Our gorgeous Koda is a two time visitor in our Rescue. His first owner left him at the New York Animal Control Shelter because his young family was ill-prepared to manage the natural behavior of a young puppy. Needless to say, Huskies are not everyone’s cup of tea.

Koda lived harmoniously with older kids, but the busy family was not providing adequate training, exercise or socialization. The NYC Shelter sent Koda to us as the COVID Pandemic was winding down.

Koda adapted to our routine easily, and was quickly placed in a home, but sadly, placement fell through due to unexpected illness. Now two years old, Koda is ready for his Act Three. 

Koda is a Siberian Husky, with stunning black and white coloring and icy blue eyes.  He is a medium sized dog, at a lean 43 pounds.  He has the breed standard double coat that will moult a few times a year.  

Koda has an outgoing personality and responds to new people and situations with curiosity. He warms to people quickly and becomes extremely affectionate.  He relishes human touch, and willingly leans into his person for ear scratches. Koda is not as frantically high energy as some Huskies we have known, but as a two year old youngster, he does need a fair amount of exercise and mental stimulation.  

Koda is a smart boy and has already passed many of the Canine Good Citizenship tests. He is a breeze to train, and loves the work, so motivated adopters could easily take him the rest of the way to CGC certification. Obedience work will go a long way to keep him challenged, calm and balanced.

Koda would thrive in an active adult household, keen to the needs of a rescue dog. He would like to be in the forefront of the family and invited to participate in family activities. Koda would be the ideal running or hiking companion. He is an excellent traveler and would love to join his folks on camping or road trips. He is not a dog to be relegated to the backyard, where boredom and frustration can set in, and create unpleasant consequences.

Koda could easily join a multi-dog home: he enjoys play and is pretty sociable. He is not the best candidate for toddlers or cats, but a well adjusted, outgoing dog would suit him.

Koda has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained.  Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home.  He is in optimal health, and has been neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings. He has been dewormed, and microchipped.
