Meet CAROLE BRADSHAW
- REQUIRES A HOME WITH FENCED YARD
- REQUIRES ANOTHER DOG IN THE HOME
- EXPECTED TO BE A LARGE DOG (estimated adult weight 50-70lbs)
NAME: CAROLE BRADSHAW
LITTER: CAROLE is part of the "TOP GUN" litter
AGE/GENDER: ESTIMATED DOB: 06/2020, FEMALE
BREED: HUSKY MIX
ADOPTION DONATION: $550.00
TEMPERAMENT: Playful and mischievous and high energy
HOUSE TRAINING: Great, as long as you stay on a schedule. She's not an adult so she can't hold it forever. But she knows to go out to do her business and is good about it... as long as you let her out! She is a baby so she'll need a consistent schedule with multiple opportunities daily to go outside while she works on it. Puppies should not be considered reliable in regard to house training until 6-12 months of age. They're a lot like toddlers, who require diapers.
CRATE TRAINING: Good as long as you don't overdo it. Carole sleeps throughout the night and eats in her crate. She has naptime in her crate during the day as well. But she's energetic and rambunctious and needs to play before she's ready to settle in her crate. Otherwise the song of her people can be heard... probably throughout the neighborhood.
OTHER DOGS: Good! She will need continued socialization, like all puppies. Another dog in the home is required as Huskies are very social breeds and can often get lonely without another companion. Bored huskies can be quite vocal and destructive. Dog companion must be medium to large size as Huskies do have a prey drive. Girl loves to chase and be chased. Carole also has a bit of a dominant streak with her peers but can do well and plays well with supervision and slow introduction. Too much too soon can be overwhelming for her.
CATS: Would do best WITHOUT cats in the home. Huskies = prey drive.
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older
HEALTH: CAROLE is healthy. She is altered, microchipped, flea treated, and dewormed. She has been given vaccination boosters in our care; however, adoptive families will be responsible for the remaining vaccinations that puppies need. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of her vet care as well as transportation and general care costs.
HISTORY: CAROLE and her siblings came to us from Mexico where they were born under a car. Fortunately, they were found and saved. Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find them a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do.
NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: CAROLE is a puppy so she's playful and has a lot of puppy energy. She is super cute and fun, but a lot of work. Her forever family should be committed to lots of training - obedience, house training, and socialization. This will ensure that CAROLE grows into a confident, well behaved adult. Puppies' personalities are dependent on their environment, and the structure and training they are given, in addition to socialization. Their personalities continue to grow and be shaped by their new adoptive families. Puppy daycare and socialization classes or puppy kindergarten are highly recommended for their personal development. She will more than reward you for all your hard work with lots of love, loyalty, and laughs.
Carole does know her manners but it has to be reinforced because hello, she's a baby and babies are excited and easily distracted (I guess technically we could call her a teenager now). She will sit to get treats. Sit before she gets out of her crate. Sits before she eats. Sits in front of the door before going outside. Carole is highly food motivated but she could work on that recall of hers because she is a husky and will test you. She can be nervous of new dogs and will snap at them if they get too close, and she's a little bit of a hypocrite in that regard because she sees nothing wrong with getting in other dogs' faces, especially adult dogs that she likes to kiss. Slow introduction is the key, so this rules out dog parks.
Carole is ALL husky. She runs... and runs... and runs some more. And then digs. I would say she'd be an excellent running partner once her growth plates are fully formed. Carole is SMART. Probably a little too smart for her own good. And she's quite the athletic. So if you're thinking about agility, she could be the girl for you! While Carole can be dominant with her peers, she is quite submissive to older dogs (and quite vocally so). Sometimes Carole pretends she's a goat and will scream... when excited, when playing, when she feels that you're taking your sweet time opening up that crate door.
All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.
ABOUT MOTLEY ZOO
Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email email@example.com and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet!

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
