Adopted! Lake Tahoe, Nevada - Itani (pronounced E-tahnee) is a sweet 3-year-old German Shepherd/mix female. Her name means Proud, and she is strong and graceful, and in good health. Itani is in a Foster home. Itani is affectionate, well behaved, walks nicely on leash and also off leash, knows lots of commands, and is not shy in the least. Her Foster Dad has been teaching her all kinds of tricks (she is a fast learner and he is using the clicker method). He's also taking her to dog classes where she is doing very well. She LOVES people, is ok with kids, but we are looking for a calm environment, preferably without children. She does not do well when left home alone, and he is working on short periods at a time with babysitting Kong in a crate, but Itani will be best in a home with someone who works at home or is around alot. Itani   likes to ride in the car, loves women and to hang out with you, so someone that can take her to work would be great! She would also like a submissive male canine companion to keep her company so she doesn't have to stay home alone. It is unknown how she is with cats.  
 
 
 
Adopted! - Lake Tahoe, NV - Orbit is a beautiful pup born May 1, 2011, who looks to be mostly White German Shepherd (not a purebred, he's cream colored). He is almost 7 months old now. When Orbit had gotten attacked by dogs as a puppy at 10 weeks old, his homeless owner turned him in to the shelter because he couldn't afford to pay for medical expenses (pup had severe bites on his face that were badly infected). Orbit is in good health now, completely healed. He's UTD on shots and dewormed. He must have been attacked numerous times as he was terribly afraid of other dogs. His Foster Mom is spending time rehabilitating and training Orbit and he is doing great. At 7 months old, he is a very big boy, but still a little uncertain with new dogs. He hikes off leash, but if he sees a strange dog down the trail, he will bolt. Once he meets the dogs, he loves to play, but more training is needed to help him overcome his fears so that an accident doesn't happen. Orbit knows some commands (Sit, Stay, Come, Wait, Leave It) - and he is housetrained. Orbit is very smart and well behaved if he is given adequate exercise and continued training. He needs a strong handler as he has a tendancy to want his own way. Best with someone who can spend a lot of time with him to continue his training, and who has a calm, friendly canine companion for Orbit to learn from.
 
 
 
  
Adopted! Frazier Mountain, CA - This is handsome Ziggy, a very submissive and beautiful Malamute/Husky pup, about 9 months old. He is brother to Bruce [below]. He is a bit mouthy, and extremely fearful of almost everything unusual. He will need an experienced and patient handler. He is known to be a bit of a digger, more of a hobby than an occupation. Ziggy will need good, secure escape-proof fencing. Ziggy is actually very gentle with young children but becomes mouthy and nippy when excited, so we don't really recommend a home with children. High prey drive with small animals, he would do best with an experienced, gentle and patient handler who can spend a lot of time with him. A work-at-home owner with good canine experience would be best for this shy boy. Escape-proof containment required.  
 
 
      
Adopted! Frazier Mountain, CA - Bruce is the beautiful Malamute/Husky brother of Ziggy [above]. He is 9 months old and will be neutered before adoption. He is not fully leash trained yet and needs some housetraining. Bruce is a bit fearful and very shy, but no food aggression. He loves to chase young children, so will not be adopted to families with small children. He's a very sweet boy and needs a person that is around alot. A work-at-home owner with good canine experience would be best for this shy boy. Escape-proof containment required.   
  
 
 
  
 
 
  
 
Adopted - Glendale, AZ - Coda is a gorgeous 4-year-old neutered male that looks to be German Shepherd/Malamute/Collie. This boy needs a big back yard with 6' fencing to play in, as he does not like to go for walks on leash (although he tolerates the leash for his baths). He does not do well with all male dogs, so needs a female companion to keep him company. Coda thinks he is a lapdog, is very playful and plays with his sisters all day. He does play rough, so needs large playmates! He doesn't mind human visitors as long as they respect him and let him approach them first, so he's not too shy. He's really a good boy, affectionate and a sweetheart. Unfortunately owner has 7 dogs (male rescues) and she has to keep Coda separated. This boy needs his own home with someone around a lot to help socialize Coda and teach him how to enjoy going for walks. He would love a submissive female companion to play with so he can get lots of exercise in his yard. Owner/rescuer is unemployed but cares so much for this sweet boy she will help with expenses to transport. If Coda goes into a Foster Home, expenses for food will be provided as well. They cannot keep him much longer, so time is of the essence. Please contact John at AlphaWolfguy@msn.com or Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com
 
