Meet Bucky "Are u my hooman?"

Born in August 2014, Bucky has a great sense of humor and is full of personality. He is well known for his tongue hanging out! Just too cute. He enjoys hiking followed by a picnic with a chicken sandwich. He LOVES car rides and visiting the nearby pet stores where all the goodies are. Bucky is a Malamute/Husky mix and would love a family of his own. He is a free spirit who responds well to pawsitive communication. He enjoys chasing and burying balls (especially squeaky balls) and really enjoys sniffing, which is very healthy.

Bucky's foster family has found that he just needs to feel secure with slow introductions to change & keep to a schedule and he flourishes. He stays home alone for 5 hours and is doing well. He settles nicely & enjoys peace & tranquility--just keep his schedule. He is an amazing boy with high predatory behavior that can spot any critter or find deer, especially at night. With cheerful redirection, he will give up the chase to stay with his human.

Bucky is always ready for a car ride, but just make sure you keep his schedule to keep him from going over his threshold. He enjoys just being where you are & hanging out. He has been receiving positive training and has learned to redirect his excitement by sitting for a treat or going to the down position for chicken sandwich bite-size treats. He has done this so much he offers sit/down on his own to make good things happen.

Bucky looks like a very tall Siberian Husky & is so inquisitive. Bucky would benefit from pawsitive reinforcement training classes (no fear, no force, no pain, no dominance) and someone with a good sense of humor. Bucky just wants to have fun, so learning how to communicate being consistent & calm works great for Bucky. He is a lover.

With so much to give, he definitely will make someone happy once he settles in and knows he's loved. He prefers to be the only pet in the home...who doesn't like to be the star of the show. He currently lives with 2 foster fur siblings but everyone has their own "space" and structure so there is no interaction.

We recommend reading, Positive Perspectives 2 - Know your Dog Train your Dog by Pat Miller. This book will open your eyes from a dogs perspective & help you communicate & train in a pawsitive manner. To know Bucky is to love Bucky. He is such a sweet boy who is searching for his furever home & hooman. Those who meet Bucky can't believe that he hasn't been adopted.
