Hi! My name is
I have an Adoption Application Pending!
Siberian Husky/Retriever, Labrador/Mix
Date of Birth
February 24, 2018
He loves runs and walks and even 7+ km at a stretch doesn’t phase him. He has adapted very well to our home and follows us around until he sees us busy then he finds a bed and plays gently with his toys or rests. He didn’t appreciate us dancing today and actually barked once (he hasn’t barked till then) and placed himself between us but then joined in a group hug once we stopped.
He knows: sit, down and is learning: stay, wait, let’s go, come. He sits well for the harness to be attached. He walks much better with a chest lead harness that just a leash or top attached harness. Otherwise he is a very strong dog and gets carried away with his dashes from tree to post to bush, etc. Once he has a firmer grasp of commands the walks may be easier. But… today’s walk was much calmer than yesterday’s. He is a smart dog, I think.
Sleeping and house manners are impeccable. We don’t allow animals on the furniture but he would sure love it if his new family welcomed that. He tries but it almost seems like he is playing a trick on us.
He needs high value food rewards to motivate him during training but responds well to training so far. Colorado will need some ongoing work on loose leash walking. He gets along well with playful and like minded dogs, but if a dog reacts on leash he will bark back. He would do well in an active home with continued training. There might be other pets that will love unconditionally and be a great running/walking/life companion but Colorado’s forever people will have all that in a nutshell.
