Congratulations to our resident ratbag, Lucy for finding her forever home with Kaity & Wade. Thanks to foster parents, Emily & Joe for looking after her in the meantime and also to the Kuhn family for sponsoring her.
Happy furrytail ending, Lucy!
You may ask...is she a Husky? Is she a Malamute? Well actually, I'm both! I'm Lucy and I'm a beautiful blend...dainty Husky size with a big Mally diva personality.
Don't say you weren't warned about me being a primadonna...I like the spot-light, to be the centre of attention. Love me, I demand it!
I’m dog-social, but will need my canine housemate to be a laidback male who is happy to take a backseat, as I’ll be first in line for human attention every time. Any other dog must queue behind me or I’ll have something to say about it. You’ll also need to feed us separately as I don’t like to share my food.
Alternatively, I’ll be content as an only dog if there’s someone home more often than not and I can be the centre of your universe. Gentle isn't really what I'm all about. I play a little too rough with small dogs and need to be separated from cats as I’m inclined to chase. Chickens and other pocket pets are my idea of fine dining. Any children in my new home should be aged 10+ as I can be boisterous and tend to jump up to give hugs.
I’ll need a minimum of 5ft fencing to keep me safe and secure in your yard. I’m not a digger but I am an opportunist and will happily push past you at the gate if you’re not on the ball. Of course I’m housetrained and aspire to be inside the house whenever you’re there, though I’m not worried about spending my day outside while you’re at work. When you get home, you will lavish me with attention, preferably while we cuddle on the couch. I live for your love and adoration. I know what I like, I know what I don’t and I’ll have no hesitation in communicating it to you. How else am I supposed to train you?
You’ll need a spare 30 minutes minimum a day to come for a stroll with me. Walking gets me very excited initially, but after the first 5 minutes, I settle down and don’t pull on the lead so much. A game of tug-o-war in the evening rounds out my daily exercise regime. I’ve got the basics down as far as training – sit, stay, shake – but there’s more for me to learn, so please feel free to expand on my manners. Both my breeds are known to be headstrong and stubborn and I’m no different. An owner experienced with either Huskies or Malamutes could be just what I need.
