Facts about Everest

  • Breed: Husky Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10565186

Everest is a handsome 2-year-old Husky / Shepherd mix who was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Houston. He's an affectionate boy who loves to keep busy - he'd love to join an active family who will enjoy having him along for walks, hikes and other outdoor adventures! When he's not on-the-go, Everest is very affectionate and would love to settle in for a cuddle on your lap.   Everest's basic training is still a work and progress, and additional obedience training is recommended to help with his tendency to get anxiously distracted and desire to go, go, go.

Foster Update: Everest has done great at dog parks --  he gets along with other dogs and is very playful. He doesn't jump on people and comes when he's called. He can frustrate other male dogs because he doesn't listen to their "enough" cues. His demeanor is always friendly, though. We have taken him hiking several times. He was okay running ahead with my 2 dogs.   I watched him for a bit to see if he'd stick with the dogs or go exploring. He had no interest in exploring, just wanted to be part of the pack, so I let him be off leash. He is fantastic off leash. He does not have a high prey drive, does not run off and comes when he's called. He has hiked over 7 miles with me, my husband and 2 dogs. The dogs got way more exercise than we did because they spent a lot of time running around. Everest is very good about checking on his people and doesn't get too far ahead. That hike finally seemed to tire him.  He is learning a few commands. He knows 'sit' and 'down' but needs more practice with 'down.'  He is also learning 'settle' and can do that quite well. He learns quickly and is very treat motivated.  At home he is settling in. He may not be entirely housebroken, he has pottied inside a few times. I now personally take him into the backyard to invite him to pee on the grass periodically and that seems to help. I think he gets it now.  He is still learning his place within my dog pack. He can play too much and annoy them. We have had success in showing him boundaries by using vinegar/water spray bottle. We just have to show it to him and he gets the message pretty quick.  He doesn't always know the difference between toys and our furniture and clothing, so he can't be left in the house without supervision.  He has some issues with mouthing. He will mouth at your hand if you try to take something out of his mouth. So if he grabs a sock, for example, and we try to get it back, he will give warning mouths. We now try to offer him something else and get him to drop the item on his own. He also bit me when I went to add a treat to his bowl while he was eating. He thought I was going to take his food, so his reaction is understandable but not okay. He will need training for that.

Adoption Fee: $595 - Includes spay/neuter, DA2PP shots, Rabies, Bordetella, Deworm, heart worm test, grooming, microchip, boarding fees, health certificate and transport cost from Texas to Seattle. This adoption fee not only contributes to this dog's rescue and care, but of hundreds of other high-risk dogs every year.

About Ginger's Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is one of the largest non-profit pet rescue organizations in Washington state, and we specialize in saving Death Row Dogs. Our mission is to give homeless animals with no hope the life they deserve through rescue, foster and adoption. We rely on a large network of fosters in the Seattle area, who provide our dogs with love and care during transition from rescue to adoption. We do not have a physical shelter location; to meet the dogs in our rescue, contact us to connect with a foster or join us at an adoption event!

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We rely solely on the support from adoption fees and donations to help us provide for the ~100+ dogs in our rescue at any given time.

How We Rescue

We take in dogs from local families in need, in state and out of state shelters, and we also work with overseas rescue groups on occasion. We do not discriminate – we rescue dogs small and big, old and young, healthy and sick, purebred and Heinz 57! Our belief is that every dog deserves a forever home.
Our History

Ginger’s Pet Rescue was founded in 2006 by Ginger Luke after saving one Dachshund’s life turned into a life-long endeavor. The organization is dedicated to providing great care for our dogs and adoption efforts!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to or submit via our Contact Form on our website. This application will allow us to know more about your family, what kind of pet will fit best and your home, and whether you will be a good match for one of our dogs. Please include the dog(s) you are interested in on the application. We review applications upon receipt and will reply as soon as possible, usually within 1-2 days.

Adoption fees range from $300-$700 depending on a number of the factors, and adoption fees are what allow us to continue our rescue, as our primary source of funding.

If for any reason the dog does not work out, we are willing to take the dog back and refund your adoption fee less a $100 rehoming fee.
