MAX 2 💙
Fostered in Schomberg, ON
From his foster mama:
From the moment I saw Max, I knew he needed to make his way to Canada to find his forever family.
Max is a 1 yr old male husky. He weighs aprox. 45lbs( and needs to gain more weight).
Beautiful,sweet, blue eyed Max came here from Cairo, Egypt, 5 weeks ago. Max was friendly with us from the start and was good with our 3 dogs, but very reserved.
Max spent alot of time sleeping, the first few weeks and whined if outside walking for too long. He preferred to be in the house, near people and the other dogs, where he felt safe.
As Max gained some weight( he was extremely thin), got his strength back and started to trust us, we started to see more of his personality. He is very much a husky! He howls when he is happy to see you, he is intelligent(a very fast learner)and playful.
He knows sit, stay( though he’s still selective with that), leave it, and walks pretty good on a leash(though still can pull, as huskies tend to do) so we keep working on this.
He is getting better at not bolting out of the house and learning to stay, until we say he can exit the house( still needs work with this as, he can get excited with the other dogs and forget)
Max is always on a leash outside and never outside on his own( he can slip his harness and his collar). While inside, he is also on a leash, attached to me, and this is most of the day while I am home. This keeps him from getting into something he shouldn’t and learn the rules better, etc. Max is very good with just chilling in the kitchen while I putter, or laying by the couch while I watch TV.
Max is being crate trained and though he hated it for the first few weeks, he is doing very well adjusting to it. He has stopped whining at night and is good throughout the whole night. The past 2 days he has started going into the crate on his own and having a sleep with the door open. He still needs coaxing to go in at other times, with a treat. Max s crated when no one is home and through out the day, periodically wen we are.
Max would do well in a house as the only dog, or a house with another dog, but it should be a female dog , unless your male is very docile and submissive. Max was quick to bond with my females but he and my male dog are hot and cold. The more comfortable Max gets, the more he tries to challenge the male. Max being on Leash helps a lot to avoid any issues.
Max is great with children, but sometimes jumps up on young children due to excitement. Though he gets better every day.
Max will bond well with his people and is very content to be nearby relaxing l. He will make a wonderful, loyal companion to anyone willing to take the time, to continue proper training, to help him be the best dog be can be.
