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 is well behaved, very strong and very spirited. Playing with toys and balls – you can see the joy in her! Sally likes to have a human companion around her most of the time as she gets very lonely. 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?). Won’t you consider making this girl your very own?

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.

      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 Zephyr is 18 months old and came into rescue with a broken back leg. Surgery was done to mend .his leg and he has just completed his healing period and is now ready for his forever home. Zephyr is very energetic and active. He does need training as he is still very young and full of zest. He has an adorable freckled muzzle and is a sweet and loving boy despite his rocky start in life. Zephyr will take off like a bat out of hell if he gets away from you. So be warned! Zephyr was very good about being brushed and just loves to give kisses! He loves attention so much that he wags his tail when all you do is look at him! He is super playful and enjoys a good romp, but was also very good about taking breaks and chilling out in the house. Zephyr is a quick learner and seems to know sit, down, and give paw. He was friendly with every dog he met- large, small, male or female. He pulls very hard at the beginning of the walk, but after a few corrections (stopping and looking the other way, etc) he quickly caught on and pulled less and less. He will get the hang of it very quickly with praise. When in the yard, as long as not engaged in play, Zephyr came every time he was called. He's very attentive and eager to please.

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Hi, My name is Starbucks! I am a beautiful husky, about 1 year old. I like people and other dogs, but am a little shy, so sometimes it takes a while for me to warm up to others. I do like people and other dogs my size, but if the dog is a lot bigger or smaller than me, I can get fussy. I do needs basic training, and would love daily walks. I do 'sit' for attention. My leg has an owie (partially torn cruciate) that my foster mom is taking me to the vet to have repaired. I do have a high “prey drive” – so please no cats or other small critters (as usual).

      Posted Breed: Norwegian Elkhound / Siberian Husky / Mixed (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/Norwegian Elk Hound Hey, everybody! Spencer here. I’m around 3 years old, and I am looking for my forever home. I would love to meet you. Not to brag, but I am a very friendly, uniquely handsome fellow. You should know a few other things about me: I’m not your average husky. You’ve probably seen lots of huskies, but never seen one who looks like me before. That’s because I am a husky-Norwegian Elkhound mix. A very unusual combination, but a great one! I am medium-sized (about 50 pounds), and I have sweet brown eyes (the better to gaze lovingly at you with) and the most beautiful lush thick coat. Mixes like me can also be great for first-time husky owners, since we can be a little bit easier to contain. I do have a lot of energy and need a little training, but I’m a smart boy and I’ll learn quickly. Be ready for a lot of attention when we go for walks, because I am quite a head-turner. I might not be 100% husky, but I assure you I am 100% awesome! I’m looking for a committed long-term relationship. People always love me when they meet me. I always love them, too! Over and over people tell me they can’t believe I’m still available. Well, I can’t believe it either! So, what do you say? Will you be my person? I want to be the only dog for you. Okay, I know this sounds kind of greedy, but I want to have my own person so much, I won’t want to share them with any other dog, at least to start out. For that reason, I will need to be the only dog in your home. I truly love people, though, and will happily spread my love around to all the humans in the house! I’m so into you. Please contact rescue@norsled.org, and tell them you want to come meet me soon so that we can fall in love and begin a lifetime of adventures together! I’m ready!

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Hello there! I’m Belle, and I am between 1 and 2 years old. I’m waiting to find The One who will give me a good home and love me completely. I’m a natural beauty (my photos don’t do me justice, if I may say so!), and I have a very sweet disposition. Before we meet, I’d also like you to know a little bit about my background: I’m a mom. I was pregnant and homeless in the animal shelter. It was really scary, but then Norsled came to my aid. I was so relieved to be somewhere safe. I had my puppies just 3 days after being taken into rescue. We really got lucky! My foster mom took excellent care of all of us. I was a good mom, and now my babies have all grown up and been adopted into happy homes. It’s my turn now! I’m a learner. I love to learn and I love my training. I know how to take treats with a soft mouth and won’t nip your fingers. I walk pretty well on a leash, but I am still learning the finer points of that. I can pull really, really hard so I might like to try mushing someday, if you’re up for it. I also know how to sit, especially if you have a treat for me. Treats are the best part of training! They really motivate me. I adore humans. I love people so much! I want to be everyone’s friend. However, I don’t always get along with other dogs. I’ll need to be the only dog in your home, at least in the beginning. I think I could learn to be less reactive around other dogs with time. But I’ll need your help with that! Come up and see me sometime. I’m eager to meet you and charm your socks off the way I know I can. Email norsled@rescue.org and tell them you’ve got to meet me in person. You won’t be sorry!

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Ginger is a beautiful, loyal dog looking for her new adult companions. She's estimated to be about six to eight years of age. She loves going for walks and runs with her human friends (although can show a bit of leash aggression to other pups and could use some leash training). She's great at a dog park, and is respectful of gates inside a house, though she will be happy to take herself for a run if a door is left open! She's also very content to be hanging out in the house or yard where she can keep an eye on her people as well as on any squirrels in the yard. Ginger is not good with smaller animals or small children so would ideally find a home with adults or older kids only. Ginger is a bit picky about her dog companions but generally bigger/older seem better, and once they settle dominance she is usually ok. She only digs under distress - not an escape artist, but will take obvious escape paths :). - 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.

