ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content*Staying Connected with the Animal Control Commission - COVID 19 Click here to attend virtual meeting and/or testify* Pet of the Week Too fast for the sluggish at heart, too slow for competition- poor Randall was surrendered to the shelter because he wasn’t fast enough to race but was then returned by his adoptive owner because he was more dog than they had time for. Much like Goldilocks, Randall is looking for a family that is Just Right. As an outside working dog, Randall just doesn’t have the indoor and people experience that many families want. Randall's new owner should either utilize him as a skijor or mushing companion, where he is confident and has experience, or be prepared to devote a lot of time and energy to transitioning Randall to become an indoor dog. Sweet and timid with a playful side that could come out with time, Randall needs an understanding owner who understands he is more like old fashioned oats, not the 1 minute microwave sort.
