Posted Breed: Siberian Husky / Alaskan Malamute / Mixed (short coat). Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions. Siberian Husky NTERVIEW WITH AKIRA!! Hi everyone! I'm Akira and I want you to be my human!! I am about 2 - 3 years old and am looking for my forever home. I love all people and I especially like having my belly rubbed. While I would love to have human brothers and sisters to play with, I would like to be the only dog in the house. While, like all dogs and people, I love food, I am very respectful of your food and know "No", "leave it" and am great with "drop it". If you're snacking at the coffee table I will come up and sniff but if you tell me it's not for me, I'll just lay down nearby to hang out with you! I am also a great buddy for a meal and a night out on the town! I love just hanging out with my people, riding in the car and going on adventures. I am very polite sitting/laying underneath tables on patios at restaurants (and charming everyone around into petting me!) Like I said before, I LOVE all people! If you sit on the floor, I will dive into your lap to have my belly rubbed. Because of my classic husky good looks, people stop me all the time to pet me and it's my favorite! I am very gentle with kids of all ages and am super tolerant of being grabbed or even picked up. I also know "sit" and "shake", have almost mastered "down" and could learn so much more! I am very good at sitting at intersections and only crossing the street when you say it's time. More importantly, I am trained to lick your face if you make kissy noises! .I do get defensive around other dogs but I feel much better if I know my human is looking out for me. It may take some time and trust but with some socialization training I could definitely become more comfortable with your help! I sleep in my crate now but if you're cool with it I would love to sleep nearer to my people. I am potty trained but I do not bark or howl (about anything, really) so when I start pacing near the door it means it's walk time! I would love to be part of your family! If you want to meet me too please contact rescuenorsled 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 rescuenorsled.

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.

Athena loves to give kisses and is a really special girl. Athena is a typical alpha female malamute. She may get along with a male but definitely not a female.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Siberian Husky / Mixed (short coat). Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions. Siberian Husky I am NOT for the faint of heart and if you are opinionated and like things done your way, then I am not for you also. That’s because I am very strong willed and strong in strength so I WILL get my way! I do not share the opinions of many of my fellow species so I would rather not have to share a house with another dog and have to listen to them yap all day long. I am a husky/shepherd mix so that makes me really smart! I bet there is nothing you can’t teach me if I am motivated. I am very loyal though to humans and when I have adopted a human, I will love you forever and will be very good at keeping you company. I do need to go hiking, running or pulling you on a bike or sled as I am very energetic and as I said earlier very strong. I need my daily exercise to keep me in shape. My waistline is very important to me. I am quite a charmer and I am told frequently how special I am. I try to down play my compliments as I get a bit bashful over the glowing remarks. I hope to adopt a human soon. If you qualify please send in an application so I can interview you. Thanks see you soon Belle!

      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. Siberian Husky Here's what Cybil's foster mom has to say: Cybil is a great babe! She loves to puppy play. I'm not sure how much puppy play she had in the past but she's quick to learn what my boys do not like (humping is one!). She's very playful with my dominant dog and is mostly indifferent about my submissive Jasper. She's great around other dogs too. She was around a very fat husky and a spaz of a lab mix last week. The husky was a typical rough husky player which she didn't care for after a few rounds. Her tail was tucked under and she bared her teeth at him. I have not seen her lunge, growl or ever use her teeth. She rough husky plays with my Stetson (3 years old) until he tires out. Cybil has been around a lot of humans! She's a little slow to warm up to kids (under 8?) behaving erratically or petting her without a proper greeting. Great around older and disabled (lady with a cane) folks. She sleeps in her crate for a solid 8 hours, crates herself sometimes during the day, eats like a champ, fetches and loves to play. I exercise her before our morning hilly walk in the morning. She gets a walk at night too. Cybil is a chewer and can take care of a no-hide bone in 30 minutes!! Cybil does come to us for affection and will cuddle. Loves head scratches and all that good stuff.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (short coat). Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions. Siberian Husky Ellis is a bachelor who is looking for companionship. He loves to be around people and would want to be cuddled up next to you when you are at home. Ellis does love his walks, hikes running you name it, he is an outdoors kinda guy when he is not cuddling. Ellis is young at about 3-4 years old and is a goofy guy who loves to get belly rubs and play with toys. He may even entertain you with his silly ways and put a big smile on your face. Ellis may need a little training on etiquette as his manners are a little lacking at times. He means well but his parents obviously did not put to much effort in his training when he was a youngster. He is smart so he can learn quickly. Ellis hopes to find a companion soon as he is rather lonely and is in need of his daily cuddling!

