Covi is a very excitable, energetic, happy-go-lucky young husky – he was found as a stray with many efforts spent searching for his owners to no avail.
He has met dogs of all sizes and does well with them for the most part. If they growl, he growls back and will assert himself, so he does have a more dominant personality and his ideal companion(s) in a home would be more on the submissive side. He has shown some food aggression (towards other dogs only) and is currently being fed separately – he was relatively skinny when found so we are optimistic that as he gains weight and has consistency and training, this will improve. He can take treats sitting next to other dogs without any issues, so his food aggression is not extreme.
He just LOVES to greet new people – he seems to have had very little training at all before coming to us so he does jump up to give kisses and is a really tall, leggy boy! For him it’s a form of affection / excitement to see you, but this would be something to keep in mind when it comes to children in a home. He has not shown human aggression, but because of his size and extremely high energy level, he will need older children only.
He is bursting with husky personality and is definitely a mischievous troublemaker – we would love him to go to a home that already has an understanding of the breed who will continue to work with him on his basic manners. He is a counter surfer, and very food motivated. He is also going to require a LOT of exercise – he will not do well in a home where he is not taken out often. He is currently going for daily runs next to a bike twice a day. He is happy doing a trot, but he really loves to run! He is definitely more on the higher energy side even for a husky.
He LOVES his ball and toys – if you have a toy in your hand he will just obsess over it nonstop til you give it to him or throw it so he can come back for more. He also loves car rides and is always eager to get in and go!
His finder volunteered to foster him, and does have cats in the home. She has muzzled him (or used his post-neuter cone!) to keep him from accidentally injuring a cat so far. Most huskies (especially rescues with unknown histories) have high prey drives, and though Covi is living in a home with cats right now, we do not think that would be his ideal longterm placement as he needs to be supervised and separated or he will chase them. None of the kitties have been harmed but his foster has been VERY diligent, and we don’t want to ever put Covi in a situation that was not ideal for him!

His adoption fee is $250. This helps to cover the cost of his neuter (unfortunately he did have complications after that resulted in a scrotal ablation, of which we would be happy to provide any details – this will have no effect on him longterm once he is fully healed up!), full vaccinations, heartworm and tick fever test (negative), and microchip.
