Posted 9-16-20. This is Mishka. She's an 9-month-old 80-pound spayed female Siberian Husky in need of an active, loving home. Her family had her since she was a puppy, but need to find her a new home due to some changes in family circumstances. Mishka is house trained and crate trained and enjoys meeting new people and playing with other dogs. She has not met cats, but this breed typically has some prey drive so a cat-free home would probably be best. This smart and easily trained dog knows how to sit, stay, shake, lay down.

She'll be a wonderful addition to an adopter that understands the mental and physical needs of Northern breed dogs. Mishka is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in the Sacramento area.
