Story
** ARIZONA ONLY ** Maizy was found by a very nice lady through NextDoor. Maizy was a one-year old Chihuahua rescue who someone needed to re-home. Emaciated and unsure but with a spark of hope in her eyes, Maizy stood in the yard ready to meet her new owner who was immediately in love. Though the cute little pup didn’t resemble a Chihuahua, she was small, weighing 11 lbs at just a year old. However, when Maizy’s new mama took her to the vet, he said she was not a Chihuahua and was a very young pup who would likely grow to be 30 pounds. Within one month, Maizy gained 9 pounds. She is now “really” a year old and weighs 36 pounds. She may have just a wee bit of filling out to do but will probably stay near her current and perfect medium size. Maizy has worked with a dog trainer; she did well and knows basic commands. A DNA test was done and it turns out Maizy is primarily Siberian Husky, as well as several other herding breeds! While not at all the dog this upper-middle-young-aged lady wanted to adopt, she loved Maizy and was going to try to make it work in spite of having a small patio-sized yard that would be perfect for a Chihuahua 😊 Recently, Mama took Maizy for a walk, tripped on the leash, and now requires wrist surgery. With this, and the realization that Maizy needs exercise and activity and a yard where she can run and enjoy some outdoor time, her mama is reluctantly seeking a new home for Maizy. This beautiful young and healthy girl is funny, energetic, playful, and very smart. She can be just a little bit shy initially but learns to trust and is happy to be part of the family. She would do well in a home with an active person or family who has time for her, and would also do well with another dog. Maizy is fully vetted – spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. We can set up a meet & greet upon approved application. Please email to request one.

Story
Meet Nala! She’s had quite a bumpy journey the first two years of her life, and she’s hoping to find her perfect forever home now. Nala came to us with her mom and two siblings as an 8-week old puppy in 2021 from Clovis, NM. Nala was adopted shortly after joining us and remained with that family for 1.5+yrs. She grew up with other dogs and kids, but somehow still was not socialized well and became extremely fearful when she left the house. She still has quite a bit of lingering anxiety even now. Her family continued to add small pets and Nala, being the largest dog and not well-adjusted, suffered. We had tried to work with them multiple times over the 1.5yrs when we abruptly received a message one night that they would  put Nala down if we did not take her back immediately, giving us less than 24hrs to do so. One of our longtime fosters stepped up and took her back in right away, though she proved to be more of a challenge than we anticipated. This foster family made it work for a while with their other dogs in the home, but ultimately after a lot of time and effort we have determined that Nala truly does need to be the only pet in the home. The biggest behavioral issue that Nala has likely stems from her very understandable fear of abandonment. She honestly just loves her human too much - and when she falls for someone, she falls hard. She doesn’t share attention with other dogs well, and she struggles to trust new people. She doesn't have any major behavioral issues in the home though - she kennels well if you want to kennel her, but she doesn't really need it. She won't destroy your stuff. She really just wants to please! She's a wonderful human companion for the right person - she's looking for someone who doesn't have people over a ton. She's ok with someone who works, but she'd really prefer if the hours aren't too terribly long. She is the most devoted dog you will find who just loves to hike and play fetch with tennis balls. Be ready to share your pillow! She is definitely a cuddle bug. Nala was adopted again very briefly and lived in a home with no other dogs, but with cats - she did ok for the most part, but the adopter did feel wary about her behavior around the cats several times and said she thinks it's best if she is a completely only pet at this point. She was returned due to life changes, moving out of state to reconcile a marriage, on the adopter's part and not due to any failure of Nala in the home - her adopter loved her very much and struggled with this decision but knew she would not integrate well with other dogs in a new state. Nala is unfortunately back in boarding now and she would really even just love a foster home in the meantime while she waits for her forever home. She needs a unicorn home, so obviously this makes her a difficult sell! Please apply if you think you may be the right fit for this sweet girl - we know her human is out there. https://azhuskyrescue.com/adoption-application/

