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.

This is Karma. She was on Death Row at Animal Control before P.A.A.C. (people assisting animal control) asked me to foster her. Since I couldn't bear the thought of a husky going down, just because adoption was full, I agreed. I am very glad I did. She is looked for a great home!

They will only allow her to go to a home with experience with the breed, or willing to do research, which I was very happy about.

She does have the flu Sad but we are getting her taken care of. Today she is getting groomed by a friend of mine, who has a shop, since she had feces matted in her undercoat. She is skin and bones, but the sweetest girl I've ever met! She has attached herself to Kizmit (our dane rescue) and follows Kiz around like she is momma dog. (All 3 of our fosters have done this, it must be something about her Smile )

I literally brushed 3 trashbags full of blown coat off of her. It makes me sad that they can't even bother to brush out the dogs. She is matted, covered in feces, and has ticks hanging all over her. Thankfully my friend can get her cleaned up without shaving anything off of her. I was really worried I would have to have that done because of the mats!

Here are a few pics of her. I will get more up after she is cleaned up.

I'm sure she will find the perfect home. They are very selective with their screening! && if I feel any reservations about the people, when I meet them, I don't have to allow the adoption either. Which I love.


She seems to be under a year old. She is definitely young. She was never in a house before, and crawls across the tile and wood floor, most of the time. lol.

Thanks guys! It really isn't about me though.

Esmer wants to kill me everytime I bring one home, but in the end, it's always worth it.

She was on the shit list this morning though (esmer) because she asked if we could rehome Rio and Keep Karma. -.- !!!!!!!!!

Haha, I would, but I already have 5 dogs. I don't think I could comfortably afford another Husky. I'd be worried I couldn't afford emergency vet bills, TBH. I have to think about what's best for her. I would LOVE to keep her, but it's not in the card, atm.

Well, last night, Karma took a turn for the worse, as most of you know. It turns out she had the canine influenza, pneumonia, AND distemper. Sad She was vaccinated for distemper, but the vaccine came too late.

She was put to sleep at 5:17 pm, today.

She was only with my pack for 4 days, but I feel like she was one of us.

I will miss her. </3

I'm so sorry! I know what it feels like to lose a foster. Sad At least she got to spend her last few days out of the shelter.
