LISTING FOR OWNER SERVICE

Ares is a medium energy, smaller built boy – he loves action but knows when to settle. He is quite independent- not huge on cuddles but will follow you if you leave a room. He is quite anxious – loud, sudden noises will make him flinch. Also, if you go to pet him too quickly he can also get startled. No history of abuse from what we know, he is just always anxious. He cannot be left alone in the home – it is best that he lives with a family with children and/or an adult at home.

He is very gentle, keeps to himself. He loves to play fetch with a tennis ball or branch. He loves chewing on tennis balls and rawhide. He also loves belly rubs. He’s not much of a hugger – he will give a non-aggressive growl if he’s smothered/hugged too much. He shows signs of separation anxiety – so being home alone he may chew on a shoe if he is very anxious, or if the garbage has been left out he will go through it. No history of bites/aggression. Every time he sees a dog on a walk he will cry to smell them, then he will be on his independent way. He wants to sniff every dog and human he comes into contact with!

Ares knows basic commands but these need to be given firmly as he’s stubborn.  He will initially pull on his harness out of excitement, but once his energy is depleted he walks nicely to heel. NO CRATES for him as this stresses him. He gets car sick on long rides but is great to take anywhere with you, just make sure not to feed him before you leave. He will sleep in his bed near you in the bedroom. Ares is currently fed about 3 times daily. He is very picky with dog food, he likes change and will get bored of the same food.

His new home should have a fenced yard, with a family that has previous or current experience with huskies and/or is looking specifically for a husky. Children and other dogs are preferred as he loves company and the hustle and bustle of a family.

All his vaccinations are up to date. He will need a microchip.
