Prior to coming to SHRF Lika was surrendered to county animal services. She was not cared for properly by her first owners, possibly abused. Someone saw this and was able to take her in to try to give her a good home. Unfortunately they were not successful and Lika ended up with animal services and now SHRF.
Lika appears to have an alpha personality when it comes to other dogs but with proper introductions and monitoring she can get along with non-alpha dogs. She loves her foster bothers and even snuggles up resting her head on them. She is not good with small dogs and most likely cats so needs a home with dogs her size or larger or she would even do well by herself.
She is a little head shy as a result of her past but not aggressive, just somewhat fearful of people she first meets. It doesn't take her too long to warm up to someone who tries to give her attention. In the few weeks she has been in rescue she has learned that most people are very friendly and think she is a beauty.
Lika is not completely housebroken yet and has occasional accidents but she is still young and will quickly learn her manners. She loves her car rides and travels well.
She is underweight so has a few pounds to gain, which won't take long as she is very food motivated. Lika knows the sit command and with time and the right motivation she will learn more. Like many Huskies, she is an escape artist and will bolt out the door at the first opportunity, so caution is advised.
Lika is healthy, Heartworm negative, spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. She’s very young and pretty much a clean slate. With proper training, patience and love she will show you exactly how loyal and affectionate a Husky can be. Fill out an adoption application on our website, www.siberrescue.com, today.
