A note from some lady - Ice was removed from a shelter where he had spent 7 weeks and was not doing well. He displayed signs of aggression while there. Since we have had him in our home there has been none of that! He road in the car for 3 hours either curled up in his bed or looking out the window. Not once did he bark even when we stopped to get gas. (If only my other Eskies would be that good!) We brought him home and discovered he must have lived in a 1 story home. He can manage 3 steps out to the back yard but has yet to walk up a flight on his own. He did go down. He had a bath and brush and never once growled or showed aggression. He has no food aggression, 1 of my Eskies pushed him out of the way of his bowl and he patiently waited until I noticed. He need to be told gentle while taking treats or give them to him open handed or risk your fingers. He is NOT a barker. Very calm but does like to play. After less than 18 hours he became a member of the pack - 4 Eskies. I have a grumpy one that growls for no reason and he doesn't pay him any attention. 3 of them play together (my old man doesn't) and do very well. Again no issues with toys even when my grump takes one from him. The shelter said he guarded toys but I believe that was just the stress of the environment. He did need to be directed to the outside twice for potty - 2 accidents in 24 hours but nothing after that. As with an dog you'll need to reinforce house training for the first few days. He is doing great with dogs ranging in size from 45 lbs to 22 lbs - all Eskies. The shelter told me he did was not appreciative of a large energetic dog. Ice will make a fantastic companion! He has not been kid tested but previous owner said he was around a 15 year old occasionally. The shelter guessed 7 years old but intake paperwork says 4 an he is 34lbs (could stand to shed a few pounds).
