Crate Trained: Yes, barks and whines but settles down. Needs heavy duty, non plastic crate
Energy Level: Low-Medium when alone but loves to play
Reaction to New People: Happy, but jumps
Kid Friendly: Yes but he's a big boy and jumps so could unintentionally knock down smaller children
Training: Sit, shake both paws, lay down, come when he wants to. Walks well on a leash but pulls HARD at things. Takes treats so nice. Isn't interested in human food, aka when we eat he's not begging.
Grooming Needs: Standard Husky coat that requires frequent brushing
Fence: Not necessary. He goes potty on short walks. But he does like to roam ours. He's never tried to dig. He can't jump because he's a little hefty, 4 foot fence would be ok. But he IS super smart and will find ways to escape if left too long.
Solo or Siblings: He would be a great single child. He's mellow, snuggles, doesn't need to husky play. He would also love a tolerant brother or sister, as he likes to play a lot when he's ready.
From the foster: Hey guys phantom here! I'm loving my foster home, I have lots of room to run and we are super active. My foster mom says I still don't like my kennel so much. But I only cry for a little while, or a long time, she never knows how long I'll be howling for. She says I don't even need my kennel, that's I'm a cute lazy boy. She only kennels me because of my foster brothers. They are a little crabby at me, foster mom says they are jealous. We went in a walk today, 3 miles, I was so tired!! But I followed my foster brother Axel and we had a great time. I pull HARD when I want something and I am so stubborn, but other then that, I walk great!! I go potty on the leash if I need to!
My hooman brother and sister love my snuggles. I even take treats from them so nice!! I need some training on stubbornness, otherwise foster mom says I'm doing great.
