Mitch is a 6-year-old shepherd-husky mix that loves cuddles, being outside, and car rides. He is like one giant teddy bear, weighing in around 80 lbs. Everyone who meets Mitch falls in love with him and comments on how loving he is. Our favorite thing about Mitch, other than his adorable face, is the fact that he prances when he walks. While he typically has a calm demeanor, Mitch can be very playful and he likes playing with tennis balls the most.

While we don’t know anything about his past, it does seem like he was in a home before. Mitch is house trained, crate trained, and knows a couple basic commands. Mitch is very good at letting us know when he needs to go outside, and has had no accidents. When left alone, we do crate him, which he seems to do very well with and he will just nap. He enjoys going on long walks, but could benefit from some more leash manners. Since he is a big dog, he is very strong when he wants to be and squirrels tend to excite him. Mitch is also not much of a barker and has only done so on a couple of occasions. One of these instances was when trying to take a rawhide from him, but he doesn’t seem to show food aggression with his regular food. Nevertheless, he was receptive to discipline in this situation.

Due to all his fur, he does shed, but it doesn’t seem to be very much. With all that fur and the colder weather, Mitch does prefer to be outside, so we believe he would do best in a home with a yard. Mitch seems to do well with other dogs, but he is not good with cats and would not put him with young children (under 10 years old). Overall, Mitch is a very affectionate dog, who loves people, and is in need of a loving forever home. If you would like to meet this dog please call Teri at 630-897-7454. The adoption fee is $225.
