Hiker - Calgary, AB (URGENT!)

Hiker is a young male Pointer/Staffy Mix who is looking for a forever home to call his own through Furever After Rescue Society. He was found abandoned and tied to a pole in Louisiana without food, water, or shelter. He is a complete cuddle bug who has just charmed all of the shelter workers and he loves to sit on their laps with his head on their shoulders. Even though he wasn't given the best start to life, he's ready to start new and spend those cold winter nights cuddled up with his person by the fire and those warm summer nights on nice walks exploring the world. If you think you might be that person, please don't hesitate to contact me for any further information!

*Hiker is currently in a kill shelter in Louisiana and is not safe until we get him in Calgary. If you're interested in adopting or fostering, please contact me as soon as possible!*

I love all his little freckles. I hope he is out of that shelter by now and finds a forever home soon.

We haven't had any interest in Hiker, but he's still in the shelter in Louisiana. His eyes just make my heart melt and it's amazing how he's still so loving after all he's been through. Please, if anybody's interested, Hiker's still looking for a foster or furever home where he can learn that not everybody is as cruel as the people he's met.

Update! Hiker is no longer in danger of euthanasia and is safe in a Calgary foster home, but is still looking for a furever home! He's only about 30 lbs. and is great with the dogs and cats in his foster home. He just has such a sweet personality!

Oh he looks like a great little guy. It always makes me a little sad that I can't have more dogs in my current living situation. I hope he finds a warm and loving home soon!

Hi Soda!

I was just coming to update that Hiker was just adopted, but if you're looking to adopt please feel free to take a look at some other dogs currently looking for a wonderful home! Here's the Furever After Petfinder Page: click!

We rescue animals in urgent situations, and many of our animals come from the Gulf States. Due to the extreme pet overpopulation problem there, you can pretty much find any type of dog in shelter. So, if none of the dogs currently listed seem like they're that perfect pal, there's an option to be pre-approved and have a dog rescued just for you!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please don't hesitate to private message me, or you can use the contact information listed on Petfinder.

Thanks SO much!
