“Hi there! My name is Pebbles, and I’m a lively and affectionate 2-year-old dog looking for my forever home!
One thing that gets me really excited is when I see my leash and harness. It’s a sign that we’re going for a walk, and I absolutely love exploring the world outside! Sometimes, in the evenings around 6-8pm, I get these bursts of energy and zoom around randomly. It’s quite entertaining, I must say!
Although I can settle down, I usually need a high-value reward or some playtime to help me unwind. I enjoy being let outside to run it all out or engaging in a good 15-20 minutes of Tug of War. It really helps me release all that energy!
I absolutely love cuddles, and don’t be surprised if I try to snuggle up with you! I weigh around 90lbs, so you’ll definitely feel all of me when I sleep on you. I may not be a fan of the kennel, but I’m getting better with it. I do find it useful to hide my toys inside, I’m still learning how to share, you see. I’ve been told that I’m a quick learner, especially in low distraction environments.
To keep me happy and healthy, I’ll need a family that can take me for frequent walks or engage in high-energy play with me on a near-daily basis. I think I’d thrive best in a house with another high-energy dog who enjoys similar types of play.
If you think you can provide me with the love, exercise, and playtime I need, then I’d be thrilled to become a part of your family!”
Love – Pebbles
Pebbles already has some travel points! Pebbles flew down from a shelter partner in Inuvik after having spent too long unclaimed as a stray. This young fellow is in excellent condition and is ready for adoption. Since being in hart’s care Pebbles has received DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is neutered and microchipped.
Basic Skills – Currently knows Sit, Wait, Down, Focus, working on Tuck (placing himself between our legs), on property Recall, Paw, Working on Drop it/Leave it/Take It.
Pebbles is still learning his leash skills, but is improving every day, according to his foster home.
Pebbles will take his high valued items to his kennel and will growl and protect what he has. His foster home is working with him and finding ways to mitigate this behaviour.
His new family will need to have the time and patience to continue with all the wonderful training and skills Pebbles is learning in his current foster home, as he is a smart boy and making great progress.
