Snowball Flies South to Find His Furever Home


Today @lacking and myself said goodbye to the puppers we had been fostering since December 18,2019. The Iqaluit Humane Society, a no-kill shelter, takes rescued dogs from all over Nunavut and sends them south to find their furever homes. The house is much quieter, the floors are dry, and our own fur baby is enjoying being the center of attention again. Snowball is a great dog and I know he will end up finding a great home; it still hurt immensely to see him go.

Snowball was found outside one of the local stores being thrown around by some troubled kids. I walked out of the store and saw the fluff ball in my husband's arms and I just started shaking my head and saying no. I knew that if we took him home that little fluff ball would become my baby and giving him up would be extremely difficult. I felt guilty so we took him home; he huddled and shivered against me as we rode home on our skidoo. Snowball went right into to tub when we got home because he stunk of seal and who knows what else. He and Millie, our fur baby, hit it off pretty good.

Over the next few weeks we worked with Snowball to have some basic training under his collar. We had to work on his food aggression first as that is a dangerous trait to have. Kennel training, potty training and some basic commands are what we got through during his time with us.

I knew from the beginning that he wasn't going to be mine forever but that didn't stop me from falling in love with that yippy little mongrel. I hope he finds a great home in the south where someone will love and appreciate him.

That is such a sweeet-looking pup! He is a cutie, and it is heartwarming that you rescued him, took him in, and cared enough to find him a forever home! Wonderful story! Thanks for sharing! 💛

I hope Snowball gets a great new home! I'm sure it was hard to say goodbye, he's SO cute! But I'm glad you were able to take care of him and get him the opportunity to find a furever home.

Hi dear @arcticgypsy what a sweet gesture to be a tempora parent and home to those sweet eyes. And how sweet of your first furry to be so parently! It’s great to see that there is a humane society there aswell this. Is something we only see on tv love it and great to see you blog, have a great weekend and say hi to your husband he is a full member and terminaler now


Snowball did have the most beautiful eyes with those white eyelashes. I'm pretty sure that every province and territory in Canada has some form of humane society for the welfare of animals. And I will say hi to him.
