The Morning Wolfpack's 12 Strays of Christmas - Day 4 - Ali Larter

December 12, 2017

AGE/GENDER: Baby (born 5/25/2017), Female 
BREED: Husky Mix 
TEMPERAMENT: Playful, high energy, inquisitive
WEIGHT: 35 lbs and growing 

HOUSE TRAINING: Not yet! She's understanding the concept of going outside, but not asking to go out or holding it until she can go out. However, if you take her outside and be consistent on a schedule, she will learn.
CRATE TRAINING: She is learning to be crated and is a bit of an escape artist. She is not a fan of being crated during the day, but will sleep in a crate (with much protest initially).
OTHER DOGS: Good! She will need continued socialization, like all puppies! She loves to play with other dogs and will require another dog in the home (as huskies are pack animals and due to her blindness she thrives with another dog who can be her mentor and "eyes".)
CATS: Good! She is fostered with cats and is learning not to bark at them.
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older 

HEALTH: Ali Larter is BLIND! She had bilateral enucleation, meaning both eyes were removed. In addition she does have a heart murmur and cardiac echo did reveal an irregular rhythm and tricuspid valve dysplasia. She will need another cardiac evaluation with echocardiogram when she is a year old to monitor progression of cardiac disease (may need continued monitoring beyond).

Prior to adoption, puppies will be altered, microchipped, flea treated, and dewormed. Puppies are given vaccination boosters in our care; however, adoptive families will be responsible for the remaining vaccinations that puppies need. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with 30 days of free pet insurance provided by Shelter Care. 

HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find her a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do! 

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Ali is a puppy so she's playful and has a lot of puppy energy on top of the husky energy! Keeping her busy is key. A bored husky puppy is a destructive husky puppy. She is super cute and fun, but a lot of work. Her forever family should be committed to lots of training - obedience, housetraining, and socialization. This will ensure that Ali grows into a confident, well behaved adult! Puppies' personalities are dependent on their environment, and the structure and training they are given, in addition to socialization. Their personalities continue to grow and be shaped by their new adoptive families. Puppy daycare and socialization classes or puppy kindergarten are highly recommended for their personal development. She will more than reward you for all your hard work with lots of love, loyalty, and laughs. All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs. 

Ali Larter is BLIND, and as such would need another dog in the home as it helps make her feel much more secure and confident. She learns things quickly, like stairs etc. We would highly recommend she be adopted with her best buddy Jane Chatwin.

Ali is a very sweet girl and gorgeous to boot. She will definitely require more socialization with people and places, as she is blind and will need to learn to navigate the world. She is an adventurous little pup and loves hiking and walking with the other dog members of her foster family. And playing almost constantly all day long with her BFF Jane Chatwin. While she loves to run and will try to hike and run as much as she can, once she is tired out, she is good for quick nap. She will power nap shortly before she is up and ready to continue to play. She loves other dogs, especially her size, so that she can run and play with them outside. She loves to be outdoors and is a high energy pup, so she needs an active family and a very tolerant dog companion as she does not always know when to stop (however, she is learning). She's a super sweet playful girl looking for the right family. 

Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found.

Please email [email protected] and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet! For more information, please visit Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
