Fuel the mostly red dog is from Tanana. She is out there right now along with her kennel mate Belah. The family in Tanana would love to find a really good retirement home for these 2 girls and no one in Tanana has said they would like a pet/retirement husky. So, if we could find these girls a home in Fairbanks or the Anchorage area that would be great. Here is what her owner says about Fuel.
“This is Fuel. Small female about 40#’s. 10 years old, experienced sled dog in swing. Doesn’t like to be in lead unless chasing another team. Hasn’t run much this year except around the yard. She had all her vaccines, but no records. She had pups once, 4 years ago. She doesn’t like to be inside for very long, but maybe could get to like it. She will sleep in a dog house, but likes it on the open side, otherwise she sleeps on the ground. Friendly, but a little reserved.”
Belah is the red dog. Here is what her owner says about her:
“This is Belah (bee- lu, short u). It means white in Czech. 45 or 50# female, 8 years old. Has some miles, this winter, about 300. Experienced sled dog on rough trails, water, wind, overflow, etc. A bit on the lazy side, but still likes to go. She likes to be inside and wouldn’t mind the couch. Easy keeper, good drinker loves to eat, so gains weight quickly. Very friendly, would make a good pet too. Has all vaccines, but no records. ”
If anyone is interested in these dogs we could try to find a flight into town for them.
Does Belah run lead? Looking for an experienced calmer dog to trust my 9 yr old son with. New to mushing but in need of a leader.
From what the owner told me, it doesn’t sound like she runs lead.
Ok thank you, if you hear of any would you let me know. Looking for 5 to 8 yr old leader to be spoiled indoor and out but to run with my son and do some skijoring and hiking with too.
I’m passing these two gals on to a woman in town I know looking for a walking companion, but “outdoor compatible” dog.Maybe Fuel and she could be a fit.
For Brandi: There are also a few dogs looking for homes through the August Fund, a support rescue group we network with from time to time. There is a short haired female named Galena who has run for kids and is mentioned as sweet and seems well adjusted. She is in North Pole. Go to: https://www.theaugustfund.com/available-dogs.html
Thank you so much I’ll check it out.
I looked for Galena but didn’t see any mention of her in the available dogs. I sent them a message in case. Thank you
