Skye is your typical, gorgeous husky that loves to howl and tell you about her day. Skye came to the SPCA after she was found wandering the highway and is now in search of her forever home. She is an incredibly high energy dog that loves to run around the field and play with volunteers. If left inactive for too long she does become bored and has a history of digging out of her yard. Skye requires a home with no small children but she should be fine with teens that are old enough to understand how to interact with dogs calmly and properly. Additionally, Skye is looking for a home where she will be the only pet. We have been working on her reactivity and social skills when it come to meeting other dogs, but she will continue to require proper, controlled and slow introductions. Dog parks are definitely not her idea of a good time. While in the care of the shelter Skye has been started on medication to help manage her separation anxiety. So she will need her future guardian(s) to be prepared to help her with this, as she can become destructive when left alone for too long.
It is important to note that huskies are a particular breed, meaning proper research should be done prior to submitting an application. Skye requires a patient owner who is willing to train her and allow her to become the best possible version of herself!
An adoption counseling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.
Please note due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website https://spca.bc.ca/adoption/how-to-adopt/ for more information. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received an application.
***Due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their application. We are not able to call all applicants.
