About Me:

Hi, my name is Hickory! I am around 6 weeks old and starting the search for my furever home!

I am just a baby who will need their 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 is 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'm not yet potty trained, and would 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 am just a baby after 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.

I can't wait to find my forever home.

 

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:

I was brought to WAG with my mom Macadamia and my nine siblings, when a concerned citizen found us wandering the streets of Hanceville, BC. We were only a week old, and so lucky to be out of the cold. We have been at WAG ever since, growing and learning with the help of the WAG team.
