Do you hear the news? I’m the new feature dog!
I’m not sure if I should be excited or sad by this..
I’m excited that I finally get the spot light, but I really thought my forever family would’ve scooped me up by now!
So here goes my whole speal all over again and hopefully my forever peeps are reading it this time!
My name is Kenora and I’m an approximately 3 year old female husky mix. I weigh a healthy 60ish pounds, have been vaccinated, microchipped and spayed.
Despite my weight I’m not overly tall (kneeish height) and have a stalkier build.
I love people oh so much! Maybe a little too much to be honest… I will always crave your attention and will nudge or paw you if I think you to get your attention. If ignored or told no I’ll leave it be. It could fairly easy for me to develop separation anxiety so please no touch or talk for the first two weeks! This time gives both of us our space to learn each other’s habits and routines without being overbearing. This coupled with two weeks of leash in and out of the house will give us a great start!

Little humans are a tough spot for me… I don’t have the patience for really little ones and do have a habit of getting pretty excited at times! Kids at least 13+ would be ideal for me.
Old enough to know to give me my space, but young enough to be fun!
I have met kitty cats and am currently staying with one. She still isn’t my best friend, but she tolerates me. Me, I really want to play but respect her space, and if I’m being pushy I’m easily corrected with a verbal no from the humans.
Other dogs.. Well they’re a whole other story.
I prefer calm, confident dogs and have a tendency to prefer males than females. I can get a bit growly/snappy with dogs I’m not enjoying. I can be easily corrected but need a confident owner who can read me to help correct these habits.
I can coexist with other dogs and have been in my foster home.. There’s 5 other dogs here and we all get along well and even play together!
I just need time to adjust and this is best done from in my crate. This is a fantastic place for me to observe and be able to smell the other dog without having to interact.
I absolutely adore my crate by the way! I’ll go in and out on my own and if you can’t find me, I’m likely in there! I will also put myself in there if I know I’ve done something I shouldn’t have!
I sometimes will try to be stubborn if you’re heading out and won’t want to go in my crate but can easily be led in.
I prefer my crate uncovered and am so good in there that I have a comfy bed!
In the house, when I’m not in the crate, I enjoy hanging out on the dog beds or the mat in the kitchen. I also love to drive my foster mom nuts by jumping up on the bed right after its made an messing up the covers 😂 I know I’m not suppose to be up there but it’s so fun!
I don’t enjoy toys all that much, but do enjoy something good to chew on. I have been trying to learn how to play fetch but I mostly just chase my foster brother.. He’s obsessed with the ball!
Other than rough housing with my foster siblings I usually get 1-2 walks a day about 30-45minutes + a hike on the weekend if we have time. I’m fairly well behaved on leash with some pulling but can be easily corrected, and do like to pull when I see something I want. I respond to either verbal correction, a quick tug on the leash to get my attention or the most common is my foster parents turning and walking the other way as soon as my shoulders are past their knee. This is helping me to learn that I need to follow human cues and I’m not in charge.
I really need this from my forever family. Not just the correction on walks, but confidence, rules and consistency. I’ve been let down by people in the past and want this next adoption to be my last.
I have the sweetest disposition with lots of love to give and endless hours of attentiveness to work together to make me the best dog I can be.
Need a copilot for a road trip? I’m your girl – I’ll ride shot gun or back seat no problem! I love car rides and will happily jump in!
Netflix and chill? I’ll gladly clean up the dropped chip or popcorn bits!
Going for a jog? Yes please!!

MANDATORY TRAINING

Don’t be afraid of these words! Here are a couple of reasons we require mandatory training for some of our awesome dogs:

 The dog doesn’t get along with ALL dogs.
That’s fine if you want to stay a hermit but we know the dog has potential to be ok with all dogs. Also, just like people, not all dogs like all dogs. You don’t like every person you meet but it’s expected we are cordial and that is the expectation of dogs as well.

 The dog is super nervous.
Many people have a tendency to allow their dog to stay in this state of mind their whole life but that is not healthy for the dog. We want a dog that trusts and is balanced as well as happy. Meeting with a professional trainer is exactly what these dogs need and you as the adopter needs to work hard at building that trust!

 The dog has zero manners.
Many of our returned dogs have come back to us this way and we want to decrease the chance that they will be returned again for the exact behaviour they showed before. All dogs require rules and boundaries. Love is not enough.

“I once owned a dog that was aggressive towards some dogs. I thought I was just going to have to avoid other dogs throughout his whole life and I became ok with that. Then I met an amazing trainer who has since helped me and we’ve walked and hiked with so many different dogs now! Throughout all the hard work I’ve met so many people and learned so much about myself.”

Don’t be afraid to adopt the dog that requires the mandatory training! It is an amazing opportunity to build a relationship with an awesome dog, meet new people and learn so much! For those of you with dogs that have issues, don’t avoid the issue. Get out and get training and work your butt off so your dog can be happy and so can you!

IMPORTANT

It is the recommendation of FTH that every newly adopted dog remain on leash, both inside and out, for a minimum of 14 days. As most of our dogs are outdoor dogs and strays, this will help prevent dogs running away as they are adjusting to their new home. At the same time it will help start building the bond between you and the dog. Thank you!
