Apollo is a vibrant 6 year old, male husky. His owners spent an incredible amount of time loving and training him: he knows over 25 commands/tricks (including peek-a-boo and say your prayers). Apollo has been trained to run on a treadmill, which he loves, and sees his crate as his safe place to sleep and retreat. Due to the owners’ medical diagnosis, his previous owners have to rehome their boy.
He is not as vocal as his husky peers, howling to firetrucks that go by but not too chatty. He’s mellow for a husky but needs to be stimulated through mind games or structured walks to remain his goofy, light-hearted self.
Although he’s a lover, he needs a home without small children or small pets due to resource guarding and reactiveness. He has grown up with babies, cats, and large dogs but has shown irritation towards littles and bit a small dog this year (she survived). Like any husky, he needs a fenced yard or kept on a lead.
He prefers affection through butt scratches and armpit rubs over snuggles. When you meet him, you’ll want to call him Apollo SuperPup! It’s to my heartbreak that I’m physically unable to keep him.
