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.

Last fall we ended up with a little runt, 6week old purebred siberian.  The mother had quit feeding them and the owners were feeding all the pups unsoftened, cheap kibble.  The little one was not doing well and we couldn't leave without her.  So home we came with a tiny husky of about 3lbs that wobbled about.  We named her Nijiro which means the colors of a rainbow


We fed her premade raw pheasant patties


and learned about the husky desire to kill things



and to play in water


and talk about everything that might be wrong like not filling food bowls quickly enough


and that the only thing more fun than water is wet dirt, especially when it's provided indoors



and the husky learned how to play with big dogs



Which brings us to the present task of learning to be a sled dog and a potential future of agility


I was bouncing around various breeds to get for agility and hiking, I also have a scooter to pull, but now we just want another husky.  Laughing   A better bred, raised, and cared for one this time though and preferably red.

What a lovely story that began so inauspiciously! So glad you took her home - she looks so full of health and vitality now. She really is beautiful. Welcome.

Glad you took a chance on her. She's looking great. I know all too well about this playground of indoor dirt they like to take advantage of. You will have quite the striking pair when you add that red. Welcome to the forum.

Years ago, we answered an add in the paper for purebred husky pups. No doubt about the pups heritage, as both parents were there, but the living conditions were not great. A fight broke out between the pup's sire and another dog while we watched and the breeder used a broom handle to break things up. I think we decided we were not leaving without at least taking one of the pups with us. Not exactly a rescue but to some extent we felt that way: "just pick one and let's get out of here". The pup we took with us looked a lot like Nijiro: big black rings as a mask around her pure blue eyes. Same determined look on her face. She turned out to be a companion that will forever be in our hearts. I hope Nijiro is the same for you!
