VERY URGENT! PLEASE HELP SADIE - SHE NEEEDS HOME ASAP! Sadie is a beautiful creamy-white 8-year-old, spayed female Husky/wolfdog. She is not very big, about 45 lbs. now but at her perfect weight she is 55lbs. Her coat is luxurious and soft, she is curious and when she is happy and comfortable she is beautifully housetrained. At Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue she played with her male canine companion, Muraco, and loved being with him. Sadie is very shy with certain men so we are looking for a single woman who is calm, patient and understands sweet Sadie. Once she gets to know you she will allow you to pet her and put a harness on her and soon she will want cuddles, brushing and lots of affection. A woman who is self employed, works at home or retired would be perfect for this beautygirl. If you have an older male companion for her to hang with that would be ok too. In September 2013 Sadie tore both her ACLs and is healing nicely, but she cannot roughhouse with a young and playful canine companion. She is fine if left alone in the yard or deck for a few hours once she bonds with you. Sadie is a little shy with new people while out walking but will go up for a sniff and greet. Indoors she is curious and will sometimes come up to visitors and hang out close by and if you are lucky, she will allow newcomers to pet her. She walks nicely on a leash/harness and loves to go for hikes in the woods and creeks where she is most comfortable, relaxed and happy. She loves our picnics and she often takes a nap after a nice hike. With a patient and calm handler she responds very well. It would take about 3 weeks for Sadie to settle in at a new home with real adjustment in a few months. With a regular routine she becomes more and more comfortable every day and is very well behaved albeit a bit nervous with loud noises, shouting, and quick movements. Sadie is fine with kids that are calm and allow her to approach them, and she is loves our 11-year-old grandson. She lets him brush her as well as leash and walk her... but we will adopt Sadie into a home without small children, small dogs or cats - i.e. a calm and quite environment. She is much more comfortable with women, but ok with calm, gentle men (she has a male dogsitter!). She is be good with other dogs when introduced properly on a walk. We need to find a home for Sadie right away as her Foster Mom has left for Europe. It would be nice for her to have a home with another woman who loves her like her Foster Mom does. Sadie loves to come inside and be with you especially in the evenings to watch TV and likes to have someone around a lot. Sadie LOVES to watch wolves on TV! Presently she sleeps in the bedroom all night and is allowed to come and go to a deck through a slider. Sadie needs a secure fenced yard and the option to sleep in or outdoors, and would love a doggie door! A patient and gentle owner would make milestones with this sweetie. Sadie is submissive with humans and is not aggressive at all and will run away from you when anxious or scared so she is an escape risk for the first few months until she settles in. She loved to play with her boyfriend and is very energetic for a 9 year old, but with her weakened knees she will not be allowed to play rough ever again. She can have an older male companion who is calm and could just keep her company. SADIE NEEDS A PERMANENT HOME NOW! If you are interested in meeting Sadie at Lake Tahoe, give Pamela Jo a call at (775) 833-2066 or email her at PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com

Very Urgent! Needs home by mid August! Clayton, CA (Contra Costa County, 50 miles from San Francisco) - Here is Nikki - a gorgeous 8-year-old Malamute/German Shepherd boy that needs a good home. Nikki is about 90 lbs and is neutered. He has not had much exposure to other dogs but is great with cats. Nikki is housetrained and not destructive when left alone. He does not dig or climb or try to escape and is very secure. Presently with owner, he is free roaming on their unfenced property, but we require 6' fencing for all our rescues for those times you need to leave them home alone. Nikki has some basic training, knows Sit, Come, Outside, etc. He is a bit of a counter surfer and does not like his bones taken away, but that is an easy fix with proper training. Nikki is generally submissive with other dogs and people and has a sweet disposition. He likes to sit on chairs like a person; likes pack interaction with both people and dogs; likes to sleep on furniture but content to sleep in his bed and also outdoors. Nikki is very smart and can open doors, howls at the sound of ringing phone, enjoys hiking and treats, and although he likes children is better suited to a calm environment without kids. This boy has a great personality! Owner has to leave town for work and Nikki needs a home by mid August! Recently Nikki was adopted into a new home but after 3 days the new owner gave him back because they said Nikki was depressed. Please know that all recues take a while to acclimate. Often they do get depressed losing their families (especially when they were there from young pups), but with lots of attention and daily exercise, as well as a solid connection to let the dog know he is in good hands, they do adjust to make wonderful companions. Please allow a few weeks for this transition to take place with any dog you adopt, and the bonding process will begin! Transportation help available. Please contact Pamela Jo if you are interested in this beautyboy at PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com     
 
 
Venice, CA - Laska is currently in a foster home but Laska really needs a home she can call her own. Laska is a beautiful white and grey, 18-month-old female Husky/GSD [pictured on the right]. About 60lbs, and at 25 inches at the shoulder she is sweet as sugar, loves belly rubs and will hook onto you with her cat like paws for more affection. She is a cuddly girl who loves being petted, and will lean on your for more ear rubs. When not playing, she is a quiet, relaxed girl content to be curled up on a couch or dog bed. Laska is not needy and is comfortable with her own space and is quite independent, but also enjoys her humans. While she is not crated in her current foster home, she will willingly go into a crate and could easily be crated for bedtime if desired. Laska does well with males and is eager to play. She does best with a large, dominant male dog as she tends to play hard if the male is submissive so we are hoping to find a home with a big boy for her to play with. She should not go to a home with another female or one with small dogs or cats or any prey animals. She has met several dogs on her walks and does well with proper introductions. Rescued from a shelter as a stray, she is learning her manners and doing really well! She walks well on a leash but likes to explore and sniff everything. She is still a puppy so chewing things is still very fun for her and a wary eye on what you leave lying out is recommended. Laska has some minor issues with food - she will counter surf if food is left out but she is doing better with that too. Behavior modification and extensive training has already begun in her foster home and she is doing so good ... continued training is recommended for this smart girl. She should be fed separately from other dogs. We think she may have been starving awhile on the streets becasue she was very thin when rescued. She is eating like a horse now and starting to look even more beautiful! Laska can only go to a home with secure containment as it is likely she is an escape artist and is very smart. She is quite lithe and athletic! Although she has never tested her fencing or tried to jump, 7' fencing is recommended unless you have an overhang on 6' fencing. She is spayed and up to date on all her vaccinations. She would be a wonderful, loving addition to any home that is experienced with wolfdogs and northern breeds. If you think you can give this lovely girl a forever home, please contact Pamela Jo as soon as possible! PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com Transport help is available.
