Plenty of Pets
Timber is a one-year-old Siberian Husky who weighs 65 pounds.
He’s house-trained and crate trained, does well on leash and loves to go for walks. He gets along with other dogs outside, but not inside the home. He can also be possessive of objects he thinks he should have. These objects can be anything he finds around the home. He is learning to trade these things for a treat or a toy, but he will still try to keep the object and nip at people, so he needs continued training in this area.
Timber loves everyone he meets and doesn’t mind a belly rub. He has some separation anxiety and is best crated when left alone. Long periods of alone time are not recommended for Timber.
Timber is a talker, and responds best to a calm tone and positive reinforcement.
He needs a home with no young children, cats, or other dogs.
