Rocco & Lad
2 For 1 ADOPTION FEE! (A generous person has paid $150 towards their adoption fee!)
SEEKING EXPERIENCED DOG OWNERS! NO CHILDREN!
Rooco (brown husky) and Lad (black husky) were born in 2013 in Igloolik, Nunavut which leaves them at 7 years old.
They were neutered and house trained. Their initial training commands included ‘sit’, ‘lie down’, ‘wait’ and ‘come’. At feed time they were taught to ‘sit’ and ‘wait’ until given the command ‘OK’, for them to eat.
With origins in Nunavut, and having been hardened to the cold immediately, they are very hardy dogs and have never had any health problems. They have been regularly vaccinated and treated for parasites. They have been well socialized with other dogs, but it is normal for there to be ‘rough’ play at the outset of meeting a new acquaintance. These dogs both have very dominant personalities so there will need to be some training or precautions in that sense, we will be sending these dogs to a home with no small children.
Rocco and Lad have fantastic personalities. They are happy, energetic dogs and need an abundance of exercise and effective training/discipline. Rocco and Lad love to pull. They have done a lot of skijoring over the years and in the later years they have been used wintertime to transport water to a barn for horses. They get a lot of satisfaction out of pulling, and exhibit best behavior when they have a purpose, and ample opportunity to expend energy.
Rocco and Lad would make excellent companions for an outdoor enthusiast who has an interest and understanding of husky-like breeds (as they are not purebred), and who is motivated to implement effective training/discipline.
