FAIRBANKS, Alaska - "My name is Ellen Mitchell and I work here at the Animal Shelter. The Pet of the Week this week is Scarlet. She was surrendered to the shelter for being too timid in her pervious home. She is a little bit scared of tall guys and people in masks, and loud noises. But she is an absolute sweetheart. Scarlet does well with children of all ages and dogs and cats. Scarlet is a young dog, about less than a year old and she is looking for a new home that will help her with her anxiety issues and help her gain confidence in meeting new people. If Scarlet is not for you, she has a lot of other dog friends at the shelter."
