This is Finnegan. He is crate trained for overnight, housebroken, and affectionate with humans. We have only had him a month. We really threw ourselves into husky life– he goes on daily hikes, he loves puzzles, we walk him several times a day– he is honestly spoiled and loved. He knows sit, stay, and lay down (though he is a husky and ignores it if he wants to).
We chose Finnegan because he lived with cats before. Well, just like a lot of huskies, he was good with cats until he wasn’t. Something triggered Finnegan’s prey drive and he attacked one of our cats. She just came home from the hospital yesterday after needing surgery for chest wall damage and broken ribs. We are heartbroken but it’s not fair from the cats to be in danger and it’s not fair to Finnegan either. He has been on a leash or in the master bedroom since the attack. It’s a big bedroom but he deserves freedom, too.
He has a clean bill of health from the vet, and will be neutered prior to adoption. Genetic testing indicates he is all husky with no markers for genetic anomalies. The vet complimented how calm and well behaved he was. After his exam, he just laid at the vet’s feet.
He is a great dog and we love him a lot. We just weren’t a good fit for him. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application.
