About Memphis

Adoption Fee: 150
Siberian Husky / Akita
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Memphis is an adorable Huskita (Husky/Akita) mix that is an absolute ham. He is an affectionate boy that loves to be with you, go on adventures or play with his toys. He absolutely adores my female Akita and they are best friends. She and him play to no end while outside. Inside, Memphis is calm and quiet unless you are entertaining him. He loves to sleep on the floor, dog beds, your bed or maybe even the couch (if you allow it). He comes from Memphis Animal Services where he was picked up as a stray and never reclaimed. He came to me heartworm positive but I have treated him with doxycycline to kill off the bacteria and then he had 2 immiticide injections to kill the worms. He was a very low-positive and never acted symptomatic but I felt it was best to get him treated soon due to the resistant strain of heartworms coming from the Midwest. He is heartworm free now and is ready to find his forever home. He is housebroken, house and crate trained, leash trained and is microchipped. The Husky side of him is a talker and he will arrooroo to you if he is happy or wants attention and you aren't giving him enough. He would absolutely love an active doggy friend, male or female, although he seems more playful around the females. Memphis loves all people and is not overly hyper around young kids; my nephew and niece are 7 and 5 years old respectively. He has not been around newborns or infants but does not have an aggressive bone in his body, he loves to give kisses and is gentle. Cats and small dogs are also an unknown and he hasn't been exposed to them here. Memphis is looking for an active family that loves to spend time outdoors, he needs a 6' fence to be able to safely play in his yard without worries. Any questions you may have please feel free to ask away or to set up a time for us to meet you and the family.
