I love to make doggie friends. I was anxious of busy city noises at first. But I’ve come a long way since I started living with my foster family. I now walk very happy and confident.
I love humans so much that I like to jump on them and give kisses. But I get it, not everyone likes it. So I’m working on my manners :)
I’m looking for a special human, who will love me, show me around this beautiful place and take me on adventures. It would be awesome if my human is retired, or works from home, or can take me where they work, or have friendly dogs to leave me with. I don’t like to be left alone all day. Who likes it anyway?
Are you that special human?
Would you like to meet me? Please contact my rescue PawesomeBaby if you like to do so!” :)
She has a sweet, friendly personality.
We think she is around 2 years old.
She is current on vaccinations.
At her current foster home, we are taking her out on a routine to help potty train. She gets very distracted on walks and can take time to do her business.
She’s currently not showing any prey drive. But expect huskies to show it at some point as it’s in their genes.
For more info on her training needs, please scroll below.
We are looking for adopters in Washington state and BC Canada.
Gyda’s ideal home is where:
1. She gets to do sniff walks or hikes or have a large property to explore. Remember, huskies are working dogs and need good mental and physical workout to give them a happy, healthy life.
2. Someone or another friendly dog is home, so she doesn’t have to spend all day alone. Remember, huskies are pack animals and like to be around others.
3. Nobody hates fur and she can get regular brushing. Huskies will shed enormous amount of fur every “shedding season”, and also some everyday. If you do not like fur on your clothes, furnitures or anywhere inside home, then they aren’t the right breed for you.
4. Her human needs to be confident training with positive reinforcement, or able to hire a positive reinforcement trainer with any training needs. We discuss all training needs we are currently aware of. But dogs, just like humans, adapt to changing environment and can develop habits or behavior that may need some guidance.
5. Her human can be living in an apartment, townhome or a house with private yard.
She would love sniff walks, so it doesn’t matter what type of home she goes to. As long as you enjoy getting out as much as she does.
However, if you do have a yard, it must be fenced escape proof and the fence must be at least 6 ft high, to leave the dog alone unattended. We do not advise leaving huskies outdoors unattended in an open yard, or yard with short fence. Leash them, or supervise them while recall training, in such cases. The prey drive gets huskies to escape short fences, run away, get lost and get killed. Invisible fences aren’t advised; moreover a highly driven husky easily breaks through it.
1. She’ll need help learning basic commands.
2. She’ll need guidance on where to go do her business at the new house. We usually put new dogs on a strict routine, crate or keep close to us and not leave alone in the house during the first few days. They pick up routines quick.
The dog trainer at http://canineconnectiontraining.ca has put together awesome training videos about a variety of training needs, that we can share with you.
We also provide a list trainers in Seattle area who follow science based, positive reinforcement training philosophy.
Below listed requirements are meant for everyone’s safety.
• If you have other dogs, then you must also be knowledgeable and have good hands on experience with running a multi-dog home to be able to adopt a dog from us. What's expected of the adopter is just keeping basic house rules like (1) keep the dogs apart when feeding, monitor & put away left over food, (2) help them build mutual trust before leaving alone with treats, toys around (3) keep dogs out of kitchen when handling food etc
• As with any dog, earn their trust around food handling. This is an essential training for every dog, so they learn to trust their new human. It takes only a couple of practice sessions around meal time with most dogs with no history of food guarding. Teaching to sit, then hand-feeding food & high value treats is one of the best ways to eat trust.
• If you have children at home, they should be at least 8+ yrs, and know to safely & respectfully interact with dogs, to be considered for adoption. We think families with younger children will likely not have the time needed to exercise and nourish a new dog. And the time needed to train little kids to safely interact with dogs, read their body language & respect their space.
• We discourage the use of choke, pinch, prong collars on our dogs. We do not believe this is the humane way to train dogs for obedience, when there are science based, positive reinforcement training methods available in 2023. Besides, huskies are genetically prone to glaucoma of the eyes, and the pressure on the neck will only hurt them more. Walking on a well fitted no-pull harness is encouraged. All our dogs come with a “no-pull” harness.
The adoption fee is USD 400 ( or CAD 550 for Canada adoptions).
