I am introducing Luka.
His mother is a Siberian Husky x Maremma (bother her parents were purebred. His mother is the colour and markings of the Sibe Husky and the stance of a Maremma.
Luka's dad is a Mastiff from next door to the original owner of Luka.
I have had Luka from 9 weeks of age and he is currently 10 weeks old now.
He is an adorable little man who we love dearly. he sleeps with us on our waterbed. Which he just loves. We are training him not on our pillows though, only the doona cover area.
He is a joy to train, extremely intelligent. 99 percent of the time we can get him outside on command of toilet. He is fussy about where he does his stuff. Never does it on our paths. Thank god
He seems to have wonderful recall except when he gets a little distracted and recall takes a little bit longer. I do however only walk him with a leash and not off. We live out in the bush at present which is lucky as we can walk him without the worry of him not having his full vaccinations yet. No other dogs around to pass on diseases. He is due for his second shot now.
Luka we believe will be a big dog as at 9 weeks of age he was 9.4 kilo (20.72 pounds).
He loves to chew and dig. Can be destructive so we are trying to curb that in the direction of his toys. Not our furnishings.
We are on The Husky owners forum but I put us here also so we might have a chance to meet people from Australia.
Thanks for having us
