Archie is a sweet dog that is about 5 years old and has calmed down substantially since he was a puppy. We adopted him when he was 6months old. He is well house trained, updated vaccines and no health issues. He loves his crate, though we leave him uncrated at night as he comes and wakes us up if he needs to go out. He needs plenty of exercise. He does not do the talking that most huskies do, and doesn't bark often. He is good with our two cats and loves other dogs. Our only issue is that we have a toddler, and recently he has started growling at him whenever our toddler approaches. He has never bitten anyone, but we are not willing to take the chance, and we have another baby on the way.
