Description

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. 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.

Siberian Husky

Image (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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
