That's the Spirit! On February 10th, this nine to ten-year-old Siberian Husky was surrendered to the Lenoir County SPCA shelter in North Carolina. Usually an owner surrender of any dog, and especially a senior dog, is viewed as a bad thing. However, in this case, it was for the best. Spirit had spent most of her life outside at the end of a chain. While her teeth were in bad shape, her overall health was fairly good.
