ADOPTABLE & ADOPTED DOGS

Nelly: GWP/ Pudelpointer -4 years -35 lbs

From Nelly's foster mom...
Nelly who is 4 years old and 35 lbs is an extremely sweet and loyal pup. She was a little shy, mild mannered and nervous initially, but has grown more confident, expressive, and playful everyday. Due to Nelly's initial timidness she expressed some appeasement behaviors like, crawling & rolling over and just being unsure. With patience and gentleness this will turn around. The true Nelly is fun loving, affectionate and sweet, placing her head in my lap, soliciting pets and wanting to cuddle in bed. She's yearning for a person to shower her with love and affection. She would love nothing more than a gentle, compassionate person or people who live in a low to medium key environment to be her family. Nelly is medium energy herself and mostly mellow indoors. Outdoors she's sporty and fun, loves a good game of ball and played a bit with my neighbors small dog without problem. Nelly is house trained. she's not destructive, she's quiet in the house while playing with her toys, balls, and chewing on her bones and chew items. Nelly lets me work while laying at my feet. She is all this and more ... she's great in the car, walks well on leash, good at meeting other dogs though initially shy and is a good running partner. she is also initially shy in meeting new people, but once she feels comfortable, she will approach to be pet.  Nelly is an awesome dog and would make a wonderful addition to a family that has an active, loving lifestyle and has patience to let Nelly blossom in her own time.

Tilly: Shepard - Husky - Shar Pei - 1 years -45 Lbs

Once in a blue moon a dog this special comes my way. Tilly is my foster dog and every part of my being wants to keep her because I love her so much. I'm the coordinator here at WHS and I've fostered many, many dogs over the years. This one will be the hardest to part with. I want the best for her. A little about Tilly...

Tilly is all heart, charming and ever so slightly shy. She's a lover with a gentle old soul in a young dogs body. Whomever ends up with Tilda will be a very lucky person. She loves men and women equally. She's truly (wo)mans best friend, a loyal dog to the end so it's sad that she has not found her person yet. I can tell she's definitely craving that and bonding hard. Then there's the fact that she's gorgeous with those sky blue eyes, framed by dark black rings that are always expressive. She's fun to hold and pet because she's squishy all over under all that fur with a grandmotherly chin like a Shar Pei yet looks like a Shepski. The details: medium energy, good in the car, potty trained, easy going, good with dogs of all sizes, good on leash and good with kids. She's not really a dog park dog but loves hiking and adventures. She's energetic outside and relaxed inside. She likes to cuddle while watching tv and has an independent streak. She's still young so bully sticks, squeaky toys, puzzle toys and other things to keep her occupied will be useful. BTW, she's quiet like most Huskies but you can make her howl like the video's show. A siren made her howl in the outside video. For more information send in an application. If we think you are a good fit we will reach out.

Rogue & Storm: bonded siblings - Huskies 35 and 45 Lbs. - 4 years

From Rogue and Storm's foster dad...

These 2 are love and cuddles, have easy going natures, great on walks, good with dogs and potty and house trained. If I weren't going to be gone for 8 hours and traveling in the future, I would keep them. They've brought me so much joy and have been a surprise to how easy they've been. I'm a first time dog "dad" so I was expecting it to be more difficult, especially having 2! They have medium energy overall, are sweet and loving. Storm the black and white one is more outgoing and has fun vocalizations when he gets excited. For example, when it's time to go out or eat. Rogue the thinner one is quieter and more reserved but she's been opening up bit by bit each day. It's obvious they love one another. Both are great in the car, friendly to people and children and happy.

We will not be splitting up Storm and Rogue. They are true siblings from the same litter that have been together since they were born and don't like being apart. In their case having 2 dogs in easier than 1 and if they were split apart it would be traumatic for them and cause separation anxiety.

