Other Info: He is not a dog for a loud household environment, or for people with small children. He is a quiet dog perfect for single owner or maybe with adult children who are mellow this is not a dog that jumps licks or cuddles. He is a peaceful presence. He loves walks and can run short distances up to 2 miles. Prefers the cold in the snow over the heat because he is part husky part Chesapeake Bay retriever. He’s protective and will alert the owner of strangers approaching the house and because of his bark and eyes he is a great deterrent against ne’er-do-wells. Great for single college student who wants a companion. There’s hair involved but it’s not too bad on me sweet and will be loyal. He’s low maintenance, but really wants to be loved and is used to having a place to run (loves playing chase in the yard).
