Klondike walked into our lives and knocked our socks off. This majestic three year old White Siberian Husky/Samoyed is a stunning, statuesque dog. He came to us from a rural animal control facility, where the dog officer had been caring for him after picking him up as a stray.

Klondike has all the Husky charm that breed enthusiasts clamor for, but not the frantic, "I'm gonna make a sucker outta you," vibe that gets the best of inexperienced Husky owners. His temperament skews a bit more towards Samoyed breed standard.  Klondike has a laid back, aloof personality, and he seems just as happy to explore the woods at his handler's side, as he would nap by the fire.

Klondike has been around many other dogs, but tends to prefer a quiet environment, with perhaps, one or two laid back dogs. He is extremely friendly to people, and does best with a slow approach that allows him time to warm up to his own pace. In the dog pack, Klondike has a neutral vibe, and tends to get along with most dogs that approach him in a relaxed, friendly manner. However, he's not the type to back down to an unruly or ill-mannered dog who pushes his boundaries, and tries to get the best of him.

Klondike would be a great addition to a quiet home: a single, couple, or family with older kids, who have some significant dog experience. Huskies are not the best choices for novice dog owners, although Klondike is extremely easy to handle, and would make an excellent companion for another, mellow dog. He is a medium energy dog, and although he requires a couple if brisk leash walks each day, he is not as high energy as most Huskies we have known.

Klondike is in good health and has been neutered. He has a lean physique at 60 pounds, and could stand to gain a few pounds through quality protein, grain free kibble, rich in nutrients and omega fats. He was treated for a bout of Lyme disease, which he contracted during his rambling days, but has gone through his course of antibiotics and has gotten past it.  His coat of been ravaged by free dermatitis, which is now treated, and healing nicely. He is neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and is heartworm negative.
