From the Foster: Zella is such a sweet little thing at a whopping 41lbs. She should be a little more like 45 so her foster home is working on putting a little more weight on her. She is going to be a perfect size husky! Zella is as sweet as they come. Loves people and dogs. She does play husky play so will have to be watched with dogs that don't know how to do that. She has been pretty good at not jumping on people. She knows No and will respond when told not to. She just gets a little excited when you knows there are new faces to lick! She takes treats very nicely and doesn't appear to have any food aggression. However, she probably was an only dog so sometimes she will drop food/treats and they will get eaten by someone else so always have to watch that she eats them. She will curl up with her humans and snuggle when she is tired. Currently she is sleeping in a crate at night and during the day when no one is home. She has showed some interest in chewing things that aren't hers if left out. However she also knows where the toy box is and will empty that on the floor to make sure she gets the right one. Is good at sharing toys too. Zella is a really nice dog and will make a great family dog!
