Wide-eyed husky Jubilee adopted after Facebook post goes viral

Jubilee a Siberian husky that was surrendered to a New Jersey shelter because of “weird” eyes has been adopted

Jubilee, a 4-year-old husky, was first dropped off at the Husky House in Matawan, N.J., a few years ago, after a breeder apparently "felt they just couldn't sell her", a spokesperson for Husky House told Buzzfeed News.

'Timing really is everything, ' said Marielle DiMartino, a volunteer at Husky House. The shelter had also posted the dog's pictures making an appeal to the users to adopt the dog.

"I came from a "breeder" who couldn't sell me because he said I was "weird" looking", the shelter shared to Facebook from Jubilee's point of view.

Husky House wrote on Facebook, in Jubilee's words: "Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them".

"I wish I was lovely so someone would like me to be their dog".

"I like other dogs, but I don't like cats". "I'm a little shy because people mostly laugh at the way I look".

"Nobody wants a amusing looking sled dog?"

Jubilee, who suffers from a congenital eyelid issue, has since lived at the New Jersey shelter.

The shelter even arranged a bit of a make-over for Jubilee, thanks to a nearby grooming center that volunteered its services. So then it's not surprising that she was adopted soon after the post went viral. She has found her forever home with previous Husky House...

Four-year-old Jubilee shot to internet stardom last week when a Facebook post about her from New Jersey-based shelter Husky House, in the USA, went viral.

Fans began sending in their Jubilee-inspired artwork to Husky House to show their support for "Team Jubilee", a charitable group started to raise money for the organization's adoptable dogs. The good, Husky loving people there put out the word about Jubilee on Facebook and from there, her story went viral.

'We are so happy to see that everyone feels she is as wonderful as we always knew she was'.

Another added: "She's so lovely and I love her eyes".
