Fostering Locally in Rhode Island
Husky lovers…here’s a good looking boy!
Recently arrived from Tennessee, he’s currently fostering with a bunch of husky ladies! His foster mom is a super experienced husky person and can give you tons of information on Ricky and any questions you may have about breed.
Ricky has potential to be good dog - he just has not had the guidance that he needed - but he does now.
For now, it seems this boy needs some work on his social skills - he’s fine with submissive dogs - he would do fine as an only dog and perhaps might be best so you can focus on him. He’s an overgrown puppy whose family did not do much with him in terms of boundaries, basic training, & etc.
He is a definite NO with cats, chickens, or any type of prey/small animals - we believe he was an outside dog before his family in Memphis took him in - they had chickens so they found out rather quickly it wasn’t a good match, much to the chickens’ dismay.
Small children is a no - for this guy he is still pretty mouthy/jumpy- he’s been around children but we think living with them will not be ideal and may stress Ricky out.
Ricky is a work in progress - we are more than happy to support you & Ricky with any behavior modification / training he may need to transition into his new home.
Looking for an owner with husky/ working breed experience - huskies have their own quirks and for this guy, it will be best for someone who knows his tricks!!

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
