Shadow is a handsome, tall and lean Husky who was picked up as a stray and never claimed by his owner.
He is very friendly and playful with humans. He has a silly personality and, when in a playful mood, he will roll around on the floor looking for humans to interact with him. He welcomes belly rubs as well. He will sit on command with or without treats.
Shadow appears to do well with other dogs outside the home but inside is somewhat territorial with them. This is something that will involve some training, patience, and time to work through and it may be of some benefit to work with a professional trainer.
Socializing with other dogs in controlled settings outside the home may also help as Shadow did well in the play yard at the shelter with other dogs. Because of his territorial behavior in the home, we highly recommend there should be no other small animals such as cats as he has shown aggression towards them.
We believe Shadow would settle into a new home most quickly if he were the only animal in the home. Once he realizes that he is loved and wanted and has had time to socialize with other dogs, he may be more acceptable of a companion.
Shadow enjoys being praised for good behavior and obeying commands. After observing his household behavior, we think he is likely to be an escape artist; inspecting gates, surveying outside perimeter, including nudging and pushing locks on the gates with his nose.
Shadow has shown some destruction when left on his own, unsupervised, so we recommend crating him until he adapts to his home setting and demonstrates he can be trusted on his own.
Shadow rides well in the car, sitting nicely in the seat or laying his head on your lap or shoulder.
This wonderful boy is healthy, Heartworm negative, housebroken, neutered, current on vaccines, and microchipped. He is deserving of a forever home and is still young enough to learn how to become the amazing companion Huskies are bred to be.
