Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (short coat). Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions. Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Sally is about 9 years old. She is a really sweet girl who loves people and loves children! She was incarcerated at Big Bear prior to NorSled's intervention. Sally is very picky with other dogs so needs to be the only dog in her new home. She needs someone who is patient and loving (don't we all?). She is well behaved, very strong and very sprite. She loves to play with toys and balls and she likes to have a human companion around her most of the time as she gets very lonely. Won’t you consider making this girl your very own? If you are interested in any of the dogs, the first step is to fill out an adoption questionnaire found on our website and email it back to rescue@norsled.org.

Siberian Husky

A.K.A. : Chukcha, Chuksha
Overview: The Siberian Husky is very similar in looks to the Alaskan Malamute, yet somewhat smaller in build and not quite as bold. Still, he needs a strong-willed owner who will stay in control. This dog loves to roam and explore, so he needs a nice big yard.
Breed Group: Working
Weight (lbs): male: 45-60, female: 35-50
Height (in): male: 21-23.5, female: 20-22
Colors: All colors from black to pure white.
Coat: Coat is double-layered and medium-length. The guard hairs of the outer coat are straight and somewhat smooth lying. The undercoat is soft and dense and of sufficient length.
Character: Siberian Huskies are not particularly good watch dogs, because they want to befriend everyone they meet. They love to roam and are full of energy and independence.
Temperament: This breed gets along well with other Huskies, but they need to be trained carefully if they're to be kept with other household pets. They will not get along with cats or other small animals, though they do well with children.
Care: Its coat needs brushing one or two times a week, daily during periods of heaviest shedding.
Training: This breed is very intelligent and independent. Handlers should take this into consideration and use patience and understanding during training.
Activity: The Siberian Husky needs to be involved in physical activities and requires a well-fenced yard. If they are not kept active, they can be very destructive and noisy.
Country of Origin: Russia
Health Issue: This breed is relatively healthy, but some have heart disease and eye problems, along with dermatitis.
Life Expectancy: 11-13

More About Siberian Husky Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

He walks well on a leash and does fine in the car. Wiley does need a bit more socialization with other dogs but he does know the play bow and did try to play with a female dog after she corrected him.

He is high energy, but take him for a good walk or a romp in the dog park in the morning and he will be a cuddle bug all day. He likes the chew (especially on straps) so always have something you can trade with him until he learns what is yours and what is his. At home, he loves just cuddling up and he is pretty calm and will relax with you. He is such a great dog with such positive energy. He deserves a family who can give him the proper attention and care that he needs. Taku is a sweetheart of a dog. He is goofy, and fun, and happy go lucky. He is a high energy dog that would love to find an active home. He is big and needs some manners and training, He is learning how to walk on the leash and to sit. He loves to please.

      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (short coat). Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions. Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Panda is an approximately 6 year old spunky and somewhat zoftig female Siberian Husky. Panda found herself incarcerated at Yolo County Animal Shelter. Panda was relinquished after only 4 months with her new family. Panda is very affectionate and bonds quickly. She can be vocal, her range is bass to high C. She is content to hang out at your feet and be petted. She loves her walks, needs some training with pulling but is very responsive to correction and eager to please. Panda is housebroken and crate trained. She is very new to rescue but so far has not shown any destructive tendencies. Panda is a big girl and has a very strong prey drive towards small dogs and cats. She can be trained to ignore them while on leash, she is already much improved after only 3 days in her foster home, but will need to be on leash at all times when being walked. For that reason, Panda needs a husky savvy home. If you have questions about Panda or would like to adopt her contact Norsled or her foster at christianad@sbcglobal.net. If you are interested in any of the dogs, the first step is to fill out an adoption questionnaire found on our website and email it back to rescue@norsled.org.

Rides well in the car, pretty good on leash but could use some training. Used to being with other dogs, and gets along with them. When she arrived at Cottage Kennels, she decided to serenade all those in the office. Junebug came to us with heartworm. She has since been treated and now has a clean bill of health.

