Dasher is looking for his forever home!

ADOPT – Dasher – Siberian Husky

Dasher was found lost on Christmas Eve and turned over to us from a shelter. He is an energetic 2-year old and a stunning, big boy. Dash is tall and quite fast at scootering. He loves to know where his people are and is very unhappy when contained away from them as he does have some separation anxiety when enclosed in a crate or small room. He can be left alone in the house if he has a distraction (bone) when left. Dash loves walks. His favorite pastime other than chewing
bones is shredding empty cardboard boxes.

He also likes to play hockey with old soup bones (never cooked!). Dash has worked hard to learn to behave with people in a house and loves petting and attention. True to his husky nature, he will counter surf and is sure to be underfoot if you are cooking or cleaning. He is sure the vacuum is a dangerous enemy. He is smart and learns quickly, particularly if treats are involved. He does not do well with negative reinforcement but responds well to praise and treats. He is great at catching, but sometimes impatience gets the better of him with stay. He loves people and enjoys petting and hugs, and can be very sweet. He also likes to discuss daily events and have conversations with his people. Dash can jump low gates and will climb them as well. He will need a tall secure fence or to be walked and run regularly. He enjoys going dog scootering and has wonderful endurance and speed. He has a high prey drive, so watch out for neighborhood critters that will take him off course. Dash has a history of seizures which are easily controlled on a low dose of medication, which he will likely need for the rest of his life. Due to his over-exuberance, he does not do well with other dogs and is best suited to be an only dog. He becomes over-excited and isn’t good at calming himself down, and is still working on jumping up when excited. Dash wants an active home with no non-adult children, as he really doesn’t know his own strength. This beautiful boy needs an experienced dog-savvy owner(s) to help him continue his progress in life.
