WICC Pet of the Week

WICC Pet of the Week

This beautiful, blue eyed Alaskan husky is Kody. At only 8 months old, Kody is a bundle of energy and still has a lot of learning to do.  He will do best in a home with Husky experience and may be a sled pull/urban mushing candidate. If you are looking for a hiking buddy, training pal, and possibly even a dog sports partner, this guy might be just who you’re looking for. Kody, is a social but rough rough player with other dogs. If there is another dog in the home, it would be ideal if the other dog is just as energetic and playful as Kody. He needs a home with no cats or small dogs. Kody is looking for a family that can keep up with his energy and his smarts. He thrives in a structured environment with people that provide him plenty of mental stimulation as well as exercise. Due to typical husky behaviors, he will do better with children over 10.
