Sasha, a husky mix, sitting side-by-side with Olive, a pug, in a forest clearing


Sasha is a Husky mix who worked on the bear project in Montana in 2009. She came to Conservation Canines from WAIF Animal Shelter on Whidbey Island in 2008. Sasha now lives in downtown Portland, Maine with her best friend Olive the Pug! She loves to chase and be chased—no other dogs can keep up with her pace and tricky jumping maneuvers! She is super affectionate, eager to please, and surprisingly mellow around the house. Her favorite things to do are: swim, play ball, chase frogs around the pond, run as fast as she can in deep snow, and go to the beach.