 
 
Adopted! - El Campo, CA - Kiko is a sweet 1-year-old White German Shepherd/Husky who is a bit shy with strangers. He and his sister, Roca [below], were dumped off by their owner after poor Roca had puppies. They were selling the puppies and just wanted these two out ASAP. The pups are now in Foster and being cared for with a healthy diet and training. Roca is gaining weight (she was emaciated), and Kiko is now friendly and likes to go for walks on leash. They need homes very soon. Someone who is active and home alot would be best for these too, as they are very confused right now. We would like to adopt them together, but will separate to find them good homes.
  
Adopted! - Roca [below] is a very friendly girl, and looks to have received mostly German Shepherd genes, with the black and white coloring from the Husky. She is very beautiful! Roca looks like a longhaired German Shepherd. She will probably be walking off leash soon as she just loves to be with you. She is very people friendly. She is a little shy at times, and when she saw a cow, she slipped out of her collar and bolted - she ran straight home!
 
Both must be spayed/neutered before adoption. Please send Adoption Application if you are interested (in Documents). Please contact pamela Jo at PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com

 Roca - 1-year-old female
   
 
 
 
      
 
Adopted! Reno, NV - Max is a beautiful but shy 1 1/2 year-old Malamute/mix pup. Owner moved and he was dumped at the shelter. Max has been an only dog, outdoors in yard with not much socializing. He escapes from his 4' fence, but he is lanky and could probably scale 5-6' fencing if frightened in a strange place. He would need to be supervised until he acclimates, unless you have an escape-proof containment. He has been unsocialized so would need to be an only dog, or with a large, female canine companion. If you have other dogs, an experienced handler is necessary to help him socialize calmly and properly. He was very stressed and terrified at the shelter but is doing better in boarding kennel now and being socialized with other dogs. He is much more relaxed now and doing great! Max is underweight and needs some good food to fatten him up. We recommend a real-meat/holistic diet for all our rescues. He is young and will come around quickly in the right hands. Contact Pamela at (775) 833-2066 or email her at PamelaJowolflady@yahoo.com  
 
 
     
Adopted! New Brunsfelds, TX - 5-month-old Nikko is a very lucky puppy. He was rescued by a caring woman at 2 months of age. An abandoned stray, he was bloated with worms and dying from malnutrition. She nursed him back to health with a holistic approach and he is a healthy, happy puppy now... and striking! Nikko is German Shepherd/Husky, and has stunning blue eyes. He is up to date on shots. His Foster Mom cannot keep him any longer and now Nikko is ready to go to a forever loving home. Nikko would be best with someone that can spend time training this smart pup, as he will turn out to be a wonderful companion. Nikko is playful and affectionate and ready for his forever home! If you are interested in adopting Nikko, please contact Pamela at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com for an adoption application.
 
 
   
   
 
Yerrington, NV/Lake Tahoe area -Two beautiful "purebred" Native American Indian Dogs were dropped off at a shelter in January by their owner. They are well behaved and human friendly, and in good health. Dakota is a 5-yr-old spayed female, about 82 lbs, in good health, and very sociable. She is good with other dogs and likes to Sit for treats. She has no separation anxiety [a little at first while settling in], is very calm and affectionate. Chocktaw - a neutered male - is also 5 yrs old, larger and about 96 lbs. Both are friendly with humans. He gets a little excited when meeting new dogs, but has not shown any aggression toward them. He pulls on leash and so will need a strong and experienced handler as Chocktaw is a big strong boy, but he is presently working with a trainer and doing very good! Secure containment required with 6' fencing, and a home with lots of good daily exercise is just what these two beauties need. 
 
Chocktaw - [upper left]  Adopted!

