Cross-eyed husky Jubilee finds forever home in New Jersey
MATAWAN, N.J. - A "funny looking" Siberian husky has found her forever home in New Jersey after allegedly being deemed "unsellable" by a breeder.
Jubilee, a cross-eyed 4-year-old dog, initially had trouble finding interested adopters at Monmouth County's Husky House — a nonprofit that helps abandoned huskies and other dogs across the Tri-State area.
"Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don’t know why I don’t look like them," the 'pup' wrote in a Facebook post.

"I love people," the post read. "But I’m a little shy because people mostly laugh at the way I look."
After Jubilee's post on Tuesday, the shelter saw an overwhelming response from the public. By Saturday, Jubilee's the Facebook post racked up more than 44,000 shares.
Husky House expressed gratitude for the support, love and outreach for its newfound celebrity.
