Story
Tig is a very friendly people dog but does not do well with other dogs. A very smart high energy dog who can be a goof ball at times. Tig loves to be outside and does great in the winter months. Some fixable issues with being territorial when it comes to toys but pretty normal stuff. As far as his behavior with other dogs, he initially did not have any issues until we got a new puppy which was fine at first and then things deteriorated so we found the puppy a new home. Tog does not have any natural aggression but after face to fave with another dog he usually becomes agitated. Tig typically does not pay much attention to other dogs when on a leash and outside.

Silver, is a spayed female Siberian Husky. She was rescued by my friend Jim along with her brother Vulcan about 6 years ago. Both have been raised outdoors but in warm dog igloos. See additional post on Vulcan. Silver is very friendly with people and other dogs. She is about seven years old and was spayed and given rabies shot one year ago. She is also chipped. Current owner has medical issues and is not able to care for her any longer but loves her dearly. He is looking for a kind family for her and her brother Vulcan to grow old with but is open to separate adoptions.

Story
Willow is a sweet, friendly and energetic girl. She will thrive best with regular exercise and plenty of outdoor time! Willow loves meeting new people and seems to make friends easily. She appears to be potty trained, knows the cue `sit` and walks pretty good on a leash! Willow has not been reactive towards other dogs in the shelter and it is believed that she lived with dogs previously. Unfortunately, Willow was left in the night drop with no paperwork provided with her. Luckily, we can always accommodate a dog meet and greet if needed! Willow is a really great dog and is best suited for a more active family. She could be a great adventure buddy!Willow was adopted from the shelter and once again left in the night drop with no paperwork. We were able to confirm that she was an owner surrender and that she had lived with another dog. No issues were reported.
