The Scottish SPCA has launched a special appeal to find the ideal home for a Siberian husky puppy.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity took in Mika, a three-month-old male pup, after his previous owner could no longer look after him.

Staff at the charity’s Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Cardonald are encouraging husky-lovers who can offer Mika a stable future to come forward.

Animal care assistant Josh Wilson said: “Mika is an adorable looking wee pup so, unsurprisingly, we’ve had quite a lot of interest in him already.

“However, we’re looking for a very specific type of home for Mika and unfortunately we’ve not found his perfect owner just yet.

“Huskies are wonderful dogs but they aren’t for everyone. They need experienced owners who can bring out the best in them.

“Ideally we’d like Mika to go to a home where he can enjoy the company of another husky.

“Being a young boy, Mika is naturally energetic and he can be quite stubborn and independent.

“Although he’s small now, he’ll soon grow into a strapping big lad and he’ll need lots of space, not to mention a large amount of exercise

every day.

“We’re hoping to find Mika an owner who will not only give him the lifestyle and care he needs, but also invest further time and effort in

his training and socialisation.

“Mika is a fantastic dog with lots to offer. We’re sure the right person is out there for him and we’re just hoping they see our appeal so he can start living the fun and active life he deserves.”

Anyone who can offer Mika a new home is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA’s Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre on 03000 999 999.
