Luna is a truly wonderful dog that we sadly need to find a new home for due to her human family’s health issues. She is very sweet and loving, and has never had any health issues of any kind. Luna is an extremely petite husky, weighing in at only 40 lbs. Luna is a very easy dog to love, and to live with.
Luna absolutely loves to be around people and other dogs. Ideally she would love a home where people are home during the day. Luna is great with kids, including young children and babies. She would be happy to have a human or canine brother or sister in the same household, OR to be an only child. She howls with excitement whenever people come to the door (making her a good ‘alarm’ dog), however she would not be a good guard dog as she loves all people including strangers!!! She gets very excited when meeting other dogs, and does best meeting them off leash as she immediately wants to roughhouse and chase which results in pulling and tangling of leashes if they are involved. Of course Luna loves to go on walks or to the dog park, but once she’s had enough exercise she loves to curl up and cuddle with people and watch TV. Luna loves the outdoors in all seasons. She likes to go lie in a sun patch, even on some of the hottest summer days.
Luna knows her basic commands such as OFF, SIT, STAY, COME, etc. but she doesn’t always listen, so she can’t be off leash anywhere near a road or open space. She walks well on a leash, sometimes with some minor pulling when you first start walking because she is so excited, or of course if she sees a squirrel! She has spent lots of time off leash up at the cottage where she happily wanders around a few fenced acres and comes back when she’s ready to rest and eat. She lives with an indoor cat and has done so for most of her life with no issues, however she does chase (and often catch) small prey in the backyard, so she might not be safe with an outdoor cat where her prey drive could be triggered. If you leave the room with delicious food on the table or counter, Luna sometimes can’t resist helping herself to a snack.
She currently sleeps on her own bed in the same room as her owner, and she knows never to go on the furniture. If you choose to invite her up however, she would be overjoyed to snuggle with you on the sofa or bed.
Luna has no allergies and likes lots of different foods. She is easy to feed, you can leave her food out and she will eat when she needs to without becoming overweight. She also loves to be the ‘pre wash cycle’ and lick off the human dishes before they go in the dishwasher! She loves to have rawhide as a treat, however she cannot have bones of any kind even ‘dog safe’ ones as she will chew them up and eat the whole thing and then have a lot pain digesting.
As a husky, Luna sheds her whole undercoat a couple times a year which means a lot of fur in your house and on your clothes. She also likes to howl and talk at times. Please make sure you are really okay with that before getting any husky!
Luna is spayed and her vaccines are up to date.
