This gorgeous guy is truly one of a kind! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Hunter, a 2 years old red-haired Siberian Husky from Cedar Crest, New Mexico. This stunning gentleman is good with dogs and children but hasn’t been tested with cats. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and house-trained.

Hunter’s Tale

Hunter is a cheerful, lively dog and you could never tell he had any troubles in his past! Unfortunately, he did have a hard life. His previous owners let him hop over the fence and go on his “adventures” until a car hit him on the street. Even though his hind leg was severely injured, he didn’t get any medical care. Luckily, Hunter was rescued from that terrible situation and got a second chance at life- even his leg is all better now.

He is a purebred Siberian Husky so it doesn’t come as a surprise that he has high energy levels, a lot of spirit, and a talkative nature! Hunter needs a family that could give him long daily walks and lots of love. Ideally, his adopter would have previous experience with the breed and understand their unique needs. In addition to being energetic and affectionate, Hunter is also a smart boy. He does well on a leash, doesn’t mind spending the night in the crate, and he’s mostly housetrained.

Hunter loves kids and gets along great with other dogs. In fact, his rescuers recommend that he goes to a family that has another dog in the household. A four-legged friend could keep him busy and entertained throughout the day! He has not been tested around cats or other small pets. Also, if you want to adopt him, you have to have a fence that’s at least 5 ft high- or this Houdini will jump right over it.

If you think that your family is the right match for Hunter, contact Siberian Husky Rescue of New Mexico, Inc. for more information.
