Hey there, Niko here! I’m a young Malamute/Husky mix who was rescued from a high kill shelter. I’m on the smaller side, weighing in at 60 lbs. I love to play with other dogs, but can be a bit rough and tumble, so sometimes need reminders of my own strength. Recently, I was in a home with another dog and did well except when it came to food… I wanted to eat my dinner and my housemates. If my new home has another dog, it will be important to always feed us separately. I am very athletic and would love an owner that likes to run, hike, skijor and more. Being athletic I could easily scale a fence if left alone too long, besides I would rather be hanging out with my people. I’ve been through a lot of changes in my short life which has resulted in some separation anxiety and if put in a crate will howl up a storm. I’ve been told that I’m pretty much perfect except for being a bit leash and food reactive. I do walk well on leash until I see a squirrel or cat to chase or another dog I'd like to go meet! In a nutshell, I’m smart, lovable, cuddly, athletic, attentive, potty trained and dog friendly with slow controlled introductions. Won’t woo make me yours?
