Dog - Husky, Siberian/Malamute, Alaskan
Age: 7.92 years
Weight: 96 lbs.
Current Status: Available Foster
Color: Black & White
Eye Color: Hazel/Brown
Weight: 96 pounds
Large Dog Friendly: Yes, especially female.
Small Dog Friendly: Yes
Cat Friendly: No
Crate Trained: Yes, but does well outside of the crate.
Housebroken: Yes, is very diligent about giving you signals to go out.
Energy Level: Moderate-Low. Frosty is a couch potato. He does get excited when you come home, but settles down very quickly. He is also interested in critters in the yard, but doesn't have the speed to catch them.
Reaction to New People: Frosty is excited to meet new people. It is one of the few times he gets overly energetic.
Kid Friendly: Not a lot of exposure to kids, but seemed to do well with the toddler and baby when visiting another foster home -- he mostly ignores them.
Training: Frosty knows sit, shake, stay, and lay down. He is stubborn though, like a typical northern breed.
Fence: Frosty is quite interested and distracted by wildlife, so a fence is strongly encouraged.
Solo or Siblings: Frosty would do just fine as a solo dog. He loves human attention and can get jealous if he sees another dog getting more attention than him. He does well around other dogs, especially females.
From the Foster: Frosty is a big ol' sweet baked potato. He's just as happy being a couch potato as he is going on a walk (to keep an eye on the neighborhood squirrels). He is a big boy, so when he gets excited, he can be a little intimidating/overwhelming, but he is just excited to show everyone how special he is. Once he is comfortable with you, he will follow you around the house begging for belly rubs (and treats). He is a smart guy and learns the rules of the house quickly, even if he is not keen to follow them. He is a cuddler at heart and doesn't know that 96 pound puppies aren't supposed to be lap dogs.
