Pet of the Week: Ladybug the Dog

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Ladybugs are no longer just for summer.
Let's go meet News 13's Pet of the Week.

Kimberly Imbert; Animal Tender>>"Hi my name is Kimberly and this week's Pet of the Week is Ladybug. Ladybug is a 2-year-old Alaskan Husky and Pointer mix. She originally came to the shelter last spring because her owner wasn't able to take care of her and she had been an outdoor dog at that time. Ladybug was adopted for nearly a year and her owner tried to transition her into a house dog but wasn't having success with her in her family environment. So she is back at the shelter looking for a loving home. Ladybug could use some more assistance learning how to be and indoor dog. It is a huge lifestyle change for dogs to adjust to, sometimes they need some help. Ladybug is a little bit timid of men but she enjoys meeting other dogs. So hopefully in her new home she can live with a confident dog that will get along with her and not be overly playful because she can find that a bit overwhelming, but one that will just show her that people are really fun and that it is really nice to be inside and you don't have to be nervous but you can relax and chew on a bone and lay on the couch. She will probably try to escape and needs to always be kept on a leash and away from the door so she doesn't skirt outside. She is pretty well housebroken bur needs a little more help getting that down perfectly, but that is just part of her transitioning into an inside dog. She also has other dog, cat, and small animal friends looking for homes at the shelter."
