KABOOM!
Siberian Husky
Male (D)
Born 3 November 2020

Picture this... early evening, you've changed into your comfy clothes, sitting down on the couch for a nice glass of wine and a bit of goggleboxing. Meanwhile, terror is lurking in the background. Stealthily climbing up the side of the couch, creeping forward until he... Sits. On. You. With no apologies forthcoming, he mentally and physically prepares himself for his next attempt of The Couch Olympics - on, off, over, under if he could. It's all good.

Animated, agile, loving and slightly cray-cray he is Kaboom! by name, Kaboom! by nature. One minute it's all about the cuddles the next minute - off he goes! Approaching life with sociability top of mind, one minute may see him bathing a human's face with his love you patented kisses, the next he's off playing a good game of bitey face with his four-legged brethren.

For one so young who meets life head on in all instances (something about bulls and china shops springs to mind), he is very good at picking up social cues from other dogs, understanding their boundaries very quickly. If a dog shows signs of fear, he'll leave them be. If a dog shows signs of aggression, he'll steer clear. If a dog yells "Game On"... well, guess who'll be in the thick of things?

You'll always know how to read his needs and wants for his vocabulary is quite established and his eyes are his mood-reflectors. A loud, demanding bark equates to food-o-clock. General barking means it's play time. Back chattering comes with dual meaning - good morning! or Pet. Me. Now. When he grumbles you know it's time to settle down for a good cuddle session.

Aside from the very odd I'm-too-excited-to-contain-myself puppy piddle (usually when receiving visitors or you've just come home) for all intents and purposes he is housetrained. Your furniture and walls may remain safe from his puppy teething but mayhemic destruction abounds as he takes great delight in strewing his toys across every available surface.

We now come to the one particular thing that rocks his world and has him living up to his name (what, you honestly thought we were there yet?). No doubt you've heard the term "water baby" - allow Kaboom! to take things to the next stratosphere. When water is involved this is where he shines and goes all crazily cross-eyed with delirium. We suggest a self-watering driat home to prevent dehydration and if his yard does not come with it's own body of water then regular excursions to the beach or lake are key requirements to a content bear. And a must in our eyes.

Now, who's the lucky duck prepared and willing to welcome some Boom! into their life?

DRIFT
Siberian Husky
Male (D)
Born 26 November 2016

Located : Seven Hills, NSW

Hyperactive? Check. Sweet? Check. Does my mouth move as fast as my feet? Err... my feet are faster but anyhoo.... But I do agree I can be very childish in nature with a short attention span. Unless we're talking about my total focus when it comes to my favourite activity in the world - running.

My over-exhuberance at such times may prove too much on those days where it's more hail than shine, but you can bet your last dollar that you'll be "encouraged" to put on them running shoes as we run faster than the speed of light through the neighbourhood streets. I suggest investing in a raincoat.

It's safe to say I would best suit a keen runner, active hiker or sled home - I average a 10k'er a day and still have the hide to look at Dad as if to say "that all ya got?". He's trying to get the better of me and has started hooking me up to a dryland sledding cart. Don't worry, I'll meet his challenge... then raise him some.

Now comes time for a confession. Prior to coming into rescue care I was, shall we say, rather notorious for digging under fences or breaking through ones in poor repair. Now that my exercise requirements are being met I feel no need to make any self-bids to freedom. Funny how that works.

When it comes to other canine friends I have a set regime you must follow otherwise things quickly head South. Introductions must start with parallel walks, where I quickly accept them as "pack". Then we're good as gold - just ask my friends the labrador, the cavoodle and the GSD.

You wouldn't want to try that with anything small and furry like cats or pocket pets. Although somewhat ambivalent towards birds, the above plus livestock result in thought bubbles about how best to serve up my din-dins.

I may come across as overly confident within myself but I do shy away from loud noises like storms, fireworks, noisy traffic and really busy environments. 'Rental Brett has been working with me on these and I'm getting much more comfy as each day passes.

Meet my exercise needs with the understanding that, like all good bears, I do enjoy quality down time. By day I'm AOK lounging by the front window or door watching the world go by, perhaps sharing the couch where bum scratches and belly rubs factor high. Or hear me squeak around the home with my favourite toy - the plastic pig - between my pearly whites.

