Extremely URGENT - WILL BE PTS 7/20 - Los Banos, CA shelter - #2015-1314 Unaltered [will be neutered if adopted], handsome male, Husky or Malamute. This rambunctious boy came in on the 4th of July. He's certainly a beautiful creature with few manners. After a few lessons from me, he willfully sat for a brief picture. "Briefly"is the operative word. He spent his yard time lounging in our pool keeping cool. He gets along with female dogs – I don’t believe we tested him with males yet.  Friendly, though can try to be a tad dominant at times to get his way. He is around 2 yrs. old. We thought we had him adopted but it fell through. He will be put down after the ACO gets back tomorrow (Monday, 7-20) if we don't find a home for him. His owner stated he was a wolfdog but we feel he is a Malamute mix. Please help this boy. For more information, contact Laureal at Los Banos Volunteers for Animals at 209-617-2008 or rescuelaurel@earthlink.net
 
 
 
 
 
VENICE, CALIFORNIA  **Meet most beautiful Bella -  up for
Ms Bella is somewhere around 3 years old, UTD on vaccinations  and spayed. She was a stray intake in shelter. She is a VERY sweet, quiet girl. Bella is a little nervous, shy and suspicious of strangers but once she warms up she wants you to hold her paw or will rest her paws on your lap. She is happy to go to her crate for security and lie quietly by your side. She has a beautiful coat, eyes, and is about 65lbs. She does well with other dogs (including small dogs and females) but prefers not to engage in play or antics, content to watch from the sidelines. Bella will do best in a calm, quiet adult home. An active, busy household with small children is not a good fit for her. She is content with nice, slow leisurely walks and doesn’t need a particularly active (running, hiking) lifestyle. Bella can be a bit skittish and jumpy, and will need to always be on secure collar/harness. Secure, esacpe proof fencing, home check and application apply. Bella will only be adopted out to a home on the West Coast, preferably California or Nevada (Sierras). Oregon and Washington will be considered for the right family. For an application or more information contact jenniferreitman@gmail.com
 
 
 
 
Very Urgent! Everette, WA - Max is a gorgeous Husky/Malamute mix who will be 2 years old in February and is currently in jail where his new owners just dumped him because he killed a kitty. This is why we do not adopt northern breeds into homes with cats, small dogs or other small animals. They can be amazing companions for the right person who is active outdoors and around a lot to give them the care and training they all need. He was originally surrendered into Rescue because he is a bit of an escape artist and his owners were not able to keep him contained on their property. During one of his escapades he got injured and is now almost blind in one eye. This does not seem to bother him at all, and he is still very handsome. Only when you look close can you see a bit of cloudiness in his eye.
Max is a little shy at first, but becomes a very sweet playful boy with a lot of Husky-energy once he gets to know you. He needs a house with a big yard and secure 6-7 foot fencing. Max is very good with other dogs and would do best with a buddy. He has been living with cats in his foster home and has shown no interest in them until this recent incident, so now will not be adopted into a home with cats. He had made fast friends with his doggie-housemates but now in a shelter is in danger of being killed. Max would do best with a woman, since he is frightened of men. He is very smart and sensitive, so he could probably learn to get along with a man who is calm and very patient, but it will take time. Due to his fear of men, he would not be good in dog parks. Max is looking for a home where he can feel safe and loved. As long as he gets enough exercise and feels no need to escape, he will be a wonderful and fun family member. 
Max has not been exposed to small children during his time in foster.
Max is neutered and all his shots are up-to-date. Please contact Kim for an Adoption Application at KimKahl@dukewarner.com  Transportation help is available. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!
 
