The lankiest boy in the house, I got those long legs so that I can chase rabbits and maybe chase a few hearts too
Maddox is a gentle boy who readily accepts pats and cuddles. He is super playful with other young dogs. He walks with encouragement on loose lead ignoring other dogs and cars. He enjoys being patted by walkers. Walkers say: "Very sweet boy and walked well", "Started off slowly, came out of his shell at the end. If he stops just wait him out!", "Lovely, smart dog!", "Very sweet and food motivated - responds to affection." "A bit scared of the school bus but otherwise fine with vehicles”, “Sweet but a bit skittish. Hides from cars, lots of treats for bribery. Lovely dog”, “Very relaxed, on occasion stopped in the middle of road and didn’t want to move. Loves treats, very good boy”
Maddox is one of the many huskies that we rescued from a hoarding situation. They were living in filth and had to fight for the small amounts of food that were thrown to them. The dogs have had little or no social engagement with humans and knew nothing about a routine, living in a house or walking on lead. They all need patient experienced owners.
Maddox like all huskies has an undercoat that sheds seasonally and needs lots of brushing. He weighs 16kg and is still underweight.
