Hathor (Adoption Pending)

Hathor

BREED: Husky/Rottweiler mix
GENDER: Female (spayed)
APPROX. AGE: 2.5 years old
SIZE & WEIGHT: 68lbs
HISTORY: Rescue from a First Nations Reservation in Northern Alberta.
TEMPERAMENT: Loving, affectionate, and loves to interact with people of all ages. She is generally calm and very quiet and only barks when she encounters strange dogs or animals. She does have a very big ferocious sounding bark (which could alarm people who don’t know her gentle nature). She is very sensitive and cowers around people who yell. She has grown up with two other dogs and has had some good socialization experiences with other dogs, but a few unfortunate interactions she had with strange dogs has left her very anxious around strange dogs and will act aggressively with strange dogs if she is surprised by them or if the other dog does not respect her space or acts aggressively toward her.
PERSONALITY: Calm, athletic, affectionate, loves to interact with people. She is super attentive to her human family members and very sensitive to their moods and behaviour. She is hyper-vigilant in strange situations (but responds well to reassurance, encouragement, and rewards) and scared of strange dogs and people who yell loudly. She is super intelligent and easily trained, she only needs to be told once to drop something or “no” and she never will touch that object again. She is loyal and devoted. While she is used to be run free in large space (and has a sprinting radius of about 1 km) she always returns to her human.
BEST MATCH: A home where she has lots of opportunities to interact with her human family. She is super fit and strong (but extremely gently with people, including small children) and is used to getting a lot of exercise. Because of her fear of strange dogs, her ideal home would be one where she is the only dog or lives with a very calm, submissive dog, and has an owner that will be sensitive and understanding of her gentle nature and will provide her with lots of comfort and and reassurance in situations where she is scared.
FAVOURITE THINGS: People, affection. A nice big soft doggie bed. Chasing deer and squirrels. Long hikes and runs. Swimming. Cuddling with her humans. Bones (the bigger, the better). For fun, she loves to rip apart her toys that have dog treats hidden inside. She loves to runs and wrestle with her human friends (who don’t mind her strength). She loves the snow and, if she is given property opportunity to adjust to the cold, has been very happy playing outside in -32 C (though, she has never spent more than an hour in such extreme temperatures).
