Snowdrop, Yuki, Lumi, Eira and Neve are young Akita x Husky snow dog pups, who were part of an unexpected litter. They have been taken in by the Helping Yorkshire Poundies charity in Rotherham, which is hoping to find them forever homes.

The charity said: “They're typical pups, full of mischief! A little on the lean side, they have fantastic appetites and are growing and thriving every day!

“All pups are in foster now but are ready to find their forever families. They're looking for 5* forever homes.”

Prospective adopters looking for a new member of their pack should be Husky/ Akita experienced.

In a Facebook post today, Helping Yorkshire Poundies said: “After being let down numerous times, we have reopened applications for the snow babies.

“They are looking for breed savvy, committed homes, who genuinely want to adopt and have the time and patience to welcome a new puppy into their home. You can find the application form on the website.

“We have four girls and one boy - they can be rehomed with other neutered dogs of the opposite sex.

“Please do not apply unless you are genuinely ready, willing and able to adopt. Do not apply on a whim.

“The number of applicants who reply, or pull out at various stages of the adoption process is unbelievable right now. This is wasting hours of our time every day – hours we don’t have to waste – meaning dogs are waiting days and weeks longer, clogging up kennels and foster homes, and ultimately costing dogs’ lives.

“Genuine applications are very welcome. Please help us find these special pups their perfect forever homes.”

Any donations towards the care of the pups while they are waiting to be re-home would be hugely appreciated by the charity caring for the litter – with lots of hungry little mouths to feed, worm, flea, vaccinate and chip.
