Thanks for choosing rescue!
Nyrukom is such a fantastic dog. We saved Nyrukom from being euthanized at Memphis Animal Services over a false allegation that he had bitten the adopter. He adopter picked him up on Saturday and took him back on Sunday. He stated when he got to the shelter that Nyrukom was destructive and had chewed a blind and door frame and he wanted to return him. The adopter was informed that he would need to bring Nyrukom back to the shelter on Tuesday, because they do not take “owner surrenders” on Sunday or Monday. The adopter asked for a supervisor, the supervisor told the adopter that the only way he could relinquish the dog on a Sunday was if the dog bit him. He was then taken into an office and the dog he initially was bringing back for destruction, turned into a bite case. We rallied the Mayor, City Attorney and our volunteers to please let Hogan’s Take Nyrukom and give him the time that he needed to decompress out of the shelter environment and be assessed. Nyrukom got his freedom on July 20th, 2016! ☺
We have spent more than 2 months with Nyrukom now and he is ready for his forever home. Nyrukom has never shown any signs of aggression, he is not even food aggressive. We did think that maybe Nyrukom was your typically mouthy young Husky, because he is only 18-24 months old, but he is not. Nyrukom loves people, children and other dogs. He is housebroken, crate trained, is learning basic commands and is now ready for his forever home. Per the agreement with Memphis Animal Services Nyrukom is not allowed to be adopted in Shelby County, TN, nor can he be adopted to anyone with children living in their home. Nyrukom loves children, but he is to strong and a BIG puppy, so we do not think he would be good around toddlers because he could knock them over. Nyrukom loves to cuddle with his people, he is great at the dog park and is doing much better on lead. He still needs work on lead and mastering basic training, but he is very treat motivated and would do great in a beginner training class. If you are interested in Nyrukom and live outside of Shelby County, TN, please contact the Hogan’s…hopefully you are Nyrukom’s HERO!
All of our rescues are temperament tested around children of all ages, small and large dogs and cats. They all have basic training, IE; sit; down, come and walking on a lead. We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued dogs are kept in individual foster/volunteers homes. This gives them sometimes their first taste of having a family and being part of that family. Also, it provides us with the understanding of each individual rescue to match them to your family lifestyle and dynamics. As soon as we receive your application back, we will phone you to set up a home visit/meet & greet. If you are out of our area, we would request another rescue and/or veterinary office complete the home visit.
Our adoption fee is $250.00. All of our rescues are completely vetted prior to adoption. Also, completed prior to adoptions are heartworm treatments as needed, any medical conditions treated (IE; allergies, demedex, etc.) and any surgeries for dogs coming into the rescue injured (IE; car accidents, etc.). Below is the vetting that all of our rescues receive prior to adoption. We only pull dogs from shelters and approximately 80% of our rescues come into the rescue heartworm positive. Those rescues are treated for heartworms prior to adoption.
adults; 1~7/1's DA2PPvL
Booster 7/1 30 days after arriving DA2PPvL

We do complete home visits prior to being approved. They are not designed to turn adopters down, but to point out safety issues for this breed. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