He is not fully leash trained yet and needs some housetraining. Bruce is a bit fearful and very shy, but no food aggression. He loves to chase young children, so will not be adopted to families with small children. He's a very sweet boy and needs a person that is around alot. A work-at-home owner with good canine experience would be best for this shy boy. Escape-proof containment required. Wolfdog experience even better! Both Bruce and Ziggy are located in Frazier Mountain, CA. Please contact Matthew at wolf@lockwoodarc.org 
 
 
 
Owner has not responded and we don't know if these girls will wind up at a shelter.  Shadow and Brandy are two sweet girls that need a Foster or permanent home RIGHT AWAY! Their owner lost their home and they will be going to the shelter within days if they don't find placement. Shadow is the Black and Tan Shepherd. She is 6 years old. Brandy is lighter in color, mixed with Husky, and is 10 years old. Both girls are spayed, and current on vaccinations. They low-content wolfgirls, and are fine with small dogs, but a little dominant with large dogs - nothing that an experienced dog person couldn't handle. Brandy and Shadow walk very nice on leashes and do not pull at all. They are housetrained and do not try to escape. They will be separated if it means we can save their lives.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jasper
 
Adopted! Poway, CA (near San Diego) Jasper is a beautiful 3-year-old neutered male Malamute/GSD [German Shepherd Dog]. At 130 lbs. he is a big boy and would do best with a large, submissive canine companion, or as an only dog. He plays rough, and doesn't like to be challenged by dominant dogs. He is up to date on vaccinations and in good health. Jasper was an owner-surrender by a man who lost his home and job. He is in foster, but needs a permanent home as soon as possible. He did not have much training so Foster Mom has been working with him and he's responding very well. Jasper needs a strong and experienced handler who is around alot to spend quality training time with him and give him daily exercise. We request that the new adopter take him to doggy classes, as he is very smart and will do well. He will not be adopted into a household with small children, small dogs, or other male canines as he plays rough and can be aggressive with other males if they are dominant or challenge him. Classes will help to desensitize him and make him more sociable with other males. He likes to explore and is learning to come in, lie down and behave. He is housetrained. Outside there is slight digging but he's content to stay in a fenced yard. Jasper will sit, lie down, walk on leash. He loves his food and will steal from others so he should always be fed separately from other animals. He is very serious about his food but will sit for his dinner. Jasper loves to run so must be leashed at all times, but would be a great jogging companion. He has improved tremendously on leash but still needs to be reminded to settle down if he wants to investigate something. He loves attention, belly rubs, and to be loved on. Jasper enjoys being brushed. Someone who is home alot, a strong handler, and has experience with large northern breeds would be great for this boy. He is a real sweetheart, very affectionate, and in the right hands will make a wonderful companion. Please contact Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com

 

Adopted!  Wyla - So. California -Wyla was pulled from the Devore Shelter just hours before she was scheduled to be euthanized after waiting the mandatory five days for someone to claim her (she was a stray). She's about a year old, and one of the happiest dogs we've ever met, full of joy, and always doing things to make us smile. She loves people and children. She wants to please, and is a quick learner. We took her to a private trainer for two weeks for the basics. She is spayed, microchipped, and current on all shots. She loves her toys, and entertains herself by lying on her back while holding one of her babies in the air. She's very clean, and doesn't have a lot of the typical puppy habits like chewing on furniture. She knows the word "no" and usually listens the first time. She seems fine with most dogs on neutral territory and out on hikes, but we think it would be best for her to be in a home without other dogs as she likes to be the queen of the house! She is extremely urgent as her Foster home cannot keep her any longer and she is now being boarded again. It is expensive and very confusing for poor Wyla. Please help this sweet girl. Contact Jim and Keri LaMar  (951) 737-4009; (949) 525-3553 Keri cell   (949) 294-4993 Jim cell

Adopted! Killeen, TX Shelter - Thunder is a very elegant neutered male Malamute/mix [not a wolfdog] located in Killeen, TX. He was surrendered to the shelter - along with his companion Shadow Girl because the owners lost their home and had to move to a homeless shelter. Thunder is approximately 2 years old and has been at the shelter for months now. He is good with other dogs and kids of all ages. He has never been tested with cats. He is very friendly and playful, and has been great with everyone at the shelter. He and Shadow Girl have been at a No-Kill Shelter for almost a year now, and are being housed in a tiny, indoor cement-floor kennel, about 15' x 5' [together!]. Thunder really needs a loving home. He walks well on leash. Wonderful dog! Very loving. He knows some basic commands, sit, shake, lie down, roll over, etc. No medical issues. We would like to adopt Thunder with his companion Shadow Girl if possible as they are very bonded, but they will separate them if it means one will find a real home. 
 
