Louise is a unique husky mix with one light blue eye and one brown eye. This super-loving gal is still just a puppy, so she would need some obedience training. Because of the husky nature, she is hyperactive and would require an active home who will be able to take her for daily walks. Get to know her here!

Iroquois and Trey, Both 3
