogs. She loves children, and is very curious in them and laying close by to watch. Holly is good with cats, even mean, grumpy ones. She can be protective sometimes at first meets of some new dogs, but a simple correction to her from her people and she will know it is safe. After that she will soon be playing away with the new dog. Holly recieved her FHO on May 9th, and has already had her staples removed. Even though she is all fixed up, she will still hop around, sometimes more then others and sometimes not at all because of habit and muscle deterioration from the long length of time she had the fracture. Her cute lil hop, hop, hop might always be her sweet signature move. ??A year long, alone, and injured, Our Miss Holly is ready for her new start, her new family, and is #totallyadoptable !! ????? Holly is very well behaved in the kennel and hasn't had any accidents in the home. She is a quick learner and is very food motivated. She is spayed, tattooed and vaccinated and ready to cuddle on the couch with you.

Ivory

Ivory

Inquire about Ivory

I am a very friendly girl who would make a great addition to your family! I am house trained and used to kids of all ages. When I met a baby I knew not to knock her over and kissed her gently, even when she was getting my fur. I'll give anyone a kiss, young or old. I'm perfect with other dogs. I love, love, love to snuggle you and keep you company. I'll follow you around and make sure you are safe. I have medium energy and would love daily walks and playtime. I can jump really high and I'm curious so you will need a six foot high fence to keep me from escaping the yard. My foster mom thinks I'm used to eating human food because I love to watch you cook and when it's meal time I'll be right there at your elbow incase you drop anything. I love shoes. I don't chew shoes but when I'm happy I like to run around the house with a shoe in my mouth. If you need to leave the house in a hurry you should keep your shoes in a closet. I think it's a pretty fun game to hide everyone's shoes but foster mom says it's not THAT much fun for her. Hmmmm. I can't be in a house with cats. I'm really interested in cats and I think they are pretty fun to chase. I don't want to eat the cat at my foster house but I definitely don't want to leave her alone. She gives me a high five in the face with her claws but I'm pretty sure that means she likes to play chase with me too. Foster mom says I shouldn't go to a house with cats because I like to catch them too much. I had a big wound on my tummy and leg but it's healing now and my stitches should be gone soon. Because of my stitches I'm having a bit of a bad hair day but foster mom says it will grow back soon and I'll look great. I am house trained but need to work on my leash manners and staying down. I know how to sit and am a pretty good listener. I can walk on a leash but I like to to pull you if you don't walk fast enough. My bio says I'm 4 but I might be younger or maybe just young at heart. I have lots of energy and personality! I'm spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. Would I be a good fit in your family?

Julio

Julio

Inquire about Julio

This is Quincy and Julio, they are purebred standard poodles. They are both 9 years old although Quincy is about 7 months older than Julio. These dogs are amazing and a pleasure to be around. They were surrendered into care because their Dad could no longer care for them. They are very well behaved, they LOVE toys and play like puppies but they also love cuddling on the couch or better yet in bed!! They walk beautifully on a leash, love car rides and behave perfectly!! They are living with cats in their foster home but they do want to chase them a little and like to get them cornered if they can. They know tricks and can sit, shake a paw, lie down and be sent to their beds. They love squeaky toys and plush toys and regularly pull out the toys from the doggy toy bin at their foster home tho they've never touched anything that wasn't theirs as of yet!! They love walks and are great at running with a bike!! They love each other so much and we hope to honour their dad's wishes by placing them together so please message me for special adoption fees if you will consider adopting both together. Julio is the clown, super playful and goofy, Quincy is the quiet cuddly type who rests his head in your lap and closes his eyes. The NEGATIVE thing is that Quincy can not be adopted to a home with children as he has nipped the children in his foster home on more than one occasion as he gets nervous when rougher play happens or he is caught off guard. The foster home would LOVE to keep both these poodles as they are the perfect pets except for the fact that Quincy can not be trusted with kids. He has not broken skin, but he has left bruises and therefore cannot be trusted.

