Loki is a sweet, sensitive boy who takes some time to warm up to people and new situations. He will open up and come for affection once he’s comfortable but will require patience and a quiet, adult home.
This gentle guy can easily get overwhelmed and will require a calm, dog experienced owner to accommodate his needs.
Loki has lived with other dogs previously but so far has shown he may be selective with who he wants for dog friends.
We are still getting to know him and he’s yet to be neutered. Loki will take a bit of time to settle in and we’ll continue to work with him to help build his confidence.
If you are interested in this handsome fellow, we require an application before meeting. If its a good match, we will set up an initial meet and greet appointment and go from there.
With dogs that are fearful or have behaviors that make it trickier to rehome, multiple meetings are necessary before adoption is possible, please consider this when applying.
***We’ve made changes to our adoption process. To adopt:
1. View Loki’s profile: spca.bc.ca
2. Submit an application: spca.bc.ca/adoption/application-forms/
3. If it’s a match, staff will contact you to set-up an appointment to come in for a visit or virtual meet & greet!
4. Live happily furever after
