Pure Breed American Alaskan Puppy is New Pet of the Week

Princess the dog

Every Thursday morning at 7:15 a.m., the Humane Society of Ocean City brings in a dog or cat as the official Lite Rock Pet of the Week.  This week’s Pet is a beautiful American Alaskan puppy… named “Princess” . I was joking that, after hearing the name of the breed, I expected a large dog carrying a flask of liquor around its neck.

Princess doesn’t fit that image at all.

I did a little research and it turns out the breed isn’t really from Alaska or even American.  They are traced to Northern Europe where they were originally a member of the German Spitz dog family.  The breed was renamed American Alaskan during the First World War, due to the war-time anti-German prejudice (much like Americans renamed french fries “freedom fries”, when the French opposed America’s invasion of Iraq after the 9/11 attacks).

Anyway, Princess is a real sweetheart; a puppy who is only about 6 months old.  She is a little shy and it takes her awhile to warm up to strangers.  She’s about 30 pounds, but appears bigger with layers of thick hair.

If you are interested in adopting Princess , contact The Humane Society of Ocean City.
