For each of these reasons, we end up transitioning a few sled dogs every year to the wonderful world of petdom. Sometimes the dogs stay here with us as one of our pets, while other times we look outside the kennel for new homes. Most of our dogs were born here and it is always hard to say good-bye to them. However, we know that there are lots of great homes out there and loving families who make excellent parents for our fur babies. Check back with us soon to read "Sled Dogs as Pet Dogs: Adoption Stories! (Part 2)" to discover first hand accounts of sled dog adoption and see some adorable family photos!
