Winter, July 14 Pet of the Week

Winter needs a place to chill with some cool people during the dog days of summer and forever after. You can’t tell by the black-and-white photo, but Winter has these remarkable odd-color eyes—one blue and one amber—that set her apart from other pets. She’s small, too, for a husky. She has, as volunteer Susan put it, a two-speed setting: 100 mph when she’s playing, and zero mph when she’s worn out from it all and conks out. Winter responds well to commands, especially if followed by a treat or a toy, and also has “husky intelligence,” which manifests in such ways as sensing your mood. You can imagine hers, though—Winter’s been at the shelter since—well, winter. She came in December as a stray and has been here ever since. She needs a home with humans who understand this breed’s needs and will take her on long walks, provide training and lavish affection, which she’ll return hundredfold.