Come night you'll be pleased to know that the bed is all yours. I have my own.
If your life is all about activity and you need a sidekick, shouldn't we have a wee chat to see if we are what each other needs?

Male 3Yrs
D.O.B - 11 May 2018

Blaze will require:

- A home with no children and no cats or other small animals
- A home with a female dog of similar size and energy levels
- Daily walks, always on lead
- Ongoing obedience training
- A reasonable sized yard with grass areas for digging and an undercover area for shelter
- Fences and gates will need to be at least 6 foot high, secure and dig-proof
- Experience with a stubborn arctic breed dog is absolutely essential

Blaze is one lucky boy! Surrendered to the pound, he was due to be put down the following day but fortunately we managed to secure him a foster home just in time.

We have since gotten to know this cheeky young fella and and his funny little habits. Blaze was very wary of anyone touching him around his neck or putting anything on over his head, and he even struggled walking with a collar and leash. His foster carer has been working daily on getting him comfortable with this and he has improved massively. He can still get a bit scared about it sometimes, but this is happening less and less.

Blaze loves the company of other dogs similar to him that enjoy a bit of rough and tumble play. He’s still getting to understand and recognise dog body-language, but he will definitely thrive in a home with a playmate. Blaze has had success in his previous environment being bossy with people when he doesn’t want to do something, so he has been working hard on learning boundaries and is responding well to consistent, clear rules. For this reason, Blaze needs a home experienced with Arctic breeds and their stubbornness that knows how to continue working with him to set him up for success.

His new home must have a reasonable sized, secure yard, allow him access inside when people are not home, have no children, cats or other small pets, and have a commitment to ongoing training.

Blaze is not suited to rural properties, apartment living or properties with small outdoor spaces. He is not available for interstate adoption.

NALA
Female
D.O.B. May 2017

Nala has the following requirements:

* Husky or arctic breed experience essential - Nala will be a challenge for even an experienced owner
very secure, 6 foot high and dig proof fencing
* reasonable sized yard with natural grass areas and adequate shelter
* No other dogs, no cats or other animals
* Ongoing training and strict feeding routines
* Any children to be well into their teen years
* A home that can tolerate her loud vocalisation

Please do not apply unless you meet all of Nala's requirements

This poor girl was starved, emaciated and had been passed around a number of homes that were not right for her. As a result, she was a hot mess, extremely anxious and obsessive, struggled with too much stimulation and wailed like a banshee when stressed. Due to her malnutrition and poor treatment, she was constantly hunting for food or a way to escape, and had difficulty settling down.

Thanks to the patience, understanding and hard work of her wonderful foster carers, Nala has now put on weight and can be friendly and affectionate, and is also very curious and loves exploring. She can still be anxious and wary of strangers, but she has improved massively on what we found when we first met her.

Nala will need a very patient and understanding new owner who has had experience with challenging dogs so they can work on building her confidence. She will also need a super secure yard with 6 foot high, dig proof fencing, no other pets and a willingness to follow a strict training and feeding program.

Arctic breed experience is essential, with preference given to homes that have previously owned Huskies.

MYA
Female
5 Years

Mya will require:

- An all-female household - Mya can be a bit nervous around men
- Any children must be calm and gentle with dogs
- No cats, pocket pets or other animals, but she may be okay with a calm, male dog of similar size
- Someone experienced with anxious dogs who can work to build her confidence
- Daily walks, always on lead
- A reasonably large yard with grass areas for digging and an undercover area for shelter
- Secure 6 foot high fences and gates
- Homes with arctic breed experience, preferably with nurturing a nervous dog, will be given priority
- Please do not apply unless you meet all Mya's requirements

Mya, Mya, Pants on Fire is this little Husky girl's full name! Because when she gets scared, that’s how she runs!

This incredible dog needs a very special home. Mya’s life before she came into care with ARV was very isolated and she finds new people very intimidating and her default behaviour is to run and hide. She has made huge improvements in her confidence over the past 6 months and is now a happy, affectionate, cheeky girl that loves her walks, car rides and a good game of bitey face with a fellow canine companion.

As much as Mya has blossomed, she will never be the bravest of souls and is terrified of men. She currently lives in a house with a male, and is happy enough, but is much more relaxed and confident without a masculine presence. For that reason, we are looking for a calm, stable home that does not have a permanent male resident.

