Hi, my name is Nelson and I am a little over a year old.
I am your typical hyper teenage Siberian Husky and need some training. I like to jump up on you, I have no leash manners. I do know how to sit for my dinner or a treat, and know how to do down. I could really benefit from physical and mental exercise, as well as attending obedience classes to better my manners and build a bond with you.
I have not been tested with cats, but given my breed, cats are strongly not recommended and I will not be adopted to a home with cats. Small dogs would also not be recommended. No younger kids please due to my resource guarding. I am dog friendly but I would need to meet my new dog-sibling to make sure we are compatible before going home. I do seem to prefer females over males.
I am a good boy, and I LOVE the outdoors. It’s so fun to be outside! I am not suitable for an apartment or condo home. I eat very quickly and I resource guard my food badly, as well as things I find or toys. I love to get into the garbage and am not easily called off of it to clean up my mess. I will even guard my leash if it still attached to me. Please do not touch my food while I am eating! My forever human must have experience in dealing with resource guarding.
I am fairly quiet here and am quiet in a crate once you manage to get me in but I do not go in willingly most of the time so need some time to get used to it.
I am up to date on my vaccinations and microchipped. I am not yet neutered and will be adopted on a strict non-breeding and neuter contract to be completed once I am settled in and calmer.
