Pet of the Week: Hondoo
Hondoo is intelligent and driven by the need for speed! Huskies were bred to run while pulling something heavy for miles in polar conditions, so giving them enough exercise is no easy feat. The average dog may be happy with several 30-minute walks daily, but that won’t cut it for this boy. Hondoo craves adventure and if you don’t give him what he needs, he’ll go look for it on his own.
A husky can be an escape artist who could give Houdini a run for his money. They can jump over, dig under or swim around any obstacle between them and a good time. For that reason, having a yard isn’t what is important for a dog like this. Hondoo is a marathon pup who is looking for an athletic human who has the same compulsion to wake up and GO every single day. If you love to run, bike, rollerblade, skateboard or hike, and you are looking for a dog with endurance and energy, then Hondoo may be your boy.
This handsome guy will do the best at an adult-only household, and a trainer will talk with you before you adopt to discuss how to best set him up for success. If Hondoo sounds like the boy for you, set up an appointment with the San Diego Campus at sdhumane.org/adopt.
His adoption includes spay/neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, an incentive for pet insurance from MetLife and a license for residence in the city limits of Carlsbad, Del Mar, El Cajon, Encinitas, Escondido, Imperial Beach, Oceanside, Poway, San Diego, San Marcos, Santee, Solana Beach or Vista.
Hondoo is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s San Diego Campus at 5500 Gaines St. To learn more about making him part of your family, call (619) 299-7012.
