    Default Looking for a good dog

    I had recently lost my best friend. He was a Siberian Husky and I think it is time to find another. I am looking for a sled dog to pull a sled when we are out walking, hunting or camping. I saw this ad on Craigslist and wondering if anyone knows this kennel and has any info on it? Thanks



    Dog kennel downsizing Dogs looking for homes ages 1.5yr to 8. Most of the dogs have ran at least one of the following races since 2004 Klondike 300 Don Bowers 300 Willow 100 Jr Iditarod and Iditarod. Also serum shake down and a few fun races. Most would make great pets or be great on mid/distance team or could be trained for skioring. Out of good blood lines 495-1118 adoption fee $25 or less.

    Default Here is the dog I mentioned...

    Friends,

    Please read the email below. Klute is a 3 year old husky and he belonged to one of the airmen who passed away this summer. He has been living with the widow, but it seems with both of them grieving, it has been impossible to move on. He spent so much time whining around his truck that the widow ended up selling the truck. Kristy told me that Klute was trained to visit patients in the hospital as a way to raise people's spirits so he is highly socialized, trained, and loving. I know many of you already have a pup, but I thought maybe you could forward this to someone who could use a new buddy and give Klute a good home. I was on the verge of going to meet Klute myself, but I'm not quite financially ready yet.Klute[1].pdf

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks but, I need a working dog that is an outdoor dog. One that doesn't mind sleeping outside. That can stay out for long periods of time.

    Sorry, I didn't get back to check answers. That's a good idea. Today I was on Craigslist and someone has a sled along with a dogteam for $500.00. I sure wish I was in a position to buy this sled and team.

    Concerning the dogteam, I can afford to buy it but, I am over 200 miles away and have no place to put them until June.

    Currently the Fairbanks Animal Shelter is full, inside and out! Lots of sled dogs there. I'd be happy to help you get one.

    Well, I may be getting ahead of myself. I was looking for a good sled dog to be my buddy and to pull a small sled when we are out on the walk. Now, I am getting thoughts about running a small team and getting rid of my track vehicle. Also, I am 200 miles in the bush from Anchorage so, I am thinking it may be better to wait until June when I can come into the road system. I believe it would better to meet the dogs in person.

    Lol ok ok. I totally understand. If you want a working buddy, it probably is best to meet them and pick for yourself.
