Pet of the Week: Make Everyone “Jelly” with Peanut the Dog

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska Peanut is a two year old Alaskan husky mix who was brought the shelter because his owner had too many sled dogs. Animal Tender Kimberly Imbert at the Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter spoke about Peanut and some of his most attractive attributes.

“He is actually an experienced sled dog he has been run on 6 and 10-dog teams. He knows what he is doing and would be a really good addition with a recreational team,” said Imbert.

She says he is a little timid but really personable. Peanut is a short coat mix and would benefit if house trained so he can come indoors when it's really cold outside during the winters.

Peanut is said to do really good with other dogs

“A volunteer group actually took him out on a run and he did very well, so we think he would be a great addition to someone's recreational team, or if they want a ski-jouring buddy , or just an active buddy because he is really sweet and could transition into a house dog if someone took the time and gave him plenty of exercise,” said Imbert

She said there are also a lot of other sled dogs at the shelter looking for loving homes.

“Even though winter is hopefully coming to an end they would be really good for bike jouring or hiking or any kind of outdoor activities that you are interested in they would be really good companions to be with,” said Imbert
