Hi! My Name Is River

We're happy to tell you that River has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Hello! I'm River, and I am a beautiful husky mix. I have one gold eye and one blue eye and I'm about 4 years old. I am a bit shy at first, but once I warm up to you, we will be best friends. I am pretty independent but when I want attention I seek it out. I am a typical husky mix so of course I like to sing. I also groan when I stretch or shake. My foster Mom says best home would be a house with a yard for me to play in. Apartment life would not be ideal for me. I really like toys! My foster Mom says I'm quite comical. I get excited when my foster mom touches my leash because that means we can go on an adventure. Can you take me on an adventure?

I really enjoy being around other dogs, but am okay being a single dog as well. I've only had a couple accidents in my foster home, and am pretty good about letting my people know when I need to go outside. I was pretty nervous and scared when I was first brought into the rescue but I am thriving now and quite enjoy spending time with people. Children make me nervous and they tend to scare me, I would do best with teenagers who understand I sometimes need my space. I sure do love my pets as well and will seek them out when I want them. I may take a bit to warm up but after that well be best friends I'm sure. Thanks for checking me out! Hope to see you soon. 

I so look forward to meeting you and finding my furever home!!



River's adoption fee is $375 plus tax, which covers her spay, vaccinations, microchip and any additional medical care she may have needed while in the rescue’s care. 

We are a foster based rescue, we do not house dogs at a facility. Age and breed, are NLR's best guess as we often don't know who or what mom and dad are. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website www.northernlakesrescue.org
