ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Spring is a lovely young Alaskan husky who was surrendered to the shelter because her previous owner felt that they had too many dogs. According to the previous owner, Spring has lived outside her entire life as a sled dog in training. Alaskan huskies love to stretch out their legs and run to keep them mentally happy and healthy! She has been around children and is happy to meet and play with other dogs. Spring has had training for mushing and skijoring, but will need more training if she continues to do those activities. She is very personable and sweet! Spring is hoping to find an active home that will give her opportunities to exercise all year long and that will have time to snuggle with her as well.
