Pretty, friendly, smart, alert, outgoing and energetic, that’s our Yuki. At 10 months old, this medium-size, Siberian Husky-mix is beautiful, with stunning markings in gray and white. Her large eyes are mesmerizing: one icy blue and the other is warm brown. Fun-loving and frisky, Yuki needs an owner willing to exercise her daily on leash or in a fenced area and give her basic obedience training. Come spend some time with this great dog. Yuki is available through Saturday at the shelter.
