So, I finally got a chance to sit down with him this evening. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say one of his grandparents was coyote mix. It’s his tail that gives it away. He’s definitely not full blood Siberian as she said. I have a rule against that for a reason, but since that woman drove a few hours to get him here, I’ll give him a chance.
I let her know that he’s growled at the boys a few times already. He nips and he goes straight to the shelter. The boys know how to ease into a new husky. No handling him without me.
I asked about food aggression too. She said with other animals but not humans. That also turned out to not be the case. I reached down and pet his side while he was eating earlier and he started growling. I didn’t stop, he eventually looked up at me and I let him know who’s boss. In her defense, she only had him a short while. There’s surely a lot she didn’t know.
