Hi, I'm Fluke, a 7 year old Husky. I'm looking for new owners who have previous experience owning huskies, who will understand my quirks and the requirements of my breed.
Although I am very beautiful, I am also a very complex boy who needs to be given a lot of time and patience. It's important to me that I am able to take things at my own pace, if rushed I can become overwhelmed and lose my confidence which means taking steps backwards in the progress I have been making.
Any potential new owners will need to be committed to doing a large amount of visits at the centre and understand that the adoption process will be lengthy and involve numerous home visits once a bond has been formed with me through our visits here. This process is so that I am able to establish a strong relationship with my adopters as I am very uncomfortable being handled and touched unless I have a good bond with someone first and my friends here will want to make sure I am completely comfortable and happy.
My favourite thing in life is going for walks, and I'll go for miles, so new owners with an active lifestyle is a must! I'm also extremely intelligent and love to learn new tricks and keep my brain busy!
Unfortunately I'm not fond of other dogs. My friends here have taught me how to wear a muzzle, this is something which I will need to wear when out on my walks to ensure my safety, the safety of other dogs and give other dog owners the heads up that I'm not dog friendly. I have been working on my social skills and passing dogs nicely when on my walks and this is something my new owners will need to continue once I am rehomed.
I'd love a home in a rural location where I can go for walks in quieter areas and a new home with a large secure garden is essential so I have somewhere I can safely run and play with my toys as I will need to be kept on a lead or long line at all times when out in public.
I will need an adult only home with minimal visitors and no visiting children.
Due to the large amount of visits to the centre and prospective home visits any potential owner will be required to do as part of the adoption process, plus follow up training and support once rehomed, we are unable to rehome Fluke out of Cornwall.
