Fence: Not required, strong tie-out. He is an escape artist.

Solo or siblings: Would do best as an only dog. Absolutely adores people and will definitely form a strong bond with "his person.

From the foster: Duke came to us as a surrender through a local vet clinic after escaping his yard and killing chickens on a neighboring farm. His previous family loved him dearly but didn't have the time or resources to keep him mentally and physically stimulated to prevent escaping. He has been a DREAM to foster. He is so fun to get to know with his cute husky bounces and "awooo's during meal times. He loves going for walks but also loves his down time on the couch with you. He does have a history of resource guarding with other dogs but I have yet to witness him have any resource guarding behaviors with me while fostering. He has been extra friendly with every person he's met but can be dog selective as he can be very dominant. With his high prey drive he should not be adopted into a home with small dogs or cats (inside or outside). He is going to make someone an INCREDIBLE companion and will probably make them be a husky person forever.

Adoption Fee: $175
