Encore's Story

Say hello to Encore!  Encore is a friendly four-year-old Husky mix who wants nothing more than to be your very best friend.  He originally came to PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners.  It didn’t take long for this gorgeous boy to find a forever home.  Unfortunately, his owner was unable to care for him properly and after spending over three years in the home he was brought back to us in the hopes that he could find the perfect family for him.  Even though he has been through so much already, Encore is a bright and vibrant boy who has the good looks to match his outstanding personality!  He is very active and loves playing with squeaky toys.  He can even catch them in the air when you toss them to him!  He also loves to play fetch and showing off some of the basic commands he’s already mastered for a good, stinky treat!  Encore seems to have an amazingly positive outlook on life and hopes to find someone that perfectly matches that loves life just as much as he does.

Encore is searching for a moderately active home without young children and an experienced owner who has strong handling skills.  He is hoping to continue his training in the future, so that he can learn how to walk like a good boy on a leash and gain even more confidence in himself!  Encore hopes that he will be spoiled with tons of love and treats once he finally finds the perfect home for him.  He surely will make a delightful canine companion to the lucky family that gives him a chance and will return all the love and affection he receives with lots of wet kisses and cuddles!  Meet him today!  You’ll be rushing to make him a part of the family if you do!

  • Squeak!  Squeak!  I love Squeaky chew toys!
  • I'm a great walking partner and can go for miles.
  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day.
  • I'm a people person!


  • I would love to find a home with children 15+.
