 Dogs for Adoption 
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. For an application or more information contact jenniferreitman@gmail.com 



PORTLAND OREGON - Bella is a stunning pure white Samoyed/husky mix and she is 3 yrs old and spayed. Bella was raised in a home with an active male owner, rides well in cars, enjoys long walks, and has been a lovely road trip companion in the past. But Bella takes some time to warm up to new people, and is partially-blind in one eye. Because of this, she has become fearful of certain stimuli, and has snapped or growled at unfamiliar people who enter her personal space. She was also initially trained with some harsh dominance-based methods, and has had a hard time trusting folks that she has not bonded to as a result. She will do best with someone kind and patient but also that has experience with helping a dog to learn to trust. It will take time and gentle training to make Bella feel at home. We feel that it would be best to place her in an adult-only family with no small animals, as she has showed prey drive toward squirrels on her walks. Other large-breed dogs are okay and maybe a nice friendly male companion would work well. Bella currently shares her life with a female Husky although Bella would be happy being the only dog as long as she gets lots of exercise and attention. Once you gain Bella's trust, she is all cuddles and happiness. She will give you her paw to say "Please pay attention to me!" and likes to play ball. A calm and low-traffic household would suit her best, so perhaps a farm or similar rural living environment would do with proper fencing. She is a great guard dog and will alert as soon as she feels that something is awry, but quiets down quickly after letting her people know what's up!
If you are interested in adopting Bella, or wish further information please contact: Kim at kimkahl@dukewarner.com 

ESCAPED! Janesville, Susanville area, CA - Camo is a very beautiful 1-1/2 y/o neutered male that needed a home right away. IF YOU SEE HIS BOY PLEASE CONTACT Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net  
He was given as a gift to a young man who does not have adequate fencing to contain him properly. He jumps a 6' fence easily and his landlord wants to shoot him for killing his livestock. And now he has escaped again! Owner only had to hold him two days as we have a good home for him - escape proof! Last seen Thursday May 19 in Janesville. He looks like a coyote from a distance and we are afraid he will be shot - it's a farming/ranching community. If found Camo will be adopted in an area where there is no livestock, and with someone that has escape-proof containment. Someone who is around a lot - i.e. retired, works at home and active - will be great for this young boy. Camo is about 88 lbs. and has vaccinations. He is good with other dogs and likes to play. He walks on leash but pulls a little, and hikes off leash in the woods with decent recall once he learns to trust and obey his handler. Currently he sleeps outdoors in his secure kennel as he chews furniture when left unattended indoors. Although he is housetrained he should not be left home alone for this reason. Sweet Camo knows some commands - Sit, Lie Down, Stay, Roll Over, and Shake. He is good with people and being young gets a little excited and anxious to meet you. He is high energy and needs someone that can give him proper daily exercise, along with some boundaries and training. We are looking for a person that has northern-breed experience. Camo can be protective on leash and will bark at strangers, but once introduced he is fine. He likes to ride in the car but will chew out of wire kennels if contained in a small area. Camo is not shy and likes to meet new people. IF YOU SEE HIS BOY PLEASE CONTACT Pamela Jo at (775) 833-2066 or PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net 
STILL IN THE SHELTER! - THIS SWEET BOY NEEDS A HOME! 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.comm    Transportation help is available  
NE Washington near Spokane. Jack is a beautiful big boy of approximately 8-9 yrs of age. He was part of a large group of Malamute mixes who lost their home this past spring. Jack is one of three dogs who has not yet found his forever home. Over 15 dogs lived wild and free on a large, wooded, fenced property and were never socialized to anyone but the immediate family who lived there. None of the dogs had the benefit of being able to come in the house or walked on leash. From a dog's point of view, it must have been pretty ideal being able to run and play in the woods, swim in the pond and hunt critter's and not have to do anything they did not want to do....however, from an adopter's point of few, it has presented a myriad of issues. The saving grace is that Jack and his two companions are sweet, non aggressive dogs ... they just don't know about things like being petted and loved on or having a cushy dog bed to rest on in the house. 

