Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (medium coat). 18624 - These two may not be robbing banks anytime soon, but they will sure steal your heart! Bonnie (18625) and Clyde are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. No ifs ands or buts about it! These two are great together, but not fans of other dogs. This dynamic duo is looking for a home that has recent husky experience. Bonnie and Clyde are a little nervous here at the shelter but once they get to know you they will calm down pretty quickly. Due to their shy personalities, B&C need a home with children 14 years or older, and no cats! ***Accepting applications.

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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 24267 - Gloria came in extremely thin and not taken care of. She is on her way to a healthy weight and is ready to find a home! She is a senior girl who still has spunk left in her! She loves playing with toys and going for walks, but loves just hanging out too! Gloria would do best in a home with kids over 8 years because she may have potential to guard food. She is also not very fond of other dogs. We're not sure how Gloria ended up in the wrong hands, but thankfully she found her way here and she is now ready to spend her golden years in a loving, new home!

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). You might remember Evie from a few months ago. She was returned here because her new owners couldn't take her with when they moved. She is an awesome dog who is looking for her forever home to live out her golden years. She is dog selective and they have to be her size. She is housebroken and doesn't need to be crated when you are not home(if she is the only pet). She can get uncomfortable when kids are playing with her ears and tail, so she would do best with kids over 8 yrs. She is going to need a high quality, grain free diet and regular vet visits to keep her skin allergies under control and to check for mammary masses.
