Dog Blog

The Dog Blog is a community of ordinary dog lovers who have come together to discuss our extraordinary dogs. Each Monday, a new topic is introduced. If you've got an opinion, share it. If not, look for the current "anything goes" topic and introduce a discussion of your own. On Fridays, weigh in about your training questions and successes.
Your host: Mike Lewis is a little-dog nerd and the proud owner of Eddie and Jillian, a pair of Yorkies who think they're huskies, and Lucy, a sweet Chessie. R.I.P., Rusty. Contact mlewis@adn.com

AACCC Adoption of the Week: Meet Rusty

RustyRusty
Here's Anchorage Animal Care and Control's Adoption of the Week, courtesy of Brooke Taylor, AACCC public relations coordinator.

Please meet Rusty, a 6 year old, neutered male, golden retriever mix. Friendly, docile, very sweet and easy to handle, Rusty is an experienced people lover. Affectionate, playful, obedient, he likes walks, the outdoors, chasing sticks, and hanging out with his humans. He also rides well in the car. He is not a good match for small children, however, and will chase small animals (so best to a home without cats). He would make a wonderful pet for a quiet home. Rusty can be adopted for $72, as he is already neutered, which includes his MOA license, vaccinations, and microchip. Call 343-8122 for more information.

Adoption update: Tama and Ripley are both still available.
