Husky, 10 monts, Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Courtesy Partnership Listing With Medfield Animal Shelter
STORM is a very handsome ( big boy with high energy) 10-month-old Neutered Husky, Up to date on all shots, heart worm negative. His family surrendered him because he requires too much exercise and he kept escaping (digging and jumping) from their fenced yard. He requires a fence that is 6 feet. He's a young, active dog with very little training and will need a person or family that will take him for several long walks daily or run with him. A home where he is not home alone for 8 hrs.

The right home for him will give him lots of exercise and take him to formal obedience training. He is not a dog for a first-time owner. He is mouthy and since he isn't a puppy, this is a behavior that our trainer, Kate Brady, is working hard to extinguish, but his new owner will need to work on it to get him to stop completely. We were told he can be protective of his food and toys with younger children so must go to a home with kids 12 and older. He enjoys playing with other dogs but likes to jump on them and tumble around, so he need a canine companion that enjoys that style of play. He has had several play dates with a pair of Huskies and a Newfoundland and is very happy afterward since it is a great way for him to get rid of some excess energy. In his first home, he lived with older children. He cannot go to a home with cats.

We give priority to people that fill out our adoption application, so if you are interested in meeting Storm, that is the first step. E-mail inquiries about a dog are not considered an application.

Good with dogs, However prefers to be the only dog, but is attending doggie play day. No cats.

Babs is a gorgeous pocket pittie at just 35 pounds. She absolutely loves people and her most favorite activity is cuddling on the couch. She enjoys going for walks, playing fetch and chasing balls. Babs continues to work on leash walking and has had training at Happy K9. The great folks there will be providing post adoption assistance for this great gal as they are truly invested in her success! Babs would make a wonderful companion for an active family! She is perfectly crate trained and house broken. Now she just needs a family to call her own!
