Urgent! Auburn, CA - Sitka only has 3 weeks to find a home or she will be euthanized! She is a very frightened little Husky/mix that was rescued from a hoarding situation. She has had no socialization and is terrified of everything. Currently she sits in the corner and shakes, but will allow you to pet her. We are presently working with behavior modification to help her learn to trust, and hopefully within 2-3 weeks we can find her a new home. Sitka's home will need someone that is very experienced with shy and fearful dogs. Her new person will need escape-proof containment or to keep Sitka on leash when outdoors as she will be an escape risk. Some umbilical training will also be good for this pup as keeping her close will help her bond. We believe she is about 4-5 years old, and someone that loves the outdoors can teach little Sitka how to enjoy life outside of a kennel. We recommend a calm environment with no children or cats, but Sitka would love to have a canine companion ...  maybe a nice friendly male who will be her ambassador. We have high hopes for this Husky girl, and pray that someone will open their heart to give her a second chance at a wonderful life. Sitka is not a wolfdog but acts like one in many ways due to her fears. If you are interested in Sitka, please contact Pamela Jo right away at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net 
Meadview, AZ - Gorgeous and sweet, Elsa is a 2 y/o spayed female Husky/mix. She look so have some White German Shepherd in her with that slender long body of hers and beautiful white coat. She was rescued from a shelter and needs a home of her own within one month (March). She weighs about 60 lbs, is good with other large, friendly dogs, and does well on leash for the most part. As we all know, Huskies like to pull, but with some training she responds very well. She hasn't really been around small dogs, and so we are looking for a home with a large, friendly male companion and no cats.

Elsa eats well near other dogs but with ample space between for a comfort zone. She is submissive with humans, has not been around children that we know of. She likes to ride in the car but if left alone (in the car or house) she will chew. She needs some training in this ares to help her with some separation anxiety. Elsa likes to cuddle, loves to be with you, and enjoys being indoors as well as having outdoor activities. She is quiet and does not bark often, but will howl to greet you! Not a good guard dog as she loves everybody, and is a loyal companion. Elsa's foster mom has two cats and since Elsa has a high prey drive they are not comfortable in keeping her, so this beautiful girl needs a home to call her own. Please contact Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 or email her at PamelaJowolflady2@sbcglobal.net

San Francisco area - Rambo is a healthy 55lb, 12 month old male Malamute/Husky mix. His general disposition is friendly, energetic, and true to the Nordic breed spirit. He gets along with everyone, including house guests and strangers. He also greets other dogs with an invitation to play. 
Rambo is housetrained, crate trained and loves car rides.  However, he needs some training on the leash. His issue? Rambo tends to guard his food from other dogs and people. Therefore, he will not be placed in a home with children under age 14, and care should be taken with treats and feeding if other dogs live in the home. His owners should be prepared to actively manage food guarding issues and implement an evidence-based training program to help him make better choices. An ideal home for Rambo would be with active person or couple that can provide him with daily vigorous exercise. Another playful female dog and a large escape-proof yard would be a nice fit for him. He needs to be neutered prior to adoption. Overall, Rambo is a well-socialized, intelligent, and energetic dog who will make a nice companion to a very experienced Nordic breed family. If interested in adopting Rambo, contact Robin at   calmcompanionS@hotmail.com


Very Urgent! Losing home! - Southern California - Loki is a beautiful male,  just over 2 years old.  He is neutered, chipped, and up to date on vaccinations and weighs approximately 80lbs. Loki  has gotten along with his malamute brother, but is cautious and fearful with strange dogs and will need slow and calm introductions, he is not a “dog park” kind of guy but can be in the right hands eventually.  He is not good with small dogs or cats. Loki does great on leash, can be walked loose leashed and prefers to sniff than pulling.  He is housetrained,  and his signals to be let out are to pace back and forth while looking at you.  As Loki is stil a young pup he likes to chew, so ample chew bones and lots of daily exercise to keep him relaxed and happy would be best for this boy.  He has had basic obedience training, and knows Sit, Wait and is crate trained for short periods of time. He has no food aggression with people but can be a little possessive over his bones. He is not a known escape artist (does not jump/climb or try to dig out), but standard 6' fencing requirements for the breed will apply.  He is shy and submissive with strangers, but playful and affectionate with his family. Loki has a couple of special considerations. He has some separation anxiety and does not want to be left alone. He loves being with his family or friends so he will be placed in a home that has someone who works from home or is retired [around a lot or can take with]. We would like to find someone who can be patient and work with him to help make him feel secure. Loki had a bit of Pancreatitis and must remain on a strict grain-free diet with no extra protein or fat.  NO indigestible table scraps. We can help you with some diet suggestions if you are interested in adopting this sweetheart, so please contact Jennifer at  Jenniferreitman@gmail.com or call Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066. As with all our rescues an Adoption Application and Home Check will apply. 

Need permanent homes!  - Deadline was January 2016 - hoarder/breeder has too many dogs and county will confiscate and PTS if no homes are found by end of January. Space has opened up in our Adoption Program so LTWR is pulling two or three more of his dogs. They will go into our Foster homes where they will be taken to vet for exams, spay/neutering, and vaccinations. They will be groomed and soon ready for adoption. All appear to be in good health but some are very underweight. They have all been living outdoors in fenced yard with a bunch of other dogs their entire lives - all look similar and most mixes of Husky/Malamute/German Shepherd Dog [GSD]. They have not had much attention so are a bit shy. Some will need housetraining and leash walking but the ones in foster are already getting that attention, living indoors and loving it. We have rescued some other dogs from the same breeder and they have adapted well and are so happy in their new homes. [See Aphrodite in Adopted 2015 ] These dogs will have a very difficult time finding homes so please open your heart and help them out. They will not be adopted into homes with small dogs or cats. None seem to be escape artists in the home they have known for so long, but secure containment is required ... These dogs are ready to come into your heart as they are craving some real attention and love. If you are interested in saving one of these beautiful pups, please contact Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or our volunteer Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com  We urgently need help with vet costs so please donate if you can. Click on  Donations  As with all our rescues, an Adoption Application and Home Visit will apply. Here they are ...
Lake Tahoe -Adopted! Aries - 10-year-old senior White Husky. He weighs about 65 lbs and is best with other large dogs, especially females. He has no food aggression but likes be fed separately. He's a good dog, likes to snuggle and wants to be loved and petted a lot. He's good with kids but we don't think any of these dogs would be good in a home with cats. Aries has some arthritis in his hind quarters and can't romp and play with other dog, but a nice leash walk would do him well. He's getting nutrients and joint supplements which will benefit him, and as with all our seniors we recommend acupuncture and/or chiropractic treatments from time to time. All these dogs have been living in a large pen with many other dogs not getting any attention from the humans. They crave interaction and attention and will be shy at first with meeting new people but most warm up once they get to know you and are quite friendly. At ten years of age, Aries will be hardest to place simply because of his age. Sadly the older ones get passed up and wind up euthanized. Please find it your heart to help this sweet senior boy. Call Pamela Jo!  (775) 833-2066
In Foster Auburn - Cast - 3-year-old white Husky/GSD. He weighs about 60 lbs and should weigh much more! He is best with other large dogs and is very playful. He has no food aggression but likes to be fed separately. All these dogs are sweet and friendly but a bit shy when they first meet strangers. Cast is young and curious and is very underweight. He would would really do well with a healthy diet and a new home with someone who will love and care for him, especially if they have a sweet female canine companion for him.  Call Pamela Jo!  (775) 833-2066
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.com    Transportation help is available.
