Gibby is very friendly with people likes car rides going on walks and runs and taking naps. He is good in the house and prefers to be inside during the day. He is house trained and exhibits no destructive behavior to belongings or furniture. He likes to be with people all day and sleep in bedroom. Doesn't like crates yet. He has had no signs of aggression when I've had him. He is a gentle guy and very trainable. He knows 'sit' and 'leave it' and is very obedient. He loves playing with dogs his size. To rough for smaller dogs. Best to be homed as a single dog or with a well adjusted friendly large dog for company.
Gibson's exercise needs are low maintenance for his breed. He will sleep at your feet while you work from home or watch you cook and do chores. He has gone out dining and out shopping- he loves to meet people. I work full time and take him out in the evenings and mornings and that seems to be enough to keep him satisfied. He would be a great companion. I suspect he would like to run around with another furry companion if I had one for him. He plays with other friendly big dogs at the dog park! Gibby has growled at other dogs when approached by other dogs while he is on leash but has since shown improvement. He now attends doggy daycare and plays great with all the other dogs. He likes most dogs but will respond aggressively if a dog is aggressive with him.
He does have separation anxiety but is manageable because he just wants a person with him. I hardly ever leave him alone except for short periods (10-15 minutes) but mainly lots of barking and trying to go through door or window to get to me. When left in the backyard for some time while knowing you're inside ( I watch him from a large window ) he will sleep by the door. He mainly wants to be by you. If there is another human out there he will follow them though- very friendly. He could benefit from crate training but I think it will take time. Lots of barking when left alone even for short periods of time He needs a human to feel secure- not necessarily the owner. He stays at a relative's house when I run errands and he does really well! He also regularly attends doggy daycare and has been doing very well there. Not an apartment/condo dog.
He presents a prey drive - someone familiar with the husky breed will be a great match! No small animals cats or rural areas near livestock (cows sheep). He has learned to leave it with cats and squirrels on walks and will listen to command. But if he sees a cow or sheep he will pull very hard won't listen and wants to go after them. Must have strong person able to handle him on leash when he does pull.
Gibby needs a home that has some prior dog experience.
Kids 10+. He can be a little mouthy (not in an aggressive way) when you play with him. He also jumps when excited to see you or when he wants attention and could knock down a small child. Older children would probably be best.
