Cat Friendly: Unknown but doesn't have a high prey drive for small dogs so may very well be OK with cats.

Crate Trained: Yes but do not use one as she is completely trustworthy in the house

Housebroken: Yes. Has never had an accident in the house from day 1 of coming into rescue

Reaction to New People: Loves people and attention

Kid Friendly: Believe she would be. Hasn't been around many kids. But doesn't jump and is not nippy

Training: Knows sit

Grooming Needs: shorter coat and very much likes to be brushed. She should receive regular brushing, at least once per week, and more frequently when she is blowing her coat, usually twice per year.

Fence: Has a fenced yard at foster home and uses tie out for potty breaks

Solo or Siblings: Could be either. She does like having other dogs around and will lay down close to them. She does some play bowing but not sure she ever learned how to play like a husky

From the Foster: Iris is just such a delightful girl. She came in as a stray and it was obvious she had litters of pups in her past. She is very sweet, friendly older gal estimated to be between 7 and 8 years old. She loves pretty much everyone she meets and has shown no fear of people or getting pets since coming into rescue. Iris knows sit and takes treats very well. She is still gaining weight as she was pretty thin when she came in. Overall, she is a very petite husky with pretty short legs. Her head also has a bit of an unusual shape, so maybe she is hiding a mixed breed in her! She is not used to walking on a leash so she does a lot of zig zagging, but she doesn't pull and with a little training could become a great walking partner. Iris also has never had an accident in the house since joining her foster family. In fact, they think she is pretty much perfect! She could be added to any family that would give her love and attention.
