We agreed to take Mona in when she was only eight-weeks-old. She was a very sick little puppy. She had daily seizures and was completely incontinent.

It was quite an ordeal, getting her well. It involved daily care for a dog that leaked urine like a badly leaking faucet. Raising thousands of dollars for her medical treatments and surgeries and driving her to and from countless doctor visits by the time she turned a year old she was as fixed as she was going to get.

Her seizures are controlled with medication and the bladder surgery took care of her leaking mostly. She does leak overnight in her crate most nights. So we have towels in her crate at night. She does need occasional bathes (which she is used to) and her towels washed.

For a dog who had a grim future it's truly amazing how far she's come. Now all we have to worry about with Mona is finding her the best possible family that can love her as she is...not quite perfect but so incredibly darling.

A tenacious, independent, confident, mischievous, joyful and sensitive husky, that's our Mona. She is a bit protective when she's in her cage so we think a family with small kids wouldn't be right for her.

Mona loves to play in water and would love a baby pool in her yard in the summertime. She loves walks and is both affectionate when she wants attention and aloof when she is being what huskies can be!

She loves the snow, her crate, and her nylabones. She is very smart and can be sensitive too.

Mona co-exists with other dogs and can even play with another dog if they other dog is pushy about play but otherwise she lives without issue with other dogs. She is not good with cats or small critters.

She lives with a family with a eight-year-old child. But she would be best in a family with kids over ten only because she can get a bit protective around her cage when she steals something and brings it into the cage with her. Yes, Mona can be naughty...but not too naughty':)

She also needs a family that is not gone from the home for longer than six hours at a time on most days.

Mona is on medication for her seizures and incontinence. The total cost is roughly $100.00 a month. Because of her medications she needs quarterly blood tests. Additional medical expenses should be anticipated and money set aside just in case.

A home visit will be required to adopt Mona so please only adoption applications within an hour of Libertyville, IL.
Please visit our website and review the entire application process.
