ADOPTABLE & ADOPTED DOGS
Ikkuma: Female -Siberian Husky - 2 yrs- 55 Lbs
From Ikkuma's foster family...
Ikkuma, from the Inuit word for fire is a gentle girl despite her name. She's also a playful, affectionate, beautiful red/mahgony Husky. Unfortunately she spent her first 2 years outside in a small kennel not getting much enrichment or exposure to things but now has the freedom to roam indoors and out, play with our two other dogs, get loving from the family and lay on a soft dog bed instead of a concrete cell floor & she's taking to it like a champ. We really love having Ikkuma around here. It's been a joy to watch Ikkuma blossom into the dog she was meant to be. Watching a dog learn, explore & grow never gets old. Ikkuma is learning that the car takes her to fun places & she's almost potty trained! She will have you laughing with her fun personality & antics. She's good with dogs, super on leash, good at cafes and takes to new situations well. She's very adaptable. Anyone would be lucky to have this beauty. The mark on her nose that she came with has almost dissapperared.
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.
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.
Bear The Husky/Malamute: 4 years old, 70 Lbs
Bear had a rough start in life. He started out with a family that wasn't prepared for him and spent the 1st year of his life in a pen indoors. After the family surrendered Bear he spent 18 months in a shelter in Bakersfield and once he was finally adopted again, the family found out they were pregnant. Luckily Bear is a good natured guy but he never spent his formative years getting the enrichment and training he needed being stuck in a pen and then in a scary confined kennel at a shelter. His last family provided him love and the happiness he never had but sadly has to let him go due to no fault of their own. We want Bear to have a family that can devote the time, love and forever home that he needs to grow old with. He'd love a home where he will have free will and open spaces. His current family says Bear is a happy 4 year old, 70 lb guy! He's good natured, loves other dogs and people and wants to be everyone's best friend. He enjoys cuddling, is excited to see his people, great in the car and potty trained. Bear is medium energy and loves his adventure and outings too. he may need to be conditioned to go on longer hikes after his younger years in confinement. He enjoys having visitors and becomes Mr social. Local photographer, Kendra Luck, of www.dogumentarian.com/ who photographed many of these wonderful photos said Bear is a sweetheart and total goofball. Bear is waiting to be the center of someones world.
Mojito: Siberian Husky, 60 Lbs, 2 years old: ADOPTED!
From Mojito's foster family...
Mojito has the sweetest most innocent face. If you watched the movie Togo, Mojito has Togo’s enthusiastic spirit, agility and desire to be with his humans. He’s smart and curious. He knows how to sit, and will take treats gently from your hand. He’s a devoted, loving and lovable boy and will bond easily given warm attention. He’s athletic and fit, and lives for his walks and hikes. He'd make a great running companion. He bounces like a pogo stick (new name, Pogo?) when it’s walk time which is pretty cute. He’s good on a leash with a normal level of pulling but doesn’t drag you down the street. Mojito has medium energy, is active and alert, likes to play, run and romp but also relaxes for post-walk naps. While we managed the interactions between our dogs for the first couple days it's not needed anymore. Mojito and my two dogs get along and play great together. Mojito also really loves my teenage children. He is house trained and good in the car. Mojito is an all around good guy looking for that special person or people to bond with. Mo is looking for an active family.
