Arctic

Hi! I’m Arctic and I’m a quiet husky.

I know, it sounds unbelievable, we’re pretty rare to come by, but it’s TRUE! The loudest sound my foster mom has heard from me, is when I yawned. Because I’ve done so much work in my past, I’m ready to relax. So, I’ve been spending all my time on this cozy doggie bed, I’ve never felt anything so soft, myyy goodness!

So far, I’m soaking up this relaxing business, it’s great. I’m so calm in the house, that on my second day with my foster mama she trusted me outside the crate when she went to work, and guess what, I just stayed on this bed all day long. I’m sure she thought I’d be a bit of a scoundrel, but I proved her wrong.

The only time I really leave this bed is to go for some walkies! I like walks, especially now that the new grass is growing in. Mmmm boy do I love to graze my nose through the grass, but I still keep a good pace with my foster mom and foster brother. My walking skills are getting pretty good with my training tool – I just need a reminder, or two, that I’m no longer working and I can slow down and smell the grass as much as I like.

I will say though, I’m not a fan of those big metal things on wheels (cars), nor am I a fan of those big bins that smell weird (garbage bins on garbage day) so I try to steer clear of those.

But I have encountered many other things and have been fine – cyclists, some loud, older kids (roughly age 10-13), and even a cat popping out of the bushes! But I ignored it. Also, some crazy dogs ran up to me ON TWO DIFFERENT OCCASIONS, and I just looked at them – they were silly.

Um…. what else have I seen? Oh yes, squirrels and rabbits ! I think I might like to chase those !

Since I’m in a new place, I’m still a bit shy. Remember I said I like to stay on my bed? That’s because it’s my safe space but I’m sure that’ll change when I’m more comfortable. So right now I’m not too much of a snuggle bug.

I don’t know what else to add my dear(s), other than I’m “pretty chill”, as I’ve heard my foster mom refer to me. So if you think I’ll fit in your home and you’re ready to love me, great! Let’s meet to see how it goes and I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂
