Most people would agree that Huskies are beautiful animals, however, these intelligent creatures are more than just a pretty face. Adding a Husky to your family is a lifetime commitment and responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Huskies require an enormous amount of attention. From their never-ending energy to daily grooming, these majestic creatures can keep a whole family busy (and in shape) with their care.
Lobo, who was transferred to the Humane Society of Ventura County from Ventura County Animal Services on November 27th, is just one of many Huskies who find themselves in shelters, most likely just by following their instincts. While Huskies are highly adaptable and very family oriented it is near impossible for them to resist their instinct to wander, leading many Huskies to end up in shelters as strays miles from home.
While we have no background on Lobo he has been a very friendly boy with us at the shelter. Lobo is a naturally playful, curious, and trusting dog. We estimate him to be around five years old and while eager to please he will need a structured home and experienced handler. Lobo will require a long walk every day, and plenty of time and space to explore at home. It is crucial that Lobo's home has a large yard where he can be securely and safely enclosed. The enclosure will need to be regularly checked for possible escape routes. While a Husky is a lot of work what you get in return is a wonderful new family member, companion, and friend. If you are interested in meeting Lobo please stop by the shelter in Ojai and ask a staff member to introduce you!
