- WILL BE PTS 7/20 - Los Banos, CA
shelter - #2015-1314 Unaltered [will be neutered if
adopted], handsome male, Husky or Malamute. This rambunctious boy came in on the 4th of July. He's certainly a
beautiful creature with few manners. After a few lessons from me, he willfully sat for a brief
picture. "Briefly"is the operative word. He spent his yard time lounging in our pool keeping cool.
He gets along with female dogs – I don’t believe we tested him with males
yet. Friendly, though can try to be a tad dominant at times to get his way. He is around 2
yrs. old. We thought we had him adopted but it fell through. He will be put down after
the ACO gets back tomorrow (Monday, 7-20) if we don't find a
home for him. His owner stated he was a wolfdog but we feel he is a Malamute mix. Please help this
boy. For more information, contact Laureal at Los Banos

VENICE, CALIFORNIA **Meet most beautiful Bella - up
Ms Bella is somewhere around 3 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 nervous, shy and suspicious of 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 and lie quietly by
your side. She has a beautiful coat, eyes, and is about 65lbs. She does well
with other dogs (including small dogs and females) but prefers not to engage in play or antics,
content to watch from the sidelines. 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 (Sierras). Oregon and Washington will be
considered for the right family. For an application or more information
Very Urgent! 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. TIME

California - Ducky is currently in a
foster home in San Francisco, but will soon be transported to southern California. She is a real
sweetheart and very beautiful at about 4-5 years old she weighs 88 lbs. and is 29" at the shoulder.
Poor Ducky was living on a tie out for the past year and a half. Prior to that she was terribly
neglected and relegated to eating trash to survive. Now she bonds so quickly to people she hates to be
separated. Her separation anxiety means she needs a home with someone around a lot, someone who works at home or is retired. She may be destructive if left home alone.
She would also do best with another canine companion and secure escape-proof
yard. Ducky is spayed, chipped and UTD on all vaccinations. She is now
safe in a foster home but deserves a loving home of her own.She is a very, very special girl – truly a “heart dog."Ducky craves both human and canine companionship. She is
playing really well with her foster sister and has done well meeting new dogs, albeit a tiny bit
guarded at first. She can be a little shy of new people, but warms up quicky. She loves
to be petted and brushed, and once she gets to know you she just absolute loves people and other
dogs. While she has not had formal training, she is already learning to
sit and given her affectionate and loving nature she will like be easy to train and assimilate
into a home. She does not pull on leash, but will benefit from additional leash
training. She will need a patient, loving, nurturing home to show her what life is like as a
pet. If you would like to know more about Ducky and give her a forever home, please contact
Jennifer at email@example.com An Adoption Application and Home Visit
will be required
Urgent -Las Vegas area,
Nevada - Beautiful Luna with the golden eyes - she is a
4-year-old female Husky/Malamute that needs a home by end of July. She is about 65 lbs, spayed and
is up to date on vaccinations. She is also microchipped. She is a bit dominant with other dogs but
not aggressive - she likes to be the leader - so a home as an only dog with lots of exercise would
be great for her. She may be ok with the right [large] male that is not pushy. She loves that
one-on-one attention. She walks nicely on leash but does tend to pull a bit in the beginning if
she is excited. She has been kept outdoors all the time but is well behaved indoors as well.
Luna has no separation anxiety but likes to dig a bit for fun if she's left in the yard. Luna has had
basic training and is well behaved, but is submissive and shy at first meeting. She is a little afraid
of fast-moving, noisy kids ... so best in a home without children or a lot of excitement. Luna likes a
calm household, good daily exercise and an experienced handler. We would like to find a home for her in
the Sierra by the end of August as she will thrive and blossom in a cooler climate. Please contact
PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobl.net or Robin at
CalmCompanions@hotmail.com Transportation help is available.
Urgent! Lake Tahoe area - POLO -
beautiful White German Shepherd/Husky mix. He is 2 years old, neutered and up to date on vacc's.
He's very energetic and playful, yet calm with the proper daily exercise. He's well behaved and
is sociable with people and other dogs. Not good with cats. He does have the habit of humping
other dogs, so we would adopt him into a home with tollerant doggie companions! Polo needs lots of
exercise and training. He is currently in foster home in Las Vegas but we want to place him in a home in a cooler environment. We would love to find
someone with an already active lifestyle, who likes to hike and visit the lakes and streams. Polo
would love this! He would need at least 6' fencing. Transportation help is available to get
him into the Sierra, but we need committed and dedicated adopters so he is not passed around. He has a
lot of potential with an experienced person who has lots of time to give to this beautyboy.
