Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey everyone, excited to say that my wife and I will be rescuing a beautiful Pure bred Husky this upcoming Saturday! We currently have a young German Shepherd and Im really hoping they'll love eachother like brothers!
Juneau will be somewhere around 2 years young when we go to rescue him. I can't explain how excited and nervous I am to get the little guy.
I do have quite a few questions for start-up care, so if anyone would be open to answering some basic questions, i'll go ahead and shoot them off here pretty soon!
Looking forward to posting often and frequently with updates of baby Juneau.
Again, really excited, happy to be a part of the club Lol Smile

Welcome! I love Montana so much! I really want to get my husband up to Glacier, and I have to say that drive from Great Falls to Glacier is probably the most beautiful I've ever seen Smile

Good luck integrating Jeauneau into your pack, we have several members here who are active with Husky rescues, and we're all happy to help you make that integration easier. Have you done a meet and greet at all with your GSD?

Hello Tyler! It's nice to see another person from Montana! I actually stayed in Great Falls, when I went to pick up Loki. I love that area!

No we haven't had the chance, where we're getting Juneau is 4.5 hours away from Great Falls, up in Thompson Falls lol so its a bit of a drive, but i plan to have them meet on neutral ground. Theres a park right by our house that our GSD Kaiser hasnt been to yet so this should be fine. Going to slowly and gradually bring them into the house together. It shouldn't be too bad but it will take some time.

Sounds like you have a good plan, just be patient and be ready to deal with some behavioral issues as they get used to each other.

No problem. It's all expected lol I will keep updated for sure. Look out for more info Saturday night. Possibly a few videos of him, not sure yet. I do have a question about a harness for Juneau. I know he can most likely get out of a step in one so I want either an x back or one with a good handle and good material. Were going to petco tomorrow to get a temporary one. More info on that, we do a lot of hiking and outdoor activities. I want him to pull on a long lead to get him ready for some pulling eventually so an anti pull harness would be counter productive. Anyways, open to suggestions! Thank you

Look at Ruffwear stuff for harnesses. They're a bit pricey, but very good. We have the Palisades packs for both ours, and for daily use I just use the harness without the pack. I also have x-backs from Alpine Outfitters and love them as well.
