Ivan loves people. He enjoys playing with other dogs, is polite and quiet in his kennel, and spends each day being a good boy but what makes him happy is people. He doesn't demand constant attention or need a lot of extra stimulation - hanging out with his own family would be his best possible enrichment. We have not tested him with small children but he is patient, tolerant and relaxed with everyone he meets.
Ivan is approximately 5 yrs old. His pictures do not do him justice - once you see him for yourself you will understand. He is small for a Husky mix, only 45 lb. His coat is soft and thick but not long. He greets you with those striking eyes, a happy smile, and calm demeanor.
Ivan was picked up by Bakersfield Animal Control near Sam Lunn Ball Park in March 2023. The Bakersfield Animal Care Center hoped to include him on a transport to Canada. We at LCAR fostered him while adopters were being coordinated but sadly he did not secure a Canadian foster or adopter in time for the transport. We have continued to foster him since then in hopes of finding him that family he is so patiently waiting for.
