Shadow arrived into care from Manitoba after being found with not one but two, badly broken legs.

He had three operations to fix this and is now ready to find his forever home. He still needs more rehab but VHS covers this!

From Shadow’s foster: I’m not sure of his age. I was told eight but I’m sure he is younger. Meet chatty Shadow. Loves to talk to you and has a real zest for life. Whether it is a lake, the ocean, or even a stinky pond, he will run in for a swim all on his own and enjoys paddling around in circles. Shadow is great with adults, kids, cats, and other dogs. He knows down, touch, wait, and come. Shadow did want to chase cars on arrival so attention to his body language around cars is still needed. A redirect to you with yummy treats works great.

He has some anxiety in vehicles that causes whining but if he has someone to soothe him with touch it helps. He is calm in the vehicle after his walks. He loves his walks, especially in the bush. He will pull on leash at the start but has gotten much better and wants to please you. His recall is great off leash. Shadow would do best in a home with another dog or owner who is home most of the time, at least for the first month. He is now okay to be left with my dog for a few hours after our walk and able to relax, but it did take three weeks.

If interested in meeting Shadow, please fill out an application!
