PET OF THE WEEK: This pup is ready for a new home

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) "Hi I'm Kimberly and this week’s Pet of the Week is Jackie. Jackie is a one-year-old Alaskan husky and cattle dog mix. He was brought to the shelter because he was chasing the cat in the home and was also marking. Jackie has been neutered since he came to the shelter, so hopefully his marking behavior will cease to exist.

Jackie is a mix of very intelligent and athletic breeds, so he needs an active home to keep him busy. He'll do really great if he has a lot of activity and learns tricks and he would probably like to chase all kinds of things because he is a herding breed mix. And most likely wouldn't do great in a home with other cats because of his history chasing them but he has done really well at the shelter and is really friendly and outgoing with almost everyone that he meets.

Jackie also has other dog friends looking for loving homes at the shelter.”
