Miss Katie is a BEAUTIFUL Malamute and she was not in a good situation. The shelter contacted me about her and Miss Katie was being held on an abusive/starvation court case. We waited almost a year to get her and the judge finally released her after 1 year and 17 days in the shelter! I was so glad to finally get her and get her in my care! She came terrified of men and little kids, and me. But I worked with her faithfully and knew in my heart that she was wanting love! I would sit with her for hours on end working on her trust! Finally I was able to get her to trust me and she came into my acre fenced yard to play. She only came to me. We had her in the house and she slept by my bed. Totally housebroke and great with all my dogs here! I was so proud of her. I really wanted to keep her, but I was not the best home for her. Too much activity and she needed more mellow surroundings. Well, I found the perfect home for her and let her go. That was one of the hardest placements, but one of the best!! She is in a home where the man of the house in home a lot and the lady only is part time working.....Needless to say, Miss Katie is now happy, playing with both of the them and trusting them completely. This makes me soooo happy and proud to be able to say, I rescue dogs!

Adopting a friend

Sasha's Legacy of Western State Siberian Rescue, Inc. tries to help with Montana and Wyoming shelters as well as Idaho. Also most Northern Breeds are welcome to ask for help and I will see what we can do. My name "sashaslegacy" is for the first dog I was able to have as we were not allowed to have dogs growing up. Sasha was my first dog who was my soul mate and I loved very much and still miss her. She was an Alaskan Malamute and perfect in every way. Sasha was the one who helped me help other dogs as she also welcomed all the dogs I found with open paws. Sasha was the why I started rescue.

We are a private group who loves the Northern Breeds and are willing to help with word of mouth, fostering, transporting, and finding homes for the ones that are unwanted. This rescue welcomes the dogs into warm environment of the home setting, getting used to home life, kids, and if they want a buddy or not.

There is an application that I require that I can mail/fax/email. After reviewing and we talk, there is a contract that I require to have signed and agree with on the new adoption. If possible, would like to have new adopters meet the dog before adopting. There will be a home check also before the adoption is completed.

"http://www.cesarmillaninc.com" This is an excellent site, and I recommend watching Cesar Millan's shows! I have learned a lot by Cesar's ways to help animals! I use Cesar's practice along with my own to get the very scared/timid dog to be able to be a dog and proud again! These practices also helps any of the rescues I bring in! Amazing what love and affection and attention can do!
