Sadie is a beautiful creamy-white 8-year-old, spayed
female Husky/mix. She is not very big, about 50 lbs. Her owners moved and didn't want
to take her so Sadie was sent to Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue. When Sadie arrived here she
was extremely shy, her coat was dry and falling out, her teeth were solid brown and
she only weighed 45 lbs. She was very fearful and was afraid to get in a car or meet
new people. Now her coat is luxurious and soft, she's gained some weight, her teeth
are much better and she is curious and 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 best with a woman, and once she gets to know you she will
allow you to pet her and put a harness on her. A person who
is self employed, works at home, or retired would be great for this beautygirl but as
long as she has a male companion to hang with, she is fine if left alone in the yard
or deck for a few hours with access to a doggy door to home. When outdoors, Sadie is
shy with new people 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 where she is most
comfortable, relaxed and happy. With a patient and calm handler she responds very well.
It would take about 5 weeks for Sadie to settle in at a new home with real changes in
5-6 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. Good daily hiking is great for helping her relax and before
she tore her ACL she was going out every day for hike in the woods. It's been 4
months and she is healing very well and now can go down a few stairs. Sadie is
going for walks through the woods and is enjoying every minute of it after having
cabin fever for 4 months and not getting out. Sadie is ok with kids that are calm and
allow her to approach them, and she is very curious with our 10-year-old grandson and
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 sometimes ok with calm, gentle men. She
can be good with other dogs when introduced properly on a walk. She would not be happy
in an environment with a dominant female. Although she is still very shy and a bit
nervous in unfamiliar situations, she is a different girl now and it would be nice for
her to have a home where she can be happy. Sadie is now housetrained and does love to
come in and be with you, especially in the evenings to watch TV. 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 with her "mate." A patient and gentle owner would make
milestones with this sweetie. Sadie is submissive with humans and is not aggressive at
all but very skitsy and runs away from you when anxious so she is an escape risk. She
loved to play with her boyfriend and is very energetic for a 9 year
old, but that's how she tore both her knees [a month apart, first
one end of September] so she is not allowed to run or walk many stairs for a
while. An older male companion would be best now who is calm and could keep her
company. If you are interested in meeting Sadie at
Lake Tahoe, give Pamela Jo a call or email her at PamelaJoWolflady@yahoo.com
Urgent - Leo - is a big, fluffy
and handsome 6-year-old boy who looks mostly White Husky. He is
very friendly and affectionate, albeit shy when he first meets you. He was adopted by
the breeder to a home with other dogs and he got along fine with them. Leo loved
his new owner and would not let her out of his sight. In his new home he learned to go
for hikes on leash in the woods and he travelled with her to work in the car, but
Leo did not like being crated while she had to work. He chewed out of the crate and
wanted to lie by her side, but this was not allowed at her place of work. He does not
do well when left home alone unless you have an escape-proof enclosure and buddies for
him to hang with. They
loved Leo so much they bathed him, groomed him, and had him to the vet right away for
examination and neutering. Leo's bloodwork came back negative, he has a clean
bill of health. Unfortunately the woman has to work and could not leave Leo home.
Sadly they gave up sweet Leo. He is now with his other packmates at our
Foster Home. By the way, Leo is Sophie's sister.

Leo & a
Santa Rosa, CA - Loup is a very sweet 8-month-old neutered male that
needs a very qualified home. He is quite shy of humans but with an experienced, calm handler he responds very
well. He will walk off leash and stays with a pack most of the time (not the best recall),
but will need lots of training and bonding with his new owner first. Loup would also be
best in a home with very active owners that can take him hiking every day. A person who is
around a lot (retired, works at home) would be the right match for this boy. His owners
love him but they have young children who like to play with Loup, and when they get
excited it triggers the Predator/Prey response in him. He is gentle with the little
girls but gets a bit rough with their 7-year-old son (or is it the other way around?
son likes to wrestle with him). We would like to rehome Loup into an environment with no
children or small pets. Since he is still a pup Loup is very submissivie with other dogs
and accepts the subordinate position in the pack. Loup will need an escape-proof
containment - 6-7' fencing with dig guard would be best for him. He has not tried to
escape his own fencing as he likes to stay with his male dog friend, but he does have
separation anxiety if left alone and will chew things. Therefore, Loup will need
another canine companion at his new home to make him feel more
comfortable and secure. A dominant female would be great for this sweet boy. If you feel
you have the right environment and lifestyle to adopt Loup, please contact Pamela Jo at
