AGE/GENDER: Baby 02/17/18, Female
BREED: SIBERIAN HUSKY
TEMPERAMENT: Playful and mischievous
WEIGHT: 30 lbs and growing!

HOUSE TRAINING: Not yet! she is a baby so he'll need a consistent schedule with multiple opportunities daily to go outside while he works on it. Puppies should not be considered reliable in regard to housetraining until 6-12 months of age. They're a lot like toddlers, who require diapers!
CRATE TRAINING: Good, she's young and trainable!
OTHER DOGS: Requires another dog in the home. It's a husky requirement. Opposite sex as Lucy is a bossy girl.
CATS: Best not to have cats in the home, as huskies have high prey drives.
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older
ADOPTION DONATION: $500
HEALTH: Lucy did suffer head trauma as a puppy and came to us with a fractured skull and eye orbit (most likely from the bite of another dog). She has healed well! Prior to adoption, puppies will be altered, microchipped, flea treated, and dewormed. Puppies are given vaccination boosters in our care; however, adoptive families will be responsible for the remaining vaccinations that puppies need. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with 30 days of free pet insurance provided by Shelter Care.

HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find Lucy a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Lucy is a Husky. As such, she does require another dog in the home (huskies are pack animals) and requires a home with a fenced yard (they are active, escape artists, destructive and vocal when bored).

LUCY is a puppy so she's playful and has a lot of puppy energy! She is super cute and fun, but a lot of work. Her forever family should be committed to lots of training - obedience, housetraining, and socialization. This will ensure that Lucy grows into a confident, well behaved adult! Puppies' personalities are dependent on their environment, and the structure and training they are given, in addition to socialization. Their personalities continue to grow and be shaped by their new adoptive families. Puppy daycare and socialization classes or puppy kindergarten are highly recommended for their personal development. She will more than reward you for all your hard work with lots of love, loyalty, and laughs.

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.

ABOUT MOTLEY ZOO:
Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Please check out our website, www.motleyzoo.org, especially pages, "Our Philosophy" and "Adoption FAQs" (both under "About Us") for more on adopting with a foster based organization and how our specific process works.

Please email adopt@motleyzoo.org to request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.

Thank you for considering one of our great, adoptable animals!

Rock on-
The Motley Zoo Crew
