Is Nanuk spayed or neutered? yes
Is Nanuk up to date on vaccinations? yes
Why the animal is being rehomed: He has made a lot of progress in his training and obedience but we have not been able to break his separation and kennel anxiety issues. We cannot give him the constant attention that he needs. When he is kenneled for more than 10 mins he tries to break out and will break kennels and chew through anything uses to tie the kennel door shut. He will go potty in the house and destroy garbages when he escapes. He also is a bit rough with our 8 year old Husky.

What should the next family should know about Nanuk: Nanuk needs a home where he will have someone around at all times. He is a great dog when we are home but he cannot be kenneled. He responds to this very poorly to it. He needs lots of exercise and attention and is very high strung. We have worked with him over the three years but cannot handle him breaking his cages when we are gone. He will escape in any way possible in as little as 15 mins with the door zip tied on. We love him very much and gave him a lot of chances but cannot handle the stress on ourselves and our other pup any longer.
