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.

Is this normal? I feel like it's possible that someone may have abused her because she cowers when approached sometimes. Her ears are laid back alot. The tail doesn't wag much, stays tucked a lot more than I'd like. She doesn't even want to take treats right away. She's only been with me for two days but I want to do everything I can to make the transition easy for her.

Sounds like she wasn´t in the best place before you got her. Just give her time and lots of love and then things will come from alone.

As I said on another post, I'm just impatient like a husky! I want her to be happy, frisky, lovey... like my other dog and she's just not... yet. I hope she'll cheer up soon. She's got a mommy that loves her now. santa

The stray husky my mom's friend found was very nervous and acted dog aggressive at first. I think it only took him a couple of days to warm up to everyone including the dogs.

That's good to know.

Izzi just showed some aggession over a toy. I bought both of them a squeeky toy and she wanted both of them. How do I show her that she can't act that way? I swatted her and told her no. Other than that, I don't know what to do.
