About Me:

Hi I'm Bear Cub! I am just over 14 weeks old and am ready for my furever home!

I am just a baby who will need my family to be proactive and understand that these next few weeks are the most important in my life. Early socialization is where I learn about the big wide human world that we have to live in. There are going to be so many new things I have yet to experience. I need a home that will look at my body language and understand when I may be fearful of something new. I'd love a family that will take me to basic puppy classes to get me off on the right start! A family that is patient and loving is what I would like the most. I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years.

Are you ready to give me the WHOLE package - endless love, positive & considered socialisation experiences, training using positive reinforcement methods, high quality nutrition, vet care as required, and all that puppies need as they grow into dogs?

Remember - adopting a puppy is a huge commitment and these next few weeks and months of their lives are critical in puppy development and socialisation! For more information about preparing to raise a puppy, we recommend the book "The Puppy Primer" by Patricia McConnell and have a few copies at WAG for purchase. If you're ready to offer a warm and supportive environment to a young and determined puppy like me, please consider filling out an adoption application today.
I'm excited to find a loving family that will help me grow into a happy and healthy dog! The first stage to adoption via WAG is always to fill in an application form first, and then we will be in touch about the next steps. Thank you!

My Perfect Match:

- Able to provide a calm, nurturing environment with people that will pay attention to my  body language to understand how I feel

- Is ready for the 10+ year commitment

- Loves everything puppy

- Will continue with basic training, I will need a post-adoption training appointment or Puppy classes with a WAG approved trainer

- Lots of patience!

- Will use food as a motivator

- Will love me forever no matter what, quirks and all!

- I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years.

My Story:

WAG was contacted when the guardians of my mom 'Turmeric' were no longer able to take care of her, and her soon to come litter of puppies. We were born in a calm, quiet foster home where our mom was able to relax and provide us a great start to life! Our foster pawrents quickly fell in love with Turmeric and chose to adopt her officially, luckily for her she will be able to concentrate on being a doggo herself and won't have any more litters of puppies to care for in her future.

Now its time for me and my 11 siblings to find loving homes of our own too!

If you can't adopt me at this time, please consider donating towards our care and others like us who need help the most. Litters of puppies are adorable, but tend to require a lot of resources and can have long stays at WAG whilst waiting for their loving homes. Shelters across the Province are currently overstretched, please be responsible by spaying and neutering your pets to do you part in preventing unexpected litters locally. 

NOTE: If you require assistance in spaying or neutering your own current pets, please contact WAG to find out more about our FANS program (financial assistance for neuters and spays).
