This sweet Siberian Husky is Arya - she has a coat color of black and white with blue eyes. She is a young pup, a little over a year old. Arya is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations, and has been microchipped. She walks fairly well on leash, but does need some additional command training.
Arya has a funny way of sitting - she likes to stick out her left hind leg. There is a good reason for this, as she had suffered a broken leg when she was younger. A good Samaritan heard about Arya and rescued her from her former owners, who were unable to take care of her after the needed surgery.
We were contacted by Harley's Hope Foundation who had paid for the initial expenses (bandage changes & x-rays) for her hind leg, and they had placed Arya in a great foster home. Fortunately, North Star was able to cover the remaining expenses (more x-rays and physical therapy).
After several months of allowing the leg to heal (with very little activity), and then going through physical therapy - she has been released by her orthopedic Doctor and is now ready to find her forever home!
She does great now running around the back yard with the other Husky in the foster home. She is playful and has tons of energy at this young age. We will be looking to place Arya in a new home that currently has a dog (preferably a male) with her same zest for life and approximately her same size.
Arya has not been around very young children, so we are unsure how she would do. She is excitable and it is possible that she could knock a young toddler down. For this reason we will be looking at possible adopters that have older children in the home.
If you have a fenced yard, with at least a 6' tall privacy fence that is secure - and you are interested in adding Arya to your home - please go to our web site, register, and then complete the adoption application for her. This is the first step in our adoption process and must be received by us before we can discuss Arya with you.
