A Rescue of Our “Cousin Breeds” in Michigan

Recently, a hoarding situation in Michigan left approximately 98 dogs – Norweigan Buhunds, Norrbottenspets, Border Collies and mixes of these, needing new homes. NISRA stepped in to help our “cousin breeds” with such an overwhelming need.

At this time, we believe all of the dogs are either up for adoption at shelters or released into foster groups. In total between the Norweigan Buhund Club of America, the American Norrbottenspets Association and NISRA, 48 dogs were pulled either from the original house or area shelters.

If interested in adopting a Norweigan Buhund, click here for more information or email corgpinmom@gmail.com.

If interested in adopting a Norrbottenspets, please click here or contact norrbottenspetsrescue@gmail.com. There are also several Norrbottenspets available at Lapeer Animal Control and St. Clair Animal Control for adoption.

Mixed breed dogs from this situation are (or will be) locally available at Blue Water Area Humane Society, Humane Society of Saint Clair (SNAP) and Serenity Animal Hospital.

Lastly, NISRA has taken in some of the mixes as an assistance to our “cousin” breeds – dogs that would likely have been pulled from a shelter as they certainly look “Ice-a-like!” The need has been overwhelming and no one rescue group can handle this many dogs alone. So meet Lucy, Lisa, Spirit, Honor and Quinn. More information about them will be on our adoption page. If interested in adopting or long-term fostering one of these dogs, you can fill out an application and email us at nisrabod@gmail.com.
