Meet Cortana

Contributed by Tracy Smith – Animal Care Dispatcher

Cortana is a 3 year old husky mix. She is an attractive dog who is full of energy. She was adopted from the shelter and returned because the cats attacked her. Cortana has an independent nature, and while treat motivated, is more concerned about the whole world around her. She has potential as a dog who could learn skijoring, but currently has no training in a harness.

Cortana is reported to be good with cats and some dogs, but her previous owners stated that she is not good with children and she has shown food aggression. Cortana has received little training, but she will sit and lay down for treats. She is very friendly and loves a good chew toy. 

Cortana, however, will dash out the door and take off if she gets the chance. She needs a home dedicated to teaching her some basic obedience and spending time giving her the exercise that she needs.
