1 year old male

Fostered in Ottawa Ontario


Howdy! My name is Django! I’m a bit late to the party as my siblings and mom have already found their furever homes through this rescue earlier in the year! Now it’s my turn! I was born into the sled dog industry and my foster mom is told I spent some of my first year of life outside on a chain, but also some time indoors with the musher. This means I exhibit characteristics of a sled dog (I pull HARD and I walk in circles), but I am also fully house and crate trained. 


I am a very curious but nervous boy who is slowly adjusting to city life. Since entering foster care, I am learning the sights and sounds of living in a home. People are still pretty scary to me, but I am slowly opening up and realizing they are often just the source of treats and pets. I particularly love eating wet food on my licky mat and getting scritches between my ears and under my chin!  


I am not an overly energetic 1-year-old, and I surprise my foster mom everyday with how well behaved I am. I haven’t made a single mess in my crate, I am not destructive, make very little noise, and I even tolerate baths! I am also 100% dog friendly and have shown no aggressive tendencies towards people or dogs while in care. 


As I am still young and impressionable, I can likely adjust to living with pretty much anyone. Dog-savvy kids, even possibly cats with slow introductions! Though if I can make one request, it would be to find a home with an existing dog who can continue to help me gain confidence and see that humans really aren’t so scary after all. Oh! And possibly a home with parents who like a good arm day because, though I may be lanky, I can PULL! My foster mom has just started helping me learn how to walk on a leash (2 leashes actually because I am a big flight risk) and I am getting better at it every time, but the world outside is so big and when I startle, I try to run the other way! I am very smart though and I’m sure I will have the whole leash walking thing down in no time! 


Django will be neutered on May 7th. He is dewormed, and will be UTD on vaccines and microchipped before adoption. His adoption fee is $700.
