-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH PIXIE! THIS IS A COURTESY POST; PLEASE CONTACT BETSY AT 503-621-3675 FOR MORE DETAILS.-

This is Tuck, a 12 year old Siberian Husky! He’s a sweet boy and we would like to find him an appropriate home! Tuck is friendly and very food motivated.  He is not reactive to dogs, cats or any farm animals.  He’s interested, enjoys his walks on the farm, and is not reactive or alarmed by other animals.  He moves around well but is taking Rimadyl for his joints.  One of the side effects of his earlier neglect was a raging ear infection and terrible skin problems.  He now has a beautiful coat and his skin is looking great.  His ears are under control too.  Whew!  He’s not crazy about having his nails clipped but tolerates it well. We usually put a soft muzzle on him during nail clips.  He is a typical Husky in that he doesn’t really bark but he does talk when he wants something—kind of a howly sound.  But he’s really not noisy.  He just lets you know if you are late with his food!  In general he’s very quiet.  He would do well in a home where someone could take him out for regular potty breaks.  He never soils his bed but he’s a Senior and needs consistent potty time or easy access to a place to potty.  He’s beautiful, perky and enjoys everything and everyone.  But please no very small children or  very active dogs in a home for Tuck.  He would be fine with another mellow dog or cats.  He’s a Senior with typical aches and pains of an older individual and children tugging on him or dogs pouncing on him would be a difficult situation for him. Prospective families or individuals can contact Betsy at The Charlton Kennels, 503-621-3675.
