Meet Vagabond, a 5-year-old male Husky mix.
Vagabond has not had an easy time lately. He was posted on facebook so many local residence may already know his story.
Vagabond was stray for a long time. Many people tried to catch him but he was not ready to trust anyone yet. After multiple attempts a local hero was contacted who specializes in catching the uncatchable. Vagabond seem to recognize right away that this was the person to trust and was quickly on his way to the vet. After a full exam, neuter, xray and tooth extraction Vagabond is now safely at YHS and ready for adoption. Luckily his leg was not broken but sadly he was shot in the past and will always have a limp. Vagabond does amazing on his leash and is happy to go out and explore the park. Adopters must have a securely fenced in yard so that he will be safe and never seen running as a stray again. To truly know how sweet Vagabond is you must meet him in person. Please call the shelter today to arrange a visit!
