Normal husky coat which will require regular brushing. You should aim for once a week or so, and more when he is blowing his coat, typically twice a year.

Fence: Strong tie-out recommended. He is an escape artist (can climb fences, and flip up gate latches)

Solo or siblings: Requires a sibling, was adopted as a solo dog and was anxious, Just wasn't the right environment for him.

From the foster: Need a snuggle buddy? Teddy is the one to keep you cozy at night and "aaaoooohhh" sweet nothings. Teddy gets along best with female dogs, and will take redirection well from dogs and humans. He tends to jump when greeting people and likes to counter surf. Teddy paces to let you know he needs to get business done, but has had a couple of accidents. He enjoys walking nicely on the leash (not pulling too hard), followed by cuddles on the couch with his foster and the kids, nudging them for pets. Teddy does have some separation anxiety when home alone. Shared walls/apartment living would not be a good fit as he can be noisy at times, he is getting better and many times will go lay in his crate by choice when we are home. He recently started having free roam at night and has been doing really good with the additional freedom in the house.

Adoption Fee: $400