   
 
New Mexico - Silver Bear ... Hello All...I am Stephanie Kaylan, the founder of the Wanagi Wolf Fund and Rescue in Tijeras, New Mexico, just outside Albuquerque. Silver Bear, a recent rescue from a hoarding situation in AZ, has special needs. Her numbers are not good for her liver enzymes, but yet she trots and jumps and plays and is happy. She is too old and too happy for invasive procedures. She will be on expensive meds for the rest of her life at $160 every month as well as a special diet with vitamins and herbs. I know we will all "go" one day...but in the mean time... this new rescue, Silver Bear is HAPPY with us in her new, forever home. Please contribute to WANAGI WOLF FUND & RESCUE. We really need your help now as we have other rescues as well. Donations may be made on-line thru PAYPAL via our website.. or sent to our PO BOX listed on the website.

Adopted! - Las Vegas, Nevada - these two beautiful puppies were born June 16, 2011 [pictured here at 9 weeks old]. Deja the female (bottom right), and Balto the male (upper left) are German Shepherd/mix, very smart, and are already working on housetraining. The mom was rescued pregnant at 8 months old, and is being kept by the Foster Mom, but these two pups need their own homes now and are ready to go. Someone that is home alot to keep up their training would be best, and with an active lifestyle and fun hikes every day when they get older - they will be large doggies. Look at those feet! If you are interested in giving a home to one of these beauties, please contact Pamela Jo at (775) 83-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com  Transportation help to the Lake Tahoe area is available.
  
 
 
    
Adopted! Lake Arrowhead, CA - Ryder - is a stunning black and white, 2-yr-old pure Husky male. He is presently in a Foster home, but needs a home soon! Poor Ryder lived in a small kennel at a vets office for over 6 weeks! Ryder's owner lost his home and so this sweet and well-mannered boy needs a new and loving home. He is  neutered and UTD on vaccinations. As a typical Husky, he is a bit of an escape artist when he gets bored, so he needs secure containment. Ryder would be best with someone around a lot as he really likes to have companionship and daily exercise. The pictures are of Ryder and his two new foster companions. His foster parents say: This dog LOVES people, is very sweet, and he gets so excited and vocal when he hears us come home. Ryder is very gentle when taking food from your hand. He is not food aggressive nor a picky eater. He has been very good in the house. No chewing or accidents, but we haven't left him in the house while we are gone. Secure containment required for those times when you are away. He is a bit dominant with new dogs and needs some dog classes for socialization. 
 
 
 
   
Adopted! Grass Valley, CA - Jake is a big, beautiful neutered male that looks to be Golden Retriever/German Shepherd. His owner is very ill and can no longer care for her beloved Jake and his female companion, Jesse [pictured below]. Jesse has been adopted and Jake is very lonely, so he needs a forever, loving homes. Adoption Application and Home Check required.   
 
 
 
 
 
  
Adopted by his Foster Dad! Roseville, CA - DOMINO is a Gorgeous Alaskan Husky 1 1/2-year-old neutered, male pup. Domino has beautiful blue eyes and a charming personality. He is a very good boy, playful, energetic, social with people and seems to be fine with the shelter dogs. Someone must have had a heavy hand with Domino as his boy is fearful (cowers) of raised hands and will cower to the ground with harsh tone of voice, so a patient and experienced handler would be great for him. He weighs 60 lbs. and has had bortadella vacs. at the shelter. He was adopted and returned because he jumped a 5' fence, but seems to be fine with 6' fencing. He is a typical energetic pup - jumps up when excited; pulls a little on leash when excited; but usually very respectful and should be easy to train. Domino has separation anxiety and would do best with someone who is around a lot. Domino would excel with doggy classes and would love a family that is active with hikes and training.
 
