Meet Olivia. We rescued her from a breeder. 🙁
Olivia is about 4 yo and weighs 55 lbs.
Please research the husky breed. They are definitely not a breed for everyone.
If you want a dog who…
** Is medium-sized and furry, with a wolfish appearance
** Is free-spirited and playful
** Is athletic and agile and loves the great outdoors, especially in cold weather
** Is usually good-natured with strangers and sociable with other dogs
A Husky may be right for you.
If you don’t want to deal with…
** Vigorous exercise requirements
** Rowdiness and exuberant jumping, especially when young
** Massive destructiveness and howling when bored, left alone too much, or not exercised enough
** Strong instincts to chase and grab anything that runs, i.e. cats
** Escaping from your yard in search of adventure
** Strong-willed mind of his own, requiring a confident owner who can take charge
** Heavy shedding
A Husky may not be right for you.
