You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Southern Siberian Rescue is a volunteer based 501(c)3 organization so we do not have a physical facility with operating hours that you can visit to meet our dogs. All of our foster dogs are in our personal homes. You need to fill out our adoption application and get approved to adopt and then we will set a time for you to meet our foster dogs. As a volunteer based group, we all have jobs, family, personal dogs and other commitments but we try to acknowledge and process applications as quickly as we can. That being said, we try to keep our available foster dogs as current as we can but it is time consuming to get pics and information on new dogs so not all of our dogs are listed at all times so please fill out our app and then we can discuss dogs that will work for you and your situation. We average 40 Siberians in our program so we are certain we have one that will work for you. Please know that we are not obligated to answer inquiries on dogs as we will focus on processing approved applicants. Again, there is ample time to discuss all of our foster dogs AFTER we have an approved application on file. We do adopt out of state but we ask that you, your family and existing pets make the trip to NC to meet and adopt our foster dogs. 


Name: Bobtail

Sex: Male

Approx. DOB: July 2005
Weight: Approx. 85 lbs.
Coat Color: White
Eye Color: Blue
Energy Level: Medium to low. Bobtail isn't a huge player with his foster siblings but he loves to hang outside with everyone.
Personality: Bobtail and Winnie were pulled from a back yard breeder situation in Greenville SC. He was so flea infested, he ate his own tail off, hence the name. He and Winnie would be a great pair to adopt together if you are considering two dogs. Bobtail is about the perfect dog. He is a little timid and shy at first meet and may take some time to warm up to his people. He is also a bit head shy. He has perfect house manners and is so good, you barely even know he's around. He does love to gather towels and put in his crate. He doesn't chew them, he just likes their company!
Good with Dogs: Yes but not really a huge player.
Good with Cats: Not tested but probably not as Siberians are notorious for their high prey drive and typically kill cats, rabbits, birds, chickens, squirrels, opossums, etc.
Good with Children: Siberians are typically good with children of all ages and the only reason we would not list them as not good with kids is because they may be too energetic and bouncy and knock over a toddler.
House Trained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes and he actually enjoys laying in it often.
Rides Well in Car: Yes
Leash Trained: Bobtail does pull on leash.
Basic Obedience: Bobtail does know sit, shake with both paws and down. During his time at Nash Correctional, they taught him to run through the gym, up the stairs, across the landing, open the door and run down the stairs to his kennel all on the command 'home'!!!

Southern Siberian Rescue is based out of Raleigh, NC and serve SE states only (NC, SC, VA, WV, KY, GA, TN) due to our required home check that is part of our review process. We will try to serve other areas, only if there is no comparable Siberian Rescue or Siberian in your area. If we have a volunteer in your area that can do a home check for us, we will ask that you be prepared to drive to Raleigh, NC to meet the foster dog of interest. You will need to bring all of you existing pets and immediate family members to meet our dogs. We need to know that it is a good match for all involved. For local adopters, we will bring the foster dog(s) of interest to you at the home check.

SSR can not and will not hold dogs for anyone. We can’t. If we do, that means another Siberian will die in a shelter because a shelter dogs time is very limited, as is our foster space. We do our best to process applications in the order received and first application gets first interest in our foster dog(s). We understand that there will be scheduling conflicts with home checks and meet and greets with our foster homes and foster dogs and we will accommodate for that if a potential adopter has interest in a particular foster dog in our program.

About Southern Siberian Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Southern Siberian Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers responsibly rescuing Siberian Huskies in need throughout North Carolina and surrounding states. Our sole purpose and priority is to help unwanted, misunderstood, abandoned or neglected Siberians find homes. We do this by providing needed health care, rehabilitation and training for all our foster dogs and carefully screening potential adopters. The Siberian Husky is not a breed for everyone and adopters need to understand this breed and all of its quirks and beauty. We also spend a great deal of time educating potential owners and the public about the Siberian Husky, their special requirements, temperament, personalities and traits. We promote the importance of adopting from a reputable rescue or working with a responsible breeder when inviting a Siberian to your home. If you chose not to rescue, please contact us at on how to find a reputable breeder. With so many homeless Siberians and Siberians facing death in shelters, it goes without saying that we are serious advocates on spay and neutering your pets. Not only is it the responsible thing to do, it is the right thing to do medically. Statistics show that unaltered females have a higher risk of mammary cancer and unaltered males are a higher risk for testicular cancer. PLEASE love your pets and spay or neuter them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Southern Siberian Rescue has volunteers across the state of North Carolina that foster our dogs in their personal homes. We do not have a facility that you can visit. Please email us at to find out how to meet the dogs. You can also visit our Events Calendar at to find out where we will be with the foster dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

To begin our adoption process, please fill out our adoption application at, under How to Adopt. We check both vet reference on existing pets and personal references. A homecheck is mandatory, whether it is done by one of our volunteers and you come meet our foster dogs or we bring the foster dog that you are interested in to you. We do this to be sure it's a good fit for all involved, not to see if your house is clean or not. We strive to provide a happy, loving, permanent home for our foster dogs.

Our adoption fee is $250, which helps offset the cost of veterinary care. All foster dogs are adopted out healthy, up to date on vaccines, spay or neutered, microchipped, on monthy heartworm preventative and Frontline and a limited slip collar.