  
 
   
Lake Tahoe, Nevada - Itani (pronounced E-tahnee) is a sweet 3-year-old German Shepherd/mix female. Her name means Proud, and she is strong and graceful, and in good health. Itani is in a temporary Foster home. Itani is affectionate, well behaved, walks nicely on leash and also off leash, knows some commands, and is not shy in the least. Her Foster Dad has been teaching her all kinds of tricks (she is a fast learner and he is using the clicker method). He's also taking her to dog classes where she is doing very well. She LOVES people, is ok with kids, but we are looking for a calm environment, preferably without children. She does not do well when left home alone, and he is working on short periods at a time with babysitting Kong in a crate, but Itani will be best in a home with someone who works at home or is around alot. She likes to ride in the car, loves women and to hang with you, so someone that can take her to work would be great! She would love a male canine companion to keep her company so she doesn't have to stay home alone. Her Foster Dad can only keep her until July 27, so she needs a Permanent home ASAP with someone who can give her lots of love and attention. It is unknown how she is with cats. Please contact Pamela Jo at 775-833-2066  PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com   This sweet girl is very adoptable and time is of the essence!
 
 
 
 
   
Adopted  SoCal - Bella is only 9 months old and a very stunning girl! Bella weighs 44 lbs and has a gorgeous silvery coat. She is UTD on her vaccinations, has been recently spayed, and is in good health. She is great with other large dogs. Bella needs some leash training and would benefit from doggy classes while she is still young. Bella is very shy and fearful of most people, but is affectionate and will give kisses once she trusts you. She really needs an experienced home with someone around a lot to give her lots of attention and keep up with her socialization. Bella is great with women, very gentle, good with cats, and will need escape-proof containment with daily exercise.
 
 

 

Adopted! Zeus - He is one of the 9 recently UNchained "Stanley Dogs" here with us at New Mexico Dogs Deserve Better. Zeus had a very big day yesterday... his FIRSTout into the world. He visited his vet and rode around with me all day in the car, even had lunch at McDonalds! He went to the grooming salon where he will spend the next couple of days having the last FIVE years of neglect on a chain lovingly removed. It was initially determined that the only way to restore his coat would be to completely shave him but to our delight they did not have to shave him after all! Because his fur was so terribly matted & unattended for so many years, it is a job that will need to span a couple of days. He will soon be on his way to his new home with people that will shower him with love and affection, something he should have had since a puppy. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
Adopted! Grass Valley Shelter, CA - This sweet but very shy little 8-month-old Valentine looks to be mostly White German Shepherd even though she is only about 35 lbs. She is about the size of a 5-6 mo-old pup most likely due to starvation periods while she was growing. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations and tested heartworm negative. Valentine is good with all size dogs, but not good with cats. She was a feral dog living on some property owned by an irresponsible man that had several dogs, all of whom were not spayed or neutered. The man would feed the dogs for a month or so and then leave for 3-4 months. Valentine was born during one of his long times away. Animal Control heard that most of the dogs were starving and started trapping. They caught Valentine and her parents. Her parents had gotten to know people and were semi-social... Valentine didn't have much experience with humans so she was very scared when she first came to the shelter. We have worked with her for many months now and she has come around enough to let most people put a leash on her and she is making progress every day. Valentine needs a home where she is the only dog so she can bond with her person and get special attention, or have the companionship of a very social and calm dog to teach her how to trust. Whomever adopts Valentine should have some experience with feral or shy dogs. Valentine will need lot of patience and understanding, and would do best with someone that works at home, retired, or around alot. 6' fenced back yard with dig guard is required. She has been at the shelter a long time and is now ready for her own home. Please contact Kristina at kristina@sammiesfriends.org or Pamela Jo at PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com 
 
 
 
    
In Foster - needs permanent home Griz is a beautiful, VERY big neutered, male Malamute/low-content wolfdog. His owner kept him chained most of the time, but occasionally allowed him to roam the neighborhood to get his exercise but this got Griz into trouble and he was picked up by Animal Control. He needs a strong and very experienced handler. Contact Kim Kahl.
 
