Arrival Story: Misty looks like a wolf with Siberian bi-eyes - one blue and one brown - and a happy smile. She weighs about 75 lbs. on a big frame so we think she is mixed with Malamute or German Shepherd. She is estimated to be ten years old.
When Misty first came into rescue she didnâ€™t know what to do with a dog bed, but once she figured it out she really took to it. Like many senior Sibes, Misty is easy to care for because she is so calm and laid back. She likes her routine to be quiet and orderly, but she also loves her walks and is easy to walk on lead with no pulling.
Misty is a sweet girl. She wonâ€™t jump on you or the furniture, and she wonâ€™t climb into your lap, but if people are sitting down, Misty will make sure she is at your feet to keep you company. She is house trained and trusted to be out of her crate when home alone during the workday. Misty also knows some basic commands like sit and give paw. She also takes treats very politely and loves having a bone to chew on. Misty is tolerant of children but her laid back personality would probably be best suited for a home without young kids. Misty is particular about which other dogs she will get along with. Despite being a senior, her favorite other dogs to live with were a couple of high energy, 1-year old male Siberians who she loves to play and run with. Misty would probably be happiest as an only dog, however, if she decides she likes another dog she could be part of a two dog household. Like many Sibes she is not safe with cats.
Misty has a mild seizure disorder which is being controlled with liquid potassium bromide, an inexpensive medication. (She will take anything you offer if itâ€™s wrapped in cream cheese.) Otherwise, Misty is generally in good health.
