VERY URGENT! Currently in a shelter and time is of the essence!
SHE ONLY HAS ONE DAY! Tala is a spayed 5-year-old Northern-breed mix of mostly Malamute and German Shepherd Dog [GSD] sold originally as a Native American Indian Dog [NAID] from a breeder. Tala weighs about 95lbs and is very beautiful! She gets along with adults and children and likes to be indoors with you [in air conditioning], outdoors when it's cool out. She likes attention and leash walks. She has been escaping her yard and becoming more aggressive toward other dogs. We feel that Tala has good potential to becoming a well-balanced companion with daily exercise, doggie classes where she can be properly socialized in a controlled environment, and an experienced handler. She is in desperate need of either local rescue assistance OR a qualified adopter with appropriate escape-proof containment, and no other dogs.
Time is of the essence.  Contact Tina at tvalant@aol.com
In foster - will need permanent home soon ...

SoCal - Cheyenne is a poor, sweet girl that has been bred too many times for her short life. She is only about 1-1/2 years old and was in extremely poor condition. She spent the first week after rescue in the vet, as she was pretty much on the brink of death but look at her now! [photo left]. She was extremely malnourished and underweight, weighing only 45lbs. when she should weigh about 85 lbs. She had an infected abscess on her neck and was generally in absolute terrible condition - worse than some of the shelter strays we’ve pulled. She is leashable, able to be handled (she does fear poop and pee) and does not bite. She’s just a very scared and skittish girl. So, I’m hoping someone has a home to open up to her here in California (preferably within 4 hours from Southern California), to help her heal, learn to trust, have time to decompress, get healthy and put weight on. Then we can start looking for a forever home for this sweetie. Cheyenne is approximately 1-1/2 yearsold. She is a very sweet girl but she is very very unsure of new people and new situations. She needs a very calm presence around her to help socialize her and show her that people can be trusted. Once Cheyenne understands that she is safe with someone, she’s happy to be petted and curl up on a couch to nap. She has not demonstrated any food or resource aggression with people. She’s currently fostered with cats and shows only mild curiosity. She’s also gone nose to nose with small dogs and doesn’t show any prey drive with them either. She was introduced to a senior female GSD and was fine as well, but as can be the case, she is just too sick and too weak to care about anything at the moment. She is too weak to spayed so she cannot be fostered with an intact male, or dog that is too energetic or too playful that would stress her out or hurt her. Cheyenne is most certainly an escape risk and would bolt if she has the chance - like any of these poor babies - so escape-proof containment is absolutely necessary. If you think you have the time, love and experience to help this girl and would like to foster her until she is well, please contact Jennifer at Jennifer@damemedia.com 

Urgent - So. California - Whitman. Whitman is a beautiful boy, and sweet as can be! He is estimated to be under 2 years old. He is UTD on vaccinations and neutered. He is very underweight right now, weighing only 45 lbs. [should weigh about 82-86 lbs.] Since Whitman was just recently pulled from a Los Angeles shelter, we’re still getting to know him, but we will update as we get to know him better. He is shy of new people and situations, but once he warms up he’s a kissy face boy, happy for petting and affection and treats and will stick to you like glue. He is slightly afraid of men, and likely needs a slow introduction to men. He is housetrained and does well in the car and on a leash (but can be skittish, so secure martingale collar/harness is a must). He does not appear to have any food aggression. While at the shelter, he was tested with a large German Shepherd who jumped all over him, and he had no reaction. He also did not spark to any of the dogs he was walked past, including smaller dogs that were running in an enclosure. Whitman does seem to have a VERY strong prey drive, as he was more than a little interested in the bunnies at the shelter when walked up to them. So no cats or small critters (including tiny dogs) please. We suspect he would be happy in a home with a female canine companion, and possibly even a gentle male. Application and home check will apply. We are looking for an experienced committed long-term foster or forever home. Whitman can only be fostered in Calfornia and placed in the following states: California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona or Nevada – with preference to California adopters. For an application or more information please contact Jennifer Reitman at jenniferreitman@gmail.com as soon as possible. Thank you!


RESCUED! Black Canyon City, AZ 

Prince is a 7-year-old gorgeous white male, born on Cinco de Mayo! He is a family teddy bear! He lost one of his eyes when he had Valley fever but recovered and doing fine now. Prince is on a Royal Canin/special diet and good water and he's a healthy boy. Once he loves you and you respect who he is, he is the best companion that anyone could wish for ... at your side every steps of the way! Owners love him and are saddened to give him up. Some socialization training will be needed as he is a strong protector for the one he loves and doesn't like everyone. An experienced handler, proper environment and lots of time and attention will help this boy learn to enjoy a new home. He is distrustful of new people and slow introduction is best so he can learn all is ok. He does pull on leash so some training in this area is needed as well. He can act in a dominant fashion with men but once he gets to know you he can be a great companion. Prince has not had much exposure to new dogs - other than his own companions - so socialization should be part of the agenda. We will not adopt Prince into a home with children, small dogs or cats. Garbage should be kept under wraps and he can be an escape artist so secure containment is required. He is a beautiful and sweet boy for the right person.

