How about Qimmiq - Inuit for Dog? It's pronounced Kimmik. (or Q, or Kim)

I'm sure they were, and no one is saying they can't be trained, or you shouldn't get one as a first dog. But they are a difficult breed and not for everyone. Maybe having another breed mixed in calms them, not sure. But they are a handful for even an experienced person.

lilsis261279, when I say off leash, I mean in an off leash park.. Your fuzzbutt is young, so with constant training you will do fine.

An off leash park is very different than "off leash". Most parks are fenced and there isn't much danger for the dog other than possibly getting in a fight.

Also, socialization is a must.

I couldn't agree more
We have had ours in daycare 2-3 days a week since he was 10 weeks old and he loves to play with other dogs! Our older boy did not get that and he is very animal aggressive

The lady who runs the daycare is also a trainer and has 2 "Alpha trained" dogs and is going to "rehabilitate" our older dog, so I'm excited for that
Maybe he will be able to play and have a little fun!

Thanks Mona, I do not know of any dog friendly parks yet in my area since I am relatively new here but I will be asking around. I guess same goes for kids other then my own because aside from my neighbors I don't know anyone else

March that is a very unique name and now a strong contender on my list .. Thank you very much

Do you like any of these?
I like Cherokee, we had a white husky/shepherd with that name when we were on the farm

Cherokee is also a beautiful name but it is a common name and I do have a taste for the odd or uncommon names
