Ruff Ruff! My name is Kunik
|Breed:||Siberian Husky||Color:||White - With Black||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Kunik is a fun loving boy who gets along with all canine friends so far. He is fully blind but as a newly blind dog his other instincts are kicking in well and his nose is working overtime. He can sniff out a cat so a home without cats is preferred. I think a home with another dog would be a good fit for him. He loves to take walks, go far rides and visit new things. He will jog along side you and is learning good manners on the lead. In new areas he wants to sniff most everything and of course kiss everyone he meets. He adores humans from newborn babies to adults. He does not chew on anything but likes to play with toys which squeak or make noise. You can leave him sitting in the vehicle when traveling and he will take a nap and patiently await your return. He does have a little anxiety about storms and will pace and wants to be cuddled during loud rain or thunder. He will scratch at the door if he needs to go out 95% of the time and knows the layout of our home well. He would do best in a one story home with little to no steps. Kunik will sit at the sound of treats or the mere smell and if you make him wait a few moments he will start dancing with his front feet in excitement.
Kunik had surgery to remove both eyes due to a disorder called VKH (Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada syndrome). He will at times of his life require prednisone to treat flare ups of VKH and beyond that is healthy. He has all of his vaccinations, neuter, microchip, and prevention. We currently have him on extra vitamins and Essiac Paws Tea to boost his immune system and it is recommended he remain on that.

Rescue Group Info...
Mush Rescue, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to the rescue and placement of Siberian Huskies. Based in Metro Atlanta, Mush Rescue was founded in 2008 to help displaced Siberians in the community and surrounding areas.
Mush Rescue is not a shelter with visiting hours. We are comprised of a network of foster homes run entirely by volunteers. Our chapter directors, officers and trustees are also volunteers. What brings us together is our love for Siberians and the desire to help these displaced animals find forever homes.
As a nonprofit, federally tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, our expenses are funded entirely by adoption fees and donations. We rely on the generosity of others who, like us, understand and admire the complexity of this unique and highly intelligent breed, and who want to help combat the effects of pet overpopulation in our community.
The Siberian Husky is an extremely smart but often misunderstood breed, which is why so many end up in rescue. Their high energy and need for mental and physical stimulation require an owner who is willing to put a great deal of time and effort into their care. Because of this, Siberians are not recommended for the first-time dog owner.
-Adoption Fee of $250.00