Jack has been at the foster home since May and enjoys getting his hot dog treats and does allow the foster mom to pet him and seems to enjoy it ... he has even started to play. Jack will need a new home with someone very patient, loving and kind who can continue to give him the time he needs to feel secure and trust. He has always been at the bottom of the totem pole in his former dog family and has a very subdued and submissive personality. His former owner had to bring him in the house for a brief moment just to give him his meat treats because Jack always let the other dogs take them away. Jack will need a fenced yard where he will be kept safe from harm and a nice dog hous to have shelter from the weather. He may in time decide he would like to come in the house so an open door policy would be awesome. We think it would be wonderful if someone had a heart big enough to adopt both Jack and Peanut together but we also realize that most people already have a dog and if that is the case, Jack will needs a dog companion who is gentle and not a dominant, aggressive personality but one who will be kind to him and become his best friend. 

Because Jack is not leash trained and is so socially withdrawn, he will need to be transported all the way to his new home in a crate and not taken out until he is in the fenced area of his new yard. Therefore, there won't be able to be any real long distance adoptions...only where he can be driven to in one day's time. 
For more information and an adoption application for Jack please contact Wolf Angel Rescue at: kimkahl@dukewarner.com 
Adoption pending! Midlothian, TX - In Foster home 
Night Ranger is a beautiful 5 1/2 y/o Malamute mix who is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. His owner rescued him after he lived - severely neglected and skin and bones - on a chain for 4 years. He was attacked by other dogs and taunted by kids. She has been fostering him for about 1 1/2 years. Foster Mom spent a lot of time rehabbing this pretty boy as he was terribly fearful and scared of everything. He is still very shy but warms up once he knows and trusts you. He is a big boy but will run and hide under the bed from kids or anything scary and has to be carried right now to the car until he gets used to the new foster family's car. He absolutely will only be adopted into a home that has no kids, cats or small prey-like animals, and the home must be quite and calm. He pulls a lot on leash as he is so fearful of everything and wants to bolt, but with a patient and experienced handler he should soon be having more confidence and trust. This poor boy suffered from all those years of isolation on the chain, and who knows what people did to him. Night needs an escape-proof fenced yard. He presently has 8' and does not even try to escape. He likes to dig dens in the yard but not for escaping. He will come when called [in the yard] especially if you have some treats! He is submissive with people and depends completely on his current canine companions for security. He will have separation anxiety if his buddies are taken away but he is fine when left alone with his doggie friends. Night loves to ride in the car as that's how he can view the outside world without being challenged. Once or twice he got loose but jumped right into the car when found (may not be as easy with a new owner, so prevention is the best bet!). Night is adjusting to his new foster home and slowly but surely becomng more self confident, but it will be some time for him to be completely rehabilitated, especially if he goes to a new home for the third time. If you fit the requirements and are interested in meeting Night Ranger, please contact Pamela Jo at PamelaJoWolflady2@sbcglobal.net   
Adopted! Incline Village, NV - at Pet Network - Ranger came to us from Lyon County as a found stray. He is a Shepherd/mix and is about 5 years old from what we can tell. He is a really sweet boy that is pretty well mannered but definitely needs some work on walking on a leash. If he is not with someone he can be an escape artist, but is really just trying to get back with a person. For example, when we first began letting him out in our yard, he dug underneath the chain-link fence and immediately ran back inside and just sat waiting for the animal care attendant to come out of the room she was in. Someone that is familiar with Separation Anxiety would be great for this boy, and is around a lot to do some training. Ranger is a bit prey oriented and got into a porcupine before coming to us, so he does look a little beat up in the face. He has been cleared of all quills and is on meds to prevent infection. Ranger is ok with other large dogs. He takes well to training mostly because he wants to be with and around people at every opportunity and very much wants to please. Ranger would be good with owners that are active and can take him for hikes and hang out with him. Six-foot fencing would be great for this boy unless he stays indoors and goes out for hikes. Contact Heidi at the Pet Network at htodd@petnetwork.org> or (775) 832-4404.
