Lovely Lady Luna is so named as she really has a sweet and gentle temperament, under the disguise of her innocently stunning Husky looks :)
 
Luna loves the company of other dogs and must go to a home with at least one other dog for company. She gets along with both males and females, but is a bit too curious on the smalls so medium to large size dogs are best. A Husky playmate would be ideal.
She is in foster with two Huskies that have quickly become her BFF's, she also lives with two Chihuahua crosses and interacts well when supervised but for safety's sake she is never left unsupervised with them. Chihuahua's are fierce after all :) :) :)
 
Luna's Foster Family have teenage children and she is suited well to this, she enjoy's their company. Luna has not interacted with children under teens so we are looking for a home with older children. 
She's quite an affectionate girl and enjoys a good cuddle on the couch, Luna will need inside access to the home whilst people are home. 'Backyard dog' is not in Luna's future. 
 
Toys are fun, destroying toys is the main objective, those teeth were made for chewing, and that's just what they'll do. She's pretty good at not chewing things she shouldn't, but toys be aware you are destined for the nom-noms. 
 
Luna can suffer from some separation anxiety so needs a home with someone home more often than not. 
She is able to spend time home without people present but at this stage the lengths should not be too long, full time hours would be too much for her. Her new family should work on helping her to feel comfortable home alone for increasing periods of time. 
 
She's also been a serial escape artist in the past so secure fencing is a must. 6ft + digproof minimum.
She will need regular daily exercise and training. 
Luna's Foster Hero's have begun her basic training and she is progressing well. She has taken to loose leash walking very quickly. 
 
Luna's adopters will be enrolled in a weekly group obedience course, included in her adoption fee to help continue this training and help her settle into her new home. 
 
Being a Husky Luna does have high prey drive, she will need a home without cats, pocket pets or livestock. She will also need to be exercised on leash or in fenced areas when outside the home as she has no recall at this stage. 
 
Luna has been through a number of inexperiences homes that were not suited to the breed prior to arriving with us. 
Whilst she has settled beautifully into her foster home, Huskies are not suited to everyone. With the right home, who understands the Siberian Husky traits well, Luna is not a difficult dog to own. 
Skimp on the training, exercise, mental stimulation etc and you will come undone with a Husky so if you are new to the breed be sure to do your research first. 
 
So if you are after a fun-loving, affectionate, playful, intelligent and at times challenging, very hairy ball of fluff on 4 legs, perhaps Luna is the dog for you. 
 

Medical Notes

Luna has grade 2 luxating patella in her left hind leg. This means no surgery is required at this stage, however she should not do excessive exercise, or be put in higher strain situations (eg no sledding). At this stage we've not had any issues with it so far during normal walking and play with other dogs but it does have the potential to pop out. In the future Luna may require pain relief, or surgery if the condition worsens.
