My story

Breed: Wolfdog / Adoption fee is $150 / Sex: Neutered Male / Age: 2-3 yrs / Weight: 90 pounds 

IMPORTANT: Zion needs a home with Wolfdog experience. He is not a beginner pet. He is not a simple house dog; he will do best with a proper Wolfdog enclosure. Zion will do the wolfdog nips that is common to the breed. He and prefers women to men but currently has a male caretaker. Please help network him as our rescue is willing to get him anywhere in the US that is proper placement to save him and let him live his life in a proper setting. He is a beautiful, sweet boy that was let down by his previous humans when they abandon him when he became missing and was waiting for his people to find him in the shelter.  If you are interested, you also have to be familiar with your local Wolfdog ordinances. 

Hi my name is Zion, I found myself roaming the streets and ended up in animal control. I was a shelter favorite, but due to my breed they were unable to adopt me out to the public due to policies so they had to rely on a rescue to save me. But sadly there is not many places for a wolfdog to go. The rescue helping me scrambled and found a temporary foster for me to save my life. Now I need to find a forever home. I need a home that understands a wolfdog and has proper containment my beautiful self. I have the wolfdog traits and can be aloof and like to be sneaky and nip at times. I AM NOT A HOUSE PET, tight confinement for me causes stress and anxiety over time. The rescue that saved me will reduce my adoption fee for the proper home and there will be no adoption fee for a legit wolfdog rescue. I need out of the kennel run I am living in I need to be able to go be me.   

House Manners: Due to Zion's breed he has not been accessed as a house dog. He has destructive traits of a wolfdog and will try to break out of the common wire dog crate.

Basic Training: Zion will pull you along on a leash and I believe knows sit. Zion needs to be kenneled for car rides. (42 inch crate) 

Other Dogs: Zion had brief interaction around some dogs and done fine. He also has some dogs near his kennel he has adjusted to. 

Cats: Did not test and do not recommend cats or small prey around him for safety.

Kids: Unknown not tested and not recommended around kids younger then a teenager.

Fencing: Thankfully Zion don't seem to have the intense desire to escape and respects a 6ft fence. He was found stray and that is what led to the shelter to begin with. Zion's temperament makes him a better candidate for a wolfdog enclosure and not a house pet.

The adoption fee is $150.This dog has had its age-appropriate Vaccinations brought up to date with Rabies shot (4 m & older), heartworm tested (4 m & older) and/or started on prevention, basic de-wormer, spayed or neutered and microchipped with free registration.

Important PLEASE read if interested in adoption:

We have a pretty open adoption policy, apartments, unfenced yards, and young kids are okay, but only if the pet you are interested in is a good fit for that situation!!! Some dogs may require a fence of a certain type and height, due to safety, the breed or known history. We are looking for pet parents that provide vet care such as routine vaccines for their pets and heartworm prevention for dogs. Please understand we do cross check vet references and landowners/landlord policies and cannot process applications with incomplete or incorrect information.

We asked that you take your newly adopted dog for a vet exam in the first 30 days to establish with your vet and obtain their heartworm prevention prescriptions and have a fecal exam administered as some pets may need additional de-womer after leaving our care.

Why adoption is a great option

Zion, a Oklahoma City Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Oklahoma City, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Oklahoma City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oklahoma City 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.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oklahoma City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oklahoma City paves the way for another one to be saved.