Rodi -Chi/Italian Greyhound - 1.5 years - 8 Lbs

Let us introduce you to this very special little guy- Rodi Blue. Rodi is 1.5 years old and 8 pounds of pure love and affection. Rodi has beautiful, piercing blue eyes and a merle coat. We think he's part Italian Greyhound and Chihuahua. He has the most adorable naked, hairless belly that feels like a babies bottom. According to Rodi's foster mom he's sweet, smart and fun, he will charm you with his "puppy", cuddly, lap dog ways. Since he's still an adolescent he has energy to burn. His favorite games are a good game of fetch and playing with his dog pals, big and small. He's a champion sleeper and napper. He likes to sleep in late and nuzzle his way under the covers to cuddle with you. He's quite kitten like in many of his habits. He's good in his crate in the car, good with people, almost fully house trained and has medium energy overall. We'd love to find him a home with a yard. That would make him happy to run and romp in but it's not a deal breaker if you don't have one. We are also looking for someone who has time to work with him since he's still young and learning. If training is a passion of yours, even better. Rodi is alert, smart and clever so things that will activate his nimble mind like puzzle toys, snuffle mats, find it games and other mind/scent challenging activities will go a long way with him. If you are looking for a spirited, spunky, fun loving, cuddly, cool looking dog then Rodi is your guy!

Duke: AST and Bull Terrier, 70 lbs, 4 years

Hi I'm Duke, don't let my adorable crossed eyes or battle scars scare you because I'm all mush, a lover not a fighter according to my foster mom. Anyway my scars may fade but I've already forgotten about them! I just keep getting reminded! I'm 4 years young and 70 - hunkaluv pounds. Here's what I told my foster mom to tell you about me...

Don't be fooled by my big, scarred up, jug head, I may have had it pretty rough on the mean streets recently but I'm a charmer and a lover, I love giving kisses and take treats with a soft mouth, I've heard this is a good thing so that's why I'm telling you. I love hoomans, dogs and children. I may love other things but I hold some things close to the vest -  sometimes you gotta, you know? I have some scars to show from my previous life, but I've grown into a solid gentleman. I get along perfectly with my foster dog sister, Abby. She's taught me cool stuff like how to navigate scary stairs. I'm a pro now, BTW. She also let's me snuggle with her on the couch and follow her around everywhere, she's like a security blankey. I really like having her around. I love going for walks with Abby and my foster mom and I'm told I have great leash manners. I don't pull and although I like other dogs, I won't pull you towards them. I love playing with my puzzles and foraging for kibble and treats in my snuffle mat. You can see from my videos on the website that I'm pretty close to rocket scientist status at this point with that puzzle toy. I am mild mannered and medium energy or so I'm told. I don't know, I'm just me - The Duke! I'm good in the car and I'm fully house trained, how do you like them apples.  I'm realizing if I listen I get yummy treats so I'm getting way better at doing what she asks of me. PLEASE keep up with the snacks if you adopt me. SNACKS ARE GOOD! I WUV them! I love sleeping in the bedroom with the family. My foster hoomans sleep on the big bed with Abby and I stay on my bed at the foot of the bed. See how well mannered I am?! I'm a very good sleeper, but I do snore a little. In the morning, I love to jump on the big bed and get snuggles and belly rubs. I'm good about going out to do my business outside, just thought I'd say that again cause I can. I can't wait to meet you, give you kisses, snuggles and show you what a good boy I am.

Shep 1.5 year old German Shepard Dog. 50 Lbs

Shep is a gorgeous 1.5 year old, 50 lb,  GSD. He's sweet, affectionate, potty trained, great in the car adventurer. He's medium energy, can cuddle with you for a good game or sitcom on tv and be ready at any time to go hiking, swimming and running and then come home and be a couch potato again. He's good on leash and great with dogs. His foster mom says this about Shep...

Goose Husky Mix 50 lbs - 3 years old. ADOPTED!

Goose is a 3 year old well mannered, handsome Husky mix with a beautiful parti eye and full mask.

From Gooses foster mom...


I absolutely love Goose! He is the most friendly, loving, playful pup! He's energetic outside while relaxed inside. He's a medium energy dog overall. He’s well mannered inside, potty trained, doesn’t actively dig into trash or jump on things he shouldn’t be on, he only gets onto the couch or bed when invited. He loves to cuddle and loves scratches! He’ll run right into you and stick his nose between your legs or the couch cushions until you pet him. His leash manners could use some brushing up but he'd make a great running buddy and activity partner. He's been good with kids on our walks. He's always ready to go outside on an adventure. Great in the car and is an infectious happy guy with a big ol' smile and tons of love to give!!

Koda: Shepski, 25 Lbs, 4.5 months old - Adopted!

