Casey's Story...
Meet Casey!

Casey is a 6 month old, male Alaskan husky. He is a sweet, affectionate boy who was found emaciated and crying in a parking lot in Bethel by 2 nurses. Casey is now healthy, at a normal weight, neutered, and micro-chipped. You would never know Casey had a rough start to life. He is a sweet and loving boy who loves every person he meets and secretly wishes he could be small so he could be a lap dog! Casey is great with children, other dogs of any size, does well on a leash, and quiets down nicely in the home. He has chewed only on his toys/bones and has not been destructive. Casey will go in his kennel but does cry initially before quieting down so apartment dwellers, this has potential to be a problem. However this is improving and with more training he should get even better. I have had him off leash in relatively controlled situations with my dogs and he has done great; stayed close and has come when called. Casey sits for his food and treats, he also responds well to corrections but is still working on "off" (he has trouble containing his excitement when greeting people). We are also working on house training; I think he knows to go outside, he just doesn't signal yet. Casey would be perfect for any person or family who is active. He is a sled dog and will do best with daily activity. If you like to ski-jor, I think he would be a good ski-jor partner. Casey is about 23 lbs now but will be a medium-large to large, lean dog.

*Update* Casey is a joy to foster. He is 90% house-trained and will only need continued reinforcement. His confidence is increasing and will go outside (in a fenced yard) by himself or with the other dogs and he is now comfortable riding in the car. Casey has been exposed to 2 cats, both who live with dogs. The first he sniffed a few times and walked away and the other he barked at but did not chase. So, I think he will be able to live with most cats. He is doing much better in his kennel and would not worry as much about barking.

For more information about Casey or to meet him please e-mail his foster mom. at cjg.adopt@gmail.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Casey, a Wasilla Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Husky for sale in Wasilla, or seeking a Husky dog from a breeder in Wasilla.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wasilla already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wasilla breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Husky breeders who help with Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wasilla paves the way for another one to be saved.
