Arrival Story: Allie was born in Anchorage, Alaska. I named her Alyeska after a local ski resort but Allie is what we called her all of the time. I found an add in the paper and decided to go look at the puppies even though I had a deposit on a dog at the pet store. One look at the dirty, small ball of fur and it was over. I gave the woman extra money because I could not take her that day and I wanted to make sure they would hold her for me.