Koda is a gorgeous Shepski with a pretty red, tan and apricot coat who had a Shepski mom and GSD dad. What is most striking about Koda are his unique, light eyes. Koda just lost his first molar tooth a week ago so we know he's still a teething youngster yet he's fairly big for his age. Koda is playful, loving and affectionate, he's crate trained, fully housebroken and has medium energy overall. He has recently mastered some new things like how to walk on leash, take the stairs and navigate living indoors with humans. He's great in the car with other dogs and children. He's been getting some social enrichment with other puppies and he's great with both big and small and older and younger puppies and dogs. He's a typical puppy in every sense and a great one at that. He'd love to go to a home with a young friendly dog or have lots of playdates with other pups his age.

Ava - Red Siberian Husky, 1 years old, 50 Lbs- ADOPTED!

1 year old, 50Lb Ava is a beautiful red head girl who's extremely sweet, a little bit shy initially, gentle natured with a bit of spunk. She's medium energy and like any good young Husky get's short spurts of the zoomies in the morning and evening. She's a bit clumsy and throws herself around the couch for fun. We think given time she'll be a very fun loving, outgoing dog. She'd be the perfect fit for someone with an active lifestyle, hiking, running and biking. She likes other friendly dogs and so far seems very unconcerned with children. Ava is house trained, good on leash, good in the car and a generally great dog. Anyone would be lucky to call her theirs.

Lady, Redford, Teddy & Duchess - ADOPTED!

Charlie: Husky - 1 year old, 58 Lbs: Adopted!

Charlie is a beautiful bi-eyed boy that loves to party. He's very social and outgoing, and loves to meet new people. Like many young dogs, Charlie gets excited meeting new people and dogs. With the help of tasty treats, Charlie is working on his young dog manners and learning how to greet people with a little less exuberance. After all Huskies are known as a friendly breed. Charlie is very treat-motivated, and wanting to learn. Charlie would make a great running and hiking partner. The active life would suit this guy well. He can settle well too once he's relaxed in his forever home. Charlie is social, outgoing and confident with other dogs. As soon as he meets a dog, he is ready to play. He does best with other dogs who enjoy playing as much as he does, but may be too much for more mellow or low-key dogs. As he ages and with more socialization, he will learn to play with the appropriate dogs. Charlie is looking for his person, his forever home. He's been bouncing around a lot and we would love to give him stability and his forever. If you are ready for a young active guy who can chill out too then Charlie is your guy.

Skye -Husky, 50 Lbs, 1.5 years- ADOPTED!

Skye is a petite, Fully masked, beautiful, soft, affectionate Siberian Husky.  She's gentle with toddlers and adults alike. She enjoys dog parks, dogs and will do zoomies for days at the dog park. She would love to go to Husky meetups because she enjoys playing with other Huskies. She'll play with anyone but Huskies get her. Her Foster mom says...

Skye is great with children, she lays on the floor while my 1 year old 'chats' with her and tickles her ears. She loves to chase a ball or toy up and down our hallway and will sometimes do it in the park maybe 3 or 4 times until she gets distracted - typical non obsessive Husky personality. She is a giant love bug, she likes to snuggle up under your armpit and will lay while you rub her belly, scratch her bum or her ears. She sometimes jumps on the bed and will nuzzle up under the pillow. She is low key inside and high energy outside, wants to sniff everything, wants to say hello to every dog she passes. She enjoys our yard and will hang out in it for long periods of time to ponder life. She is fantastic in the car, we give her some bully sticks to keep her busy. She just lays down in the back. She was terrified of the river at first but by the third day on our camping trip she swam across like a champ (on leash of course) She's almost fully housebroken. We would keep her if we could, that's how much we love this sweet natured girl but unfortunately we are maxed out with a child and another dog.  Breed experience.

Lucas, 2.5 years old, 70-lbs: ADOPTED!

Lucas is smart, sweet and affectionate big boy. He's medium energy, independent and housetrained! What more could you want? We'll I can give you more! He stays off furniture, loves his dog bed and is good with dogs both big and small. He's a leaner, a bit of a goof and cuddler, practically a lap dog. He'd probably prefer to be an only child and doted on. Lucas was definitely hit with objects and a hand in last life so we are looking for someone who is going to show him the consistency of a gentle guiding hand he never got. No cats, Kids over 10

Jaxton: 1.5 years, 60 Lbs: Adopted!

