Krypto came to us from a kill shelter in CA. He has made SO much progress since he has come to us; he is a completely different dog in his foster home now. He started out very scared and timid of new people and sounds.
Krypto’s downfall has been his struggle in communication – he makes a lot of grumbly, growly sounds, so much so that at first we were concerned of him possibly biting when he first got here. Over time we have learned that this is basically how he tries to communicate. It’s not quite the talking of typical huskies and can sound a little intimidating, but we really don’t see a situation where he would intentionally bite a human unless he was mishandled. We are recommending a home with no small children because he can be a little different in his behavior than other dogs.
He is SUCH a sweet, loving, attention-seeking dog once he gets comfortable. He will come up to his human and roll and snuggly against you for love and pets. He will also jump up to greet you enthusiastically if he gets excited!
He loves playing with other dogs, and is good at knowing the limits of other dogs when it comes to play – for example, he will play rough and energetically with the adult dog in his foster home, but is gentle and knows exactly how hard he can play with the 3-mo puppy there without hurting her! His growly / grumbly sounds have on occasion started some scuffles between other dogs, primarily from what we have seen because the other dog doesn’t get him yet and assumes he is trying to fight…. it’s been interesting to watch him with other dogs because you can really see the other dogs trying to figure him out!
He is kennel-trained, though he has not shown any destructive behavior when left outside of the kennel at home with other dogs. His leash-walking skills are still a work in progress.
No small kids and no cats recommended in his home, but other dogs would be good! We will require an intro for him with other dogs just to see how they get along first. Please let us know if you would like to meet Krypto!
NO SMALL KIDS
Krypto’s adoption fee is $150. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, chipped, and neutered.
