Always been drawn to this breed and have owned similar dogs in the past. Just felt right and was in a good stage of my life to help give a husky hero a great retirement.

He has learned to sit, stay and come when I call him. We are working on lie down.

Absolutely and beyond. Big thanks to the Snowy Owl Team, especially Mackenzie for taking the time to meet with me and the various possible adoptees last fall.
