Update - March 21: Crumble checking in from my Foster home; have you noticed how much I have grown (especially my ears!). Lots of people applying but the good people at Animatch ask that you READ my bio because they just don't have time to call all the people who are applying but can't meet my needs (see number 1 to 5 below). In the meantime, I am enjoying life and look forward to meeting the lucky family who will adopt me.
Crumble here and I am a Kuujjuarapik dog who arrived at the Animatch Centre seriously broken – cracked femur and shattered pelvis. I couldn’t stand, much less walk – it was touch and go for a while. No one was ready to give up on me. Thankfully, I’m now well enough to go to my first home. I will undergo surgery in a few months when I have grown more.
Before I go any further …. stop, wait, and read. Since there will be criteria (I use big words sometimes) that my new family must meet before they adopt me, you must keep on reading.
1) I require a family who lives in the area as I will have surgery in a few months and possibly some follow-up visits.
2) Children should be over 10 and dog savvy. I’d probably be wonderful with little tykes but we don’t want little kids tripping on me before or after my surgery.
3) If you have another dog, that’s okay but there can be no roughhousing before or after surgery. So, a, calm, mellow dog would be ideal.
4) If you are gone all day, forget it. Puppies need lots of socialization and frequent potty breaks throughout the day.
5) I would not be a candidate for condo or apartment living – I’m a big “talker” and my Husky howls would not be appreciated.
Animatch will only contact the people who meet these conditions and even then, they might not be able to get to contact everyone. Last time, they put a puppy on website, 250 people applied (a huge percentage not equipped to handle a puppy). If you haven’t already heard puppies during the pandemic are on the same “need to have” list as toilet paper. Everybody wants a dog!
Last but not least, the surgery to fix me will cost about $2,000. Animatch did not want to leave me behind or euthanize me at such a young age if I had a chance at a full life. They are all hoping that you – their peeps – will find it in your heart to make a donation.
If you have what it takes to adopt me and accept me as I am, then fill in the application form and let’s see what happens.
Please note that due the volume of applications, we are unable to respond to all applicants and ONLY those being considered will be contacted. We thank you for your understanding. The adoption application link is posted below and the adoption process is outlined on the website. Animatch asks that you read the Adoptee’s bio in its entirety before applying to ensure you meet the requirements for the dog.