Inquire about Kobe

My name is Kobe and I'm one of the dogs from the hoarding situation with Frieda and Joyce. I'm between 2 1/2 and 4 years old, and about 40lbs. I'm good with dogs, cats and kids. I'm very timid, but super sweet. I'm somewhat unsure of men as they are so big, but I'm sure treats would help me bond with you! I would do better in a home with other dogs as I am more comfortable with them and come out of my shell more quickly. Once I do, I'm a typical bouncy pup. My whole body wags along with my tail. I've had good recall and have been good off leash once I bond with you. I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed!

Meg

Meg

Inquire about Meg

This is Meg. She is about a year and a half and is a sweet heart. Being Komodor/Maremma cross she should be a livestock dog but she is not. She just wants to be around people and will jump fences to get to them. If she is around people she is wonderful. She knows how to sit and is usually good about not jumping but can forget when she is excited. She is not at all Alpha which can cause her some trouble with other dogs as she can get picked on. She would make a wonderful yard dog on a farm or acreage. Her big bark keeps the yard free of coyotes. She doesn't wander as long as she knows where her people live. She's good with cats, cows, sheep but don't trust her with poultry, she likes to play with them and it doesn't usually end well. She had been good with kids but is timid of strangers, especially men. She warms up eventually, faster if you crouch down to pet her at first. She shies away from too much chaos but doesn't show aggression, instead she will go and hide. Though sh!e doesn't try to be dominant she will fight back if threatened by another dog and is a formidable force. She would be fantastic in a one dog family.

Inquire about Mirage

Mirage here! I was rescued from the forest fires in a northern community in Saskatchewan. I am a really happy goofy girl and even though I am solid white I love to roll in the mud and go swimming. So I spend most of my time being a bit grey, but baths are okay as I love water. I donít mean to get dirty I just canít help myself especially when I am playing with other dogs. I am great with dogs, I have lived with cats but I do like to play with them and if they run I will chase them. I am very well mannered and polite in the house. I am good in my kennel and am house trained. I am being fostered with kids and play very gentle with them. I love walks and I am pretty active probably from the Husky breed in me so an active family would be ideal. Toys and chews are a must especially if you donít want some of your things to go missing. I canít wait to find my new home and show them how wonderful of a girl I really am. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed.

Inquire about Ralph

Ralph and Stoney came to WHARF together after their home was burned down in a fire and they were left behind by their owner. Ralph is a sweet boy! He may be older but he still loves to pretend he is a cute cuddly lap dog. He is very curious and not sure about his surroundings yet. He does behave very well in the house. He doesn't really like the kennel but also loves going in the car but I think that is just because he never wants to leave your side!! He has a hard time seeing when it's dark outside but responds very well to the sound of your voice. He is a gentle gentle dog and is being foster with little kids, dogs and cats. His foster homes just adores this old man. Will someone please just let this boy live the rest of his life out in a comfortable calm home where he can ust get lots of love and never get abandoned again. He is neutered vaccinated, de-wormed and microchipped.

Inquire about Sawyer

Hey there, I am Sawyer. I came from a really bad hoarding house where I was locked in a really dark shed with multiple dogs. The windows were all blacked out and we got very limited food with absolutely no human interaction. I have been in care for a couple months already but it took a while for me to decompress and get used to a family. I wouldnít let anyone touch me for a while but now when I get pets my tail isnít tucked and I donít cowered and shake. I am very curious about everything and am always interested in why the other dogs want to be around humans so much. I was treated really badly but finally understand that they arenít all bad. I like getting brushed and I love treats. I am good with cats and kids and would do best in a home with other dogs so they can help me get used to my new environment. I do really enjoy my kennel and will sleep in there even if the door is left open. I really just need a calm quiet home where my new human will give me some time to get used to everything but also smother me with love. I might not be the most outgoing dog when you come and meet me but I promise I will bond with you and wont want to leave your side. I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed.
