 Very Urgent! VENICE, CALIFORNIA  **Meet most beautiful Bella - up for adoption!
Ms Bella is about 3 1/2 years old, UTD on vaccinations and spayed. She was a stray intake in shelter. She is a VERY sweet, quiet girl. Bella is a little  shy with strangers but once she warms up she wants you to hold her paw or will rest her paws on your lap. She is happy to go to her crate for security or lie quietly by your side. She has a beautiful coat, gorgeous eyes, and is about 65lbs. She does well with other large dogs (including females) but prefers not to engage in play or antics, content to watch from the sidelines. Bella is not good with small dogs or cats so she will not be adopted into a home with small animals. Bella will do best in a calm, quiet adult home. An active, busy household with small children is not a good fit for her. She is content with nice, slow leisurely walks and doesn’t need a particularly active (running, hiking) lifestyle. Bella can be a bit skittish and jumpy and will need to always be on secure collar/harness. Secure, esacpe-proof fencing, home check and application apply. Bella will only be adopted out to a home on the West Coast, preferably California or Nevada (Sierra). Oregon and Washington will be considered for the right family. For an application or more information contact jenniferreitman@gmail.com 
URGENT Midlothian, TX - Needs home in 1 month  Night Runner is a beautiful 5 1/2 y/o Malamute mix who is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. His owner rescued him after he lived - severely neglected and skin and bones - on a chain for 4 years She has been fostering him for about 1 1/2 years. She spent a lot of time rehabbing this pretty boy as he was terribly fearful and scared of everything. He is still very shy but warms up once he knows and trusts you. Night needs a home right away as she can no longer keep him. He is a big boy but will run and hide under the bed from kids as they scare him with their noises and quick movements. He absolutely will only be adopted into a home that has no kids, cats or small prey-like animals. He pulls a lot on leash as he is so fearful of everything but with a patient and experienced handler he should soon be having more confidence and trust. This poor boy suffered from all those years of isolation on the chain, and who knows what people did to him. Night needs an escape-proof fenced yard. He presently has 8' and does not even try to escape. He likes to dig dens in the yard but not for escaping. He will come when called, especially if you have some treats! He is submissive with people and depends completely on his current canine companion for security. He will have separation anxiety if his buddy is taken away but he is fine when left alone with his doggie friend... so we would like to find a home that has a friendly, large canine companion for him. Night loves to ride in the car as that's how he can view the outside world without being challenged. Once or twice he got loose but jumped right into the car when found (may not be as easy with a new owner, so prevention is the best bet!). Transportation help is availalbe up to about 3 hours, so please find it in your heart to give this boy a second chance at a good life. Night needs an experienced, patient person who can spend a lot of time with him. . . someone retired, works at home, etc. If you are interested in meeting Night Runner, please contact Pamela Jo at PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net   Time is of the essence!

 PORTLAND OREGON - Bella is a stunning pure white Samoyed/husky mix and she is 3 yrs old and spayed. Bella was raised in a home with an active male owner, rides well in cars, enjoys long walks, and has been a lovely road trip companion in the past. But Bella takes some time to warm up to new people, and is partially-blind in one eye. Because of this, she has become fearful of certain stimuli, and has snapped or growled at unfamiliar people who enter her personal space. She was also initially trained with some harsh dominance-based methods, and has had a hard time trusting folks that she has not bonded to as a result. She will do best with someone kind and patient but also that has experience with helping a dog to learn to trust. It will take time and gentle training to make Bella feel at home. We feel that it would be best to place her in an adult-only family with no Bsmall animals, as she has showed prey drive toward squirrels on her walks. Other large-breed dogs are okay and maybe a nice friendly male companion would work well. Bella currently shares her life with a female Husky although Bella would be happy being the only dog as long as she gets lots of exercise and attention. Once you gain Bella's trust, she is all cuddles and happiness. She will give you her paw to say "Please pay attention to me!" and likes to play ball. A calm and low-traffic household would suit her best, so perhaps a farm or similar rural living environment would do with proper fencing. She is a great guard dog and will alert as soon as she feels that something is awry, but quiets down quickly after letting her people know what's up!

STILL IN THE SHELTER! - THIS SWEET BOY NEEDS A HOME! Everette, WA - Max is a gorgeous Husky/Malamute mix who will be 2 years old in February and is currently in jail where his new owners just dumped him because he killed a kitty. This is why we do not adopt northern breeds into homes with cats, small dogs or other small animals. They can be amazing companions for the right person who is active outdoors and around a lot to give them the care and training they all need. He was originally surrendered into Rescue because he is a bit of an escape artist and his owners were not able to keep him contained on their property. During one of his escapades he got injured and is now almost blind in one eye. This does not seem to bother him at all, and he is still very handsome. Only when you look close can you see a bit of cloudiness in his eye. 
Max is a little shy at first, but becomes a very sweet playful boy with a lot of Husky-energy once he gets to know you. He needs a house with a big yard and secure 6-7 foot fencing. Max is very good with other dogs and would do best with a buddy. He has been living with cats in his foster home and has shown no interest in them until this recent incident, so now will not be adopted into a home with cats. He had made fast friends with his doggie-housemates but now in a shelter is in danger of being killed. Max would do best with a woman, since he is frightened of men. He is very smart and sensitive, so he could probably learn to get along with a man who is calm and very patient, but it will take time. Due to his fear of men, he would not be good in dog parks. Max is looking for a home where he can feel safe and loved. As long as he gets enough exercise and feels no need to escape, he will be a wonderful and fun family member.  
Max has not been exposed to small children during his time in foster. 
Max is neutered and all his shots are up-to-date. Please contact Kim for an Adoption Application at KimKahl@dukewarner.comm     Transportation help is available