Story
Jameson was saved from the e-list at MCACC where he was listed for fear. He ended up showing some uncertain behavior related to this fear in his foster home, and we decided a board and train program to try to figure him out would have the best chance of setting him up for success in the future. We were originally led to believe that Jameson was 5 years old, but after his vet visit and time with our trainer, we now believe he is closer to 3. His teeth are not great, but this is actually because he had distemper as a puppy and was one of the very lucky few to survive this deadly disease. Having bad teeth and some neurological side effects – like his tongue sticking out a little bit – are just remnants of the disease that will be with him through the rest of his life. Understanding his background with this disease has also helped us to understand his behaviors a great deal more, and hopefully will help us find just the right adopter for the rest of his life. After all he has been through, he deserves that much! Jameson has a lot of puppy-like tendencies, and a few oddities that will make him a unique and lovable companion for the right person. In true husky form, he is high-energy, active and enjoys playing with other dogs and toys, though he does have a shorter attention span. He does well with the other large dogs and he likes running up and down the fence with his neighbors’ smaller dog. In what is likely another neurological side effect, he does not do the best with stairs, though he still tries his best! He has improved greatly with leash pulling through his board and train, but will need continued reinforcement over time. As much as he loves walks and running around, he has not shown any desire to escape his fenced-in yard. Jameson had a resource-guarding bite incident prior to going to his board and train, and our trainer believe this was from him having little respect for boundaries and expecting he could always get his way. He has been very receptive to training and seems to always want to do the right thing if he knows what that is according to our trainer. There have not been any further incidents since his training and his fosters are continuing to work with him, stating that he has improved greatly. Jameson loves food and treats, so positive reinforcement works great for him. In what is another neurological side effect, he has depth perception issues that are most noticeable when giving him treats flat-handed from a palm. His trainer left us with some very helpful notes on him at the conclusion of his training: "Jameson is a super sweet and funny boy that tries to do things right. His future owner just needs to be patient because the neurological damage is definitely a bit of a handicap at times. I know Jameson knows the commands but I do give him time to put his body in the right, most comfortable position. So, he might not fall down the instant I ask him to lay down or sit but he is obeying and I can tell he tries. He gets distracted easily but all it takes it a little reminder, a second command, and he is back in business. Jameson has never tried to be a brat or very sassy. He took a little longer in the beginning to “warm up” but all the changes these dogs have to deal with is tough on them. I was proud of him today and how he listened on the trail." Though Jameson does have a shy side, he is also very sweet. When he finds his person, he becomes very attached. He has done well around the teenagers in his foster home, and he happily meets strangers. He’s a talkative dude who sings the husky song, especially around people and cars. Jameson would love to find an active family to call his own. A home with one or more other active dogs would be ideal as an outlet for his energy. If you’re looking for a sweet, fun-loving adventure buddy, Jameson is your guy! Fill out an application today to meet this big fluffy boy. https://azhuskyrescue.com/adoption-application/

Story
Meet Buckeye! This big (70+ lb) husky mix was another pull from the euthanasia list at the Maricopa County shelter. Buckeye was placed on the e-list simply because he was scared in the shelter environment. He was frozen and shut down, refusing to walk on a leash and even eat hot dogs. Luckily, he was given a second chance by one of our amazing fosters. Like many fearful huskies, he has started to come out of his shell now that he’s in a safe, quiet home. When he was fresh out of the shelter, Buckeye was very shy and indifferent to the two other dogs in his foster home. But within a week or so, he started going up to the females in the home to seek out attention. He now plays well with the other dogs and even enjoys playing with toys! He does still get scared easily if he is touched on his neck, especially around males. However, he is making great progress and allowing himself to be pet more every day. So far, Buckeye has displayed medium energy. He will alternate between playing with the other dogs and staying to himself. He does not seem to rely on the other dogs for cues or pack habits. He has grumbled at other dogs if they approach one particular bowl he likes, but he does not bark, show teeth, or otherwise act aggressively. He responds well to verbal correction. We believe that Buckeye is still adjusting to life in a loving home and will continue to improve as he learns to trust. As he becomes more comfortable, his fosters plan to work on harnessing and walking on leash, as those are areas where he continues to be fearful. Although Buckeye was dealt a tough hand in life, he has so much love to give. He loves treats and belly rubs. His personality is starting to show, and he’s a smiley boy who enjoys attention from people he trusts. He has done well with the teenagers in his foster home and even does well in a crate. We do think he would be most suited for a calmer home, with mellow dogs or as an only dog. We also recommend caution around young children, not because of any aggression, but because he can still be jumpy around quick movements or people walking towards him. Like so many huskies we see, Buckeye was truly just not meant to live in a shelter. With some time and patience, we are confident he will learn to trust people and show his real self.

Story
Meet Khione! Khione was found as a stray with her puppy, Eros. They were picked up exiting the 51 by a good Samaritan who kept them in her yard for a while before transferring them into our care. They seemed to prefer being outside at their finder’s home, so we believe that they have lived outdoors for most of their lives. However, that didn’t stop Khione from calmly and easily settling into her new foster home. Khione’s fosters describe her as having low to medium energy. After a few small scuffles with one young dog early on, she gets along well with the other dogs in the home. She has not been particularly playful because she seems to be more concerned about guarding her puppy, who will try to join in when the other dogs are playing. However, once she is separated from her pup, she is able to let her guard down and relax. Despite her concern for her puppy, she is very intuitive and kind. She takes care of her older foster sibling, a 16-year-old cocker spaniel, and shows great motherly instincts towards the younger dogs. She has interacted well with large and small dogs in other private spaces and is even able to coexist peacefully with the cat in the home! Though she may not always be interested in other dogs, Khione absolutely loves people. She’s a big sweetheart who will immediately roll over for belly rubs when people approach her. She loves cuddling and anything that keeps her close to her humans. She is good with the kids in the home, as well. Her love for people does mean that she struggles with being in a crate and will experience separation anxiety, including howling and digging, when left completely alone. This is mitigated by having the other dogs around. Despite being an outdoor dog and not being potty-trained early on, Khione is already making good progress letting people know when she needs to go outside. Other than some typical counter-surfing and jumping on people, she has not shown any behavioral issues. She responds well to redirection and is very responsive to verbal correction, stopping the unwanted behavior as soon as you scold her. She will need some continued training to learn how to walk on a leash, but from what we’ve seen so far, we think she will learn quickly. All Khione needs now is a family to call her own. She would make a wonderful addition to any family that is ready to give her the love and attention she wants and deserves. Due to her separation anxiety, it is important that there is at least one other dog in the home to keep her company. Without her puppy around, we have no concerns about her getting along with dogs of any age or size.

