Meet Arya, the sweetest dog around! Arya has had a tougher life than most dogs, she came to us severely underweight, suffering from drug toxicity and neglect.
Despite her tough upbringing Arya has been an absolute inspiration to everyone she meets. Nothing in life keeps the happy from this dogs soul. She is always ready to adventure, play games or just cuddle on the couch. Any activity you choose, Arya will be right there ready to do it with full enthusiasm.
This fun and loving girl has all of the typical husky traits. This means Arya is full of personality! She will be more chatty than your average dog, she has a high prey drive and will chase anything that is small and could resemble a mouse, cat or squirrel! She doesn’t seem to escape any fences since being in our care, but we would recommend a fully fenced yard and being diligent about time outside alone.
Arya loves play dates with other dogs as long as they are her size or bigger. She doesn’t enjoy sharing anything like food, toys or treats so new owners will need to keep those separated with doggy playdates. Since Arya doesn’t like to share, and we don’t blame her; she has never had things before! She will require a home where she is the star of the show; so no other pets for this gal!
If you think you have the home, heart and lifestyle that Arya deserves, follow the steps below to meet her!
