3yr old female Husky/Malamute mix
Bonded pair, must be adopted with her brother Freki
Lucii and her brother Freki both come to us from some unfortunate circumstances – their owner fell on some hard times and lost his home, and tried for months to find placement for the pair together. We agreed to help after all other avenues had been exhausted – the pair are currently in a boarding facility, but would just LOVE to have a foster home to stay in while they wait for their forever home!
They are both very adventurous, playful and outgoing and keep keep each other entertained for hours – they do play more on the rough side, so it may be a little more intimidating for those not familiar with crazy husky play, but it is definitely always play between these littermates.
Of the two of them, Lucii is a little more of a trickster. Around people and Freki she is sweet and well mannered. She does have a tendency to resource guard (with other dogs, and with humans she does not know) and should only be with other large, well-mannered dogs. She is also great with children. She has been around children as young as 3 and has done well. We ALWAYS recommend supervision and caution when it comes to large dogs and young children, and will require an experienced owner to place in a home with young children. Lucii is a sweet cuddly girl who loves attention!
They are both huskies of course, so training can be a bit tough with this stubborn breed, but once they bond to a human and get the attention they need, they do follow commands. According to their previous owner, they know off, down (flat hand if they jump, point to the ground to lay down), sit, wait (closed fist, not stay) “be polite” if they are being nosy, “be nice” if they are playing too rough.
Both are crate trained in separate crates, as well as do well in the car and with potty-training. As with most huskies this age, they do pull on a leash. Both are amazing loving dogs, but they do need to stay together.
Fill out a form if you can either foster, or adopt this fun husky pair!
