ICICLE is residing with Genny so for more info please contact her directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Icicle is a 5 ½ year old male Mal/Husky mix. He is black, white and grey in coat color and has one blue and one brown eye. Icy currently weighs in at 74 pounds. Icicle, who is recovering from dual TPLO surgery is currently residing with his foster family who became his legal owner when the rescue they were fostering him for refused to get him the follow up medical attention he needed. The foster/owner family cannot keep him because they have other dogs and Icicle wants to be an only dog.
Genny shares: “Icicle is loving and sweet, handsome and smart, but he’s an only child kind of pup. We don’t know much about his past other than he was abused by his “owner”. He’s very shy in the beginning when he first sees people, but with women he warms up really quickly. With my husband, it took him a little bit to trust him but never once was Icy aggressive or anything--he just retreats or hides, poor guy.”
Icy likes car rides and loves his leash walks. He may pull a bit in the beginning because he is so excited to go but quickly settles. Icicle knows his basic commands, is house and crate trained. He is gentle accepting treats and loves to play with toys, his favorite being balls and his plush bunny. Typical to his breed, he has a strong prey drive so no kitties or other small fuzzy creatures in the home please.
“Icicle has some arthritis in his hind legs. We started PT and do exercises with him. He takes CBD and has been taking carprofen the last couple weeks. We give him Cosequin extra strength, and we are introducing a new diet to help maintain a healthy weight and help with his joints. Icy tolerates being touched and is always complimented at the vet for being a really good boy. He talks a bit, not loud, just funny like he’s complaining about it lol. He does what we call ‘dry land swimming’ for attention where he lays on his back or side and move his legs and paws like he’s swimming. He will rub on you like a big kitty and then flop on the floor for belly rubs! He plays like a little puppy and it’s just the cutest thing to watch. He’s very sweet and smart, and loves snuggles, a comfy bed and rubs.”
