  • German Shepherd Dog-Husky Mix Dog For Adoption in Fairbanks, AK, USA

    ROCKY

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Husky Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). 04/27/19 07:47 Rocky was surrendered by his owners because he was not doing well with the children in the household, trying to herd them and nipping them when he got overexcited. Rocky's owners were having trouble with training, energy level, impulse control and housebreaking- not unexpected issues in an active 5 month old. Rocky will need to go to a home that is dedicated to working with him and will take him to puppy classes where he can learn to be a canine good citizen, and continue training at home in a consistent and positive manner. Rocky throws temper tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants! He will shriek like a bird, and his new owner will simply need to remind him calmly and persistently that he does not get to have his way when he behaves poorly, and redirect him to an appropriate behavior. Rocky is a smart and loving boy who wants to please; he just needs to know how to do so! Rocky's owners complained that he would pee in the house even after being outside for hours- he may do better with structured, leash walked potty times so that he can begin to associate the outdoors with an appropriate place to potty rather just play time. Rocky's owners stated that he will hump his own face when he gets excited- at 5 months, Rocky is sexually maturing and will exhibit some intact boy behaviors that should be reduced by his recent neutering! Rocky is said to like children but he plays too rough with them, pushing them over, licking them and nipping at them when he gets overstimulated. As such, Rocky must go to a home without children under 12 years of age. Rocky is far too rough with cats and cannot control himself around them and will chase and may unintentionally injure them. Rocky does play well with dogs although he tends to play roughly, which may not be appreciated by all dogs. Rocky may be skittish around new adults and will bark and run away. Socializing Rocky regularly to new people and new places will help Rocky become more confident as he gets older. Rocky rides well in a car but can be destructive when left to his own devices. Kennel training Rocky may be a valuable tool for keeping him honest when he needs to be left alone. If you are looking for a clever boy that is willing to learn anything you ask, visit with Rocky today!

    GRAHAM

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Husky Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Husky / Mixed (short coat). UPDATE: Graham was returned to the shelter after a few weeks in his new home. Graham attacked the other dog in a unprovoked manner. The owners mentioned Graham had been getting increasingly possesive over toys and people towards the other dog. However they also noted how affectionate Graham is with people and strangers! While at the shelter Graham was temp tested and did well overall, although he can be overenthusiastic when greeting people (we will require he go to a home without small humans under 5 years), and can be stiff and tense when greeting some dogs, males moreso than females, so we are requiring he go to a home without other dogs. Graham should go to a home without small cats/small critters as we do not know if he has ever met cats and may chase and injure them. Graham may benefit from a basic obedience class in which he can bond with his new family, fine tune his manners, and practice socializing appropriately with other dogs. If you are looking for a cuddle bug and adventure buddy Graham is your guy! Graham was brought to the shelter as a stray and never claimed, so not much is known about him. While at the shelter, Graham has been shy but loving, behaving nicely with his animal tenders and appropriately with his canine neighbors. Graham has kept his kennel clean and walks well on a leash. Mutual visits with any other dogs in the home are always encouraged to help ensure that Graham is a good fit, and we suggest bringing all family members down to meet him as well, since we do not know if he has ever lived with children. It is unknown how Graham does with smaller pets such as cats and pocket pets, so caution should be used if introducing him to either. Graham is a sweet and gentle boy who can't wait to find his forever home.

    SVEN

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Husky (medium coat). Sven was surrendered to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. Sven is a friendly guy who needs some work on his basic obedience and house manners. Unfortunately he has spent long enough time in a kennel that he wasn't able to hold it and is used to having accidents. This can making house training very difficult but with patience and positivity Sven will get it! Sven has been friendly with his animal tenders but has been a bit naughty with his male canine neighbors so we are requiring that Sven meet any of his new canine family members!

    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Husky (medium coat). 03/07/19 *Butter was brought to the shelter because her owner had too many sled dogs and was unable to continue housing them all. She is used to running on a 6-dog or 10-dog mushing team. She would love to have a new family that is active in mushing or runs long distance skijor teams. It is unknown the distances she is used to running, but she does love to run. *Butter is shy but will seek affection from people if they are soft and affectionate with her. She came in with two other dogs that she is used to running with named *Peanut & *Jelly so if you are looking for more than one dog to join your team, please inquire about them.

    KHUMBA

    rescue
    Breed: Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Husky (medium coat). Namche and Khumba were surrendered to the shelter because they were not working out in their owner's team, preferring to trot at speeds they ran at and not working as hard as expected. The owner believes that they may be more suited for a recreational team that travels less than 17mph or in a distance trotting team. Both boys can be a bit growly around other males; they will be neutered at the shelter so this may resolve some of that behavior, or they may need to be placed in a primarily female team or at least away from other males.
