Surprise, Surprise!!

So, here goes the long story...

I had a friend of mine who had an older sister who had purchased a 3 month old Siberian Husky. I'll be honest, I'm not sure where she got the pup from, but his older sister is a university student (20 years old). Me personally, I knew she didn't know the time to commit into a puppy... She was busy herself with university, clubs, and extra curriculum. Like she cared, she just wanted a puppy so off she went and purchased one. A week later, she realized she wouldn't be able to care for the dog anymore and that she had no time for it. This is her first dog too. So she gave the pup to her parents for them to watch after, they're first time dog owners too. They didn't know how to train dogs let alone discipline them. My friend had to constantly ask me on what to do with their dog's behavior because she (the puppy) was chewing everything, using the house as its washroom, scratching doors, etc. I had to go over there and teach them basics of training, potty training, and what they should and shouldn't do to discipline her. Unfortunately, after a horrible week and a half, they decided and they didn't want her either.

The first time she was re-homed to a chef who had 4 other dogs. They thought he would be a great owner just because he had four dogs and loved dogs... Two days later, they felt like he was a bad owner because he was away from the house too often for work. So, they took him back. Then they gave her to a family friend, until the family friend gave her back to them because she was untrained and that they couldn't handle her. They searched for another two weeks, and couldn't find a suitable owner. They actually thought of giving her up and dropping her off to some SPCA or rescue. I couldn't let that happen to such a young puppy, so I stepped in.

Now, I have a 4 month old female Siberian Husky in my hands. She is adorable but for sure, needs her training done quickly because my sister is already flipping out from her jumping and getting into everything. She seems very small for 4 months... I'm going to stop by at my vet with my ferret this weekend. Luckily, my landlord was very kind and let me keep my ferret and he said a dog is okay as well.

Here are a few photos. And, her name is Jodi.

Oh, my. Thanks for taking her in. You've got your work cut out for you. Arctic breeds can be difficult. The tend to be very independent.

Size-wise, Sibes aren't supposed to be very big. Dogs are 21-23.5 inches, and 45-60 pounds. Bitches are 20-22 inches, and 35-50 pounds.

ETA: My Ilka is 22 inches, and just under 50 pounds. At four months, she was maybe 18 inches tall, and 25 pounds.

Yeah, I heard. I had to pet sit a malamute for 6 months before and boy, he was pretty stubborn. I contacted a friend of mine who owns two huskies. She said they're very dramatic (In a cute way) and demand lots of attention. I can already tell that she's a smart little pup, just chooses to be a clown.

She looks adorable. Glad you stepped in huskies in my opinion are not for first time dog people (well at least for people who have no sweet clue about them and their needs)
