Meet Molly

Contributed by Alaska Animal Advocates

Molly is a sweet girl who tends to attach herself to one person and becomes very protective of her human. This six year old Corgi Mix is the most loyal dog ever and as a result prefers to be the only animal in the house.  Molly does not want to share her person with other people and is getting training to become more adaptable.  She will require a very special home, with a person who can understand her intense love. 

If you think you can provide Molly with the special home she needs, please email Alaska Animal Advocates at or call Angie at (907) 841-3173

Meet Ella

Contributed by Tracy Smith, Animal Care Dispatcher

Ella is a sweet and loyal, year and a half old. Ella was surrendered to the shelter due to not getting along with some adults in the household. Her previous owner reported that she was great with children but scared of adults.  She was indeed very fearful during her first week or two here at the shelter. With a lot of work, we were finally able to get her outside on a leash. At that point, she broke out of her shell. She was still very picky about who she trusted, and avoided anyone else. 

Now, she seems to have forgotten that she was afraid of adults and just wants a good home. She is a very active and loyal dog who loves to play with balls, especially ones that squeak. Ella does have some separation anxiety and has shown some destructive habits when left alone for too long. Ella is house trained and is an indoor dog used to about 3 hours a day of exercise. She is not kennel trained, but needs to be to help with her anxiety problems. She is used to car rides and has not been food aggressive. 

Ella can be described as high energy, friendly, affectionate, entertaining, playful, cuddly, smart, goofy, adventurous, nervous, protective and shy. She knows the commands sit, stay, here, roll over, lay down, and “Go potty”. 

Here at the shelter, she has been extremely treat motivated and has shown that she is trainable. She will, however, need additional training as she is full of energy and a very strong girl. She will need to be around adults who let her get to trust them without forcing her to do so, and she will continue to need positive socialization. Ella will also need a home who is willing to kennel train her so that her kennel is a safe and cozy place, so that she does not continue with destructive behaviors brought on by separation anxiety.
