Siberian Husky
White / Cream
Name: Xander 

Sex: Male

Color: Piebald, cream and brown 

Eye Color: Blue 

Birthday: 3/23/2016

Weight: 70 lbs

Large Dog Friendly: Depends on the other dog

Small Dog Friendly: Probably not

Cat Friendly: No

Crate Trained: Yes

Housebroken: Yes

Energy Level: Low to moderate. 

Reaction to New People: Shy at first but once he knows them very excited and loving. 

Kid Friendly: Would do best living in an adult only home.

Training: Knows sit, shake and lay down. 

Grooming Needs: Normal husky coat which will require regular thorough brushing. You should aim for once a week or so, and more when he is blowing his coat, typically twice a year.

Fence: Xander loves being outside, is strong and has a high prey drive. He would do better in a household with a fence but foster home currently has him in a tie-out. 

Solo or Siblings: He lived with a dog for most of his life in his prior household, but we have figured out he needs slow and well controlled introductions. At this time we think he would be best as a only dog. 

From the Foster: Xander is a big marshmallow. He is the sweetest, calm, laid-back big goof! He has a lot of love and affection to offer anyone willing to give him a chance. He is old enough to have left the majority of those youthful mischievous years behind, but young enough to still have a lot of spunk and character. He is a velcro dog that loves his people and LOVES to cuddle. 

Xander initially came to Adopt A Husky and was adopted as a puppy. He recently returned to rescue after his family could no longer care for him. This has been an adjustment for Xander and it does take him a short time to fully warm up, but once he does you will be showered with affection. 

Xander also lived with a dog in his prior home but we have discovered he needs very slow and well controlled introductions. We have begun working with a trainer to help build his confidence.

 He loves to play and has a low "woo woo woo when he gets excited. He loves to be outside and is a good walker except when he sees a critter nearby. He also really enjoys a good game of fetch!