 
 
 
 
Urgent - California - Ducky is currently in a foster home in San Francisco, but will soon be transported to southern California. She is a real sweetheart and very beautiful at about 4-5 years old she weighs 88 lbs. and is 29" at the shoulder. Poor Ducky was living on a tie out for the past year and a half. Prior to that she was terribly neglected and relegated to eating trash to survive. Now she bonds so quickly to people she hates to be separated. Her separation anxiety means she needs a home with someone around a lot, someone who works at home or is retired. She may be destructive if left home alone. She would also do best with another canine companion and secure escape-proof yard. Ducky is spayed, chipped and UTD on all vaccinations. She is now safe in a foster home but deserves a loving home of her own.She is a very, very special girl – truly a “heart dog." Ducky craves both human and canine companionship.  She is playing really well with her foster sister and has done well meeting new dogs, albeit a tiny bit guarded at first. She can be a little shy of new people, but warms up quicky. She loves to be petted and brushed, and once she gets to know you she just absolute loves people and other dogs. While she has not had formal training, she is already learning to sit and given her affectionate and loving nature she will like be easy to train and assimilate into a home. She does not pull on leash, but will benefit from additional leash training. She will need a patient, loving, nurturing home to show her what life is like as a pet. If you would like to know more about Ducky and give her a forever home, please contact Jennifer at jenniferreitman@gmail.com  An Adoption Application and Home Visit will be required 
 
 
 
 
 
  Urgent -Las Vegas area, Nevada - Beautiful Luna with the golden eyes - she is a 4-year-old female Husky/Malamute that needs a home by end of July. She is about 65 lbs, spayed and is up to date on vaccinations. She is also microchipped. She is a bit dominant with other dogs but not aggressive - she likes to be the leader - so a home as an only dog with lots of exercise would be great for her. She may be ok with the right [large] male that is not pushy. She loves that one-on-one attention. She walks nicely on leash but does tend to pull a bit in the beginning if she is excited. She has been kept outdoors all the time but is well behaved indoors as well.  
Luna has no separation anxiety but likes to dig a bit for fun if she's left in the yard. Luna has had basic training and is well behaved, but is submissive and shy at first meeting. She is a little afraid of fast-moving, noisy kids ... so best in a home without children or a lot of excitement. Luna likes a calm household, good daily exercise and an experienced handler. We would like to find a home for her in the Sierra by the end of August as she will thrive and blossom in a cooler climate. Please contact PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobl.net  or Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com  Transportation help is available. 
 
   
 
 

      Urgent! Lake Tahoe area - POLO - beautiful White German Shepherd/Husky mix. He is 2 years old, neutered and up to date on vacc's. He's very energetic and playful, yet calm with the proper daily exercise. He's well behaved and is sociable with people and other dogs. Not good with cats. He does have the habit of humping other dogs, so we would adopt him into a home with tollerant doggie companions! Polo needs lots of exercise and training. He is currently in foster home in Las Vegas but we want to place him in a home in a cooler environment. We would love to find someone with an already active lifestyle, who likes to hike and visit the lakes and streams. Polo would love this! He would need at least 6' fencing. Transportation help is available to get him into the Sierra, but we need committed and dedicated adopters so he is not passed around. He has a lot of potential with an experienced person who has lots of time to give to this beautyboy. If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, please contact our Rescue Coordinator Robin at CalmCompanions@Hotmail.com or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net  or call (775) 833-2066  TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

  
 
 
URGENT! Las Vegas, NV -  Legend cannot be kept by his owner any more so he only has about 3 weeks before he winds up at the shelter. Legend is a Malamute/Husky mix and maybe Border Collie with those markings. He's 4 1/2 years old, neutered, vaccinations, and weighs about 90 lbs. Legend is not very trustful of other dogs or men, and seems to be partial to female owners that are calm and assertive. He needs someone that has experiences with northern breeds and will take the time to give him some training and daily exercise. He's not very social with other dogs so will need training and socialization in this area. He's not good with cats or small dogs although he does live with a Chihuahua (we will not adopt to those with small animals). Legend also needs some leash training as he does pull, but good daily exercise and an experienced handler can fix this easily. He is not a jumper or climber, but does need at least 6 or 7' fencing. He has no food aggression with people but is protective with other dogs. Legend likes to ride in the car. He is a big family/pack dog and loves to cuddle and just hang with you. He would be best in a home that is calm and disciplined, with no kids, nor lots of activity or visitors. His owner does not know how to handle his dominance and will bring him to the pound if we do not find a suitable home for Legend. Please help this dog. If you are interested in Legend, please contact ouor Animal Coordinator, Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com
 
