** ADOPTED 2/19/2011 **
Nikita was surrendered because her family could no longer care for her due to health reasons. Her owner had always dreamed of owning a husky, and it seemed like the perfect gift. The owner's family got her an adorable husky puppy named Nikita. Nikita’s owner knew right away that the timing wasn’t right, she realized that a husky probably would have been better suited for her 20 or 30 years ago. A young husky requires energy and exercise, and physically her owner couldn’t give her what she needed. Nikita's owner turned to Taysia Blue for help. It truly broke her owner’s heart to say ‘good-bye’, but she trusted us to find a wonderful family for her, to do the right thing by her.
Nikita is a sweet and gentle dog who enjoys being outside but also loves to cuddle with her foster mom. Don’t let Nikita’s placid disposition fool you, this girl can climb over chain link fences and squeeze through spaces that appear too small for her. She’s an escape artist extraordinaire so a good secure fence is a must. She has lived with small dogs, but has a history of chasing (and catching) cats so a home without cats is important.
Nikita is learning to like her crate and spends the day in it when her foster mom is at work. She came to us needing to be house trained and she is learning very quickly. She knows how to sit and stay and shake. She is learning down and stay.
