FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - It’s time to meet Gelert, the Labrador who wants nothing more than to go go go!

Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say:

“Gelert is a six-year-old Lab, and he was surrendered to the shelter because his owners weren’t able to care for him and his little buddy anymore.

Gelert has a lot of energy, and he is that typical Lab that will just play play play nonstop. Gelert does need to be on a special diet and Natural Balance diet, because he does have some skin issues. But they’re maintained really well on that grain-free diet, so it is just something that we’re just asking his new owners to keep him on.

He is a dog that wants to go 24/7. If you are looking for an adventure buddy, he might be the perfect guy for you. We also have a lot of cats here, bunnies, and other dogs looking for their forever homes. If you’re interested, please give the shelter a call!”
