Story
Meet Kelley! This beautiful 2 year old girl is an Akita/Shepherd mix. She is very friendly, smart and learning leash skills very quickly. She likes other dogs and hasn’t been around a lot of kids but really enjoyed some high school kids that volunteered at the shelter. She was surrendered with her sisters because the owner became overwhelmed with dogs after foolishly deciding to keep a whole litter of puppies that his Akita female had from an accidental pregnancy. ##2006948##

Story
Hey! Do you have previous husky experience? Meet me! I'm Prince! I might not live in a castle anymore, but I sure hope I do one day. At 8 years old, I've had a lot of experiences in life and I'm ready to have a few more! I walk well on a harness and love to meet new people. However, when it comes to other dogs, no thank you! I may sometimes get a little bit TOO excited or anxious but I am easily redirected with treats or stuffies. As an older lad, I've got some health concerns with my joints, my teeth and my ears. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease but as of now I have no symptoms! The medical staff taking care of me would be happy to talk to you about all my quirks before adopting. Come say hello to royalty and take me home today! Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh Northside- 1101 Western Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15233 Kennel License #- 1121

Story
Who on Earf is this tornado wrapped in fur? It's Earf! Like most adolescent huskies, he is full of energy and has no manners. Earf was found as a stray, so we don't know what the first year of his life was like. He has many of the behaviors of a typical husky and is quite the handful, so we are requiring that potential adopters have experience with the breed. We are also requiring that all members of the household including children and other dogs meet with him before adoption. Earf is very smart and will need a family who know how to give both his brain and his body a workout. Earf to adopters; come meet this playful, love bug today!
