"Doesn't anyone want a funny-looking Husky?" Cross-eyed pup finds forever home after two year wait.

We love to hear of heartbreaking stories that turn into happy endings! Jubilee the Siberian Husky has such a story. The unique looking pup, surrendered by her breeder for her "weird" looks, has finally found her forever home. The four-year-old dog was awaiting a family to call her own for two years at the Husky House rescue in New Jersey. This sweet girl was surrendered back in May 2018 by her breeder who said she was too odd looking to be saleable. 

But when Husky House posted about her on their Facebook page, the Internet fell in love. “My name is Jubilee. I’m a 4 year old female Husky who has been with Husky House for a long time. I came from a ‘breeder’ who couldn’t sell me because he said I was ‘weird’ looking. Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don’t know why I don’t look like them,” the post read. “I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog.”

To the rescue group's surprise, the post went viral, receiving more than 47,000 shares and 23,000 comments. Still, the rescue received few applications.

“We haven’t received many applications, even though all these comments say they want [her],” Husky House wrote in a Facebook Update.

Jubilee's adorably unique crossed eyes are due to a congenital issue that impacts the shape of her eyelids. Husky House made sure she was treated and examined by Dr. Doug Cotler of the South Brunswick Animal Hospital in New Jersey and this condition does not impact her overall health. She was also pampered at a local groomer before a meet and greet event to find her new family.

Finally, Jubilee found her happy ending. A couple who have adopted through Husky House before opened their hearts and homes. Her experienced fur parents are comfortable with this intelligent, high-energy breed, and she now has fur siblings to explore and learn with.

“One of Jubilee's favourite things to do when she was here at the rescue was to hang out and play with the other dogs. Especially her two best buds, Rosie and Rocky,” said a representative from Husky House. 

Jubilee has been an amazing ambassador for the rescue group and will continue to raise awareness through her story and through a Team Jubilee fundraising t-shirt Husky House has created. So far she has helped raise over $2,000 for Husky House.

“Since her original Facebook post had gone viral, we’ve received an overwhelming amount of love, support, and inquiries,” says a Husky House representative. “We are so happy to see that everyone feels she is as wonderful as we always knew she was.”

Rescue groups do such important work and Husky House will need continued support to find furever homes for “stray, abandoned and unwanted” dogs.

A Husky House representative notes, “we are hoping the increased attention extends to our other adoptables waiting for their loving, forever homes.”

They are also “dedicated to furthering the public's education concerning the issues of proper pet care and the importance of spaying and neutering all dogs and cats alike.”

Jubilee’s story is an important reminder for anyone looking to add a dog to their family: do your research! Whether you are looking into getting a dog from a rescue organization or a breeder, doing your research will help you make your decision about where to get your dog from and which breed is right for you and your lifestyle. Responsible breeders would never abandon their dogs and we are so glad this amazing girl has found a wonderful home!

For anyone interested in following Jubilee’s story, the rescue group shared, “Jubilee's parents have decided to create a Facebook page for her, which will allow their anonymity, but will give everyone a chance to see how she’s progressing."