If you think you would like to give Prince a loving forever home, and have the experience to help him learn to trust, please contact Jennifer at
Los Angeles area, CA - Puppygirl!  At 8 weeks of age, this adorable Malamute-looking girl has a low-content wolfdog Mom and a high-content wolfdog Dad - so an experienced handler will be needed for this sweetie for when she grows up - and she may be a big girl. Don't let those markings fool you. Secure, escape-proof containment and someone who is around a lot to help socialize her as she matures would be best for Puppygirl. Adoption Application, Home Visit and Spay Deposit will be required. If you would like kto know more about this ball of fluff, please contact Jennifer at JenniferReigman@gmail.com 
 Aries needs your help! 
Vacaville, CA - Aries is a beautiful 5-month-old Husky/Shepherd mix who is up to date on vaccinations. She will need to be spayed, micro-chipped, and undergo surgery for an injured rear leg, prior to adoption. We are working to raise the funds for her surgery as she needs leg surgery as soon as possible. Spaying can wait for now. 
She had been raised with small dogs and is friendly and playful with other dogs. She rides well in the car and is friendly with people. Aries has no experience with young children, so we would like to place her in a home that is calm where she can recuperate. Her general disposition is energetic and playful. Once her leg is healed she will likely enjoy an active lifestyle as most other Nordic breeds.
She will, however, need an adopter who understands confidence building and the time and patience that young dogs require (house-training, leash-training, etc.) as Aries is a bit shy and unsure.
If you are an experienced dog owner, understand northern breeds, and feel this beautiful girl might be a nice addition to your family, please contact our Adoption Counselor, Robin, at calmcompanions@hotmail.com or Jennifer at Jennifer@damemedia.com  Time is of the essence as we want to get her procedure done and on the road to playtime! Please send any donations to our PayPal if you want to help Aries get her surgery. Just click on this link: Donations 
Sweet Home, Oregon - needs placement very soon. Currently in foster and doing very well but foster can't keep her much longer... Peanut is a 45 lb, spayed little girl of 10 yrs. Peanut appears to be a husky mix. She is part of a larger group of dogs whose owner lost their property recently. We are hoping that someone with a kind heart for older dogs will come forward as most people want young pups, and the sweet older ones have difficulty finding homes even though they are very adoptable! Peanut is a gregarious little girl and with someone who will be patient and kind, she will open up to them. Peanut would do best having a nice male companion ... her best friend was adopted and she was heartbroken so we really want her to have a sweet boyfriend. Peanut is in great condition and has no medical issues. She will not be placed where there are small children, cats or small doggies. Please contact Kim at kimkahl@dukewarner.com or call 541-382-0065 for more info and an adoption application.
NE Washington near Spokane. Jack is a beautiful big boy of approximately 8-9 yrs of age. He was part of a large group of Malamute mixes who lost their home this past spring. Jack is one of three dogs who has not yet found his forever home. Over 15 dogs lived wild and free on a large, wooded, fenced property and were never socialized to anyone but the immediate family who lived there. None of the dogs had the benefit of being able to come in the house or walked on leash. From a dog's point of view, it must have been pretty ideal being able to run and play in the woods, swim in the pond and hunt critter's and not have to do anything they did not want to do....however, from an adopter's point of few, it has presented a myriad of issues. The saving grace is that Jack and his two companions are sweet, non aggressive dogs ... they just don't know about things like being petted and loved on or having a cushy dog bed to rest on in the house. 

Jack has been at the foster home since May and enjoys getting his hot dog treats and does allow the foster mom to pet him and seems to enjoy it ... he has even started to play. Jack will need a new home with someone very patient, loving and kind who can continue to give him the time he needs to feel secure and trust. He has always been at the bottom of the totem pole in his former dog family and has a very subdued and submissive personality. His former owner had to bring him in the house for a brief moment just to give him his meat treats because Jack always let the other dogs take them away. Jack will need a fenced yard where he will be kept safe from harm and a nice dog hous to have shelter from the weather. He may in time decide he would like to come in the house so an open door policy would be awesome. We think it would be wonderful if someone had a heart big enough to adopt both Jack and Peanut together but we also realize that most people already have a dog and if that is the case, Jack will needs a dog companion who is gentle and not a dominant, aggressive personality but one who will be kind to him and become his best friend. 

Because Jack is not leash trained and is so socially withdrawn, he will need to be transported all the way to his new home in a crate and not taken out until he is in the fenced area of his new yard. Therefore, there won't be able to be any real long distance adoptions...only where he can be driven to in one day's time. 
For more information and an adoption application for Jack please contact Wolf Angel Rescue at: kimkahl@dukewarner.com
