A interior shot showing missles in storage this is not at A-2-562 but at SF88 site in San Francisco. Missles there were stored underground and raised to fire. In Alaska they were in above ground storage due to "permafrost" think also some sites in Florida were above ground due to very high water table.
One of the Launcher buildings as it stands today the only part of the site remaining was taken over by local government for the Chena River flood control project.
Another current photo of the second launcher building.

Bob Bishop and Silver the site had 4 to 5 dogs that came from Lackland AFB where all the guard dogs for the Air Force were trained. If a guard and his dog were both at the end of their duty period the guard may elect to take his dog home with him. Otherwise the dogs were reasinged to a new handler and in some cases that did not work out the dog was put to sleep.