Mya is very comfortable around kids (but is cheeky and like to steal their snacks!) and needs another confident adult dog in the household to help her be brave. Her new family must not care that she does burnouts when scared and will scratch any floorboards in the process. She loves her crate and feels safe and secure there, and it will need to come with her. Mya will still occasionally have a toilet accident inside, as she has only recently become an inside dog after 4 years of living outdoors in a run.

Mya will need a gradual introduction to any new people and her new home over a number of meet and greets. She is looking for someone who understands her limitations, but will also encourage and guide her forward.

For all her issues, Mya is a very easy dog to live with. She learns routine very quickly, spends most of her day sleeping, has the softest fur imaginable and her whole body wiggles when she’s happy.

If you have the patience and commitment to take on this beautiful little redhead, please apply now!

ANGEL
Female
5 yrs

Angel will require:

- Arctic breed ownership experience is essential, preferably with Huskies
- Any children to be in their teens
- No cats, pocket pets or other animals
- A home as an only dog
- Daily walks, always on lead and under firm control
- Ongoing training
- A reasonably large yard with grass areas for digging and an undercover area for shelter
- Fences and gates will need to be at least 6 foot high, secure and dig-proof

** Please do not apply unless you meet all Angel's requirements **

Don’t we all need an Angel in our lives?

This wonderful Husky girl is an absolute breeze to live with. She likes to hang out with her people but is also happy to chill by herself.

Angel loves her bed and her crate and chasing a ball (although no one said anything about returning it), favourite position - side on sleeping! She does have a little bit of devil inside her to make things interesting though - she pulls like a beastie on lead and can be reactive towards other dogs, so will need to be the only dog in the home. She has been working hard on ignoring them and improving her lead manners, and is looking for a new family to help continue her training in that department. She gets focused on temptation easily so needs a handler that can work within her thresholds.

Her ideal home needs to have a secure yard with at least 6 foot high, dig-proof fencing and no other animals, and any children will need to be secondary school aged. Angel loves people but as a typical Husky has not a shred of loyalty and gives it away to anyone.

After being passed around multiple times in the past year, Angel is looking for her permanent home to settle down in. Could it be yours?

Angel is not available for interstate adoption and is not suitable for rural properties, apartment living or homes with a small yard. Arctic breed experience is required.

KODA
Siberian Husky
Male 4 years

Koda needs:
• a home where someone is home most of the time
• preferably an only-dog home, but may do well with a confident, but laid back female.
• no cats or other pets
• children to be at least in their teens
• a reasonably large yard with natural grass areas and shelter
• secure 6 foot fencing and gates
• ongoing obedience training
• Husky or arctic breed experience preferred

Koda is just the sweetest boy you ever will meet!
Sometimes he is aloof and serious, or happy to chill at your feet all day rather than zoomies and mischief that the breed is known for. However, give him a ball to play with (especially one that squeaks) and you get a whole different dog!
He loves walks and trips to the beach and he walks like a dream, requiring very little lead pressure if he starts to pull. He loves his humans! He trusts and bonds quickly, losing his initial shyness within hours. He will follow you everywhere and likes to be close to you at all times, but he also likes his personal space and doesn’t like to be mollycoddled.
Koda suffers mild separation anxiety but can be left alone during the day if he is allowed somewhere he can watch for your return, ideally with access inside the home. With this in mind, he would suit a family where someone is home more often than not so that he can relax knowing you are home safe. He can be nervous in the dark due to having Polar (Star) cataracts (see medical notes below), so would need to be an inside dog at night.
He likes a routine and boundaries with regular positive reinforcement. Once he is familiar with his routine, his anxiety drops so he needs a calm, consistent handler who can read when he is getting overwhelmed and intervene before it escalates.

Medical Needs:
Koda has been diagnosed as having Posterior Polar Cataracts in both eyes. This is not affecting his vision at the moment and no special treatment is required. The prognosis for Koda is good, however there is the possibility that he may suffer some vision impairment in the future so this condition will need to be monitored. The good news is that polar cataracts rarely cause blindness, progression is usually slow and should there be any vision loss, dogs don't rely nearly as much on their eyesight as their sense of smell and hearing and generally adapt very well.
