Dog Profile


Mishka

Ref: 086/17

5 years 8 months

Bitch · Husky X Collie · Tri Colour


Behaviour

Description

There is no doubt about it, Mishka is absolutely beautiful. It does however take her a while to feel comfortable around strangers. She has come from a home with two adults but proved very uncomfortable around children. Mishka is reactive towards dogs and has never shared her space with other pets. This bonnie girl cannot be trusted near sheep or livestock as she does have a predatory streak. Mishka is house trained and tends to only toilet on grass. She enjoys going in the car and once she has gained your trust, she has a very affectionate side.

History

Mishka's owner have had to make the very difficult decision to rehome her. She has proven very predatory toward sheep and after trying their hardest to help her with her behavioural issues, they feel they can no longer give her the attention she requires.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for an owner who has experience with husky or working stock collies and who is able to commit to her training and socialising. Mishka needs a home without children and where she won't come into contact with sheep. Ideally, someone who can give Mishka their full one to one attention and understands that she can be reactive when out on walks. She is in search of an owner who will use reward based training with her.

Homefinder Questionnaire
