My story

🏎🏎🏎VROOM, VROOM!🏎🏎🏎

Just like my namesake, I am a speed demon! Actually, I am named after a FORMER race car driver turned environmentalist, so I see only great improvements in my future!

My name is Leilani and I’m an approximately 2 year old female husky mix weighing 44 pounds. I have been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. I have acute kidney disease and need access to water 24/7 to keep me hydrated. I eat a kibble that is specific to kidney disease to help manage it. Don’t worry it’s not as bad as it sounds. With proper care I am a happy girl and you wouldn’t even know! The vet suspects I had a bad reaction to NSAIDs meds when I was spayed so I cannot have those in the future. This will be important for our vet to know.

I am a super sweet girl who LOVES attention from people. I love to run and jump and have lots of energy! I love playing with toys - give me a stuffie, a kong bone, a tennis ball, any toy will do - and I will entertain myself for a good while. I do this exercise with my foster parents called sit on the dog. It's where they sit on my leash on the couch with just enough slack for me to lay down beside them and I am supposed to practice being calm. Good news I am getting better at this! Sometimes it takes me a bit to settle down. I am working on some basic obedience like sit and lay down but they are a work in progress. I will however sit VERY nicely for a treat and I am gentle taking it too! I live with 2 teenages and I will bat my puppy dog eyes at them to come give me some lovin’. They don’t! They know they’re not allowed! I mentioned above that I love attention from people, this makes it very important when I go to my forever home that they follow the same no talk no touch rule as my foster parents do. I know! It sucks, but it is for my own good. This rule helps me learn to be independent. it also helps prevent unwanted behaviours and becoming demanding. They follow this rule for at least the first 30 days.

I have not met cats so I can’t say how I would be with them.

How am I in my crate you ask? I can be a little stubborn at the door to my crate and pump the brakes but most of the time if you say “crate” I just walk right in. When I go to my forever home I will most likely need to be guided in until I learn where my crate is. During the day I have been quiet for the most part. When I get noisy in my crate, like whining sounds, a firm “enough” is all it takes for me to be silent again. In my crate I have a nice blanket that makes napping the day away so nice. My crate is uncovered except at night time. When my foster parents are home they follow a routine of two hours in two hours out of my crate. This helps me not associate my crate with you leaving, keeping it a positive space.

I currently live in a busy neighbourhood and this is where I have been working on my leash skills. I love going for walks! I am a puller and I do sometimes get distracted by my nose. When I am too far ahead or not paying attention to whoever is walking me, they do a 180 and walk the other way. This helps get my attention back. I can also get distracted by dogs and critters on my walks. My foster parents do a 180 to get my attention back on them.

I currently live with one male dog, about the same age as me. I really just coexist with him. He’s really friendly but I am not ready to play with him yet and can growl at him when we are in the house. I have shown brief interest in play, but then I walk away. He always gives me the space I need and does not approach me if I am not ready. My fosters have learned that I need slow introductions with new dogs and do best with dogs that are not in my face. You may need to advocate for me when meeting other dogs if they cannot respect my space. To work on my relationship and trust with the other dogs we do pack walks which I have been doing well on. I am on my leash indoors and outside so any unwanted behaviours can be corrected. It is recommended that if I go to your home that you do the same for the first month. This gives you a line of communication to me without talking or touching me. I would also benefit from a balanced trainer. They would be able to give you the skills needed to make sure we start off on the right foot to creating a healthy bond.

I can get in the car all by myself! I just need someone to guide me in using my leash and I hop right up! Don’t forget to secure me by tucking the leash into the frame of the door; this also reduces my flight risk when you open the door to let me out.

I love people! I love to be pet! I will plunk my butt right down in front of you so you can’t walk any further and wait for you to get the hint. Again because I do love attention it is really important for my forever home to stick with the no talk no touch rule. Too much attention too soon can cause unwanted behaviours and be demanding. Giving me that time can also help me become more independent. I have jumped up a few times on my foster parents but I am learning quickly that that’s no way to get what I want. They give my leash a tug and say “down” when I jump up.

I haven’t had any accidents since arriving in my foster home. I don’t give any signs yet that I need to go out so I do get taken out frequently though to make sure I stay successful in my house training. Keeping my leash in hand for the first month will also help make sure I don’t have any accidents. This also helps you teach me rules and boundaries.

Ok, so the checkered flag is waving! 3 - 2 - 1! It’s time for you to zoom on over to findingthemhomes.com/dogs/leilani and put in your application for this little zoomer! 🏎
