08/30/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Logan’s family had a new baby. Logan is no longer the baby and was surrendered to our care. We’re told he’s shy around new people, can get jumpy in play, lived well with another Husky and often interacts with other dogs outside the home. Logan doesn’t guard his things, is active and loves to play tug of war, enjoys toys, is housetrained and well behaved when left home alone. We’re all strangers to Logan, yet he greeted me with a wave of his gorgeous plumed tail, his blue eyes catching mine as I leash him. His markings are stunning, his eyes dramatic and fabulous in their shade of blue with a dark mask around them. Logan is great on leash, showed off his housetraining skills the moment we were out the door, posed for pictures, showing off his ‘sit’ by doing a sit, a bow and a bark and then gently took my offered treat. He’s bouncy when he sees other dogs in the park, but is responsive and respectful to his leash handler. A bit opinionated, a quick bark reminds me he’s waiting for his treat, or some petting, and I can imagine a heated conversation about which candidate will be our next President, or who will be the next superstar couple to get a divorce. Gorgeously groomed, sophisticated yet playful, Logan is looking for a new family to take care of. He leans in for petting and loves being with his person. Be sure to ask for Logan when you visit.