Story
Meet Zenith! Zenith was pulled from the euthanasia list at the Maricopa County shelter in November of 2023 with the help of a generous foster. According to shelter staff, he was e-listed for anxiety, shyness with humans, and a greater than normal potential for escape. Other than some moderate pulling on leash and a high interest in other dogs, he didn’t actually display any aggression or behavioral issues that we feel would make him unadoptable. He allowed handling and pets and had a wagging tail in the play yard. Once he was out of the shelter, he didn’t seem shy at all. He’s just a big friendly husky pup, and we’re so excited to give him a second chance! Although Zenith was a bit restless for the first few weeks in his foster home, he gradually became more comfortable and accepting of attention. He has made a ton of progress in learning to listen to his humans and play nicely with other dogs. He’s definitely your typical high-energy husky who loves to play with other big dogs. He can be a bit rough at times when he wants to be in charge, but he is doing well at learning boundaries. He has shown some resource guarding behavior around the other dogs in his home, but that is improving as he adjusts to life in a stable environment. He is almost completely house- and crate-trained and, other than some occasional counter-surfing, shows no behavioral issues around the house. He continues to make progress in responding to corrections when needed. With some consistent training, we know that Zenith has a ton of potential to be an amazing dog. He has done well with bigger dogs in both his foster’s home and other homes, though his behavior with smaller dogs and cats is unknown. He has also done well around older, dog-savvy kids; we aren’t sure how he would be around particularly young kids because of all his husky energy. He loves going for walks and actually does well on leash, though he will need some continued training to work on pulling, especially around cars. He also loves to play fetch and is very food-motivated. If huskies are your breed, Zenith is definitely your dog! He’s a sweet, playful, very talkative pup who would make a great companion for an active family, with or without other energetic dogs.

Story
Meet Corio! This handsome boy was originally found as a stray. His finder was able to keep him for a while to search for his owner, but ultimately had to surrender him to MCACC when no one came forward. His the finder’s home, he was friendly and very playful (sometimes too playful) with other dogs. Even in the shelter, his notes were overwhelmingly positive; their staff reported that he was easy to take out of his kennel, that he knew how to sit, and that he would take treats politely. But like many huskies, he became stressed in the shelter environment. A single day of bad notes (that he was stressed and a little mouthy) landed him on the euthanasia list. We knew that one bad day wasn’t indicative of Corio’s true personality, so we just had to go meet him. During our evaluation, he happily solicited attention from our volunteers. He was very calm (for a husky) and extremely food motivated. We knew we were dealing with a dog who just wanted love and snacks and to be out of the loud, scary shelter, and we just had to give him a second chance. Corio adjusted easily to life in his foster home, soon showing his true colors as a sweet, relaxed, very happy boy who loves to cuddle. He easily learned how to play with the other two large dogs, though he is submissive to their much more alpha husky. He initially had some issues with marking in the house, but they stopped quickly (he is otherwise house-trained). He does continue to struggle with counter-surfing (when there’s food around) and jumping on people, though his fosters believe that behavior stems from him competing with their jumpy German shepherd for attention. We absolutely believe that these behaviors could be corrected with continued training. Corio responds well to verbal correction and especially to redirection with treats, as well as a spray bottle for when he’s particularly excited. He’s your typical young husky – he may need a bit more work on boundaries, but his love for treats should go a long way in his training. Corio’s fosters describe him as having medium energy. Although he’s a bit shy, he’s very playful with other dogs. He has only been tested around other large dogs in the home so far, so we cannot say how he does with smaller dogs, cats, or other small animals. Based on what we’ve observed, we believe he would do well with kids of any age. He does well in a crate when his humans aren’t home. He loves to go for walks and pulls on a leash like many young huskies, though he’s making progress. Corio would make an amazing addition to an active household or family that can continue his training and give him appropriate enrichment. He would love to be in a home with another playful dog or two, though he could likely do well as an only dog with some humans to love on him. He’s just a super friendly, puppy-like boy who is so happy to have a new chance at life. If you’re interested in meeting Corio, please fill out an application on our website.
