My story

Will you be Mona's HERO??

If you'd really like to RESCUE a dog and really make a huge difference consider a Mona. She is far from perfect but who's perfect anyway? She has such a gentle, kind spirit. She LOVES walks and car rides. She has some medical issues but they are totally manageable. They have prevented her from getting adopted. Don't let that stop you from adopting her!!

Here's her back story:
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.

Since that time, many years ago, her epilepsy is managed well and the incontinence is almost completely gone. She only has occasional accidents overnight but we think that's more due to being stubborn about going outside to potty the last time at night, not because of incontinence. So making sure she goes outside to go potty around 10:00 p.m. would solve that likely.
Her seizures are controlled with medication and the bladder surgery took care of her leaking mostly. She is on medication for the incontinence which really helps!

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 so much and is both affectionate when she wants attention and aloof at times too, which is being what huskies can be!

She loves the snow, her crate, and her nylabones. She is very smart and 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'':)

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.
Adoption Donation for Mona is $ 425.00
