Que was surrendered by his owner to a local shelter due to the owner's failing health, to the point where he could no longer properly care for the dog. Que came to us somewhat overweight from being inactive so he had several pounds to lose and has already made great progress through exercise and the appropriate amount of food provided. He has lost over 10 lbs so far.
He gets along with other socialized dogs (females and some males). He does have an alpha personality so will need to be in a home with other non-alpha dogs or he would do just as well as an only dog, as some other dogs may not do well with an alpha Husky coming into their home. Cats are most likely a no-no.
Que travels well in the car. He does not do well with young children but older, teenage children should be fine. He's done some moving around so really needs stability and structure. Que needs a strong alpha owner where he knows who is in charge and can feel safe and secure in his new home.
He is very friendly with adults and seeks out attention, sometimes by greeting them with a jump to give you a hug. He has been through behavior and obedience training and his adopter will be provided with complimentary training to help get him settled into his new home, but must live in the Pinellas, Hillsborough, Citrus, or Pasco county areas due to the location of the trainer.
Que has been taken on light bike rides for him to run alongside to help him lose weight. He will make a great jogging, walking or bike companion for his adopter.
Other than his weight, Que is healthy, Heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. This boy is eager to show you how active, loving and loyal real Huskies can be. Fill out an adoption application on our website, www.siberrescue.com, today.
