Family in Washington state needs to rehome 5 year-old Icelandic Sheepdog
7 year-old male Icie in Alaska
Falki is a happy, active, 7 year old neutered male Icelandic sheepdog whose family needed to make the very hard decision to find him a new home. His energy level and their current situation are not working out and they want the best for him. He is currently in Alaska, but a home elsewhere would be considered. Falki’s breeder is aware of his situation and is working with us as well.
Falki is good with other dogs,cats and kids His owner does not feel he would be suitable for a home with horses as when he had visits, he was overly focused on trying to herd them. He has chased moose off and may see horses in the same light.
Falki has a good deal of training, and could (and would probably like very much to) do dog sports. He knows tricks, has done obedience and rally, treibball, agility and freestyle. At the current time he is NOT reliable off lead as his recall needs tuning up. Falki enjoyed his training in various sports training but he needs to work on the distractions present at trials. Consideration will be given to homes that would be interested in doing the sports he has enjoyed and/or teaching him new sports to engage him.
If you are applying and have dog sports experience, please include info about that on the application.

Nick is ready to find his forever home! He was neutered and had a dental cleaning and is in great shape. His blood work looked excellent, and his hips are looking good. He does have a small amount of arthritis in his spine, but he gets around just fine. Nick is nine years old and happy to play in the yard or go for walks, but also likes to sleep near you in the house. He is very friendly with people, but hasn’t been around small children. He gets along fine with cats, and is living comfortably with other dogs of both sexes, intact and neutered. He would probably like to have a dog friend at home, but a more easy going dog would be best. Nick is a purebred Icelandic and is currently located in Dallas, TX. We would prefer to place him locally if possible but will consider adopters out of town in some cases.
