Facts about Nanook

  • Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Husky Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
This devastatingly handsome boy is Nanook and he is hoping to find a loving forever home he can call his own. Nanook is nervous with new people. Luckily he is a huge fan of treats, particularly the jerky style ones, so giving him an appropriate amount of goodies is a great way to win him over. His love of food will be helpful down the line as he still needs some work on his training. Depending on your experience with dogs, he may need to be signed up for positive, reward-based training classes before going to his new home. Nanook is a high energy breed that will need lots of exercise to be happy. He is still getting used to walking on leash but once he gets the hang of it he'll make an excellent running partner. When he isn't out on adventures, he likes to be by your side and may even flop down at your feet for a good belly pet. Nanook loves the company of other dogs and will do best in a home with another active dog. He has shown a bit of a prey drive here and needs a home without cats or small animals. Nanook can live with children aged 10 and up that will be respectful of him. If you are interested in potentially adopting Nanook, please come to the front to fill out an adoption application today!
