Hi there, my name is Bellatrix!! You might consider me a pocket husky because at aprox. 4 years old, I only weigh about 45lbs, so I’m full grown! I’m perfect for anyone looking for all the fun, independence, loyalty, and beauty of a husky-but in a smaller package. I can be timid when I first meet you, but warm up quickly and enjoy giving kisses and getting petted. I like to have my own space, so I have learned that my crate is a fun and safe place to be and am fully crate trained. I often go lay in there on my own just to keep watch on everything that is happening around me and sleep there all night. I am house trained, know basic commands and walk wonderfully on a leash-I don’t pull at all if you lead me. I’ve also graduated from professional training. I will stay off your couch and bed, and I’m not the type of gal who wants to be in your face all the time. I get along great with kids who like to play and will also let me have my space when I’m done and ready to relax. I am energetic, but not as much so as a typical husky. I like to bounce and prance when I am happy and often entertain myself with toys. I need regular exercise and am happy to get it by running next you on a bike, taking walks or hikes, and throwing the ball in the yard. My own backyard to run around and play would be wonderful, but as long as I am exercised regularly, I can live anywhere. I get along well with most other dogs but I get really excited when I first meet them, so it’s important that we are introduced properly and get off on the right foot. I would do great with a fur sibling, but would also be fine as an only dog. I like to chase critters, so I would be best in a home with no cats, bunnies, birds, etc. I will definitely chase off anything that may show up unwanted in the yard.
