Mika came to 4 lucky paws from a pound in Ontario. This girl did not like the crazy atmosphere that comes with pound life and things weren't looking promising for finding her forever home. Mika has been with us for over a month now and this is what her foster has to say:
"As I mentioned in the previous e-mails she has been good with me since Day 1. I was offered belly-rubs on day two, and since then she has been quite affectionate, responsive to being called, and will even try to get up on the couch or the bed to snuggle. Sitting on the floor with her results in her pressed up entirely against you and rolling on her back for as much belly-rubs and neck massages as she can get.
After spending the day together in Kevin's office she was much more comfortable with him. She is still slightly more nervous about him sometimes and a bit more hesitant to come to him - sometimes if he calls her over she'll pause before coming or decide to go to her bed instead. Most of the time though she is happy to be pet by him or get belly rubs, and she does love to sleep under his desk when he's working.
She is excellent in the house, she likes to find somewhere to lay down and chill out, even if it's been a really rainy day where she's gotten less outside activity than she would like. She loves being in our backyard, and will wander around contentedly for a little while, although is happier if one of us or Willow is out with her. There has been no destructive behaviour, and after the first couple days she's actually a quiet dog (there was a lot of barking in the first few days). She IS a mouthy husky in that we will get scolded if we take too long to get them leashed up and out on our walk, or if she knows we've added something exciting to her dinner and we're taking too long to get it to her. But in the past couple days the only time she has barked at me is when I am making her sit and stop jumping up before I put her dinner bowl down. I have the impression that as she gets more and more comfortable she may turn out to be the type of husky who can occasionally be loud when she is excited and happy about things, but her defensive barking has tapered right off."
As you can see this beautiful girl was very misunderstood in the pound and just needed a quiet place to land. Mikas forever home would be best suited with 1 child or if multiple then older children (too much excitement makes her anxious) polite dogs close to her size, unfortunately, cats are unknown as she doesn't currently live with any.
