Ice the dog is looking for a new home in the Montréal area

Looking for a playful and affectionate companion who needs a little extra attention? Adopt Ice! He is an adorable 2.5-year-old dog, is looking for a loving and present family who can meet his need to be surrounded. With his playful personality and love of cuddling, Ice will bring positive energy to your home.

Although he is tolerant of other dogs and has a playful instinct towards cats, a gradual introduction is recommended to ensure harmonious cohabitation. Likewise, because of his past, it is best for Ice to be the only pet in a household without children.

Ice is a very active companion, requiring around 3 hours of exercise per day. Regular walks in calm environments will be essential for his mental and physical balance. In addition, Ice will benefit from mental stimulation in the form of interactive games to channel his boundless energy.

Although he may vocalize out of impatience or to express his desire to play, Ice is able to relax in the house with you. Ice has trouble being alone. A gradual introduction to solitude is therefore recommended to ensure well-being. Gradual, short separations, with the use of treats or toys to distract him, can help him get used to being alone.

However, Ice presents behavioural challenges, particularly regarding resource guarding and cleanliness. It will be essential for his new family to understand his dog language and respect his limits. Specific protocols must be followed to manage these behaviours, and consultation with a veterinarian or canine behaviourist may be beneficial.

If you are willing to give Ice a loving home and work with him to overcome his challenges, he will shower you with joy and affection. Don’t wait any longer, Ice is looking forward to finding his forever family!
