8Below Husky Rescue

Welcome

Welcome to 8 Below Husky Rescue, we are a Yorkshire (North England UK) based husky rescue. We deal with adoption and rehoming of all sled dogs, and sled dog crosses (siberian huskies, alaskan malamutes etc). We assess every dog for behavioural and medical needs before they become available. We vet every home and family during the adoption process giving each dog the best possible chance of flourishing in their new life. If you're new to dog rescue read through some of the inspiring success stories below. We are a charity ran purely on donations and fundraising, we do not receive help from the government or local authorities - Registered charity no 1156670

This little fella is blaze and wow what a beauty he is ! He is an absolute sweet heart. Blaze is 2 years old , vaccinated, neutered and micro chipped. He is fine with other dogs and can live with children , we would advise dog savvy children as he's quite bouncy 😁he will need someone that can continue his training . He is very thin under all the coat and in need of some TLC. Would you like to offer Blaze his forever home ??...

The very beautiful Rio has arrived 💖 He's 12 months old , vaccinated , neutered and micro chipped. Rio is a large husky x We are not 100% what his cross is but he looks more Canadian / Shepard in the flesh , but what ever he is he is very stunning. Rio has previously lived with other dogs but on dog assessments has been abit to much even for the most tolerant of dogs 😂 We think he would suit being an only dog , he needs someone to continue his training as he is very much like a big puppy , he knows his basic commands but does jump up a lot . Rio can live with children but we would say dog savvy as he's very lively and is likely to knock little kids over as he really isn't aware of his size 😅 This boy will make a fantastic dog , he needs an active home and if you are wanting a jogging partner Rio is your boy 😁 http://www.8belowhuskyrescue.org/adoption-enquiry-form/ ...

⛔️⛔️ URGENT FOSTER NEEDED ⛔️⛔️ *** Please Share *** Jester is in urgent need of a foster / forever home , he is a lovely bouncy lively young boy that loves his food and his walks . Jester is finding kennel life stressful and is dropping weight , he needs out now ! 😓 Jester is 2 years old - vaccinated, castrated and micro chipped , he can live with older children , he does choose his doggy friends so meet and greets are essential, a submissive female would be best suited, Jester would also be happy as an only dog. He loves to run and would make a great jogging partner , he would also work great in harness. Please if you can offer Jester a temporary or permanent home shout up and a member of admin will contact you. Thank you Team 8 below. http://www.8belowhuskyrescue.org/adoption-enquiry-form/ ...

Name - Maurice Age - 15 months old Vaccinated - Yes Neutered - Yes Micro chipped -Yes * Can live with children - No , 16 years + * Can live with other dogs - Maurice is dog friendly. Likes - Maurice loves his long walks and playing with his toys , Maurice is a torment and would need a tolerant dog , he is very food orientated and since arriving in rescue he's made lots of improvements with his behaviour. He needs a malamute savvy home to continue his training , Maurice does have some issues and has displayed issues around food in the past.

Dislikes - Maurice does not like baths 😂 Location - kennels , West Yorkshire. http://www.8belowhuskyrescue.org/adoption-enquiry-form/ ...
