Urgent - in
shelter Vancouver, WA
bonded pair - Braun
need a home FAST!
These two were seized by Animal Control because they allegedly killed a poodle but
they have not shown any aggression in the shelter nor have they shown any interest in
the other dogs. It's possible they got loose and the pack instinct took over but it is
commonly known that northern breeds are not very good with small dogs. All efforts
must be made to keep your animals in safe, escape-proof enclosures. Zeva, a
spayed female, is 2 years old, and Braun is a 4-year-old neutered male. They are
nervous in the shelter but once they get to know you
seem quite friendly. They will need a home where someone has lots of
time to spend with them giving them training and boundaries and of course lots of
hiking exercise. A place in the Sierra would be great so they can play in the snow!
Animal Control will only permit them to be released to a certified Rescue. They will
not be adopted to the public. Here is a link to the photoshoot at the shelter.

Atascadero, CA -
Elegant 4-year-old Tamaskan, Lupine
spayed, about 60 lbs and up to date on vaccinations. She is good with larger
dogs, especially males. No small dogs or cats please. She has had
extensive professional training over the years, walks well on leash, good recall off
leash once she bonds with you), housetrained and crate trained (for short periods of
time) while you are away as she does have some separation anxiety. She is not an
escape artist so 6' fencing should be fine for Lupine. She has had training in a
boarding kennel for 6 months, submissive with humans and kids, but food protective
with other dogs. Lupine loves to ride in the car and is in great health. She was
bought from a breeder as a Tamaskan. Owner's
lives have changed and much travel is involved now, so they want
Lupine to have a good life with people that can give her lots of love and attention.
Owner is heartbroken to give her up but knows she will be hapy in a home with people
who are active daily outdoors and are around a lot so she does not have to spend too
much time in a kennel waiting for them to come home. If you are interested in this
sweet girl, please contact Pamela Jo at PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net
- Beautiful Vega
is only 3 years old and
losing her home. Her owner has health problems and cannot give Vega the life she
deserves. This often happens with northern breeds since
they do need a lot of exercise and attention. Vega is about 80 lbs,
up to date on vaccinations and is a very sweet girl. She has been submissive with
other dogs but now that she is maturing she would be best with a nice
large friendly male to play with. She has not been around small dogs and will not be
placed with little dogs or cats. Vega walks nicely on leash once the excitement
abates, but could use some more leash training as she is still a bit uncertain of
leashes. She is very well behaved indoors when she has human company, owner kennels
her when gone (but not for more than 2-3 hours). Vega has been kept in enclosure with
7' fencing, so that is what we recommend for her. She has no food aggression and knows
some commands, but Vega is a bit fearful/anxious of new situations. She loves women
but takes a little longer to warm up to men. She is not aggressive or dominant,
just shy. She is in good health and has never been abused. Owner loves
her very much and is heartbroken to give her up. Vega rides in the car but does have a
little anxiety. She has been given a high-quality diet of grain-free kibble
supplemented with real meat and veggies. Vega is super sweet with people and loves
hanging out with you in the house - she can be a couch potato after she gets a good
hike outdoors. She gives kisses and loves getting pets - very affectionate girl! Vega
loves being with her other dog friends and is anxious when she is away from them, so
we would like to place her in a home with other nice male canine companions. She
is presently living with another female and they have to be separated which is
very stressful for everyone. Please help us find a great home for beautiful Vega.

Incline Village, NV – Lake Tahoe
… Sienna needs a permanent home ASAP!
Sienna is a very pretty 10 y/o French Spaniel mix (not a
wolfdog!), about 62lbs, spayed, vaccinated and she is in good health. Sienna likes to
chase squirrels, birds, cats, little dogs etc. and is quite limber for her
age. Sienna is very peaceful and loving, a real love bug with humans. She is taking
training classes and learning to be more comfortable around new dogs in a controlled
setting. She is doing great and now knows Sit, Stay, Wait, Leave It, Come, Down - all the
basics. Sienna is house trained and would be fine as an only dog or with a nice
large or medium canine companion as she loves her male
Malamute and they play very gently together. Sienna loves walks in
the forest, has great recall when off leash, and heels nicely on leash. She enjoys car
rides and just to be with you. No little dogs or cats please. Please help sweet Sienna
find a forever home. Foster Mom needs surgery and can't get it until Sienna finds
a home. We don’t want Sienna to go to a shelter. Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is happy
to pay for continued dog Training classes with Guy Yaeman if adopted in the
Reno/Tahoe/Carson area. Contact Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 or email
meet Sienna and take a walk with us!
See what a sweetheart she
Apache Junction, Arizona (outside Phoenix)
- This beautiful
White Shepherd mix is named Phoenix
and he is about 6
years old. He is 95 lbs, neutered and microchipped. This pup was
rescued from a shelter but now his owner is soon moving to a small apartment
in Las Vegas (very hot!) and she wants a better life for Phoenix. She loves
her boy and is waiting for Phoenix to find the right home before she
moves. Phoenix needs a nice yard, lots of exercise and hikes in the woods. He
is good around other large dogs at the dog park and will be submissive if the
other dog is dominant. He lives with a smaller 10 y/o Shepherd female.
Phoenix is ok with the small dogs at the dog park but we usually do not not
adopt large dogs with little dogs, cats or small children. He walks pretty
well on leash, and does very well on off-leash hikes in the woods and stays
close. He just needs to be leashed up before
getting to the
trailhead as he likes to play Come-Catch-Me. Phoenix is housetrained
and well behaved while someone is around, but does
have some separation anxiety if left home alone all day. He does
much better when left out in the yard, and always better with another dog for
Phoenix will let you know when he has to go out for potty, he sleeps in owner's
bedroom, and likes to sleep outside when weather is nice. Phoenix can Sit, Lay,
Rollover. He has no food aggression with people or other dogs, is
submissive with humans, and rides well in the car. He is used to being on a
ranch and is fine with horses. He is fearful to be in crate and will try to
chew out hurting his teeth and gums. He's a little shy with new people but
warms up quickly. He is great at the groomers, loves attention and will make
someone a wonderful companion. He's very adotable! Let's help Phoenix find a
nice home - it would be nice if we could place him in the Sierra where it is
cool and he can run in the forest with you. Transportation help is available.
