Atlas (Adoption Pending)

BREED: GSH / Malamute
GENDER: Male
AGE: 3 years old in March 2020
SIZE/WEIGHT: 85 pounds
HISTORY: Was neglected and abused by previous owner. Atlas is flying in from Yellowknife, NWT on Dec. 6.
TEMPERAMENT: Very good 90% of the time, will grunt if someone he doesn’t trust touches him while he’s eating or if a man try to discipline him by touching him directly instead of using a leash. He was tied up and previously highly neglected and also abused. He will come around though, we have faith we can rehab him.
PERSONALITY: Goofy, craves affection and social interactions, rough playing, fetch, belly scratches, car ride, walks and play with my female GS.
HOW IS DOG WITH CATS, KIDS, OTHER ANIMALS: He is good with the SPCA’s toddlers outside the house, but since he gets triggered by food, I wouldn’t put him with young kids inside a house, he’s really good with female dogs, they love to play together! Don’t know about cats or other animals.
PETS NEEDS/BEHAVIOURAL INFO: Craving social interactions, but has trust issues, especially with men.
BEST MATCH:Couple or a women, not first-time dog owner, will need a strict training and house training, he’s living outside at the moment in NWT, the fosterer noted: I wish he could live inside a house as he spends his days looking at us through the windows and crying like a puppy to get in (She has toddlers).
FAVORITE THINGS: Tennis ball, being chased by our other dog.
SPECIAL NOTES: The dog is a product of a pure-bred dog being bought by an Alberta breeder who did not do her research on where the dog was going (Sachs Harbour) The owner was a cruel and heartless man.
