Mia

A Female Husky-x presently Adopted

Mia is my name and I am thankful to my family for bringing me to a safe place; it does take backbone to admit a mistake.  Animatch and all rescues recognize that people now and then make a “faux pas” when adopting a puppy.  Just about everyone knows that they need to be prepared to deal with crazy and relentless puppy behavior.  Except, there is just something about that puppy smell and cuteness (like I once had) that makes people disregard common sense.  Despite the fact that puppies are continuously jumping on you and chewing everything in sight, people simply put up with that behaviour from a puppy!  But way fewer people, it seems, can tolerate the most challenging period in a dog’s life – ADOLESCENCE!  Did you know that most dogs are given up between six months and two years old -- adolescence does present some challenging moments!  The days when your puppy spent more hours asleep than awake are gone!  Now, we need exercise, training, socialization, mental stimulation.  Spending 8 hours in a crate, like I did, is not okay.  If you are work all day, you must realize that going out in the yard for 10 minutes before you head off to work is not enough for me.  I need a good 30-40-minute walk before you go to work; if you can’t give me that, then an adolescent dog is not for you.  Dog walkers cost money but it is still cheaper than buying a new couch and healthier than leaving me crated all day.  If that is not in your plans, then an adolescent dog is not for you.  Relying on neighbours, friends, and family is not a long-term solution for exercising your dog.  In order for me to be tired in the evening, another long walk and playtime is a must.  If you don’t have it in you after a day at the office, then an adolescent dog is not for you.  I’m an amazing dog and I don’t ever want to feel this sense of abandonment again, so next time I want it to be right.  I get along with other dogs and I would be a good companion for sturdy, dog-savvy children.  Obedience classes would definitely help me to be the dog of your dreams.  If you would like to adopt me, please fill out the Adoption Form.