 
       Jax                               Rubi and Jax  Eowen 

Due to a nasty forest fire, the owner of these precious babies lost everything they owned on ten acres about a year ago. Now they need a home to avoid being sent to the shelter as the owners can no longer provide for them. Escape-proof fencing [6' with hotwire ok], and dig guards recommended. Ok in house while supervised, and can be great with more training. Some help with transportation available. Owner would love to find a Foster until she can take her babies back. If not, they are available for permanent placement. They are in Austin, TX. 
  Eowen is black and white, mid content mixed with Malamute. She's 9 years old and very friendly. Loves other dogs and wants to play with smaller animals...but will hold back because the eldest cat gave her hell. Loves kids and prefers female human companionship. Eowen is a little shy with strangers at first, but gets over it quickly. 
  Jax is a 5-yr-old male. Beautiful red wolf markings/malamute mix. Low-content. He too is shy of strangers, but is food motivated and will be your best friend for treats. He's very high energy and loves to go hiking, but he needs training in that area. Running is best with lots of strenuous hikes to tire him out. He' still a young boy!
  Rubi is the 3-yr-old offspring of Eowen and Jax. It was unplanned and all are altered now. Beautiful Rubi resembles her dad, only more grey. She is very people shy. Owner says "The only person she has ever let touch her is my 5 yr old. child. She shows me affection in her own way, but rarely gets close enough to touch, unless she touches with her nose. I'm hoping someone out there with the patience of a saint will find her and show her that it feels good to be loved. She's really very sweet, and not aggressive at all." Training classes are recommended for all to make an easier transition to their new homes. They are just north of Austin, TX. Contact owner Wendy at samourn_makare@yahoo.com .
 
 
 
 
Surprise, AZ - Gorgeous puppy Shasta needs a forever home! Shasta is only 4 1/2 months old and will be spayed, microchipped and UTD with shots upon adoption. She is a descendant of one of the White Fang babies that were in the movie. Shasta is very dog social, but shy of humans. It takes her a little while, but she warms up eventually if you are patient and knowledgeable about this breed. She has a long and luxurious coat and looks to be Husky/Malamute. Shasta will be a large dog as she is already as big as a Siberian adult. She is good with small dogs and puppies (already playing with Chihuahua pups), but she will need some obedience training to help her get over some of her shyness, and teach her how to be more social and relaxed in strange places. She is comfortable coming in and out of the house at will. Shasta should have secure escape-proof containment, plenty of exercise, and a human that can spend lots of time showering her with love and attention. 
 
 
 
Owner keeping! SoCal - Kodiak is only 9 months old and just look at that sweet face - indeed! He is great with other large dogs, needs a little leash training and would benefit from doggy classes while he is still young. Kodiak is sweet and affectionate and really needs a home with someone around alot to give him love and attention and keep up with his training. He is energetic and playful, yet with daily exercise he is calm and well behaved indoors. Kodiak will need secure containment, and will be neutered upon adoption.

DALLAS, TX area - SOLSTICE is a beautiful, 2-year-old spayed female with one blue eye and one brown eye. She is very striking with colors that are silvery and beautiful as she is growing in a thick new coat after being shaved for the hot weather. She was transferred from Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue, and is now fostered by TX Husky Rescue. Her Foster Mom has a lot of experience with shy dogs, so Solstice is learning to be social and comfortable in new and strange surroundings. Solstice is typical Siberian size, about 50 lbs. She came into Rescue very shy and fearful as she was not properly socialized while she was growing up. She lived with her family and pack of dogs and cats, but didn't get out much. She loves other dogs and is very playful, and loves her new companions, and as she gets rehabilitated she has much more self confidence. She has a little separation anxiety and would be best with someone around a lot, that can spend time taking her everywhere with them - she loves to be with you. Solstice is very well behaved in the house, is calm, and likes to be in the same room with her family. She is crate trained, walks well on the leash and is in good health. She is very sweet and would love a forever home in a calm environment, with someone experienced with shy dogs. Daily exercise and secure containment are recommended to keep this girl safe and happy!

Adopted Sacramento, CA - Meet Sam, a very pretty intact, 1-year-old mid/low-content Wolfdog. He was being held in the Downtown San Francisco shelter. This boy needs an experienced foster or home. He is unsocialized, skittish but not known to have any aggression [neither food nor fear aggression]. He warms to
    
people he knows in a few hours, but is much in need of behavior modification. Its not too late for him to be rehabilitated into an awesome companion, but it will take a lot of work and patience, for which the rewards are enormous. Sam is looking for someone who will earn his love. Sam needs to be neutered before adoption. Wolfdog experience and escape-proof containment required.
 
