Facts about Scooter

This reserved gal is a bit of wallflower which is ironic considering she runs in lead when pulling a sled. Scooter is extremely intelligent and is a quick learner. The Mackenzie River Husky (one of the true arctic sled dog breeds) part of her makes her a little more independent and introverted then your typical sled dog. Also at 12 years old, she is comfortable in her own fur and doesn't seek constant approval. Scooter would be the perfect companion for someone looking for some moral support as they start writing their memoir from home. Given her reserved disposition Scooter would prefer a home with "mature" adults and dogs that enjoy having a routine and strive to maintain a "zen" atmosphere. If you want a dog that has a higher IQ then most people who also enjoys the home life then Scooter is your lady. *Available for adoption after March 15th.

Our adoption fee is $250 and covers: health certificate, clear stool sample, microchip, updated vaccines, spay or neuter if necessary, a harness, and use of Tagg GPS tracker for 3 months.

Things To Consider Before You Adopt:

Our adoptable sled dogs range in age from 3 - 14. We very rarely have puppies/youngsters available adoption.

Our adoptable sled dogs are: Alaskan Huskies, Siberian Huskies, Malamutes and/or mixes of all of the above.

Our adoptable sleds dog are used to living in an outdoor, working environment. This means that they will need to be house trained and exposed to house stimulus like stairs, cars, vacuums, wood floors etc. Adopting an adult sled dog is similar to welcoming a puppy.

Our adoptable sled dogs range from medium to high energy. In general they require multiple walks daily and engaging toys when inside the home. A bored/under exercised sled dog is a destructive and anxious sled dog!

Our adoptable sled dogs are trained to run and are therefore a high flight risk. We do require that they be on leash or within a fenced in yard at all times until proper recall training has been received.

Our adoptable sled dogs have befriended many kitties in their new homes, that being said adopters are instructed to monitor all interactions with small animals as our four-leggers have limited exposure to them while with us and there is no telling how they may react.
