A Female Nordic mix presently Adopted

I’ve always dreamed of being part of a family and Animatch agrees that now is my time.   I’ve made the long journey from Whapmagoostui except I had to leave so many behind.  Special thanks to the Northern Paws Project who persist in their goal of making a difference one dog at a time.  Despite a harsh beginning, I will never feel alone again.  The volunteers say that I have a calm and wise aura that will make a family happy to share their life with me.  I know and respect my heritage as a Northern Dog but my dream is that someday measures can be put in place to solve the overpopulation of dogs once and for all.  Transportation is a huge issue in my community and Veterinary care is non-existent so puppies continue to be born without anyone to care for them.  Many die and rarely do you see any senior dogs; winter is the toughest time for us because there is not enough food or proper shelter.  In my case, just before leaving to come to Animatch I was attacked by a group of dogs; I was in heat so that may have set things off.  Now that I am safe at Animatch, I have been sterilized and my dog bites have been taken care of and are healing.  I have demodex (a skin condition) and it is presently being treated with medication; demodex is not contagious to humans, dogs or cats.  Being a Northern girl means I absolutely adore open air activities and would best suit an energetic, outdoorsy family.  Don’t forget I require a good bit of attention to make up for lost time so I would not be happy spending the day on my own.  Rumour has it that I am quite the smarty-pants; I really aim to please.  I know that I would be an A-Student in obedience training so let’s make that happen. With your guidance and commitment, I am confident that I can be the dog of your dreams.  Won’t you feel cool having a “Northern Star” at the end of your leash.  Let’s make both our dreams come true!  Please fill in the Adoption Form if you would like to adopt me.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