 
 
 
 
   
Adopted! Pauls Valley, OK - Graceful and slender, Montana is a real sweetheart. This 1-2 year old neutered Low-content wolfboy was dropped off at the shelter by his owner in June, 2010. He had been living in a tiny kennel at the shelter ever since! Thats a year at the shelter! Montana is tall, weighs about 70 lbs. (could use some fattening up) and is up-to-date on his vaccinations. He is well mannered and walks nicely on leash, and is good with other dogs - large and small. Montana is very afectionate and docile yet is playful and energetic. He needs a secure yard with 6' fencing and dig guard. He is shy at first with strangers, but warms up quickly if they are gentle and patient. He is ok with children but would be best in a home that is peaceful yet has an active lifestyle. It is unknown how he is with cats. PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
   
Adopted! Pahrump, NV - Geronimo is a very big and beautiful White GSD/Malamute boy who has lost his home - twice! His first owner had Mo and his sister for 3 years.  The owner died in her home and Mo and his sister were there for a week until Animal Control took them away. It was very sad. The second owner loves Geronimo very much, but after sharing her home with him and her eight children for 7 years, she recently lost her home to foreclosure. She would love to have him back but won't be able to until at least another 8 months, so we are looking for either a Foster or Permanent home for this sweet boy. Geronimo is usually sociable with kids, cats and other dogs and has a good disposition, but is very stressed in his Foster Home of only 2 weeks. They have him chained to a dog house and are feeding commercial pet food, which is making him cranky. He is very unhappy. Geronimo has mild hip dysplasia, and is being treated with some natural supplements. He is in good health otherwise. He has a good personality - loves walks, playing, meeting people and other animals. He loves riding in the car and would make a nice hiking buddy for short hikes but frequent hikes. Will protect food by standing over his bowl but an easy fix with an experienced handler. Geronimo needs sturdy fencing (9 gauge) as he can easily tear up flimsy horse fencing. 6' fencing should keep him contained, with dig guard. Geronimo would probably be best as an only dog or with a large female canine companion. An experienced handler who has time to give this boy love and attention would be the best thing for Geronimo, as he misses his family very much.

Adopted! Livermore, CA - Wolfie. This handsome young boy is only 1-1/2 yrs old, neutered and sweet-natured. His unsuspecting owner bought him from a breeder with the intentions of giving him a loving home, only to find out he is too energetic for them and quite a handful. Wolfie is mostly Malamute/Husky with one blue eye. He's friendly and plays well with large dogs, but is too rough with smaller dogs. He will not be adopted to a home with cats either. He walks beautifully on leash, and is housetrained. This pup is not ready to be left home [indoors] alone unattended as he will still chew, but he is fine when you are around to correct him gently. If left in the yard (6' fencing OK) he is great if he has another canine companion. He digs for fun, not for escape, and can jump a 5' fence easily when playing, so 6' fencing is required for this boy. We also recommend a dig guard. He will Sit and Lie Down on command, and loves fetching the ball. He is submissive with other dominant dogs since he is still a pup, and would also be good if he had a young, playful large canine companion. He is very shy with men. Wolfie is best with grown kids as he will get excited when playing with little ones and gets nippy. He is a little mouthy and needs some training with this. Wolfie howls when left alone so best with a human that works at home or can take with. He does not like to be crated. He needs a well-balanced real-meat diet, and some training with a little food guarding. He is very tall, and towers over other large dogs. This beautiful pup would be best with someone with wolfdog experience, a gentle but dominant handler, and someone with a lot of time to help him blossom into the great companion that he can be.

 
 
     
Adopted! Susanville, CA Shelter - Miya - This beautiful 2-year-old Malamute/GSD female was never claimed by her owner - even after a few notices - and left to be euthanized. Pretty Miya is up-to-date on some of her shots, is friendly, and seems to be good with other dogs in the shelter. She walks nicely on leash and seems to be housetrained. This girl seems very adoptable and needs a forever loving home. She would be best with a male canine companion, and someone who can spend time taking her for hikes and giving her some love and attention. Someone who works at home or can take with would be great for this pretty girl. 6' fencing is recommended. Miya will be spayed before adoption.  
 

