 Dogs for Adoption 
Urgent - Diablo, CA  - This beautiful fluffy white Native American Indian Dog Shilow needs a home as soon as possible. His owners are seniors in their 80s and this boy is too much for them to handle. He's actually good on leash but pulls sometimes if he sees another dog. Shilow weighs in at about 85 lbs, is 5 1/2 years young, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. His owners love him very much and had adopted him from the ASPCA a year and a half ago. They are not experienced enough with big northern breeds or training even though they did work with a trainer they feel a home with someone that can take sweet Shilow out for more daily exercise would be best for him. They only want to see him happy. Shilow is uneasy around other dogs and needs to be socialized properly. some dog-training classes where he can be around dogs in a controlled setting would be a good start. He is very well behaved in doors, is housetrained, kennel trained and is so sweet and loving to his family. He is a little shy around some men, best with women. He is not an escape artist so 6' fencing would be appropriate. He has no food aggression with people or other dogs, is in good health and submissive with the grandkids. Shilow likes to go for rides in the car and is very happy with his family, but if the gate is open he will run out and attack small dogs. Unfortunately this is typical for many large-breed dogs and why they wind up in shelters. Transportation help is available for this sweet boy, and we would like to place him in a home with someone that has northern-breed experience, and daily time to spend with him training and socializing (someone retired, works at home, etc.). He just needs another chance at learning to trust being around other dogs. Here is a little video of Shilow
Please contact Pamela Jo at PamelaJowolflady2@sbcglobal.net if you are interested in Shilo.
Urgent - Portland, OR - pretty Kiba is only 5 years old, weighs about 80 lbs, is current on vaccinations and needs a new home ASAP. Kiba is good with other large submissive dogs once he is introduced properly but better with smaller, submissive dogs. He's actually ok with cats, walks good on leash, and comes when called. He lives primarily indoors right now and would be great with someone that can give him daily exercise and training, someone around a lot (retired, works at home, etc.). He will counter surf if food is left out so training in this area is needed. He is house trained, but has never been left home alone without another doggie companion. We don't know if he would be an escape artist as he has always been supervised in the yard. He is quite food protective so more training in this area would be advised and we will not be placing him in a home with children or cats. He's had some basic training and is good in other areas. Kiba is shy with new people and dogs, is in excellent health, and lost a leg as a pup but does not seem to notice! He's energetic and loves to play. He likes to ride in the car and has not had any abuse or neglect - very much loved. Due to a separation in the family owner will not have the resources or time to give him the living situation he needs and deserves. Owner is moving in August so a home by the end of July is needed for this sweet boy or he will be euthanized. Owner is able to help with transportation. If you feel you can give this boy the training, exercise and care that he needs, please contact Kim Kahl at KimKahl@dukewarner.com 
Rogers, Arkansas - Beautiful Vega is only 3 years old and losing her home. Her owner has health problems and cannot give Vega the life she deserves. This often happens with northern breeds since they do need a lot of exercise and attention. Vega is about 80 lbs, up to date on vaccinations and is a very sweet girl. She has been submissive with other dogs but now that she is maturing she would be best with a nice large friendly male to play with. She has not been around small dogs and will not be placed with little dogs or cats. Vega walks nicely on leash once the excitement abates, but could use some more leash training as she is still a bit uncertain of leashes. She is very well behaved indoors when she has human company, owner kennels her when gone (but not for more than 2-3 hours). Vega has been kept in enclosure with 7' fencing, so that is what we recommend for her. She has no food aggression and knows some commands, but Vega is a bit fearful/anxious of new situations. She loves women but takes a little longer to warm up to men. She is not aggressive or dominant, just shy. She is in good health and has never been abused. Owner loves her very much and is heartbroken to give her up. Vega rides in the car but does have a little anxiety. She has been given a high-quality diet of grain-free kibble supplemented with real meat and veggies. Vega is super sweet with people and loves hanging out with you in the house - she can be a couch potato after she gets a good hike outdoors. She gives kisses and loves getting pets - very affectionate girl! Vega loves being with her other dog friends and is anxious when she is away from them, so we would like to place her in a home with other nice male canine companions. She is presently living with another female and they have to be separated which is very stressful for everyone. Please help us find a great home for beautiful Vega. Transportation help is available.

