DOGS: LARGE ONLY
* YOU MUST HAVE SOME SORT OF HUSKY OR RELATED EXPERIENCE UNLESS YOU ARE 100% COMMITTED TO A TWO WEEK TRIAL WITH STRICT GUIDELINES *
Mia is NOT your typical dog, she is a husky. She has very many husky traits. She is extremely independent. She does not want you to pet her unless she comes up to you inviting you to touch her. She is not a sweet, lovey dovey dog. She has her own personality and you will not be able to change it. She does do well with larger dogs but she should not be with dogs under 40 pounds. She should also not be with cats, chickens or any type of livestock. She absolutely requires a fenced in yard or you must leash walk her. However, she does not like you touching her collar or neck, she does not like her belly being rubbed & she does not like being told what to do.
If you give Mia the chance, she is an amazing dog that doesn't require much of anything. She eats, sleeps & plays. She's not looking for an old couple to retire with... She's looking for a playmate. She wants someone who has another husky or something like it to play with her. She will get mouthy and they can get mouthy right back without anything happening. At the end of the day, she is really just a temperamental husky. She had one owner her entire life who had to give her up at 8 years old. She misses him deeply and you won't get her trust like he had it.
