 Dogs for Adoption 
Very Urgent He may wind up in a shelter!- Mammoth Lakes, CA - Please help this boy! His name is Blaidd and he's gorgeous! Blaidd is 7 years young & neutered. He is about 100 lbs., current on vaccinations. He is not microchipped. Blaidd is great with all humans and ok with other dogs that are his same size provided he is off leash and not on his own territory (home or yard).  Blaidd is very protective and territorial and NOT OK with any other animal coming to our property big or small. He is not good with small dogs and tends to chase them if they are near his fenced property. He has been boarded at dog kennels and also had people come over and watch him when on vacation. He is fine at the dog sitter's with other large dogs. On a walk he gets dominant and postures with anything smaller or inferior to him (old/sick/submissive). He does have a strong prey drive and will chase chickens and possibly cats. Blaidd heels very well on leash, does not pull and would be an excellent companion for someone who walks and hikes regularly in a more suburban neighborhood [i.e. no chickens or livestock]. He may not be getting enough exercise so daily hikes will help dispel much of his energy and keep him calm, happy and more social. Blaidd comes immediately when called and will Sit in order to have his leash put on. He spends most of his time outdoors including nighttime when he is kenneled. When he is allowed indoors, he is very well behaved. He does not beg, play rough or cause any damage to our home. He has been known to find his way to a comfy couch from time to time and is housetrained. He lives on a fenced 1-acre piece of property and has never escaped or dug his way out. He is pretty content to find a shady spot and sleep. He has had a basic level of training and knows how to Sit, Stay, Lie Down and Roll Over. Blaidd is a little resource protective if he is disturbed while eating and will bare his teeth to warn you away -he has never bitten anyone. Blaidd is also the same way when it comes to dogs. He is very submissive towards people he has just met. He will roll over on his back and get his tummy scratched by anyone who is willing. He is also very submissive towards children as well. Owner has a 2-year old boy that Blaidd plays with and willingly takes directions from. However, we do not usually adopt our rescues into homes with small children mainly due to noise and excitement that children can often display when friends come over. A calm, disciplined, adult household is best for these dogs. Blaid loves riding in the car and does not have separation anxiety if he has another canine companion that he likes to play with. With a 2-year-old boy and another baby on the way, the family does not have time to give Blaidd the time or training he needs. Blaidd would do best in an adult home with proper containment (6' fencing minimum) and someone around a lot to help him acclimate into his new home. An active owner would be great for Blaidd as he will miss his family whom he has known his whole life (since puppy). If you are a good handler, have the right containment and you are interested in this sweet boy, please contact Pamela at PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or (775) 833-2066. Transportation help is available in California or Nevada. An Application and Home Visit is required for all our rescues.


Very Urgent! - Santaquin, UT. This sweet boy Waya was rescued from an abusive environment where he was frequently hit and yelled at. He looks to have some Husky and White German Shepherd. Waya only weighs about 50 lbs. He is not neutered and since he is two years old it's time to get this boy altered. A caring family convinced the previous owner to give Waya to them. He was being kept in a dog run that was about 5x5 foot with little time out for a walk. Waya is very scared and skittish when any one raises their hand to pet him. He is very underweight and he needs some good nourishment, training and TLC. Waya can learn to be comfortable once again with a loving owner that will give him lots of time and attention, with daily exercise. The family who rescued him cannot keep another dog due to city ordinance (they already have 3 dogs). Waya is a wonderful boy once he is comfortable with you, he is loving, sweet and submissive and always wants to be next to someone. He even has good recall off leash once he knows you.  He has no food aggression, rides well in cars, likes kids and is crate trained for short periods of time. Waya is good with other big dogs, and we prefer a home without small dogs and cats. The family has to find a home right way or Waya may wind up in a shelter where he most likely will be euthanized for his shyess. Please help Waya with a foster or permanent home. The family is happy to drive him to his new home within 100 miles if needed. If you are an experienced handler, have the right containment and you are interested in this sweet boy, please contact Pamela at PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or (775) 833-2066. An Application and Home Visit is required for all our rescues.
Very Urgent - Arizona  - This beautiful 1-y/o mid-content wolfdog named John Wicks needs a new home right away. He is an energetic young boy and playfully (in his eyes) bit someone. Although owner has been cooperative and offered to pay bills, she is fearful if legal action is pursued they may put him down. He has no idea he did anything wrong. He wasn't angry, just has always been mouthy and nippy since pupphood which the owner has inadvertantly allowed. John Wicks needs a wolfdog-experienced person that has escape-proof containment (min. 7', overhang, dig guard), lots of time to spend playing, training and exercising this pretty boy. He is sweet and has such good potential in the right home. He has been good with the other dogs at the dog park, but now that he is maturing he will posture a little before playins. Someone that can be a leader and guide him in what is acceptable and what is not. Owner will transport John Wicks to his new home. He needs a safe haven as soon as possible. An Adoption Application and Home Visit is required. If you think you have the right environment, lots of time and experience for this sweet boy, please contact Pamela at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or our Rescue Coordinator Robin at  CalmCompanions@hotmail.com   As soon as possible! An Adoption Application and a Home Visit are required for all our rescues.  Time is of the essence!
