Mine are all unadopable...that's how they wound up with me in the first place...they are either old, have medical problems or have (had) behavioral issues that have prevented them from being able to be placed. To me, they are the best dogs in the world, but most people want the "perfect" dog that is going to live forever, has no illnesses and no emotional baggage...if it were only a perfect world!

Neither of them probably would be. Molly is almost 11 years old so that right there would turn the vast majority of people away. Take away the age though and she would be, she's a great dog.

Nobody would want Lucy either, unless they want a 1 year old with luxating patellas, legg-perthes disease, not housebroken, and basically not trained in any sense of the word. She might make a good guard dog though.

Not that I would ever think of parting with my dog, but I don't think Cinnamon is very adoptable, despite being an energetic, healthy seven year old, who's a sweetheart overall, she's usually shy around strangers, and can get territorial at times. She also has seperation anxiety, can't bear to be away from us.

OC is very adoptable to anyody who has experience with Siberian Huskies or other dominant/stubborn/independent breeds He is a young adult (4 years), very playful and exuberant, very social and has great manners. Not to mention he is a stunning animal He would be a huge failure if someone adopted him who cant handle an average Siberian Husky though. He needs someone who is firm and consistant without being over-bearing. He has no respect for people who try to be too rough on him and I wouldnt put it past him to bite in retalliation if I'm not around. OC also cant be left alone with other animals (large or small). he is fine with dogs though.

Ronan on the other hand is not adoptable to anyone but those who not only knows and understands the Siberian Husky breed (or a breed similar) but also would be willing to put forth the time and energy to make sure he is worked hard (at least 3 times a week if not more). He is also an escape artistm doesnt do well with some dogs (overly dominant ones or other intact males - but will put up with them for the duration of a sled run, just dont expect them to live together peacefully). He will also kill small dogs without a second thought as well as other small animals. Ronan also needs a trainer who is not afraid to give a correction but is concientious enough about corrections to time them properly AND not give one that is too harsh as he shuts down easily and isnt motivated by any type of food or toy or anything other than running.

But I dont care cause to me they are perfect!!!
