All 17 husky puppies surrendered to the BC SPCA just before Christmas have now been adopted.

The weakest and smallest of the pups, which were surrendered from a property in the Interior, was given the name Uki, which means “survivor” in Inukitut.

The pup, who has lived up to his name, should make a full recovery, according to a BC SPCA media release.

Uki’s new family were overjoyed to hear their adoption application had been approved. The puppy was a surprise to the eldest son who had been asking for a puppy for years.

The adoption moment was caught on camera at the SPCA branch in Penticton.

More than 1,200 applications for adoption were received by the BC SPCA for the 17 husky pups, who were given new homes in the Okanagan, Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Northern B.C. and Banff, Alberta.