Siberian Husky Garland is a gorgeous, super friendly young boy who loves to walk on a leash, loves to give kisses and is friendly with other dogs. He is stuck in an open-air kennel with no exercise and not enough human contact. Garland is adorable and charming dog I've met in a while. Here are some photos we took in my front patio. He is definitely up for a foster home soon. I am betting someone in this small country town "bought" a husky because, well, he is absolutely beautiful. not knowing what would be involved. he may have gotten out and never been reclaimed. Although he is not a "first" husky - getting him into the back of my truck today reminded me of a greased pig contest, he will train easily and be a wonderful companion. a VERY VERY impressive little pup.

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Dilbert is one of those huskies who really tugs at your heart strings. He came in at 40 something pounds, skin and bones but he has a big head! fur very dry and blowing coat. He has obviously had something happen around the neck, because he will nip if you try to put a collar on. However, if you feed him chicken he gets up in your lap and gives you kisses. This boy has so much potential, but he needs a lot of people to assure him that all humans aren't bad and that it is safe where he is. Our transporter fell in love. I had a delightful time feeding him chicken and calming him. Getting some weight on him is a first critical step. This very scared husky will bloom when he feels less threatened. a Diamond in the Rough! And we hate the name too but he came with it. Dilbert is around two years old.

He came to Norsled several months ago with a horrible case of mange and was also found to have a pulmonary stenosis. He underwent treatment for the mange and is now healthy and has grown back a beautiful coat, and is all ready to move on to the next chapter of his life...with a loving human and a home to call his own. His foster family has not seen any signs or symptoms from the pulmonary stenosis that limit Justice’s ability to play or go for walks. It would probably be best that he is not a jogging friend. He gets along with other dogs and loves to play. He is also calm and very smart. Please give this awesome boy a second chance in life!

Slippers, plastic containers, paper bags, anything she can find she will play with - and chew up! She likes playing with buddies and is currently living with other dogs. She will slip through a gate if given a chance, even if just to see another part of the backyard. Darla can and will jump a 6-foot fence so she needs to be in a home with a higher fence or contained in a kennel with a lid, or left inside if she is unsupervised. Darla does have a very strong prey drive so cannot be around small animals or livestock. When not up to shenanigans, she is calm and sweet, and a really lovely girl. Her adopter will have to be smart to keep up with this girl! \ If you are interested in any of the dogs, the first step is to fill out an adoption questionnaire found on our website and email it back to rescue@norsled.org.

      Breed: Alaskan Malamute
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Walnut Creek, CA
      Posted Breed: Alaskan Malamute (long coat). Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions. Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Malamute Courtesy posting: Please email : heartmom2013@gmail.com if you are interested in Hana. Hana is a beautiful full Malamute female. Although she is 5 and a half, you would think she is still a puppy. She is high energy, talkative and loves meeting new people. She is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped. She weighs in at about 80 lbs. She has a thick undercoat and requires regular grooming by an experienced groomer (it takes a lot of time, and she loses patience towards the end). She is friendly to other large friendly dogs if introduced properly. Hana has been professionally trained as a puppy and knows how to walk on a leash with an occasional reminder to follow the rules. She is good with children but forgets how big she is can potentially knock them down. She guards her food and anything she gets in her mouth from both humans and dogs. She will destroy most dog toys and beds in a matter of minutes with pieces or all of the toy going into her belly (this includes tennis balls) her favorite toy is her Kona ball; she has yet to destroy one of those. Hana does not have separation anxiety but would love to have a human buddy to spend lots of time with her. She does well in the car as long as the car secures her in the back. She is house trained on the potty front but any small thing she can get in her mouth will be hers and would likely find a forever home in her stomach. Hana has also been exercised by running alongside a bicycle (though it has been awhile so she might need a reminder session). She will be a great addition to a house with experience in sled dogs.
