Three retired sled dogs of Northern Lights Dog Sledding looking for new loving homes.

Scott Hudson has been raising sled dogs for well over a decade and, over that time, has had to retire more than a few.

Once a dog reaches eight or nine years old, Hudson likes to send them to a good home.

"At that age they're still relatively young enough to have years ahead of them as a pet: still active and in good shape," Hudson, who owns Northern Lights Dog Sledding, told the Labradorian.

Scott Hudson of Northern Lights Dog Sledding has an interest in protecting the Labrador Husky.

"Hudson explained the Labrador Husky is unique in its genetic makeup from other husky breeds.

"Historically and culturally, they are different from any other breed of husky that's since been introduced to Labrador. There's been a 'watering down' of the breed over the last 10-15 years, which puts us in a dangerous place."
