These are the current Norwegian Elkhounds/mixes that need homes. They are listed by state. In most cases we have contacted the place where the dog is located. Any additional information has been added here.
No dog is guaranteed to be the perfect pet. All of these boys and girls have had their lives turned upside down thru no fault of their own. They've had families that whether it was due to moving, divorce, or neglect just gave up on them. They've ended up in rescue because they need a home. Some of them are stuck in cages almost 24 hours a day in overcrowded places with very little time left.
Go thru their listings. We try to find a home as close to the dog's location as possible so they don't have so much trauma when they are traveling. Sometimes if it works out better for the dog, they travel a distance to a great home.
Please remember when you adopt, these dog's lives are in your hands. You are taking them home to be part of your family forever. Be prepared to be patient and kind and patient some more. It will take time for you to adjust to them and for them to trust again.
