Miko: Siberian Husky (M) 4 years – ADOPTED


Name: Miko
Breed: Siberian Husky
Gender: Male (neutered)
Age: 4 years
Cats: No/Not tested
Dogs: Not good (see description)
Kids: Good, older


Miko is a handsome bi-eyed boy who is very happy to meet and loves people. He has a high energy level.

He’s not good with other dogs, but has been assessed by a trainer and needs very slow introductions to any dogs (while on leash) and carefully monitored for reaction. However, he is good with kids and currently lives with a 5 year old, but older may be better because of his high energy levels.  If around younger kids, he needs to be supervised since he may knock them over with trying to play.

Miko is obedient and will sit if told to for a treat and shake a paw. He needs to be walked on a front clip harness as he tends to pull on walks but settles nicely when walked on a harness of this type.  He does need to be corrected and told when he pulls and then he cooperates. Miko loves meeting people when out on walks and is okay if he sees another dog being walked but cannot get too close.  He will need supervision whilst in the yard as he will dig and escape if left alone.

Unfortunately Miko has not been walked enough lately so is very excitable when first on a walk, but settles down after he’s walked for a little bit.  He is good with commands and was seen by a trainer and followed all her commands nicely. The trainer has suggested with 2-3 training walks and leash work, he will do just fine. Once he is walked regularly, she thinks he will adjust very (he will need 2 walks per day).

Food is currently left in Miko’s bowl by his owner and he eats whenever he wants, he is not picky with food. He is contained in one area of the home.  Miko is up-to-date with Rabies but will need his routine vet care updating.
