Sweet Jenna is a young 60-pound black and white husky who recently arrived at the Smithtown Animal Shelter after being abandoned in a park when her owner moved. Jenna just wants someone to love and trust. Playful and loving, this pup still needs to work on her manners, so she should be placed in a home with no small children or dogs as she is too rough for them. Make an appointment to see her today! 631-360-7575
