Adoptable: Skyler

Age: 2 years old

Gender: Female

Breed: Husky mix

Weight: 41 lbs

Personality: Active gal! Loves her people and very sweet! Selective with dogs and shows resource guarding till she gets comfortable.

Education: Good with bathroom and leash training. She likes open crates as her safe space.

Favorite Activities: Bitey face wresting with the resident dog, laying with her face out the open door while watching the family, eating grass and chasing nightime bugs!

Looking for: An amazing home where she will have the life of a true princess! She'd do well with a friendly dog. She has sensitive needs due to her legs

Special needs: Her legs are a congenital birth defect. Skyler is strongly ambulatory despite these deformities and is only mildly uncomfortable with range of motion in the right shoulder.

The Sky is the limit for this sweetie! 


Hello, there! My name is Skyler. I’m a fun-loving girl with a sunny pawsonality. I’m 2 years old, 41 pounds, and a husky mix. I was recently rescued from what the media called the “Chandler 55” hoarding and abuse case in Arizona. Despite my stormy past, I’m hopeful for clear skies in my future! 

I’m already spayed and I’m an active girlie. I was born with a congenital birth defect that impacts my legs. I’m still a strong pup, even with these deformities, and only have some mild discomfort with the range of motion in my right shoulder. I was fitted and am awaiting custom soft forelimb orthotic-type supports to keep me from developing soft tissue damage on the contact regions of my forelimbs. While I wait for my new shoes to arrive, I prefer being on grass, turf, or soft surfaces like yoga mats so that I don’t get carpet burn. Don’t be fooled… I still move quickly! I potentially have a luxating patella in my back, but surgical intervention is not recommended at this time.

I’m ready for a furever home who will love me for me! I currently live with another pooch and we love to ruff house and wrestle. Due to my less-than-stellar past, I can be selective with other dogs and prefer a slow introduction. I currently have some resource guarding and would be best with older kids who can respect my space during this adjustment period. I initially show signs of resource guarding but settle down once I know who my people are. I love laying my head out the door and watching my humans. I’m known to nibble at the grass and chase after bugs in the yard. Being differently abled does not stop me from doing all things dog! I’m finally learning what a true home should be like which is helping my sweet, silly side shine. 

I’m a well-behaved girl who does her business outside. I use my crate (left open) as my safe space. I can be left alone without being crated, no problemo. I show off my husky howl when I’m put in a room for bedtime. I’d love to be with a human that’s okay with me catching some Zzz’s with them! I’m eager to learn and continue learning how to be the very best girl in a home with you. 

Even though the odds were stacked against me in more ways than one, I’m still the most amazing gal who deserves all the love. I’d thrive in a calm household with a compatible dog who can be my buddy. I also seem just as content lounging and being near my people! I have attempted to lunge off furniture for fun (it looks like parkour!) so a room or gated area would be best. Despite the rain clouds that filled my past, I see nothing but sunshine if we do life together! Check me out on my foster’s insta @shann_and_muddypup
