I'm an american living in Taiwan now, and i just rescued an adorable Husky puppy. Haven't picked a name yet, but i alternate between baby and girl... so maybe baby girl haha. Its rather depressing how they treat dogs here, and being from a colder region in the states i knew how much work a husky could be. So when i saw her sitting in a tiny cage, covered in her own poop, i knew i had to take her home. I don't know anything about her parents, but i know shes 2 months old. She is extremely intelligent, and its so much fun to play with. They had two huskies at the store, the other one was shorter and stockier, like most the huskies i see on this site. So I'm not sure if she is purebred or maybe just a different breed of husky from whats common.

Its so freaking hot here, and i feel bad for the poor puppy, but I give her all the AC she can handle. Here is a couple pics from the last couple days of my Baby Girl.

Thank you for rescuing her! The rescue I volunteer for just took one of three dogs that got flown to the US from Taiwan and we're so happy to have saved them after the stories I hear about dogs in Taiwan - so sad!

I'm originally from Seattle, WA. I moved to Taiwan for...... a girl haha. We ended up not working, but i fell in love with the country and the people. So I'm staying for a long time.

I do a lot of cycling on this island and its just super sad seeing all the baby puppies on the side of the road crying for food, so my original plan was to adopt. Seeing as i don't speak much Chinese, I'm learning, pursuing adoption was a pain. I tried for a couple weeks, and after checking a pet store out for supplies I saw my baby in there.

Yes its hot here, very hot, but insulation works both ways. I will limit her exercise to mornings and nights when the sun is hiding, and hopefully it will keep her a happy girl.

Shes is already biting anything and everything in site, including me, but being a big guy i love wrestling with her. But I also know that soon she will be much bigger and biting much harder so I need to start teaching her biting is a no no. But MY GOD these huskies are smart. She bites my hand in playing, i grab her mouth and hold it closed and say NO while looking into her eyes. She does it once more after i let go of her, I do it again. After the third time, no more biting. I love it.

I do have one question for the community, and maybe this isn't the spot but ill try her first. Its tiled in the whole place i live it, and she does a lot of slipping and sliding. Last night she fell and hit her chin on the tile. Now she does it a lot and normally its nothing, but this time she stopped everything, sat down, and started screaming over and over. I thought i was going to die from a heart attack. She looked in so much pain, eyes squeezed shut, heart racing. Anyway she maybe was dazed for 2 minutes and then nothing.. perfectly fine. Only thing i can see wrong now is it seems like one of her teeth is maybe in the wrong place. Like it makes crunching noises. She seems happy, eating and everything.. so I'm not too worried. Just wondering.

Thanks for the nice words.

Jesse

It's possible she loosened a tooth when she knocked her chin on the floor...poor baby I know those screams and they're terrifying. She'll lose her baby teeth anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Would it be possible to get a few throw-rugs to place around and give her some non-slip areas to walk/run on?

Dante did the same thing as a puppy. I caught him in the tub and in his scramble to get out he smacked his head on the tile floor. Those screams are the worst. He snapped his canine in half. The vet said to just watch it and as long as it didn't seem infected, not to worry about it as it is a puppy tooth and will fall out anyway, So I wouldn't worry about it too much, just keep an eye on it just in case.

Throw rugs are definitely in the future. I just don't to buy anything that she can ruin with her potty issues. She goes potty in the correct area of her little enclosure, but then she just loves to play in it. So every morning I got an adorable baby just covered in her own pee. But I'm working on the outside part now, its just hard to be home every couple hours. And she is still chomping away at her dried Orijen, so I was just worried it was something other then teeth. I will no longer worry haha.

Anything i should know when bathing my puppy? I got a puppy formula shampoo, but i think she likes to inhale water so i have to work on that.

Welcome to the forum! Beautiful pup. I'm so happy to hear that you rescued her from such a horrible place.

Waking up and seeing her covered in pee, how fun lol.

As far as baths go, all dogs either love or hate them. Mine tolerates her baths. Be prepared for her trying to escape. I do mine in a regular bath tub. I get a towel next to the tub, kneel on it, fill it 1/2 way with lukewarm water, and toss her in there. I also use a plastic cup from taco bell, lol, use something that you can rinse her with so you're not splashing her with water everywhere. Rinse her really good before you soap her up. I'd also get a slicker brush and brush her while she's in there. She will shed a little bit lol. My bathroom was covered in fur. It will take a while to rinse out all of the soap, so be prepared for that.

If she doesn't like baths, try giving her small treats while she sits/stands in there. It has calmed mine down a little bit. Give it to her when she behaves, not while trying to escape.

Good luck and keep us updated! Smile

The only way Khuno will even think about a bath is if i'm in there with him holding him down... I also use the Taco Bell cups Smile The treats definitely help too.

Khuno hates water and wants nothing to do with it! its completely dependent on the dog. Khuno JUST started to tolerate water when it was 105 * F in chicago when i was visiting last week and the power was out (no AC). We felt so bad that we hosed him down outside with cold water at least 5 times a day and let him shake off and go inside.

for the first couple of day he would run away from the hose. Starting the third day, he just stood there and seemed to love the cold water on him.
