Breed: Siberian Husky
Age: 3½ years
My name is Laika. I’m a 3½ year old, very timid female Siberian Husky. I am spayed, up-to-date on my vaccinations and microchipped.
I know basic commands and I’m house trained, I like going for car rides and am playful and affectionate once I get to know and trust you. I’m not an escape artist and I don’t dig or jump fences, I’d rather stay home but I do have the usual husky prey-drive so I am not suitable to be with cats or small animals. I do have a few issues with crate training which I am working on as I sometimes get in a panic if I can’t see that anyone is there. I’m OK if I can see someone but I still don’t like being left alone, it gives me anxiety and I did break a crate once because of it.
However, I am very timid and shy and I have shown signs of fear aggression which I am working on with foster mom and a trainer. I will need someone very patient to help me with my issues, that were caused by being abandoned in a shelter, and help me become the sweet girl I know I can be, I just get so scared. I also need someone experienced because this fear makes me growl when someone tries to interact with me. I am petrified of life!
I was living with a toddler, but due to my extreme timidity and fear nipping, I am looking for a children-free home. I am reported as dog aggressive, sometimes they make me nervous so i don’t know how to react and have to learn to be more sociable. Right now, I need a nice quiet home with just you and me to help me blossom and trust again. I am located in Tillsonburg, ON and my adoption fee is $350.
