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? 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.

      Breed: Siberian Husky

      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 Sweet Suki is a very uncomplicated and loving husky boy. Happy to be inside or outside, sleep on your bed or a dog bed nearby, he mostly is just a mellow and sweet love bug that gives gentle kisses and loves head scratches. Suki also loves food! Very much so, and this is his only real downfall, where he has difficulty remembering his manners. He was very overweight when we started to foster him, but while diet and training took him to a very healthy weight, he will need continued work in this area as he wants to eat food, ALL the food. Weve worked on staying out of the kitchen, not counter surfing, and Suki needs to be fed by himself. But, he now will sit on command before dinner and treats, he is also fully potty trained, and crate trained. Suki actually LOVES the crate, and will go in our X-large crate by himself, often, and just for fun. Suki is generally good with other dogs, though he shows much more interest in your company than dogs. He did well with the 7+ different ones we have here, mostly just hanging around with them, not actively engaging them in much play (though he does like to mount pretty females!). Probably between 2 and 4, hes past his crazy puppy energy stage and is more mellow, yet still youthful. I love it when he gets zoomies and spins circles! Suki will make a very sweet and easy companion, and unlike many huskies, would be perfectly ok with or without other dogs in the house. He also has shown ZERO interest in escaping my yard, digging, or fence jumping! Sometimes I check to make sure hes a real husky! But he is, and one that would be good for people with less breed experience as well.

      Breed: Norwegian Elkhound-Siberian Husky Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky / Norwegian Elkhound / 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 Spencer is a delightful husky mix (we think Norwegian Elk hound) who is about 3 years old and weighs 51 lbs. He has a gorgeous color coat and is very handsome and wise looking. Spencer is energetic and needs some training but he is a charming young man. He needs to be an only dog, as he loves people and does not want to share his human. This could possibly change once he gets a home and some training and feels secure that he wont be abandoned again. He will tolerate a crate but would prefer not to be in one. Spencer will make a great companion for a runner, or hiker where he can be active with his human. He is really a delightful chap looking for somewhere to hang his hat!

      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (medium 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 Rumor is GORGEOUS. Knows sit. NOT very food motivated. He is big and very strong. He was obviously loved and spoiled, but they forgot to include training in his early life, which is probably why he is in rescue. Working on teaching him to walk on leash, he wants to please, and learns quickly – but does need reminders. Rumor enjoys being with other dogs. At about 60 lbs and 1 ½ years old, he is a lot of spirit an energy! Rumor would be the ideal partner for a runner or active person, and has great potential. He will need daily exercise to burn off surplus energy, so can help keep you in shape! 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. 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 Brazen - This little girl (1 ½ yrs/45 lbs) is as cute as they get and very petite, with adorable stocky legs. Brazen is a fire cracker! - very energetic and excitable at first then calms down. She knows sit, and is very sweet and very friendly. Brazen was very good with the other "tester" dog (male), social and friendly. She is independent, very stubborn, acrobatic and super affable. She is also one of the happiest and most enthusiastic of dogs! Brazen’s story is that she ended up in a shelter because someone put their hand between two dogs to break up a fuss, and the human got bit. Brazen is not a good first husky due to her very high energy level, also not good with children under 12.

Jingle is about 1 year old and weighs 59 lbs, spayed and up to date on shots. Jingle knows sit, has a soft mouth, and enjoys her training. A typical husky, she can pull like a freight train so if you want a mushing dog, she could be your girl. Also extremely nice and friendly, and loves humans, however Jingle would do best as an only dog as she is reactive around other dogs. This is quite a handsome girl with her combination of husky with shepherd ears!

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 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?

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).

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.
