Sage is a Husky and Australian shepherd mix who is so pretty he can stop traffic. He’s ~60 lbs, and has ample soft white, black, and champagne colorings. His thick black eye-liner makes his blue eyes pop-out.
Don’t be alarmed that his good looks are intimidating — the tip of Sage’s tongue is often peeking out, giving him a goofy relaxed look.
He is 1.5 years old, and a very active dog. Multiple brisk walks a day are needed to exercise his body, and plenty of enrichment activities and a decompression walk to stimulate his mind.
Sage is gregarious and loves meeting other dogs! He has shown himself to be socially savvy, and has made friends with dogs young, old, and even some who were at first intimidated by his size (he lied down to be at their level).
Even though Sage loves playing with other dogs, he should be the only dog in the home and needs a home with no children under 12 years old because he has demonstrated some resource guarding. Sage has the body of an adult but the mind of a puppy. He still has some puppy tendencies, like jumping and mouthing when he gets excited or frustrated so he needs a lot of redirection to alternative behaviours.
Sage has been through a lot of changes in the past 6 months which has been stressful. Sage will need time to fully relax and decompress in a new home. A very consistent and predictable schedule will be essential for Sage’s wellbeing as he makes what we hope will be his last adjustment into a forever home. Even though Sage will need LOTS of patience while he settles into his new home, this beautiful boy has a winning personality and unlimited potential.
Sage will be placed only in a household that has breed experience or is willing to do the research and understand the needs of a typical Husky, and where he would not join a household with small children (under 12), small animals or another dog.
