Meet your future furever pup!

Our Adoptable Dogs

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.

 

MANON

Her Story

Manon, affectionately referred to as Nonny, has been with us for a while now since she was a teeny puppy. She showed up as a puppy with some neurological issues that caused her to have left sided circling, nystagmus, and a little unstable on her feet. Though we are unsure what caused those neurological issues, she has made considerable progress since we first met her and has become quite the beautiful, playful and affectionate girl thanks to her foster mom’s love.

 

Manon is now about a year old and still occasionally exhibits slight instability, but for the most part her symptoms are under control. Nothing however has been able to stop her from being a happy, hyper, and curious kid though. She is a sweet puppy that could do well in almost any home setting as long as she has an involved, loving owner to keep an eye on her.

 

Manon is probably a husky/shepherd mix based on her personality and traits. She is still very much a puppy and loves to play and chew on every toy in her toy basket. We don’t really predict Manon becoming an escape artist but she could potentially display typical husky traits, including digging or jumping, so a secured yard is preferred. We can not predict how her medical condition and ongoing needs will progress in the future, but at this point she is fully vetted and ready to find a furever home for herself!

Their Story

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.

KEIRA

Her Story

Keira was surrendered to the shelter after lashing out at a child, possibly as a result of untreated chronic pain from arthritis. With time running out, we decided to give her a chance, even at the ripe old age of 11. 

She gets along with most dogs and humans, but has gotten territorial over food with another female. As a result of both of these incidents, we would prefer to place Keira as an only dog, in a home without very young children. 

Keira is an older girl and so may not be as active or high energy as your typical husky, but still shows plenty of strength on-leash and a desire to explore.

LUCY

Her Story

Lucy is believed to be around three years old. She is a husky mix and one of our newer intakes. She did not have the easiest of lives before we took her in.

 

Her previous owners used her to breed puppies that they likely sold to turn a profit, took her pups away from her, and abandoned her to fend for herself. She was left alone in the home they abandoned, skinny yet still showing signs of having had a recent litter.

 

In spite of her ordeals, she is very well behaved and loves her human and furry foster family and would do well in most homes.

 

We were moved by the first pictures we saw of her, and had to reach out to help. We thought her troubles were over once we had her in the rescue’s care, but unfortunately, she did test positive for heartworms. The treatment is lengthy and expensive, but she is in the best possible foster home to give her plenty of love as she recovers.

 

She is progressing well, and Lucy should be available to go to a new home soon, but we will be taking applications for her at this time. We will consider allowing her to be adopted out sooner than that for approved adopters who are willing to work with her need for low-stress rest for 4-6 weeks after her final treatment.

PRIM

Her Story

Prim was picked up off the side of a highway in OKC with a broken leg and taken to a local vet. She was never reclaimed by her owners and with her finder unable to take on the medical expenses she was sure to rack up, we stepped in to help.

 

She is a sweet girl, but she has had to put up with having to wear a cast for the last couple of months as we tried to fix and save her leg. She’s lost her sense of humor a few times, and hasn’t hesitated to let her foster mom hear all about it as she used her cast as a club. Prim is now out of her cast, but still not completely out of the woods too. Unfortunately for her, she also tested positive for heartworms and has to undergo a fairly aggressive treatment for that.

 

Prim has needed to be activity limited for her leg, and now will need to continue that way during her heartworm treatment, much to her frustration and our own, but she should be available for adoption soon. We will begin considering applications for her with a view to eventual adoption, but only very well suited homes will be looked at for immediate placement before the completion of her treatment.

CODY

His Story

Cody is a two year old husky looking for his forever home. He gets along with other dogs his size and bigger but he does have an active prey drive so smaller animals aren’t his friend.

 

He does well with children and has been very gentle with the kids in his foster home. He is fully crate trained and basically house trained after a few accidents. If you have something good he will sit for a treat. All around he’s a pretty great dog and easy to care for.

 

He would do great in almost any home setting but his ideal home would have a tall and secure fence, no cats or other small animals, and an active family that wants an inside FRIEND (preferably with children since he adores them)

 

•He enjoys long walks around the neighborhood, swimming in filthy water, hotdogs, cheese, and car rides when he can sit up front.

 

•Things he does not enjoy- Vacuums, the mail man, and being told “leave the cats alone”.

JEKYLL

His Story

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde were pulled from a local shelter where, as Owner Surrenders in a very full shelter, they were running out of time and needed to get out urgently. We were able to find fosters to care for them on short notice, along with a volunteer who offered to transport them to us. They have both been neutered, microchipped and tested negative for heartworms, and gotten their necessary shots.

 

Jekyll and Hyde have both lived their entire lives on the end of a chain, and their owners considered them disposable. Hyde has some damage to his ears from flies, but is receiving treatment. He also displays some evidence of having been mistreated in his past with a fear of new people. He does tend to warm up quickly and is pretty vocal as well.

 

We will not allow them to go back to living their lives as lawn ornaments. In spite of their past and their beginnings, they are both very sweet boys who are looking for a chance at a normal life, with a home and family that will love and cherish them.

We were able to find fosters to care for them on short notice, along with a volunteer who offered to transport them to us. They have both been neutered, microchipped and tested negative for heartworms, and gotten their necessary shots.

 

Jekyll and Hyde have both lived their entire lives on the end of a chain, and their owners considered them disposable. Jekyll is a happy dog who smiles broadly to show his pleasure at being out of the shelter and showered with love. He has acclimated to his foster pack pretty well and does well with other dogs and even cats. He would fit most homes, but will need a secure yard and 6ft fence.

 

We will not allow them to go back to living their lives as lawn ornaments. In spite of their past and their beginnings, they are both very sweet boys who are looking for a chance at a normal life, with a home and family that will love and cherish them.
