Freda is a 1 year old, 97lbs, Newfoundler. She was a transfer from The Alberta SPCA. Freda is extremely affectionate and gentle. She is looking for a home that will help improve her confidence. Freda responds well to praise, she was afraid to go down the stairs but with positive reinforcement from the Hinton SPCA staff she was able to conquer that fear. She is compatible with cats and other dogs. This is common for Newfoundlers as they tend to have a low prey drive. Freda also like children and would be a great family dog!

Jett and Coal were spotted in a ditch that backed onto a large field. They were extremely thin from a lack of food and having to fend for themselves in Alberta's climate. Luckily for these two handsome pups, K9 Recovery Service had their back and work hard gaining their trust enough to crate them and bring them to us. K9 Recovery documented their journey on Facebook and even had a vote on what to name them!
Since Jett and Coal's arrival they have been adjusting to their new lifestyle. They enjoy their warm beds and reliable meal times. They have a long way to go with their socialization but we are thankful that they will have a chance to live a life with all the comforts a dog deserves.
Olaf is a ten month old, male, shepherd cross.
Olaf came from a home with many other dogs on the property where he was the bottom of the pack.
He is currently unavailable for adoption as we are working on confidence building and socialization. Olaf he is working hard on these new skills and we hope to find his forever home soon!

This nifty girl is Nala. She is a recently spayed female,who is a 12 months old mixed breed.
This super friendly and energetic boy is Badger! He is about 4 years old, weights 59 pounds and came to us as a Hinton stray. He would make a great companion dog because he loves people. Badger is working on his leash manners so he can be a great hiking partner for some lucky human!

Dog: Lab Cross
Bosco is a neutered two year old male, (medium sized) lab cross. He is an energetic, sensitive guy who is doing well with his basic training. His leash manners are improving daily and he now knows "Sit."
What Bosco makes the staff laugh everyday with his antics. He loves squeaky toys and going for walks with our dog walkers. Bosco would do well in a home that can continue with his basic training and can commit to his regular exercise.
