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.
