This girl is truly one of our top ten success stories. Five hours from euthanasia, she was reclaimed from a shelter and brought to us as an owner surrender. SHE WAS NOT HAPPY! Completely shut down except to growl and try to bite. Fast forward a month or two and she has become a funny, "helpful" girl with loads of personality and love to give. Pharaoh is a Husky/Border Collie that presents physically alot like a cattle dog, but the underlying breed personalities are obvious. How lovely to have a dog that listens impeccably, loves to fetch, and "manages" the other dogs as they go thru the same process. She is a special case and we know her final and forever folks are out there, we're just waiting for them to show up. Patience, selflessness, a working knowledge of dog psychology and a willingness to build trust will be imperative for PHARAOH. Love this girl so much- she's a great dog and we're so lucky to have snatched her from the jaws of death. If you'd like to see her progress, be sure to visit our facebook page: Thunder Puppy K9 Rehabilitation and Rehoming and enjoy the pix and vids. Meanwhile, we are willing to work with you, while you earn her love and affection- so don't hesitate to inquire!

cuteness MD


MoonDog has really been dealt a raw deal.  This now ten year old girl came to us as part of a rescued sled dog situation way back in 2011; in fact, our permanent pack member ABRACADBRA was her teammate/sister.  Cuteness MD has been adopted twice since then and seriously, due to no fault of her own,she has been returned-each time after a number of years!  We don't need to go into details, but this past time she gained so much weight it put her health and longevity in peril. As of today, she is on a decent diet, supplements,  and  an exercise plan so she can go to the doctor and have some of her benign fatty cysts removed -among other things.  Once again, it feels like humans have failed her over and over again.  We're just grateful we've been here to pick up the pieces and help her- no matter how much or how many times.  As of November 2018, we aren't looking to place her so much in a FurEver Home- although we are open to it if it's in the Thunder Puppy family.  What would help the most is finding her a nearby Foster situation while she continues to get back in shape.  

Do you have room in your heart and home for this special senior?  She is super low-maintenance, crate and house trained, tolerates other dogs, and only needs a half mile walk a day right now.  Maybe if you can't foster, you might consider sponsoring her?  She will stay in our midst for the rest of her life so that we can make sure she is healthy and ultimately happy.  

Hey Buddy, can you spare a dime?

Please note that we do not adopt to APTs or kids under 8


Husky mix available for adoption at Thunder Puppy K9 Rehabilitation and Rehoming in Colorado

AMARUQ (pronounced ama-ruk) is such a sweet soul and is truly a special little girl.  AMA is a Siberian Husky mix whose name is Inuit for Grey Wolf. She just turned a year old and kinda had a rough start. The last six months in our care, we've been letting AMA explore, connect, play and learn about life in general.  She is working on her shyness with strangers and slowly getting her primary education under her collar. Mostly we want her to enjoy her puppy and young adulthood so she will be a well-rounded dog, as she is already so compliant, loving and willing to please.  Still, there's that curiosity and "need" to touch and taste  everything. She hasn't had any 'real life domestic' experience, so her FurEver Home and Family is going to be just as exciting. And scary.  :)  It will help if she has a sibling with her as she is extremely pack-oriented and enjoys the company of other dogs.  Maybe an older brother or sister to show her the ropes?  Just love this dog- are you the exceptional human who wants to give her the future she deserves? 

No children, no apartments please.

Siberian Husky  available for adoption at Thunder Puppy k9 Rehabilitation and Rehoming in Colorado

Say "heywhooo" to SITKA! She is a 3.5 year old pure bred Siberian Husky who is bi-eyed and has freckles on her nose!  

SITKA came to Thunder Puppy as a transfer from another rescue in Utah when a problem developed with her Colorado adopter.  Originally scheduled as a training session, the human involved gave up before I even got there.   

Things are meant to be I guess. SITKA'S "issue" is that once in awhile her brain gets locked on being growly and possessive. We've developed an easy way to help her 'snap out of it' and are super willing to assist  you get to know this great girl.  It's starts by not taking it personally.  :)

Thunder Puppy is dedicated to finding her FurEver home.  She needs a Husk- knowledgeable person who isn't in need of a super cuddly dog- but can appreciate and love SITKA for her sense of humor and confident personality.  She is learning to play with and enjoy other dogs here- something I think has been missing her life (judging from her awkward approach-howl out loud!) and really is low-maintenance and receptive to affection on her terms.  She's a fabulous dog and it's been an honor to help her get comfortable in her own fur without putting excessive expectations on her.  

If you think you might love SITKA they way we do, then please visit our ADOPT PAGE to familiarize yourself with our process and follow the Six Steps To Success.  Thanks for considering a Thunder Puppy Pack Member!



WAKANDA (pronounced wah-ken-da) is a Sioux name meaning "possessor of magic". This little girl certainly does.  I call her my 'pocket wolf' due to her appearance and antics; she is tiny and very crafty, yet her persona is enormous. 

Of all the yearlings, she is definitely the "pack leader" and enjoys getting everyone all riled up for zoomies, a game of chase, or wrestle-mania. 

She is also very independent and super clever.  She spends her spare time figuring things out and self-entertaining. 

Highly intelligent and definitely having a 'Call of The Wild', 'KENDA is not for a novice of the Northern Breed.  Her guardian will need to respect her and meet her where she's at, while building a relationship based on trust.  None of this is to say that she isn't loving and adorable with the human, it's just that  she's "got 'KENDA business to attend to, thank you very much, so see ya when I see ya!"  A girl of the current culture-  haha!

WAKANDA is SO unique and special that you'll never find another quite like her.  We will know the right fit for her when we meet them, so if you are fascinated by her possibilities, feel free to reach out and apply.

Another dog or dogs (even one of her siblings here) are a must for her and she definitely needs a dig and jump proof yard.  Again, no apartments. 

If you believe that you are the person for WAKANDA, please visit the ADOPT page here on this site and fill out the application.  I'd love to chat with you about her.  XOXO
