About LEO

Siberian Husky
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

***NEEDS FOSTER or FOREVER HOME*** Over 1.5 years in Boise boarding kennels Almost 3-year-old LEO is a gorgeous, healthy, sweet, very cuddly husky who found himself homeless but was lucky to be given shelter by Emerald Street Kennels, Boise. He is now looking for a foster or forever home. On his walks with volunteers, LEO may react to other dogs, and he has not done well with farm animals. He does go on pack runs with other dogs a few times per week. LEO does well around elementary-aged children and toddlers but occasionally resource guards. LEO is curious and seems to want to investigate or play with anything that moves and some things that do not. Bees, grasshoppers, and field mice excite him, but so did a plastic bottle and a paper cup! LEO understands 'come here' when spoken in a friendly, gentle manner and expects to be petted afterward. He knows 'sit' and 'shake/paw'. He is very food/treat-motivated and a quick learner. LEO has a gentle mouth when taking treats. When we stopped to sit on the grass, he stayed very close to the handler. He is a kisser if you let him. He will rest his head on your lap too. He prefers soft stuffed animal toys to typical ball and rope toys. LEO showed very little interest in a ball until a treat was stuck inside of it. It took him about two minutes on two different attempts to get the treat out of the ball. He would be a good dog for an adult-only family without other dogs where one person works from home most of the time and who is willing to be the leader that LEO needs.
