ICHIGO

Breed: Pittie Mix 
Gender: Male
Age: Approx. 6 months old
Size: Still growing! Medium/ Large? 

 

 

Energy Level: I'm a big puppy with lots of energy! Lots of play and lots of rest required!
House trained? Yes! 

Kids? Older kids likely

Cats? Dogs? I have lived with a cat before! We would need lots of supervision and separation at first. I like other dogs but I'm new around here and the staff are still getting to know me better! Watch this space. 

Medical Needs: I've had my first vaccines and have recently been neutered! I will need my vaccine boosters in the future! 

About Me:

Hi I'm Ichigo! I am a gorgeous 6 month old puppy who came from a very loving home, but WAG has been asked to find another pawfect match for me due to circumstances changing. 

I am very new at the shelter so the staff and volleys are still getting to know me better. My likes, dislikes and what my next adventure will look like in my new home. They do know that I am a sweet young boy with a lot of love to give. I have some great life skills already and would love to continue learning in my new home, but this is a big change for me so I'll need some patience whilst I settle in. I have lived with a cat before and am quick to make friends with new people but I may need some help adjusting and living in a new household. I am approximately 6 months old and have recently been to the vet for my first checkup and vaccines, as well as dewormer and flea prevention as standard at intake. I did really well and the vet said I was a lovely pup, I will need my booster soon and will also be booked in for my neuter in the near future.

I love cuddles, toys, my bed and am keen to try new treats and have fun with my friends. I walk well on leash but am getting used to the busyness of the shelter, my personality is starting to shine but I'm sure there is lots to learn about me. I am SO handsome and am charming my way into everyones hearts already. Will you find room in your heart and home for me too? Hopefully I won't be at WAG for long....

Are you ready to give me the WHOLE package - endless love, positive & considered socialisation experiences, training using positive reinforcement methods, tons of high quality nutrition, vet care as required, and all that I'll need as I grow into an adult dog?

Remember - adopting a teen puppy is a huge commitment and I am still learning lots about the world around me. For more information about preparing to raise a puppy and beyond, 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 an adolescent determined puppy like me, please consider filling out an adoption application today. I'm excited to find a loving family that will help me continue to 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:

- A family with patience who love sweet, bouncy young dogs who are still learning and growing each day

- Understanding that I have had HUGE changes in my life recently and to give me the time I need to settle in and relax after my adoption. Especially if I am to live with other dogs or younger humans. Lots of things are new to me and I may have some fears.

- Be proactive with my training, using a WAG approved trainer that will help me learn new skills and give me the best set up for success.

- Having a safe & secured yard would be a bonus. If not - not problem but being okay with using a long line to allow freedom whilst keeping me safe.

- Will take me for annual vet checkups and be proactive with my health.

 

My Story:

WAG was contacted when my guardians made the difficult decision to find a new home for me. They loved me very much and gave me a great start to life, but due to no fault of my own it was not possible for me to stay with them. I am settling into the shelter and my new routine and I hope I won't have to stay here for long before my next adventure awaits!

WAG is very full at the moment and receives new surrender calls each day, please consider adopting from your local shelter or applying to become a foster home to help our animals in need. If you are not in a position to adopt right now, please consider donating to WAG so that they can say 'yes' to animals like me who need some help still so early on in life.

JIMMY

Breed: Lab Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 12 years old 
Size: Large 

 

Critical Care graphic

Energy Level: I'm 12 years old and am a serious power napper and leisure stroller
House trained?
Yes! 
Kids?
Most likely, preferably older kids/ teens
Cats?
Unknown
Dogs?
I've been keeping to myself while I heal up but used to live with some other dogs outside. I would need to be introduced properly and given time to adjust via proper separation and supervision. 
Medical Needs:
I will need to have regular check-ups until I'm fully recovered and some further tests are pending. After that I should have routine vet visits to make sure I'm aging with grace!

About Me:

Meet Jimmy! 

New Critical Care animal Jimmy arrived at WAG on Valentine’s Day after being injured by a bull and in need of life saving surgery at Coast Mountain Vets. He came from a very loving home whose primary concern was ensuring the best care for him. They surrendered him into our care as they were worried that the environment he was living in was no longer safe for him in his senior years, even post recovery. They wanted him to have the safety of living indoors and having access to routine veterinary care. He is currently recovering from surgery at WAG and will be receiving regular check-ins with the team at Coast Mountain Vets. He is already making positive progress and winning over the hearts of the WAG Staff.

