From the Foster:

Akoya is such a good family dog, she likes to be around the family at all times. She does not get on the furniture until prompted but when she does she likes to sit as close as possible almost always putting her head in your lap. For the most part she is a very calm, lazy dog but she does enjoy her playtime, chasing toys down the hall, and running around outside in the yard.

 

Akoya is a very trainable dog- she knows sit, lay down, come. She is also very good at staying in her “safe” place until told she can come out. She is still a work in process with walking nicely on a leash, being Lab and Husky she would rather explore her surroundings then walk with no fun. Akoya likes to have her human as the Alpha, she needs structure and rules- almost seems like she enjoys it.

 

She has no possession issues with food or toys. She can be protective of her family, but hopefully with training and socializing this could change. She currently lives with 3 girls under the age of 10 (9 years, 3 years and 9 months). They can pretty much do anything to her and if she doesn’t like it she just walks away. She knows the difference between her toys and human toys. She has never chewed on anything in the house that wasn’t given to her for that purpose. She has never had an accident in the house and is really good at telling you she needs to go potty. She was bell trained to let us know she needed out until it became a child hazard.

 

We have noticed that she does not do well with crowds in the house. She just needs to be crated or put in a “safe” place for her to feel comfortable. She prefers a nice quite home. Overall; she is the best girl for the house, she loves her family, she trains easily and will capture your heart in no time.