 
 
 
Urgent - Reno, Nevada - Arthus is a very sweet 4-year-old male Husky that needs a home ASAP. He was rescued by a caring woman named Sunshine just before the owners were going to have him euthanized. She cannot foster him very long so time is of the essence. Arthus weighs about 70 lbs, is neutered, and up to date on vaccinations. He likes other dogs and plays with them all. He is even good with cats! but of course we always recommend supervision with the small creatures. Arthus walks nicely on leash and is housetrained and crate trained. He's just a sweetie! He's not an escape artist but a new home would do well to have 6' fencing as all rescues are lonely and scared when they go to a strange environment. Arthus gives Shake and High Five, Speaks on command and plays Fetch. He's also good with kids. Sweet Arthus would love a nice home with active owners and someone around a lot to keep him company. Another canine companion would be really great for this boy. He is a bit worried as he is still waiting for his owners to come get him and he follows his foster mom around everywhere she goes. It's very sad when people buy these northern breeds and do not have the time or the energy to give them the lifestyle they need. They often wind up at the shelter. An Adoption Application and Home Visit is required to adopt all our rescues. If you are interested in giving Arthus a forever home we would love to talk to you. Please contact Sunshine at sunshine199453@gmail.com or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net
 
 
 
 
 
 
Anderson Valley, CA - This sweet and loving Shep has been waiting a long time for his perfect home! He adores other dogs and humans of all ages. This is a dog that loves to be around his family and companions, both dogs and people. He would do best having the companionship of at least one other friendly and playful dog, while also getting to enjoy plenty of love and attention from his humans. An ideal situation would be one in which someone is home the majority of the time, and there is the stability of calm, relaxed leadership.
    Shep responds well to positive reinforcement training, as he is both sensitive and eager to please! Although he is not accustomed to being in the house unsupervised, he is reliably house trained and will happily sleep through the night on a dog bed in the bedroom. Shep gets along extremely well with other dogs and is very playful;  he shows no interest in being dominant or domineering, but also is not submissive. A large enclosure/yard with secure 6’ fencing will be best for him.  
    While Shep loves to go on adventures (hiking, etc), he also does not seem to have a high need for extreme physical exercise, at least while living in a fairly large space of an acre or more. Shep has no issues with food aggression or resource guarding. His progress with obedience training in his foster home is a testament to his trusting nature, adaptability, and desire for positive reinforcement. Shep will be an amazing companion for someone who can provide him with the right environment, has large-breed experience, and is familiar with positive reinforcement training. Shep needs a home without cats or other small animals as he has displayed a strong prey drive at his foster home. An Adoption Application, including references and a home check, will be required for adoption. For more information about Shep, please email Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com, or contact Kay by phone at (559) 906-1829 / email at rescuednoah1@aol.com.

 
 
 
Very Urgent - Montana - This gorgeous 6-year-old Shepherd mix, Jacob cannot be adopted where there are small animals or kids - his last home had a small child who tried to take his chew toy out of his mouth and got nipped. The child wasn't supervised as all children should be when around animals, and the bite wasn't serious, but poor Jacob wound up at the shelter and may be euthanized. The shelter will only release him to a certified Rescue. Please help us get him out. Jacob is sweet and playful and gorgeous and in the right hands will make a wonderful companion. If you are interested in adopting or fostering Jacob, please contact Kim as soon as possible. The shelter won't hold him forever. Kim Kahl kimkahl@dukewarner.com>
