He is 8 years and 5 months old.
“Whoever finds a friend as loyal as the Siberian Husky, has found a treasure.”
Karter was my beautiful dream dog, a purebred Siberian husky. I fell in love with their goofy faces and how crazy they are. Not only are they absolutely gorgeous, but they have so much personality and so many quirks. Although I just couldn’t appreciate them fully until I brought home my real life husky.
He ran away when he got out during a rainstorm. It was so heartbreaking and I cried every day for a month after it first happened. He’s usually so scared of being alone, that when all the dogs got out I was more focused on finding my fiance’s deaf and stubborn old fox terrier that I didn’t bother to try grabbing him. I thought that he would stick around with the other dogs that knew not to leave the area. I was so wrong. I blame myself for him being missing pretty much every day. I still look for him on fb posts, craigslist, and on the found section of shelter websites, but its almost been six months since he ran away and I’ve pretty much lost hope on him ever returning.
He was my baby. He looked stunning but he also is the biggest scardy-cat and he was totally spoiled. He threw fits and he YELLED at me when he didn’t get what he wanted. There was once he threw himself on the ground and wouldn’t get up because he didn’t want to go inside. Me and my boyfriend (at the time) had to DRAG him in. Then he just sat at the door howling and crying and throwing a fit for a full minute. The day we brought him home was one of the best days in my whole life. I remember what we brought a carrier to put him in on the journey back, but we didn’t use it because I just wanted to cuddle him the entire time. He was so timid and shy at first, but he came such a long way. Huskies are a lot of work, but he was so worth it. Even though he was a lot sometimes, I loved my puppy Karter to bits and still do to this day. He was so gorgeous and smart and not to mention he adored everyone he met, but mostly my little siblings, which is so special to me.
He got so much bigger every day. it’s hard to believe that he fit in my lap when we first brought him home, and that he liked to sleep in the cat tube. I look at the pictures the breeders sent us of him growing up, and the ones of his first day home.. and I’m just so shocked. Karter definitely wasn’t the tiny puppy we picked up anymore, even if he still thought that he is.
As a puppy, he LOVED to be held. Whenever I took him out to use the restroom he would cry until I picked him up when he was done. I would carry him around on my hip like a toddler and he was the happiest pup in the entire world. More than once I brought him grocery shopping with my boyfriend and just help him there and he was completely fine. It was absolutely the cutest thing ever.
As he grew, so did his vocals. I adored it. When I dreamed of owning a husky, I always wanted a talker. No matter how big he got, or how long he’s been missing, he will always be my little puppy. I will never forget the feeling of holding him in my arms the first time, when we finally brought him home, teaching him his first commands, and getting to carry him everywhere. He may grow and at some point he might not play much at all, but I don’t think he’ll ever stop being my baby boy.

And here’s one last picture of him as a lil nugget eating his sister’s face, because why not.
“EEEKKKKK I CANT BELIEVE IT OMG THANKS SO MUCH” ~ day I brought him home
I fell in love with this dude the first chance I saw him. One of my biggest dreams has always been a lost siberian husky, with a 1st gen exact stat in close second. So as soon as I saw him, and how close he was to both of those things, I knew I had to bring him home.
When I made an offer, someone kept offering a little bit more than me each time, but I was so determined. I needed to bring him home even if I had to overpay loads for him. I finally offered 3k, even though he was probably worth about 1k. And I finally got accepted! The old owner sent me his link and that was that!
Now here my baby boy is, safe and sound! He might not be exactly what I’ve been wanting, but he’s just perfect in my mind and is never EVER leaving me. My Karter is in his forever home ♥
