Husky needs a home

Hi!
I have a 5 month old Husky mixed with collie which I can't keep. My husband bought him (Toby) for the family and we are now seperated. I have 2 kids one of which is very allergic to Toby and has been miserable ever since. I can't handle it all right now. Toby is gentle and great with children. He's not fully house trained (I just don't have the time). Since my husband is gone the dog is alone ALL DAY from 7am to 6pm. It's not fair to poor Toby to be cooped up for so long!!!
Anyone interested?? please let me know, I live in Montreal and although it will break my heart to let him go it will also be a relief.

He is not neutered yet. I got him at the SPCA and the neutering in included in the price. So whoever takes him will get my papers so that he or she can get him neutered for free. He still has to go for vaccines real soon, but that will cost about $35.00.

You should get him neutered before you adopt him out, just to be sure he won't end up in a mill someplace.

Glad to help! Good luck finding him a new home. Possibly mention your situation where you work. Maybe you have a co-worker who would love him as much as you do. It's worth a whirl.

Yes, definitely get him neutered. I'll put him on my Petfinder site, if you want to send me a picture and description of him.

I'm very happy to say that one of my co-workers has adopted Toby! She just e-mailed me a picture of him and he looks happy!! It brought tears to my eyes to see him but made me really happy to know he is being well taken care of. My co-worker will continue to send me pictures so that I could see him grow up!