Jaxton is a 1.5 year old, 60 Lb, striking beauty. He's great with kids, cuddly and affectionate and is good with dogs too. He's learning the leash and enjoying going for walks. He'd make a great running partner and is good in the car. He's pretty mellow indoors, has a fairly easy going nature but he's a Houdini meaning until he is finally settled and happy in his home he's the great escape artist. We will be looking for a walk up or very secure fencing for this guy. If you are interested please fill out an application but please respect the fact we are not getting back to emails at this time. Thank you.

Nya - Husky Mix - 3 months - 15 Lbs - ADOPTED!

Nya is a 3 month old, sweet, playful, crate trained, medium energy puppy who's not potty trained yet. She was part of a confiscation case and has never learned how to walk on leash, navigate stairs, share with others or fully trust a human or dog. She has a lot to learn with the right person who will gently guide her and teach her about life, build her into a confident girl who she can call her person. She picks up behaviors and tricks quickly with the right food motivation. Human food to be exact. Not as into dog food grade treats, who can blame her. She's already learned how to navigate the stairs and is learning the doggie door now. Update: learned the doggy door! She'd do best as an only dog. Although she likes dogs and enjoys playing with them, she doesn't look to dogs for guidance but instead sees them as competition to her valuable resources whether that be you or her food and water. If she does go into a home with another dog then you will be required to hire a certified trainer from our list of trainers. That way you and Nya will learn how to nip the resource guarding in the bud while she's young and small. She's a beauty with her brown coat and blue and green eye. We want to see her grow up to her full potential so we'll be looking for just the right person or people.

Zoe: Shepski -2 years old, 45 Lbs Adopted!

Zoe is a sweet, petite, bi eyed, medium energy Husky mix who came from a confiscation case with 8 other dogs from one home to a high kill shelter. They were half starving & scared. In just a few short days she's come such a long way. She's great with other dogs, house trained, easy in the car, makes a great running partner, not fearful of the outside world and loves working for treats. From her foster mom...

 

Zoe is a sweet as sugar,  40 lb, very pretty, affectionate, medium energy Husky mix who's slightly shy but warms up quickly. She is happy whether on a walk or lounging around the house. She is a very manageable size with a striking eye color combination of blue sky and light brown. She’s fully house-trained! Yay! Her foster family is working at home, so she roams from room to room to check in throughout the day giving kisses and wags and then curls up for a nap on her bed.  Zoe gets along with the foster family’s Shepski and is great on leash and eager to meet new dogs out on walks. She'd make a great running buddy. She catches on to tricks and behaviors very quickly and wants to please you. With just a few days of training she learned to “sit” and “lie down.” This is an easy, mellow dog especially for being a Husky mix. Anybody would be lucky to call her their own. A home with another young friendly dog would be great but not necessary.

Eliz AKA Ellie: Shepski 40 lbs 2 years old-Adopted!

Eliz is a petite, gentle, calm Husky mix who's house trained, easy to live with and great with other dogs. She rides well in a car, has the softest mouth when taking a treat and has the most beautiful coat ever. She's mellow inside and full of energy outside so she'd make a great couch buddy to running partner. She had been a mama to the pup pictured here and was confiscated from a hoarders household so she's ready for some 1 on 1 attention and  love.

From Eliz's foster mom...

Ellie is a curious, attentive, sweet Husky mix who greets any human or dog with gentle kisses. She has a gorgeous soft coat. What makes her stand out the most is her enchanting eyes. One is crystal blue, while the other one is green. She loves to go on walks, is leash-trained, and would also make a great running partner. She can be very active outdoors, however indoors she is quite mellow and calm. Ellie is extremely friendly and rarely barks. She has been playful with every dog encountered on walks. Ellie is a cuddle bug but a little shy at first.  She quickly warms up though. Another bonus is that all signs point toward her already being house-trained. She gets along extremely well with my older  senior Golden Retriever. She likes to cuddle up next to any human or dog near her.

All 4 dogs Adopted!

HAYES: Siberian Husky - 2 years - ADOPTED!

From Hayes foster family:

We can't say enough good things about Haye's. Hayes is amazingly calm for a Siberian Husky. He's potty trained, loving, easy going, medium energy guy who loves children, car rides and long walks. He has good leash skills, is friendly with all dogs and gets attached to his person. Hayes knows some tricks like paw, high five, and sit, he's gentle and polite.

