Chiquis is a 5 year old Alaskan Husky that was bred at home. He is being surrendered into the center due to personal problems. There are no known health injuries or concerns.

She lived with her mother and father and was relaxed and gentle. Behavior is unknown with cats. There is no known history of her biting another animal or person.
Chiquis can bark too much when left alone. You can touch her food bowl while she is eating, and take treats, objects and toys away from her. She is friendly with baths and having her coat brushed; behavior is unknown when nails are being trimmed. When unfamiliar people approach you or the home she isn’t bothered.
Chiquis is described as being friendly with a high activity level that would do best in a big home. She enjoys running and playing chase. She was mostly kept indoors and slept on the carpet and ate both wet and dry food. She is house trained and never has accidents within the home. When left alone in the home or outdoors she is well behaved. She has been crate trained but doesn’t do well. She knows such commands as “sit” and “come”. For exercise she goes running and pulls lightly. Usually she will potty on the grave or dirt.
According to Chiquis’s previous owner, Chiquis lived with her mother and father and was relaxed and gentle.
7/8-7/13: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Chiquis is very nervous. She is tolerant of the other dog, displaying a low body and tucked tail as he greets her. She spends most of her time avoiding the other dog and wandering in the pen.
SAFER: AVERAGE HOME:
Chiquis previously lived with adults and children ages 12-14 years old. The owner stated Chiquis is friendly and gentle when playing with strangers, adults and children. The owner mentioned Chiquis lived with her parents and was relaxed and gentle towards them. The owner describes Chiquis as friendly with a high activity level, house trained and well behaved when home alone.
During SAFER Chiquis came into the assessment room a bit shy, she was friendly and social towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Chiquis was a bit nervous during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Chiquis was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Chiquis appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter and we recommend a slow introduction.
