found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Addie was found abandoned and in desperate need of some TLC. She was a nursing mother (the puppies were never found) with bronchitis, whipworms and heartworms. She has completed treatment for the bronchitis and whipworms but must remain in treatment a little longer for the heartworms. Although she has been through a lot, she bounces back quickly and we estimate she will be ready for a permanent home around the end of April 2011!
Addie’s foster family feels she had very little socialization before coming to our rescue because EVERYTHING seems new to her. (She may have been a kennel dog used for breeding.) However, she has come a long way in just a short period. She is now house trained, crate trained (but has her foster family trained to put treats in her crate to lure her in), uses a doggie door, knows the commands “sit”, “down”, “drop”, “upstairs”, “downstairs”, “outside” and “treat”. We’re still working on “off” because she seems to think humans are springboards for jumping. Addie loves shoes and socks, so you have to pick up all your shoes. Being a youngster, Addie definitely needs some chew toys to keep her occupied. Without them, she can be somewhat destructive.
Addie generally wants to be in the same room as her human family. She will play outside on her own for a while but then wants to lie at the feet of her humans or follow them wherever they are in the house. Addie does not lie on the furniture and when you get on the floor with her, she will come snuggle up next to you or lie across your legs. She is so sweet when she is in her snuggling mood and she loves to roll over and have her belly petted!
Addie does not go anywhere near dog blankets or pillows (unless they are in a crate) She lies on the floor during the day. At night, she sleeps inside a soft canvas crate on top of a blanket next to her foster family’s bed. The crate door stays open all night and Addie sleeps fine. If she wakes up and needs to go out, she will walk around a little and then start barking… and yes, Addie is a barker... she doesn't howl. She barks at her toys, her reflection or you if she wants your attention. When she gets overly excited, she also barks and it takes a little bit to calm her down. Addie would probably not be good in a home with small children as she is a little mouthy and is still learning her manners. She has not been around cats, so her behavior around them is not known.
Addie is 2-3 year old snow white Husky with beautiful blue eyes that look as though they are outlined with black eyeliner. She is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all her shots. Everyone tells her foster family what a pretty girl she is! Won’t you please give this adorable snow girl a forever home? Fill out an adoption application on our web site, www.siberrescue.com.