The surgery Jimmy required was to treat a large wound with a 14cm track into his deep muscle but luckily it did not extend into his thorax. He required further testing and a lot of medical care. This included a IDEXX General Panel, Radiographs, ECG Monitor, Hospitalization fees, lots of medications and anesthetic, 45 minutes of soft tissue surgery, fentanyl patches, IV fluids, cleaning the wound, stitching it together and inserting a Jackson-Pratt drain. It was important to ensure that the wound did not get infected and he was closely monitored, and we are pleased to update that he is healing well and should be getting his stitches removed next week!

This was possible due to our Critical Care Fund, which is largely funded by community donations. So your donations help us save animals like Jimmy. You can donate to Jimmy’s Critical Care Fund directly online at www.whistlerwag.com OR you can partake in our Month of Love Raffle and have a chance to win an amazing prize pack all while donating to WAG animals. You can read about how to enter here: https://whistlerwag.com/wags-month-of-love-2/

Thanks to the team at Coast Mountain for taking such amazing care of Jimmy ❤️

We are happy to see his waggy tail back in action when he sees his friends and are slowly getting to know this sweet, gentle boy at the shelter. So far he loves cuddles, treats and taking limited walks outside for pee breaks until he gets the all clear to go on longer more active adventures!

We will update his profile as we learn more about him and his needs, including further medical care and his suitable home environment moving forwards. He has been such a brave boy, if you are able to open your heart and home to foster him or even adopt him - please fill in an application form or reach out to the shelter today!

My Perfect Match:

-Is willing to take a couple of trips to get to know me before taking me home so I am comfortable with you, sometimes I get a little shy!

- A family with patience who love sweet, wise, slower old doggos

- Understanding that I have had HUGE changes in my life recently, alongside trauma and injury. I will need you to give me the time I need to settle in and relax after my adoption.

- Will take me for regular vet checkups and be proactive with my health. I am currently in recovery from a major surgery and we are not sure what the future may bring and may need some further testing.

My Story:

I recently found myself at WAG and on the search for a new loving home after an accident left me needing emergency surgery. My previous owners made the incredibly hard decision to have me move to WAG so I can get the care and attention I deserve. I'm a very easy going guy - all I want is a place to call my own with someone who can offer stability, love and patience for all of my days.

If you can't adopt right now you can still make a difference! Consider making a donation to WAG to help dogs like me and other furry friends in need. Your generosity will provide crucial support, care, and resources that ensure we receive the love and care we deserve and can be given a second chance.

Yes! 
Kids?
Possibly older kids/ teens
Cats?

About Me:

Hi I'm Jerry! 

I arrived at WAG at the end of 2023 after going through a lot in the past few months. I am around 9 years old and a tad overweight so that's something we will all work on together with lots of activity and exercise when I am ready. I love treats and tennis balls, that's the best way to become my friend. Once I know you I'll have the waggy-iest tail and be keen show off my goofy trots around the yard and lean on you waiting, no, demanding scratches and pets. I make the funniest excited squeals and noises when I see my bffs and get excited to have the ball thrown for me to promptly collect and bring back to do it all over again. I simply love going on car rides too, I elegantly haul myself straight into the back seats and lay down. Walkies are my fave part of the day, I previously lived a life of freedom in my life by the beach with my first guardian and soul mate, I was known as Ninja then and was such a brave boy when I lost my person in a tragic accident. So you'll understand that this new hotel is taking a bit of adjusting to. I'd say I'm most keen on the walks and cuddles the most though, I'm obsessed with snow and love playing in the great outdoors. I'm very strong and am not well versed it loose leash walking it seems. Having to sleep alone in my kennel overnight? I don't rate that so much but who can blame me? I hope I find a foster or ideally someone to adopt me very soon and I can check out of here asap. Luckily everyone here has made me feel really welcome and I'm being well taken care of whilst I decompress and rest up after another life upheaval.

I recently visited the kind folks at Eagleview Vet who gave me a full check over. I had a few issues with my health but the biggest was a hematoma in my ear which was causing me a lot of ongoing pain. They put me under sedation and promptly drained it, along with administering some long lasting ear drops to help with an infection so fingers crossed I'll be feeling better in no time! They also had concerns about my skin in general as I seem to be very itchy and uncomfortable. I'm on some medication to help whilst also trying a different food - I'll be monitored to see what works best for me. I'm overweight but I don't want to be on a diet, I'm keen to go on lots of walks, adventures and more to increase my activity levels and get into my best shape. I also had a manicure and the Vets checked inside my mouth - they said my teeth were absolutely "lovely" so that's good news. With these important issues now being treated, I expect to be feeling tip top physically soon and can focus on making even more new friends, not to mention finding someone to fall in love with me and bring me home forever!