If you think you could offer a loving home to gentle Hayes please apply on our adoption application page. Thank you.

Camille: Labrador/Pitty Mix - 2 years old - 50 LBs: Adopted!

Camille has been through a lot in her short 2 years of life. We just took her off the euthanasia chopping block only an hour before euthanasia. She was brutally attacked all over her body by another dog while at the shelter. To live through that and then to be put to sleep - we couldn't let that happen, not when she is such a sweetheart! Her wounds are healing nicely and she's no longer on medication. She would love a soft place to land forever. She's a calm, fun-loving and happy dog that gets on well with other dogs despite her injuries, as a matter of fact she loves them. She loves us humans too. She's playful and has energy but would also enjoy curling up on the couch with you to watch the game while getting cuddles.

 From her foster family: Camille deserves the absolute best, she's a darling, innocent dog, She is deserving of a family that will give her so much love. She's extremely forgiving, calm, cute, affectionate, housebroken, great with dogs, would love to live with another young friendly dog since she's ready to play, she's easy, settles well has medium energy, is happy and one of the best dogs I've known. I would adopt her in a heartbeat if I didn't already have a dog & could afford it. She deserves everything! She's a bright spark.

NIKKI - 1.5 year old Shepski 50 Lbs- adopted!

From Niiki's foster family:

Nikki is a clever girl who has a positive attitude, she's affectionate and outgoing with both dogs and humans alike, that goes for kids too. She loves to play, and enjoys outdoor adventures such as walks, hikes and like most Huskies Nikki makes a great running partner. She arrived with no experience on leash but is walking and running like a pro now. She's a quick learner in most things. She's house trained and great in the car. Nikki loves playing with her stuffed toys, puzzle toys and chewing on bones which are good mental/physical activities While she has some energy, she’s is a champion napper and can hang out on the couch with us while watching a TV program and enjoys a good ol' fashioned tummy rub. She has basic knowledge of commands like sit, down, stay and is treat-motivated, so she loves to practice. She is potty trained but so far prefers to go in the yard rather than while she’s walking. So a yard would be a good thing. Nikki would love to be in a home with another dog or get some dog park time. Overall Nikki would make an active family very happy with her cheerful, fun and sweet natured ways. If you are interested we are not responding to inquiries at this time so instead please fill out the application, https://www.welcomehomesanctuary.org/adoption-application Thank you.

RABBIT: 5.5 months old: ADOPTED!

From 1 day of fostering...

Rabbit Rabbit is a ridiculously cute 5 & 1/2 month old pup with the sweetest most innocent eyes. She seems potty trained and knows how to sit. She has not been in a crate at all and has not gone potty in the house. She also hasn't put anything in her mouth that wasn't food or a toy and hasn't jumped on the counters or gotten into anything, it doesn't mean she wont but in one day that hasn't happened. She loves the couch and being on furniture in general. We've learned that she likes to play with toys and chase lizards and is great with dogs. She is interested in the cats but in a nice playful way. She was licking Loki the cat so I'm sure she will be totally fine with cats. Rabbit seems to be medium energy because although she loves to play and run around - she settles down well. I could see someone easily falling in love with her.

Mia - 3 year old Husky -55 Lbs- ADOPTED!

Mia is super sweet, friendly, and beautiful. She gets compliments from strangers and friends alike! She's well-mannered in the house and is happy to curl up on a rug or dog bed nearby while you work or watch TV.  She's a champion napper, kid lover and quiet dog. Mia sleeps soundly through the night on her own bed. She is polite and has pretty good impulse control so never tries to get on our furniture or steal our food. Mia is new to the city and still getting used to all the stimulation that city life has to offer. She's interested and a little insecure about  all the sights and sounds on the street. Because of this she's a little distracted at the beginning of a walk but soon will settle down. She is a great running buddy and enjoys our morning runs! Mia is treat-motivated and a smart girl; her leash manners and sitting are improving after just a few days of training. She's gentle and friendly with all people and dogs she meets and doesn't jump or bark. We have heard she's not good with cats. She is mostly potty-trained and we're continuing to reinforce good behavior. This sweet and energetic girl would make a great addition to an active family that can continue building her general confidence.
