Very Important Pet: Gracie Girl the gentle Alaskan Husky
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Gracie Girl is a good girl looking for a home as loving as she is.
Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say:
“Gracie Girl is a four-year-old Alaskan Husky who was surrendered to the shelter because her elderly owner was unable to care for her and her doggy friends. Gracie Girl has been super sweet with her animal tenders, a real gem.
She did spend most of her time outdoors in her previous home, so she may need some reminders on potty training. She’s done pretty good here at the shelter about keeping her kennel clean.
Gracie Girl also has an extensive medical history about her weight. She has struggled in the past with keeping weight on. The veterinarian is currently recommending that she stays on a limited ingredient dog food, and she has been doing wonderfully here at the shelter on that diet.
Gracie Girl does not have any history in the past with interacting with children, so if you do have kids in the home, please make sure to do introductions properly. Gracie Girl did come to the shelter with other dogs, but we don’t necessarily know how she does with other dogs, cats, pocket pets, or livestock. Please remember, all introductions should be done in a slow, safe, and controlled environment. Alaskan Huskies do tend to have a higher prey drive, so if you have those smaller critters around, please keep that in mind.
Gracie Girl is sweet and spunky, loves going on walks, and loves getting attention. If you are interested in this sweet girl or any of our other dogs, cats, or pocket pets here at the shelter, please give us a call!”