Siberian Husky Ansel -This little charmer knows he's got it and is not afraid to flaunt it. Ansel seeks a mature and experienced new owner who can meet his every need and spoil him beyond his wildest dreams. Ansel would be happy to share a queen size bed with you but his preference is King size. He would love to hang out with your friends as long as they don’t bring their rug rats. He has to be the supreme King of the house. No sharing with other mutts. At 2 years young, Ansel is working on a career of being a really spoilt and catered too young guy. He expects daily walks, hikes and will also agree to do a little running. He will love you unconditionally and lather you in kisses just so you know you are loved. Ansel does not like to mingle with other dogs so please no dog parks. He wants to be numero uno. I might add he is a very loveable, charming and extremely handsome young man. So if you can meet his requirements, please come see him.

Siberian Husky McKenzie is just a little over a year old and full of energy to burn. She would be best as a second or third pup as she has had brothers and sisters all her life and loves to play. She is a great kisser and will clean up any mess quicker than any other dog around. She will also keep you warm on a cold day as she enjoys cuddling. She loves to run and play at the dog park and is pretty good at recall, but there is room for improvement. She also hasn’t had much leash training so she can use some help there as well.

      Breed: Siberian Husky
      Sex: Male Male
      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. Siberian Husky Raven is 2-3 years old and despite being horribly neglected and having a rough start in life he is an extremely loving and affectionate boy and is ready to start his next chapter in life with you. When Raven arrived to Norsled, he had almost lost all his hair due to suffering from a severe case of demodox. He was also extremely malnourished and only skin and bones. But, this resilient boy has made a huge transformation and is not jaded one bit by his past. He is not bashful and warms up quickly to loving attention. He is quite the cuddle bug and likes to give hugs to show you how much he appreciates you. He still needs some basic training with manners, but is very motivated to please you and will learn quickly for food rewards. Raven is just a sweet, happy, big goofball and would love nothing more than to spend his time hanging out with you whether that be at home, going for walks, jogging, hiking or exploring the world with you to see all that it has to offer.

Siberian Husky Demon at a little over year old is on the skinny side at about 70 lbs. He has gorgeous bi-eyes with eyeliner that most women would die for. He looks very regal. Demon is a digger if he is bored so a companion would be good for him to play with. Demon needs training but once he has greeted you and gotten the excitement out of the way he does calm down a bit. Demon is very strong so he will need someone who can handle his power and keep him under control. He is potty trained and loves people and having human companionship. Demon is just one great dog who just needs some guidance.

      rescue
      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. Siberian Husky Claire's a very sweet, gentle, 5-year old, 50-pound, female, Siberian Husky with two ice-blue eyes and three freckles on her nose. She came to NorSled as an animal cruelty victim who'd never been allowed inside, even during prolonged 105 degree heat, lived in filthy conditions, had enough blown coat to create a plethora of Chihuahuas and not enough food to keep her at a good weight of 55-60 pounds. She preferred to stay just out of reach of her humans and definitely needed to be on lead to catch her, but once on lead, was gentle and don't pull. And just turn on the sprinklers to watch her go crazy playing. She preferred to go potty outside, learned how to use the doggie door quickly, so could be allowed to stay indoors during the day, and got along well with four other furry companions; a Pug, two Terriers and a Chihuahua. At the time of her rescue, NorSled had Claire fully vetted, including spay, shots, heartworm testing and microchip. Update: 08/28 -- Claire's personality has come alive. She wants to be with her humans and will curl up on the floor to be next to them. If it's evening and you're sitting on the couch or chair, she'll come over for hugs and petting (although she still comes on her own terms). She's remains sensitive about petting her sides, but that only involves her pulling away and is lessening as time goes on. She's learned that treats are for fun, waits for her share and now eats when her humans are in the room. Although she still loves playing with the other small dogs in the home, she'd definitely like a larger friend to run and play with and would make a fantastic jogging companion. To learn more about how to foster or adopt any of our current, awesome, NorSled family, contact please NorSled at RescueNorSled or call 800-471-5822. For more information on how to adopt Claire, contact her foster mom at ofkiltratt or call 530-701-6711.
