These dogs already found a future retirement home and are looking forward to move in with their new family.
Ronnie is the son of a Pyrenean Mastif and an Alaskan Husky mother. As such, he combines the best of both worlds and is quite a big boy. He adores cuddles and isn't a great sleddog. In fact, he was rescued from Valimaa to save him being put down.
In the summer of 2019, we didn't think Ronnie had too long left. He had a couple of episodes in which he 'blew up' with bloat and has needed to have the air released (with a needle). This is often indicative of a tumour on an organ like the spleen even though we didn't find anything when we ultrasounded. If someone still wanted to take Ronnie at this point in his life, it could literally be as a hospice offer to give him as nice a last few months as possible. (In-between the bloat episodes he is happy and enjoying life so we do not believe he is ready to be put down quite yet). Obviously we are not expecting anyone to really offer to take a dog that might have only weeks or months to live but we have kept him here just in case.
This is Leon, almost hidden by the fireweed garden around his kennel 🌷
For many years in a row, he was our #1 top runner at Hetta Huskies.
Now that he is 12, some youngsters are on the podium.
He ran more than 21000km in his life. 🐾
He will retire together with Sanna who is quite similar to him. She's a star lead dog and also more on the shy side, but going together to a new home will make their transition to full house dogs much easier. Thank you for giving them this chance!
When Sanna was younger she was supposebly the best lead dog in the whole farm. She had two litters with us. Her first one was on October 2008 (with six boys and one girl) and her second litter which are the "S-Pups" in July 2018.
In 2011 she even became a grandmother to the "O-Pups".
We are very happy Felicia agreed to give Sanna and Leon a retirement home since they are both quite shy and often overlooked by clients or other potentail adoptees. She likes to be inside on a couch or a dog bed and being with another dog will make it easy for her to get used to her new family.
Pluto is one of Matsku's "Planet Pups" and a really sweet natured dog. Many guides and clients already fell in love with him because of his charming and calm personality. So finding him a forever home luckily wasn't hard.
We are sure he will be a great house and that he will enjoy his sofa life with loads of treats.
Yoda is part of the first litters born in Hetta. He is one of the largest of Madonna's and Sausage's pups. Which gave me the confidence to boss other dogs around a bit. He knows what he wants! Most of the times it's cuddles or treats and he's not afraid to use his charm to get it.
The son of one of my owner's friends is nicknamed Peanut, and I am named after him. I am one of Madonna's first litter of pups and the brother of Yoda, Malik and Tuuli, who are all adopted or adopted to be. I am quite clever since I manage to learn a lot (especially when bribed with food).
For years she and her sisters were the first dogs to greet clients in our farm. They all have a bubbly and loving personality but grumpy is probably the sweetest and more balanced out of them. She is the mother to our O-pup litter and auntie to our lovely T-pup litter. We are very happy she found a lovely retirement home!
