Do You Have What It Takes to Parent an Icon?

The new husky mascot of the University of Washington is looking for a home.

Have you always dreamed of owning a famous and beloved dog? If you live in Seattle, your moment has come.

After ten years of loyal service, the beloved mascot for the University of Washington, a husky named Dubs, has decided to retire  — no doubt to enjoy even longer naps and even more cuddles with his human family.

He doesn’t need a home — but the new mascot of UW, a husky puppy who has yet to be chosen, will need to be adopted. And he or she does not yet have a home.

For those interested, the University of Washington is accepting applications until Feb. 1. Requirements include providing Dubs II with a loving and safe home, a healthy diet, and regular training sessions. The adoptive family must attend all home football games, as well as drop off and pick up Dubs II from at least 30 athletic and community events a year.

So in essence, the responsibility is no greater than having a human teenager. Only this teenager can’t talk back, drive, use a smartphone, or ignore you. Perfect.

For some adorable photographs of Dubs I, who is still working through the 2018 football season until his replacement is found (and trained!), see below.

It's great to be a Husky! Beat the Utes!

I can't wait to get home tonight. I hear there's Duck stew cooking on the stove. I'm hungry!
