Adopt-a-Husky Shop

All proceeds from these items directly benefit the animals in our care and assist us in placing them in permanent homes. See our

Dog Booties These are the same high quality booties used by mushers everywhere. While great for protecting your dogs feet while sledding, they are also great at keeping your pet safe from salt, mud and other winter hazards. They can also be used to protect from licking when healing from injuries on the paw. Closure is made of Vel-Stretch Velcro to ensure the booties stay on. To measure, have the dog stand on a tape measure and measure a front foot at the widest part, as you would measure the width of your own foot. Small = 2 1/2" across the widest part Medium = 2 3/4" across the widest part Large = 3" across the widest part We have limited colors and sizes. Please choose the combination that you desire when ordering.

"The Siberian Husky" is a fantastic book about the Siberian Husky and it's history. It features works from many recognized experts on our breed such as Bob and Pam Thomas, Al and Ann Stead, Nancy Wolfe and even our own founder - Lois Leonard. It was produced by the International Siberian Husky Club and we are fortunate to be able to bring this great 300+ page work to you at a fantastic price while supplies last. This is the final printing of this work so when they are gone, your opportunity to own it will be too! Don't wait....

Originally sold for $40 - Now only $20 (To keep price reasonable, book will be shipped USPS media rate which has a slightly slower delivery. If you would prefer expedited shipping at a higher cost please contact us for a quote.)

Thundershirt - $40.00 $25
