Husky/Border Collie Mix
4 months old
Hi...my name is Livia...I feel a little awkward talking about myself, but here goes...
I am a Husky mix...possibly with border collie, or at least that is what my foster parents tell everyone. I really didn’t know my real parents, but that is another story. I’ve been told that I have the eyes of an Aussie. Speaking of my eyes, while I hate to brag, my eyes are probably my best feature, although I’ve been told I have many fine features. My eyes are blue; sky blue; lagoon blue; breathtakingly blue. You should check them out, but be careful, once you get a good look at them, you are going to want to take them home...hopefully with the rest of me!
I’m guessing that I’m about 4-5 months old, although I don’t feel a day over 3 months. I am a quickly growing puppy, and I weigh about 25 lbs now. I’m very healthy, spayed, vaccinated, and I have that chip implanted so that I can always find you. Like most high-performing Huskies, I like exercise...you can’t walk me enough! I would love to have a yard to run around in, and doggie friends to play with. I am an active puppy who is ready to explore the world.
OK, OK, I admit that I’m a little nosy. I love closets and to find stuff under tables but mostly I love to watch people and other animals, even birds and racoons. I can sit for hours...well, maybe minutes just people watching. Speaking of people, I really like them, and have yet to meet anyone that doesn’t like me, and I always get compliments on my eyes. I do have sharp puppy teeth, and no concept of personal space, so older kids would be best. I also get along well with other dogs and have already made some good friends in my neighborhood. I can’t help but notice that they are jealous of my eyes, but I don’t make a big deal out of it.
Right now I’m sleeping in a crate, but that is really just to get some alone time. I think that once I get a little more comfortable, I’ll be ready to just sleep on my bed out in the open. I really like to gnaw on things, so I encourage you to keep an eye on me and keep my toys nearby. If you really want to keep me happy, give me an antler! I could chew on an antler for hours. I am definitely all puppy, so having a variety of fun (appropriate) things to chew on will make both of us happier. My foster family is helping me ‘learn the ropes’ with potty training, and I am getting better, but will need my new family continue working with me on it.
I’m still a little high-maintenance, but I am totally worth it. Yes, I’m young, I’m nosy, I like to chew on stuff... that is my way of saying, “play with me”! Most importantly I am really smart and eager to learn. I already know a few commands, like ‘sit’, ‘paw’, and ‘down’. I hope my future family plans to take me to a positive reinforcement training class, because I am really good at learning stuff.
If you are fun loving, enjoy being outdoors (running through sprinklers, too!), like to play and give belly rubs, and are ready to commit to a life long relationship, you might be the one for me!
