Adopt a Sled Dog

Not every canine athlete wants to be a sled dog- and that's ok! We want our dogs to have loving and caring homes for their whole lives. Whether they be young dogs who don't want to be sled dogs or old athletes ready to retire to a warm bed, we have several dogs looking for their next adventure as "couch dogs"! They need lots of exercise but are great companions- very loyal, trainable, and friendly.

Houser

7 Year-Old Intact Male

Houser has a passion for running but he gets distracted very easily and also gets spooked during races. He's very friendly and would be a great fit for someone who wants and active dog to skijor or exercise with! He does not get along with all other males, but does do great with all females.

Lucky Charm

11 Year-Old Intact Female

Lucky Charm has been a champion racing dog for many years and is ready to retire to either a comfy couch or to a home that does some canicross/skijoring. She runs lead and gets along with everyone, human or canine. She does, however, like to chase cats. An absolute power house for her size, she would make the perfect companion for someone looking to give an old dog a great last couple of years.

Maple

2 Year-Old Intact Female

Maple is an absolute delight- a Middlebury student favorite as a puppy. The runt of her litter, she has barely made it to 40lbs full grown. She does love to pull with the team, but hates running on the dirt roads we train on and is too small to use for rides. She is so sweet and has a ton of energy, and is looking for her forever home with someone that can help her get out her zoomies (whether sled dog style or not!)

Terri

11 Year-Old Intact Female

Terri has been one of our main race dogs her whole life. She can run anywhere in the team, including lead, and is great at teaching young males their manners! She likes running more than anything- she is not a huge fan of getting pets but tolerates it if it means she gets to run. A very sweet girl who could be a great addition to either an active home or a small kennel looking for an old and experienced lead dog.

Goose

1 Year-Old Intact Male

Goose is a very excitable and cuddly boy. Although he does not want to run in a team, he does need a lot of exercise. His coat is incredibly soft- he gets this from his mom Kathleen! He is super sweet and looking for a home that is ready to get him outside but also snuggle him on the couch.

Dixie

6 Year-Old Intact Female

Dixie is very discerning. She is extremely smart and only works when she feels like it- so forget about running up hills! She is a little shy with new people but once she trusts you she is your shadow.

Frank

1 Year-Old Intact Male

Frank is such a good boy. Such a sweetie and so goofy, he can't wait to join a family that will let him get out his energy! He gets along with everyone and is really smart. On the bigger side, he is very strong but very soft like his brother Goose!

Cowboy

7 Year-Old Intact Male

Cowboy has been one of our main race dogs for many years. He sustained an injury last winter to one of his Achilles' tendons and will likely never be the athlete he once was. Nevertheless, he loves to run and is a great puller. He is very smart (runs lead) and super friendly with other dogs. He can be shy when he first meets someone, but opens up after a run or two and then tries to keep you with him when you go to walk away- so cute!
