Dogs available for adoption
Why are sled dogs rehomed?
Read here the article I wrote on the different reasons why sled dogs are being retired.
Can sled dogs become pet dogs?
Directly to the FAQ section!
- Will they adapt to family life and being inside?
- How much exercise do they need?
- Won't they get too hot?
- Do they pee inside?
- How do they get on with other dogs or cats?
These are some of the most common questions I get from people interested in adopting a retired sled dog. Here's our answers:
All of the dogs considered to be suitable for adoption have spent time indoors and are either completely or nearly 100% house trained.
All are open and friendly towards people and have been extremely well socialised. In case of dogs requiring special care, it is always clearly mentioned in the dog description. These dogs would make amazing companion pets and/or sport buddies. For the oldies, we believe that they would have a better life if they could retire to a sofa.

Where do the dogs come from?
We help professional kennels and mushers, with green values, to rehome or retire their dogs. Their dogs are gold for these professionals. They are often like family members or at least very dear to their hearts. Yet, when some dogs don't make it to the team, or get too old to keep working, we offer an alternative solution for these dogs to have a new life as a company dog.
Some kennels we work with:
Bearhill Husky - Erä Susi - Metsien Kutsu - Nomadic Naali - Old Pine Husky Lodge
Dogs can be transported to you in Finland and Europe. The delay depends on the transportation available. There are regular dog transports throughout Europe. Transportation costs are borne by the new owners .
