Large Dog Friendly: Yes

Small Dog Friendly: Yes

Cat Friendly: No

Crate Trained: NO - Hates the kennel. He will cry, howl, scratch and chew/bite on the kennel to escape. He's currently being allowed free roam in an small area with baby gates. The time being left alone will be increasing as he continues to build trust in this setting.

Housebroken: Yes

Energy Level: Low

Reaction to New People: Friendly

Kid Friendly: Is scared of children. We don't have any but the few interactions we have seen, he gets really anxious and cowers even if he hears kids outside the house. Because of this Ferris would do best in a home with kids 12 and older. This is not something that is negotiable.

Training: He knows sit and is potty trained. His foster home is working on additional training.

Grooming Needs: Ferris has a standard husky coat which will require frequent thorough brushing. You should aim for at least once a week, and more when he is blowing his coat, typically twice a year.

Fence: He is a pretty chill pup who LOVES to go on walks. His foster home does not have a fenced in yard and he is happy regardless. He would like a fenced in yard to play in but it is not a necessity for Ferris.

Solo or Siblings: Ferris would do well as an only dog or with siblings.

From the Foster: Ferris is an extremely sweet boy who gives the most gentle kisses. He LOVES to go outside for walks and will do a small hippity hoppity dance and woos woos to tell you he's ready. Did I mention he's a dream on the leash? He's an ultra-chill dog who is content to just lounge around the house all day. He likes to keep his human around, in the vicinity of wherever he decides to hang. He is good with other dogs and will initiate play when he wants to but takes correction really well and will back off if the other dog doesn't want to play at that time. He is a picky eater but some wet food as a topper and he's good to go. He is 100% house trained and has had absolutely no accidents in the house. He is scared of kids, so adult kids who are patient will be the best fit. He did let a 15 year old stranger pet him on a walk. So, it's the uncertainty of little kids that makes him cower and anxious. Ferris is the best boy, are you his forever home?
