Consistent with her breed, Fresca, a nine-year-old Siberian husky, is very energetic and loves to run, thus she cannot be off a lead. While we have not been able to attend to her as much recently, she has always enjoyed runs with us (up to about five miles), particularly in the colder weather. While she can be energetic, she is settling down a bit as she gets older and spends plenty of time lounging around the house or watching the world go by from the front porch. She is able to listen to commands and follows them most of the time, though she can be stubborn when she wants to be. She rarely barks except when she is trying to get our attention to be let outside or back inside. She is housebroken and has rarely had any accidents in the house, except for the rare occasion when we have allowed her to have people food and it has ended up not agreeing with her. Being a husky, she has a lot of fur and sheds year round, with particularly heavy times of shedding at the beginning and end of summer; she needs to be brushed and/or groomed regularly to control the volume of fur that is shed. We have taken her to various dog parks on occasion and she gets along well with other dogs that she has been “introduced” to, but she will not back down from an aggressive dog if she encounters one. Fresca has not had any incidents with people, particularly small children; however, new owners would ideally be a family without young children. Additionally, she is typically a good passenger in the car.
