Wilda

A Female Husky-x presently Available For Adoption

UPDATE:  Along with new photos from Wilda's recent photo shoots comes a slow change in her confidence and demeanor.  This beautiful dog improves every day and will continue to do so even faster in her furever home.  Wilda can't wait to start her new life.

 

UPDATE:  Wilda’s puppy rearing days are over and she will be ready to go to her new home soon.  If you are looking for a typical tail-wagging, boisterous young dog … that would not be Wilda.  She is extremely shy; some might even describe her as feral.  She has never been anyone’s beloved pet.  Wilda was left to her own devices, roamed at will, and had never been touched or cuddled; she probably never had any positive experiences with humans.  Wilda is not just a “shy” dog who will take a few days to be comfortable around people, the person who adopts her must help her overcome her fear of people and learn that humans are a valuable resource and can provide for her needs.  At the beginning, it is quite possible that she will hide or freeze when approached; she may even be a flight risk given an opportunity.  For that reason, a securely fenced yard is recommended.  The first step in this relationship will be to gain her trust.  Obedience training using positive reinforcement will help.  Patience, empathy, and acceptance are needed.  Can Wilda, a completely unsocialized dog, ever become a companion?  Yes.  With an experienced human who is ready for an adventure, it is very possible.  So are you the one who will restore this dog’s faith in humans?  Please fill in the adoption form if you would like to adopt Wilda.

 

You will be contacted for an interview only if you meet all the criteria and could potentially be a suitable match.  Animatch does retain applications for two months and you might be contacted within that period for another dog or puppy.  There is no need to complete more than one application.  Please understand that every decision Animatch makes is with the dog’s best interest in mind.

 

What can be more adorable than a litter of puppies?  Happy times in a loving family are what await Wilda’s puppies.  Is Animatch excited about this impending delivery?  No.  For the simple reason that for every one of these puppies that goes to a family, the dog that could have been adopted by them from Animatch or any rescue/shelter is without a home.  For many of the dogs and puppies that have not made it out to a rescue this could translate to certain death.  Every year thousands of dogs find their way to Quebec rescues/shelters because there are more dogs than available homes.  If this makes you sad, you are not alone.  Wilda was a puppy not that long ago herself, now she will have puppies of her own to raise.  She arrived pregnant and just about ready to give birth. Thanks to the Nordic Paws Project none of her pups will experience starvation, harsh conditions, or a lonely life.  Best of all, Wilda will not have more puppies.

Wilda’s job for the next two months will be teaching her pups all they need to know to become well socialized, confident puppies.  When her job is done, she will go to a home where she will be to be loved and doted on by a responsible, committed guardian.  Although she is not ready to go any time soon, you are welcome to complete an Adoption Form.
