******TRIALLING A NEW HOME ********************

Are you after a big and loveable cuddly bear who is just a bit of a dufus? If so, please meet Kovu our 4 and a half year Malamute x Husky who would love to fill that pooch sized hole in your life with affection, smiles and walkies. 

Kovu is a total sweetheart who gets on well with other dogs, kids and people of all sizes and ages. He gets excited when its walk time and will pull at first to sniff anything and everything worth sniffing but once his initial excitement is over he sets a good pace for an enjoyable and pleasant walk.

Kovu loves to be pampered and will lean on you for a brush (which will inevitably turn into cuddle time!) He can be a little clumsy at times and will provide you with laughs at his goofy antics. 

This bouncy boy may suit a home with older, bigger kids or teenagers as he is less likely to knock them over accidentally. He may also suit someone who works from home or semi retirees who will spend lots of time with him. He won't suit a home where he is left alone all day as he is far too people-focused to be isolated. 

Kovu will need good fencing to keep him safe when you go out. If you have an existing medium to large sized dog he would enjoy having a canine sibling to hang out with - he's not a big player but enjoys canine company. We are unsure if he's had any interactions with cats, small dogs, chickens or pocket pets. 

Kovu is treat focused and is an absolute gentleman taking offered treats - he knows how to sit and shake. He will shove his nose in the treat-bag as a hint for more and can have selective hearing with commands at times! He is a good mix of energetic and lazy lounge-lizard - he'll plonk himself down for a nap and keep a curious eye on you as you go about your household chores or gardening. 

If you are looking for an affectionate, cuddly bear who is as soft as velvet and has a quirky and loveable character then Kovu would love to hear from you. 

Medical notes

Kovu had fly-bitten ears when he came to us - these are still healing and hopefully the hair will start to regrow on his ears soon.