I'd like a simple life with people who understand that I've been through a lot (which is an understatement) and will be happy to working with me on some training alongside a local WAG approved positive reinforcement trainer. I've got a training plan and am going to start my muzzle training whilst I'm at WAG in case it is ever needed. Muzzled dogs are good dogs too and it's alwats a useful thing to learn. I'd really like a home with kind, patient people who are ok to move at my pace and understand that I am the best boy who has been through a traumatic six months. Like everyone, I can get stressed by some things which is fair enough! I can be nervous of meeting new people, and new dogs but if we are introduced safely and positively I realise I can trust them and might even ask to play! I haven't had the chance to meet too many new dog friends yet at the shelter, but have been introduced to a couple of senior dogs at the shelter and it went really well.

I'm such a wise, older guy, I've seen more than my fair share of heartbreak and am SO deserving of a second chance at health and happiness. If you think we'd be a great match, please scroll down and fill out an application form today!

 

My Perfect Match:

-Is willing to take a couple of trips to get to know me before taking me home. I can sometimes be unsure of new people when I first meet them so we have been taking it slow.

- A family with patience who love big, chonky goofy, affectionate doggos.

- Understanding that I have had HUGE changes in my life recently, alongside trauma and illness. I will need you to give me the time I need to settle in and relax after my adoption.

- Be proactive with my training, using a local WAG approved trainer that will help me learn transition and give me the best set up for success. Including being pro-muzzle and keen to continue my muzzle training plan.

- Having a safe & secured yard would be a bonus for morning zoomies and ball play sessions! If not, being okay with using a long line to allow plenty of freedom but keep me safe as I settle in.

- Will take me for regular vet checkups and be proactive with my health. I had a few health concerns upon arrival and am getting the treatment I need now but I don't want to be in pain again.

 

My Story:

I recently found myself at WAG and on the search for a new loving home after some challenging events in my life. Tragically, I lost my beloved guardian in a traumatic accident last year and the months following have been hard for me and those who knew him too. After moving a couple of times and facing health challenges on top of that - I long for a place to call my own with someone who can offer stability, love and patience until the end of my days.

Can't adopt right now? You can still make a difference! Consider making a donation to WAG to help dogs like me and other furry friends in need. Your generosity will provide crucial support, care, and resources that ensure we receive the love and care we deserve and can be given a second chance.

BOURBON

Breed: Pittie Mix 
Gender: Male
Age: Approx. 5 months old
Size: Still growing! Medium? 

 

 

Critical Care graphic

Energy Level: I'm a puppy with lots of energy! Lots of play and lots of rest required!
House trained? Yes! 

Kids? Calm kids would be great! I am a bouncy puppy but I have done well when meeting children before. As long as they can understand when I want my own space and let me rest.  

Cats? Dogs? Cats unknown, potentially with separation and supervision! I like other dogs and have been in foster homes with other dogs before, as long as they like puppies and playing and my new family can manage us both. 

Medical Needs: I've had my DA2PP vaccines and am currently recovering from my recent neuter. Moving forward - yearly boosters and checkups! 

About Me:

Hi I'm Bourbon! I'm the last of my litter at WAG and I am STILL waiting for my forever family to come and find me and bring me home! At WAG I LOVE playing with other doggos and keeping the staff around here busy with my antics. Luckily I'm currently in a loving foster home where I am learning lots of great skills and spending time away from the shelter whilst I recover from my recent neuter. I have a doggo foster brother and we have lots of fun together whilst I wait.  I am a entertaining little guy, I'm looking for a family who love lively pups and can keep up with me and help me learn all the things I'll need to know! 

I'm an adorable young puppy currently looking for a caring and nurturing forever home where I can continue my journey to health and happiness for the rest of my years! Me, mom and my five siblings arrived at WAG over 12 weeks ago when we were in urgent need of medical care, nutritional help, warmth and a whole lotta TLC. Thanks to WAG's Critical Care program, it was possible for us to come to the shelter and get the attention we needed in order to thrive.

We arrived at about 3 months old, but as you can see if you scroll down to my older photos we were all quite underweight and have been recommended to eat several small meals each day to help us whilst letting our sore tummies adjust too. A regular feeding schedule with a high quality diet was prescribed with probiotics and pumpkin added to improve our gut health as our stools have been quite runny! We have been de-wormed to get rid of those nasty worms who gave us a pot-bellied appearance and will need continued treatment every two weeks for a while moving forward. We also arrived with a few cuts and various scabs on our skin, very long nails and were timid on arrival showing lots of signs of anxiety which was to be expected. But, we have been so brave and didn't even cry when the nice Vets poked us with needles to start our vaccination series and give us more protection for our health moving forward. Everyone is so proud of us!

