AKELA
Sex: Female
Age: 1 yr old (est 1/2017)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status:

Akela is a tiny little girl (34lbs), full of the energy of a husky twice her size as she can outlast 5 of her foster siblings at times! She is very smart and learns quickly - picked up how to use the doggy door and crate training very easily, though still working on her counter-surfing!
Akela would benefit from a doggy playmate but she can be very bossy and hasn't learned when to stop at times. Still working on some resource guarding. She is also extremely human-affectionate; she's never met a stranger. She loves to cuddle and get loving often times butting in on her foster siblings! She likes her kennel and will often go in mid-day to take a nap and chew on a bone in peace. She sleeps in it through the night. She is being fostered in SW Louisiana!! Originally adopted 5/6/2017; returned 5/20/2017 thru no fault of her own, resident dog was not happy with a fur-sister. :-( Click here to see her pictures and progress on Facebook!

Alita has been thru a lot in her short life but is a husky diva who hasn't let any of it slow her down!! Her favorite things are food/treats, squeaky toys, playing with her foster siblings and puppy lattes!!! She has a lot of spunk, character and attitude!! She is used to being in a crate but she does have accidents in there. She is a sweet girl with lots of love to give to someone who isn't deterred by a little leaking. She does need a doggie playmate or else she will drive you crazy unless you're willing to play with her, exercise her and wear her out!! She will likely always leak some and seems to be prone to frequent UTIs which will require a urine analysis and culture to determine which antibiotic isn't resistant to it. Other than the leaking and UTIs she's a healthy, playful, wonderful girl who deserves a fur-ever home! Click here to see her pictures and progress on Facebook!

KYRA
Sex: Female
Age: 4.5 year old (est 5/2017)
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Status:
NOTE: Cat and small dog friendly!

Kyra is available for adoption or foster after being adopted over a year. Within the last couple of weeks she's started acting out by breaking fence planks and being destructive. She doesn't do well in the crate. Her owners say nothing has changed in family life or environment to cause this and she just had her annual. "She does well at doggie play days & doesn't seem to have any issues with other dogs large or small...She loves to talk to you, and will dash about the house and chase her tail, but this playfulness has taken some time to come about and lasts only for a brief period of time. We took her to dog training when we got her, she does very well on a leash, but doesn't come well which is another concern, in the house/yard she'll sit, sort of stay, lay down...none of them extremely well, but she does them." We are now looking for a committed adopter to help her thru these new issues!! She now weighs 124lbs and needs to lose about 10lbs. Originally adopted 1/3/2016; returned to rescue 5/11/2017.Click here to see her pictures on Facebook!

MALACHI
Sex: Male
Age: 1.5 years old (est 12/2015)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE
NOTE: Needs to be an only dog and with an EXPERIENCED husky owner! And NO DOG PARKS! High prey drive - no cats, no ducks or bunnies

Malachi (my Angel in Hebrew) is a young (1.5 yrs old) gorgeous male who is sweet, laid back yet can be playful. He is an insecure dog who doesn't need or want to interact with dogs until he has a chance to get to know them a little better. He is NOT dominant, but is insecure and fearful. Therefore he needs an experienced, patient owner who will learn how to read him and his signals to prevent any kind of adverse reaction (2+ months). He needs slow, controlled introductions to other dogs especially in new environments. This is not just basic obedience training that's needed as he's pretty good with commands, loose leash walking, etc. It's a behavior issue in how he handles new situations and new dogs. He would be best as an only dog but he can co-exist with other dogs IF the new owner is patient and willing to work with him to establish the rules and limits which can take a couple of months or longer as well as behavioral training. He needs and wants to trust his humans. He is NOT a dog park or event dog...right now but he has potential to be in the distant future. Click here to view his pictures on Facebook!


MYKA
Sex: Female
Age: 7 mo old (est 5/2017)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE

Myka is a 7 mo female husky who ended up at the shelter on a bite quarantine! We're pretty sure she was just being a typical, rambunctious puppy who needs some training especially with nipping and snapping when she doesn't get her way!! The shelter reached out to us about taking her into rescue. She does like to nip and "bite" to get her way so she needs an experienced owner to help her realize that is not acceptable behavior.

PARFAIT
Sex: Female
Age: 3-5 yr old (est 4/2017)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: MEDICAL TREATMENT

Parfait was found in terrible shape but fortunately she was one of the lucky ones and for a dog that was in critical condition not that long ago, Parfait has sure turned into a real sassy pants. Her bloodwork isn't perfect but has improved quite a bit. She still has a long ways to go but she's definitely feeling and looking better these days! Click here to see her pictures on Facebook!


ROMEO
Sex: Male
Age: 2 yr old (est 10/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE
NOTE: Needs a doggie playmate, high prey drive!!

