“A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.”
— Erica Jong, novelist

Whoever let him go, whoever opened the door and watched him wander off one day, obviously never realized what a great companion this 2-year-old goofball of a Siberian husky would make to the right owner.
With a mask of white color that veers down to his chest and a vest of black and gray making it seem as though he’s wearing an evening coat, Loki is an absolute stunner.
He’s definitely a connoisseur of stuffed toys and tennis balls, especially as he plays his favorite game of keep-a-way. If the schedule for the day includes a tour about the neighborhood, he’s eagerly available to walk on a leash, but he will need some training to teach him to not pull or weave.
Loki has all the enthusiasm of a typical 2-year-old child unleashed. He loves people, but will need his new owners to teach him boundaries.
He seems to enjoy other dogs, but can be a bit overly pushy to play with them and a bit too eager to play rougher than he should. Again, this is where a consistent amount of training will help him understand boundaries.
If you’re looking for a companion with a large personality that’s ready to give you the best of all of his days, then Loki is ready to expand your life! He’s already in the back packing his bags.
Congratulations to Sophie, one of our longest residents in the cat room, for finding her forever home!
If you ever met sweet and kind Sophie, every stigma ever placed on black cats would melt away as you looked into her soft, gold eyes. You’ve finally found your way home, Sophie.
