Juniper and North were found running at large in California in mid-February. The boys were taken to a shelter and waited out their stray hold, hoping that their owner(s) would come for them.

Our facebook angel, Kathy J, kept an eye on the boys for us and when no owner appeared, they went up for adoption. After seeing their shelter video, WGSDR was there at the ready when they weren't immediately adopted.

North (the smaller of the two) is said to be about a year old. Juniper is 2+ years. The particular shelter that they were in only puts "good dogs" up for adoption, so we were pretty confident that the temperaments of both dogs were sound. Shelter notes on North indicated, "he's just a little shy."

Taking on two new boys is going to be an expensive undertaking. Click to help Juniper & North via Paypal:

UPDATE 2/11: Thanks to our good friends at Husky Camp, the boys were pulled from the shelter this morning and will be spending the next several weeks at Husky Camp until transport to Arizona can be arranged for them (in early March). While in California they will be neutered, updated on shots and microchipped. The boys will be available for (separate) adoption as soon as they arrive in Arizona. Please check back for updates from Husky Camp.

UPDATE 2/12: The boys were neutered today and North was found not only to have a retained testicle, but also a hernia! Both of which were taken care of during his surgery -- he's going to be a very sore puppy tomorrow. Juniper's neuter surgery was routine, and he's recovering nicely.

Adoption fees to be determined.
