Pet of the Week: Lowa

Get a load of those gorgeous eyes! This is Lowa, our Pet of the Week!

This young Siberian Husky was brought in to the Pet Adoption Center by a good Samaritan in early February. Lowa also had a couple of siblings that arrived with him.

At just under sixty pounds, Lowa is considered a medium breed dog. He and his siblings had been living outside for some time and didn’t get much interaction with other people, so he still needs some help getting comfortable with handling and meeting new humans.

Lowa has been learning a lot, and it will be important for his adopters to be consistent with him and socialize him so he can be the best boy he can be. Everything is brand new, so Lowa will need some TLC while he learns. Due to spending so much time outside, Lowa is not potty trained or crate trained yet. Learning those skills will help greatly on his road to success!

Though he likes to take things slow at first, Lowa has a “Rambunctious Red” personality. He may get nervous in new situations, so he would do best with a family that understands he might take some time to warm up. Once he gets to know you, Lowa will be a very devoted and playful friend! Because of his shy nature, Lowa would do best in a calm, quiet home without children.

Caregivers at the Pet Adoption Center have noticed that Lowa seems to do well with other dogs. However, when meeting dogs in his new home, he would do best with a slow introduction.

Lowa is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. His adoption comes with many benefits, including 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. Since Lowa is our Pet of the Week, his adoption fee has been reduced, though a pet license fee may still apply. Visit kingcounty.gov/LicenseMyPet to learn about all the benefits that come with a pet license.

Lowa has many other friends also waiting for their forever homes. See their profiles at kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet or meet them in person at the Pet Adoption Center, 21615 64th Ave. S. in Kent. Adoption hours are noon to 5 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 4 p.m. weekends. If you have questions, contact RASKC at 206-296-7387 (PETS) or email pets@kingcounty.gov.
