From time to time, we take in Siberian Huskies in need of a new home.


The reasons why dogs are surrendered to us are varied, but each case sees a needy dog looking for a new home.


Why do we do it  -  time after time?


When people say, "I couldn't foster because it would be too hard to give a dog up"; we say, "How can it be harder than knowing a dog died because no foster home took it in when needed?"


CLICK HERE to see pictures of some of these dogs in their new homes.  Settled in and happy in a secure future.





The Siberian Husky is a northern breed sled dog, which means they have lots of fur and lots of energy and the desire to run fast and far. They don't like to be left alone, so they do best in an active household with a secure fence, no cats, and at least one other dog.

They are fun, smart, funny and paired with the right trainer and technique, trainable with many excelling in agility and obedience work as well as sled racing.

These dogs must be permitted inside the house and taken on family activities and outings.



March   -

and march on in to give a Husky a home

Currently fostering    Jagger    Eddard  Karli


Eddard  -  handsome and happy


Available now   19 March 2017

Eddard was found wandering on the streets of Canberra in early December 2016 and had been attacked by large dogs, resulting in puncture wounds over his hindquarters. He was shaved to keep the area clean, and neutered at the same time. The wounds have healed, and so has his soul.

Born on 9 January 2015, and just turned 2 years old, Eddard ready to start a new life with your family. He is now eager and anxious to go home with you - initially on a 4 week trial.

His new home must have secure fences, and you must have a commitment to taking him to weekly dog obedience training classes, and to daily exercise - either jogging, power walking or even trotting beside a bicycle (all on leash, of course).


Eddard is a young mature adult who LOVES being walked regularly without being over-excited or over energetic. He enjoys car rides, is quiet and settled when in the house and must be included in family activities. This is not a dog who can be left alone in the back yard and that is not the sort of home who will get Eddard.


Eddard deserves a home where he is wanted and will be loved and cared for. He has a happy and optimistic outlook on life - just wanting to share his love with a family.


We will provide an information pack, on-going advice and resources as needed.


Eddard is located near Canberra, your enquiries are welcome

We are asking a $ 100 donation for Eddard

He goes on a 4 week trial to see how he settles in with the family and lifestyle. Follow up care and advice is always available

Karli  -  a blue eyed beauty

Available now   19 March 2017

Karli - a black and white female with blue eyes who was found straying on the Pacific Highway. Born 19 June 2011, she is an older, settled Husky.

When found, the owner details on her microchip had not been updated, and no former owner wanted her back. We were asked to take her for fostering, and have found Karli delightful, and she has since been taught to Sit, Drop and Roll.  

Clean, affectionate and so very cuddly, she practically asks you for a hug - in between needing 2 walks daily, or a run in a dog park (fully fenced, of course!) She has a shorter coat which is easier to keep brushed and clean. She is on the small size for a Husky, but is too strong for a young child to walk.

Karli has had 7 homes that we know of, so a stable and permanent home is essential.  So she is very accepting of all the changes in her life, is friendly towards all people she meets and enjoys the company of other dogs  -  not showing any aggression, even when pushed.

Karli deserves a home where she is wanted and will be loved and cared for. She has a happy and optimistic outlook on life - just wanting to share her affections with a family. She must be permitted to spend time indoors with you as your faithful and loving companion.

The home must not have cats or pocket pets as she will chase and grab. There is no compromise on this issue.  If you have a cat  -  DON'T ASK about this Husky

Karli has a healthy appetite and crunches raw meaty bones easily  -  her diet here is raw chicken carcasses and wings, with some lamb flaps for variety.

Located near Canberra, your inquiries are welcome.
Karli will go on a 4 week trial to see how she settles in with your family and lifestyle.  Donation:  $100

Jagger - Handsome but timid

AVAILABLE NOW  -  19  March  2017

A red and white neutered male Siberian Husky with warm and expressive brown eyes.  Born on 22 September 2015 he was kept as a potential show dog by his breeder, but is now looking for a family home as a much loved pet.

 A young dog with not much experience of life and different situations, he is looking for a committed and Husky experienced home where he will be allowed in the house and on family activities.

Jagger needs a lot of patience on your part to make up for lost opportunities in terms of meeting people and going to different places. Taking him to dog obedience training classes weekly will be a big help - but you must commit to continuing these all year.

Located near Canberra, your inquiries are welcome.
Jagger will go on a 4 week trial to see how he settles in with your family and lifestyle.  Donation:  $100

Husky Rescue gets to rub shoulders with some high profile people around the country




We are not a shelter

Each dog listed is in a caring foster home

Dogs are given love, training and the attention they require

While in our care the dogs are treated as part of our family

They are shown new things that they may not have experienced before 

-  like car rides, meeting children and interacting with other dogs

We also try to teach them basic house manners and toilet training

We want to make sure they are healthy and happy when adopted

All foster carers operate independently, though co-operatively

We fund our own rescue efforts



This Web Site is an Australia-wide listing of pure breeds of dogs from registered breeders. Includes puppies, mature dogs and rescues in need of homes as well as pages of information on every health and behaviour topic you could think off  - worthwhile bookmarking to dip in when you need quick answers   -    and often has Siberian Huskies in need of homes.




Petrescue lists Huskies in need of new homes.




Occasionally there are Siberian Huskies in the Canberra Dog Pound
