A pair of energetic young huskies are looking for a new home in Brighton.

Alaska and Dakota are currently being cared for by the council's animal welfare team after their owner became too ill to look after them.

The pair, who are "devoted to each other" so must be re-homed together, are affectionate and well behaved family pets but need plenty of exercise, staff said.

Alaska is a pure bred blue eyed husky while Dakota is a cross-bred with brown eyes.

Officer Stephanie Williams said: “It’s really important that potential new owners realise how much exercise these dogs need. They would make perfect pets for keen runners looking for a canine companion to jog with.

“They are stunning dogs and we would love to see them come out of kennels and into a new home - we just need to find the right one."

Anyone interested in offering the dogs a home can call the animal welfare team on 01273 292446.
