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.

NOT very food motivated. Not a first husky. He is big and very strong. He is not for the faint of heart. He was obviously with someone who spoiled him, and he likes to get his own way. Rumor is strong-willed and quite challenging. He needs a runner or active person, and he has great potential. Rumor is good with other dogs and will need daily exercise to burn off surplus energy. He has zero training, although he does know sit but he is very smart and will learn very quickly if given the time and patience. Rumor is a sweet boy who needs a husky savvy person and loving place to hang his hat and call home. He is not for a first time husky owner.

      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 Hi, my name is Sunshine, but you can call me SunnyBunny. 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 did not have proper socialization with people when I was a puppy - so I shy away from hands but do come up on my own and give kisses and but nips. 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. Other than that, it is hard for me to trust people enough to come up to them, but I am working on it. 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 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 have been known to chew slippers, shoes, jeans, hair brushes, screwdrivers, wooden dowels, and towels when left in teeth range. I also have been known to climb on the stove and try to eat dinner out of the stew pot, while it was boiling. That was a couple of weeks ago since then I have learned to stay off the stove. But I still need some help with boundaries. I absolutely 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. I will probably always be a little shy, but since I have come so far in the past 2 months, I bet I can do better. Can you help me learn to trust? Please?

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Starbuck is about a year old and has had a litter of puppies. She may initially act dominant with other dogs, but has successfully had playmates of her size. She is food motivated. We don't feed dogs in the same space, so don't know if she would be protective. There are toys in the yard that never caused a problem between her and other dogs - same with people visiting the yard. Starbuck is a little less vocal than most huskies. She needs basic training but does get walks here. She has an automatic 'sit' for attention. starbucks takes time to warm up, she's sensitive and shy, much better with another dog ( we tried a male), not treat motivated and would benefit from daily walks. She was like another dog when with the male, much more confident. Starbucks does have a partially torn cruciate which we are working on having repaired. No cats or other small critters (as usual) but she has gotten some desensitization here being walked by a small office dog, an indoor cat & seeing our barn cats while on outdoor walks.

I am a bi-eyed beauty with one blue eye and one brown eye and beautiful black tipped ears. Will hang with you forever, sitting at your feet being petted, or watching the game. I do like my treats – and it shows in my weight (maybe need a little Jenny Craig…?). I am housebroken and crate-trained, but remember, when new to a house, it may take a few days before we are all communicating OK about when I need to go out. My foster mom says I am an accomplished singer with an amazing range! I like other dogs my size, but do have strong prey drive, and my foster mom has been working on teaching me not to pull on leash when walking.

Koda is about 2.5 years old and weighs 70lbs. He is a typical young husky/malamute mix. Pulls on leash and vigorously investigates everything. In the yard, he is fun-loving and affectionate. Koda loves his toys and will play catch-me-if-you can. If you do, he melts into you and gives up his toy for attention. We don't have an appropriate dog to introduce him to currently, but his behavior passing & living by others seems playful (if a bit forward ;) He is seeking attention when people are around, but entertains himself when alone. No escape tendencies and relatively quiet for the breed. Koda lived, successfully, in a small apartment for quite some time. All around, a super dog.

Jasmine's owner had passed away, and no family members wanted her or her siblings. That's where NorSled came to her rescue and is looking for her next forever home. Jasmine has a way with people and wants whatever you are eating. She love's a treat every once in a while and well talk to you and sit pretty and shake for it. She's a bit overweight right now but is on a diet and starting to enjoy dog food more. She currently weighs about 90lbs but losing weight now. Jasmine is a little protective over her food with other alpha dogs (She's getting better every day about not being so protective). Jasmine is a lover, and well demand it when she wants it. Once you start petting her, she won't let you stop. Jasmine loves going on walks and does well on the leash. She loves going for car rides and going to the dog park to play. Jasmine does well with other dogs and could have brother or sister or by herself. She doesn't mind cats ( surprisingly she just leaves them alone) Jasmine does need someone who well is with her most of the day. Jasmine has to be kenneled when left alone or be able to go outside. She also loves sleeping in her kennel. Jasmine is a huge sweetheart and ready to give all her love!!
