Dick is a very sweet 2 year old husky.  He is super friendly and inquisitive.  He loves being a sled dog, but in the excitement of mushing he has seizures.  They usually pass quickly, but he can’t be a working dog.  Dick would love to be a pet.  He is housebroken and loves people.  He could possibly be a skijor dog and often times seizures can go away as they get older, or they can get worse.  But there is treatment out there!!  I had a dog that had seizures every day until we got them under control.  He was only a year old at the time and lived to be over 10 years old before he died of cancer.  Once he was treated he only had 1 or 2 seizures a year.  I continued to skijor with him and he was one of my best lead dogs.  So, seizures aren’t a death sentence!  They just need to be managed.  His owners love him, but can’t take the chance of him having a seizure on the trail.  Let me know if you would like to meet Dick.