Romeo is done with his heartworm treatment and ready for his Fur-ever home!! This boy is very sweet and loves to play! He has high energy according to his foster mom and gets the zoomies several times a day especially now that it is cooler! He loves the dog park and he loves water!!! He will sit when commanded and still learning more manners everyday. He pulls a little bit on walks but for the most part walks well with his foster pack. He has some dominant traits in him and would like to be the boss, but his brothers are older and larger so he is stuck at the bottom of the totem pole! When he first came home, he showed some food aggression and he is still working on that, and he is weary of people approaching him at night, nothing a little dedicated training can't fix. He will still try to mark occasionally but usually pretty good. He is close with a younger husky sibling and has bonded well so he would do best in a home with other dogs, preferably submissive! He loves to chase squirrels so cats are probably out for him, although he has not been formally tested. Click here to view his pictures on Facebook!


SADIE
Sex: Female
Age: 1.5 old (est 3/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky mix
Status: AVAILABLE

Sadie is back at her foster home and doing good with adjusting back to home life. She loves to play with a couple of his foster siblings. Still timid and skiddy with humans and will just continue to take time for her to come around. Loves treats but will not take them out of your hand. Very sweet girl.
We rescued Sadie, husky/white shepard mix from a local shelter where she was scared and probably very worried about her puppies (about 5 weeks old). Over the next 2 months they did well and all of her puppies have been adopted. Click here to view her pictures on Facebook!


SARAI
Sex: Female
Age: 2 yrs old (est 8/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE
NOTE: No small kids, prefer experienced dog/husky owner

"I am still frightened of new people and other animals, I am learning on how to trust again. It takes me a while to warm up, so I would have to meet you many times to know you are someone I would like to hang out with. Saturday off leash dog socials are really fun, the humans just ignore me, but I do not like the other dogs getting too close to my foster mom. I have to protect her you know! I love a great game of tug of war, I can play until your arm falls off. Stuffed animal toys are really fun I love to through them up in the air and tear the stuffing out of them. “I do not know who made that mess, I think it was the cat” I like kitties but they do not understand why they will not play chase with me. Why do they run and hide? I love to go for car rides, I am trying to practice my culinary skills in the kitchen.. however the items never seem to stay on the counter. How do they just disappear? I love hunting lizards and will dig to China just to attempt to find one I spotted. Flying insects are pretty cool too, see me jump mom? I am pretty clever… I know how to sit, shake, and learning to lay down. I love belly rubs and relaxing in the recliner with or without my human. The tile floor is my favorite chill spot. Being a Princess, I really love shoes especially the leather kind. Even though I cannot wear them they taste yummy. I know how to wait to go potty outside but when I am not happy I will leave you a present. I understand the meaning of no but sometimes you just have to be your own girl! Princesses have privileges! I love to go on walks on the leash… dragging my foster mom really gives me a great workout. I am not too picky when it comes to food, I pretty much like anything especially the yummy food the humans eat… what do you mean this is not for dogs? Did you say DQ, a small vanilla ice cream cone is the best on a hot day!" Click here to view her pictures on Facebook!


SHELBY
Sex: Female
Age: 3-4 yearS old (est 5/2017)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: MEDICAL TREATMENT
NOTE: small dog friendly!

Shelby was brought into a local shelter with a terrible open wound on her paw. After testing and biopsy it was determined it was not malignant but rather a severe infection that already took a toe, and almost another one and ate thru the tissue. We proceeded with an amputation and she's doing well so far. Once cleared from the surgery she will be spayed and then undergo heartworm treatment. Donations are also greatly appreciated as her current bill for past 2 days at GCVS is $2100!! PayPal: contactus@texassleddogrescue.org. TIA!!

SOUFFLE
Sex: Female
Age: 2 years old (est 11/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE

Need Gentle Kisses? Then Miz Souffle is the lil' Southern Lady for you!!! Super sweet and gentle with everyone, she is a favorite with whomever meets her and at Doggie Daycare. She may have had a broken pelvis but this girl takes it in stride and enjoys her walks, daycare activities and running in the yard teasing her foster sister Noshy. Let me clarify the last bit, she teases Noshy then runs away to hide behind me :P Note: with humans she can be mouthy and grab your hand in play but will not break skin. And you should see her stamp her little paws when playing with her foster brother Max - you could just die of cuteness overload!!! She knows how to use a dog door, is leash trained and will come (90% of the time) when called. With an open gate you need to watch her like a hawk as she will try to run past you for a walk about the neighborhood - Souffle 2, Humom 0. She is not a jogging buddy due to her old injuries but she loves a good walk where she can try to chase squirrels or cats. Yup she has high prey drive - no little critters in her future furever family. It would be great if she had some human or fur siblings to keep her company in her new home as she is very social - once she gets to know you. She would not do well with very Hyper Dogs or Children. If you need some good old Southern Lovin, Paw Stompin Cuteness then Miz Souffle is the lil' lady for you!!!! Click here to see her pictures on Facebook!


