COURTESY POST: Boss is a 7 year old Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix but you would never guess he was a day over 2 with his rambunctious disposition and supersoft coat. Boss is a snuggle bug and especially enjoys getting his belly and ears scratched and napping in bed with his humans. Other hobbies include playing fetch, chasing squirrels, and relaxing with a nice rawhide chew. He attended basic obedience training and knows sit, down, wait, and drop it. He has been a city dog his whole life but loves any chance to play in the country.
Boss has been in a loving home since he was a puppy but is in need of a new home because his family added a baby to the pack, and Boss has displayed some aggressive behavior. He is a marshmallow with adults and despite his problems with children in the home, he simply ignores them when passing them on walks.
Boss needs a home without any young children and needs someone who has experience with large strong-willed breeds, preferably Huskies. He also needs someone who has the strength and energy to meet his need for 45-60 min/day of structured walks (and/or the finances to send him to doggy daycare). He's attended doggy daycare and boarding, and is well socialized in that environment, though he occasionally growls when encountering other dogs while leashed or in dog parks. He could be in a home with another dog if the chemistry is good, particularly if the other dog is submissive. He is not off-leash trained so would do best in a fenced environment in case of a home with outside space.
Boss is a hilarious happy boy and will be a loving companion and devoted protector for the right human family.
