Chewbacca (Reserved)

This lovely dog is Chewbacca. He is a husky/Akita cross and is about 9 months to a year old. He is a friendly dog, always delighted to see anyone coming to talk to him, walk him, or give him any attention. He is good on the lead and loves his walks. He may still have a little growing to do so will be a big dog. He is energetic and playful, and also affectionate and alert. He will possibly have protective instincts from the Akita. He loves humans and seems good with other dogs. He will need to go to a home with someone who has experience of this type of breed and who understands their exercise requirements, plus understands their protective and loyal instincts. He will need quite a vigorous exercise schedule every day for at least a couple of hours…long, brisk walks, jogs, playing. It would also be best if there is someone in the home for a good part of the day.  Chewbacca is neutered, vaccinated and chipped. He is living at our shelter where you can meet him between 1-3pm, Monday to Saturday, outside these times by appointment.
