Barlow is a 5-6 y.o., 76 pound neutered male Husky Mix. ***We are located in the south suburbs of Chicago and ask for adopters to live within a 2 hour radius of the Chicagoland area.*** Hi everyone, I'm Barlow. I'm a 5-6 year old Husky who recently finished heartworm treatment and I'm looking forward to finding my home! Here's my backstory: I was picked up stray by local animal control & unclaimed. After testing positive for heartworm, I went into foster care to get treatment. When I first arrived, I was under-socialized, a little scared & nervous. I was super food motivated, to the point of fixating on food and trying to snatch it off counters. My foster mom worked diligently to show me that there was enough food for everyone and that I did not need to guard and fixate on my food so much. I've come a long way! For this reason, though, my perfect home would have no kids or older kids only - (age 12+) because I WILL still snatch food out of small children's hands. I've been fostered with other dogs (including another Husky) and cats. I am not super playful but do enjoy a romp around the yard with my foster brothers. On the Husky Crazy Scale (if you know you know) I am only about a 4 out of 10 - not super vocal and I'm quiet in my crate. I am housebroken and enjoy chewing on bones and hanging out with people. I've definitely settled into a home setting and I really like going for walks, car rides, and grooming. A fenced in yard is ideal for me as I enjoy squirrel chasing. I just recently finished heartworm treatment & am on prevention. I'm neutered, dewormed, microchipped and current on vaccines. It's essential that I stay on monthly heartworm prevention to avoid ever getting heartworm again. My adoption fee is $350. Questions? Email my foster mom directly at [email protected] You must complete and submit an adoption application before meeting Barlow. The application serves as a basis for a conversation. Interested in meeting me? Go to heathersfosterdogs.org. Using the menu at the top of the page, click on Adoption Application. Submit your completed application & you will be contacted. If you have another dog we will set up a meet and greet in your yard to make sure everyone likes each other.
