About Me:

Hi! I'm Nymeria!
I am new to WAG and have lots to learn! Keep an eye on my profile as I'm sure the staff will get to know my likes and dislikes the more time I spend here!

I am a young girl who unfortunately had to say goodbye to my family as their situation changed and could no longer provide me with the best care.

I will need a family who is very patient as it may take me a while to adjust to another home. I can be a little timid when meeting new people, but I will warm up, I just need to feel comfortable first.

I hope that my forever family with think of training as a fun thing to do together! I LOVE to play fetch! It is my most favorite game! I do love a good round of tug as well!

I can be a little bouncy and vocal when excited, but who isn't when they're stoked!

I will thrive in a calm, nurturing environment with people that will pay attention to any signs of anxiety I may show.

I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years.
I can't wait to find my forever home.

 

My Perfect Match

- Is willing to take a few trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home.
- Loves goofy loveable quirky girls
- Will love to play fetch at least once a day, if you have a safe fenced in yard, that would be the biggest bonus!
- Will continue with training - I will need a post-adoption training appointment with a WAG approved trainer
- Able to provide a calm, nurturing environment with people that will pay attention to any signs of anxiety I may show.
- Lots of patience!
- Will be strong! I can sometimes be a bit of a puller on walks, but have a fancy new harness that should help me learn.
- Will love me forever no matter what, quirks and all!
- I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years.

My Story:

Johnny

Breed: Labrador/Husky mix
Gender: Male
Age: 7 months old
Size: Medium, but growing still!

 

Energy Level: Very high
Training Goals: Post adoption training session mandatory, Johnny will need help to learn basic manners as well as helping him adjust to his new environment
House trained? Working on it!
Kids? 10+ years, home needs to be a calm environment

Cats? No, I will chase them
Dogs? Unknown
Medical Needs: Basic vaccinations will need to be finished, then keeping up with routine care

About Me:

Here's Johnny!

I am a young pup who still has LOTS to learn! I have been loving being at WAG, I go out for awesome adventures, I get to go to the river, smell lots, pee on lots and see new things.

I am a very energetic boy, I love to do zoomies, I jump up on you when I am excited, the girls are helping me remember
that isn't polite.

I'm just beginning to get used to be indoors, it takes me a long time to settle inside, even longer if it's a place I've never been before. I can be a bit of a busy body and will need supervision or I may be tempted to chew something I'm not supposed to. That being said, if you're around and not paying attention to me, I may bug you until you do. I can still be a little mouthy when I am playing, lots of redirection to toys and chews.

I am hoping that my forever family will be awesome humans, lots of play, adventures, cuddles, but most importantly I need them
to be patient.

Some new things can make me a bit unsure and I need my family to be understanding that they'll need to work with me during
this big life change, hire a trainer and give me time to adjust.

My perfect match
- Be able to commit to coming to visit me a few times at the shelter before going into my forever home
- A family with patience
- Understanding that a lot of things are new to me, I may need time to adjust to my new surrounding
- Be proactive with my training, using a WAG approved trainer that will help me gain confidence and give my family the
tools they will need when I come across something that is scary to me
- Be ready for the 10+ year commitment
- Keep me healthy and happy with proper exercise and yearly vet visits.

My Story:

I was a stray that was found by a concerned citizen, my life before WAG is a bit of a mystery. I am a young pup who hopes to find his forever family soon!

Tank – Adopted March 2021!

IMG_3906

TANK

Breed: Shepherd/Collie mix
Gender: Male
Age: 6 months old
Size: Medium

 

Energy Level: Medium/High
Training Goals: Basic Manners
House trained? Yes
Kids? 10 years+

Cats? Unknown
Dogs? Yes
Medical Needs: Ongoing care while his amputation heals

About Me:

Hi, I'm Tank!

I have only spent a short time at WAG, I've mostly been with my foster family, they are great people with other dogs, although, I think I may be a little too playful for them.

I hope that I get to find my forever family soon, my foster family wanted to pass along some information about me -

He is very sweet which we all know.
He would also do great with a couple who wanted to camp, paddle board, swim, canoe etc…. All he needs is a life jacket!
He loves the fenced back yard so that he can explore. I realize that’s a tall order around here, but you never know…..
He wants to be everyone’s friend. He loves people and interacting with everyone and being part of what’s going on in the house.
He’s not a big eater, but really enjoys hard chews such as bully sticks and you can entice him to eat with a little canned food, salmon oil or dehydrated or cooked meat on top.
He likes carrots to chew on.
He is getting used to the car but must be strapped into a harness, otherwise he will want to ride in your lap!
He really loves soft, plus SQUEAKY toys. He chews on them, but doesn’t totally destroy them. He loves hearing the squeakers, but doesn’t do it enough to drive you crazy.
He hasn’t touched anything in the house he shouldn’t, but I make sure he’s got something to do, or I think being a curious puppy that he could run in to trouble and find something to chew on
If he is doing something that he shouldn’t,  he is easily re-directed.
He’s pretty much move in ready for either a family with respectful kids  – He would thrive in a busy household. He loves the interaction.
He would be a great second dog, if there is another playful dog in the house.  But, he could also be the only dog getting all of the love and attention as long as he got to go to the dog park to play with other dogs – he’s super social and curious. He hasn’t met a stranger yet.

My Perfect Match

  • Able to provide a nurturing environment with people that will pay attention to how I'm feeling
  • Is ready for the 10+ year commitment
  • Loves goofy loveable quirky boys
  • Will continue with basic training - I will need a post-adoption training session to help me ease into my new surroundings
  • Lots of patience!
  • Adjust to activities that will work for me, low impact sports and swimming, or whatever I might enjoy!
  • We use food as a motivator!
  • Will love me forever no matter what, quirks and all!
  • I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years.

 

My Story:

My name is Tank, and my story is truly one of “sometimes life just happens”. I was well-loved and well cared for by my family when I had a life-changing accident.
A week before I was to get neutered, I was playing in my yard and I got my leg caught in a pallet. My family brought me to the vet right away, and we received some bad news that my leg was broken. This unfortunately was quite serious and not a simple break. Dr. White in Pemberton reached out to specialists in Vancouver and Squamish, and WAG jumped in to help too!
After much analysis, my family took me to Squamish where Dr. Lane (an incredible orthopedic surgeon) at Eagleview Animal Hospital operated but could not save my leg. He really tried, but the break was in such a bad place. If I were to live a happy, pain-free life, this was the absolute best course of action. Dr. Lane and his team were beyond awesome and took great care of me while I was in the hospital. Eagleview and Dr. White have become such lifesavers supporting, and working with WAG in these difficult situations.
My family and WAG had lots of discussions about what would be best for me. I will need some special care and attention, especially for the next few months. It will take time for me to get strong again and to learn how to live as a three-legged dog, but I’m young and I know I can do it!! Though heartbreaking for my family, they simply could not manage the costs of this ordeal and they know I will need a different life from what they can provide for me. I will miss them, but I know this was a decision that came from love. WAG has assured us both I will get a second family who will equally adore me and will be able to manage my care in the years to come.
I thank everyone so very much for their commitment to my well-being and for making all the hard choices that got me here. I feel very loved and ready for the next chapter in my life!"
