PLEASE NOTE: Heartland Husky Rescue is 100% volunteer-run and foster-based. We do not have a facility where all the dogs are housed for you to visit. We do not adopt out of state, we do not ship our dogs and our dogs are meant to be pets, not working animals. All meet and greets are scheduled only after an application is submitted and approved, but you are welcome to meet any of our dogs at our various adoption events.
Our application approval process does include a home check and verification of your veterinary references. Unless otherwise stated on the dog's profile, if you live in an apartment or do not have a 5ft or taller fence around your yard, most huskies will not be a good fit. If you can not show proof of your current animals being up to date on vaccinations, heartworm prevention and on flea/tick prevention, there is a high likelihood that your application will be rejected. Exceptions are rare and made at the sole discretion of our board members, so please email us if you feel you fall into one of these groups.
We can’t believe everyone’s passed up on these girls’ growing puppy months! Here are the Big Bang Theory kids who were just 2 weeks old when we took in back in November of 2017 along with their mom.
In their time with us, they’ve grown up to be the sweetest little husky mixes, with all the sass and attitude of their husky mom and the markings from what we recently found out was their Mini Schnauzer/Cattle Dog mix dad.
Puppies should be the easiest to place, but these girls have watched their mom get adopted along with plenty of their friends, while they've had to wait over two years with hardly any attention at all.
More information on each girl is under their respective picture to the right. Their sister Penny has been adopted and is living her best life! :)

THE BIG BANG THEORY LITTER
Bernie is a happy go lucky little girl – just look at that smile! She wants everyone to love her as much as she can love them. She has a professional begging face, and knows her deep brown eyes can melt the coldest heart. She is the biggest of her three sisters and a sweet girl. Bernie is very affectionate, willing to learn and eager to please! She likes to snuggle up with a human, especially if there are treats in their vicinity. She loves staying active going on walks, swimming or her favorite, wrestling with her sisters. She is housebroken, uses a doggy door and is crate trained but would equally enjoy spending her nights snuggled up next to you in bed. She’s a good girl and takes correction well.
She’s cute and oh so sassy. She climbs trees trying to catch squirrels. She spars with her paws. She’ll pry your mouth open with her snaggle tooth for kisses. She’s faced death and come out on top. She’s our little wunderkind, Amy. She survived a broken upper jaw as well as an ensuing nasty infection at 8 weeks old that left her with a severe underbite, a snaggle tooth, and breathing that sounds like Darth Vader. None of that slows her down though as she lives her life to the fullest. She loves to play and but can be a little overwhelming and annoying to dogs of lower energy levels than hers. She is crate trained and house broken, does well on a leash and generally gets along with humans and dogs alike who can keep up with her.
Charlie is a 4 to 5 year old, spayed female husky mix. She wandered into our primary vet’s clinic and no one came to get her after serving her stray time in Midwest City Animal Shelter.
She is fully vaccinated, heartworm negative, and on prevention. Charlie is a sweet, happy dog who loves her foster brothers and begging for food. She is very treat motivated and trainable.
Charlie is great with kids, but unknown with cats. She is housebroken and knows a few commands, but needs work crate training (she's learning the ropes with her foster momma).
She is a digger, so she will be looking for someone who has a solid fenced in yard and is not opposed to the addition of hotline and/or their yard looking like the surface of the moon.

We love our honorary huskies here, and they don't come much cuter than Pip! It’s impossible to have a bad day with Pip around! He is an absolute little fluff ball of energy and happiness.
Pip is a 3 1/2 month old Mini Australian Shepherd that was born deaf and mostly blind. He does seem to see shadows/light and some things that are close, but his vision is definitely limited. These issues do not slow him down one bit though! He is a very typical puppy that will need someone who understands and is willing to learn to work with the challenges of having a deaf and blind dog.
Safety is a key concern since Pip can easily get himself in a dangerous spot. Therefore, it is recommended that Pip’s forever home not have an unfenced swimming pool, elevated decks, balconies, staircases, or other potentially dangerous obstacles.
Pip is a very smart boy and has already mastered the touch command for “sit” and he’s also learning a touch command for “come.” He is very good about going to the door when he needs to potty, but still has accidents every so often. He has learned to navigate his way around his foster home very well, adapting by using touch and smell. His fosters use mats as a tactile reminder of steps, doorways, etc.
Pip likes to play with other dogs, but his buddy will need to be very tolerant of a mouthy puppy who doesn’t necessarily know to stop when given typical warnings. He will also do best in a home with children over the age of 10 since he sometimes gets mouthy when playing with people too. Pip does not like to be crated or contained in small places, but his foster family is working on helping him with that. Right now, he has free roam of the (puppy-proofed) home at night and does great staying in his bed or sleeping on the floor. If you are looking to add a ray of sunshine to your day, please consider Pip!
