Meet this handsome, bi-eyed/parti-eyed, expressive Sibe – TONKA! We saved Tonka from a high kill shelter in NC and he is currently being fostered in NC. Tonka arrived to the shelter as a stray and his owners did not come for him. When we first pulled Tonka he had an injury to his front right paw from clawing at his run. It took several weeks to get it to heal but now he’s 100% medically sound. Tonka is housebroken and crate trained. He prefers men to woman and would do well as a side kick to an active guy who can be his alpha male. Tonka is NOT dog or cat friendly and needs to be an only pet. We would like to see him go to someone who has experience with this breed or has done ample research and understands and can anticipate the stereotypical Husky. No kids please. Tonka’s smile is as ornery as it is genuine and he’d love a home that would embrace his personality. He’s a big boy weighing almost 70lbs but does well on a leash. Tonka is 4 years old, neutered, current on vaccines and heartworm negative and in search of his forever home. Tonka can be transported from NC to either MD or NJ but anyone applying to adopt him must be willing to pick up in one of those 3 states, if application is approved.
Updated bio on Tonka 6/14/17 from foster mom:
"Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist"
If this saying is not fitting for Tonka, I do not know what is. Tonka has had his issues since coming to me, but my gosh, you wouldn't know he was the same dog anymore. He is experiencing life in a house with love & structure for probably what is the first time in his life. I strongly believe he was chained up before ending up in the shelter. When you think of Tonka, think of a puppy.... He loves learning new rules & boundaries, but equally loves breaking them just as much
Tonka is between 2 to 3 years old, neutered, UTD on all vaccines, hw negative & has been kept current on nexgard & hg plus!
He is available for adoption, but must have an adopter who is patient & who will continue to work with Tonka. He does have seizures, & is on medication for them to keep them under control, so this is a must to be kept up on with whatever home he goes to. He is fully crate trained, & is housebroken. He does not destroy things, & is now very confident & comfortable when left alone. Loud noises do not terrify Tonka like they do most dogs, however I always use caution.
He is really dog selective, he can not be around other dominant dogs, & no large groups of dogs. What he needs is 1 or 2 laid back, easy going dogs, preferably female & his size, cuz he loves his ladies
He does need to be fed separately from others & caution should be used not to leave food & toys all over the house while he is still adjusting to a new house.
No small animals, no cats, & I would have to say only older children who know how to act appropriately around dogs. He is not a dog that will like a child crawling all over him.
He has come so far With his leash manners since his arrival, he walks amazing with his Martingale collar & easy walk Harness on. He could go to a home with or without a securely fenced in backyard, so long as whoever adopts him is active & takes him on walks Regularly ( NO DOG PARKS!!!! )
Tonka is loaded with lots of personality & funny faces that will make you laugh to go with it. He really has become an amazing companion & just needs the right owner to compliment him
