What a beautiful, active and happy girl! Nakita is all smiles and absolutely loves people.
She is a loving girl looking for a breed-savvy adopter. She gets along nicely with all people and some friendly male dogs, but no females or dog parks for this pretty girl as she would likely get herself into some sticky situations with the other strong ladies there. She does NOT do well when meeting dogs through a barrier or on leash, but with proper direction this could possibly improve. Her ideal adopter would either have experience with leash reactive dogs or would be prepared to work with trainers to help her react more appropriately when seeing other dogs on leash. She lives with a male dog currently and gets along with him very well. She does, however, believe all the food in the world is hers and while she doesn't act aggressively with people or dogs regarding food, she has no problem taking food that doesn't belong to her and will happily knock them over to make this a reality. For this reason she does need to be separated from other dogs during feeding time and should never be "free fed"
Nakita's previous owners mentioned she could be quite the escape artist as she is very good at jumping fences, because of this she is in need of a home that has very good fencing and owners with the ability to get her the mental stimulation, and physical activity a smart energetic girl like her needs. However, she has not tried or been able to escape from our six foot fences here at the Sanctuary.
It is very easy to fall in love with her beautiful face and completely charming personality, but before applying please do stop to think if you would be able to give her the exercise and training that she would need in order to reach her full potential. She needs someone who is comfortable with taking the lead. Someone who will love her and always treat her compassionately, but will set very clear and consistent rules, which they are willing to stick to when she decides to test and challenge them. We are looking for a home for her with someone who understands that although they are fluffy and adorable, Husky's are a unique kind of dog and can be a challenge if not trained properly. If you feel that you can offer this girl the loving home that she so deserves, please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org
