Meet Fonzy

-Written by Fonzy, a 10-month-old, 60lb male Husky/Great Pyrenees mix.

Finding your family should be the happiest time of your life. And for me, it least for a short time. I was an adorable fluffball that my family just had to have. They wanted to cuddle me, they wanted to play with me, and they didn't really think things through. So, as I grew older and became more demanding of their attention...suddenly I was not so cute. It was no longer okay that I was still having potty accidents despite my age. It wasn't okay that I was getting into things, even though I was only doing it because I was bored. They were tired of me and the responsibility. The weird thing is...I could feel it. I could feel their love turn into something else. I could feel their annoyance. I could feel them start to resent me and the extra work I made them. You think that would make me take a step back, but I didn't like it. I wanted things to be okay, so I tried even harder. To cheer them up. To be a part of their life again. I did not want to be shut out. I didn't understand why they were suddenly so cold to me, but surely this was just a phase? I I would try harder to make them happy.

As it turns out, I got through to them. One day they ended up loading me up in the car and I was so excited. Finally, a road trip. An adventure with my family. This was just what we all needed. I patiently looked out the window while we drove. Then, suddenly...everything changed. They stopped in the middle of the road, opened the door, and tossed me out. I was so stunned I just stood there for a second. What the heck had just happened? The sound of the car door closing broke my stupor and I turned around and tried to run back to them. Surely, they hadn't done that on purpose. This was all a mistake. It wasn't. I realized that when they drove off and left me alone. Still, I tried to chase after them. Other cars were coming and going and after a close call, I retreated back into the grass. I had no idea what I was going to do. I ended up venturing back onto the middle of the road when someone saw me and stopped. They were so nice and I needed nice then. So, I let them load me up into their car and take me home with them.

I had some minor scrapes and cuts on me and was a bit rough looking when she brought me home. She helped nurse me back to health and I was with her for about a week. During that time, I started to open up again and become a playful puppy once more. My cuts healed and soon that horrible and cruel day started to fade from memory. Once I was doing better, the lady who rescued me off the street reached out to this rescue me. When this rescue heard my story, they welcomed me to their fluffy butt family. It is crazy to think that this was already in July of 2022.

I had been adopted but had recently been returned due to not getting along with the cats in my adoptive home.

While I am bummed things didn't work out, I don't ever want to waste a single day. If my past experience has taught me anything, I want to LIVE. I want to play. I want to play with the other dogs. I want to play with toys. I want to splash around in the water. I want to cuddle with my people. I want to go on walks and hikes. I want to do everything that life offers me, and I want to do it with my family. I am a very big fan of other dogs and will need at least one other playful dog in my new home. That is an absolute must. I feel so much more at ease when they are around and they really help me get my energy out. I am good with kids and do well with the 5-year-old in my foster home. Because of my spunkiness though, I may be a tad too much for the really young kiddos.

I very much enjoy meeting people when out in public and would make the perfect choice for someone looking for a dog that they can take everywhere with them. I am potty and kennel trained. I am not the biggest fan of the kennel though, so a home that didn't kennel or at least wouldn't kennel me for long hours at a time is preferred. I would probably do well in an apartment setting as long as my new family was active enough. I am not a lazy couch potato though, so when I say active I mean several walks, hikes, runs, trips to the dog parks, etc...not just a walk here and there. ? So far, I have not been a big chewer. I will go for children's stuffed toys but haven't tried to chew on any shoes or furniture. Given my age, I do still recommend puppy-proofing just in case though....we wouldn't want me to get too tempted to grab would we? I will bark some when I am outside and when I am playing with other dogs, but other than that have not been a big barker. However, I can be very talkative in that typical husky way when I want to be!

"Fonzy has such an amazing personality! It didn't take long for us to fall in love with him at all. He is very affectionate and loves to be close to his people. I can tell that he would be super excited to go on adventures and would make an excellent playmate for just about anyone. He isn't a major cuddler quite yet, but he doesn't hesitate to ask for pets and give kisses. The way he acts with our daughter (five years old) also just brings a huge smile to my face. He will follow her around the house and play with her any chance he gets. He's also super smart and will talk to you when he's hungry or excited about going outside. Fonzy is going to make some family out there so happy, I just know it!"
