ADOPT – Shadow – Siberian Husky
Nine year old Shadow was adopted by a single man as a puppy and was very well loved. Sadly, his beloved Dad was diagnosed with cancer two years ago and fought hard to stay with his beloved pup. He lost his battle just recently and parted ways with his constant companion. Shadow was a great comfort to him throughout his treatments and decline and was always by his side.
As Shadow was so loved, the man’s 90 year old parents vowed to find a safe home for him since they were unable to keep him in their retirement community. They were determined to not leave him behind in a shelter and while tasked with the overwhelming job of settling their son’s affairs and clearing out his home, they persistently reached out to rescues. We knew that Shadow needed us and we wanted to provide the peace of mind this man’s parents so deserved.
As expected Shadow was initially confused and is still settling in with his new life. It’s a different world from what he was accustomed to over the past two years. He’s rediscovering a more active life and does best when new things are introduced slowly. He’s a friendly, active guy and loves to play with his toys. He’s relaxing in his foster home where we’re still learning about him. Shadow will do best in a lower key, quiet home with a patient adopter willing to give him the time and consistency he is looking for. He is strong and active so his adopter will need to be able to keep up with that Siberian energy. A fenced yard would be ideal. Shadow is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and vet care, and is microchipped. No cats or small critters, please. Shadow has never lived with another dog however we are working on introducing him to various dogs of similar size as time permits. We’re sure that in the right environment this handsome guy will thrive!
- No cats or small animals
- Vaccinations and vet care up to date
Shadow will do best in a home where he’s not left for long periods of time. He’s a vocal guy and will need to live in a home where his friends and neighbors appreciate his Siberian songs. Shadow is not accustomed to living with children so at the present time we would not be comfortable placing him in a home where he’d be exposed to young children.
