In shelter Dog

Manhattan, NY, 10009
Pet name:
White / Cream
CYRUS: 9.5 months (as of 9/16/22), Husky Mix, Neutered Male

ESTIMATED TO BE: About 55lbs Full Grown 

Please Note: We can not guarantee breed mix or age or full grown size, Both are an educated guess. 

Home Recommendation: Can live in the city or out of the city. Is a puppy so has the potential to be an amazing pal in the city. Wouldnt say no to the burbs. A high active household that is ready to take on the joys (and lots of hard work) of raising a puppy. These pups need adopters that have some solid dog experience under their belt. Adopters should have relevant breed experience as adults. Growing up with a dog isnt going to cut it. Their ideal adopter has either owned a dog as an adult or has solid experience dog sitting or fostering active breeds. They are going to need a lot of mental and physical stimulation. Adopters will need to be ready to spend a considerable amount of time and energy doing training - we are huge fans of professional training. Adopters need to be active people as this puppy will require a good amount of exercise and outdoor time as an adult. 

What is a Husky?: Originally bred to pull sleds, Huskies are one of the fastest and most active breeds. Think of them as really hairy olympic athletes. These dogs have a great love for cold weather and snow, and theyve got a reputation for being escape artists. They can climb high fences and dig below those that are not deeply planted into the ground (at least a few feet), so they should never be left unattended outdoors. (That goes for all dogs for safety reasons, but these in particular will Houdini their way out.) They also tend to have pretty high prey drive, so they are not a good option if there are small pets (rabbits, cats, etc.) or farm critters (chickens, ducks, etc.) in the home or nearby. Theyve become popular pets, however, because of their look -- fluff balls with piercing blue eyes.

What does owning this dog entail?: Lots of exercise and mental stimulation is non negotiable. Its going to be very important to keep this pup busy both physically and mentally -- that includes a minimum of 90 minutes of outdoor time every day for this high energy dog. A perfect walking, hiking, and running buddy. We strongly recommend a basic training course to get a more solid feel for this pups individual needs and how to best communicate with each other. A well trained dog is a happy dog. Also, youre going to need to be okay with lots of cleaning -- this pooch is high shedding.

HIS FOSTER SAYS: Cyrus is basically the seven dwarfs combined into one pup. Sometimes hes dopey, sometimes hes sleepy, sometimes hes sneezy, sometimes hes happy. Dont be deceived by the derpy underbite, hes got brains to match and learns quick! His favorite thing to do is just play with other dogs, especially bigger ones. Hes definitely in the middle of a growth spurt and getting bigger every day, so hes still figuring out his body in some ways (hasnt quite learned that he needs to hold back now!). When hes not doing puppy things outside, hes a big snoozer at home. Not the most cuddly, but hell come hang with you on the couch and occasionally sleep in youre lap. Also very excited to see you in the morning or when you come home after a long day :). Still working on a bit of potty training but hes got pee pads down and goes every time you take him out! Once you know his schedule its easy to manage too. Hes a husky mix so prepare for some vocals too, particularly when hes excited and playing. Hes become popular at my local coffee shop playing with other pups and definitely a social butterfly with other dogs. He may misread body language sometimes (sometimes misinterprets disinterest from other dogs as not interested *yet*), but hell learn that as he gets older and responds well to correcting from other dogs. Super food motivated, so easy to train and already knows sit and stay. He does like to mischievously steal food and toys sometimes though, so be ready to work on trading with him as he matures. 

Energy Level: Higher - As an adult might need up to 90 minutes of walking/ active outdoor exercise a day. 

Personality: Life of the party. Puppies this young are pretty similar to one another. Think lots of energy, equal amounts of napping. A zest for human connection and the potential to be incredible dogs with lots of training, routine and guidance. Puppies are incredibly loving and sweet. They just need lots of help learning how to be good boys and girls 

House Trained: Yes!

Separation Anxiety & Leash Manners: On par for their age. Learning to self soothe. Cries for a few minutes when left alone. Leash skills on par for his age. 

Cuddle Factor: Medium to High - puppies are usually gluttons for affection and skin to fur contact lol 

Mouthiness: Medium to High - this puppy is just entering its teething phase so you can expect it to get worse before it gets better.

Good With Other Dogs: Yes! These nuggets are cleared to interact with healthy adult dogs but shouldnt be going on playdates with other puppies (they need a few more vaccine boosters before they are allowed to do that). Socialization with other dogs is a huge part of raising a puppy. They have all of the potential to be amazing with other dogs ... the ball is in your court. 

Good with Cats: Yes! Fun fact: all puppies are good with cats. Its up to the owner to teach their puppy to not chase the cat and to respect the cats boundaries. If you own a cat and want to add a puppy into the mix its very important that your cat has met a dog before and was comfortable around it. You dont want to ruin your cats life by adding a dog, no one wants to live with a grumpy cat. 

Good with Kids: Okay for a home with kind and respectful kids 10 and up. Adopters should be aware of teething stages of a puppy if they have children in the home. 

Medical Status: Neutered and microchipped. Up to date on vaccines. Treated with dewormer and upon intake. Adopters will need to finish the DHPP series "puppy vaccines" and do the Rabies vaccine at 16 weeks of age. 

How Did They End Up With Social Tees: Left at a high volume shelter in TN with his other siblings. Our rescue partner pulled them, had them vetted and transported to NYC. While in Social Tees care they are kept in attentive and loving foster homes. Many dogs are rescued from TN due to the lack of Spay and Neuter and a much smaller population of humans seeking dogs. In NYC we have a large human population which in turn means they find forever homes :)

PLEASE NOTE: This animal is not at the Social Tees office all of our dogs and cats are in foster homes while they wait to find their forever families. :) If youd like to apply to adopt this pet, please complete an adoption application at Because we are a small team and receive hundreds of applications each week, we are unable to respond to every application and every inquiry email, but we do our best. Please have patience! If your application is approved, you will for sure hear from us. If you have questions, please take a look at the Adoption and Fostering FAQs etc. on our website as all common questions are answered there. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we work to save these innocent lives!!
