Shadow's Story...
Meet Shadow!

Shadow is a 9 week old Husky mix that hails from north of Wasilla. He probably has a bit of border collie in him too, but he is mainly Husky. He was the puppy that was featured with Santa Paws on Channel 2 that stole the show. He is a very sweet pup and he knows it too! Shadow is shy at first. He may take a moment to take in his surroundings or people and then he warms up. Once he's reached a comfort level he seems to have some moxie and is playful. He certainly enjoys his snuggles too. He is a chewer and will need some appropriate chew toys otherwise you can expect him to go after your fingers! Right now his favorite toys are stuffed animals. He is a curious little guy so he will need to be redirected when necessary. He fits well into most packs and is a pretty submissive dog most of the time. His favorite past times are sleeping, eating and drinking his water....he loves water! He will need to be enrolled in a basic obedience class as soon as he is through with his puppy shots to learn proper behaviors such as not to bite, etc.

*Update* We do suggest that he not be in a home with very small children. He is currently in a home with small children and has played well with them, but we have noticed after clinic this weekend that he is starting to come out of his shell and has some sharp teeth and he needs to learn that those teeth go on stuffed animals and chew toys and not humans :)

For more information or to meet this sweet boy, please call his foster mom Heather:346-2737. Please note this is a home number so please do not try to text this number. Heather will get back to you as soon as possible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a Wasilla Border Collie/Husky puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Husky for sale in Wasilla, or seeking a Border Collie/Husky puppy 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 Border Collie/Husky breeders who help with Border Collie/Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wasilla paves the way for another one to be saved.
