Update: April 20.  Levi is back at the shelter.  I guess expectations for him being able to run off leash in the first few days of a new home, were too high and he is back at the shelter.  He is such a great dog.  Just needs that special home where he can possibly do agility and bond with his new owners.

Update: April 15:  Levi has been adopted!!  I’ve heard that the people seem great and understand his need for exercise and his love of high jumping.  Hope it works out for him.

Levi is a LONG legged pointer mix that has been at the shelter many times.  He really needs a home that understands this breed and can give him a LOT of exercise.  This boy loves to go go go.  He is adept at jumping high fences. Do you skijor?  Ride bikes?  Like to hike for long hours?  Want a companion that will love going out with you?  Check out Levi!  He is already neutered.




Update: May 5th.  The owner has decided to keep Kayla and work with her more.  

Kayla is a gorgeous husky/samoyed that needs a home where she will get a lot of exercise.  She can skijor and prefers to be working rather than running alongside her family!!  She truly is a husky at heart.  She is a very affectionate dog, that sometimes has a mind of her own, but for the most part can be run off leash.  She is an intense worker and definitely needs an outlet for her energy.  If you would like to meet Kayla please email and let me know and I can forward your information to the owner.  She is not at the Fairbanks shelter.

Shirley and Alice



Update: May 10th:  Shirley and Alice were adopted into the same family!  YEAH!  Go girls!


This is a courtesy listing.  Shirley and Alice (Alice is on a chain because she likes to try and jump fences…) are 2 year old sisters.  They are both spayed.  They were rescued from a neglect situation where they weighed around 25 pounds.  They are now gaining weight and getting healthy.  They LOVE each other.  They should both go to the same home.  Their mother was a husky and their father was a chocolate lab.  They are both shy, but are gaining trust.  With some love and attention, these 2 girls will make great pets.  If you are interested please email:  That is the best contact.  You can also call and leave a message at:370-3123.  Sweet sweet girls.




Update: May 16th.  Luke has been adopted.  It is a great home.  So happy.

April 28th.  A happy picture of Luke.  He is so sweet and loving.  Loves to give kisses.  Walks pretty nicely on a leash.

Update: April 22: Lots of new information about Luke.  He comes from great bloodlines.  But was part of too many breedings at a mushers house and he was given away along with some littermates and half litter mates to another place.  Luke had found a home and was a DRIVEN sled dog.  He does have some “bad” habits though and his owner had surgery and hard to deal with such an energetic dog.  So…Luke chews lines.  If you turn your back, the neck line is chewed and the neighbor dog’s neckline is chewed..then he starts on the main line.  This is a dog with a LOT of excited energy.  He loves to go so he shows his frustration at hook up by chewing.  But once on the go he is a total loper (doesn’t trot) and doesn’t slack off at all on 20 mile runs.  This dog needs a job.  He is sweet and gets along with other dogs.  He can’t be let loose (although he can be loose to go to the line and get hooked up) in a non running situation as he will take off exploring.  He needs an experienced home that doesn’t let their dogs sit on chains.  He needs to run and work.  I bet with his drive he would probably lead too!


This is a funny picture of Luke, but the best that I took.  He is actually licking his lips and not snarling!  Luke is a boy that was brought into the shelter because he had TOO much power for his musher friend.  That is a first I think….a dog brought to the shelter because he was too powerful.  He is a nice boy with a sweet disposition.  He doesn’t chew up his blanket and is quiet in his pen.

Luke is 5 years old and already neutered!  Come and visit with Luke and you will fall in love.

Group of husky/australian shepherd mixes

These pups all came in together when their owner got too sick to take care of them.  They are a mix and OH so sweet.  Baby Girl is 6 years old.  Dolly is 8 years.  The male (don’t know his name but I will find out soon!) is older and the female is mid age.  Pyro is a 9 year old male and Screwdriver, the shy boy is 4 years old.  Other than Screwdriver (and he is just very shy…)all of the dogs are super friendly.  They just want a pet home where they can run joyfully and have their special owner that SO wants to cuddle.  This is a great group of smaller dogs.  They aren’t sled dogs and have never been in harness.  They will get a full vet check as they just came into the shelter.  These dogs will steal your heart.

April 17th: The males name is Copper.  He is 9 years old.  Super friendly boy.  The girl is Dobby and she is 4 years old.  She is quiet and calm.












Chase and Yahoo

Chase Yahoo

Update April 20.  Yahoo has been adopted!  And Chase had a loose tooth pulled. Such sweet boys.

Chase, top picture (house A) and Yahoo, bottom picture (house F) are older neutered boys that would love a retirement home.  Their paper work says they are 6 years old, but I think these boys are much older. They are such very very sweet dogs.  They have many years left in them but would love to lay at your feet at night and take leisurely walks.  They are well socialized and would make a great friend for a responsible child.  I love these boys.  They just want to give love and get a little in return.  Chase has a loose tooth and will have that looked at before an adoption.  Please consider adopting one of these boys and fulfilling the rest of their years.




Update March 9:  Wego has been adopted.  Sure hope he went to a fun and active home.  A nice boy!

Not the best picture of Wego, but here he is.  I’ll try to get one of him outside.  He is a pointer/husky mix that is very very active.  He has been a sled dog and a skijor dog but wasn’t getting along in his first home.  He has no dew claws.  His activity levels are very high.  He definitely needs someone who loves to run, skijor, bike or hike.  He also loves to play ball. This dog would make a great and devoted companion for someone who loves the outdoors and wants a dog to do everything with them.  He can be a bit barky and at the shelter he will tear up blankets because he is so bored in that situation.  He has been at the shelter for some time now and waiting for that high energy person to come and get him.

Clyde (Camo-courtesy post)


Update: Nov. 22. Clyde was brought back to the shelter and adopted again.  No cats this time.

For some reason I thought his name was Camo….so this is an update and his name is Clyde…

This is a courtesy post.  Camo came from the Fairbanks Animal shelter.  He is a gorgeous boy but has cataracts which hamper his vision.  He lives in a household with other dogs and cats and he loves the dogs (a husky mix and a pomeranian) but terrorizes the cats.  So the owner is looking for a new home for him.  He is on prozac but it is possible that he could be weaned off it if given a ton of exercise for his high energy.  He comes with a kennel, blanket, some food and bones.  They hate to give him up, but the cats can’t be around him.  Email me and I can put you in touch with the owner.  He certainly needs a home that understands the husky mentality.




update: Amos has been adopted!  He will be living in a very active home to fulfill his energy needs.

Amos is a 5 year old hound mix that has run the Open North American.  He is super friendly, loves to jump and wants to play and run.  He should be inside as he has that very short houndy coat.  He would probably love to be a skijor dog and I bet would love to run or bike in the summer with you.  He is outside at the shelter.



Porter is an 8 year old intact male pointer mix.  He is still crazy active and would love a skijor home where he can live inside but have an activity to run off his energy.  He is super friendly and at the shelter is quite loud, but he just needs a lot of exercise and love to be your best buddy.  He is inside at the shelter.
