FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - It’s time to once again meet Spirit, the adorable Husky sure to warm your heart.

Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say about our Pet of the Week:

“Spirit is a three year old Alaskan Husky. You might remember her from back in December when she was here. She was adopted out and unfortunately got away from her previous owners and made her appearance all over Facebook. Because of that, we are really wanting to stress that Spirit is a dog that needs to be on a leash all the time. She was a sled dog and lived her entire life outdoors prior to coming to the shelter. So she still needs to learn the ins and outs of being an indoor dog.

She is super sweet with her animal tenders, loves all the attention. But she still needs a little work on potty training walking on a leash, [and] basic commands such as sit and stay.

If you are looking to add a new addition to your family, and you think Spirit can be the girl for you, please give the shelter a call. She has a few kitty friends and a few mice friends here at the shelter.”
