ADOPT – Dasher – Siberian Husky
This 2 1/2 year old has no shortage of good looks! Dasher came to us with absolutely no boundaries or manners. Found as a stray in our local area it was clear that no one had ever worked with him. Over time he began to realize that life has rules and he was not exempt. With positive reinforcement, he has made significant progress but will require a home that can keep his sharp mind and very athletic body occupied. He is quite charming and loves to interact with his humans. Dasher will need daily exercise with no exceptions and will do best in a home that establishes a routine that he can depend on. He loves scootering and brisk walks. A securely fenced yard will be best which will provide another outlet for play and physical activity. When Dasher was initially brought in to rescue he did experience a few seizures. No underlying condition was identified and we put him on daily medication. He hasn’t had any seizures since (over a year now). This handsome young one is not for rookies but will thrive in a home with a dog-savvy (preferably breed savvy) owner. He would not do well in an apartment setting or in a home where he is left alone for long periods of time. Due to Dasher’s intensity, we cannot place him with other dogs or children. He will do best as an only dog in an experienced home. We expect Dasher will continue to make progress so check back frequently for updates.
