From the Foster:

Whether you’re an experienced husky owner, or someone interested in joining the husky club, let me start off by saying huskies are not for everyone. However, I think it’s safe to say that we can all appreciate huskies from afar, I mean come on, just look at beautiful Miss Daisy.

Before we get too far along, I want to mention a few things that could be deal breakers for some of you. First of all, Daisy cannot be in a shared walls environment due to her vocal nature and desire to sing the songs of her ancestors. Second, Daisy needs an adopter who is willing to work with her on her leash reactivity and resource guarding. Although experience with these two things would be a huge plus, it’s certainly not a necessity if you’re dedicated to learning about these behaviors and can be diligent about working with her. Third and most important thing is that Daisy has a ton of energy, energy that will not be satisfied by a couple of walks a day and a play session or two. Daisy needs A LOT of mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis, otherwise in true bored dog fashion, she will become destructive. Now I know some of you may be thinking, “oh she sounds like the perfect dog for a dog park or doggy daycare! What better way to get her energy out than by playing with dogs all day?” I’m usually not in the business of crushing dreams, but in this instance, it’s important to know that Daisy can be dog selective and likely won’t thrive in an environment with a lot of dogs, especially ones she doesn’t know.

If you’ve made it this far and think Daisy could be a good fit for you, then keep reading. I think if you asked dog owners what they love most about their dog, many would say their personality, which just so happens to be my favorite thing about Daisy. She is a quirky gal who is very loving when she wants to be. She is incredibly smart and loves to use that intelligence to outsmart me as often as possible. She is stubborn and somehow never hears me when I ask her to stop hunting for mice and bunnies in the yard. Her zest for life is contagious, and even made this night owl want to wake up early in the morning so we can get a long walk in before work. She is a hoot and a half and deserves an adopter who will love her for all her quirks.  If you want a friend in your life to do things with, and experience things with - I think Daisy would be a huge light in your life.   She'd likely thrive in a home that wants  to try fun things with their dogs like agility or barn hunt or a sport - her knack for learning and her intelligence is second to none.   If you're an outdoorsy person and want a hiking buddy or a camping companion or a marathon coach / support runner, I'm not sure you'd find a better match than her.  

Since people always want to know about this stuff, I have to mention that yes, Daisy is house-trained and crate-trained. She walks pretty well on a leash, but since everything is still new and exciting, she kind of bounces around like a pinball.
