Siberian Husky

(YouTube video available) 'Hi, I'm Audie! I'm told I'm a goofy funny dude. I can be talkative when I really need something. I love people and snuggles! But also need to get outside to exercise, and read daily local news! It helps my mental and physical health. Who likes to stay-home all day anyway?! I was found on the streets of Lebanon, very malnourished, anemic and with mange eating my face away. I tried to scavenge for food for a living, but humans and other dogs would scare me away. I had given up all hope in this world, then one day a lovely lady found me! She is my rescue mom, who took me to a vet, gave me all the medical care and provided a safe place to shelter. My recovery took a few months, and now I'm ready to find a forever home where I get lots of love and exercise. I met the awesome friends at PawesomeBaby, who is bringing me to the Pacific Northwest next month, to find me that lovely family. I love humans, both big and small alike! I get super excited when meeting people and forget my manners. I may do better in a home with bigger humans. I love making doggie friends! But first, I need help to trust the dogs that they like to play with me. Especially male dogs; they were not nice to me in the past. I trust female dogs and submissive male dogs easily, and loves to play with them. I'm learning new things at my foster home, such as staying out of the kitchen, and my rescue mom says I'm smart and a fast learner. I do well with humans who engage with me. Would you like to meet me when I come to Vancouver next month, and make me family?' %BD'%BD|. About Audie: ----- Audie is a sweet husky boy, 20 kg, estimated to be 2.5 yrs old. He is very friendly and affectionate with people, both adults and children. He loves having a doggie companion. NOTE: available for adoption in WA state, Northern OR, Vancouver BC %BD'%BD| He loves: ----- %BD' To go on walks! He loves exploring the outdoors! He makes a great hiking, walking or jogging buddy. %BD' To be around humans or other friendly dogs! He prefers to be in the company of others, just like all pack animals. He is intimidated by male dogs. If you slowly introduce him to new dogs, he will get make friends and play with female dogs and playful male dogs. He actually enjoys the company of other dogs, and played with his kennel mates at the boarding. %BD' Training when treats are involved! Aka positive reinforced training. His training needs we know so far is listed below. %BD' To shed fur! ;) Just like all double coated breed. %BD' To chase squirrels & bunnies during walks! Not suitable in a home with cats or bunnies. %BD' Enjoys apartment, townhome or a house with private yard! He thrives on daily walks, so it doesn't matter what type of home he goes to. As long as you enjoy getting out as much as he does. He gets bored easily, having another playful dog will help him. However, if you do have a yard, it must be fenced escape proof and the fence must be at least 6 ft high. The prey drive can get him to escape short fences. %BD'%BD| Health status: ------- He had anemia and mange when he was rescued. He has recovered from everything and had been gaining weight since then. He will need breed appropriate diet just like all huskies (high protein, low card, wheat & soy free; raw diet would be the most ideal, or mix of both would work too). %BD'%BD| Training status: ------- Audie has the following training needs. (A) He has fear of the streets from his time as a stray. He can look cautious at first, get startled and turn if you touch from behind. Or jump back if something looks scary. But he quickly relaxes if you praise and give treats. The more he gets out and walk in a new area, the more confident he gets. This is a trait with all dogs who had to fend for themselves on the street. (B) He is reactive to strange dogs running up close to him. He can bark and growl. But he responds well if you divert and distract him, giving praise. He does make great friends with friendly dogs, if you introduce him slowly and go at his pace to trust the dog. (C) He can counter surf, get into people food, but seems to listen when his foster mom says 'no'. Most dogs get over this tendency, after being at a home for a few weeks, and realize that food and treats will come to them. Not leaving food out open, and consistently teaching to staff off dining table and counter top helps. %BD'%BD| [IMPORTANT] Below listed requirements are meant for everyone's safety. %BD' If you have other dogs, then you must also be knowledgeable and have good hands on experience with running a multi-dog home to be able to adopt a dog from us. What's expected of the adopter is just keeping basic house rules like (1) keep the dogs apart when feeding, monitor & put away left over food, (2) help them build mutual trust before leaving alone with treats, toys around (3) keep dogs out of kitchen when handling food etc %BD' If you have children at