TUCKER2
Sex: Male
Age: 1 yr old (est 10/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE
NOTE: NO YOUNG KIDS, SMALL DOGS or CATS! Needs space to run or go running with a human and an experienced husky owner!

Meet Tucker! This handsome hound was rescued from a shelter, where he was running out of time. Now, he is hanging out with us until he finds a new home! Tucker is looking for a family who knows and understands the Husky breed! To learn more, see Dog's 101 at https://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/dogs-101/videos/siberian-husky.
This pretty boy is ALL athlete, and a true testament to his breed. He loves to run, and never tires so for those of you who are already on the trails, or looking to get off the couch more, this boy would make an excellent partner. He excels at just about anything including hiking, biking, trailing, swimming, and boating! He is ALL husky, and is your average build at around 50 lbs. He loves to talk, as most of his breed do, and enjoys engaging in adorable conversations that seem to turn pretty one sided near the end of it! He is extremely smart, and learns quickly! Though as they say, you can't outsmart a husky, they can be stubborn when they want to! Not to worry though, Tucker has manners and for the majority of the time, knows how to use them!
He gets along well with most dogs, but can be a typical jester. He can pick on them at times when the play is over, as most huskies do, but a game of tag, keep away or fetch always grabs his attention! As most of his breed, he can be over confident and driven so a home without cats would be best for Tucker, since prey drive is common with his breed. As for children, like most Huskies they enjoy children because they themselves are pretty childish in personality and nature. However, we prefer a home who has experience with this breed, as they can be mouthy in their play. So older children or those with breed experience, is preferred! Originally adopted 7/25/2016; returned 9/25/2016.Click here to view his pictures on Facebook!


WHITNEE
Sex: Female
Age: 2 years old (est 11/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: AVAILABLE
NOTE: Might be cat friendly!

This poor girl was found in Morgan, TX near Lake Whitney and no owners came forward after about 2 weeks. After we transported her she delivered 6 healthy puppies (4 boys, 2 girls) on 10/19/2016*. She is sweet and rides well in the vehicle. She is pretty laid back, house and crate trained. She's a bit aloof and doesn't really engage with humans except when she feels like it. She does like her daily walks! She prefers to be the only dog but co-exists with her furry foster siblings who she's a little growly but has never done anything more than low growls. She would be good for a human that just wants a furry companion but doesn't want any of the craziness of a typical husky or a needy one always wanting attention.
*The puppies have all been adopted! Click here to see her pictures as well as her puppies on Facebook!

STORMIE

Age: 11 yrs old (est 6/2016)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: Forever in our Hearts! 5/27/2017

Stormie is a super sweet, laid back senior (11yrs old) who found herself in doggie jail (HCPHES) about a month ago getting lost in the storms. Her owners didn't reclaim her (UGH!) so she was adopted despite being HW+! YAY! Unfortunately tho, it wasn't the right pack for her as the younger, more playful resident dogs didn't like her much and it was a bit chaotic with a young child too. We took her into rescue despite her age and high heartworm positive status! She is in a foster home with 2 other fur-kids, one of which is really showing her the ropes. She also isn't phased by the cats!! Yay!! She does have crate and separation anxiety. :-( 12/2016 she is now light HW+! Click here to view her pictures on Facebook!

NOTE: MUST HAVE stay-at-home humans!

Cato is a senior malamute (est 10-12yrs old) who loves being with humans!! He is an expert at escaping crates and opening closed doors and causing destruction! He has terrible separation anxiety so he would need a home with humans that like to stay home a lot! With a human at home, he is not destructive!! He is a big cuddle bug and really just needs a place to hang out and take naps! Click here to view his pictures on Facebook!

Sex: Female
Age: 1 yr old (est 5/2015)
Breed: Siberian Husky
Status: Forever in our Hearts! 10/27/2015

And sometimes, they completely break my heart. :-( Adorable little Asteria is in the beginning stages of liver failure. It's a congenital issue with her vessels and there is nothing medically or surgical that can be done to "fix" her. The problems with her liver have caused her to develop a serious case of e Coli as well as a blood clotting deficiency and an elevated level of ammonia in her blood. Because of the clotting deficiency, she will not undergo any kind of surgery including being spayed. She is on two medications to protect her liver, an antibiotic for the bacterial infection and one to remove the excess ammonia from her blood. Eventually, the medications will no longer be enough. The vets at A&M have said that she might have 6 months to a year to live, but that's always just a guess. The good news is that right now she feels awesome, has a good appetite, and her skin and coat are looking much better. Click here to see her pictures and progress on Facebook!
