Hello, My name is Faith. I am an energetic, talkative, funny Siberian Husky girl looking for my forever home. I am looking for a home that has experience in huskies, that is very energetic and that will keep up with my training. My story: I was brought here from Animal control down by Detroit MI. I was adopted once from there but brought back due to some pretty sever issues that landed me on what is called the Euthanization list. I am not sure what that means, all I know is that I have heard that it isn't a good thing. The person at animal control along with another individual did not feel I should be euthanized. They found this lady at the rescue I am at now, and the rest is history. When I arrived here, I had absolutely NO training. I also had the 'MINE' complex, meaning what is mine is mine, what is yours is mine and I owned everything. I certainly felt I did not need to do anything that was asked of me. I knew a few basic commands but I wouldnt do them unless there was something in it for me. Yes, some of this is husky behavior, however, mine was to the extreme. Should anyone have tried to take something from me that I felt was mine ( and everything was mine) I would behave badly and sometimes bite them. HOWEVER, After a year of rehabilitation, leadership, training and desensitization with things I am a very well rounded girl. I know my basic commands such as, sit, wait, leave it, down, off, stay, bring it and shake. My foster mommy said I never had any direction in my life or leadership causing me to act out badly and develop the 'mine' complex to the extreme. My foster mommy can now place her hand into my food dish with food and I will eat around her hand ( I also had issues with being possessive over my food while in the dish). She can safely take things out of my mouth like toys, bones and anything else I decide to put into it that she needs to fish out (yup, now that is my NORMAL husky behavior showing up). She has desensitized, me from everything she can think of, given me direction, training and leadership. I am playful, I love to play fetch although, there are times when the bring the toy back consists of me bringing the toy to my foster mom , me waiting for her to get close and taking off with the toy. Its a fun game! I like to play with other dogs but I can be overbearing and dominant with some dogs. I do best with other male dogs but I can do well with other females with proper introductions. NO CATS or small animals (chickens etc) however, DO have a very high prey drive! I like to go for car rides, and I ride very well in a vehicle . I walk well on the leash now with minimal corrections unless I see something that gets me really excited. I know my basic commands such as sit, stay, down, off, leave it, shake and bring it (still working on that!). I also am a talker and most of the time I never shut up! If you would like to learn even more about me please contact my foster mommy through this site! Im sure she will talk forever about me! You can also apply to meet me at www.fewstepsfromhome.com and follow the link to the meet and greet/pre-adoption application. Hope to meet you soon! oh, bring treats! Im VERY treat motivated!!
