Tula (Owner Surrender)'s Story...
Name: Tulita (Tula)
Age: 1 1/2 years old (estimated)
Breed: Lab / Husky Mix
Sex: Female (confirmed spayed)
Location: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada
Vet Info: Tula is confirmed spayed. She was due for rabies and 5 in 1 vaccines on 2/22/13. They have no record of heartworm testing. Tula weighs 45 pounds.
Owner Info: Tula is a rescued dog who was found almost frozen to death in -25 degree temperatures. As a result, she suffered damage to her peripheral vision. Her vision straight ahead appears fine; however, the vet tested her peripheral vision and found she did not respond at all to the tests. Tula's owner says that Tula is a sweetheart and they love her to bits; however, she is not a suitable match for their home, which has four children, and they are afraid of what might happen. Because of Tula's impaired peripheral vision, sudden movements at the side of her head startle her. This is likely why she startles at things she does not see approaching her from the sides.
Tula is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained. Tula knows the commands 'sit', 'stay' and 'come' - sometimes! She is good with both men and women. She has played aggressively with their other dog, and her owner writes, 'Tula is nervous when meeting new dogs. After the initial meeting (a couple minutes), she generally ignores other dogs; however, she defensively snaps at them when they come into her 'space' when she first meets them. She has also snapped at people on a few occasions, when they have surprised her from the side (where she cannot see well). Two of her 'snaps' have broken skin. Both were defensive, not aggressive.' They add that 'she is generally happy and excited about most things/new experiences. She loves the outdoors and being active.Tula is very healthy and full of energy. She would make someone a wonderful running, biking or skijoring partner. I do not think she is suitable for our family, which includes small children. She loves people! Though, sometimes she is a bit shy, when first meeting men. Tula will be an AWESOME dog for someone. She just is not suitable for our family; however, we have had a wonderful year with her.'