If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, please contact our Rescue Coordinator Robin at
CalmCompanions@Hotmail.com or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or call (775) 833-2066
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
URGENT! Las Vegas, NV - Legend cannot be kept by
his owner any more so he only has about 3 weeks before he winds up at the shelter. Legend is a
Malamute/Husky mix and maybe Border Collie with those markings. He's 4 1/2 years old, neutered,
vaccinations, and weighs about 90 lbs. Legend is not very trustful of other dogs or men, and seems to be partial to female
owners that are calm and assertive. He needs someone that has experiences with northern breeds and
will take the time to give him some training and daily exercise. He's not very social with other dogs
so will need training and socialization in this area. He's not good with cats or small dogs although
he does live with a Chihuahua (we will not adopt to those with small animals). Legend also needs some
leash training as he does pull, but good daily exercise and an experienced handler can fix this
easily. He is not a jumper or climber, but does need at least 6 or 7' fencing. He has no food
aggression with people but is protective with other dogs. Legend likes to ride in the car. He is a
big family/pack dog and loves to cuddle and just hang with you. He would be best in a
home that is calm and disciplined, with no kids, nor lots of activity or visitors. His owner
does not know how to handle his dominance and will bring him to the pound if we do not find a suitable
home for Legend. Please help this dog. If you are interested in Legend, please contact ouor Animal
Coordinator, Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com
Urgent - Reno, Nevada - Arthus is a very
sweet 4-year-old male Husky that needs a home ASAP. He was rescued by a caring woman named
Sunshine just before the owners were going to have him euthanized. She cannot foster him
very long so time is of the essence. Arthus weighs about 70 lbs, is neutered, and up to date on
vaccinations. He likes other dogs and plays with them all. He is even good with cats! but of course we
always recommend supervision with the small creatures. Arthus walks nicely on leash and is
housetrained and crate trained. He's just a sweetie! He's not an escape artist but a new home would do
well to have 6' fencing as all rescues are lonely and scared when they go to a strange environment.
Arthus gives Shake and High Five, Speaks on command and plays Fetch. He's also good with kids.
Sweet Arthus would love a nice home with active owners and someone around a lot to keep him
company. Another canine companion would be really great for this boy. He is a bit worried as he is
still waiting for his owners to come get him and he follows his foster mom around everywhere she goes.
It's very sad when people buy these northern breeds and do not have the time or the energy to give
them the lifestyle they need. They often wind up at the shelter. An Adoption Application and Home
Visit is required to adopt all our rescues. If you are interested in giving Arthus a forever home we
would love to talk to you. Please contact Sunshine at firstname.lastname@example.org or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net
Anderson Valley, CA - This sweet and loving Shep has been waiting a
long time for his perfect home! He adores other dogs and humans of all ages. This is a dog that
loves to be around his family and companions, both dogs and people. He would do best having the companionship of at least one other friendly and playful
dog, while also getting to enjoy plenty of love and attention from his humans. An ideal situation
would be one in which someone is home the majority of the time, and there is the stability of calm,
Shep responds well to positive reinforcement training, as he is both sensitive and eager
to please! Although he is not accustomed to being in the house unsupervised, he is reliably house
trained and will happily sleep through the night on a dog bed in the bedroom. Shep gets along extremely
well with other dogs and is very playful; he shows no interest in being dominant or domineering, but
also is not submissive. A large enclosure/yard with secure 6’ fencing will be
best for him.
While Shep loves to go on adventures (hiking, etc), he also does not seem to have a high
need for extreme physical exercise, at least while living in a fairly large space of an acre or
more. Shep has no issues with food aggression or resource guarding. His progress with obedience
training in his foster home is a testament to his trusting nature, adaptability, and desire for positive
reinforcement. Shep will be an amazing companion for someone who can provide him with the right
environment, has large-breed experience, and is familiar with positive reinforcement training. Shep
needs a home without cats or other small animals as he has displayed a strong prey drive at his foster
home. An Adoption Application, including references and a home check, will be required for adoption. For
more information about Shep, please email Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com, or contact Kay by
phone at (559) 906-1829 / email at email@example.com.
Very Urgent - Montana
- This gorgeous 6-year-old Shepherd mix, Jacob cannot be
adopted where there are small animals or kids - his last home had a small child who tried to
take his chew toy out of his mouth and got nipped. The child wasn't supervised as all children should be when around animals, and the
bite wasn't serious, but poor Jacob wound up at the shelter and may be euthanized. The
shelter will only release him to a certified Rescue. Please help us get him out. Jacob is
sweet and playful and gorgeous and in the right hands will make a wonderful companion. If
you are interested in adopting or fostering Jacob, please contact Kim as soon as possible.
The shelter won't hold him forever. Kim Kahl firstname.lastname@example.org>
