Goofy-eyed husky finds love, new home and internet fame along the way
Jubilee was rejected by her breeder after he complained he couldn’t sell such an odd-looking dog.
Huffington Post reports that a sweet Siberian husky with remarkable eyes, who was described by a breeder as “weird,” has rocketed to internet fame and found a new home.
Jubilee, 4, was dropped off at the Husky House shelter in Matawan, New Jersey, two years ago after her breeder complained he couldn’t sell such an odd-looking dog. In an effort to seduce a future owner, the shelter wrote a heartbreaking appeal on Facebook.
“Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don’t know why I don’t look like them,” Jubilee “wrote” last week (with the help of her humans). “I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog.” The message went viral and Jubilee soon found a new home:
UPDATE – Thanks to everyone who shared Jubilee’s story. She has found her forever home with previous Husky House adopters and joins her new fur-siblings in a wonderful new life!
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.
I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog. I like other dogs, but I don’t like cats. I love people, but I’m a little shy because people mostly laugh at the way I look.
Doesn’t anyone want a funny looking husky? I wish I had a family of my own who could love me even though I’m not pretty. Apply to adopt Jubilee at huskyhouse.org The shelter even arranged a bit of a make-over for Jubilee, thanks to a nearby grooming centre that volunteered its services.
Thousands of people responded to the Facebook posts about Jubilee and said things like: “She’s right. She’s not pretty – she’s beautiful!” Jubilee’s condition, which created her unusual look, is congenital, but isn’t a health problem, according to the shelter. “We want to thank everyone for the overwhelming amount of support, comments, love and outreach for our Jubilee,” the shelter posted on Facebook. “She is very special.”