Redding, CA - Beautiful Husky/mix Cheyenne is only 3 years old and her 1-1/2 year old female Lab puppy companion named Xena need a new home! We would like to adopt them together as they are very bonded! Her owners are moving into a Senior community and sadly cannot take her with them. Cheyenne is about 75 lbs, both are spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Most of hat we have written here about Cheyenne goes for Xena except for weight.
Cheyenne is very good with large dogs, and small dogs too. It is unknown how she is with cats but we would not adopt into a home with kitties. She pulls on leash but has good recall off leash. Cheyenne is well behaved while she is at home with someone, but is usually kept outside in yard while owners are away. She has not tried to escape but in a new home, all rescues are scared in the beginning, so we always recommend secure fencing (6' +). She eats well with other dogs in the same area, no food aggression. She is a good watchdog and will bark at strangers approaching the home, but is submissive and friendly to friends and family. Cheyenne has had no experience with children so we prefer to adopt into an adult home, and someone who is around a lot. We are looking for a home with people who are active outdoors and can give this girl daily exercise and attention. A nice canine companion would be wonderful to help her acclimate into a new environment. A cool climate would also be perfect for this Husky mix and her sweet companion Xena. If you are interested in these girls, please contact Pamela at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or our Rescue Coordinator Robin at  CalmCompanions@hotmail.com   An Adoption Application and a Home Visit are required for all our rescues.  Transport help is available by owners as they want so badly for their girls to be in a good home.  www.LakeTahoeWolfRescue.com
Very Urgent - Yerington, NV - Need homes for 3 beautiful female Malamutes! [following pics & Bio] Owner has 6 Malamutes and the county ordinance is 3 dogs maximum so we need homes for these three pups. All these dogs have lived outdoors mostly in kennels in the hot desert temperatures, but they would love some one-on-one time with daily exercise, training and a loving home where they can be part of the family. They can be adopted separately or together. All will need secure 6'-fenced containment, and someone around a lot (retired, works at home, etc.). They are all underweight and will need some TLC and good quality nutrition, but all are in good health. Here are the three pups that the owner is willing to part with:
Pretty and skinny, Black and White Jazz was 1 year old on July 13. She is current on all vaccinations, spayed, and lives with the 5 other Malamutes. We don't know how Jazz would be with small dogs so we are looking for a home that may already have a nice large male companion for her. She currently has some training but pulls a bit on leash. She is well behaved indoors and needs more houstraining, but she does like to ride in the car with you. Jazz is very submissive and shy and needs a person that has lots of time to spend with her teaching her how to be more confident and secure - and enjoy life. She could do with more socializing and maybe a friendly male canine companion, and has great possibilities to be a wonderful companion for the right owner.
We would love to see Jazz in a calm household where she will get lots of love and attention. Best with no small children or small dogs.
Stormy -  beautiful grey and white 1-year-old sister of Jazz. She too is underweight. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, and although curious about small dogs none of these pups will be adopted into homes with small dogs. Stormy is still learning to walk nicely on leash but does not get out much for socializing. She is well behaved indoors but she too still needs more housetraining. She likes to jump up a bit, but knows Sit, Down, Wait, and currently learning to Heel. She is submissive with humans but will jump up on children to play. Stormy likes to ride in the car as well.
Best in a calm household, daily exercise, lots of TLC - with no small children or small dogs.
Mom Kima - is a beautiful and purebred Red Alaskan Malamute from Kingfishers Malamutes in Gakona, Alaska [both parents]. She is 4 years old, about 80lbs, and spayed. She too is current on vaccinations and lives with the other 5 Malamutes (her mate and four 1-y/o pups). She lived with cats at one time but we hesitate to put her in a home with new cats. Kima walks nicely on leash but has no recall off leash yet. She is housetrained and well behaved indoors, likes to dig in the yard when she is bored. Kima knows Sit, Down, Heel, and Wait at a distance. She has no food aggression with people but protects her food from the other dogs. She has no special needs other than a good handler that understands the breed as she wil get away with things if you are not disciplined and a good leader. Kima is crate trained for short periods of time, rides well in cars and likes to go with you places. She is friendly and affectionate and would love a home where she would get some real personal attention and continued training. A home with a person that is active daily would be great for Kima. Best with no small children or small dogs. Kima is very high energy and very toy motivated, so easy to give her exercise on rainy days! She likes to be in charge and is a little dominant so may be best in home as only princess (one-dog family). 
These three spayed females are in the hot desert of Yerington, Nevada where it gets to 100 degrees in the summer, and we would love to adopt them into homes in a cooler climate - up in the Sierra or Mammoth would be great! If youi are interested in adopting one or more of these three beautiful pups, please contact Pamela at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net As soon as possible! An Adoption Application and a Home Visit are required for all our rescues.
