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.

      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 Deebo is about 4 years old and weighs about 62lbs. Deebo is a big lover and wants to be around his human. He is an incredibly sweet boy who loves to cuddle, lean up on you and become your new shadow. Deebo is a big walker! He loves longer walks and getting to go outside as much as possible. He is also a great adventure buddy as he loves car rides and likes to catch a quick nap in the backseat on the way to an adventure. Deebo loves people, lots of love and belly scratches. He lowers his head when you pet him and shows some submissive behavior to people. As he gets to know you he becomes very attached and loves to hop around, wrestle, and play. Deebo enjoyed the occasional treat, but he seems to love the praise of his human more than a tasty snack. He is going to make someone very happy sometime and will do well with someone who has lots of love and time to give him. For starters he will probably be best as an only dog but he has a lot of love to go around. He loves to walk and go for bursts of running so lots of activity will make him happy. Otherwise he loves his naps and cuddle time. Playing Deebo wasn't too interested in playing tug of war but did like his pink stuffed elephant. He brings his toys to his bed but doesn't seem too interested in them when it comes to chewing/playing. Deebo likes high speed chases and to play "catch me if you can" around the house. He showed no destructive behavior to the house other than enjoying to dig a bit on the bed or couch before getting settled for a nice nap! Deebo also loves to sleep with his human, but he gets grumpy if you move around in the night. I found the best place for him was a doggie bed at the foot of my bed to ensure everyone got a long and restful sleep. Potty Deebo needs a bit of help to know where the best place to go potty is. He likes to mark and sometimes pee inside but with careful watching, he started to learn that potty is an outdoor activity and frequent potty breaks was the way to go to avoid any accidents. I think he just needs a bit of careful watching here when he gets all settled and a bit of patience as he learns where the best potty spots are but then he will be perfect. Deebo does love to dig, especially when going potty. If you have a meticulously manicured yard, he may cause a bit of destruction so just know he is a digger and kicker after potty time. Other Dogs Deebo loves his human but is a bit unsure of other dogs. When walking, he wags his tail and is very interested to meet other dogs, but becomes a bit anxious when its time to sniff and get to know one another. He was able to meet a few husky's and get along with them, but other dogs whether big or small resulted in barking, teeth baring and was not allowed any closer. I think he wants to like other dogs, he just needs some security, patience, and training to become comfortable and happy in other doggies presence. 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.

Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area. Siberian Husky Meet Boris! Aka BoBo Boris just loves to be around people, loves having his head scratched and will slowly but surely climb into your lap. Boris knows sit, paw (he loves to give paw!) and is so so close on down - he will train on commands for as long as you want as long as treats are part of the deal! He is happy to meet other dogs, sniff and hang out but doesn't seem overly interested in raucous playtime so would be happy both with siblings or as a spoiled only child. Boris loves car rides and while he has the strength to pull, he is more of a slow, deliberate mover than your typical husky that jumps and zooms. He may have some akita in him with a big head and strong front shoulders but beautiful husky blue eyes.

She likes bathes if the water is warm or the sun is out and loves to be combed. Pabu loves any toy that squeaks and she love to play tug war with them. She does not like to sleep on doggie beds, she will use them as chew toys. She will howl to say hi to you at times, when you come home. Pabu likes to ride in cars with the window down for her to get air. She likes to roll on her back with her legs straight up. She is afraid of loud noise, especially fireworks-we put soft music for her and that helps her and fearful of vet only since she has only gone for shots. She loved her brother Memo, a black lab. She is used to having a dog around that she trusts. She may be very sad at first and looking for him because they have been together since Pabu was 4 months old. She has been spoiled and loved for all her life!

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: 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 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!

      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?
