About Chief

Adoption Fee: $50.00
Siberian Husky
Age: Senior

Some sad news this holiday season for Chief. He originally came to us out of a puppy mill. He was adopted two years ago. Unfortunately a situation arose which younger family members moved back into the home and one of them was an infant. Chief didn't do well with the infant - it appears just jealousy was causing the problems but since we didn't personally witness them this is an assumption. It is reported he would steal the babies blanket, would try to move the baby and would mark the baby. He had always been fine with the other grandchild but it was not an infant invading what he probably perceived as 'his home'. From what we know it wasn't aggressive behavior but more dominance and insecurity issues. Chief is now 9 years old, is on daily Thyroid medication, and finds himself very sad and in the shelter. He gets along great with female dogs but has never been a real fan of other male dogs after his 7 years of living in captivity as a breeding dog. Chief will be difficult to find a new home for - he will take a long time to settle into a new home after this incident, he is on medication daily (albeit Thryoid medication is fairly inexpensive), and learning to trust new people again. Any help you can give us helping Chief find a new and loving home would be appreciated. Fortunately most of the staff that is here were also here when Chief was here before so he isn't around total strangers and that has helped. He is a very sweet dog, loves to be petted and used to love to play - not so much since he has come back as he appears pretty depressed. We have brought his shots current and he is desperately looking for a family to love him.
