Adopt Casper a Black Siberian Husky dog in Carol Stream, IL (24757925)
Carol Stream, IL
Casper is a special boy. He came from an animal control as a neglect impound, and it took him a bit of time to trust his foster home. His eyes showed his wariness and we think someone used a heavy hand on him as he was very cautious about handling at 1st. He hated having his collar touched and was sensitive around his head at times. But then the most lovable thing happened-he learned that humans can be kind, and they can give unconditional love and soon we saw the change from him always looking for danger to him looking for love. His eyes sparkled again as he learned life is filled with joy and people are pretty darn nice. And boy does he love his belly rubs. We are looking for a very specific home for Casper. His forever home should be active (he is still a young guy), but ultimately calm so he can decompress and learn his new routine. We would really want another dog or 2 for him to play with and learn trust-he just loves other dogs and does better with another 1 around. We do not want kids in his home just yet-he needs to gain a routine and stability before introducing him to kids. He has an underlying sweet personality and loves his humans, but due to his past, we just want to be cautious with interactions until he learns trust in his forever home. This is a guy that is going to bond to his human and would love nothing more than to hang with them, go for walks and explore the neighborhood, then come home and play a little ball and watch TELEVISION. But he is also super smart and has learned that he can get his way if he becomes obnoxious so we need a strong confident owner that makes sure the rules are clear, concise and consistent. He craves structure and thrives in it. Casper is crate trained and potty trained. If you have a calm energy in your home and have the patience to work on gaining Casper's trust, you will be rewarded with a life time of devotion from this stunning silly boy.
