Sirius is estimated 2-3yrs old and is a white Siberian Husky mix coming in from Clovis, NM from a high kill shelter. We don’t have an exact arrival date but his arrival will definitely be expedited if we can get a committed foster for him on the ground in Arizona.
He is friendly with other dogs and with people. Cats and small children are unknown. He came into the shelter with a head wound that has since healed very well in the time he has been in boarding in NM – he loves people so much and is grateful for all the attention he can get! He can also be an escape artist when he is in a new situation and is not given enough attention, so his foster or adopter must be aware and able to work with him and give attention when he arrives!
Details on Fostering:
With fostering, you must be aware that evaluations done to date are minimal and that this is not the same as adopting a dog from us – with our dogs available for adoption we have already internally evaluated behaviors and have much more information as far as details like kennel and leash training, potty training, etc.
When you foster you are truly helping to save a life! Our fosters are the ones we rely on to be able to save these dogs from euthanasia at overcrowded shelters, and we rely on our fosters to report on behaviors within the home and let us know of progress and general notes. We always hop to it to move foster dogs from fosters if there are any major aggression issues that stem out of nowhere (we try to always avoid this happening as much as possible and it is not a common occurrence!) but in general, a foster must expect to deal with some unknowns like potty-training reliability, counter-surfing, kennel-training, leash-training, and basics. We do not and never will consider aggression a basic, so please know that we would not be placing a dog with aggression issues with a foster without fully 100% disclosing all details.
