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.

      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 – you can call me Panda! I LOVE people! I am a bi-eyed beauty with 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. If you have questions about Panda or would like to adopt her contact Norsled or her foster at christianad@sbcglobal.net.

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Hi, my name is Junebug, and I am about to steal your heart. I have amazing blue eyes, and a beautiful white coat, with black outlined ears, and black mascara-like markings around my eyes. I ride well in the car, but could use leash training. I do sing on occasion, which is rather surprising, since I am deaf. Keep in mind, many dogs have learned sign language! I am good with dogs my own size, not good with cats or small animals. I came into rescue with heartworm, but that has been treated and I have a clean bill of health.

      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 My name is Ocean, and I am one giant kissing machine! With Paul Newman blue-eyes and a wooly white coat, what’s not to love? The trainer says I am smart – I learned how to walk on a leash, sit, and was working on “down” in my first training session. It was obvious I wanted to please everyone! I still need more training. At 70 lbs, I am big and strong, so probably someone who has husky or malamute experience would be best for my forever home. I am a little reserved at first, but warm up quickly.

Well, I am smart for a husky! Most of the time I am a calm, sweet, lovely girl. I love playing with other dogs, and finding new toys, even if they are buckets, slippers or plastic containers. However I am a true escape artist – give me half a chance and I will slip through the gate, and I can jump a 6 foot fence. I will need an owner smart enough to outfox me! Also, I have a very high prey drive, so cannot be around livestock or small animals.

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Hi, my name is Purple Rain – got that name due to wearing a purple collar when I came into rescue (the color ran into my fur, so I have a bit of a purple neck right now – quite fashionable, I think. I am a bi-eyed German Shep/Husky mix, 13 months young. I like other dogs, and am fine spending time in my crate. I do like to talk! – but don’t most girls? My short coat means I don’t shed that much. Like most huskies, I am not good with cats or small animals. Purple Rain is a stunning husky german shepherd mix. She is 13 months old and weighs currently 40 lbs.

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. 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.

Our trainer fell in love with him immediately and said he is confident, social, willing, and non-reactive to the environment on his walk. He walked nicely on the training collar when out for a walk and he knows sit and shakes both paws. He is a very happy dog and just radiates enthusiasm. We think he would be a great addition to a family with older children (teenagers).

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Walnut Creek, CA
      Posted Breed: 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 Jayu is a very very special and unique girl. Born into captivity in a Korean dog meat factory in 2015, she was destined for something horrible before being rescued by Humane Society International in late 2015, then sent to San Francisco where NorSled claimed her. Factory 5 in the Wonju Province was a puppy mill and dog meat farm. All dogs were rescued, many purebreds, and Jayu herself is a Husky and Korean Jindo mix. She's on the small side, with beautiful redwood colored fur, piercing blue eyes, and such a silly mischievous smile! I have fostered her since Norsled pulled her in June of 2016. She came to me feral and I have spent a lot of time with her, a lot of love, and we've made so much progress! She does need a very special home that will understand her and be willing to continue to work with her. She has come so far! She knows and responds to her name, goes outside AND inside upon command, and is potty trained for outside. Jayu also LOVES kids- my 9-year-old son was the first human she kind of bonded with- and she would best go to a home with gentle respectful kids to bond with. She absolutely needs other dog(s) in her furever home. My huskies love her energetic play and having other young dogs to play with really helps her come out of her shell. They play so crazy and cute! Jayu is, and may not ever be, a super cuddly or affectionate girl. At a year and a half old there is still plenty of time, but her future home will need to be ok with this. However, she loves to hang out near you! Follows me in the yard, almost always wants to be close, sleep on a dog bed a few feet away, and loves laying at my feet and even turns over for tummy foot pets! She has a distrust of hands that im still working on, and seems to be her biggest hurdle. Recently she licked peanut butter off a finger and that was huge! Jayu has always been sweet and submissive, never aggressive, and her issue with hands she just backs away. Though often im able to give her head scratches and pets when she's not looking, and she leans into these and loves them! She makes a fuss about running if you try to pet her but she lets herself get caught and then pets, brushing, nail trims etc happen easily. Jayu has had some training on a harness but needs a lot more. Eventually she may be able to be walked but her furever home will have to bridge these final gaps to earn her trust fully, which is very close to happening. She will be a wonderful cute and funny girl to the right home, and she has so much more potential, if you give fully to her she will give back to you and you won't regret it! More on Jayu on her pwn Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/JayusJourney/?

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!!