 
   
Adopted! Los Banos (near Merced) CA - Three Beautiful Husky Puppies! Two males, one female. They were born on March 17, 2011. The owners were told that the mother was spayed. They have had her for about 2 years and she never got pregnant, until now. The puppies are very friendly and sweet. Like any other puppy they are destroying the yard. These puppies need someone around alot to train them and teach them to be well-behaved companions.  
 
 
 
   
   
Adopted! Lake Tahoe/Las Vegas, Nevada - Wolfie - This big, beautiful White Malamute/German Shepherd was owned by a man who was incapable of caring for him. Wolfie would sit outdoors in the 100-degree weather during the day; or left indoors in a tiny condo; or would ride in the bed of a hot truck with a drunken driver. Wolfie is a sweet 3-yr-old neutered boy who really needs someone to care for him. Wolfie is very friendly with adults and children alike, and loves to play with other dogs too. He is a large boy at 100 lbs., and due to not getting the proper exercise when he was young, Wolfie had some weakness in his hind legs and knees. Wolfie has been in a Foster Home in Las Vegas with an experienced handler and Naturopath Doctor. He has received good food and training, acupuncture, chiropractic and physical therapy. He has gained lots of strength and stamina and is doing fabulous. 
 
 
 
        
Adopted! Sacramento Valley, CA - Kizer is a beautiful 5-year-old neutered male German Shepherd.  He is a Long-Haired Shepherd and weighs about 100 lbs. His owner has died and Kizer and Roxie are still living in their house - alone. They are being taken care of by a wonderful woman who goes over and feeds and walks them. He is very loveable and likes to play fetch with his toys, walks well on a leash, and is excellent while being groomed. He has not had any formal training but would do well with some. Kizer is a big loveabe guy and has lived with another dog [Roxie a female Husky mix shown above] his whole life, so he would do well with other dogs. If someone would like to adopt them both, that would be wonderful, but we will separate to find good homes. 
 
 
 
 
 

Adopted! Sacramento Valley, CA - Jack is an approx 2-yr-old neutered male GSD [may have a little Husky too], who is very affectionate and energetic. Jack is outgoing with most strangers and likes to be handled once he gets to know you. He has a child-friendly temperament, and takes treats gently from hand. Jack is great with other dogs - very playful and somewhat submissive. He likes to be chased rather than do the chasing. Don't know how Jack is with cats, but my hunch is that he's way too physical for them. Jack is a very large dog - tall, muscular, strong and athletic. Probably weighs about 75 lbs. He runs gracefully and could be a great jogging companion. Jack is housetrained and very calm indoors. He walks surprisingly well on a leash, and is non-reactive towards other dogs and people when on leash. He seems to be a fast learner, but is very sensitive to correction or loud commands, so needs a soft-voiced guardian that is gentle yet consistent. If treated harshly he will shy away, so Jack needs a leader who understands his sweet nature. Jack's former owners raised him from a pup. However, Jack eventually became too rambunctious for their kids, so they ended up keeping him in the backyard with very little interaction. GSRSV offered to board Jack while seeking him a home and socializing him with the other dogs here. And that's how Jack ended up here at GSRSV since December!

Adopted! Reno, NV - Sequoia is a magnificent, sweet, 8 y/o neutered Malamute/Husky boy who is losing his home. His owners have divorced and neither can keep him. Time is of the essence as he may wind up going to the shelter, and very soon! Sequoia is housetrained, loves kids, other dogs (even the little ones), and likes to go for hikes. He is well behaved both in and outdoors. Sequoia does like to dig, so needs an escape-proof enclosure. He would be best with someone around a lot, retired, or can take to work as he just loves being with people. He is a big boy, about 100 lbs. Sequoia needs a permanent home as soon as possible - we don't want him to wind up at a shelter!

Adopted! Blythe, CA - Koda - Beautiful young white female White German Shepherd/Husky, about 2-3 years old, is in need of immediate Foster or permanent home. She was a stray, and is being Fostered at a ranch to keep her safe, but needs to get into a home ASAP. Koda is very friendly with her foster mom, and even rides in her golf cart around the ranch.
