********First – I want to say thank you for checking out my page!! Before filling out an application, please be sure to read the below. *******
My name is Odessa, and I came from a high kill shelter in TX. I’m around 5-6 years old, collie/husky. I am an extremely sweet girl looking for the right family for me.
I have a little bit of separation anxiety, and must go to a home with another dog. I do know how to howl, especially when I hear sirens! Due to my howling tendencies, an apartment/condo life is not for me. I am also a digger by nature. I do not try to dig to China, but I do like to dig a little hole that I can lay in! This is VERY common for huskies to do.
I need a home that has a securely fenced in yard. I am curious, and have the urge to explore, so going on walks is a must! I have wiggled my way out of cracked doors. Since I am very much Husky, my recall is not so great. I am on a mission to explore!!!
I also need to have a family who understands that I have accidents in the house. We are working with the vets and trainers to get a handle on it. It can be as common as 5-7 accidents in a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less.
I have a disease called Pannus, which basically is a progressive change that occurs where blood vessels and scar tissue invade the cornea. I will have to continue to visit a doggy Ophthalmologist the rest of my life. I will be on medicated eye drops twice a day for the rest of my life (costs ~$35-$55 a month). Unfortunately this disease is not curable, but it is manageable. My awesome foster mom ordered me some dog sunglasses so I am able to enjoy the outdoors again without doing further damage to my eyes. These awesome goggles are something I should wear when if I’m hanging outside, or going for walks, especially during midday when the sun is the most intense. Please read more about Pannus here: www.animaleyecenter.com/pannus.
My foster mom would strongly encourage those interested in adopting me to please read about Siberian Huskies, and their tendencies. A majority of my traits that I display are from that side of my family. However – I am not typically as high strong as most huskies, so as far as energy level, I get that from my Collie side!
I am hoping, with all paws crossed, that the perfect family is out there for me. I am a GREAT dog, who is very easy going, laid back, and just wants to snuggle all day long. I love most other dogs, cats, kids and people.
It would be most ideal if my future home is not too far from my foster. My foster mom believes I would transition best by slowly moving into my new home.
If you are interested in adopting me or knowing more about me, please e-mail my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you for considering Odessa!
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.
The Petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply.
