Love huskies? These 15 amazing dogs are ready to find their forever homes

The San Luis Obispo County Animal Services shelter has 15 amazing husky dogs ready to find their forever homes.

Huskies as a breed are known to be gentle, friendly, outgoing, smart and affectionate.

In recent years, shelters have seen an influx of huskies, most likely due to their large litter size, athletic nature and popularity as a dog breed.

Huskies are incredible dogs.

However, as with any breed, it is important that they find owners right for them.

Huskies are very social dogs that love to spend time with their people and form very strong bonds with their owners. They also need regular exercise.

Not a runner? That’s ok! Playing ball, going to the dog park, hiking or simply going for a stroll around the neighborhood are all great ways to keep huskies happy and healthy.

The Animal Services shelter has a variety of huskies ranging in age, size and temperaments.

It’s not a question of “Is there a great husky waiting for me at the shelter?” but rather “Which one should I choose?”

Whether you’re looking for an adventure buddy or cuddle companion, there is a husky at the shelter ready to fill your days with laughter and love.

Visit the adoptable animals page of our website to see great huskies ready for a life beyond the shelter, and call the front desk for more information on a specific dog.

Adoption fees for all available huskies are “name your price” through Sept. 25.
