Shadow was surrendered to the shelter by his previous owner as he would go after the cats, chickens, and other small animals in the home and the owner was unable to rectify the situation.
He does best uncrated when left alone as he has shown signs of anxiety when left in the crate. Shadow, like the vast majority of Huskies, prefers to be in the company of his humans. Wherever they are is where he wants to be. As long as there is no food on the counter or other small items lying around that may be mistaken for toys, he is not mischievous.
Shadow gets very excited and vocal when it is meal time. He will sit for a treat and also knows the “down” command. Rewarding his food motivation makes training him in other commands that much easier. With or without a treat he listens well when provided instruction or correction.
He is friendly and outgoing, with a wonderful balance in his disposition - having his energetic moments as well as a mellow, easy-going side. He enjoys playing with toys, tossing and shaking them about, entertaining himself until he gets bored or finds something or someone else to play with. Shadow also likes to catch or go after toys as they are tossed to him. He gets along with other dogs and enjoys playtime with his fur-friends, instigating play by being vocal, gently grabbing a leg or tail with his mouth, or using his paws giving a playful swat. He is happy running around and wrestling with them.
Shadow will give those he meets butterfly kisses and an occasional nuzzle to show his affection. He seeks the attention he was not previously given and just absorbs the affection he receives from his humans. He just wants to be a member of any family. Shadow is getting better at walking properly on lead, not pulling too much. He is by your side in a second when he sees the leash come out; always ready to go with you if given the opportunity. He enjoys riding in the car, calmly lying down awaiting arrival at his destination and behaves well wherever he goes.
