Floofy is such a happy-go-lucky girl – and she’s lucky to be here! She was placed on the euthanasia list at Maricopa County for scaling a 5ft chain link fence to get to a dog on the other side. Unfortunately a fight ensued and she was listed as a result. Since getting out and decompressing, she has been nothing short of amazing with all humans and other dogs!
Floofy is really just a giant puppy. She loves everyone and everything and easily adjusted to her foster home. She has done very well with the other medium-large dogs in the home, as well as with dogs of all sizes in other private settings. She loves to play fetch and has enjoyed going for bike rides, walks, and hikes – a home that will provide her with appropriate outlets for her energy will be a must.
As a young husky, Floofy will definitely need continued training. She is very treat-motivated, but patience is something new for her. She has shown some destructive behavior in the home, though she was left out and unsupervised when it occurred. She would likely benefit from positive crate training. She did also have a tendency to jump on people and counters when she was first in the home, but this has improved greatly. She responds well to verbal correction. Her foster family has been working on her leash-walking skills as well as going out to restaurant patios and getting some much-needed socialization.
Though she is young and energetic, Floofy is also extremely sweet and friendly. She loves belly rubs, cuddling, and trying to be a lap dog (she doesn’t quite fit, but she doesn’t mind). She has done well around children of varying ages and has loved every person she has ever met. With some work on her manners, Floofy would make a great companion for an active adult, couple, or family looking for a big, lovable ball of fluff.
