Bari is a handsome two year old Husky Boy who was picked up as a stray by a local shelter. He is very friendly, playful and even cat friendly. When introduced to a cat he seemed a bit timid of it. However, caution should still be taken with introductions if his adopter also has a cat. He enjoyed his playgroup time at the shelter and met some friends (as seen in a couple of his pictures).
Being a young Husky, Bari is a ball of energy. He needs activities to keep him occupied; otherwise he'll find your beloved shoe and it won't be to try it on for size other than how well it fits in his mouth. Bari loves to parade through the house with one of his squeaker toys in his mouth; it appears he merely wants to hold it. Bones are a different story as he only needs a few hours alone with one before it's gone.
Bari has a great personality, one minute he is very playful but then he also settles down and relaxes once he is tired out from walks, playing, or running around the yard. With such an abundance of enthusiasm he can tend to play rough and be mouthy with his humans so we feel he should be in a home with no or older children. He also travels well in the car.
Bari is a bit shy at first, requiring some time to get to know you, before you get to know him. Once he is comfortable with you, he will use his nose as an instrument for all the attention he can get. Typical Husky behavior; Bari is always looking for an opportunity to run off to Alaska. If you are walking out the front door, watch out for this guy as he will be right behind you.
Bari walks well on lead as he doesn't pull too much. He is being crate trained and will let you know how much he doesn't appreciate it with the whine and occasional Husky howl. Most Huskies wind up never needing a crate as they typically like to be near their humans, especially at night.
Bari is Heartworm positive and will be treated using the "slow kill" method. His adopter will be provided with instructions on this method as well as Heartworm medication.
He is otherwise healthy, neutered, housebroken, up-to-date on vaccines, and microchipped. Bari lost his way and his family never came to save him. Give the boy a second chance at a loving, forever home, fill out an adoption application on our website, www.siberrescue.com, today.