      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 Sloan is a very young female currently being fostered with 4 other Northern dogs (2 male/2 female). In less than a week, she transitioned from "terrified" to "pretty darn social". She plays ALL day with the other dogs - she especially LOVES any game with water! She makes up her own games! She doesn't like to be left out of anything and if she is nervous she will just watch and learn until she is comfortable joining. She is a very curious and smart girl. Sloan is very much still a puppy. She comes when called and hikes on leash. She sleeps in a crate (absolutely her choice) and we are still working on fine tuning her potty training. She can be a bit shy, for good reason. This poor young girl had a tough start. was found hiding in a difficult to access area – having just given birth to puppies. Animal control had trouble catching her. Meanwhile, someone stole her puppies. A gentle, patient home with at least one other dog would be best for Sloan. She is on her way to being a stellar part of someone's family.

He is an affectionate, smart and beautiful dog who needs lots of space and tons of physical exercise in order to be his best selfl Caliente is a keeper!

      Breed: Siberian Husky
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      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 Phoenix came into rescue in October 2016. She was found in the country, malnourished and suffering from mange and worms. Passer-byes witnessed her in the exact same spot curled up. No food or water. She was too weak to walk. Someone posted her on Facebook and after numerous “someone should help”, “I’ll pray for her”, “wish I could help” comments, someone finally got the exact address of where she was and reported it to animal services. She was picked up and held for 3 days. Norsled picked her up the day she was to be put down. Her worms, mange and malnourishment were easily treated. It is her psychological damage that has taken some time to heal. This is why she wasn’t put up for adoption after healing physically. She shivered at human touch for months. She had to be caught each time she was approached. She never once showed aggression of any kind. Once cornered, she cowered down and submitted. After several months of being in the yard, her foster was finally able to bring her into the house and potty train her. She’s potty trained if she is taken out for bathroom breaks. She’s still afraid to let you know she needs to go. She does try to hold it though. She is great with other dogs. Prefers small Chihuahua type dogs. She allows the small dog to get the better of her. She will lay down and let the small dog play attack dog on her neck. It looks like a massage. Haha She fears bigger dogs. If they’re too rough she will cower down. She will fight back if they attack. The foster’s dog attacked her yesterday. Even though she was losing, Phoenix put up a good fight. Of course this fight lasted 30 seconds because foster threw herself in the middle. Phoenix’s foster sister Ciri can be a brat and sometimes takes cheap shots on Phoenix. Phoenix either drops to the floor or sprints away to avoid Ciri. So Phoenix can tell the difference between an annoying dog and a threatening dog. Phoenix absolutely loves her foster family, including children. Of course the children are trained to be good to the dogs. Even though Phoenix is in love with her family, she still has a level of fear. If her foster mom raises her voice at the kids or raises her hand in a quick motion…Phoenix will drop or run. You can see the fear in her eyes. So confused. She sleeps at the foot of the bed. She will curl up and try not to take too much room. Once foster dad leaves for work, she will snag his side and stretch out. She will bark at the pool guy and at the fence if she hears commotion from the other side. Her barking is not loud and it is sporadic like woof…woof…………..woof…………woof, woof, woof……………..woof. She does say a few choice words to foster mom when foster mom is gone too long. It sounds like a child arguing back. She has some separation anxiety still. Not nearly as bad as the beginning though. We’ve lost a remote, ipad, and a few toys. I blame us for leaving them down. She’s much better if she’s left in the living room while we’re gone. If she’s left in a bedroom, especially alone without other dogs, she will dig at the carpet at the door and destroy anything in her reach. Then yell at foster family when we return. Zero food aggression. In fact, she will just not eat if others are eating. She will let others eat all her food too. So we have to make sure she gets her food. Follows her family around the house. She doesn’t get in the way, but loves to be in the same room with her family and will get up to follow. She ran out the front door once. It took an hour of chasing across a busy road and nearly getting hit several times to get her cornered. She did try to bite that one time. But her fear and bite were understandable given the whole ordeal. She hasn’t tried again. She only goes outside to potty. We’ve made no attempts to take her for walks. She’s content with living inside forever. Extremely gentle with people. Rarely jumps on foster mom. When she does, it’s super soft like feathers. If she kisses, it’s weak and gentle licks. She can jump straight up from the floor to the top of the captain’s bed. (twice as high as a normal bed), but makes no attempt to jump a fence. Phoenix would do great with a retired couple that aren’t in a rush. She is content with sharing a bed and couch with a couple head rubs. Low maintenance dog. She would not do good with busy family working all day and very active at home getting things done at night. Prefer home with small dogs or one gentle big dog. 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.

People tell me I am beautiful, and small for a husky. I love my doggie buddies, and am always trying to get them to play with me! I do love to play with my toys and will play tug-of-war with my fellow fosters. However, I don't always know what is my toy, and what is off limits – like hairbrushes and toothpaste tubes. I still need some help with boundaries. I was not treated kindly when I was little so I am very shy around people. My current foster mom is encouraging me to come up to her: she feeds me by hand - and includes CHICKEN in with the kibble! (I LOVE chicken). And she pets me while I am eating. I am working on learning to trust people. I have learned to do my business outside, and even sleep in the crate- I put myself in the crate at night - so I can get that bedtime treat! That treat helps me sleep through the night - at least that is what I say. I need a home with at least one other playful dog and a person who is around quite a bit and will take the time to work with me to raise my comfort level being around people. Can you help me learn to trust? Please?
