We can't believe Nova is still waiting for her forever family!! A petite female Husky at just 48 pounds, 5 yrs old, beautiful red fur and stunning blue eyes! Although she is doing well and very much loved in her foster home, we would love to find her a permanent home soon! Our Christmas present to her! Nova has not had much luck in her short life. At just 5 yrs old, she has been abandoned then picked up and placed in an overcrowded shelter. From there she was bounced around a few times in inappropriate homes before finally coming into our care here on the Island. Understandably, she is nervous around new people, especially men. However, once she has settled down and you have gained her trust, she is a cuddly lap-dog! She loves to cuddle and watch TV as well as run around outside and wrestle with her Husky foster sister. Foster parents are working on recall, but say she can sit and shake a paw for treats. She is a very sweet dog and certainly deserves someone to love her forever and treat her like family. Although she has had an upsetting life in the past, she has shown resilience and has settled down well into her foster family's schedule. She walks well on leash but has a high prey-drive. She is very interested in rabbits, deer, and birds – no surprise there for a Husky. She travels well in a vehicle. She will excel with someone familiar with the breed, love and a permanent home!! Great with medium to large confident dogs. In fact, she is a lot more confident when they are around so we would like to find her a home with another dog.

Foster or ideally Foster to Adopt needed ASAP for Lucy and Rookie together! It would be great if they do not have to move again, so foster to adopt is our first choice. Sadly their mom has been hospitalized and will not be able to take them back and they have been placed in our care. They are mother and son Min Pin mix breed dogs. Lucy is 10 yrs old approximately 12 pounds, and Rookie is 8 yrs old approximately 13 pounds. Foster to adopt or foster family must be able to take them to our vet in Duncan or Victoria for exam and for any subsequent visits they may need. Family reports they are in good health and have seen a vet regularly, however all of our intakes must see our vet to determine overall health before any adoption is finalized. As they are 8 and 10 yrs of age, there is a very good chance that we will have to do a dental cleaning and extractions on them. Family reports to us that they are very friendly, but very shy. They enjoy their walks, but also like to sleep a lot. They are accustomed to being with their mom most of the time as she was a retired senior. So a calm home with retired or work from home family is what is needed for them now too. And they must stay together - losing your caregiver is bad enough, so we want this bonded pair to have each other for comfort and confidence. We are told they are low maintenance dogs and like to be around people. They have not lived with cats, but family tells us that they think they would be fine with cats. As shy dogs, we prefer a calm quiet home home without small children, however visiting grandchildren would be fine as they have no bite history. If you can help give Lucy and Rookie a loving retirement home together and have time to spend with them, please send in an adoption application www.nadrs.org/adopt or a foster application www.nadrs.org/volunteer show less
