Facts about Forest

  • Breed: Siberian Husky Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Forest is a young, male husky mix. We estimate his age to be 1-2 years old. He's a little guy, only weighing 36 pounds. Forest is black and white with brown eyes. He came to MUSHR from a sled dog owner where he was strictly an outside dog so he has been getting used to inside living at his foster home! He also didn't have proper socialization, so he's very timid and shy. Forest is making great strides, but he will need a calm, patient home to help him come out of his shell. We also will require dog training classes for at least 6 months for Forest so he can work more on socializing.
Forest is a rare husky find because he is great with cats and other dogs. He has not been around small children, but they may be too scary for him. Forest is very gentle and sweet. He loves to be petted if you approach him, and his foster home has even seen some tail wagging which means he is getting more comfortable with people! Forest likes hanging in his crate where he's comfortable, any home will need to have a crate for him. He is housebroken and is learning to walk on the leash, which he enjoys like any other husky! We haven't been able to teach Forest to sit yet, he still needs to build trust, but he is a smart dog and we are confident he will be able to learn commands. If you think your can give this shy boy a great life, please contact MUSHR!

About MUSHR (Minnesota's Unwanted Siberian Husky Rescue)

About Our Rescue Group...

MUSHR is asked to take in dogs from a variety of sources, including humane societies, animal controls, other rescues and from owners wishing to surrender their dog.

MUSHR dogs have all been evaluated for temperament, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, Heartworm tested, and micro-chipped. They are also given any other medical attention they may need, such as orthopedic surgeries, Heartworm treatment and emergency care.

MUSHR is not a shelter; it is a foster based rescue. Our goal of placing dogs is accomplished through the hard work of dedicated volunteers. The volunteers foster unwanted Siberian huskies in their homes until the dog gets placed into the adoptive home.

MUSHR volunteers have extensive knowledge of not only Siberian huskies, but also general pet care. Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds including dog trainers, veterinary technicians and animal lovers.

Our Adoption Process...

MUSHR's adoption process helps ensure that the best possible match between dog and future adoptive family takes place. The process includes:

1. Initial Information: When you first express interest in adopting a MUSHR dog, we ask for some information about you, your family, your current pets and your lifestyle. This background information assists us in determining which MUSHR dog is the best fit for you. We also request in this initial stage that you review and understand the basic characteristics of a Siberian husky which is located in "Breed Information/Characteristics."

2. Interview: After review of your initial information a volunteer will contact you to discuss which dog best matches your lifestyle. This interview also gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have about the breed as well as about the dog you are specifically interested in meeting.

3. First Meeting: After the interview we set up a meeting with you and the foster dog. This meeting typically takes place at the foster home, where the foster dog is most comfortable. This meeting is to see how you and the dog match one-on-one and gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have for the foster family. MUSHR recommends that small children and other dogs not be introduced until the second meeting. After the first meeting, we ask the interested family to take the day to think about and discuss as a family the decision of whether to continue the process and potentially adopt the dog. If you decide to proceed with the adoption process then a second meeting is scheduled.

4. Second Meeting: The second meeting typically takes place at the adoptive home. This meeting is to see how the dog interacts in the potential new home, including with any resident pets and/or smaller children. This meeting also allows the adoptive family to ask additional questions of the foster family. If the second meeting goes well then we can proceed with the adoption of the MUSHR dog at the second meeting.
5. Adoption donation: When the adoption takes place (typically at the second meeting) MUSHR asks for an adoption donation. This donation helps MUSHR offset the costs of foster care, veterinary services and any other medical treatment. The adoption fee is $350 for dogs under 9 months and $250 for dogs 9 months and older.

6. Adoption contract: When the adoption takes place MUSHR has you complete the adoption contract. MUSHR gives you a copy of the MUSHR dog's medical records and MUSHR's adoption guidelines. The guidelines provide some useful information and suggestions about dog care.

7. New Home: Throughout the life of a MUSHR dog the volunteers will always be available to provide assistance. If you have any questions or need training tips a MUSHR volunteer will be available to help. If you need a dog-sitter for your adopted MUSHR dog, you may contact MUSHR who will then try to find an available dog sitter.

MUSHR's adoption process is in place to make sure the best possible match is made between dog and future owner. If you have any questions or are interested in adopting please call or email us at
