Meet Bucky Jack
BACKGROUND: Bucky came to the rescue as a puppy. He has tried to live in a home with a female but it was just too exciting. He is currently living with a female malamute and a male husky/malamute mix. They co-exist nicely and respect each other "space."
PERSONALITY: Bucky is not a cuddler. He loves taking peaceful naps & is sensitive to loud sounds & needs time/space to process new things. He likes to lay on the sofa next to his human for companionship. He walks nicely on a leash, just be ready if by chance a small critter or cat crosses your path! His signature tongue likes to rest hanging outside his mouth even when he sleeps, which is so cute. Most recently, he is starting to look to his human for a treat when he sees a critter. Good boy!
Bucky works daily being "calm" to help with his impulse control & anxiety. Now when he gets excited he will go straight to the down position to work on ZEN & earn treats. We'd love for him to have a stay at home human where they can enjoy a quiet environment.
HEALTH: Bucky was diagnosed with anxiety, which explains his previous behavior. Maintaining a predictable schedule helps him feel secure. He is on anti-anxiety medication ($12 a month from Costco). Today he is able to practice everything he has previously learned without going over threshold.
LIKES: He enjoys all things outside: Napping, burying tennis balls/chew treats and being on critter patrol. He enjoys taking his time to sniff on leisure walks & hikes, which is healthy. He is always ready for a car ride.
HOME ENVIRONMENT: Bucky prefers a stay-at-home human. During COVID Bucky has been staying in the living room napping with his foster sister who is crated. Pre-COVID, Bucky stayed home alone for 5-6 hours in a (4x4 & height 54 inches) kennel where he can stand and move around. Crates feel a bit too claustrophobic for this boy.