Prineville Oregon - This adorable pup Ody is an 8 mo old Husky/Malamute/Swiss White Shepherd (DNA test was done) who has gotten in trouble for killing a chicken who got into his yard. His owner is living on her mothers property and the mother now wants him gone. She had actually wanted him euthanized for killing the chicken!!! Prey drive is very common with northern breeds and due diligence should be taken to avoide situations like this. Ody loves to chase critters so will not be placed where there are small animals or livestock, and will need escape-proof containment (7' fencing prefered or 6' with lean ins). Ody loves to sing and will howl and talk to everyone he is familiar with. Ody has had some training and is still being worked with house training, sitting, staying and drop it ... he is great on leash but is a little apprehensive when meeting new people and their dogs. He just needs some socializing training to help him be more confident and secure. Ody lives in a rural area with not a lot of socialization opportunities. Please call/text 541-480-1662 or send an email to kimkahl@dukewarner.com for an Adoption Application to adopt beautiful sweet Ody! Time is of the essence.
Urgent - Three Forks, Montana - These two dogs - Tundra and Mayatuk - were fortunate to be rescued some time ago by a caring Rescue couple, but now their sanctuary has fallen on hard times and all the animals need new homes as the sanctuary is closing. Time is of the essence! Please help them if you can...
Tundra is a 5-year-old Malamute/German Shepherd Dog [GSD]. At the time of his rescue he was extremely underweight and appeared to have been beaten or maybe hit by a car. He was quite food aggressive  and you could see every notch of his spine. He is so much better now will sit and wait for his food to be put in his dish. He has some hip issues and his back end is a bit unstable when he walks. He does act a little sluggish when cold weather is around and may have some arthritis. He would do well with some Adequan shots and some joint care formulas, as well as a high-quality diet. He does not care to be touched on sides or past his shoulders as those areas are sensitive and seem to bother him. He is currently in with Ziva (german shepard/ husky). They do play and sometimes get a little rough with each other, but now it's probably time he does not have rough play so as not to reinjure. Tundra does seem to get a little agitated toward some people and is very selective. Tundra is a great boy and just very poorly treated by past owners and other people. He would be good in a home that is calm, disciplined and experienced with these behaviors, or a sanctuary where he does not have to deal with a lot of people. Escape-proof containment is required as is an Adoption Application and Home Visit. Please contact Dottie at wolfpawz2015@hotmail.com
Myatuk (mya took)- malamute/mix male 8-10 years old is the estimated age. We took him in as a owner surrender from Grand Junction. Were told that myatuk and the other male kept fighting so they couldn't keep them both together. When first introduced it took roughly 3 hours to get close to him. He was very protective of his mom (owner). We have 2 females that he accepted right away - a purebred samoyed and a pit/border collie. We have tried a few others but had some issues. He is very talkative and loves the water! We have tried 5 gallon buckets for drinking water he destroys them. He has a 45 gallon stock tank he loves - he is always playing in it then playing in the dirt (hard to keep him and the trough clean). He is very loving will crawl in your lap if you let him. A true lovebug. Mayatuk would be best in an only-dog home or one with a nice large female canine companion.  Escape-proof containment is required as is an Adoption Application and Home Visit. Please contact Dottie at wolfpawz2015@hotmail.com
Huntington Beach, CA - Needs home right away - Gorgeous Husky mix Zamira is only 1 year and 10 months old. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She only weighs 42 lbs and is microchipped. We would like to adopt her into a flea-free zone where it is cool and she can enjoy the snow and romping every day. Zamira is housetrained and loves to ride in the car. She walks nicely but will pull occasionally if other dogs or squirrels are around. She is friendly with children, people and other dogs. She is high energy and would do nicely with someone who is already active outdoors and likes to hike. Someone that is around a lot would be perfect for this girl as she does not do well when left home unattended. She is still a pup and will be an awesome companion with consistent training and a patient handler. A person who works at home or is retired is what this girl needs. Zamira has a beautiful howl and usually only barks when playing. She is protective of her food and should be fed separately from other dogs, but has no resource protection with humans. Owner is moving and keeps her crated most of the time now, so time is of the essence to get this beautiful pup into a good home. Adoption Application and Home Visit is required. For an application and more information contact jenniferreitman@gmail.com or Robin at calmcompanions@hotmail.com 
Meet most beautiful Bella - up for adoption!
Ms Bella is about 3 1/2 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 shy with 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 or lie quietly by your side. She has a beautiful coat, gorgeous eyes, and is about 65lbs. She does well with other large dogs (including females) but prefers not to engage in play or antics, content to watch from the sidelines. Bella is not good with small dogs or cats so she will not be adopted into a home with small animals. 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 is an escape risk, so 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 (Sierra). Oregon and Washington will be considered for the right family. Please contact Pamela at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net or our Rescue Coordinator Robin at CalmCompanions@hotmail.com An Adoption Application and a Home Visit are required for all our rescues.