Salt Lake City, UT - Sweet Apollo is only 6 1/2 years old, weighs about 80 lbs, is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. His owner's partner died and she is unable to care for this pretty boy. Apollo is good with other dogs once he gets to know them and likes to play, but he is reactive to small dogs and cats. He walks nicely on leash, has good recall most of the time, is housetrained and kennel trained. He does not like to be left home alone and will pant and pace. He has not tried to escape their 5' fencing but we require at least 6' fencing as a dog may be anxious at a strange new home for a while. Apollo has had some training with local trainers and also SLC K9 Lifeline. He is a good boy. He likes to ride in the car and has no past history of neglect or abuse. Owner is saddened to have to give this boy up but she can not take care of Apollo any longer. Please help us find a great home for this beautiful boy. Transportation help is available.

Incline Village, NV – Lake Tahoe … Sienna needs a permanent home ASAP!    Sienna is a very pretty 10 y/o French Spaniel mix (not a wolfdog!), about 62lbs, spayed, vaccinated and she is in good health. Sienna likes to chase squirrels, birds, cats, little dogs etc. and is quite limber for her age. Sienna is very peaceful and loving, a real love bug with humans. She has been taking training classes and is more comfortable around new dogs now. She is doing great - knows Sit, Stay, Wait, Leave It, Come, Down, This Way - all the basics. Sienna is house trained and would be fine as an only dog or with a nice large or medium canine companion as she loves her male Malamute and they play very gently together. Sienna loves walks in the forest, has good recall when off leash, and heels nicely on leash. She enjoys car rides and just to be with you. No little dogs or cats please. Please help sweet Sienna find a forever home. Foster Mom needs surgery and can't get it until Sienna finds a home. We don’t want Sienna to go to a shelter. Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is happy to pay for continued dog Training classes with Guy Yaeman if adopted in the Reno/Tahoe/Carson area. Contact Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 or email  PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net    Come meet Sienna and take a walk with us! See what a sweetheart she is.
Dumped at shelter - now at Butte Humane society, CA - this beautiful and very sweet boy, Copper, needs a home right now. He is young, only 2 years old, neutered and great with dogs his size dogs ... loves to play and has lots of energy. He's a little rough with little dogs, wants to play but chases them around. Best in a home with larger dogs and no cats. Copper walks nicely on leash but needs to learn recall when off leash or he will take off. He is well behaved indoors but runs around the living room with the two other dogs he lives with and Mom is going nuts. He is in a pen when owner leaves or he will tear his blankets and bed. He is very frustrated not getting the attention, training or exercise he needs. He paws you for attention and love! He has been good in 6' fenced yard. He likes to dig for fun, not for escaping. Copper is in great health, is submissive with humans, likes to ride in the car, is a super loving guy who wants to get out and get some exercise (which he is not getting) and needs canine buddies to play with. We will not place him into a home where he is left home alone all day again. Someone who works at home, retired etc. would be great for this boy. Owner is alone, works a lot and can hardly take care of her other two dogs. She's alreadyu tried to surrender him to the shelter so we don't want him to wind up being euthanized. Copper is very submissive and too sweet! If you are interested in adopting this pretty young pup, please contact the Humane Soc. at 530-343-7917.
Apache Junction, Arizona (outside Phoenix) - This beautiful White Shepherd mix is named Phoenix and he is about 6 years old. He is 95 lbs, neutered and microchipped. This pup was rescued from a shelter but now his owner is soon moving to a small apartment in Las Vegas (very hot!) and she wants a better life for Phoenix. She loves her boy and is waiting for Phoenix to find the right home before she moves. Phoenix needs a nice yard, lots of exercise and hikes in the woods. He is good around other large dogs at the dog park and will be submissive if the other dog is dominant. He lives with a smaller 10 y/o Shepherd female. Phoenix is ok with the small dogs at the dog park but we usually do not not adopt large dogs with little dogs, cats or small children. He walks pretty well on leash, and does very well on off-leash hikes in the woods and stays close. He just needs to be leashed up before getting to the trailhead as he likes to play Come-Catch-Me. Phoenix is housetrained and well behaved while someone is around, but does have some separation anxiety if left home alone all day. He does much better when left out in the yard, and always better with another dog for company.
Phoenix will let you know when he has to go out for potty, he sleeps in owner's bedroom, and likes to sleep outside when weather is nice. Phoenix can Sit, Lay, Shake, and Rollover. He has no food aggression with people or other dogs, is submissive with humans, and rides well in the car. He is used to being on a ranch and is fine with horses. He is fearful to be in crate and will try to chew out hurting his teeth and gums. He's a little shy with new people but warms up quickly. He is great at the groomers, loves attention and will make someone a wonderful companion. He's very adotable! Let's help Phoenix find a nice home - it would be nice if we could place him in the Sierra where it is cool and he can run in the forest with you. Transportation help is available.