We improved quickly and the other five puppies in my litter found homes and so did mom! Not much is known about the weeks of our lives up until this point, our exact age, or who our dad is come to think of it, so we are looking for individual homes with kind humans who understand that we may have fears about the world around us and to please be patient with us. We may do well in homes with another young resident dog who can help us gain confidence and keep us company, as long as they are up for having a new sibling of course and the pawrents are able to take on a special pup like me who may need some extra needs in terms of training and socialisation 🙂

Are you ready to give us the WHOLE package - endless love, positive & considered socialisation experiences, training using positive reinforcement methods, tons of 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:

-Is willing to take a trip or two to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. I am still adjusting to life around here and everything is new to me.

- A family with patience who love sweet, gentle young dogs who are keen to be your shadow.

- Understanding that I have had HUGE changes in my life recently and to give me the time I need to settle in and relax after my adoption. Especially if I am to live with other dogs or younger humans. I am new to car rides, being inside and going for leashed walks!

- Be proactive with my training, using a WAG approved trainer that will help me learn new skills and give me the best set up for success.

- Having a safe & secured yard would be a bonus. If not - not problem but being okay with using a long line to allow freedom whilst keeping me safe.

- Will take me for annual vet checkups and be proactive with my health.

 

My Story:

WAG was contacted when my first guardians were no longer able to take care of my mom Brandy, and her unexpected litter of pups. We are now safe and warm at WAG and getting the help we so urgently needed. We can't wait to find loving homes of our own in the near future!

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).

My Ideal Home:

-Is willing to take many trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. It takes several controlled sessions to make the slow introduction and convince me I don't have to be scared of you. 

-Understanding that it will take me much longer to become comfortable with new males, at this time, I trust women much faster.

-Is experienced with reactive dogs. It will be up to you to keep me and everyone else safe.

-Lives in a QUIET area – busy places are not for me! I need a direct and private access to the outdoors where I will not be running into strange humans or dogs.

-A safe, secure, and private yard is a huge bonus. If not though, lets get out and explore some secluded spots together! 

-Loves snuggly girls, watching movies, suntanning in the back yard, and SNACKS!

-Will continue with my training and take me on SAFE and SECLUDED walks/adventures only. I will not be able to walk down busy streets, go to dog parks, or other busy places.

-Patient with me on our first few meetings – I will be scared of you at first and you will need to make multiple trips to WAG before I understand that you are not a threat.

-Is pro-muzzle. I need to wear one in public to keep me and everyone else safe.

-Lives a quiet lifestyle with no visitors/social events at the house. I do not like visitors unless I have already built a relationship with them.

-Will love me forever no matter what!

 

About Me: 

The majority of my life has been at WAG, while they give me the best care they can, I'm hoping it won't be much longer until I find that dedicated family that wants to give me the life I deserve. 

The team at WAG keep my days full of fun and love, but I still know that I'm living in a shelter.  Once in a while some of the team can bring me for sleepovers, but no one has been able to provide me with a long term foster home, or the thing I wish for every night, a forever home.

The most exciting thing about moving into a home will be, no longer having to be bothered by the other animals. The cats keep to themselves and sometimes I might be interested in saying hi to one of the residents in the cattery (through the window in the door), their mews don't bother me too much. But boy oh boy, I can't wait to not hear the other dogs bark....especially when we have puppies, ugh, those things are annoying. Having my own home and my own bed where I'll get to cuddle and sleep in with my hooman on a Sunday with no barking dogs, that's the life I hope to find this year!

My friends at WAG like to get me out for big adventures in the car, particularly on days where being in town can be busy with folks out and about and other dogs (off leash dogs running up to me, rude!). We especially like to find good swimming holes! I love to swim and would gladly gulp up the whole body of water, whoops! Sometimes they call me a little piggie, but I believe that I am really a mermaid! But truthfully I love nothing more than finding a nice quiet spot on the water and swimming around with a long line that keeps me safe and allows me freedom. Then a good patch of some sunny moss to dry off and roll around for a decent amount of time, I love wriggling around.

I love getting a chance to go to new hikes, don't get me wrong, I like being able to sniff my favorite trees or play with leftover sticks on my regular routes, but boy do I like getting a chance to find new spots. In the wintertime I like to leap and slide through deep snow! I am a strong girl and can sometimes pull on the leash, things like proper gear will be super beneficial at making us a great team! Some stuff the WAG crew has on our walks are - muzzle, collar, harness, leash on each (2 leashes for safety is the way all WAG dogs are walked), weather appropriate foot wear (water shoes in the summer and spiked boots in the winter), treat pouch, poop bags, bear spray and LOTS of high value treats. Sometimes I wear a GPS tracker, sometimes they bring along a long line, they're always thinking about how else they can make walks and adventures more safe and of course more fun (hint, more treats and swim spots).

