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.

We adopted a mix breed husky a year ago. On Friday I rescued another one, but she is 3 years old. They both are girls. The new rescue one is a bit stubborn to the other one. Show teeth as she gets closer to us especially when giving love. Will it blow over? She showed her teeth to my boy, she was sniffing for something under the couch and when my boy went to look for what she is sniffing she showed her teeth, that made me a little worried. She had been on heat until Thursday, but she was sterilized on Thursday. Can it still play a role? Really don't want to take her back.

On the left is the new rescue husky & the right side is the one the mixed breed husky. Both names are Skye.

Thank you. Smile

Many rescues have some level of resource guarding habits. If what she was smelling for she thought was a toy or treat then she will instinctually guard it from someone coming in and taking it away. It's something you will have to work through. It is unlikely to go away on its own but can lessen as she grows more comfortable with you and is consistently provided for. Hand feeding and withholding toys or lasting chews until you all get to know each other better can assist in keeping tension down between you and her, as well as her and your other dog. If she goes to guard something like a toy or bone and you need it from her you can employ the trade method. Exchange a fish skin chew or biscuit for whatever she is guarding. It can take a couple months or more for a new rescue to settle in and show their true colors after coming into a home.

Trust must be earned through kindness and patience.

It takes lots of love, encouragement and kindness, especially not knowing what kind of an environment she came from. When you give her treats hold on for a moment or two, don't let her grab them from you. If she growls when anyone approaches give her some space and kind words of encouragement. That's the best time to offer her something she really likes but make her come to you for it.
