ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the most decadent chocolate delight is at the shelter ready to melt your heart! Truffle is a beautiful, chocolate brown Alaskan husky mix! She found herself at the shelter as a stray, where her age was estimated at 8 years. Being a little on the timid side and fairly quiet, she doesn’t usually grab the attention of people who pass by her kennel. Truffle was likely an outdoor dog most of her life, however she is enjoying the transition indoors and is hoping to continue this lavish lifestyle! Truffle keeps her kennel clean and stays calm when she is indoors. Although she will need to be patiently taught some indoor behavior, we feel that she will naturally have many good manners that will make her a wonderful addition into a loving family.
