Winchester's Story...
Cute as a button and happy, happy, happy! Winchester is friendly with humans and large dogs, however definitely no cats nor small dogs. Most likely he would do best with another dog about his size, which is 55 lbs. Winchester needs to be taught basic manners. Right now he is an energetic pup, about 12 months old, who jumps up to greet you, whines when put in a crate, and will steal the food off the table. A daily routine with plenty of exercise and human patience, Winchester will quickly become an awesome companion. He seems to be house trained, so that's a big plus and he walks well on leash. Winchester cannot be trusted unsupervised in a home yet - he's still very much an energetic, active puppy.

Here's some additional information on Siberian Huskies:

Siberian Huskies have a zest for life that is unmatched by few breeds. Every time a Husky is outside, it's as if it's his first time and well into adulthood Huskies play with the vigor of a puppy. They may seem like a good family dog for first time dog owners, but Huskies can often be “too much dog” for a novice. They require extensive exercise in order maintain good behavior. Only those with the time and energy to fully commit to a Husky should consider adopting one. Siberian Husky owners agree: you get out of a Siberian Husky what you put into him, and they are well worth the effort.

Siberian Huskies need a lot of vigorous activity in order to maintain health and happiness. They were developed as sled dogs, which means they have plenty of energy and endurance. Adopting a Siberian Husky means adopting an active lifestyle. This breed enjoys long walks, hikes, jogs and bike rides. In the yard they can play fetch for hours, and some even like to play frisbee. That’s not to say they don’t relax, and can be good TV companions. Living with another dog is the best case scenario as they can play together and burn off some energy. However, remember, Huskies are notorious escape artists. They should not be left unattended outside, or the chances of them running off on a new adventure is a good possibility. They tend to "talk" quite a bit which is a consideration if you live in a home that has adjoining walls with a neighbor.

If you are interested in adopting, please email MalRescueDE@gmail.com for an application. Once your application is processed, a home visit is required. There is an adoption fee of $250 for each adult dog. Our dogs are healthy, spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, and heartworm negative.

Unfortunately rescues don't have the ability to hold dogs for adopters. Dogs are adopted to approved adopters on a first come, first serve basis. Our goal is to get a dog adopted to a forever home so that we can then help another one. If you are interested in one of our dogs, the first step is to request an application, which is typically sent to you the same day you have emailed your request. We process your application the day it is received. The next step is a home visit, and then you will be invited to meet the dogs. While we represent the State of Delaware, the majority of AMROD’s dogs are fostered in west-central Virginia. Contact preference is by email, malrescuede@gmail.com, rather than by phone. We appreciate you considering an AMROD dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Winchester, a Augusta County Siberian Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Siberian Husky for sale in Augusta County, or seeking a Siberian Husky dog from a breeder in Augusta County.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Augusta County already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