My forever family better be ready for a velcro dog!
I love to be around my friends, if you have a hand free, that could be scratching my ears or rubbing my belly. I love to trot around the house with you, supervising whatever task you are preforming, but I'm not intrusive, just curious. I'm very food motivated, but surprisingly polite in the kitchen, I like to monitor what I may be getting a sampling of later. But I have known to steal a piece of pizza or two! I don't mind putting in my share of help around the house, I'm very good at pointing out spots you've missed vacuuming (it's under me, cause I'm not moving out of my spot, you can vacuum around me). I can lick dishes clean.

I love to be clean, I enjoy bath time, especially when I get a towel dry with a soft cloth afterwards and a cozy blanket, or one of my sleepovers I had a fire going, I like those! Although I'm still a young gal, I know when I'm ready to call it a night, if you're a bit of a night owl, I'll let you do your thing and keep the bed warm. Also, best believe I'll be allowed on your bed, and the couch, and a 'dog' bed for me.

I LOVE girls.
Sweet girls who call me pretty and give me lots of praise and chicken.
Boys not so much. That doesn't mean I'll never like boys, but I need them to understand that it's going to take me a LOT LONGER to become comfortable with you. Sometimes boys forget that they're tone, body language and eye contact can be a little too intimidating for me.

LATEST - NOVEMBER 2023

I've had a great fall, with making friends with new staff members and going on my walks day to day. It's been quite busy around here but one of my best friends at WAG was able to take me home for a couple of nights for girl time and sleepovers, that was fab. My highlight was seeing the WAG calendar for 2024 and I'm looking as gorgeous as ever. I'm a great model but I've been featured a few times now, I'd love to see my face in the calendar next year along with a happy 'ADOPTED!' success story like all the other long termers around here. That's the goal! I have been carrying on with my parallel walks and training with the team, thanks @WhistlerDogNanny for your continued love and support! These sessions are set up to safely practice staying under threshold when around triggers at a pace that I am comfortable with whilst building on my bond with my humans.

If you would like to donate towards my personal Long Term Care Fund then please follow the link below. I want to say a massive THANKYOU to my fans and supporters for assisting with my care:

JULY 2023

I've been making the most of the hot days and enjoying spending time outside, sunbathing in the yard or going to my fave swimming holes for a dip. I had a dental surgery at PVH to remove a couple of teeth that were bothering me and am recovering well. I  had been having trouble with a lump on my face too, but no further treatment from that was needed in the end as it has healed really well! THANKS to the whole team for looking after me, I love my Vets. I've also been continuing to attend the Whistler Dog Nanny (Kayla's) parallel walk dog classes in Whistler and in Pemberton and am continuing to learns lots of work on myself with my best friends beside me. Thank you Kayla, Lindsay and my whole crew 🙂

This month I've been really lucky cos I got to have a few sleepovers at a staff members house, I LOVE being in a real home and having snuggles all night rather than being alone in my room. We watched some movies and had lots of snacks. Girls night is my favourite night!

JUNE 2023

Following my recent Vet Checkup, I have been having a rough time with alump on my face and had an eye infection too! Not the best start to my favourite season - Summer! A course of antibiotics and daily warm compresses are helping me feel better and heal up whilst I wait for my recheck next month. I also got a new sunhat to protect my sensitive skin from the sun whilst I'm outside in the yard, and a new muzzle for my adventures outside of the shelter. After trying lots of different brands and sizes, this one seems to be more comfortable and extra safe so it gets a thumbs up from me so far!

MAY 2023 

Sooooo I went for my yearly check up today. I had to get sedated so they could have a good look in my mouth. They also listened to my heart and poked me to take my blood. Turns out I will be coming back here to have a few broken teeth removed and to have the lump on my forehead sorted. Special thanks to Dr. White and the team at Pemberton Veterinary Hospital for always taking such good care of me and for being so patient with me. Shout out to Lins & Kendall for always holding my paw during these moments. I was told I was a very good patient.

 

My Story:

I had a very unstable start to my life. I was impounded by the RCMP when my previous caregivers were arrested. They never returned to pick me up and I was left at WAG. It is believed that I was abused and neglected in my previous home, hence my fearfulness and anxiety. I have never had a stable home life, or proper training prior to WAG, both of which I need to continue with in my next home. The team at WAG provide me with lots of love and support, but nothing compares to my own home one day where I can't wait to continue my journey.
