Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted November 2, 2015
I first got Cody as a puppy from a shelter who didn't think they could afford to keep him. He was a scrawny little puppy who looked kind of like a wolf and had about as much energy. Cody was a bit tough to train, most likely because of the husky in him, but after some hard work he did very well. Being part husky also made him very loyal. Whenever I would leave, he would sit at the door waiting for me to come back. No matter how bad my day was, I would always smile when seeing him peeking out the window as I pulled into the driveway. There is nothing quite like a steady canine companion. While I'm sure the training had a bit to do with his personality, I think the combination of breeds had a huge impact on his temperament. While he would not make a good guard dog, his friendly nature caused countless strangers to cross the street and pet him during walks. If you're looking for a dog to help you meet people, then this breed is right for you!
