Biography

Koda is a 3 year old Alaskan Malamute/ Siberian Husky Mix. We originally purchased Koda from a Husky Dog Breeder in North Carolina and just recently brought him to San Diego Area when we moved here in December 23. He has been loved and very well cared for, he has always been treated like one of our own kids. Koda has also been feed the very best of meats (raw and frozen), a variety of kibble, and always bones or doggy treats. He has a very strong stomach and can eat anything. He has been micro-chipped but never fixed, his vaccinations have always been up to date but the his last rabies shot expired this last November.

Koda has been trained to be both Indoor and Outdoor, he sleeps with us at night next to the bed and has option to hang out in yard during the day. Koda also knows how to use doggy doors to go between outside and inside. Koda has a strong Dominant personality with other dogs, he is an Alpha Dog and has been the leader to our other 4 huskys we had in North Carolina. Some caution must be taken when introducing him to another dog, especially males not fixed.. he has a great demeanor around other dogs but will react with any other dominant challenging Males if they choose to fight.

Koda would not do good with Cats, he has a strong prey drive for small animals due to being a husky breed, he will pull on leash if he see's a squirrel or rabbit run, sometimes he will want to chase birds too. Koda is a super good protection dog for your home, he has proven himself as a strong dog to protect the house and our vehicle to outside strangers.

He has been raised around large groups of people and socialized at dog parks on a weekly basis when he was younger, less than 1 year old. He also is our protector of our toddler (baby girl of 5 months) and will nudge at anyone he does not know or suspects we can't trust if they try and get close to her (especially while we walk him with our baby in a stroller). It should also be noted that Koda is the type of male Alpha dog who can also train wild and out-of-control dogs to be calmer and obedient; he is super good at teaching them rules and respecting other dogs.

Koda does not like loud noises (lawnmowers, motorcycles) or kids screaming and running next to him; he will bark at them and chase.. it is Koda's personality of inner protection mode that will cause him to react to those types of noises or actions by kids.

Overall, he is an outstanding loving dog to someone who has experience with a Husky and would like a companion dog for a female dog or family of children at home.
