27-04-13 Moshi is a 2 year old husky. He was extremely loved, but his mum has had to go to hospital and can no longer have him. No friend or family member could have him either and she was terribly sad as she felt the only thing left was have him put to sleep. Of course we stepped in, and have been brought a happy friendly beautiful husky. He has met and greeted dogs and humans happily and we know is house trained good with children though can be boisterous. He has not met cats so at the moment we wouldn't home him with one. Moshi travel well in the car and as you see he is a lovely and stunning dog.
Moshi is a beautiful, big, overgrown puppy at heart, and has no concept of his size, or strength when bounding around the place.
He is stunning to look at with his ice blue eyes, but don’t be fooled by his pretty looks, Moshi can be a handul!
He can be very boisterous especially when in play mode , and will think nothing of nipping your bottom if you try to walk away from him! He will jump for toys, and would therefore be best homed in a family where any children are older.
Moshi needs to be rehomed to a husky experienced home as he does show many husky traits such as selective hearing and stubbornness.
Moshi has his own set of rules such as:-
- If you leave it somewhere I can get it then it’s mine.
- If it falls on the floor it’s mine.
- If it’s furry and squeaks it’s mine.
- If it runs away from me it’s mine.
- If you don’t eat that soon it’s mine.
- If it’s a wooden spoon it’s mine! (especially if you’ve just made a curry).
Moshi loves the company of other dogs, and would prefer to be rehomed with other dogs who are equally as playful.
He is strong on the lead and will need more lead training, but he does walk well when corrected or on a short lead. He does show interest in cats, birds, sheep, horses and frogs and will pull if he sees them, although he has not been tested off lead.
Moshi can be food possessive and will snarl, growl and snap if you try to take food (that he has stolen!) off him so he will need more training in the future. However, he will sit quietly and watch the other dogs, and pups eating, and does not pester us at the table. He is also happy for you to try to take a toy from his mouth as it’s all part of his little plan to encourage you to play with him.
He has been well trained and knows all basic commands (just chooses to ignore most of them).
He is house trained, travels well in the car and sleeps through the night quietly apart from when there are foster pups here, then he silences any of their nocturnal noises with his husky howls.
The adoption fee for a dog is £170 for a dog at the centre and £180 for one in foster. If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so.
