Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young, and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first.
The Siberian Husky is a dog breed that originated from Siberia and was later brought to Nome Alaska for sled-dog racing. They are a medium-sized dog with an average lifespan of around 12 to 15 years. Arlo is a five year old Siberian Husky, he is neutered and heartworm negative.
Kaylee is a granddaughter of one of our partners and works with rescue dogs on a daily basis. She saw a Husky, fell in love with the breed and decided that she really wanted one.
Late September of 2018, Kaylee had been asking for a Husky for a couple of years. She decided that she had to write a letter to “Santa” at school and asked him to bring her a Husky because her grandmother, Patricia, was not taking her seriously about getting her one!
Kaylee & Arlo Taking a Walk
What she didn’t know was that Patricia was looking for one and SURPRISE Santa just happened to let the perfect male husky show up on her Facebook page, he was an older puppy and wasn’t sold yet. Patricia contacted the owner and they said yes to kept Arlo until Christmas, Kaylee was really surprised.
Kaylee and Arlo were a good match, she describes him as super sweet! She really loves him and he adores her, however, as the years went on she began to realize that Arlo needed to be a part of a pack; sociability is in the Husky blood of the bred. She realized that she just doesn’t have the adequate time to devote to him daily. She wanted her Arlo to have a better life.
She realized he was so bored when he was in the pen all the time and that she didn’t have time to walk him like he should. Not to mention that the summer in Louisiana was unbearable with two months straight of triple digit heat. She had been discussing finding him a better home for the last several months with Patricia and decided to find him a home where he could be happy.
Arlo gets along with all the other dogs and true to his breed, he is good with children, however, he needs a home with no cats would be best! He knows his name well so Kaylee hopes the new family will keep his name. He needs a family that is familiar with the breed! Arlo does not have a mean bone in his body, however, true to the breed, he is just a little hard headed! He is so bored in the pen all day. He is easy to walk on a leash, loves the water and cold weather.
It takes real love to let a dog go, Kaylee has played, walked, fed and slept with Arlo for five years. She sees other rescue dogs go north and have such a great life and she feels bad that Arlo doesn’t have that kind of life with her in the South. She knows that she must always do what is best for the dog, she does it every day with her grandma’s rescue. She wants him to have a better life, she told us that she wants him to have a real Husky life in the snow and a home that would give him more attention.
Arlo gives unconditional love to everyone he meets, he has a charming disposition and a playful manner. Do you have room in your heart for a new best friend? Because Arlo wants nothing more than to share his heart with someone who can appreciate it for what he truly is: SPECIAL
ABOUT THE SIBERIAN HUSKIE BREED
A Sociable Creature
They are, first and foremost, very loving and gentle dogs, who give a lot of affection and love to receive it.
They’re good with children (though, of course, they should be supervised at all times) and friendly towards strangers. For this reason, I don’t recommend them if you want a guard dog, as they are likely to greet an intruder with a wag of the tail rather than a menacing bark.
Siberian Huskies shouldn’t be left alone for too long (no more than 3 or 4 hours), and they like to live with other dogs.
Needs Tons Of Exercise
Like the Alaskan Husky and the Alaskan Malamute, the Siberian Husky was bred to haul cargo, meaning they are used to doing a lot of activity and are, therefore, very high-energy dogs.
As adults, they need at least 1 hour of vigorous exercise a day. They make an excellent match for someone who is sporty and likes doing activities such as hiking, jogging, or running.
Likes Having A Job
It is worth investing in a doggie backpack to fulfill his need to have a job. In these packs, you can store bottles of water to keep you both hydrated on a hike. Carrying a backpack with this weight will satisfy his instinct.
Needs A Lot Of Maintenance!
Apart from everyday shedding (which is a pretty high amount), these dogs ‘blow out’ their entire undercoat twice a year – in the spring and the fall. That means – yep! – those hairs will be flying around, getting on the carpet, and testing your patience levels.
During these times, you should probably just leave the vacuum cleaner where you can see it at all times! To avoid excessive shedding, groom your Siberian Husky daily from head to tail.
During shedding season, you should be prepared to do this for up to 30 minutes, and don’t be surprised if you pull out piles of hair. Sometimes it might even seem you could make another Husky out of the amount that comes out!
Has A Hard Time In The Heat
Like their Alaskan Husky and Alaskan Malamute cousins, these dogs do not do well in the heat. If you live somewhere where the temperature reaches 80 degrees (26ºC) or over, don’t get a Siberian Husky.
They should not be exercised in temperatures above 68 degrees (20ºC). In the summer months, it is better to take them out in the morning and the evening when the temperature is lower.
A Talented Escape Artist
Like the Alaskan Husky, he can run fast (at up to 28 mph, or 40 kph), and he has epic levels of endurance. Until you trust hish recall, I advise you keep him on a leash, or off-leash in an enclosed area, as, if he gets away from you, I can tell you now, you won’t catch him!
Another warning: he can jump high. In fact, the bred has a reputation for it and has been known to jump fences 4 or 5 feet tall. You should make sure your garden fence is at least 6 feet tall to avoid escaping.
Needs A Strong Pack Leader
Siberian Huskies are known to have a stubborn, independent streak, which can make them a bit tricky to train, especially if you are a first time owner.
With a Siberian Husky, you need to lay down the rules from the start, and firmly. You must establish yourself as pack leader, and be authoritative and consistent. As he has a strong pack instinct, if he does not see you as the leader, your Husky may try to establish himself at the top of the pack, which can lead to undesirable behaviors.
If you have young children, it is especially important to teach your Siberian that he is below you and your family in the hierarchy. He must respect your children and never be allowed to jump up at them. In the same way, you must teach your children to follow some rules: never pull the dog’s hair, tail or ears, and don’t chase him.
