"Hi my name is Sarah, I'm at the Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Control with our pet of the week my friend Mr. Scronch. He is a year and a half old Akita and Husky mix. He came to us as a stray so we don't know a whole lot about him but since he's been here he's been pretty friendly with other dogs. If you have a dominant male in your household we would recommend a mutual visit with them however. He is very sweet with people.

We believe that he was mostly an outside dog, he doesn't always do a perfect job keeping his kennel clean but he does try really hard. He really likes his outside dog house. Sometimes we have to talk him out of getting out of the cozy straw, to come inside for meals. He's a snugglebug, he loves pets. He's very nice. A sweet gentleman. We don't know a whole lot about him because he came to us as a stray a couple times actually so he might need some extra containment. He might be an escape artist. But he seems to be very sweet with people.

We recommend bringing the whole family down to make sure he is a good fit. If dogs aren't quite your style, we have lots of other critters here looking for homes. We have cats, some bunnies, a duck, a turtle, and a couple guinea pigs. So come on down and see if you can't find yourself a new family member."
