Meet Cruiser (rich)
Meet Cruiser! This charismatic little firecracker is 1 year old, and looks like a Husky/Cattle Dog mix. Cruiser is a total love bug and wants to be by your side 24/7, whether you’re lounging at home or exploring the great outdoors! He is looking for an active adventure buddy to keep him busy and help him grow into the very best boy he can be.
Cruiser came into our care with a broken leg after being hit by a car. He has made a stellar recovery, and is ready to put his freshly healed leg to work! He still has a lot of puppy energy, and will need a family that can help him with his leash manners and excitability. Cruiser loves car rides, belly rubs, and early morning walks, and is happiest laying down next to you with one of his favourite stuffies. He loves other dogs, but he does get a little overexcited meeting new friends, so if he is going to have a doggy sibling they will need to be comfortable with his puppy energy and able to teach him canine etiquette. He also has a bit of separation anxiety, and can get himself into mischief when he is left alone. He would be a great candidate for crate training, and would love to visit a dog-friendly workplace. He is always eager to please, and has the potential to be the perfect companion with enough love, dedication, and training.
If Cruiser sounds like the dog you’ve been searching for, submit an application on the BCSPCA website today!
