"Hi, my name is Ellen Mitchel I'm at the Fairbanks animal control right now and this week's pet of the week is Jackie. Jackie is a sled dog and thus she needs a lot of exercise. She is only 5 years so she will have a lot left to go in her.

We would like to find Jackie a home with someone who's really active and likes to go skijoring or has a kid that wants to go junior mushing or skijoring. Jackie is really active and has lived outside for most of her life. So she may need a little bit of an adjustment period adjusting to a house environment. She may have a couple accidents as she figures out the rules of being in a human house. She also needs to stay away from small animals, small children and very small dogs because she does have that prey drive. She really wants to eat small things.

If Jackie is not right for you she has a whole team full of mates out here that are still looking for homes good active and loving homes and we would love to see you come in."
