SLED DOG RESCUE
Madison, a husky who is about 1 year old, loves to cuddle, gets along well with other dogs and kids, but may knock over small children. (Best with no cats or small dogs). Coming to rescue, she was quite thin, and her hair a bit scraggly from poor nutrition. With a little added weight and healthy diet, her coat will improve. She hasn't had much training, but does well on leash; is smart and will learn quickly. She's a little jumpy, strong, with lots of prey drive. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and negative for heartworms. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-471-5822.
Boot Camp is sociable and outgoing, and will need ongoing physical exercise and mental stimulation to keep him healthy. A basic manners training class is recommended for him and his adopters. Adoption fee for adult dogs is $225 and includes 60 percent off one seven-week dog training session.
