About Amelia

Sex: Female

Color: Gray & White

Eye Color: Bi-eyes, one brown and one blue

Birthday: July 1, 2016

Weight: 55lbs (working on getting her down to 50lbs)

Large Dog Friendly: Yes

Small Dog Friendly: Yes

Cat Friendly: Yes.

Crate Trained: Yes. The door is always open so she can go in whenever she wants/needs to. She eats in the crate but otherwise hasn't really used it much.

Housebroken: Yes. Has accidents a few times when she's scared or nervous.

Energy Level: Low to Medium

Reaction to New People: Shy and nervous

Kid Friendly: She startles easily with sudden movements or sounds so older kids/teens or no kids would be best.

Training: She knows a few basic commands but she won't do them until she's comfortable with you. She is very well behaved.

Grooming Needs: Typical Husky grooming needs. Will tolerate the brush in small doses.

Fence: We have a 4.5 foot fence. Amelia is petite so no concerns with a bit lower fence. Not necessary though. She runs in little spurts but much prefers to go on walks!

Solo or Siblings: I'd say solo if the family is home a lot. Otherwise I'd say an older, more mellow dog sibling.

From the foster: Mila is so sweet! She is pretty calm for a Siberian Husky. She loves to go on walks and will easily do 2 miles a few times a day. She loves to stop and sniff everything and try new areas. Her short little legs can really move pretty quickly! She and our 3 year old husky Braxie walk well together. She likes to run in the backyard but also likes to lounge on the outdoor sofa just as much. Braxie tries to wrestle and rough play like huskies do but she doesn't like it. She'll chase him a little bit but bares her teeth at him if it's too much (she thinks she's tough but it's actually pretty adorable and makes us laugh).

Mila loves food and treats and spins in circles at meal time. She is slow to warm up and startles easily so using healthy treats really helped us get her comfortable. She is very interested when we are working in the kitchen and she loves getting things like chicken, sweet potatoes and veggies/fruit. She takes treats very gently. Mila is potty trained but has had accidents. As she's gotten more comfortable with us it has gotten better. She doesn't tell us se has to go out so we take her out frequently. She doesn't get up during the night to go out. Mila sleeps on the living room floor or on the couch (she has her spot already). She could sleep on our bed but hasn't gotten that far yet. Mila is a quiet girl. She doesn't howl or bark. She does great in the car, laying down or watching out the window.
