Animal Rescue Spotlight – Meet Sardis

Sardis came to us as a stray, but we later found out he was abandoned by his owner. Like most huskies, he is full of personality and loves to “talk”. We’ve not had any issues with him trying to escape. Sardis is dog selective, so he is looking for a unique home setting that would work for him. He is about 2 yrs old, 55lbs, neutered and heartworm positive but will be treated for his heartworms. Sardis walks well on a leash but could use some work. He loves his daily play time, so a big fenced-in yard would be amazing for him.

What Sardis Has to Say

Hey, Sardis! I’ve never heard your name before, so I looked up what it means: Prince of Joy. What do you think about that? Are you a prince of joy?

“Yes! I could be that! I didn’t know my name meant Prince of Joy, but I am full of joy! I love to run and play and wrestle and fetch–although I will admit that I don’t always bring the ball back. But that’s because I also love to chew! Sometimes I’d rather flop down and chew on the ball, especially when I’ve already been running and playing a while.”

Whitney said that you’re “dog selective.” What does that mean to you? (I told him what I think it means just to give him some context.)

“I like some dogs but not others. It’s not about their size–it’s more about the way they act. I will put up with some small annoying dogs, but others need to be put in their place. I wouldn’t hurt them though. I’d just pin them down and growl to make a point. If they rolled over and accepted that they needed to be chastised, I’d leave it alone. I like some big dogs but not others. I will play with dogs who are respectful and don’t try to be a bully. I guess what it comes down to is that I like to be top dog and keep everyone in their proper place. That’s what Alpha dogs do. It’s what keeps the pack safe. I would want to be the Alpha in my pack.”

What do you think about cats?

“I’d chase a cat.”

What if it didn’t run?

“Then I probably wouldn’t chase it.”

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself?

“I’m a good boy, but I have a lot of energy, so I need to be given lots of exercise and some jobs to do. I’d like to be with a family that would teach me tricks and take me for leash walks—or runs, because I love to run. I would be a good babysitter for the kids in my family.”

Sardis is a good dog looking for a loving home where he can be active and help his family. Are you his people?
