His striking appearance and mesmerizing blue eyes will capture your heart in a moment. HIs friendly nature with just a slight touch of cool reserve will keep you loving him forever. And, his “talking” will surprise and delight you! Huskies are an amazing breed and Blue is a perfect example of theIr beauty, independence, intelligence and sociability.
Blue has been with his humans since he was a puppy. He has been showered with love and attention - the center of their family. But, now, due to a change in their lives they must part with him. The humans are leaving Canada and re-locating to another country. With advice from their vet, they have made the decision to find him a new family rather than put him thru the very long flights to their new location. It is a very sad decision, but the best one for Blue.
Blue gets along with everyone and will welcome them all into his home! Strangers are just friends he hasn’t met yet. He is affectionate but doesn’t need to pester anyone for Constant attention. He likes kids and other dogs - being part of a pack is in his DNA so he is a fabulous family member. He will never be a guard dog, protecting his home and family, although, he does sound the alarm when strangers approach. But, to him, everyone is welcome - maybe even an intruder! It’s been said that socializing to him is better than bacon (well, maybe).
Blue is cuddly but he’s not a stuffed toy. He’s athletic and loves the out-doors and won’t lay around on the bed all day! He loves all kinds of exercise like biking and hiking but his favourite activity is walking off-leash on trails. He needs two good walks everyday. He is great on-leash too and doesn’t pull - only when he wants to greet someone he knows! He loves going to dog parks and enjoys his days playing with dogs at the doggy care he attends a couple of times each week. He’s mastered some basic commands like sit, down etc but he gets a little distracted if he has socializing to do! He isn’t a big barker but you will hear that Husky Howl whenever there is a siren nearby.
In March, Blue was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy (when the cause is not known) which is fairly common in Huskies. He was put on medication (2 tablets each day) and has not had another seizure. He was just recently seen by his vet and his results were all good. Other than the seizure disorder, he is completely healthy with no other issues.
Huskies are strong-willed and free-spirited so a confident owner will be best for Blue. He’ll need a completely fenced yard so he can explore and entertain himself a little when he’s outside (he likes to be outside sometimes when it’s cool). He isn’t used to being left alone very much and probably wouldn’t do well, so his people need to be home a lot. He thrives on lots of attention and affection and deserves to be part of the family.
If you love Huskies, are energetic, enjoy the outdoors and are totally committed to your dogs, Blue might be the one for you. He is loving and entertaining and as perfect as he can be.
