What a stunning girl Artemis is! An 11 year old husky, she weighs approximately 50 pounds.
Artemis is described by her person as “an independent minded, highly intelligent, playful and energetic girl who knows lots of tricks and loves to be with people. She is a steady presence to keep you company throughout the day.”

While Artemis enjoys meeting and playing with other dogs at the dog park or on walks, she does NOT enjoy them being in her house! Artemis strongly dislikes cats. She needs to be the only pet in her new home, just as she has always been all of her life. Artemis is nervous around small children and because she can get excited and possibly knock a young child over, children in her new home should be at least 12 years old.

Artemis would thrive in a home with someone who is willing to work with her on learning that staying home alone is OK. Her person works from home and she is not happy when he leaves. Artemis barks when someone comes to the door and she will bark and cry when left alone which means she needs a home where that will not cause an issue with the neighbors. She is good to wait quite a bit before needing a potty break. We are told she is crate trained.

When adopting a husky, one should expect to provide daily exercise. Artemis needs long daily walks or an hour in a securely fenced location to run free. It sounds as though Artemis could make a great exercise buddy, however, one will have to work on her leash skills as she does pull. She should not be allowed to be off leash, especially as a newly adopted dog, as she has been known to dart off after a smell she’s found or another dog.

Atermis enjoys laying outside in the sun when it’s a nice day but mostly she spends her time indoors, finding a spot where she can watch her person. While she’s not a lap dog or a cuddler; she is a loyal and loving companion.

In need of an adoptive home very soon, Artemis is located in Vancouver, WA. For contact information please email: referrals@olddoghaven.org 

This is not an ODH dog: we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
