Meet Arya

Please read entire posting for information on our new procedures.

Arya is a beautiful young husky who's looking for a kind and patient family.
We are requiring the potential adopters have another well established dog with similar energy. We are also requiring Arya's adopter to have a secure fenced in yard.

She loves fetch and going to the dog park. She walks well on a leash but does not understand yet understand the dangers of cars and the road and cannot be off leash.

Arya is very active and will make a great dog for an active family with a secure yard. She can be timid when meeting new men but has not shown any aggression.
From Arya's Foster Mom: Arya is doing amazing. She is great with doorways and staircases now. She is great with dogs of all sizes and loves to play and run. She loves fetch and is great at always bringing the ball back and dropping it. I take her to the dog park frequently and she does well off leash with the other dogs. Walking on a leash is usually good. However, she doesnt quite understand the danger of cars and the road. She sleeps in her crate at night but I leave it open. She sleeps through the night. She pees and poops frequently and is full of energy so she needs plenty of time outside daily. I think a very active family with a backyard would be the best fit for Arya. And if they have a dog that would be a huge plus! Sometimes she is afraid of men and wont let them pet her but is never aggressive, just a soft bark. She tends to warm up to them eventually.

If you're interested in Arya, please go to our website and fill out an application.

Adopters will be considered on the totality of the application and how it matches the particular pet's needs.

Most dogs who come from the shelter will not be house trained.

We do not know or make guarantees that a dog or cat will do well with all children, other animals or is house-trained.

We will need to talk to all of the adults in the home prior to making an appointment to visit with a pet.

In most cases its necessary to to have family dogs come into meet your potential adoptee. Please be sure your dogs are spayed or neutered and current on vaccines (distemper - parvo and rabies) before bringing them for a meeting.

All dogs must be transported home in a travel crate to transport your new pup home safely.

Renters must provide a copy of a lease indicating pets are allowed or contact information for the landlord.
