Hi, my name is River, I am a 7-year-old husky mix and have been at Free Spirit for a few years now waiting for a new home. People tell me I am very beautiful with a unique look and color. I love to go for car rides where I am very well behaved and enjoy long hikes in the woods. Another favorite activity of mine is playing fetch and exploring in my yard. I know all my commands and take treats nicely. My dream is to have a fenced-in yard in a quiet, low stress home. I do not like cats but I may be a good friend for another dog and would be happy to meet them! I like kids if they respect my boundaries and allow me to get to know them, if younger children tease me too much, I can get stressed. I am very quiet and well behaved but can have moments of anxiety when in a stressful situation, so I need a family that understands that and will work with me. If you give me a chance I will be a loving companion in your home for years to come.
This dog requires an adopter to come out to the rescue three times in order to build up trust and form a bond with this dog before going home. Please talk to your adoption coordinator regarding the behaviors we have been working with this particular dog and the training techniques we have seen improvement with. We will also need the name and number of the trainer you plan on using before they will go home.
