Facts about Nakaya

  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

This Beautiful girl name is Nakaya she is 6 years old, It’s with great sadness that we have to rehome our Siberian/Malamute Husky. Nakaya needs a home where she can get the attention and space she deserves without other dogs, cats and young children.
Nakaya was adopted from the SPCA three years ago, where she was on her last strike do to many families returning her, Nakaya is high energized and has a lot of trust issues that I am to this day working on with her. Over the three years of having Nakaya she has come a long way. We are still working on a few things with her, Nakaya has separation anxiety when she is left alone that can result in things getting chewed or even destroyed.
When I adopted Nakaya I was a single man with two other male huskies in the home. I brought her home with full intention of giving her a forever home. Knowing she had the issues she did. Life turned when I met my girlfriend, her two kids and her husky. Everyone got along for the most part.
Nakaya is very nervous when someone is stepping near or over her. She lets out little growls. She is extremely sensitive to touch in certain areas of her body. (Examples; has said above does not like to be step near, does not like to be touched in the hip areas, and also does not like to be touch in the neck collar area.)
The reason being that we need to rehome our dog is for safety reasons. A couple months ago she started resources guarding when my girlfriend was in the last month of her pregnancy and became aggressive towards our other dog in the home. Now that we have an infant and two other children in the home, and Nakaya still wanting to hurt the other dog, we have to keep them separated at all times.
Nakaya is spayed and shots are up to date. If you like to meet her and think you have what it takes to give her the life you deserve. Please feel free to send my girlfriend a message via Facebook or send her an email at
Please serious inquiries only, we will be interviewing potential new families. And will be doing visit to the home randomly, to make sure she has what she deserves.
Thank you!

About S.H.A.R.P. Siberian Husky Assistance and Rescue Program

About Our Rescue Group...

S.H.A.R.P. Awareness

The Siberian Husky Assistance and Rescue Program (S.H.A.R.P.) is an organization dedicated to the health, welfare and happiness of Siberian Huskies. By working with animal shelters, rescue groups, dog owners and the general public, our goals are:

To offer advice to owners about the proper care and ownership of Siberian Huskies
To provide education and information about the Siberian Husky breed
To assist with the rescue of Siberian Huskies

Advice. The membership of S.H.A.R.P. consists of owners and breeders of Siberian Huskies. Our members have a wealth of knowledge about the behavior, training and care needed for the breed. We are eager to offer our experience to help others enjoy the company of their pet. In addition, we have access to a wide variety of information and expertise, including the Siberian Husky Club of Canada, the Canadian Kennel Club and several international organizations. We want people and their Siberians to have long, happy lives together.
Education. The Siberian Husky is a beautiful and noble breed. They are often seen in movies, television and advertisements. Unfortunately this exposure can and has led to problems. People want to own a Siberian because of their beauty and the behavior seen in these controlled situations. They do not realize the time and effort needed to work with a Siberian in order to achieve these goals. Similar problems occurred with the Dalmatian and Saint Bernard breeds with the movies “101 Dalmatians” and “Beethoven”. S.H.A.R.P. cares about the image and myths that exist about the Siberian Husky breed. We want to ensure people understand the Siberian Husky.
Rescue. Although we hope that through advice and education, all Siberian Huskies and their owners will enjoy a lifetime together, in reality this does not always happen. When all else fails, S.H.A.R.P. works on the rescue, rehabilitation and relocation of a Siberian Husky in distress. We help local shelters and humane societies rescue neglected or mistreated Siberian Huskies. We also use this network and other contacts to return lost Siberians to their owners. And we work with these organizations and the general public to find new homes for Siberians.
S.H.A.R.P. members receive no salaries for their work. All our members donate their time because of their love of the breed. However, Siberian Huskies, which come under our care, frequently require extra medical and nutritional assistance. S.H.A.R.P. would welcome your donation to help our efforts. If financial assistance is not possible, contributions towards our auctions will be accepted.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is similar to other rescues. The first step is to fill out our adoption application. After we have reviewed it and discussed amongst ourselves, a home visit will need to be scheduled. After the home visit (sometimes at the same time if local to the dog of interest), a meet and greet will be scheduled with your whole family and your pets. After the meet and greet, you may pick up your dog from their foster home, sign the contract, and pay the adoption fee! We do not adopt dogs over 6 months of age to homes with cats.
