He was rescued as a puppy. A shadow to our 10 yr old female, but does not get along with our other male dog. He is 2 yrs old, 50 lbs., brindle, not neutered. He is a cuddler and very sweet. 3 dogs are too much for us and would love to see him go to a great home!! He loves companionship of his owner. He has some professional shock collar training as well.

Harley was returned to Alaqua after his family had to move overseas and could not take him. He is a sweet boy who loves everyone! He is house-trained, crate trained and walks great on a leash.

It's no mistake this 2 year old Huskie was named after a queen. Elizabeth is royal, beautiful, and wants to please her people. She is affectionate and wants to find a human to share the joy of life with. She knows how to sit, especially if you have a treat. She is intelligent and learns quickly, which is a classic Husky trait.
