Story
Meet Ozzy, a spirited four-year-old Siberian Husky with captivating brown eyes. He’s ready to bring joy and adventure into your life! Ozzy is energetic and loves exploring the outdoors. He’s intelligent, quickly learns new things, and often seems to think he can converse in English, adding his charming commentary on life. While Ozzy is delightful with people, he can be assertive with other dogs, considering himself the "Alpha." However, with patient guidance and proper introductions, he can get along well with other dogs. Despite his feisty nature, Ozzy loves cuddles. He thrives on affection and melts hearts with his sweet demeanor. At night, he enjoys cozying up in the master bedroom, cherishing companionship. We seek someone who understands Huskies' needs and can provide the love and care Ozzy deserves. An experienced individual or family with ample outdoor space would be ideal. Ready to welcome Ozzy into your life? Reach out today to ensure Ozzy finds the perfect forever home

Story
Yeti is a beautiful young boy looking for his forever family! Yeti is super loving and affectionate and loves to bring you gifts, from his dog bowls, to toys or anything he finds in the yard! Yeti would do best with an active family and children 16 yrs + as he does get mouthy due to anxiety - but he has shown that he is very eager to learn and please. He has been non reactive with other dogs - Meet and Greets are required with other dogs in the home. We do NOT Cat Test - If you're interested in meeting this happy boy, please fill out an application on our website www.naugatuckanimalcontrol.com

Story
Life can be funny sometimes. 8 weeks ago, my husband and I moved to Maine after selling our house in MA. 2 weeks later after moving to Maine, he passed away unexpectedly and suddenly. My life has been turned upside down and I am no longer able to care for my two ABs. If you can help and take this kind chill pup to your home and give him a life he deserves.
