    Contrary to what some people on here believe and write – an old dog has very little chance of being adopted.
    Kill shelters hold dogs for a few days, if they are not claimed or adopted, they are euthanized – even young dogs don’t make it many times, a 12 year old large dog would have almost no chance.

    Rescues may take an old dog if they have a place, but again, it is very unusual for anyone to adopt him – I have 2 old dogs that I fostered and kept, for the simple reason that there were no good adoptive homes that applied for them.

    It is incredibly cruel to dump a 12 year old dog, whatever your mother’s problem with keeping him, please try to help her work out the issues so that your dog can remain with the family he knows for the last few years of his life. Huskies do not live all that long, and he is old already for his breed – please try to get your mother to see that it would be a real cruelty and shame to dump your dog at his age. When she gets old, she will not want to be abandoned by her family, neither does your dog – she really should be teaching you that, but maybe you can teach her.

    Unless you know the adoption agency has “A NO KILL” policy don’t do it. Some of these agencies will put your dog down if it isn’t taken in so many Days. I have been looking to adopt, but their price was too high and they said the dog only had 1 day left. I said “wouldn’t you rather lower their price than destroy the dog and they said NO.”
    I Belong to Best Friends in Utah that is one I believe the biggest organizations to save animals. CHeck with them out bestfriends.org
    if you can’t find a good agency in your town.
    I have a had A Husky, he was the love of my life I could never have gotten rid of him
    I feel for you. They are loving dogs

    Jeez, it’s a dog, not a refrigerator…you don’t just get rid of it because it’s old.

    Shelters and rescues do take senior dogs, but I’ll be honest, most people want a puppy or a younger dog because an older dog can be a lot to take on with increasing health problems and vet bills so they’re much less likely to be chosen.

    Yes they do they usally take dogs any age. You could give the dog up to Dog to
    Hearts United for Animals which is a no kill shelter in Nebraska. They will come around the country an pick up dogs and cats etc.Try hua.org.

    Most animal shelters take any age of pets but I don’t know which town you’re in so I don’t know where you can give it away. If you live in Houston go to the Houston Humane Society.

    Why does she suddenly want to discard your dog? She’s going to have a very difficult time trying to place a dog that old. Most animal shelters wouldn’t even bother to try – the dog would be put to sleep as soon as he was signed over and rescue groups have enough trouble finding homes for young animals. I love how people think animals are disposible…

    how could you give him away after 12 years that he spent with you. He’s very old and I’m sure he will want to die in YOUR arms. And why would you put him on for adoption anyways? He gave 12 years of his life to you. You made a commitment to him the day you got him so do whatever it takes to keep that promise. It would make him very sad if you left him! I know it would kill my dog if I left him after all this time. I would do whatever it takes to make it work for him. They are like babies, you don’t get rid of them EVER!. How can you treat him like he is nothing more than a “fur thing” and has no feelings? He loves you and it would kill him if you put him on adoption. No one wants old dogs. He will die in the shelter alone, without you, in a cage. SO sad!

    Why?????!!!!!!

    Try to rehome him with a nice family as it is hard to find homes for older dogs in shelters cause people see the cute puppies first!

    Where do you live? I’ll take him!

    Look online for a siberian husky rescue in your area or post on craigslist. Craigslist is great and you’d be able to meet the adopting family to ensure that it’s a good fit for your dog.

    http://www.craigslist.org then click on Pets under the Community heading.

    why does she want to give him away? Dogs are a lifetime thing not something you give away when you want to or when there old.

    Thats rude of her to give away a dog thats that age! i would never do that to my dogs EVER!

    You don’t say where you live or why she wants to give him away? How long have you had him? Email me with your location and I will try to find a rescue that might have an opening in your area or least try to guide you thru the process although it is sometimes extremely difficult to adopt out a senior. Whatever you do…DON’T take him to a shelter…he will be euthanized. angels4siberians@hotmail.com

    They may help you find a place for him check with the rescues at your local petsmart.

    Why now at 12? Seems pretty shitty to do now.

    PS I think I am finished with one of mine too. Maybe Ill just get rid of him. GET REAL!! What trouble can he be causing at 12??

    Try your local animal shelter. All Shelters take dogs of all ages. It’s not like they would turn him away!
