Pringle is a male two-year-old Siberian husky available for adoption at our Dog Adoption Center. Pringle first arrived at Valley Animal Center as a puppy in May of 2017 from animal control services. He was quickly adopted within days of being at our shelter. Unfortunately, a month later Pringle was brought back to us. He was adopted out yet again at the end of June 2017, and we had hoped this was his forever home.
Just a few weeks ago, Pringle was found at one of our local animal control facilities where his owner had left and abandoned him. It always saddens our hearts when an animal is abandoned or returned to us. It’s important to remember that adopting a new pet is a promise to care for that animal for the duration of its life. With cats and dogs, that can be up to 15+ years! Before you consider adopting, you should make sure that you and your family are ready for that commitment. We’re hoping this time around, someone will commit to loving Pringle for the duration of his life.
Pringle would do best in a home that can provide him ample exercise and play-time. Originally bred as sled dogs, Siberian Huskies are natural working dogs. They are known to have high energy and can become bored if not given the proper attention. Many people are not fully aware of this and often return, or abandon, their huskies. Luckily, Valley Animal Center has a membership-based dog park onsite that you can utilize if you’re interested in adopting Pringle (or any of our other adoptable dogs).
Valley Animal Center’s dog park features separate dog runs for canines under twenty-five pounds and over twenty-six pounds, as well as a 2,000 gallon wading pool with water jets for these warm summer months. Annual membership is just $50 per dog and includes your very own keycard allowing access to the park. Daily membership is just $5 per dog. For more information on our dog park, please visit our website.
Like all of our adoptable animals, Pringle has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Pringle is available for adoption for just $75 for the entire month of July. If you would like more information about Pringle or any of our other adoptable animals, please call the Valley Animal Center at (559) 233-8690 or stop by the Dog or Cat Adoption Center, open seven days a week from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
