Buffy

1yr old Female Siberian Husky

This young girl is incredibly sweet and small at just 39lbs – she was found as a stray. Poor little Buffy wouldn’t put weight on her front right paw, and upon intake county medical staff x-rayed and found she had a full break. This is our second broken leg husky from the county shelter in the last month!

Buffy’s leg is splinted and she has been receiving bandage changes and x-rays to monitor her healing – so far so good! She’s feeling so much better she seems to forget her leg is broken sometimes. 

Buffy gets along well with other dogs large and small. She LOVES humans. She’s very sweet and likes to cuddle with you – she wants to be near her person wherever they go and will follow you all over the house. She’s very much a companion type of dog and would do best in a home where she is not alone a lot. She also is a talker, and very much a typical husky!

She hasn’t been around children yet, but given that she has shown no aggression at all towards people, it’s very likely that older children would be ok – she has a lot of energy and some playful husky mouthiness (she’ll grab her foster’s bathrobe to get her attention), so we’re thinking it would be best to avoid small children who may be a bit more unpredictable around her.

She has not been with cats, so an intro would be required if we wanted to see how she did with them. 

If you are interested in adopting Buffy and continuing her healing in her forever home, we would love to have you meet her! She will need regular appointments with the veterinarian that she currently has been seeing until she is healed – likely through mid-September.
