My story

My name is Norris and I am a male, 10 year old husky mix who is searching for my forever home. My breed is a husky mix, I am vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and I am ready to find my forever home.. could that be you??? I am 60lbs so the perfect size I like to think!
I have been in foster care for quite a few months now 😢 although I love my foster family I would really love if I could spend the summer with you 🤍�So let’s start with my age since some people get discouraged when they hear 10…. What they don’t hear is – I am a great listener.. I am very laid back.. I want to be with my people all the time .. I don’t get into trouble.. Sooo I am pretty sure all that sounds great doesn’t it?!?! So don’t let my age fool you!! I am happy-go-lucky! I love long walks on the beach! I love a good meal! I think we have some similarities, don’t you?! My foster dad always tells me how great of a guy I am and he’s so lucky to have me.. I hope others out there would be happy to have me too!�So next is my walking .. I am better on leash than my canine foster sisters I am told. I just know that as soon as I feel tension on my leash I need to slow down. So I am great at staying beside my foster mom on walks. I don’t react to squirrels or other dogs on my way either. I don’t even notice when other people walk by either. I do like to mark my territory after my foster sisters mark theirs, but my foster parents let me pee once and then keep me walking. I love to just walk slowly beside you. Even my foster nana can walk me and she said she can’t even walk a chihuahua!!�I am quite the quirky boy I am told! I like to do all my business in long grass or in trees or anything really that can hide me so you can’t see me 😝 another one of my quirks is that when you go to pet me I immediately drop to the ground and show you my tummy! I am guaranteed to not jump up.. I am more likely to jump to the ground. It is recommended that for the first 30 days you keep the talking and touching with me to a minimum to ensure no unwanted and demanding behaviours . I am very sweet and old so you want to coddle me but you must give me my time to decompress.�In the car I am also a gentleman! I get in and out on my own! I just sit back, smile and look out the windows! I have my leash strapped into the door so I cannot go too far. I do whine occasionally but stop after a few minutes. Foster mom helps me calm down by telling me no when I cry. We have been doing more trips in the car to good places so that I don’t associate the car with the vet and other negatives.�When it comes to eating so far I am really good. I eat every meal just laying down and enjoying it. I only have my back teeth left and a few front teeth -after 12 of my teeth were extracted coming south but that doesn’t stop me. I eat in the living room and I don’t bother with the other dogs. They also make sure not to bother with me. Foster mom is always near me when I eat. I have never shown any food aggression but since I cannot be crated it is best if you feed me in another space from other dogs. When I first came south I was so nervous I did not eat for a few days but once I settled in I was good to go.�As mentioned above, I do not like my crate- I broke through 2 normal crates and then after a few weeks trying with an impact crate i proved that i still could not settle inside. Being that i am a senior who is very laid back we decided to try letting me stay out of the crate while the family left. I did great! I don’t get into things. Another plus for my age☺️ But don’t tempt me with food on the counter.. I can’t promise anything 😝 I am great in the house alone and just sleep while you are away. I can be left on my own for multiple hours without any accidents.�I have met children and I am very laid back and see no issues being with them. I had about 3 kids all petting me at once and i just laid there and enjoyed the attention. That being said I still need you to advocate for me around kids and monitor all my interactions.�I have met one cat… let’s just say it did not work out well 🤤 the cat looked super yummy though! I do live in a home with a cat but we make sure he stays out of my space for his safety and I am kept on my leash. No cats for me please!!!�So far I have been fairly quiet and not wanting to play with any toys. I love a good brush outside. I enjoy laying beside my foster family. My dog foster sisters are great and after a few weeks I learned to love them. At first when I came down south I was just very quiet and did not want to be near the other dogs. But as time has gone on I have opened up more each day. Now I like to run around a little with my foster sisters but that took a few weeks.�Speaking of accidents I have only ever had 3 accidents the whole time I have lived with my foster family and that was because my family didn’t noticed my queues. I don’t go to the door but I will whine and let you know I am uncomfortable. That is your indication that I need to go out.�I am a bit of a flight risk they say. When I first came into my foster home I did manage to escape by jumping her 4ft fence and run away for a few hours until I was thankfully found about 5kms away from the house. When I am nervous I look for a way to get out. The things that cause this are people trying to put me in a small space or when people try and corner me. This is why it is so important that I am kept on leash inside and outside for a at least month. This sets ruled and boundaries for me.�I just had a pretty big surgery because the vet thought they saw stones in my urethra, but after the surgery it turns out I just have a very small urethra. So I should be kept on special Urinary food to try and ensure I don’t have any recurring UTI’s. So far I have been lucky but best to keep a watch just in case!�It is imperative that you keep my leash on me for AT LEAST 30 days in and outside the house. It will help prevent me from escaping and strengthen our bond. I have been on my leash for quite a few months with my foster.�All in all I am a very laid back old boy just looking for a forever home to live out the rest of my retirement with ❤️ if you think you might be the right family please go to the website below and apply for me, Norris ❤️ www.findingthemhomes.com
