Spirit 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 know nothing about a routine, living in a house or walking on lead. They all need patient experienced owners who are ready for sleepless nights, chewing and escapism.
Spirit is very playful and puppy like amongst his mates. He is still a bit scared to walk on lead. He walks with encouragement and at a very slow pace. Walkers say: "Hesitant to start but walked well once interested in surroundings. Likes the long grass.", "He is very timid. Seems not very interested in walking far from shelter", "He is friendly but lazy(scared) for walk. He prefers to be taken in arms (like a baby!), "Be patient with him. He will decide when/where he goes. Beautiful dog". Spirit like all huskies has an undercoat that sheds seasonally and needs lots of brushing. He weighs 11.4kg and is still underweight. He has a bit of growing to do.
