Meet Winter

Winter is a beautiful 7 year old female Siberian husky.

She has been surrended due to owner not being able to give her to the attention she needs.

Winter is a gorgeous girl who loves attention from her carers, but not necessarily younger ambitious puppies who want to play with her. She's a complete sook around humans and would happily sit by your side all day.

She's not particularly active, but gets excited when it's walk time or to go for a ride in the car. Winter is terribly overweight, so her new owner should be willing to spend the time in providing her the adequate exercise she requires, although it will be slow going, as she tires easily. In saying that, during her time with us, she has lost some weight and proven to walk further than when we first met her.

She's protective of her food and will growl if another dog goes near her food or disturbs her peace but I haven't found her to be snappy at her foster carer.

We've discovered that she shakes hands, particularly when she knows she's getting a treat and at dinner time.

She's absolutely fine at the dog park and doesn't pay attention to the other dogs, but will mostly just sit instead of running around.

We believe Winter can be adopted by herself, but it would be good for her to have a companion if you already have another husky.

Due to her age, Winter does have some health issues:
Arthritis. Although her weight won't help here, with exercise you may find she will improve. We've also been mixing in "Aging Dog" powder to give her the vitatmins she needs.

Fly blown ears (although this is being treated with a repellent and improvements happening).
Cloudy eyes - the vets have advised this is not cataract and whilst it looks bad, she does have great eye-sight even though it may be a bit cloudy for her.
Zinc deficiency - her nose is a tell-tale sign that she has a zinc deficiency which can be easily treated by supplementing her diet with this vitamin.

IIMPORTANT: You CANNOT have a house with smaller animals such as cats, pocket pets or smaller dogs - as Husky-bred nature is to attack.

You would need a fully enclosed yard that is escape proof.

If you would like to meet Winter, please contact us to meet the beautiful old girl.

Winter was adopted on 08 December 2019 after 6 months in foster care
