At the San Diego Department of Animal Services, a three-year-old husky has been returned to the shelter seven times. Alas, the beautiful dog named Houdini with the mesmerizing blue eyes still needs a home – a patient and compassionate owner would fit the bill.
The staff at the San Diego shelter say the dog was named Houdini because of his “uncanny ability to escape.” One time the friendly pooch jumped out of a second-story window taking the screen with him.
So what kind of a home would Houdini love? Previous adopters returned the dog because he was too energetic and stated they weren’t able to bond with him. The shelter says Houdini more than likely has become so confused with all the homes he has been in and the different people. Perhaps the clever pooch views his short stays at these homes as a “mini adventure” more than a real place where he would actually belong. His previous stays have only been for a few days, and how is a dog expected to become comfortable or bond with a new family in so short a time?
According to the press release, Houdini’s “high energy” would make him a perfect canine candidate for a running companion with an enclosed and secure yard. He is noted to be very trainable and knows several commands.
“He just needs a patient, compassionate new owner that is willing to commit to addressing his special needs,” Kelly Campbell, Director of the San Diego County Department of Animal Services stated.
The department has a trainer on hand who would be willing to work with the right adopter to help at no cost.
