Nanook, the day he was rescued by Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project
Nanook was found tied to a pole in an isolated area in the Everglades by a group of volunteers with Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project out of Miami, Florida.
He was left with no food, water and zero chance to defend himself since he was tied up. Nanook’s microchip was traced back to a pet store in Montana, which is no longer in business.
Below are the original Facebook posts from Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project and Husky Haven of Florida when Nanook was first found back in June 2018. Apparently these remote parts of South Florida have become a dumping ground for unwanted dogs and are left for dead.
It’s an awful thing to think about, but we couldn’t be happier that he was found alive. Nanook was eventually adopted from Husky Haven of Florida at the end of June 2018 by the King family.
“He has always been the SWEETEST boy but he has come out of his shell more and more since we adopted him.” – Nanook’s Dog Mom told us. “He was a natural fit for our home from the start. He even helped our husky Bella’s separation anxiety. With him, she is more confident and happy. He has helped our newest dog Sasha adapt, as well.

We met Nanook during our Pet Photo Shoot Fundraiser for Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. His parents treated him to a photo shoot to celebrate his Gotcha Month.
“He is a happy go lucky boy who LOVES adventure. He is up to go anywhere. It has always felt like he belonged with our family and like he has been with us forever.”
