    “Arvid is a smart, playful lad who has a lot of personality and energy! He is happiest with regular exercise, lots of people loving and of course, something good to chew!”

    “Initially shy, Arvid is warming up and loves to have belly rubs and likes nothing better than hanging with his “peeps”.

    Arvid is house trained. We have not quite figured out the signals for when to go out, however, with regular walks and yard visits, he does all his business outside. He sleeps through the night in his own room and can be left for several hours (with something to play with!).

    Being part Husky, Arvid does display some “mouthing” behavior. This is improving quickly as he can be re-directed to toys and/or bones. Oh man, does he love a good bone, chew toy, stuffed toy…oh and shoes, boots, gloves and anything else left in his path. With those kept safely out of his way, all is good! Because of this, he should go to a home with older children only.

    Walking on a leash is no problem. We have not yet learned to heel, but there is no real pulling and Arvid is happy to go anywhere you are going! (He does get pretty excited when rabbits are in sight!) There are no other pets in the house but when meeting other dogs on walks, he is curious and appears to be pleased to have a quick visit and then on to the business of sniffing and walking.

    We hear some “Husky Howling” from time to time but he sings in key and rarely barks.”

    Arvid is so smart and charming. He will love being with your active, loving family.
