Dogs name is Whistler. (but spoken with a German accent, Vhisller ?) I have spent most of the day right behind this lost dog. It is from Norway. A slim husky, mottled white with black ears. NOT a city dog. There are pictures on Facebook, which I don't belong to.
I live in Fairview and he has been in the woods off of Sitka Park, south of Merrill Field. Not scared, but very wary. Raised by women and wouldn't come to me. I tracked it down 3 times, once within 30 feet. Had moose meat to offer, but wouldn't come in.
The dog is owned by Sylvia. Iditarod team leader. I actually saw the dog yesterday down at Ship Creek while checking on the boat. I could have trapped it easy. I opened the truck door, knowing someone had just dumped it there. No go and I didn't chase it. Feel kinda bad now I didn't. Paid some tribute post holing thru the snow all day though.
If anyone sees this dog, I have contact numbers to call.
