Quirky, interesting, affectionate. Everyday yields something new. Both dogs are looking for a home where they can be given the centre of attention. They are bonded, and littermates; and don’t cope well without each other. They balance each other out well and are both good at keeping each other in check. They love being inside and around humans and love little snacks here and there.
They are currently walked on halti’s, and being the age they are, get excited to start off but settle into the walk. When they’re on lead, they’re both always excited to see other dogs. Skylah is more placid than Simba, and we know they’d benefit from more opportunities to socialise and learn to ‘dog’ with other four-legged dog friends.
Both Skylah and Simba are able to sit, shake and jump on command, and comparing the two dogs, Simba is better behaved and more likely to react to a command then Skylah. We know they’d love more time spent on their training, but never fear, both are happy to deliver a bit of ‘husky-tude’ when the occasion calls for it.
Simba is generally pretty quiet unless he’s nagging Skylah to play, and is the more relaxed of the two. He’s a very affectionate dog and loves people and attention. He is very cuddly and will try to sit on your lap and sleep on your bed often, and is very obedient. Simba has been make dog reactive, however he has worked hard on this and has improved enormously.
Skylah is quite chatty and talkative and the more playful of the two. Skylah is always trying new things and surprising you with her unique personality. She is very energetic and loves her walks. She’ll also steal a snack off the bench if she’s given the chance! Skylah is very shy when she meets new people – she has improved a lot, but her new people will need to work on her with this.
As a bonded pair and littermates, they love each other to bits and bounce of each other’s energy – they’re great company for each other. Both dogs get very excited to see their people come home and want to spend all their time with you. They’re also good in the car, don’t care about storms, and they love to sleep on their human’s bed or at the foot of the bed.
These two would suit a young growing family, as they love to play, are great with kids and love attention. They’ve got high energy levels (they are, after all, only 2.5 years old) and we know they need a very secure yard, with no socks on the clothesline, and the usual ‘no pocket pets or cats’ rule.
