💙 HOLDEN 💙
Shepherd/Husky blend, 9 weeks old, 17 lbs.
Holden is independent and stubborn, and not one to be held or cuddled much. He's a pup with places to explore and dogs to play with, though he will make his way to his people to ask for attention and love when he's ready for it. Holden is a very sweet boy through and through.
A confident rascal, Holden gets along with everyone he meets. He's smart and likes to push his boundaries to see what he can get away with. 😉The boy doesn’t appreciate being told "no". 😆 What he does appreciate is having things to chew on.
Holden will "talk" and growl as he plays, even if he's alone. 😆 He also likes to play with the big dogs, in his foster home, and wrestle with his siblings. He's the instigator of the group, constantly trying to get his brothers, or other dogs in the home, to play with him. As confident as he can be, he is somewhat wary of new things and looks for assurance from his person.
Holden does enjoy curling up next to his people for a nap after a nice, long play session. Pretty much the cutest thing ever!
POTTY TRAINING: A definite work in progress! Holden will “go” when taken outside, and has had the occasional accident inside. He’s still very much a baby. With an attentive and patient forever family, Holden will reach this important milestone in no time.
CRATE TRAINING: Adorable Holden sleeps in a kennel each night for approximately 4 hours, then a potty break in the middle of the night. During the day, he is comfortable in a kennel for approximately 4 hours. He does whine when you placed in his kennel, though, will settle down
after a bit. He is getting better every day!
Holden is a super sweet and independent little man, who likes to do his own thing. Whoever he bonds to, he shows such intense love to and definitely let's you know he's your dude. He's just awesome!
All puppies require extra time and patience, as well as solid supervision to help them reach expected milestones, like potty training and crate training. Each has their own personality that their forever family will want to pay close attention to as they “train” together to develop a well adjusted adult in the future.
