ADOPT – Nikka – Siberian Husky
Meet Nikka! This beautiful girl is full of love to give. Her prior owner loved her deeply, but due to severe health issues had to give her up to us so that Nikka can find a good home. Nikka is 10 years old, but still has life left to live. She didn’t understand why she was leaving her beloved Mommy, but has adjusted to life in her new foster home. Because of her Mom’s health challenges, Nikka didn’t get much exercise. She’s overweight and now on a diet, and she receives regular walks to help get back into shape. Nikka really enjoys her walks as long as you don’t go too fast and can pull a bit when she gets excited. She is even starting to jog a little! She is a little stiff at times (typical senior wear and tear) so she’s on supplements for her joints. Losing weight will likely improve these issues as well.
Nikka tolerates her 1-year old foster brother, but he’s got a lot of energy and she would probably prefer living with an older dog. She would be fine as an only dog as well. She loves chewing Nylabones. She is ok with people handling her food and bones, and will glaringly give up a stuffed animal to her human friends. However, she does not share nicely with other dogs when it
comes to her stuffed baby so supervision would be necessary if there is another dog in the house. Nikka is trustworthy in the home. She is house-trained and doesn’t get into mischief like a younger husky. Nikka likes laying on the carpet or on cool tiles, and will occasionally nap on the sofa, but doesn’t seem interested in a dog bed. She loves companionship once she feels comfortable with new people, and when her foster brother howls she joins right in. She will also talk to her foster family when she feels like attention is required. She has enjoyed the recent snow. Nikka will make the perfect companion for a lucky adopter that is looking for a quiet, easy going friend.
