found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Sadie is a beautiful creamy-white 8-year-old, spayed female Husky, Low Content Wolfdog. She is not very big, about 45 lbs. now but at her perfect weight she is 55lbs.
Her coat is luxurious and soft, she is curious and when she is happy and comfortable she is beautifully house-trained. At Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue she played with her male canine companion, Muraco, and loved being with him.
Sadie is very shy with certain men so we are looking for a single woman who is calm, patient and understands sweet Sadie. Once she gets to know you she will allow you to pet her and put a harness on her and soon she will want cuddles, brushing and lots of affection. A woman who is self employed, works at home or retired would be perfect for this beautiful girl. If you have an older male companion for her to hang with that would be ok too.
In September 2013, Sadie tore both her ACLs and is healing nicely, but she cannot roughhouse with a young and playful canine companion. She is fine if left alone in the yard or deck for a few hours once she bonds with you. Sadie is a little shy with new people while out walking but will go up for a sniff and greet. Indoors she is curious and will sometimes come up to visitors and hang out close by and if you are lucky, she will allow newcomers to pet her.
She walks nicely on a leash/harness and loves to go for hikes in the woods and creeks where she is most comfortable, relaxed and happy. She loves our picnics and she often takes a nap after a nice hike. With a patient and calm handler she responds very well.
It would take about 3 weeks for Sadie to settle in at a new home with real adjustment in a few months. With a regular routine she becomes more and more comfortable every day and is very well behaved albeit a bit nervous with loud noises, shouting, and quick movements.
Sadie is fine with kids that are calm and allow her to approach them, and she is loves our 11-year-old grandson. She lets him brush her as well as leash and walk her... but we will adopt Sadie into a home without small children, small dogs or cats - i.e. a calm and quite environment.
She is much more comfortable with women, but ok with calm, gentle men (she has a male dogsitter!). She is be good with other dogs when introduced properly on a walk. We need to find a home for Sadie right away as her Foster Mom has left for Europe. It would be nice for her to have a home with another woman who loves her like her Foster Mom does.
Sadie loves to come inside and be with you especially in the evenings to watch TV and likes to have someone around a lot. Sadie LOVES to watch wolves on TV! Presently she sleeps in the bedroom all night and is allowed to come and go to a deck through a slider.
Sadie needs a secure fenced yard and the option to sleep in or outdoors, and would love a doggie door! A patient and gentle owner would make milestones with this sweetie. Sadie is submissive with humans and is not aggressive at all and will run away from you when anxious or scared so she is an escape risk for the first few months until she settles in.
