Baby Male Siberian Husky / Mixed
This pet is no longer available for adoption.
Cole is a 3 month old husky puppy whose strength and will to live has amazed us all. Sunday, July 29th, Cole was rushed to the hospital with apparent respiratory distress. Two days later, he received emergency surgery for a hiatel hernia, which had created in Cole a condition called megaesophagus. Because Cole has megaesophagus and, most likely, a weakened sphincter, he will regurgitate on a somewhat regular basis (maybe once a day) and will need to be closely monitored for aspiration / pnemonia. Cole will need to be fed in an upright position and kept in this position for about a half hour after eating to allow food to go through his esophagus into his stomach. He will also need to eat more often; he currently must be fed every 4-5 hours. We don't know what Cole's lifespan will be, but we do know that he is an extremely happy and energetic puppy, with an amazing spirit and will to live.
Cole began his life with his 8 sisters and brothers and wonderful mommy "Hope" on a farm in Tennessee. Hope had been rescued from being euthanized at a local shelter, and had her nine babies shortly thereafter. All ten of them were brought to their foster home in New Jersey on June 30th. The puppies were tiny and flea infested. Since then, Cole, his siblings and Hope have thrived in their foster home. They are happy, healthy dogs who love to play, wrestle and be with one another. Theirs is a story of triumph against all odds.
Please note, that at this time, Husky House does not adopt out of the immediate NJ area.
*The minimum age for adopters is 25 yrs. old and you must reside within a one hour drive from either NYC or from Bridgewater NJ. We DO NOT do long distance adoptions because we do homevisits prior to the pup going to its new home.
*We do not adopt out Siberian puppies (under 1 year of age) unless you have prior Siberian experience.
*We DO NOT place in homes that rely on the invisible/electric fence as the sole means of containment. If your yard is fenced in - your fence must be at least 5 feet tall.
