Bixby is a small Husky cross, slight of bone and built for speed. He is about 2 years old, and was found wandering near Antigua, dirty, thin, and wearing a tattered harness. He had clearly been smacked around a good bit, and was very wary and leery of hands or petting.
No one ever claimed him, so we had him neutered, vaccinated and wormed. He calmed down with kind treatment and is an affectionate guy nowadays. He has filled in over the past few months and is sleek and very beautiful.
Bixby is a really lovely guy. He has a very good recall already, and to our surprise, is not a runner (as many husky-types are!). He is very connected to his humans on walks, and happily comes back for a treat when called. He does well with most other dogs. He will play with some, but is more interested in killing the ‘squeak’ in any squeaky toy he finds. He loves to chase a ball, but needs work on the second have of the game-bringing the ball back to you!
We think he would do best in an adult home or with teenagers. He is affectionate and loves pets from people once he trusts you. He only takes only a few minutes to be okay with people and is quite the leaner and cuddler with his trusted peeps. He has some basic obedience and is well crate trained.
He’ll need some work on learning the difference between outside and inside, as he does lift a leg and mark on things. We will be happy to support adopters to train this.
