Meet Gus. He is about 7 years old, neutered, and current with his shots. He is house trained and an overall great dog. Unfortunately, huskies have a very strong prey drive and Gus is no different; he can’t help himself around cats and small critters. Gus is very friendly with people and likes his lazy time on the couch or in bed but he also loves running and chasing squirrels and chipmunks. He should definitely be in a fenced area if possible as he has gone for a few walk-abouts when he was left unattended. He loves other dogs, although he might be a little bit of a rough player for a small breed or a frail dog friend. He does great with our 5 and 6 year old boys but I don’t think he’d be right for younger kids who might pull his hair or try to climb him etc. He does not like having his hair pulled or being brushed. When we brush him out it’s usually a 2-person job, one to pet and distract/hold him while the other person brushes. He is a fun goofball and a very handsome boy to boot. He is not overly barky or a huge howler like some huskies I’ve known. Other than the problem with cats and small critters, he has never had any aggression issues and the only thing he’s ever bitten was his brush, as he will tell you it is evil. That said, there is plenty to love about him for the right household.
